****************************
*** Game structure <GST> ***
****************************
- The original version of Little Busters! consists of a common route,
6 character routes and a final route Refrain.
- The choices you'll make during common route will decide which character's
route the game will lead to.
- Completing a character's route will lock that route until Refrain is
completed (except Komari & Rin1).
- Rin's route is split into two parts, Rin1 and Rin2.
> Rin2'll become available after the other character routes and Rin1 are
completed.
 > Refrain will become available after Rin2 is completed.

************************************
*** Recommended play order <RPO> ***
************************************
- Komari -> Rin1 -> Kurugaya -> Haruka -> Muscle & Kud -> Mio -> Rin2
- While you don't have to follow this order exactly,
watch out for these permanently missable scenes:
 > Komari's route's scene with Kurugaya only occurs if Rin1 or Kurugaya's
   route isn't finished.
 > Haruka's bad end extra scene requires Kurugaya's route to be locked
   and Kud's route to not be locked.
 > The childhood friends have some extra scenes during the baseball match,
   but only if Rin1 isn't completed.

****************************************
*** How this walkthrough works <HOW> ***
****************************************

- You can consider everything that isn't listed or bolded as choices that are
up to you.

choices.
- Feel free to experiment!
- Explanations on marks:
 > (*)	Required choice to complete the character's route.
> (**)	Required choice that only appears if you met the criteria for another
route.
	No worries if it doesn't.
> (***)Required choice that will get locked after you've completed the
character's route
	Available again after Refrain.
 > (B)	Leads to a long bad end scene you might want to check, but make sure to
	save your game before!

accessories.
- Also, each time you complete a character's route,
Rin will start off with higher initial stats on the following playthroughs.
- On the first playthroughs, even the starting battles may be too hard for Rin
to handle.
There'll be plenty of time for revenge later!

RIN1, RIN2 & GAME PROGRESSION
- Rin's route is divided into two halves, Rin1 and Rin2. Rin1 can be done
whenever,
but isn't counted as an actual route and doesn't have credits.
- Rin2 can only be entered after Rin1 and the five other character routes are
done.
Clearing Rin2 will unlock Refrain, the final route.

KUD ROOMMATE CHOICE

EXTRA SCENES IN HARUKA'S ROUTE
- Haruka's route has numerous extra scenes if Futaki is chosen as Kud's
roommate on 5/18.
- You can choose Futaki by suggesting Rin, Komari or Kurugaya,
or by choosing "Keep searching" when Kud asks you again.
- There're also 2 different extra scenes in the bad end you can see by choosing
"Give up"
- If you aren't locked out of Kurugaya's route, you'll see a scene with her and
Futaki.
- Else, you can see a Kud and Futaki talking if you aren't locked out of Kud's
route.
- After Refrain is completed, the scene with Kurugaya and Futaki will
always be the one that'll be selected, making the scene with Kud and Futaki
inaccessible.
- One of the scenes that can only be seen when Futaki is Kud's roommate.
Could these two get along well?

HELPING OUT WITH CLUB ACTIVITIES
- There's a scene on 5/19 where Riki can help Haruka with replacing some
furniture.
If you've been helping Rin with her tasks, she and Riki will go assist Haruka
by default.
If you haven't, take these two choices:
5/19	Go out
5/19	Give her a hand

UNIQUE SPRITE IN BAD END
- The bad end scene which can be viewed by choosing "Heard it from Futaki-san"
has a sprite of Haruka that isn't seen anywhere else in the game.

REDEFINING MODERN ART
- Selecting "Don't go to the rooftop" on 5/17 results in a scene on 5/24 that
reveals Haruka's creative side!

KUD ROOMMATE CHOICE
- Haruka can be Kud's roommate too, but it's a good idea to pick Futaki while
doing Haruka's route so you can see all the extra scenes.

Komari or Kurugaya, or by choosing "Keep searching" later.
- Each roommate has a few scenes during common route and Kud's route.
- Suggest all the characters in the playthroughs to see few fun scenes with
their reactions of being asked!

gather up in an effort to let Riki see how the hearts of girls are conquered.
- Rin can't find the girls whose routes you have already completed, except for
Komari.
- Everyone's going to be available again once you've completed Refrain.
- Could any of the girls ever resist Kyousuke's charms?
- And are Kengo and Haruka a match made in heaven? It's time to find out!

KURUGAYA'S ROUTE: TRUE END
- After Refrain is completed, Kurugaya's route's true end and
a new CG can be seen by playing her route again.
- After clearing the true end once, you can choose between the normal and true
ending.

