Ichiban Kasuga will eventually be able to assist Eri Kamataki in rebuilding the Ichiban Confectionery company which was on the verge of bankruptcy. Eri, who used to be the company's representative, will become the secretary for the newly-appointed company president Kasuga.
You will need to properly manage funds and personnel; each staff member has their own performance level that can be improved with investments. Once you have gathered enough profit, you can expand the company's business by purchasing other buildings and businesses. But you also need to keep an eye on rival companies that will try and impede your profits.
There are also Shareholder Meetings where Kasuga will debate with shareholders to retain their support. Complaints will be directed towards specific categories like personnel, items, or funds. And selecting proper replies such as apologizing or seeking opinions from staff members will help persuade shareholders.
A shareholder meeting can be won when all shareholders have been persuaded or at least 50% support rate is achieved at the end. The results will affect the company's stock price as well as the remuneration for Kasuga.
