Marshmallow All the Way Home


  • Language: English, Japanese, Chinese

“Hey, are you all right?”

Kanon held out her hand to Ryou, who had collapsed on the ground in the park. Left without a home after being kicked out, he was taken in by her and given a place to stay in exchange for working at her pâtisserie, “Marshmallow Tree”. The shop had been very popular before she had become the owner, but now it doesn’t get many customers due to a change in opening hours and the arrival of a famous competitor nearby.

He was able to liven up the shop a bit with the help of others, but his relationships with them also got more complicated at the same time. Every day is full of chaos, with unexpected events happening one after the other. What will happen to him and the shop? It is the beginning of sweet and fluffy marshmallow days.

This title specifically needs English region settings on you PC to work properly. It will still run on Japanese but encounters several non-game-breaking annoyances if you do so. See two posts down for my full explanation of why.

----------------------------

To anyone else reading this, am I right in thinking that reference to phantom thieves stealing hearts during the scene where the protagonist meets the character Jake Honjo is a reference to the game Persona 5?

 

(Side note, I THINK the for mentioned scene is still in the common route, but there is a non-zero chance it is in Raiha Raikkonen's route. I'm still in my first play through so I'm not absolutely sure about that yet.)

So why is not JC the fifth Heroine? I just finally completed the (long ass) common route and she is no minor character that only shows up for a handful of scenes. Given that start, I could readily see her being given her own route.

IMPORTANT WHEN PLAYING THIS VN!

 

MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN REGION SETTINGS ARE SET TO U.S. ENGLISH! (Or at least not Japanese. Other English region settings may or may not work.)

 

I typically leave my computer set to Japanese because it 99.9% of the time it doesn't negatively effect anything and some VN's require it, even when they are the official English release. Point in case, the VN Study Steady, also made by the company Marmalade, the company behind this VN, was one such instance of the English version having issues when your region settings weren't set to Japanese (that may or may not have to do with the fact we are using a pirated version with a crack file to bypass the DRM, I don't have enough of an understanding to say why for certain). This title falls into the 0.1% case that it actually needs your region settings specifically on English (again, may or my not be due to pirated/cracked version).

 

When playing on Japanese region settings, several things do not "save" between play sessions. The VNs settings (i.e. Full screen versus windows, volume controls for individual characters etc.) always reset to the default when you start up the next time. The gallery (where you can review CG's and H-scenes) keeps emptying out. "Read" text becomes "Unread" text in relation to the skip command.

 

Your actual save files persist, but will only work while in the region settings your computer was under when you made the save. I.E., my files aren't showing up now that my computer is running in English mode, but I assume they'll show up again when I next switch my computer Japanese again.

 

@Ivan

I would like to request you add a brief footnote to the description area above noting that you specifically NEED English regions settings for this title. (I "edited" this post once to fix a few typos and grammatical errors. If that created a double flag from "at"Ivan command, I apologize.)

Very minor spoiler regarding a link between this VN and both "Primal Hearts" VNs. In fact, I'm not even sure this actually counts a spoiler, but I'll put in a spoiler box just to be absolutely safe.

Spoiler

In Raiha Räikkönen's route (the only route I've played to completion as of when I wrote this), Raiha and the Protagonist visit a cafe at one point. It is strongly implied that the cafe's owner/manage is the same person who's runs the cafe frequented by the all the main characters' in both "Primal Hearts" VNs, though it is not directly confirmed. The BG image is the same for the cafe from "Primal Hearts" and it certainly sounds like the same voice actor, but no character sprite is used (thankfully, as anybody who has played either "Primal Hearts" hopefully agrees with me).

Fun Fact: If you pay attention to the VN's Logo that shows up from time to time between scenes, you'll notice a sub-title in obnoxiously small print (It's technically in the box cover art on this very page up above, but forget reading it, unless you know what your looking at, you can't even recognize it as text.) I FINALLY managed to parse what it says. For anyone who cares, it reads "I'll find my way home".

    • Keisuke started working this year and is satisfied with his life, since he found a job in his desired field, even though it’s for a small company. However, despite the motivation and satisfaction of living alone for the first time, he did feel a bit tired from it and wondered if he should find a girlfriend.

      Then one day, his imouto Riho came to his place. Their parents had come down with the norovirus, so they suggested that she stay over at his place temporarily while studying for her exams. She had always liked him as more than just her older brother and now that they were living under the same roof, that feeling started to become even stronger. At the same time, he also was charmed by her and viewed her as a girl.
    • Striving to be the perfect "Nagori Rokudo"!!!

      She'll show you her superior female techniques.
      A virgin, Nagori Rokudo, strives to be the perfect woman!
      To most men, she looks unattainable, but is actually still a virgin.
      It is the story of a young adult virgin striving for perfection.
    • We find ourselves in Japan, in the not too distant future.

      Crime runs rampant as an impotent police force looks on, powerless to effect change.

      Enter Ren’ou Academy. Within these walls, first-class bodyguards are reared alongside the daughters of the nation’s richest families.

      It is here that we meet our protagonist, Kaito Asagiri. After completing a year of intense training, he is to be awarded with the right to act as a bodyguard for one of the Ladies that attend Ren’ou.

      However, as the new school year is beginning, Kaito finds that his feelings differ from those of his peers, who are all ready to embrace their new lives.

      On the day of the opening ceremony, he, reticent as always, attempts to leave by delivering a letter notifying the school of his withdrawal.

      And all is going according to plan… that is, until he meets one particular girl.

      The winds of change are beginning to blow.

      “I’ve taken an interest in you. I’ll let you revel in that for a moment,” she said, not caring to hear his opinion on the matter.

      “What about this am I supposed to ‘revel’ in, exactly?”

      There’s a quiet passion in his words, a passion that his deliberately indignant tone can’t quite conceal.

      He hadn’t thought it possible, but she has charmed him. He wants to protect her.
