To begin, select a character from the beginning screen. Once you are in this screen,
we can quickly get you your first achievement. Select the 6th option on the right (character options). Then select the second option from the top (option 6b from tips) for costumes. From here, simply select the top option and then choose the costume below to change outfits. Once your character concludes dialog and the game saves, you will receive this achievement:
Now we begin your character's progression. Start by choosing the exercise menu (Menu 1), then selecting the first exercise. Complete Exercise routine 1 if possible to an S rank to earn this achievement:
If you are unable to attain this achievement your first try, don't worry. You will have plenty of attempts at all S ranks during each phase, across all four characters.
Once the exercise routine 1 is complete, you will unlock dance mode (Menu 3). We will begin the Dance Level grind. Select the Dance menu, then select the first routine. You will unlock this upon completing your first dance routine,
and this if you S rank it:
As you continue, it is best to S rank the routines, as two S ranks will level the entire experience bar for dance. This will eliminate excessive attempts, but limit the sub-scenario count. I personally continued leveling the Dance Level to at least level 8. You can continue to level to 12+max in phase one if you wish, but it's not necessary yet. If you S rank dance routines 4, 7, and 12 and gain stamps along the way, you will earn these:
Once you are at least at Dance Level 8, we will check your sub-scenario count. Choose the character options menu (Menu 6), then select the first option (Menu 6a). The top row of scenarios are the main level progression scenarios. You will receive one of these when you max out your Action Level instead of a sub-scenario. The second set, 3 rows of 10, are the sub-scenarios. Row one is phase one, row two is phase two, and row three is phase three. The goal is to get the sub-scenario count to 8-10 before progressing the Action Level to 6.
At this point, if you stopped at Dance Level 8, you can now do more Dance Levels to either Dance Level 12+Max until you get 10 sub-scenarios or you can switch to completing Exercise routines until level 6, checking sub-scenario progress every few attempts. If you reach level 5 and a half bar of experience, you can choose to quit exercise routines to slow Action Level progress while receiving sub-scenarios. You can either end phase one with the 10 sub-scenarios or begin phase two getting the 10th sub-scenario. It's all about maxing attempts and sub-scenarios per phase to save as much effort as possible. Quitting out of routines will net sub-scenarios, but will miss out on stamps that can be grinded out later.
For your first character, I would focus on S ranking dance routines 1,3,7, and 12 for the achievements before moving on to power leveling Action Level. For newer players, this will net stamps and sub-scenarios. Note, if you hit 10 sub-scenarios and your Dance level is under 10, I would switch to completing the exercises for Action Levels. If you continue to Dance Level 12+max, you will likely earn or be close to this:
Once you switch to exercises in Menu 1 to power level Action Level to level 6, attempt to S rank all seven. Remember, each exercise unlocks once you A rank the current highest routine. This would net you:
Phase two begins once the player hits Action Level 6. Your ideal stats at this point should include all of the S rank achievements for Dance and Exercise, Action Level 6, and Dance Level 8+. If you haven't completed maxing out your Dance Level (making it to Dance Level 12 then maxing out the experience bar to MAX), now would be the time to do it. It should not level your Action Level too high, giving you plenty of time to complete Performance Mode. I would recommend finishing Dance before moving on to Performance Mode, as they both need to be maxed before hitting Action Level 11.
Once Dance Level is maxed (level 12+max), we will move on to Performance Mode. Choose Menu 4, then select the first performance routine. Once you complete the first routine, you will earn this:
Continue to level up your Performance Level to 4+max. If you can S rank all four levels of Performance Mode, you will earn these:
It is likely the player will also record 10 stamp sheets completed once you finish leveling both Dance and Performance Levels netting this:
Once both Dance and Performance Levels are at Max, you will want to check your sub-scenario count again. Ideally, you want to be at 9-10 for Phase two (18-20 combined). If you are in that range, you can either go back to power leveling Action Level through exercises, or you can move on to activities (Menu 2). By the time you finished all the required leveling to unlock phase three, you should have unlocked all activities available. These activities will level up the Action Level similar to exercises, but only the highest level activity will net the most stamps. Your first activity will unlock this:
Complete all 3 stages of each of the four activities and score S ranks on the endless modes (reaching high score thresholds), you will net these:
Phase three begins once the player reaches Action Level 11 and both Dance and Performance are MAXED. If you did not max these ranks, the story will end, locking phase three. Your current stats should include all S rank achievements, Action Level 11, Dance 12+max, and Performance 4+max.
In phase three, we are simply power leveling Action Level to 15+max. If you have 18-20 sub-scenarios, you will likely get the 5-7 needed quickly while power leveling Action Levels. Once you hit 25 sub-scenarios, you will unlock this:
Now would be a good time to revisit S ranks you missed while leveling Action Level.
Power leveling to 15+max will net the true ending, unlocking this:
Phase four is clean up. You will clean up all S ranks missed while scoring as many stamps as possible. The absolute fastest way to earn stamps is grinding exercise routine 1. This routine is quite easy to S rank and can be done in 1 minute 30 seconds (including load times). If you would rather progress quickly, you can skip the S ranks, as you will have 3 more shots at doing this on your other character runs. Knock out miscellaneous achievements if you have not already done so along the way.
Playing Exercise Mode, Activity Mode, Dance Mode, and Performance Mode in succession should net this:
Selecting Finale Mode after completing the True Ending in Menu 5, then starting the performance will net this:
Playing the game two days in a row, scoring stamps will net this:
Finally, once you finished grinding all 20 stamp sheets, you will earn this:
Congratulations, you are officially 25% (1/4 characters) complete!
You will now repeat Phases one-four again for the other three characters. If you have not completed all S ranks, now would be a good opportunity at multiple attempts. Following the exact same steps for each character, you will net these likely in this order:
Congratulations, you are officially 50% (2/4 characters) complete!
Congratulations, you are officially 75% (3/4 characters) complete!
Congratulations, you are officially 100% (4/4 characters) complete! 1000/1000 Gamerscore and 50/50 Achievements!
