Koshotengai no Hashihime (PC) Walkthrough by the Awesome Me

I love this game. I love it so much it hurts for me to know that I finished playing the game. Everything is so perfect. It has the mystery, horror, humour, romance, brain killing plot, gray area, gORGEOUS TRIPPY ART AND HELLA SOUNDTRACK ARGHHHHHH



I can't choose which title card to use so I just put both of them in here.

Warning: HELLA MANY PICTURES AND SPOILERS. Like, there're almost 90 pictures in this walkthrough alone. Most of the walkthrough in this blog only have 50 and below worth of pictures but this one, I can't choose...... I love it too much.....

And I don't spare any single secrets. I will lay down everything in here. Be warned if you haven't play this game and you're planning to play it later. Proceed if you're willing to be spoiled.

STORYLINE

Taisho era year 11 in the season of spring rain of June. Follow the story of a roninsei, Tamamori to understand which one is real and which one is an illusion in amidst of bizarre incidents that happen in between his best friends.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO KNOW BEFORE, WHEN AND AFTER PLAYING THE GAME

-BEFORE-

You are playing as Tamamori (voiced by Sakamaki Ryousuke), an aspiring writer who lives and works at an old book store in Umebachidou. Real name is Mizumori Tama. You will be playing five endings; no good endings or bad endings. It's all depends on your perspectives.

Also worth noting that the game automatically determines the routes you play. The orders are Minakami--> Kawase--> Hanazawa--> Hakase-->Kaoru.

Another note; there first time you play in Minakami route you won't be presented with any choices. His route is technically a kinetic novel. But when you finish playing Minakami and start from the beginning to go to Kawase, you'll get a choice. That's where the walkthrough starts.


-WHEN-

You don't need those save slots at all. Technically you need only 5 of them. Or is it?


-AFTER-

You can review still images and extras from the main menu. You can read profiles of the characters, key items in the game and opening and endings of the characters.

Did you notice that there's no menu for reviewing scenes? Stop searching because there's no such menu in the first place. If you want to watch back certain scenes you have to get access through the main playthough. Bookmark those places  wink wonk :^)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm sorry but I can't choose which screenshots to put into this walkthrough....

My first manuscript was been crumpled away, and my second manuscript was been dumped into the river--
--And the third one was been folded into paper planes and melted into the sky.

Tamamori's manuscripts has been treated in various ways.


"..Ah! I'm sorry, you must be disgusted with me right now. To do these things so sudden..... I'm sorry."

This is the moment when I know that he's the one for me to love and support.


"Ah sorry. Today the manuscript is light as feathers."

He basically just toss it into the air after reading few lines lmao so savage.

Also if some people want me to explain the game in few words it'll be like this:

"You've mixed up between reality and imagination."

"Aren't we.....just a... normal friends?"

"Can the four of us ever go back to the previous us?"

IT PERFECTLY SUMMARIZE THE WHOLE GAME I'M ACTUALLY CRYING


"You too be missing of it. Did you get a cold that was transferred from stupid Tamamori-kun?"

Kawase is so savage and no one can prevent him from saying these things.


"Be quiet for a moment. I'm looking for it with all seriousness. Hmmm Tamamori-kun's merits..."

I don't think you can find one LMAO


"Because it was written so prominently on the manuscript. To be able to say your name with this mouth.... I feel glad..."

He just... showing his affection towards Tamamori since the beginning I'm just wailing.


"Won't you come to my house after the store closes?"

SLAM THE BLUE YES BUTTON SON


"If I died, will you be as sympathize towards me as this?"

Dude that's not a laughing matter....... 


"Just like the old days, you will want whatever other people have."

Always the receiving, aye? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


"It's nothing! To be able to sit at here where you sit, my heart throbs...."

HAKASE JUST BEING TOO HONEST HERE I SDASKDFADASDSLD TO GOD


"You have a poor fantasy."

I don't think his fantasies are all bad. It's just..... weird?


Behind the opened door unveils a white Noh mask.

Condolence to my heart who was playing this part in the middle of the night.


"Can you even write smut even though you don't have any experience?"

OUCH TAMAMORI THAT IS CRITICAL HIT


"Your previous self is far more intelligent."

Lmao Tamamori is just too slowpoke at times.


"I don't even want to see your poor thing! But to not be able to see what you're doing, you might do something weird and that is absolutely no way!"

So Kawase stays in the bathroom until Tamamori done taking a bath. He's worried that Tamamori will pee inside the bath tub LMAO I CAN'T THIS DUDE


"You just take all and not giving back? What an unresourceful trash."

I told you he's just all receiving ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


"I thought so! You're not a killer! Because you hate touching other people so there's no way you'll be able to kill someone."

Yeah the kids don't even know about his clean freak attitude.


"Haruhiko-san, frog man, please disappear from me..."

When you hear Tamamori's voice he's all.... giving up. And that's sad.


