    Shiritsu Justice Gakuen: Legion of Heroes is a 3D graphics fighting game,
    first released in Japan late in 1997. The game boasted a dynamic,
    uncharacteristic (of CAPCOM) cast of characters, an intricate storyline, 
    and most importantly, very workable gameplay reminiscent of X-Men VS. Street
    Fighter on a Tekken-like frame that belied Capcom's past misfirings at 3D 
    fighting games. Adding more to the popularity was the inclusion of the
    fighting schoolgirl Sakura, from the Street Fighter Zero/Alpha series, as a
    hidden character. The following year, a US version barely localized was
    released in limited areas under the title Rival Schools: United By Fate
    in arcades. The game slowly built a cult following afterward, which grew even 
    more with the release of the game on the Playstation console in 1998.
    The home version included not only an Arcade Disk that contained all the
    action, endings, demos, and such of the arcade version, but an extra Evolution
    Disk, which, in the Japanese version, contained a mode called "Nekketsu 
    Seishun Nikki (Hot-Blooded Youth Diary)" in which one takes a character of
    the player's own creation on his or her path through one year of school.
    Along the way, one would encounter various activities that would determine
    the moves the character would use upon the end of the year's term. The 
    friendships one could make along the way with the game's cast also had a 
    bearing on one's end result. This yielded several extra games such as the
    Gorin Sports Festival mini-games and the Burning Examinations. This mode
    added a lot of replay value to a game that could very well have run out of
    it, but unfortunately the mode was eschewed from the US release, save the
    mini-games. A group of lame pre-edit characters to be unlocked were put in
    the place of the missing Nekketsu Seishun Nikki; for Rival Schools fans, this
    wasn't a very fair trade off. The Evolution Disk also contained new super
    attacks and special moves for certain characters to make them more "complete";
    both disks added extra outfits for Natsu, Tiffany, and Hinata, as well as two
    completely new characters, Daigo and Hayato. Of another issue was the 
    sometimes provocative issues tackled in the story mode (i.e. Roy's anti-
    Japanese sentiment, etc.), when ported to the US and Europe, these things
    were horribly removed (all direct references to Japan were taken out, yet
    one could clearly hear Roy say things such as "Japanese Business Man!" to
    Hideo even under the Kana-ized English). The "What You Didn't See" sections
    of this document will address these issues.
    Nekketsu Seishun Nikki 2, a one-disc update to the Evolution Disk, not an 
    official sequel, was released in the summer of 1999. This game added two more
    characters to the fray, Ran and Nagare, as well as new minigames, including
    the infamous Doki-Waku-Dance minigame. This game never saw a release on US
    Moero! Justice Gakuen, the official sequel to Shiritsu Justice Gakuen: Legion
    Of Heroes was released in 2000 for the arcades, utilizing the Dreamcast-
    compatabile NAOMI board. A Dreamcast home version surfaced late in 2000, 
    almost 3 years to the date of the release of the first of the series in
    arcades. The Seishun Nikki mode of the first was replaced with a board
    game in which one's own created characters could go on a more random journey
    of making friendships and gaining moves. As was the case with the original
    Rival Schools, the US-ported sequel, Project Justice removed this addition and
    put in lame edit characters to be unlocked in its place. On the other hand,
    the US version did do a better job of translating the dialogue this time
    Since then, despite some cameos by the Taiyo team in Capcom VS SNK 2, the
    Justice Gakuen series has seen no further activity.
    			School And Character Profiles
    		-=Taiyou Gakuen "The School That Loves Freedom"=-
    Taiyou Gakuen (Academy) has a middle school and a high school; Batsu and the
    others attend the high school. There are about 720 students attending the 
    high school section. With only six (homeroom) classes to a grade, Taiyou is
    a little bit of a small-scale school. The school's motto is "A liberated
    school tradition yields carefree students". They have school uniforms, but
    they do not raise a fuss about wearing them.
    Almost the same number of students that have attended Taiyou since middle
    school have gone on to take the written college interview exam and be
    accepted. Rather than looking just at grades, the interviews take extra-
    curricular activity into account, and a school entrance exam that regards
    the student's individuality is also carried out. As mentioned before, the
    school's educational objective is "a liberated school tradition yields care-
    free students". The plan is to give students freedom in their lives at school.
    Profile: Tackling anything with enthusiasm, Taiyou is a normal coed-school with 
    a burning school spirit. However, lately, that school spirit has been

