Moonchime Studios has shared a new character profile for Haunted Obachestra. Their Twitter account revealed some info on the lycanthrope Gioh von Wolfhart. The joseimuke visual novel developed by Poni-Pachet will have a Kickstarter launched in July, 2022, though more details about this crowdfunding campaign will be shared later.
Written by Yumas (Ozmafia!!, Steam Prison), Haunted Obachestra tells the story of a young man or woman called Yukiha Nasu. They end up moving into a western-style house because rent is cheap but not only will they share a house with multiple people, these individuals happen to be non-humans who love playing old-fashioned instruments and practice in the basement.
We already know the vampire Exnaz von Enterstein and incubus Merry Christhrnova. Now it’s the turn of the werewolf Gioh von Wolfhart, whose voice actor is Makoto Furukawa (Steam Prison’s Adage, Cupid Parasite’s Allan Melville, among many other relevant roles).
Gioh is a proud member of the lycanthrope race who feels a lot of pride and is a member of the royal lineage but there are simply way too many other successors above him in the line for the throne. He has a strong accent but it only shows when he’s too distracted to mask it out. However, his accent isn’t the only thing he tries to hide, but also a deep insecurity related to believing he doesn’t have talent.
He can be a little too uptight at times, which makes it easy for him to get into arguments with other people. Nonetheless, deep down, he’s a honest, good guy and it’s more of a matter of attitude. Also, one interesting aspect is that he sees Exnaz as a rival, a play on the old rivalry of werewolves and vampires.
If you’d like to check out Gioh’s voice, you can check out the official Japanese site for Poni-Pachet’s multimedia project which offers a few samples of his voice. There are also two audio samples for his music in the CDs based on the project. Check his character song below:
