Da Capo centers around the period before Jun'ichi Asakura graduates from the affiliated section and enters the high school section of Kazami Academy (風見学園, Kazami Gakuen?) where Sakura Yoshino returns to the island after moving to America several years before. Jun'ichi Asakura has a power to see other person dreams, according to him it's kinda sucks (but not for me ^^) and when sleeping he often seeing one of the girls from his childhood, and also his childhood memories.
Most of the main stories revolve around the magical unwilting sakura tree and its powers.

My Opinion
it's a good game, but i find it kinda boring, first of all i'm not interested with the artwork, for me the eyes is little bit too big, and also the storyline is kinda flat, when i play one of the storyline it makes me sleepy (it's the truth), but many of my friend find it very-very interesting, i don't know why, maybe every people has their own taste of great visual novel. But in general i don't think this game is that bad, because I've read all of the story and fine one good storyline (at least there is one storyline i found interesting).About the music there is nothing wrong with it just a plain background sound that you'll never notice...it's kinda plain.
about the anime version of Da Capo i think it has the same problem with the visual novel one, The artwork is not interesting enough for me, but maybe it's one of the style of the artist who prefer a big eyes than a normal eyes. and according to the data which i get, it has a lot of series too, the visual novel and the anime one, the visual novel i found, Da capo Poker, and da capo II, and for the anime i don't know that much but it has a sequel too.

Da capo Girls

Da capo II

1.Jun'ichi Asakura (朝倉 純一, Asakura Jun'ichi?)
Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (drama CD), Mamiko Noto (young Jun'ichi, drama CD), Yuuki Tai (anime), Reiko Takagi (young Jun'ichi, anime)
Jun'ichi is the protagonist of Da Capo as the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 3-1, whose role the player assumes. While loathing trouble and bother, he seldom turns his back on someone in need. Jun'ichi has the ability to utilize magic, he can create wagashi with magic at the dispense of calorie, as taught to him by him and Sakura's grandmother. Like other characters, Jun'ichi is affected by the unwilting sakura tree, from which he gained his power to observe the dreams of other characters. He is one of the two returning characters in Da Capo II. Otome and Yume from Da Capo II are his granddaughters with Nemu. Jun'ichi's hair was light brown in the first season and black in the second and as well as the original game. He is unvoiced in all game releases except for the DVD-PGs. His first name is customizable in the original game.

2.Nemu Asakura (朝倉 音夢, Asakura Nemu?)

Voiced by: Kanon Torii (PC), Sakura Nogawa (anime/P.S.), Oto Agumi (Circusland I/D.C.P.K)
Nemu is the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 3-1, but later enrolls into a nursing school. She is Jun'ichi's adopted sister, actually in love with Jun'ichi and becomes mad when any other girl shows affection to him and uses 'accidental' violence to stop the affection between him and another person. She wears a bell as an accessory, given to her by Jun'ichi when they were young. When her mood turns sour, she becomes excessively polite and antisocial, a condition that Jun'ichi calls "hidden Nemu" (裏音夢, Ura Nemu?). Her cooking is described as lethal, to the point that Jun'ichi quietly calls her the "Murderous Chef" (殺人シェフ, Satsujin Shefu?). Her ending is considered to be the canon one, leading to Second Season and Da Capo II. Otome and Yume from D.C. II are her granddaughters with Jun'ichi. She's dead in Da Capo if and only in Da Capo if, though the cause of her death is unknown. She has a pen pal named "lovely burning", whose real name is Sayaka Shirakawa.

3.Sakura Yoshino (芳乃 さくら, Yoshino Sakura?)