    Home Life: 		Batsu lives with his mother, Shizuku
    Likes: 			Straight things, ninja, his mother
    Dislikes: 		Dogs (he was bitten by a dog when he was little
    			and though he can't remember it, the trauma that
    			came of the incident fuels his dislike), crooked
    			things, unfair things
    Special Talent: 	Eating fast

    Worst Subject(s): 	Anything else
    Club: 			He has not joined any club yet.
    Part-Time Job:  	A part time job is prohibited at Taiyou, but before he
    			sold newspaper and milk in order to help out his
    Personality:  		Impulsive, foul-mouthed, and belligerent, but at heart
    			he's got a strong sense of justice.  Batsu has a 
    			tender side, a kind heart that shows when he takes
    			care of his mother.  But, because of his tendency to
    			be forward and rough, Batsu is often misunderstood.
    Story:  		Batsu's mother Shizuku, who raised him alone since he
    			was a small child, suddenly vanished from her job at
    			Taiyou.  Batsu entered Taiyou in hopes of finding his
    			missing mother.  While investigating, Batsu learned
    			of a mysterious new school called Justice Gakuen. With
    			high hopes and a powerful spirit, Batsu enters the fight
    			to find his missing mother.
    Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
    			Personality: It's seen as a good thing nowadays for
    			good people to be made fun of by the bad; this sort
    			of crookedness in today's society fuels Batsu's 
    			anger. His rudeness and belligerent ways leave him
    			often misunderstood.
    			Story: Last time around, Batsu was on the hunt for
    			his kidnapped mother, and ended up confronting 
    			Justice Gakuen, a school led by his real father,
    			Raizo. Now, a second-year student at Taiyo, Batsu
    			was given a normal life at school, until the heated
    			rivalry at the Tai-P (Taiyo-Pacific) Showdown event
    			caused an uproar and he got caught in the fray while
    			investigating it.

    			Story: Having gone under his father Raizo's harsh

    			Batsu has also grown one round greater mentally.
    What You Didn't See:	Batsu's foulmouthed tendencies were downplayed in both
    			of the US versions of the game. Batsu often uses
    			the word "temee"  to address others, which is a very
    			rude and frowned-on way of saying "you".

    Worst Subject(s):  	Nothing particular
    Club:  			Member of the moral committee
    Part-Time Job:  	None (school rules prohibit it)
    Personality:  		The opposite of Batsu. Cool and calculating.  He
    			almost never shows his emotions, and each pose
    			and appearance he takes stands out with his coolness.
    			He doesn't show it on the outside, but inside he holds
    			a strong sense of justice. After a pose, he makes it 
    			a habit to touch his glasses with his right hand.
    Story:  		Wherever there's information to find on Batsu's
    			mother, Kyosuke and Batsu fight together in search
    			of information.  But it looks like Kyosuke has an
    			important secret that he can't tell Batsu...
    Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
    			Story: Now the chairman of the Student Morals 
    			Committee. The younger twin brother to Hyo,
    			he once was at the other side of his brother's
    			conspiracy plot, while at the same time helping
    			it. Now, along with Hinata and Batsu, he is
    			enveloped in investigating the Tai-P incident.  
    What You Didn't See:	Apparently, Kyosuke has taken up the saxophone, as
    			indicated in his Moero! Justice Gakuen Nikki board

