Visual Novel / Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin

Go To

A visual novel developed by Light, written by Takashi Masada and illustrated by G Yuusuke. Also has a sequel, Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Bansenjin.

Yoshiya has been seeing continuous lucid dreams every night since he was small. Even though his mind doesn’t get to rest during his ‘sleep’, he still doesn’t experience heavy fatigue nor have ill health. Instead, he is brighter and more capable than other people his age. He thought of his special ability as one of his good points, and intended to live a relatively normal life. That was until he met Mizuki, who also had the same ability as him.

They were able to enter the dream world at will, but soon they found themselves caught in a world which could kill people and change history. It was a world from which one cannot escape. They were faced with the choice of either giving up and taking their own lives or to charge forward and try to break through this nightmare. However, they all felt like they were not caught up in this absurd situation by chance, but rather because it was their own wishes.

This game contains examples of:

  • Abstract Apotheosis: Becoming a Rosei means becoming a represntation of mankind.
  • Creator-Driven Successor: It is not part of Shinza Bansho Series, but it is by the same author and they share a lot of similarities and references. Amusingly, the Shinza series exist as games in this universe.
  • Dream Land: Dream World.
  • Dream Weaver: The Kantan abilities are based on the user's dreams.
  • Your Heart's Desire: Fourth level of Kantan, Kyudan, allows to use the Forced Cooperation, which is based on the target's own desires. For example, Seijuurou's Forced Cooperation has a condition that his opponent has some negative feelings against him because it means that he/she wants to know why did he became a villain. So he gives his opponent deadly disease, because it is his reason to become a villain. Their effects don't have to be negative, however. For example, Akira Manase's Forced Cooperation has an effect of healing anyone who wants to be healed.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real. Played with. If you die in Dream World, you also die in reality, but non-lethal wounds, no mather how severe, won't affect your real body.
