Chunsoft Blog: 999 Japanese Character Ranking – #1

By Chunsoft . December 23, 2010 . 9:09am

So, finally we would like to present the most popular character.



1st place is of course Clover.

She looks pretty happy to see Junpei.



Most discussions about Clover concern what she says and how she behaves, as well as whether or not she’s wearing underwear.



Some concept art of Clover’s various expressions. I guess they’re trendy?



These are some of the initial designs for Clover’s character.

The ones on top are the oldest, and the ones on the bottom are closest to how she eventually ended up.

Thank you very much for your participation.


<- Back to number 2


< Spencer’s note: Tomorrow, we’ll have a special Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors blog entitled "999 Development the Untold Story" that shows an early concept for the Nintendo DS game. Please look forward to it! >

    “whether or not she’s wearing underwear.”<– where this idea came from???
    I got all the endings except one, and I have no idea what might cause that idea.

    • Er… I think it was something about walking up stairs.

      • SanityCrisis

        Santa: [Concerning some stairs leading to a catwalk] Oh man, Junpei, Look at those stairs… look at them carefully!
        That gap! That height! That angle! It’s perfect!
        Bring Clover here, right now! Tell her she needs to walk up and down those stairs!

        Something along those lines. There’s also some CG pictures where her skirt’s so high up it’s questionable.

  • Yay, Clover! Gimme a C! Gimme a L! Gimme a O! Gimme a V! Gimme a E! Gimme a R! What does that spell? CLOVER! :D

    (What the hell are we doing… -_-) haha

  • So its finally here, well, clover is not bad, and i still have some hope for the japanese (june was after lotus)

    Cant wait to see how the US 999’s branch end up like x_X

    • Ok so it may be less flesh, but there is the whole underage girls thing and that is just so much worse.

      • SanityCrisis

        She’s 18 if you do the math (she’s mentioned being 9 in a flashback that took place 9 years ago), so technically she’s not underage, but still skirting it (no pun intended) with the schoolgirl thing which is still…. yeah.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    The kogal look was stronger in the earlier artwork.

  • Pichi

    Like the concept art. I think any one could have fit her. Glad she won! Can’t wait for the US results.

  • Phoenix_Apollo

    Strange, I find that I like Clover the least of the characters. Even with all that happens.

  • Whoa…I didn’t know she has those boots…

  • PrinceHeir

    i am definitely looking forward to this :D

    still waiting for a 3DS to buy this along with layton, ace attorney and the castlevania DS games.

  • dusk

    Love her freckles! Also, first picture is awfully sexy and cute.
