While the console version is not available yet, the arcade version has been out for about a year. Very few people have access to the game, but it is available in a couple of places in the United States, and I have been lucky enough to play the game enough to understand what the achievements are asking for.
The achievement structure is very similar to Blaz Blue, which makes sense, since the console port of Arcana Heart 3 was handled by Arc System Works.
Thanks to the following users on Homing Cancel: Curbeh and Setrajonas for the achievement translations, and paikman being insane enough to drop nearly $3,000 on the game when it first came out.
A note on move and command notations:
Several achievements require you doing one (or several) special moves in certain situations. These special moves are going to be written in what is called Numeric Notation. You should be familiar with it if you have read any strategy about another "anime" fighter (like Blaz Blue, Guilty Gear, Melty Blood, etc.) or most 3D fighters (Virtua Fighter, Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive, etc. -- the one exception being Tekken), but if you have only ever played Capcom/SNK 2D fighters or none at all (although the odds of someone reading this without having played a fighting game before are... remote), it'll look weird.
Explanation of the numeric notation:
The numeric notation is a way of writing/recognizing commands and inputs in fighting games. it takes on the look of the number pad on your keyboard so basically...
7 8 9
4 5 6
1 2 3
1 being down+back, 5 being neutral, and 9 being up+forward, etc.. A, B, C are the light, medium and heavy attack buttons, whereas D is used for what is called Homing (you start flying at your opponent, and can put in directional inputs to influence your flight) and E is used for Arcana specials. The buttons they map to can be changed on the options screen.
X is used for any attack button (A, B, or C) and is common with specials, but the actual nature of the special changes with the button used.
A motion in brackets (such as ) means that direction has to be held for a short duration. Think of something like Guile's sonic booms from Street Fighter, but the charge time is typically shorter.
66 = Forward Dash
44 = Back Dash
66 in the air = Air Forward Dash
44 in the air = Air Back Dash
7_8_9 = Jump
7_8_9 in the air = Double Jump
27_28_29 = Super Jump
866 = Instant Air Dash (also shortened to iad or IAD)
A+D = Throw (can usually be followed up into a combo, but has a somewhat large break window)
4A+D or 6A+D = Alternate Throw (can't be followed up into a combo, but has a small break window)
A+D (at time of getting thrown) = Throw Tech
A+B+C = Extend Force (aka Arcana Force aka activation, requires 100% force gauge, recharges quickly after use)
236A+B+C During Extend Force = Arcana Blaze (gauge recharges slowly after use)
C+E = Arcana Burst (requires 100% force gauge, recharges slowly after use)

Achievementsアルカナさん！力を貸して！ 20 アルカナブレイズで勝利した。
Arcanum! Lend me your power! 20 Win with an Arcana Blaze.
Arcana Blazes are the super moves associated with each arcana, and are only available after you have gone into Extend Force mode (hit A+B+C when the Arcana Force gauge is full (it's right under your character portrait)). Once activated, input 236+A+B+C and finish your opponent (!!! - the round? match?)
This achievement is not possible with the Time or Water arcana, as that Arcana Blaze does 0 damage.
聖女は逆境に輝く 20 エクステンドフォース使用不能中に勝利した。
A Maiden Shines in Adversity 20 Win while unable to perform an Extend Force
Win (!!! - again, round or match?) with your Arcana Force gauge at less than 100%. The Arcana Force gauge will go turn red and go to 0% and then refill over time after an Arcana Burst, Arcana Blaze or Extend Force runs out of time. The gauge fills up much faster in the last case than the first two, so do one of the aforementioned things and finish your opponent before getting back to 100%.
これからもわたしだけを見てね♪60 １キャラクターのRP Levelを10にした。
Look only at me from now on~ 60 Reach an RP Level of 10 with a character.
The game has something called the CHARM system, where as you play and win matches with a specific character, you gain experience which then levels up their CHARM (no, really) and unlock extra colors and voice samples for that character. Level 10 is (presumably) the final level, and at that point they probably want to marry you. Congratulations -- now they just need to exist.
(!!! - the amount of grinding required is unknown, but given the target market and the value of the achievement, it's probably a lot.)
アルカナマスター 20 全アルカナを使用した。
Arcana Master 20 Use all the arcana.
