    About the game:
    
       Lamento - Beyond the Void is a Boys Love (that is, boy x boy
     romance) PC game developed by Nitro+Chiral that was released
     on October 27, 2006. The game has only been released in Japan
     and exists only in Japanese, so please don't go around asking
     for an English version -- there isn't one. This guide exists
     to help English-speaking people play the game with less
     difficulty. Though keep in mind that the game is so
     ridiculously long and text heavy (most of the text is novel-
     like descriptive text that isn't voiced), so if you can't
     understand ANY Japanese... good luck. I guess you can
     at least enjoy the pretty graphics and voices! 
    
       Anyway, the game is an 18+ (adults only!) text adventure 
     featuring great voice acting (see the voice actors section).
     There are 60 save game slots (you can save anywhere) and
     143 CGs (including background images) to unlock. The
     following walkthroughs are SPOILER-FREE and will just
     give you the basics info you need to collect all of the
     CGs and endings.
    
       Please also note that names, terms, decisions and whatnot
    will all be given in both English and Japanese, so make sure
    you're viewing the document with the proper Japanese text
    encoding so you see Japanese text instead of funny symbols.
    
    Introduction to the story:
    
       The game takes place in a fictional world inhabited by 
    Ribika (who look like humans but have cat ears and tails).
    Their world has fallen into dark times -- a mysterious void
    has made some places (and even animals) impossible to touch,
    causing major food shortages. A strange and deadly disease
    is also spreading.
    
       The hero, Konoe (who you guide through the game), exists in
    this miserable world, living alone in the starving village 
    of Karou. The story begins with Konoe in Karou, where he
    suddenly begins to see horrible dreams...

                               PART II
                 ===================================
               ||            Characters             ||
                 ===================================
    
    [Ribika]
    
       Konoe (コノエ):  The main character of the story. Is from a
                        village called Karou, where he lives alone.
                        He is self-conscious of his tail, which is
                        hooked at the end. He doesn't like being
                        around fire, so he keeps his room lit at
                        night with a Michishirube no Ha (if I
                        suddenly use a strange term like that,
                        it's probably explained in Section III, so
                        go look there!)
    
       Rai (ライ):      A silver-haired cat who wears an eyepatch. 
                        He's a skilled bounty hunter who wields two
                        swords and has a cold attitude. His
                        catchphrase of sorts is calling everyone
                        "bakaneko" (stupid cat). 
                   
       Asato (アサト): A simple-minded warrior from a village
                       called Kira. He has dark skin and black
                       fur. He's extremely socially awkward and
                       has a hard time with crowds and a very
                       simple, almost child-like way of speaking.
                       Despite his awkwardness, he is very loyal
                       and protective of those he likes.
    
       Bardo (バルド): A striped cat who owns an inn in Ransen.
                       He's an older cat who's wiser and more
                       experienced than the rest of the cast.
                       He has a cheerful attitude and is good
                       at cooking for his inn's guests. 
    
    [Devils/Demons]
    
       Razel (ラゼル): The Devil of Wrath. He can manipulate
                       fire. Despite his title, he's actually
                       usually calm and collected.  
    
       Verg (ヴェルグ): The Devil of Pleasure. He can
                        manipulate lightning. He's a quick-
                        tempered demon who hates Ribika.
    
       Kaltz (カルツ): The Devil of Grief. Can manipulate
                       water. He's a gloomy-looking demon
                       who prefers being alone and keeping
                       conversations short. 
    
       Froud (フラウド): The Devil of Joy. Can manipulate
                         wind. A strange demon who always
                         seems friendly and happy, but his
                         true feelings are more difficult
                         to read. 
    
    [Villains]
    
       Leaks (リークス): A mysterious magician with a
                         deep hatred for the world. 
    
       Firi (フィリ): A strange boy who is neither Ribika
                      nor demon who often appears in Konoe's
                      path to provoke him. 
    
       Ul / Kil (ウル / キル): Twin cats who have targeted
                         Konoe. They work as a team, with
                         Kil as the Touga and Ul as the
                         Sanga. 
                      
