「 This is the story of a gentle love hidden beneath destruction. 」
Haitaka no Psychedelica (lit. Psychedelica of the Ash-grey Eagle・灰鷹のサイケデリカ) is the sequel to Kokuchou no Psychedelica, and will be released sometime in 2016!! It’s by the same staff who made first game, including the same artist, Yuiga Satoru. The official site describes it as a ‘phantasmagoric adventure.’ Though it’s a sequel, the staff have confirmed that you don’t have to play the first game to understand this game.^-^
edit (03/30) — new characters (hugh/lawrence/elric) added!!
A town controlled by two highly influential families, the Falsi and the Volg.
(the kanji in these family names are 鷹 and 狼, which mean ‘eagle’ and ‘wolf’ respectively)
Here, a girl was born with a right eye that glows red whenever her emotions grow too strong.
In this town, red eyes are a taboo known as the Witch’s Symbol. Fearing that she will be persecuted, she runs away and lives with a man in a crumbling tower that stands in a forest away from the town. Living with her is a one-eyed man who calls himself the lord of the tower. Though she hides her gender, the girl is able to live a peaceful life there, surrounded by allies.
One day, a mysterious treasure, known as the Kaleidovere, is stolen from the town’s church. From this point on, the girl beings to discover the secrets of the ‘magic stone’ hidden within the town, and the secrets of her own past.

‘I have no intention of commanding you to do anything. There’s just something I’d like to ask of you.’
The girl who possesses the ‘Witch’s Symbol’ — her right eye that glows red whenever her emotions grow too strong. In order to hide this, she lives in a tower away from the village as a man.

Lord of the Tower (塔の主) aka Tower Overlord idk lol

The one-eyed man who lives with the heroine as the tower’s guardian. A mysterious figure who can erase his presence at will. He hates all troublesome things, and rarely appears in front of others. He willingly performs a spell to prevent Jed’s eye from glowing red, in which he kisses her right eyelid. He has no memories of his past.
‘Geez you’re really so……
I don’t what to do with myself when you say things like that.’
A young man who is next in line to lead the Vorg family. He always chooses his actions while thinking of others, and is respected and loved by many. He is the leader of the vigilante that is made up of young men from the Vorg family. He is always a step ahead of the heroine, and is an older brother-like existence to her.
The man who makes convictions
cv. Saitou Souma (おおおお♡)
‘The son of a leader going out of his way to hurt commoners, huh.
The Falsi must have a lot of time on their hands.’
Son of the current leader of the Volg family, and Lavan’s younger brother. He has a habit of running his mouth, but he is a cheerful young man who often helps his brother out. Though he thinks of the heroine as a younger brother, he’s often the one who ends up receiving advice from the heroine.
The man who chases after something
cv. Furukawa Makoto
‘I won’t allow you to get in my way anymore than you already have. Now scram.’
Son of the Falsi family’s leader. Due to his cold expression and how intense he is, many find it difficult to approach him. He deeply respects his father, Olga, and assists him in his work. Though he is a leader to the young men in Falsi, he keeps his distance and mostly works on his own.
The man who records the journey
cv. Namikawa Daisuke (AAAAAAAAAA)
‘We’ll meet again. Surely, it won’t be long……’

A man who lives inside a church in town with Elric. He requests for the heroine to find ‘a certain thing’ that was taken away from the church.

‘Actually, what are you even expecting from a child like me. You’re basically an adult, stop relying on me already.’

always with Usagi.(;v;;;;;;) He knows a lot about the city, and often provides the heroine with news.
cv. Naganawa Maria
hi i just wanted to mention that the official english title is ‘psychedelica of the aa-nisus. snowdrop and via-kaleido stories for children’ and I honestly have no idea what it means so I left it out of the introduction wwwwwww I’m also not sure of any of the names (like falsi/volg) I just googled the katakana and hoped whatever english popped up was the right way to romanise it lol orz
putting that aside, aaaAAAAAA IM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS///////
it’s a little disappointing that there are only 3 characters who have a ‘love end,’ especially since 4 routes in total is already quite little, but hopefully there’s a good story to make up for that;v;;;; edit: THEY INTRODUCED A NEW CHARACTER and he’s voiced by namidai im sorry for what I said otomate wwwwww kokuchou was really really good and made me cry a lot so hopefully they’ll be able to keep it up!!! (※always looking for more nakige to ruin my own life with♪)
the character designs are (like the first game~) really pretty!!!!! though there isn’t a particular guy that stands out much to me atm (ty again for hino satoshi however w) tHE HEROINE IS SO COOL????? SHE’S REALLY GOOD LOOKING WW when I first saw her design I honestly thought I was looking at the standard shota character that every otome game has lol took me a while to realise that she’s not a playable character( ´ ▽ ` ；) but yeah I’m really interested in seeing how all this cross-dressing is gonna play out!!! tfw ur best bro was really not a bro at all (reminds me of nakatsu in hanakimi lolol I loved him so much in the tv show;v;;;;;) speaking of character designs though — I never really understood what the pattern thing (?) that beniyuri had on her hair was meant to be when I played kokuchou but now everyone in this game also has patterns in their hair wwwww oh well it looks cool I guess(￣▽￣*)
I know they did mention that the game won’t be directly related to the first game and you can play it on its own but
I really hope there’ll be like subtle references to kokuchou haha edit: lawrence and elric make me so sad;; even usagi is back aaaaaa;;;;;;; I like the recurring use of the words ‘despair’ and ‘hope’ in both descriptions of the game!! I have no idea what a via-kaleido story (lmao) is but maybe it’s a connection to the kaleidoscope in kokuchou????^-^”
anyway I’m looking forward to seeing more info on this game!! じゃぁ、まったね〜☆
