D.C. – Da Capo

Da Capo

The island of Hatsune, where cherry blossoms are in bloom all year long.
There are people who study such mysterious cherry blossoms,
and also there are people who lead normal everyday lives.
Even if the cherry blossoms never stop blooming, there is no difference in people’s lives.
A girl came back as if she was guided by the scent of those cherry blossoms.
Kazami Academy is located in the middle of such a normal world.
There was a boy with the mysterious power to produce Japanese sweets out of nowhere and to experience other people’s dreams.
Far from being ordinary, yet far from being extraordinary.

—- The dream that her favorite wizard dreams about —-

The school idol who loves Japanese sweets,
the demanding, yet clingy sister,
the spaced-out friend,
the old friends in the dreams,
and the friend who is called “a puppy dog”.

— The beginning to the end —

When they all meet at the academy near the graduation time, the love story begins.

— The end invites the beginning —

The cherry blossom petals are dancing in the air.
They are dancing as if there is no tomorrow.
Extremely slowly,
without even a sound.
The petals, which remind me of wings of an angel, make me think about eternity.

“What a poet I am……”
The cherry blossoms have been in constant bloom since 7 years ago.
Junichi Asakura is a 3rd year student at Kazami Academy on Hatsune Island. When he looks at those mysterious cherry blossoms, he either thinks it’s a joke or he is reminded of Japanese sweets.
As graduation draws near, he walks the street lined with cherry blossom trees with his step-sister, Nemu Asakura.

“I’m exhausted……”
“Come on, brother, it’s almost Spring break!”
Holding his hand, Nemu starts running as the bell around her neck jingles.
“After the graduation, I’ll go on and have to study more……”
Junichi looks up to the sky while giving a sigh. Although he doesn’t sound too enthusiastic, he has a smile on his face.

As they prepare for the next chapter of their lives, there will be farewells but also there will be new encounters. And besides, there’s still time left at this academy.

As he looks up at the mysterious cherry blossoms, he dreams of the spring to come.

  1. can anyone pls help me? i’ve been playing this vn for a while now. today i tried playing it on fullscreen. but the screen just turned black and then the game exists. i cant seem to get into the game anymore. someone pls help. i’ve spent hours behind it and dont wanna redo it.

  2. Generic, generic, generic.
    That’s the best way to describe this charage-like van. I’ve played boring uneventful arcs but Moe’s reaaaally takes the cake!!

    That one’s like: Half-asleep xylophone playing girl (x9), 0 development, h-scene, cliched childhood bs, the end.

    All routes are so meh, so repetitive and drama is so cheap. Miharu’s was passable but end is predictable anyways. Maybe my choice would be Mako’s, the boyfriend pretend thing is nothing new but that super rushed sex was so wtf. Also shortest route.

    As for the anime, Junichi looks darker, Mako is all green and Suginami looks sexy, lol.

    Did you know Yoriko is Ichiko from Otoboku and Sakura is Aoba from Kazoku keikaku? Mindblowing!

  3. Whatever you do. Please. Don’t watch the anime. Never watch the anime. Is garbage and doesnt make any justice to this game.

  4. This game is confusing as hell. Finished 3 of the paths and not 1 made any sense at all. Really disappointed in this one.

  5. What is the difference between the one click download and the four seperate RAR files? I keep seeing this on all of the downloads …

  6. I checked around and Tamaki Konomiya dose not have a route. WHY!!!!!!!! so stupid i would love to have her as a love intrest

    1. Ok I was wrong Tamaki Konomiya dose have a route but it is in D.C.P.C. ~Da Capo Plus Communication but as far as I know there is no known english patch or version out

  7. Hm… it seems like my friend already finished Moe and Mako routes when he played here some time ago. So, the condition to unlock Sakura’s last scenario is finished 5 main heroines… I’ll replaying those two routes for a while to know the stories, then play Misaki route 🙂

  8. Finished Kotori route (3/8) and got Sakura’s final scenario. I think her route is better than Nemu and Sakura, even though each scenario has its own pros and cons. Next: Mizukoshi sisters route 🙂 before unlocking and playing Misaki route 🙂

  9. Finished Sakura route (2/8) just an hour ago. Her story is full of fun (hm… noisy, too) but some mystery will be answered on her route, though.

  10. Just finished Nemu route(1/8, if Suginami route ^^ counted as well) even though I still need to load the save to complete her CG. Well, what can I say, the story wasn’t bad thanks to Junichi’s friends, but personally I don’t like brother-sister romance, even though they aren’t related by blood, just for the sake of completing the game. Her plot itself is mysteriously exciting at near the end of the route, even though I’m not completely understand about the ending. But it has funny things, and I really laugh when I read one of the questions asked at the exam ^^.

