April 25, 2017 Fruitbat Factory is excited to announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Chuusotsu - 1st Graduation: Time After Time

Chuusotsu - 1st Graduation: Time After Time is a new all-ages visual novel by Studio Beast, famous for the cult classic "J.Q.V Jinrui Kyuusai-bu ~With Love from Isotope~." It was released in Japan in August 2016 as a HD wide-screen release.

Chuusotsu is a fun, colorful story of three girls brought by their individual circumstances to live under the same roof and being forced to tackle existential questions to win their place in society. 

Fruitbat Factory is bringing Chuusotsu to fans all over the world in dual language (English and Japanese text, characters fully voiced in Japanese).

The Kickstarter campaign’s goal is set at $20.000, with two stretch goals revealed, both adding an all-new event CG to the game. 

MSRP for Chuusotsu - 1st Graduation will be $19.99, and $9.99 for the soundtrack, Sound Disc.

The chuusotsu are not in possession of any Seals, and are considered to be failures at life. As such, their Authorized Power level is only 5 - young Arue's future is already looking mighty bleak.
