a0 (Chapter 0: A Strange Tale)


Ryuki's dream in the opening sequence.

Ryuki is dreaming, but it purposely doesn't look like a dream.

All of the scenery feels realistic (just like it is in the investigation part)

Line (JP) Line (EN) Comment Translation
Host: The New Cyclops Serial Killings... The incident in which many victims got their eye gouged out and murdered... //この世界線は前作のGrand Finaleと繋がっているので、第2サイクロ事件で殺されたのは硝子と沖浦の2人だけ。 Since this world line is connected to the previous game's Grand Finale, the only two people killed in the New Cyclops Serial Killings were Shoko and Renju.
Only b2 is not split. It's a metaphor for the number of victims in the main story. (During cutscene at the end of Ryuki's dream. "b2" refers to the blue figure sitting to Boss's right.)
Supplement: Behind the scenes

This file pretends to be Ryuki's dream in the past (6 years ago), but is actually Ryuki's dream in the present. Ryuki has this dream after drinking and getting drunk at Brahman. So, the blue people and Boss being halved is not a "precognitive dream," but rather caused by past trauma.


Mizuki's first appearance at the Stadium.

//・正式名称『Evolver-MC』//MCは『Mizuki Custom』の略。
There is a gun at Mizuki's left armpit (inside the uniform jacket). Usually unseen.

The gun is like Date's Evolver. The official name is "Evolver-MC," MC short for "Mizuki Custom." It transforms like Date's Evolver. It can also be loaded with various bullets such as fire rounds and explosive rounds in the same way.

Masked Woman.

Carries a rifle. No scope (She has Marco, so the scope is unnecessary)


The body appearing at Studio Dvaita in the past.

//・看板には『Fray to Free!』という文言と『QRコード』が記されている。//◎inc確認。別案:『Be Frayed to Be Free』『Be Frayed, Not Afraid』
"Fray to Free!" and a QR code are on the signboard. Alternatives: "Be Frayed to Be Free," "Be Frayed, Not Afraid"

*Japanese equivalent of Ryuki's "Half Might" reference. Every time this line comes up, the number is a different multiple of 2. A ticket number on every Hanpanman line suggests it was changed from something else.

Mizuki: I'm fine... I've seen worse. //『サンポケで吊り上げられた沖浦の死体のこと』ではない。それは別の世界線でのこと。この世界線でみずきが見たのは『犀人のアジトに転がっていた沖浦』と『頭が吹っ飛んだ犀人』 Not Renju's body suspended at Sunfish Pocket. That was in another world line. In this world line, what Mizuki saw was Renju's body lying in Saito's hideout, and Saito's head blown off.

*Direct translation. In AI1's Japanese text, the "Sabako" Aiba jokes about coming from the Psync Room TV is a 38-year old mackerel with limbs.

*Psyncer: Mizuki
  • Subject: Ryuki
  • Location: Naix Underground Cathedral (West)

  • Before the Psync

Ryuki was in charge of the HB case 6 years ago. He might know something... That's Mizuki thought, so she went to ask him, but he was drunk and not able to hold a proper conversation. So, she decided to Psync...

  • In his heart

Ryuki is in agony like he's being chopped to pieces over losing Date in the explosion 6 years ago. He thinks, "it's my fault Date was killed." In fact, it is his fault for getting everyone involved in the explosion, but but will not be revealed yet. Ryuki has always been suffering mentally, but that's why his condition has gotten worse. His mental state got even worse and he became an alcoholic.

  • Supplement:

Ryuki was already suffering even more Side Ryuki (prior to 6 years ago) because of the aftereffects of seeing the scene of his brother's accident.
Branch: Yes
Divides into Side Ryuki route and Side Mizuki route.

  • Supplement:

Please do not try to enter Side Mizuki route without clearing both endings of Side Ryuki. There is no flag. "The culprit's last name is Dahlia" is heard in Side Ryuki chapter 4 R2 end. "The culprit's first name is Boat" is heard in Side Ryuki chapter 5 R1 end. If you don't hear these, you can't enter Side Mizuki. I think a "What is the culprit's name" password input is good. If you can enter "Dahlia Boat," you'll go to Side Mizuki route.

  • Supplement:

This means this will be the 8th Somnium for players. They'll play this stage a secong time. So... please set the difficulty of "Side Ryuki route" to Super Very Easy, and "Side Mizuki route" to moderately hard.

  • Final facts revealed: Side Ryuki

A blue person appears. #Uchi (12/26): At first, I supposed the blue person would be Tearer or Tokiko, but because of the Somnium's connection, the blue person became Date.

  • Final facts revealed: Side Mizuki

"Dahlia Boat" itself is the last fact to be revealed. Mizuki (Aiba?) should not know "Dahlia Boat," but somehow she does. (Aiba was at the scene of the explosion, but after that all her memories were erased.) Even though Mizuki (and Aiba) don't know, the player knows. This implies the player's position in relation to this game. (Tokiko's ultimate goal is to contact the player.)

R1_Somnium (New Investigation)

Fade in from white. A blue eyeball drops and rolls on the desk. (Eyeball that looks like a blue person’s) (Mizuki’s lost left eye)
#Uchi: Mizuki was in the cathedral at the time, so she knows about the cathedral.

