Hi friends! Just relax and sit tight while we visit some of the unexplored content in this here menu, and elsewhere, before we proceed into new BBL territory. Let's take a look at the gallery first, shall we?
Most of these images should look familiar to you, and if they don't you might want to go take a look at the previous routes to refresh your memory.
That first, black image there is, in fact, the game over screen! We'll take a look at that later. First, take a look at the ending cards for the routes that have extended versions.
This ending cuts out when Sakuya goes to speak with his father, which is why our renegade fantail is depicted here rather than in his other, singing ending card.
It's been a while since we've seen Okosan's ending, but his is similar. It cuts off after Hiyoko and San have sworn to go find the ultimate pudding (or whatever it was) together. It doesn't add in the part where they manage to find it.
And with that, let's head back to the title menu.
Don't worry, we'll get back to the Game Over screen in a bit! For now, let's check out the archive.
As you can see here, as well as in the gallery, there are a few things missing. I can only assume that all of these will show up once we get through BBL, since I haven't actually done it on my own yet! We're going to do it together, yay!
We can click on each of these drawers and learn some additional information on the world of Hatoful Boyfriend. I'm sure many of them will have to do with the questions you all have already.
Let's start with number 1:
We have established one of Student No. 60781's special characteristics.
He acts as a neurotransmitter, producing a trance-like state in bystanders.
The effect is similar to that of a narcotic.
We will continue our observation.
I feel uncomfortable.
Where did I come from?
Where was I born?
The fact that I am trapped in here is the least of the mysteries plaguing my mind.
I woke up in a different place this morning.
I don't remember well, but it had pale fluorescent lights and a white ceiling.
It can't have been in the library.
Where was I?
Goodwill Ambassador Selection
Selection criteria for the human ambassador has been forwarded to management, along with a draft of the emergency response manual.
Given the risk of influenza, a human with as strong a natural immunity as possible is desirable.
The presence of hereditary immunoglobins is the most important criterion. Others are detailed in the attached documents.
I think and I think,
but I find no answers.
I feel as if I have forgotten something very important.
As if I promised something to someone very important...
We have examined the genetic records of the entire student body. None of them exceed 98% compatibility.
We are continuing to investigate carrier aptitude levels.
We will report on the possibility of inducing carrier capability in a normal individual next week.
Underground Facility Fire
We have temporarily opened the dividing wall in the underground facility, at the request of the biological science division.
We should be able to reconstruct the circumstances of the fire.
Subject 00 remains in cold storage.
Reference Bird Deceased
The death of Subject 00's relative has been confirmed.
His remains are stored in area D3, Section 1.
They are boxed and processed.
Homo Sapiens' Resistant Capabilities
Adaptability for Homo sapiens to be raised an estimated 0.06%.
There are fluctuations in mammalian evolution rates. We may need two or three more samples.
The Intelligence Agent
We have chosen to let the Dove Party agent who has infiltrated the school to operate freely for the time being.
A number of the incoming students have proven to be quite fascinating.
If possible, please examine the details in the attached documents.
I do not think they will oppose me.
I've been feeling better since that nosy girl showed up.
I do not think I will find any answers like this, so perhaps it is time to close the curtains.
I am fulfilled.
Just as I was back then.
I'm trapped here, as always.
But I noticed something new.
It seems that I can move freely along the vertical axis.
After napping today, I woke up in front of the lockers in the chemistry room.
If I remember correctly, the chemistry room was directly below this room.
Am I able to move myself up and down through my own will?
And that's all we have of the files for now. So let's run along and get ourselves a Game Over screen!
I happened to have a save file from the Sakuya route, so I've continued from there and rejected him and got him Bitter Black Beans so this should work out.
(St. Pigeonations' Institute)
Today's the day! The preparations are complete! Time to give the beans to that special somebirdie.
Ah yes. I screwed up Sakuya so much by now that Ryouta's the one who likes me the most. SORRY, RYOUTA.
"Umm, do you have a minute?"
"Sure. What's up?"
"Here! I got these for you!"
"Umm... do you maybe not care for these...?"
"N-n-no, that's not it!
I-I mean, it's a present from you!
Of course I'll eat it!"
"Don't worry about it, Ryouta!
You're not fooling anyone, anyway."
"I-I'm sorry, Hiyoko.
These will make me sick..."
Noooo! I forgot about his weak stomach...!
"Oh, that's right, you have to be really careful with what you eat.
"You don't have to apologize!
It's my digestive system that should be saying it's sorry."
All I managed to do was make a faux pas. I'll have to be more careful next year...
"...which brings us to our main topic: the observational reports on the human representative at St. Pigeonation's."
"As you can see, while she was meant to act as a goodwill ambassador, she... fails to display sufficient intimacy with the birds."
"We of the Hawk Party cannot overlook this situation. These reports only confirm what we already knew of human nature."
"We will execute the termination sequence. Adjourned.
"Mmm! I love watching the stars at night... I can feel the excitement bubbling up from light years away. Yodelehihooooo!"
I think I just heard someth-
The screen shakes, and goes black.
Who's there? Ninjas?!"
"You don't need to know. It'll be all over in two seconds."
There's a sound reminiscent of a knife going through the air.
This is a reference to an old dungeon adventure game, but I can't remember for the life of me what it is. Either way, Moa is a nerd and I love her. This part also plays the game over music from that game, too.
THAT'S IT FOR THE PRE-BBL BONUS FEATURES, FRIENDS! Just around the corner the answers await in LET'S PLAY HURTFUL BOYFRIEND: BAD BOYS' LOVE ROUTE, PART 1! Stay tuned!!
