story intro

Ninosuke is the guy who gets Yuki's story started, but what about Ninosuke himself? When he was a first year, he joined the student council along with Kuya and Takato, and things went well until Joker arrived in their second year. Joker formed a separate group called Durak and challenged Ninosuke to various contests, goading him into betting the student council's authority, then cheating in order to steal it. Ninosuke fell for this routine over and over, and eventually Durak had stolen all the rights of the student council.

Ninosuke didn't return after spring break. No one knows why, but they suspect he's hiding out of shame over losing all the authority of the student council. But he suddenly reappears on the day Yuki arrives at school and gives him the armband, making Yuki the new student council president. But... Ninosuke disappeared again right after that, and hasn't been seen since.

Play Kuya's route to discover the real reason for Ninosuke's disappearance.


Ninosuke is, frankly, annoying. He's dramatic and self-centered, preying upon Kuya's kindness in order to boost his own self-esteem. He's a coward who's afraid of Joker, and he runs away after losing repeatedly in contests against Joker. Yuki's success as the Ace makes Ninosuke angry and jealous, sending him into a spiral of self-pity.

He's not all bad, though. Maybe. sorry my friends, I'm not a fan

Sagimori Kuya - close friend
Kuya considers Ninosuke to be his best friend. Unfortunately, Ninosuke often takes advantage of Kuya's kindness, expecting more and more from him without offering any consideration in return. Kuya doesn't seem to mind, though, and spends much of the game trying to find his missing friend. Ninosuke plays a major role in Kuya's route, especially at the end.

Takato Masatsugu - close friend
Ninosuke was the student council president before Yuki came to school, so he's good friends with Kuya and Takato. We don't see much interaction between Takato and Ninosuke (Ninosuke is more closely tied to Kuya) but we know that Takato is the one who has been leaving food for Ninosuke to eat while he's hiding out at school, pretending to be missing.
