If an NPC with the Strict persona sees Ayano breaking school rules, she will be sent to the guidance counselor. NPCs with the Strict persona have extensive self-defense training, currently making them impossible to kill without having at least one level of strength, or without the use of Easter Eggs.
If Ayano aims her camera at a Strict NPC, they will stare at the player and give them a suspicious look. Teachers have nothing to hide, so they will see the player as suspicious. If the player joins the Photography Club, they will simply stand still instead, assuming that they are getting their picture taken for the yearbook.
The guidance counselor has a different version of the Strict persona called the Slightly Strict persona. If Ayano gives a valid excuse to justify her behaviour, she will forgive her, but tell her not to do it again. If Ayano makes her patience run out by making a bad excuse or using the same excuse twice, she will punish her. However, since she stays in her office the entire time, it is unknown what her reaction to murder is.
Kyoshi Tachibana, the gym teacher, has the Friendly but Strict persona. She reacts to murder and corpses in the same way as the other teachers, but when taking a photo of her, she poses for Ayano instead of being suspicious.

If a teacher sees Ayano murder an NPC within their line of sight, they will immediately run to pin her down and disarm her. However, if she has at least one level of strength, or is in the Martial Arts Club, there will be a struggle mini-game, similar to the Heroic persona. If Ayano is in the Martial Arts Club, she will win automatically. If the player fails, the teacher will drop kick her and then pin her down.