#Uchi: Aiba has lost her memories, but she also knows there was an explosion at the cathedral.

Suddenly, when you look at the ceiling, the rubble has all become red left hands. (Palms facing down) (Uru's left hand)

(Note: The hands in game appear green.)

With a deep sense of regret, Ryuki once put the muzzle of a gun to his temple in the past. (In the end, he didn’t shoot)
Fade in from white. The blue lower half of a body drops at Ryuki’s side. (Left half looks like a blue person’s) (Kizuna’s lower half that has stopped moving)

The rubble from the ceiling falls, burying Ryuki. The rubble piles up on Ryuki, showing only his head and right arm and shoulder. Ryuki imagined how painful it would be if he were in Date’s position, and dreams of it often…
#Uchi: By the way… In the plot, it says the blue person who reaches out here was Tearer. But, I’ll match it with the investigation part with the above development. The plot also says “the blue person says some memorable words,” but please forget this. We’ll figure something out.

Mizuki: Tama was Ryuki's anchor... She kept him tethered to the real world.

Aiba: Right…

//ちょっと伊達のことを思い出す感じで Feels like she remembers Date for a moment


Aiba: Awfully strange advice...

Mizuki: Yeah...

//伊達のそういうとこ好きだけど認めたくない強がり含めての『ふーん…』 Mizuki likes that side of Date but doesn’t want to acknowledge it so she bluffs and says “Yeah…”

Boss: Who would do such a thing...?

// Aの左側とBの右側を融合させたらどうなるのか?について知りたがっている。


*Location: Horadori Institute of Genetics lab

  • In Chikara’s heart 1

Chikara is shaken because his child (Jin Furue) was killed. He’s also terribly sad. He also knows the culprit. It’s Uru, who was confined in the basement. But his lips are sealed no matter what.

  • In Chikara’s heart 2

Chikara has an insane level of interest in immortality.

  • In Chikara’s heart 3

Chikara is a crazy mad scientist. He wants to know what would happen if you cut two bodies, A and B, into left and right halves, then fused the right half of A with the left half B, or the left half of A with the right half of B. He was attempting to carry out an experiment for that purpose.

  • Branch: No

  • Final facts revealed

A person wearing a Naix uniform (with the Nonuple-X with “Naixatloz” written on it) enters. The Naix member heads for the PC and makes a video. Approach the video → it turns out to be Bats490. Or, the opposite sequence, Bats490 → Naix follower → Nonuple-X mark and Naixatloz, is also fine.

R1_Somnium (Nefarious Institute)

// この状態を法螺鳥は『エピジェネティックエクスタシー状態』と呼ぶ
// (『エクスタシー!!』と叫んだりする)
// 『このシミュレーション世界はなんでもできるし、なにをやっても許される素晴らしい世界だ!』
Because of the experiment’s success, and Chikara’s inspiration, his brain floods with pleasure-inducing chemicals. Chikara calls this state “Epigenetic Ectasy.” (He shouts something like “Ectasy!”) “This simulation is a wonderful world where you’re allowed to to anything!”
Line (JP) Line (EN) Comment Translation
Tama: It is said he can control the rules of reality itself and is looked up to as the father of God. //#打:『%』の印を持つ者が創造者。法螺鳥はその父。 #Uchi: The person with the “%” mark is the Creator. Chikara is his father.

Placeholder file for Tokiko's Somnium.







//『ニルヴァーナ構想(Nirvana Initiative)』
//その計画の名は『ニルヴァーナ構想(Nirvana Initiative)』という。
  • In her heart 1

Tokiko is a believer in simulation theory. Her ultimate goal is to cause glitches in this world and achieve Moksha. Tokiko is aware of the player's existence. She wants to confuse and disturb players and cause the world's program to malfunction.

  • In her heart 2

She is worried about a certain person (Amame). "Can she do everything as I said?" she wonders. Tokiko is going to cut her body in half with the slicer in the Horadori Institute basement. Then, she'll have Amame carry the right half of her body to the president's office.

  • Person appearing 1: Sack man

6 years ago, the person in the sack is Gen. Gen's face and skeleton are warped and unsightly due to Chikara's genome editing. Tokiko is not involved with the genome editing, but she knows about it through Chikara, and feels pity for Gen. Somewhere in her heart, she may have put her feelings towards her real son Jin Furue onto Gen.

  • Person appearing 2: Shoma

A child who, like Gen, had his genome edited. (His growth was slowed down after a certain point in time.) While she feels pity for him, he is also a precious follower of NAIX's teachings. Somewhere in her heart, she may have put her feelings towards Uru onto Shoma.

  • Branch: No

  • Final facts revealed

She knows that someone (Uru) has a plan called the "Nirvana Initiative." Ryuki heard about the Nirvana Initiative six years ago, so it feels familiar to him.

R12_somnium (Naixatloz's Intentions)

Suddenly, a blue figure and "Tokiko B" appear in the center of the bridge. "Tokiko B" is different from "Tokiko A sitting in the chair." Both exist at the same time. Tokiko A sitting in the chair is just sitting and not moving. The blue figure represents Amame.

