Ayako Katagiri (片桐 彩子 Katagiri Ayako) is very interested in the arts, primarily visual arts. She admires the work of "Gergi" (a reference to H.R. Giger) and loves to pepper her sentences with seemingly random English phrases.
Ayako does not know how to swim and even goes so far as to skip swimming lessons in gym class to avoid the embarrassment. In the Tokimeki Memorial anime, she asks Nozomi Kiyokawa to give her private swimming lessons.
She’s also the singer of the band club “Irodori”, in the second Drama Series game, Irodori no Love Song, where she’s the heroine, thanks to being one of the most popular character among fans in Tokimeki Memorial.
After she graduates, she plans on going to France to study.
- During Spring, at the karaoke store, she doesn't want to put the mic down.
- During Summer, at the beach, she's afraid to go into the water.
- During Fall, she loses herself (mentally) at the horror art show.
- During Winter, she falls asleep on your shoulders at the planetarium. You get to choose to let her sleep or wake up; if you don't wake her up, she'll tell in her sleep she loves you.
- Also, during school she skips swimming classes at school (But this event reportedly never happens due to a bug).
- Konami organized a character poll on the famous magazine Famitsu, in which the readers would decide which character will become the heroine of the second Drama Series game, Irodori no Love Song. Despite the poll results giving a large victory to Miharu Tatebayashi, for various reasons the producers decided to go with the poll runner-up, Ayako.