    [Etc]
    
       A Poet (歌うたい): A mysterious singing cat who often
                          appears before Konoe during the story. 
    
       Kagari (カガリ): A white-haired cat from Kira. The only
                        female in her village. She's a strong
                        fighter who cares for Asato as if he
                        were family.
    
       Tokino (トキノ): A merchant cat from Ransen. He's about
                        Konoe's age, so they easily became
                        friends. He comes to Karou every now
                        and then for both business and to visit
                        Konoe.

                               PART III
                 ===================================
               ||         Key Places / Terms        ||
                 ===================================
    
    [Places]
    
       Shisa (祇沙): The island country on which the story takes
                     place. A heavily forested world that has
                     no sun. Their world instead has two moons
                     that alternate in the sky.
                      
       Karou (火楼): A small and violent village on the south-
                     west end of Shisa. The game's story begins here.
    
       Kira (吉良):  A village that keeps itself hidden from the
                     public. The village is very strict and
                     protective of its rules and customs. The
                     cats living in Kira are all pure-blooded
                     descendants of of other Kira cats since
                     the villagers do not mingle with others.
    
       Ransen (藍閃): Shisa's most prosperous town. The town
                      holds special festivals every spring and
                      winter. Ransen is also famous for its
                      large library. Bardo's inn is located
                      in Ransen.
    
       Setsura (刹羅): A village known for its large, strong cats.
    
    [Terms]
    
       Ribika (リビカ): A race of creatures that look like
                        humans with cat ears and tails. They
                        also have cat-like behavior. If you
                        ever hear the word "cat" in the game,
                        they're talking about Ribika.
    
       Futatsu Zue (二つ杖): The Ribika word (literally means
                         "two walking sticks") for humans --
                          a race that exists in Shisa only in
                          legends.
    
       Utsuro (虚ろ):   A mysterious phenomenon slowly invading
                        Shisa. Plants and animals living in
                        places affected by Utsuro can not be
                        touched. If Ribika touch something
                        contaminated by Utsuro, they feel a
                        sharp pain. The spreading Utsuro has made
                        it very difficult for surrounding villages
                        to get food, causing starvation in the
                        area.
    
       Shikku (失躯):   A strange disease that exists in Shisa.
                        Ribika affected by the disease will notice
                        part of their body suddenly missing,
                        followed by pain and fever. The rate of
                        death from Shikku is extremely high among
                        females, so females have become a bit rare.
    
       Touga (闘牙):    Touga are skilled fighters. When working
                        as a pair with a Sanga, the Sanga supports
                        the Touga with a song that significantly
                        raises the Touga's combat abilities.
                        Anyone can become a Touga with training.
    
       Sanga (賛牙):    Works in pairs with a Touga to support
                        the Touga with the power of song. Though
                        they use the power of song, they don't
                        actually sing in combat -- a sound that
                        their Touga can hear is emitted from their
                        bodies often without actual sound or words.
                        Unlike Touga, one can only become a Sanga
                        through birth -- you have to be born with
                        the ability. Because of this, Sanga are
                        highly sought after.
    
       Michishirube no Ha (道しるべの葉): Literally a "path-
                         finding leaf. It is a leaf that absorbs
                         light and glows enough to light up a
                         room. Konoe uses Michishirube no Ha
                         because he does not like fire (as a
                         lantern would use).
    
       Kuim (クィム):    A fictional fruit that is Konoe's
                         favorite. The fruit is said to have a
                         sweet and sour taste. In official
                         merchandise, the fruit's appearance is
                         small and perfectly round with a pinkish-
                         red color and a single leaf sticking out
                         of it.
    
       Meigi (冥戯):     A tribe of demon worshippers. Has strong
                         feelings against Kira and its people.