Play a full match with each of the 23 Arcana in the game. You can choose which Arcana to use after choosing your character, and you just need to finish one match with each arcana.
すっごい勝利！ 20 クリティカルハートで勝利した。
Amazing Victory! 20 Win with a critical heart.
Critical Hearts are basically the Level 3 supers of this game, as they require your special meter to be maxed out to level 3 in order to be used. The command and result are different for each character, but the goal is the same regardless -- hit your opponent with it and finish them off with said move.
Somehow, an amazing victory! 20 Win with a Critical Heart Extend.
A Critical Heart Extend is a Critical Heart while performed in Extend Force and do more damage in this instance. Basically, you need all three special meters and then activate into Extend Force (A+B+C), and then hit your opponent with a Critical Heart before the Extend Force ends and defeat them with said move. Yeesh.
居合の神髄 15 １ラウンド中に【影宿】【枯霊】【逝斬】【九石】を全て決めた。
The true meaning of Iai 15 Playing as Kaumi, In a single round, use Kagesuki, Kodama, Wazabane and Kuishi, and win that round.
This achievement must be done while playing as Kamui. The special moves are as follows, but have a condition -- you must use Kunugi (22+X) before each move to power up to each aforementioned move. Each charge costs life and is lost after one use. So you will need to charge at least four times in the round and use all four moves and win.
Kagesuki - 41236+X with a Kunugi charge.
Kodama - 6+X with a Kunugi charge.
Wazabane - In the air, 22+X with a Kunugi charge.
Kuishi - 214+X with a Kunugi charge.
ぬいぐるみコレクション 15 【身代わりの術】成功時に稀に出現するぬいぐるみを累計２０個以上出した。
Stuffed Doll Collection 15 Collect more than 20 of the dolls that sometimes appear when you use Konoha's "Kawarimi no Jutsu"
This achievement must be done playing as Konoha. Kawarimi no Jutsu (41236+X) is her counter teleport move, and has to be timed against an enemy attack. When successful, sometimes a doll will pop up where she was, and you need to grab more than 20 of these.
春日の陣立て 15 連続技中に【退魔の瑞鶴】と【破魔の獅子吼】を両方ヒットさせた。
Maori's Battle Formation 15 In a single combo, land both Hama no Shishiku and Taima no Zuikaku
This achievement must be done playing as Maori. Both of these moves are supers, so you need at least 2 special meters to do this. Hama no Shishiku (421+A+B) calls Maori's older sister (from a helicopter?) to do a divekick and then punch them away, and Taima no Zuikaku (63214+A+B) calls her younger sisters on giant, flaming paper cranes. The trick here is that only the first part of Hama no Shishiku will hit if your opponent is in the air... but you can still hit them afterward.
I would give you a combo for this, but I never play Maori.
あなたの愛は精霊界より広く 60 全キャラクターのRP Levelを３にした。
Your Love Expands From The Spirit World 60 Reach RP Level 3 with all characters.
Similar to the achievement Look only at me from now on~, but you need to get all of the characters to Level 3 instead of one character to Level 10. Again, this is probably going to take a good amount of grinding, as you have to do it across all 23 characters.
愛は絶対勝つんだよ♪ 15 【STORY】 モードをはぁとで愛のアルカナを使用してクリアした。
Love will always win♪ 15 【STORY】 Clear Story Mode with Heart using the Love Arcana.
This achievement must be done playing as Heart. Go into Story Mode, choose Heart, choose the Love arcana (her default), and go on to finish Story Mode. Straightforward enough.
気高さの証明 15 【ガルフ・ダグザ】（ＥＦ）を余分なボタン入力なく最後まで成功させた。
Proof of Nobility 15 Successfully perform a full Gulff Dagda (in Extend Force) without hitting any extra buttons.
This achievement must be done playing as Saki. Gulff Dagda is her Critical Heart, and the input is the following: 6412346A+B 2A 2B 5B 5B 5C 5E 2E 5D 5B 5C 8C 2C 5E.
Normally, you can just mash the buttons and change the stick direction to get the move out. However, for this achievement, you must perform the critical heart with no extraneous button inputs. You will need to input each button fairly quickly, and the timing changes after the 2E as the air moves hit twice (when done in Extend Force).
