____________________________Introduction______________________________________

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
shores.

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
around. 

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 
shadowed...

	[Batsu Ichimonji "The Hot Blooded Transfer Student"]

Sex: 			Male
Birthdate:  		January 1 
Zodiac: 		Capricorn
Blood Type: 		O
Height: 		171 cm
Weight: 		64 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	95-72-80 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship:  		??? 
			(to a certain group of you out there: NOT Natsu!)
			(actually the son of Raizo, Justice Gakuen principal)
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
Best Subject(s): 	Physical education
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
			mother.
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.  

			(About Burning Batsu)

			Nickname: "The Super Hot-Blooded Transfer Student"

			Story: Having gone under his father Raizo's harsh
			training, Batsu takes new techniques into himself.
			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".
 	

		[Kyousuke (Kyosuke) Kagami "The Mysterious Public Man"]

Sex: 			Male
Birthdate: 		April 4
Zodiac: 		Aries
Blood Type: 		B
Height: 		182 cm
Weight: 		66 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H): 	95-75-79 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship:  		???
			(actually twin brother to Hyo Imawano)

			at one about 30 minutes each day)
Dislikes: 		Sweat, hard work
Special Talent: 	Calligraphy, flower arrangement
Best Subject(s):  	Math, science
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
			game ending photo, where he holds up a saxophone
			in front of the bonfire.


		[Hinata Wakaba "Stormy Highschool Girl"]

Sex: 			Female
Birthdate:  		April 12
Zodiac: 		Aries
Blood Type: 		O
Height: 		155 cm
Weight: 		41 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	78-56-78 (cm)
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.

		[Ran Hibiki "Scoop Girl"]

Sex: 			Female
Birthdate: 		June 1
Zodiac: 		Gemini
Blood Type: 		O
Height: 		163 cm
Weight:  		47 kg
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
			disappearances...
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.

		[Iinchou (Chairperson) "The Mainstay Of The Class"]

Full Name: 		"Iinchou" ("Chairperson")
Sex:  			Female
Birthdate: 		May 9
Zodiac:			Taurus
Blood Type: 		A
Height: 		154 cm
Weight: 		?? kg
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'".



		[Nekketsu Hayato "The Burning Red Jersey"]

Sex: 			Male
Birthdate:  		August 15
Zodiac: 		Leo
Blood Type: 		O
Height: 		191 cm
Weight:  		80 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	111-89-92 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship: 		None
Home Life: 		N/A
Likes: 			Bright red jerseys, fighting spirit, sexy and nice
			women
Dislikes:  		Disregarding manners, things his parents didn't find
			important
Special Talent: 	Slapping things down with the shinai (bamboo fencing
			stick), putting in fighting spirit
Best Subject(s): 	Physical education
WorstSubject(s):  	Puzzling subjects
Club:  			None
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.

		[Shouma (Shoma) Sawamura "Explosive Slugger"]

Sex: 			Male 
Birthdate: 		October 10
Zodiac: 		Libra
Blood Type: 		O
Height: 		162 cm
Weight: 		57 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	92-78-80 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship: 		Argues with Natsu (but he secretly likes her)
Home Life: 		Shoma lives with both his parents, his brother
			Shuuichi (3rd year/senior at Gorin), and his
			(paternal) grandfather; Shoma's father sent Shuu-
			ichi to train at Yakyuu (Baseball) Sparta 
			(apparently a rigid baseball camp) 
Likes: 			Pro baseball, baseball video games
Dislikes: 		Big and strong people, basketball, volleyball
Special Talent:  	Baseball (Big surprise, isn't it?)
Best Subject(s): 	Physical education
Worst Subject(s):  	Music, English
Club: 			Baseball club
Part-Time Job:  	No time for that!
Personality:  		Has a quick temper and hates to lose.  Has a strong
			sense of justice, but because he's so impulsive, 
			he's always at a loss of what he tries to do. Because
			he causes wild fights during games, he's estab-
			lished himself as a regular member of the club
			by no particular means necessary.  He's extremely
			self-conscious about his height; he always fights
			with Natsu, who is tall and tries to make a fool of
			him. He throws the fight right back at her, but she
			always turns it around.  It turns out Natsu was an
			old friend from childhood, and now that she's 
			growing up and becoming more of a woman, her casual,
			less combative actions have caused a lot of
			tension...
Story:   		His older brother, an ace pitcher from the same
			school, Shuuichi, was attacked by someone.  To clear
			his brother's humiliation of being cut off from
			turning pro, to find out the truth, and for revenge, 
			Shoma goes to raid other schools.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)

			Story:  A member of Gorin's baseball club. He has 
			moved up to the starting lineup on the baseball team.
			His next aim is to become a regular while training 
			hard. Now that he's come to the rescue after someone
			attacked Momo, his friendship with Natsu is breaking
			apart...