The blue figure and Tokiko B are standing perfectly still in silence. The camera alternates between them motionlessly. After alternating several times, the left half of Tokiko B's face slides straight down for a moment.
A metaphor for her interaction with Amame. Change the camera to Tama's shocked face for a second. When it retuns to Tokiko B again, she is standing there and not cut. (Huh? Was the cut a mistake...?)

When you read it, 9 skulls (skulls A-I) will suddenly appear. Gen's skeleton and body have become distorted... She thinks of the many children whose skeletons were changed by Chikara's experiments. That's the metaphor.
[The black figures] don't do anything. If you leave, they disappear. If you don't get close, you won't see anything. (It's the opposite of the amusement park gameplay, you can't see it if you don't get close. Looks like a BT from Death Stranding.)
Line (JP) Line (EN) Comment Translation
この世は虚構…わかりますか? Tokiko: This world is a lie... Do you understand? //(祥磨入信時の時雨の言葉) (Tokiko's words to Shoma when he joined.)

ともに超えましょう、世界を… Let's transcend this world, together... //(数か月後、祥磨が弟子のようになったときの時雨の言葉) (Tokiko's words to Shoma a few months later when he had become like her disciple.)
Tama: It says..."When the eyes are met, death is born"... //→◎洗脳動画を見て大量死が発生することの暗喩 A metaphor for the large number of deaths from watching the brainwashing video.
// →◎これからニルヴァーナ計画で死ぬことになる大量の人たち(をただ無感情に見ているだけ)
Outside the window, falling blue figures slowly flow from top to bottom. (6-8 people at most in a loop.) Tokiko is just staring at the bizarre scene outside her window. These are the many people who will die from the Nirvana Initiative (she just watches apathetically.)

Meaning high school. (Tama) Shoma is 18 in the present. However, because of his young appearance, he hasn’t been attending school.

It’s too late…that was 6 years ago.

Even though he’s really 18, he still looks 12.
Angrily, because his own father was killed by Tearer.

The Bibi here now has experienced Side Mizuki Chapter 4 M1, the abandoned factory event 6 years ago on 2/14. So, she should know the following information:

Connection to Jin Furue
Jin Furue is Chikara and Tokiko’s son. There is a person with an identitcal face to his. Bibi has only seen the left half of his face, but she would never expect that the right half of his face was made of chitin. That person is the culprit, and she hasn’t heard his name. He called Tokiko “Mom” and held an unhealthy affection for her.

Connection to the Nirvana Initiative
On 2/14 6 years ago, the Masked Woman (Bibi) heard about the Nirvana Initiative. She doesn’t know specifically what the plan is about. However, she does know it’s “a plan to cause many bugs and drag the Creator into this world,” or so Uru said. Tokiko was there, so NAIX is involved. It’s probably a very dangerous plan. That’s why she doesn’t want to get her little sister involved.

Why Bibi didn’t tell anyone about the above
On 2/14 6 years ago, the culprits (Uru and Tokiko), said this as they left the abandoned chemical plant: “Don’t tell anyone what you saw here today. If you do, we’ll kill your sister.” Because of that, she can’t report any of it to ABIS. Of course, she didn’t tell her sister either. She doesn’t want to involve her in the case.

Connection to Ryuki
Ryuki is a traitor. On 2/14 6 years ago, Ryuki fired a super-powerful stun bullet at Bibi. Because of that, she hasn't been able to investigate properly for the last 6 years. That's why she strongly resents Ryuki. But, as a result of her investigation, she has learned that Ryuki does not have a close tie to the culprits. Even if she beat him to a pulp, she wouldn't find any clues. And, because of the explosion 6 years ago, Ryuki is suffering mentally. Ryuki likely appears calm right now because of his memory disorder and disorientation. Ryuki can't bear the sin he committed, so he detatches himself and tries to escape from it. Telling him the truth like that won't help him. For that reason, she keeps silent and doesn't tell him various things.

Ryuki investigating the cathedral underneath the NAIX building.


At the time, Ryuki didn’t feel like anything in particular happened. But, in that moment, he was infected with TC-PERGE, created by Uru. As a result, his mental state has become extreme in present time chapters: Mizuki Chapter 3, Ryuki Chapter 4, and Mizuki Chapter 5. As his hallucinations get worse, he starts to believe, “Maybe this world really is fictional…”

Then, on the left, a blue figure (Amame) appears from the shadow of a nearby pillar.
Supplement: Ryuki sees a blue figure because of his hallucinations, but Tama sees Amame normally.

The bad ending that occurs when Ryuki is hit by a torch is because there are no cardboard boxes on the floor. Because of that, Ryuki crashes into the floor and is seriously injured, requiring him to be hospitalized. The events of Ryuki Chapter 4 in the present then do not happen. Since there were cardboard boxes under the bridge, no bad ending happens and the story goes on. The events of Ryuki Chapter 4 occur.

  • Ryuki on the 12th, Side Ryuki: Made a big mistake. (Distinct from the incident where he failed to catch Amame. He fired at a civilian in Side Mizuki Chapter 2.)

Ryuki’s “mistake” is that of firing as a civilian in Side Mizuki Chapter 2. The event where he fails to catch a person who seemed to be the culprit (Amame) happens in the future, so it can’t be mentioned here.

