Must follow routes in order to see all endings?

I'm reading guides and I'm confused by this. Take this one for example:

Why do I have to do the endings in that order to "see all endings?" It makes it sound like I'll be forbidden to see the other endings if I don't follow the guide. Plus, what's with the strict ordering of the routes anyways?

Can anyone elaborate? I'd like to just play the game myself the first time through, but I better not if I'm just going to end up restricting my completion %.Last modified on 2012-08-02 at 02:03

Can't fully answer your question, but t2899 is a topic about route ordering and what not.

From what I see everywhere, this is not really a VN you are going to 100% without a walkthrough or come anywhere close. Personally I'd just use the walkthrough for it, especially considering it's set up in a specific way to go with the story (Mayuri -> Kurisu -> True order makes sense, if you do it a different way you'll miss certain plot points and be confused/spoiled early.

From what I gather the rest you can do however you want... Just make sure to do those 3 in that order.

I apologize if any of this is incorrect.Last modified on 2012-08-02 at 04:05

The guide doesn't spoil anything either, so it's safe to follow it.

Also, doing this game without a guide is near impossible since some of the choices are completely counterintuitive.

Um, they're ordered like that because the structure of the game is linear with branches off each chapter from 6 on. You can do them in any order, or just not do them. There's no real point doing anything but the true end.

Actually, I disagree - there is a point to doing Mayuri's route. That and the true end are the only two real routes worth doing (Mayuri route is *not* linear with true end, the choices you make leading you to Mayuri end lock you out of Kurisu/true)Last modified on 2012-08-02 at 11:01
