Sakura Taisen Tales: Mysterious Paris by the wonderful people of SEGA and 
RED Entertainment


I'm not trying to be fluent in Japanese. I'm just trying to learn and 
understand it more. Since I'm not perfect or Japanese I do not Guarantee a 
100 % accurate translation so I welcome any comments and suggestions that 
you feel would help improve this File. I'm doing translations for the fun of 
it, to hopefully improve my Japanese more, and to give you a better 
understanding on what's going on and what's being said during the scenarios 
I translate. Of course its also better to own the game(ESPECIALLY Sakura 
Taisen) and enjoy the experience while playing as well instead of just 
reading. I will most likely ask for help and run into problems while 
translating so Please feel free to send your comments or suggestions to 
Tenchiharasaki@yahoo.com.

In this game you get to play with two main characters. And just like Sakura 
Taisen 5:Episode 0 their names are already decided for you. The name's of 
the main characters are Set as Kojirou Akechi and Miki Akechi.

=============================
Stuff you should know:
=============================

--------------------------------------------------
What is LIPS?
--------------------------------------------------
LIPS stands for Live Interactive Player System and it's the way we've been 
interacting with characters and events in the games since the original Sakura Taisen. In 
this version of Sakura Taisen you are once again using this system as a way to gain trust 
and love points, There are also four new types of LIPS in this version of Sakura Taisen:

Regular LIPS: This is the usual timed LIPS you will be getting most of the entire game. 
During certain parts during a conversation/event a box will pop up with 2-3 choices for you 
to choose from and you have a limited amount of time to select one of them. Also letting 
time run out counts as a choice(Although its rarely the correct answer.).

Untimed LIPS: Like the Regular LIPS except with no time limit.

Analog LIPS: The Analog lips are encountered in situations where your line or action is 
already decided for you and you have to choose how much emotion you will put into your 
words or action based on the position of the line in the window with your controllers Analog 
stick. There is like one exception where positioning the line all the way to the bottom of the 
window will change your line.

Button LIPS: This type of LIPS (along with three others) is exclusive to this game. It's pretty 
simple too, You are to just rapidly press the circle button as fast as you can until the light in 
the window fills all the way to the top before the time runs out. 

Lever LIPS: Another exclusive LIPS style for this game. It's actually Similar to the button 
LIPS, You just have to wiggle the analog stick in circles as fast as you can until the light in 
the window fills up all the way to the top before the time runs out.

Shooting LIPS: Yet another exclusive LIPS for this game. This one requires more precise 
timing, and a good aim, its still pretty simple however. You simply have to just shoot all the 
targets on screen before the time runs out.

Precise<Just>LIPS: The final exclusive LIPS style for the game. For this one you have to 
have good eyes, and decent timing. You just have to make sure the line that's moving fast 
back and forth in the little small rectangle window stops in the red box. Thankfully the 
speed of the moving line isn't that drastic so even this LIPS style is simple.


---------------------------------------------------
How to earn points with the girls
---------------------------------------------------
During LIPS events with certain girls in the game, just choose the correct answer,do well 
on certain LIPS events, or Give items that the girls would like to them. The more points you 
earn with the girls the better the odds of winning the game with the girl of your choice.

However it is possible to lose points with the girls as well. It happens when you select an 
incorrect answer during a LIPS event, or when you give away an item they don't like.
 
You will know when your doing something right or something wrong in those cases 
depending on the sound of the chimes that play.

There are two types of Chimes that play:High(Which equals good) and low(Which equals 
bad), Short chimes(Which is decent.) will be marked as "+" or "-" and Long chimes(Which 
is better or worse depending on how you got a high or low chime.). long high chimes will 
be marked on this guide as "++", Short high chimes will be marked as "+". Low high 
Chimes will be marked as "--", and Low chimes will be marked as "-".  

Take note that not all LIPS will net you a point no matter which option you choose.