"Ah is it.... is this an evidence... of being intimate....?"

YES MY LOVE YESS IT ISSSSS


"Kawase...... how dare you to do such things to a person's belonging...."

OK MINAKAMI OPENS HIS EYES TIME TO RUN THE FUCK AWAY


"Sorry Minakami, but could you get here and tie yourself in this rope?"

10/10 effective would do it again.


"Relax. I don't have an intention to take your Hanazawa."

Who take who? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)




"I give this goldfish to those who I want to be close with. So please, accept my feelings...."

I would take 96 of them please.


"I was waiting, for someone to notice me here."

CRITICAL DAMAGE TO MY HEART


"...I really like your pupils."

Like it so much that he wears the same tie colour as Tamamori's pupils. LOVE HIM OH GOD


"Then how about you confine me?"

I'M GONNA KINKSHAMING YOU


"That's impossible. I hate other people's temperature."

Then how you guys gonna do the do? Hint: he admits that he can only touch Tamamori so ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


"I like women in their forties and have big hips and chests."

That's unexpected. HE LIKE THEM THICC


"Just think about it. I'm a boy. Then isn't it weird for me liking another men?!"

You're in a wrong franchise then Naoshi.


"I just want Mina-san to realize his feelings towards you, Tama-san. That's why I lend him the book. Maybe..... the reason why he committed suicide... is probably me...."

No tears were shed during this scene. Not at all..... *sniff*



Just for a commemorative. Storekeeper's face is so calm I wanna cry. But when you remembered what he had done........ fuck.


"Ohhh good thinking, to dump him in the mud!"

Dump Kawase in mud. He's going to take a million times bath lmao


I'm the guy who wants to replace dead Minakami by clinging to Kawase.

Yup, you're trash.


Is there a woman who's willing to read a smut to a man?

You have it. Hitotsurugi is willing to do such things. FOR HIS MASTER!



LOOK AT HIS FACE AFTER HEARING TAMAMORI'S SMUT AHAHAHAHA POOR BOY


"D-don't worry about me. Tamamori-kun, thank you for stopping it. If it continues... I might be heading to a dangerous zone."

I secretly wish to see what will happen if they continue to read it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) MY BODY IS READY



"You don't have pride! How can you write such thing even though you're a virgin?!"

Is this a callout for most of the fanfic writers??


If I was a flower shop, I'll breed a rare kind of flower and then give it to Kawase.

Damn son that's romantic.


"Anyway, if it's going to be a waste of my time, will you listen to whatever I say as your punishments?"

I've played enough visual novels to know the possibilities of where this heads to.


"It's nothing! The rain will surely fall!"

Yeah he technically controls the weather so it's easy for him to make it rain SO HE CAN MEET tAMAMORI ohmygod thatsweet help


"It's impossible for me to hate Hakase."

Me too frog man, me too...


"Ah, it's not love at all. An unrequited love can't be counted as love."

MINAKAMI LOVES YOU FUCK. Also I understand how he feels. Poor guy.


"Hahaha, you're too big. When we're kids your head will surely bump into something."

Being tall is surely tough.


"Being together with you is far more comfortable."

*screams in high pitch* he seems vulnerable I love him too.


"Will you have a bath first or dinner first?  Or maybe..."

To do you first???? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


"I told him that the person that I like is at here...!!!"

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH


"All of these books are Ikeda-san's records. He records every moments of him touching every children. Is he thought himself as a pediatric?"

No but Ikeda-san is freaky as hell I'm glad that he died.


"Since when did you develop an eyestrain?"

It's fake. His glasses are fake. His eyesight is fine. He just wants to impress you.


Although I do wish to explore every corner of this place...

Sorry I too want to explore every inch of that laboratory but Hanazawa just won't allow it T__T


"You've been mentioned previous example previous example. Who is this person?!"

I'm guessing that it's Hakase. Look at his eyepatch it reeks suspiciousness.


"Don't just give me items of the dead! It's dirty!!!"

Lmao he's totally freaked out with that.


"Why are you spacing out, Tamamori-kun. Don't tell me that you like that grandma?"

He's been surrounded with women of his type of course he likes it.



HITOTSURUGI IS LIT FAM


"This is my lie."

Did he have the hashihime curse since he was young?


"Don't you realize it? Celestial eye goldfishes are my favourite goldfish."

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MY HEAAAARTTTTT


"After Young Master met with Kurisawa-sama he became cheerful. But he became more cheerful after a month ago.... He said that he met with his dear person, gladly telling me all this."

I AM NOT CRYING I LOVE HAKASE TOO MUCH I WANT HIM TO BE HAPPY PLEASE BE HAPPY MY LOVE


If I tell the maids that I thought of him as my slave, will they be furious about it.

BOY I'M WILLING TO JUMP INTO THE GAME WORLD AND SLAP YOUR FACE OFF THE MILKY WAY IF YOU DARE TO THOUGHT LIKE THAT TOWARDS HAKASE


"I'm sorry, I'm really sorry at such time.... I'm really not good with sports."

