Description

Kawano Hatsuyuki is a third-year student, one of the rare delinquents at Shirosaki Gakuen. He reluctantly shows up in order to fulfill his graduation requirements.

It's December, and the first snow of the year has fallen. In one lot of the old town, Hatsuyuki encounters a beautiful girl wearing a white dress. She's wandering the streets under the falling snow, in search of her rabbit. A few days later, the girl in the dress, Sakura, transfers into his school, in order to take Hatsuyuki along towards the last winter.

With the turn of the four seasons, 1095 days come to an end. Soon winter will pass, and spring will arrive. Embracing memories of snow that never accumulated, the youth stands perfectly still.

From the first snow (Hatsuyuki) to cherry blossoms (Sakura), congratulations on your graduation.

Description

Hatsuyuki is a third-year student, one of the rare delinquents at his school. He reluctantly shows up in order to fulfill his graduation requirements. He is not your usual hetare nice guy protagonist. He has the reputation of being the guy you don’t mess with in school who can get his way just by staring at people, which has the unintended consequence of making everything he says sounds like threats. He didn’t exactly plan for this, but he couldn’t care less since he doesn’t care about socializing with other people. He is playful at times as well, often playing jokes on other people at their expenses.

<hidden by spoiler settings>He is actually the “Ghostchild” that is the leader of all the ghosts in the city destined to destroy the city at the end of winter and vanishes along with it. Since he knows he wouldn’t exist for long, he doesn’t want to get attached to other people. Interestingly enough, he is neither fully human nor is he truly a ghost. He is the host to hundreds of ghosts who died in the hotel explosion infused with intense hatred against the city by his father, and if the ghosts inside him aren’t purged by the end of winter, he will become one of them and vanish.

Description

Yoru is Hatsuyuki’s one year junior and an expert ice skater who practices on the skating rinks everyday after school. In fact, she is so good at ice skating that she once had a shot at competing in the world championship but blew it in the preliminary matches thanks to certain circumstances. In school, she is quite the popular girl and the most level-headed of the bunch often stopping Sakura and Nozomu from doing stupid crap and provide valuable tsukkomi that only such a level-headed person can muster.

<hidden by spoiler settings>Her route is centered around her trauma surrounding her past skating incident. She did nothing wrong but her life was completely messed up thanks to misunderstandings and malicious rumors.

Description

Kozakai Aya is Hatsuyuki’s one year senior and is currently working in a cafe filled with dolls where Hatsuyuki is working too waiting to get into college as she graduated but failed the college entrance exam a year ago. She used to be the student council president and was the perfect student everyone looked up to but not dared to get close to. No one knows what she is thinking, but she does have curious familiarity with Hatsuyuki despite having already graduated and supposedly hasn’t spend time with him before working in the cafe.

Description

Nozomu is two year Hatsuyuki’s junior and the leader of the committee who guides students on their futures. Grew up around her older brother Sai’s guy friends, she looks up to Hatsuyuki like a hero and started speaking like a boy in order to forge a “manly” relationship with him. She is kind of air-headed and easily manipulated by Hatsuyuki, though she is genuinely helpful to anyone asking for her advice. Her route deals with solving numerous troubles of the students that has come to the committee asking for their help.

Description

Shirokuma is the mysterious loli who claims to have come from Russia despite obviously not being Russian. Shirokuma is also not her real name, not that her real name matters since everyone calls her Shirokuma anyway. She is highly dependent on other people, like an ojousama shut in her home surrounded by servants.

<hidden by spoiler settings>The first half of her route is all about her trying to pass the exam to get into the same school as the rest of the cast, with frequent episodes of mimicking weird sounds like bear salmons and other crazy stuff outside of human comprehension. The oddest aspect of this route is, the story starts AFTER the credits with an additional chapter longer than the previous two combined.

Description

Sakura is the mysterious girl in the white dress Hatsuyuki met in the ruined old town searching for her bunny Nemu and the main heroine. My-paced and somewhat weird, she likes to use Nemu for bunny impersonations which includes things like the simple bunny, bunny-copter, old man’s beard, muffler, etc. She is strangely attracted to Hatsuyuki and has the habit of holding his hands whenever they’re together saying his hands feel good. She is also highly allergic to ecchi talk and is prone to scream "pyaa~~~ pyaa~~" and escape the scene whenever she hears it. Otherwise, she attends the same class with him and seems to be a normal energetic girl who gets along with everyone. Sakura claims she went to the old town searching for someone or something, and when she finds it, she will find what she truly seeks.

<hidden by spoiler settings>Sakura is actually Hatsuyuki’s engaged bride who perished in the hotel explosion where their wedding was taking place in celebration of the union of the two towns. She returns as a ghost to watch over him and is given a physical body to fulfill her dream of living together with him. In the end, she convinced Hatsuyuki to live on as a normal person and vanishes.

Description

<hidden by spoiler settings>
"Kawano Hatsuyuki. Who are you?... Are you living, or dead? Well... You may wander around a little more."

She is actually a Nature Spirit who resurrected Sakura in order to fulfil her role of destroying the Ghost Child. She doesn't really care about humanity, the town or the protagonist specifically, nor bears she any grudge, so she fails to explain her motives after "killing" Ran thus becoming his enemy. She actually has only broken the link between the doll and remote puppeteer which had been brainwashing Hatsuyuki towards executing his vengeance. She wields the Silver Sword which hurts not body but soul, banishing ghosts. In the end, she starts to understand people better and think she really loved Sakura...
