A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Kotone Kaneko doesn't have any real friends who she can trust, and when her so called "friends" turn on her due to an unpaid debt, Kotone can do nothing but run.
Her life slowly turns 180 degrees though, when an underclassman with an unusual background unexpectedly saves her from her ordeal. The two begin to grow closer and Kotone's own feelings start to become a muddled mess, not knowing just what these new emotions are. She finds herself running away, but this time to forget about these forbidden feelings towards her new friend. Despite constantly pushing the thoughts away, she finds herself time and time again drawn towards the cheerful ball of happiness.
Will Kotone stop being a coward and take the risk of losing her only friend? Or will she manage to successfully push down the rising emotions? Take a short read through "One's Lonesome, Two's Company" and join the delinquent's road to dealing with her new gay feelings!
Hello, Team ANPIM here! Back at it again for a Yuri Game Jam, with another cheesy yuri kinetic novel!
This time, we finished a week before the due date as opposed to our... tradition of starting a week before the deadline;;;;;;;;;; OLTC (I guess we can abbreviate it to 1, 2) is longer than our previous novels, and I hope it's improved somewhat from them! Once again, it was the artist's idea to partake in this year's jam and as always, she puts unnecessary stress on herself for doing these, especially cause she's literally doing everything now;;;;;; For the sake of yuri!!!
We hope you enjoy this kinetic novel and be sure to check out our previous ones!

This game was so cute! And those cats match the girls to a T. I haven't read the 2 most recent releases yet, but One's Lonesome is easily on par with Most Popular Girl in terms of quality. Loved the bonus doodles at the end and the little extra bits in the notebook while they were studying. I've always been a bit annoyed with text errors from the previous games, so I appreciate there were pretty much none here from what I could tell.
Thank you!! One's Lonesome is my personal favorite (though Model Not Maid is soon taking that spot haha) ! Hope you had fun seeing the little bits and of course the little Easter eggs in the notebook in the studying scene hehe. Thank you!!
# Spoilers WARNING
# A not-possible-in-ANPIM's-game cliche alternative bad ending
# Thankfully ANPIM ALWAYS makes good endings, so 100% recommand! (I am a shallow person haha)
Deep in the night when you found yourself liking a girl. Then she received a love letter from, say, a somewhat handsome and popular boy. There's little chance that she will like you back. So yea, you said to her, go meet him at New Year's night.
Confession, marriage, expecting a baby, all between she and that nameless boy. You ran into her at that big maneki neko ten years later, with a child holding her hand. "Just wanted to let you know that I loved you in high school." She whispered to you in your ear. But look at her playing happily with her child, so again, no regret.
Ah, that's definitely an alternative route that could have happened haha. I can totally see that happening, honestly, if Hibiki had decided to give the guy a chance! Sad for Kotone though :(
Hi!! I'm very excited to play this game later!! I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested in localizing this game to french? i'm a wlw translation student looking to expand my portfolio, so i'd love to have the opportunity to work on translating this game (for free ofc!!!)!! lemme know if you'd be interested!
Slowly making my way back through Team Anpim's entire catalog of wonderful Yuri games, I arrive at One's Lonesome, Two's Company. The entire pacing of the game feels quite different from their newer titles. Immediately you're thrown into Kotone getting beaten up, with Hibiki being introduced soon after. It's not apparent that either are lesbians, instead focusing on getting to know one another and becoming friends first.Our two main girls are both great in their own ways, I'd like to briefly touch on what I liked and disliked about them. Starting off with Kotone... She's actually a very responsible person, despite some of her quirkiness that can make her appear as a delinquent at times. In contrast, Hibiki who has a more uniform appearance is actually in need of help when it comes to school work which I thought was entertaining. When it comes to things I would've changed, I have two things that come to mind. Hibiki is the daughter of a yakuza which I think could've been utilized more in the plot to make some interesting encounters. In regards to music, I thought the tracks chosen could've been better. My final nitpick is actually with Kotone's sprite believe it or not. It didn't match my expectations of a Team Anpim design. While in the CG's she looked great, having her always staring off into the distance made it hard to picture her talking to other people. This is only my opinion, but I wanted to include a few thoughts.
Taking just slightly over two hours to complete the game, I was thoroughly happy with it. Each of these games I've played has managed to feel comfortably familiar, while being distinctive as its own story. It's nice to go back through and see a team who is incredibly consistent on releasing high quality games. Team Anpim has a wonderful artist and writer, who I only wish was able to dedicate themselves full time to creating wholesome Yuri novels.
I can fully recommend playing One's Lonesome, Two's Company in addition to their many other titles that I'm sure you will enjoy too!
Woaah!! Thank you for doing yet another playthrough of one of our games!! We really really really appreciate all the time and effort you take to playthrough our games with commentary <3 I just finished watching it, it was great!
