Enlightenment is a mysterious perk that is gained by reading the manga called Life Note, or playing the game that has "Boost ?????" over it in the gaming club.


The only way to increase Yandere-chan's Enlightenment level is by reading Life Note, which can be found across the rooftop, then later put in her bedroom at night. When Yandere-chan reads the manga at night, she arrives at school one hour late, at 8:00 AM. While she is sacrificing school time, she is still developing her Enlightenment level.

Enlightenment has no practical functionality or any effect on gameplay at the moment. It is connected to a game that YandereDev started developing several years ago before he started working on Yandere Simulator. As soon as Yandere Simulator is completed, he will start working on that game. In the future, collecting and reading the Life Note manga will lead to an Easter Egg that will allow the player to learn more about the game after Yandere Simulator is completed.
