Synopsis

March, 1956. Tokyo; a metropolis finally starting to recover ten long years after Japan's defeat in the War. Private eye Tokisaka Reiji accepts a strange request from a girl in Inokashira Park.

"I want you to look for something. Me. My true self."

Meanwhile, a series of bizarre murders is plaguing the area, one where young women are disappearing, only to turn up dead and maimed with their wombs torn out. Seeking assistance on the case, Detective Uozumi Kyoko called up his old friend and former coworker, Reiji.

Ouba Girls Academy; a school on the outskirts of Hoya City. Reiji's little sister attends this school, where two young women have mysteriously vanished. Saeki Tokio, the vice principal, calls in Reiji to investigate their disappearance, giving him his third case.

Reiji infiltrates the academy as a substitute teacher to glean information from the students—but that's when he meets her once again.

Kuchiki Toko—his first client, the girl who asked him to search for her true self. Her manner is distinctly boyish as she remarks:

"Heya - so we meet again, Mr. Detective."

The body count continues to rise. What should be a simple search for some students is starting to grow out of control. For some reason, the number of missing people and unidentified bodies don't match up.

Who will be chosen as the next victim?

As the endless cycle of tragedy continues, what mysteries lie behind these new cases? Behind a similar series of murders from six years ago?

Innocent Grey presents an original, psychologically thrilling mystery for your pleasure. Here, your investigative work and deductions directly influence the course of the story. Will you be able to use the clues contained in your notebook to piece together the truth in this pulse-pounding mystery thriller? With a cast of more than thirty characters, there's no shortage of complicated relationships, drama, and riddles. You may let out a scream. You may be this close to letting the killer get away. But what every you do, don't let this amazing work slip under your radar!

Perhaps one girl's smile might await beneath the shell of tragedy...

As many of you may already know, we have been working together with Innocent Grey and Mangagamer to bring you Kara no Shoujo in the form of an official release.

After we received the C&D Innocent Grey sent us last May, we decided to ask Mangagamer to inquire about the real reason behind the C&D - to determine whether Innocent Grey was truly interested in releasing their games overseas. After confirming that they did in fact desire to expand into the foreign market, we agreed to work together with Mangagamer to release a version of the game that had the blessing of the original developers.

By now, you are probably aware of the changes needed for the release. It's regrettable that the lengthy negotiations proved to be fruitless in the end, but we firmly believe that the game can stand on its on without voices. The other change (to the game's engine) should be virtually unnoticeable to the end user. The game has been ported to a widespread and easy to use engine, and the end result was prepared amazingly well.

We hope you will enjoy the fruits of our collaboration with Mangagamer. Please give this awesome game a read when it finally comes out.
If you happen to have any questions feel free to use the talk page here.
