1. General FAQ info
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.1 Introduction

	Hello, and welcome to this FAQ. This is on the game called Tokimeki
	Memorial of which by reading this FAQ, you ought to know something
	about it right now. One important thing you should know is that,
	this FAQ is based on the Super Famicom version of the game. And will
	feature the usual stuff found in the other FAQ's but in much more
	detail. Think of this FAQ as a supplementary reference guide. And
	please understand that whats being presented in this FAQ may not
	apply to the other platforms.

	And if you simply want to win. A part of this FAQ ( section 16 )
	details an almost step-by-step guide on building stats. ( high stats
	will mean easy going for the rest of the game )

	And since were dealing with a fairly old game. And a couple of FAQ's
	have already been released on this game ( excellent ones at that )
	And by reading this one, I'm assuming the reader already knows the
	basics. Or simply put : not a complete stranger to the game. So
	this FAQ will more or less start out with stuff that new players
	couldn't care less about. And if you're a complete beginner, check
	out section's 4 and below first.

	Yes, I can understand a bit of Japanese ( with help from a Kanji
	dictionary :) ) And no, I don't enjoy translating huge amounts of
	kanji. So don't ask for dialogue translations or something of that
	nature.

	Yes, this is an OLD game.

	And yes, I'm fully aware that in this day and age, nobody plays the
	Super Famicom and Super Nintendo unless they REALLY want to. And as
	such, I half-expect those reading this FAQ are playing the PS, Saturn
	, PC-Engine Super CD, or the Win95 version. So ? .... Read the other
	FAQ's first and read this LAST.

	And lastly, this FAQ was created entirely in Wordpad which, quite
	unfortunately, is due to the file size. This is already been tested with
	Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.2. With an environment of 800 x 600.
	The entire page gets displayed on Wordpad, but some of the text gets
	clipped at the right edge of the window when viewed with IE 3.2.
	Forcing you to use the bottom scrollbar to view the remaining text.
	A minor nuisance really. Sorry.

	Also, most of the right side of this FAQ gets clipped when viewed
	with MS-DOS EDIT. So don't even bother.

1.2 Version history

	Beta stage. ( non-public release )

	1 - creation of this FAQ.
	1.1 - added section 1 plus the Legal section and the special mentions.
	1.2 - added section 4, 5, 6.
	1.5 - completed section 5. Added sections 7 to 9.
	1.6 - completed section 4.
	1.8 - completed section 6, 7 and 10
	2.5 - major revision to the layout. Added corrections. Completed
			section 8 partially completed sections 3, 9, 11, 12, and
			13. Plus further additions to section 1. Various corrections.
	2.6 - Added sections 14,15,16
	2.8 - Completed section 14 and 15. Partially completed section 16. Various
			corrections and various additions. Reached 100k file size.
	2.9 - Completed section 11. Additions to section 1 and 15.
	3.0 - Entire document edited for any errors and corrections. Submitted to
			like minded friends for " debugging " and additional input.

	Public release

	1.0 - so far so good.

1.3 Differences between the Super Famicom version and the other versions
	( or reasons why you should play the 32-bit versions in the first place )

	Please note, these are based on my observations alone. I haven't
	thoroughly played the other versions. But I have personally seen
	the PS and Win95 version.

	= No voices
	= No movies
	= Graphics resolution is normal Super Famicom. Text resolution is
		at 512
	= 2 save slots
	= Minimal animation
	= Color depth around 256 colors
	= Feeble ( by todays standards ... ) FM synth tunes
	= None of the cheats for the Saturn and Playstation work ( to the
		best of my knowledge )
	= Field trip locations are changed
	= Theater and Concert events seems to be the same as the Saturn
		version ( I'm not sure )
	= Game time starts at 1996 and ends at 1999
	= Variety of mini-games not even close to the CD versions
	= A small CD ( around 1.2 inches from the core ) is supposedly included.
		Contents unknown, though its highly likely to contain the OP and EP
		songs or some bitmaps. The CD, if it exists at all, is also likely
		to be multi-platform compatible ( both Win95 and MacOS will be able
		to use the disc without difficulty, but I don't expect it run on a
		Unix or Linux-based system though :) )

1.4 Some things you need to know first ...

	- Download, save, then view it with Wordpad in a full size window. It gets
		a bit crowded when viewed with internet browsers.

	- Lookup the topics you're interested in. Don't read it straight
		from the start till the end, unless you want to kill a
		good hour or so it may seem.

		And besides, thats what the other FAQ's are for ..

		This one's more like a reference guide more than anything else.

	- Expect mispellings, it happens ...

	- I would also like to address this subject. This game is NOT a realistic
		simulation of Japanese high school life. But it does give you
		a certain idea of how their school system works. One example is on
		the amount of holidays you have, the subjects they take, etc ..

	- I'm not sure whether whats being presented here applies to the Playstation,
		Saturn, or the PC Engine Super CD version. So if some things here
		does not work on what ever CD-based system you have, tough luck.
		And no, I'm not sure on the Win95 version also.

	- This FAQ is for Tokimeki Memorial : Forever with you. Its doesn't have
		anything to do with its Tokidrama side stories, puzzle games, quiz
		games, and its arcade variants.

1.5 Whats in store for the future.

		Okay ....., If everything goes on as planned, expect to see an HTML
	version of this FAQ soon.

		visit this location if you're curious :

		http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Ginza/7814/

		At the moment this address holds only the title page. If an HTML
	version REALLY gets made, then it would be featured here. But don't expect
	it anytime soon .....

		And no, it may not be as informative and complete as this FAQ.

		And yes, I'll do some FAQ's on other similar games. I'm not sure
	when it'll be released or even be made, so we'll just hope for it.
	The Debut 21 FAQ is already started and is around 5% complete. I'll
	possibly have a FAQ made on Dream Generation, and Noel La Niege Special.
	And maybe even Refrain Love 2 if it gets released on the PS. ( don't
	have a Saturn )

		And again, don't get your hopes up too much. I'm not promising
	anything.

1.6 Whats NOT in this FAQ

		There will be NO Stadium, Concert, or Movie reference table here.
	Read the other FAQ's first.

		No gift guides for birthdays. Choose the first option. ( except
	for Shiori's first year birthday, choose the second option )

		No dialogue translations.

		No date-related special events and occurances are mentioned here.
	Read the other FAQ's for such info.

		No ending translations. Again read the other FAQ's.

2. The commands

2.8 Do some events affect stats ?

	Well, there is one I now of. Refused date offers can add around +10 on your stress.
	Seriously offending girls on after-school events can also affect Stress to a certain
	level (?)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Special statistics
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.1 Clubs ?

	Aside from doing the various normal activities such as those stated above,
	you also have the opportunity to join various school clubs as well.

	These clubs more or less, do the same effect as your normal activities.
	But they differ in 4 aspects :

				- Clubs tend to increase more points in more attributes
				- Clubs can also lead to some special events
				- Club activities decrease your Stamina like there's no
					tommorow.
				- The higher the points, the more successful you'll be

	The first difference, is that they can increase more points in more attributes.
	But they can only increase RELATED attributes. So joining the Literature Club
	will increase your academic attributes, physical attributes are seldom affected
	except for Stamina and sometimes Fashion. On the other hand, joining the Soccer
	Club will increase your physical attributes, your academic attributes ( Science,
	etc ... ) are only affected slightly. Joining the Band Club, which isn't directly
	related to any of your attributes, will increase almost everything little by
	little, the remaining attributes are decreased.

	The second difference, is they can also lead to special events as well. Joining
	the Soccer Club for instance, will let you play a match between another school
	in certain times. Joining the Band Club, will lead you to play in the concert on
	school fairs. And if a club is related to a girl, its sure as hell you'll get to
	meet her. And in the early stages of the game, you'll get meet her quicker than
	just waiting around for her to notice you.

	The third difference, is that joining ANY club can seriously drain your Stamina
	points. So frequent club activities are not advised.

	The fourth difference, is that you'll perform better when your points are high.
	As an example, you'll literally breeze through the science club when your Science
	points are on the above 130 mark. Making a hefty increase in your attributes
	without much take back. ( if you're still wanting to push your points even further )

	The fifth difference, is that clubs are not essential to your success in this game.
	I played thru find without joining any club.

	And yes, since clubs are not that important, I will not do the same point tables
	like I did with section 2. Just keep in mind that the club and its relation to
	your stats are pretty obvious. ( i.e. Science club will increase Science points,
	sport clubs will increase Athletics points, etc.. )

	[Art		    ][Athletics	    ][Gen. Knowledge  ]
	[Appearance	    ][Perseverance    ][Stress	    ]

6.2 The game screen

	Below the table, would be the main game screen.

	At your left is the Icon Bar. Refer to the previous section for detials.

	At your right is the Calendar. It lists from top to bottom :

					- The month
					- The day
					- The season (?)

	At the bottom is the Message Box. Here various messages or comments will
	be displayed. Whether you're talking or a sound effect has occured, it will
	be displayed here.

	At the center will be your Window screen. Which really doesn't serve any
	purpose except for telling whether its a night or a day. But some Icon Bar
	commads has shortcuts here. Clicking on the phone is the same as the Phone
	command at the Icon Bar. Clicling on the piece of paper is the same as the
	System command.

	In the other platforms, the Window screen holds a ton of various " Easter
	Eggs " or hidden secrets. Its still unknown whether the Super Famicom
	version has one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Phone command - an in depth look
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
7.0 Here's an in depth look at the Phone command and what it does for you.

7.1 The Phone Book

	The Phone Book lists all phone numbers available to you at the
	moment. You must contact your pal Yoshi first, for the other phone
	numbers. This is the screen you'll see when the Phone command is
	clicked.

	In other to gain new telephone numbers, you must have at least
	been properly introduced to a girl. Properly introduced means
	that the girl ought to know your name. Mere bumping doesn't
	count.

	Once you do, you can contact Yoshi and ask for her statistics.
	After which her name will be listed in your phone book. Which
	you can now call.

7.2 Translation of the Phone Book

	In their correction positions :

	Yoshi Saotome		| Saki Nijino			| Megumi Mikihara
	Shiori Fujisaki		| Yukari Koshiki		      | Yumi Saotome
	Mio Kisaragi		| Nozomi Kiyokawa		      | Rei Injuin
	Yuina Himoo		      | Mira Kagami			|
	Ayako Katagari		| Yuko Asahina			| Exit phone book

7.3 When calling Yoshi ..... ( for your survival )

	After some palsy-walsy talks, you'll be presented with 2 choices :

					- Ask what the girls think about you.
					- Ask for date spot recommendation.

	Asking about the date spots are useless though, theres your newspaper for
	that. Plus you ought to know where your particular girl likes to go for
	a date. Look at her stats ! ( section 11 )

	After choosing the first option, you'll now be presented by a series of
	iconic faces. Representing the respective girl's attitude towards you.
	The order is more or less the same as in the phone book, except with
	two columns instead of three. Anyway, the faces are more or less self
	explanatory. From the " raging red mad " to the " violet neutral " to the
	" blue blushingly enraptured head-over-heels in love ". You get the
	picture ?

	You may also see some blinking bombs in the face or faces. That is a sign
	that you will be bombed soon by that particular girl or girls !

	After which you will be prompted again to :

					- Check with a certain girl's statistics
					- Never mind ( exits the conversation )

	Checking with a girl's statistics will present you with a list at the
	bottom. These are the girl's names, in much the same order in your
	phone book. After clicking on the one you want you'll be presented
	with a screen with your girls face plus her statistics.

