Differences in the US Version
In the original Japanses version the characters ages was 16. To release the game in the US the ages were changed to 18 and the older girls ages was set to 20. Because of this an extra bit of text was added in the beginning of the game to explain that the school, Kotobuki Preparatory School, was a special post high school school, not a college.
