This page covers May ?? (probably the 16th), which is an optional scene with Takato, and May 17, the day that Yuki faces off against Joker in front of the entire school. May 17 is the earliest that you can get an ending... not a good one, of course!

When you reach the end, there will be a link so you can continue to the next portion of the common route.

May ?? ~ only if you visited the library on May 14 AND asked for Takato's recommendation

May ??

Note: The date is given simply as "a few days later" but since it happens before the scene dated May 17, this has to be May 16.

Yuki: Oh, Takato-san, you're here.
Takato: Asahina, you're here early today.
Yuki: I came as soon as my classes ended.
Yuki: More importantly, I read ZombieChan...
Takato: Oh, what about The Summer of Stella Maris?
Yuki: Sorry, I haven't read that one yet...
Yuki: It was a bit hard to read.
Takato: Hmm... After all, the text was a bottleneck.
Yuki: More importantly, there's ZombieChan, ZombieChan.
Takato: What's the matter? Looking like that, was it disappointing?
Yuki: Uh-uh. It was really interesting! ...But.
Yuki: When's the next one coming out?
Takato: The month after next.
Yuki: That far!? Seriously?
Takato: Are you interested in the continuation?
Yuki: I am. That Last named Uzuka, she's not dead, is she?
Takato: Who knows...? Since she's the heroine, perhaps she's fine.
Yuki: But Miyu died so easily in the second volume. I wouldn't put anything past this author.
Yuki: Since the first half was an oddly heartwarming story of school life, I was completely fooled...
Takato: Well, but since Uzuka is a zombie, it's not a problem even if she dies.
Yuki: It is! That's too sad! Even though she's so desperate, she's chased around because she's a zombie.
Takato: It can't be helped, can it? Because she's a zombie.
Yuki: Urgh... that's cold...
Yuki: It's because there's people like you, Takato-san, that Uzuka can't be happy.
Yuki: Geez, it's one shock after another, with Rururi from before.
Takato: Oh, so you finished reading it.
Yuki: I can't believe it was actually the grandpa who transformed...
Takato: It was aiming to be unpredictable, but that was a complete failure.
Yuki: Ahhh... and I thought she was cute...
Yuki: If at least Uzuka doesn't get happiness, I'll never recover...
Takato: You're very committed.
Yuki: That's why I don't like reading. It's kind of tiring.
Takato: Aren't you just empathizing too much with the characters?
Yuki: I wonder...
Takato: Will you give up on reading the continuation?
Yuki: No way. I'll read it, I'm interested.
Takato: I see.
Yuki: Umm... But if Uzuka dies, I'll be depressed...
Yuki: Or rather, the main character should be saved quickly...
Takato: Asahina.
Takato: I think you're a good reader for properly reading the book.
Yuki: Really?
Takato: Yes. It's very wonderful.
Takato: You'll do fine.
Yuki: Ah...
(Yuki: It seems like he kind of liked that.)
(Yuki: Is he glad?)

