The minori fund-raising project. Help visual novel developer, minori, in completing the Supipara Series!

Mangagamer and minori are partnering up to further expand the English visual novel market!
After releasing eden* on steam, our goal is to fund the localization of their most ambitious title, Supipara.
Devoted minori fans may recall that Supipara was to be released as an episodic visual novel,
but for various reasons, the series never ran beyond the initial episode's release.

Through the sales of eden* and Supipara, our goal is to fund the development of the remaining chapters of Supipara.
Our wish is to make the western market an equal in the visual novel industry, and we need your support to make it happen.
Should we be successful, we may be able to see simultaneous English/Japanese releases of future minori titles, or even English first releases!

When the combined gross profit of eden* and Supipara reaches...
$100,000.00

Supipara - Alice the Magical Conductor

The protagonist, Yukinari Sanada, has returned to his hometown in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura City, for the first time in seven years, and is greeted by his older cousin, Sakura Narumi (complete with maid outfit). He wanted to live in peace, but his life at the academy placed on the coastlands becomes bustling and brilliant while surrounded by a lineup of members with booming personalities like Hotaru Amano, the sharp tongued, half-Japanese beauty, and Alice Kamishiro, the lazy witch who loves modern-science and mail-orders.

Eventually, our protagonist is coaxed into joining the action committee for the academy's traditional beauty contest by his close friend. He interacts with the heroines participating in this contest who are cute but each have an idiocyncrasy or two. Fun events (with their own difficulties) pop up again and again. Your story with "her" about smiles, peace, passion, and love, all while borrowing the power of a witch, is about to begin!

eden* is a tale set just before the apocalypse, after most of humanity has been evacuated to outer space. One of the few soldiers left on Earth, the expert sniper Ryou is assigned to a remote research facility to guard the most important person on a dying Earth. She is the engineer behind the spaceships that saved humanity, a genetically modified breed of human that possesses incredible intelligence: The supreme felix, Sion.

At this odd research facility, Ryou will encounter a polite, if at times suggestive maid, an outspoken and beautiful partner who -loves- using knives, and a major who he would just as soon kill due to their tragic past. What awaits Ryou in this place?

Hiro Hirono is not only a full-time student, but also a professional shoujo manga artist. On the night of Christmas Eve, he happened upon two women. The first, Yuuko Amamiya, was a mysterious lady who continued to wait for someone at the church. The other, Miyako Miyamura, was a girl who had her purse stolen and snatched Hiro's bicycle to pursue the culprit.

This winter, Hiro will waver between his artistic dreams and the reality of school. He will be charmed by the free-spirited Miyako, who is bound by nothing. However, there is yet another girl with her eyes on him: Kei Shindou, whom he thinks of as a sister and a childhood friend.

Renji Asou: A young man who, due to parental circumstances, has moved overseas repeatedly, and has never experienced any close friendships. One winter day he met a girl all alone in an uninhabited train station. She was looking up at the sky, her left eye covered by an eyepatch: Chihiro Shindou. That was a turning point in fate for Renji, who had always been searching for a "fairy tale" like meeting.

Although they both were shy around strangers, Chihiro mustered her courage and said to Renji: "Would you be friends with me?" The two of them become closer through their common pastime of novels. But they move forward in different directions entirely. Despite her unique handicap, Chihiro wishes to try and create a story of her own. Renji, who only ever admired stories, wavers at the sight.

The two of them establish an emotional bond over the course of their guileless everyday lives. However, the omnipresent existence known as time eventually digs a trench between them. As Renji suffers for Chihiro's sake, Yuu Himura tells him:

"I probably know the answer to what you want to know."
"But I don't know if it's the right thing to do or not."
"My answer is simply an answer. You have to understand that."

He tells him the reality needed to grant his dream.
The courage needed to stand at the starting line.
And so, the conclusion to their "fairy tale" took a massive turn.

About Minori

"We always keep minority spirit."

This short, yet remarkable line best describes who minori are.
Today, you could find all sorts of titles when you visit a video game store.

And when you pick a game up, what uniqueness does it hold from others?
Have you ever thought that you've seen the game before, using the same forumula and storyline?

That is why we wanted to create something original, that we can enjoy ourselves.

The "major" mainstream games are of course fun, and made in a way so it can be enjoyed by everyone.
However, we believe that a "minority" that is a bit different from those games can also co-exist.

Even if it might still be a minority, there must be those who can enjoy our games together.

Following this ideal, we have created the game developer, "minori."
Even if it might not fit in the existing formula, and even if we don't rely on impressive decorations,
we at minori will strive to create a game that will provide a lasting impression on our fans.
