In After School Affairs, there are five guys in total whom you can pursue on the game and few supporting characters to compliment the story. To understand the relation between characters please look at the relationship chart below.
Here is the profile of each characters as shown on the game.
Below I will summarize the story of each guy and add my own personal view of the route so you might find spoilers ahead. Please read it at your own risk.
Rikiya Mononobe is the Science teacher, who’s famous for his teaching skill at the prep school. At first, the MC is kind of afraid of him because of his cold exterior and aggressive way of speaking. Not to mention he always ride his motorcycle to school and almost hit her on the first day she moved into the teacher’s residence. When she’s in charge of the lowest rank of boys’ class as Rikiya’s partner, she has so many doubts whether they can make the so called baddest students pass the standardized tests.
Later, she realizes that he actually very caring for the students and have confidence in his skill to make the students pass their test in spite of other teachers’ skepticism. She is drawn to him as they continue to work together to make the ‘worst class’ more worthy in front of the whole school.
Rikiya’s story was the second story I purchased after Kenzo’s, because I was very interested in his personality. Well, personally I’m always interested in guys with bad boy behavior in the game so it was just natural for me to pick him. When I was finished, I was quite disappointed by how the story went. In my opinion, the romance had very slow development. I couldn’t really tell if he has fallen for the MC or not until the last two chapters. It was a huge difference gap compared to Kenzo’s story.
Another minus point from me, the moment I read Rikiya’s background story, the story became predictable. Rikiya had an enemy, the MC got caught in his problems, she got kidnapped and Rikiya had to save her. There was no surprise element at all. That’s why I got disappointed because it reminded me of the things I don’t like from Kissed by the Baddest Bidder’s stories where the MC got kidnapped, A LOT (trust me). So, I’m sorry I have to put Rikiya on the last place for the main story.
