Snow Sakura is a Visual Novel by Digital Objet, company behind Kana: Little Sister telling the story of young Yuuji Tajibana, who is forced to live with his uncle and Saki, his very wild cousin, after his parents left to work in Hawaii. Trying to come to terms with his new live in this snowy and cold world, he comes across a very illustrious group of girls and his new "best friend" Sumiyoshi and starts to find both happiness and love in this new place. This game is, a bit rare for modern eroge, a simple Slice of Life comedy, no deep conspiracies and no unnecessary Angst. It has been released in English by G-Collections in 2007 with the erotic scenes being uncensored.


Tropes:

  Yuuji: I am not at liberty to be free to deny the fact that such a thing may or may not be true.

 Sumiyoshi: (abruptly) "Totally uncensored nude big-breasted blonde girls rubbing sun oil on each other."

Yuuji: "You know, sometimes I wonder why I even hang out with you."

  • Love Dodecahedron
  • Love Triangle: Between Misaki, Yuuji, and Kozue in Kozue's route.
    • A short one between Misaki, Yuuji, and Saki in Misaki's route.
  • Mahjong: Rei loves Mahjong. Having some knowledge on the subject (or just a guide) is actually required to get her ending.
  • Luck-Based Mission: Rei's Mahjong quiz is one if you don't have knowledge of Mahjong or aren't using a guide.
  • Meganekko: Rei.
  • Megaton Punch: Saki dispenses these liberally, especially to Sumiyoshi.
  • New Transfer Student: Yuuji.
  • No Accounting for Taste: The protagonist's parents are a pretty uncouth sort, and they don't seem to be paying so much attention to each other in Hawaii as to the sexy locals. But hey, maybe that's their kink.
  • Noodle Incident: When everyone gets drunk, Yuuji has to fend them off. When Yuuji gets drunk . . . well, no one wants to tell him what he did.
  • The Ojou: Kozue Hiyama.
  • Operation Blank:

 Kozue: "The name of the plan is "Force the Half-Hearted Lovers to go on a Date"."

Rei: "That's not a very creative name."

Kozue: "I don't care if you like the name or not."

  • Ordinary High School Student: Yuuji, our main character.
  • Parental Abandonment: Played for laughs.
  • Pettanko: A good way to get your ass kicked by Saki is to tease her about her bust size; though oddly, she's no smaller than some of the other female characters. In fact, Misato and Kozue seem smaller, but aren't insecure about it.
    • Perhaps this is why Saki gets teased about it while Misato and Kozue don't?
  • Porn Stash: Yuuji has one, but Sumiyoshi treats his like a hobby. Saki teases them about it (and secretly keeps a collection of her own).
  • Rape as Drama: The first ero-scene between Yuuji and Kozue comes uncomfortably close to this.
    • Then the next H-scene takes the same event and turns it into Black Comedy Rape when she goes to show him a video and instead accidentally puts in the one of them doing it.
  • Running Gag: As long as Yuuji lives with Saki and Takeaki he's never going to wake up peacefully, unless the Rule of Funny says it's time to turn the tables. And then he'll go back to waking up with elbow drops and practical jokes.
    • Another running gag is Yuuji's dad's ability to predict exactly how his son reacts to his videos and making preemptive arrangements.
  • Seinen: Yes, despite it being a light-hearted comedy, each ending holds such scenes.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbians: Kozue appears to be this at first, but that is partly due to her inferiority complex to her "Love Interest".
  • Shout-Out: Ditzy teacher Misato-sensei lecturing in the wrong classroom, along with others.
  • Ship Tease: In Kozue's route, even Saki has to admit Sumiyoshi said something impressive. While blushing furiously.
  • Slice of Life
  • Smoking Is Cool: Rei. At least, that's how it comes across to Yuuji. She herself begs to differ.
  • Snow Means Love: Seeing as the game plays in the snowy winter of Hokkaido, this comes logically.
  • Stalking Is Love: Kozue goes to some pretty extreme measures to photograph or film Misaki (and Yuuji if he starts dating her).
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: This game is virtually to Digital Objet what Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is to Gainax.
  • True Companions: The game's a bit unusual - instead of the love interests being, for the most part, strangers to one another, all the girls (and Sumiyoshi) are already pretty close-knit friends.
  • Tsundere: Saki Tachibana.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Saki has this one after being filed as the Titless Twintail Monster and mocked relentlessly for it.
  • Visual Novel
  • Women Drivers: Misato-sensei is not the best of drivers. Likely a side effect of being The Ditz.
    • This exchange, late in Misaki's route:

 Rei: (after stepping out of Misato-sensei's car) "We should have died three times there..."

Kozue: "No, four times..."

Yuuji: "I had no idea cars could go sideways like that..."

  • Wrestler in All of Us: Saki uses quite an impressive amount of wrestling moves on our poor main character - the German Suplex along with her favourite, the Elbow Drop.
    • It apparently runs in the family, as Saki's dad Takeaki says he fell in love with her mom "the very moment she locked me in her triangle chokehold."
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Misaki Souya.