May 17

Yuki: Today's classes successfully completed too!
Okaken: Hi, Asahina-kun. You're in high spirits as usual.
Okaken: How about it? Today, join our occult research association...
Yuki: I told you, I can't because I have student council work.
Yuki: You're awfully dedicated every day.
Yuki: You should invite someone else, not me.
Okaken: I'll never give up on you.
Yuki: ...But I'm telling you, I'm not joining.
Tomo: *yaaawn* Mph.
Tomo: Hm? ...Is class over?
Yuki: Every class is over.
Tomo: *yawn* ...I had a good sleep today too.
Yuki: Don't you spend less time awake than sleeping?
Yuki: You must not care if you get held back.
Tomo: Yeah, yeah, I'll stay awake enough not to.
*announcement tune*
Joker: Hi, everyone in Bell Liberty School. Representing Durak, it's Jokawa Kiyotada, better known as Joker.
Yuki: Hm?
Joker: We're about to hold the usual student assembly.
Joker: Which means, all students gather in the auditorium within 30 minutes.
Joker: So, see you there.
Yuki: What was that just now?
Okaken: What, Asahina-kun? Weren't you listening?
Yuki: No, I heard it, but...
Yuki: Usual student assembly?
Okaken: Exactly! These announcements are famous at BL School!
Okaken: It's a signal that Joker is holding a student assembly!!
Yuki: Famous... does that mean this happens often?
Okaken: That's right!!
Okaken: Durak periodically holds events like this to entertain the students.
Okaken: And, it's not limited to events like student assemblies or welcome parties like the other day.
Okaken: They even manage a social networking service for the students.
Yuki: Social...?
Tomo: It's an SNS for the students of the school.
Yuki: Wow, that's amazing.
Okaken: The school SNS is an extremely beneficial place where you can get important information about school life.
Yuki: Hmm... I see.
Yuki: Still, everyone seems kind of excited.
Yuki: There's even people rushing out of the classroom...
student: Are you going to bet? I'm putting today's homework on Joker.
student: That's not fair. I'm betting on Joker too!
student: What? Then that's not much of a bet.
Yuki: What do they mean, betting?
student: *glance*
(Yuki: Hm? He looked this way.)
student: Anyway, it's probably useless.
Yuki: What's useless?
student: Oh no, he heard.
student: Uh, nothing... Oh, Kasahara! Are you going along too?
student: I'm betting math homework.
Tomo: ...I don't care. I'm not interested in betting.
student: Tch, you're unenthusiastic as usual. Let's go.
Yuki: What is that?
Yuki: Hey, Tomo. What did they mean about betting just now?
Yuki: Does it have something to do with Joker-san's announcement?
Tomo: Umm...
Tomo: ...It's annoying to explain.
Yuki: Tomo, you're so...
Okaken: They probably learned about it on the SNS beforehand!
Okaken: Asahina-kun!
Okaken: A picture is worth a thousand words. It's faster to go see than to ask him for an explanation.
Okaken: Then, let's hurry to the auditorium too!

Yuki: Amazing. Everyone's really here.
Okaken: Naturally, Asahina-kun.
Okaken: There's no one at this school who would ignore a summons from Joker.
Yuki: Joker-san is really amazing.
??: Oh, I found Ace-kun.
Yuki: Arata-san.
Maro: Kuku.
Yuki: And Maro. Hello.
Arata: Hello.
Arata: I'm cheering for you. Do your best.
Yuki: Cheering?
Arata: Oh. Reo-Reo came too. That's rare.
Yuki: Ah. Arata-san?
Yuki: It's no good. There's too many people and I lost sight of him...
Yuki: What was that just now about cheering?
(Yuki: And I'm also worried about that talk of betting in the classroom...)
Kuya: So here you are!
Yuki: Kuya-san, Takato-san.
Kuya: Excuse me!
Kuya: I was looking for you. I'm glad I met you before the assembly started.
Yuki: What do you mean?
Takato: You are the focus of this student assembly.
Yuki: Me?
Yuki: Is it another welcome party or something?
Kuya: If only it were.
Takato: In a certain sense, it is.
Takato: Since it's Joker, probably...
Joker: Well, then, it looks like the gallery has assembled.
Yuki: Joker-san, he's on the stage?
student: He's here! Joker!
student: I've been waiting!!
Joker: Then, shall we begin a fun student assembly?
Joker: Sorry to get right to the point, but new Ace, Asahina Yuki-kun. Will you come up on stage?
Yuki: Me?
Sonoda: You're the star today.
Yuki: The star? Me?
Sonoda: That's right, you.
Sonoda: The audience is waiting impatiently for you. Anyway, go up to the stage!
(Yuki: Everyone's looking this way.)
(Yuki: ...I guess I have to go.)
Yuki: I'll be right back.
Kuya: I'll go with you.
Chiba: Only Asahina.
Kuya: Are you saying it'd be inconvenient if I went with him?
Chiba: You weren't summoned.
Sonoda: So you watch from here, Sagimori-san.
Kuya: What are you going to do this time?
Sonoda: Are you worried about the new Ace?
Kuya: Considering that's happened so far, of course.
Sonoda: Well, that's true.
Sonoda: But being so worried, that means you don't trust Yuki-kun.
Sonoda: The new Ace-kun that your ex-Ace chose.
Takato: You're the ones we don't trust, not him.
Takato: You should try remembering everything that's happened between Joker and the former Ace so far.
Takato: With that alone, it's only natural to be anxious that Joker may have some scheme.
Chiba: ...Bastard.
Chiba: Are you mocking Joker-sama?
Takato: I'm merely stating the truth.
Chiba: Tch...
Yuki: Chiba-san! Please wait!!
Chiba: ...What?
Yuki: Please don't start fighting!
Yuki: I'm going.
Takato: But...
Yuki: I'm the one who was summoned.
Yuki: I don't know what's going to happen, but I'll be fine, it'll work out somehow.
Takato: ...Very well.
Yuki: Then, it'd be bad to keep him waiting, I'm going.
Kuya: Yuki...
Sonoda: Good, just like that. That'll make Kiyo happy.

