Summer of Heisei period 9 (1997), you play as a young boy who just moved to a small village near Osaka. You will meet three girls in this new school. One of them keeps a really deep secret… What secret? Well, if you can decode the title, you’ll guess it…

Quick note - under the Itch client, the game fails to launch (can't find executable). The exe is there, through further investigation (AppData/Roaming/itch/apps/Kare wa Kanojo) but the itch client itself can't launch it.

Loved the game played and finished Sakura's route. I remember playing the Android version and I am happy to finally play the PC version. I really hope you could make a second one of this maybe when their older or something like that. Also I won't mind playing another game like this. Good work on this game.

We're actually thinking about a sequel. ^^

I will be looking forward to it. Love the game.

Hi Max -

I have been converting my Amazon Fire HD10 in to a real Android tablet - installing the launcher hijacker, google playstore, Nova.. and in my testing things out I ran across Kare wa Kanojo - hilarious name, confuses the translaters but clever.  It _is_ a little bit of foreshadowing, eh?  Anyway - something in all the comments and your approach of "pay-what-you-will", and the scenario for the game itself has me certain to read it.  I grabbed the apk and also downloading windows ver. - the images look worthy of the higher-res to me.   I have one question, and I almost hesitate because I don't want to get anyone "up in arms" about the issue..  you seem cool and since I got the info on VNDB I doubt I will offend you.  VNDB says there is an 18+ version of the Eng+Win release.  I personally am not a prude, nor a sicko.. I enjoy anime/manga girls, there's an innate beauty and often sex-appeal to the style, and we all know it.  Anyway - from VNDB I tried to track down a patch or a release of that version, as I will always prefer an 18+ for such a story (it is honestly closer to IRL as far as I'm concerned).  From some comments it sounds like the content was simply removed, but - I like the way VNDB presents it, heh... an option/version.  I know many people kind of dis'd the art - but I like it.  I like all of the characters.  I was on deviantart and I happened upon an artist's impression of this game.  She wrapped up her writing with this:  "... but this fetish fiend found something meaningful and beautiful in Kare wa Kanojo.".  I didn't realize that it was not just a straightforward trap, but rather - a heartrending story about a _girl_ -- with a very rare condition, wherein ... the "special place" does not develop the way it normally would, and sometimes is even very similar to the male "special place".  Now - this person may have been hypothesizing if the ending left out any detail... but implied that she was not simply a "dude in girl's clothes".  Well,  I'll find out.  I kind of hope that there is a patch or an original copy of that 18+ because if the story's good (many call it brilliant), it will support the added realism of a little H.  I'm intrigued anyway, and tra
Apologies for the runaway verboseness.   
Cheers and really looking forward - lot of very positive press, Max!

The game has no hentai anymore since the beta started to come to android, years ago. Reasons are:

  • Such content is forbidden in Google Play and in most of the places the game is released
  • The scenes were completely useless for the plot
  • It mostly makes people badmouthing the game and/or making them miss the point of the story. It's about love and tolerance, not fapping to traps. :D
  • The graphics and texts were even more lame than the SFW graphics of LameKwK (the beta)
  • Why do you need hentai for this?

For any other questions, i invite you to check the official FAQ first on the game's blog. (where you might find some other surprises as well!)

I really enjoyed the game! I did a little playthrough of the game here! (Nanami's Route) I did run into a lot of grammar and spelling issues in the English text of the game. But otherwise, I had a really good time! I think I might do another playthrough and try and get with Rika, just to learn more about her. I'm also happy about the choice made with Sakura. I don't want to get too into her character to avoid spoilers but I apperciate the way the developer executed that part of the narrative. I also ran into a crash at the very end when trying to look through the bonus content. Hopefully that will be fixed in a future patch along with the english grammar! Keep up the great work dev!

Awesome, thank you ^^ I love watching letsplays of my games :)

And about the crash, it has been corrected very recently. click on the button "update available" when it will appear in game.

And for the grammar, i'm still looking for volunteers to correct it. ;p

I would love to help with the english translation! Feel free to message me if you'd like the help!

Would be a pleasure! ^^ Send me a mail here and i'll send you the details
