Blinder than blind, here's Shuffle!

Patience is a virtue!
Before I return to the main route tree, I'm going to check out something I became curious about a couple of days ago: the route tree for Lisianthus/Kikyou. As a reminder, the first scene is where Kikyou wants to sleep on Rin's lap, while the second is where she jumps at him in the swimming pool. The only thing these effect is the subject of Lisianthus' second H-scene.

Let her have it her way & Dodge = Lisianthus

Let her have it her way & Catch her = Kikyou

Make it stop & Dodge = Lisianthus

Make it stop & Catch her = Lisianthus

So I guess my initial choices here got the least likely result. :P


000010000 - Lisianthus

000010001 - Primula

000010010 - Kaede (I'm getting the feeling that Asa's route requires "somebody else" - X 11 XXXXXX - but can still be... avoided with a variety of combinations of other choices. :/)

000010011 - Primula

000010100 - Lisianthus

000010101 - Primula (She's seeming to be of a rather high liklihood for not being one of the main three. A pity I can't check what the results for all these would be had I not already completed Nerine's route.)

000010110 - Kaede

000010111 - Primula

000011000 - Lisianthus

000011001 - Primula (Interesting. Insult Primula but give her a present and all is forgiven.)

000011010 - Kaede (On the other hand, insulting Kaede yet going home to her early doesn't seem nearly as bad)

000011011 - Primula

000011100 - Lisianthus

000011101 - Primula

000011110 - Kaede

000011111 - Primula


Well, so that's all of that big choice done once-over. Shall we have a look at the current tally?

Lisianthus - 10

Nerine - 0

Kaede - 10

Asa - 0

Primula - 12

After seeing Primula as almost every second route, I'm actually surprised she's not doing better. Moving on though.


000100000 - Lisianthus

000100001 - Lisianthus

000100010 - Kaede

000100011 - Kaede

000100100 - Lisianthus

000100101 - Lisianthus

000100110 - Kaede

000100111 - Kaede

000101000 - Lisianthus

000101001 - Lisianthus

000101010 - Kaede

000101011 - Kaede

000101100 - Lisianthus

000101101 - Lisianthus

000101110 - Kaede

000101111 - Kaede (Compared to earlier, this is a lot without Primula... and I expect it to continue for quite a while.)

000110000 - Lisianthus

000110001 - Lisianthus

000110010 - Kaede

000110011 - Kaede

000110100 - Lisianthus (Honestly, I've repeatedly been tempted to just copy-paste whole sections when I'm fairly sure which ending it'd lead to, but that might make me miss an unexpected ending.)

000110101 - Lisianthus

000110110 - Kaede

000110111 - Kaede

000111000 - Lisianthus

000111001 - Lisianthus

000111010 - Kaede

000111011 - Kaede

000111100 - Lisianthus

000111101 - Lisianthus

000111110 - Kaede

000111111 - Kaede


...And that's pretty much the limit of what I can do in one day (I mean, sure this didn't take all day to write up, but it did take about as long as a normal installment). Here's the tally as it stands now:

Lisianthus - 26

Nerine - 0

Kaede - 26

Asa - 0

Primula - 12

Might do more tomorrow, but quite possibly won't.

.

Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, while watching the OP again, I noticed that while there are several CG scenes from the main part of Shuffle! in there, there are also a few which can only be found in the OP. The ones with Asa, Primula & Kaede and Lisianthus, Primula & Kaede come to mind in particular.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Kinda bugged me since I can't get a screenshot of them.
