Raidou the 14th! This is shameful. You have disappointed us. Your abilities are pathetic compared to the ones who preceded you! It was a grave error for you to assume the mantle of the 14th Raidou Kuzunoha. We have no choice. You've slandered the sacred name of Raidou. Begone!

On Your Decision
HAS BEEN OVER
Rhythm League Notes
That...could have been better. Try Again
This court sees no reason to further prolong the trial. Nor is there any need for more time to decide the case against the defendant. This court finds the defendant,
<defendant's name>...Guilty. The accused will surrender to the court immediately, to be held pending trial at a higher court within a month from today's date. That is all. The court is adjourned!
showing real courage, you ran:
everyone is a winner
WHY DON'T YOU TRY HARD?
"Beyond the river is the land of the dead...It is where the souls of the deceased endure nothingness as they await reincarnation...Oh, it's you again. You died so carelessly...Macca opens all doors. I'd be willing to do this for you for a little compensation. You can also pay me in Play Coins, if you'd like."
"You just HAD to make more work for me...Fine, take this number. Let me be clear: your turn will come up long after the wind erodes the boulders down to sand. Go idle the time away for eternity, soul of a former Samurai."
(fade to black) "Now then, what number was I at...? Whew...Honestly, this is going to take forever to settle!"

"You fainted. No continues remaining. Quest failed."
Death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey, one is always aware that it lies in wait. Though life is merely a journey to the grave, it must not be undertaken without hope. Only then will a traveler's tale live on, treasured by those who bid him farewell. But alas, my guest's life has ended, his tale left unwritten.
"Sorry, this is the end of this game."
"Sorry, you didn't accumulate enough points to move on to the next round. Better luck next time!"
