I've been doing test runs against Evil Face boss to see which items and equipment are best suited. I expected to be beaten to a pulp but somehow I managed to defeat him !!!
However, looking at the guides for Melvia flag I need to take Ceci out for a 3rd adventure. I haven't done this yet. Can the Melvia ending (and True ending) still work if I do this task after defeating Evil Face ?
Well I decided to try out and see if I get the Melvia ending (even after killing Evil Face first).
I immediately took Ceci out for the 3rd time expecting some cut-scenes as before. however, I was immediately throw into the fight with 3 Scarlets !!! Of course I was beaten to a pulp (since I had used most of my best items in the Evil Face boss fight).
So I tried again and prepared for the 3 Scarlets and defeated them the second time.
I slept through to the end of the game and waited for the ending.
I got the Melvia ending !!!!
So it seems that you can still trigger the ending, even if you defeat Evil Face before taking Ceci out for the 3rd time.
On this assumption I will continue the game with this. If I fail to get the True Ending I might try backtracking to before I killed Evil Face and do things in the original order.
