We’re Giving Away 10 Narcissu Anthology Season Passes!

Just comment and retweet to enter and potentially win a free Narcissu Anthology Season Pass!

Narcissu

Hey everyone, we have some super exciting news today. As you could guess from the title, we are having a Narcissu Anthology season pass giveaway! For those unaware, we of Beneath the Tangles (well, at least Japes and I) are big fans of Narcissu for its respectful inclusion of Christian faith in its stories that present characters who are forced to face death in the form of terminal illnesses. Although Narcissu 1 and Side 2nd were available for free already, the rest of the stories were left untranslated. Last year, Sekai Project announced the Narcissu 10th Anniversary Project, localizing the rest of the games as well as a brand new one. The translation process is actually still ongoing, and today, Narcissu: Zero is released to the public. As such, we are announcing a giveaway of 10—yes, that’s right 10—Steam keys which we have kindly received from Aginyan of Sekai Project. These season pass keys will give you access to read the 3 currently released games as well as the 4th one after it is officially released.

So how does it work? Just retweet our tweet about this giveaway and leave a comment on this page about why you want to win a copy of the Narcissu series including your Twitter handle so we can confirm you have retweeted (content of the comments will not affect your chances of winning unless we deem the comment offensive or off topic). Those who do not answer the question are not eligible, so be sure to leave a comment! The giveaway will end next Friday, August 19th, at 11:59 PM PDT, and the winners will be announced later that weekend. So if you’re at all interested in a free Narcissu season pass, let us know why in the comments below and retweet! We’ll see the lucky winners at the 7th floor (okay maybe that’s not a good idea).

    Hi there! I’d love to win a Narcissu Anthology Season Pass, because, well, I’ve never read through any VNs, and I think now would be the perfect chance to start! You guys always have such good recommendations and I would love to see the connections to Christian faith you guys claim is so visible 😀

    The only reason I wanted the Anthology Season Pass is that I liked narcissu (been playing the first and the second and) I’m in love with how the stories are well written.

    I’d like to win because in all honesty; I can’t really say I enjoy visual novels if the only one I’ve played is Nekopara… @_koizu

    Narcissu is probably the saddest VN I’ve ever played. It almost brought me to tears. I want to take my feels to the next level. well, if I win this giveaway. @RaegaTan

    I still remember the first one, the only VN that I can say “someone dies at the end” without spoiling anything.

    A Narcissu VN with a collection of heartwarming stories. I don’t think more needs to be said!

    I’d love to play Narcissu because it seems like a different kind of VN, with a very sensitive and powerful premise. I really want to experience it for myself!

    Hi, I didn’t know Narcissu until I came across this blog. I’ve never read any Visual Novels and I think this will be a good one to start with. I’ve only been around on this blog for 1 month, but I can say that this is definitely one of my favourites, if not the best blog, I’ve been watching. Keep up the good work!!

    Hello. I would love to win this Narcissu Anthology Season Pass because I really enjoyed the first game. Narcissu was my first visual novel I ever played in Steam and I really like the story. I enjoyed the music in this game. 🙂

    I’d love to play this game because I’m a huge VN fan and I find drama/tragedy visual novels way more interesting than action, comedy or romance ones!

    I’d like to win because I’ve only played a handful on Steam (those being free versions, and rather short ones at that). None of which had any sort of Christian themes that I noticed, so this one should be both intriguing and having a good message. My Twitter handle is @Roboyed btw :).

    Hello! I have yet to play these games, but after planetarian, I’ve really enjoyed visual novels, especially ones where God can be seen in them. Currently, I’ve been in a spiritual rut, feeling like I haven’t really been focused on my relationship with God. I don’t mean to say that I’ll turn away from him; He is the only Lord I will keep in my life, but it helps me to focus back on him when I have a refreshed perspective on life, and it seems like this series will give me that perspective.

    I’ve never actually seen any anime adaptations from Key or read their visual novels, so getting Narcissu would be a great opportunity to expand my Christian diet! The Christian parallels between the Gospel and the piece of media have peaked my interest as well!

    Oh, my first VN ! I like all Kataoka Tomo’s stories, and Narcissu is one of those. Narcissu gave me a impression that never fade in my mind.
    I love Narcissu, and this is seemed to be the reason that I’d love to win a Anthology Season Pass.

    I played the first two games way back when they were just downloads on a website. Would be nice to play the rest of the series now that it’s coming over to steam.

    Narcissu was the first VN I ever read so I want to read the others in the series! It’s very well written, and I like how it portrays Catholicism (for a Japanese work). In fact, it talks about confession (in Himeko’s Epilogue) more than my pastor does!

  • @enstoeringen

    I’d like to win a copy of Narcissu: 10th Anniversary Edition because the original was a powerful, sometimes relatable and overall surprisingly enjoyable VN.

    I played the first two on Steam when they were free, and I really loved them. I would really love the chance to enjoy the rest of the series (and the updated graphics and translation (?) of the first two) 😀

    Hi everyone! I would love to win a Narcissu Anthology Season Pass mainly because I am curious about it, and would like to read through this VNs. And honestly, I’d like to see the Christian faith that is said to be in this series (which I hope to find given by biblical faith).

    I’ve actually never heard of the Narcissu series, but I’m really curious about it now that you mention about it’s inclusion of the Christian faith. Would love to play through the anthology as I enjoy these kinds of games. @joshthetechie

    I would like to receive a season pass because I greatly enjoyed Narcissu 1st and 2nd, but as a 17 year old still living with his parents, I don’t have the money to get a season pass myself (though I did manage to get the game for $3 for Himeko’s Epilogue using the community market). I also tend to meet people who describe their own lives as misfortunate (I guess I’m a misfortune magnet, or something), so I find myself greatly interested in the Narcissu series, a series about misfortunate people who are able to find peace of mind.
