    1. CHARACTERS
    
    [Hinasaki Miku]
    Her name literally translated into "Dark Red", Miku is the heroine of
    this game. Born with a bloodline strong in spirituality, Miku can see
    things most people are unable to. Impossible to share this with the
    people around her, she became isolated and alone, with the only person
    she can confide in being her older brother, who share the same
    bloodline, and thus have the same abilities. When her brother
    disappeared, Miku has no other choice but to follow in his footsteps,
    and venture into the mysterious Himuro Mansion where her brother
    disappeared in.
    
    [Hinasaki Mafuyu]
    His name literally translated into "Real Winter", Mafuyu is Miku's
    older brother, the character being controlled in the Prologue of the
    game. With parents both deceased, Mafuyu is Miku's only family, and the
    only person Miku could confide in. Searching for the missing Takamine
    Jyunsei who was a benefactor of the Hinasaki family, Mafuyu traced
    Takamine's footsteps and arrived at the mysterious Himuro Mansion,
    where as a result Mafuyu himself also disappeared in. Carried with him
    was the camera his mother left him, an heirloom strong with spritual
    force, able to seal ghosts and spirits in the hands of someone also
    strong in spiritual strength.
    
    [Hinasaki Miyuki]
    Her name literally translated into "Deep Snow", Miyuki was Miku and
    Mafuyu's mother. With a bloodline strong in spiritual strength, she had
    always felt the pain of being isolated from the people around her, and
    furthermore felt the pain of passing this down to her children. Weak
    physically and fell ill in her final years, Miyuki died several years
    ago of a certain incident. The camera Mafuyu carried was originally
    hers.
    
    [Takamine Jyunsei]
    A mystery writer by trade, Takamine was a benefactor of Hinasaki
    Mafuyu. Even though a best seller writer, his writing juices are

    rituals once performed in the old Himuro Mansion, Takamine became
    interested and made an investigative trip into the mansion, where he
    disappeared.
    
    [Hirasaka Tomoe]
    Takamine's assistant, another person on the investigative trip into the
    Himuro Mansion, where she also disappeared. Strong in the spiritual
    senses, Hirasaka had always had a bad feeling about the trip.
    
    [Ogata Kouji]
    Takamine's editor, being also writing for his own horror magazine,
    joined Takamine on his investigative trip into the mysterious Himuro
    Mansion, where he disappeared as well. Ogata's report to his editing
    department was the last contact these three people had with the world.
    
    [Kirie]
    Her name literally translated into "Fog Painting", Kirie is a spirit of
    a young girl dressed in a white kimono. She appears to be the witch
    during the ancient ceremonies performed in the Himuro Mansion. She
    appears in front of Miku, but again vanishes to somewhere.
    
    [Munakata Ryozou]
    Cultural scholar, because of his interest in the ancient ceremonied
    once performed there, moved into the Himuro Mansion to further
    investigate the events. Cursed by the witch of the rope, and was
    killed.

     - She moves quite slowly, but she does teleport and reappear very
    close to you, and she recovers HP whenever she teleports
     - She causes earthquakes that shake your camera view sometimes, so
    it's not easy to keep her in your view circle. It would be best if you
    kept some 90 Type Film to use against her
     - She does move in a certain pattern, so if you get her pattern
    figured out, she is still not that difficult to defeat
    Once Kirie is defeated, another movie will start
