Tokimeki Memorial 4 Game to Add Original Anime BD/DVD (Update 2)
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese game company Konami has announced at Tokyo Game Show on Thursday that its Tokimeki Memorial 4 Complete Set will ship on December 3 with an original animation called -Hajimari no Finder- (The First Finder) on Blu-ray Disc or DVD. The game is the latest addition to the 15-year-old Tokimeki Memorial romance simulation franchise.
Hajimari no Finder depicts the first day of school at Kirameki High and the day's ceremony, during which the viewers can see the heroines of the game before "meeting" them while playing the game. The anime takes the form of interview footage taken by video camera of each important student. The 30-minute anime is also available separately from the game's complete set.
In addition to the actual game and the original animation disc, the game's complete set will include a two-disc original soundtrack, a five-disc character single box, a Kirameki Watcher guide for new students, the Kirameki Private High School Schedule Book 2010 set, an illustrated clear file, and two special extras to be detailed later.
Update: More background and story information added.
Update 2: Corrected description of franchise's length. Thanks, omoikane.
