Endings Guide (WiP)

THIS GUIDE IS NOW COMPLETE.

With each of these guides I’ll break it down into each location I went to in order, who I spoke too, and which dialogue options I chose. The key to unlocking each ending is in the ‘inklings’, each ending is earned by triggering a few specific inklings whilst avoiding others. There was a great deal of trial and error involved in finding these out as the differences were often minimal, however this made things slightly easier in some respects as I was able to follow much the same path with many of the endings, only making a few small changes.

Whilst playing through the game, if you are ever unsure where to go at any point, go to the world map and see if the blue ! Is next to the location. If it is, then you know that the inkling is available, fast travel to the location from the world map, then look at the local map to see where the inkling is. Occasionally there may be more than one inkling in the same place, I will specify which one you need to aim for. Also, sometimes, inklings don’t appear, if that happens first try travelling to a location without and inkling then check the world map to see if the inkling has appeared. If that doesn’t work, check the guide to make sure you don’t need to be at night time for it to occur. If you do, go to your house in Takatane and sleep until Night. This shouldn’t occur too often as I put in each individual guide times where I found it necessary to sleep.

Remember, you can speed these inklings up significantly by hitting the back button until you reach the dialogue choices. This is recommended as, frankly, the stories make little sense and sitting through the poor acting, poor writing and poor animations quickly becomes boring.

NOTES
As standard, assume inklings occur during daylight hours, if it requires evening or night, I will specify on each step.

Where I write ‘No conversation’ that simply means you need to trigger the inkling, and there are no dialogue options for you to choose. Once the inkling has finished, you are free to move onto the next one.

After triggering each inkling, use the world map to move direct to the next one, it is much faster than running there and prevents you triggering other inklings by accident (which can happen occasionally).

A cutscene involving Shuzen talking about Nobunaga always occurs at some point. I’ll simply reference this by calling it the ‘Shuzen/Nobunaga cutscene’ when you see this, just travel to wherever you need to be in the following step as the cutcene triggers wherever you choose to travel (ie, if the guide tells you to go to Takatane, travel there to trigger the cutscene then continue as normal).

Many of these endings follow a very familiar path with only a few minor changes. In these cases, follow the Ending path I specify and I’ll just list where the changes occur.

Do NOT go into the main castle building, as you will trigger a different inkling that we don’t want yet. Shinnosuke is at the foot of the stairs before this building near Kiyomari, the Samurai Commander, talk to him there.
12) Takatane. Gome home and sleep until Morning.
13) Takatane. Speak to Kota. Choose "You're pretty good".
14) Amana. Shinnosuke, Kirie. Watch (or skip) their cutscene together then choose "Oh, it's nothing", when available.
15) Takatane. Go home and sleep until Night.
16) Kuchihagahara (night). Speak to Shinnosuke. Choose "Of course.".

22) Takatane. Speak to Shinnosuke. Choose the following options "Of course I will", "I don't want to rebuild Sakurai Clan", and "I‘ll take the dagger".
23) Kuchihagahara. Automatic conversation. Choose "Do what must be done.", "Stop, stay back.” and "Shinnosuke, Everyone", then proceed to keep fighting until you get to the top of Amana castle and kill Shuzen.


Ending 2: With Osei

1) Kuchihagahara. Automatic conversation with farmers. Choose "I've been better”.
2) Takatane. Speak to Kota. Choose "Calm down, kid".
3) Omiki. Cutscene with Araragi. No conversation.

9) Takatane. Speak to Munechika. Choose options "I‘ll think about it" and "they’ll understand someday!"
10) Takatane. Speak to Osei. At this point of the story you need to focus solely on talking to Osei. She will often ask you questions, and to earn this ending you need to answer every question correctly. I’ll list the questions and correct answers after the end of this walkthrough.
Once you have answered enough questions correctly she will move to the vegetable patch where the farmers are working (just above where Kota spends his time mercilessly beheading the grass with his stick of death). When she has moved there, you will know you’ve answered enough questions and can continue on with the story. Osei will only speak/ask questions once per visit, so to trigger more questions you need to leave the area then return. You can just leave and return immediately or continue to work on any inklings that are available. Personally I recommend just travelling back and forth to get this drawn out section of the story over with. It will be random what time of day or night it is when you finish this section, if it is evening or night, sleep until morning then continue with these options if you haven’t done them already.
11) Takatane. Speak to Kota. Choose "You're pretty good".
12) Amana. Shinnosuke, Kirie. Watch (or skip) their cutscene together then choose "Oh, it's nothing", when available.

