(Embracing the Season)
Introduction: The YaruDora Series
YaruDora is a type of full 2D animation and full dialogued multi-scenario and multi-ending role-playing game series designed for the Sony PlayStation, and it has become a huge hit in the game and anime industry in Japan since 1998. Each game is set in a different season, but the series shares just one identical theme - to save a girl with amnesia. The title is a contraction between the Japanese words "yaru" and "drama" (spelled dorama in Japanese), standing for "performing a drama" rather than simply watching it.
The series has been re-issued in July 2005 for PSP.

It's a girl whom I had a big crush on in high school - a girl who was killed in a car accident....