---------------------------------------------------
About the life bar
---------------------------------------------------
In this installment of Sakura Taisen, While playing as Koujiro Akechi, You will have a life 
bar displayed on the upper left of the screen that you have to keep an eye on. At some 
points during the course of the game, you will be in danger of having damage inflicted 
upon Koujiro, when that happens your life bar will decrease based on how much damage 
you took. 

If your damage accumulates to a certain point without being treated and it reaches zero, 
you will be greeted by the GAME OVER screen and a continue timer. To avoid that fate, 
you simply have to watch your life bar and when necessary, simply use a healing item or 
cake from your Item case by selecting a healing item and dragging it to your life bar and 
you will be able to re-fill it.

Of course, How much life is restored varies on what type of healing item you use.

---------------------------------------------------
Free roams
---------------------------------------------------
Free roams are handled differently then the previous Sakura Taisen games. There's no 
time limit, and there will be times when not every location will give you an event(or anything 
at all)when you visit them. There will be times when you visit a location that's just 
completely empty and un-eventful. 

However visiting those locations can also net you hidden Cat food if you click on the right 
areas of the screen for that location. When you are looking for cat food, should your cursor 
turn into a magnifying glass while you are searching, that means click on that area and you 
will find one hidden cat food. 

When you locate the cat food be sure to give them to Colette the flower girl and she will 
give you roses for each Can of Cat food you give her. You can then use the flowers you 
receive as gifts to the girl of your choice. 

---------------------------------------------------
About Honorific titles
---------------------------------------------------
-San:>As some of you guys may know(Especially if you watch a lot of Subbed Anime), this 
is the most common honorific you will hear. -San is the American equivalent to 
Mr.,miss,ms.,or Mrs. It can be used in any situation where politeness is required. To put it 
simply, This is THE honorific to use if you want to address others in a formal polite way.

-Sama:>This honorific is the more formal version of "-San",  It's used to confer great 
respect for those with much higher rank than themselves. Example:This would be used for 
a butler or slave(^_^;) to address his master. It can also be used in commercial and 
business settings to address and refer to customers.  If I were to translate this, it would be 
the American equivalent to "Lord-" or "Master-"

-Kun:>This Honorific can be used in three different ways. It can be used from girls as an 
informal and intimate honorific mostly used for males. It is also used by superiors in 
addressing inferiors, by males of roughly the same age and status in addressing each 
other, and in addressing male children. In a business settings young women may also be 
addressed as kun by older male superiors. Which is why Ohgami always addresses 
Sakura,Sumire,Orihime,etc with -kun.

-Dono:>This is a old honorific, like Samurai Era old(You will hear this honorific a lot if you 
check out Rurouni Kenshin.) Although it may not be used as much(If at all) in daily 
conversation,it's still used in some types of written business correspondence. It works the 
same as -Sama.

-Chan:>This is the informal, intimate, diminutive equivalent of san, used to refer to children 
and female family members,pets, close friends and lovers. Chan is also used for adults as 
a title of affection. It gives a sense of childish cuteness thus making It very babyish, which 
is why some people are less forgiving with being address with it than others.

-Senpai:>is used to refer to or address teachers, doctors, lawyers, politicians, or other 
authority figures. It is also used to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain 
level of mastery in an art form or some other skill. It's most often used In school settings, 
where underclassmen refer to their upperclassmen as "Senpai". This may be a bad 
example but: Say you're a new employee at your job, everyone there is your Senpai 
because most of the people at your job have more experience then you do. To put it 
simply, in the workplace, it's used when a newer employee addresses an employee who 
has seniority(I.e. more experience)in the company.

-Kohai:>Simply the opposite of Senpai. Used toward underclassmen in school or 
newcomers in the workplace.

{Miki}:Sorry, sorry. I'm finished now.
{Elsa}:Ah, I see some Jam on the tip of your lips!
{Miki}:Eh!? You're kidding...
{Elsa}:Gotcha, just joking, joking.

