Hello, sports fans! Did ya miss this blog? Well, doods, it’s about time I do something about that! Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Xmas was great. I even got a PS3
with a copy of Disgaea 3!
So, it turns out the reason that I didn’t get the right journal entries earlier was because I was doing the steps out of order. I had Jennifer say how close Laharl & Etna were, followed by Etna sharing the pudding, when what I should’ve been doing was have Jennifer say something and then help Flonne
, while the pudding sharing would be in a cycle afterwards! Now, I said that I made a separate save file just so I wouldn’t have to bore you by going through these same events over and over again…but I haven’t heard any suggestions for what to do next, so I may as well go through with it anyways!
You’ve already seen me do most of this before, in separate parts, so I won’t go into major details. However, after helping out Flonne and meeting the Prinny, I possess the penguin-dood instead. He’s relieved when Laharl leaves to search his bedroom, but worries that this ‘pudding war’ will get nasty if it’s not solved fast. Our current victim decides that someone else will probably handle it, and starts desiring some hard liquor. Laharl then blows up.
The cycle after that, I set things up so that Captain Gordon
& Etna meet again. I have her tell Captain Gordon
that he looks tired, which leads to an…interesting scene.
Sprite Event Etna: Food First? (a bunch of Japanese cuisine falls from the sky) Shower First? (Red hot springs fall from the sky, land in a different corner) Or… (jumps into the sky, comes back down lying in a bed that lands on center screen) M e <3? (Captain Gordon: “…”)
Regular Etna: You must be tired and stressed out from all those hero-jobs you do. Why not rest today, dude?
Captaing Gordon: W, well, it’s certainly surprising to hear you actually care about my health, but…I mean, thanks. That warms my heart!
Etna: (everything in the sprite event disappears, Etna is radiating red energy) *gasp* Wh, wh, what the hell…?! (red energy shockwave knocks Captain Gordon into the PSP screen) Urrp! Ugh, I’m going to vomit!

One scene with Jennifer later, and after we bump into Laharl again, I have Etna offer to share the pudding. I take hold of Laharl, who muses that Etna was acting like his mother, and that he’ll take care of her when she comes back. While Laharl quickly goes bored from the wait, Thursday, Captain Gordon
& Jennifer run past. Laharl then connects 2 and 2 together, realizing that Etna’s not coming back.
A couple of moments later, and…I still don’t get the right diary entry, dood! This is so frustrating! I reload a save, and decide that maybe I should follow Etna in that ‘sharing’ scene again. And…I still don’t get it. So I go back to the beginning AGAIN, and other than temporarily controlling Jennifer, I don’t take my flipper-things off of Laharl all day. Protagonist Prinny wonders if he could use Mind Control right before Laharl takes a bite out of the ‘pudding’, but he bites into it without hesitation. And…we get a new diary entry! “Lord Laharl’s obsessed with food! Mind Control doesn’t work because his mind totally blanks, dood!” …Not what I was looking for, but interesting nonetheless, dood.
Next cycle, I don’t bother with finding out that one thing I haven’t had Jennifer say to us yet, and just skip ahead to the Laharl/Etna confrontation. I have Etna ask to share again, follow her to the end…and still no diary entry! What the hell, dood?! I did everything that GameFAQs
said I should; why isn’t this working?! …Eh, you know what? This entry is finished, and I’m not going for these silly ending requirements again for a long while. At least I found one new thing for the Database…
Other No. 2 – Crab Brain
If you remove the shell from a steamed crab, you’ll find this pasty, miso-like thing. The Flamin’ Crab from the Sea of Gehenna is known for its crab brain, like the pudding. The red, pastry thing is supposed to go very well with rice and Fish Cakes. Flonne yells out this dish’s name quite often. It’s a crab’s innards!
…Well, we still have no clue why
she says it, but at least it’s semi-interesting information.
