Can you be gay in PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo?

PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo is a horror visual novel developed and published by Square Enix that follows a group of people in Japan who become entangled in a centuries-old, local curse that is reawakened one night. The curse is tied to local folklore and associated landmarks, with each tale corresponding to a curse that can kill based on the legend it came from. Those who use these curses to kill and gather enough soul dregs can perform the Ritual of Resurrection, which is rumored to bring someone back from the dead.

We as players follow multiple characters, most of whom are these curse-bearers, as they either try to pursue the Right of Resurrection, or try to stop it from happening. We see citizens from all walks of life as we try to gather the various curse stones, and learn all about the history of Honjo and these characters’ ancestors. But of course, the most important question is: Can you be gay?

Can you be gay in PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo?

Unfortunately, there aren’t any dating mechanics in PARANORMASIGHT: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo. There are a few couples — who are all straight — but you can’t romance any of the single characters. This isn’t too surprising, as the point of this game is getting to the bottom of a deadly supernatural mystery, rather than trying to find love or romance.

However, shippers may enjoy the friendship between high school girls Mio and Yakko. While the pair aren’t an official couple and don’t flirt, they’re a dynamic duo that could easily fit into a teen romance headcanon. Personally, I hope they get a spin-off of their own to go on ghost-hunting adventures, since Mio is a medium and Yakko has a weird resistance to ghosts.
