The MC has 6 main parameters in-game. Each parameter corresponds to a certain guy, so depending on who you’re aiming for, you need to raise that stat in order to increase his affection for you.

Increases affection for: Senri Shiki
Increases affection for: Takuma Ichijou
Work (flower insignia)

Experience (gold, boxy thing)

This is necessary if you want to gain fast affection boosts with the guy you’re going for. To do so, choose the “Decorate” option during your day class. Note that money you’ve earned and clothes that you’ve purchased carry over to the next game, so make sure you continue from your saved file when starting a new game.
There are multiple endings for the 6 main characters. They each have:
- A romantic ending
- A good friend ending
- A bad ending (low affection)
There are also other miscellaneous endings. (For example when you have high affection for 2 characters at the same time.)
