VERSION 0.01:
  After losing an FAQ that I worked on for very long time in my
  last HD crash and other updates to my other FAQs, I will try to 
  update my stuffs in GameFAQs when I add stuffs to those FAQs. The 
  strategy and event list should be completed.

EDITOR'S NOTES
========================================================================
Before I played this game, I read a lot of bad reviews about this game
and had the idea that the balls-system is going to be a "bad boy". But, 
when I played this game, I thought that the game is not that bad and 
the ball-system is actually very simple. 

I admit I got a bad ending (I became my senpai's student, but fail to
get any girls) in my first play because I only talk to my target girl 
once a day, which is not the way to go... In additional to that, it 
took me 6 hours to complete that bad ending.

After I got my first ending which is Rumi-chan's ending and epilogue,
I had trouble getting Mio-chan's epilogue, even though I got Mio-chan's
ending. After several tries, I finally understand what my mistake was. 
It was VERY irritating because I can't skip the ending song to see 
whether I got the epilogue or not and the ending song is EXTREMELY long.

Once I get the hang of the roulette and requirements of the game, I 
finished the game within 3 hours each, except maybe Hina-chan, which
I believed took me 4 hours to complete her scenario and she is 
the devil of this game. And probably plus minus 1 hour to get
all the CG side events.

I thought, the story is quite sweet, but the system is a bit 
unrealistic, especially the timeline. Take for an example, the 
part-time job. You can earn up 6570 Yen (more than US$50) in Ginza 
Street for just 30 minutes of work. You are working as a Gigolo? 

In additional to that, I feel as though the story is written, after
the CG is drawn. That's why some of them are really weird, like the
event where Hina-chan sleep. *.*

One thing I really like about this game is that you can replay
the CG event again in the Album, which is kinda nice. It's so that
I do not need to keep the save games for those events.

My favourite character of the game is a fight between Mio-chan and
Rumi-chan. Mio-chan's epilogue is my favourite without a doubt and
that's my favourite CG in the game, as well.

Anyway, with this guide, I hope you can get through the game, easily.

STORY INTRODUCTION
========================================================================
One day, the protagonist decided to chase after the dream of
becoming a cameraman. To become the student of his famous
upperclassman (senpai) cameraman in his university, he headed 
towards an island in Okinawa area where his upperclassman 
cameraman lived. On the way to the island, the protagonist met 
his senpai luckily and was given a very hard assignment to
complete. If he complete the assignment, then he could become
his senpai's student.

That assignment is taking a picture of all SIX girls who he
met on the ship by chance. And for some reasons, all SIX girls
hate camera. But, there is nothing he can do about it because
if he doesn't take their photos, his road to become a cameraman
is closed.

With that, the protagonist met and parted with those girls
repeatedly at the island. And with each of them, conversations
are being spinned into stories.

========================================================================
CONVERSATIONAL SKILL
========================================================================
 BASIC INFO:
  - RED balls - Got idea (1 red ball==1 idea, 2 red balls==2 ideas, etc)
    YELLOW balls - Uncertain whether you got idea (can cause confusion)
    BLUE balls - No idea (can be ignored completely)
  - Target RED balls only and you can ignore YELLOW & BLUE balls.

 UNHAPPINESS AND TOO EMBARASSED
  - If the girl started to refuse to answer repeatedly, you should
    start checking if she is too embarassed (恥じらい) or too 
    unhappy (不満).
  - If she is too embarassed or too unhappy, use Improve-Situation
    Conversational Topics 『状況改善会話』 to confront her about it.
    Pretty stupid concept, IMO...

 SPEED:
  - Try to complete your triangle quickly because the girl's 
    unhappiness increases, as time passes.
  - Try to complete the triangle within one round, whenever possible. 
    If you can't do it, practise. It will give you enough time for
    a second conversational topic.

 EXTRA HINT:  
  - If you choose a topic that make her angry, follow up on that topic
    as soon as possible.
  - If you are going for Normal Conversational Topics 『通常会話』,
    try to have more than one red ball and if not, a couple of yellow
    balls (in additional to that), so than you have more choices for it. 
  - If you are going for Progressive Conversational Topics 『発展会話』
    or Intimate Conversational Topics 『親密会話』, one red ball should be
    enough... Of course, having more than one red balls is much better.
  - Increase her health by giving the girl Chinsukou (ちんすこう), whenever 
    her health is low. 『相手体力回復』

========================================================================
STRATEGY
========================================================================
TARGET FOR GIRLS OTHER THAN YOUR TARGET GIRL:
 - Must get her after-conversation event in one try (except maybe
   Hina-chan), then talk to her for the second time and ask to take
   her photo at the last 3 minutes. Use forcefully (強引に取る) or beg
   her (頼み込む) if necessarily. Don't use forcefully (強引に取る)or 
   beg her (頼み込む) for your target girl.

TARGET FOR FIRST DAY [DAY 2]:
 - Buy 1 Necklace (ネックレス) [+480 Appearance, +300 Sense] 
   at Ginza Street (銀座通り) and used it immediately. 
 - Fill ALL your inventory with Chinsukou (ちんすこう) [+240 Health each] 
   at Machiei Meadow (町営牧場)
 - Have one or more conversations with your target girl using only
   Normal Conversational Topic 『通常会話』 until you get an 
   after-conversation event (no CG). Hina-chan is toughest one here. 
   So, try remembering her favourite topic. If you are really lucky 
   and know her favourite topic, you should be able to get her 
   after-conversation event in one conversation. Try to choose
   topics that unlock Progressive Conversational Topics 『発展会話』, 
   as well, ESPECIALLY "Suki na taipu [好きなタイプ]", which always
   unlock Ren'ai Kanren (Romantic Love-related) [恋愛関連]
 - After you get her FIRST after-conversation event, talk to your 
   target girl two or three more times to finish some of her 
   Progressive Conversational Topics 『発展会話』 (especially, her 
   Ren'ai Kanren [恋愛関連] Topics). 
 - Increase her health by giving the girl Chinsukou (ちんすこう), 
   whenever her health is low.
 - Talk to other girls, if you don't have anything to do at that
   place (no part-time job, etc).

TARGET FOR SECOND DAY [DAY 3] (OR THIRD DAY [DAY 4]):
 - Keep talking to the girl, using up as much Progressive 
   Conversational Topic 『発展会話』 and Intimate Conversational 
   Topic 『親密会話』 until you will get the SECOND after-conversation 
   event.
 - Keep talking to the girl, using up as much Progressive 
   Conversational Topic 『発展会話』 and Intimate Conversational 
   Topic 『親密会話』 until when you end the day, you will get a 
   phone call from the girl.
 - This is the best time to LOAD and SAVE to get all the side events
   (or the CG events). They are NOT required to win the girl, but
   it's good to put them in the album, right?

TARGET FOR DAYS AFTER THAT:
 - Complete all Conversational Topic 『発展会話』 and Intimate Conversational 
   Topic 『親密会話』.
 - Stock up Chinsukou (ちんすこう), whenever you are out of them. Watch
   out for your appearance, as well.
 - Then, fast forward until at the end of Day 7. If you did not 
   receive a phone call from the girl, that means that the girl has
   YET to reach a level where she is in love with you.
 - When you reach the level where she will phone you at the end of 
   Day 7. Make sure she is not unhappy or too embarassed. Once you
   make sure of that, you can ignore the girl completely and go
   after the other girls.
 - Take at least one photo of the other girls and one of those photos
   must be different than the rest.
 - Once you are done (Day 5 or Day 6), you can fast forward to the 
   last day (Day 8) to get her second STORY event.
