Kara no Shoujo

Kara no Shoujo

The year is 1956; a series of bizarre murders rocks the city of Tokyo. Tokisaka Reiji, an ex-cop turned private eye, joins the investigation at the behest of his friend Uozumi Kyozo, a detective in the MPD. At the same time, he takes on a missing persons’ case at a private all-girls high school, as well as a mysterious request from a girl named Toko to find her true self. As Reiji frantically struggles to crack the case, he learns that the murders bear an uncanny resemblance to a case in which his own fiancé was murdered six years ago. But try as he might, the body count just keeps rising…

  1. cant recommend it.
    its overdone (the sister of your mother is the friend of the doctor who treated your dog which was born in the same place that X, so X and you are… expect more than chain like that one in the game).
    endings dont really bring that much of an answer, and you need the sequel to really answer the most important one “where is…”
    after all these hours… such a letdown.
    and then all this suckers saying its the biggest thing ever. dont become the mass. theyre like ants that cant think for themselves, and so they just repeat what they hear.
    kara no shoujo is one of the best VNs, and there they go, repeating the lie over an over. come on, have an opinion of your own once in a while. its like… yes, exactly

    1. Telling people to think like you “It’s not a good vn” is contradictory to what you’re saying lmao. If I think it’s a good VN, then it is to me. If it’s not a hood vn, it’s not. I don’t think you have the right to tell people what to think lmaoo

  2. Thank your for the game, it is really one of the best i’d ever play so far.
    Now i have some issues – even if the game is in progress, and i already have reached a bad end – and have many saves – well, when coming back to the title screen – the gallery menu is still locked – i cannot see the pictures i’d unlock so far.
    So i’d go on sagaoz so as to get the savedata file – and get 100% CG – in case one would need to get the good ending to unlock the gallery menu. But then again it doesnt work.
    does anyone have the same issue ? not being able to open the “gallery cg” ?

    Thanks for any help !

  3. Hello there, I’m in a pickle, and I hope someone will be able to help.

    During day… 8 I believe (the one, when you question the girl from Kendo Club, about disappeared students), after school, I chose the Academy as the place to visit. This triggered a scene with Yukari, and during it, an error message appeared with some garbled mess. Lots of question marks (I assume it’s due to lack of Japanese symbols) and somewhere mention about the font. The game didn’t crash, but refused to move on as well. I close the game. When I started writing this post, I wanted to get back to it, and copy/paste the message entirely… And then I noticed that the game doesn’t see my saves anymore (even though there is a savedata folder with files in it).

    Did someone had this problem? If so, is there a workaround for it?

    Appreciate any help I can get.

  4. hi, is there a way to skip the violence scene..? how many violence scene? is it the description of violence is important for the game through? i feel scared -_-, i think i will just put book to screen pc and enter, enter and enter to the end of violence scene

    1. Then you should not play this game, Kara no Shoujo is full blood and gore.

      I suggest you play Deardrops or Kira kira.

  5. please help, the links to the site of downloadani won’t open or load. I have checked the firewall and other sites and it still won’t load, not even on a different browser. Note: I even checked proxy.


  6. Thank you ver much for the game. Just commenting that when I finished the game and came by your page, I noticed the voice patch XDDD. Wonderful anyway, I will play it again with voice.

  7. I just finished the game and went to find a spoiler of Kara No Shoujo 2…..God freaking damn it! the guy who deserves a happy ending more than anyone in the damn story doesnt get it!

    Kara No Shoujo is definitely one of the best VN’s out there, that’s for sure….. but still…. *cries*

  8. Depressing ending. I appreciate the effort put into making an original ending, but a classic happy ending (beat the bad guy, get the girl) would have been better in my opinion.
    I’m also sad that there are no Stella, Ayumu or Yukari endings.
    None lees this is a great game and i can recommended it to anyone who does not mind a little gore.

  9. Since this is the english version which according to the vndb doesn’t have animations in the story and in the eroscenes, does anyone know of a way of using the japanese version and place english text in it for the complete experience?