Ryuki visiting Aioen and speaking with Kizuna, Mizuki, Riichi, and Lien.

You will only be able to “Look” at Mizuki and Kizuna. Or, even if you can talk to them, they’ll reply, “Don’t you have something to talk to Chieda-san (father) about?”

Kizuna: ... //考える。そしてみずき姉からの言いつけを思い出す。絆ソムニウム参照。


She considers it. Then, she remembers what Bibi said to her. See Kizuna’s Somnium for reference.

“Big Sis found out about Cinderella's dream and started panicking. ‘Cinderella, even if someone proposes to you, you can't just accept it right away. Don't answer until you know who they really are. Wait five or six years.’”

  • Aioen orphanage garden

Lien, Mizuki, and Ryuki are near the tree. Kizuna is near the center of the garden. The music starts, and Kizuna begins to dance. Mizuki and Lien get pumped up. Lien is so overcome with emotion, he might cry. Ryuki is baffled at first, but midway through he starts looking on Kizuna’s dance with a smile.
The dance continues... Everyone loves it. Nothing could be happier than this moment. A dreamlike space. They want it to go on forever and forever... But the dance will end before they know it. The magic cast on Cinderella will be undone.
Then, the dance ends... Mizuki and Lien burst into applause. Ryuki claps too. Then, a strong breeze fiercely shakes the tree’s branches. A single leaf flutters and falls through the air. There is slight unrest in the air... As if waking from a dream, they return to reality.

Yikes, this file got crazy-long...


Ryuki visiting Misetan and speaking to Shoma in the Ferris wheel.

Ryuki met Shoma at the Enda residence in a250, but that was in the present time (6 years later). That should make the player think, “Did he get in a fight after that meeting and run away from home?” and feel like something is slightly out of place.

So actually knows that Iris is his daughter with Manaka. He doesn't intend to "erase" her or anything, he simply wants to meet his daughter. (Iris, Ota, and Moma don't know that Iris is So's daughter.) By the way, in the previous game, Iris went to the Sejima residence on the route where she dies, so it's not connected to the history of this game.


Placeholder file for Komeji’s Somnium.



// 警備員に無理を言って、未明に屋上遊園地へ…。






//それは犯人にとって、とても大事なものだった。//古衛の左半身 //古衛の左半身
  • In his heart

Komeji used to be a quiz king. He became an entertainer, but he had no chance at moving up. His wife fell out of love with him and left. Komeji raised his son Shoma as a single father.

  • In his heart

Komeji is proud to be an entertainer. At the same time, it's a pity that he's an unpopular comedian. He truly wants to let Shoma live a better life. He feels guilty that things have been hard on Shoma because of his selfish dream.

  • In his heart

In the early dawn of 2/11, Komeji retrieved Jin's left half at the rooftop amusement park (after Jin's right half appeared at the studio). (He also hosted the quiz, saw the right half appear, and saw the thermite explosion. He couldn't help but get drunk, so on the morning of 2/11 he was dead drunk.) Komeji stole the left half because he thought it would get him money. He hasn't seen the culprit. But, he thinks the fact that such a brutally murdered corpse was left here is proof that the culprit wants to show off the body. It's probably the same culprit from the incident at the studio... Komeji thought the culprit would surely contact him, having been robbed.
No one but Komeji stopped here before dawn on 2/11. He remains in the guard's record. Because he left something important on the rooftop amusement park's stage, he had no choice but to come to there in the early morning. There, he found the left half of Jin's body. (After that, he hid the left half in a suitcase and took it. Now, the body is in the international restaurant Brahman's freezer.) By checking the guard's records, you'll immediately realize that he stole the body. When the culprit contact him, Komeji followed his instructions and went to Horadori Institute.

  • In his heart

By the way, why did Komeji do something so rash and dangerous? If he were to come into contact with the culprit, it's extremely likely he would be killed himself. Didn't he consider that? Or what if the police discovered him in the middle of transporting the body?

  • In his heart

Now, Komeji has a large amount of debt. A number of loan sharks are pressuring and threatening him to repay them. "If you can't repay it within a month, we'll abduct your son and sell him off overseas." He couldn't talk to the police, because he was complicit in selling and smuggling firearms for the yakuza. That's why Komeji needed money no matter what. What's more, he was dead drunk when he stole Jin's left half. He had lost all reason and made a daring move without thinking. Now he deeply regrets it, but there's no going back... If something happens, he'll have no choice but to run as far as he can go!

  • Branch: Yes

Divides into R2 and R1. R2 is the Komeji and Shoma Route. R1 is the Explosion Route.

  • Contents:

Komeji’s feelings of love for Shoma are faintly moving. Expresses the comically melancholic state of a man who did something foolish to save his son.

  • Final facts revealed: R2 route

Shoma somehow seems to know about Horadori Institute’s secret. It still isn’t clear what the secret is.

  • Final facts revealed: R1 route

On the early morning of the 11th, it seems Komeji obtained something at the rooftop amusement park. That something is very important to the culprit (Jin’s left half). It would seem Komeji was trying to use that important thing to blackmail the culprit for money.

  • In his heart

Shoma truly loves his comedian father. "But my friends make fun of me..."

