I like Kai best, delinquents are one of my favorite types (especially if they're tsundere or 'sheep in wolf's clothing'). ^_^
Btw, you mentioned you'd started making an energetic boy (my other favorite type) but he got scrapped because you couldn't really get into his character, and you said that you like angsty guys. Have you tried making him a secret angst? Possibly a terrible secret or a tragic past which still haunts him?
Don't worry, this game will happen; I'm not giving up on this. There's just too much work put into it already. I may go on breaks but I won't stop.
The other cheerful character was scrapped because I couldn't make him work in the scheme of Kohaku's story. I think I might put him in but it might be the last (or first!) person you suspect. I may make him a character you can obtain on the side, or an unlockable after you complete all other routes. It's all in speculation.
I really want to make this game almost completely with my own hands. I'm very controlling about this project so I'm thinking of doing the art myself (I'm okay, and if I can't manage, I will go and get a real artist to do it). GUI could be made by someone else and the coding will be practice for me.

Really? Kai's is blue? I'd thought it'd be orange. Well, electric blue would probably suit him, imo (might look quite pleasant, actually). Also, I would like to second the motion that Sachiko's hair be dark purple, and if you're still trying to choose between brown and green for Kohaku, I vote bright green.Have you decided on eye color yet?
Oh, hey! Since I'm talking about character designs anyway,
I think Kai would look reeeeeally good with a bandage on one of his cheeks.Also, Kohaku's design is very cute. ^v^
Hope you don't mind getting all these suggestions, sorry if they're annoying.
I didn't want to go with stereotypical colors. I mean, the angry guy's always red or orange, the nice one is blonde (OK, I guess Eiji does fit that stereotype) and so on and so on. I wanted his hair color to suit both his brother and him, so I went with blue. I think Kai will have a more electric blue and Toya will have a darker, more muted shade of blue. But just saying right now, their character designs are not finalized. Kai's hair will definitely be different, as well as Eiji's and Izumi's. I think I'm fine with the way Toya and Sanosuke look, but I may change it later.
I think Sachiko would look good with purple hair ^^ As for Kohaku, I'll have to play around with the colors for her hair first. I'm still on the fence about her.
Yes, a bandage would look nice on him. I'm thinking of putting them on his fingers or fists
No thoughts on eye color yet so go ahead and throw those at me if you want ^^
You're not annoying
It helps when people make suggestions. It might open some wellspring of inspiration in me ^^
I finished the basic character designs of the rivals. I'll put them up when I figure out how to get the scanner working :p
I need to practice drawing older people now. Like, middle aged people, thirties, upper twenties, grandmas etc. If anyone has tips on that, I'd love to hear them. (Every older person I draw looks like a pretty teenager -_-)
