I just finished and platted the game, so I thought I'd write out a quick guide for the different routes and Shimanekko locations. I've paraphrased a lot of the answers, as I can't remember them exactly and I'm translating a Japanese guide. Let me know if anything isn't clear enough and I'll look up the actual answer. Please note that you only have so many replies at the beginning. You'll unlock the rest after finishing the game once.

So if a reply isn't available yet, then just select the closest one you can. There are many different combinations for the 5 different routes, it's just that these are definitely guaranteed to get the said route. After finishing the game once you can skip the chapters completely from the smartphone menu. You will need to reply chapter 8 everytime for every ending, but it's not too bad if you skip all the dialogue.

Crossing Paths Route
Go on a day trip / Do you like traveling?
Participate in school events / What events are popular in Shimane?
My ideal adult is one who dreams / Who is your ideal adult?
I think men and women can be friends / Do you think they can be friends?
Kindess / Tell me about your personality
People with complimentary personalities / Do you believe in fate/destiny?
I think I like you, Aya / I want to meet you

Cursed Letter Route
Reading / Do you like to read?
I want to explore ruins / Are there any spooky stories of Shimane?
I don't want to become an adult / Do you want to become an adult quickly?
Girls are too selfish / What do you think of me?
Nature / Do you believe in ghosts?
I like girls with black hair / Do you like black hair?
Now it's fun with my friends / Where do you go with your friends?

Government Conspiracy Route
Go for a walk / Do you believe in aliens?
I want to see a meteor shower / What are the stars in Shimane like?
(Answer doesn't matter for chapter 3)
Gender doesn't matter / Do you like aliens?
Fateful encounters / Have you had a fateful encounter?
Mysterious and beautifuk people / Are you interested in folklore?
Anxious/worried / Aya, do you have someone you like?

Himegamori Route
Walking around the shrine / Do you like folklore?
I think I'll study history / Tell me about the warriors of Shimane
I won't have ideals / What do you think of selfish adults
I like girls / What do you think of stoney men?
Ancestors / What do you do for fun?
Mysterious and beautiful people / Are you interested in history?
I'm focused on study / How do you study history?

Bond of Marrige Route
Go play / Do you like sports?
Like to take on different challenges / What challenges do you want to take on?
My ideal adult is one who dreams / Who is your ideal adult?
I think men and women can be friends / Do you think they can be friends?
Fateful encounters / Have you had a fateful encounter?
People with complimentry personalities / Do you believe in fate/destiny?
I think I like you, Aya / I want to meet you

Shimanekko Locations

Second time through chapter 9 of the Crossing Paths route, you'll run into Matsuda who wants your help finding Shimanekko. Everytime you find Shimanekko, you need to go back and report to Matsuda inside the Shimane Art Museum before moving onto the next location.

Kamiari-An - Inspect the menu outside
Vacant Lot - Leftmost house in a row
Matsue Station - Inspect the road
Kyomise Shopping Centre - Lamp post
Shiroyama Park Tourist Office - Vending machine
Matsue Oba High School - Field
Matsue Castle - Passage way
Usagi Theatre Company - Inside, inspect the window
Karakoro - Workshop desk
Shiroyama Park - Suomon Bridge

For the letter mania trophy, select any leftover replies you need to clear, skip the chapter and then save. You will get all the items from clearing the routes. Took me about 10-15hrs to do everything.
I need to pick this game up thanks :)

No problem, thanks for reading. :)

Just a slight amendment, I meant to say red post box for Shimanekko's Kyomise Shopping Centre location. Dunno why I remembered lamp post instead.

It's, "Are you interested in studying folklore". Like I said, I just quickly translated it from Japanese and didn't have the English answers on hand, so the closest option will be it. Just pick all the folklore and mystery options for Himegamori and you'll definitely get it.

Hi, how long do you think it takes to play through once without skipping dialogue? And how long to get the platinum without skipping unread dialogue? Definitely want to get this eventually, but if it's short enough, I can get it day 1 and squeeze it in before Steins Gate 0.
There is no need to be a jerk on forums.

I think my first playthrough clocked at around 8-9 hours.
Stop saying "excited" when talking about games. You're not a dev at E3.

I can't remember my times exactly, but I think it took me 8 hours for the first playthrough and I think around 13 hours to plat it. It varies depending on your reading speed and whatnot, but you should have it done within 15 hours.

"Anxious/worried / Aya, do you have someone you like?"

What's the "anxious/worried" answer?

I just checked and I'm sure it's, "I can't focus by myself". I think. The English and Japanese versions of that are quite different.
