Houkago Cinderella 2
As the first buds of spring bloom, Kuzumi Arata finds himself starting anew in a town far from home. Plagued by regrets from his past student life, he wonders what he’s been doing with his youth. A part-time job may have kept him financially afloat, but it couldn’t fill the void of feeling left out while watching his peers excel in clubs and find love. Determined to turn over a new leaf, he sets his sights on a fresh start at his new school.
Luck seems to be on his side as he meets a cast of exciting characters, including friendly classmates, a beautiful and reserved one, a girl he met on the train, and a cheeky kouhai who keeps him on his toes. However, Kuzumi still struggles with figuring out how to make the most of his student life. That is, until he listens to Oze Hazuki, the kind daughter of his landlord, and decides to enjoy himself at his new school.
But as he settles into his new routine, Kuzumi can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. It isn’t until he examines his heart that he realizes his true desire: to have an idyllic student life, complete with a girlfriend by his side as they walk home from school together. With this new goal in mind, Kuzumi must find his way through the twists and turns of love and relationships as he tries to live the perfect student life.
Lastly, Houkago Cinderella 2 is currently available now for PC in Japan.
