    2	- -  ABOUT THE GAME.
    
    
           Kaikan Phrase is a music simulation game, much like the Beat
    Mania series. It seems like Enix entered the music simulators gold
    rush (Enix already has the Bust-A-Move / Bust-A-Groove series that is
    quite popular) and has somewhat created a nice variant of this genre.
    The developer Produce! is already familiar with this genre of games:
    they developed the Paca Paca Passion series, which happens to be a
    music simulator too, and the gameplay are quite similar to that game.
           Kaikan Phrase is based on a manga/anime series with the same
    name that went on Japan a couple of years ago. I've never seen any
    episode of it, in fact I've never heard about this anime before I
    bought the game. Since the game is based on an anime series the game
    itself has a strong anime look. It has one of the most beautiful anime
    opening I've ever seen (the opening itself is a video MTV Japan style)
    and well-made characters designs. The major difference about this game
    and others Beat Mania clones is that Kaikan Phrase has a story mode.
           The story goes around a music band called Aucifer in their road
    to stardom. To accomplish their goal they have to sing in some places
    and you have to help them. If you like music simulators, j-pop music
    and, of course, anime, you'll like this game.
    
    
    
    3     - -   GAME OPTIONS AND CONTROLS.
    
    
    
           After the opening movie, there some game modes to choose, and
    is written in English, here's a brief run-in of the modes:
    
           SCENARIO  -  The main game mode. In this mode, it will be
    composed of "scenarios" that you will choose where the band goes to
    tour. More details on the HOW TO PLAY section.
    
           2 PLAYERS -  Basically, is a 2 players scenario mode.
    
           EXTRA   -   This mode allows playing a different style of game.
    More info on the EXTRA section.
    
           OPTIONS   -   Unfortunately, is not what you thinking. There is
    no way to change the config of the buttons or change the sound
    setting. The options only had a ranking mode and a secret file mode.
    
           Ranking - If you select the ranking, there are two choices:
                     score or record. On the score screen you could
                     see the game mode (scenario or 2 players),
                     total of points received on the 4 scenarios, and the
                     instruments used on each scenario. The record
                     screen shows each song, the best EX percent of
                     each character and the max EX of each character.
    
      Secret file -  The secret file gives you a sound test, a movie
                     test and a voice test. But first you have to earn
    them. More on the SECRETS section.
    
           SAVE/LOAD  -  Just save and load games. It has an auto save
    feature if you want it to save automatically for you everytime you
    played the game. Just a reminder, the game uses 1 block of your memory
    card and only works if the memory card is on the slot 1. When you boot
    up the game, before the opening movie, it will check if you have any
    Kaikan Phrase files on your memory card, if so, the game will load
    automatically the Kaikan Phrase file.
    
           About the controls, the circle button is the accept button on
    the menus and you can use the x, circle, L1, L2, R1 and R2 to play the
    game. There is no soft boot command once you select the basics games
    mode (scenario, 2 players and extra), only the powerful reset button
    or you can lose your game on purpose (my suggestion: use the reset
    button). And there is no pause feature or dual shock support, by the
    way.
    
    
    
    4     - -    HOW TO PLAY?
    
    
    
            The rules of the game are very simple: just press the button
    at the time and you are set.
    
       A  - - SCENARIO MODE - After you select the scenario mode at the
    main menu, you'll be asked to choose one of two scenarios for the band
    tour. After that a music selection screen will appear. When you choose
    a song, you have also to choose a character to play. Choose your
    character and the game will begin. So I will explain each one of your
    choices.
    
    1	- SCENARIO SELECTION
    
              The game has 4 stages, which is, 4 songs. On each stage there
    are 2 different scenarios that you can select and so, there will be 4
    times to choose the scenario. The game ends after 4 songs. Every time
    that you play the game you will have the same 2 choices of scenario.
    The scenario is just a story mode that illustrates the band playing in
    some places and a short anime cut-scene that will depend of the
    scenario chosen.
    
