Escape Day is absolutely adorable. You star as some kind of... cat/fox/puppy guy who has, as the game's intro nicely explains, been lured into, then trapped inside, a kitchen! A really cute kitchen, but still. The game is very well-rendered, quite polished in its own cartoony way, and from what I've seen so far has some nice puzzling. In fact, it would be definitely full review-worthy if not for...the dreaded language barrier! That's right, everything is in Japanese, and it does sadly seem that understanding the text would be quite helpful.
Escape Day is still solvable, but because of the barrier will probably require a considerable amount of trial and error and experimentation. If you're willing and able to be patient, however, you'll be rewarded with a very well-crafted, smart, entertaining escape game.

This is my first walkthrough, so don't judge it to harshly.
click on the box of lemons to take some.
Turn left. Look at the empty box and get aluminum foil.
check the leftmost ovan to get a book. Check the rightmost oven to get a piece of paper. Check the big gray thing and find cheese.
Turn left twice. Look in the unlocked drawer for a fork.
Turn right. Look at the picture on the wall. click left, right, left to make it fall. Zoom out, and click on the fallen picture again. Click the left side to turn it over. Use the fork to get the other piece of paper.
Go to the first scene and click the switch next to the door to turn out the lights. Go right. Click the white thing between the pots. Go back. Turn the lights on. Go and click on the place where the white thing was to get for golden rectangles.
Interacting with the objects.
Note:"Look at an item" means click it, then hit about item.
Look at a paper.(It doesn't matter which one)click on the other one and put them together. Go to the screen with the boxes, and click on the papers and the light.
KITCHEN (caps are important)
Look at the book. Keep clicking on the right until you've closed the book and are looking at the back cover. There's a rectangle at the bottom. Click it to get a card.
Go left. Look at the cheese, then attach the fork. Click the oven on the left, then the gray thing coming out of the wall. Turn the nozzle and zoom out. Zoom in on the gas burners on top. Click the yellow nob. Click the cheese, then the blue flame. Take the fork off the cheese when you have melted cheese.
Go right next to the open box is a mouse hole. Zoom in and leave the cheese. Then leave and come back. The mouse is eating the cheese. Take the gray key sticking out of the hole, then leave.
Go left twice. click on the computer. Click the button to turn it on, then click the lower file. Insert
KITCHEN (caps count!)
then look at the file. You probably can't read it, but the game won't let you finish if you haven't looked at it.
Go left. Use the key on the locked drawer and get the cords. Click on the lemons, then the knife on the cutting board.
Zoom in on the four cups. put the lemons in the cups. Look at the aluminum foil and take a piece. Look at the foil piece, then put the golden blocks on them. You should get blocks like the gold ones, only silver.
Put in the lemons the gold blocks, silver blocks, and the cords. Zoom out.
Open the fridge, and get the animal cards. Go right and click where the picture was on the wall. Put the animals there.
I'm borrowing what Bramble wrote because I can't read Japanese and I don't know where to find a translator that my annoying computer will accept.
Clues for the animal order
it is indeed a logic puzzle, the clues are as follows:
Shiro is not at the end.
First is between George and Shiro.
Sakura is at the end.
Bird is at one of the 3 spaces from the left.
George is not at the end nor is he next to Dan-San.
Sakura is next to Hakase
There are more than 2 spaces between Hakase & Shiro
George is not next to Hakase
But who is who ;)
k I'll attempt description
Bird is the easy one - can you guess ;)
Hakase wears glasses
Sakura wears a pretty pink bow
First is the hero of the piece- light brown dog
George is the dark brown dog
Shiro is the all white dog
Dan-san wears a funky green bandana
If you really can't be bothered enjoying the fun of the logic puzzle
Order is from left to right
Sakura(pink bow), Hakase(glasses), Bird(bird), George(dark dog), First(light dog), Shiro(white dog), Dan-san(green bandana dog)
Open the box and get the flashlight. Go left twice. Look at the flashlight, turn it on, then put it on the square with writing. Turn out the light and look at where the flashlight's light is resting. Mark this 3x3 square down.
Go back, turn on the light, get your flashlight. Look at the keypad next to the door. Fill it in like the square. Zoom out and click on the door. Leave.
For the Normal Ending, go forward one more time. But for the Special Ending, shine your flashlight into the garbage can and get the paper. put it in the back of your book where there's a ripped page.
Look at the page compared to the dots on the previous page. you end up with roman numerals
V I IX IV, or 5194.
Go back inside and to the red double doors. Slide your card from the back of the book. Enter
Go through the red doors and you're out.