{Elsa}:Still, you're pretty enthusiastic so early in the morning. Did you eat something bad or 
something?
{Miki}:It's nothing like that. It's just that I...
{Elsa}:It's just what?
{Miki}:I Had a dream about my big brother for the first time in so long, so I feel something 
good's going to happen today.
{Elsa}:Ah, yes yes....That must be your talent huh?
{Miki}:Why are you so surprised?
{Elsa}:Now listen....Though you may have said sweet things about him a number of times, 
you can't marry your blood brother. Plus, you know if you keep going on like that, you're 
never going to get a boyfriend.
{Miki}:I don't want a boyfriend.
{Elsa}:Haah...What a thing for a girl your age to be saying.
{Miki}:Let's forgot about that, aren't we going to be late if we don't leave soon?
{Elsa}:You're right. Now now, shall we get ready to go to work at Chattes Noires?

== Analog LIPS Start ==

have someone you can relate to. I don't think I would have been able to live alone if it 
wasn't for Mell.
{Mell}:If that's how you feel then, why don't we switch who prepares dinner for this week?
{Ci}:Eeeh, That's a different issue.

but when angry she's scary...)

- Talk to Grand Mere -
{Grand Mere}:So getting straight to the point, How would you two like to perform in an 
opening act?
{Miki}:Eh!?

{Miki}:Please let us!
{Elsa}:Miki....
{Grand Mere}:My my, Aren't you high-spirited. 

== LIPS End ==

{Grand Mere}:An opening act is nothing to get all worked up over. It's a little bit more like 
what Mell and Ci does. Plus, It's not going to be right away....It's something that will happen 
in the next month, after we have you be trained diligently so you can rest easy.
{Elsa}:Wow...That sounds harsh.
{Grand Mere}:Did you say something, Elsa?
{Elsa}:N-, No...I'll train even if it kills us!
{Grand Mere}:Miki, you understand as well correct? Starting today, We're going to have 
you undergo training even if it kills you.
{Miki}:Okay, I'll do my best.
{Grand Mere}:That's all for this conversation. You may leave.
{Miki}:Yes, Thank you very much. If you'll Excuse us.

{Elsa}:All right! We're going to be a part of an opening performance! A clean graduation 
from a backup dancer don't you think?
{Miki}:I can't believe it. I can understand you, but me....
{Elsa}:日頃の行いってやつじゃない? Wow, Grand Mere is not only scary but she 
knows a good thing when she sees it. In addition, it's just as you said today Miki, today 
was going to be our lucky day.
{Miki}:Yup,we owe it to my Big brother.
{Elsa}:Ahhh well, let's just leave it at that shall we? Anyway, we've got to have a party. We 
have to celebrate today for such a special occasion.
{Miki}:Wouldn't that normally be.....AFTER we accomplish our goal?
{Elsa}:Don't worry about it. It's what we call Celebration anticipation.
{Miki}:Honestly....You just want to start an uproar don't you?
{Elsa}:Ah ha ha ha.....Did I expose myself? But tonight won't be horseplay, I've decided to 
go for a fancy restaurant.
{Miki}:A restaurant huh.....Now there's something we don't do everyday. 
{Elsa}:Well then it's decided! Tonight we meet in front of the Restaurant. Now then, I should 
head back to the dressing room. I'll see ya!
Elsa departs from the room.

~~ First floor seatings(一階客席) ~~ [Can be skipped]
{Dominik}:Yo, I heard the news. You've been selected to be in an Opening performance? 
That's pretty amazing for someone who's only been with us for three months.
{Miki}:Ah, yes...thank you very much.
{Dominik}:I got it! Since this is a rare occasion let's celebrate. On your next break how 
about I treat you to a movie?
{Miki}:Oh, Oh no.....I don't really want to....
{Dominik}:C'mon, C'mon. Or would you prefer dinner?
{Elsa}:Now now, Don't just go seducing her just because she's valuable. Can't you see 
she's uncomfortable? This girl's not really used to this kind of thing so you shouldn't be so 
pushy.
{Dominik}:Oh well now, her sidekick's here now, there's nothing left to do but withdraw 
obediently.
Dominik run's away.
{Elsa}:Miki you should really become a Japanese who knows how to say "No" when you're 
uncomfortable.
Elsa departs.