7.4 When calling Rei ......

	Simply put, you'll just pester him/her. Excessive calling however can
	lead to unexpected things on the end !(?) ( And I mean TRULY EXCESSIVE )
	Calling him/her will help you though in getting invited in Rei's
	annual Christmas Party. More details are on section 12.11

7.5 When calling girls .......

	It will automatically mean that you want a date. Refer to section 13
	for the dating details.

7.6 When you're called .......

	Look at the color of the text. If its RED, then its a bomb. If its
	BLUE, then it probably means an invitation from Yoshi to join him
	in a double date at the amusement park. Otherwise, then its simply
	someone else that you couldn't care less about.

8. The Memorial Spot
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.0 Whats the deal ?

	Okay, the Memorial Spot is your source of information about : whats on Cinema
	Paradise, whats playing on the Concert Hall, whats playing in the Melon-Pan Dome,
	new date spots, events, and such.

	In other words : This is your window to the outside world. Without it, your love
	life will get pretty dull pretty quick.

	You can only read it only at mornings, and it changes every three months. Or
	every season. And using it will not affect game time. ( you can read it over and over
	again and it would still be morning )

	-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8.2 Interpreting it

	(a.) The magazine's name

			self-explanatory, really ....

	(b.) New Date Spots

			If there's a new date spot coming up, it will show up here. Remember that
		it will happen on the magazine's date. Meaning if you've read the magazine on
		Februrary ( say 2/20/98 ) and the magazine's date is 3-4-5 ( March to May ) you
		won't see the new date spot til the next month. Make sure you read the date
		carefully.

	(c.) Events

			If there's gonna be an event at say,... Water World or at the Art Museum.
		It will be listed here with the month and possibly the day it will occur. If no
		day is specified, then it means that it will occur for the duration of the month
		or season.

	(d.) Magazine date

			Read this carefully. Most mistakes are from reading " Saayy ... There's
		a KNM concert, better call Shiori ..... " then finding out that the concert is
		for next month ( ooppps ) Better hope Shiori likes rock music ..............

	(e.) Movies

			Listed here will be the movie's name, and genre. The genre's written in
		Katakana. Better brush up on your reading skills. Remember that it will happen
		on the magazine's date.

	(f.) Concert

			As with Movies, listed here will be the musical group thats going to
		perform and the type of music they play. Remember that it will happen on the
		magazine's date.

	(g.) Stadium

			Listed here would be three months worth of schedules ( which isn't
		saying much ) ranging from playoffs to wrestling matches. Unlike the other
		schedules, stadium events more or less change every month and will be closed
		on certain times. Hence, the actual month is specified along with the event.

9. System menu - an in depth look
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
9.0 Where can I find it ?

	Its one of the most asked question about this game. Its only rivalled by this
	next question : " How do I save the game ? ".

	Well, you can find parts of the System menu on the Title Screen in Options.
	The real system menu can be accessed via your icon bar : the System command.
	The less obvious way of accessing the system menu is by clicking on the small
	piece of paper on the center of your desk.

9.1 The OPTION menu.

	Here's the layout of the OPTION menu ( accessed on the title screen )

	Mouse setting 			Left - Right
	Sound setting			Stereo - Monural
	Cursor speed			Slow - Normal - Fast
	Text output speed			Slow - Normal - Fast

				End		Omake ( bonus )

	The mouse setting shifts the active button to either the left mouse button
		or the right mouse button vice-versa with the cancel button. Choose
		the Left setting if you're using the mouse with your right hand. Or
		choose the Right setting if you use the mouse with your left hand.
		Default is at " Left ". Controller users need not bother with this.

	Sound setting lets you change the type of sound output to either in Stereo
		or in Monural. Default is at " Stereo "

	Cursor speed lets you change the speed of movement of the cursor to either
		slow, normal, or fast. Default is at " Normal "

	Text output speed lets you change the rate of text to be displayed to either
		slow, normal, or fast. Default is at " Mormal ", but personally spekaing,
		it didn't seem to have that much of a difference.

	End. Exits the OPTION screen.

	Omake. View the endings of the girls that you've won. Will only appear when
	 	you've finished the game with at least one girl.

9.2 The SYSTEM menu.

	The SYSTEM menu is laid out like this :

	Mouse Pad setting				Data Save
	Text Output setting			Data Load
	Sound setting				Exit

	The mouse pad setting is the same as in the OPTIONS menu. Clicking it would
		bring two submenus :

					Mouse button setting
					Cursor speed

		These two function like the ones on the OPTIONS menu.

	Text Ouput setting is the same as in the OPTIONS menu. The difference is that
		the choices are presented from top to bottom, rather than left to right.

	Sound setting's the same as in the OPTIONS menu.

	Data Save will let you save your game in one of the two available save game
		slots. It will be presented like this :

					Save slot 1
					Save slot 2
					Cancel

		Moving the cursor and clicking either Save slot 1 or Save slot 2 will
		save the game.

		Saving into an occupied spot, the game will prompt you to overwrite the
		existing save game or not.

		You can only save on evenings.

	Data Load will load a previously saved game. The layout is basically the same
		as above. And you'll choose the save game to load in much the same way
		that you save a game.

		You can only load on evenings.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. The concept of THE BOMB
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
10.0 Whats a BOMB ?

	A BOMB is an abstract representation of bad gossip about you. Or
	maybe not .... Anyway, a BOMB occurance is really BAD. It degrades
	the attitudes of the girls towards you. Until in the end, you'll
	have ALL of them angry or sad. Repairing the damage is costly and
	not always effective. And it can also chain-react. Making bombs
	harder to deal with, the more they occur.

	In short, you simply don't want this to happen to you at any cost.

10.1 The warning signs ...

	The strongest sign a girl can give you before she bombs you is when
	you'll encounter her after school. And either :

				- She'll stare at you angrily. Says nothing.
				- She'll stare at you with a sad face. Says nothing.
				- She'll complain.
				- She'll tongue-whip you.

	Remember these, since they're different for every character. As a general
	observation, mild-mannered girls complain, normal and shy girls stare, and the
	holier-than-thou girls tongue-whip. This is the second warning the girls gives
	you before bombing you.

	The first warning sign is in your pal Yoshi's ratings. As stated before, a
	blinking bomb on the iconic face or faces means that a girl/girls will plan
	to bomb you. Yes, PLAN. If you continue to ignore them, they'll do one of
	the above aforementioned " strong signs ". This means that she'll surely
	bomb you, it will just take a matter of time.

10.2 Why do these occur anyway ?

	These occur when one or more of these conditions are met :

				- When the girl is unhappy
				- When you turn down the girl for a walk very often
					( go back to reason #1 )
				- When you ignore the girl in her happy state, this
					means you've treated her nicely before and
					suddenly you've set your sights on another
					( go back to reason #1 )
				- When you refuse their offers for dates, especially
					ones that you have been ignoring
					( go back to reason #1, again )
				- When you don't show up for a date
					( back to reason #1 )
				- When you stood her up for another girl on a date
					( back to reason #1, yet again )
				- When you treat her like scum on your dates with her
					( ditto )
				- Or otherwise, you simply piss her off
					( like reason #1 )

10.3 When do they occur ?

	On average, they occur 2 to 6 turns from the second warning. It varies from
	girl to girl, some girls bomb you at the earliest opportunity, some girls
	tend to wait out and see if you redeem yourself.

	As a general rule, the relatively happy ones tend to bomb you much later than
	those who are neutral or angry.

	When a bomb has occured, you'll be phoned by Yoshi. You'll know this since the
	text will be in RED. He'll say who bombed you, so take note.

10.4 How to fight off bombs

	Okay, one of the best things you can do is to PREVENT bombs from occuring in the
	first place. Try to maintain a good relationship with the various girls. Yes,
	a good relationship, NOT a romantic relationship. Once the first warning
	occurs ( Yoshi's stats ) it would probably best to date whatever girl that
	plans to bomb you. It would save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Now,
	if there are more than 3 girls wanting to bomb you. THIS COULD BE A BIT
	DIFFICULT. But its still in your best interest to date one of them. Chances
	are, one of them will do the second warning in which you should date whoever
	gives you the second warning first. If theres at least 5 warnings, either
	you stick around a little longer and apply some of the tips below, or LOAD
	a saved game. The situation at this point can still be fixed, if you're
	lucky .....

	If the second warning has occured, date her immedietly. You won't regret it.
	If however you have been swamped with 3 second warnings in a row. Its time
	to do a little research, try to see if one of those girls have a birthday
	coming up. If there's actually one having a birthday in the next few weeks,
	give her a gift ! It will buy you time, so date her LAST and concentrate
	on the other 2. Now if the girl you happened to call refused your date offer,
	thats also good. It can also buy you some time, so date the next one. Yep,
	failed date offers COUNT !. Now if you have 5 second warnings in a row, keep
	your fingers crossed and hope one of them has a birthday coming up. If not,
	hope that your luck holds up, and at least some of them will refuse you.
	Otherwise LOAD a saved game. Its gonna take a lot of luck and effort to fight
	this one off .....

	Another way to fend these warnings off, is by the " walking home " routine.
	If a girl that going to bomb you happens to be in a Very Happy state, chances
	are good that she'll ask you to walk with her before she bombs you, accept
	the invitation ! And possibly buy some time ( its not always reliable ).
	Otherwise, chances are also very good that the girl you're after will pop out
	and ask you to walk home, and much to your dissapointment, a girl thats going
	to bomb you happens to be directly affected by your girl. ( the interaction
	between girls .... ) So if you're after Saki, then Yumi decides to bomb you,
	then during the course of the week, Saki pops up and asks you walk home
	together. Accepting the ivitation, ..... you'll be bombed by Yumi the next
	day !. Even if there are 2 other girls wanting to bomb you, remember, Yumi
	is already .... just a tad pissed off by your behavior .... and then you
	decide to go with Saki .... who can affect Yumi's behavior the most ( after all,
	Yumi got jealous over that lunch Saki made did she ? ... ). So the other girls
	won't get affected by it much, in doing so, you have pushed Yumi " over the edge ",
	prompting her to bomb you at her convinience. So one way to fight this one off,
	is to sacrifice a few moments with your loved one. Not much effect isn't it ?,
	anyway the important thing is that you now know that such a thing happens, and
	you better be really careful in dealing with it. ( this can wreck havoc with
	your finely tuned " bomb-diffusing " dating schedule doesn't it ? )

	Another way to prevent bombs from going off all over the place is to use the "
	advance date arrangements " technique. This works best when there are plenty
	of holidays. Basically, what you do is to call up the girl that plans to bomb
	you then set your date 2 to 3 weeks after the date you called ! When the next
	weekend comes, call another girl thats going to bomb you ( if any ... ) then
	set your date with her also after 2 to 3 weeks. Or alternately, call up the
	girl you're after and date her the next weekend !. This works for 3 girls at
	the most. And they should have given you the second warning around much the same
	time. ( better pray there's a holiday coming up ) You can use this technique for
	" mild occuring " bomb threats too ( thats when you don't get 3 bomb threats ON
	ONE WEEK ) but its best to deal with this the conventional way : DATE THEM AS
	SOON AS POSSIBLE

	Now during this time from the day you've called till the day of the propossed date,
	the girl(s) will not bomb you. After all, would you bomb someone thats going to go
	out with you, maybe in real life .., but not here. You may get a lot of encounters
	with the girl(s) thats going to bomb you during after school. Use your judgement
	whether to walk home with them or not. Don't push your luck though ...

