Love and Friendship

Obviously, there are about 60 million ways to change the how guys feel about you and raise love/friendship. This is a down and dirty summary of everything you ever wanted to know, and even more things that you didn't.

School

First, let's look at ways to increase love at school.

Tests

Score well on tests to increase the tokimeki. See Testing Well.

The values in parentheses ( ) add onto Friend for Himuro-sensei.

Afterschool

When you ask someone (or are asked) home from school, the following chart shows how it affects the guy in question and the other guys.

If you go to the coffee shop, or if you take the long way home together after a date, you can ask some of the following questions.

However, if you are best friends with the guy, the options change to the table below. #10 looks like #8, but apparently the answers are different. Note that when you're best friends with a guy, he will always appear to be Friendly, but check with Tsukushi for the real feelings. When these shift into Like or Love, then you can ask about #11 or #12.

Folk dance

Dance partnerFriend +1

Guys with at least 70 Friend appear as dance partners in order of friendship from highest to lowest. If no one appears, it means you have no friends. ^_^

Culture Festival

The culture festival is the easiest way to earn parameter points, and it's also a good way to make the men love you. You need 12 points for a success. Every success with the "Festival" command gives you 2 points, and every failure takes away 1.

Dating

For obvious reason, dating is one of the best and most controllable ways to work the love.

Phone

Simply picking up the phone goes a long way to decreasing the hurt feelings.

Ditching

Sometimes, you just have to turn down a date or miss a date.

Clothing

Clothing is one of the most reliable and controllable ways to make dates go well. Not only that, but the points add up! There are two main categories: style and fashion, and you can get points for each. The guy may not say anything unless both the top and bottom are completely different from last time, but the points will still count.

Good Dates

Making the right choices during a date quickly builds up the points. Every date offers three responses to a question. Succeed at this, and if the guy feels Like or Love, he'll ask you to continue the date, which allows you to ask questions (see the coffee shop questions in Afterschool). And if you really want to pimp the dates, wait until you have several holidays in a row. Go on continuous dates to really build the love!

Double Date

If you become good friends with a girl and know her favorite guy, she may invite you out on a double date at the Amusement Park! It's a fun way to earn Tokimeki or Friend and, let's face it, it's just hysterical to watch.

Bomb

The number one way to screw with a relationship is to let a bomb explode. Phone any guy with a bomb right away, or else!

Other character-20%-20%

VS Mode

Versus mode isn't just bad for relationships with girls. It's also horrible for relationships with the guys. During versus mode...

Play with the girl until your legs fall off and keep dating the guy to keep friendship levels from dropping!

Other Tricks

Finally, there are a few other ways to earn love.

Monthly Values

By keeping your parameters up, you can easily get bonus Tokimeki every month (see Tokimeki!). But there are also a few other ways points are calculated every month.

Album Events

Album events (events that give you the pretty CG images) are an easy way to build massive Tokimeki. For all the events, see Complete Album Guide.

New Year's

New Year's has decent opportunities to build love or parameters, but the real key is the ability to wear a furisode (see Clothing). Spend the dough and don't miss this chance!

Valentine's Day

Finally, the day made for love! Improve both skills and Sense to make the best chocolate possible! You can redo the chocolate up to 4 times, but the stress will increase each time.