  • In his heart

Shoma admires NAIX's ideas. He believes this world is fictional. Maybe everything in the world is empty...

  • Contents

Emotional impressions:
-Making people laugh is wonderful.
-It doesn't matter if people make fun of you.
-Isn't it alright to be uncool?
-If as many people as possible can laugh at that...
-If you can create even a little happiness in this brutal world...
-That's the reason.
-That's what comedians do.
Shoma will come to know these feelings one after another in this Somnium. No, since it's within Shoma's brain to begin with, he actually knows them already. He knew, but he pretended not to see. He was lying to his own heart. But in this dream, he will face his feelings honestly.

  • Final facts revealed

Shoma gets his smile back. Laughter undoes NAIX’s brainwashing.

//ビリビリ…!! これによってタマ、機能停止。
The following events occur while Ryuki is unconscious. This will be solved in Chapter 4.

Tearer (iron mask) appears from the shadows and kidnaps Komeji. Because Ryuki is standing upright in an unaware state, he doesn't pose a threat, but just to be safe, Tearer shocks him with a powerful stun gun. Beep beep! This causes Tama to stop functioning. Tearer ties Ryuki's limbs tightly and rolls him over.

Tearer takes Komeji to the to the basement of the lab. There, he cuts and kills him. He puts the right half in a black vinyl bodybag and heads for the studio. He's not inside the studio yet. The car is parked in the parking lot and he's taking the body from the trunk.

The three Sekiba girls (Amame, Kizuna, and Iris) and Shoma arrive in front of the studio building by taxi. Amame's in the passenger seat. In the back seat from the left are Kizuna, Iris, and Shoma. Shoma couldn't get out of the car if Kizuna and Iris didn't get out. It takes more time than expected for Kizuna to pay. She tries to pay with card, but it takes a while because the driver is hopeless with machines.

Amame is unable to sit still and gets out of the car early to go inside the studio. Amame enters through door A. Tearer isn't there yet. Of course, Komeji's body isn't there either. Only Ryuki, lying down with his limbs bound with rope. Amame finds Ryuki. She rushes over and tried to untie the rope. At that time, her fake nail comes off. Then, someone enters through door A. It's Tearer. He's rolling a stretcher with a black bodybag on it.

//タッタッタッ…! 扉Aの向こうから近づいてくる足音。
//	Talk("テアラァ", ("私がここにいることは誰にも言うな", "???"));//テアラァ「私がここにいることは誰にも言うな」//ここは『私』
//	Talk("テアラァ", ("おまえのことはこの銃で、ずっと狙っているからな", "???"));//テアラァ「おまえのことはこの銃で、ずっと狙っているからな」
Tearer wears an iron mask. It's suspicious no matter how you look at it. Amame panics and runs away towards door B. There's a camera on a tripod along the way. Amame bumps into the camera and knocks it over. Tearer pursues Amame to catch her. He draws his gun...

Amame keeps going towards a long table. On top of that is a pot of boiling water. Amame bumps into the table. The pot falls down, spilling the boiling water inside on the floor. Having stepped in the boiling water, Amame finally reaches door B. But door B is locked from the outside and she can't open it! Amame turns around, back to the door. And Tearer is already in front of her...

Tearer pins her right arm down and puts the muzzle to her throat. Tearer and Amame stare at each other... In this moment, Tearer (Uru) fell in love. His feelings for Amame surge...

Before long... Tap tap tap! Footsteps getting closer from the other side of door A. Kizuna, Iris, and Shoma's footsteps. Tearer releases Amame's arm. Door B is locked and can't be opened. Someone (Iris & co) is approaching from door A. In other words, there's no way out.

Tearer: Don't tell anyone I'm here.
Tearer: I'll have this gun aimed at you the whole time.

Saying this, Tearer hides behind the set. Behind the set are a large number of mannequins that seem to be for use in another program. Amame walks unsteadily towards door A.

Iris and the others rush in and reunite with Amame. Well, it's only been about three minutes. Amame starts to say something...but she can't. She could be killed... Kizuna and Iris rush over to Ryuki, then untie the rope and continue to the following...

Amame: … //亜麻芽が無言なのはテアラァに脅されてるから、というのもあるが、実の父親である米治の死体を目の当たりにして、失声症を患ったためでもある。 Amame is silent in part because Tearer threatened her, but also because she’s suffering from aphonia after witnessing her own father, Komeji’s, corpse.

Memo: About the 4 videos

[Shared by all videos]

  • Characteristics: Vaporwave flavor


  • Released: Half a year before February in the past (Around early August last year)
  • Production: Made by NAIX according to Tokiko’s direction
  • Code: Yes, scattered throughout the video (?)
  • Purpose: To discover talented individuals who can solve the code and recruit them to NAIX.
  • Characteristics:
    • Begins with a scene of many bats flying around the screen
    • A number of “?” symbols appear throughout
  • Effect:
    • There is no brainwashing effect (harmless to Mizuki) (rather, none of the videos have this effect)
    • Even when Ryuki watches it, he won’t hallucinate (because Uru didn’t make it)
  • Supplement:
    • Shoma solved the code in this video and went to the east cathedral. There, he met Tokiko and devoted himself to NAIX’s ideas.

