Welcomed by the fluttering of cherry blossom, the main character, Brian, starts a new high school life in Japan. Brian soon starts to get along with two girls in the same class after they start to talk to him.

With their help, Brian gradually learns Japanese culture and customs.
He deepens his friendships with each girl as they teach him how to study and spend time together after school.

He gradually is able to survive through the commuter rush, May sickness, the rainy season, and more as he experiences Japanese culture for the first time.

After a particularly unpleasant rainy season, summer vacation starts at last.
Brian gets to experience a lot of fun things, including a beach trip with the girls in their swimsuits and summer festivals in yukata. He also experiences popular Japanese summer activities, such as suikawari (watermelon splitting) and summer festival food stalls.

And what he looks forward to more than anything is the most popular otaku event in the world, held twice a year– Comic Market. He goes to the venue with his heart racing with excitement, having long dreamt of experiencing his first Comiket.
What he sees there is……a battlefield, just as rumored!?

The destination of the annual school trip is Japan’s most famous ancient city, Kyoto. The three enjoy sightseeing among the old streets and alleys, and experience the traditional culture of Japan to the fullest.

Back at school, Brian gets to experience an actual cultural festival, which he has seen a lot in anime. He is ecstatic when he gets to help run the maid cafe booth.

He also enjoys cosplaying for Halloween, which has rapidly developed in Japan in the last few years. With the beautiful colors of autumn in Japan, he deepens his understanding of Japanese culture further.

After experiencing a Japanese-style Christmas party, Winter Comic Market has arrived! This time, he doesn’t just go, but actually participates as a circle!?

With the coming of the new year, he goes to experience Hatsumode.
Setsubun and Valentine’s Day arrive and makes him start to realize that soon it will be time to say good bye.

Just like when he first met her, cherry blossom buds are about to bloom.
What enters Brian’s mind is her smile.

Along with those parting words, he embraces a new resolve…

Japanese School Life reviews and comments

It's cute, but... The music takes the lead, the endings are banal and almost identical (I thought I had typed a neutral end at the beginning), the only interest lies in the little anecdotes scattered throughout the history that (re) learn about the traditions and the pretty sides of Japan, as well as some generalities on the Comiket. Nice, but no more. I would have enjoyed a hero less balls-busting, and a little more story... Deep? A game for those wishing to be confirmed that Japan is Sugoi, that the food is idle, that the Japanese are kawaii, all finished by a super hero WEEB, desu! I mean, play it, huh?

A VN on the same principle as "go go Nippon!" My Frist trip to Japan. A young man, wanting to fulfill his dream of discovering the otaku culture, will study in the land of the rising sun. He meets two pretty girls on her first day of class. They make him visit the city, discover Japanese culture, and there is romance in the air. We can display the text in Japanese and English at the same time. The graphics are very neat and the music is good. Nevertheless, I do not cling to history at all. Maybe because I'm not a boy or "addicted" to anything that touches Japan. So it's hard for me to recommend it but, if you liked "go go Nippon!" My Frist trip to Japan, you're going to love Japanese school life. For successful hunters, they are debug and they are not getting, unless downloading an old version of the game, as explained here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?ID=944232693

So Japanese School Life is a good VN. Took about 15h, +/-1 hour. The Story was 0815, Protagonist is an Exchange Student and meets the two Girls who are on the Cover. But there is a Difference between this UN and others. She explains the Culture of Japan in a rather detailed manner. So not only the Otaku Culture, but also the Festivals, customs and other Things. Japanese Food is Also explained. But let's finish. The End is so disappointing. Based on the Achievements, you think there are two Routes. Ha, that's not true. The Ends amount to the same, only that the Protagonist chooses the other Person as Motivation, depending on the Choice. There is nothing more to this than that. Verdict: Japanese School Life gets from me the Rating 7/10 story: 0815, but through many Explanations and Insights into the Culture better than average. Graphic: Beautiful Characters, good Backgrounds and successful CGs. (Even the Explanations usually get a Picture) Sound: Music fits well with the happening. Does not Distract, nor does it seem too weak. Voice: Taneda Risa speaks Honda Chiyoko, that's enough in response. (Sounds very good)
