Senpai is not able to fall in love with rivals on his own accord. He will start to develop a crush on a rival if she has five interaction events with him. Once a day, there will be an "event" with Senpai, with the final event being a love confession. Ayano Aishi will be able to sabotage each event. If she sabotages all five events, Senpai will reject the rival's love confession. Sabotaging four or less will make the outcome depend on the reputation of the rival.
Damaging a rival's reputation by gossiping about them is another way to make Senpai reject her love confession, as Senpai can never love someone with a low reputation. Senpai will reject a love confession from Ayano or a rival if their reputation is below -100.
It may be possible in the future to provoke a rival enough for them to attack Ayano in front of Senpai, allowing him to witness the event and reject the rival.

On Thursday, Ayano must turn off Osana's phone alarm while she is taking a nap on the rooftop by playing a timed button press mini-game.
On Friday, Ayano must use a directional microphone, bought from Info-chan to record the conversation between Musume and Osana. Once Osana has created a playlist for Senpai, Ayano must steal her phone and use a computer in the Computer Lab to replace the music with an edited-version of the conversation that makes it sound like Osana is bad-mouthing Senpai.
If all of these events have been sabotaged, Senpai will reject Osana's confession on Friday.
- In the full game, if the Rejection elimination method is used too often, Senpai will start to dislike women and worry that he'll never find the right partner.
- This method was first introduced into the game on August 31st, 2020 with the official demo.