[QR Video]

  • Released: 2/10 in the past
  • Production: Uru
  • Code: None
  • Purpose: A prototype video for the Nirvana Initiative.
  • Characteristics:
    • Similar to Bats490.
  • Effect:
    • As mentioned above, there is no brainwashing effect (harmless to Mizuki)
    • However, it caused only the traumatized Ryuki to hallucinate (the video was a trigger)
  • Supplement:
    • A sign was stuck into Jin Furue’s right half. The QR code links to the ViewQube video.
    • In Side Ryuki Chapter 3, Iris and Ota say “Lots of people watched this video and disappeared!” but that is just a false rumor (urban legend).

[Nirvana Trial]

  • Released: 2/9 in the present (?)
  • Production: Uru
  • Code: Yes, scattered throughout the video (?)
  • Purpose: Created as a beta version (“rehearsal”) of the Nirvana Initiative video.
  • Characteristics:
    • Similar to Bats490 and the QR video
  • Effect:
    • As mentioned above, there is no brainwashing effect (harmless to Mizuki)
    • However, it caused only the traumatized Ryuki to hallucinate.
  • Supplement: The code in the video leads to the entrance of the east cathedral. In the east cathedral, there is a strange box that infects one with TC-PERGE when opened. TC-PERGE causes the infected to start hallucinating and acting strangely. This is why people with odd, repetitive behaviors have appeared all over Japan. Because the infected have not returned home, many disappearances have been reported. (In other words, the story about disappearances here is true)

[Nirvana X]

  • Released: Midnight on 2/14 in the present (Right after the rocket launch at the rooftop amusement park)
  • Production: Uru
  • Code: Yes, a coded time and coordinates at the end of the video.
  • Purpose: The master version (“performance”) of the Nirvana Initiative video.
  • Characteristics:
    • Similar to the other 3 videos.
  • Effect:
    • As mentioned above, there is no brainwashing effect (harmless to Mizuki)
    • Because Ryuki has already been infected with TC-PERGE, he does not hallucinate.
  • Supplement:
    • The code at the end of the video points to “Noon 2/15” and “stadium.” Uru’s plan was to gather 80,000 people at that time and place to kick off the Nirvana Initiative. There, he aims to fire a large rocket → detonate it in midair → spread TC-PERGE → infect 80,000 people → infect others → many people act strangely → cause simultaneous glitches → collapse the simulation. This video does not cause people to disappear (they just go to the stadium at noon on the 15th)

//	Talk("亜麻芽", ("集められて…", "???"));
//	Talk("亜麻芽", ("みんな死ぬ…", "???"));
* Psyncer: Ryuki

  • Subject: Amame (24)

  • Location; Studio Dvaita

  • Before the Psync

Yesterday (actually 6 years ago) Amame came into contact with Tearer. It's very likely she knows some important information. Ryuki wants to hear about Tearer, but Amame seems to have aphonia (she actually doesn't). So, he decides to Psync...

  • In her heart

Amame was the one who killed Uru, because he killed her father 6 years ago.

  • In her heart

She also watched Tokiko lay herself down on the slicer and die. Following Tokiko’s orders, she carried half of her body to the president's office. (If she disobeys, Tokiko threatened to expose her crime of killing Uru.)

  • In her heart

She's also worried about the Nirvana Initiative.

  • In her heart

Amame loved her father Komeji. She worked as hard as she could at Sunfish Pocket to send him money. She wanted to support his dream of being a comedian. Amame also loved her younger brother Shoma. She sent money to their father to support Shoma's livelihood. She also wanted to fulfill Shoma's dream to become a robotics engineer.

  • Branch: No

  • Contents

This is inside Amame’s dream… Komeji appears as he did while alive, and has a quiz showdown with Ryuki (Tama?) Instead of a cheerful quiz showdown, the atmosphere is vacant and unsettling. It’s like an American comedy with a studio audience. The scene makes you hear the exaggerated audience laughter. It gets scarier and scarier…

  • Final facts revealed

Amame: Nirvana…
Amame: Collected…
Amame: Genocide…
Amame does not know the details of the Nirvana Initiative.

  • Ryuki on the 14th, Side Ryuki: Because Tama was held hostage, Ryuki had no choice but to work with Uru. After shooting Bibi with a super-powerful stun bullet, Date arrived at the abandoned factory and he fled.

Supplement: Mizuki Chapter 4 M1 (last night) c440


  • Ryuki remember's yesterday's events, but he is lying to Tama to protect her. (The details are in c440.) He also knows Tearer has captured Kizuna. He learned this at the abandoned factory. Kizuna is likely at the "execution chamber" Tearer spoke of. But, he doesn't know the specific place... (He hasn't heard from Tearer yet.) Tearer told him "I'll tell you later on," so he might find out if he waits... But he can't sit still! Tearer said "obey my instructions," not "don't search for Kizuna." So, Ryuki decides to look for her…


  • Because Tama had been in a non-fuctional state, she doesn't know what happened. She doesn't know about Ryuki's contact with Tearer in the west cathedral either (mentioned later) because she was unable to back up underground.


