Aye, Rin would be shoegazer. Maybe Psychedelic Folk?

Emi brings to mind the Rocky theme song.

One of two things for Hanako. Some shitty emo music, or if she has taste, probably a slower indie song. I can't think of one that fits though. Perhaps even early Modest Mouse. Dramamine seems fitting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK1bi4emEkk

Lilly seems like a classy lady. Obviously classical music, especially Mozart.

Misha is J-pop.

Shizune completely escapes me.

Misha: Let's Get Retarded - Black Eyed Peas.

For a less troll song pick, Full Swing - Yui Horie from the Toradora! Character Song Album. The way Yui AKA Minori Kushieda says "Wahaha~" in the song is somewhat close to what I always imagined Misha does in my head when playing KS, minus it being a part of a song melody of course.

Emi:

for obvious reasons

Lilly:

Shizune could be "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode but this could also work

In the lonely night,
A cold rain falls.
If I close my eyes,
I can feel your presence.

It was no coincidence that we met;
That could only be called "fate".

Because you are the only person
To have taught me this single shred of love,
Even in the darkness,
Or against any tempest,
I will be able to cut through and go on.

More than power,
Just a single shred of love
Can turn into a yet-unseen strength.
This promise I have kept in the depths of my heart -
Please don't yield!
Please don't ever yield!

The rain is intensifying;
Trying to shelter from it is futile.

That day, I realized that
Somewhere in my heart, it had been awakened.

Only I
Will be always by your side,
Believing in you completely,
And despite the scars or any pain,
I know you will be able to stand up.

More than saying anything,
I want to be always by your side,
Gazing at you with a smile.
Until the day I convey my feelings,
I won't be defeated!
I'll never be defeated!


Because you are the only person
To have taught me this single shred of love,
Even in the darkness, or against any tempest,
I will be able to cut through and go on.
The refrain is what I found most fitting for the student council president.

Hanako's in game theme reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OmXfF_53Xw
but I would also choose this for her:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbnD7sVCBOE
In you and I, there's a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
What's left of me
What's left of me now?

I watch you fast asleep
All I fear means nothing
In you and I, there's a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
What's left of me,
What's left of me?

(So many ups and downs)
My heart's a battleground
(I need true emotions)
(I need more affection than you know)
(I need true emotions)

You show me how to see
That nothing is whole and nothing is broken
In you and I, there's a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away,
Music inside
I need more affection than you know (reversed)
What's left of me,
What's left of me now?

My fears, my lies..
Melt away

I need more affection than you know (reversed)
Lyrics just because many things can not be deciphered.


My grasp on Rin is not very good and not all of my music collection is available to me now, so I will improvise and try to show an aspect of her: The unique appeal she has to me.

I can't believe no Chocolate Rain for Hanako. :?

But seriously, I can see:

Hanako- Slipknot, something like People = Shit (no pun intended) or Surfacing
Shizune- Ride of the Valkyries
Lilly- Classical music, like Beethoven or Mozart (too proper for anything else I can think of)
Emi- Something motivational, I'd say Eye of the Tiger, or maybe some crazy fast metal like Dragonforce
Rin- Could be a couple things. Some chill music like Tiesto, or something incredibly off the wall like MSI.
Misha- I agree with the J-pop mentioned before
Kenji- MSI could fit in with him, but I think something like rap or whatever, just because of the total bashing of females in almost ever song.
Hisao- Speedcore!!! Hehe no not really. just listening to that could destroy his heart. I really can't tell since he gets a different personality depending on which girl (or none) you are going after.

Indeed. Although I think just about all tge attitudes he could take could be represented with a Ride song.

The official band of contemplative, oversensitive, lovelorn, angst-ridden, young men.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAT-5MTRrPo Chill out, take a step back, get used to your new surroundings and take things in stride (Rin, Lilly)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J-tkATHem8 No! Don't accept life with a disability. Push yourself, overcome your limitations, rise from the ashes (Shizune, Emi)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQA8Ztjzwfw& Prettymuch any bad end (except the loser ones where you don't even try)

And I don't know what he'll start thinking with Hanako, other than "ZOMG shes so MOE!"

Doesn't have to be rap to bash females.

