Fifteen years after the Heiji Rebellion, the Heike clan has reached the height of its power, while the Genji clan remains devastated by defeat. Hidden deep within the mountains of Kurama lives Shanao, the youngest surviving male heir to the Genji name. However, Shanao harbors a deep secret known by very few.

The youngest heir to the Genji name is no man.

Torn between her duty to live up to the Genji family name and her desire to live a peaceful life, Shanao sets off in hopes to take down the Heike stronghold and finally bring peace in the country.

Key Features

The Object of My Affection – Shanao will encounter five potential routes, each with an Affection Level – a meter that shows how much you have progressed with the character based on the choices made. Once you've decided on your route, maintain your Affection Level to get up close and personal with someone…

Testing My Abilities – There are 3 Character Abilities Shanao possesses: Strength, Knowledge, and Kindness. As you progress, you are given choices that will affect her Character Abilities. Try to find an equal balance for all 3 abilities. Too high or low of any ability can trigger a bad outcome!

Apple of My Ai – The Ai-Catch system allow players to gauge how their choices affect a character’s Affection Level and Shanao’s Character Abilities in real time! A seedling will indicate a poor Affection Level, while a blooming flower shows a promising Affection Level. The outer frame of the screen will also change into 3 colors: Red, Blue, and Green. Respectively, each color is associated with Shanao’s Character Ability: Strength, Knowledge, and Kindness. Keeping a close tab on your decision can help Shanao reach her true ending!

Take Another Stab – After completing a chapter, players can revisit it and manipulate the Affection Levels and Character Abilities – the two main measures that determines the progress of a route. If you feel Shanao is headed down the wrong path, replay the chapter and get back on track!

    This was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I am very proud to say Birushana was my very first limited edition. The game is amazing. I love the characters and the story. I also love every single item in the limited edition. I would definitely recommend and I'm looking forward to future purchases~

    Good quality

    Posted by Audrey Lim on 5th Jul 2022

    My first time purchasing a limited edition and it arrived in great quality! I think it's quite worth it because of the art book and drama tracks, plus that steel case! Gorgeous! Can't wait to play it!

    Birushana is so much better than Hakuoki and Nightshade! It's very fast paced, and the romance is pretty nice too!

    Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei

    Posted by Noseboop2501 on 5th Jul 2022

    I have been excited for this release since it was first announced and (so far) it does not disappoint. I've only just finished Noritsune's route and I loved every minute of it, the story has so many twists and surprises with a very satisfying conclusion. Our heroine Shanao is a warrior in more than just name, she is truly an accomplished fighter, and its such a breath of fresh air to have an MC who can not only defend themselves but also protect the people they care about. The dialogue has been well translated from what I've seen so far and I've very much enjoyed the complex, action-packed, and well-written story. Visually, the game is gorgeous with beautifully detailed character models and backgrounds/settings that highlight them. I've very much looking forward to going through the rest of the routes to see how the larger story unfolds and how the other LIs stack up, but I definitely and wholeheartedly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys otome.

    Ah! I love this LE. I ordered it as soon as preorders opened, and I am not disappointed. I haven't loved a game this much in a while. Fingers crosses for the fandisk to be localized!

    Great game

    Love limited editions! Please improve the quality of the boxes - go back to the old collection boxes like Edo Blossoms. The new boxes for LE are thin and flimsy and fall apart. I like the old ones because they are sturdy and look good displayed.

    Preordered was definitely worth it! The packaging was absolutely beautiful and so were the cards. Loved everything included in the package.

    There's not much I can say other than IFI jumping back into the otome genre has elevated game releases to a new level. Their LEs are made with so much love and consideration for fans that it's impossible not to notice. Not to mention their translation quality is great and the otomes aren't treated as less of a game due to the romance aspect like some other companies may consider it.
    All in all I suggest supporting these releases when possible, especially the LEs since they are so fun for merch collectors and look very pretty on display