    Thanks for Circus for providing this game, MangaGamer who was translated this, the walk through at gamefaqs, and for admin who was uploaded this game.

  11. someone please could help me find Sakura’s last scenario?
    i just finished her route, picked all missings stuff, except the -/-, i finished Nemu and have 100% on her, and replayed (skipping) sakura’s multiple times
    so what am i missing?

    pretty cool game

  12. hi ^^
    i would like to know please:
    everybody say that this VN is sad, is it because
    the endings are really tragic or just because there’s
    many sad moments (but do not end so bad like Kanon for exemple)?

  13. The Nemu ending SUCKS! I want to MURDER that little bitch, Sakura!!!!! I hate shitty endings like that… I’m fine with drama, but I can’t see the aftermath of a romance with an ending like that! It’s worse than Saber’s true end in F/SN…. Dammit, I screamed, and cried… NONONONONONOOOOOO!!!!

    Also, I hope the captcha I have isn’t foreshadowing of something… “too late”

  14. I’m going to elaborate on the instructions a little for anyone who’s waiting for the download to finish. I’m using 7zip, win7, and have already changed my applocal to Japanese.
    (if you’re unsure how to change your applocal go to the FAQ page)

    -Download all 4 .rar files and put them into the same folder. then inside that folder select all of them.

    -Right-click and go to 7-zip then select extract to \*\

    -open the DaCapo folder and click the .exe

    If you don’t want to have folderception just drag and drop the main one to wherever.

  15. am I the only one who couldn’t bring myself to watch the H scenes? the whole time I thought :this is wrong. I had to ask my sister to skip them.

    1. Well since the H-scenes aren’t really important for the story it doesn’t really matter if you skipped them or not, but if you really don’t like Adult content then you could play all aged. A really good one would be Clannad no H-Scenes but i feel that it is one of the best visual novels out there

    2. Well, if you’re watching your sister play a game like this, THAT is probably why you thought “this is wrong”

      1. no , i played manyy visual novels which had adoult content but i fetl that h-scenes don’t fit in this one. kinnda ruins the mood. as for my sister, she is a fujoshi, i have seen her play worse stuff so i don’ care

  16. I’ve checked your method, but Deamon tools isn’t required since there’s no isofile anymore.

    Just go ahead like this:

    1. Put all parts in the same ordner.
    2. Extract the files of the first .rar archive into this ordner as you explained
    3. Start the game by clicking dacapo.exe

  17. Can someone help me?
    when I start game, game screen appear but after 5-7 seconds it goes black and game won’t start!!!
    P.s: Sr for my bad English

  18. Hello all i’m a VN noob and Da Capo is the first one i’m gonna play coz i know the anime and someone recommended it 🙂

  19. Nemu’s route was the last main route i played and i was disappointed in it and sakura’s route as well. But the other routes are better although Maki’s route is pretty simple without too much depth =_= but the Miharu route is really good so dont give up on the game yet >.<

  20. Just finished all the routes, and was very happy with it. The real tear jerker was Miharu’s route *sniffle*. Ive played quite a few visual novels and this is one of the few that actually got some tears going. Now its time to play the Kotori fan disc ^^

  21. Hi, I just finished the Nemu route. People are saying great things about this game, but to be honest, whether it’s just this one route or not, I’m not a fan of it. Yeah, it gets you a little emotional, but it mindfucked me like no tomorrow. I just don’t get the plot to that route. Maybe I’m misunderstanding it, but anyone want to explain it to me?

  22. I can’t seem to download from the link.. they always say i got the wrong IP T.T
    any solutions? went to the forum but still no good

  23. Thanks for this game! Its the first time I am plying a visual novel game since they dont import them to my country, thank you very much!

    I have a question: How do I save the progress of my game? In the menu in the Load screen there are save slots and quicksave slots, while I play the game I click the quicksave button but then when I click “load” on the first quicksave it doesnt load from where I was :S Also how can I do normal save?

  24. Can any1 help me pls. I am new to this VN thing and I can’t open the VN.
    I have downloaded all 4 parts and extract using winrar, then I can’t open the VN because there are:
    I don’t know what to do after this. Could any1 help me pls thx.

  25. can any1 help me pls. I am new to this whole VN thing and I don’t have a clue on how to start the game.
    I have downloaded all 4 part and extract it using winrar, then after opening the folder it have
    and I don’t know how to open the VN. Pls any1 help me.