    Nationality:		Japanese
    Relationship: 		Sakura and Natsu are her close friends
    Home Life: 		Hinata lives with both her parents and an
    			older sister Asaka, a college student.
    Likes: 			Cake, rare things, hand-to-hand fighting techniques
    Dislikes:  		Dirty things, bugs
    Special Talent: 	Moving her body, karaoke
    Best Subject(s): 	Social studies, Japanese, physical education
    Worst Subject(s):  	Calligraphy (she can't stay still)
    Club:  			She doesn't belong to one officially, but many people
    			ask for her help in the clubs
    Part-Time Job: 		None (school rules prohibit it)
    Personality:  		She's smart and excels in all sports.  Her winning 
    			spirit makes her a bit of a smart-aleck, and curi-
    			osity makes her a lively, cheerful, modern school-
    			girl. Her hand to hand techniques possess heavenly
    			talent, and an excellent fighting sense.  Through
    			training via a correspondence course, her skill
    			is at the level of those competing in national
    			tournaments. Because she just can't keep still,
    			she goes running around off campus after school.
    			She loves cake and always eats it on the way home
    			from school.
    Story: 			The rundown of her alma mater Taiyou Gakuen is an 
    			important thing, and she wanted other students to
    			fight with her, but no one would follow her.  Then
    			Batsu came to move into the downtrodden place. Since
    			they both have mutual purposes, they seem to be set
    			to go out together, however in a moment Batsu refuses
    			Hinata's offer to work with him. But since Hinata 
    			just can't keep still, she goes along with Batsu
    			against his will.
    Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
    			Story: She's an eccentric that picked up her skills
    			in hand to hand fighting from a correspondence course,
    			but her real skill is in origami. This time around,
    			she is enveloped in the brouhaha at the Tai-P event
    			with Batsu and Kyosuke. 		
    What You Didn't See:	CAPCOM, in the half-hearted localization of Rival
    			Schools, erroneously read and romanized Hinata's
    			surname as "Wakana". This is an easy mistake to make
    			since the "ba" in Hinata's name (which means "leaf")
    			looks very similar to a character read "na" that 
    			means "greens" or "vegetables". A similar, and more
    			glaring error was made with the reading of Gan's
    			surname (more on that later). In Project Justice,
    			this error is corrected.

    Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	80-58-80 (cm)
    Nationality:		Japanese
    Relationship: 		Member of Taiyou's newspaper staff; she met Kyosuke
    			through his work in the newspaper
    Home Life: 		N/A
    Likes: 			"Scoops", photographs
    Dislikes:  		Unfairness, unreasonable things, talking about her
    			own romantic endeavors
    Special Talent: 	Snapping a shot for a scoop, sneaking up on people
    			(she plans this herself)
    Best Subject(s):	Japanese language, art
    Worst Subject(s):  	Math, home economics
    Club:  			Newspaper club
    Part-Time Job: 		She doesn't particularly have one; occasionally she
    			goes out hunting for scoops and takes pictures.
    			(She hasn't used any of them yet, though...)
    Personality: 		A spirited girl, very much in the same vein as Batsu
    			and Hayato. She has a high aim to succeed, always 
    			heading toward the the top. A freshman, yet very well
    			known around Taiyou as the "Scoop Girl". She's often
    			seen sneaking around looking for the juiciest story
    			or anything that might look interesting.
    Story: 			"Taiyou Gakuen's First Prize Scoop" is a very influ-
    			ential prize; the freshman Ran, of the newspaper club,
     			won't give up on the prize this year, and she tries
    			for it with all her might. "Danger of the Rapidly 
    			Disappearing Students?! That's It!" Ran begins her
    			search for the scoop, the threat of the rapid
    Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
    			Story:  Belongs to the newspaper club. Always walking
    			around the school with camera in hand, collecting
    			"scoops". Now, along with Iinchou (Chairperson), and
    			Boman, who is investigating the Tai-P incident, she
    			sets out on her new mission: "SUPER SPECIAL INSIDE
    			STORY! Aiming for a scoop!
    What You Didn't See:	Ran's first appearance was in Shiritsu Justice
    			Gakuen: Nekketsu Seishun Nikki 2, sort of officially
    			placing her in the first game's storyline. However,
    			unless they were ardent fans, US players didn't see
    			Ran until Project Justice. It seems that Ran's sneak-
    			iness bristles with Batsu's straightforward antics
    			on more than one occasion.

