So this is something I came up with recently because I’ve just recently finished a re-marathon of Higurashi and some other horror anime, and while browsing a folder of mine, I came across a screencap I saved, of a thread at /a/ titled “what if Code Geass was scripted by Clamp”. If some day, I get the opportunity to create my own Visual Novel/ Doujinshi, I’m definitely making this: a Higurashi- School Days crossover. Think of the possibilities and similarities made possible by the scenario provided in the series (by mainly Kotonoha and Rena).
Hinamizawa: Where the Lolicons cry (and die)
Higurashi is like the perfect loli/jail bait. Seriously. Those who have watched the series can’t deny that. It’s got copious amount of moe lolis of which almost all of them got great number of votes at SaiMoe. Throw in the fact that you’ll get a Bad End if you make a wrong move. And School Days, harems series with terrible ending (in both the literal and figurative senses).
Now, imagine if we introduce the cast of School Days into the main setting, particularly after Kotonoha goes off the rockers. This will be the craziest project ever, you mark my words. It’ll be nice if we get to see Kotonoha smile, since she always look so emo in the series. Slaughter can’t be spelled without laughter you know! Insanity is like gravity and all it needs is a little push –it’s easier than you think to have Kotonoha jump off the building.
And oh, in this novel, you get to choose who you want to play as and try to survive the paths ahead. What doesn’t kill you will just make you… stranger: all the better for more madness in this story, seeing as how in its extremes, both School Days and Higurashi contain the most number of batshit mentally messed up and unstable characters. Every character has a survival rate of about 10%, except for Makoto who will die regardless of what path you choose, or if you even choose to play as him at all. No exception. The only choice being who he gets killed by, and in what manner: bad, horrible or terrible end. Also, Makoto can try and increase his harem, what with the increase in the number of moe characters – with the price of a horribly Bad End being multiplied in exponential magnitude (Principle of Equivalent Trade). Remember, the setting in School Days doesn’t have the torture chamber which Hinamizawa can provide. I’ll like to see Makoto two-timing both Rena and Kotonoha. The result, can you imagine what it would be like? Be like? Oh wait, almost forgot Sekai and Sh/Mion. They can form the jealousy trio. We can have Keiichi into the situation (with the baseball bat) getting pissed off for having Rena stolen from him as well. And of course the showdown! Rena VS Kotonoha, each armed with their signature, now trademark, weapon. Rika and Satoko… can act as the mascot nipaa~
Man, that’s a sadistic game – but hey, it could be an anti-thesis of the generic harem/eroge (but I digress). The genre of the game will most definitely, without a shred of doubt, be under Slice-of-Life/ Romance / Horror/ Gore.
Yeah, I’m that bored, to be making up this stuff.
A cookie to whoever that actually read this stuff right to the end.
