Flower, Sun, and Rain: Search For Your True Self

By Ishaan . July 3, 2009 . 1:56pm

Flower, Sun, and Rain begins with a montage of in game cuts mixed with live actors performing scenes from the game set to the song “Anata no Tame ni.” The intro is very avant garde-esque, and it sets the “feel” for the entire game, which is similar in nature.
