Honestly, the reason why I did Sakyou second was because I found him super shady. I certainly didn’t expect to love this route as much as I do now, and his sharp tongue only adds to his
sarcastic cunning charming personality. (*ﾟｰﾟ*)❤
Sakyou is the son and heir of the Sagihara family, a family of hatamoto serving the Fushimi clan in Yamashiro Province. In addition, his family are also descendants of Amakuni—a group of legendary blacksmiths formed back in the Heian period. After his family was murdered, Sakyou threw away his status and came to Edo seeking for revenge. While he may look like a sheltered noble, his journey has taught him how to survive and carry himself in the world. 18 years old.
As I mentioned in the prologue post, Ken ga Kimi is split into two arcs. The first one acts as the common route of the game, where Kayo travels through Tokaido with everyone for the fake wedding parade. This post covers all eight chapters.
In the first arc, Kayo has to go on a wedding parade while disguising herself as Hisahime. The journey is by no means easy. As they face numerous difficulties together, Kayo grows closer to the six samurai who are guarding her. However, the wedding parade actually has another purpose. It’s to deliver one of the Five Heavenly Swords, Juzumaru, safely to Sunpu. At the beginning of their journey, none of them knows that they’re walking into a vortex of conspiracy.
Ken ga Kimi was first announced in Dengeki Girl’s Style over a year ago, and I’ve been looking forward to it since then. It’s really worth the wait though, because Ken ga Kimi is truly a masterpiece. Everything about this game is beautiful.
Ken ga Kimi takes place in year 1634, the era when competition over the “Five Heavenly Swords” is admired as the true way of samurai. These five legendary swords have the power to destroy youkai, and the shogunate made an event for samurai to compete over them—the “Tournament of Sword Retrieval”. This year the tournament will be held in Edo, and the season has come. Those who are seeking for fame or fortune have come to gather in Edo.
I’m posting After Summer’s summary first since typing up all six routes in Hanaoni would take some time to finish. I’d love to do the portable Starry Sky games too when I get the chance..
The game opens four years after Yahisa Tsukiko’s graduation from Seigetsu Gakuen. The archery club members went drinking together since Azusa’s currently in Japan. They talked about their unforgettable summer, which was the summer of Tsukiko’s third year. It was their last Inter High and they had a two-weeks training camp before then. The captain, Miyaji Ryuunosuke, announced that he already called a special trainer to help them train: Kanakubo Homare, their ex-captain. The bond between them grows stronger during this two weeks.
