I remember my first girlfriend. She was odd; curly brown locks dangling just low enough to graze her chin, a mousy giggle just high enough to get on my nerves. Red-framed glasses that never quite meshed with any of the ill fitting, poorly coordinated clothing she wore, disguising a surprisingly womanly figure. Father issues, an entitlement complex, and a lack of ability to see the big picture.
But there are those who are truly scarred. Enter Hisao, the reluctant protagonist of Katawa Shoujo. The title translates literally to “Disability Girls,” which might sound vaguely sexual.
