Subtitled: Eww, Wakaouji, or How ‘He’s just a friend’ cost me the love of a good man.
I’ve been playing Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side 2nd Season nearly non-stop on my DS for the past couple of days. I got it way back when it first came out, but I didn’ t like the guys so I kept playing TMGS1 instead.
Finally this week I decided to give it a proper chance and dove straight in. I picked Hikami Itaru because he’s supposedly the cousin of my darling Himuro-sensei from the first game (who you can see at the Aquarium in this game at certain times, but somehow Hikami never goes to say hi).
So anyway, things were going well enough with Hikami. His voice is dorkish but he’s a nice guy once you get to know him. I had my elegant wardrobe, I worked on my Academics and Social, I only took him to his favorite spots like the museum, everything was swell.
Within a year he was all over me like a rash. Every poke would yield a spurt of red hearts. Almost every date ended with a ‘make-out session’ a.k.a. daisekkin mode. It’s always the bookish type that make the biggest perverts, you notice. So! Anyway! Within 1 year he was all ready, tokimeki mode go! I decided to give some other people attention. I started going on Wakaouji’s school trips, dating him on the side and got him all the way up to tokimeki as well.
Now, I don’t like Wakaouji. His goofy schtick is just so fake, he looks lame, his voice is weak, and for a teacher he’s all too quick to fall in love with me. Pedo! The spot with the guy in black where he speaks English is the only good part, everything else was blah. What I really have against him is that he’s no match for Himuro-sensei in any department at all. To be honest I was just chatting him up for lack of anything better to do.
But then disaster struck! I got careless and started getting friendly with Onoda Chiyomi! That witch! That cow! The one’s that’s after Hikami too! That one! My carelessness led her to commence Rival Mode. To avoid that, I told her “Oh no, it’s not like that between me and Hikami!” Bam! Hikami’s affection dropped all the way from tokimeki to “friendly.” Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Drat! And this happened with barely 4 months to go, in November of the last year! I struggled and struggled to build up his affection again (making damn Onoda my rival anyway) – dates, the New Year’s shrine, Valentine’s chocolate, anything! – while studiously avoiding Wakaouji, but it was no use. >_< *sigh*
So in the end it was Wakaouji who met me in the lighthouse claiming I taught him what love was and everything. Guhh… I almost turned him down but half a loaf is better than no bread so whatever. Our future states we don’t see each other that much because I’m in university and he’s still teaching (and doubtless preying on other innocent young ladies like me), and that’s for the best.
Long post huh? It’s fueled by disgust. Next I’m giving Hikami a break and going for either Saeki or Hariya. Will report later.