Hakase is too relatable with me.


Even the sun cannot make the rainy clouds dry, will I be able to become Hakase's light?

HAKASE LOVES YOU TOO MUCH PLEASE MAKE HIM HAPPY I BEG OF YOU TAMAMORI T_______T


It sounds sudden for me, but the truth is, I liked Sazan-san.

Hakase will surely cries if he hears that.


"It's about a hanging corpse at Suidobashi, a story of detective."

Now the whole game plot is a play????? And it's been acted by all of the characters??? Lmao?


"Then let me take the female role."

If Hanazawa were to be the female role everything will be a comedy lmao he's too serious.


"Did you already passed me the leading role?"

Yo everyone just wants to be the lead.


"Then, should I take the female role...."

Hakase offers to be the female role if Tamamori is the lead role lmao you really can't help yourself.


There it stands in the middle of the room, the man in white Noh mask.

FUCK


He has considerably a cute face.

THE MAN BEHIND THE NOH MASK IS A CUTIE PASSED IT ON


Reasons why I love fantasy. Reasons why I like to write. And finally, reasons for me to dream.

Yeah go tell us! *explain* I don't understand....


"Could you pass my message to the storekeeper that there's someone who wants to talk to him?"

Dude you literally talks to him rIGHT NOW


"....I'm Yumeno Kyuusaku."

YO YOU'RE THE REASON WHY EVERYTHING FALLS APART AAAARKSKDSDKFHAKH

AAAAAAAH IT'S THE BEST GAME I EVER PLAY I LOVE EVERY DETAILS AND QUIRKS AND STUFF AAAAAA ALSO AN ENGLISH PATCH IS ON ITS WAY OMG CAN'T WAIT TO REPLAY THIS GAME AAAAAAAAAAA

Now let's go to a discussion part:

1. the whole Minakami suicide thing. I thought that he commit suicide because of Yumeno Kyuusaku's story? Or is it because of how he feels towards Tamamori?

2. Hashihime curse. So Hashihime choose the suitor based on what attribute? We all know that the Hashihime is connected to the Suizenji family, Oizumi family and Hikawa family, but why? It's also briefly explained in Hanazawa route that Hashihime curse is shown through the pupil of the bearer (it'll appears brightest blue that ever to blue) and the bearer can time travel. But why? Also the curse can be transferred to others if the bearer acts towards someone for the sake of them. Is this the reason why Hanazawa won't be able to get it because he wants to power to save the country a.k.a for himself.

3. Hakase's experiment and Hanazawa's intention. It's mentioned many times that Hakase's invention will help Japan to win the Great War if it has enough funds from the higher ups to continue. So the reason why Hanazawa wants the power to time travel is to convince the higher ups? That kind of make sense.

4. Hakase. I noticed that Hakase acts a bit of possessive and downright yandere in Minakami route. And then he can snaps back to his clumsy self. So.... imagine... if there's a chance for a fandisk..... I want to see Yandere Hakase. That'll be awesome. IMAGINE. Him confining Tamamori in his lab because maybe Tamamori doesn't want to cooperate or something and then he just snaps and resorts to torture and violence and stuff.

5. Storekeeper a.k.a future Tamamori. What is wrong with him? Did he travel back to time just to let Tamamori suffers? To rearrange his destiny? Did he thought that by killing his old friends will help him to kick some sense into Tamamori? What the hell Storekeeper.

6. Use of nicknames. Ok this one is interesting. Tamamori comes from Tama and Mori from his family name. Minakami comes from Mina from Minato and Kami from maybe from the authority of the Suizenji family as the head of the priest and also a famous sake brewer. Kawase comes from Segawa but rearranged; Se ga wa = Ka wa se. Hanazawa is a pun of his name. I don't know how Hachiro becomes Hanazawa but the Zawa part comes from his family name. Hakase is a straight one since he's a scientist. Is there a nickname on Kaoru the masked guy? Future Tamamori just renamed him because he kind of forget who he was. Pity him.

7. Minakami's pocket book. In the latter route (I think it's at Hakase or Kaoru route) there's some kind of Buddhism mantra appears on the cover of the book. It's 南無大師遍照金剛 a.k.a Namudaishihenjoukongou. Now I know the relation between priests and Minakami but is there any significant of showing such details? I mean it even appears on the main menu image where Tamamori holds Minakami's book, clearly with the mantra. What is the mantra's meaning? If the mantra is related to Minakami's life then it'll be epic.

8. Goldfish symbolism. You know the fact that goldfishes can detect earthquakes before anything can, right? Let me tell you that the story happens before the Great Kanto Earthquake strikes Japan. Now that's a clever symbolism right there.


I think that's enough for now before I make this walkthrough as a 45-page of plot discussions. Thanks for tuning in and I'll see you in the next walkthrough!