  10. Ended the game…where’s the damn gore?! just some unknown grotesque creature!! indeed the story is gore, but there’s almost no cg of it, don’t get me wrong, 95/100 to the game, loved the plot, but is not that grotesque as I expected.

    Thanks a lot ^^

  11. I’d give 95 for this game, if only they don’t emphasize the H-scenes -_- (12 is just too many…)

  12. This is so great, there is also an anime(hentai) of this, but not so great. SPOILER But why are young students fucking a 30-year old man? Grrr ^^

  13. Sup guys… Great job on the site by the way… Just wondering if you have links for Kara no Shoujo’s soundtrack… It’s just that whenever I like what I hear, I MUST put it in my iPod… Kara no Shoujo’s (and also Katawa Shoujo’s) soundtracks are really great… So uhm, you got links to the soundtrack?

  14. Last time I (re)uploaded School Days to mediafire, links lasted whooping 7 hours before all got taken down and account suspended. No MF until they change their policy or I find workaround.

    1. I dont know wth u mean by that but. Is kinda boring have to wait 2-3Hours to download just 200megas… 2 files at time, u see?…

    1. the sequel is being developed by Innocence Grey now. but don’t know when will it be finished and if it will be picked up by MangaGamer.

  15. So was the spoiler and text patch just put into the main game d/l? I started to play the game a little before I heard about either of the patches and now I’m not sure if I should stop playing till I can patch the game.

  16. i just dont understand how the fuck this game becomes a 2 episode only ova, and to make it worse its a hentai(focused on hscenes)

    1. I agree with that. I skip most of it. The anime doesn’t give us a clear ending either (but the good thing, Toko is still alive)

  17. damn 1 of my favorite eroges theres gonna be kara no shoujo 2 released soon hope tlwiki will translate it

  18. Great Story….this is my second creepy eroge games I had played the first one is Divi-Dead and I hope there are more!!

  19. admin this game is japanese game using english patch, from what I hear manga gamers release this game to.
    nah question is if kara no shoujo from manga gamers exist, will you posting in here?
    sorry if my talk to rude
    thank you…

      1. Oh, right. Sorry. Anyway, what’s the minimal number of scenes [approximately] do you have to go through to reach true end?

  20. Can anyone provide me an answer? This is my first eroge game.

    can anyone tell me when will the gallery be unlocked?
    I tried finishing it with the 1st bad ending but the gallery was not unlocked yet.

    Do I have to go for a good ending to have it unlocked?

  21. I downloaded everything and it plays. But I noticed that even though I downloaded “voice patch” it has no voice thus far in the game. I just started though, maybe it starts later, I’m not sure.
    IS it suppose to be like that? Did I do something wrong?

        1. i re-installed the voice patch and the spoiler patch and the first time i got a blue screen when i renamed the patch. now it’s back to no voice and just music. sorry :/

          1. You can’t just rename patches randomly. The game engine only loads file “patch.xp3” then “patch2.xp3” and so on…
            All patches applied have to follow that naming convenction, otherwise game won’t load them.

  22. do the game version you have uploaded and the patches also fix the bug that skips some unread text even if “skip only the already read text” option is activated?

  23. Hi, I cannot use the gallery after got ending 1 and a couple of bad ending,is that normal or i did something wrong installing the game?

  24. Hi! Thanks so much for the patches. I won’t download the game (I will buy that), but I still wanted to thank you for the voice and text patch. 🙂

  25. One more thing, I suspect that once I started downloading, I only have a limited amount of time to finish it. When I download small files, this problem did not occur. The problem only surfaces when it comes to downloading big files like 200MB+. After a certain amount of time (I usually reached about 50%+ by that time), the download just sort of stop/crash? Any ideas guys?

    1. I had experienced that too, when I tried to use my download accelerator. The download run normally at first, and then it just happened.

      Now, I always chose “save file” for 200+ Mb files

  26. I tried downloading via Filesonic as a Free User but halfway through (at about 50%+), there was some sort of error and the download just stopped. No matter how many times I tried again, not just for this game title but also other game titles, the problem would not go away. Must I upgrade to premium account?