What You Didn't See:	The early romanization of his name on the US arcade
			version of Rival Schools had his name spelled 
			"Syoma", which is techinically correct, but not a
			romanization that is used very much today. Shoma's
			birthday is strategically placed on a Japanese 
			national holiday, National Sports Day.
 		
		[Natsu Ayuhara "Powerful Attacker"]

Sex: 			Female
Birthdate: 		February 14 
Zodiac: 		Aquarius
Blood Type: 		B
Height: 		182 cm
Weight: 		?? kg 
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	92-59-83 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship: 		Childhood friends with Hinata, argues with Shoma
			(she secretly likes him)
Home Life: 		Natsu lives with both her parents, and an older
			brother, Shun (a first year college student); Natsu's
			father is a former national superintendent. 
Likes: 			Cake, Effortful people 
Dislikes: 		People that bully the weak, liars, little bugs
Special Talent: 	Cooking, making sweets
Best Subject(s): 	Home economics, physical education, Japanese, English
Worst Subject(s): 	Art
Club: 			Volleyball club
Part Time Job: 		None
Personality:  		Natsu is a smart, outspoken "big sister" type with a
			winning spirit.  With her sharp-edged personality, 
			she hates people that bully the weak, lies, and 
			insects.  She's tall, and her strong-minded,
			"mannish" personality just might be the ruin of her.
			Every day, her shoebox becomes more and more full
			with love letters from other girls. On the other
			hand, since she scares away all the guys at school,
			Natsu's grateful to know a guy who doesn't hesitate
			to fight with her everyday like Shoma.  Although
			her boyish qualities stand out, she also has a cute
			side that yearns for romance, and a womanly side
			that shows that she an excellent cook.
Story:  		At Gorin High, each club's highest-ranking member
			was attacked in a series of coinciding events. Natsu
			and two others that go to the same school as she, 
			Shoma and Roberto, got together and discussed it all,
			then set out as a team of three to find the cause of
			their investigation.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
			
			Story: A member of Gorin High's volleyball club. 
			Though Shoma is an old childhood friend, lately she
			is beginning to regard him as a member of the 
			opposite sex. Though she's been fighting with Shoma
			over the entrance of Momo between them, she is, in
			actuality, worried about him.

What You Didn't See:	In Natsu's "good" ending in Rival Schools, the 
			localizers eschewed one very important point at 
			which Shoma teases Natsu. Because he knows that
			the boyish Natsu is the object of longing for a few
			"curious" middle school students, Shoma tells Natsu
			to stop hitting on (as in "flirting with") them in
			front of the school. In the US localized version,
			Shoma tells Natsu to stop beating them up. (I guess
			that's still "hitting" on them...)

Personality: 		A student that's quarter-Brazilian (his nationality

			he plays an inside role of watching over the other
			two.  Every time the other two argue, Roberto makes
			it a daily routine to turn around and shrug his
			shoulders.  He's usually cool, but when he gets in
			soccer match, he becomes one hot-blooded jerk. If 
			he's making the deciding shot, he puts his whole
			body into it, expressing the joy that's sure to
			follow.
Story: 			Natsu and Shoma's uneasy combination is on the hunt
			for criminals. However, so the two don't run around
			wildly, he looks over them. He is worried that this
			action might hinder his chances of becoming a pro-
			fessional soccer player.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
			
			Story:	A member of Gorin High's soccer club; it's 
			said that he takes the role of watching over Shoma
			and Natsu. After she gets into a fight with Shoma,
			Roberto goes along with Natsu.

What You Didn't See:	Roberto's name is actually written given name first,
			surname last in Japanese, the Western way, instead
			of the usual way in Japan.

Personality:		Just as she looks, she's a mischievous little girl.

Story:			A new entrant to Gorin High School. A member of

		-= Gorin Daigaku (University) =-

This year marks the establishment of Gorin's college-level section. Because
the other P.E.-centered colleges' facilities were overwhelmed with the number
of college-bound graduates from Gorin, a college where each sport and the
people concerned were collected in one central location was created. Just 
like Gorin High School, Gorin University seeks to produce the greatest 
athletes, as well as sporting doctors and trainers. With the addition of a
sports medicine club and a physiology club, Gorin University is going for
the complete sporting educational experience.