                 ===================================
    
    [Main Menu]
    
       The main menu is in English, so it shouldn't give English-
      speaking players any problems. But just in case, here are
      the options on the main menu and their function:
    
          Start --> begins a new game
          Load --> loads a previously-saved game
          Config --> leads to the config page (see below)
          Extra* --> leads to the extras page (see below)
          Exit --> exits and closes the game
          Linear Notes* --> leads to a secret area with bonus
                            game commentary and images
    
        * = you must beat the game at least once with a
            GOOD ENDING to unlock these starred options
    
    [Config]
    
       These options are all written in Japanese, so I'll translate
     from the top:
    
     Message-related options: 
    
         Game Speed (ゲームスピード) : You can pick between
             "normal", "Quick A", "Quick B", or "Low Spec".
             It's the speed the game runs at. In normal mode,
             text appears letter by letter into the text box.
             In Quick A mode, the speed the text appears is faster.
             In Quick B mode, the text fills the box instantly.
             "Low Spec" mode should be used for slower computers
             that have trouble running the game.
    
         Message Speed (メッセージスピード): self-explanatory. Move
             the bar left if you want the game's text to move faster,
             right if you want it slower.
    
         Keep Skip on after Decisions (選択肢後も継続してスキップ):
             If you're holding shift to skip previously-seen text,
             turn this option on to remain in skip mode even after
             you have to stop and choose a decision from a menu of
             choices without having to press shift again. Default
             is off.
    
         Skip Even Unread/New Text (未読時でもスキップ) : When using the 
             text skip mode to quickly scroll through text, turn this
             option on if you want to skip even text you have not
             seen before. When it's off (default = off), holding the
             shift key (to activate text skipping) will only speed
             through text you have already seen before (in a previous
             play-through, for example). So use caution when turning
             this option on so you don't accidentally miss new
             text when you're replaying the game.
    
      Sound-related options:
    
         From the top, the options are:
    
             * Turn on/off BGM (background music)
             * Adjust BGM volume
             * Turn on/off sound effects
             * Adjust sound effects volume
             * Turn on/off character voices
             * Adjust character voices volume
    
       The Bottom Right Box:
             * Shows script version (download a patch from the game's
               official site to update the script to fix its minor
               typos if you want -- it's not really necessary)
             * User Registration Button (ユーザ登録ボタン) -- leads
               you to a website where you can fill out a user survey
               to provide the game's developers with feedback.
    
       The Bottom Left Box (voice controls): 
              * If you want to turn a certain character's voice
                off, check the little box next to their name (the
                box will turn green instead of yellow). All
                characters that you select will have their voice
                turned off, so it's useful if you like hearing
                voices but happen to hate a specific character's
                voice. 
    
    [Extra]
    
          CG Library --> You can view any CG images you have
                         unlocked/previously seen in the main
                         game here. You can view background
                         images, too. There are 143 CGs to unlock.
    
          Recollection Library --> You can re-watch certain scenes
                          that you have already seen in the main
                          game. Given the game's adult genre, they
                          are ALL sex scenes. There are 10 of these
                          adult scenes in the game to unlock.
    
          Media Library --> Lets you listen to the game's beautiful
                          music. You can also listen to the vocal
                          theme song(s) and watch a few movies (the
                          intro and trailers). There are 30
                          background music tracks, 2 vocal songs,
                          and 3 movies. 
    
    [In-Game Controls]
    
       * Enter/left click : proceeds to the next message
       * Space bar : hides the message box (so you can see the
                     in-game images clearly)
       * A : lets the text scroll by at a read-able pace
              without forcing you to press anything to pull
              up the next message. Good for hands-free playing.
       * Shift : Activates text skipping. Hold down the shift
                 key to quickly zoom through text you have seen
                 before (perhaps in a previous playthrough).
                 The game remembers what text/scenes you have
                 and have not seen before.
       * Ctrl+B : Sends you back to the last decision box reached.
                  So if you screw up and pick a wrong answer, you
                  can easily go back to the last decision point
                  and change your answer.
       * B / scroll up (on wheel mouse) : Views the text log. You
                    can go back and read previously-written
                    text if you accidentally missed it. Click
                    the little red speaker icon next to spoken
                    text to hear the character repeat it out loud.
       * S : Save. Takes you to a page where you can pick a
             box to save your game in.
       * L : Load. Takes you to a page where you can load a
             previously saved game.
       * F : Fullscreen mode. Lets you change between playing in
             fullscreen mode or window mode.
       * C : Config. Takes you to the config menu.
       * T : Return to the Title screen.
       * ESC : Closes/quits the game.     
       * Right click : brings up the options menu to remind you
                       of these controls or let you select them
                       by clicking instead of hotkey. If you can't
                       read the menu, the options are the same
                       as listed above (same order, too). The top
                       option (where it says "NONE" in English)
                       closes the menu and takes you back to the
                       game.