	Of course, if you're REALLY lucky. Loading a previously saved game helps too.
	Since Tokimeki Memorial has a degree of randomness, its possible that the
	girl that bombed you on your previous game will bomb you much later in your
	current game. This has already helped me a couple of times now :) This is for
	" doomed " saved games, save games that already has considerable number of bomb
	threats. " Considerable " ?, anything more than 3 bomb threats can be said as
	" considerable ".

	Once a bomb has occurred. It will degrade most of the girls feelings about
	about you and will seriously affect the attitudes of at least 1 girl. The best
	you can do is to call the girl that bombed you. She will more or less ignore
	you once or twice if you happen to have a good relationship with her before
	( Remember, she doesn't have to be in her unhappiest state to bomb you ) Or
	she will ignore you indefinitely if she's already angry at you in the first
	place. Anyway, if you have less than 2 bomb threats now, do your best to obtain
	a date with the girl that bombed you. She'll be back to normal in no time.
	But once you have more than 3 bomb threats, once one bomb goes off, another one
	will go off shortly, then another, then another, then another, then finally
	you'll be pretty much hated by almost everyone, with no more chance for a date.
	Consider it game over.

11. The characters
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
11.0 Notes

	- I will list their names in the conventinal manner. ( first name, last name )
	- The date spot recommendations provided here should not be taken too seriously.
		After all, there no " wrong " date spot for any girl. As long as you know
		how to reply her questions, you'll do just fine.
	- The difficulty rating I give at the end of each of the girls is RELATIVE.
		Depending on how you play the game, it may end up harder than you thought.
	- The Constellation stat isn't included. As does the Notes stat.


11.1 Shiori Fujisaki

		Birthdate : Determined by player
		Bloodtype : Determined by player
		Height    : 158 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 83-56-84
			      2nd. year 84-56-85
			      3rd. year 85-57-86
		Club	    : Determined by her birthdate

		Background : The star of the game. The Idol of Kirameki High. Good at most everything,
					not to mention really beautiful. She was your best friend during
					your childhood for 10 years. Then one way or another, you had to
					leave her behind. Now, sometime has passed, and you finally saw
					her again in Kirameki High. This it it. Your last chance to get
					Shiori to fall madly in love with you and fulfill your destiny ..
					get her confession under the tree, of her love to you that has
					stayed with her all through these years ..... ( choke )

		Dating strategy : Okay, she may have a special place in her heart for you. But
					you'll have to prove your worth to her first. Shiori demands a
					high to very high statistic points so by the end of the game you
					ought to have around 150 of most of the stats. Except for the
					Stress stat of course.

					She'll be attending the first-rate university. ( thats our Shiori ! )
					You should do the same.

					Shiori likes quiet and romantic places. So the Neighborhood Park,
					Kirameki Park, and the Amusement Park are the places on which you
					ought to spend most of your time with her. Whenever there's a
					romantic movie in the theater or a KNM Orchestra concert, date her
				 	there too.  Anyway, you should at take her out at one date spot at
					least once. Its also worth mentioning that she's the only person
					thats LEAST likely to bomb you.

					You should date her anytime you can, winning her heart will
					be a long and painful journey. But its worth it !! Trust me.
					Just keep in mind that Shiori will easily fall in love with
					you in no time, BUT, winning her in the end is an another matter
					entirely. ( remember, she demands high stats plus a full
					complement of frequent and steady dates :) )


11.2 Mio Kisaragi

		Birthdate : February 3
		Bloodtype : A
		Height    : 156 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 80-59-82
			      2nd. year 80-59-83
			      3rd. year 81-59-83
		Club	    : Either the literature or the drama club

		Background : A quiet person. Mio's a shy romantic at heart. She really loves to
					read novels and love stories. She's not close to altheletic
					though, but it suits her fine. She'd rather be doing plays or
					reading. She wants to experience romance like those on romantic
					novels. You'll meet her when you have a good or high Humanities
					point or when you join the Drama Club or the Literature Club.

		Dating Strategy : Statistic-wise. Obviously, you should have high academics points.
					Around the same as Shiori. She doesn't care as much as your
					athletic prowess though so its okay to leave them at " mediocre ".
					She does like her boyfriend to be good-looking though so make
					sure your Appearance points by the end of the game is around 120.

					She will attend a First-rate university. Natch.

					In dating her, you should date her in quiet but not necessarily
					romantic places. The Library, Kirameki Park, The Planitarium,
					The Zoo, and such makes ideal dating places for her. Places to
					avoid are those that involve atheletecism. You know, Stadiums,
					Ski resorts etc.. When there's a romantic movie going on, take
					her there. Go for stroll around Kirameki Park ...  In the early
					stages, date her in educational places, gradually moving to the
					romantic ones.

					In a sense, her dating strategy seems to be similar to Shiori's.
					Except a hell lot easier.

					Winning her heart will be a bit hard though, so you better work
					on your academics points and your Appearance point. She won't
					respond to romance very well at first, but as time passes between
					you two, she'll be ready.


11.3 Yuina Himoo

		Birthdate : July 7
		Bloodtype : A
		Height    : 161 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 84-58-84
				2nd. year 84-59-85
				3rd. year 85-59-86
		Club 	    : Science club ( natch )

		Background : A really smart megalomaniac. Dreams of conquering the world someday.
					Nah, she ain't athletic. She'll let her machines do the work
					for her. Yuina's your average over-ambitious, science junkie.
					Loves computers or anything else electronic. Goes crazy for new
					data or new algorithms. With a mind like hers, she can only think
					of inventing something. But deep down, she's a vulnerable person
					and she can fall deeply in love with someone. Assuming they can
					stay long enough with her .... experiments. You'll meet her in
					the Science Club or when you have a high science point at the
					early stages of the game.

		Dating Strategy : Yuina's stat requirement is simple. It has to be at a level where
					you can pass the First-rate university entrance exam. She doesn't
					really care about your other stats. But as usual, make sure your
					appearance is at 110.

					She plans to attend a First-rate university. Like any good
					gearhead megalomaniac would do.

					Date spot-wise. She likes anything that has computers, or any
					quiet place. So, in this respect, she likes : Kirameki Park,
					the Junk Shop, Library, and the Game Center. She's OK with the
					" fun " date spots too. Like Mio, avoid taking her too often to
					anything with a relation to sports. She also likes Classic music.
					And as usual, date her on special occasions. If there's one thing
					weird about making dates with her, is that she simply won't go
					out with you on dates when its a holiday.

					Winning her heart is a bit hard on my games. You simply have to
					please her anyway you can. As weird as she is. AND you have to
					fight her robot near the end of the game. I don't know if you can
					lose in this battle, but i'm at least certain that its possible.
					And she'll visit you on your birthday, but for the wrong reason.

11.4 Ayako Katagari

		Birthdate : September 30
		Bloodtype : B
		Height    : 159 cm
		B-W-H     : 1st. year 86-60-86
				2nd. year 86-59-86
				3rd. year 86-60-87
		Club      : Either the art or the band club

		Background : A fun-lovin bilingual. Ayako is a person that likes things some
					people couldn't care less. And in her case : art. She isn't
					so keen on romance, ... yet. Ayako loves to draw. She really,
					really loves to draw. Not to mention her deep facination for
					things grotesque. She gets interested in boys that are good
					in arts. About the only thing that rivals her interest in art
					is in her interest in singing. She also loves to sing her heart
					out. She'll introduce herself if you have a high Art Point. Or
					you're an active member of the Art Club. And depending on some
					factors, you could also meet her in the Music Club. ( check
					Yoshi for her stats to be sure ) Its also worth noting that
					Ayako bust size is second to Mira's. ( which isn't saying much )

		Dating Strategy : Your stat requirements for Ayako are simple. Around 110 on your
					academic points. Plus a very high Art point. Perseverance can
					be around 80, while your Athletic Point can be around 80-90.
					I think your Appearance Points ought to be at 110.

					She plans to study art abroad. Your college plans is irrelevant.

					Her favorite date spots are the Art Museum, Karaoke Box, and the
					Amusement Park. Or any " fun " date spot for that matter. Just
					don't go on romantic spots until she's in the blushing stage.
					And naturally, she likes horror movies. Remember that she likes
					" fun " places, these doesn't necessarily need be " trendy ".

					She'll fall in love with you in no time. As long as maintain the
					same interests as she has. Such as works from Gagi. ( based on
					Giger of the Aliens fame )

11.5 Saki Nijino

		Birthdate : January 13
		Bloodtype : A
		Height    : 156 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 81-59-82
				2nd. year 82-59-83
				3rd. year 82-60-84
		Clubs     : Either the soccer or the baseball club

		Background : The idol of the sports club. Shes constantly on the lookout for
					potential winners. She's not that athletic though, but she
					enjoys sports events at the Stadium. She also loves to cook.
					In fact, you might say that cooking is what she does best.
					She likes boys that are strong of heart and mind and can
					accept her for what she is. You can meet her if you actively
					participate in either the Baseball Club or the Soccer Club.
					Or she will let herself known to you by having a high Athletics
					and/or Perseverance Points. Around 220 Athletics points and/or
					90 Perseverance

		Dating Strategy : As for her stat requirements, she likes her boyfriend to be
					" average ". She doesn't demand high stats. So you ought to
					have your statistics at around 100 or slightly more. Having
					a high Athletics and/or Perseverance Points helps.

					She plans to attend a college for chefs of sorts. Your college
					plan is irrelevant.

					You can choose any place you want to without having to worry
					showing her a good time. She LOVES sports though, so when the
					Stadium is holding a baseball match, go there. She's got no
					particular preference for movies and concerts. As usual, go
					with her on special date spots when they're available.

					Winning her heart is relatively easy. If you have a, ahem ...
					high Atletics and Perseverance Points. Just keep in mind that
					Saki follows the saying : " It doesn't matter whether you win
					or lose, its how you play the game " This holds true in your
					sports activities and your dates with her. Should you miss
					more than two weekends without dating her, she'll refuse your
					date offers for quite a while. Should this happen, just keep
					on asking for dates with her. She won't mind too much about
					your responses to your questions. ( but that doesn't mean you
					have to be impolite to her ! )

					( In another note, she seems to like me the more I ignored
					her. On New Years day or in the field trip, I refused her
					offers, refused to go home together,( I was after Mira at the
					time ) and dated her only when she decides to bomb me. Yet,
					her face is still BLUSHING. In the end, when I took the
					first-rate university exams and passed. She's the girl I got
					in the end. I loaded a saved game and took the second-rate
					university this time and I've won Mira )

11.6 Yukari Koshiki

		Birthdate : June 13
		Bloodtype : B
		Height    : 157 cm
		B-W-H     : 1st. year 80-59-84
				2nd. year 81-60-84
				3rd. year 82-60-86
		Clubs     : Tennis club

		Background : The richest girl you'll meet, but she gives no hint at that. Yukari
					is a slow, soft-spoken, free-spirited, and a tad self-centered
					girl that just happens to like boys that excel in sports. But deep
					inside though, she wants a boyfriend that sincerely cares for
					her, and shows her what the world has to offer. In other words :
					She wants someone " exciting ". Could be you .. Oh yeah, she likes
					to knit too. You'll meet her when you exercise frequently or when
					you'll join the Tennis club. Or when you reach around 90 Athletics
					points.

