A 15-year-old boy, Hiroshi Kuzumi, has recently moved into a new town in the mountains. The town is separated into new and old streets by the river, and many mysterious local customs and practices still remain, and the townspeople are unusually friendly toward him. Although Hiroshi is confused but enjoying his new life, one person has kept her distance from him: class committee member Nemuru Kushinada. In their few encounters, she gives him a word of advice: "Stay away from the old streets.

As the story goes on, Hiroshi learns about the town's local traditions and legends—most prominently the ones about the local Wolf Spirits. However, something mysterious is going on in the background; people mysteriously "move away" and students suddenly "transfer schools" while none of the locals pay any attention. Hiroshi initially tries to ignore it, but he soon sees a girl with an enormousscythealong with people in strange masks killing someone who is said to have "moved away" the following day. Hiroshi is soon drawn into the dark secrets long hidden by the townsfolk and uncovers a plot to destroy the town.

Very good visual novel (despite my inability to read japanese)
(I will try to keep any spoilers to a minimum)

As stated above, I cannot read the language this game is in, but I still enjoyed this game. The very first scene in the game, a girl being chased around by people wereing the same outfit as the girl above, manages to build the tension quite well, even for somone who can't tell what is going on.

Peach-Pit, who did the art for the game, did a very good job. The character designs look very nice, especially for the girl shown above, though one character looks VERY similar to someone from another of their works, Shugo Chara, but that's not a big deal.

The music is very good, as well. It fits the mood of the scene well, sometimes VERY well, and the opening song, "the beginning of the end" is very cool.

The game has some oddities; one being that, like a certain other work that Ryukishi07 worked on we are forced into a bad end(actually QUITE many) before we see the full story, some being pretty violent, like one where you are hit by a car, and the screen gets more and more blood on it and gradually turns fully red. Another oddity, which is clever, is the sprites for the characters sometimes acting out what is going on, like one character slowy bumping another character away.

It is hard to go into the story without spoilers so I will just say that while it starts similar to Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, it starts off on its own soon enough.

The first chapter took mover one hour to finish without skipping, and the rest took a varying amount of time, all usually over half an hour, so you will spend a lot of time figuring out what options lead to which ending, and will eventually unlock the last story. Finishing that unlocks some extras, which I wont mention, other than CGs.

All in all, while foreign players may not be able to read it, it still has a good story, atmosphre, and some things can be figured out with some thinking.
