At 7:15 AM, he walks into the [[5]], to the right side of the [[6]], and gossips with [Yuto|Haruto Yuto], [Yuki|Sota Yuki], [Haruki|Hayato Haruki], [Koki|Ryusei Koki], and [Sosuke|Sora Sosuke].

Riku wants the player to take a picture of the kitten behind the school so he can see if it's well. After the task is completed, Riku will thank the player and also befriend them.


As stated in his student profile, he comes from a rich family. He tries to hide the fact from others, but his affluent origins are very obvious because of his unusual way of speaking.

  • In older debug builds, Riku was the only male student that was a part of the [Club|Cooking Club]. However, he never participated in the club activity after school.


I saw the most peculiar thing today - there was a kitten walking around the school! I'm not sure how it got in here... It was quite an adorable little creature. I wish I could get a second look at it... If you see that kitten anywhere, would you mind taking a picture of it for me?
— Riku asking if Yandere-chan could take a picture of a kitten for him.
It's good to find someone else who shares my appreciation for felines! Best of luck to you!
— Accepting Riku's task.
Ah, I was worried that it was a strange request. I apologize for taking up your time.
— Denying Riku's task.
Yes, that's it! That's the kitten I saw! Hmm, it appears to be in good delightful!
