Awesome / Ketsui

  • Unlocking the standard second loop, otherwise known as the omote loop, which requires completing the first loop with the sum of bombs used and lives lost being no greater than 6.
    • At Anime Expo 2014, during the STG Weekly panel, one of the panelists achieved the omote loop in front of a live audience. Even more impressive is that it was his first time doing so!
  • Even better is the special second loop, aka the ura loop, which requires a no-miss, no bomb run AND at least 120 million points. The game doesn't say "WELCOME TO SPECIAL ROUND" for nothing.
  • Complete the ura loop and DOOM will appear. If you can take him down, congratulations, you are one of the best Ketsui players in the world.
