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.
Story: Yukiwari no Hana (Snow-Breaking Flower)
Winter. I live in a small town by a port. My life is very ordinary, I just go to a nearby college on a daily basis. One winter afternoon, my friend invited me to a party, but I refused to go because of a girl, Kaori Sakuragi, who lived next to me, whom I had a big crush on. That particular afternoon, I witness her kissing a man. It hurts my feelings greatly. Following the incident, I hear a knock on the door. As I open the door, I see two policemen standing. They ask, "Do you happen to know a girl named Kaori Sakuragi?"