This must be done while in Extend Force too, so you probably want to try this in training mode. There's no secret to this; you just need to practice the move.

聖女マスター 20 全キャラクターを使用した。
Maiden Master 20 Use all the characters
23 characters, each of whom must be played for at least one match. You can just go into Versus and pick a character, play the match (you can set it to one round, even), pick another character, etc..
終わる世界 10 【STORY】モードでバッドエンドを見た。
End of the World 10 【STORY】 Reach a bad end in story mode.
This achievement can only be earned in Story mode. Basically, get to the last fight for a given character, lose, and don't continue. Instead of getting a typical Game Over screen, you get an alternate ending, which involves Japan sinking into the ocean. Oops.
命の司たる聖霊錬金術師 40 【SCORE ATTACK】でパラセ・ルシアを倒した。
The Spirit Alchemist Worthy of Commanding Life 40 【SCORE ATTACK】 Beat Parace l'sia in Score Attack.
This achievement can only be earned in Score Attack. Parace L'sia was the final boss of Sugoi! Arcana Heart 2, and she's back as the final boss in score attack. Rules are (presumably) the same as in Blaz Blue, and the same 2P join-in exploit should work too (unless they fixed that...).
As for help beating her? (I haven't even seen her yet, to be honest.)
努力は聖女のたしなみ 10 【TRANING】を15分間連続で続けた。
Effort is a Maiden's Hobby 10 Use Training Mode for more than 15 minutes straight.
This one is self-explanatory, but it must be done in Training mode. Go into training, practice combos, setups and whatever else with your waifu^H^H^H^H^Hfavorite character for 15 minutes, get an achievement. This must be done in one sitting.
I Did My Best! 10 【STORY】 Clear Story Mode.
This achievement must be done in Story mode, but it's another straightforward achievement. Pick a character and beat everyone until the credits roll. Difficulty does not matter.
I Really Did My Best! 20 【STORY】 Clear Story Mode on the highest difficulty.
This achievement must be done in Story mode. It's the exact same achievement as I Did My Best!, except that difficulty matters.You must have the CPU difficulty turned all the way up in the Options menu to unlock this achievement.
とにかくすっごいがんばったね！30 【STORY】 モードの全てのエンディングを見た。
Somehow, I Really Did My Best! 30 【STORY】 Reach all of the endings in Story Mode.
This achievement can only be earned in Story mode. Have fun with this one; you have to get all of the endings, both good and bad.
真の聖女への道 10 【RANKED MATCH】 で初めて対戦をした。
The Road to being a True Maiden 10 Play your first Ranked Match
You can only earn this achievement playing a Ranked Match on Xbox Live. The achievement, translated, says you only need to play a Ranked Match, but the icon would hint that you need to win it. No big deal either way as it's just one game, but you'll have some "fun" trying to play people online until the US/Europe release comes.
CG Gallery Complete! 40 【GALLERY】 Unlock all of the CGs in the Gallery
Each character has their own set of CGs. You need to unlock them all; this should happen during the normal course of earning all of the other achievements, but the exact method is not known (yet).
アニメギャラリーコンプリート！60 【GALLERY】 で全リンクアニメを開放した。
Animation Gallery Complete! 60 【GALLERY】 Unlock all of the animated sequences in the Gallery.
Each character also has a series of animations; mainly used as the sidebar animations when you are playing in 4:3 mode (which is how the arcade game is) and when you perform a Super or Critical Heart. Again, the unlock method is not known at this time (I'll have to go back and back-fill this once it's known, derp.)
Conquer Every Maiden! 20 【NETWORK】 Fight against all of the characters in Network mode.
This achievement can only be earned in Ranked Matches or Player Matches on Xbox Live. You have to finish a match against every character; who you choose or if you win or lose does not matter. Thankfully, Japanese players are not nearly as likely to rage quit upon losing.
This achievement is also boostable; just get into a two-player game with a friend and just play one round with each character. Pick their default Arcana as well, for the next achievement.
Conquer Every Arcana! 20 【NETWORK】 Fight against all of the arcana in Network mode.
This achievement can only be earned in Ranked Matches or Player Matches on Xbox Live. You have to finish a match against every Arcana; who you choose or if you win or lose does not matter. Thankfully, Japanese players are not nearly as likely to rage quit upon losing.
