Absolutely amazing game! I just wish that there was an option to skip the intro since I have to go through it dozens of times because my computer crashes a lot..
Asagao Academy: Normal Boots Club
A downloadable visual novel for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
Hana, the protagonist of Asagao Academy, transfers to the school after a series of negative experiences. She desperately wants to join the Normal Boots Club, though her motives may be less than pure. Shy, awkward, quiet, and a wee bit insecure, she has a big heart and genuinely cares about people.
Mai is Hana's loud, boisterous, and spunky roommate. She's obsessed with the Normal Boots Club, Jared in particular, and is a bit blunt. Her excessive energy makes her an ace on the school's volleyball team.
Jon is one of the founding members of the Normal Boots Club and the head of the Drama Club. He adores bizarre retro games, and loves his pet bird, Jacques, more than life itself. Jon is charismatic, energetic, and animated. Everything seems to be going well for him - that is, until he loses something dear...
PBG, one of the founding members of the Normal Boots Club, is an easy-going, caring, and optimistic guy. He doesn't bother with school, instead focusing on important things like soccer and pinball. Despite his friendliness, he's giving Hana strange looks, and then starts skipping class...
Jared is a part-time model. Naturally, he is the most attractive person in school and knows it, often coming off as vain, fickle, and shallow. Despite this, Jared truly cares for his friends, and the confidence he projects may not be as solid as it appears.
Satch is an assistant librarian at the school library working on a virtual reality machine. Satch is intellectual, empathetic, mature and well-read. He always thinks of others' feelings before his own, but keeps his problems to himself - which might backfire when Normal Boots is targeted...
Shane is a foreign exchange student from England. Quiet, straightforward, and blunt, he's a natural with trivia competitions, but instead chooses to challenge himself with Nario Cart. Despite how much the club needs Hana's skills, he is steadfastly against her joining.
Jirard is an avid collector of Itty Bitty Kitty figurines. Passionate, ambitious, and a bit of a perfectionist, he is the resident speed-runner. Perhaps as a result of his need to complete, he does well both academically and socially, being one of the most caring people on campus.
Paul, Nick, and Josh are blood bound under Continue?'s banner. They are inseparable and typically found wreaking general havoc by reenacting the '80s and '90s arcade beat-em-ups they love so dearly. Paul is running for student council president, but when a strong rival appears, will the pressure of competition be too much?

Just curious.... has anyone gotten a good end?
I ran into a problem while playing. Every time I boot up the game my latest save files were deleted, and I had to play Day Five and after that all over again. This problem keeps happening to me. If anyone knows how to fix this problem please help me.
Thanks for the great time me and my sister had playing this. We both watch YouTube religiously, so this was hilarious. Good job.
Have I mentioned how much I love the drums in the theme song? Because I booted up the latest version of this game, and I love the drums in that opening sequence.
Is it possible to date creeps mcpasta in this game?
I have a friend who wants to play Asagao Academy, but she has a chromebook and is unable to play the game. Can someone please tell me how to run Asagao Academy on a chromebook?
I feel the same way! I've been watching this game since its Kickstarter and I'm sad that I can't play it because I only have a Chromebook.
My only suggestion is to not buy a chromebook until the chrome OS is capable of doing anything, but I guess it's too late for y'all. I have a chromebook, too, but I'm lucky enough to also have a hand-me-down laptop from my sister as well. Chromebooks can run games like this if you essentially break them into making them run another OS, but I do believe that risks bricking the thing entirely.
this is such a great game. i can't believe it is free. as someone who knew nothing about the normal boots club before playing, the game absolutely does not require prior knowledge to be enjoyed.
I just downloaded the game today...also I love it! But everytime I go to save.. it goes to this gray screen and it has like 5 options (Rollback,Ignore,Open Traceback,Copy to Clipboard,and just Quit) I don't want to lose my data cause I have got pretty far in the game.. think it means no save slots available...but I haven't even saved once...
I would like to see MatPat and/or the game grumps as cameo characters as MatPat is a good friend of PBG and JonTron used to be a part of the game grumps.
That would be awesome. But this is a normal boots game. A sneaky reference like Jon saying "God, Arin would know what to do" would be pretty funny/
Wow, I love this game! I saw the Normal Boots guys playing it on thier channels and didn't want to watch them play it untill I did. 3 weeks later and I have all the endings completed! Now I am off to watch all the let's plays lol
What f**k!?!? It's not saving my data! I've read the support thing, and nothing has worked!!
Almost every time I open the game it seems like all my progress is erased, but my saves are still there, so I find myself skipping through Chapter 1 and recompleating the routes i have done. If anyone can help with this that would be great. I would like to complete the game, but if this keeps happening I won't be able to.
UUUGGGHH! My computer wont let me download this game!
I need to pay attention to more YouTubers >< But I'm loving this game! The humor is amazing, especially the fashionable triple-chin shots of ProJared lol
I've been Let's Playing it for my channel for a while now >.> I'm having WAY too much fun making thumbnails for it XD For anyone interested, here's episode 1:
Thank you SO much for making this game :) I didn't even know I needed it in my life, but I'm glad it's here!
Well, the storyline is cliche but adorable, the characters have a personality to adore and even the teacher is surprisingly interesting.
The problem that -only- I see is with the main character. No personality whatsoever, flaws that only exist for plot convenience, annoyingly cliche mentality and overwhelming sensitivity; she cries/tears up at least once every two darn days. Maybe tone down the Mary-Sue-Ness? Even if it's just a joke, it's still pretty annoying.
That all said, the game is surprisingly good. I'm pleasantly surprised; this was unexpected. Great job, honestly.
I NEED HELPPP!!! So I have a windows computer and have downloaded the game several times. Yet I get the same error message every single time that the files are missing or that the folder is empty. I have tried different unzip decompressed programs both online and downloaded and I still get the same message. Please if someone that has expirenced this that was able to fix this could help me. That would be greatly appriciated, I really want to play.
omg please please help i have no idea what i'm doing, i'm trying my hardest to understand what to do, but I have no idea how to actually install/download this game, please help i want to play it so bad
Hi! I'll do my best to explain!
> Click the green "Download Now" button
> Click "No thanks, just take me to the downloads"
> There's a list of versions of the game. If you're on a computer running Windows, click the "Download" button next to "AsagaoAcademy1.0c-win.zip." If you're on a Mac, click the button next to "AsagaoAcademy1.0c-mac.zip." If you're using Linux, select the one next to "AsagaoAcademy1.0c-linux.tar.bz."
> The game downloads as a zipped folder that you'll need to unzip. If you're using a Windows computer, I recommend the program WinRAR. It's free. Right click on the zipped folder and "Extract Files". Set the destination to anywhere EXCEPT your Program Files folder and extract. If you're on a Mac, I think you can double click the zipped folder to unzip it? I have a PC, so I'm not sure... I wont be able to help you unzip the game with Linux as I've never used it.
> Open the unzipped folder and inside is a blue pixel flower icon called Asagao Academy. Double click that to launch the game!
I'm having a hard time downloading the game, when I finally got it downloaded it gave me a traceback error. I haven't been able to correct the problem on my end. Is there anything else i could try other than downloading again, I already tried that. And the dll edit doesn't work because of the encrypted package, and i can't create the missing files because I don't know what was in them in the first place, help much appreciated! Thank you! ~Admin of account(V.S.)
well dang, i was halfway through the jon route when all my progress on other routes were completely erased! all that was left was the save files where i did the routes. is there a way i can recover my progress? or do i have to do almost ALL THE ROUTES ALL OVER AGAIN!