    Full Name: 		"Iinchou" ("Chairperson")
    Sex:  			Female

    Three Sizes (B-W-H): 	80-58-79 (cm)
    Nationality:		Japanese
    Family:  		Two working parents, a brother 3 years younger, and
             		a sister 7 years younger
    Likes:   		Teamwork, cooperative unity, her jersey
    Dislikes: 		Teasing someone so they feel left out, spirit photos
    Special Talents: 	Trying her best, being careful, taking the initiative
    Best Subject: 		Japanese (Language/Literature class)
    Worst Subject: 		Physical Education
    Club: 			Welcome Club
    Part-Time Job: 		She doesn't have one, but she's sometimes asked to
    			help in her neighborhood's shopping district.
    Personality:		She's adored by everyone in the class; a truly
    			level-headed individual. Her popularity is so deep
    			that not only girls, but boys as well acknowledge
    			her position. She is both responsible and well-
    			behaved, but not too skilled in sports and hand-
    			to hand fighting; a normal girl. In front of every-
    			one she seems quite calm and level-headed, but alone
    			she becomes quite timid.
    Story:			To investigate what caused the uproar at the Tai-P
    			event, she joins Boman of Pacific High School. Along
    			the way, she joins up with Kyosuke and Hinata in 
    			place of Batsu, who has turned up missing.
    What You Didn't See:	Iinchou's real name is not ever given in any of the
    			games. She made her first appearance in Hinata's
    			"good" ending in the first Rival Schools, and then
    			took a more prominent (yet non-playable) role in
    			Nekketsu Seishun Nikki 2. When entering school for
    			the first time she says, "I'm the class chairperson
    			(iinchou), just call me 'Iinchou'".

    Part-Time Job: 		None (Teachers are prohibited to have part-time jobs)
    Personality: 		Taiyou Gakuen's number one lady killer;  as hot-
    			blooded as his name implies. He developed his own
    			sense of justice. Corporal punishment was also one 
    			of his own ideas. His students draw a ferocious, 
    			inescapable, unstoppable force from Hayato's own
    			sense of justice.  
    Story: 			When his students at Taiyou were attacked, Hayato 
    			became suspicious of the elite academy, Justice
    			Gakuen. He joins Batsu, Hinata, and Kyosuke in the
    			fight, watching over them.
    Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
    			Story: Hayato is Taiyou's hot-blooded P.E. 
    			instructor. At first he set out to investigate the
    			riot at the Tai-P event, but later joined up with
    			Hideo and company to investigate the attack on
    			Raizo. This time, there's something strange in the
    			air, behind the scenes as he investigates with them. 
    What You Didn't See:	Sometimes, it's pretty obvious that Hayato is 
    			infatuated with Kyoko (of Justice Gakuen), despite
    			her connection to Hideo; he makes open reference to
    			her being attractive in his "good" ending in Rival
    			Schools. A case of unrequited love?
    		-=Gorin Koukou "School of Advanced Sports"=-
    Gorin is a private school that was established to produce the sporting elite.
    Their educational objective, stated quite clearly, is "a healthy mind, a
    strong body, and Olympian training". There are about 900 students in the 
    middle school, and 1800 in the high school.
    The Gorin School is an integrated, 6-grade middle and high school whose
    central characteristic is cultivating the health of its youth through sports,
    while putting "a healthy mind, a strong body, and Olympian training" in the
    minds of their students. Because they place sports as a priority, athletic
    ability and character decide who enters the school, not the rate of devi-
    ation from the entrance exam. There are a lot of people who enter the high
    school via scouts that search for outstanding talents scattered all over the
    nation that had exhibited national-level athleticism in junior high, and
    bring said students in. 
    Profile: By name, this school is known for being extraordinarily successful
    in sporting events. A high school of mutual interest within a group of
    students with highly athletic ability drawn from all over the country to win
    championships. Outside of sports, Gorin is always looking at Gedou Koukou
    with hostility.

    			can hear Roy say them). Of particular amusement

    Gedou Koukou (High School) is located beside an industrial area on a large
    mouth of a river. The school's motto is "gang morals and perseverence", and

    severe. Gedou is an all-male school at which there are 320 freshmen, 160
    juniors, and 80 seniors, a very strange inclination.
    At one time, Gedou was a fine school that divided the time between studies 
    and martial arts equally for the purpose of raising fine Japanese men. Now,
    it has changed into an institution that uses "lessons that drill the mind"
    to raise "people who don't drift from the way of the people" (i.e. a 
    "correctional" facility). Both schools were positioned adjacent to the 
    industrial area; a long time ago, the quality of students was fine, but the
    number of entering students has gone down with the industrial area, which
    is growing obsolete and continuing to decline.

