In this guide, we are going to go over how to get Riku Nishijima's Happy End. Additionally, we will take a quick peek at how to obtain his Good and Bad Endings. As with all visual novel otome guides here, we will not be dropping any spoilers that may ruin the story for you.

Prologue

First, you will need to get through the prologue. This is a relatively short section that allows you to practice your first Pretend Time.

Below, you can see each option to choose to make it through.

  • Just because.
  • He's an idiot.
  • No, but we will.
  • Like lovers.
  • I love you too…

Episode One

Episode one is the longest in terms of choices that you will need to make. Unlike other episodes in the game, there are three Pretend Times here.

At this point, you are not officially locked into Riku's route, which means that you will interact with the other love interests here.
