Air

Air

Kunisaki Yukito’s deceased mother left him with the doll and her last wish that Yukito look for the “girl in the skies” because it is his destiny to save her. Only half-understanding what his mother meant, Yukito has been traveling across Japan, vainly searching for this myth-like girl his mother told him about. His latest destination is a small, sleepy town where summer has just arrived; and his encounter with a young girl named Misuzu there sets the wheels of destiny turning….

    Thanks Admin!!!never watched the Anime but heard good things about it

  2. Durlag says:

    Just a heads up here: The linked beta 2.5 patch is beta for a reason: parts of it are still unedited.

    There’s another, complete patch by Winter Confetti, look it up. This game is unique in the way that it has two separate translator groups making patches. winter Confetti’s is finished, Gao Gao’s (the one linked) is still being edited. As for their quality, as far as I could see, the reaction were kind of mixed, so I don’t know.

    holly balls that toke like what? 10 or 14 years to translate

    • Lemon says:

      It’s because Visual arts sent a cease and desist notice to the group who started translating it way back. and since then, I thought no one was ever going to touch this game. I guess I was wrong. didn’t reliase there were still people actually attempting to make an english patch.

  4. Fate says:

    This game is very old now but very famous for being the start of many things at Key. Still it hasn’t aged terribly well and I am going to give it a pass as I read it a long time ago and didn’t think very highly of it then either.

  5. Xarvi says:

    Damn.. Seen the anime, not sure if I can bring myself to read this :/

    • Chunli257 says:

      I know how you feel, I saw the anime, and for a long time, even now I’ve been very bitter to the ending of the anime.

      [Spoiler! Don’t read pass this point.]

      I have always hated that Misuzu died in it, and Yukito reincarnated just to try again, to pretty much fail only really being able to just make her at peace…I would play this game 10x over if it let me save her life this time, and have a Truly happy ending, if anyone can tell me if I can please say that there is a chance, because I love Kanon, and Clannad, I just want to save her!

      • cookie with chocolate says:

        i agree. this formulea they designed and used works great, but at the same time i hate it. make the story as sad as possible, yet without someone / something to rage at.
        keeps the story with you for a long long time.
        seen it once, 4 years ago, yet remember it clearly. unlike other stories.
        and altough it will probably be a tearfest i will still read this. starting out with the other routes.

      • Ariis says:

        Heh. Along that line, despite how much I prefer happy endings myself, I found Clannad’s sad ending to be better than its happy one.

  6. -M- says:

    Finally… After waiting several days, or a couple of weeks, maybe, this VN finally uploaded. Thanks admin. You’re one of… no, you’re definitely the best at presenting VNs.

    Well, the description is similar with the anime version. I’m assuming this VN at least at the same rate with the anime, although I haven’t seen the last scene of the anime. I presume this will have many sad scenes, so maybe we should prepare a box of tissue before playing this VN. 🙂

  7. John123 says:

    Hi,I get the error unable to format text, anybody knows how to solve that?

  8. Kuroi says:

    OH YES.

    I had almost lost any hope to see this game fully translated one day. The anime was nice, but you could see that a LOT was left out with only 12 episodes.

    Thanks a lot for the upload, that totally made my day. And much more.

    *starts the download and prepares to cry a lot*

  9. FFTHEWINNER says:

    Thanks a lot admin!!!!

    to the users here,which translation of the two is generally accepted to be the better one?

  10. RANDOM_HERO says:

    Took it’s sweet time but it’s now here, let’s enjoy.
    Thanks a bunch.

  11. nicetomeet says:

    not sure if there’s already someone who ask this, but I want to make sure before play this
    does Air VN has the same ending with the anime? anyone know?

  12. nobody says:

    I’ve cried a lot in the anime , i think the game is more sadder but I can not pass this game thank you admin for your hard work you are the best.

  13. sellos says:

    i thought about it a lot but… oh well its heavy cry time…

  14. Phanteon says:

    Finally after so long.

  15. Manlytears says:

    every key title is a tearfest, and make me wonder why they left the majority of the story in the anime adaptation?

    • admin says:

      Time constraints.
      Major Key VNs are HUGE and they had only 12 episodes for Air anime to squeeze story in. For comparison, Clannad had 48 episodes and they still had to make OAVs for major side-routes and totally skip few minor ones.

  16. GhostInside says:

    Admin you are simply fantastic. A+++

  17. Black Sword Slasher says:

    So, do I need both winter confetti’s and the beta 2.5 patch to fully translate the game?

    • Chakra says:

      No, you don’t need both translation patches, just one or the other. Winter Confetti’s translation is already complete (released on 2014-04-18) and not in beta state like the one from Gao Gao Translations at the top of this page which at the moment still contains some unedited sections.

  18. Black Sword Slasher says:

    Sorry for DP. BTW, is this an eroge??

  19. usamiharu says:

    Sigh…if only i can read japanese i might be playing many eroge/vn right now with seperate PC,laptops -_-..*really wanted to play the SISTERS*

    Oh…well i try to play this one watch the anime before but it’s pretty hard to understand they skipped many things…

  20. Flyer says:

    A decade? I don’t care! I watched the anime twice, i am sure the VN will have a lot more contents. Onward!