    2	- MUSIC SELECTION
    
              Selects the music that you are interacting with. (This screen
    is much like the Dance Dance Revolution music selection screen). On
    the lower-left side of the screen, you can see how many times you
    played that song. It will appear in the form of a musical string. But
    this number will be erased if you finish the game or, if the game is
    over.
            The difficulty of the song depends on the stage (it will
    getting harder on the last stages). So the same song can have 4
    different difficulties, and if you want to play a song in the maximum
    difficulty, you will have to play the song on the last (4) stage.
            There are 6 playable songs in this game. If is the first time
    you are playing the game, only Datenshi BLUE is available. The other
    songs are there, but you have to unlock them. See the SECRETS sections
    for details.
            The song list is as follows:
    
            Datenshi BLUE
            Silent Melody
            Sekai de ichiban kirei na mono
            C no binetsu
            PLASMAGIC
            Midnight Crow
    
    3	- CHARACTER SELECTION
    
              Selects the character that you are playing with. Here is the
    choice that makes this game shines. The basic idea is that you will
    pick a character and, since you are playing in a band, an instrument.
            In fact, members of the band have their own role in the music
    (guitars, vocals, bass and drums) and the game was developed with the
    idea that when you choose a character you can change the course of the
    song. The game does that in an ingenious way: The developers take the
    songs of the game and split all the instruments and recorded it
    separately, thus creating different "layers". When you play a song,
    the game fuses all "layers" (instruments and the vocal) and voila,
    this is the original song after all. But when you choose the Guitar,
    for example, the game put the guitar layer of the song and boost the
    sound for you don't be confused of what the guitar does in the music
    along the others instruments. When you choose to play as vocals, the
    game add an extra layer of piano, that doesn't exist on the original
    song.
            Of course, the game will change based on the character picked,
    so the game have 120 ways of playing the game (6 songs x 5 band
    members x 4 difficulties settings). All this in the scenario mode, the
    extra mode offers even more ways of playing.
    	 The characters are:
    
            SAKUYA - Vocals
            YUKI - Guitar 1
            ATSURO - Guitar 2
            TOWA  - Bass
            SANTA - Drums
    
            As the songs have different difficulties by itself, each
    character will have a unique difficulty based on the role of the
    character (instrument) on the song. The hardest characters to choose
    in every song are TOWA (bass) and Santa (drums), because they have a
    crucial participation on every song.
            All music simulators share the same concept: There is the
    "beats", and a "reader" of the beats. Music "beats" is the marks that
    you will have to press the button to score. And the music "reader" is
    a place that keeps as reference for you to know when press.  In the
    DDR/Pump it up, the "Beats" are the arrows that goes up in the screen,
    in BeatMania / Kaikan Phrase the beats is a kind of sticks like " - ".
    When the reader and the beats are in the same place, you will have to
    press the button to score.
            The great difference of Beat Mania and Kaikan is that the
    reader of this game is mobile, and the beats will keep still and so
    the reader that find the beats, not the opposite like Beat Mania.
    
    4	- THE GAME ITSELF
    
              A screen, much like the beat mania series, will appear. On
    each side of the screen, the music beats will appear. The reader will
    be going down the screen and every time the reader reaches the bottom,
    new beats will appear on the screen, and the reader will appear on the
    top of the screen. Fortunately, there is only a button to press. Each
    beat represent a string of the song, a different color of the beats
    represents different strings.
    
