New Senpai Customization Screen

As of the August 15th, 2015 Build, Senpai is once again customizable. When the player starts a new game, they are asked whether their ideal lover is male or female. Since the female Senpai hasn't been implemented yet (and won't be for the next couple of months, as of October 2015[1]), the player must choose to have Senpai be a male student. A female Senpai can be made by modifying the game, but she will still have a male voice for certain things. The starting screen shows the default Senpai, but naked with steam covering his genitals.

As of the September 2nd, 2017 Build, the customization screen now features Yandere-chan stalking Senpai through a hallway.

In the future, the original concept of what YandereDev thought the uniform should look like could become the default uniform. YandereDev is currently holding a poll to test public and fan opinions of the design.[5]

Main Article: Suitors

As part of the matchmaking elimination method, the player can alter the appearance of the suitor. If Yandere-chan manages to figure out what features the rival is attracted to, she can advise the suitor to change his appearance based on what the rival is attracted to. This increases the multiplier boost during the matchmaking interaction.

The player is able to customize the students, rivals, and the school however they would like.[6] YandereDev would like to include the ability to designate who the rival is.[7]
