Volleyball Heaven – Introducing Rika

I must say that I have a weak spot for asian girls 😉 Probably I’m not the only one! Anyways, she has a cool look and hair style, and an interesting backstory… read below the writer’s official intro.

Rika Yukimura, 19

From a young age, American-born Rika felt a tension between her traditionally minded Japanese immigrant parents and the freewheeling culture in which she grew up immersed. When she was 12, amid rising familial tensions, her father finally returned to Japan, leaving Rika and her mother – who was already having an affair with the man who would become her stepfather – to continue life in Asgard.

Perhaps because of her experiences, Rika has always been interested in the complex relationships between appearances and reality, truth and lies. From a young age, with a precocious appreciation for such films as His Girl Friday, Ace in the Hole, and All the President’s Men, she set her heart on being an investigative journalist. When she entered the Journalism program at Asgard College she considered it a stroke of luck that among her fellow students were Jade and Zoe Markson who, rich and privileged as they are, would surely have a few skeletons just waiting to tumble out of their closets.

Now, a year later, as an unsuspecting Kayla enters their orbit, she is wondering whether it was a curse wrought to trap her personally. After unearthing information which she believed would lead to the scoop of a lifetime, naivety, poor judgment, and carelessness has turned her dream to lawyer-infested nightmare. Not only has she made enemies of the Markson cousins, but even the College administration has put her on notice that she might be expelled should she put another foot wrong.

Outwardly calm, friendly, and diligent, inside Rika finds herself constantly tense and on edge, not helped by her tendency towards social anxiety which she has always struggled with. When Kayla joins the Asgard Valkyrie’s, Rika dares to hope that fate has given her a chance of redemption, but first she has to use all her guile to determine where the new girl’s loyalties and ambitions really lie.

    So just curious: will this game have any comic relief?

    ‘Cause even wid (PHILLY-Speak) it apparently not being entirely a romance-yuri thing (I hope 🙂 ) it sounds from the descriptions of all the characters thusfar that this is gonna be pretty damn heavy.

    (Not meant as criticism; merely a q.)

      I laughed several times reading it, though it’s a more sophisticated humor. It has probably one of the best writing of my games, though it’s definitely not like Roommates. If you only want to laugh and read a more light story (with some occasional sad/serious moments), Summer In Trigue is much better than this game 🙂

        That begs the q. for someone like me, then: w/ Summer In Trigue will there be any paths that are strictly platonic/friendship-type things?

        (I know, I know…I can be a bit of a bother sometimes w/ this sorta thing. :p Sorry.)

    Oh, so this is a yuri-only game? Sold. Nice artstyle too.