Voiced by: Minami Hokuto (PC), Yukari Tamura (anime/P.S.)
Sakura is the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 3-3. She is Jun'ichi's elder cousin and first love. She is a very lively girl who, much to Nemu's dismay, shows great affection towards Jun'ichi. She is sometimes seen with Utamaru and understands what it says. While older than Jun'ichi, she addresses him as onii-chan (お兄ちゃん?, meaning "older-brother"), hoping that Jun'ichi would act like an elder brother to protect her. While sporting a great love for Japanese culture, she appears to be more of the mistaken foreigner. She has an IQ of 180, but she's inept with kanji due to growing up in America. She inherited her grandmother's magical ability. Despite the passing of several years, her appearance remains unchanged from what Jun'ichi and Nemu remember when she first left for America, which was explained to be so that she will always be as Jun'ichi remembers. She is one of the two returning characters in Da Capo II.

4.Kotori Shirakawa (白河 ことり, Shirakawa Kotori?)

Voiced by: Yura Hinata (PC), Yui Horie (anime/P.S.)
Kotori is the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 3-3 and the school's idol. Through the power of the magical sakura tree, she can hear other people's thoughts, but she carefully hides this ability. She became close to Jun'ichi because he was the only one in the male student body that did not try to idolize her. In the anime's first season, she is Sakura's classmate. She is also the younger sister of Koyomi Shirakawa, Jun'ichi's homeroom teacher. In the game it was mentioned that she was adopted into the Shirakawa family, and is the cousin of Sayaka Shirakawa from Suika. In the ova Jun'ichi marries her instead of Nemu. Nanaka Shirakawa from Da Capo II is her granddaughter with Jun'ichi Asakura.

5.Moe Mizukoshi (水越 萌, Mizukoshi Moe?)

Voiced by: Himawari Natsuno (PC), Yui Itsuki (anime/P.S.)
Moe is the student of Kazami senior high class 1-2, a gentle girl who is often seen throughout the series sitting on the roof at lunchtime cooking and eating Japanese steamboat dishes with her younger sister Mako and is very knowledgeable about them. She speaks rather slowly and is very polite but can be dim-witted at times and can fall asleep anywhere at any time, even when she's walking. In the game this was explained to be due to her constantly takes sleeping pills so that she can keep dreaming to meet a boy she liked but died in a traffic accident long ago through the powers of the magical sakura tree. She is often seen carrying a small xylophone.

6.Mako Mizukoshi (水越 眞子, Mizukoshi Mako?)

Voiced by: Minami Nagasaki (PC), Yuki Matsuoka (anime/P.S.)
Mako is the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 3-1. She is a close friend of Nemu and is often concerned about her. She can be angered easily. Asakura is the person who mostly makes her angry throughout the series, but she still secretly likes him. She is often found quarreling with Suginami as he teases her. During lunch, she can often be found on the rooftop with her sister Moe enjoying nabemono. She plays the soprano flute for the music club. She and her sister Moe are daughters of the hospital director, and they have a younger brother.

7.Miharu Amakase (天枷 美春, Amakase Miharu?)

Voiced by: Hiyori Haruno (PC/W.S.), Rumiko Sasa (after D.C.P.C.), Akemi Kanda (anime/P.S.)
Miharu is the student of Kazami affiliated junior high class 1-2. She is a childhood friend of Nemu and Jun'ichi after Sakura left, being one year younger than them. She loves bananas, especially eating them. She adores Nemu, and behaves much like a little puppy around her — in fact, her nickname is Puppy (わんこ, Wanko?). In the original game, an android patterned after her was put in place after an accident rendered her unconscious. Having no experience of the real world beyond certain memories copied from the real Miharu, Jun'ichi was tasked by Koyomi to look after her. Like the real Miharu her enthusiasm often overrules her common sense, and Jun'ichi often has to get her out of sight when her circuits start to overload. As an andriod, her power sources include bananas, solar energy, and a spring motor that needs to be wound up periodically using a key inserted into a hole on her back. At the end of the game and the first season her life expectancy runs out and stops functioning, spending her last moments with Jun'ichi. Sometime after that, the original Miharu regains consciousness and is reunited with everyone.