    			doesn't understand it, but repeating historical
    			events makes him sick)
    Club: 			None
    			(on the flip side, he's a member of the Darkside
    			 Student Council)
    Part-Time Job: 		Because he's making secret plans, he's too busy to
    			have one
    Story:			Belongs to the Justice Gakuen Student Council. On
    			the outside, he looks just like any other student,
    			but he's really been sent from "reverse society"
    			to destroy the Imawano clan as an assassin. Along
    			with his (older) sister Yurika, and Momo, he has
    			organized the Darkside Student Council. Now he
    			has bared his fangs to the "reverse society" that
    			is using him, using the opportunity to formulate
    			a plan to take over Japan; he's now an assassin
    			gone mad.

    			Sakura got where she is today because generally,
    			she tries her hand at athletic clubs, but since
    			her interests change with the weather, she doesn't
    			stay in a single club very long.                        	
    Part-Time Job:		Inexperienced (She once was going to work at a 
    			supermarket, but she wished to work in the stock
    			room rather than work the cash registers)
    Personality:  		A high school girl who trains all day and all night
    			in the art of hand-to-hand fighting just so that 
    			she can meet "that person". She's always full of
    			energy, cheerful, and unaffected; she can never
    			settle down. She loves to give her body a good
    			workout, but now she's in a street-fighting haze.
    			Her fighting sense is a truly special, natural
    			gift, and it seems the techniques she uses now
    			are imitations of what she has seen in her
    Story: 			When she hears that her close friends (naturally,
    			Hinata and Natsu) have gone off to fight some 
    			great evil, Sakura gets her hopes up, thinking, 
    			"Maybe there'll be strong people fighting there..."
    			With that thought in mind, Sakura runs off to
    			give her friends some support. "It'll be great
    			training for when I meet 'him'," Sakura says;
    			it doesn't seem her motives are quite as sincere
    			as they should be...

    V. 0.3: Lots of new info in this version. The English version translated Gan's 
    last name as "Sekidou" and Hinata's as "Wakana"... what in the name of
    Tiffany's non-existent pants is that? Well... a new one is coming soon, when
    more complete info on Sakura, Hyo, Raizo, Hayato, and Daigo become available.
    See you then! --Batsu
    V. 1.0: FINALLY!! Stories/info for Hayato, Daigo, Raizo, Hyo, and a little on 
    Natsu and Sakura. I think this will be the final update. See you in June when 
    Evolution 2 comes out! They should put Karin Kanzuki in that game, darn it.
    V. 1.1: Seems that they had even more info than I thought. Who would have known 
    Gan would have a family as big as he is! See you next time! --Batsu
    V. 1.2:  Nekketsu Seishunnikki 2! Great game, but later for that lockout code. 
    The new characters Ran and Nagare are cool, but where the heck is Karin? There 
    are a lot of new characters with names (Batsu's mother Shizuku, Sayuri, Mari,
    and other background characters show up, but the "Iinchou" (committee leader,
    wearing Hayato's jacket)... she doesn't have a name! Hmm...what a waste! See
    you next time!) --Batsu
    V. 1.3: No really new info, but since those wonderful (sarcasm) people at AOL 
    finally allowed full-time use of those long SNs, I changed my E-Mail address
    to batsuichimonji@aol.com. Sorry for the inconvenience!
    V. 1.4: Well, this is another small update. Nothing too much to add. I wonder
    if there will be a domestic version produced of Seishunnikki 2... if they ever
    got around the simulation mode like they did with the other game, the game
    would just be seen as a rehash of the first fighting game with minor additions. 
    Well...we'll see what Capcom is up to! Latez!
    V. 1.5: Now that Project Justice is behind us, and I have gained more sources
    from which to update this document, including the following:
    Gamest EX Series Mook No. 59: Shiritsu Justice Gakuen Kakutou Sankousho
    			      (Fighting Reference Book)
    Dorimaga Books/SOFT BANK Moero! Justice Gakuen Perfect Guide
    CAPCOM Japan's Shiritsu Justice Gakuen and Moero! Justice Gakuen web sites
     This may very well be the final update. -- The Doc