Three Sizes (B-W-H): 	108-88-95 (cm)
Nationality:		Japanese
Relationship:  		Member of the Gorin Swimming Club, a childhood 
			neighborhood friend of Shoma and Shuuichi
Home Life: 		N/A
Likes: 			Swimming, oceans, rivers
Dislikes: 		Caterpillars, crooked things
Special Talent: 	Swimming, just about anything that has to do with
			water
Subject(s) Good At: 	Physical education (swimming, water polo)
Subject(s) Bad At:  	Subjects that don't have anything to do with water
			or the ocean
Club: 			Swimming club (Ace)
Part-Time Job: 		None 
Personality: 		(As a third year student at Gorin High)
			Very serious Gorin senior; doesn't speak very much.
			Since childhood, Nagare has been friends with Shoma
			and Shuuichi, Shoma regards him as an older brother.
			As expected, the swim team's ace loves the water and
			just about everything related to it; he excels in
			all water sports, but when he's out of the water,
			he's lost.
Story: 			"Who attacked Shuuichi?" As Shoma jumps in to get 
			revenge on those who attacked his brother, Nagare
			joins in to lend a helping hand. When Shuuichi is 
			found badly injured, Nagare worries alongside his
			"little brother" Shoma.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
			
			Personality:  He's silent, and because his talents
			are limited outside of the water so that he seems
			absent-minded, at first glance it doesn't seem that
			he's thinking about anything; to friends, and those
			with whom he's concerned, he's a good-natured person
			who lends a helping hand. When he gets in the water,
			he becomes a totally different, sharp-minded person. 
			
			Story: Member of Gorin University's swim team. Out
			of the bounds of Gorin High School, now he has 
			returned to Gorin High as a swimming coach. By
			chance, when he returned to Gorin, he joined up
			with Roberto and company and all of them set out
			together.  

What You Didn't See:	Nagare entered the Justice Gakuen world as a third-
			year student at Gorin in Nekketsu Seishun Nikki 2.
			Since the official sequel pushed the characters up
			one school year, Gorin University was established
			to keep Nagare in the playing field. 


	-=Pacific High School "High Class American School"=-

Pacific High School sits in a harbor town next to high-rise western living
quarters. It is also near a US military base. The school's educational 
objective is to "circulate elite education through the world through culture
and sports". It possesses a small student body of about 500.

As mentioned before, this school was established in order to "circulate 
elite education through the world using culture and sports". Pacific's 
most outstanding feature is the number of high-class Americans living in
Japan. There are many children of ambassadors, elite military officers,
politicians and high-profile figures, bringing tradition and social 
status to this high school.  

Profile: Full of good Americans raised in domestic American schools.  Said to 
have many children of prominent Americans studying as exchange students.

Weight: 		85 kg
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	122-82-88 (cm)
Nationality:		U.S.A.
Relationship:  		???
Home Life: 		Lives alone in his father's holiday villa (at home
			in America, he lives with both his parents, and
			has two older sisters)
Likes: 			Fashion, high-class brands
Dislikes: 		Japan, Japanese people, cowardly, foul things
Special Talent: 	Arm wrestling (Boman is a good rival)
Best Subject(s): 	Anything
Worst Subject(s):  	Nothing
Club:  			Football
Part-Time Job:  	No need to work, his family is wealthy
Personality: 		As the star quarterback of a unbeatable American
			football team, he's the guy all the students want
			to be. Though he's capricious, and just a little
			less than serious. To make matters worse, he tries
			more than anyone else to look sharp. Though, if one
			looks through all of that, one will find a real frank
			and basic side to him that really hates cowardice. 
			Because he was repeatedly told about how his 
			grandfather lost his leg in the Pacific War (World
			War II) since he was little, Roy despises most 
			things Japanese.
Story: 			Because his father is working to make Roy become a
			diplomat, he makes Roy transfer to Japan at Pacific
			High School unwillingly. However, Roy has yet to
			like being in Japan, and from his uneasy placement
			there, he gets a request from his father to check
			out the disturbing goings on at Justice Gakuen.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
			
			Story: An American who serves as Batsu's rival.
			Last time around, he ended his overseas studies and
			went back home to America. This time around, he has
			come to help Boman and the others against Kurou's
			conspiracy schemes.