                                PART V
                 ===================================
               ||     Walkthrough - Rai's Route     ||
                 ===================================
    
       The following walkthrough sections will tell you (in order)
    what decisions to make to get the desired ending (as well as
    all CGs on the desired route). The game is very linear, so
    you won't have to do a lot of sidetracking if you want to get
    a bad ending on purpose (to collect CGs or see scenes).
    I've provided the decision you need to select to go in the
    right direction, followed by a rough translation of the choice.
    
       Save often so you can get the bad endings and complete
    your CG collection! Selections to trigger a bad ending 
    (in other words, a depressing "game over") will
    be marked with !!!BAD END!!!, to make it nice and obvious.
    I'll list the correct/good end option first, then the bad
    end option right below. 
    
    * 生贄の様子を窺う 
     (go check on the sacrifice cat)
    * ヘビが締め上げてくる加虐の心
     (heart painfully strangled by the snake)
    * 這い回るヘビの皮膚のなまめかしさ
      (captivated by the slithering snake's skin)
    * 身も凍る蛇の皮膚の冷たさ
      (the snake's skin is cold enough to even freeze the body)
    * ヘビが体に巻きつく息苦しさ
      (the snake painfully suffocating the body)
    
    ------NOTE: decisions made up to this-----
    -------point don't really affect the------
    ---------ending or help obtain CGs--------
    
    * 思わず見入る
      (unintentionally gaze at)
    * おまえはどうするんだ
      (what are you going to do?)
    * ひどく哀しくなる
      (get very sad)
    * じゃあ、決まりだな
      (then it's settled)
    * 奇妙な喜びの感覚が強い
      (the strangely happy sensation is strong)
    * いい加減にしろ
      (give me a break!)
    * とりあえず話を聞く
      (listen to the story first)
    * ライの気配を感じた
      (sensed Rai's presence)
    * 禁欲を
      (abstinence)
    * 罪悪を
      (sin)
    * 祈りを
      (prayer)
    * 篝火を
      (bonfire)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> select 業火を (hell fire) for Razel's ending]
    * 買う
      (buy)
    * 我慢する
      (control yourself/be patient)
    * 止めるだろう
      (we should stop)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> 逃げ出すだろう (we should run away)]
    * 差し出された手をはねのける
      (push aside the outstretched hand)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> 差し出された手を取る (take the outstretched hand)
                       this will get you Froud's ending]
    * 声に耳を傾ける --> GOOD END for Rai's path
      (listen to the voice)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> 声を無視する (ignore the voice) for Rai's bad ending]
    
    Rai path notes: Though almost all of Rai's CGs are obtained through
    finishing Rai's path with his good end, the Razel end, Froud
    end, and Rai's bad end also have CGs. Each bad ending requires
    only one option to trigger (and is triggered immediately),
    so the other CGs are easy to get. 
    
     +------------------------------------------------------------+  
    
                               PART VI
                 ===================================
               ||    Walkthrough - Asato's Route    ||
                 ===================================
    
      Here's Asato's walkthrough! The first part is similar to Rai's
    route. As before, I've marked the alternate options that lead
    to bad endings.
    
