You're probably used to this by now. Ctrl + F and use the code on the right to
skip straight to that section. Include brackets. In order to skip to a
particular card, type in the code, followed by the card's code. For example,
Atoli's Hello! card would be [ATOHEL]. The card codes are as follows:

Card name         |    Code
---------------------------
Hello!            |     HEL
Food              |     FOO
How are you?      |     HOW
Motto             |     MOT
Flower Gift       |     FLO

03. Introduction                                                        [INTRO]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This FAQ is a transcript of all responses from all characters to each greeting
card. It also contains a transcript of the Promise card events for each
character. It's organized by character because I feel that it allows you to
get a better sense of the character by reading the emails one by one in order.
However, if you want to see all the responses to a particular card, you can
Ctrl + F the card's code, followed by the right bracket ], which will find all
of that card for you.

It's been about six years since my first FAQ and this is my first transcript-
style FAQ. I've done my best to reproduce the exact formatting, spelling,
punctuation, white space, and etc. of each email. I'm about 98% certain that
everything is as it appears in-game (including their typos) but please let me
know if you notice something different. I decided to do this because I was
unsatisfied with having to cross-reference multiple FAQs for all the greeting
card responses, as well as the lack of Promise transcripts. Very convenient,
if you're a sucker for expanded backstory, like me.

I've made a few best guesses for the content of the Azure Knights' responses
but I'm stumped for most of them. If you have any plausible suggestions, email
me. :)

04. Format of the guide                                                [FORMAT]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For each email with a chain, there are two possible replies. The character will
respond based on your reply and you are given another choice of two replies.
This new choice does not change based on your previous answers. What this means
is that there are not "branching" chains. You'll notice that the two character
responses are written such that both of Haseo's reply choices are plausible.

A reply may or may not cause the character to increase in affection towards
Haseo. This will be marked as "Affection +". Based on my testing, the amount of
increase varies between replies but each reply has a set amount of increase.
Very rarely, a reply will cause a decrease in affection. This is also a
variable fixed amount.

There are four emails in all email chains. The general form of each email or
email chain is as follows:

Affection +
Re: Subject                                                          [EXAMPLE1]

05. Optimization                                                         [OPTI]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are a limited number of greeting cards in the game. The absolute maximum
number for each card, by transferring between all three games, is given below.

Card name         |  Number
---------------------------
Hello!            |       6
Food              |       3
How are you?      |       3
Motto             |       3
Flower Gift       |       1
Hobbies           |       7
Challenge         |       5
Poetry Gift       |       1
Leader            |       6
Just Between Us   |       6
Promise           |       1

Thus, we run into the problem of who to send which cards. Of course, you could
simply save them all (like me), but in case you were wondering, here is a table
summarizing which cards will result in an email chain (marked by an x) when
sent to which characters. Hopefully, this will be helpful in your planning. Of
course, this is not to say that you'll find out the most interesting things
about each character with those cards, merely that you'll get more emails from
them. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide how to send your limited cards.

Hello! and Promise are omitted because they never result in chains.

Thank you for the greeting card! I feel like today is
going to be a great day! You've made me so happy!

You're always acting like a real rough and tough 
character, but actually very polite and
well-mannered, aren't you?

I hope I get to see the kind Haseo when I'm around.
Let's form a party and go adventuring some time
soon! :)

Sincerely,
Atoli

I'm so happy you're interested in me, Haseo! :)

My favorite food is...I guess it would be beef bowls. LOL

Sincerely,
Atoli

    Me Too

    I like beef bowls too. I often stop by somewhere to eat
    them on the way back from school.

        Re: Me Too
        >I like beef bowls too. I often stop by somewhere to eat
        >them on the way back from school.

        Oh, I go to beef bowl places like Yoshidaya occasionally,
        but most of the time I just make them at my home on my own.
        I like them to be sweeter than those made in restaurants,
        and this way I can also add in tofu and shirataki (potato
        starch noodles) as I like.

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

    What?!

    Beef bowls? LOL

    Pick something more girly and cute next time. LOL

        Re: What?!
        >Beef bowls? LOL
        >Pick something more girly and cute next time. LOL

        But they're so yummy! Besides, I make them myself,
        you know. :)

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

    You cook?

