The little sister thing is creepy, plus the fact that he is making an entire game about sexualized high school girls :phftt: Does anyone remember how he said things like his ideal girlfriend is "malleable" and "pure" or whatever? 

Like when you think about it is there even a real reason for this game to be set in a high school, aside from the fact that that's probably the #1 cliche anime setting?

It actually might be more interesting if they were in a college, workplace, or somewhere else. High school is way too overdone in anime. But that's just my two cents. 

PS: Is this game a parody of its own genre and characters, or are they supposed to be serious?! I still don't know. Like do we take the characters seriously and be like "Oh yeah these characters are developed interesting people with life stories" or are we supposed to be like "haha they are a walking meme, lol XD" 

It's so sad that he actually changed it but still messed it up. He made an update with the characters that they are all at least 18 years old now (even the younger students) so it's not a high school anymore. I think the issue was that he wanted to worm his way out of people telling him that he's a creep if he encourages people to make lewd art of Ayano who originally was like 14 or 15. So she was aged up to 18 (that's her current canon age). So she doesn't even attend High School anymore because she's too old for it. The Akademi High School will be Akademi Academy or something stupid in the final build. (source of him saying it will not be called high school but academy in the final build is here: https://twitter.com/YandereDev/status/657337765479059456)

Lmao wut. College students do not wear uniforms or have homeroom classes and nonsense like that. 

Or at least as far as I know, perhaps things are different in Japan.

That just sounds a lot like a cop-out to me... if he wants this to be a college environment, perhaps there should be separate buildings, characters have their own outfits, and classes have different subjects. 

The kids basically have majors by now anyways, like art or agriculture.

However I feel like he won't make this a real "college" environment. It's going to be basically a high school but "oh they're all 18+ so it's okay for me to sexualize them~~"

Am I the only one that thinks it could be fun if senpai was actually a manipulating and decieving asshole? Maybe it could eventually explain how he is able to get all these different types of girls to fall for him. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

I think that would actually be an interesting twist. Since most dating sim/harem games are tailored towards the player saying what their lover wants to hear to win their love. It would also add way more to what little personality senpai has. 

I remember that someone posted the trailer for another game here where the player controls a yandere girl in love with her senpai and when she's going mental and is breaking into his house to do something to him she figures out that he's a yandere himself because there were murder weapons in his room. i think a twist like that would be very cool for yansim, but at this point it just feels like alex doesn't care. and even if he'd think of smth exciting he'd spoil the plot twist in one of his YT videos anyway.

 

yeah, I’ve seen Jay play the game. I believe it was called “Don’t notice me”.

 I got the same impression but the twist is that the guy who you think is yandere isn’t and the girl comes off as more of a stalker than a yandere. So, kind of a shame. But it could work with Yandere Sim. 

I remember there was a point where masks were added to the game and yanderedev said that senpai would take off the mask to unveil Ayano. But to me that contradicts his personality. This would suggest that Senpai is heroic and shouldn’t be threatened by danger. Yet, senpai is designed to flee during danger, remark of Ayano’s weird behaviour and to be easily intimated.

I feel that yandev is trying to make us assume a personality for senpai. But all we get is that he’s a loner bookworm who’s apparently a nice guy and is attractive to the rivals. But we don’t know anything about him. We don’t know his favourite classes, hobbies friends or interests. Why can’t he write a personality for senpai? It could be as basic, anime tropey as he likes, just let it be something to give reason for the player to pursue him.

Typical harem main character, makes the entire female cast fall in love with him just because he's nice and at least one of the female characters says something like "it's the first time someone treats me with kindness" to justify the crush on him. Like, no! Alex is just projecting himself on Senpai tbh. Out of all YanSim characters, Senpai is the least interesting and yet he managed to make eleven girls fall in love with him - even his little sister!!!!!! I support 100% the option to choose the love interest for Ayano, because literally everyone is more interesting and has more personality than Senpai. 

... And the little sister being a rival thing is very creepy.

 

I remember there was a point where yandere dev said that he wanted Hanako to be jailbaity? (It said so at least on the Yandere Sim wiki) and I do believe it’s a trope in anime where brothers and sisters have a romantic interest. I’m glad he changed it to an overprotective sibling relationship (even if her being a rival is questionable), but I can’t help but wonder what ideas he had of Hanako originally...

Also maybe it’s just me, but I felt that Megami is designed to not be romantically interested in senpai. If you look at the rival video, she isn’t blushing and she says something along the lines “I think someone is stalking you”. Making it sound more of a duty.