Yuki: Sorry to keep you waiting.
Joker: You're here.
Joker: Then, let's begin.
Joker: Now, everyone. We're beginning the main event!!
student: Joker-san! I've been waiting!!
student: What are you gonna show us today!?
Joker: Today's event is a decisive battle between me, as a representative of Durak, and the new Ace, Asahina Yuki-kun!
Yuki: Whaa!? Decisive battle!?
Joker: Right, a decisive battle.
Joker: As everyone knows, the other day, there was a change of student council president.
Joker: The succession of Ace occured through a transfer of the student council president's armband.
Joker: Because of that, he, Asahina Yuki-kun, became Bell Liberty School's new Ace.
Joker: Durak will confirm that fact.
Joker: But he is a new student who just came to school.
Joker: He's a complete unknown, is he really fit to be the Ace...?
Joker: I think I'd like to find out here.
Yuki: ...
(Yuki: Joker-san's argument is reasonable.)
(Yuki: I didn't really come to this school because there's anything special about me.)
(Yuki: I can understand that he wants to test me.)
(Yuki: ...But why now?)
(Yuki: He even gave me a welcome party.)
Joker: Which means, I think Durak will formally propose a match with him.
Yuki: A match...
Yuki: Joker-san, a match, what are you going to do?
Joker: Play a game with me.
Yuki: A game?
Joker: Yes. A fun game.
Joker: But we won't be playing around like during the welcome party. Let's make it a little more serious...
Yuki: Huh...?
(Yuki: Joker-san's expression... it's different from his usual jokes...)
Joker: Of course, it won't be just a match.
Joker: If you win, I'll improve working conditions for the student council.
Joker: And I'll open the cafeteria to the student council, and allow the student council to participate in school discussions.
Yuki: Really?
Joker: I wouldn't lie.
Joker: Only, you'll have to stake the Ace armband.
Yuki: Wha...?
Joker: It's only natural, isn't it?
Joker: The match I'm talking about isn't just a game.
Joker: In order to reap the rewards of winning, it's only natural that you have to pay something.
Joker: If I win, I'll take your rights as the Ace.
Joker: If you win, the student council can once again make decisions regarding the management of the school.
Joker: You'll be released from your life of plain udon at the cafeteria and daily chores.
Joker: Not just you, but all the other members of the student council too.
Joker: That's not a bad deal, is it?
Yuki: ...
Joker: Of course, I won't go back on my promise.
Joker: All the students here will be witnesses to the outcome of this match.
Joker: Sound good, everyone!?
student: Yeah!!
student: I'll make sure of it!!
student: Don't run away, new Ace-san!
Yuki: Ugh...
Kuya: Yuki! He's provoking you!
Takato: He can't hear you over this din.
Kuya: We have to stop it...
Chiba: I won't let you interfere.
Sonoda: Now, now, Sagimori-sempai. Have a little faith in your Ace.
Kuya: Shut up! We have faith in Yuki!
Kuya: But who was the one who tried to cheat that day?
Kuya: Besides, what Joker is talking about isn't just a reward.
Kuya: What kind of match is it without explaining what you're going to do? It's cowardly!
Chiba: That doesn't matter.
Chiba: Anyway, I was told not to let you through here.
Chiba: If you say you're going to push your way through, I'll stop you by force.
Kuya: Grr...
Joker: What will you do? Asahina-kun.
student: Have the match! New Ace!!
student: Do you value the position of Ace!?
student: It doesn't matter! Anyway, the student council just does chores!!
Yuki: Urgh...
Joker: Why are you so hesitant? Weren't you bragging that your luck is better than others'?
Joker: Or was all that boasting about your luck just talk in the end?
Yuki: ...That's not really what I meant.
Joker: Wow.
Yuki: Besides, I understand that you want to test me, Joker-san.
Joker: You say you understand my feelings?
Yuki: I'm still a first year and on the day I came to school, I suddenly became student council president.
Yuki: I think it's natural that you're uneasy about me.
Joker: Uneasy... huh?
Yuki: Only, I feel it's a little wrong to have a match because of that...
Joker: Then you don't intend to accept the match?
Yuki: No, that's not it.
Joker: ...Heh heh.
Yuki: Will you really improve the condition of the student council?
Joker: Of course.
Yuki: If it's a match that can improve the state of the student council, then...
Yuki: As student council president, I think it's something I have to do.
Yuki: So...
Yuki: I accept your challenge!!
Joker: Now you're talking.
Joker: Everyone! The new Ace says he accepts the match!
student: Alright!
student: Great. I bet on Joker.
student: Me too!
student: Me too.
student: I'm fine with Joker too.
student: Hey now. At least one person bet on the new Ace.
Yuki: Haha...
(Yuki: But it can't be helped.)
(Yuki: Since I'm a new student who just got here.)
(Yuki: Joker-san is this school's central figure, and really popular.)
(Yuki: Still...)
(Yuki: I want to win.)
(Yuki: This is frustrating, and besides...)
(Yuki: It's for Kuya-san and Takato-san,)
(Yuki: And for that person who gave me this Ace armband,)
(Yuki: And to enjoy the school from now on...)
(Yuki: If I don't, it would be inexcusable to the director who called me here.)
(Yuki: So, no matter what...)
Joker: Asahina-kun. That resolute attitude is wonderful.
Joker: I'm truly happy that you're taking it seriously.
Joker: So, to show my respect, I'll make the contest your specialty: a test of luck.
Yuki: A test of luck?
Joker: This.
Yuki: Cards?
Joker: Yes. Fair and square, with no tricks.
Joker: The match will be blackjack. Do you want to hear the rules?

