Concept art of Ino Rite by Lead Artist, Generica.

Ino Rite is a scrapped character from Hiwata no Nadoko.


In early development, Ino Rite was slated to be Ijimi's best friend. Ino was very fond of Ijimi's boyfriend, Takeshi Mija, and confessed her attraction for him after Ijimi's reputation was ruined.

Ino and Takeshi's relationship was meant to serve as an opportunity for the player to either forgive the pair, or to serve as an optional elimination, for betraying Ijimi.

Reasons for Removal

Ino Rite was originally conceptualized by KGFTBZ, who was the game's coder for much of early development. When KGFTBZ was removed from the Bullied Team, he asked that Ino be removed from the game as well.
