The point I wanted to make is that there is only one Magical Boutique - from my point of view there is no need for a sequel, unless you want to do remake the game (but that's not a sequel), or make a sequel that was more or less identical to the original, with just minor tweaks.
I've often wondered why there is a Narcissu 2 - all the explanations about deepeing the story and whatnot aren't good enough, simply because that game didn't need a sequel. And you know, even though the game isn't translated yet, I don't see how in the end, after I play it and let a few months pass, I won't look at it and say it is not a whole lot more than a "Resurrection Of Setsumi".
I'd just point this out - since I think that most of the sequels aren't really needed - and even those which are really justified can often have a much more appropriate name than "The Orginal II". And especially at this free fan-made level, there is simply no need to do this.
It's like (time for metaphores!) you see a Rolls-Royce hovering majestically through the streets - and you are inspired to make a car - and so you make a junkyard buggy. But instead of using the buggy to go offroad, you go to the same street as you saw the Rolls, and you want the buggy to give you the same feeling as the Rolls did when you watched it. But, have you ever considered that the Rolls looks at the hills and sometimes wishes to go offoad? But it can't, because it has nobility to preserve and etiquette to observe. Much like commercial makers who are often simply forced to make a sequel - so why would you throw away your buggy's go-anywhere ability? I know it's not as comfortable as the Rolls, but it's a different world, really. So sequels... well, they are okay, but if you decide to do one, you have to know you're not limiting yourself more than you should be.