~~ Stage setting room (大道具部屋) ~~ 
{Erica}:Ah, Miki-chan! You've come at just the right time.
{Miki}:What's the matter?
{Erica}:The thing is Grand Mere asked me to do some cleaning. Lobelia was supposed to 
do it with me but I don't see her. I'm begging you Miki-chan. Won't you help me?
{Miki}:Sure, my pleasure.
{Erica}:Kyaah, Miki-chan I'm so grateful! C'mere!!
{Miki}:Eri-, Erica-san....You're hurting me, and you're heavy!
{Erica}:Ah, I'm sorry.
{Miki}:Well, where should we start?
{Erica}:Let's see....First let's start off with carrying this!
{Miki}:You mean that big barrel?
{Erica}:Right. It's quite heavy so please try to be careful. Now then, here we go.  Altogether!

== Precise LIPS Begin ==

[Success] Erica +

{Miki}:And there we go.
{Erica}:Whew....That should do it. Miki-chan you're quite the muscleman.

[Fail] Erica -

{Miki}:Kyaah!
{Erica}:Ouch! Awww, it crushed my finger.
{Miki}:So-, Sorry....
{Erica}:Stuff like this really is a man's job.....I'll ask someone else later.

== Precise LIPS End ==

{Miki}:We do we do next?
{Erica}:Let me think....Shall we untangle those tangled ropes over there? Miki-chan, you 
un-tangled those ropes and send them my way. Then, I shall roll them up.
{Miki}:Okay.
{Erica}:Now then, let's get cracking.....Haee yaah!
{Miki}:Erica-san!?
{Erica}:Hel-, Help me......Un-tangle me.

== Lever LIPS Begin ==

[Succeed] Erica +

{Miki}:Ar-, are you okay?
{Erica}:Whew....If it wasn't for you I would have been close to being called to heaven.

[Fail] Erica -
{Miki}:Aaah.....This rope is too....
{Erica}:Lord....Erica is coming to your side.....
{Miki}:Hang on! I'm cutting the rope now!
Miki barely cuts the rope.
{Erica}:Whew....I was well on my way to being called to Heaven. Since this rope is 
dangerous I'm throwing it away.....Eeh!
The rope flies in the opposite direction.

== Lever LIPS End ==

{Miki}:What's next?
{Erica}:I should be fine by myself right about now. All that's left is to carry these color 
lightbulbs.....Kyaah! Sto-, Stop them from falling!

== Shooting LIPS Begin ==

[Success](Perfect) Erica +

Miki avoids a Crisis.
{Miki}:(That was a miracle even for me....)
{Erica}:Amazing! Miki-chan, you're a genius!!

[Perfect Failure] Erica -
The lightbulds shatter into small pieces.
{Erica}:Aaaaah, I've done it again.  

[Minor Failure(Miss at least two of them)] Erica +

{Miki}:(This much just might be my limit....)
{Erica}:Miki-chan, you're pretty amazing. You're almost just like Coqulicot.

== Shooting LIPS End ==

- If you completed all three LIP tutorials without error - Erica ++
{Erica}:We've managed to finish this with no problems at all. This is all thanks to you 
Miki-chan. Truly, Thank you very much!
Erica leaves with a smile.

- If you've completely failed all three LIP tutorials - Erica --
{Erica}:It looks like I've cause more damage then I should have. I'll go apologize to Grand 
Mere.
Erica leaves with slumped shoulders. 

~~ Bar(バー)  ~~
{Lobelia}:Yo, is that you Miki?

{Lobelia}:What are you wandering around for?
{Miki}:That goes for you too....Erica-san was searching for you earlier.
{Lobelia}:Haah.....Like I would do something as irritating as clean up the Stage setting 
room.
