Toro and the Shooting Star Guide
It just, wasn't, enough. Put on your helmets and walk through the halls of a feature that goes above and beyond the call of insanity.


Prologue
The story opens with you arriving by truck to Yumesa Town. Landlady Mitsuko greets you outside and introduces you to your new residence at Yumemi-sou. She points out your apartment, and you dutifully walk into the building. Inside, head towards the staircase until you’re stopped by the ruckus Goro and Kaojai are causing in the middle of the hall. After they both shuffle off, officer Arata says hi and leaves. After that, head upstairs and "meet" another one of your fellow tenants, Yuu — she’s preoccupied at the moment so she runs right by you. By now you’d think the fun would be over, but ohhh no! Go to the end of the hall and open the door to your apartment.

You’re immediately greeted by the flushing of a toilet (and FYI you can repeat it by entering and exiting the room for endless hilarity). Someone’s on the can, but why wait for them? Go over and open the second door.

Holy shingles, it’s Toro! And he’s not much for first impressions! But, like it or not, he’s your new roommate. After he introduces himself, he’ll ask you some questions such as what you’d prefer to be called, whether you work or are a student and some follow-up questions to those. Once satisfied, Toro gets down to work putting his things away.

A few hours later it’s nighttime and everything is put away. Now that the place is a little more livable, it’s time to chill. Toro points out how nice the evening sky looks tonight and invites you over to the window.

He asks you if you know about how if you see a shooting star and chant a wish 3 times, it will come true. He then asks what you would wish for; you must type in your answer and tell Toro what exactly it is: a person, a thing, an animal, a car?

Right after he mentions it, a shooting star zooms across the sky! Toro chants both of your wishes and hopes they both come true. But the celebrating is interrupted when the sky starts glowing brightly. The dang thing is heading for the town!

Doko Demo Info

Ayano Tsuji‘s music is soothing, cute and occasionally groovy; unsurprising for a girl who shares the same qualities. And when combined with the delicate twang of her ukulele she makes those qualities uniquely hers. A folk fan in high school and throughout college, Tsuji debuted on the indie scene in 1998 and some fateful meetings with the right people led to her commercial debut and steadily growing popularity.

With her cover of "When You Wish Upon A Star", Tsuji moves into the game world, and while it may not be her most memorable effort, it’s the right song for the right game. Tsuji’s next album, "COVER GIRL", will be released on May 19. – Official page
