Completed and discovered the True Ending.

You may get Ending 5 first, just go back through again for Ending 1.
However it's probably a good idea to go through once before trying this, you'll need a decent weapon that is levelled and some knowledge of battle and where characters and places are.
Use BACK to skip cutscenes.
I did this on Easy with a powered up sword (110Atk,90Def). The end bosses can be quite tough with a weak weapon.

---Basic Method---
Shinnosuke has complete Trust
Yuma has partial Trust
You must speak with Setseun
You must discover Kota's Dagger
You must sacrifice yourself at the end and be rescued.

---Advanced Walkthrough---
1) Kuchihagahara
You'll be found by two villagers, answer;
-"I've been better"
2) Takatane
Find Kota in the rice paddy, answer;
-"Calm down, kid"
3) Castle Amana
Speak with the Recruiter, answer
-"Yes, I have skills to show"
Now win the tournement
4) Castle Minori
Speak with the Guard Leader
-"Why don't you use me"

-Exit Area on foot and return immediately for next Event-

5) Castle Minori
Speak to Yuma, answer;
-"You're working hard?"
Speak to him after this and ask;
"Brother and Father?"

-Note do not return to Castle Minori or an auto event will occur and ruin your ending-

6)The Road
Find Setseun for Event, then speak to him until he leaves

-You may return to Takatane now to sleep until night, you MAY get a Rice Tax Event-

7) Kuchihagahara (Night)
You'll see Yuma and Shinnosuke fight (this may not occur if Rice Tax Event did)
8) Kuchihagahara (Night)
You'll see an Event betweem Shinnosuke and Osei
9) Kuchihagahara (Night)
Speak with Shinnosuke, answer;
-"Sakura... Sakurai?"
10) Castle Amana
Find Shinnosuke for a Job protecting supplies, answer;
Kill enough people for them to run away and speak with Shinnosuke for a reward.
11) Takatane
Speak to Kota in the rice paddy again, answer;
-"You're pretty good"
12) Castle Amana
Head into the Castle to see an Event between Shinnosuke and Kirie. When Kirie asks you, answer;
-"Oh ... it's nothing ..."
13) Kuchihagahara (Night)
Speak to Shinnosuke, answer;
-"Of course."

- Nobunaga Event -

14) Takatane
Head to the starting farm for an Event with Osei and Mumechika
15) Castle Minori
Run up the stairs and meet with a fleeing Genjuro, choose option 3 "Okay" to let him run away.
Around the corner for an Event with Shinnosuke
Enter the Castle and upstairs to find Yuma, answer
"You're okay with dieing for nothing?"
Now fight Yuma with BLUNT attacks. Then escape.
16) Takatane
Before entering the farm, speak with Shinnosuke, answer;
-"Of course I will"
Event in farm, answer;
-"I don't want to revive Sakurai Clan"
Shuzen soldiers turn up, answer;
-"I'll take the dagger"
17) You'll be at Kuchihagahara, tied up, answers are;
-"Do what must be done."
-"Stop! Stay back!"
-"Shinnosuke... Everyone..."

Big battle now, just use Chain Kills to kill about 50 enemy.
Now head to Amana Castle and run upstairs until you meet Shuzen Bodyguards with the big hats. Kill all these to open the castle doors. Higher still to find Kirie, kill him, ignoring the other enemy. Once Kirie is dead, the others will disappear and YOU MUST KEEP SHINNOSUKE AND YUMA ALIVE.
Higher still for the final boss.

The True Ending takes place infront of the former head of Sakurai clans grave. You'll have Shinnosuke, Yuma, Osei, Kota, Mumechika and Setseun with you.

Achievement pops on the record screen where you get the Samurai Points and Title.