As this is one of our (kind of) older games, I do agree with the music and Kotone's sprite LOL. Kotone's sprite wasn't meant to make her look like she's looking off into the distance and I honestly never really noticed it until now, but I totally get what you mean now that you mention it and the more I look at her LOL.
Happy to hear that you liked the bonus doodles haha,
though I wonder if you remembered Kotone's cameo in Most Popular Girl in School Anywho! We look forward to watching more of your playthroughs of our games and hope you'll enjoy our older games as well (even if they might be slowly declining in quality LOOL) ! I wish I can also create yuri games full time too v n v, oh what a dream that would be ; u ;
A big wholehearted thanks to you once again! :)
Yep, officially obsessed. This is, unsurprisingly, my second game from you. Still debating which I liked better, but almost everything I said about ICBTMPGASIALJBM (what an acronym) applies here as well. The visuals, characters, story... gah. I look forward to seeing your future work, keep it up.
this was so frickin adorable, great art and great work!
I'm really fond of cheerful girls like Hibiki!!!!! The plot is awesome, I love the confession sccene(the cgs are beautiful!!!!!), and I totally cried at the ending!! I did oral translation to Chinese for this one too!https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV14Q4y1a7aN?spm_id_from=333.999.0.0
Thank you again!!! Hibiki is such a good girl :') We all need a Hibiki in our lives, don't we.
First, I want to say thank you very much for making Yuri VN Game because I really like all of your games.
Second, Thank you for making games on Ren'Py
Third, I really really like this game, Hibiki and Kotone are a very cute couple and I really really like it and also I really like the last picture after finishing the game.
I also play this game with JoiPlay because I can't play this game on my PC (If I play Yuri Game on PC I'm afraid my parents will know, lol).
I finished the game and I really enjoyed the game and then I saw the preview image for this game and there are Sprites and others but they don't appear in JoiPlay so basically I miss Hibiki and Kotone Sprites while playing the game, but everything else still appear except the Characters Sprite but it's okay because the story is really good!!
Thank you so much for playing our game! Interesting how the sprites don't appear when playing on JoiPlay hmmmm... weird. Anyway super glad you enjoyed the game!!!
Why do your stories always fill me with happiness and high amounts of sugar due to all the sweetness. I told myself id play this for about 20 minutes then carry on another day and i binged it all In about an hour and loved every second of it. It was wholesome, sweet and genuinely Cute. Once again ive fallen for your charming characters and stories
Hehe, because we give you your quick fix for short, cheesy, and fluffy yuri :) Thanks once again for picking our kinetic novels up!
team ANPIM ? is there another way than paypal to give a little support to your games ?
Unfortunately, there's no other easy way than paypal as of right now v n v You can still pay with a credit card when you click on "Pay with Paypal" and choose the "Pay with credit card or visa debit card" option! But other than that, I do not have any other more secure options for payment v n v
thank you very much i didnt knew i could still pay with card once i clicked paypal without being registered to a paypal account :) a little support on this one and on secret satiation :)
this visual novel is so good :) it's so adorable ,cute,lovely , i don't know which word is better but it warm my heart :) <3<3
AAAAAA im like 45 min in and I LOVE IT its so cuteee

Damn.... my heart.....
Downloads this VN *loads kitty launcher to see if this is as good as other VN's"
I can't get over how cute this was!!! I was in love with both of the main characters and love the fact that I get to see them work through friendship! Also loved the little detail at the very end that showed what happened to them after the story was done!
Thank you for playing through our game!! Super glad to hear you enjoyed it aaahh!!! <3
-Made a Video.
This is my favorite novel. I fell in love with it. The art style is to die for and the story will hook you up until the end. Everything from it, is amazing I can't help wanting for more. This team is amazing. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
Thank you so much! ; U ; It always always always makes our heart warm to hear that people enjoyed our game! Thank you so much for the support <3
I'M GONNA PLAY THIS I SWEAR-
Honestly, tell your artist that they're a god, okay? There are three reasons I really love Team ANPIM's games, one of them being the art (other two being adorable plot and lesbians). I can't wait to play this one! BTW, do you have Discord or a Discord server? I'm on Discord 24/7, so I'd love to see ya on there. Have a happy Pride Month, stay safe, and I'll play this as soon as I can!
!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We hope you enjoy the game!! And thank you so much for the praise for the artist! :' ) It really means a lot <3 Also, unfortunately, we do not have a Discord server, but maybe one day we'll be big enough to garner interest and start one! :)
They're so cute with each other! They have really good chemistry. I just love the pun with the theirs surnames.
Hehe thanks for noticing the usage of "neko" in their names! These characters and their color palette are based off cats after all!
i loved this game so much, very sweet and has an amazing amount of gameplay!!
