Have I mentioned how much I love the drums in the theme song? Because I booted up the latest version of this game, and I love the drums in that opening sequence.

One of my favorite things about the soundtrack is the drum solo at the beginning of the theme song. I start waving my hands around, banging on imaginary drums that I don't actually know how to play. Halo: Combat Evolved may be my best memory as a gamer, but nothing gets me in the mood for my game like the main menu of Asagao Academy.
Yes, I think you should consider a decompression program. Personally, I prefer 7Zip but WinRAR should work just as well. If you still run into this issue, something may be wrong with the download, maybe your internet is allocating space for the file, and then assuming it's filled?
Once you receive your .zip file, you need to move it to another location from your downloads folder. Usually Documents or Program File is fine. When you've moved it, right-click the file and select <Extract All...>. Typically, this brings up a dialog that asks where you want the new folder to go, and the default is in the same location as your .zip file. When you've done this, simply open up your newly extracted folder, and run the Asagao Academy application.
If you're still having issues with your .zip file, try downloading WinRAR or 7Zip. These programs are designed to extract from various types of file, including .zip and .rar files. Just follow an online tutorial for extracting files with one of these programs, and you should be well on your way.
I have an error related to the journal mechanic, where opening the journal appears to be non-permissible due to a potential missing file, or miscalculated range or value? I have the traceback and a save file related to it. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem any reliable way to contact you guys with this information. Although, glancing up at the downloads, I'm just noticing 0.9 came out? It would be helpful if I could get updates when these things happen. Maybe it was fixed already? Being under-informed kinda sucks. It'd also be nice if there was a regular changelog, informing players what's been updated.
I have a couple saves on text that has typos, and will continue to accumulate them as I see them. I'm sure you're already hard at work on updating these, but I figured it'd be nice to have direct references. Let me know if this is useful to you at all, and I can share my email to give you the saves.
On another note, this is amazing. I wasn't expecting this game until November, and it's out now. After playing for a few hours, everything has been deeply moving, and all the introductions (knowing the personalities they're based on) have such a sense of hilarity. I feel really excited and giddy playing this, like a Christmas morning that lasts for a week. This is about everything I could hope for: a compelling story, meaningful decision-making, beautiful sprites and background art, a good soundtrack...the list can go on. I'm very pleased with the result. Whatever it is that you're doing, whatever the motivation and inspiration that has caused you to create this, don't lose sight of that. As a Normal Boots fan for a few years, I can say that this game really delivers.