    
    1 Player                           2 player
    _____                              _____
    |   |                              |   |
    | - |                              | - |
    |   |                              |   |
    | - |                              | - |
    |___|                              |___|
    |   |                              |   |
    | - |                              | - |
    | - | ||                           | - | ||
    | - | ||                           | - | ||
    |___| ||                           |___| ||
    
            This is the basic layout of the screen that you will see, the
    first player field keeps on the left side of the screen, and the
    second player keeps on the right side of the screen. The reader is
    mobile and keep passing the screen going downwards, when the reader
    reaches the bottom of the screen, they appears on the top again, and
    keep doing that until the song is over.
            The screen has a divisor line on the middle of the screen. And
    when the reader passes on the middle of the screen, it will update the
    beats creating new ones. Keep hitting the beats on the correct time to
    score.
            There is a bar on the side of the player's field. That is the
    minimum score meter. When you score, the bar goes up. Each stage and
    character has a different bar combination. If you can't fill the bar
    until the song is over, the game is over. But is very simple to do
    that (I don't remember when, if ever, I can't fill the bar on this
    game), the EX rating is a more tricky condition to achieve. Read on.
    
    5	- SCORE
    
              The scoring and combo system is very similar as Dance Dance
    Revolution and Beat Mania. For you that are not familiarized for this
    kind of game, the game tells you if you imput the command on the exact
    time frame. In this game, there is a symbol that tells you if you hit
    the key in the proper time. This is the description of the symbols
    that appears in the screen.
    
            EX - The better rating of Kaikan Phrase. When you score an EX,
    is that you hit on the exact time frame and the song will be kept
    intact. Of course, the EX rating is more beneficial for the music
    counter that the others rating. When you successfully can achieve 2 or
    more consecutive EX, the number of the consecutive EX will be shown on
    the screen. This is known as combo. Every other rating will stop the
    combo.
    
            GREAT - Better than nothing. Nuff said.
            HIT
    
            BAD - The worst rating. That shows that you missed totally the
    timing of the command imput and so you use the string on the different
    time frame and makes the song somewhat awkward. This rating takes of
    the music counter.
    
    6	- RESULTS
    
              When a music is over, a screen will show your results: He
    shows your EX percentage, that is, the percentage of EX on all your
    grades (EX, great, hit and bad). You will gain a grade ranging from S
    to F depending of your performance, the grade that you receive
    affects, is if you clear or not a stage. It's hard to tell you when
    you clear a stage or not based only on the grade. On some stages a C
    grade makes you clear a stage, on some stages D clears a stage.
    
            + 90% EX - Rank S
            75-90% EX - Rank A
            65-75% EX - Rank B
            50-65% EX - Rank C
            30-50% EX - Rank D
            Less than 30% - Rank F
    
            After that, if you clear the stage, the selected member of
    Aucifer will say something, and so you will receive the EX point to
    unlock the NEW RELEASE (see the secret section for further
    information).
    
    
            If you failed a stage, you can try again. Also, you can choose
    another scenario to play the song.
    
    
       B - - 2 player mode
    
            The 2-player mode works like a cooperative play of the
    scenario mode. Only the songs available on the scenario mode are
    selectable on the 2-player mode.
            Only the first player can choose a character. When the 1
    player chooses a character, a supporter (the second player) is
    automatically selected. The first player also chooses the song. This
    is the list of the partner's combination available.
    
           1 player / Supporter
            Sakuya     Sakuya
            Yuki       Atsuro
            Atsuro     Yuki
            TOWA       Santa
            Santa      TOWA
    
            When you play the 2 players mode, the player and the supporter
    shares the same music counter, and the results are based on the
    performance of the 2 players. If one of the players is a real bad
    player, can get a stage failed and bog down the good player.
    
    
      C - - Extra mode.
    
            The extra mode is an alternate way to play the same game. This
    mode clones the Dance Dance Revolution settings, when the scenario
    mode looks like the Beat Mania series.
            The objective of the Extra mode is very simple, the band is
    making a concert and you must satisfy your fans. But the fans are very
    hard to please (to say the least ^_^) and every single mistake you
    made on the game, thus on the song, one fan will leave the concert. If
    every fan leaves the show the game is over.....Cool, huh? But.....this
    fans really loves your band, and so if you play the song correctly,
    say 5-6 combo, one fan will be back for more J-Pop action......
            If is the first time you are playing the game, nothing on the
    extra mode will be avaliable. You will have to play at least once on
    the scenario mode, and get some NEW RELEASE (more on the secrets
    section of the FAQ) to unlock characters and songs on the extra mode.
    To start playing the extra mode, there will be a screen called a Stage
    Select and there will be 2 options of stages to choose, the 2 stages
    shares all the game basics, but the design of the stage is different
    one from another.
    
