Since this game was never released outside of Japan, most players will have a bit of trouble figuring out the the menus and how the system works. That's why I wrote this guide to help you out. Don't forget to check the previous post for more information.

● Skill Roulette
After winning a round of mahjong, you'll be allowed to play a game of roulette which will grant you a Special Skill depending on the result.
Mouse over the image to view the original.Mystic Gem:
A glowing gem means that you've already unlocked the skill of the character holding that gem. A normal gem means that one of your party member's skill have yet to be unlocked. A black gem means that you have yet to acquire that gem. Only by unlocking 9 glowing gems will allow you to get the good ending of the game.Special Skill:
This is the count down to unlock the skill of the shown character (in this case: Reeko). You can get Skill Points everytime you win with a high enough score or by getting a certain combination at the roulette. Once Special Skill hits 0, you'll unlock the character's skill and her gem will then glow.Support:
This number signifies how many times you can use the Special Skills of the party members you've unlocked.Tenjou Tenge/Tengen Zettou/Gekka Joujin:
Painyan's special skill. Please refer to the previous page for the effects.
● Roulette Combinations
Here are all the possible combinations for the roulette. Remember, getting a bad tile will end the roulette immediately so be sure to get the timing correctly.
Skill Point +1
Tenjou Tenge +1
Tengen Zettou +1
Gekka Joujin +1
● Search Areas
After defeating a character in a game of mahjong, you'll play a minigame afterwards called "Search Mode". This will allow you to grope the defeated character from one place to another in search of the Mystic Gem you need to defeat the mythical fox. You must first find a few areas you can grope until the Mystic Gem starts to shine and reveals its location. Areas marked with a RED circle are places you must touch first before the final location with the BLUE circle appears.
Mouse over the images below to view the original.
Painyan's Search Mode minigame can only be unlocked by allowing yourself to be defeated by Kyuubi no Kitsune during the final chapter. She will be the one groping you this time and losing your gem will result in a Game Over screen. Worry not, you can still continue your game afterwards.

I tried to use Javascipt to code the mouse over switching of the images but Blogger keeps deleting the code everytime I go to "Compose" so I'll have to painfully type this post in "Edit HTML."
Also, most of the translation work here weren't actual translations but more like interpretations based on observations of their use and their effects. I prefer to call it guesslations but that's not really a word, at least not yet.
