Okay, so this is a Romance RP, taking place in a school on the fictional northern Japanese island of Natsujima. Be forewarned of little shades of fantasy coming into play at times. Roleplayers will be students at a high school, Aijo Kotogakko, playing either returning students, or, preferably, new ones. Weíll have some NPC teachers for you to use now and then but you can probably guess - classes wonít be the main focus of the RP! Although, just for moving the narrative, Suzaku and I will be playing the senior staff members - the headmaster, and the school secretary, respectively. (Yes, the idea of a school has been done many times but itís a fairly easy structure to follow.)
Oh, and once more people join, there will be more details on the island itself and whatnot, just as background info. Itís not on there yet as a wall of text isnít that attractive xD Trust us, everything has been meticulously planned.
THE ISLAND - NATSUJIMA
There is only one town on the entire island. It maintains a clean atmosphere opposite to that found in some of the more crowded areas in the mainland. The town itself sprawls over a third of the large island, but despite its great size very little side effects like modernization exist. The small specialty restaurants are dominant and the odd culture along with the easy-going nature of the islanders allow many odd stores, such as the talisman maker in the western district and the bookbinder in the southern to thrive. The island is more or less shaped like an animal's paw, three bridges of land extending from the main "pad" like big bear claws. The middle claw is home to the namesake Natsuyuki cliffs. Travel by by tourists and researchers is made difficult by the large mountain splitting the island, and the forests covering almost every inch of the island save for the city and the beaches. The northern district of the town is actually built just above the base of the mountain, however the roads only go so far as that. The forest begins just after and contains an impressive assortment of large animals, further discouraging those not familiar. However, the blue snow of those cliffs are but a drop in the bucket of the magical aura present on this island.
Outside of the city there are several defining marks reachable by foot. Shinsei Temple for one, is located a mere kilometer up the mountain from the end of the northern district. The way is easy enough to recognize- just follow the mossy steps up until the old temple becomes visible just beyond the fifth red arch. It is surprisingly well-kept by the old priest and his young apprentice, despite the obviously gargantuan amount of labor required to do so. For the more adventurous of the travelers a travel down to the west shoreline to visit the hut of the self-sufficient hermit Pang Tan is in order. The majority of the island remains shrouded in mystery, so the discovery of new phenomena would not be entirely surprising. There is a popular beach just a hundred meters away from a western style diner on the edge of the east district. While other beaches scattered around the island would be less crowded, they are also more difficult to reach. However every year there are always students from the academy who make the trek to the vacant beaches for a romantic night under the stars.
Among the other ocurences on the island is the appearance of a snowfield on the opposite slope of the mountain to the town, which for a month in December becomes home to a small population of kitsune fox spirits. There is also an island reachable by a small boat from Natsujima that is dominated by an inactive volcano. This also happens to be the summer training ground for many of the academy's clubs.

Anything to know about their parents? Are they divorced? Do they have siblings? Anything we should know? A nice touch would be including why theyĎve gone to Aijo Kotogakko - perhaps theyĎve transferred? Moved?)