    
    
    5   - -  SCENARIO DESCRIPTIONS (scenario mode only)
    
    	
            Each time you begin a game on the scenario mode, Sakuya, the
    vocalist will give you 2 choices of where to tour. There are 8
    different locations that you can go in the game. If a scenario is
    chosen, an anime cut-scene will appear and a dialog will occur between
    some of the components and 2 girls (Yuka on the first 2 scenarios and
    Aine on the last 2). After you cleared a stage another video will be
    shown, showing the response to your performance. Just a reminder, the
    order that you pick a scenario does not change the ending.
            The order of the scenarios is as follows:
    
        First Stage     Second Stage      Third stage     Stage four
    
       Oh! Desire       TV presentation     UK Debut ---- Wild tour
       High Go House    Domuko Sat         Asia Tour -- JAPAN Concert
    
            The only place that you can't choose a scenario is when you
    are passing from the third stage to the fourth stage. If you choose UK
    Debut, you will automatically go to Wild Tour, and if you choose Asia
    tour you will get JAPAN concert. But if you failed the stage 4, you
    can change the scenario.
    
            FIRST STAGE

            Scenario 7 - Sakuya says that everything is going to be all
    right and that Aucifer will be the number one, Aine pray that
    everything gonna be fine.
    
            Scenario 8 - Same as scenario 1, but the dialog is different.
    
            Failed (7 and 8) -  A rival band makes fun of Aucifer, and the
    members just keep watching.
    
            Scenario 7 and 8 Clear - Aine tells the band that they come a
    long way and to don't give up. So Atsuro celebrates.
    
            ENJOY THE ENDING!!!!

           B) HIDDEN ART
    
           Any game that is anime-based must have some hidden art of the
    characters on the game....so this is where the art is...
    
           1 - EX art (scenario mode only)
    
          To see that you must make a combo with a character, when you
    make the EX combo, you will see a portrait of a character, some of
    them are very interesting. There are 8 portraits per character. Each
    song has a different sequence of the portraits, but this list is based
    on Datenshi BLUE and Silent Melody.
    
          Sakuya - 5 EX -  Normal face / Just looking at you....
                  10 EX -  Angry face / Happy face
                  15 EX -  Sakuya is singing / Somewhat sad face
                  20 EX -  Wild face  /  He is shouting
                  25 EX -  Somewhat sad face / Angry face
                  30 EX -  Secret smile / Secret Smile
    
          Yuki -   5 EX -  Serious face / Normal Yuki
                  10 EX -  Angry face / Charming smile
                  15 EX -  Yuki playing his guitar / Distant look
                  20 EX -  Shouting / Angry 2
                  25 EX -  Distant Look / Yuki is happy
                  30 EX -  Playing his guitar 2 /  Serious face
    
        Atsuro -   5 EX -  Serious Face / Normal
                  10 EX -  Angry face /  Atsuro looks happy
                  15 EX -  Atsuro playing his guitar / Normal 2
                  20 EX -  Shouting / Atsuro is about to break something
                  25 EX -  Depressed face / Screaming
                  30 EX -  Normal face / Happy face
    
          TOWA -   5 EX -  TOWA playing / Sad face
                  10 EX -  Angry face / Mysterious face
                  15 EX -  Sad face / Hate face
                  20 EX -  Playing 2 / Looking tired
                  25 EX -  Depressed look / Normal face
                  30 EX -  Intense look / TOWA takes a breath
    
