Story

Narcissu 2

Narcissu 2 is set about six or seven years before the events of the original Narcissu, while Setsumi was still just a regular outpatient living at home near the hospital. We meet Himeko, a former 7th floor helper at the hospital. Cheerful and full of energy, no one expected that she would one day be a patient in the same ward that she had spent so much time volunteering at. One summer day, while Setsumi was going to the hospital for an examination, Setsumi meets Himeko, and a long summer begins…

Narcissu

Death waits for us all, there’s no one who can avoid that. Nevertheless, life goes on and the world keeps moving.

But what of those who are thrust into the position of being the ones waiting for death, unable to participate in the moving, living world?

The 7th floor, the hospice. In that ward, Yuu and Setsumi meet. One, a college student only recently thrust into the life of a long-term hospital patient. The other, so used to the detached life of a hospital patient that she rarely shows emotion, or even interest in life.

With nowhere else that they could go, nothing else to do but watch television in the lounge, the only thing that moves are the days. There, their journey begins…

    I like finding out about the seiyuus. Could make out Yuko Goto’s voice but wow Mamiko Noto! Puffy cute voice of Ana Coppola!

    I really, really like the character voices. They truly give some life to them. I’ve read that the creator suggests unvoiced more, and I will have to disagree. The voices help you sympathize more with the character, and brings out their realistic side in a tangible way.

    To be honest, if I was going to read something without voices, I would just pick up a book instead. As amazing as this work is, it’s seriously depressing without any voicework and just a physical text is preferable in that case. And why would the creator go out of his way to obtain the voice clips in the first place?

    Unvoiced would be better if the voice actors weren’t all extremely good. They are.

    There’s a typo in one of the icons – it’s supposed to be Setsumi not Setumi.

    Setumi is a perfectly valid romanization of Setsumi, the system used is the one Japanese natives tend to use more.

    The icons are the ‘official’ ones from Stage-nana. I didn’t particularly find it worth the effort to photoshop in ‘fixes’.
