Tokimeki Restaurant/ Tokires
Tokires is arguably the best, most awesome FREE (with in-app purchase) otome game in the appstore. I have been addicted to this game since it came out on White Day! I’m almost level 60 now and have completed all known events and obtained known all recipes. v（＾ワ＾*）I AM REALLY ADDICTED!! My biggest wish now is that this game gets a PSP port! As usual, Konami’s graphics are awesome, the bgm is nice (but sadly there is only 1 track unless you got the code from the pre-release event), the best thing is… LIVE2D!! The 2D ikemens actually move around! YES THEY MOVE! The movements are smooth and isn’t awkward like some 3D iphone games (*cough* zettai star *coughs*). Tokires is set in Habataki City like the GS series, sadly, none of the main cast from GS series makes cameo in this game. You will probably see a lot of people naming their café珊瑚礁/ ALUCARD, after the cafés in the GS series~
The story starts when our heroine arrives at Habataki City, where she will be starting work in a café under the guidance of the café’s owner/Master/resident stalker. (He likes to stand behind the customers and nod at them.Σ(・oノ)ノ) The special thing about this café is that the idol production company, Prince Rep.’s, dorm is nearby, and the 2 newly debuted boy groups, 3 Majesty and X.I.P. (pronounced e-gu-ji-pu) are regulars of the café. YAY HERE COMES LIVE2D x UTAPRI x RESTARUANT CITY!
Essence of Master’s wise introduction guide:
“There is a weird idol production company’s dorm nearby, and the youngsters there often come to the shop. Although they are not good boys but they are still regular patrons. So, DON’T LET THEM GET AWAY!!!”
Heeding Master’s wise advice, we just gotta catch ‘em all! Yes, you can actually go after everyone’s events at the same time.
Live2D make Shinnosuke seriously irresistible! His movements are SO ADORABLE! I love it when he looks away and looks back at you! I can’t stop using exclamation mark because he is just so awesome!
Shinnosuke is the ‘mysterious’ prince of sweets, half the time I’m unsure whether he is joking or telling the truth. He likes birds, sleeping and he can talk to dolphins? When Kaito asked him why he doesn’t reveal any information about himself and Shinnosuke answered that it’s because he is really a prince. (*´-ω-｀)
3 Majesty’s leader and producer, he is the all-rounder type. Being both intellectual and sporty, he appeared in national karate competitions and devises strategies for 3 Majesty (and bugging everyone to go for secret strategic meetings). Tsukasa is currently juggling both his idol career and attending university. His likes to watch movie and read.
Kaito likes to draw and eat delicious things, he can also cook! He is the youngest in 3 Majesty, so Tsukasa added in their profile that he is like the younger brother, of course he doesn’t take it well. (ﾉc_,･ ) He came up first place in Prince Rep.’s auditions. He is a tsunDERE! I can’t really tell the difference between tsun/kuu/dan but I know he is DERE, he blushes all the time, and he is like the display model of how blushing looks cute on live2D.
The Muscle man.
Kento worked as a model until Kyoya invited him to join X.I.P., he is the Big Guy of the team. As Shinnosuke pointed out, Kento is the ‘adorable’ guy in X.I.P., he is the tough guy with a soft, fluffy core, and he is afraid of dogs. (･д･｀*) He says the nicest things amongst the guys when your shop is empty. (Toru will sometimes laugh at you when your shop is empty)
Kyoya is the charao, lady’s man and the flirt in every otome game who has a special nickname for the heroine. (Kyoya’s one is waruiko-chan/bad girl-chan) Personally, I find that he is a very fun guy to be around. Kyoya may appear flirty and flippant but he is actually very responsible and dependable, being the leader who holds X.I.P. together. He is trained in dancing, singing, acting since young, but he was barred from joining the entertainment industry until recently due a certain accident.
Toru is Kento’s childhood friend, and was invited to join X.I.P. by Kento. Toru is the namaiki koakuma type. One simply cannot resist Toru’s cute blushing face, live2Dヾ(*・ω・)ノbanzai! I just can’t put Toru’s adorableness into words, he might appear cocky and unreasonable but it’s really just his way of showing his affections.

