Here are notes that I feel should be addressed before
watching. It might help clear up
any questions you may have.

These chapters are larger in file
size than the first project. Chapter one is particularly
large, but you'll find out why when you watch it. Chapter
nine is the largest one by far. I try to keep the files at a reasonable size,
but using the pictures from the game take up a lot of space.
The music does too, even after reducing the quality.
Originally, there was no indicator to show
when to click for the next line of text, and there are some
moments where lines are timed. However, I've now added an
indicator to all of the chapters. Still, just take your time when
reading each chapter.
One of the key things you'll
notice right away is that my brother likes to mix in Japanese
words with his English. The words he uses are simple and
common ones, especially if you watch a lot of anime like we do.
But for those of you who don't know any Japanese, we've
addressed the issue in the Flash. Read the introduction
notes in chapter 1 for a more detailed explanation.
A particular Japanese word that I
need to point out is "Iie". This means "No" in English.
It's simple enough, but when you read it in the Flash, it looks
really similar to the word "Lie". So just make sure that
you don't get the two confused while reading. Just look at
Play the game first! I
shouldn't have to say this, but I'm going to just in case.
You can read these chapters without having played Kana: Little
Sister, but you'll spoil the story. It's really important
to know the original story and who Taka and Kana are.
Otherwise you won't get as much as you could out of this fanfic.
So, if you haven't played the game, go
it now! You won't be sorry that you did. =)
This is really important.
already read "My
Sister, My Strength", you'll have to set your mind to ignore
what happened in that story so you can focus on this timeline
instead. Go through Ending 1 of the game to refresh your
memory if you have to. Just remember that Darkling's
timeline and J-Pop's timeline are completely
separate. I have to stress this point because it was a
little hard for me to do. But once the story gets started
it'll be easier to follow.
Download versions of the chapters
are now available. A single batch .zip file has also been

If I make changes to the chapters, I may
feel the need to update the notes on this page, so just
be aware of the date it was last updated.
