|HOW TO GET YOUR GIRL FAQ|


Q1: How do I get my girlfriend back?

A: You choose who ever you like from the girls in the game.

Q2: I've chosen the girl I want, but how do I get her to love me?

A: Get Love Ups.

Q3: How do I get Love Ups?

A: You can get them by talking to them and in battle (Impressing them).

Q4: What's the difference getting Love Ups by talking to them and in battle?

A: Talking can lead to some events that can give high Love Ups (encounter them
luckily) and in battle you get little Love Ups, but when continuously leveling
up status you get more.

Q5: What gives? In battle I try to impress the other girl the same way I do to
the other girl and one gets Love Down and the other Love up?

A: They have different attitudes, some of them are the same and others not.
Example (Kanare) that blonde is kind of hard to impress breaks heart when you
get hurt sometimes, and (Izumi) when healed.

Q6: Can I get more girls to love me?

A: You can get them all but friends, keep their heart bar in constant but almost
full and HEY! HEY! Your mission is to get your girlfriend back not girlfriends.

Q7: I got caught in the middle, two or more girls heart bar got full and I want
only the girl I like, how can I solve this?

A: Simply leave it alone. Because whoever gets her love bar full first, is the
winner and that's that.

Q8: I get special events in the game, how do I get more?

A: Usually visiting all the places every time, but I really don't know how to
get them properly yet. It might involve the heart bars of the girls.

Q9: In Takagawa mode is it true that more events occur on summer?

A: Yes, you know what you get on summer events. Take a hint "BIKINI".

Q10: I heard that you get special ending for the specific girl I chose?

A: YES! YOU DO! And sorry can spoil it.

============================
: ANCIENT (Blue Moon) MODE :
============================

INTRO

You've been teleported back to the ancients. You will meet this beautiful girl
with a long dark blue hair and she will talk to you in brief. Now you have to
name yourself. HELLO! HELLO!! Anybody know Japanese? Its OK if you use numbers
if you like, but that's gonna be silly try 007 "The name is Bond James Bond".
The words are completely in "Kana" if you use it by naming yourself. If you know
"Kana" that's good. But if you don't, here are some examples I named myself, I'm
still not good with "Kana" though but it's better than nothing.


AT THE FIRST NAME TYPE (Last name in front for Japanese)

First Row: eighth character    "Ku"
First Row: eleventh character  "Sa"
Second Row: sixth character    "Na"
Fourth Row: fifth character    "Gi"

 The word is "Kusanagi"


AT THE LAST NAME TYPE (First name in last for Japanese)

First Row: sixth character     "Ka"
First Row: ninth character     "Ke"
Third Row: eleventh character  "Ru"
And finalize it by pressing it to OK.

 The word is "Kakeru"

AT THE OTHER NAME TYPE (Nickname?)

Fifth Row: eighth character    "Bu"
Third Row: eleventh character  "Ru"
Sixth Row: tenth character     "U"
Third Row: third character     "Mu"
Sixth Row: tenth character     "U"
First Row: fifteenth character "N"


The word is "Burumuun" in English "Bluemoon"

So your name will be Kakeru Kusanagi and Bluemoon I don't know what the
other name is for Nickname maybe. But I named it in to Bluemoon.


After talking with her you will be at this magnificent room. Now go
outside and you will be choosing where to go. Check all of them in order
1-9 except for your place No.4 Now I will explain them in an aligned way.
Now let's meet the gals shall we. If you have Dual Shock you will have some
effects like heartbeat. "Feel the love"

Now check the first option, you will see this beautiful girl you met and
her name is "Chihaya".

Now check the second option, you will meet a cute girl named "Aoi".

Now check the third option, you will meet a beautiful blonde named
"Kanare".

Now check the sixth option, you will meet a cute friendly elf named
"Mizuho".

Now check the seventh option, you will meet the fairies named
"Nitsuki" and "Fushumi".

Now check the eighth option, you will meet this strange girl named ????,
try to check and go back eight option and you will see her again. But when
you talk to her she disappears.(Asking me what's her name? It's Izumi)

Now check the ninth option, you will meet a tomboy named "Narumi" what a big
girl. Talk to her again and you will enter the dungeon alone. You will fight a
monster lady called "Supirikiea". Give her you best shot but, you will be
defeated but not game over.


