The Photography Club is a club in Akademi High School.


This room is located on the third floor in the northern wing. As of the May 14th, 2018 Build, a placeholder club leader stands at the front of the room by a table with four chairs. The ceiling and front wall are gray while the floor, back wall, and side walls are white. The shooting set has a white set behind it, and a black Saikou camera.

There are twelve white boards with multiple black and white polaroids of various objects, locations, and students around Akademi. There are six on the west and back walls, three to the left of the placeholder club leader, and three to the right of her. There is a dart board on the back wall.

As of the May 14th, 2018 Build, there is a small section at the front of the room with a pink and white rug, Magical Girl Pretty Miyuki posters, miscellaneous anime-style posters, figurines, and five Life Note manga.

As of the May 15th, 2018 Build, there is a white curtain covering the small section of the room. The placeholder club leader is also removed.

As of the May 18th, 2018 Build, the placeholder club leader was re-added.

Joining the Club

To join the club, the player will have to talk to the placeholder club leader and select the "Join" option on the interaction wheel. Afterwards, they can participate in club activities. After joining, Yandere-chan will wear a Saikou camera around her neck.


While Yandere-chan is a member of this club, NPCs will not react to cameras being pointed at them, making it easier to take pictures of people with certain personas. The player can also zoom in and out with their phone, making it easier to snap pictures from farther away.

In the future, joining the Photography Club may provide other photo-related benefits, such as not being seen as suspicious for carrying a camera, potentially making it easier to take blackmail pictures.

The students in the Photography Club will let their guard down around Yandere-chan in this club, since they cannot fathom one of their own being a killer.


Students will use this room after school. As it is unimplemented, no students will go inside yet except Akane Toriyasu on her daily rounds. If the player participates in club activities, she will goof around with the other club members. If the School Atmosphere decreases, the club members will instead discuss how to catch criminals.

Main Article: Sleuth

Future Photography Club members will all have the Sleuth persona.

  • If atmosphere is high, the members will goof around and be harmless.
  • If atmosphere is low, the members will start acting serious and discuss the corpses, blood stains, and missing students around the school.
  • If atmosphere is very low, the members will be dead serious. They will patrol the school in an attempt to find evidence of the culprit's identity, which makes them a threat to the player. If they catch Yandere-chan in the middle of a crime, they will take a photo and send it to the police, resulting in an automatic Game Over.

Leaving and Disbanding

Yandere-chan will be kicked out if a member sees her kill another student. In the future, she will also be kicked out if the player does not participate in club activities at least once a week. If the president dies, goes missing, or if there are less than five members in the club, the club will disband. Once the club closes, the door to the room will be locked, and previous members will have their schedules changed and no longer attend.

The player can also request permission to leave, but once they leave, they can never join again.
