About this product:
Premiere visual novel studio Nitroplus presents a new game in their line of uncensored English-language releases produced in partnership with JAST USA: Hanachirasu
In an alternate version of history, World War II ended not via nuclear strike, but after a slow land war and occupation of Japan's northern and southern islands. Years later, violent uprisings on the main island of Honshu led to the establishment of martial law and the banning of all firearms. In the 21st century, the sword is the weapon of highest power in an isolated, corrupt Tokyo. You portray master swordsman Takeda Akane, a young man driven by the desire to confront his rival in this dystopia no matter what the cost. A brilliant "sword opera" from writer Narahara Ittetsu.
Note: Previously Hanachirasu was to be released together with Saya no Uta as a single package set, but now both games will be released separately. You can still choose both games for a discount when preordering.
"You've finally come."
A mercenary in service to the Takigawa Corporation, which rules Tokyo's economy with an iron fist. A disciple of the Karuno-ryu school of swordsmanship, Akane is an efficient and deadly combatant more than a match for opponents twice his size. He desires only to settle the score with his nemesis, Igarasu Yoshia, and will destroy anything that stands in his way.
"I've finally found you."
A mercenary in service to the Hokodome-no-Kai, an underground militia that fights to overthrow Takigawa. He was once Akane's elder disciple in the Karuno-ryu school of swordsmanship. Now he pursues Akane relentlessly, seeking vengeance for the murder of his bride-to-be. Igarasu is a master of iai, the art of the draw-and-strike, and wields an inhuman technique known as the Hiru-no-Tsuki.
"You're the only one I have, Akane."
The president of the Takigawa Corporation. Forced from childhood to behave as a man, she clings to Akane as the only person who wants her to be a woman.
"Don't sulk. You know I love you."
An eccentric woman who shares history with both Akane and Igarasu. She watches passively from afar as their conflict proceeds toward its inevitable conclusion.
"Kill me if you can, but you're coming with me."
Yumi's personal bodyguard. A mighty warrior who has loyally served three generations of Takigawa presidents, he finds himself disturbed by Akane's influence over Yumi.
"Is it just me, or have I run into someone I reeeeally shouldn't have?"
A member of the Hokodome-no-Kai. He fights beside Igarasu against the Takigawa Corporation.
Chief of the Takigawa Corporation's Second Division. As a member of the vice president's faction, she works tirelessly to undermine Yumi's authority.