		Dating Strategy : Yukari's stat requirements are straightforward. High Appearance
					and high Athletics points is what she wants. The other stats
					should be at a somewhat high level too. Your Stress should be
					below 30. You also should win any athletic contests in school
					fairs.

					She plans to attend a Second-rate college.

					As for date spots, the Amusement Park, the Sea World, or anything
					else thats quiet but not serene. Aside from that, she's not too
					particular about any date spot. Just date her in all the date
					spots at least once a year. As always, date her in the special
					date spots should they become available. One thing to think
					about is that she craves adventure, but one with a sense of
					security.

					Winning her heart is a tad hard. Remember, she's very easily
					pissed. So treat her like a ridiculously expensive, beautiful
					delicate, pink-colored, flower bud that talks back.

11.7 Nozomi Kiyokawa

		Birthdate : December 3
		Bloodtype : A
		Height    : 163 cm
		B-W-H     : 1st. year 82-58-83
				2nd. year 83-58-83
				3rd. year 83-59-84
		Clubs     : Swimming Club

		Background : What we have here is olympic material. Does 50 kilometer jogs every
					day, while doing around a measly 180 points in the academic
					scoreboard. Nozomi's your typical cute athlete-type babe.
					And even though she maintains a sort of a " tomboyish " image,
					she does have a soft and sensitive side to her as well. After
					all, she actually LOVES plants. And she actually knows quite a
					bit about them too. And her ideal type ?, he has to be pretty
					much in the same level of athleticism as she is. AND, he also
					has to be kind and thoughtful too. She doesn't care if he's
					dumb as a paperweight. In short, she wants her male equivalent.
					You'll meet her when your Athletics around 100 or so or something
					below that in the early stages of the game.

		Dating Strategy : Her stat requirements are simple enough. High Athletics and
					Perseverance is where its at. As usual, make your Appearance
					points around 110 while keeping your stress around 10.

					She doesn't have any college plan since she's aspiring to trying
					out for the national team. ( swimming ? ). So your college plan
					is irrelevant.

					Her ideal date spots would be somewhere quiet with a touch of
					nature. So the Kirameki Park, the Green Gurden, the Neighborhood
					park, and the Zoo make good dating spots for her. And as with
					girls of this type, don't go on anyplace thats " educational ".
					She likes romantic movies and rock music so date her there when
					these becomes available. Oh yeah, she's also the girl thats MOST
					likely to bomb you at a moments notice. ( Mira ?, she tends to
					keep to herself most of the time )

					Winning her is easy. As long as you keep up your Athletics and
					Perseverance. She doesn't require the same frequency of dating
					as the other girls. She's already very happy whenever she gets
					to spend her time with you. So winning her isn't quite like the
					torture you have to deal with from the other girls.

11.8 Mira Kagami

		Birthdate : November 15
		Bloodtype : O
		Height    : 167 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 90-60-88
				2nd. year 92-61-89
				3rd. year 93-61-89
		Clubs	    : None. Shes in her very own fan club.

		Background : She is the most " well-endowed " girl you'll ever meet in this game.
					( you know what that means ... ) She's mature in both her
					mannerisms and in her choice of dresses. Its not surprsing that
					she's even got her very own fan club in school!. And with a
					personality like that, its no surprise that she likes dresses and
					jewelry. But even though she's already very popular with the boys
					in school and she's seemingly happy the way she is, she hides a
					sad and lonely past that still haunts her to this day. You can
					meet her when you have a very high Appearance Points in the early
					stages of the game.

		Dating Strategy : Mira demands a very, very high Appearance Point. Around 300
					points (?). Your other points can be around 110 or more.

					She plans to attend a Second-rate university while persuing a
					career in modeling. ( not model kits )

					The date spots for her are the shopping strip, the beach, the
					pool, and the ski resort. When going shopping choose the
					clothing shop ( the Boutique ). When these aren't available,
					your safe bets are the Kirameki Park, Green Gurden, and the
					Art Museum. Or anything that has an object of beauty so you can
					always reply : " Yep, that flower's beautiful, but not as
					beautiful as you " :) heh.. heh.. She likes Classic music and
					romantic movies but not to the same extent as Shiori. You should
					avoid the " fun " date spots such as the Game Center, Karaoke
					Box, etc.... or anything rowdy or lacks class.

					Did I mention how much she loves the beach and the ski resort ?

					Winning her heart is neither too easy nor is it too hard. Just
					make sure you got to meet her early in the game, and consider
					going shopping at least once a month. And make sure you're
					handsome enough for her when the game ends. Dating her will
					have a slight negative effect(?) on all the girls so you should
					be very careful.

11.9 Yuko Asahina

		Birthdate : October 17
		Bloodtype : B
		Height    : 159 cm
		B-W-H	    : 1st. year 83-59-85
				2nd. year 83-60-86
				3rd. year 85-60-86
		Club 	    : None.

		Background : The Wild Card. Hyper-sensitive to the latest fad and fashion
					trends. Yuko's the kind of girl that takes pleasure in keeping up
					with whats hot and whats not and not much anything else. She
					doesn't really care about what she does in school. She's not
					good at any athletics nor is she good in her academics. ( she's
					almost always at the bottom of the score grid ) SHE JUST WANNA
					HAVE FUN. Her ideal type would be someone just like her. Trendy,
					somewhat good-looking, and fairly dumb. You'll meet her when you'll
					bump her 3 or 4 times. And thats by being social.

		Dating Strategy : Fair enough. Her stat requirements are obvious. You simply have
					to be handsome enough for her. She couldn't care less about your
					other stats. But her winning formula isn't in the stats. Its in
					your actual dating habits with her.

					She plans to attend a Third-rate university. ( like she has a
					choice .... ) As for you, I think you'll fail to enter in a
					first-rate university no matter how high your stats is and
					you'll end up getting to the same university together. In other
					words : your college plan is irrelevant.

					Your dating strategy is simple. Know what places are the " in "
					spot for that season and date her there. Zoo's having a new
					shipment of koala's ? date her there. Amusemnt parks having a
					night parade ? date her there. Anyway, as long as you keep this
					in mind, you'll score big. And if you ran out of " hot " date
					spots. Feel free to date her in the " fun " date spots like the
					bowling alley. Just avoid the " educational " date spots ( unless
					they're having some sort of an event ).

					Getting her to fall in love with you will be a somewhat slow
					process though. Slow but easy. Careful study of the magazine
					is essential. Just keep it up and you'll win her in the end.

11.10 Megumi Mikihara

		Birthdate : September 5
		Bloodtype : A
		Height    : 150 cm
		B-W-H     : 1st. year 78-57-79
				2nd. year 78-58-79
				3rd. year 79-58-80
		Club	    : None

		Background : The girl that stutters the most. Megumi's your not-so-shy-after-all
					kind of girl. Not enough ?, Okay, so she's a cute, soft-spoken,
					kind to animals girl with an inferiority complex. Still not
					enough ? Then read this : she's ALSO Shiori's best friend. And
					like Shiori, she also likes boys that are almost perfect in
					every respect. Oh yeah, she's also got a " minor " crush on you.
					That is ... unless you do something about it of course. Her
					ideal type IS Shiori's ideal type too ( I wonder ... ) except
					he also HAS to like cute and fuzzy things. You'll meet her in 1
					of 3 ways : You'll meet her in the gates of Rei's mansion during
					the Christmas party ( you didn't get in of course ), Shiori will
					introduce her during the Christmas party, or Shiori will introduce
					her during Valentines Day. The last two conditions assume that :
					you have a good relationship with Shiori and/or you have high
					stats and/or you've won every single contest on every single
					school fair to date.

		Dating Strategy : Stat requirements for Megumi is the same as Shiori's. Somewhat
					high stats is what she requires.

					She'll attend a second-rate university. ( tsk, tsk, too bad, too
					bad ) she just couldn't cut it. It very ironic though that you
					can take the first-rate university exam due to your stats.

					Since she's a die-hard animal lover, her ideal date spots would be
					the Zoo, Water World, and the Mascot shop on the shopping district.
					She also likes quiet places such as the Ferris wheel ride on the
					amusement park, Kirameki Park and the like. She's not too wild on
					noisy and educational places though. Just think of a place where's
					theres cute and fuzzy things. ( Koala's ? )

					Okay, if it weren't for her ridiculously, unnecessarily hard
					requirements for meeting her. Winning her heart will be even
					easier than Nozomi. ( I managed to make her " enraptured " in
					three dates ) Which is appropriete too, since you'll only get
					around two years or less. ( if you're extremely lucky ) Go with
					her to the aforementioned date spots and you'll do just fine.
					And MOST importantly, dating her will have a considerable effect
					on your relationship with Shiori ( if you're interested, that is )
					She'll be somewhat upset if you're chasing Megumi most of the
					time.

11.11 Yumi Saotome

		Birthdate : May 16
		Bloodtype : O
		Height    : 155 cm
		B-W-H	    : 2nd. year 79-80-82
				3rd. year 81-60-84
		Club	    : Basketball Club

		Background : So this is what the " cute " voiced girl looks like !  And even though
					she's one school year behind, she's setting her sights on you.
					Yumi's the sort of your average fun-lovin, somewhat immature girl
					with a taste for things other girls simply find revolting. ( you
					know the type. don't you folks ? ) Aside from being an avid video
					gamer ( she likes shooters. natch ), she also actually likes
					anime ( which most of the other girls consider " childish " ) AND
					she's very much into pro-wrestliing ( the only other girl that
					can tolerate pro-wrestling is Saki ). And even with her peculiar
					( for a girl ) interests, she has a great desire to be treated
					like a " mature woman ". Which any boy that tries to date her will
					find out very quick. Ideal type ?, she already saw her ideal type
					on that morning on her first day of high school ( feel free to
					guess ). You'll automatically meet her ( whether you like it or
					not ) on the second year.

		Dating Strategy : Hmm.. stat requirements.. Methinks you'll do just find being
					average on everything except for Appearance. Which should be at a
					somewhat high level. ( around 120 ).

					Since you won't know what her college plans are. Its safe to
					assume that your college plan is irrelevant. You might even say
					that she'll follow your collge plan :), not that it matters much
					in your case.

					Okay, her favorite spots are the Arcade, the Amusement Park,
					Kirameki Park. Or any other place thats " fun ". And as mentioned
					before, she likes anime and pro-wrestling. So make sure to treat
					her when these becomes available. Anyway, the theme here is to
					have some fun with her. So simply avoid the educational stuff.
					She's also the SECOND MOST likely to bomb you senseless.

					Winning her will be quite easy, just remember what she likes. And
					don't treat her like a kid. Responding with something like " Ooh
					you look so cuuuuuuuuuute !!!! " is a definite no-no. Despite
					her real obvious lack of all things that make mature girls, you
					must do your best to make her, at least, feel mature.

11.12 Miharu Tateyabashi

		Background : She's your average high school girl thats got a serious crush on a
					boy. Namely YOU. Her only problem is that she doesn't have the
					courage to express her feelings to you. SHE'S A TAD SHY. The best
					she could do is to bump into you, so you'll take notice of her.
					Whether her strategy works or not, its up to you :) You'll bump
					into her at least once. I also tend to call her " Trouble Girl ",
					since she shows up when you're in a sticky situation.