You will be back at "Chihaya" place and she is relieved you made it back
and was worried. Now your back at your house (I thought the room upstairs is
mine?) and "Mizuho" is there talk to her then leave. At this moment you have to
choose your party (Two only). Go to the girl you want and talk to her and if an
option pops out choose the second option. Now the person will be in your party.
Now after choosing your party, go leave and check the ninth option and enter the
cave.



THE QUEST BEGINS


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Do some level build ups in the main hall of the dungeon, before going
through your quest, learning the healing spells and others will help you.
Try to reach Level 3-4 or so on if you like. (These also does Love Ups)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once inside the cave, when you go straight ahead you will see a big green
crystal and here you can save. You can only save here not everywhere. Now your
destination is heading towards East, let the compass above your right be your
guide. On the East entrance keep heading towards its path until you reach the
altar, but you will encounter a guardian and defeat it to open the door to reach
there.

================
PURPLE FLAMES x3

HP/
================

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: The guardians are skulls with purple flames on them they are easy
just watch "Chihaya's" HP. If you have raised your level and learned the
healing spells use it to heal a party member.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once there you will see the altar, with two treasure chest on each side.
Take the items first, then check the altar twice and you will hear a rumble
outside the main hall. Go back to the main hall then head West. When there you
will see a rock plate elevator with a purple light underneath it. Now step on
the elevator and you will be at the West entrance, also there you will see a
treasure chest take the item. Now go to the West entrance and keep heading
towards its path until you reach a big door. Go inside and go straight to the
steps and get the key from the statue. After you get the key leave the dungeon
and save from the surface where "Narumi" is.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: You can either walk going back to the surface or use the hero's magic
teleport. At this method your status will be fully recovered.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now back at the cave, now enter the dungeon and proceed going North. Just
proceed going North and ignore the statues until you reach there. When you
reached the entrance inside you will see a floating plate of rock, and another
entrance going North East. Hop in the floating rock plate, watch out don't fall.
If you do fall just climb back up and do the process again. When you do hop in
the floating rock plate, just wait in until you see an entrance in the middle of
the tower above, if you do just jump in. There is a treasure box here, take the
item and it's an amulet. Now jump down and save at the crystal below. If you
arrived the room, you will be at this big room, explore like "Lara Croft" look
around. You will find three treasure chest here. As you proceed exploring you
will see an ancient ruin and there is a floating green light around it. Take the
glowing green light, but actually it's a key. After taking the key go Northeast
entrance at that place, but not North West because that's where you came from. I
hope I didn't confuse you, but be sure you've got the key from the ancient ruin.
Once at the North East entrance this place is a thin hallway with grass on each
side. Along the way you will see a treasure chest, pick up the item. Now proceed
to its path by going West to the bridge and keep going straight to West until
you reach a save point then save. Watch out for those froggys.


If you want to save now, save. After saving there head South and keep going to
its path, just by now you will pass by under the bridge. On its way, there is a
treasure box take the item. Proceed moving to the path when there you will see a
church. But don't go in there yet look around and you will see a treasure chest,
open it and you will have a key. Now go to the church from the gate. When your
inside, take a look on your left and right there are two treasure chest. Now go
to the left stairs and take the Icon key from the statue, Then go to the right
stairs and get the other Icon key from the statue. Then go to the door behind
the cross, when you enter your in a big cavern. Now look at your right side and
that will be Southwest. Keep going on the right side path until you reach at the
end that you have to climb. Then put the icon key on the hole of that tombstone.
When there just get close on the middle of the hole and open your items
inventory use the first option. That option means "use" There will be two
different keys on your inventory. I'm not sure how to describe it, just use the
keys in your inventory and if successful the Icon you have got from the church
will go to that hole by itself. Now the other tombstone is located just South,
once there at the other tombstone put the Icon and a the giant statue in the
water. It will give you a hand "bridge" so you can cross to the other side. Now
cross until you reach the big door entrance and look around for the treasure
chests. When inside just keep going straight, but don't go straight at the light
not yet. Just go around behind it and you will see three treasure chest. Now you
have time to prepare yourself, equip the necessary items that suits your
character most, remember my tip. If you are fully prepared, just go straight to
the light. Anybody wanna play DOOM? Its boss fight time.

