I'm not sure quite where to put this. Samu-kun created a wonderful earlier visual novel called Homeward that featured (to my eye anyway) early renditions of Asaga and Chigara and even a slight combo of Sola and Ava in the character of Sora. It's available for free by clicking on his name on the LiS board. The subject matter of the one episode involving Sora (his sister) may bother some people but I found it quite well written and extremely emotional. The links between Nonami and Asaga, and Haruka and Chigara are rather obvious and their development in Sunrider is easy to see. Just wanted to give my opinion on this. I really enjoyed Homeward.