		Dating Strategy : I'm not so sure what level of stats she demands, but its safe
					to assume that she wants your stats in the average to the very
					high.

					I think your college plan is irrelevant, methinks she'll go to
					the same college as you will do. ( kinda like what you ought to
					do when chasing the girl of your dreams )

					And yeah, you can't go on dates with her. But she does pop up
					more frequently when you're being swamped with bomb threats.
					And very, very rarely, you'll actually meet her in some date
					spots " accidentally ". And she'll actually assume you're there
					for her. But she'll act up again, and she'll be gone in no time.
					She doesn't do bombs too.

					Winning her heart is easy. Just don't go on dates with anyone
					else. Yep, bombs don't affect her and neither does your standing
					with the other girls. ( i.e. when Shiori is already in the
					enraptured state and you still failed to win her in the end,
					you'll still likely to get Miharu )

11.13 Yoshi Saotome
	" Pal "

		Background : Your best friend and your buddy. He's THE source for information
					about anyone you want to know. He sometimes invites you to
					go on a double date. And yes, he does his part by introducing
					you to Yuko if you're social enough. And by introducing his
					little sister Yumi by the second year.

11.14 Rei Injuin

		Background : The male (?) equivalent of Mira. Mature and very braggish, not to
					mention very rich. He/she will needle you any chance he/she gets.
					But you gotta owe it to him for having the annual Christmas
					Party. But all in all, he/she's still a friend of yours. With
					a name like Rei, you'd half-expect this guy/gal to be something
					else.

		Dating Strategy (?) : I'm not so sure about this one. They say that if you call Rei
						on every single holiday and weekend for the entire game,
						you'll meet him/her at the end game as he/she spills his/her
						secret to you. However, I don't have the stomach to try
						this one out myself ...... nor does most everyone else :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
12. The special events ( non-date related )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
12.0 Whats a special event ?

	A special event in this case are things that occur out of your normal schedules. Things
such as holidays, parties, etc.. are considered special events. There are 5 types of special
events :

			- Non-date related special events
			- Date related special events
			- Special occurances
			- Date invitations
			- Date spot special events

	The " Non-date related special events " are events that happen without much impact with
your love life. Also known as  " Calendar events " These types of events need no special
conditions for it to occur.

	The " Date related special events " are events that occur on a particular place with a
particular girl. Most events help you in your relationship, some events do not. And these
things simply happen, you need not do something special for it to happen. Its effects is
relevant. If a girl is in love with you, the event will make your relationship even stronger.
If not, well. Nothing doing I suppose. Remember that it will only happen once. And some events
of this kind really DO require the girl to be in love with you or close to be.

	The " Special occurances " are events that occur rarely. These things tend to pop out
when you least expect it. And all of these ( to the best of my knowledge anyway .... ) will
only occur when you have a very good or romantic relationship with a particular girl. For
example : Get good with Saki Nijino, and you'll have a very good chance of being invited to
share lunch with her. Or maybe if you have a romantic relationship with Shiori Fujisaki, you'll
have a very good chance of sharing an umbrella with her during a rainy day. These events is a
sign of a very good relationship. These types of events simply require that the girl be in love
with you or close to be.

	The " Date invitations " are events where a girl will ask you out for a date. These
things occur at random, and will occur more or less on the early stages of the game. Or when
you still don't have steady dates.

	The " Date spot special events " are events that occur on a certain time on a certain
place. For example, the Amusement Park has a night parade every August. You always have the
option of avoiding it. Another example is the " Summer Festival ". These types of events
need no special conditions for it to occur. But it does require you to be at the specified
place at the specified time to experience the event.

12.1 New Years Day ( January 1st )
	- get your fortune told ! -

	On every 1st of January, you'll go to the temple/shrine to have your
	fortune told. First you'll be presented with two choices :

			- Invite a girl to go with you
			- Go alone

	Of course, we're on a mission to make a girl fall in love with you. So
	you should choose the first option unless you have a good reason for
	going alone. ( such as your girl hasn't showed up yet )

	At the bottom, you'll see the list of girls. Its also in the same order
	as in the Phone book.

	Remember, you should already know the girl's telephone number for you to
	call them.

	After choosing one, you'll be set to go. Just answer her question of
	whether her kimono looks good or not. ( you'll know what to answer, the
	first option is usually positive )( note 2 : only comes out when your
	girl is wearing a kimono and/or when she stops by in your house. )

	In another note, if a girl has already fallen in love with you. She'll
	invite you to go with her to the temple/shrine instead ! After some
	talks you'll be presented with two choices :

			- Accept her invitation
			- Decline her invitation

	If you decline, you'll be presented with the same choices as before.
	Remember, this can also affect your relationship to some degree.

	Once on the temple and after some dialogues, you'll now be asked what
	fortune would you like to know :

			- Studies fortune
			- Health fortune
			- Romance fortune

	Picking either of the first two options will proceed you to the  fortune
	telling screen. Picking the Romance option will present you with the same
	list of available girls.

	After which, you'll be presented with a bright, flashy screen ( Sorry folks,
	don't know what it is ) with bright red large hiragana characters. Proceeding
	will tell your fortune.

	Fortunes will range from " very good " to the " very bad ". If you can read
	a bit of katakana, you'll know if the fortune's good or bad. If its good,
	your character will say " Lucky ! " written in katakana. Its bad if your
	character says otherwise.

	Don't take it lightly though, since it actually affects you ! A bad fortune
	in say, .. a romantic relationship with Shiori. Will automatically make the
	rest of the year very hard for you to make Shiori fall in love with you !
	A good fortune on the other hand, will make your chances better than usual.

12.2 Valentines Day ( Februrary 14 or 13 )
	- its nice to know you're wanted -

	Ahh, Valentines Day. Its tradition in Japan for girls to give chocolates
	to their male colleagues, either obligatory or otherwise :)

	First you'll meet with Rei with his/her usual classy-bragging ways. Then
	you'll see a truck full of chocolates.

	During the day, the girls that want to maintain good relations with you
	or girls that are in love with you will give you chocolate !

	Your character will even know if its obligatory or not. Generally speaking,
	off-the-shelf chocolates are for obligatory purposes. Chocolates made
	by the girl herself are very special and is for romantic intentions.

12.3 March 14
	- payback valentine -

	Don't know what day it is. But rest assured, this day is YOUR TURN. Yep,
	your turn to give something to the girl that you like.

	You can only give to one girl. And you can only choose among the " happy "
	to the " enraptured " ones. So if Shiori's still in a neutral state, you
	can't give to her.

	And yeah, theres no way out for this one. You HAVE to do it. Whether its
	to the wrong girl or not. And it has a very strong effect on whomever girl
	you give it to. So either you'll score big or you'll score big with the
	wrong girl. ( heh .. heh .. )

12.4 Late March to Mid April
	- cherry blossom festival -

	Dates that take place in Kirameki Park during late March to mid April will
	be treated with a nice stroll under the cherry tree blossoms.

12.5 Golden Week : First week of May
	- break time -

	Oh yes !!! 5 whole days vacation. Its up to you how to spend it though.
	Either you can use it for stat gaining, or you can use it fight off a
	couple of bomb threats ! ( very useful indeed ) You're given an opportunity
	to save on the third day.

12.6 Mid July or Mid August ( random, but it happens more on mid August )
	- double date -

	This event occurs randomly. And if it does occur it usually happens on July
	or August. This is where your pal Yoshi will invite you to go on a double
	date to the amusement park.

	Depending on your game, the double date will consist of Shiori and another
	girl. I'm not so sure whether another girl will replace Shiori. Though I
	faintly recall having this event without Shiori ....

	You will visit each of the three attractions on the amusement park. Your
	first stop will the Ferris Wheel, the next stop will be at the Jet Coaster
	or the Magic Bell ( Bevel ? ) it depends on the year, the last stop will be
	at the Ghost House.

	At each stop you will be asked which girl you should take on that particular
	attraction. The first option will pick the first girl you've met on this
	event.( usually Shiori ) The second option will pick the other girl.

12.7 First Sunday of August
	- let the festivities begin -

	Again, I don't know what day this is. But its referred to as " Summer Festival ".
	Any date thats arranged for the first sunday of August will be given an option
	to go to a festival.

	In 1997, you will be given an opportunity to grab some prizes at a mini-game.

	In 1998, you will be treated to a fireworks display.

	And unlike other events on this section. This one's actually a date. You're
	free to choose this or not.

12.8 School Fair ( June 8, 7, or 6 )
	- join in -

	Every June, your school will hold a special fair ( more like an intramurals ).

	You'll participate in games during the fair. You can only play one game
	though. There are a total of 4 games, 2 of which requires rapid button mashing,
	the other two rely on rhythmic button pressing.

	The first menu is :

					- Do the 100 meter dash.
					- Do the 3-legged race.
					- Go to the group games. ( the second menu )

	The 100 meter dash has you rapidly pushing 2 buttons to run. If you have a
	high Athletics point, you'll do good here. The 3-legged race has you with
	Shiori as your partner. You'll be pressing 2 buttons in a very smooth sequence.
	Mess up the rhythmic button presses and either one of you will end up with
	his or her face on the ground.

	The second menu is :

					- Do a shoot-the-basket like game
					- Pass a big ball from the left to the right side
					- Go back to the track-and-field games. ( the first menu )

	The games on the second menu involve 3 or more people. The first game lets you
	throw small balls on a basket perched atop a pole. This is the second button
	mashing game. I'm not so sure how it works though basically two groups of people
	will try to fill the basket with as much colored balls as they can throw into
	the basket within the time limit. The group with the most balls on the basket wins.

	The second game has you passing a huge ball from one side to the other. This
	involves two groups, each trying to pass the huge ball from its starting basket to
	the basket on the other side. Like thr 3-legged race, this game requires very
	smooth rhythmic button pressing. The first group to get their ball to the end
	basket wins.

12.9 Field Trip ( September 15 )
	- visit the places, meet the locals -

	On September 15, you'll get to go on a field trip. Happens only once per game.

	You'll be given two choices :

					- Go to Australia
					- Go to China

	Either way, its only cosmetically different. You'll still see the sights and you'll
	still fight a boss of sorts in the end. After the first menu screen, you'll trade
	lip with .... who else .... Rei. Then you'll see the plane sequence.

	Once on the hotel lobby, you'll be given two choices :

					- Go with a girl
					- Go with Yoshi

	This works on almost the same manner as the New Years Day event. In which if you
	already have a girl thats fallen in love with you, she'll ask you out instead.
	Its in your best interest to go out with the girl you like. ( Yumi doesn't apply
	though since she's not introduced in the game yet, and that exception also applies
	to girls you haven't met prior to the field trip too )

	After which you'll see the different sights, going to Australia, you'll visit the
	famous Opera House, then you'll go the Myer's Rock. Going to China, you'll visit
	the famous Red Square, then you'll go to the Great Wall.

	After these, you'll be attacked by an animal. An alligator in Australia, and a
	panda in China. You'll be given two choices :

					- Run away
					- Stay and fight

	( if you happen to be going with Yoshi, then there's a third choice, not sure
		what it does )

	Running away doesn't seem to have much of an effect though, choosing the " fight "
	option will turn the game into " combat " mode. Those who play console RPGs will
	be very familiar with the layout.

	In " combat " mode, your enemy is on the left, that puny character on the right is
	you. Below right, you'll see your name plus your HP or health points. In the pop-up
	menu, there will be two choices :

					- Attack
					- Defensive position

	The " attack " command is self-explanatory. The second command will make your
	character defend, reducing damage plus gaining 5 to 30 HP.

