Hiroya Tachibana doesn't need anyone's help. At least that's what he told himself on the night his father threw him out. Day by day he goes to school, keeping his head down to draw as little attention as possible. But between a vicious rivalry with the private school across town, a friend who can't go one day without getting in trouble, and a strange rumor surrounding a mysterious transfer student, Hiroya finds it impossible not to get distracted, while his own life crumbles around him. Will he make his own way and become a champion of his school? Will he delve into the lives of his classmates? Forge new relationships? Or will he spend his senior year sleeping under the old bridge that divides the town? It's up to you to decide.
Sugawara Chronicle is an anime inspired choice-based VN which splits into two distinct paths early in the game. One route will have you team up with a group of club leaders on a mission to save you school the villainous private academy and their student body president. The other route will take you into the daily life of a girl who can't help but get involved in some mischief wherever she goes. The two stories, while played independently, are highly connected, and the game is designed to be played many times over, each time showing you a different perspective of the world and the characters in it. Only by playing both routes will you have the opportunity to discover the secrets hidden within the everyday people around you.
