Ryuto Ippongo is one of the male students that currently attends Akademi High School.

Ryuto wears the default male school uniform, unless customized by the player.

He used to have thick, bushy eyebrows, longer hair, a spiky ponytail on the back of his head, and a black bandana. All of these were removed in the October 8th, 2015 Build.

In his former appearance, he had black spiky hair with flame-red tips. He had grey eyes and a red bandana around his head with three strands of hair that fell onto it.

As of the February 15th, 2016 Build, Ryuto has tall, dark red, spiky hair with sideburns and dark red eyes.

Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Ryuto is a Phone Addict. He will happily pose for a picture if Yandere-chan aims her camera at him. If he sees a corpse or witnesses a murder, he will snap a picture with his Phone and will text it to the police. While he is doing this he will run out of the school. He cannot participate in physical confrontations against murderers, unless they kill Pippi Osu.

He would rather play the video game Osu! than socialize with the other students.

According to his student profile, he lies to his parents and claims he spends all of his free time studying.


At 7:05 AM, Ryuto enters the school grounds. He walks to his locker at 7:10 AM and changes from his outdoor shoes to his indoor shoes. At 7:15 AM, he walks to the computer lab and plays Osu!.

At 8:00 AM, Ryuto walks into Classroom 1-2 and sits at his desk. He starts his morning classes at 8:30 AM, and leaves to go to the computer lab at 1:00 PM.

Ryuto walks back to class again at 1:30 PM and participates in cleaning time between 3:30 PM and 4:00 PM. Afterwards, he heads to his locker and changes from his indoor shoes to his outdoor shoes, then he lingers there until 3:50 PM, then he heads to the computer lab and then stays there until the end of the day.


Pippi Osu

Main article: Pippi Osu

Ryuto has a crush on Pippi according to his student profile, but he doesn't know that she feels the same way about him.

Since he has a crush on her, if the player kills Pippi in front of him, he will attack the player with much more force than he's usually capable of. However, if she dies, he will not mourn her death.

I took off my bandana to adjust it, and a gust of wind just - WHOOSH - blew it right out of my hands! I can sense that my bandana is still somewhere on the school grounds. I can feel its energy! I feel naked without my bandana...but I can't find it anywhere! Would you pleeeeeease bring it to me if you find it?