  21. Xeonace says:

    Woah!!!! I didn’t think i’d be able to see this here i’ve been waiting for so long.right now i’m trying to complete all the visual novels from KEY because they’re so GOOD XD

  22. ciccio566 says:

    thx 4 ur work admin,i have a question, r u going to post Mamankyoushitsu?

  23. Dudez says:

    One question though, Why is it titled “Air”? :/

  24. Dudez says:

    Oh and, Imopara is already done, are you going to post it soon? :3 I’m kinda craving for some WINCEST right now X3

  25. Dudez says:

    You mean you Got Rewrite Aswell O_O!!! WOW man your a BAWS!!!

  26. Tegual says:

    Air has a few ending and is a lot more fleshed out than the Anime saying that i don’t remember if there are really any truely happy ending but it is still a good game

  27. Brymza says:

    Hi admin, why did you upload the Gao Gao beta patch? Winter Confetti has a 100% patch that is edited and in proper english (gao gar is mostly MT)

  28. Balano says:

    So whenever I load it up, I get through the opening bit (i.e. click on dream, some text appears) but when the text box loads, before any words appear the game crashes. Anyone know a solution?

  29. metalmamemon says:

    About english patch AIR_beta2.5.zip is that from Gao Gao Translations right?
    There a complete/ New translation continuing retired translator
    Question why not use new translation from Winter Confetti?
    is there anyone could tell me…

  30. erogegamer says:

    why my air cannot run normally
    it hang and later not responding after a while
    pls solve this problem

  31. triv says:

    I’ve done all three starting paths and got all the endings, but still can’t start the Summer path, is this game broken?

  32. Malaygamer says:

    Is this game the standard edition or the all ages edition?

  33. Terion says:

    Is this partly translated or fully translated?

    If partly: What exactly is translated?
    Saw this one in the “partly translated” section since a Long time and since you put it into the “News” i gues there was some more Translation done?

  34. ChaosStar says:

    Anyone know whether this has ANY happy endings at all? The anime was one of the most depressing things I’ve ever seen. Granted, it does stick with you…but not necessarily in a good way.

  35. joao says:

    does this work on windows 8?

  36. silver says:

    an important question:
    does these vn works on Windows 8 or Linux?
    that’s because i’m about to replace my old pc with a new one…

  37. Senpai says:

    come on wtf seriously another favorite anime put to shame ;-;

  38. Keima says:

    admin is this VN work with windows 8?
    i want to play this so badly….XD
    and can i ask for a VN list that can be played in Win 8?

    Thanks

  39. someguy says:

    patch link is dead!

  40. frekky says:

    Since a lot of you seem to not know or understand this. The VN came BEFORE the anime.

  41. Gi says:

    Hello, is it possible to upload a family version of Air? I heard that it exists.

    I wanted to give the game to someone to play who loved the anime, but they will despise VNs forever if they find out that they’re mostly hentai games. No to mention that they’ll stop playing at the very first occurence of ero. And since they’re a girl, what will they think of me for recommending such a game? That I’m a pervert, lol.

  42. Marco says:

    I can’t play this vn , whenever i choose new game => dream , it just froze ( sorry for my broken Eng )

    • V says:

      Girls play eroge too. Really the only difference from a romance novel is that it is visual in nature. Some are more “story that happens to have adult interactions” and some are more “smut that tries to have a story”. Same as other kinds of media. Shame that most are clearly written and illustrated for a male audience though. Still, if I’m an example, if the story is good and the art isn’t terrible, I will read it.

      Yes, I know that the post is almost a year old, but I thought I’d put this out there.

  43. Apexfury says:

    How come whenever i click on the link for the free download it goes to some site trying to make me pay?! how can i just get the game?!

  44. blue says:

    GaoGaoTranslations has released their final patch, how about updating the patch link here ?

  45. stefan says:

    how do i install this?

    i dont have any iso or image datei i can mount with deamon tools or virtual clone drive?

    i changed the locale to japanese already…

  46. anon says:

    How do you install the WinterConfetti english patch with this “no install needed” copy of Air? Do you just choose the folder where you extracted Air’s files to as the install location?

    • anon says:

      nm, i figured out that i was right. installing it into the folder you extracted to got it working 🙂

      • liance says:

        can someone clarify how to use the WinterConfetti patch, I’ve extracted/installed but for some reason it won’t let me copy the Patch contents into the CD_2 folder or drive, it keeps saying 0 MB memory left and that it has no space for me to copy/paste new files there.

  47. Neolink_03 says:

    Thanks a lot !!! ^_^

  48. Misaki says:

    Thank you very much for this beautiful visual novel. I hoped it will show up on Steam sales together with Clannad but it will probably not gonna happen because hentai scenes. 🙁
    Anyway I’m really happy for being able to play it this way at least. My japanese skill is not so high yet, that’s why I’m grateful for English patch. My OS is Win10 and I copied files from English patch on this site to game folder. It works great. Only function for rename main hero is inactive, but I don’t mind. Fonts work great and same goes for full Windows mode. I’m unable to rate quality of translation, because English is not my mother language, but until now I had no problem with understanding story and didn’t notice any big nonsenses.
    I finished first bad ending and I’m looking forward to see others possible ways. 🙂