    
    * 生贄の様子を窺う 
     (go check on the sacrifice cat)
    * ヘビが締め上げてくる加虐の心
     (heart painfully strangled by the snake)
    * 這い回るヘビの皮膚のなまめかしさ
      (captivated by the slithering snake's skin)
    * 身も凍る蛇の皮膚の冷たさ
      (the snake's skin is cold enough to even freeze the body)
    * ヘビが体に巻きつく息苦しさ
      (the snake painfully suffocating the body)
    
    ------NOTE: decisions made up to this-----
    -------point don't really affect the------
    ---------ending or help obtain CGs--------
    
    * 思わず見入る
      (unintentionally gaze at)
    * おまえはどうするんだ
      (what are you going to do?)
    * ひどく哀しくなる
      (get very sad)
    * じゃあ、決まりだな
      (then it's settled)
    * 奇妙な喜びの感覚が強い
      (the strangely happy sensation is strong)
    * いい加減にしろ
      (give me a break!)
    * とりあえず話を聞く
      (listen to the story first)
    * アサトの気配を感じた
      (sensed Asato's presence)
    * 禁欲を
      (abstinence)
    * 罪悪を
      (sin)
    * 祈りを
      (prayer)
    * 篝火を
      (bonfire)
      [!!!BAD END!!! --> select 業火を (hell fire) for Razel's ending]
    * 後を追う
      (chase after)
    * それでも諦めない --> GOOD END for Asato's path
      (even so I won't give up)
      [!!!BAD END!!! --> choose もう無理だ (it's no use) for Asato's bad ending]
    
    Asato path notes: His path is easy and straightforward with only
    two bad endings, so it shouldn't be any trouble to get all of his CGs.
    His bad ending comes with a CG.

                               PART VII
                 ===================================
               ||    Walkthrough - Bardo's Route    ||
                 ===================================
    
    * 生贄の様子を窺う 
     (go check on the sacrifice cat)
    * ヘビが締め上げてくる加虐の心
     (heart painfully strangled by the snake)
    * 這い回るヘビの皮膚のなまめかしさ
      (captivated by the slithering snake's skin)
    * 身も凍る蛇の皮膚の冷たさ
      (the snake's skin is cold enough to even freeze the body)
    * ヘビが体に巻きつく息苦しさ
      (the snake painfully suffocating the body)
    
    ------NOTE: decisions made up to this-----
    -------point don't really affect the------
    ---------ending or help obtain CGs--------
    
    * 思わず見入る
      (unintentionally gaze at)
    * おまえはどうするんだ
      (what are you going to do?)
    * ひどく哀しくなる
      (get very sad)
    * じゃあ、決まりだな
      (then it's settled)
    * 奇妙な喜びの感覚が強い
      (the strangely happy sensation is strong)
    * いい加減にしろ
      (give me a break!)
    * とりあえず話を聞く
      (listen to the story first)
    * ライの気配を感じた
      (sensed Rai's presence)
    * 禁欲を
      (abstinence)
    * 罪悪を
      (sin)
    * 祈りを
      (prayer)
    * 篝火を
      (bonfire)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> select 業火を (hell fire) for Razel's ending]
    * バルドの顔を見る
      (look at Bardo's face)
    * やはりバルドが気になる
      (Bardo is on my mind after all)
    * 絵を懐にしまいこむ
      (put the picture away in your pocket)
    * 目を開ける
      (open your eyes)
    * ヴェルグを信じない
      (don't believe Verg)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> select ヴェルグを信じる (believe Verg) for Verg's ending
    * それでもやっぱり嫌だ -- leads to Bardo's good ending
      (even so, I don't want to)
     [!!!BAD END!!! --> select その方がいいはずだ (that would be for the best)
                        for Bardo's bad ending)]
    
    Bardo's Route note: This route branches off of Rai's route, so
    the first part is the same as Rai's until you are given the option
    to look at Bardo. Different sources have suggested different
    recommendations for a lot of the decisions, since most of them
    don't affect the ending -- the only decisions that really matter
    are the ones after "look at Bardo's face". I played Bardo's route
    after loading my Rai save file near that decision point, so
    everything before that doesn't really matter. 
    
    Also note that one of the CGs you get during Bardo's route
    cannot be viewed in the Extras gallery. Looks like they forgot
    to add it there.

                               PART VIII
                 ===================================
               ||            Voice Actors           ||
                 ===================================
    
      The voice actors are the people who bring the game's
    characters to life. Even though this is a text adventure game
    that most English-speaking gamers have never heard of (and
    would likely never, ever want to play, thanks to its adult
    genre), some of the cast members play characters in other
    games that are far more popular. A lot of the voice actors in the
    game use a fake name, so I've provided both their fake name
    and their real name, if needed. 
    I've also added any other famous video game roles that
    that actor has played (if available) to maybe make you a bit
    more familiar with the character's voice.