	Your statistics will come into play here, here are some of the details :

					- Your Stamina Points serve as your HP
					- Your Perseverance Points will determind how fast you'll respond
						and your endurance
					- Your Athletics Points will determind how much damage you can
						inflict
					- Your Stress Points will determind your hit rate

	You'll come across another fight scene randomly and rarely on the main game,
	we'll save that for later .....

	Back to the game !, your enemy will inflict around 100 - 300 points of normal
	damage. And it can do around 300 - 700 points of special damage. It depends on
	how strong your character is at that point. Winning the battle will make your
	girl proud !, otherwise, she'll thank you anyway for your bravery. ( YOU WON'T
	DIE, so don't sweat it if you're down to 3 HP )

12.10 School Club Fair ( sometime October )
	- the clubs strut their stuff -

	Unlike the previous fair, this one simply has you visiting the various clubs to
	see what they've got. ( assuming you've joined the atletics-related clubs or
	you haven't joined any club at all ) I think this is the closest it can be to
	a " Bunkasai ".

	First, you'll be given two choices :

					- Go with a girl
					- go alone ( or go with Yoshi )

	Going with a girl will present you with the very same girl-picking menu as
	before. Also, as before, if a girl is already in love with you, she'll ask
	you out instead.

	After which, you'll be given 5 choices :

					- Go to the Literature Club
					- Go to the Drama Club
					- Go to the Science Club
					- Go to the Art Club
					- Go to the Band Club

	Going to the Literature Club, you'll get to browse thru different sorts of
	topics, epithets, etc .... If you're a member, then you'll present a speech
	or a poem. (?) If Shiori's in this club and you're not, then she'll present
	a speech. If neither applies, then someone will.

	Going to the Drama Club, you'll get to see a stage play. Its either a classic
	Japanese samurai show, a sentai show, or a parody of Snow White. Anyway, if
	you're a member of the Drama Club, you'll play the role of the leading male
	character. ( if not, well, the lead male sure looks like your video game
	alter ego though )

	Going to the Science Club, you'll get to see a laser show, the second time
	around, it will be a robot. If you're a member, and the girl that you've
	already met is ALSO a member of the science club, then she'll do the demo.
	( likely Shiori or Yuina )If you're a member, but you don't know anyone thats
	a member of the science club OR if you're NOT a member in the first place,
	then you'll do the demo. If Yuina is doing the demo, her face will appear
	on the light show. Otherwise, it will be Shiori's face.

	Going to the Art Club, you'll get to see them painting still life. ( nudes
	no doubt, but since this is the Super Famicom .... make that semi-nude ) If
	you're a member, then you'll paint. ( just a couple of dialogs )

	Going to the Band Club, you'll get to see the band perform. The KEIONBU LIVE.
	You'll be performing an " idol " type song. If you're a member, you'll be one
	of the guitarists. ( anyway he DOES look similar to your alter ego ) Its a
	shame that you'll only get to hear some FM synth tunes though.

12.11 Rei's annual Christmas party ( December 24 )
	- party on -

	This happens every time. The difference is whether you'll get to attend
	or not. Basically, you attend a party. Get a gift. And save yourself from
	a very embarassing situation. Since your character is stupid enough to
	attempt to attend this party.

	First things first, how to get in. Here's what you do. If you're stats on
	Appearance or/and Athletics are on a mediocre level around the Autumn season
	( months 9-10-11 ), then immedietly start calling Rei and/or start some
	heavy use of the Socialize command. If all goes well, you'll be permitted
	inside when the time comes.

	If you have a very high Athletics points, I think the bouncer will get
	intimidated, and will let you in. Regardless of whether you have a high
	Appearance points or not. You may have to call Rei a few times for this
	to work.

	If you have a high Appearance point ( around 90+ ) You will be permitted in.
	Even if you haven't called Rei EVEN ONCE. But I think you ought to have a
	decent score on your Athletics points though ....

	Of course, if your Appearance is at around 150 points, then you'll have no
	problems whatsoever.

	If you fail to get in, you'll be treated to a pretty pathetic sequence of
	you enjoying Christmas all by yourself wearing a pathetic Santa Claus
	outfit, with a mini-Christmas tree with a single slice of cake and drinks
	....... ( lets leave this scene behind ... . " MERI KURISUMASU !!!!!!! "
	..... sick ..........)

	Once you do get inside, you'll have a " friendly " chit-chat with Rei.
	Afterwards  you'll get to meet at least 2 girls inside. These girls are
	usually on the " happy " to the " enraptured " status. Except for Shiori
	anyway. After which you'll get to pick your gift from a selection of four.

	Picking the gift will take a lot of guess work. But keep in mind :

		- Girls on the " very happy " or " enraptured " status will most likely
			wrap their gifts with the " Heart " gift wrapping.
		- Girls on the " happy " status will most likely place their gifts second
			or in the third spot.
		- Girls on the " neutral " status will place their gifts on the remaining
			( if any ) spots. Highly unlikely though .....
		- If either of the conditions above fail, chances are the gift will come
			from Rei ! ( an autographed pic, no doubt )
		- Girls that want to get to know you better will also most likely wrap
			their gifts with the " Heart " gift wrapping.

	Remember, that the preceeding guide doesn't always work. And remember that
	only the girls that you've met on the Christmas Party will give gifts.

12.12 Exam Week ( March 3 or 2, July 8 or 7, and December 9 or 8 )
	- cram hell -

	In these dates, you do the major exams for five subjects.

	These are : Humanities, Science, Art, Gen. Knowledge, and Athletics.

	This event is automatic. But you'll see how your character is doing.

	The subjects with the most clout would have to be Humanities and Science.
	Low scores on these, and its sure to have a pretty miserable overall scoring.

	After this, you'll get to see how you fare against your classmates !! :)

	I think the lowest score you can get is somewhere 180 points. The highest score
	I got is 500. I'm not sure whether its possible to have a higher score.

12.13 College entrance exams ( Februrary 20 on the last year )
	- cram hell, again -

	Your future ( in this game at least ) will be partly decided on what university
	you plan to attend to.

	First, you'll be given two options :

					- Apply for the entrance exams
					- Don't apply yet

	The last option is your alternative if you happen to be pretty dumb, otherwise
	you should take the entrance exams. ( and if you happen to be smart and if you
	choosed NOT to apply, your character will argue that you should take the
	entrance exams and, ... wait a minute ... your character REALLY is smart isn't
	he ? )

	After which you'll be given three options :

					- Apply for the first-rank university
					- Apply for the second-rank university
					- Apply for the third-rank university

	Then its exam time !!, just take the univeristy that reflects your significant
	other's choice. But to pass, you'll have to be at a certain level of knowledge.
	For example, if you place somewhere 200 below points on your overall score in
	the school exam week. Then you'll do good at the third-rank university. If
	somewhere 400 below, then take the second or first.

12.14 Last Day ( March 1 of the last year )
	- was your " destiny " fufilled ? -

	This is it. This is the reason why you've played the game in the first place.
	In the Last Day, the girl thats in love with you will confess her feelings
	beneath the tree. Otherwise .... well ....

 	First you'll go to school and generally walk around till you'll get to your
	classroom.

	In the classroom, if you did everything right, you'll receive a letter from
	a girl ( you won't know who yet ... ) telling you to meet her by the tree.

	Of course, your pal Yoshi is in the game too, he can also get a girlfriend.

	If he has one, you'll meet Yoshi with the girl that confessed her love to him
	in the tree sometime late February.

	Should you receive a letter from a girl, you'll be presented with a sequence
	..... nahh, you ought to play the game to find this one out.

	Should you meet with Yoshi in the classroom instead, it means:

						- you won't get a letter

	If you didn't get the girl in the end, you'll be presented with your video
	game alter ego biting the dating game dust. Better stick to playing Magical
	Date instead :)

12.15 Birthdays
	- and what they could do to you -

	On any girls birthday ( check section 11 ) You'll be prompted to either :

						- give her a gift
						- don't give her anything

	Should you decide to give her a gift, you'll be presented with a choice between 3
	potential gifts. The first gift is usually the best choice.

	Giving her the best gift will increase your standing towards her. Giving her a so-so
	gift will do nothing except maintaining a good relationship. Giving her a bad gift
	will make her angry. Despite what she says.

	One point to consider is that giving her a bad gift is more damaging that not
	giving her a gift at all.

	If it happens to be your birthday. You'll be given a gift from any of the girls that
	you've met. You'll have a maximum of three gifts. But its also possible that no one
	will give you a gift at all. Girls that are happy with you will give gifts. And its
	usually in order of preference. The first name to pop up will be the girl thats in a
	relatively happier state than in the other two.

12.16 Misc. special events
	- whats that again? -

	The following events are considered unclassifiable ( at the moment ). And for sake
	of convinience, they'll all be found here.

					- Find the marble under 3 cups game. Happens when shopping.
						So far happened only with Yukari and Saki in my games.
					- Roulette-like game. Happens when shopping. So far happened
						only with Saki in my games.
					- A digital compatibility meter of sorts. Happens when shopping.
						Happened with Mio. They call it " Bio-rhythms "
					- Fight 3 crooks and a boss, RPG style. Happens when shopping.
						So far happened only with Yuina in my games.
					- Eavesdropping on bathers. Get to see an almost naked bathing
						female ( lucky !! ), or get to see muscle-bound guys
						( if you're extremely not-so-lucky ). But you'll more or
						less likely to see an empty bathroom. Happens on weekend
						academic club sessions ( Science club, Literature .... )

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. The date spots
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
13.0 What are those date spots ?

	Having a bit of trouble deciphering those Kanji ? Here's a helpful table :

	1st. page

	Neighborhood Park				Green Gurden
	Kirameki Park				Planetarium
	Shopping Center				Art Museum
	Sea World					Library
	Zoo						Game Center

	2nd. page

	Star Bowling                    	Concert Hall
	Karaoke Box					Pool
	Amusement Park				Beach
	Melon-Pan Dome Stadium			Summer Festival
	Cinema Paradaise				Skating Rink

	3rd. page

	Ski Resort

	Remember, not all of these are available in a given time. Some date spots will
	appear only in a certain month. While some date spots are unavailable at the
	early stages of the game.

	And most importantly, they will only become available when you read the magazine
	every season.

	The topmost right kanji is the " Next Page " button.

13.1 Neighborhood Park and the Kirameki Park
	- take a stroll -

	The neighborhood park and Kirameki parks is just that. Parks. Kirameki Park is
	a lot larger though and the places in the park you go for dates changes
	depending on the time of year. Worth a million visits. Though not necessarily
	with the same girl in the same month.

13.2 Shopping Center
	- take an expensive stroll -

	You'll get to choose from three stores :

						- Clothing Store ( Boutique )
						- Mascot Store ( Plush toys )
						- Junk Store ( Electronics )

	The clothing store is self-explanatory. The mascot store is a store that sells
	all sorts of cute and fuzzy things. The junk store sells resistors, step-down
	transformers, IC's, well, you know. Its a kind of place girls love to hate. All
	in all, worth a visit. But avoid the Junk store whenever possible unless you're
	dating Yuina. You can't go wrong as much in this date spot, all girls love
	shopping one way or another.

