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".

    • I vividly remember my first time with an escort.

      It was last summer, my wife and I divorced after twenty years of married life. I worked my ass off so I could support us so she wouldn't have to lead an embarrassing life of poverty. It was all for naught, though. She eventually confessed that she found me repulsive, and that she was cheating on me with a guy over twenty years my junior. I was stunned, but I wasn't angry. I wasn't sad. I didn't even find it to be all that strange. The years I spent toiling away as a wage-slave stripped the love I had for my wife along with it.

      That's precisely why I felt downright merry the night following our divorce. I went out drinking on my own, wandering around downtown for the first time since my bachelor days. The city had changed just like I did. As I watched the youngsters who now laid claim to downtown, I realized someone was looking at me.

      The gaze belonged to a girl much younger than myself. At first glance, she seemed like the kind of girl who'd look disgusted if she had to sit next to a middle-aged guy like me on the train. But she made no effort to distance herself. In fact, she approached me... "Looking for a good time?"

      And so began the tale of a divorcee with an unparalleled sex drive and his escort escapades with five young, Saintly Sluts.
    • Shuuya lives with his younger sister Mirai and attends Academy Tengyou Daini. However, their peaceful days come to an abrupt end as their world is taken over by an alternate world called Waibin Sekai – one where angels and demons battle each other and monsters called ‘creators’ roam freely. The students are forced to decide to ally with the angels, side with the demons or do neither. No matter which choice they make, they would be hard pressed to survive in this dangerous world.
    • With his parents moving to America for work, Jinno Kyouji returns to his hometown, Kurehito City, after several years of absence to live with his mother's cousin, the free-spirited Saitama Yamiko. There, he encounters several girls he shares a history with.

      Kazuyagi Akane, the strong-spirited tomboy he grew up with.
      Namiki Aoi, a gloomy girl who's Akane's best friend.
      Misono Kiika, a graceful, good-natured classmate of his from his old school.

      In three years of absence, his hometown and its people have changed ever so slightly. Despite some hiccups, Kyouji's peaceful days in his hometown begin.

      At least until he meets a mysterious girl on his way to his first day at school. Violet hair. Large, striking eyes. Skin that's paler than the driven snow.

      "Welcome home," she says. "My name is Yuka. Remember it."

      And wherever Yuka is, one mysterious, inexplicable figure is always nearby—a monstrous man by the name of Gore Screaming Show.

      Kyouji's encounter with these two figures marks the end of his peaceful days—as they bring madness and despair into this world. Will Kyouji and the girl he loves be able to escape and return to their peaceful days? Or will they—