  26. So, this is my first time downloading one of these, is there anything I need to do after downloading all 4 parts?

    1. After downloading those parts, keep them in a single folder and extract the first part using WinRAR or something similar. Then, mount the resulting .iso file using Daemon Tools or something similar. It should be like you inserted the CD now, and you just have to install and start it.

  27. ok I know this is probly my own fault but every time I click on the download it just resets the page if someone has had this problem and fixed it I like to know

  28. i found out the links are not dead the site wont let you download tomany files at once after you dl like 2 then start dl again

    1. I also noticed that. If you wait for the first two to finish, then they will work. It appears that it won’t let more than two download at once

  29. I must not be paying enough attention to what I do with these sorts of games.

    I’ve never played these sorts of games until like, yesterday. I remember loving the Shuffle! anime so when I found the download on this site I had to have it. Ended up going the Kaede route without ever meaning to.

    In this game I did the Mako route without realizing thats what I was doing.

  30. Hi everyone!

    Can someone help me? I am having problem finding the missing cg of moe on 3/5 and its scenario. I am also missing the 3/7 scenario and sakura’s last scenario w/o the date. Very much appreciated 🙂

    1. I’ll refer you to the walkthrough on gamefaqs:


      The missing Moe scenarios you’re referring to can be found under the BAD end section (3/5).

      Not sure about which 3/7 scenario you’re missing.

      For the last Sakura scenario, you should clear the NEMU section first, then clear SAKURA’s ending. On the title screen, you’ll see a new D.C. button that you can click for the final SAKURA scene.

  31. Sorry to post again but I can’t edit old posts. Just finished all the routes ( including Miharu and Misaki ) and it was a great experience overall. Was sad at some of the routes (moe,miharu,nemu,sakura) But I totally loved the other routes ( Kotori , Mako , Misaki ).
    God I really hope da capo 2 is as good as this game.

    1. sorry to interupt but im a noob in VN and you sounded like you have some experiense about this page is all the games in english?

  32. Just finished the nemu route , no I did not cry. Yes I felt like shit and almost cried. This game makes me realise how terrible the anime actually is compared to the visual novel.

  33. hmmm , just played the sakura route and I recommend everyone to start with this route seeing as it explains the most about the story and it will make future routes more relaxing.
    I won’t spoil anyhing specific about the sakura ending but I wasn’t very happy with it.

  34. how many desitions have this game?, i download shuffle and is good but the game have only 12 or 13 desitions, IF YOU CAN READ THIS PART, RECOMIENDAME UNO BUENO QUE TENGA MUCHAS FORMAS DE CAMBIAR LA HISTOIA

    1. Busca juegos de la empresa KEY; Ellos saben modificar bien una historia. De esa empresa he jugado a:
      Clannad / Kannon y hace poco han sacado Rewrite.

  35. im having a problem where i can activate the game, the intro sequence views, the title menu works but when i get into the game i keep getting help box’s pop up with undecipherable text but there are sections in square brackets which are in english that say rogo_circus, mangagamer, WARNING, 15_m, hai_25_n and s01a. the same thing will continue to pop up but with different segments of english.
    im guessing that its trying to say that segments of code are missing.
    i do realise that its undecipherable because my system locale is not changed to japanese but it is irrelevant because i still cannot read japanese.

    ive also noticed the background art within the game is just black but the icons and character dialogue box still work, im guessing because the code may be missing

    audio is fine , intro movie fine, title menu fine
    im operating a windows 7
    can anyone help?
    im been watching the anime and now i want to play the game
    help will be appreciated

  36. Thank you very much for such a great game
    I’ve been trying so hard to find VN Da Capo I for such a long time until my friend told me about this site.

    Da Capo Series is truly my favorite VN of all time
    Can’t wait for Da Capo III to release and translated into English

    Thank you !

  37. Please help im having problem with the game.
    every time I save the game and close the program.
    when i open it again there are no saves to be load.

  38. I am not requesting a game exactly but rather an update. There is another version of the game. Would you mind posting that?

  39. hi ! I’m having a problem with my saves when I save the game at some point then close the game, later when I open up the game there’s absolutely no game saves. anyone can help me out ? please

  40. I’m having a problem extracting the files. I have only extracted the 1st part then when I tried to extract the file from the 2nd part of download it says the file already exists and asks if i should replace it. It also happens when i try to extract the files at the 3rd and 4th file. What should i do? Pls help me. Thanks!

    1. Ow, man… Part 1 is the only one you need to extract, you just need to be sure you have all parts in the same folder, and then when you extract the part 1, all will combine to form a paste. Run the game without installing.