What You Didn't See:	The half-hearted localization of Rival Schools gave 
			one the impression that Roy didn't like living in 
			Japan, but since they didn't even call Japan by name
			(they called it Batsu's country), they tiptoed over
			the things he says in that game. While he doesn't
			say anything really offensive (save the kana-ized
			word "Japanese", which isn't a nice way to refer
			to Japanese people when you speak their language),
			the things he does say is highly rude (ex. "So
			what's a Japanese person like you gonna do about
			it?"). Roy also says a few expletives in English
			that are written in English that of course had
			to be removed when translated (However, the 
			Japanese voiceovers were retained, and a keen ear
			can hear Roy say them). Of particular amusement
			was when one can clearly hear Roy call Hideo a
			"Japanese Businessman" in English, but the 
			translators wrote that phrase as "geek"! (Just what
			are they trying to say?) In Project Justice, it 
			seems that Roy has gotten over his hate of Japan
			and its people, and there was no need to water down
			any of the things he said.

Weight:	 		?? kg 
Three Sizes (B-W-H):  	93-56-86 (cm)
Nationality:		U.S.A.
Relationship:  		She has been in love with Roy ever since she came
			to Japan (her love is as of yet still unrequited)
Home Life: 		Lives alone in the Pacific High dorms (Because she
			has a lot of money, it's a single, plush room
			complete with air conditioning, a heating system,
			and catered meals)
Likes: 			Roy, dancing, her family, ice cream
Dislikes: 		Nattou (fermented soybeans)
Special Talent: 	Exciting displays of affection 
			(I wouldn't call -that- a special talent...)
Best Subject(s): 	Music, physical education
Worst Subject(s): 	Japanese 
Club: 			Cheerleader
Part-Time Job:  	Tiffany has the looks, and her family has the money.
			She has no desire to work, and probably never will.
Personality: 		She's proud that everyone recognizes her beautiful 
			face.  A cheerful and bubbly (bubble headed)
			"American funky girl". Her present interests are 
			fashion and love, and she doesn't miss the chance to
			go to the dance club on weekends.  Because she always
			in a haze and playing around, she doesn't have
			thoughts of the future in her head at all. On a more
			positive side, she has a cute side that misses her
			parents in America, who never miss the chance to send
			her presents or call her on the phone.  Before they
			were sent overseas, Roy and Tiffany went to the same
			school; since she has come to Japan, she fell deeply
			in love with him.  She recalls something bothering 
			Roy, who usually isn't easily disturbed.
Story: 			Tiffany joined Roy in the investigation of Justice 
			Gakuen Roy's father ordered, in hopes that Roy will
			somehow turn around (to face her).
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen notes)
			
			Story: Member of the cheerleading team. Though she
			went back to America with Roy earlier, she has come
			back to help Boman and the others.

What You Didn't See:	Tiffany is a case of when localization/translation
			is impossible. It's easy to portray her as an 
			airhead, but the true humor of Tiffany's character
			is the glaring gaffes she makes when speaking the
			Japanese language. Tiffany stereotypically uses 
			"Mii" ("Me") as a first person pronoun, a standard
			way of characterizing English speakers who can't
			speak Japanese very well, and she also drags out
			the pronunciation of certain sounds, sounding a
			bit more accurately like one just learning to 
			speak Japanese. Her most hilarious trait is the 
			incredible foul-ups she makes while using common 
			Japanese phrases; often Boman will be there to 
			correct her. For example, she says "Hyoushiki 
			utagachau" ("You've lost a road sign") when she
			means to say "Joushiki utagachau" ("You've lost
			your common sense").  This sort of thing is 
			nearly impossible to translate without a few foot-
			notes.

Story:  		As Roy and Tiffany go to investigate Justice Gakuen, 
			Bowman joins in to watch over those two.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)

			Story:  Since Roy and Tiffany have left Pacific High, 
			Boman has struggled to protect the school. Now, in

What You Didn't See:	In Moero! Justice Gakuen, Boman was one of two

	-=Gedou Koukou "Collecting the Nation's Worst"=-

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
its objective is "one person will force a lot of graduations"; it's quite
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.

