Just simply walk up to any tree with fruit in it, the bushes won't count, and keep pressing the button to shake the tree. Do this 15 times and the achievement unlocks.
Bear With Me - 10
Defeat 10 enemies as the bear.
In the 2nd chapter of the game (Leaving Home) you will see a cut scene where the samurais are putting a bear into a cage. Simply use Hiro's spirit form kuji magic (select the spell with and then hit to use the spell) and take control of the bear. Just use the bear and attack (the button) 10 samurais with it. There are more than enough samurai to kill between the area with the bear and the end of the level so, just keep killing samurai with the bear until you get the achievement. If you get hit and you lose control of the bear, just simply hit again and take control of the bear again.

Find and free Suzume.
You get Suzume in the second level, shortly after freeing the bear. It's also story related.

- Smooth Sailing - 10
Flawless Great River Canyon rafting.
This one can be tricky. In the canyon level, once you get to the first set of rapids, you must steer your hat-boat clear of all the rocks and cliff ledges the entire way down thru both sets of rapids. If you hit anything, the achievement won't unlock. The way you can check if you've hit anything is by looking at the image of your hat in the upper right corner. If you hold back on the , as it will act like a brake and makes avoiding rocks much easier.
Found Shun - 10
Find and free Shun
Shun can be found near the early part of the level Distress Signal. This is also story related so you can't miss it.
Bow Before Me - 20
Defeat 50 enemies with the bow.
Basically you just have to kill 50 enemies with Shun. A majority, if not all, of this can be done in the same level you get him. Once you free him, just select him () and just spam arrows on every enemy you see in the level. If you don't get 50 kills in this level, just finish the achievement in the next level.
Silent Assas... Ninja - 50
Complete a level without being seen.
Credit goes to vl Demon lv for finding this method.
Once you beat the Great Canyon level, exit out to the main menu and replay the level. All you have to do is go down the main path and jump in the water when you get to it. From there take your hat-boat over to the waterfalls, the 2nd waterfall specifically, and go up the path behind it. The path starts just to the left of the waterfall. Once you reach the top of the waterfalls, go right and you'll see a small ledge. Follow the ledges around until just before reaching a bridge, but don't get too close. Beneath you will be a body of water split into 2 parts by a bunch of rocks. When you can jump to the right side of the rocks, do so. From there, hug the right wall in your hat-boat and just go down the rapids. Once you exit the level, the achievement will unlock. It's that simple.
Don't Blame it on the Sunshine - 10
Bring Sunshine to all the Denizens of the Graveyard
Once you get into the graveyard (Haunted Forest chapter) you'll encounter ghosts. They can only be killed using the Sunrays spell, which you get in the graveyard. Find the shrine, use your detect kuji magic spell to find it, and get the Sunrays spell. Once you get it, you MUST kill all the ghosts with the spell. Once you kill the last ghost, the achievement unlocks.
Now You See Me... - 40
Defeat 100 enemies using stealth attack.
You should get this one before you finish the game. To do a stealth attack, simply hide in a bush, grass, or behind a tree or rock and hit . Once enemies are well enough within range, walk up behind them and hit . It is possible to kill multiple enemies with one stealth attack so if you get the chance to do it, take it. It doesn't matter what character you use either.
Smell You Later - 30
Defeat boss Windy Pants.
This is the boss of the Wind Castle and he uses farts as attacks. He takes 3 sets of attacks to beat. He doesn't move and only has 3 attacks. Basically just wait for him to let out a fart cloud and have it chase you back towards him. From there it would go as follows (, tap , , tap , ). Repeat this 3 times and he's toast. Just watch out for his charged fart attack as the only way to avoid it is to jump at just the right time. You'll know it's coming when he starts to strain loudly.
Found Tora - 10
Find and free Tora.
Tora can be found in the Grassy Hills chapter. This is also story related.
Tripped and Fell - 30
Defeat Boss Timid Swimmer.
This boss is also very easy. There are 3 red pillars that you have to get him to cut down. The first is in the back when you start. Run up the stairs and hide behind it and he'll cut it down. From there you use the button match sequence yet again. (, tap , , , , , ) From there, go right to the 2nd red pillar. Use the sequence (, tap , , , tap , , , ). Then go left to the last red pillar and the final sequence is as follows (, tap , , , , , , , ).

Avalanche - 10
Defeat an enemy as a snowball.
This one can be tricky. In the level after you defeat the Screeching Owl, you'll start off by racing down a mountain to avoid an avalanche. At one point you'll hit a jump and there will be a platform in the middle. The best way to do this is hit the jump full speed ( to boost) and hit the platform in the middle and immediately veer off to the right. Then quickly try to hit a tree or rock to turn into a snowball. From there just roll over an enemy and it unlocks. If you don't get it right away, just let the avalanche get you and try again. (Thanks to here2infirmary for correcting this.)

Stop! Futo Time! - 20
Use Futo in combat on all levels.
Simply use Futo once per level. All you have to do is select him () and fight and kill just 1 enemy per level with him. That's all it takes. The only exception is boss fights.
Restore Balance - 40
Defeat the Evil Samurai Warlord.
This guy is a pain in the ass, mainly because many purple energy balls that act as a shield protect him. The best way to beat him is to spam him with meteor storm. Be sure to kill his minions for a Ki boost when you are running low. After you've killed so many of his orbs, he'll come at you with a blue rain-like attack and he will follow you. This is easy to avoid. Just keep running ( ). Then when he lands again spam him with more meteor storm spells. After you've destroyed most of his orbs he'll really come at you, but this time with lightning. The best way to avoid it is to cast the slow time spell (select it with and then to use it) and it'll slow him down giving you plenty of time to recharge and avoid this attack as it will kill you quickly. He'll eventually come out of the spell and get a few good hits on you regardless, just be ready to heal ASAP. When he lands, finish him off with meteor storm and he's done.

Complete game on easy or medium difficulty.
See "Hard Little Ninja."
Hard Little Ninja - 100
Complete game on hard difficulty.
The difficulty achievements stack so if you give the game a single play through on hard you'll get 3 achievements when you beat the Evil Warlord.

Sorry for the delay folks. Word of advice though. If you ever make a guide for this site, DON'T do it on a desktop. That or email yourself the work. Having your desktop crash on you sucks ass. What sucks more is having to shell out $500 plus for a laptop and a wireless mouse. So again, sorry for the delay and good luck.

Nice guide, shame you have to put up with people like Amazon XD, is that guy for real? You put in hard work, you don't need grief for it.
Anyway I was thinking of getting this game on Friday, how would you rate the game play overall? Worth buying?
