How do you think befriending the rivals could benifet or hurt ayano? Obviously they wont just leave after their week is done and if they're friends with ayano won't the trie to help her. Helping her seems like a cute thought.
I always liked the idea of Ayano slowly but surely recovering from her empty state as she’s exposed to more sincere love and kindness. But here are some of the possible benefits that will also follow in befriending rivals
If you befriend a rival, she will text you once a week to see how you’re doing with a photo of herself as well.
Osana: Taro now knows who’s Ayano is, and is on good terms with her. He will now forgive her for small mistakes, like carry weapons, laughing, bloody clothes, etc.. as long as you have a sincere apology. Osana gives you a matching black kitty keychain as a token. This will now be present on your phone. Info-chan will not be pleased with you, however. You may want to watch your back…
Amai: Befriending her means you now have the full trust of the cooking club. Not only that, but you now have full access to more weapons and possibly poisoning a rival’s food in the future. Amai gives you an apron that you can wear as a token.
Kizana: You now have the full trust of the drama club. You will have a reputation boost of 10+ because people will believe you are charismatic and popular. You will have access to masks, costumes, gloves, and other potential weapons. It will be less creepy if you wear bloody clothes. Kizana gives you one of her beloved rose hair-ties as a token (customizable). Kokona also gives you a big hug.
Oka: You now have full trust of the occult club. You have access to spell books and potential weapons, and possible minions. Some students may find you a bit odd to befriend the occult kids. Oka gives you her favorite book as a token, which can come in handy later. You now have gained a newfound sensitivity to the supernatural, which could come in handy later…
Asu: You now have full trust of the sports club. You have access to use the pool and gym at any time of the day, and seeing you with a baseball bat or any sports related weapon wouldn’t be too much concern. Asu gives you an old track jacket of hers, which you can wear.
Muja: You will now have access to the infirmary at all times of the day. This will give you a plethora of poisons you can use, but once a week the nurse will ask you to watch over the infirmary for an hour while she takes her break. Students will now believe you to be a helpful person they can rely on, increasing your reputation by 5. Muja will give you the name tag you have to wear on the job. You may also wear this outside of your job.
Mida: You now have full trust of the staff, not including the headmaster. You now have the option of having Mida tutor you privately once a week in certain subjects, giving a boost in the area you choose (excluding PE). Some students may now think you’re a teacher’s pet. She will also give you a tube of red lipstick that she considers her favorite brand. When Ayano wears this, her seduction goes up.
Osoro: You now have full trust and the backup of the delinquents. If someone is picking a fight with you or another student, give Osoro a call and she’ll send a lackey or sometimes she’ll come over herself and deal with the student. However, your reputation will go down -5 because students will think you do illegal things. Osoro will give you her coat, which you can wear to school. If you haven’t befriended Mida however, teachers will not allow you to wear it during class hours.
Hanako: You now have Taro’s full trust. He will occasionally stop and ask how you are doing in the hallways. Every once in a while he will make small talk with Ayano, but a mini game will pop up where you have to help Ayano keep her cool. Hanako will give you a matching pink heart clip you can wear. Taro will always smile and comment on how cute you look when you wear it.
Megami: You will now have the whole schools trust, and the support of Saikou Corp. Depending on if you helped clear the Journalist’s name and had Ryoba arrested, Megami may also award/honor you for your help in a case that was wrongfully determined. Megami will give you a special friendship bracelet that is customizable, but will always be seen on Megami.
