(I’m developing an aneurysm trying to come up with a nice way to present these short episodes. Okay, so the majority of these are going to be Yamato’s short episodes but they will feature some other ones because we need to have cleared 17 of these to advance to the end of the game. All of these seem to be happening around Chapter 4, or are flashbacks).
(Okay, so a bunch of routes are locked until you complete some general endings which is what I’m doing right now, SO THIS IS ALL A PART OF THE PLAN, but I should reveal that I wanted to get the BEST END first… instead I got the BAD END, oops. Let me just admit that I have no talent at otome games without a guide. Also, it may seem like it took me forever to write this short post but I actually had to read a ton of side episodes so… there’s gonna be an explosion of posts once I’m ready.)

Yamato is a very blunt and short-tempered man. He comes off as being rough-around-the-edges but of course he’s just hiding a heart of gold. He shows how much he cares about the people around him through his actions though he’d like to deny feeling any sort of softness and kindness for most of the people around him. Much like the others, he has no memories of his life before appearing in this mansion except for this impatience that drives him to want to escape as soon as possible because “someone” is waiting for him.
(Chapter 2 starts to give you choices so I didn’t have much of a choice but to merge it into a character post, kind of like how I usually blog, aha. So, this post is going to cover Yamato’s end too and uh… let’s say it’s not what you’re going to expect. Chapter 2 is also only unlocked after you see this side story attached to it so I’ll throw that in here first.)
(Each of these short stories cost 150 points ;w; I’m going to need to shoot more butterflies in this game to earn points for the rest of these, haha. At any rate, these episodes show some small and cute events with the cast before we go back to the doom and gloom. By the way, according to the flowchart, it looks like all of these are happening around the end of Chapter 1.)
(I couldn’t resist. I’ve been hearing many good things about this game and I’m a fanatic for story-centric games as one could tell from my list of favorite games that I support on the side; Shinigami to Shoujo, Black Wolves Saga, and Hana Awase. I will probably blog this first before returning to Hime-hen, which I haven’t been able to drum up enthusiasm for at this point in time. I’m also going to try a new style of blogging and update by chapters, so let me know what you guys think!)
