I won’t go into detail on how to use this app (no time ^^;;) but it is similar to my previous post here.
I caved and bought Harada Sanosuke’s app in November 2011. Unlike the free trial version, the intimacy level went up in just 2 days of using the app. Maxed intimacy within the next 2 days :D
But similarly, intimacy level drops quite quickly if you didn’t pay enough attention to him. It dropped to 3 petals in 2 days cos I was too busy with work. And the change in his tone was quite shocking ^^;; Not used to Sanosan being so cold (;_;)
Anyway, on the right is the special winter pack that you can purchase within the app itself. 170 Yen. 5 new voices, 1 costume, 1 background.
Update: It seems that a number of you are not sure how to download the winter add-on. So here’s a quick tutorial:
Left: Select the 3rd option from the menu. Right: Tap on the red button.
A pop up will appear and ask if you want to buy the item. After tapping Buy, you’ll be prompted to login to your iTunes account. After that if the window comes out like below, it means you’ve purchased it successfully.
When you go back to the screen, the red button will become green. Then go back to the front screen and tap on the 4th option.
Here you can choose which version Harada you want to display. Tap on the first button and you’ll bring up a window to choose the winter add-on. Slide the option to the second one then tap OK.
Next tap on the 2nd option to change the background. Similarly, it’ll bring up a window for you to choose the option. Slide it to the 2nd option and tap OK.
Since this is the first time you’re installing the new background and costume, the app will connect to the internet to download the data.
When you’re done, Sanosan will be dressed in the winter package. The background is dark because this screen was captured during the evening :) Hontoni ikemen desu ne… Sanosan!
There is a special birthday greeting too. To set your birthday, at Settings (4th option), tap on the last option. A window will pop up for you to enter your birthday. After sliding to the correct date, tap OK. On your birthday, Harada will wish you happy birthday :D
Christmas Day special voice! I’m not sure if I missed out on the Christmas eve voice, if any (;_;) Update:
official site corrected that the special voice is only on 25 December not 24 December.
Sanosan: The city seems to be bustling with activity. Is there some kind of a festival held today? Ah~ I see. Today is a day you spend with your loved one? Then I’ll spend the day with you. You’re ok with that, right?
Days to watch out for the special voices are: 25 December, 1 January, 2 March and 14 February.
I’m not sure if it is only in the winter pack or the normal app. Please share your clips if you have the other guys :D
Update! 7/7/2012 It’s Tanabata! For those who bought the Summer voice pack, don’t miss out the special voice message of your character!
Sanosan: Today is Tanabata huh… it’s said that Orihime and Hikoboshi can meet only once a year today… that’s such a lonely thing… … … (since) I’m able to hug you like this in my arms anytime, all the time.
Background of the festival (from wiki):
Orihime (織姫, Weaving Princess), daughter of the Tentei (天帝, Sky King, or the universe itself), wove beautiful clothes by the bank of the Amanogawa (天の川, Milky Way, lit. “heavenly river”). Her father loved the cloth that she wove and so she worked very hard every day to weave it. However, Orihime was sad that because of her hard work she could never meet and fall in love with anyone. Concerned about his daughter, Tentei arranged for her to meet Hikoboshi (彦星, Cow Herder Star) (also referred to as Kengyuu (牽牛)) who lived and worked on the other side of the Amanogawa. When the two met, they fell instantly in love with each other and married shortly thereafter. However, once married, Orihime no longer would weave cloth for Tentei and Hikoboshi allowed his cows to stray all over Heaven. In anger, Tentei separated the two lovers across the Amanogawa and forbade them to meet. Orihime became despondent at the loss of her husband and asked her father to let them meet again. Tentei was moved by his daughter’s tears and allowed the two to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month if she worked hard and finished her weaving. The first time they tried to meet, however, they found that they could not cross the river because there was no bridge. Orihime cried so much that a flock of magpies came and promised to make a bridge with their wings so that she could cross the river. It is said that if it rains on Tanabata, the magpies cannot come and the two lovers must wait until another year to meet.