      This section is (obviously) for lyrics to songs found in
    the game and/or on its soundtracks. The OST is amazing 
    (especially for this kind of genre).

    Scelus natum est, somnium mihi orat.
    Chaos natum est, tremit imprecata feles.
    Aenigma natum est, silva me invitat.
    Error natus est. Quo continet via?
    
    Quis sum ego? Cogito fatum.
    Peto vento. Sed ventus nescit, non respondit.
    Meos oculos credo, vado.
    
    Hora ridet, teget et fugit.
    Voco, clamo, relinquor tenebris.
    Vive, vive, ne hesitas, curre.
    Per me, miseria est ergo lamento ego.
    Lamento ego.
    
    Rixa natus est. "...berebescu bazagra"
    "Praefiscine" Bellum inferre possum? Vah!
    Quis es tu? Ai. Secreta scis.
    Peto lacui. Sed o lacus nescit, non respondit.
    Te credere oh convado.
    
    Mors tacite venit, subridet, eripit.
    Animus clamat, illustrem solem vult.
    Neniam o canta ne vetere, oiei.
    Per me, miseria est ergo lamentas tu a.
    Lamentas Vae!
    
    Hora ridet, teget et fugit.
    Voco, clamo, relinquor tenebris.
    Vive, vive, ne hesitas, curre.
    Per me, miseria est ergo lamento ego.
    
    Lamento ego. Lamento ego.

    Dicam rem gravem, nunc: est celata
    sed tempus eam possit perdere et violare.
    
    In calamitate, morte, fama, in maledictio, erat ibi hic.
    In misericorde, bello, tenebris, ut ipsus malus stabat hic.
    In blasphemia, impietate, in terribli forma est hic.
    In clamore, vanitate: Estne vera forma, non vera? Non vera?
    
    Oculos tuos aperite occulusos, ecce!
    Rubem florem in canam terram tulit.
    Spes, ea spes, sola.
    
    Memoriam antiquam et veritatem te donam.
    Veritas invisiblis est, sed manet, manet in perpetua.
    
    Diem pacis, risum, placidem... Vitam, fructum, felicem...
    Bonitatem, ordinem...Consensum, aequum, lucem...
    Omnis eos petunt, ergo hujus dolebat vulnus.
    Quiete, sed certe. Vultne amorem, vel non vult? Vel non vult? O!
    
    Trans finem temporis, cor mei, vola.
    In terram hic donat spiritum, solus ego, solus ego id scio.
    
    
    In maledictio, erat ibi hic. Ut ipsus malus stabat hic.

    Oculos tuos aperite occulusos, ecce!

    The sun, the moon, the stars, the twilight,
    The wind, a breath of life in our heart so soft
    Can life be so beautiful now? Peace is in the air
    
    So why oh why am I so much in despair?
    The light won't reach my heart and I'm torn apart
    I don't know if I could smile anymore
    
    Won't you please tell me what was lost inside of me that day?
    I cry out in dark dismay
    I'm covering the tears with rain, red memories remain
    
    You're the key that stops the rain, your vision still the same
    but deep inside I know
    Without you I'm left alone in a cage called life
    You're the one that stops the pain, your love is in my veins
    Forever you will live inside my temple of soul
    
    The smile the wound the sand the heat inside
    Wind blows life within our heart so slow
    Yes nothing to be afraid of now peace is in the air
    
    But why do I feel the world is so unfair
    Your touch is lost, oblivion darkness and
    I can not stand the solitaire
    
    Tell me why I was left instead of you please talk to me
    Can I stand up when it rains?
    Tears penetrate my heart with pain, red memories still stay
    
    You're the key that stops the rain, your vision still the same
    but deep inside I know
    Without you I'm left alone in a cage called life
    You're the one that stops the pain, your love is in my veins
    Forever you will live inside my temple of soul
    