    1. maybe u just have connection error or maybe ur isp limit ur download? and in filesonic and fileserve when ur download is stop at the middle u can’t resume it.
      sure the premium account is great if u want to download all the file in this website at once 😀

  27. Just wondering two things: 1- is this the english mangagamer release?(for some reason, I can’t swap regions on my computer; I think it’s because I don’t have the font) 2- if it isn’t the mangagamer translated version, could you upload it?

    1. I can answer this for him.
      Because megaupload have ANNOYING download limits. And not everyone can use it. And it’s as bad as rapidshare. And many more. Seriously, it suck 🙂

      1. You don’t have to say it like that. It sucks, it’s true… but, with your hated megaupload as an example, you can download the second piece without having to wait 10 mins the first time and an hour the second. To sousou, I can say that those servers you said, the links would fall daily, having admin banned or not on these servers. It breaks the rules on those servers twice… I won’t directly say the rules broken. But fileserve, and filesonic allow these files, if you take the responsability of them.

        1. You can use the Happy Hour in megaupload.
          During that time you can put any DL links and it will give you a premium link for that download.

          I always use happy hours for my download in Megaupload, no pop-ups and wait time. 😀

  28. Can someone explain how to open these files? I’ve downloaded all three, and there isn’t a file that will open correctly.

    1. That’s link to producent’s website where you can purchase the game if you wish so. This is just additional feature, since there are many people who liked a game they downloaded here and they can support it’s creator this way – i will continue posting free downloads as well so nothing really changes.

  29. Goddammit, i just checked the walkthrough section and i read that this vn is sad as fuck and that there are no happy endings.

    Oh well, gonna read it anyways :p

  30. WOOT ! Finally a new VN to read !

    Thanks admin, think i already downloaded 50% of all the VN’s you got here.

  31. I see that you don’t have Galaxy Angel and it’s sequel The Moonlit Lovers, which was recently translated. Any chance of putting that on this site?

  32. I’m just a bit confused, since I’ve been looking around for an english torrent of this game… So I’m just dubblechecking before “wasting” time downloading..

    Is this in english or is it 100% japanese?

  33. hey admin, did this link interchangeable between filesonic and fileserve???Please give quick response…..i want to play it’s soon….
    thank’s for your reply….

  34. I’m not really sure where to ask this, so I will just ask here. Do you have any plans to upload “Yukkuri Panic Escalation”? I can’t find a download for it to save my life.


    But what is the proper way to play Visual Novels? I try going through all the bad endings first, and the good endings, and then the true ending. But when I do that, I end up skipping a LOT of dialogue (because I have already been through them) that should intensify the story. I don’t want to do it the other way around because doing the bad endings last will end a sour taste in my mouth. How do other people enjoy this?

    1. you can try all of the bad and normal ending first. Then if you go to True Route in the end, it will be the most epic route you ever had. Believe me.

      Normally, in “normal” VN (inogure’s VN is abnormal), you can seek for the true end for one of the girls you wanted too. But since in Kara no Shoujo you can’t choose which girl you wanted to end with, you need to see all of the bad end first 🙂

  36. i extract all 3 parts and the patch then put it all in the game directory (voice patch as well) and all i get is a blue screen with some text and an error message please help

    1. never mind i found the issue the file Karanoshojo.exp3 was corrupt i will attempt to re download

  37. Hi Admin, Hello from France. I want to thank for your incredible database of VN (eroge or not) Because it’s veeeeeery diffcult to find VN in my country (but easy for manga, OVA, anim and a lot of japanese products)

    If some guy are in the same situation (french or not) you can answer to my message

    PS: Sorry for my bad english if I’ve making some mistakes

  38. I’m having problems with running this game.

    I downloaded all three parts of this game. I can load this game fine when I double click the .exe on winrar. But when I extract it to my desktop or another folder and double click it there, a blue screen full of japanese text shows up and a folder named savedata pops up out of nowhere.

    KaraNoShoujo (winRar) came with three files: karanoshoujo.xp3, karanoshoujo.exe, and a folder called plugin.

