Description

"For ten years... I just stood in place...
Where I should have gone right, I went left. Where I should have gone left, I went right.
I probably could have realized my mistake and turned back quickly.
But instead, I just kept on going recklessly.

I had become lost..."

Narcissu Sumire is the latest chapter in Narcissu series, once again revisiting deeply personal stories of living and dying. It follows the journey of two heroines, both are filled with deep regrets over mistakes that they've made in the past.

There's Sumire, a young woman who had spent the past ten years only playing video games and being a shut-in, refusing to go outside. After a decade of playing games alone, she falls ill and is sent to the 7th Floor hospice. When confronted with her imminent death, she realizes that she will leave this world having no significant memories, completed nothing, and leaving nothing behind.

Then there is Akari, a young woman who has spent the past ten years alone in a hospital, the result of a tragic sequence of misunderstandings and circumstances. Now, full of regrets about what happened, she wishes only to live "in the world of closed eyes" and sleep -- forever.

But one day, the two lost souls cross paths, and in that chance meeting their journey begins...

Description

Age in Narcissu: 22
Age in Narcissu Side 2nd: 15

Setsumi has a childlike physique. She has a taciturn and stoic kind of personality. She loves cars and is knowledgeable about them. Because of her terminal illness, she has no friends and is always seen alone. After many years of receiving treatment, she became totally desperate about everything - life or time, or each day passing doesn't matter to her anymore. It is just like she stated once: "My time came to a halt". Everything is very painful to her because she was left behind alone as the world around her continued to move on.

In Narcissu, she met Atou Yuu, a new resident of the hospital's 7th floor, the hospice, and for a short moment did she come to know something like hope. <hidden by spoiler settings>They escaped together and headed to Awajishima, to watch the beautiful blooming narcissus. Along the way, they grew attached to each other and the girl found herself emotional again, happy with her new skirt, blushing... At the end of their journey, she asked for a bikini, and after a long day of playing at the beach, she went into the sea and ended her very life.

In Narcissu Side 2nd, when she was still an outpatient at her age of 15, she met a resident of the hospital's 7th floor, one of hospice's patients, called Himeko. Their bond grew quickly as Himeko and Setsumi enjoyed their summer days together.
