The Friend System is divided into 5 stages:
- Special Friends
You start the game with a few random friends.
To increase one's Friendship Rank, they must do something friendly to their partner (Such as talking). After filling up the Friendship Bar, they will usually rank up.
Haters are created for various reasons. You cannot communicate with them unless you randomly bump into one.
Upon enough successful friendly tasks on a Stranger, they will become your Acquaintance.
Upon enough successful friendly tasks on an Acquaintance, they will become your Friend.
You can hire full friends to help with videos.