    You're the key that stops the rain, your vision still the same
    but deep inside I know
    Without you I'm left alone in a cage called life
    You're the one that stops the pain, your love is in my veins
    Forever you will live inside my temple of soul

    Song Name: When the End
    Vocals: Itou Kanako, Watanabe Kazuhiro
    
    So near, but so far away you'll forever be
    locked within my heart, presence in the air the melody
    
    So far but so close we stay we shall never be
    lost within our hearts
    the phantom star, we both will see
    
    But when the end comes will it take it all away?
    sweeping our memories, erasing time that we so much shared
    when the end comes everything fade away
    don't let it come undone within our hearts let it stay
    even when..
    
    In darkness we seek for light though it may never be
    someday we might find the sky we long so much to see
    
    Hopeless, we still can believe
    tomorrow will find its way
    to the key of life the flame withing us we believe
    
    But when the end comes will it take it all away?
    sweeping our memories, erasing time that we so much shared
    when the end comes everything fade away
    don't let it come undone within our hearts let it stay
    even when..
    
    Reach out, out towards the distant night
    engrave the seed of life in our hearts
    so deep that we dream of it
    
    Fear not, the future awaits us
    even if fate shall take our soul
    we two shall unite as one
    
    But when the end comes
    hold you in my arms and I will take all of your pain away
    hold on our memories, rebuilding time that we so much will share
    the end comes
    we'll find each other bound by our soul only our pain can fade away
    don't let it come undone within our hearts let it stay
    even when..

                               PART X
                 ===================================
               ||                FAQ                ||
                 ===================================
    
     Q: What route order do you recommend playing the game in?
     A: I played Asato's route first, then Rai's, then Bardo's. I think
        that way is the best, because Rai and Bardo's routes compliment
        each other. 
    
     Q: Whose route did you like best?
     A: Bardo's. I saved the best fo last! All three are great, but Bardo's
        made me smile the most. Second favorite was Asato's, then Rai's.
    
     Q: Where can I get the patch and what does it do?
     A: There's a patch that fixes minor typos available on the
        Nitro+chiral official website (google it). It's not necessary
        to play the game, though.
    
     Q: What are the computer specs required to play?
     A: Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP, a computer with at least the processing
        power of a Pentium III 600MHz and at least 1.5GB of hard drive
        space. You also need to download DirectX 9.0 or higher.
    
     Q: Will this game work with Windows Vista?
     A: Yes, but you will have to download and apply a Vista patch from
        Nitro+chiral's official site first.
    
     Q: My game keeps crashing at (insert scene here)!
     A: Your save file might have gotten corrupted -- try going back to
        an older save file, load it, and text skip (shift key) your way
        back to where you were when it crashed. It will hopefully
        continue without crashing.
    
     Q: Is it possible for Konoe to end up alone?
     A: Nope. The game is so easy that Konoe will always have some sort
        of ending with someone. In fact, most of the decisions you
        make in the game don't matter at all -- some are just more
        amusing than others. You just have to make sure you choose
        the correct decision that sets you up on the route you want
        to take. These decisions are all really obvious, too, since
        they have the name of the character you want to go after in
        the decision box (such as the "look at Bardo's face" option)
    
     Q: I found another guide that suggests different decisions than
        you did to get (character name here)'s ending!
     A: Again, most of the decisions you make don't matter, so don't
        worry about it too much. 
    
     Q: Is this game available/playable anywhere in English?
     A: Nope. The game is 100% Japanese text. It's so long and complicated
        that an English version is unlikely. 
    
     Q: The art in the game is pretty. Who is the game's artist?
     A: Tatana Kana.
    
     Q: What do you get for beating the game?
     A: Clear the game with a good ending once to unlock the Extra
        and Linear Notes sections on the main menu. Ulock everything
        and all you get is a screen that says "congratulations".
    
     Q: One of Bardo's CGs isn't appearing in his gallery!
     A: Yup. During Bardo's route, there is one CG that
        appears during the story that cannot be viewed in the CG gallery
        under the Extras menu. Guess they forgot to add it (poor Bardo).
