More Information About Project 575 Emerges

on July 19, 2013 5:12 PM

Just on the heels of Project 575‘s big reveal we got a few more tidbits of info about the two games Uta Kumi 575 and Uta Yomi 575.

We first learn why both titles contain the number 575. Interestingly enough, it relates to the 5-7-5 syllable pattern found in the traditional Haiku and Tanka styles of Japanese poetry, which does tie in with Uta Kumi 575 and Uta Yomi 575 being rhythm/song writing games. There’s also another piece to the puzzle that I’ll be getting to shortly.

We also find out about the two young ladies’ personalities and backstories. Azuki Masaoka is a bright, cheerful and straightforward girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and acts without thinking of the consequences. Maccha Kobayashi is an introverted and quiet girl whose hobby is making doujinshi (Japanese fan comics that are published professionally). By some freak accident, they suddenly can only speak and sing in the 5-7-5 pattern, and the rather strange songs they sing are being posted on a video site by two fellow high school students. The setting of the game is Kamakura, a city known for its historical monuments, temples, greenery and the nearby ocean.