    So you cook for yourself? You've got it together more
    than I thought.

        Re: You cook?
        >So you cook for yourself? You've got it together more
        >than I thought.

        My parents both work, and they always come home late,
        so I've gotten used to making dinner all by myself. :(
        It's kind of depressing going to all that trouble to cook
        just for one person. I just wish there was someone I
        could make extra for.

        By the way, do you prefer Western-style breakfasts or
        Japanese-style breakfasts?

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

    What else do you like?

    Okay, enough about beef bowls. What else do you like?

        Affection +
        Re: What else do you like?
        >Okay, enough about beef bowls. What else do you like?

        I have lots of things I don't like. I'm terribly picky. I
        can't stand most vegetables (the onions in beef bowls
        are an exception) I get goose bumps just thinking
        about celery, or peppers, or peas.

        By the way Haseo, do you prefer Western-style
        breakfasts or Japanese-style breakfasts?

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

    Japanese

    I always have miso soup and white rice for breakfast.

        Affection +
        Re: Japanese
        >I always have miso soup and white rice for breakfast.

        Wow. It's amazing you always cook rice in the morning.
        Oh, wait, sorry, that would be your mother, wouldn't it?
        LOL

        My favorite ingredient to add to miso soup are shijimi
        clams! Whenever I make it myself, I always put in shijimi
        clams and tofu. I always make sure to use seawood
        broth too. I bet there aren't many high school girls who 
        can cook like I can. LOL

        If only "The World" had a cooking system. I'd be happy
        to level up my skill in that! LOL

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

    Western

    I always have toast for breakfast.

        Affection +
        Re: Western
        >I always have toast for breakfast.

        Me too. Or rather, I often just go without breakfast.
        I never seem to get very hungry in the morning.
        Does that ever happen to you?

        Sincerely,
        Atoli

I'm doing fine, thanks! :)

"To love. To love is not to look only at one another.
It is to look together, in the same direction."

I believe Antoine de Saint-Exupery said that. It's a
little different from a personal motto, but they're
words that remain in my heart even now.

        My white sparrow, Haku, is a quiet and refined
        young woman. She loves taking baths.

        Mon has cinnamon-colored wings and is known as a
        cinnamon type of sparrow. He's the only who isn't
        a hand-perching sparrow. He'll always be singing
        along merrily by himself, and sometimes he gets
        the other two to sing along.

        I really should let them run around my room and let
        them get some exercise, but it's a huge job to
        clean up after them when they're done.

        Incidentally!
        Their names are Bun, Haku and Mon.
        They're all named after their particular species.

        I met him on some website.

        I was bullied a lot when I was in middle school.
        I didn't like it, so I isolated myself at home and was online a lot...
        I've posted on some suicide-related websites, too.
        Sakaki was the one who genuinely listened
        to what I had to say.

        Then, all of a sudden,
        Sakaki and I were exchanging messages.
        He listened to a lot of my struggles,
        and he gave me great advice.
        Then we started sending each other
        messages each day...
        I remember the times when I was checking
        my inbox often to see if I had messages from him.

        I felt like I had a place in this world
        because Sakaki was there for me...
        And that's how I was able to go to school.

        That's why Sakaki was
        the only support I had back then.

        That's when I was invited to play "The World",
        and that's how I joined Moon Tree.

        I felt worried if I wasn't a part of something.
        I couldn't hold my own.
        I think I wasn't able to be confident
        unless I borrowed someone's ideas.

        Not right now I don't. There were lots of girls that
        I wouldn't have minded, but things always get ugly
        and blow up on me. it was partially my fault for
        not being clearer. I could never figure out where
        the line between a friend and a lover was, you know?

        I get lots of calls from friends who are girls. Usually
        they want me to come to even the numbers or talk
        about their problems with work or relationships.
        Sometimes they just they just want me to help them with
        moving, or do stuff for them.

        ...Geez, I feel so used. ROTFL

        The only time I had someone I could call a real 
        girlfriend was during high school. Never forget
        your real life.

