Katawa Shoujo Walkthrough

Note: Lotsa spoilers. Probably my last post and thoughts about this VN. A very good one, I enjoyed it a lot!

I initially wanted to run through the game as fast as I can but after finishing my very first route, it left me so sad and heartbroken (yeah, bad ending). So I played the game through and through to get all the endings and make myself feel better. Like I said on my first Katawa Shoujo post, this is a game that you definitely need to play. Five female routes, good, neutral and bad endings, the adult scenes were “artistically” done and can be removed if you want, this will keep you playing for quite a while.

Unfortunately, while there are people who like it, I’ve also heard that some people did not like the game for a few reasons. Some find the title offensive (apparently “katawa” is something that is frowned at in Japan) and some think that this is just an eroge seducing people with disabilities. That is NOT the case. Looking beyond the title and the disabilities, this is about a man and a woman falling in love. For someone who likes simple love stories, I find this very heart warming.

That being said, I hope you try to finish the VN on your own first before doing this guide. Act 1 is a bit long but your choices do not affect the ending, it only determines what route will be taken. I also think introducing yourself in class or not doesn’t matter. This guide is not perfect, this is just how I finished the game, supplemented by a few guides thrown out in the net. But if you see anything that needs to be corrected, let me know!

Kenji route + end
(Yes, surprisingly there is a Kenji end! I can’t remember what I did to get the foreveralone.jpg ending so I had to search it)

- Yeah of course
- Ask about her deafness

Now moving on how to Katawa Shoujo’s “good” endings, I think the good endings hinge on only one or two answers during Act 3 I think.

Emi end
Mutou wants to talk to you after class:
- Ignore mutou “No, I have other things to worry about” then “Give in and let Misha know”
or
- Listen to mutou “I suppose i can spare a few minutes” and “then talk to her mom”

Shizune end
- Do not comfort Misha

Hanako end
After Lilly goes to Scotland:
- Listen to Lilly’s advice

Lilly end
While having an expensive dinner date:
- Mention the letter

Rin end
I think this is while Rin is staying at the atelier of the 22nd corner gallery:
- Choose “Need to understand” then “But if you found someone like that?”

Also, good anons at 4ch posted a huge flowchart showing all the routes and another mini-guide to all the bad endings.

After going through all their stories, I got a mixture of emotions — sadness, happiness, and empitness (thanks to the bad endings). Sure, there are adult scenes but it is an important part of the game. The stories are sad and innocent that I almost shed manly tears. Personally, if I need to rank the girls it would be Rin > Lilly > Emi > Hanako > Shizune. Rin’s route is a bit hard to get and the most confusing of all the girls. I guess that’s why I enjoyed her route. It seems she is confused about her new found feelings and is unable to express it properly. For the rest of the girls, it is kinda straightforward. Shizune/Misha is the last because they are too manipulative for my taste. But! Again, all of their routes are worth playing, please do not mind the title or disabilities. Kudos to Four Leaf Studios for such an awesome game!
