Her birthday is the 13th of March.
Yuiko’s route is by far my favorite route in Little Busters!
Ever since I was little, I’ve had a big fear of being forgotten, or forgetting people… but stories about such scenarios really draw me in. A lot of Key Novels have plots based around a amnesiac scenario, as far back as ONE That Misaki Kawana ending~ <3 however I believe Little Busters did it best.
In Yuiko’s route we get a good love story, with a sense that something in the background is going wrong. There is an original ending, and an ending that is unlocked after completing Refrain. The overall route is pretty cryptic, and relies on other routes to explain it in a way that makes sense. If you think hard enough about everything we learn about the secret of the world, you should be able to piece everything together~ Ahaha~
In the original ending, (Refrain spoilers here!) Kyousuke’s plan to make Riki and Rin stronger, by resetting the world, kicks into action, and the world begins to reset. Yuiko becomes too attached to Riki, and uses her dreamer powers to mess with the fake world. Kyousuke tries to force the world to reset, and as a side effect Riki becomes aware of the reset. He tries to stay together with Yuiko, but unfortunately he isn’t strong enough, and the world is reset.
After completing Refrain, the VN time-skips to the start of Fall, after the trip to the beach.
Riki sends a message to Yuiko, as he remembers the events of her route. This leads to Yuiko fulfilling her promise by confessing to Riki~
At least… that’s how I interpreted it