13.3 Sea World, Zoo, and Green Gurden
	- an educational stroll -

	Either of these three exibit living creatures. Educational stuff. Worth a few
	visits with any girl. Especially those who like piece and quiet.

13.4 Planitarium
	- education with a bit of romance -

	Unlike the previous three, this one's educational, yet, its setting in a pitch
	black sky with stars is inherently romantic. Worth a visit when you've ran out
	of romantic date spots.

13.5 Art Museum and Library
	- REAL education -

	Unlike the Planetarium, these ones don't even come close to romantic. Should be
	frequently be visited by only those girls who like either art or reading. It
	shouldn't take you long to know who ...

13.6 Game Center
	- fun for kids of all ages -

	You get to choose where to go :

						- Video arcade games
						- Parlor games

	The arcade lets you display your video game talent. Want pachinko ? Then go
	to the parlor games. You don't actually win anything though. Worth a visit
	with fun-lovin or techno-saavy girls.

13.7 Star Bowling and Karaoke Box
	- yet more fun -

	These are the politically correct " fun " date spots. Worth a few visits.

13.8 Amusement Park
	- even more fun -

	What makes this different from the other " fun " places is that no girl you know
	will dislike it. Yep, the Amusement Park is a good " filler " date spot. This is
	the date spot to go to when you want to add some variety to your dating schedule.

	In the park you'll have three places to go :

						- The ferris wheel
						- The Jet Coaster or the Magic Bell
						- The Ghost House

	The ferris wheel is the romantic ride on the Amusement Park, the next ride is for
	those who want excitement. The Ghost House is not recommended for frequent visits.
	But it depends on the girl you're dating with.

	The Jet Coaster and the Magic Bell more or less has the same effect. It will be the
	Jet Coaster in the early stages of the game, then it will be replaced with the Magic
	Bell.

	And in August. They'll hold a special sentai show ( y'know, Japanese super hero shows
	kinds like Shaider, Kamen Rider Black, the Mighty Morphin Powe .... lets stop there )
	Then they'll hold a night parade at night.

13.9 Melon-Pan Dome Stadium, Cinema Paradise, and Concert Hall
	- get social -

	These three places have three things in common. First, they all hold performances.
	Second, girl's don't expect romance when dated at these places ( with one exception )
	Third, they change performances over time.

	What makes these date spots special is that if your girl happens to like a particular
	sport, movie, or music bands. You'll score big here. Worth a visit when it warrants
	your girl's attention.

13.10 Pool and the Beach
	- fun in the sun -

	Both of these date spots only appear in late July to the end of August and both of them
	also involve water. And both of them gives you an excuse to see your girl in a swimsuit :)

	You should visit these whenever they become available.

13.11 Summer Festival
	- night fun -

	Refer to section 12.7 for the details. In my method on playing the game, I choose
	this spot as the first date of whatever girl I plan to win. Call me romantic.

13.12 Skating Rink and Ski Resort
	- winter fun -

	These date spots only appear in late December till the end of the first week of January
	The skating rink is just that, a skating rink. Most players prefer to go to the Ski
	resort. Classy ... not to mention seeing your girl bundled up on winter clothing. ( makes
	a refreshing change don't you think ?, Mira looks soooooo happy )

	You should visit these whenever they become available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. The dating game ( general overview )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
14.0 Welcome

	Welcome to the most tiresome 3 years of high school life. The goal of Tokimeki Memorial
	should you choose to accept it, is to win the heart of any one of the 10 girls that
	you're gonna meet during the course of the game. Winning the girl ain't easy, losing
	is just one bomb away. So what are you going to do ? Play the game again and again.
	Thats the second-best tip ever ! Nothing can teach you better than experience. Just
	apply all you have learned on the previous sections. But if you have played the game
	a thousand times and still you haven't even got Miharu, best read the section 16.
	It'll detail what I did to win. It works.

14.1 Dating for newbies

	Heres a step-by-step simple explanation on how to make dates :

	1. Meeting her. You have to know the girl and the girl ought to know you.
	2. Call up Yoshi. Ask for her stats so you'll also be given her phone number.
	3. Call up the girl. Call the girl you want to date.
	4. Choose the date. A calendar will appear, choose the day. You can only date
		girls on weekends or holidays.
	5. Choose the place. After selecting the date, you'll be presented with the
		available date spots. Choose the venue.
	6. Waiting for her approval. After this, you'll have to wait and see if she
		accepts your offer.
	7. Interpreting. You'll know you've got a date when at the last screen of this
		process, your character will say " Yatta " in katakana and the month and
		day of the date in numbers. Otherwise you failed to get a date.
	8. The day. In the day of your date, you'll be notified in the message box of
		the date. It will display the name of the girl you've dated and the place.
	9. Date. Click on the date icon and you're set.

14.2 Decisons, decisions

	First and foremost, decide you're going to win. Changing your mind in mid-game can
	have disatrous effects. Once you've decided, now do your best to meet that particular
	girl. As an example, in this game, you've planned to court Mio. Reading section 11,
	you'll note that Mio demands a high academics and appearance points but doesn't care
	on how strong you are. So in a nutshell, she wants at least an intelligent, handsome,
	and wimpy boyfriend. So you better work on those.

14.3 Love at first sight, or is it ?

	Second is the meeting part. After all whats good for wanting to date a person if she
	doesn't even know you exist. Following the example above, to meet Mio, you ought to
	have a high academic points, while being handsome. So what you're going to do to get
	her attention ? Study of course. Work on your Humanities. Or alternately, join the
	Drama club. Then you'll meet her, after which you should call Yoshi immedietly for
	her stats and phone number. If you want to meet another girl, then look in section 11.
	And find out how to meet her.

14.4 Getting to know each other better

	Third is the dating part. Now since you've got Mio's phone number. Call her when you
	get the chance get dates from her. Persevere, shrug off bombs, keep your stats up, date
	her some more. Easy ? it sounds easy doesn't it ? Actually its as simple and complicated
	as that. You'll know what it means when you've played the game.

14.5 Bomb avoidance

	During the course of the game, you'll be getting bomb threats from other girls that think
	you're not treating them right. Its in your best interest to fight these off. Refer to
	section 10 for the details.

14.6 Birthdays

	Lets face it, everyone has a birthday, including you. So when Mio's birthday comes, give
	her the best gift !. When its the " other " girl's birthday, give her the so-so gift.

14.7 In short ...

	So, - in how to fall in love - Tokimeki style. Heres the lowdown :

	1. Meet the girl
	2. Know the girl's phone number
	3. Know what the girl likes
	4. Date her
	5. Date her some more
	6. Date the others
	7. Date her some more
	8. Give her the best gifts
	9. Show her what she likes
	10. Give her the best answers to all her questions
	11. Date her in special occasions
	12. Date her some more
	13. Never refuse her offer to go home with her
	14. Never refuse her date offers
	15. Occationally turn down the other girls offers
	16. Experience every single special event with her if possible
	17. Date her some more
	18. All the while when doing the above, build your stats
	19. Choose the same college as her
	20. Never let a bomb go off
	21. Build your stats some more
	22. Date her some more
	23. Give her something on March 14
	24. Never do anything that would offend her
	25. Pray nothing goes wrong
	26. Date her some more

	There, that pretty sums up whatever you have to do. Doesn't it ?
	At least you now know how to make a date. And I heartily recommend
	that you play the game by yourself at this point and discover all
	the ups and downs of the game. Do not rely on the FAQ at this point.

	Should you be in need of help after a couple of hours playing the
	game. Then consider reading the remaining chapters.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
15. The dating game ( advanced thingies for various questions )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
15.0 Now what ?
	Ans : If you did fine with just the above information. Then you don't need to read
		this part of the FAQ.

15.1 How come the aforementioned date spots were not available ?
	Ans : Because :

					- Some date spots will only be available on certain times.
					- Some date spots will only be available when the time comes.
					- New date spots will only appear WHEN YOU READ THE NEWSPAPER.

		Check the newspaper every season. And check section 13 of this FAQ for the
		details.

15.2 How come she didn't meet me in our date ?
	Ans : She stood you up. It happens when a girl is angry at you.

15.3 She's asking me about something, what should I do ?
	Ans : On every date, the girl will ask you a certain questions. As an example,when
		going on dates in the theater, she'll want your opinion about the movie. The first
		option usually means " I love it ". The second option usually means " I absolutely
		hate it ". The last usually means " Just okay ".

		Now in dates in Kirameki Park in the Spring and Winter season. She'll comment
		about the scenery. You'll have to say something. The first option usually is
		a romantic gesture. The second option usually is an insult like " its sickening ".
		The third option usually has you agreeing to whatever the girl is saying.

		Now you should reply the " romantic " or the " good " respondses for girls that
		you want to make happy. Reply with insults if you want to make her unhappy or
		down-right pissed. The effect of your answer will be reflected on the girls face.

		As a general rule, almost always choose the first option. Its very likely to be
		a good response. And yes, even though the questions and answers change during the
		course of the game, the first option is still very likely to be a good response.

15.4 What about this " walking home " business ?
	Ans : At certain times you'll either encounter a girl after school or the girl will
		meet up with you. You'll either choose to walk home with them or refuse.

		The more you walk home with a particular girl, the more she'll expect from you.
		( i.e. she'll think that you really like her ... ) Keep that in mind.

		There are some times when you walk home with someone, she'll talk with you
		something private. This event to the best of my knowledge occurs more during
		summer or winter and before exam weeks. Either they'll say " what do you think
		of the coming exams ? " or they'll mention the date spots they want you to take
		them. In either case, if it happens when you refuse to walk with them. Your
		character will curse on how stupid he was ( " baka baka baka " ) and you'll receive
		a bomb threat soon after. Such effieciency ....

		One thing that you could use to your advantage is that girls don't bomb you when
		you and that certain girl have a date planned in the coming weeks. When she pops
		up after school, feel free to turn down her offer.

		As a rule, go home with your girl EVERY time she pops up. And go with the other
		girls most of the time.

		There are some special exceptions. Shiori will refuse to walk home with you
		until she's in a " very happy " to " enraptured " status. And so does Mira.
		Nozomi will make her presence known to you, without walking with her home
		when she's in a " very happy " to " enraptured " status. Especially when you're
		ignoring her.

15.5 I made two dates on the same day ! What should I do ?
	Ans : Pray ? Seriously though. You have to be really stupid to have let this happen.
		( happened to me only once :) ) My best advice is to load a saved game. You won't
		regret it as much as to decide who to date on that day. And suffer the wrath of
		the other.

		I have yet to find out whether its possible to have two dates on the same day
		on the same place. ( I can imagine the chaos ...... )

		Otherwise, read the next question.

15.6 I'm being presented with choices on where to go on my date day ! What should I do ?
	And : This happens when you made 2 or more dates that are close together. Like
		having a date today and tommorow or a having another date on the next week.
		This also happens on having two dates on the same day.

		Unless you have the particularily sticky situation as in the previous
		question. This is normal, and was added to give some sort of " a challenge ",
		" a temptation ", or " a sure fire way to piss off someone ".

		First you'll be given at least 2 choices. These choices are the date spots
		that you've planned to go to for the next 2 dates. Normally, they're
		arranged in chronological order. The date spot that you'll go first will
		be listed first. But occationally, it'll jumble up the available choices.

		So in effect, the first choice is usually safe. But to be absolutely sure,
		ask someone that can read and understand advanced japanese. Or consider using
		a Kanji dictionary. Otherwise, you'd better know what date spot been listed.

