a2 ~a due~ is a visual novel by VARIABLE X , NSEY Games, and Memento Mori Productions. It’s about Chinese American Sona Song and Chinese Yin Le Hao, who doesn’t understand English, unfortunately. Language barriers and problems of understanding are bound to occur. However, there is one thing that connects them both; namely Music.“It’s been years since rocker girl Sona Song last talked to her father, a famous classical music conductor. So she’s shocked, and a bit annoyed, when he leaves his orchestra to her after he dies. Though Sona just wants to slack off, she’s soon visited by Yin Le Hao, her father’s musical protégé from China. Hao doesn’t speak any English, but he’s determined to whip the orchestra into shape no matter what.”
a2 ~a due~ is a mix between drama, comedy, and otome elements with a rather uncommon protagonist. The game takes you on an emotional journey full of funny and sad moments. There are three different endings, it’s rated 13+, and you can download it for free. After you completed the game, you can turn on a translation mode in order to switch all the Chinese dialog from Hao into English (or German, that is). Furthermore, there are a lot of extras, many CGs, a bonus chapter, and a wonderful theme song.
