  • There are two types of Rhythm Actions: Song and Dance. These are mandatory during the performances.
    • The difficulty level you select has no effect on your ranking during performances, so pick the level that’s most comfortable for you.

    • While performance Rhythm Actions are mandatory during performances, you can skip the practices by pushing the + button then selecting End. There is no consequence for skipping the practices.
  • This route is locked at the start of the game, you need to have finished all of the best ends for all six LIs to play this one!
  • As for the trophies, if you are shooting for 100% on that front you will need to make every choice, read every option, and master all the rhythm games on JACK JEANNE difficulty. God speed… but if you just want the endings, these guides will suffice. šŸ˜Š

Kisa Specific Notes

  • So this is the big one, you’ve reached the final stretch! Kisa’s route unlocks after you complete the Best Ends for each of the six love interests.
  • Kisa’s route is split into 6 sections (Newcomer Performance, Summer Performance, Summer Break, Fall Performance, Winter Performance, and the Univeil Performance. With a total of three endings (Good, Best, and Normal).
    • This is the route where you can tackle some side character specific endings an events which I have included in this guide.
      • Ao Akane, Ataru Kasai, Kiito Minokawa, Mare Oshinari, Shuri Chuza, Rokuro Enishi, Ion, and Mona all have special scenes and CGs.
      • There is also a “bad” end with Chui Tanakagami. For this end to even be an option you must have gotten SS in every rhythm action event during all the main performances. Good luck friends!
  • To achieve the best end there is no stats requirement, so I recommend leveling out all your stats as best you can (I managed to get everything between lvl 16/17). The good and best endings My Future and Transparent Quartz will start automatically.
    • Note, unless you get SS in every single Rhythm Action event you will get silver in the individual award in the final performance. It’s okay, you can still get the best end without issue.