Profile:  Collecting notorious bad guys from all over Japan, the school goes 
through a lot of excruciating ups and downs. Until now, Akira's brother has 
drawn the line between them. Gedou clearly has a serious rivalry with Gorin
Koukou.

			older sister (both upstanding socialites)
Likes: 			Army Knives
Dislikes: 		His real name, Seriously hard work
Best Subject(s): 	Nothing
Worst Subject(s): 	Everything, especially math
Club: 			No club (juvenile delinquents don't belong to any)
Part-time Job:  	He has tried several (video store, coffee shops), 
			but none of them ever worked out.  He is currently
			jobless.
Special Talent: 	Knife throwing, attacks with dangerous weapons,
			verbal attacks
Personality: 		Edge's personality can be described in one phrase:
			"irresponsible and unfair".  No matter how he looks
			toward his opponents, he's got an army knife waiting
			for them without them knowing about it; hence his 
			popular nickname "Army Knife's Edge".  If his clothes
			get wrinkled a little, he has a habit of grabbing his
			collar or chest area and fixing it afterward.  Edge
			hates his given name, and if you call him by his real
			name he gets mad.
Story: 			Ever since the "boss of Gedou" Daigo disappeared, 
			Edge leans a spying ear to the other schools in pur-
			suit of his whereabouts.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)

			Nickname: "Cut-Up Gang Leader"
			Story: A cowardly, super delinquent. Someway, somehow
			Edge has made it to the junior class (2nd year). 
			Without Akira or Daigo around, he's starting to feel
			rather bored. This time around, as the returning
			Daigo gives orders to raid other schools, Daigo's
			(too-)extreme words and conduct are inviting a lot 
			of mistrust and suspicion on Edge's end.

Likes: 			Rice balls
Dislikes: 		Studying
Special Talent: 	Sumo, eating a lot, eating fast
Best Subject(s):  	Physical education
Worst Subject(s):  	Almost anything except physical education
Club: 			Although he offically belongs to the sumo club, he
			never attends it
Part-time Job: 		Sometimes he does one-day jobs that require physical
			strength (road construction, moving company, etc.) 
Personality:  		Possessing immense physical might, Gan's only boast is
			his strength in fights. He doesn't have a grasp on
			even the most basic things, and he'll believe just
			about anything. In fact, if someone sneaky tried to
			take advantage of Gan, he'd still draw not much more
			than a blank from the big guy; Gan's a dunce of a
			character. More than anything else, Gan looks forward
			to having three meals a day. At every meal, he has no
			less than a mountain-sized helping of rice stacked
			five times over in a bowl.
Story:  		Because Daigo, the "boss" to all the gangs at Gedo,
			disappeared, Akira (who Gan believes is Daigo's
			little brother) suggested a conference about the
			search for the missing students; Gan joined in too,
			and went on to play a part in the search.
Addendum:		(Moero! Justice Gakuen Notes)
			
			Story: A fun-loving giant of a delinquent. He loves
			onigiri (hand-rolled sushi) and is an "absentee"
			member of the sumo club. Just like Edge, he serves
			as a top henchman to Daigo as they raid other 
			schools.

What You Didn't See:	Is his last name "Sekidou"? Is it "Isurugi"? The 
			answer is the latter. Just as they had done with 
			Hinata, CAPCOM's localization team, working at half-
			mast used a more common reading for Gan's surname
			given the characters used to write it. "Isurugi"
			is a rather uncommon reading for the characters,
			yet CAPCOM Japan's Justice Gakuen website had Gan's
			surname clearly written out in hiragana to point
			out its correct reading. Talk about miscommuni-
			cation...

			morals. He possesses a magnetic charisma.  He never
			fights unfairly (certainly, he doesn't condone two-

			his younger sister; his existence is one where a 
			man of his standing usually falls.
Story:  		When the kidnappings perpetrated by Justice Gakuen
			had started, Daigo, aware of the worries that arose
			because of them, set out to face Justice Gakuen in
			search of the truth behind it all. There was no
			way that Daigo could have known that at that time,

			Story: The undisputed boss of all gangs at Gedou.
			Akira's older brother, who, last time around, was

		-= Seijun Jogakuin (Girls' Institute)  =-

A high school centered at a certain zaibatsu (financial clique), established
with the intent to "raise women who display feminine virtues and the time-
honored traditions of Japan within themselves". Such is Seijun's educational
objective as well; many students who enter Seijun come from well-known, well-
to-do families. In a time where the freedom of students in their schooling
is prized, it's said that numerous Seijun school regulations are well behind
the times. (In the first place, because those students who break the rules 
don't come to school, you don't hear anyone who is against the regulations
ever speaking up.)

