Note: if any of you are depressed after playing this game, I highly suggest you read this.

Kimiko learns to control her fear before Kazumi's condition worsens and that in turn makes Kazumi realize that her perceptions of her world is incorrect. Kazumi questions herself and somewhat understands human nature. She feels more comfortable in front of others learning that everyone has their own battles to face and though she never truly feels empathy, she can at least grow up as a functioning adult without being so damn stabby. Because Kento was so loyal in this story, it would be the most logical for Kento to stay married to the now likeable Kimiko who enjoys spending time with her family outside of the house. Kimiko finds a new job and Kazumi eventually grows up into a slightly more empathetic person from all the constant care of professional psychologists and of her now psychologically sane parents. Aya ends up with a man in Australia and marries him there. She stays in Australia for the rest of her life occasionally visiting Kimiko during summer breaks from work. The psychologist ends up writing her book and becomes famous just like you said and Kento's brother ends up marrying a good man which makes Kento realize that he isn't his brother's boy toy anymore. The two reconcile, and meetings between them stop being so awkward. Years pass and Kimiko finds out that her daughter is dying from cancer. Kimiko and Kento visits her and realizes that their daughter is slightly more empathetic, but still not empathetic enough to survive in society. They pull the plug when the nurse tells them that saving her is hopeless knowing that it was the best ending for their troubled daughter. The player later finds out that Kimiko and Kento had another child years before, but they concealed her from Kazumi for her own safety. Their new daughter turns out looking very similarly to Kazumi, but is psychologically healthy. The new daughter grows up and adopts a sweet young boy with her husband because the new daughter is infertile . Kimiko and Kento retire from work and visits their daughter and Naoki often just for the heck of it. They end up traveling the world and visits Aya and her family often. They now have an active and healthy social life. Dr. Hamesaki ends up marrying an old, but still handsome bachelor and becomes loyal to him knowing that she isn't as young and as beautiful as she used to be. There are still ups and downs to life, but at least Kimiko and Kento live like normal people again.

I guess the main reason why I wrote this ending was because I know that people would be sad by the dark endings this game has by reading the comments. The world is not perfect, but it isn't so flawed nothing ever turns out right. I mean this to no offense to you or your story because I very much enjoyed the story and the game. I rated this 4.5 stars because of this reason. I would have enjoyed a good ending where things turn out okay because I personally think it adds a bit more realism to the story. There will be times things will be very bad, but there will also be times when things will turn out alright, just like in real life. Keep up the excellent work!

LOL! Thank you SO much for writing all of that. Whenever people ask for a happy ending, I always wonder what their idea of happy actually is, but now I know! :)

In the end, my intentions were to illustrate the life doesn't always work out, regardless of how hard you try. I really struggled with this because I knew it wasn't what people wanted. Also, stories without happy endings are necessary because if we only had media with happy endings, it would take all of the guessing and suspense out of the experience.

Again, thank you! At first, I thought that the review was an interpretation of the story, but I quickly realized what you intended.

Oh. My. God.

So I literally just played this after playing part one, and in my review of part one I said it was kind of predictable. However, part two was definitely not. I ended up with Ending #2 and I know for sure that after a small break I'm going to play the entire thing again.

And the story. Honestly, I don't want to say a lot and accidentally spoil something, but the story of this game really hits home to me. Definitely one of the better visual novels that I've played in a long time.

it was a great game, the artwork was amazing, the soundtrack was just phenomenal. the only thing i can really be upset about it the fact that the endings are all bad. ending number 2 sends a great message but it still does seem a little upsetting how she does grow to hate her own mother after showing such progress as said in the narration. i just wish that there was a happy ending. still, great game and i hope i can play more from you. :D


redpandagames responds:

Thanks so much! Did you get the Easter egg? It's not the happiest ending in the world, but it's something. If you complete all endings, it will show up automatically.
