The PC eroge 1/2 summer - released in Japan on June 29, 2012 - is created by ALcot Honey Comb. The story starts during the summer vacation, after the game's protagonist Kaname is asked to help out at an inn in Tohoku. He had expected it to be a refreshing change from the sweltering heat in Tokyo, but when he arrives at the train station with his younger sister Kazuha, he is surprised to find that the town he once lived in had now become a large school town. Boarding a crowded bus and travelling out of the city to Kusanagi Inn, he is relieved to see the familiar country scenery once again. But why are the schoolgirls also getting off at the inn? The owner tells him that they are students from Jinza Gakuen in the city, but due to an incident they couldn't stay in their dormitory, so she let them stay at the inn for the summer. That's why he was needed there: to look after the girls. Furthermore, he had one more thing on his mind. It seemed that there is a mischievous Zashiki-warashi living at the ryokan. Will he be able to properly help out and last the summer?