    I also don’t know how to install the voice patch and the fixed non spoiler patch. Please HELP

    My computer is in Japanese locale.

    1. Ok I kinda fixed it. I was looking at the part 3 winRar file, when all the necessary files in “plugin” was in part 1. I extracted everything to my desktop. KnS plays fine now. Except the voice patch doesn’t work. Am I supposed to be putting all three .xp3 files and “savedata” in the “plugin” folder?

      1. New problem. I downloaded all the patches. I got the voice patch (patch.xp3), and the fixed spoiler patches(patch2.xp3 & patch 3.xp3)and put them inside the “plugin” folder. I double click, but then the blue screen w/Japanese text shoes up, and another “savedata” folder comes out. Just what the heck am I doing wrong?

        1. OK this is getting too complicated so can anyone just tell me step by step instructions on how to install this game? I gave up because I took the patches and the savedata out of the plugin folder but the blue screen of Japan still persists. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??

          1. You should put patch files in main game directory ( next to karanoshoujo.exe , not in “plugins” directory).

  39. hi admin, there is a game called ‘Toriko Hime – Hakudaku Mamire no Reijō’ by guilty. do you have it?

  40. This game is really depressing, but I’m glad I read it anyways. Thank you for the upload admin.

  41. I’m having problems with the game.
    Every time I try to load the game, it just loops me back to
    the “Mangagamer page” in the beginning when you first launch it.
    How do you fix this?

    1. huh, nvm. it seems to load me to the scene before it? idk but ignore this post 😉 thx for the great work always admin.

  42. hey admin,

    I really want to thank you for this awesome website!

    Just wanted to also let you know that this site is the definitive source of my visual novels. At least for me, it is bookmarked and I check it every day too.

    PS – will Tomoyo After ever be translated into English?

    1. Well, as vndb says, baka tsuki dropped the translation project and Doki Fansubs picked it up. It seems it is being translated, but who knows how long it will take? It may be months, maybe even years.

  43. Thanks for this Admin, I’ve been waiting for it to come out for a while.

    Just wondering, but does anyone know why it’s so small? Total size even with the voice patch is little over 1 gig.
    Yet when I was looking into downloading the japanese version before hearing it was going to be translated, the original virtual game disc was over 4 gigs. Just how much unnessary data did they prune when they were porting it?

    Doesn’t make much of a difference to playing it I suppose, but 3 gigs just vanishing makes me worry…..

    1. They didn’t just add translation, they ported game to different engine; maybe original game was 4 gig, but it used (mostly uncompressed) data like graphics and music. However, MG ported game to their own engine, which uses highly compressed game data, and they recompress old data in progress; often it can result in smaller size. Most likely nothing is lost.

      1. I see. I thought it might be something along those lines, though such a huge difference in size made me wonder if there was something else to it. Like maybe they had left something out, like they did with the voices.
        Hard to believe that a difference in engine could result in it being four times the size.

        Thanks for clearing that up for me.

  44. Does anybody else has problems with the skip feature? Both problems seem to be also in the trial version.
    1. The skip button is not available in the beginning (first few sentences) of a scene, even if already read. But even worse
    2. The skip feature skips through a whole scene (i.e. until a new day) even if you’ve read only the beginning. If you get an additional part for a scene this will be skipped, too. If you stop skipping yourself you will notice, that the skip feature is (correctly) not available for that part.

    The config is set to skip only read text.

  45. I just receive an email from MG saying that an incomplete version was uploaded by accident and that now it is re uploaded again on the main site. Is this one the “complete” version? (i actually am no sure what they meant by “incomplete”.)

    Anyway keep up the great work !

    1. It’s the first one, but patch fixes problem that was fixed in second, “complete” version.
      Pirates got it one day earlier than paying customers, yarrr!

  46. Does someone know the name of the main menu piano song…
    i just cant stop listening to it…
    answer plz…=)

  47. Is anyone else having trouble downloading Part 3? I get to 99% and then my download gets interrupted. I have tried it on three different browsers and both file hosts. Same result for everything. Any ideas?