Nice relaxing story to read!
Also is the brief phone ringtone a Revue Starlight reference?
I just finished the game and all I can say is: IT'S GREAT
I have no idea how I found this VN at all (was looking through vndb) and stumbled across this gem. The short playtime had me skeptical at first on whether I should play it or no, but I decided to go for it anyway and it turned out to be an extremely pleasant few hours. Hibiki is SO CUTE and I really liked the bonus. I'm going to check out your other VNs now because I really liked this one. Keep making more!
WOWWW!!! Thank you so much!!!!
We're glad to hear that you gave our game a chance via VNDB (there are so many on there, it's a miracle you somehow stumbled upon ours!) We're so grateful that the VN became a pleasant surprise <3 The previous VNs might not be as good as this one as they are older, but we hope you'll have a good time!!!
bout 10 mins in and im likin it so far! the writing sometimes doesnt make sense, such as kotone complaining about her school makin her wear a skirt cuz shes cold, even tho she has obviously shortened her skirt to the point that its a bit obscene lmao XD and why did she so vehemently insist on leaving hibikis house right after she woke up and ate, just to be lonely and even say herself she should have stayed when she got home? kind of negligable to point out, its jus that it made no sense at all lol. but obviously that stuff is quite minor, while some doesnt make sense i find most of the writing cue, charming, and well done. i like the character art and the music is a lil different than most VNs, which is a plus in my book! ill def be finishing it tomorrow, i hope those terrible girls get whats comin to em! or at least feel some remorse lol, i mean how do u just beat agirl half to death like that?? lol jus terrible... thx so much for makin it!
Hey there! Thank you so much for the feedback! The skirt bit I agree is a laughing matter haha. Blame the artist for liking short skirts LOOL!! As for your second point, it was to showcase that Kotone is a really guarded person, especially when it comes to strangers. She JUST met Hibiki and she has no idea who she is, except that Hibiki helped her. Since Hibiki was a stranger, Kotone wanted nothing to do with her and recluse back to her usual lonely self. She then realizes she should have stayed at Hibiki's house (as a thought only, I don't recall her madly regretting she should have stayed) because she realizes the company Hibiki had given her was a lot warmer, in contrast to the cold empty house she went home to.
Hope that explained a bit for that part! :) Thank you once again though for even leaving a comment and giving feedback + compliments! We hope you enjoy the rest of the VN! <3
beautiful, lovely .
Hibiki was soo cute <3 and the game itself was short but enjoyable definately didn't regret those 90 minutes i spent on this game! and it's free definately give it a try if you're into romance stuff.
Woooo!! So glad you enjoyed it!! And yes haha Hibiki is a pure
sinnamon cinammon roll hehehehe. Thank you for reading through it!! <333
I'd like to point out that the pc zip also includes the Linux version of the game. In any case, the game was very enjoyable : they're so adorable ^^
Oh thank you for pointing that out! And thank you so much for enjoying our kinetic novel!! <3 So glad you like the characters ; u ;
ALSO! We're very very very happy that you recognized that ringtone C:
Totally worth playing/reading if you're in the mood for some quick yuri fluff (it took me about 90 minutes to finish). For being so short, I can't really nitpick over much. The only thing I didn't like was the BGM played during Kotone's fights, it didn't quite fit, in my opinion. The art is great, though. Both of the characters' personalities are really cute in their own ways. I really liked the little extra page after the ending, too, added some more character to both of them. I'm also a sucker for the color scheme going on here, that light orange and green- personal brownie points!
Now I'm going to have to check out TeamANPIM's previous works while looking forward to next year's VN. Keep up the good work! :3
Thank you for the feedback! If only our music guy was free this time v n v As great as royalty free music is, there's never one that hits just the spot. But thank you so much for playing and enjoying it! Also grateful that you left such a positive feedback as well ; u ; Your support is greatly appreciated and loved!! Please have fun reading through our other works! :)
what a lovely story! i love how the busts look against the out of focus backgrounds, it really makes the character art shine! such a sweet little vn <3
WOAH!! Thank you so much! Such an honor to have you play one of our vn/kinetic novels! We're so glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for taking the time to pick it up!! <3
this.is.amazing. OMG! I'm currently 20 minutes in and I already am hooked!
Thank you!! Very ecstatic you were hooked!! Hope you enjoyed the rest of the visual novel after the 20 minutes haha! :)
Love-dovey cheesy yuri is wonderful. Don't stop.
Yes!! We really hope to keep going with more in the future! Yuri has too much suffering already, we need that fluffy and cheesy yuri sometimes! We hope you enjoyed our game!
Literally one of the best vn I found <3
Oh thank you so much for thinking this highly of 1, 2 (abbreviated cause boy, this is a longer title)! We're grateful that you had a great time!!
