Welcome to flowchart media! I'm your adorable idol, Youko!

Ameko

D-don't forget about m-me! Ameko is here t-too!

Kumoko

...

Youko

Don't be shy, Kumoko! We're the mascots! We gotta tell everyone what flowchart media is all about!

Kumoko

...doujin circle, visual novels, anime stories.

Youko

No one will understand if you only speak in fragments, Kumoko! Ameko, you give it a go too!

Ameko

O-okay. flowchart media is a doujin circle th-that makes visual novels.

Youko

And other anime stories too!

Kumoko

...so sleepy.

Youko

Don't go to sleep yet, Kumoko! We're not done yet!

Ameko

Kumoko stayed up late l-last night playing video games.

Youko

You have to make sure to get proper rest! I know how it is. You get so wrapped up in the story, click, click, click, and before you know it it's 2 a.m. and you forgot to eat anything all day! That's why I always make sure to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Kumoko

...nn, food. Want food too.

Ameko

A-are you hungry, Kumoko?

Youko

We can eat after finishing our introduction! Nii-chan-sensei said he'd buy us some cake if we did a good job!

Kumoko

Mmm! Cake, cake!

Youko

Oh, now you're powered up, huh?! Take it away, Kumoko!

Kumoko

Nmn! flowchart media makes visual novels.

Ameko

They already k-know that, Kumoko.

Kumoko

Visual novels are story games. Sometimes you can choose how the story unfolds.

Youko

And sometimes you can date cute girls like us!

Ameko

Or c-cute guys too.

Kumoko

Only if you give me food.

Youko

Are you hungry or are you tired?!

Kumoko

I want to sleep in a cake.

Ameko

W-we keep going off track, d-don't we?

Youko

Maybe I should just finish this myself. Anyway, a doujin circle is an informal arrangement. Nii-chan-sensei likes it better that way.

Ameko

He is stubborn sometimes, i-isn't he?

Youko

Yeah. He wants to both write and draw.

Kumoko

That's why HERO has been in development since 2011.

Ameko

Y-You shouldn't say that, Kumoko!

Youko

Nii-chan-sensei won't give you any cake if you keep calling him slow.

Kumoko

! My cake! My cake is drifting away...

Ameko

No, Kumoko! P-pull yourself together!

Youko

We're never gonna finish this introduction, are we?

Kumoko

Cake... My cake...

Ameko

Kumoko! Kumoko!

Youko

Anyway, thanks for visiting flowchart media!

Youko

Nii-chan-sensei! I broke Kumoko and Ameko again!

Youko (陽子), Ameko (雨子), & Kumoko (雲子)
Youko

I'm Youko! My name is written with the character for sun!

Ameko

My n-name is Ameko. You w-write it with the character for rain.

Kumoko

...Kumoko. Cloud.

Youko

We're the mascot characters for flowchart media! We were born as teruterubouzu and then we grew into cute girls. Why? Because of course we did.

Kumoko

Youko is bright and energetic.

Ameko

Kumoko seems g-gloomy sometimes but that doesn't m-mean she's sad or anything. I l-like her a lot!

Kumoko

...I like you too, Ameko.

Youko

Ameko can be a crybaby, but we love her anyway! Rain is important to make things grow!

Ameko

Th-thanks. I like y-you too, Youko.

Kumoko

Nmn. Youko is a good person.

Youko

Aww, you two are too cute!

Ameko

Everyone, p-please take care of us!

Youko

Now let's go draw some pictures!