It's not different in Japan. A lot of young adults like college because the pressure is less than high school and its standardized tests and because they can wear what they like to class.

IIRC, Alex's attempt to justify his school uniform fetish on "college" students was something like "they're all 18+, really! They just all failed high school, so Akdemi exists so they can pay and role play high school students instead of going to college or getting a job!"

Most of the entertainment value now comes from Alex trying to fix plot holes with a shovel. And when that doesn't work, he breaks out the back hoe and keeps digging.

Alex needs to remove the teacher and nurse rivals. It's just as fucking bad as having Hanako as a rival. Speaking of Hanako, if my younger sister told me to never date anyone, I'd tell her to quit being so weird. I mean, Alex has shown us that Senpai hates weirdos. Why would that suddenly change for Hanako? No matter how you put it, Hanako is super weird.

Also, yayyy I just accidentally activated shipgirl while playing!!!!

Shouldn't there be a time limit? Like to activate shipgirl you need type in 5 seconds? How did I activate it 12 minutes after playing?

Hanako might not be a love rival but she still seems kinda weird considering she'll ask Taro to never date a girl and that she'll become the only girl in his life. Still sounds kind of creepy but in disguise to me. Also it sounds kind of stupid that we'll get a gameover if that actually happens. He could just promise it to her but still see other girls. Hanako just feels like a weak plot device to me because everything about her being a rival and Taro never dating a girl makes no sense at all. And considering she is one of the actual final rivals this is just so anti-climatic.

 

It may just be because I don't have any siblings, but I find the idea of someone(especially at Hanako's age) being that possesive of their sibling to the point where they don't want them to have a girlfriend is disturbing.

characters are not 18+ , it's just an excuse

 

that makes everyone a senior , which is impossible and if senpai isn't older than Yan Chan , why would she even call him senpai? 

Also Hanako is definitely not 18 .

We are not falling for Alex' bullshit

I've been trying to play the game to test some things out, but I have a quick question, has anyone else playing this game (or has someone who's already played the game in the past) start having trouble with walking and moving the camera simultaneously? I'm redownloading the game once again (because I had to delete and reinstall after last time just to get the game to stop glitching so much) to try to fix this issue, but is this just affecting me?

 

I wouldn't be surprised. It's a mess to try and play tbh. Even when I download the game to try and see what's been changed or explore the files.

Of course he will. 

Also literally just search Yandere Simulator on DA and you'll see people just ignore senpai mostly,add their own personality,or actively hate them. Most shipping is rivals and side characters.

Is "Akademi Academy" supposed to sound like "Academy Academy"? Sorry, it justs sounds so dumb when you say it out loud. Moon moon vibes.

It's not different in Japan. A lot of young adults like college because the pressure is less than high school and its standardized tests and because they can wear what they like to class.

IIRC, Alex's attempt to justify his school uniform fetish on "college" students was something like "they're all 18+, really! They just all failed high school, so Akdemi exists so they can pay and role play high school students instead of going to college or getting a job!"

The more he tries to explain the plot, the more plot holes he creates. Never change, Alex. Does anyone takes this game seriously nowadays? Like, does this game still has fans actually expecting it to be released someday?

Considering that same rule, that would make Hanako and Taro twins, which again makes zero sense considering she's supposed to be his little sister, and he's supposed to be her protective older brother, so it literally just destroys whatever angle Alex is going for.

That said, I have thought about it, and there are a few potential ways Hanako could work:

  • Having her be senpai's twin, so she feels extra attached to Taro (a la Cersei and Jaime Lannister, minus the overt incest) and keeps trying to monopolize his time. There wouldn't be any sort of verbal agreement where Taro agrees not to date for Hanako's sake, but he'd just be so invested in making her happy that he wouldn't really have time to date.
  • Pulling off the twin thing, except Hanako's lowkey nuts and Taro just doesn't see it b/c she's his sister, what's he gonna say against her? And maybe Ayano's job would then be to expose Hanako's own weirdness/obsession/attraction to her brother? (this goes back into the incest realm unfortunately) 
  • Having Hanako be very little, so she's not even close to a romantic interest, more like a child Senpai's been charged to care for (maybe his parents are unable to watch her for this particular week, or whatever). If Ayano doesn't intervene, Senpai's parents will realize he's such a good babysitter that they'll saddle him with Hanako more often, until he no longer has any time for himself or dating, so Ayano ultimately loses? 
    • This could also work with Hanako being Senpai's young cousin or something along those lines, where it's not so much his romantic feelings Ayano is vying for, but rather his time?
  • Have Hanako just be a family friend who's visiting town/the country for a bit, and becomes smitten with Senpai (could have an age different here, or make them the same age, whatever). You can't kill her off either, since that would mess up Senpai's family and Senpai himself, since he's the one in charge of showing her around/taking care of her?