Hi. I'm been waiting for you next game. and I'm happy to see that realised something again. ♥
As you may remember, I wasn't disappointed with any of your previous products ;D
Thisa time it was great, too.
I'll start with the plot... Plot is great as always ♥
I felt so sorry for what happened to MC in opening scene.
Even if she owned them money, they should'nt treat her this way. Fake friends and bad people!
Poor Kotone T_T
But few moments later she met beautiful, quiet, kind girl. Hibiki :3 So cute... <3
The begening of their friendship were... hard? Two totally different girls - one very kind and polite vs. cold and deliquent one.
Plus Hibiki's secret... But Kotone didn't care about it and she wasn't scared of her or rumors about her family. :) They became friends. Good friends - caring for each, helping each other and talking about everything. It's kind of friends none of them ever had (i guess). They found each other when they needed each other the most (even if they didn't knew it).
Two weeks later Hibiki saved Kotone again. Few days later Kotone helped Hibiki (twice). Some time later... Kotone realised what she feels... She tried to hide it. As hard as she can (even if it'd mean ivoiding, disapointing and hurting Hibiki). It was just too silly, even as for her...
And finally... They told each other what they feel... and that they like each other. I almost cried. It was so beautiful scene. And they were happy having and loving each other.
Artstile is very good. Especially sprites. BGs, Ui and musicare ok. Well done and good looking characters. Their styles match their personalities.
Good work :)
Great game, great plot. And your the best game so far. Sorry for summarizing plot xD. I just tought it'd be the best way to show how I like this game ♥
Thank you for reading yet another one of our works!! <3 Super glad you like this one too!! Until next year HAHA. Again, really appreciate you liking our games!!
!!! Thank you so much for reading!! We're really happy to hear that you enjoyed it! <3 And thank you for the video playthrough as well!! Your kind words encourages us to create an even better game next time (hopefully)! Please also enjoy our previous games when you have the time ; u ;
Hey there! I played a bit of your game and made a video about it! I really like the portraits for the main characters, they're really well-drawn. I'll play the rest of the game later on my free time! Keep up the great work!
Wow! Thank you SO MUCH for giving the game a (partial and hopefully full) playthrough!! Glad you like it so far ; u ; The guessing of the rooftop (oops, spoilers for others?) comment really got me and I couldn't help but laugh HAHA. We hope you end up liking the entire game when you get to it! Thank you once again for the great video! ; U ;
do you guys want (and welcome) feedback about this? I haven't seen any way to private message , cose I would've liked that .
You could message udon-udon on Tumblr if you really want it to be in private. Pretty sure they're part of the team.
yeah , sorry..I dont have Tumblr , facebook and such lol .
I just leave my feedback here then .
The art is nice , darn well made even .
the game suffer from spelling , grammar and such but I aint a grammanazi though .
homewhever , where it suffer the most is the beginning . the character (the main girl) come off as an ass (sorry) but she does . I had a hard time feeling bad for her , and I almost quit the game right there and then . But though I give the game a full run , and gotta say it get better later . Happy ending and all . BUT , yes the BUT..is the whole romance kinda come from out of the blue . There is no build up to it or anything .
which is a shame , because you do have solid characters (just need a bit more fleshing out) and to fix a few things at the beginning . For exemple , the 'Bullies' are called 'friend' when they should be 'aquaintance' at best or 'Loan shark' . Second , the whole *loan' idea is nice but it doesn't feel right . I understand that some stuff can be made just to get a story going to create a situation . I just though I point it out .
and when I say doesn't feel right , it just for a 'Student' to 'borrow' money to give to 'parent' for 'gambling' , and you paint this character as somehow of average intelligence . well that is just dumb . Add the fact that the said 'parent' are never heard from , and you never hear about the issue of 'parent x child' .
Like I said , I understand when you create an idea just to get the story going . But it make the reader question if there should be more and such . As such , I think a school loan would've fit better since the mc is attending school . And then create some tensions with school bullies because those parasite exist even without a reason .
So I don't know if you are going to work more on this story or not , but these are my feedback .
Hey! Thank you so much for the feedback! Really helps us improve our next game (hopefully!) by pointing out stuff like this. We apologize if you felt any dissonance for our characters in the beginning, we were trying to paint Kotone as a type of person to shut people out/keep to herself (hence her initial attitude). I agree with you though, build up was kind of lacking, and maybe in the future we can flesh out the stories better. Though two months really is tough -sweats-. We will work around it!!
Thanks once again for the constructive criticism! Really appreciate it! And thank you for giving it a chance by reading it to the end! <3
I'm supposed to rename the file to rar. or something ?
Hmmm.. I don't believe so, you should be able to unzip it with your preferred unzipping program. Our previous games are all compressed into .zip files as well. Let me know if it still doesn't work! :)
