Multiple endings, CG gallery, party guest gallery
This is a core part of the gameplay. Chat logs open for player interaction at specific times of day (including the middle of the night!) and only remain available until the next scheduled one comes up; after that the opportunity to make choices in that chat, and earn hearts/CGs/party guests from it, is lost unless the player spends premium currency.
