The Confession Tree is the cherry tree behind the main building of Akademi High School where the rivals confess their love to Senpai.



This cherry tree is a tall tree with pale pink flowers, with petals lightly drifting to the ground. Before the November 15, 2015 Build, the tree was located behind the school, ever since the early debug builds. As of the November 15th, 2015 Build, the tree is located on a steep hill behind the track. A Mysterious Tape is located on the hill near this tree. Around the end of the day, the tree becomes slightly tinted with gold.


If Yandere-chan does not eliminate her rival by the Friday deadline, the rival will confess her love to Senpai under the tree, which will then lead to a "Heartbroken" Game Over. If Yandere-chan successfully made Senpai hate the rival, Senpai will reject her love confession which won't cause a Game Over.

A girl confessing to a boy underneath a blossoming cherry tree is a cliche in anime that will be drawn upon in the game. [1]

There is also a myth in the game that if a girl confesses to a boy under the exact tree on Friday, he is guaranteed to accept her love confession, as said in the second intro.

If successfully matched, rivals will confess to their suitor under the tree, rather than Senpai.

Info-chan states that Osana Najimi believes in this myth in the same intro; however, it is unknown if other rivals do too. Yandere-chan would love to confess to Senpai underneath this tree one day.[2]