(decision #1)

(decision #1a: YES)
Joker: For blackjack, the one who has a hand with the sum closest to 21 wins.
Joker: The Jack, Queen, and King are counted as ten, and the Ace can be counted as one or eleven.
Joker: If you want to add to your hand, select 'hit.' If you don't need any more, select 'stand.'
Joker: If you have a 'bust' where the sum of your hand goes over 21, you lose.
Joker: Normally in the case of a draw, the dealer, me, would be the winner. But this time, I'll let you have another match.
Joker: Got it? Then let's begin now.


(decision #1b: NO)
Yuki: I don't need to!
Joker: Then let's begin.

[blackjack minigame]

if you lose blackjack

Yuki: ...I lost?
Joker: Right, you lose.
Joker: Your vaunted luck didn't amount to much.
Joker: I thought you would entertain me a little more.
Joker: Too bad.
Yuki: Oh no...
Joker: So, will you hand over the Ace armband?
Joker: Ex-Ace-kun.
Yuki: ...Yes.
(Yuki: Thus, the curtain closed on my few days as student council president of BL School.)
(Yuki: After that, terrible things happened at the school, but it's not something I can talk about.)
(Yuki: Once I stopped being student council president, I couldn't really do anything about it.)
(Yuki: Now, I'm having an ordinary school life...)

Ending 20: Relinquishing being the Ace
(bad ending #1)

Note: This is also a split, but the rest of the game continues from here, so I'm just presenting it as normal text.

Yuki: ...I ...won?
Joker: Yeah, you win. Congratulations.
Yuki: Woohoo, I won...! Kuya-san, Takato-san, I...