  • No one has reported to Boss, so she doesn't know what happened. Bibi, Aiba, Ryuki, and Date all have various reasons they didn't report.
// 『3日以内に事件を解決したら、処分を取り消してあげる』
Supplement: Ryuki’s punishment

Ryuki was punished with demotion in Side Ryuki Chapter 3, but Boss postponed it by 3 days. “If you solve the case in 3 days, I’ll retract the punishment.”

絆は例の動画を見て失踪したのよね? Boss: Kizuna disappeared after watching the video, right? //ここは過去時間。動画とは『QR動画』のこと。ニルヴァーナ動画はまだ配信されていない。ちなみに絆は動画を見て失踪したわけではない。閏軍団に拉致された。 This is the past. The video is the QR video. The Nirvana videos have not been released yet. Incidentally, Kizuna did not disappear because of the video. Uru’s forces kidnapped her.


Tama: Hm, same old, same old... Why do you ask...?

Ryuki: No, it's just...

//タマの内部にはテアラァによって組み込まれた強制消去プログラムが…。龍木はそのことを案じている。 Tearer installed a forced deletion program in Tama. Ryuki is worried about that.


Boss: Ryuki, are you doing okay? Like, mentally?

Tama: You're the one who got him like this...

Supplement: Mizuki Chapter 4 M1 (last night) c440


  • Ryuki fired a stun bullet at Bibi, because Tearer threatened, “If you don’t obey, I’ll destroy all of Tama’s data (including backups).” Date appeared, and Ryuki fled. Ryuki remembers all of this, but has not talked about it to anyone, including Tama, because Tearer said, “Don’t tell anyone.”


  • (same text as b510)


  • Date met Tearer at the abandoned factory last night. There, he witnessed a figure running away that looked like Ryuki from behind. However, he can’t be confident it was Ryuki. He hasn’t heard anything from Bibi about what happened after, including the Psync with Tearer (because she lost consciousness). Additionally, Date doesn’t think Bibi is related to Mizuki.


  • Aiba is currently in Date’s eye socket because Bibi (Masked Woman) is unwell. When Bibi went to the abandoned factory in Side Mizuki Chapter 4, Aiba was in her eye socket. There, Ryuki stunned her and she ceased functioning. She not see Ryuki. Then, Bibi went to Saito’s hideout, and Aiba was restored. Bibi had no time to tell Aiba about Ryuki before Psyncing. Therefore, Aiba did not witness Ryuki’s betrayal and does not know.


  • Mizuki heard about Kizuna’s disappearance from Riichi after 23:00 last night. After that, she searched for Kizuna throughout the night, leading to the present. She was not present for the events of c440 and thus does not know (nor has Date told her).

だって手水舎でおへそ洗わなきゃいけないでしょ? Mizuki: Because you need to clean your belly button with the holy water, right? //前に伊達に教えられた嘘をまだ信じている She still believes the lie Date told her before.


  • Ryuki is called to the west cathedral by someone (Tearer). Tama is short-circuited by electromagnetic waves and ceases functioning. At the same time, Ryuki loses consciousness. (Tama doesn't remember the events at the west cathedral because she couldn't back herself up underground.) Tearer takes Tama. Tearer holds her hostage and threatens Ryuki to do as he says.


  • Kizuna, Iris, Amame, and Lien eat at Matsushita Diner. This is in the past, so it's not at Sunfish Pocket, and Amame is there. The four of them watched the QR video together. There is no brainwashing effect.


  • Kizuna and the others disperse and each head home. On her way home, Kizuna is abducted by Tearer's armed forces and taken to the west cathedral. The video doesn't cause her disappearance.

[After 23:00]

  • Riichi, concerned that his daughter has not returned home, contacts Lien and her other friends: Iris, Amame, 12-year-old Mizuki, Ota. Lien says, "What, she hasn't come home!?" Riichi reports to the police.
  • Lien contacts Date and Quartz to ask for their cooperation in the search for Kizuna. (c435)
  • Bibi heads to the abandoned factory based on Kizuna's smartphone GPS. At the time, Kizuna's smartphone was still on. (c440)

(Ryuki is already in the abandoned factory with Tearer at this time.)

Person in the hologram:

  • There are no police or forensic officers, because Tokiko will be killed in the future.
  • The glass doll that should have been broken in Side Ryuki Chapter 2 has been restored. Naturally, it has retained its original form because Ryuki Chapter 2 takes place in the future.
Supplement: What Ryuki knows (Connection to Side Mizuki Chapter 4)
  • Ryuki knows that Tearer kidnapped Kizuna. Because he met Tearer at the cathedral, he realizes that NAIX is directly connected to her disappearance.
  • He doesn't know about the hidden elevator in the president's office, because this is the past.
  • In Side Mizuki Chapter 4, he followed the west staircase to the west cathedral.

They said "a suspicious man in an iron mask is at the Sejima residence"...



From Iris.

Date knows the man in the iron mask is Tearer because they met in Side Mizuki Chapter 4 (M1).

* Supplement: Hiding that Tearer is the mistress's child

In the current Somnium version, Tearer says that he is the mistress's child, but this will be cut.

  • Supplement: Ryuki and the cathedral

In gameplay up to this point, Ryuki has visited the (east) cathedral in Chapter 2 (in the present time). But, he has also been to the (west) cathedral in Side Mizuki Chapter 4 M1 (in the past). So, he knows that the abyss of nine Xs is the cathedral.