Let's see these are my picks

Shizune: Control by Puddle of Mud
A bit of a weird choice perhaps yes, but you have to remember that Shizune loves games and loves to win/be in control. Also these "pent up frustration/quiet/geeky" achetypes usually end up being pretty kinky which fits the rest of the song :)
I like to teach you all the rules
I get to see them set in stone
I love it when you chain me to the bed
There you see what is never shown
I can't control you
You can't control me
I need to feel you
I think you know all the rules
There's no expressions on your face
I hope someday you will let me go
Release me from my dirty cage
Either that or possibly "Memories by Within Temptation"
All of my memories hold you near
In silent moments, imagined you'd be here
Your Silent whispers, Silent Tears
Made me promise I'd try
To find my way back in this life
I hope there is a way
To give me a sign that you're ok
Emi: It's not my Time by 3 Doors down
I actually had the hardest time placeing Emi. She has the least character developement so far in act one imho. She is a strong character though and so I think this song fits.
I look ahead to all the plans that we made
And the dreams that we had
I'm in a world that tries to take them away
Oh but I'm taking them back
This life we live, it's not what we have
It's what we believe in
It's not my time
I'm not going
There's a fear inside me
But it's not showing
This could be the end of everything I know
But it's not my time
I'm not going
Or possibly Fully Alive by Flyleaf
All my complaints shrink to nothing
I'm ashamed of all my somethings
She's glad for one day of comfort
Only because she has suffered
Fully alive, more than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
Now she knows how to believe in futures
Hanako: Absolutely by Nine Days
This just reminds me of Hanako and how I think the main character would feel towards her
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles
Rin: No Rain by Blind Melon
I've actually never HEARD this song before. I can't play it right now since I don't want to wake my boyfriend up. I may post another song for rin later. But I was just browsing lyrics and these seem to totally fit. So this song was chosen solely for the lyrics. It seems incoherrent like her and kinda like the point of view in the song is someone who wastes time aimlessly like Rin, that is as someone who lives life *trying to be without a purpose*.
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And just speak my point of view
But it's not sane, it's not sane
And I don't understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
Lily: Peaceful Easy Feeling by the Eagles
Chose this because of how Lily makes Hisao feel at ease when they are together
I get a peaceful easy feeling
And I know you won't let me down
Cuz I'm already standing on the ground
Kenji: Jumper by Third Eye *Blind*
I chose this song because of Kenji's ending in act 1. Also because of a few key phrases here or there
"The *angry boy* a bit too *insane*
*Icing over the secret pain*
*You're the first to fight, you're way too loud
You're a burst of light on a burial shroud
I know something's wrong*
Well, everyone I know has got a reason, to say, put the past away
*I wish you would step back from the ledge my friend*
And if you do not want to *see* me again
I would understand
Hisao: Injection by Rise against
I dunno seemed kinda fitting because he is weak, can't run (knees), can't breathe because of his heart condition, and has forgotten how to love/care about others at the begining of act 1. And takes alot of drugs to stay alive.
There's a light turned off inside your heart
Do you remember what it's like to care?
Knees are weak, Hands are Shaking, I can't breathe
So give me the drug, Keep me alive
Give me what's left of my life
Don't let me go

Shizune:

Why? Just remember the Risk-scene ;)

Hanako:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9d8DBaaRqUg
Why? The distance she keeps reminds me a little bit of Yorda, though both of them are way too different in other aspects.

Emi:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gKVvo9qF80
Why? Because she's peppy.

Kenji:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RegzUvYZ7E
Why? Listen to the lyrics, they are weeeeird, but fun!

Meh, saw the thread, so I kept track of what I thought while I was listening to music. This is what I came up with.

Hisao - "Love Her Madly" by The Doors
Kenji - "Fooling Yourself" by Styx
Lilly - "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Hanako - "Riders on the Storm" by The Doors
Shizune - "Face to Face" by Foreigner
Misha - "Don't Bring Me Down" by Electric Light Orchestra
Emi - "Runnin' Down a Dream" by Tom Petty
Rin - "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly (the full 17:05 version)

(I dodged the obvious troll answers like "Light My Fire")

Lilly: Classical and elevator music...
Emi: Anything thy play at the gym and DDR music.
Rin: MIA and any weird experimental electronica...
Shizune: Aggressive music. The soundtracks for action movies, metal, and gangster rap. Seriously.
Misha: Heavy metal for being loud. But also cutesy Asian pop.

Hisao: Folk and alternative rock.
Kenji: Rap. The really mysoginistic kind.
Teacher: Broadway music. Not sure why.

This is Shizune's theme only when she's playing Risk.

Enjoy your trauma, Hisao
