Dates are a great way to increase your Relationship EXP. Like gift giving, you can't go on dates without talking to a character for a while. Once you have at least 20 successful dialogues with the character, they will start to hint at going on a date when you talk to them.

You will need at least 50 HP.
To have a successful date you will need to raise the Mood to 6/6 and kiss the character. Talk to, give gifts they like, and take a photo with them to raise the Mood to be full in order to kiss.

Unlocking Characters

While a cast of characters are already present at the beginning of a game, there is an additional character that may be unlocked.

How To Unlock Ren

Talk to Kaoru and have successful dialogues until he mentions forgetting to bring lunch, reply with option 2: "That's not healthy! I'll make you a lunch later." From your Home, go the the Kitchen and make a Bento Lunchbox. Go back to School and give Kaoru the Bento Lunchbox. After the cutscene Ren will be at the Movie Theatre. The cheat code screwthebento can also be used to unlock Ren.


This game has 12 Endings. Each character has a "bad", good" and "best" ending.
On the day of The Cultural Festival, you will have 4 rooms you can go to. Going to the room a character is in will trigger an ending with them. Akito is in Your Class's Cafe, Mako is in The Haunted House, Kaoru is in The Auditorium, and Ren is in the Backstage Studio.

If you have not completed all of their dialogue (Talked to them enough until the "(Out of dialogue)" appears when you talk to them), you will get their "bad" ending.
If you have completed all of their dialogue but have less than 600 Relationship EXP with them, you will get their "good" ending where they confess their feelings and the game ends at The Cultural Festival.
To get their "best" ending, you need to complete all of their dialogue and have at least 600 Relationship EXP with them. A cut scene will play during or after The Cultural Festival such as a romantic gesture, wedding or seeing what children you have with them in the future.

Hidden Puzzles

There are puzzles are hidden throughout the map and answering them correctly rewards you with a Cheat Codes book or Walkthrough book that may be read in the library at School.

Math Puzzle (Library)

Answer: 3
The key to solving this puzzle is time. If it's 10:00 and if you take 4 hours away, the time would be 6:00. If it's 10:00 and if you add on 4 hours, then the time would be 2:00. Therefore, if the time is 9:00 and if you add on 6 hours, then the time would be 3:00.

Statue Puzzle (Beach)

Answer: touch
Take a look at your computer's keyboard. What letter is above "G"? What letter is to the left of "P"? The dots next to each letter show how they are written on the keyboard. Since "H" didn't have a dot next to it, it remained as "H".

Cheat Codes

Cheat Codes can be earned by getting the "best" endings or solving the puzzles. Use cheat codes by using the bottle on the beach.