  41. In my opinion, the best ending is the end of Sakura … I liked the Nemu, but after seeing the suffering Sakura, I really began to love Sakura …

  42. What I have to do to download this game is
    1. Put all 4 files in a same folder
    2.”Extract here” part 1 of DaCapo
    And it should work right?

  43. Your site is seriously great!
    Thanks so much for the downloads.
    I have only read through Kanon, Clannad and Da Capo yet, but out of all the Routes, I thought Miharu’s was the best.
    Incredibly touching story in my opinion.

  44. Huh, the game ended rather abruptly. I thought it would continue onto the next semester, so I was just casually talking to every girl, not locking myself into any path, and then it just ends. I ended up with no one, but at least my bro was there to make me feel better… I need to use a guide, haha.

    1. Ok, this time I followed a guide to get Sakura’s ending, since it seems like she was the canon love interest. Thankfully this time the game didn’t end abruptly at all, and I liked how it ended. After the school year ends, you kind of assume that is near the end of the game, but Sakura’s path lasts for at least 6-7 more hours, which was surprising, but it was fun. The story was pretty interesting, and it reminded me a LOT of Kanon, except that instead of the focus being on Memories, it was focused on Dreams.

      I was originally going to check out the other endings, but Sakura’s ending was so good, and really it resolved everything, that if I did any other ending, it would feel like nothing is really being solved – though it was lampshaded at the end of Sakura’s ending.

      Though, this being my first game of this type, I wonder how the HELL you could figure out what to say or where to go to set off the required events for the different girls and their respective endings. It’s like if you want to do anything in this game, you need a guide to figure out how to do it, sheesh.

      So yeah, fun game, cool story.

      1. Once you play more of these games, you will become used to it and pick “right” choices leading to character you want with no problem.
        Almost every character in every game has her “theme” or location – for example she likes basketball – if you want to pursue that character you just have to visit basketball field often or talk with her about it.

      2. Sakura isn’t actually the “canon” ending. Nemu is. She’s the grandmother in Da Capo 2. She’s the “girl chosen” in the manga and the anime.

  45. Nicely done… lol. Well this is in English right? If so thank you very much if not still thank you very much…
    Well I was wondering if any1 here knows where to get D.C. Winter Season(english would be good) well if it exists thought xD.

    And please don’t spoil, don’t discourage players from finding a good paths ^^

  46. Thank you for mirroring in Filesonic fileserve is kinda going bad for me here :))) more power admin i love all of your VN!

  47. Finally managed to download and works fine after extracting the files.

    Thanks for this and fantastic site overall… But a small request, please don’t use fileserve or megaupload if you can help it… They apparently hate us here in HK. >_<

  48. the best route i took was definitely Mizukoshi Mako and Amakase Miharu’s route!! i had mixed emotions in Mizukoshi Moe’s route; a little bit of anger,frustration,happiness and sadness. .almost gave me a happy heartburn!! (^^)

  49. Also is this a english sub download or is their a patch I have to download for english subs so can you post the link for a english patch please.

    1. Well go with Shia. Then Download or buy Kotori Love Exp for lots and lots of Kotori experiences lol.

  50. well i read through the comments while i am downloading it and everyone seems to be saying there are three files two download but i only see two parts

    is that supposed to be that way

  51. why i can’t get mako route?
    i have already folllow the walktrhough from gamefaq.com but the route for mako doesn’t appear but the one that appear is the moe’s route
    can anybody help me???

    1. Which walktrough are you following more exactly?

      Cause the walktrough i followed didn’t gave me any problems whatsoever…

    2. Well from what I know just go with Mako/Moe’s voice all the time and wake up early that’s basically what is it I guess 😀 and answer really sweet, I mean if possible say yes to what she wants or yeah make a good expression… The more encounters you get the higher the rate of capture

  52. Story: C

    Da Capo has several characters but their story lines are not very interesting for the most part. The game boasts good voice acting though, even if sakura’s voice is annoying you grow to like it. The art is good imo but the ero scenes aren’t very sexy save for a few characters.

  53. i need help … i open the crack file and a picture of a cat that says dacapo on it i click it but the game dont come up

  54. uhm, this is the first time i play an eroge and i want to know if your choices affect the ending or something else important in the game.
    thank’s for the responds

    1. For now I’m uploading only games in English, with English patch or at least partial English patch. I’m considering adding japanese games as well, but only when i get every translated game first.

  55. You’re running wrong .exe – this archive contains both orginal and cracked one. If you run cracked one you won’t get asked for configrmation code.
