Ready to be moved to tears and have your mind completely blown?

The phenomenal Japanese visual novel Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shojo (Wheel Country, Sunflower Girl) is officially being localized into English for the world to enjoy. What! When? How?! Calm down, we know you’re excited! (So are we!) The official crowdfunding project has just opened on Kickstarter as of July 29! You can find out more about the visual novel’s cleverly contructed story and support the project here!

This project is a collaboration between the game development companies AKABEiSOFT2, in charge of the game’s development, and Frontwing, in charge of publishing and localization, and us! Tokyo Otaku Mode is proud and honored to be supporting the operations of this project from managing the Kickstarter page to packing and shipping your rewards!

With a goal of $140,000 US dollars, if all goes well, this project will deliver the official English version of this mind-blowing visual novel to the world in December 2016!

Fans who support the Kickstarter project will receive a variety of specially prepared rewards, from digital and physical copies of the game, illustrated bed sheets featuring exclusive character art, all the way up to hand-drawn, hand-signed artwork from the game’s character artist Alpha!

Early bird discount prices are also available for reward sets that include content created for this project, and will be limited to the first 100 fans who support the project early on! If you already know you want a copy of the game, better fund the project sooner rather than later!

What else is exciting?

Throughout the project period, Tokyo Otaku Mode will be holding a giveaway in which 10 winners will receive a set of four slim posters of the heroines from the game! See the details here!
