Notes are an important game mechanic in Yandere Simulator used for asking a student to come to a designated location at a specific time.

Notes play an important role in the faking suicide and befriending processes. However, they can also be used for other things such as leading a student to an isolated area.

The option to write a note is currently given after learning new information from an event. The information gathered must be used with the note to have the desired effect. Electing a topic that the target is not interested in will result in the student throwing away the note. The player is able to write a note on a different day if the student rejects the original note.

Appearance

The note is pink and written in black cursive. The note automatically comes with sentences that have blanks that the player can fill in.

Gameplay

The player can unlock the ability to write a note by listening to Kokona's conversation with Saki Miyu on the northwestern side of the rooftop. Once the player gets the "Learned New Info" HUD, they are able to place the note in Kokona's locker. This note will allow Kokona to meet up in any designated spot or time available. The note cannot choose a time that has already passed.

As of the February 20th, 2018 Build, Ayano can write a note to Horuda Puresu to talk about bullying.

As of the February 15th, 2019 Build, Ayano can leave a note in any student's locker. The Student Council and delinquents will not respond to any of the current topics. The faculty do not have lockers or another place to leave notes.

Place

January3rd2016Places

January 3rd, 2016. The options for places.

This will determine where Ayano will meet their target, provided that she has selected the correct topic and time.

Ayano can either talk to the student about their issues, use an elimination method on them, or ignore them. Certain elimination methods require the target to go to specific locations.

Rooftop

Main Article: Rooftop

If the player chooses to meet on the roof, Ayano can either offer help or can use the fake suicide elimination method on the chosen student. If Ayano has Rank 2 in the Language skill, she can leave a convincing suicide note and the police will write it off as a suicide and thus the case will be closed.

Fake suicide, rooftop method. February 17th, 2016.

Fountain

Main Article: Fountain

If the player chooses to meet at the fountain, Ayano can either offer help or drown the chosen student by grabbing them and holding them under the water for ten seconds.

Drowning Kokona. February 8th, 2016.

Storage Room

Main Article: Storage Rooms

If the player chose to meet in the first floor storage room, Ayano can either offer help or kidnap the chosen student by using a syringe with a tranquilizer inside. This no longer works, as the storage box is no longer in this room.

Storageroom

The first floor storage room.

Behind the School

If the player chooses to meet behind the school, Ayano can either offer help or easily kill her chosen student, as there are currently no witnesses other than Shiromi Torayoshi, who patrols the exterior of the school before school and during lunchtime, Sakyu Basu and Inkyu Basu, who both patrol places around the outside of the school, the Occult Club, in which the members may go behind the school to go look at the basketball in the gym, and the Martial Arts Club, in which the members walk behind the school to go to sparring areas.

Behindtheschoolnote

Offering help behind the school.

Outside Cafeteria

If the player chooses to meet at the outside cafeteria, Ayano can either offer help, pour a liquid her chosen student, or kill her chosen student by Homicide or dumping weights on the student from above.

Classroom

If the player chooses to meet at any classroom, Ayano can easily kill her chosen student, as long as no one else is in the classroom with the chosen student.

Time

January3rd2016Time

January 3rd, 2016. The options for time.

Ayano will not be able to meet the chosen student at any time before the current time. If the player selects a time, such as 3:30 PM, they will not receive the note until they arrive at their locker.

In the future, if the player asks a rival to meet when she has a scheduled event, they will react to the note by saying, "Too bad. I can't meet them. I already have plans."[1]

Trivia

  • In the future, Ayano may be able to write notes to Senpai explaining how much she loves him. They would have to be anonymous since Ayano is too shy to let Senpai know about her feelings. It is a low priority at the moment.[2]
  • The original plan for matchmaking was to place fake love letters in a rival's and suitor's lockers. This could not work, as both would realize that they never wrote letters to each other and the mission would fail.[3]
