Trigger Finger: Obtained five Cinematic Bonus rewards

This achievement is awarded for completing all 5 cinematic action sequences (CAS) perfectly. As there are only 5 available, if you fail at one you will have to close the gate and re-do all story-related actions up to the point of the CAS, or reset your console and replay your battle, I will make recommendations for each sequence. Be vigilant, and until the screen comes up saying "PERFECT!", don't look away or put down your controller.

The 5 CAS locations and button inputs are as follows:

Bresha Ruins 005AF - Paradox Alpha
3rd CAS: A (repeatedly)
Easy to close gate and re-load. Will have to when defeating Atlas full strength anyway.
REWARD: Fragment Crystal

Bresha Ruins 005AF - Atlas
Easy to close gate and re-load. Will have to when defeating Atlas full strength anyway.
REWARD: Silver Gear

Sunleth Waterscape 300AF - His Royal Ripeness (opening fight)
1st CAS: X
2nd CAS: UP, X, X (repeatedly), B (repeatedly), RIGHT
Easy to close gate and re-load, it is the first event in this area
REWARD: Crystal Heart

Academia 400AF - Zenobia
UP, LEFT + B, RIGHT + B, RIGHT, A (repeatedly)
Much easier to reload your console and replay the battle. Fighting back through Academia would be a chore.
REWARD: Crystal Petal

Augusta Tower 200AF - Proto fal'Cie Adam
RIGHT, UP, RIGHT + B, A (repeatedly) + RIGHT, A (repeatedly)
Again, much easier to reload your save before the boss than complete the tower again, however you will have to fight this boss again once you acquire the paradox scope, so the choice is yours.
REWARD: Crystal Apple

Each perfect completion also comes with a bonus adornment at the end of battle for your captured monsters. Good Luck!

If you aren't sure what cinematic bonus(es) you are missing you can go to the adornment list in your inventory, and see which of the adornment rewards you are missing (the rewards are listed under each section above). Thanks to Espio Idsavant for submitting this information.
