Hal Tanaka is a Japanese exchange student of the class of 2011 at Paseo del Mar High School.
In 2010, Hal is studying in the study dome one day after school when he meets Nancy. Nancy eventually finds out that he plagiarized an essay and that Jake Rogers was blackmailing him for it, making him do all of his homework. Hal wants to become a doctor. In the previous year in Warnings at Waverly Academy, Nancy can see that a book was written by him called "A Visitor's Guide to Paseo del Mar", suggesting he had already been there.
Hal's story is pretty much the same in this game, but in 1998.
