Role Play / Katawa Shoujo Gaiden

Go To

Katawa Shoujo Gaiden is the sequel to Bay 12 Katawa Shoujo Roleplay, headed by ElfCollaborator. Taking place twenty years after the last roleplay, the roleplay once again focuses on the students of Yamaku High, and their general day-to-day life.

OOC thread can be found here.

This roleplay has examples of:

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: The Bradley-Hanamichi siblings.
  • The Cutie: Anita Dens. She's been compared to Hinata, for starters. In fact, the Dens-Kikuchi siblings are both considered this In-Universe, as well as out of it.
    • Kiyumi.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Rin.
  • Disability as an Excuse for Jerkassery: Sayuri, although this is more of an Informed Attribute- her jerkishness has yet to be seen.
    • Jun is also implied to be this.
  • Advertisement:
  • Eye Scream: One of Kyle's eyes was taken out in a car accident, and the new student Kei also suffers from this.
  • Expy: Akemi is a subtle one of Ritsu. Yui is also one of Mio from the same series; to the point that she even shares the same last name.
    • There's enough similarities between Madoka and Madoka not for this to be intentional.
    • Homura seems to resemble Severa.
    • Haruko Toriumi (the Anime and Manga Club president) is a lampshaded expy of Taiga.
  • Genki Girl: Akemi and Madoka. Of the NPCs, Minori fits this best.
  • Happily Married: Harris and Risa, Yukari and Cado and Haruo and Aoi of the last roleplay.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Kyle. Rin fits this archetype closely, too.
  • Ill Girl: Yu and Homura. Most of the cast count as this, obviously, but Yu (bronchiectasis) and Homura (cystic fibrosis) have it worse than everyone else. Tatsuya is a male version, also suffering from the same disease as Homura.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yu, due to her condition making it understandably hard to live normally.
    • Tatsuya, although he fits more into the Tsundere archetype.
  • Meganekko: Tomomi. Her glasses allow her to see slightly better than what she would without, but she still qualifies as blind enough to go to Yamaku.
    • Mostly inverted. Tomomi is stated to be more sexy than cute and is hardly innocent, which means that she doesn't fit into the usual meganekko stereotype. Sumire fits this better.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Tomomi. Word of God confirms this was invoked.
  • No Social Skills: Yuuto, due to his muteness. Tod is a lesser version, due to his Brutal Honesty, while Homura and Tatsuya are both tsunderes. Kyo is the least pronounced one, due to his paranoia.
  • Only Sane Man: Tomomi is this to her adoptive parents.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Yui and Minori. Akemi is implied to be this.
  • Plucky Girl: Madoka. She takes some cues from her namesake and even has a catchphrase to go with her pluckiness.
  • Princely Young Man: Rin, in contrast to Tatsuya.
  • Punny Name: Four characters: Homura (Fushimi) and Akemi (Hanamichi) are roommates. Also, Madoka (Kikuchi) and (Rin) Kyouno are familiar with each other.
    • Also, Yui Akiyama, although Word of God confirms this to be a coincidence.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Anita and Madoka.
  • Sleepy Head: Haruko's first appearance is of her sleeping at her stall.
    • New student Maria also appears to be this.
  • Troubled, but Cute: Kyo and Kyle. Also, Tod. Tatsuya is too abrasive and menacing to qualify.
  • The Voiceless: Yuuto.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Misako has pink hair. Kyle literally has blue hair as well.
  • Younger Than They Look: Tomomi is mentioned to be this; apparently, her glasses and build make her look a couple years older.
    • Fuuka, currently a teacher at the academy, looks more like a college student than a teacher.

How well does it match the trope?