=====================
Demon HP/ 1200
---------------------
Purple Skulls HP/ 100
---------------------
Yellow Skulls HP/ 150
=====================

Objective: Defeat DEMON
Battle Strategy:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Sometimes your enemies take the first turn as an advantage, so your on the
run. The DEMON cast a magic spell "Hell Blast?" and the four skulls attack on
their own breath attacks. You should be at LEVEL 12 to overcome this (If it
happens to you in your game) You must have a character that has Heal All magic
preferable Chihaya's Everybody will be like beaten up if this incident happens.
So cast heal all before everything gets worst.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

First destroy the Purple Skulls and then the yellow skulls. Because this guys
will bug you if you don't finish them. Now this is a good time to cast your FP,
the Blue Moon magic. At your level, you probably have FP/11? Use the FP and
choose the "Fatal Blow" from the "Hero's" battle option. Blue Moon magic depends
on the characters you have you wont have it all there, only the specific
characters you have the magic you have works. When it is used you will damage it
badly, it depends on the magic you chose (try experimenting and load your game
if you found the best. Next follow up with the normal attacks until it is
defeated and always put your characters HP's above 35 high level. After you
defeated it go to the teleport, but once your from a different place your party
will ask you to take a rest and after that you will be at the surface.



DEMON DEFEATED ON THE REST FOR NOW


After talking to Gurei, Go to Chihaya's place and talk to her, after that
leave. Are you sick and tired of going back at the far place of the Demon
teleport far away? This time it will be easy. When you enter the cave, remember
the big green crystal save? On its right side there is a teleport above. Now you
have to climb up and when you teleport press circle. Then you will be at Level 2
dungeon. But you are in the forest. Look at the surrounding and you will see a
treasure chest. Now equip the item to the character that suits fine. Then head
South pathway, on your way there again it's a treasure chest. Now on your way to
the path, again you will see a treasure chest, equip it to whomever it suits
fine. I think at this moment your compass shows your heading northwards. Look
around and you will see a "rock tablet on a shape of a diamond" take it. Head
pass west path in a brief while then you will be facing southwards, just keep
walking until you reach the place. WOW! Here inside its not dark and it is full
in light. Just keep going South until you see a treasure chest, take the item
and equip it to a character and Southeast from the treasure chest there is a
save point (Save NOW!) Right now at this moment, this place goes on different
directions, there is a lot of place to go and find. But here are some tips you
need to have – Now the first "diamond shape rock tablet" you have now, there are
still "three more to find" Here are the places you should search – Land of the
light, Fungus Land, and the Living Forest. Once you have the four tablets. When
you are in the Living Forest you must find the temple where you must insert all
the four tablets you have. Once all are inserted, one of the ponds will be empty
and it will reveal a new path. Now go there, once there save at once before
entering. Besides the save crystal is near there. When you head for the entrance
just go on straight and at the end you will fight a Crystal Monster.


===============
CRYSTAL MONSTER

HP/ 3000
===============

Objective: Defeat the Crystal Monster
Boss Strategy:


My Level was 26 when I fought the Crystal Monster and my FP is about 22. Now
cast your FP at once on your battle. Remember it depends on your characters.
Then follow up with the normal attacks until its defeated and remember keep a
look out on your parties HPs keep it always high. This boss is a little nasty
than Demon Boss.



CRYSTAL MONSTER GONE CRYSTAL CLEAR


Now go to the teleport, but your party will tell you to take a rest so you will
be back at your place. Now visit all the places here and talk to the girls you
may see. Now go back to your place and "Gurei" is there and you will walk by him

I would like to thank GameFaqs for posting this FAQ. I appreciate all the
efforts of GameFaqs in maintaining their web site. It is very helpful and
useful to all of us gamers. Keep it going.

I also thank my persistent brother of mine "Mike" for some of the directions of
the (Takagawa) Mode. You can find his FAQ Dragon Knight 4 from GameFaqs, it is
very useful. Please check it out, it is like Final Fantasy Tactics type with
range of girls to recruit or date. If you ever contact him call him the "Iron
Mike" as we are fans of boxing, he likes "Rudolf Kaiser" from Front Mission,
don't know why? I think I'll play the game.

I also would like to thank  "Al Amaloo", for posting my Sonata FAQ, and also for
posting my contributed cheat code for Sonata. Another great place with FAQ's.
Thanks Al Amaloo.

Last but not least you, for playing this game and reading my guide.
