/The character profiles do not work as they are not fully coded yet./
Ichigo is just an average, teenage girl who has always lived in a very small town. She has always disliked the name that her weird parents gave her and to make matters even worse, Ichigo is actually allergic to strawberries! Being teased about it by boys ever since she was a little kid, she’s never had much luck when it came to love. Now Ichigo’s in her first year of high school and wants a real man in her life. She already has her eyes set on 3 particular guys. Now all Ichigo has to do is just pick one to go after, right? Wrong! Nothing could be worse than dating your best friend’s ex, or perhaps dating the boy your best friend is currently in love with? Or maybe, to go even further into the subject of “worse”, dating the guy whom the entire female student body at your school have been drooling over.
It is up to you to decide Ichigo's fate, so, who will you choose?

Ichigo: The heroine (You)
Depending on your choices throughout the game, you are able to slowly build up Ichigo's personality to either be the classic "Angelic" heroine, the "Badass/Rebel" heroine or even the "Humorous/Laid-back" heroine! It is completely up to you to decide how the heroine's personality will be like. The personality quiz that takes place at gamestart changes the scenarios and options of the choices you will have, but that does not mean Ichigo's personality development will end there, even after the quiz you will continue to develop it as the story advances via choices.
Naomi: The heroine's popular and outgoing best friend since childhood.
Like Daichi and Kazuo, Naomi has always been by Ichigo's side and has always supported Ichigo in all of her life decisions - except for the one she's about to make about love! Popular among the boys, she can be pretty fake and arrogant around those she does not trust/like but can be a good, protective friend when she needs to be - although let's just say love isn't exactly the topic you'd want to ask her advice about~ Will you date her ex, romance the man she's been in love with ever since she was a little girl or stick by her side though thick and thin?
Daichi: The heroine's
Foul-mouthed and a little too much to handle, he is the closest "thing" Ichigo has had to having a boyfriend (Much to her dismay). Not counting those ugly personality traits, Daichi can be caring and always puts those he cares about first...or does he? He is surely someone you can rely on when you're having a very bad day or maybe he's just the damn worst? Can your feelings reach his black-clouded heart? He is Naomi's current crush, so his route is a bit rival-ish!
Kazuo: The heroine's
Kazuo had his way with women at Akihiko High, that is, until Hiroki decided to transfer into their grade from the overseas. Poor Kazuo can't help but see Hiroki as a possible threat and enemy as he is always up to any challenge Hiroki has to offer. At first glance, Kazuo seems like a total womanizer, but look a bit closer and maybe you'll be able to see something completely different. Kazuo's route is at first a bit of a love 'rectangle' involving both Hiroki and Naomi, but things smooth out later on in his story. Since he has a bit of history with Naomi, be prepared for some major angst-y moments.
Hiroki: The heroine's school "Prince."
Recently transferred from the overseas, it didn't take long for the young, good-looking Hiroki to became known among his peers as Akihiko High's new school prince. With his godly good looks, major brains, and, oh, let's not forget that flirty but snarky little attitude of his, is their anything he can't do?
