- Sasuga Studios
Welcome to Sasuga Studios! I'm your adorable idol, Youko!
D-don't forget about m-me! Ameko is here t-too!
Don't be shy, Kumoko! We're the mascots! We gotta tell everyone what Sasuga Studios is all about!
...doujin circle, visual novels, anime stories.
No one will understand if you only speak in fragments, Kumoko! Ameko, you give it a go too!
O-okay. Sasuga Studios is a doujin circle th-that makes visual novels.
And other anime stories too!
Don't go to sleep yet, Kumoko! We're not done yet!
Kumoko stayed up late l-last night playing video games.
You have to make sure to get proper rest! I know how it is. You get so wrapped up in the story, click, click, click, and before you know it it's 2 a.m. and you forgot to eat anything all day! That's why I always make sure to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
...nn, food. Want food too.
A-are you hungry, Kumoko?
We can eat after finishing our introduction! Nii-chan-sensei said he'd buy us some cake if we did a good job!
Mmm! Cake, cake!
Oh, now you're powered up, huh?! Take it away, Kumoko!
Nmn! Sasuga Studios makes visual novels.
They already k-know that, Kumoko.
Visual novels are story games. Sometimes you can choose how the story unfolds.
And sometimes you can date cute girls like us!
Or c-cute guys too.
Only if you give me food.
Are you hungry or are you tired?!
I want to sleep in a cake.
W-we keep going off track, d-don't we?
Maybe I should just finish this myself. Anyway, a doujin circle is an informal arrangement. Nii-chan-sensei likes it better that way.
He is stubborn sometimes, i-isn't he?
Yeah. He wants to both write and draw.
That's why HERO has been in development since 2011.
Y-You shouldn't say that, Kumoko!
Nii-chan-sensei won't give you any cake if you keep calling him slow.
! My cake! My cake is drifting away...
No, Kumoko! P-pull yourself together!
We're never gonna finish this introduction, are we?
Cake... My cake...
Anyway, thanks for visiting Sasuga Studios!
Nii-chan-sensei! I broke Kumoko and Ameko again!
- Youko (陽子), Ameko (雨子), & Kumoko (雲子)
I'm Youko! My name is written with the character for sun!
My n-name is Ameko. You w-write it with the character for rain.
We're the mascot characters for Sasuga Studios! We were born as teruterubouzu and then we grew into cute girls. Why? Because sasuga.
Youko is bright and energetic.
Kumoko seems g-gloomy sometimes but that doesn't m-mean she's sad or anything. I l-like her a lot!
...I like you too, Ameko.
Ameko can be a crybaby, but we love her anyway! Rain is important to make things grow!
Th-thanks. I like y-you too, Youko.
Nmn. Youko is a good person.
Aww, you two are too cute!
Everyone, p-please take care of us!