		Picking any of the listed date spots for that day. You'll now be given 2
		choices :

							- Wait
							- Go to the other date spot

		Assuming you've picked the correct date spot for that day, you should wait.
		She'll appear soon after. Should you picked the wrong date spot, then immedietly
		go to the other date spot. You'll find the girl you've dated for that day
		patiently ( or otherwise )waiting for you. More often, she'll be really, really
		angry.

		Now, in the unlikely event that you have 2 dates on the same day. Choosing
		any date spot will have the same consequence. You'll offend the other girl
		that you've planned to have a date with.

15.7 Its her birthday, should I give her a gift ?
	Ans : Depends. If thats the girl you're after, or if she's gonna bomb you, or you
		want to improve your relationship with her, then give her a gift. You always
		have the option not to give anything. Or better yet, the option to give her
		the not-so-great gift. Just remember that giving her a bad gift is more harmful
		than not giving her anything.

		To be safe, just give her a good gift.

15.8 How will I know when a girl is in love with me ?
	Ans : The most reliable way is in Yoshi's stats. A blushing iconic face is a sure
		sign. A more realistic way is to look at her face. At a " very happy " state,
		her face would already be blushing. And will continue to be until she's in an
		" enraptured " state. At this point she ought to call you by your nickname.
		But some girls would still refer to you by your first name. With a -chan suffix.

15.9 Is it really necessary to treat her with things that she likes ?
	Ans : Not really, just keep in mind the more she likes her time spent with you, the
		quicker she'll fall in love.

15.10 Do I get something for finishing the game ?
	Ans : How's about self-fulfillment and peace of mind ? Other than that, you'll have a
		new option in the Option menu. The " Omake " or bonus option. With this, you
		can view the endings of the girl or girls that you've finished with. I have yet
		to find out what will happen when you've finished the game with everyone.
		Including with Rei Injuin.

15.11 Is there some sort of significance to whatever girl Yoshi ends up with ?
	Ans : Not really. Nor should you care.

15.12 I'm a sadistic deranged friendly psychopathic maniac. I want to lose. How can I ?
	Ans : Hmmm. For you to lose, you should have your stats pretty low. And you should
		try to date someone. The best girl to date when you want to lose is Shiori.
		When shes enraptured for you but you don't meer her stat requirements, you'll
		lose ..... and you won't even get Miharu. That is if your stats are really
		low. If its high, then its likely you'll end up with Miharu.

15.13 I have read the other FAQs. And they mention something about setting Shiori's
	birthday to sometime on March. Why ?
	Ans : Although its not required for you to win Shiori, they say you'll be treated
		to a " romantic " birthday party with you and Shiori in her house should
		you set Shiori's date correctly. Though I should say that I haven't encountered
		that one on the Super Famicom version.

15.14 How about Mio's movie experience ?
	Ans : They also mention that when watching a romantic movie sometime winter, she'll
		ask you whether she looks good with glasses or not. The answer should determind
		what she looks like at the end. Either wearing glasses or should you choose
		otherwise, contact lenses. Although this event DOES occur in the Super Famicom
		version, I don't think it made a difference at the end.

15.15 Is it possible to call Miharu ?
	Ans : Its verified for the other platforms. You simply do the " speed dial " trick.
		for Miharu's phone number. But they say you'll only reach her answering machine.

15.16 Do the other girls have answering machines ?
	Ans : Maybe ?

15.17 My alter-ego's mumbling about something while viewing the Memorial Spot, what is he
	saying ?
	Ans : Personally, I don't know. Something about save games ...... I think.

15.18 Does Miharu call me ?
	Ans : Yes. She'll try to invite you to a date, but she'll act up yet again. Otherwise,
		she'll talk ( a bit ) on different topics concerning special events or so.

15.19 Is there a " nude code " or something hmmmmmm ?
	Ans : No, none, never, not in a million years. But if you're feeling etchi, I did have
		a doujinshi called " Virgin Night " that have characters that are very, very, very
		similar to the girls of Tokimeki Memorial ( I gave it to a friend a long time ago )
		Sure, there's a Shiori look-a-like, someone who looks just like Mio, Nozomi, Yumi,
		well y'know ....  The doujinshi has 12 chapters, each chapter features one girl.
		Oh yeah ... the Shiori look-a-like ( with a hairband )is featured in chapter 1.
		And yes it is very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very etchi. XXX material
		folks. Nuff said.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
16. The dating game ( and how to win it )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
16.0 I did it my way

	The following is the technique I used to win all the girls in Tokimeki Memorial.
	You should use this only when you're desperate. Otherwise I heartily recommend
	playing and experiencing the game first. You'll have more fun. Of course, if
	you're frustrated that you haven't got the girl for the umpteenth time, then by
	all means use whats being presented here.

	REMEMBER. USE THIS ONLY WHEN YOU'RE DESPERATE. YOU'LL MISS OUT ON A LOT OF FUN
	WHEN YOU THE STUFF LISTED HERE.

16.1 What I did first

	What I do first is stat-building. At this stage, you should never go on dates yet.
	Go alone on festivals and such. Whats important here is that you'll have free reign
	on what to do with your time. No one's going to bomb you at this point should you
	not go on dates. Just accept date invitations though. And if a new girl pops up,
	call up Yoshi for her phone number. Now, remember to follow the following instructions
	EXACTLY. Also, read the newspaper every season. You'll need it. This whole process
	should be done at the start of the game. And should last until August of next year.
	And remember : ALWAYS KEEP YOUR STRESS BELOW 30, AND YOUR STAMINA ABOVE 100.

	Step one : Build up your Appearance Points to 200. Yes, around 200. We will sacrifice
			a lot of it for your other stats. Never mind your other stats, or how
			you will do in exams or in school activities. You'll also meet Mira at
			this point, saving you a lot of trouble should you decide to go after her.

	Step two : Once your Appearance Points have reached 200. Start working on your Stamina.
			Keep on resting until your Stamina has reached around 200 points or more.
			Miharu will make an appearance sometime this stage.

	Step three : After which, you should now work on your Perseverance Points via the
			Exercise command. Exercise until your Perseverance has reached around 60
			points. At this point your academic attributes ought to be pretty much
			very low. And chances are, you'll already met either Yukari or Nozomi.

	Step four : After that, work on your Humanities until they reach around 60 points. Do
			the same for your Science and Art stats. Remember to increase it by one stat
			at a time. ( don't do this : Humanities - Science - Art - repeat. do it
			this way : Humanities - repeat until reached 60 - move on - Science - repeat
			until reached 60 - move on - etc ... ) Your Stamina ought to reach at the 100
			level by now. Rest until it goes back to 150.

	Step five : Remember to maintain your Appearance too. Once it dips below 120, immedietly
			push it back up to 150. Do this anytime it occurs. Also as mentioned above,
			once your Stamina hits the 100 mark, immedietly rest until it goes back
			around 150. Do this anytime once it occurs. And most importantly : MAINTAIN
			YOUR STRESS POINT TO LESS THAN 30.

	Step six : Go back to working your academic attributes. Reach around 90 points for your
			Humanities, Science, and Art. At this point, chances are good that you have
			already met either Mio, Yuina, or Ayako.

	Step seven : Your Perseverance ought to be in the 60 or 70 point range. ( via the Science
			command ) Go back to exercising and push it to around 110. Remember to
			maintain your Stamina and Appearance and Stress. And at this point your
			Athletics stat will be at around 180 to 200 or so points. At this point
			its very likely you'll meet Saki.

	Step eight : Go back to work on your academics. Reach around 120 points. Its also safe
			to assume at this point that you've met Yumi. At this point you can now go
			on to increase your General Knowledge points via the Socialize command.
			Remember that should you decide to go after Yuko, socializing is necessary.

	Step nine : Repeat the cycle, and make it around 150 points. Remember to maintain your
			Stamina and Appearance and Stress.

	Step ten : You may date whomever you want now. If you decide to push your stats even
			further, repeat the entire cycle. Just remember that it'll be harder this
			time around since you'll be actively dating girls, leaving no weekends
			free.

	There you have it. By August you may have already met or exceeded Shiori's stat
	requirements. Maybe except for General Knowledge, but thats nothing with a few more
	turns with your academics. Also, should you decide to go after Mira, feel free to
	increase your Appearance points to a ridiculous level.

	During the process, once I've reached July of the next year. I'll immedietly phone
	whoever girl I decide to win and arrange a date with her on the Summer Festival.
	This would be the start of the second part. Dating.

	This is most important. If you're going after Shiori, date her immedietly !!!
	You only have a year and a half left to win her heart. Delaying for even 2 weeks
	will almost always spell out FAILURE in the end. ( or for Miharu fans : sheer
	JOY )

16.2 What I do next

	Winning the heart of most of the girls will be easy at this point. Thats because of
	your high stats.

	I'll spend most of my initial weekends dating the girl I want to win. I also occationally
	call up Yoshi to know if there's any bomb threats. If one exists, then I'll date that
	particular girl immedietly. Returning to having steady dates with my girl. There will
	be a field trip soon, best go with your girl on this one.

	And remember, do not miss more that 3 turns without dating the girl you want to win.
	This isn't rocket science though. The moral of this paragraph is : the rewards go to
	the persitent.

	Hmm, autumn season. There will be plenty of date spots at this point of the game.
	( thats assuming you read Memorial Spot every season ) You know what to do.

	Then its winter !!! After spelunking in Rei's mansion on his Christmas party.
	Date your girl ( if possible ) on the Ski resort or the Skating rink ( girls prefer
	the Ski resort ). And yes, you should prepare for this during the first few weeks
	of December. ( thats BEFORE the Christmas party )

	By next year, arrange a date on New Years Day. Your girl ought to be in an " enraptured "
	status at this point. And will in most circumstances, ask you out instead. If not, well
	call her then !!!

	Maintain your stats. And bomb threats.

	By Valentines Day, you ought to be swamped with chocolates. Except for Shiori. ( unless
	Shiori's in a " very happy " to the " enraptured " state )

	By this year, you should go out with your girl to experience special events. Look at
	the Character section for info. You should also go out with her on special date spots
	should they become available.

	When summer comes, go first to the festival. And if you're still free, date your girl
	again on the beach or at the pool. You won't regret it.

	By the last year, you should take the college entrance exams. Deciding which college
	will be determined by your girl. If she decides to go to the First-rate university.
	You should too.

	Maintain your stats yet again.

	By March 1. You'll win her. ( if you wanted to in the first place ) Anyway. Whats
	important was the stat-building. With more or less one year devoted to make sure your
	stats are in tip top shape


16.3 What you'll do next

	After the ending sequence, you'll be asked to whether you should save the game or
	not. You should. A file called the prologue will be present the next time you start
	the game. Choose to load the prologue, and you'll start the game with having a stat
	of winning one girl. ( a score of sorts )

	The next time you won another girl, you'll still be asked whether you should save
	the game at that point. And the result is the same. A new save game file called
	the prologue will be created in one of the save game slots. Except it will now say
	that you've already won 2 girls. ( thats assuming you started the game with the
	prologue file )

	This is a convinient way of having you play the game 12 times just to collect all
	the endings. ( sheer replay value what ? )

	After finishing the game and winnning the girl of your dreams. A new option will
	appear on the OPTION menu at the title screen. Its the OMAKE option.

	It lets you view the endings the whatever girl(s) you won


	HAVE FUN !!!!