LEAVE IT TO ONEE-SAN
- If you've already seen all "Go see what they're talking about" scenes,
you can try checking how Kurugaya helps Mio on 5/21 if you don't stay with Mio
on 5/18.

POETRY TO RIVAL THAT OF SUTOKUIN'S
- Mio's route offers the Little Busters members a great chance to
put their creativity in poetry to test, with Riki choosing the members.
- Each member has several lines and the order they're chosen in matters too,
so check what kind of crazy poems you can get!
- Masterpieces covering all exciting kinds of subjects, like fierce red
bloomers,
await those who dare try.

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM SCIENCE
- The ever-calm Mio faces quite a challenge in trying to conquer the battle
rankings,
and her devoted parasol has woefully low offensive capabilities.
- Fortunately for her, completing her route unlocks some surreal friends and
their weaponry for her disposal for the following playthroughs.

KUD ROOMMATE CHOICE
- Mio can be Kud's roommate and the steps are listed in the walkthrough.
The other possible roommates don't have any effect on her route.

**************************** MASK THE SAITO <ET2> *************************
*** Harya hore umau- A fearsome challenger invades the battle rankings! ***
***************************************************************************
- Starting from your second playthrough, Riki's strength can be put to
test as Mask the Saito will be available in the battle rankings.
- To earn a chance to fight against this wicked foe, you'll have to
prove your worth in numerous battles.
- Should you manage to defeat Mask the Saito, you will gain tremendous power
which
will make the future battles a breeze, and there's also a new scene on 5/27 to
be seen.
- Saito can be a difficult opponent even if Riki's stats are high so good luck!

Conditions & Progress
 > You must have completed at least one character's route (Rin1 excluded).
 > Riki has to be Rank 1 when Kurugaya joins the team on 5/18.
 > Riki must advance to Rank 1 once more during or after 5/21.
 > Saito will join the battle rankings as soon as Riki's reached Rank 1 again.
 > Saito will advance in the rankings each time you wander and keep Riki Rank 1.
 > When Saito's Rank 2 or 3, he will challenge Riki when you choose to wander.

Prepare yourself
 > Riki's stats increase as you complete characters' routes.
 > Playing with Masato is a great way to get useful items for use or trade.
 > The stat-ups from participating in batting practice can help big time.

Accessory: "School Revolution" Watch
- The "School Revolution" Watch is probably the single most powerful accessory
against Mask the Saito, reducing all Saito's stats by 50.
- The "School Revolution" Watch will be available after Mask the Saito's first
battle
is finished and Saito advances higher in the battle rankings.
- The character who lost to Saito will have the "School Revolution" Watch.
- After that, when you choose to wander, you can trade for the item should you
meet
the character in question.
- The Status window is handy for keeping track of the other team members'
accessories.

*************************** UNKNOWN LIFEFORM <ET3> **************************
*** Students in danger! Mysterious lifeforms roaming the school hallways! ***
*****************************************************************************
- Kyousuke's influence reaches all-new heights as biomutated lifeforms begin to
follow in his wake, much to the detriment of the school staff.
- Who better to face these savage creatures than the only girl of the childhood
friends?
It's showtime for Rin!
- The mission starts on 5/18's evening when you choose "Watch calmly".
- Rin will fight the lifeform several times: once on 5/18, once on 5/19 and
twice on 5/20, the lifeform getting stronger each time.
- There's no real reward for defeating the lifeforms.

Quick facts & Progress
 > There are three different lifeforms to be defeated throughout the game.
 > When Rin wins the last battle on 5/20, the next lifeform will be unlocked.
 > The next lifeform can be found on the next playthrough, at the same event.
 > The first and second lifeforms can be defeated with even moderate stats.
 > The third lifeform is one of the strongest enemies in the game. Prepare!
 > The event will be over if Rin loses. Kengo or Masato will fight the lifeform.

Help Rin out
 > Rin's stats increase as you complete characters' routes.
 > The stat-ups from participating in batting practice are a must.
 > Each time you see Rin have an item you can replace, wander & trade with her.

Useful accessories
- You can trade Rin at least two accessories, three with luck or persistence.
- Here are some good ones you should keep an eye out for:
 > White Jacket - Masato
 > Wrist Weight - Masato
 > "Masterpiece Theater" Series DVD-BOX - Kyousuke
 > "School Revolution" Volume 4-10 - Kyousuke
- Example setup for Rin: 2x White Jacket and 1x "Masterpiece Theater" Series
DVD-BOX