        1. Mmmmm i have no clue then…but you seem to be the first person whit this problem…why dont you try to download it from another computer…if yours doesnt want you to get it…=)

  48. I’m experiencing some issues with the game, even with the patch.
    Going to the Load screen simply prompts an error in japanese to pop up, disallowing me to load any data. Second problem is that the Save screen takes ages to load. Running it as an admin doesn’t help, and I’ve never experienced much problems with other visual novels.

  49. Is it just me or is the data corrupt? i downloadet it no the 2. time (both mirrors) and getting the same error ! KaraNoShoujo.part3.rar: CRC-Fehler in KaraNoShoujo\karanoshojo.xp3. The Data is corrupt

  50. Mangagamer already uploaded de right version without bugs.
    They say this version is imcomplete, is that right?

    1. No, it’s good to go. Just apply patch posted below download links.
      (Yes, we had game updated 1 day before paying customers did. Shame on you, Mangagamer)

    1. Bug problem and voice patch have already been uploaded…
      download the game, bug fix patch and voice patch (if you want voices)

  51. It’s really a shame that Mangagamer until now not even got the bugs fixed and here we get also the voices.


  52. As I said before, you’re truely my Ero-ero-ero-Hero!

    Eroge must conquer the World!

    I’ll reign the World with the help of “admin”!

    Ha, ha, ha!

    Kneel down, earthlings!

  53. if im not mistaken is this the version that manga gamer screwed up on?

    like the big spoiler about who the real killer is?

    anyway just to be safe dont read the diary entries that the main character writes down… as it will tell u at the very start who the real killer is (very start as in when u meet a suspicious man/woman i think)… major spoiler! spread the word just to be safe..

    but if someone can confirm this version is cool then i guess its all good 🙂

    1. I really dont understand the diference between both vercions
      i guess the best option is to wait for the (good) one i’m shure admin will upload it soon

      1. not much difference between the two vesrions other than the screwed up version will spoil who the real killer is while the version with a patch wont:)

          1. i havent played the full game and i didnt even complete the trial version 😛 but i think its more than that, but reading forums and all, by the sound of it… its like a detective game, as in getting vital pieces of evidence for each case etc. but im quite sure this vn is much deeper than that 🙂 but you shouldt really listen to me as i think i dont know anything at all, just rambling 🙂 just to be safe you can google a reveiw and hopefully it will satisfy your standards ^_^

  54. Its scarey how quickly the DRM can be worked around last night i found this on a torrent but it had DRM so i had a look on /jp/ and within a few hours they had a working DRM free .exe file to replace the DRM one with.

  55. As always, you have my gratitude Admin! Fast and reliable at any time.

    To the people that wait for a voice patch: While there is a chance that some people will attempt to hack the voices from the japanese version into this release, please keep in mind that they changed to another engine since english didn’t work out with the old one. I am not to sure if the new engine will even allow them to import the voices of the japanese version.

    Again, thanks for this one – Been looking forward to it for a few months now.

    1. Demonbane also ran on a new engine, but they still imported the voices from the japanese ps2 game.
      It’s just a matter of time until someone gets the voice patch out =]
      I was wondering if we’ll get the non-beta version of kara no shoujo( without the spoiler) ?

  56. Well I say its the beta version(Huge spoilers given due to a bug and other errors in text )and the beta didnt have the DRM thus the lighting fast release of the game here it does not need a patch to work .

  57. Thank you, admin! I’ve been waiting for so long! What a shame that I don’t have a Premium Account, well anyways thanks a bunch!

    You’re my Ero-ero-ero-Hero. 😉

  58. Say…this is the MangaGamer game right???
    because i just read they released the beta version mistakenly…
    so this is it…?

  59. admin…any information about a voice patch…??
    Hope you’ll upload it as soon as posible (if there is any)
    Keep the good work!! Thanks

  60. Any hope of a voice patch surfacing? I know you were right on top of the Koihime Musou patch, so I have high hopes! Keep up the excellent work!