Barring a few exceptions, basically everyone lives in the dormitories. The
school was built on a small island on a beautiful lake. Except on summer
vacation, winter vacation, and end of the year/New Year's homecoming, the
principal is very throrough in requiring students to have permission to
leave the campus.

Story:			A gang member and Akira's classmate. She lends a 
			hand to Akira in order to investigate Daigo's ab-
			normal behavior. Along the way, she hears a rumor
			that Gedou Koukou, under Daigo's command is going

			friends from junior high school, a "Ladies Team"

			popularity.


		-=Justice Gakuen "Super Elite High School"=-

The school's motto is "A sound mind and body build excellent abilities". 
Because the lessons are geared to change the content of one's personal
ability, the classes are divided according to such ability from A to J, a 
total of 10 classes (they keep increasing to the point that they form
a few small pyramids). Justice is a boarding school where students are not
permitted to return to their homes until graduation. At the dormitories,
a student's study schedule is determined, and an orderly lifestyle follows. 

Profile:  A private institution built to nurture the elite that should change 
Japan.  Talented students from all around Japan are admitted.  There's a rumor 
that some of them were kidnapped to secure their admission...

Story: 			As Raizo had feared, as the effects of the Ima-
			wano family's special training methods had crea-
			ted many a top-notch talent at his academy (Just-
			ice) and the academy had gotten all the more
			famous, opposition from the Imawano family to
			the public release of the teaching methods Raizo
			had been the only child to inherit was high, and
			his life was targeted. In addition to this, just
			to drive the nail into the coffin, the Imawano
			clan pressured Raizo mentally because of their
			opposition to his plans to give his own child extra
			special education, usually reserved for gifted
			students. Because of this, Raizo hid himself
			from both his wife and very young son. However,
			Raizo was never free from his sadness. Afterward,
			he did nothing but keep on, for the sake of the
			academy. Gradually, his family's opposition came
			to an end, and one day, as Raizo was making his
			rounds at the academy, he noticed a student both
			scholarly and physically strong, with outstanding
			grades. His name was Hyo, and the students were
			well aware of his abilities and popularity. Since
			his wife and son have disappeared, Raizo, who
			forgot all about his plan of succession decided

			Because he had put so much work into the academy,
			Raizo's body was already beginning to lose its

			leaving the academy in Hyo's hands. In actuality,
			Hyo is an illegitimate child of the Imawano clan.
			He has, at the behest of some family members,

Best Subject(s): 	Anything
Worst Subject(s): 	Nothing
Club: 			Head of Student Council (Not a club, but..)
Part-Time Job:  	He doesn't do such "poor, mundane" things
Personality:		Cold and cruel. To reach his goals, he'll do any-
			thing. His aggressive personality is based on
			that of his father, Mugen Imawano. He controls 
			other people with with his powerful brainwashing
			techniques, but Hyo is unaware that since he
			was a small child, he has been brainwashed by
			his father; he has a "father complex".
Story:			Hyo uses his abilities, which surpass those of 
			everyone else at Justice Gakuen, and his charisma
			as a weapon to turn all the academy's students into
			his own personal followers. One time, Raizo went
			overseas to inspect a high school at which he had
			planned to make a joint venture with Justice. Hyo
			used this opportunity to put a plan he had been
			warming up into motion. He brainwashed those of the
			best mind and body at schools everywhere in one fell
			swoop and brought them into his own personal army.
			Three months later, Raizo returned home to find a
			drastically changed academy, with a fanatic cult
			that worshipped Hyo as its master. It was hopeless
			for Raizo, who easily fell to Hyo's brainwashing.
			Hyo's ambition was nearly coming to perfect fruition;
			however, he had found yet one more obstacle. Word 
			that Raizo's wife and son, long said to be dead, were
			still living had surfaced. With the blood of Raizo,
			ninja's blood continuing the family line and thus
			being the rightful heir to Raizo's inheritance, this
			could pose a trouble not even Hyo could handle. Hyo
			then decides to kidnap Raizo's wife Shizuku, so that
			he can lure his son, Batsu Ichimonji out of hiding
			and into his grasp.

What You Didn't See: 	Hyo's voice actor, Kaneto Shiozawa (a man of many
			famous roles, and somewhat of a "niche" player) passed
			away at the age of 46, during the production of Moero!
			Justice Gakuen/Project Justice, coincidentally as
			the character he portrayed also did the same.

Club:			None (Go-Home Club)

Part-Time Job:		Inexperienced (She once was going to work at a

----------------------------------End Notes----------------------------------- 

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.
--Batsu

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:
