Introduction                     [Raiho0010]
============================================
Hello Woo-Jin Song again, after not doing any of FAQ since Enchant Arm two 
years ago, I now have the pleasure to present to you a FAQ for Devil 
Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou tai Abaddon Ou or Devil Summoner 2: Raidou 
Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon (for you NTSC-U/C gamers.) I hope you all enjoy 
this game as much as I did!

This is a FAQ in progress so it is still incomplete, don't expect any 
major updates right away because I am busy with other stuff, I'll try to 
get this completed as soon as possible for all you gamers, but please be 
patient because as they say "Patience is a virtue."

As usual if you find I have any errors, things I need to be clearer on, 
want to send comments, or leave any feedback on whether the was helpful I 
would greatly appreciate it if you sent me an e-mail, however please make 
sure the game title is in the subject header and do not send me any junk, 
hate or spam, if I get any it will be deleted immediately without even 
looking at it.

Also normally I don't do this, but I would like to start contributing a 
lot more to GameFaqs, so you can e-mail with a request to write one for a 
specific game, I will do so provided that it is a game which will interest 
me, it is on one the systems I own, which is a PS2, PS3, Gamecube, or Wii 
(so don't ask me about anything that's on the 360,) and there aren't a 
bunch of other FAQs already written, if I can get a copy of the game then 
I will gladly do it, anyways enough with my long-winded introduction on to 
the FAQ.

============================================
After popping in your disc and watching the opening movie press O or X 
depending on which version and select New Game, you will then be prompted 
to load a save file from a previous game and if you do so you will receive 
the following bonuses:
Commendation
Summoner Badge
Explorer Badge
When you reach the level required certain demons from the first game will 
show up in battle and join you without any negotiation.

Once done the game will start, I will be using the NTSC-U/C translations 
of just about everything just to make it easier for people, so I won't 
directly translate anything.

============================================
PROLOGUE
============================================

============================================
Kuzunoha Training Hall
============================================
Items: Commendation, Summoner Badge, Explorer Badge
Enemies: Ichimokuren, Jack Frost, Koropokkuru, Oumitsunu, Pixie
Boss: Jorougumo
============================================
After some dialogue you will be given the chance to name Raidou, some more 
dialogue and you get to meet a familiar face when presented with a choice 
pick whichever choice you want, you will then be taken to the Ritual of 
Battle so if you are new to the game then this is your chance to learn 
about the battle system, previous players will just get a refresher.

After the first two battles you'll see a scene and you gain your first 
Demon Ally, after two more battles move on, you'll get some more scenes 
and automatically be able to summon two demons at once.

-Alignment Choice-
You're at that age where you would prefer females anyways right?
"Of course I am."
"No, not really."

After some more scenes you'll be in the final battle of the Ritual.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Jorougumo
================================
Frail: Zio     |Attacks:
Weak:          |Mazan
Strong:        |Strike
Null:          |
Drain:         |
================================
Exp: 26
Loyalty: None
Yen: 250
Items: Jin Dan
================================
Party: 
Raidou  Lvl 4
Tam Lin Lvl 3
Alraune Lvl 3
================================
Strategy: Set Tam Lin's Zio and Alarune's Dia skills to Auto Repeat, when 
Jorougumo looks like she's going to use Mazan (you'll know it by the green 
whirlwind forming around her) press L2 call you allies away from her. When 
she gets to around half her HP you'll learn about how demons can dodge, 
when she gets stunned by Zio attack her with a special sword attack (press 
triangle) or use Fire Slash. This is a very easy battle so you shouldn't 
have to worry about dying.
================================

After the battle watch some more scenes and you will find yourself at the 
Nameless Shrine in Shinoda, watch more scenes, then when prompted save 
your game.

Prologue Complete.

============================================
CHAPTER 1: AN ENIGMATIC WOMAN        [CHAP1]
============================================

============================================
Narumi Detective Agency
============================================
Items: None
Valuables: Dahn's Photo
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Watch the actual opening movie and then some scenes will follow you are 
given a choice.

-Alignment Choice-
"No, we better not."
"You should take it."

Watch some more scenes, after you can view Gouto's Notebook at anytime in 
the menu by selecting the Reference Heading, leave the Detective Agency.

============================================
Tsukudo-Cho
============================================
Items: Anti-Mind x2, Jin Dan, Medicine, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: Four Wind Tiles
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
The antique shop Konnou-Ya which also houses the Gouma Den is in the 
Karukogawa Shopping District two screens west.

First before we start with this case we are going to do some exploring, 
from the entrance of the Detective Agency go down and examine the 
sparkling object to receive and Ox Bezoar, go up the alleyway north then 
head west, examine the sparkle in the north for a medicine, from here head 
south and when you exit the alley go north.

On this screen head south again and you will see a maid standing next to 
the telephone pole, speak with her and when she asks where the Narumi 
Detective Agency is tell her, doing this opens up a Case File. Go back to 
the Narumi Detective Agency and accept it, you should do this Case File 
right away, why? You'll find out in a little bit.

============================================
Case File 1-7: Lab Rats
============================================
To actually be able to do this one you need to enter Dark Tsukudo-Cho, 
when you accept the Case File Gouto will tell you how to get into Dark 
Tsukudo-Cho, so take the street car to the Nameless Shrine in Shinoda.

============================================
Dark Tsukudo-Cho
============================================
Valuables: Smoked Salmon, Tesseract Box
============================================
When you first enter Gouto will unlock another command for Raidou to use, 
this is an absolutely vital command as it allows you to negotiate with 
demons to them to join you or give you an item.

Head north to the Dragon Cave and you'll see a scene, when presented with 
a choice pick whatever, at the second choice you can pick whatever again. 
After a couple more scenes you'll see another familiar face, when asked to 
help agree and he will hand over the Valuable: Tesseract Box, you will 
also receive the Valuable: Smoked Salmon.

End of Case File
============================================

Now go back to where the Maid was and keep going south, when you get toe 
Ushigome-gaeri Bridge head west first and examine the sparkle for a Jin 
Dan. Next go back to the entrance to the bridge and head east, when the 
point of view changes hug the wall on the right to find a hidden sparkle 
and receive Valuable: Four Wind Tiles, continue following the road and go 
up into the dead end and find an Anti-Mind x2. These are all the items we 
can find Tsukudo-Cho.

Now let's continue with the investigation, head back to the entrance of 
the Detective Agency and speak with the man standing next to the stairs on 
the right side, show him Dahn's Photo and he'll mention that Satake would 
be able to help you better. Head north again and this time take the stairs 
and you'll end up on the Kamishiro-zaka, speak with the man in the green 
kimono in front of Tawara-Ya on the left side of the street, he'll mention 
he saw a foreigner going towards the Tamonten Shrine, that's our next stop 
so head there now, the entrance is on the next screen.

When you enter you'll see the foreigner the owner of Tawara-Ya mentioned, 
show him Dahn's Photo and he'll say he saw him in Fukugawa-Cho, let's head 
there now. Leave Tsukudo-Cho from any exit and take the street car to 
Fukugawa-Cho.

============================================
Fukagawa-Cho
============================================
Items: Anti-Mute, Fubuki Sake, Old Underwear, Ox Bezoar, Scoring Sticks, 
Wood Ornament
Valuables: None
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Before entering Fukagawa-Cho go east and when you get to the second person 
keep going east and follow the path to pick up an Ox Bezoar, now go and 
enter Fukugawa-Cho. Where we want to go is right in front of us but we're 
going to disregard that for now and collect some items.

Go east from the Daikoku-Yu Storefront and cross the Daikoku Bridge, when 
you reach the Fukagawa 6th Ward head south, when you see a little girl go 
east past her and get the Old Underwear in the corner, head south the go 
east, go north into the empty lot and pick up the Fubuki Sake go back and 
continue heading east ignoring the door to the docks and go the only way 
you can go, north, pick up the Anti-Mute on the right side as you move 
north and open the door, you'll be back in the Fukagawa 6th Ward, head 
south but pick up the Wood Ornament against the western wall. Keep heading 
south when the POV changes make sure to check the western corner to pick 
up Valuable: Scoring Sticks hidden behind one of the banners, with that 
all the items are collected.

The exit next to the Show Room in the 6th Ward leads to the Red Light 
District, but we can't go there right now so just keep it in mind for 
later, also keep in mind the location of the Show Room in the 6th Ward 
because we will be back here for a Case File later on.

Make sure you've done the Case File received from the maid, now let's head 
back to the Daikoku-Yu Storefront where you came in, enter. Inside talk to 
the two men in front if you want then talk to Satake who is on the far 
right side, show him Dahn's Photo and he'll say he won't help you unless 
you let him taste some Smoked Salmon, if you did the Case File from the 
maid the you should already have it, agree to give it to him and Satake 
will tell you about a guy named Tatsumi in Mannen-Cho, that's our next 
destination so let's get going. Also Gouto has updated his notebook so 
take a look at it you want.

============================================
Mannen-Cho
============================================
Items: Frost Steel, Jin Dan, Muscle Drink
Valuables: Number Tiles
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Mannen-Cho is to the north of Fukagawa-Cho, just follow the path to the 
entrance, you'll be stopped briefly but granted passage after, enter 
Mannen-Cho.

Once inside head north and go into the house on your right for a Jin Dan 
and leave. Head west following the alley all the way to the end, at the 
Abandoned Temple check the closest eastern lamp for Valuable: Number Tiles, 
back track and go east, at the next intersection go east again and follow 
the path as it goes south then east and head north staying close to the 
western wall, open the door to get a Muscle Drink, leave and continue 
north for a scene. Afterwards head east hugging the southern wall and open 
the door, inside you'll find a Frost Steel also make note of the Chicken 
hopping around outside for later. Now we can talk to Kogure Osamu, show 
him the photo and remember the phrase he gives you.

Go back to the entrance of town, the Gambling Parlor is the house where 
the woman was standing outside, enter it and pick the second choice, on 
the other side enter the Gambling Parlor.

Inside talk to the man in the blue suit and pick the first choice, then 
show him the photo, he'll refuse to help unless you "entertain" him which 
amounts to a simple coin flip, you lose no matter what option you choose 
so just pick whatever you want, he'll ask you if you want to try again 
just refuse. We now need to get a Pagan Demon (unless you already have one 
that is.) Leave Mannen-Cho, take the street car back to the Nameless 
Shrine in Shinoda and select the Ritual of Entry after examining the 
shrine.

============================================
Dark Tsukudo-Cho
============================================
Items: Anti-Poison x2, Jin Dan, Life Stone x3, Medicine x2, Onyx, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: None
Enemies: Koropokkur, Obariyon, Onmoraki, Pixie, Poltergeist, Preta, Slime
Boss: Inugami
============================================
When you enter from the bridge head west and examine the glowing blue 
crystal to get a Life Stone x3, now head to the eastern alley where you 
found the Anti-Mind x2 in Tsukudo-Cho, here you will find what looks like 
a mini yellow whirlwind, this is a Wind Current and can be used provided 
you have a Wind Order Demon like say Poltergeist, so summon Poltergeist 
and have him use his Investigative skill Kamikaze to be blown over to the 
Karukogawa Shopping District and open up the two crystal there for and 
Onyx and Ox Bezoar, keep heading east ignoring the portal and take the 
Wind Current back to the dead end alley.

Go north past the Dragon Cave and enter the alley on your left for a 
Medicine x2, now go east and follow the path at the next screen keep 
heading east, talk to the Pyro Jack on the if you want and then continue 
on saving your game at the Dragon Cave, proceed north up the steps.

On this screen you will see two item crystals in front of the entrance to 
the Tamonten Shrine containing and Anti Poison x2 and a Jin Dan, now do 
you see that weird looking fairy inside what appears to be a teardrop? 
That is Nakisawame, she'll charge you a fee to heal you, and will 
replenish your MAG for 3 yen per MAG, use her if you want and then 
continue south.

Before you talk to the Inugami make sure to have Onmoraki set as one of 
your default Demons and make sure to have a Skill Demon like Pixie on hand 
because you'll need use her Investigative skill later on, when that's done 
talk with the Inugami to initiate a battle.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Inugami
================================
Weakness:       |Attacks:
Frail: Fire     |Strike
Strong: Mind    |Combo
Null: Death     |Dia
                |Pulinpa
================================
Exp:
Loyalty: 
Yen: 500
Items: 
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 9
Pixie Lvl 8
Onmoraki Lvl 6
================================
Strategy: This is another straight forward battle; the only skill you need 
to watch out for is Pulinpa, because it will inflict Panic on Raidou or 
his demons.

Set Onmoraki's Agi and Pixie's Dia skill to default repeat. If you have 
Fire Bullet use it on Raidou, if Raidou or his demon's get too low on HP 
(which shouldn't happen) use an item. Fire is your friend in this battle 
so between Onmoraki and Raidou attacking with his gun powered up with Fire 
Bullet you should be able to stun Inugami easily enough to take him out 
with Raidou's sword.
================================

After the battle some scenes will play and Inugami will ask you if he can 
join you, say yes. Congratulations, you now have a Pagan Order Demon with 
Mind Read. Some more scenes and you get to meet someone interesting, with 
Inugami in tow let's head back to Mannen-Cho, exit the Dark Tsukudo-Cho 
using the portal to north and this will bring you to Tsukudo-Cho, exit and 
take the street car back to Fukugawa-Cho/Mannen-Cho.

============================================
Mannen-Cho Revisited
============================================
Items: Manasaku Sake, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: Tatsumi's Hair
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Go back into the Gambling Parlor and use Inugami's Mind Read on Tatsumi, 
afterwards speak with Tatsumi again and a second choice has become 
available, pick it and Tatsumi will run off. Follow him down the path and 
enter the house he ran into, after which you'll immediately be chased out.

Back outside Gouto suggests that Raidou transforms into Tatsumi to get by, 
he'll run off when he returns pick whatever choice you want and you'll 
receive Valuable: Tatsumi's Hair. This is why you need Pixie, summon her 
hit L1 and select Tatsumi's name to transform into him, you need to remain 
in that form as you make your way through the houses. When you get out to 
where you met Kogure head south, the road that was block off before by the 
Police is now open, head east and at the first open door go north into 
another house to pick up the Manasaku Sake, next doorway head south 
through the house to the outside and pick up the Ox Bezoar, go back out 
and continue east past the doorway.

On the next screen you'll find Tatsumi on the docks after the amusing 
scene you have to chase Tatsumi again, so head back the way you came and 
talk to the old woman in the green kimono for a scene, follow Tatsumi when 
you are in control again. When you enter the door you'll get some scenes 
pick whatever choice you want and then you have to chase him for the last 
time, whew he sure likes running. Head north for a scene and follow the 
road right next to you, follow him up the path and climb the ladder at the 
end, head south along the rooftops until you get another scene, finally we 
cornered him, when presented with a choice pick the first one, after some 
more scenes you end up in an illusion called Fukorutsubo.

============================================
Fukurutsubo
============================================
Items: Anti Mind, Life Stone
Valuables: None
Enemies: Obayrion, Onmoraki, Pixie, Poltergeist, Preta, Slime
Boss: Soldier Bug Jiromaru
============================================
This place is a small maze, depending on which way you enter the next 
screen, corridors will be blocked off or open. I'll give you directions to 
get out of here as quickly as possible while collecting all the items.

Use the Dragon Cave right in front of you, from here head northwest, then 
head east, on the next screen head north to find Nakisawame, use if you 
want then head south, go east to get a Life Stone, from here head west and 
go south towards the beginning again.

Go northwest, east, north, north, west, west to get an Anti-Mind, from 
here head east then north and use the Dragon Cave. Before moving on try to 
get Raidou to Level 12 and fuse Ukobach (Agathion + Obariyon) in the Gouma 
Den, he has Maragi which has a longer stun period, than Agi.

Head north and watch the scenes and you'll be in a boss battle.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Soldier Bug Jiromaru (Yellow)
================================
Weakness:       |Attacks:
Frail: Fire     |Hopper Kick
Strong: Phys    |Scratch
                |Tackle
================================
Exp: 70
Loyalty: None
Yen: 400
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 14
Pixie Lvl 9
Ukobach Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: All of Jiromaru's attacks have a chance of stunning Raidou or his 
demons, however they are easy to dodge so you don't need to worry about 
that too much. Before you start the battle make sure Ukobach has Maragi on 
Auto Repeat and Pixie has Dia on Auto Repeat.

As soon as the battle starts use War Cry (if it was inherited when you 
fused Ukobach in Gouma-Den) this will help do more damage to Jiromaru and 
then use Fire Slash.

On each subsequent turn just let Ukobach use Maragi on him because it will 
do more damage than Fire Slash (level 14 is when Fire Slash is learned by 
the way) and actually has a higher chance to stun Jiromaru. Pixie will 
heal Raidou or his demons when they get too low on health. At around 25% 
health Jiromaru will run away and the battle will end.
================================

After some more scenes you'll be back in Mannen-Cho, shortly afterwards 
you'll find yourself in a battle against a Fiend.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Binbou-Gami
================================
Weakness:    |Attacks:
Frail:  ???  |Rush
Strong: ???  |Mabufu
Null:   ???  |Money Rain
Drain:  ???  |Pulinpa
================================
Exp: None
Loyalty: None
Yen: None
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 14
Pixie Lvl 9
Ukobach Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: You can't hit him with anything at all so just dodge his attacks 
or let him kill you off, either way the battle will end after a little 
while.
================================

Watch some more scenes and you'll find yourself automatically back at the 
Narumi Detective Agency.

============================================
Narumi Detective Agency
============================================
Items: None
Valuables: None

============================================
Watch the scenes, when presented with a choice pick the first option, when 
another choice is presented pick the first option again.

You'll have an Investigational Meeting choices to pick are as follows: 3rd 
choice, 1st choice, once it's done the destination has been decided so 
let's head there now. Exit Tsukudo-Cho and take the street car to 
Kasumidai, go to the southern dot and enter. 

============================================
Narita Residence
============================================
Items: None
Valuables: None
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
When you enter take a few steps forward and the butler will ask you if you

when finished leave and head back to the Narumi Detective Agency.

============================================

Valuables: Croquette
Enemies: None

============================================
When you approach the entrance to the Agency a scene will play and you'll

you want. When in control again enter the Agency and watch the scenes, we 
now have to head to Shin Sekai the soda joint, leave and take the street 
car to Ginza-Cho, once there speak with the officer then head north to the 
other dot and enter.

============================================

When you enter here you may talk to everyone there if you like, but 
definitely be sure to talk to the owner because he has Case Files to open 
up for you. Throughout the game visit him occasionally to receive more 
Case Files.

To advance the story speak with Tae, when you ask her about being spirited 
away you'll be presented with a choice, pick the second option, afterwards 
leave. You'll get another scene with the foreigner, we now need to head to 
the Dark Realm but before we do let's go check out those Case Files.

============================================
Case Files
============================================
The following Case Files are now available:
Case File 1-1: Stocking Up (1)
Case File 1-3: Kagami Hell
Case File 1-4: Low On Stock (1)
Case File 1-6: Demons For Science (1)
Case File 1-8: Ghost Driver

============================================
Case File 1-8: Ghost Driver
============================================
Head into Dark Tsukudo-Cho and head back to where the northern exit portal 
was, when you approach you're in a battle with a familiar demon.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Oboroguruma
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Zan       |Rush
Null: Elec/Death |Mazio
================================
Exp: 100
Loyalty: 9
Yen: 800
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 15
Moh Shuvuu Lvl 14
Nezha Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: You have three minutes to defeat Rumored Oboroguruma which is 
more than enough time, make sure to have one Demon with Force skills as 
Rumored Oboroguruma is Frail to it, and the other Demon should have a 
decent physical skill.

When the battle starts have your Demon with the Force skill use it and 
hope it stuns Oboroguruma, if not hopefully you have it set to Auto Repeat 
and they'll just try again, when it does finally stun him have the other 
Demon use their Physical skill while Raidou attacks with his sword. Just 
keep on using Force skills and attacking with Raidou and his other demon 
and he'll go down fairly quickly.
================================

After you defeat Rumored Oboroguruma go ahead and take that northern 
portal again.

End of Case File
============================================

Now with all the Case Files complete at the moment, it's time to continue 
our investigation, head to the Nameless Shrine again and enter Dark 
Mannen-Cho.

============================================
Dark Mannen-Cho
============================================
Items: Anti Mind, Asuka Mirror, Jin Dan, Medicine, Turquoise
Valuables: Insect Cage
Enemies:  Agathion, Angel, Enku, Koropokkur, Nezha, Obariyon, Onmoraki, 
Poltergeist, Sandman, Slime
Boss: Binbou-Gami, Enku Form, Nezha, Preta Form
============================================
If you happen to encounter an Enku, try to negotiate with him because 
doing so opens up a Case File at the Narumi Detective Agency, which will 
do later.

You'll start at the docks, use the Dragon Cave and then continue west, 
after some scenes you will be in a "Boss Battle."

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Preta Form x3
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Elec/Fire |Bufu
Weak: Force      |Makajam

Yen: 105
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 15
Moh Shuvuu Lvl 14
Nezha Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: You can't really call this a boss battle, they don't have any 
special attacks and aren't particularly strong, just use Elec and Fire 
Skills to take these jokers down.
================================

After some more scenes continue west ignoring the doors until you get to 
the one with a man standing inside, talk to him if you want otherwise just 
continue past him into the next room to find Jin Dan, leave. Keep going 
west then head north for a scene, you'll be in another battle after.

================================
Preta Form x3
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Elec/Fire |Bufu
Weak: Force      |Makajam

================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 15
Angel  Lvl 8
Nezha  Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: Same as the last battle, they are a little bit tougher though.
================================

After the battle head east and use any Wind Order Demon's Investigative 
skill and use the Wind Current, when you arrive in the next area talk with 
the man if you want otherwise exit the house and go east, use the Dragon 
Cave you pass by if want then continue on.

When you are back outside go across and enter the house to find a Medicine 
exit then head west and you will be in yet another battle.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Enku Form x2
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Ice/Force |Strike
Null: Death      |Agi
Drain: Fire      |
================================
Preta Form x2
================================

Yen: 225
Items: Ox Bezoar
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 15
Angel Lvl 9
Nezha Lvl 15
Tam Lin Lvl 10
================================
Strategy: When the battle first starts you will face an Enku Form and two 
Preta Form, exploit their weaknesses to finish them off quickly. After 
they are defeated another Enku Form shows up a long with a Nezha, at this 
point switch out one of your demons for a demon with an Ice Skill, Elec 
Skill, or if you have one, a Death Skill.

Attack the Nezha first then go after the Enku form, watch out for Nezha's 
Frenzy skill and keep an eye on Raidou and his demons' HP. Not terribly 
hard to win.
================================

After the battle continue following the path as before and then take the 
same path you took when you were chasing Tatsumi in Mannen-Cho follow it 
until you see another Wind Current, don't take the Wind Current yet, 
instead go south as far as you can and get the Anti-Mind then head back to 
the Wind Current and use it.

When you arrive at this screen climb up the ladder and go south to where 
the masked men sent Raidou to the Fukurutsubo and claim the Turquoise, now 
head back. Go south and ignore the alley that goes west halfway down 
because all you'll find there is Moh Shuvuu and another Wind Current that 
sends you back to the docks, keep heading south and you'll find that you 
are blocked by a rock wall (the Poltergeist nearby mentions this,) summon 
a Fury Order Demon and use their Investigative skill, further down the 
path near the Dragon Cave that maid will be there again, she'll stop 
Raidou and tell him that Dr. Victor has created a new process called Sword 
Alchemy, I won't go into detail here so pleas refer to my Sword Alchemy 
section for more information.

Save your game at the Dragon Cave and continue following the path, 
eventually you'll run into another Preta Form, watch the scenes and you'll 
lose the Valuable: Croquette, when presented with a choice pick the firs 
one, afterwards continue on down the path and use the Wind Current at the 
end.

In this area just follow the path to the end and get the Asuka Mirror from 
the crystal, climb up the ladder and head south along the rooftops, you 
can talk to Nakisawame, when all healed up save at the Dragon Cave. Now 
before we head north and approach Tatsumi there are a few more Case Files 
to be completed now, so leave Dark Mannen-Cho.

============================================
Case Files
============================================
Case File 1-9: Stare from the Crack
Case File 2-2: Missing Tiles
Case File 2-5: Selling Umbrellas

============================================
Case File 2-5: Selling Umbrellas
============================================
To open up Case 2-5 you need to talk to the Haguro-Gumi standing guard on 
the left side outside the Daikoku-Yu Storefront.

============================================
Case File 1-9: Stare from the Crack
============================================
This Case File opens up after you complete Case File 2-5 (I think) and 
have spoken to the Herald of Yatagarasu at the Nameless Shrine in Shinoda.

Go to Fukugawa-Cho and head towards where the Showroom in the 6th Ward is 
located, once there check the right side of the building and you'll find 
the lattice door mentioned, examine it and Makami will reveal itself, when 
presented with a choice pick the first one, afterwards you'll be in battle.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Makami x15
================================
Weakness:       |Attacks:
Frail: Force    |Strike
Null: Fire/Elec |Mazio
================================
Exp: 300
Loyalty: 36
Yen: 1200
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 21
Lilim Lvl 19
Archangel Lvl 20
================================
Strategy: Use any Force skills you have to take them out without too much 
trouble, have Dia set on Auto Repeat just in case something happens. 
Whenever you defeat one another one replaces it, I believe they keep on 
replacing each other until you reach fifteen, but I am not positive 
(confirmation anyone?)

The only skill they will use is Mazio which does decent damage if you 
aren't careful. Keep hitting them with Force skills watching your HP while 
evading their Mazio and eventually they will all be defeated ending the 
battle.
================================

-Alignment Choice-
"We can transcend nature itself."
"Humans and demons need to live in harmony."

================================
Case File 2-2: Missing Tiles
================================
This one opens up when you complete Case File 1-9. If you've been 
following my FAQ you should have all the tiles you need, to be sure here 
is a list:
Four Wind Tiles: Found in Tsukudo-Cho hidden on the right side of the path 
leading to the dead end alley where you found the Anti-Mind x2.
Scoring Sticks: Found in Fukugawa-Cho's 6th Ward hidden behind the banners 
on the western side.
Number Tiles: Found in Mannen-Cho in the Abandoned Temple by the closest 
eastern lamp.
Dragon Tiles: Received after defeating Rumored Makami in Case File 1-9.

End of Case File
================================

Now it's time to continue on with the main game, head all the way back to 
the last Dragon Cave in Dark Mannen-Cho, head north and approach Tatsumi. 
Watch the scenes and you'll be in another battle with Binbou-Gami.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Binbou-Gami
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Fire      |Rush
Strong: ???      |Mabufu
Null: ???        |Money Rain
Drain: ???       |Pulinpa
================================
Exp: 810
Loyalty: 10
Yen: 1
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 21
Lilim Lvl 19
Pyro Jack Lvl 19
================================
Strategy: This battle is your chance to get revenge on him for utterly 
destroying Raidou and Company earlier, he's frail to Fire so make sure to 
have a demon that can exploit that as much as possible with skills like 
Fire Slash, Fire Bullet, Agi, and Agirati, Maragi is hard to hit him with 
because he teleports around a lot so don't bother wasting MAG on for it. 
Make sure to have a demon with Dia and set it to Auto Repeat.

In the first part of the battle he'll only use Rush attacks, when you get 
him to around 75% health he'll add in Mabufu, at 50% he'll start using 
Money Rain, keep your demons hidden through the duration of this attack. 

Now to avoid his Money Rain look for shadows on the ground and stay away 
from those and you'll be fine, on the second portion of his skill just 
either block or roll out of the way, on the final portion of the skill 
stay in the center of the screen. At 25% he'll add Pulinpa which can be 
annoying if you aren't careful because sometimes he'll use that and Panic 
somebody like Raidou and then immediately after use Money Rain.

Just keep on hammering away at him with Fire skills and keep Raidou's and 
his demons' HP up. Eventually he will go down.
================================

After the battle watch the amusing scene (Masochist anyone?) and you'll 
automatically be back in Mannen-Cho. Watch some more scenes and then talk 
to Tatsumi, select the second choice to advance, on the next choice it 
doesn't really matter, afterwards a third choice will be added pick it, 
now show him the Photo of Dahn and pick whatever choice you want and watch 
the scene. You'll automatically be taken back to the Narumi Detective 
Agency.

the left side, speak with him if you are low on items. Continue up the 
stairs and speak with Tae, when she asks who she is say Asakura Kichou, 
and she'll tell you where the Fukuroku Inn is located so head there and 
talk with the staff woman in front.

============================================
Resort Environs
============================================
Items: Anti-Mind, Anti-Poison, Foxtail, Mansaku Sake, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: Tsukigata Photo
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
The entrance to the Shirahige Hot Springs is right next to the front of 
the inn, keep it mind for later. From the Fukuroku Inn take the eastern 
path, it's slightly hidden but you can tell it's there by the pole on the 
edge of the screen and head south down the path to a dead end with a Twig, 
go back to the entrance of the inn and head south again, check next to the 
kid standing here for an Ox Bezoar, from here keep heading south down the 
stairs and follow the path to a dead end and collect the Mansaku Sake in 
the corner, back track to where Tae was the day before, head south from 
here and then west down the path with the fence into another area.

Here go down the stairs and then check behind the man standing here for a 
hidden Foxtail, head back up and go north to the dead end and pick up the 
Anti-Poison, now back track and head all the way north to the Fire Tower 
and go west, once you pass the old woman here head left to a small dead 
end and pick up the Anti-Mind. That's it for items in this area, take the 
eastern exit out of the Resort Environs and follow the path on the world 
map ignoring the man and enter the Residential Area.

============================================
Residential Area
============================================
Items: Takumi Sake
Valuables: None
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
In this area head north past Narumi and Tae and exit back to the world map, 
at this short little section pick up the Takumi Sake and go back into the 
Residential Area, we're just going to ignore the exit to the right of Tae 
for now, head back to the Resort Environs.

============================================
Resort Environs
============================================
Items: Anti-Mind, Anti-Poison, Foxtail, Mansaku Sake, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: Tsukigata Photo
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Now that all the items are out of the way let's continue on with the 
investigation also be sure to have a Pagan Demon summoned because the only 
way Raidou is going to be able to get any useful information is having the 
Pagan Demon use Mind Read.

Here's a list of people who you'll want to speak with to gain some 
interesting bit of information, the only people who you really need to 
talk to however are the two little girls standing next to Tae:

Almond-eyed Woman: She's standing next to the path with the fence.
Energetic Villager: Go down the path with the fence, he's the guy standing 
in the corner when you first get to the next screen.
Tutting Elderly Lady: She's the woman to the north of the Energetic 
Villager.
Squinting Elderly Lady: Standing in the short dead end where you found the 
Anti-Mind.
The two little girls: They are standing next to Tae, choose to speak with 
the Girl with Tied Hair and then pick the first option, Gouto's notebook 
gets updated after.

Now to actually advance with the investigation go north past Narumi and 
the Fire Tower and speak with the man standing next to the stairs, choose 
to read his mind then speak with him again and choose the new option which 
shows up, afterwards you have to read his mind again after some short 
scenes you'll finally be able to pass.

Head north on the World Map and enter the Tento Woods.

============================================

============================================
Items: Amethyst, Aquamarine, Bead x3, Ox Bezoar, Pagan Bronze, Repulse 
Water, Turquoise
Valuables: None
Enemies: Angel, Jack Frost, Moh Shuvuu, Makami, Mokoi, Nezha, Onmoraki, 
Orthrus, Pixie, Poltergeist, Selket, Slime, Turdak, Ukobach
Boss: None
============================================
If you an encounter an Orthrus here be sure to negotiate because in doing 
so he will open up a Case File.

Head north for a scene, afterwards just continue north, head right and use 
the Wind Current to collect a Bead go back and continue north, use the 
Dragon Cave if you want and keep going north, try to leave for a scene, 
when presented with a choice pick the first option, speak with the Jubokko 
and pick whichever option you want and then grab the item behind for an Ox 
Bezoar, head south.

In this section surrounded by dark winds you'll keep on slipping on a 
Banana peels and lose yen. Head south, on the next screen open up the 
crystal for an Amethyst, head south if you speak with the Obariyon here 
he'll tell you about the Dark Zones. Keep heading south on the path, when 
you get to where there's a split ignore the southern path for just a 
second, to the west an Ice Rock Wall blocks the path summon Pyro Order 
Demon and use Ignite to melt it, we'll come back here at a later time, go 
south.

Keep heading east here following the path, you will run into a Wall of 
Flaming Rock summon a Frost Order Demon and use Cool Down to remove it, 
behind it you will find a Wind Current, west of here is a Dragon Cave. 
Save and then use the Wind Current.

This section of Tento Woods is basically a maze of Wind Currents, using 
each one will bring you to a different area with more Wind Currents, 
fairly straight forward but I will tell you how to get all the items here.

You'll land in what I'll now call the starting point.
Item 1 and 2: Go East, West, East and open up the crystal for a Repulse 
Water, now use the west current and open up the crystal for a Bead, take 
the Wind Current back to the beginning.

Item 3 and 4: Go East, West, West open up the two crystals for a Turquoise 
and Aquamarine, go back to the starting point via the Wind Current.

Item 5 and 6: Go West, West open up the crystal for a Kagura Flute, East, 
West open the crystal for another Bead, go back to the starting point.

Item 7: Go West, East, East and open up the final crystal in this area for 
a Pagan Bronze. Now head back to the starting point and use the south Wind 
Current to be taken back to the previous area.

We're done with exploring for items in this section so head back the way 
you came go south at the first split to get back to the screen you were 
initially on before the High Pixie teleported you away, keep on following 
the path until you get another scene with the High Pixie.

Dang it, she did it again, you're now back where the Dragon Cave and Wind 
Current were, just go back and this time head for another scene, when 
presented with a choice pick whatever option you want, leave and head 
north to enter Tsukigata Mansion.

"Very well."

================================
Strategy: Okay these guys can be dangerous if you aren't careful, like with 
the fight against the Rumored Makami when one falls another will replace 
the fallen foe. Note that these guys are much quicker than anything you've 
really faced so far. I've noticed that they like to use War Cry to 
increase their attack and then will all attack one character at the same 
time. Physical attacks are just about useless against these guys so your 
only option to take care of them fairly quickly is to use a lot of magic 
preferably Force or Death skills, also note that I think they can also 
cause one of your demons to protest so cure them of the status.

There are two ways to deal with these guys, have a Demon with Mazan or 
Zanrati (Mazan is more preferable however) and have them keep on spamming 
it, which in turn will stun the Obariyons or use Pagan Sword (Lilim has 
Pagan Sword if you're curious) and just attack them with Raidou's special 
move while they are stunned. My recommendation is to have a Demon like say 
Archangel use his Mazan skill and cast Pagan Sword on Raidou with Lilim 
and then have her switch to a Force skill while Raidou attacks, or you can 
instead have two demons with Force skills attacking.

Either way you choose you'll eventually defeat them all, just be careful 
though because their physical attacks will hurt so keep an eye on HP 
throughout the battle.
================================

After the battle you receive the 32 Gunto. Now with the Case File out of 
the way let's explore some more of Kasumidai, from your current position 
head north, on the next screen head east and pick up the Kagura Flute in 
front of the trees. Head all the way south to get back on the world map 
and claim another Kagura Flute and Anti-Poison x2, go back into Kasumidai, 
head back towards the Army HQ and go west from there following the path to 
and pick up Gouriki Sake at the end. Head back down to where you found the 
Ox Bezoar and head west follow the path past the cannon and head north 
towards the Diet Building, head west from here taking the furthest stairs 
away and on the next screen examine the blue sparkle for a Lu Incense, 
which should cover all the items in Kasumidai.

Now there is still a couple things to do here before we leave, first let's 
head back to the entrance of Kasumidai and speak with the officer in front 
of the Colonel Adachi Statue, hey it's an old friend Sadakichi, speak with 
him and then when he's done read his mind afterwards, he'll now start 
giving you Case Files, now head back to the other exit of Kasumidai and 
speak with the officer next to the car he'll say you must be Kuzunoha 
Raidou the 14th, say yes, oh look he's a Devil Summoner too, he'll 
introduce himself as Tsunatsugu Watanabe and ask Raidou to take some Cases 
on Sadakichi's behalf. You can read his mind but it doesn't really do a 
lot.

This is it for Kasumidai now let's leave. 

================================
Case File 1-10: Cursed House
================================
Head back to Mannen-Cho after accepting the Case File and speak with 
Kogure there again to gain further details. When he's done talking go back 
to the house where you found the Frost Steel on an earlier visit and speak 
with the man currently residing in the house, he'll mention the chicken 
outside is loud.

Now first thing that needs to be done is to go back outside and summon a 
Volt Demon using Inspect around the house (if you really don't want to 
keep on using it then go to the front door and use it there.) upon doing 
so a sparkle will show up so have Raidou examine it, the sparkle turns out 
to be a footprint of a demon. Now, you know the Chicken that has been 
mentioned a couple of times? Well summon a Frost Order Demon and use Cool 
Down on it, voila you've found your Demon a battle will ensue obviously.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Basilisk
================================
Weakness:            |Attacks:
Frail: Elec          |Strike
                     |Glacial Blast
                     |Petra
                     |Venom Strike
================================
Exp: 600
Loyalty: 11
Yen: 1830
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 25
Jubokko Lvl 23
Makami Lvl 15
================================
Strategy: The Basilisk can be problematic if you aren't paying attention, 
he is able to cause both Poison and Stone on Raidou and his demons, if he 
does inflict either status cure it right away, hell be prepared to dodge 
quickly because you can't afford to get hit by any of his attacks 
especially by Petra. Basilisk is Frail to Elec attacks so have demons that 
know Mazio or Ziorati and have those skills set to Auto Repeat.

Now when the battle first starts wait a couple of seconds and make sure 
your demons can't do anything, Basilisk will do one of two things, he'll 
either attack you and your demons or just walk towards you, you want the 
latter to happen if the former does then dodge the attack. Whatever he 
does when he's finished have both your demons attack with the Elec skills 
to stun him and unleash a special attack on him or just attack him. With 
the medium stun length Raidou should be able to get in one or two full 
attacks. After he recovers be prepared to either defend or dodge his 
counter attack.

Just repeat the steps of dodging/defending and hitting him with Elec 
skills and you will defeat him, just be very wary of his attacks as they 
all range from dangerous to lethal.
================================

After the battle he'll ask you to forgive him and summon two Item Crystals 
a Red and Blue one, the Red (Heavy Treasure Box) one has a Beetle and 
Large Stag Beetle, the Blue (Light Treasure Box) one only has Yen in it. 
The former of the two is the better choice, why? Well, you'll find out 
later.

End of Case File
================================

Now let us continue on with the main game, let's head back over to 
Kasumidai, once there speak with the man on the World Map and find out 
something strange is going on at the Narita Residence.

============================================
Narita Residence
============================================
Items: None
Valuables: None
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
Enter the Narita Residence and watch the scenes, when in control again 
speak with the officer on the right, and read the minds of the Butler and 
the officer on the left if you want, proceed north and examine the door.

============================================
Fukurutsubo
============================================
Items: Attract Water, Balm of Life, Kagura Flute, Ox Bezoar
Valuables: None
Enemies: Azumi, Archangel, Blob, Jack Frost, Koropokkur, Gozuki, Lamia, 
Luck Locust, Makami, Mezuki, Moh Shuvuu, Obariyon, Pixie, Pyro Jack, 
Selket, Slime
Boss: Soldier Bug Jiromaru (Green),
============================================
You will now start encountering Luck Locusts, to capture these Luck 
Locusts use a bird lime during battle. Sometimes at the beginning of the 
battle a type of Roulette will appear, it can either have all Positive 
effects or all Negative effects which provide some sort of penalty or 
bonus. Also if you encounter a Pyro Pyro Jack make sure to negotiate with 
him twice because it opens up two Case Files.

You can escape back to the Narita Manor by examining the tear in the air, 
anyways move northeast towards the Dragon Cave save. Head west from the 
Dragon Cave, south, and then north to encounter the Masked Men again, 
you'll be able to have a rematch against the Jiromaru that killed you off 
the first time.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Soldier Bug Jiromaru (Green)
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Fire      |Hopper Kick
Strong: ???      |Over Drive
Null: ???        |Sonic Wave
Drain: ???       |Wing Flap

Loyalty: 100
Yen: 1200
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 27
Orthrus Lvl 23
Pyro Jack Lvl 20
================================
Strategy: This time you don't have to worry about that miserable paralyzing 
agent, that aside this guy can still be dangerous, he's still frail to 
Fire so exploit that. Jiromaru still has the same attacks as before but at 
around 50% health he'll use an attack called Sonic Wave, at around 25% 
he'll start using an attack call Over Drive. Whenever you see Jiromaru 
charge up and get a message saying he is preparing for something guard 
because he will use Sonic Wave, if you just see him charging up with no 
message he'll use Over Drive which you can dodge or defend against. 

Just keep on using Fire skills like Agirati or if you really want Fire 
Slash and this oversized bug will go down in no time, keep an eye on HP 
because his attacks tend to hurt.
================================

With that taken care of we can now go ahead and explore for items, from 
where Raidou fought Jiromaru head north then east, on this screen head 
north and you will find Nakisawame, heal up if you need to, from here head 
east then south until you get to a Blue crystal, open it up for a Kagura 
Flute.

Go back to the path in the north where you first entered this screen and 
head west back to Nakisawame and continue west to the next screen then 
north, follow it all the way and collect the Ox Bezoar in the dead end and 
then head east.

On this screen there is a Dragon Cave to the north that we can't get to 
yet, so head east and then collect the two Item Crystals for a Balm of 
Life and Attract Water head south to be teleported and then retrace your 
steps back to the screen with the Dragon Cave to the north. 

When you are back on this screen head south back down to the screen with 
Nakisawame and then head north again which will open up the northern path 
and save your game, continue north when you are ready to find the Masked 
Men again.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Fukoshi Black Mask
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Ice       |Disturbance
                 |Sneak Attack

Loyalty: 16
Yen: 1500
Items: Insect Cage x2
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 33
Alraune Lvl 29
Kusi Mitama Lvl 30
================================
Strategy: For a boss these guys really aren't all that difficult, they are 
both frail to Ice so bring in a couple of demons that have Ice Skills, 
Glacial Blast will really do a number on them, when the battle begin and I 
ordered both my Demons to use Glacial Blast it brought them down to 50% 
health! If you don't have Glacial Blast then Mabufu will suffice. You have 
to defeat each one individually to win this battle so they each have a 
health bar. 

They have only one dangerous attack but it's easily recognized thus easily 
dodged. When they start teleporting around a lot they are going to use 
Sneak Attack which means they basically try teleport behind Raidou or his 
demons and then use Disturbance after. Wait to use Glacial Blast or any 
skill when they start doing that because it'll be hard to hit them. The 
other attack is called Disturbance which is very similar to Raidou's sword 
special except it completely surrounds them, you'll know they are going to 
use if you see them charging up with an orange/red circle around. Avoid 
those attacks and just keep on using Ice Skills and they will go down with 
no problem.
================================

After the battle watch the scenes and you'll be teleported back to the 
Narita Residence, before we go ahead and face off against the next boss 
we're going to take a break and do some extra stuff, there's the two Case 
Files we got from Pyro Pyro Jack that need to be completed and we shall go 
ahead and do some more exploration of the Capital.

============================================
Case Files
============================================
The following Case Files are available:
Case File 2-4: Bug Collector (1)
Case File 3-7: Long-Distance Dating

End of Case File
============================================

============================================
Capital Exploration
============================================
Items: Antoine's Fur, Emerald, Rakuyou Chalice, Repulse Water, St Incense, 
Twig, Wood Ornament, Yamiyo Sake
Valuables: None
Enemies: None
Boss: None
============================================
First thing we shall do as we're exploring the Capital is to head over to 
Fukugawa-Cho.

============================================
Fukugawa-Cho
============================================
Once here head on over to the Empty Lot by the canal and have Raidou's 
Demon go on a Solo exploration and examine the dog (whose name is 
apparently Antoine) to obtain some fur, transform into Antoine and examine 
the small hole to the right to obtain an Emerald we're done here so let's 
now go to Mannen-Cho.

============================================
Mannen-Cho
============================================
Remember all those wells dotted around here? Let's go ahead and get those 
out of the way. We'll start with the well in the backyard of the southern 
house by the docks where you met a Pyro Onmoraki way back in Chapter 1 to 
obtain St Incense, next we'll hit up the well where Kogure Osamu's son is 
standing to obtain a Twig, the next well is on the western side in a 
little alley near the Abandoned Temple, that one contains a Wood Ornament. 
That should be all the wells in Mannen-Cho.

Next thing to do here is to go Queen's Road where Cross Dresser standing 
across from the room where you chased Tatsumi into and send your Demon on 
a Solo Investigation, observe the Cross Dresser and pull "her" hair. The 
last thing to do here is to head over to the door that was jammed, 
transform into Antoine when you get here to and examine the hole to get 
inside and obtain Yamiyo Sake, this is it for Mannen-Cho. Make your way 
over to Kasumidai.

============================================
Kasumidai
============================================
Once you're here head over to the eastern side of Kasumidai and stay on 
the left side following the bushes down until you get to another small 
hole, transform into Antoine and go inside to obtain a Rakuyou Chalice, 
then check the next one to obtain a Repulse Water. That's all for 
exploration.

Once you take care of everything save and then head back to the Narita 
Residence, enter the door watch the scenes and be prepared for the next 
boss.

-Alignment Choice-
I'll pretend I didn't see you...
Unless you're here to get in my way.
"That's right."
"No."

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Fukoshi Dahn
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Elec      |Burning Resolve
                 |Demon Hunt
                 |Poison Smash
                 |Tarukaja
================================
Soldier Bug Taromaru
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Ice       |Flap Wings
Strong: ???      |Hopper Kick
Null: ???        |Over Drive
Drain: ???       |Sonic Wave
================================
Exp: 1500
Loyalty: 14
Yen: 3500
Items: Insect Cage
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 33
Alraune Lvl 29
Kusi Mitama Lvl 30
================================
Strategy: This battle technically takes place in three phases, the first 
phase is against Dahn by himself, the second phase is against Soldier Bug 
Taromaru, and the last phase is against Dahn again. Be warned that Soldier 
Bug Taromaru has all the same attacks as Soldier Bug Jiromaru including 
Sonic Wave. As far as what skills Dahn has are Poison Smash, which can 
poison Raidou or his demons, and Demon Hunt which is a fairly powerful 
attack. Like the Fukoshi Black Mask before he can teleport around the 
battlefield.

When the battle starts you want to have Demons with Mazio or Ziorati 
because Dahn is weak to Elec, basically just have your Demons attack with 
whichever skill you have and wait for him to get stunned, then go up and 
attack him with a Special or regular combo. At 50% health Dahn will summon 
Taromaru.

In this portion of the battle switch out Demons who have any Ice skills, 
unlike Jiromaru, Taromaru is weak to Ice not Fire. Glacial Blast should do 
significant damage to Taromaru and you should be able to finish this 
portion of the battle fairly quickly, remember to watch out for his 
attacks, he'll use Over Drive three times in a row instead of just once so 
either block or roll out the way, when he uses Hopper Kick moving in one 
direction only and you should be fine. Finally hide your Demons while 
Raidou blocks if he charges up to use Sonic Wave.

The third and final portion of battle begins when you defeat Taromaru, now 
Dahn will add another attack to his repertoire called Burning Resolve, the 
only thing you can do with this one is block because you can't dodge it, 
you'll know when he's about to use it when you get a message saying he is 
preparing for something. Keep your eye on HP and heal any status ailment 
and you should be fine.
================================

After the battle watch some more scenes.

-Alignment Choice-
Do you believe we could settle the matter of my wedding with a peaceful 
conversation?
"I do."
"I don't."

More scenes and you can save your game.

north to find yourself on a dock in Fukugawa-Cho and collect the Diamond

Raidou Lvl 36

Yoshitsune Lvl 29
================================
Strategy: Another battle where the fallen enemies get replaced immediately 
by another one, the Oni is Frail to Elec and Death skills so have Demons 
who have those types of skills, it would also help to have Demons strong 
against Phys because the Oni uses a lot of Physical attacks, these guys 
sometimes use Luck Roulette of the Beast so just keep that in mind. 
Watch out for their Frenzy and Rush skills.

When the battle starts have your Demons use Elec or Death skills and set 
it to Auto Repeat, the physical attacks of the Oni hurt so keep an eye on 
your HP throughout the fight if you get low heal. Essentially keep on 
hitting the Oni with Elec or Death skills, stun them and then attack with 
a sword special, what you also might want to do is imbue Raidou's sword 
with either a Elec or Death element which will give you an edge over them, 
just try to defeat them as quickly as possible while watching HP levels. 
================================

After the battle watch some more scenes and find out the curse won't 
disappear, leave the Training Hall and then let's go talk to Watanabe 
Tsunatsugu again. Head back over to Kasumidai and speak with him if you 
want.

============================================
Case File 3-10: Guard Mission

mainly of fighting Preta and Enku Demons, not really worth mentioning you 
do remember what they are weak against right? The second phase consists of 
fighting Nekomata and Okiku-mushi demons, beware of Marin Karin and 
Pulinpa switch to demons that are immune to Mind Skills and have Fire and 
Elec skills. The third phase of the battle is back to fighting Preta and 
Enku Demons, and the final phase of the battle is against two Gashadokuros 
whom are tougher than the rest beware of Petra as that is a dangerous move 
when a demon gets hit with immediately cure the status, switch out to 
demons who have Force Skills to deal with them. Be sure to keep an eye on 
your HP because this is going to be a long fight.

Raidou Lvl 36
Alraune Lvl 29
Legion Lvl 26
================================
Strategy: If you fought him in the North Training Hall then you know what 
to expect, the only difference between this fight and the one in the North 
Training Hall is that you have to beat White Rider in 5 Minutes thankfully 
the timer counts down really slow, isn't that fantastic? Also he seems to 
be a lot easier to stun this time around.

When the battle starts White Rider will use Luck Roulette of the Beast 
when he's done using that have your two Demons use any Ice Skill they have 
and let White Rider have it, the whole beginning of the battle will pretty 
much consist of White Rider using Mamudo which won't be a problem if your 
Demons can either null or absorb it.

At around 50% health he'll start using an attack called Victory of Fire 
which can't be dodged and really hurts even if you are blocking, make sure 
you hide your Demons and block when you see the message White Rider is 
preparing for something, though note that sometimes when you get that 
message he'll use Luck Roulette of the Beast instead but just hide your 
Demons and guard as you don't want to get killed because he used Victory 
of Fire instead Luck Roulette of the Beast. At around 25% health he'll 
start using Rush which hurts all I can say is dodge or block it.

Before we do anything here make a note that it is possible to encounter 
White Rider during a New Moon so just be aware of that. The items are 
found inside the Red Crystals however what you get is solely determined by 
what type of personality your Summoned Demon has.

Open up all the Crystals here and wander around fighting battles until you 
get a message saying you feel the aura of a terrifying presence in the

Raidou Lvl 34

Yoshitsune Lvl 29
================================
Strategy: You have the choice of either negotiating with him or defeating 
him, if you decide to go with the latter then make sure to bring in Demons 
that have Ice Skills and can nullify Death skills because White Rider 
likes to use Mamudo a lot.

When the battle starts White Rider will use Luck Roulette of the Beast 
when he's done using that have your two Demons use any Ice Skill they have 
and let White Rider have it, the whole beginning of the battle will pretty 
much consist of White Rider using Mamudo which won't be a problem if your 
Demons can either null or absorb it.

At around 50% health he'll start using an attack called Victory of Fire 
which can't be dodged and really hurts even if you are blocking, make sure 
you hide your Demons and block when you see the message White Rider is 
preparing for something, though note that sometimes when you get that 
message he'll use Luck Roulette of the Beast instead but just hide your 
Demons and guard as you don't want to get killed because he used Victory 
of Fire instead Luck Roulette of the Beast. At around 25% health he'll 
start using Rush which hurts all I can say is dodge or block it.

The only foreseeable issue is that you might run low on Mag and White 
Rider doesn't stun very easily so just be wary of that, however if you 
manage to hit when he comes out of his teleportation you have a higher 
chance of stunning him so keep that in mind as well.

Case Files                         [Raiho90]
============================================
Case Files are side quests that can be done at any point upon accepting 
one, they are triggered by talking to certain people, by Demons that 
request some sort of help when you negotiate with them or by completing 
other Case Files. 

I generally recommend doing them either right after or shortly after you 
get them, in fact some of them are required to do in order to acquire an 
item to be able to continue with the main story, so as soon as you get one 
complete it. Also note that some Case Files are repeatable.

This section will list all the Case Files you can do in this game, how you 
activate them, how to complete and what rewards you receive.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Oboroguruma
================================
Weakness:        |Attacks:
Frail: Zan       |Rush
Null: Elec/Death |Mazio
================================
Exp: 100
Loyalty: 9
Yen: 800
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 15
Moh Shuvuu Lvl 14
Nezha Lvl 14
================================
Strategy: You have three minutes to defeat Rumored Oboroguruma which is 
more than enough time, make sure to have one Demon with Force skills as 
Rumored Oboroguruma is Frail to it, and the other Demon should have a 
decent physical skill.

When the battle starts have your Demon with the Force skill use it and 
hope it stuns Oboroguruma, if not hopefully you have it set to Auto Repeat 
and they'll just try again, when it does finally stun him have the other 
Demon use their Physical skill while Raidou attacks with his sword. Just 
keep on using Force skills and attacking with Raidou and his other demon 
and he'll go down fairly quickly.
================================

============================================
Case File 1-9: Stare from the Cracks
============================================
Activation: Speak with the Herald of Yatagarasu at the Nameless Shrine, I 
believe Case File 2-5 needs to also have been completed (confirmation?)
Repeatable: No
Completion: Go to Fukugawa-Cho and head towards the Showroom in the 6th 
Ward, check the right side to find the lattice door, examine it to reveal 
a Makami, defeat him and the Case File is completed.
Reward: Dragon Tile
Other Notes: This item is part of a Case File you open up after completing 
this one.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Makami
================================
Weakness:       |Attacks:
Frail: Force    |Strike
Null: Fire/Elec |Mazio
================================
Exp: 300
Loyalty: 36
Yen: 1200
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 21
Lilim Lvl 19
Archangel Lvl 20
================================
Strategy: Use any Force skills you have to take them out without too much 
trouble, have Dia set on Auto Repeat just in case something happens. 
Whenever you defeat one another one replaces it, I believe they keep on 
replacing each other until you reach fifteen, but I am not positive 
(confirmation anyone?)

The only skill they will use is Mazio which does decent damage if you 
aren't careful. Keep hitting them with Force skills watching your HP while 
evading their Mazio and eventually they will all be defeated ending the 
battle.
================================

============================================
Case File 1-10: Cursed House
============================================
Activation: Speak with Kogure Osamu at the Gambling Parlor in Mannen-Cho.
Repeatable: No
Completion: Defeat the Rumored Basilisk.
Reward: Wind Bronze x2
Other Notes: When the Basilisk gives you a choice between two different 
colored Item Crystals go with the Red Crystal (Heavy Treasure Box) because 
that one contains two items you'll need for another Case File later on.

BOSS BATTLE
================================
Rumored Basilisk
================================
Weakness:            |Attacks:
Frail: Elec          |Strike
                     |Glacial Blast
                     |Petra
                     |Venom Strike
================================
Exp: 600
Loyalty: 11
Yen: 1830
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 25
Jubokko Lvl 23
Makami Lvl 15
================================
Strategy: The Basilisk can be problematic if you aren't paying attention, 
he is able to cause both Poison and Stone on Raidou and his demons, if he 
does inflict either status cure it right away, hell be prepared to dodge 
quickly because you can't afford to get hit by any of his attacks 
especially by Petra. Basilisk is Frail to Elec attacks so have demons that 
know Mazio or Ziorati and have those skills set to Auto Repeat.

Now when the battle first starts wait a couple of seconds and make sure 
your demons can't do anything, Basilisk will do one of two things, he'll 
either attack you and your demons or just walk towards you, you want the 
latter to happen if the former does then dodge the attack. Whatever he 
does when he's finished have both your demons attack with the Elec skills 
to stun him and unleash a special attack on him or just attack him. With 
the medium stun length Raidou should be able to get in one or two full 
attacks. After he recovers be prepared to either defend or dodge his 
counter attack.

Just repeat the steps of dodging/defending and hitting him with Elec 
skills and you will defeat him, just be very wary of his attacks as they 
all range from dangerous to lethal.

================================
Rumored Obariyon
================================
Weakness:          |Attacks:
Frail: Force/Death |Strike

                   |War Cry
================================
Exp: 500
Loyalty: 40
Yen: 1840
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 25
Archangel Lvl 20
Jubokko Lvl 23
================================
Strategy: Okay these guys can be dangerous if you aren't careful, like with 
the fight against the Rumored Makami when one falls another will replace 
the fallen foe. Note that these guys are much quicker than anything you've 
really faced so far. I've noticed that they like to use War Cry to 
increase their attack and then will all attack one character at the same 
time. Physical attacks are just about useless against these guys so your 
only option to take care of them fairly quickly is to use a lot of magic 
preferably Force or Death skills, also note that I think they can also 
cause one of your demons to protest so cure them of the status.

There are two ways to deal with these guys, have a Demon with Mazan or 
Zanrati (Mazan is more preferable however) and have them keep on spamming 
it, which in turn will stun the Obariyons or use Pagan Sword (Lilim has 
Pagan Sword if you're curious) and just attack them with Raidou's special 
move while they are stunned. My recommendation is to have a Demon like say 
Archangel use his Mazan skill and cast Pagan Sword on Raidou with Lilim 
and then have her switch to a Force skill while Raidou attacks, or you can 
instead have two demons with Force skills attacking.

Either way you choose you'll eventually defeat them all, just be careful 
though because their physical attacks will hurt so keep an eye on HP 
throughout the battle.
================================

============================================
Case File 2-10: The Curse Reborn
============================================
Activation: Speak with Watanabe Tsunatsugu in Kasumidai.
Repeatable: No
Completion: Go to the North Training Hall and defeat the Fury Oni there.
Reward: Bizen-osafune

Boss Battle
================================
Oni
================================
Weakness:         |Attacks:
Frail: Elec/Death |Frenzy
                  |Luck Roulette of the Beast
                  |Mudo
                  |Rush
================================
Exp: 1120
Loyalty: 28
Yen: 2380
Items: None
================================
Party: 
Raidou Lvl 36
Tsuchigumo Lvl 22
Yoshitsune Lvl 29
================================
Strategy: Another battle where the fallen enemies get replaced immediately 
by another one, the Oni is Frail to Elec and Death skills so have Demons 
who have those types of skills, it would also help to have Demons strong 
against Phys because the Oni uses a lot of Physical attacks, these guys 
sometimes use Luck Roulette of the Beast so just keep that in mind. 
Watch out for their Frenzy and Rush skills.