  • Supplement: Tama and the cathedral

Tama has been to the west cathedral in Side Mizuki Chapter 4 M1, but she was broken by an electromagnetic shockwave. Since the cathedral is underground, she could not transmit a backup of her memories there. Therefore, Tama doesn't know about the cathedral. (This also means she has no memory of Tearer being the man in the iron mask. But, she saw him in Iris's Wink Psync as well as the regular Psync, so she knows now.)

Line (JP) Line (EN) Comment Translation
くそっ、ふざけやがって…! Ryuki: Damn it, you've gotta be kidding me! //龍木がテアラァと会ったのは大聖堂。まさにその場所こそが処刑場だったから。 The cathedral is where Ryuki met Tearer. Of course that's where the execution chamber is.


Tearer's instructions to Ryuki were to lead Date here. In other words, Date is the only target, and the other three are unnecessary. Of course, Ryuki doesn't know about the explosion that will occur later, but he has a faint feeling that something bad might happen. So, Ryuki doesn't want to get the others involved if possible.
Line (JP) Line (EN) Comment Translation
俺は…ただ… Date: I just... //伊達はゆうべ(みずき編4章M1にて)廃工場から逃げて行ったのが、龍木だったのではないかとほぼ感づいている。 Date almost thinks that Ryuki was the one who fled from the abandoned factory last night (in Side Mizuki Chapter 4 M1).
じゃあ、失踪者を皆殺しにするっていうのも… Ryuki: You aren't killing the people who vanished...? //3章でイリスや応太から聞いた話のこと。亜麻芽『ニルヴァーナ…集められて…みんな死ぬ』のことではない。 He heard [the rumor about missing persons] from Iris and Ota in Chapter 3. This isn't about Amame's "Nirvana...Collected...Genocide."

龍木、お前だったんじゃないか…? Date: Was it you that ran away, Ryuki...? //みずき編4章M1のこと。プレイヤーには意味不明ですが意図的なものです。 This is about Side Mizuki Chapter 4 M1. This will make no sense to the player, but it is intentional.

//※タマが龍木の妄想を否定しなかった(妄想に付き合ってやっていた)のはそのため。 That's why Tama didn't deny Ryuki's delusions (she went along with them)
(Nakazawa) Ryuki's mind lives 6 years in the past, so he thinks Mizuki is asking about the incident when his brother was run over by a dump truck 6 years ago (12 years before the present time).


// 重要なのは、c275は過去時間(6年前)で、こちらは現在時間ということ。

The anti-intruder gas used in c275 isn't used here because it was out of order...or something? If that's the reason, it's really just for convenience, but it's important to note that c275 is in the past (6 years ago), and this scene in the present. If the time were consecutive, it would look like a mistake in the story, but maybe the sense of incongruence could hint that days 1 and 2 are not back to back. It's tricky because it goes from past (strong security measures) to present (weakened security measures).

* Psyncer: Mizuki

  • Subject: Kizuna

  • Location: Garden of the orphanage Aioen

  • Before the Psync

When Mizuki went to Horadori Institute to look for Shoma, Kizuna was there for some reason. She wouldn't say why she was there. When Mizuki tried to Wink Psync, she saw Chikara doing something suspicious. He was killed 6 years ago...does Kizuna know something? For that reason, she decided to Psync.

  • In her heart

Kizuna saw her father's (Riichi's) journal this morning. There, things like, "Mizuki went through genome editing at Horadori Institute" were written. Unable to believe it, she went to the institute herself to investigate. Since her father Riichi is a large shareholder in the institute, she thought she could get access to their data by giving his name.

  • In her heart

For 6 years from the age of 9, Kizuna lived in the same house with a certain girl (Bibi). They were the same age, and very good friends. They did all kinds of things together in this playground. It was so fun. Kizuna adored the girl and called her "Big Sis."

  • In her heart

I do love Lien. He has been with me for six years, but it doesn't mean we are actually dating. Lien has been truly helpful, taking care of me in many ways. But...

  • In her heart

My body has become this way (half paralyzed). If I get together with Lien, I'll only cause him trouble. That's why I won't date him. Of course, marriage is out of the question!

  • In her heart

But... Even so... I truly...

  • Branch: No

  • Contents

Fun memories with certain girl (Bibi).

  • Final facts revealed

Kizuna's father's (Riichi's) journal. It says, "inhumane genome editing experiments were conducted at Horadori's laboratory."

Supplement: This is the past.

Memo: Relevant connections

  • Ryuki on the 11th, Side Ryuki: He discovered Chikara's body at Sekiba High.
  • Bibi on the 11th, Side Ryuki: She felt depressed after learning that she didn't have long to live. (Seen in Ryuki Chapter 4 R2)

Memo: Personal memorandum
Bibi was trying to obtain evidence that the Horadori Institute was repeating their illegal genome editing experiements. However, Chikara was killed at that time, so she decided to put her evidence gathering on hold and pursue the HB case. (During her investigation, she might come to learn about the Horadori Institute...)

Right now, Bibi is depressed because the doctor told her she didn't have long to live. But, the player might think she's in shock after learning about the genome editing and that Shoko and Renju aren't her real parents.
