    Hi, and welcome to my Konjiki no Gash Bell FAQ. You're free to use this guide
    for personal use, and if you feel like reproducing it elsewhere, ask for
    permission first (it's common courtesy) or else I'll use the 10th spell in my
    book to barbeque you! Just kidding.

    |1. Introduction |
     ----------------
    
    This game is based on Konjiki no Gash Bell, an anime (and manga) series about
    a boy named Kiyomaro that meets Gash Bell, a demon with thunder powers, and
    decides to help him defeat the other demons to become a 'kind ruler'.
    About the game, it's some kind of Action RPG, in which you go beating the
    enemies to level up, but without turn-based battles.
    
    Let's move on!
    
     ----------
    |2. Basics |
     ----------
    
    A :        Casts selected spell (hold for improved effect)
    B :        Attack
    Hold B:    Sets your demon partner to attack the enemy continuously (hold B
               again for him to return to your side)
    L :        Hold to select SA partner (up and down) or spell (left or right)
    R :        Run
    L+R:       SA Attack (uses up 1 SA orb)
    Start:     Brings up menu
    Select:    Changes selected character
    
    -Pressing the B button many times will unleash a basic combo (which will
     be evolving throughout the game), that can be cancelled anytime into a
     spell or SA Attack.
    -The game is pretty much straight-forward (complete all the stages and
     beat the enemies in the way), so there'd be no real reason to make a
     detailed walkthrough for it (besides, I don't even know japanese, to
     start with).
    -Here's a list of all the status abnormalities:
     --Poison: you gradually lose HP
     --Doom: you can move, but you can't change character, can't attack and
             can't cast any spell
     --Stun: you can't move for a short time
     --Slow: you slow down
     --Confusion: you can't control the direction you're going to attack or
                  cast a spell to

     --------------
    |4. SA Attacks |
     --------------
    
    These attacks are somewhat tricky. You'll call your SA partner, and he'll
    perform his lv. 1 attack... and then you can choose another SA partner
    to perform another attack (pushing A or B button until you get past the
    gauge's mark) which level will be the times you had to push the button to
    activate it (if you're required to push the button 3 times, it'll perform
    a lv. 3 spell).
    Sometimes, when finishing the SA Attack, both you and your SA partner
    will perform a simultaneous spell.
    The spells to choose from will depend on the character used and the initial SA
    partner selected (as each combination has a different 'route' of choices),
    though the spells may be listed like this:

    |5. Bookmarks |
     -------------
    
    As you progress through the story, you'll get different bookmarks to enhance
    your characters.
    Red bookmarks are to be used while in battle, and blue, green and yellow
    bookmarks must be equipped on the character (purple bookmarks can't be used).
    When you meet Kokomero (the mushroom-haired guy), you can ask him to recognize
    your unknown bookmarks for you, and you'll be able to combine two bookmarks to
    get a new one (note that not all combinations will work out; you might want to
    use the 'recipes' below to make sure you get the desired bookmark).
    *Note: when you get 100% completion on the bookmarks, Kokomero will tell
    you about something called "Igirisu", and you'll be supposed to look for it...
    though I'd appreciate a somewhat faithful translation.

    Hidden bookmarks
    -----------------
    
    I guess these bookmarks can only be gotten by cheating. They show up
    in the bookmark list, and work properly, but they don't add up on the
    completion percentage (and there is the chance that they may screw
    up your game, though I'd doubt that).

    Got by: use the cheat code below with XX=71

    |6. Cheat codes |
     ---------------
    
    Here are the cheats I found for the VBA. Use them with caution,
    and all that stuff.
    
    Effect: Get any bookmark after combining
    Code: 3200728E:00XX
    Desc: Select a couple of bookmarks to form a valid combination, and
          before combining them, replace XX with the number of the bookmark
          you want to get minus one (in hexadecimal)
    *Note: to get the purple bookmarks, add two to the result
    *Note 2: this is a GameShark code
    
    Effect: Defeat instantly the last boss (1st phase)
    Code: 020002CE:0001
    Desc: It'll only require a hit to defeat the last boss (don't defeat
          him with the cheat on)
    
    Effect: Defeat instantly the last boss (2nd phase)
    Code: 020001D2:0001
    Desc: It'll only require a hit to defeat the last boss (don't defeat
          him with the cheat on)
    
    
    Well, that should be it for now.
