Kara no Shojo 2 – Demo Now Available!

twittercard

Today we’re happy to announce the release of the demo for Kara no Shojo 2, sequel to Kara no Shojo and Cartagra! This time around we’re trying something a little unusual, not only do we have a standard, downloadable version (also Mac and Linux versions!) available for you all to try, but we’ve also got a version of the demo that you can play right in your browser. Both versions of the demo feature the same content, so feel free to try either one (or both if you’re so inclined). Visit the Kara no Shojo 2 homepage for download links and more information!

Also a bit unusual about this particular demo: it features completely original content––this isn’t just the first 10-15% of the game, it’s basically a prologue to the game. Kara no Shojo 2 can be played without having played the original, though familiarity with the characters does help. Though the demo does not feature any erotic content, it is not for the faint of heart.

In the period known as “pre-war,” when Japan was taking its first steps into conflict…

In the snowy mountains of the west, there is a settlement called Hitogata.

In this place, with its strange custom of worshipping a clay doll called Hinna-sama, a woman is killed on the night of a festival.

The villagers unanimously refer to this incident as “Hinna-sama’s Curse.”
They say that she was cursed for worshipping Hinna-sama despite being unworthy.

December, 1957.

It’s been almost two years since Kuchiki Toko was abducted from her hospital room.

Tokisaka Reiji’s sister, Yukari, savesa man attempting to commit suicide.

The man is a victim of “Hinna-sama’s Curse,” which has resurfaced in the present…

Tokisaka Reiji acts to sever the delusions that span the war.

All the while carrying his own delusions about Toko in his heart…
At the same time, a religious group that was thought to have disbanded six years ago begins to move again.

What could it be scheming?

Even if Heaven brings down a curse, it is human hands that enact it.

  1. Appreciated. Will wait until I have actually finished Cartagra and the first KnS, but will definitely have a look, especially since it’s pretty much a separate chapter, as you said.

  2. If the demo features original content, does this mean that it’s not included in the main game?
    I actually like to have my games complete. If the demo is a prologue, will it be at least included into the game installer so I can choose to start it from a separate shortcut?

  3. A word of warning – if you didn’t play Kara no Shojo, start with Kara no Shojo demo, not KnS2 demo.
    So many spoilers in first 5 minutes of KnS2 demo, it’s weird.

  4. I couldn’t help but notice that the web browser-based demo isn’t available on the Kara no Shoujo 2 product page, only on the dedicated KS2 sub-page…

  5. Not sure if this is the best place to report this but I have noticed that there is a save bug in the demo.

    It seems that when you save the game it doesn’t actually save any information about whether or not you have read any of the character or evidence entries in the notebook. Causing all of them to appear as unread (“NEW” appears next to them) whenever you load a save.

    This is certainly not game breaking, but is quite annoying as entries also gets the “NEW” tag added to them when they have been updated with new info. Having all of them marked as such whenever a game is loaded makes it hard to keep track of what entries actually have new info and with ones don’t.

    I’m playing the demo on Windows 10, but I assume the same bug is present in all of the demo versions on all supported operating systems.

    • Oops, I guess that’s a bit of an oversight. It does work for the main game though (at least it does now!), so don’t worry. Thanks for bringing that up though!

  6. Do I get to see Toko again? :'(

  7. When I try to download (the Windows demo version) from the main page, it always shows the following error message:

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

    AccessDenied
    Access Denied

    While the Web Demo does work, but sound (voices, BGM etc) on the Web demo doesn’t work (plus I have pretty limited internet usage time, so I do not wish to spend a long time playing the Web Demo, I’d rather download an actual version where I can play offline).

    Could someone please restore the links (it’s not just the windows version, but same for mac and linux versions as well).

    • Just a correcton, the actual error message looks like this:

      This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

      AccessDenied
      Access Denied

    • I’ve looked around, and found the solution.
      For those of you having trouble downloading the trial from Kara no Shoujo 2 homepage, do the following:

      1. Go to Kara no shoujo products page in mangagamers website:

      http://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=0&product_code=139

      2. Login to your account (if you don’t have an account already, then register)

      3. Click on “Trial Version Download”

    • Hm, sounds like something might have gotten moved or otherwise mixed up. I’m looking into it.

  8. Where can I find the save data folder for this game?

    I’ve already saved at least once for Kara no Shoujo 2 in the game, but it’s not in the appdata folder location (seems really weird, since the trial version of Kara no Shoujo 2 saves are in appdata folder).

    For the other games in the series, the save files are in following location:

    Cartagra:
    C:\Users\[username]\Appdata\Roaming\Mangagamer\Cartagra

    Kara no shoujo:
    savedata folder in the game folder/directory

    Kara no shoujo 2 (Trial version, not full game)
    C:\Users\[username]\Appdata\Roaming\Mangagamer\KSs2Trial

    Still trying to look for the save files location, if anyone could find out, it would be much apreciated.