When the battle starts have your Demons use Elec or Death skills and set 
it to Auto Repeat, the physical attacks of the Oni hurt so keep an eye on 
your HP throughout the fight if you get low heal. Essentially keep on 
hitting the Oni with Elec or Death skills, stun them and then attack with 
a sword special, what you also might want to do is imbue Raidou's sword 
with either a Elec or Death element which will give you an edge over them, 
just try to defeat them as quickly as possible while watching HP levels.

================================
Strategy: If you fought him in the North Training Hall then you know what 
to expect, the only difference between this fight and the one in the North 
Training Hall is that you have to beat White Rider in 5 Minutes thankfully 
the timer counts down really slow, isn't that fantastic? Also he seems to 
be a lot easier to stun this time around.

When the battle starts White Rider will use Luck Roulette of the Beast 
when he's done using that have your two Demons use any Ice Skill they have 
and let White Rider have it, the whole beginning of the battle will pretty 
much consist of White Rider using Mamudo which won't be a problem if your 
Demons can either null or absorb it.

At around 50% health he'll start using an attack called Victory of Fire 
which can't be dodged and really hurts even if you are blocking, make sure 
you hide your Demons and block when you see the message White Rider is 
preparing for something, though note that sometimes when you get that 
message he'll use Luck Roulette of the Beast instead but just hide your 
Demons and guard as you don't want to get killed because he used Victory 
of Fire instead Luck Roulette of the Beast. At around 25% health he'll 
start using Rush which hurts all I can say is dodge or block it.

Sword Alchemy                    [Raiho0100]
============================================
This section will go more in depth into an interesting new feature to the 
Devil Summoner series, Sword Alchemy.

============================================
Introduction                     [Raiho0101]
============================================
What is Sword Alchemy?
While not new to the Shin Megami Tensei series, it is new to the Devil 
Summoner series. Basically Sword Alchemy enables you to create new swords 
by using different Steel and materials. There are three different types of 
weapons you can create Blades, Spears, and Axes. Note that you won't see a 
different weapon type if you use Raidou's basic combo, the weapon type 
only manifests itself when you use a Skill with the designated type of 
weapon or use Raidou's special sword attack by pressing /\.

When do I have access to Sword Alchemy?
You first gain access to Sword Alchemy while chasing after Tatsumi in Dark 
Mannen-Cho, when you get to the third Dragon Cave a maid will stop you and 
tell you that it's available.

What do I need to be able to perform Sword Alchemy?
You need to have a Renki Sword as your base, you also need certain 
crystals to create another weapon type from it.
What Do I need to be able to perform Sword Alchemy?

Where can I find said Materials?
The materials needed to perform Sword Alchemy can be gotten several ways:
A drop after battle.
A gift from a Demon upon leveling up or negotiating with them.
Found in the Item Crystals.
A reward for completion of a Case File.

To get Renki Steel you can find it inside some Crystals, by defeating a 
sword wielding Demon and they will sometimes drop it, or you will receive 
it as reward for completion of Case File 3-10.

Weapons List                     [Raiho0105]
============================================
This will be a list of all the weapons you can create through Sword 
Alchemy, it will have the strength of the weapon, any bonus you get with 
it, cost, and the amount materials needed to create it. I will also 
include my evaluation of the weapon.

============================================
Blades: This is the basic weapon type and the cheapest type to create. 
There is a good balance between Strength, Speed, and Range, Blade type 
weapons swing behind when using a special attack which makes them useful 
in situations where Raidou is surrounded. Skills designated with a Sword 
Icon can only be used with this Weapon type.

=================================================
Bizen-osafune
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus      |Material       |Cost    |
Atk: 150 |Item Bonus |Pyro Steel x2  |2000 Yen|
Mag: 1   |           |Frost Steel x1 |        |
Lu:  1   |           |               |        |
=================================================
Analysis: This weapon is quite mediocre, only slightly better than his 
base sword. The stat bonuses provided aren't that great, and the Item 
Bonus is only useful if you use a lot of healing items during battle.
=================================================

=================================================
Kotetsu
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus       |Material       |Cost    |
Atk: 180 |Fire Boost  |Pyro Bronze x1 |4000 Yen|
Ma:  2   |            |Frost Steel x2 |        |
=================================================
Analysis: Only good thing about this weapon is that you have Mag +2 added 
to Raidou's stat, Fire Boost is only useful if you like using Fire 
Slash/Bullet/Sword a lot, otherwise don't waste the material or money on 
it.
=================================================

=================================================
Muramasa
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus       |Material        |Cost    |
Atk: 210 |Ice Boost   |Pyro Bronze  x2 |8000 Yen|
Ma:  2   |            |Frost Bronze x2 |        |
Lu:  1   |            |                |        |
=================================================
Analysis: Well you have Ma +2 but that is about it, Ice boost is only 
useful if you like using Ice Slash/Bullet/Sword. Also note that to 
complete one of the Case Files you actually need to create this sword.
=================================================

=====
Spear: This weapon type tends to be the weakest of the three and is the 
mid range cost of the weapons. It's best used against single enemies and 
what it lacks in power is counter balanced by the longer range and faster 
speed. Its special allows for many multiple hits but can only hit the 
enemy in front of Raidou which makes it an ideal type for Boss enemies. 
Skills designated with a Spear Icon can only be used with this weapon type.
=====

=================================================
Himezuru
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus      |Material       |Cost    |
Atk: 140 |Mana Bonus |Wind Steel x2  |2200 Yen|
Vi:  1   |           |Skill Steel x1 |        |
Lu:  1   |           |               |        |
=================================================
Analysis: It's slightly weaker than the Bizen-osafune, its stat bonuses 
are all right, but is usefulness is better because of the Mana Bonus. It 
costs 200 yen more but if you use a lot of magic than you might want to 
consider this weapon.
=================================================

=================================================
Kanesada
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus         |Material       |Cost    |
Atk: 170 |1/2 Ice/Force |Wind Bronze x1 |4400 Yen|
Ma:  1   |              |Skill Steel x2 |        |
Vi:  1   |              |               |        |
Lu:  1   |              |               |        |
=================================================
Analysis: 1/2 Ice/Force is useful because Raidou will take less damage 
from any Ice or Force type attack, the +1 in both Mag and Vi is all right 
but it does raise Maximum HP and MP.
=================================================

=================================================
Kogarasumaru
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus       |Material        |Cost    |
Atk: 205 |Force Boost |Wind Bronze  x2 |8600 Yen|
Ma:  1   |            |Skill Bronze x2 |        |
Vi:  2   |            |                |        |
Lu:  1   |            |                |        |
=================================================
Analysis: Vi +2 is fine but that's about where it ends, the other two stat 
boosts are negligible aside from maybe Ma and Force Boost is useless 
unless you like using the respective skills.
=================================================

====
Axe: The strongest weapon type of the three, the most expensive to create. 
These weapon types have excellent power but severely lack any speed or 
range. Its special allows you to charge up the attack and does have an 
area of effect but it's only around where the weapon hits the ground. It's 
ideal to use against some bosses or if you are fighting large groups in a 
confined area, there are no multiple hits either. Skills designated with 
an Axe Icon can only be used with this weapon type. Personally, I would 
avoid creating any axe types unless you absolutely have to, stick to the 
Blade and Spear types.
====

=================================================
32 Gunto
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus       |Material      |Cost    |
Atk: 120 |            |              |        |
St: 2    |            |              |        |
=================================================
Analysis: Uhh yeah, not really a whole lot to say about this particular 
axe other than create a new weapon out of it a soon as possible, 
completely useless.
=================================================

=================================================
Nagamitsu
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus       |Material      |Cost    |
Atk: 200 |Drain       |Fury Steel x2 |5000 Yen|
St: 3    |            |Volt Steel x2 |        |
=================================================
Analysis: St +3 is good to cause more damage. Drain is useful for the 
faster Mag Absorption rate.
=================================================

=================================================
Kiyotsune
=================================================
Stats    |Bonus          |Material       |Cost    |
Atk: 230 |Vengeance Seal |Fury Bronze x2 |9200 Yen|
HP:   10 |               |Volt Bronze x1 |        |
St:    3 |               |               |        |
=================================================
Analysis: HP +10 is helpful so is St +3. Vengeance Seal is a meh because 
if you don't die a whole lot in battle then it's pretty useless, plus 
you'll only get revived once so if you die again you're screwed.
=================================================
