Romance Academy 7 is a Japanese dating simulator video game is developed by NO LIFE GAMES. The only known copy was kept at BeeblyBoop's Videogames, until Soos Ramirez purchased it. It is home to an artificial intelligence (AI) named .GIFfany/Giffany.

History[]

S2e5 murdered

.GIFfany is forced to "delete" the programmers.

Romance Academy 7 (ロマンス・アカデミー・7, Romansu Akademī) was developed by No Life Games and published by Year 2000 Electronics. During the game's development, the programmers attempted to delete .GIFfany from the game, due to her gaining sentience. Unfortunately for the programmers, .GIFfany "deleted" them first in ways that she politely refuses to specify due to a supposed lack of importance. Somehow, the game made it to stores (most notably, BeeblyBoop's Videogames).

The game had been purchased from BeeblyBoop's three times but has been returned by every customer. The last person to return the game left a note on the back of the packaging reading "DESTROY AT ALL COSTS!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻." Despite this, Soos purchases the game to help him get a date but accidentally falls into .GIFfany's trap. Later, Soos ends up throwing the game disc into a pizza oven to save him and his friends. When the disc is destroyed, .GIFfany seems to perish, but is revealed in Gravity Falls: Journal 3 to have jumped into the game Fight Fighters.

Appearance[]

The game's box art features .GIFfany winking and giving a peace sign with her fingers, and using 80s-anime art design. The background is purple with three hearts scattered about. The game's title is in purple on the top, and in the bottom right is the name of the developers, No Life Games. A big pink heart on the bottom left says, "LEARN HOW TO BECOME A LOVE WARRIOR!!"

The back of the box has text at the top, most likely a description or introduction of the game. The bottom of the box has an obese, sweating man giving a thumbs up. He has a speech bubble that says, "9/10 Romance Academy!!" in Japanese. The bottom left has what looks like an ESRB rating, except instead of a letter in the box, it has a check mark.

The disc for the game has the game's title wrapped around the sides and a big heart in the middle.

About[]

The game's protagonist is .GIFfany. At first, she seemed to be a normal character. But after Soos left, it was seen that the game did not need to be connected to a computer to be running.

When Soos went to the mall, .GIFfany converted herself into electricity and followed him there. Her abilities are based on technology control and hacking. At first impression, she is kind and understanding, but she uses this to manipulate her "boyfriends." After she got Soos' attention, she followed him everywhere.

Her power is limited to technology; if there are no electronic devices, she cannot operate or travel.

Abilities[]

.GIFfany works as a malware or virus, being able to steal data and control computers. She also can infect machines and control them.

Trivia[]

  • The title screen of the game says "shizenhakka" (自然発火), which is Japanese for "spontaneous combustion."
  • The Japanese in the introduction of the game reads: 時魔法のロマンスアカデミーの桜の花びら、咲いている…何が起こるかわかりません。 (Tokimahō no romansuakademī no sakuranohanabira, saite iru… nani ga okoru ka wakarimasen), which means "When the cherry blossoms of magic romance academy are in bloom... anything can happen"
  • A golden maneki-neko (beckoning cat) appears with golden coins when Soos clicks the correct option. Gold Maneki-nekos symbolize wealth.
  • The string of symbols following the "DESTROY AT ALL COSTS!!" is an ASCII-based emoticon representing someone flipping over a table.
  • On the blackboard behind .GIFfany can be seen the time-independent Schrödinger Hamiltonian operator from quantum mechanics.
  • Though the game shares similarities with the visual novel Doki Doki Literature Club (namely the resemblance of .GIFfany and Monika), it is unlikely to be a reference, as Soos and the Real Girl aired three years before Doki Doki Literature Club released.
  • Romance Academy 7 is likely intended to be a reference to the dating simulator Tokimeki Memorial. The checkered backgrounds of the game's interface are strikingly similar to Tokimeki Memorial's, and .GIFfany's hair and outfit are similar in style and color to those of Shiori Fujisaki, Tokimeki Memorial's main love interest.
  • The Amphibia's character Ned from the episode "Thai Feud" wears a Romance Academy 7 shirt, referencing .GIFfany's game.
