So our kid hero wakes up in a hospital, and they tell him that he was in a car crash. They say it was a shard of glass that stabbed him in the chest, and you and I observing are saying "oh, bullshit!" in response.
Anyway, there are all these damned lines everywhere that this kid is seeing. He starts poking and picking at the things, and, lo and behold, things fall apart. Everything is perforated, all of a sudden. But, even with the perfectly split wreckage of his hospital bed lying there on the floor, nobody believes the poor kid. It all goes to show: whether you're speeding without a license in your Mom's Porsche or getting kickin' superpowers after a near-death experience, parents just don't understand.
So nobody comes to see the poor little guy, so he says "fuckit" and runs away to an appropriately dramatic grassy field. And oh shi--
It's some chick. Our first chick thus far! She yells at the little bastard for sitting around in the grass in people's way because she coulda kicked him if she'd wanted to. She introduces herself as Aoko Aozaki (let me just note here that I'm going to be Westernizing the name order so as to avoid confusion for everybody), and our little buddy tells her he's Shiki Tohno. Aoko, in her benevolence, decides to sit down and have a chat with the kid. Shiki, for his part, is so grateful that he decides to shower her with exposition. Shiki's from the old-money Tohno family! Dad sure was mean! He has a little sister named Akiha (first appearance of a popular moe fetish here). Oh, how they used to play! What a life, what a life!
Aoko and Shiki make this a regular thing, because being the hero of an h-game Shiki's other inborn superpower is an inexplicable way with the ladies. Let this be a lesson to you, would-be game deisgners: shamelessly fullfill your audience's wishes or your audience will not buy your damn game!
Shiki decides to be a showoff one day, and he chops up a tree. Aoko is so taken aback that she has to slap the damn kid (why there's no picture for this i have no idea) and give him the speech about great power and great responsibility. A couple days later she's stolen some materials and made him a pair of glasses that hide the lines. Aoko tells Shiki he's got the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, which is serious shit, so she Ben Parkers him some more and tells him he'll be just fine. There is a probably-tearful goodbye, and our prologue ends.
More to come!
