Since I always try to get all the ending, I noticed that the "Let's be a better friend" ending have the drawing of a sprout, while the "Let's not think about it" is a small plant, and the "Let's be honest" have a plant with a full bloom flower. Like how Manami is discovering more about herself. Small details, but really nice. I love this game, and I am planning to play your other games. Keep on the good work 


im just curious, are we allowed to make fan creations of the "one night, hot springs" series?
fanart, fangames, fanfiction- 

im just kind of curious, sorry-

yup! fan stuff is all ok, but if you'd like to make other content like articles, streams, &c.) of my games, please link back to the game or me (npckc) in some way when posting it.

YESYESYESESESYSE THE SHIP HAS SAILED!!!! I love the game so much! I had a fun time playing it all ^^ I was really surprised that they were dating like I was freaking out lmao-

Beautiful game, and series. 

plss, translate for portuguese!! I really like your games


I love this series so much! Manami was really relatable (I'm asexual too) and this was just really sweet and really showed that it can be difficult to tell what you are feeling

Heck ya GFs!!!!!!!! Heck ya ppl being understanding instead of being mean!!!!! Great game each one makes the series more awesome. Maybe the next one her bf can figure they're genderfluid or agender (just a suggestion and if you make another game in this series you don't have to if you dont want and i'm pretty sure id like any new game you make. Thank you for this awesome game ^_^)

Ahh at first I didn't understand the strikethrough mechanic, but then realised that it was intentional LOL. and then i was like omg this is actually quite clever omg. amazing game :))


just finished the series and i really enjoyed it!


This series is incredible! It's really inspiring, and I love the artstyle. It makes me feel sad about my life, and make me with I had friends like Haru does. I'm accepted, but I'm not really treated as a girl as much as I'd like. :<
Overall I love this series though, and I wish it was longer!! >_>

This really is a wonderful series!  I played through all the games today and got all the endings on each of them, but for this game I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the third message.  Does anyone have any hints that could point me in the right direction?

Okay, I got stuck on this one too for a long time. It was really bugging me, but i figured it out. You have to hang out with erika first & select the strikethrough text option. I don't want to spell out all the steps, but I think you should be able to figure it out from there :^)

Are you sure that's what to do for the third message?  I could swear I've tried everything but to no avail; I really have no idea what to do here to get the third message/ending.

Had trouble with this too but just figured it out!

  1. Give Erika a call
  2. Choose the strike through option
  3. See if Haru's free
  4. Do you think she liked my present?

Thank you so much!


this lovely series made me misty eyed, especially as an ace transbian <3

The artstyle is adorable and the story was something I didn't expect to get so involved. The post-ending gallery was a really nice touch! I'll definitely look forward to more of your games (and try out your previous ones!)


Manami...I really loved the fact that you explicitly made the energetic "girly girl" type into an athlete, 'cause I guess I can relate to that. XD But then...just...her confusion over sexual norms, and how she can't bring herself to say that she doesn't get "horny", it's...it's really nice to get asexual representation, especially for those who really...haven't been able to come to terms with it. Thank you.


I'm an asexual lesbian, I've always been super chill about being ace but I never really stopped to think how hard coming to terms with being ace/aro for some people could be. I definitely teared up playing this. I just wanna spread some aro/ace validity, we're perfect just the way we are <3


this game was so cute and well written! i'm not ace but i am bisexual and transgender, and some of these points really hit home for me. it gave me some valuable perspective! thank you!


I cried... on video lol kinda embarrassing. I'm so happy this game exists. I wasn't paying any attention what the game was about I just immediately started playing because I was so excited. It really took me by surprise and I was not prepared lol.

Thank you so much for making this game <3


really, really great! as always, a super cute and fun visual style, and amazing story (not gonna lie almost cried), this series is one of my favorites!!

My favourite one of the series!

Hello, How many different endings has this one got?
