Harumi Makino is a potential love interest in Lover Pretend. At the start of the game, he is introduced as your coworker, as you work through auditions for a new movie. If Harumi's shy personality interests you, we are here to help.

In this guide, we are going to go over how to fully complete Harumi's route. This consists of every answer needed to get his Happy Ending, as well as the Good and Bad Endings. As usual, there will be no spoilers here, just the answers you need to give. First, let's take a look at how to get through the prologue of Lover Pretend.


The prologue of the game does not involve Harumi; it's meant to get you familiar with the game, as well as participate in your first Pretend Time.

Typically, failing a Pretend Time can impact the story. The prologue is a practice, so you can get an answer wrong and face no consequences.

Below, you can find the correct answers for this section.

  • Just because.
  • He's an idiot.
  • No, but we will.
  • Like lovers.

                      Harumi's Good Ending

                      After getting Harumi's Happy Ending, you can also get his Good Ending. This isn't bad, but it definitely isn't as satisfying as the Happy Ending.

                      To get Harumi's Good Endings, head back to the start of Episode Five and give the following answers.

                      Episode Five

                      • Go home.
                      • What?!

                        • Don't choose an answer!
                        • Don't choose an answer!
                        • Don't choose an answer!
                        • We’ve kissed.
                        • Show him a photo.

                        These choices will cause you to fail the Pretend Time.

                        Episode Six

                        • I’m interested, but…
                        • Pretend Time:
                          • Don't choose an answer!

                          • Don't choose an answer!
                          • This is embarrassing.
                          • Don’t make fun of anime!

                          These choices will cause you to fail the Pretend Time.

                          After the Pretend Time in Episode Six, you will be on track for the Good Ending. In this route, you will not proceed forward to Episode Seven.

                          Harumi's Bad Endings

                          In addition to Good and Happy Endings, there are also four Bad Endings that you can obtain. Like the Bad Endings for other characters, Harumi's are pretty short in terms of requirements.