I must apologize beforehand if I get anything wrong in content or translations, my language skills are bad, really bad. Also, tokires seems to be frequently changing content information (such as the event names), therefore I strong regret if I am unable to keep up to the most current data.

05/04/13 → Improved the exclusive events section, updated reputation
29/05/13 → Added recipe guide link and weekly updates from 28/05
01/08/13 → Updated maximum layout size
I will be following up with the weekly updates every Tuesday from 28/05! c:
Here are the links to the weekly updates:
Suddenly you see a ring of stars around your icon and a mob of people trying to cram into your café. FEVER MODE! The greatest benefit of the fever mode is that the energy required to cook dishes is HALVED. Fever mode is triggered by presents from the customers, using the item “声かけ/koekake/ calling out” (the red thing you find in the second tab in the items menu) or after a skinship mode. The normal fever mode will last until 5 people (excluding idols) enter the café, while the ones from skinship modes will only last for 3 people.
*** To lengthen the duration of the fever mode, you can either:
- Block off the entrance, the customers will take some time to exclaim that there are no seats and there cause a slight congestion at the door. However, beware that your friends won’t be able to dine at your café if block off the entrance.
- Since idols don’t count towards the number of people and they take their own sweet time at the entrance and walk real slow, you can always wait until the idol approaching sign pops up before using the koekake item.
- I came up with this method by experiment. This can keep fever mode up for quite a long time, I don’t know if it is the most efficient method but when done correctly I can cook up to around 15 dishes.
- Wait until the idol approaching sign comes up.
- Reduce the number of seats in your café, I usually work with 1 seat. As long as the guy isn’t already at your door, he will be still approaching your café even after you change your layout. (You can do step 2 before step 1, but this might affect your reputation and you might need to wait longer for idols to appear.)
- Build a labyrinth/obstacle course, as complicated as you can, but be sure that 1 seat is accessible.
- Use the koekake item. Most of the time for me, there is 1~2 customer who come before the idol. The customer will happily walk to the seat, since idols won’t leave your café even when it’s full, they will stone at the door and wait until the customer is finished.
To maximize the duration, you should work with 1 seat and do step 1 before attempting step 2. This method is making using of the fact idols don’t leave your café when you have accessible seats in your café, so you must have at least 1 seat in your café.
Notes: Fever mode only disappears after 5 people enters your café, so even if you change layout, eat at other’s café or close the app before 5 people enters your café, the fever mode should remain for some time, however I am unsure of how long the effect is preserved. This is also the case for idols approaching signs, unless the idol is at your door before or exactly at the moment you switch away.
I find that the guys tend to come more often when you cook the food they like, here is a list of low energy food to use as bait for each of them:
Tsukasa: Tonic water/トニックウォーター -8 energy +3 flowers
Shinnosuke: Vanilla ice-cream (cone)/ バニラアイス(コーン) -8 energy +3 flowers
Cake muffin/ケーキマフィン-8 energy +3 flowers
Kaito: Cheesecake (cut)/ チーズケーキ(カット) –16 energy +3 flowers
Mitarashi dango/みたらし団子 -8 energy +2 flowers
Tonic water/トニックウォーター -8 energy +2 flowers
Kento: Gyudon/牛丼-13 energy + 3 flowers
Kyoya: Yakitori/焼き鳥-13 energy +3 flowers
Hamburger/ハンバーガー-14 energy + 3 flowers
Toru: Cola/コーラ-8 energy +2 flowers (for 3 flowers, the dishes are all 25 energy and above: Spicy Fried Rice, Mapo Tofu etc.)
After seeing 5 events, you will be given 24 hours to activate this. It consist of 3 stages, as the name suggest you molest poke the bishies, and listen to some wonder sounds. (*´∀`*)
Stage 1: Tap 3 pink hearts before they disappear to fill a heart on the top left hand corner. Fill 3 hearts to proceed to the next stage. Either tapping the blue hearts or not tapping the pink heart before it disappears will cause you to fill a blue heart, and filling 3 blue hearts will cause you to fail…
Stage 2: Like stage 1 you have to tap hearts, but this time round you have to tap 5 pink hearts to fill a heart, and you will need to fill 5 hearts to go to the next stage.