This achievement is also boostable; just get into a two-player game with a friend and just play one round with each Arcana. Pick the default character for that Arcana as well, for the previous achievement achievement.
(Yes, I just did copy and paste the text as the two achievements are nearly identical.)
みんな、よろしくね♪ 10 【PLAYER MATCH】で初めて対戦をした。
Thanks, everyone♪ 10 【PLAYER MATCH】 Play your first Player Match.
This achievement can only be earned in Player Matches on Xbox Live. If you boosted the previous two achievements, you should already have this achievement. If you did not, you just need to join a Player Match game and play one match out.
Full Power 15 Hit an opponent with the Extend Force version of Shunkoku, and get maximum damage.
This achievement must be done playing as Akane. Shunkoku is her Critical Heart, and the input for it is 632146+A+B, and this has to be done while in Extend Force (A+B+C with a full Arcana Force gauge). There's a catch, though. You can mash buttons during the animation of the move, and this makes the move do more hits and more damage. You need to land this move in Extend Force, and mash it up all the way to maximum damage.
Bonus tip: in the current arcade version, you can cancel the recovery after the last hit of the Extend Force version into an Arcana Blaze. Not necessary for the achievement, but it will probably kill your opponent.
If you have one of those MadCatz or Hori sticks, they have turbo switches on them. This may be a good time to use them.

大封呪・薙鎌 15 【封呪・鳴神】（ＥＦ）の追加入力を成功させた。
Fuujyu Nagigama 15 Hit with the full EF version of Fuujyu Narukami.
This achievement must be done playing as Nazuma. Fuujyu Narkuami is Nazuma's Critical Heart, and the motion for it is 641236A+B [4 ･ 2 ･ 4 ･ 2 ･ 4 ･ 2 ･ 4 ･ 2 ･ 4 ･ AB]. The part in the bracket is the motion you input after the Critical Heart connects. You also have to do this in Extend Force (A+B+C with a full Arcana Force gauge).
It'll be obvious when you did the move correctly -- the move does its full damage and your opponent moves slower for the next 5 game ticks (7.5 seconds). Whereas if the second part of the input is wrong, both you and your opponent will slow down for about 2 ticks (3 seconds) and you take some damage yourself.
トランプウーマン 15 １試合中にドロシーのトランプ手役を全て成立させた。
Card Woman 15 Use all of Dorothy's poker hands in a match.
This achievement must be done playing as Dorothy. Dorothy, as a character, is a little weird. Most of her specials also lay down cards, and when you create a valid poker hand the cards spring to life and make your opponent's life more difficult. You must land each possible hand once in the same match.
First, how to set cards:
236+X sets a Jack, the follow-ups (push either A, B, or C) then lay a Queen and then a King.
214+X done on the ground lays a 10 on the ground, and an Ace in the air.
The suit of the card is determined by the button you use. A puts out a club, B puts out a diamond, C puts out a heart, and A+B (the super variant, which costs 1 meter) puts out a spade.
Dorothy's Misdirection super (412364+A+B or 463214+A+B) will also lay a Joker, which can be used in a hand and will automatically be used to create the highest possible value hand.
Now for the actual hands needed for the achievement:
７５秒もガマンさせた罪は重いぞ！ 15 【切ない想いを受け止めて】の最終段階版をヒットさせた。
This is what you get for making me wait 75 seconds! 15 Hit with the max charge version of Please Stop my Sadness.
This achievement must be done playing as Angelia. Please Stop My Sadness is a charge special, done by holding an attack button (A, B, or C) for a period of time (minimum of 10 seconds on the game clock, which actually translates to 15 real seconds) and then releasing. The button can be switched mid-charge, but at least one of the three buttons must be held down, which means you can not enter Extend Force while charging this move.
The final charge level takes 50 game seconds (out of a 60 unit timer), which works out to 75 real seconds. On the upside, when the move hits it does about 60% damage, can not be blocked, and is fully invincible. Broken!... OK, not really.

I was playing Guilty Gear Overture earlier and looked at someones gamercard from Japan and they had this game but all the achievement descriptions were in English.
Anyone know what's up with that?