I dunno, these are just thoughts I came up with on the fly, nothing polished. I'm also not sure how many of these fall into typical anime tropes (I haven't watched enough anime to know). But literally, any of these is better than whatever nonsense Alex is trying to patch up. He's trying to fix bandaids with bullet holes and is failing miserably. 

Honestly, just for fun, when I finish classes tonight I'm going to rework a bit of YanSim--rivals, storyline, Senpai, etc.--just to see how far I get. Let's test a college student's efforts in a few hours against an almost thirty-year-old man's 5-year-long "passion" project.

Since all the characters are supposedly 18+ (which are lies no way they are), why doesn't Alex just make Akademi High (or Academy, wutever) a reformative school?

There could be kids that can't attend a regular school for personal reasons, academic reasons, health reasons and so on. It would justify having weapons on the school grounds, why there are delinquents just allowed to be in school (his reasoning sounded like BS), why the teachers are fucking judo ass-kicking robots, and could potentially tie up a lot of plot holes. In a reformative school, maybe Yan-chan got sent there because she was deemed too dangerous to be around regular students, so they send her to a 'special school'. The most prestigious reformative school in Japan (the story's setting is Japan right?). There, she sees a bunch of students that annoy her.

Then, she meets Senpai. A diamond in the rough! The apple of her eye! (Not with his current boring ass persona though). Then she likes him goes full Yandere yadda-yadda-yadda. Then, as you eliminate each rival, you start to find clues as to the reason why Senpai is in a reformative school. (I fully support the idea of Senpai being a manipulative fuck). But it would make more sense that she could be 18, Senpai could be 19, and the others can be different ranging ages.

Akademi High can't be a regular school with delinquents and kids 18 years old and older in Japan, that wouldn't make any sense. Also, if an investigation is going on, it would take at least several days. Not overnight or a few hours after school is done. I think as a reformative school, they could have connections to the police, meaning they keep the crimes out of the news, have faster investigations, and more cover-ups due to some of the students' nature. Then, that last rival (forgot her name) could be a part of this whole scheme. She got Yan-chan pushed out of her last school and pulled strings to get her into Akademi High because of the mother's crimes. She's hellbent on getting Yan-chan in trouble to get revenge, so she gives her an environment where she can (essentially) be a full yandere and reveal her true nature. She has weapons out in the open, gives a fake ally, and maybe even plants a student (or recruits a student) who Yan-chan seems to take an interest in to push her into revealing herself.

Idk, not really good at coming up with ideas, I probably have just as many plot holes as Alex, but his High-school scenario isn't working out.  There's a lot of better ways he can change the setting without changing anything at all.

It may just be because I don't have any siblings, but I find the idea of someone(especially at Hanako's age) being that possesive of their sibling to the point where they don't want them to have a girlfriend is disturbing. 

 

the only reasoning I could see Hanako being clingy to the point of possessive of her brother is if she has a sheltered upbringing or issues with socialising. To me, it would make sense if she had a history of bullying and felt inclined to be around her brother for a social safety net. 

Though I don’t believe that any sibling out there would stop the other from having romantic relationships. (And I have siblings so I’m certain of this) In fact, if Hanako really did care for senpai wouldn’t she encourage him to have a relationship? Hanako can’t expect to live her whole life besides senpai into adulthood, both refusing to marry without raising an eyebrow. 

Also, I couldn’t imagine someone asking senpai why he refuses to date without being weirded out by an answer like “I’m not dating because my little sister said so.”

(from the wiki)

Hanako Yamada is the ninth upcoming rival in Yandere Simulator.

She is a student at Akademi High. She is one year younger than Senpai,but is two school years behind him.

It is also known that she will eventually wear special stockings to make herself stand out,as well as unique panties that suit her personality.

Senpai's little sister was originally going to be cute and innocent, but she was later changed to lewd, jailbaity and perverted. 

If the player fails to eliminate the Hanako by Friday, she will force Senpai to promise to not get a girlfriend. 

Makes me wonder why Alex who doesn't even have put Osana in the game already plans out what kind of panties Hanako will wear.

... Osana isn't in the game YET!? What has Alex been doing this whole time? Why did he bothered to create nine rivals if he can't even implement one in the game?