CG: Kuya hugs Yuki
Kuya: Congratulations! Yuki!!
Yuki: Uwah!?
Kuya: Amazing! You're amazing!! You beat Joker!!
Yuki: K, Kuya-san... You're too happy...
*Takato joins the CG*
Takato: No, it's truly magnificent.
Yuki: Takato-san.
Takato: Unfortunately, the former Ace lost all of the matches when he was challenged by Joker.
Takato: So now, it's magnificent that you've demonstrated your strength in front of all the students.
Yuki: Oh no, magnificent is...
Takato: Thank you. I'm also gratified.
Takato: You really did well.
Yuki: R, really?
Kuya: Masatsugu is right! You're awesome!
Kuya: Now no one can say you're not fit to be the Ace!
Joker: Just as I'd expect. You should be proud, beating me who's never lost.
end CG

Joker: As you can see, this game has ended in his victory. Everyone, give the new Ace a big hand!
student: Congratulations!
student: Good job!!
student: Dammit!! This is the first time I've lost betting on Joker-san!!
Yuki: Uwah...
Joker: With this, you've proven your good luck.
Yuki: Good luck?
Yuki: Then, was this match really to test my luck?
Joker: Well, who knows?
Joker: So, Durak formally acknowledges Asahina Yuki, who splendidly beat me, as the new Ace.
Joker: First of all, Eiji. Please open the cafeteria.
Sonoda: ...
Joker: And, the student council can participate in the next meeting.
Yuki: Yes!
Joker: Then, you're all dismissed!
Chiba: Joker-sama lost...?
Chiba: It can't be...
Chiba: Joker-sama!
Joker: What is it, Hayato?
Chiba: ...Is this really okay?
Chiba: Myself can't accept it...!
Joker: I accept the result.
Chiba: But...
Joker: Rather, I think this makes it more interesting.
Sonoda: What ridiculous thing are you saying, Kiyo!? If you'd done the usual...
Joker: I took the match seriously as always.
Joker: Besides, as long as he keeps winning, I can challenge him again.
Sonoda: Today isn't a game like usual...
Joker: Eiji!
Joker: The match is already over. Okay?
Sonoda: Urk...
Sonoda: ...
Joker: Bye.
Sonoda: Tch...
Yuki: Woohoo!
Yuki: With this, starting with tomorrow's lunch, I'm free from udon!!
Takato: However...
Takato: I'm worried that Joker lost so easily.
Kuya: That's right.
Kuya: But look!
Yuki: Huh? The audience?
Yuki: Oh...
student: He's amazing.
student: This is the first time I've seen Joker lose a match during an assembly...
student: Like, when did the student council president change?
student: Hey, hey. There was even a welcome party, wasn't there? Held by Durak.
student: After all, it wasn't fake information about his good luck in that newspaper.
Yuki: Everyone is looking at me...
Arata: Congratulations, Ace-kun.
Yagami: You weren't too bad.
Yuki: Arata-san! And Yagami!
Kuya: What do you think, our Ace?
Yuki: I...
Yuki: It's awesome! I'm suddenly really excited!
Kuya: Excited?
Yuki: Yes!
Yuki: Well, everyone is looking at me and saying all sorts of things like I'm amazing.
Yuki: I see... so that's it...
Yuki: Kuya-san. I was really happy when you said "you're this school's student council president."
Yuki: I kind of felt like I had become a little bit special.
Kuya: Yeah.
Yuki: But that was like a coincidence, so I didn't understand anything.
Yuki: Even now, I don't really understand it, but...
Yuki: Before, I was really annoyed that no one supported me.
Yuki: I knew it was only natural, but I thought I still didn't like it.
student: Do your best! New Ace!
student: Make our school life really fun.
Yuki: So it makes me really happy that everyone recognizes me, even a little.
Kuya: I see.
Yuki: I'll do my best. As student council president!
Kuya: Yeah!
Takato: We'll also support you even more than before.
Yuki: Yes! Thank you!
Kuya: Then first, shall we have a greeting from the new Ace to everyone?
Yuki: The mic?
Takato: Everyone is expecting it.
Yuki: Oh...
Yuki: Right!
(Yuki: Bell Liberty School.)
(Yuki: It's a special school where students with some special ability are gathered from all over the country.)
(Yuki: Everyone is unique and there are people who are a bit weird among them.)
(Yuki: This is my school, and I'm the student council president.)
(Yuki: The Ace...!)
Yuki: Hello, I'm Asahina Yuki. I became the new Ace when I accepted the armband from the former Ace.
Yuki: Compared to everyone else at this school, I may not be special...
Yuki: But I'll do my very best, so I look forward to working with you!!
(Yuki: Like this, my school life...)
(Yuki: My school life as Ace really began!!)