          Santa -  5 EX -  Santa is playing / Normal face
                  10 EX -  Normal face / Hate face
                  15 EX -  Santa shouts / Confused face
                  20 EX -  Normal face / Santa playing 2
                  25 EX -  Calm face / Mysterious face
                  30 EX -  Sad face / Really happy
    
          2 - Extra mode art
    
          The extra mode art is a collection of art that appears on the
    projection screen on the extra mode. To see the art, you must make
    combos as the same to see the EX art, but the number of the combos to
    see something is much smaller than the EX art, mainly because the
    combo on the extra mode is somewhat hard to do (+ 15 combo).
          An art is RARE because you must do a very high combo and even
    you doing that, not always will show on the screen. Every song has at
    least 3 RARE portraits, 2 normal and an extended photo.

           Also there are illustrations of the characters on the game over
    screen. There is 3 different game over screens: One if you lose with
    Sakuya (a portrait of a sad Sakuya), if you lose with either Yuki or
    Atsuro (a portrait with both), and if you lost with Santa or TOWA (a
    really Yaoi scene...just kidding, you perverts) ^_^.
    
    
    7     - - THE BAND.
    
    
           The comment of the band is based primarily on the movie events,
    character art, event voices and the ending movie and some of my
    personal opinion. Keep in mind that I never seen a chapter of the
    anime series or read the manga, so this can be pretty inaccurate and
    vague.
    
    SAKUYA - Vocals
    
           Sakuya is the vocalist of the Aucifer band. He has a "cool"
    personality (that means he always has a bored face, even in happy
    events). Add a distant look and a quiet voice and he is the perfect
    pop star. The girls love him and he has presence on stage. Doesn't
    care about success or the band itself, but it seems that he has real
    issues.
    
    YUKI -  Guitar 1
    
           Yuki is the guitar player and he is the one with guitar solos.
    Quiet, but charming, he devoted heart and soul to the band.
    
    ATSURO - Guitar 2
    
           Atsuro is probably my favorite character, because he looks an
    average guy. He is happy when it means to be happy; he is sad on sad
    events and so escapes of the stereotypes of the other characters. On
    the other side he plays fairly well.
    
    TOWA  - Bass
    
           Unfortunately, the game does not mention Towa much on the
    events movies. On the ending movie, he (?) has a part that he is
    surfing. The only font of information of Towa is the comments post-
    music, but I think that he keeps a low profile and a bad taste for
    clothing. But he plays flawless with a bass. TOWA is your average
    bishounen. I really want to see what he looks like in the manga.
    
    SANTA - Drums
    
            Santa has a "loud" personality, he always has a smile on his
    face, and he is funny and spontaneous. Loves eating and play with his
    friends. But sometimes he is temperamental and hot-blooded. He is (by
    far) the more talkative member of the band.
    
    
    
    8    -  THE SONGS AND LYRICS
    
    
          There are 7 songs in this game, 6 of it you can play in the game
    itself and 1 is the music of the ending credits. I will give some
    comments of the songs, the difficult level of them and a personal
    review of the real band.

           DATENSHI BLUE
    
           Written by : Yukinojo mori
           Arranged by : Takuya
           Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji
    
           Datenshi Blue is the intro song of the game and the only one
    that. As far as J-rock goes, this is a fairly good song and is quite
    fast. For first time Kaikan Phrase players, is kinda hard to learn the
    rules for this song alone because Blue is a fast song, but you making
    you play that song until you're unlock Silent Melody.  This is the
    music of the opening movie.

           SILENT MELODY
    
           Written by : Yukinojo mori
           Arranged by : Takuya
           Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji
    
           Silent Melody is my favorite (hands down) song of the game,
    this music has a slow pace that is wonderful to play with and is a
    beautiful love song, with good lyrics and arrange that sounds way
    better than any of the others songs. The chorus is catching and you be
    singing alone in no time. For me, this is the song that makes me play
    this game until today, and when I found the trick to listen this song
    unplugged (see the secrets sections for details) I keep playing even
    more. Listening to this song I felt that was the right time to write a
    FAQ about this game.

