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 1 -  Everyone is waiting for the recording test to
begin, and Santa is excited about it and talks with the others. So
there you are: The way for stardom.

        Scenario 2 -  Same as scenario 1, but the dialog are
different.

        Failed (both scenarios) - Yuka says "don't give up yet".

        Scenario 1 clear - Yuka says that Kaikan get a record
contract, Atsuro and Santa screams, and so she looks to Sakuya and he
does the normal "I don't give a damn" look.

        Scenario 2 clear - Yuka says that Aucifer managed to get a
record contract. So all celebrated but Sakuya, well, oh why bother...

        SECOND STAGE

Yuka is talking to them.

        Scenario 4 -  Same as scenario 1, but the dialog are

path and challenges make part of the band road to success. Atsuro
smiles.

        Scenario 4 clear - Yuka comments about the performance on the
TV show. Everyone looks confident.


        THIRD STAGE

        Scenario 5 - In a social party, Aine is talking to Yuki,
meanwhile Santa is eating a lot....^_^

        Scenario 6 - Same as scenario 5, but the dialog are different.

        Scenario 5 clear - Aine talks, Santa laughs.

        Scenario 6 clear - Aine talks about Aucifer going up the
charts, meanwhile all the band are playing the PLASMAGIC song, and so
TOWA gives a smile.


        FOURTH 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!!!!


6    - -  SECRETS


       A) UNLOCKABLE SECRETS

       Every time you clear a scenario on the scenario mode, you
accumulate points. When you accumulate a certain number of points, a
NEW RELEASE will be opened. Each new release is a secret that can be
either more music that you can play on the scenario mode or music and
characters to play on the extra mode. You can also unlock the entire
dialog and the anime videos of the game. For do it so, you must get a
stage clear with all characters on the extra mode.
       The secrets of the extra mode can be seen on the secret file on
the options menu.

       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

      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.

       SEKAI DE ICHIBAN KIREI NA MONO

       Written by : Yukinojo mori
       Arranged by : Takuya
       Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji

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

       Arranged by : Chisato
       Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji

       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.

       MIDNIGHT CROW

       Written by : Yukinojo mori
       Arranged by : Ippei
       Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji

       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.

       DAIKISHIMERU HOKA NI NANI GA DEKIRUDAROU?

       Written by : Yukinojo mori
       Arranged by : Ippei
       Composed by : Takeshi Tsuji

       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.

                  nemuru kimi no  madogoshi ni sora ga
                  yaseta tsuki o  asa yake ni tokasu

                  riyuu mo naku  toki ha nagare
                  kimi hitori o  otona ni suru yo

                  hareta shuumatsu ha  umi made aruite
                  arashi no yoru ni ha  BEDDO de jareatta ne

                  yume no kakera sae  sagasenai boku ga
                  kimi no tame ni ima  nani ga dekirundarou?
                  ...dakishimeru hoka ni


       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.


9  - -  EXTRA / SPECIAL INFO



   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.
