Please do not repost! Please link people to this instead of posting the whole walkthrough elsewhere. Thank you!

Notes:

  • This game has both good and bad ends. You will be placed into a route at Chapter 5 depending on whomever you have the most Affection with (or don’t…) and then you have to continue to keep your affection up.
  • Not all choices will actually add up to making the sakura bud, but some will get you little interactions with the character who’s route you are on.
  • Important choices that matter towards affection will be marked with [Affection Up].
  • I will also make choices that will get you the most interaction with the love interest who’s route you are trying to get into!
  • If you think there is a choice better for a character route than the one I have listed, please comment and let me know so that I can look into it.
