|“||Growing up in Atara, Mei had always wanted to be a reporter for the Atara Post. When she finally got in the door, she was sent to the poorly circulated affiliate Portia Times. Choosing to make some lemonade out of the lemons she was given, Mei set out to make the Portia Times a respectable newspaper.||„|
Mei was born on Autumn of Day 11 in Atara. Mei had always dreamed of becoming a reporter for the Atara Post. As her first job, she finally pursued that career but was unfortunately sent to the lesser and poorly circulated affiliate, the Portia Times in Portia. Now, Mei vows to make the Portia Times a respectable newspaper.
She is an enthusiastic and proactive entrepreneur, always looking for opportunities to help the Portia Times. She doesn't let people get her down.
Mei is a pale-skinned, blue-eyed blonde who wears a blue and white pointy hat, a brown poncho over a white long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and black boots.
When befriending Mei, her relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from those NPCs as well.
Upon reaching Friend status at four full hearts, the player can confess their love to her with a Heart Knot. If the confession is successful, her relationship status changes to Girlfriend. After Mei has become the player's girlfriend, upon reaching Lover status at eight full hearts, the player can then propose to her with a Wedding Ring. If the proposal is successful, her relationship status changes to Wife. Once certain other conditions have been met, Mei and the player can then try for children.
Additionally, upon meeting certain relationship levels, certain perks are rewarded.
Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Mei once a day can increase her relationship by 1 point, or 2 points with the Smooth Talk skill; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.
- Every giftable item, except for the items below, will have a Neutral (+1) effect when given to Mei.
- Gifts given on festival days and on Mei's birthday will earn the player 2x and 3x relationship points, respectively, and will show a unique dialogue.
- Values listed below are without The Giver skill, which gives an extra point.
|Listed values are without The Giver skill, which gives an extra point.|
The following items are desires, or wishes, which are randomly assigned to one or two characters per week. The player is required to be at least at Associate level with Mei for her to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Mei progresses; the new desires are added to the existing ones but do not replace them. Some characters may desire an item that they do not normally like.
In the event that Mei has a desire, gifting the wanted item will provide the higher tier points; otherwise, on non-desired events, the item gives the base point value. The birthday or festival day relationship bonus applies when gifting a desired item.
|Minimum Relationship Level||Possible Desires
Photo Album (+15)
Jewelry Box (+20)
Mei can spar with the player up to three times per day.
Note that the level in the table below is Mei's base level at the start of the game. Mei's actual level can be higher because Mei will level up over time.
|Player Lose|| |
Mei can play RPS with the player up to three times per day.
|Group Photo →|
Mei can partake in group photos with the player after reaching the Associate level.
- More poses are unlocked by reaching higher relationship levels.
- Romance poses are unlocked by becoming partners.
- The "Photographer" skill can fully unlock all poses, regardless of relationship or romantic level.
- All poses can be viewed in Mei's Gallery page.
Once the player has become buddies with Mei, they can schedule a play date together.
After the player has successfully confessed how they feel to Mei, the player can schedule a romantic date with Mei.
If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Mei during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Mei will like. If asked before ordering, Mei will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Mei will just give little hints. In the event that Mei does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Mei gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.
Mei's food preferences are:
Banner Fish Salad
|Spaghetti with Hot Sauce|
|Meidi's Fish Stew||N/A|
|Snowman Ice Cream|
Colorful Ice Cream
|Milk Scented Tea||N/A|
As the player develops their relationship with Mei, special interactions are unlocked, including Hug and Kiss.
Mei occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Mei likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Mei may come visit the Museum or the player's yard to view these relics. Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
