Adashima Haru was born in the lap luxury. He lives with his mother in the heart of Kyoto, in a spacious home with servants to tend to his every need. Haru has everything a young man could ever want…

At a glance, at least.

In actuality, however, Haru’s life isn’t so perfect.

Haru’s mother is stern and controlling, and she dictates every facet of Haru’s life. She is adamant that Haru should dress like a woman, and she constantly berates him for not behaving like a young lady.

Haru's life is dull and uninteresting... until he runs into a thief, Kishou, during a rare shopping excursion.

After discovering that Haru is a young man, not a young woman, Kishou breaks into Haru’s home in the dead of night in an attempt to blackmail him – and, in so doing, Kishou’s destiny becomes irrevocably entwined with Haru’s.

On that fateful night, Haru and Kishou are set a task: to travel the country slaying monsters, so that they might break a centuries-old curse that has plagued Haru’s family for generations.

omg so good i can't wait for more and on a cliff hanger really XD?

Haha I'm sorry about that 💦💦
I'm hoping I can release the full version later this year!

lmao it's all good XD 


This is amazing! It sucked me into the story so fast, I couldn't put it down til I finished the demo.

Aa thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it! <3
The full story is already written, so hopefully I can released the finished version soon...
Though it probably won't be done until next year >_<;

Hey, take your time. Art such as this shouldn't be rushed. I can't say I'm patient because it's really amazing and I'm like "WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?" But I know making games can be challenging. I'll wait forever for a good game. 

The game promises to be quite enjoyable. But I can't help but note that phrases like "cheap pick-up line" sound like a false note in a game with the tag "Historical". Of course, the choice of language style is the right of the author, but as a player I would not be against more classical phrases and terms.

On one hand, you're correct. On the other, I feel like strictly period appropriate language can feel a little stiff and overly formal, and I don't think it would suit the tone of this story.

I'm going to keep the language as-is out of personal preference, but thank you for the feedback. It's appreciated!

Just finished playing, and I ADORE this so far! Love the premise and the story so far, the art's beautiful, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest when it's released! \o/

This demo is really cute! The artwork is lovely, the characters are interesting, and the writing is good. I'm looking forward to the full release!


Thank you very much! I'm glad you like the art; the artists did a fantastic job!
The whole VN is fully written, proofread, and coded, so I'm hoping I'll be able to release it by the end of this year or early next year!

The art is beautiful and the story makes you want to know more. 

What happens next ?

It was the best surprise in the yaoi game jam this year ! 

I can't wait to discover more about the game (behind the scenes and in front ah, ah).

Congrats to every members, you did an amazing job !

The story is fully written, coded, and proofread, so I know what happens next OwO
Hopefully I'll be able to share this with people soon!

Thank you very much for your kind comment! I hope the full release meets your expectations! ♥