           This is a fairly good song, but nothing special. It's a matter
    of taste, really.

           Other slow song, but not as catching as Silent Melody. This is
    the worst song on this game (on my modest opinion, by the way). They
    could change this song with the credits song that is better than
    this.....Oh, well. You can't always have everything.

           Very good song. This is one of the most difficult songs on the
    game. It actually seems that it will never ends, more frequent if you
    are playing with the bass or the drums.

           This is the last song that you can unlock, it's somewhat an
    easy and pleasant song. And a good one, but quite long. If you want to
    play with Santa but restrained because every song is freaking hard
    with him, it's the best song to get into the drums.

           This is the song that appears in the credit movie. It's not the
    full version of the song. But for me is the second best song in the
    game.

           F) The manga and the anime series
    
           The manga was originally created by Mayu Shinjo. Mayu Shinjo
    also created the excellent Akuma no Eros (Virgin crisis). Kaikan
    Phrase already ended in Japan, it has 17 volumes plus one special
    volume and was published through Flower Comics, perhaps the most know
    publisher of Shoujo and Yaoi manga in Japan. All Yuu Watase work was
    also published through Flower comics (Fushigi Yuugi, Ayashi no Ceres).
           The anime series was produced by Half HP Studios/TV Tokyo and
    it have 44 chapters, which aired in Japan from April 1999 to March
    2000. There are no OVA's of Kaikan Phrase, but many OST CD's, Drama
    CD's and illustration books were made.
           The manga was well received in Japan but the anime made just a
    moderated run. The anime and the manga have the same characters and
    some of the songs, but the similarities end there.
           SICK DETAIL - If you watch the ending, without knowing the
    anime like me, you may think that Aine and Yuka make a love triangle
    with Sakuya, which is DEFINETLY not the case.

       A ) Game Information.
    
           NAME : Kaikan Phrase: Datenshi Kourin (SLPM 86438)
           PUBLISHER : Enix
           DEVELOPER : Enix / Produce!
           RELEASE DATE : 2/24/2000
           PRICE : 5800 yen
    
       B ) Alternate arranges
    
           Well, this is not a real secret; think of it as a bug of the
    game. You can, with that, create alternate arranges of the songs. To
    create this alternate arrange, choose the 2 players mode then choose
    the music that you want to listen, and choose the Yuki/ Atsuro
    combination or the TOWA / Santa combination (the Sakuya / Sakuya
    combination will not work).
           After you choose the combination and the song, let the game
    play by itself. So you will listen the song, if you choose the Yuki
    /Atsuro combination, without the guitars, only with vocals, drums and
    bass. But the Santa / TOWA combination is really special, that makes
    the music only with vocals and guitar. If you like the song Silent
    Melody, this is a great mode. Just try it once, it can amaze you.

        E ) Closing comments
    
            I became very satisfied with how thing turned out with this
    FAQ. I begin to write it, like, 3 years ago, and I think that finally
    it's time to release it. Sometimes I keep wondering " NO, that FAQ is
    really bad, I should look at it one more time before releasing", but
    after 3 years, I must have more confidence in my decisions.
            Let's face it: the game isn't the best game in this world.
    Heck, isn't even the best CLONE of Beat Mania out there. But have a
    beautiful anime opening, and good J-Rock songs and Mayu Shinjo (I am a
    big fan of Akuma no Eros). Jeez, I actually have Doki Doki Pretty
    League, Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer and Sailor Moon Super S, which are 3
    of the worst and almost UNPLAYABLE games of the PS, only because of
    the anime opening. Oh well, I admit it. I, Kamui, have a certain
    tendency to buy games based of the "uniqueness" and............
             Well, hope that you'll enjoy it.