16) Anywhere. Shuzen/Nobunaga cutscene.
17) Takatane. Osei, Mumechika. Cutscene involving the three of you. No conversation.
18) Minori. Speak to Genjuro. Choose "Okay".
19) Minori. Speak to Shinnosuke. Cutscene where he DOESN’T give you a box. No conversation.
20) Minori. Speak to Yuma. Choose "You’re OK with dying for nothing?", then beat him with blunt attacks in the ensuing fight and escape the castle.
22) Takatane. Speak to Osei. Choose "Let's leave Amana together", then follow the story to the end. It doesn’t matter if you kill Shinnosuke or not.

OSEI QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Osei’s questions will be in bold followed by each correct answer in order. Be warned, the dialogue choices tend to come after lengthy monologues by Osei, so I’ll just list the opening line so you can identify the correct series of answers then hit the back button to skip direct to the choices.

Do any inklings you feel like during this time, they’re not really important, but you need to get about a half dozen or so out of the way. At this point you should be able to go in and see Shuzen. You’ll know when you are able to as 2 inklings will appear in the same place in the middle of the Amana local map.

Ending 15: The Diabolic Wife 1

Exactly the same as ending 10 until step 9, at which point follow these steps:
9) At this point, you need to have 100 kills to be able to trigger the ending, so if you do not have them already, go to either Takatane or Omiki and kill a couple of innocents, then exit and return and speak to the job broker to access the one of the 'Kill 100' jobs, complete it and you will have the necessary kills. You can do this at any time between the start and now, it's position in the unfolding of events is unimportant up to this point, however this is the last opportunity to do make sure you have the necessary number of kills, so make sure you have them.
10)Do any inklings you wish until an inkling appears over Takatane on the world map during the day but doesn't show up on the local map, then go to your house.
12) Takatane. Araragi's maid will appear in front of your house.

4) Minori. Speak to Guard Leader. Choose "I was approached by one of your guys".
5) Road. Cutscene with Setsuen. Speak to him after cutscene until he repeats himself. no conversation options.
6) Minori. Speak to Yuma. Choose "You're working so hard". Once that conversation is finished, speak to him again and choose "Brother and Father?" when the option appears.
7) Kuchihagahara. Cutscene with Yuma and Shinnosuke. No conversation.

10) Road. Cutscene with Setsuen. Speak to him after cutscene and choose "Loud and clear, now don't kill me".
11) Minori. Speak to Yuma. No conversation.
12) At this point you need to keep going back and forth between Minori and anywhere else (I use Kuchihagahara as it's the closest to the castle for getting back). Each time you go to Minori, go and speak to Genjuro. You'll get different conversation options with him similar to how it works with Osei. There is no need to list the conversation choices this time as they are very straight forward. Just read what Genjuro says, then pick the answer that most closely agrees with him or offers to help him/shows him friendship. Just remember that Genjuro is a coward who wants to avoid combat at all costs and prefers to have others do his work for him, and you can't go wrong.
13) Takatane. Speak to Kota. Choose "You're pretty good".
14) Minori. Party cutscene with Genjuro. Choose "Got it, Brother!".
15) Shuzen/Nobunaga cutscene.
16) Minori. Automatic Cutscene with Genjuro. Choose "Then, I'll go with you". Then fight your way through the Fujimori guards, kill Kirie and escape.

Ending 19: With Itsuse

Exactly the same as ending 18 until step 14. From steps 1-12, any time you enter Minori make sure to speak to Itsuse either near the little pond and agree to be her practice partner then beat her and speak to her afterwards or in her room to the south of the map. You need to 'practice' with her about 3 times. At times you will get conversation with her instead, I list the conversations and correct responses below this ending guide. You'll know when you've got it right as she will constantly talk about 'possibly dying tonight'. Once done, continue until step 14 at which point follow these steps:
14) Amana. Speak to Recruiter. Choose "I have skills to prove" then win the ensuing battle.
15) Minori. Speak to Itsuse. "How would I know".
16) Any. Shuzen/Nobunaga cutscene.
17) Minori. Automatic cutscene with Itsuse. Choose "I'm with you, until the end".
18) Amana. Fight (or run) your way to Shuzen and kill him.

ITSUSE QUESTION AND ANSWERS

"When you come face to face with an enemy, what’s the definite way to kill him?"
Remain Calm and Assess the situation

"It’s a quiet night"
"Get some sleep so you can fight better"

"We’ve been talking quite a bit lately"
"Things would be the same"

"…What are you doing up so late"
"The stars are beautiful tonight"