Stage 3: Congratulations! This stage is freestyle, so you can tap/stroke/rub/molest the guys to your hearts content before you white out! ( //∇// )
At the end of stage 3 you will gain 25 energy and a short fever mode, considering that you sat through 5 events x 5 energy + 5 energy to activate skinship mode, you just spent 5 energy to activate a fever mode that can most likely only allow you to cook 1 dish. So use it well! It is speculated that some events require a certain number of skinship mode to be unlocked.
Album events are widely speculated to be dependant on the player’s level, number of skinship mode played and the character’s affection level. Affection level is refers to the presumed gauge of relationship points gained by idols from eating in your café, viewing events and playing skinship mode.
Here are some symptoms you might encounter:
a) No matter how much you feed them, the heart just won’t pop up.
b) You get the heart popping up on their heads but you keep getting the same few non-album events.

Number of seats
The number of accessible seats you have in the café affects the number of customers. Although a big restaurant with more seats looks awesome, a smaller one is easier to manage.
1~5 seats: Food won’t disappear so fast, energy conserving. During fever mode and high reputation, café won’t be able to accommodate the customers so reputation tends to drop.
* Useful for tackling events due to the fact that idol won’t leave even when the café is full.
6~12 seats: Food disappears at moderate speed, slightly energy conserving, more likely to accommodate all customers during fever and high reputation.
13~60 seats: Food disappears fast, energy consuming, able to accommodate all customers even during fever mode and high reputation.
*Useful for leveling up recipes as food goes down very fast.
The higher the tier of reputation you are in, the more customers you receive and the more often idols visit your café. To increase your reputation, you should serve a variety of dishes and enough seats for your customers. The flowers from customers after a meal increases the invisible reputation gauge.
Blue: I didn’t even know this face existed until I fell asleep playing recently. Yes, I fell asleep playing, now you now how hardcore I am.(ﾉ_｀ヽ)
Have you seen the orange “イチオシ” sign your recipe list? That is the recommended food that changed once a week after maintenance. From my observations customers are more likely to order the dish, personally I didn’t really feel much effect but cooking recommended food is rumored to increase your shop reputation faster or bring more customers.
Also, they make good filler foods to reduce the speed normal customers chomp down on that high energy food you are saving for your friends or the idols.
The maximum space you can have currently is 15 x 15. That is equivalent 30 wallpaper pieces and 225 floor pieces.
Not enough energy? No problem! What are friends for? They are here to recover yourenergy! Once a day, you can eat out at each of your friend’s restaurant, the energy gained is equivalent to the energy spent to cook that dish, so eat up all those energy costly dishes and cook up high energy dishes for your friends! You can gain friends by sending out friend request to random players (customers with green words on their heads, tap them and select the second option) or by exchanging friend codes with people. As you level up, the number of friends you can have will also increase!
It happens every Tuesday from to 14:00~18:00 (GMT +9), service normally resumes slightly before 6pm. For the hardcore players: Remember to use up all your energy before the maintenance!!
Saitou-kun(?)/Nanpa: If you have played any of the Tokimeki Memorial GS games, you might remember the guy trying to pick you up when you wait for your guy during a date. Apparently he is called Saitou, graduated from Habataki Gakuen and couldn’t get into his desired university so he dropped out and started doing some suspicious catch sales. Although whenever he appears he seems to be scouting you to join AKB48 or something.
Dolphin Ruka: Remember Ruka from GS3? In GS3 itself, there are already quite a few reference between Ruka and dolphins. Dolphins are called iruka in Japanese, when you write it like: iRuka, it looks like some new Apple product. Anyways, in an event with Kyoya, they are watching a dolphin show and the announcer introduced a dolphin with the same name as the main guy of GS3. While Sakurai Ruka jumps down from high places, Dolphin Ruka catches everyone’s attention by jumping up really high which allows Kyoya to steal a kiss from the heroine.（●´艸｀）
