I'm posting this here instead of Deep Crimson Butterfly because she was originally going to be in the PS2 game, and the character she ended up becoming is incompatible with the original vision for her.
Could the original concept for Kureha (A warning for Mio as an echo to what she will become if she fails and would become in one of the scrapped endings) have still worked in the story with Itsuki still having the role that he does? They said that Kureha's concept became Itsuki's character but it sounds like she wouldn't have played the same role that he did. Could the story have still worked if she was include as she was conceptualized, while still keeping Itsuki and his impact on the storyline in the game?