        Basically she said, "You don't want me. You just want

        Maybe that's why I'm so easily misunderstood.

        Not only do I keep getting turned down in real life, but
        I've been on a streak of getting dumped online, too.

        I'm not picking them up. I just want to be friends with
        them. Though it takes a hell of a lot of effort to talk to
        girls online. I mean, you only talk through e-mails and
        chat.

        So things that can be easily avoided in the real world
        get tangled up when it's online. God, I hate it.

        She was a great girl with well-kept eyebrows.
        She was kind of uptight. Now that I look back,
        it's pretty obvious why she dumped me, since
        I was still just a kid back then.

        Now, I know I can be a little nicer to her, but of
        course it's too late now.

        techniques from Sniper Kuhn that'll woo any female
        from 8 to 80!

        The most important element for getting a girl is
        sincerity!

        Girls are naturally weak to being treated nicely
        by men! They can't help it! What's more, they have
        more pride than a group of lions!

        This means that you first have to act humble and
        make sure she's happy.
        Oh, but don't get the wrong idea.
        Acting humble isn't all about putting the girl up
        on a pedestal or anything.

        First you'll want to watch her closely.
        Learn what she sees,
        learn what she enjoys,
        and learn what makes her angry.
        Once you've got all that and have it firmly
        planted inside your head, it's time to make a move!

And just why do you want to know about my dining
preferences?

I guess I go out for most of my meals. There are lots
of great places to eat around where I work. They've
got everything, from Italian, French, Chinese, and
Japanese. Of course, they're all a bit expensive, but
what can you do.

It's not like I have anything else to spend my money
on. I cycle through my business suits, so I don't need
to replace them much. And there's no point in buying
cute casual clothes, because I rarely have a chance
to wear them. And honestly, I could really care less
about brand names and the latest fashion.

        On my days off, I'd make my way to the fish market, or
        just drive to the ocean. It's just not the same unless
        they're freshly caught. I'll have you know I grew up in
        a fishing village when I was little.

        It's a course that takes me along a local river to a
        nearby park. There's a line of cherry blossom trees
        along the way. I bet they get really pretty during
        springtime.

        I'd say I usually run about 2 miles at a pace so slow,
        even my grandmother would pass me.

        And of course, I never forget to take along my M2D,
        and "The World." LOL

        ends up taking the biggest hit. But I can't stop

        So you've seen those news reports too. I wonder why I
        always seem to relax whenever the media starts talking
        about things like that. I guess it's because it lets me
        know that I'm not only one.

        Still, I can't stop playing "The World," even if everyone

        in Canard is what's most meaningful for me. It taught me
        that responsibility isn't something thrust upon you, but
        something that you take on for yourself.

        I want to be serious about my activities in Canard for the
        people who need me and for me as well. 

    Turn back now

        Unfortunately, you can't get greeting cards back once
        they've been sent. I should've told you. Sorry.

        For future reference, cards that end with the word "gift"
        in their name are rare. You might want to give some
        thought on who to send the next one to.

        Anyway, I like flowers. They're really relaxing.

        We had a small herb garden at my family's house. My

        In the previous version of "The World," I heard there
        was a flower-viewing event you could partake in. I
        don't know the details, but it seems like there was a
        time when they made up a special area, complete
        with gag items like "sake" and "snacks." LOL

        This version of "The World" has a kind of tough,

        Don't worry about it. I'm just so glad you sent me a card
        since I love collecting cards! I spend most of my allowance
        on them. My mom keeps telling me to grow out of them
        though.

Today I got a hidden "Werewolf Tribe" card when I bought
a pack of "The World" gummies! It's a rare class that was
only introduced during the final days of the previous
version of "The World." It was the last card I needed to
complete my collection of all 31 job classses!

        I've only read about it online, but it looks like they
        were able to transform between a wolf and a beast
        race. As for their characteristics, I think it kind of
        resembled your Adept Rogue in its ability to switch
        its weapon.

