Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side (ときめきメモリアルGirl's Side Tokimeki Memoriaru Girl's Side?) is a female-oriented dating sim[1] video game released by Konami for the PlayStation 2 game console on June 20, 2002.

Game features

Although the Tokimeki Memorial series was originally male-oriented, this game is directed toward the female market and involves a female protagonist looking for love amongst a cast of male characters. Some modifications in game-play were also made to make the game more appealing to female gamers. The player is able to go shopping on her free days to buy clothes and is able to change her daily attire as well as dressing-up for a date. In addition to the male love-interest characters, there are also female characters who can become the player's friends, study together, go out for coffee, etc. These characters can also become love rivals. The parameters which are built up through different activities include academic ability, art, popularity, sport, attentiveness and beauty.

Among the changes in the Nintendo DS version there is a new character, Tendo, and new features including a best friends scenario, skinship, and kiss endings. The best friends scenario involves a confession of love from a male best friend. The clothes have been switched to the more popular Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 2nd Kiss fashions.

Game content

The game's main character is a student at the imaginary private Habataki High School. While leading a normal high school life including academics, club activities and part-time work, it is also possible to become friendly with boys who can make a declaration of love on graduation day.


Club activities

Clubs can involve both physical and academic activities. All activities increase attentiveness. Through prolonged participation in a club it's possible to become the club's leader and also to create related career opportunities for the future. Athletic clubs and the school band hold practice every third Sunday. If the player misses practice twice (once for the band), she is expelled. All clubs have a summer session in August, although the player doesn't interact with other club members then. The summer session will feature cooking duty, and the player will be able to cook a meal according to her attentiveness score.

  • Baseball Club
    Wataru Hibiya is a member. Player joins as manager. Increases art and attentiveness.
  • Girl's Basketball Club
    Practice is held at the same place as Boy's basketball. Possibility of meeting Kazuma Suzuka and Tamami Konno.
  • Tennis Club
    Mizuki Sudo is a member. Increases art and sport parameters.
  • Cheerleading Club
    Natsumi Fujii is a member. Costs the most academic ability points of any activity. Cheer at both Baseball and Basketball practice. Increases beauty.
  • Gardening Club
    Sakuya Morimura is a member. Increases academic ability and art.
  • Art Club
    Shiki Mihara is a member. Increases art and beauty.
  • Brass Band
    Reiichi Himuro is the band's conductor as well as the faculty advisor for the club. Like athletic clubs it meets every 3rd Sunday. As Himuro is very strict, he will expel students who miss practice immediately. Art and academic ability are increased.
  • Handcrafts Club
    Ikkaku Amanohashi will show up on the day the player cooks for the club during the summer session. Attentiveness, popularity and art parameters are strengthened. On the third year culture festival the club has a wedding dress fashion show. It has a reputation for being less demanding than other club activities.

Part-time work

If the player works at any one location for a long time, she will be offered a full-time position upon graduation.

  • Alucard Coffee Shop
    Close to studio used by Kei Hazuki. He will also visit the coffee shop often.
  • Stallion Oil
    This is a gas station and Madoka Kijo's part-time job.
  • Annery Flower Shop
    Although this is Shiho Arisawa's part time job, it increases popularity and decreases academic ability.
  • Winning Burger
    Although this is Natsumi Fujii's part-time job it increases both academic ability and popularity.
  • Boutique Jess
    Owned by Goro
  • Simone House of Goods

  • Game debugger
    As it's difficult to get rid of all the bugs, stress accumulates quickly while all other parameters fall.

"Skinship" mode

As an added feature of the Nintendo DS version, the player can touch many of the characters using the stylus causing many different responses depending on their feelings for you (e.g. if Hibiya is on neutral, you increase his love for you if you touch his arms and torso).

Best friends mode

Another addition to the Nintendo DS version. When there is more than one love interest, they get separate love and friendship parameters, when the love parameter reaches a certain level there is a possibility of a declaration of love. This feature was very well received by fans.


Like in other installments of the Tokimeki Memorial series, there is a legend. There is a fairy-tale story of a traveling prince who falls in love with a princess but are torn apart. The story is told by a young boy to the main character as a young girl in a church on the grounds of Habataki high school. The boy promises to one day return to that same place to declare his love.
