Technical Help


The goal of the game is to clear a girl in 21 days. To do so there are various actions which will raise or lower the girl's affection level. The player can explore 5 locations and meet the girls there, interact with some hotspots in the environment and find items either for giving them to a girl or for crafting new clothes.

Removing Clothes

The shirt icon at the upper right of the screen is used to adjust both Nanao's and the girls' clothing. Right click on this icon to toggle between showing a plain men's t-shirt and showing a girl's shirt with a bow on the front.

Left clicking the plain t-shirt lets you remove or replace Nanao's clothing. Left clicking the bow-front shirt lets you shift, remove, or replace the clothing of the girl that Nanao is currently interacting with.


Affection Points
Affection points are earned through various actions such as talking to a girl, triggering an event, sex, etc...
You can earn both positive and negative points.
The points are totaled up at the end of each day and are used to earn (or lose) affection levels.
Affection Levels
Girl's affection

Each girl's affection level is shown as a vertical stack of 4 hearts. The number of hearts that are filled indicates the girl's affection level.

Affection level can be raised by earning points through the day. It is only updated at the end of each day.

Level 1 Default level at game start.
Level 2 Allows you to ask the girl on a date.
Allows new sex poses to be unlocked.
Level 3 Unlocks certain Ecchi events.
Level 4 Required to clear a girl on day 21


A girl's mood is indicated by the symbol next to her picture in the lower left of the screen.

General Moods

Her mood can be changed by talking to her. A good response will raise it, while a bad one will lower it. Having bad sex will also lower her mood.

The girl's mood must be happy before she will react to any actions you take (required to start certain events).

Horny Mood

AHM UI Mood Horny.png This mood is required to access certain sex positions.
These positions can be unlocked after the girl reaches affection level 2.
Girl's arrusal

The girl's arousal is indicated by a horizontal row of 4 hearts on the status screen. As she gets more aroused, the hearts fill up. She becomes horny when it is maxed.

The girl can be aroused by doing some of the random actions in each location to get her attention. Triggering and successfully completing an event will raise her arousal by 2 hearts. You can instantly make a girl horny by giving her an energy drink. When the girl becomes horny, the mood symbol will change to a heart and she will ask Nanao if he wants to do anything ecchi. Give the correct response to indicate "yes" and she will start following you around. Refusing could piss her off.

Other Moods

AHM UI Mood Sleeping.png The girl is asleep in her room.
You can click on her bedroom door to peek on her.
AHM UI Mood Attention.png You have caught the girl's attention by performing an action.
She will come up to you and say something.
AHM UI Mood Event.png You have triggered an event.
The girl will come up to you and ask if you want to do something.


Point overview

At the end of each day, you are awarded (or stripped of) points, depending on your performance or actions during the day. These points are used to raise or lower the girl's affection level. The affection level for a girl cannot be reduced and will be locked at its maximum value (4) if you cleared the game with the relevant girl.

Points are divided in different categories:

  • Pleasant experience: 10 points per score. It can be raised by choosing an answer that brightens the girl's mood when talking to her, having the girl notice you doing an action ('!' mood - see Events), or giving the girl an item she likes.
  • Enjoyable experience: 30 points per score. It can be raised by accepting a '!!' event - see Events.
  • Very enjoyable experience: 50 points per score. It can be raised by successfully calling and dating the girl, and meeting her at the set location.
  • Reluctant experience: -5 points per score. It can be lowered by choosing an answer that worsens the girl's mood when talking to her, or giving the girl an item she does not like.
  • Unpleasant experience: -20 points per score. It can be lowered by successfully calling and dating the girl, but not meeting her at the set location.
  • H Satisfaction: 20 points per score. It can be raised by initiating a sex scene with the girl, and finishing it with her satisfied.
  • H Reluctance: -5 points per score. It can be lowered by initiating a sex scene with the girl, and finishing it with her angry.

Choosing a dialogue answer that resets the girl's mood to neutral, ending H scenes with the girl neither satisfied not dissatisfied, and giving stat-changing items (S/M books, erotic magazines, drinks, breast changers, etc) to the girl do not give or take points. All of them are stackable.
