“Life is like a staircase. You just gotta keep climbing. Otherwise, if you start to overthink it, you’ll have trouble taking the next step.”
YOU and ME and HER: a love story is the kind of game that stays with you forever. Forget everything you’ve heard and dive into this incredible story of a love strong enough to rewrite everything you thought you knew about visual novels.
Shinichi wants nothing more than to lead a quiet life. Though he was once close friends with Miyuki, the most popular girl in school, his desire for normalcy now keeps them from becoming anything more than classmates.
That normalcy changes forever the day the class weirdo, Aoi, tries to kiss him on the school rooftop. Miyuki appears just in time to stop her, but afterward, Shinichi feels the urge to bring some light to the strange, friendless girl’s eyes.
He enlists Miyuki’s aid, and thus, a trio is born. The days pass, and little by little, Aoi learns what it means to be friends. But at the same time, long-dormant feelings awaken in Miyuki’s heart. As the distance between her and Shinichi shrinks, the bonds the three have built begin to fray.
Miyuki or Aoi－when the time comes, which will Shinichi choose?
Shinichi is a perfectly average guy with no hobbies or interests of note. He has developed a significant complex regarding his utter normalcy. The school’s most popular girl, Sone Miyuki, is his childhood friend.
Miyuki is the school’s undisputed idol. Nobody knows that she and Shinichi were close once upon a time. An excellent actress and softball player, Miyuki is currently preparing to star in a softball-themed school play.
A strange girl with no friends to speak of, Aoi is most often seen on the roof with her phone, searching for a signal that will “connect her to God.” She has no concept of “personal space.”
Yuutarou is Shinichi’s best friend, and the president of the oddly-named “Boys and Dreams Club,” of which Shinichi is a (reluctant) member. His overabundance of energy keeps the girls at arms’ length.
Miyuki’s timid, soft-spoken junior from Theatre Club.
No matter what kind of experience you hope to get out of playing an eroge, YOU and ME and HER: a love story is guaranteed to be everything you want, and more than you bargained for.
