I. Background 

In Welcome to Pia Carrot, you play yourself, a young eighteen-year-old who just finished high school. You plan on spending your last summer with your best friend Daishite-kun. However, you previously made a bet with your father concerning your grades. Since your test marks are not desirable, you lose the bet and must live up to your promise by working at your father's restaurant, Pia Carrot. 

What seems like a lame summer of slave labor becomes the greatest and most memorable summer of your life. What makes things interesting are all the cute girls who work at the Pia Carrot and who dine there. 

You already know Shyouko-chan, a childhood friend, and Satomi-chan, a classmate with whom you've had a crush on, will be working with you; yet, as the summer goes by, the interaction with the other girls becomes intense, and you must choose who you want. There are a total of nine girls, Satomi, Shyouko, Reika, Yukiko, Sayori, Airi, Shiho, Kiyomi, and Yukari, to court after. 

Some will be easy to win over while others will require much sacrifices, patience, gentleness, perseverance, and chivalry. Your goal is to fall in love with a girl by the end of the summer, feelings must be mutual, and to have her meet you in the park on August 28th after you call her.

IV. Advanced Tips and Important Dates for Winning a Particular Girl