        I'm so happy I got the Werewolf card right now. My
        character is a beast race, so I wish I could transform
        like that. LOL

        a plum, which I really don't like. :(

        But starting next month, the 4th, the cola flavored

        You're interested in premiums, too?! If you want, we can
        trade cards to collect more. It's a lot easier to fill the
        gaps in your collection when you can trade with someone
        else's gaps! It doesn't cost much to send them by mail.

        just like to buy complete sets on auction sites, but I

        All cards that end with the word "gift" in their name are
        rare! In fact, they're so rare that it's entirely possible
        you could go forever and not see one, depending on your
        style of play.

        There are rumors that there are some extremely rare
        cards that will change your entire life. As far as I know,
        no collectors have managed to find any cards like that
        though.

        On a different subject, I hope "Crimson VS" starts up
        again soon!

        Crimson VS is another online game managed by CC Corp.,
        just like "The World." You share the same account as the
        one you use for "The World," and you use cards found in
        "The World" to make a deck and play.

        But right now they're in the middle of a looong upgrade
        process, so no one can play. I wonder when they're going to
        open it back up. I just hope it DOES open back up someday.

        But if I don't score within the school's top 20 on my
        grades, Mom won't let me buy any cards. She won't
        allow me to play "The World" either. So, it's really

        Well... In real life I never had anything I was
        good at.

        I run too slow for sprints, and I wasn't especially
        good at school either. I did okay with drawing,
        but only okay...

        So, I've always used to think that I was worthless.

        But ever since my friends taught me about card
        games, I found they were something that I could
        do better than anyone else, and I was really
        happy.

        After that, I just kept getting more and more
        into them, and now... Well, you know :)

    A fool's victory

    Man, you really are a fool for cards.
    And since they say you can't beat a fool,

        When you put it like that, I can't really say
        that you're wrong.

        I was never too good at sports or schoolwork, and
        I guess card games are the only
        thing I could ever do better than anyone else.

        Then I just kept getting more and more

        try reading the book.

        It's interesting how there were real "heroes"
        back then, isn't it. That might be why I want
        to be a "hero" when playing a game!

        >Doesn't sound like there's much substance to it.

        You've still got a long ways to go if you haven't
        grasped what it is that makes these words great,
        kid. Here's how I interpret them---

        Just as they say, one should not be afraid of
        failure when beginning something new, so just
        go at it with everything you've got.

        But, just think about how difficult that really
        is. The more people directly face their problems,
        the more they flinch and shirk away. You can't
        overcome that without some amazing mental
        strength.

        This phrase means to do just that.
        Well? Pretty deep, right?

        We both know you've accepted it in your heart!

        "Do not hesitate.
        Go forth and you will understand."
        Do you get the significance of this phrase, kid?

        It means don't be afraid to fail when starting
        something, just go out there and give it all
        you've got!

        Well? Isn't that a good saying?

        person you once were.

        But remember kid, don't let it all go to your
        head. Don't forget that the time when you're most
        vulnerable is the same time that you think
        nothing bad can happen.

    Confused

    But even then it's human nature to get lost
    sometimes, right?

    For that matter, I'd have a much harder time

    things through too much.

        Being lost is also another way of moving forward.
        As long as they don't mistake when they should
        let themselves be lost, people can move forward
        all the time.

        It's okay to be lost. It's okay to worry.
        But don't mistake when you should let yourself
        be lost.

        Damn, now I've gone and given you another lecture.

        Mixed martial arts are good too, but you
        need spectators for the "pro" part.
        You can't forget to entertain them when you're a
        pro.

        Real pro wrestling is an art created by the
        wrestlers and the spectators together!

        I'm not interested in bullying those weaker then
        me, but when I'd hear about a "strong" player
        at the Arena or someplace, I'd search them out
        and challenge them.

        I'd become famous for a PKer by the time I met
        Sakaki. And, I lost...
        Actually, it wasn't just losing. He made me feel
        as if I'd failed as a human entirely.

        The 2nd birth will not take place if you don't set free

        Wow, thanks.
        Bouquets...I got plenty of them while I was in the hospital,
        but you're special...
        Since it's you, you can get me a potted plant.

        If I can move to a bigger room,
        I'd like to make the entire room a nursery.
        It will be my space to relax.

        get rid of my memories with Ovan.
        He's special, in a different kind than you.

