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?

Do you mean, could they have worked simultaneously?  I don't think so.  Mio's interactions with both of them are important for their reveals later on, so having two white-haired Remainings encourage you throughout the game would be repetitive.  If you were asking which suits the game better, I would say Itsuki for having Ryozo return, the escape plot and actually knowing Yae and Sae for the misnaming mindscrew and angst later on.   

 

The more I think about it, the timey-wimey twist with Mio doesn't do Kureha's current character any justice.  I much prefer she be her own independent character with the new lore and mind-reading than stuck on her tod waiting to make sense in a reveal you might not get.   :P

Yeah, I meant as the original concept for Kureha fitting into the story alongside Itsuki.

 

In that case though...gosh dang it why didn't she get a bigger role in DCB.

Their intention initially was to keep her story entirely within side material, so I think we got lucky.  Like everything else, the additions were bare bones.