        That's true...
        He continuously fought for those who needed to be saved.
        He just wasn't able to believe in others.
        He relied heavily on being alone,
        and perhaps he had too much power...

    Ovan has nothing to do with it. I'm me.

        I relied heavily on
        his leadership and his existence.

        You should make sure who you're sending it to next time.

        I received a message from you...

        ...I'm divorced.
        I married while I was a teenager, and I had a child.
        But my negligence caused my child to die in an accident...
        Because of that, my marriage didn't work out well
        and that's why we got divorced.

        That's how I comfort myself, at least.
        I constantly feel a void,
        as if my body was split in two.

The event on the Isle of Kings, Hy Brasail...
Isn't that...the wedding...?

I never thought in my wildest dreams
that I would be chosen as your partner...

I only wonder if I am capable
of loving a man once more...

But...as a woman...
I am touched by your feelings.

If you have chosen me...
I would like to humbly accept.

I will be waiting for you
in front of the Chaos Gate in Mac Anu.

foreign fantasy novels a lot,

It may seem like picture books are childish,

I like those popup books,
you know the ones where something pops out when
you open it up? =)

07. Trivia                                                             [TRIVIA]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just some observations I've made about the content of the greeting card emails.
Hope you find it interesting.

* Haseo is compared to a cactus twice, by Bo and Shino.

* Haseo recycles a lot of dialogue in his emails.

    * Haseo repeats the line "I'm 17 and a sophomore in high school. What about
      you?" 10 times.

    * In Redemption, the line changes to "I'm 17 and in high school, but how
      old are you?" and is said 5 times.

    * Haseo repeats the line "I live in Tokyo. What about you?" 11 times.

    * Haseo repeats the line "You don't like flowers?" to Pi, Saku, and
      Bordeaux.

* Alkaid (x2), Matsu, Yata (x2), Bordeaux, and Kaede (x2) are the only
  characters who can get affection decreases from cards.

* "Leader" is the only greeting card where it is possible to send the card to
  all characters who will respond with email chains.

* The most talkative characters, by total text size, are Kuhn, Gaspard, Atoli,
  and Shino.

* The least talkative characters, besides the Azure Knights, are Piros and
  Zelkova.

* Endrance is the only male character who gets a wedding ending and Natsume
  is the only female character who does not get a wedding ending.

* Other characters interrupt Endrance's and Yata's promise endings. Bikman the
  NPC appears in the Azure Knights' endings.

* There's a good bit of recycled dialogue and scripting in the promise endings.

    * Haseo says "I... I need you" to Silabus, Matsu, and Yata.

    * Haseo says "...What I sent you... ...wasn't a greeting card. It was my
      heart" to both Pi and Bordeaux.

    * Haseo says "I'll make you happy" to Alkaid, Bordeaux, and Kaede.

    * Haseo does the same jerky, twisting motion in the Azure Knights' and
      Natsume's endings.

* Apparently, a lot of characters like to practice historical revisionism,
  considering the number of times Haseo's words or subject line get changed
  when it's being quoted in the response. :)

* Shino is the most affectionate character, by number of affection increases,
  followed by Kuhn. Piros is the least affectionate. However, Piros has the
  highest ratio of affection increases to emails (all replies generate
  affection for him), while Saku has the lowest ratio.

* Kaede is the only character who ends a chain prematurely if you select a
  certain reply.

* Kaede's 3rd "Food" email is the same regardless of your reply.

* Saku and Alkaid reference Sleeping Beauty in their promise endings.

* Natsume is the only character besides the Azure Knights not to initiate an
  email chain with the "Flower Gift" card.

* Haseo pretends he sent cards to the wrong people to Antares, Bordeaux, and
  possibly Kaede.

* There are only 9 instances where neither reply will give you a positive
  affection response (Pi twice, Saku six times, and Bordeaux once).

* Zelkova's "Vak" refers to Baku, a supernatural chimera-like creature from
  Japanese mythology which eats dreams. The Pokemon Drowzee is also based on
  this creature.

* In case you were curious, here's a table listing each character's vitals.
