Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei walkthrough and guide

Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei is out in Europe today! Our full review is on the way — we want to make sure we’re being thorough about it! — so in the meantime we thought we’d provide you with a guide to get the most out of the game, just like we did with even if TEMPEST.

This guide will show you how to unlock all CGs and where to find each bad ending for all the love interest routes. We’ve structured the guide according to Idea Factory International’s recommended route order.

Suggestions: The game allows for immediate skipping to the next choice after clearing a route once to help you collect the rest of the endings more quickly. In the common route, prioritise balancing out the main character’s three parameters (Strength, Knowledge and Kindness), otherwise you’ll experience repeated bad ends until you finally reach safety within a route. For all bad endings, simply select the choices that give no affection to properly advance through them.

For any further help, feel free to get in touch. Happy gaming!

Noritsune Taira

Birushana guide

Silently watch the samurai.

Why wait? Let’s just finish this now.

As a Genji, I must talk with him.

I don’t fear the Heike.

Great, thanks.

Our priority is to capture Benkei.

We’re stronger together.

You don’t need to apologize.

I can’t allow this to happen.

What happened to the Heike?

I have to make up my mind…

I suppose I should thank you.

I would try to avoid a fight.

You’re out of your mind.

I’m weak when it comes to my mother.

I want you to live.

Can’t say I’m surprised…

I was hoping I’d find you here…

You can’t say things like that…

What is it, Noritsune?

These selections will clear the happy ending. Now go to the flowchart from the main menu and reload chapter 12-1 to obtain the Tragic Love Ending by selecting options that cause affection and parameters to be low.

Shungen

Birushana guide

Silently watch the samurai.

There’s got to be a way out of this…

As a Genji, I must talk to him.

I don’t want a war with the Heike.

I feel the same way about you, Shungen!

Our priority is to capture Benkei.

We’re stronger together.

I’m just glad to know she’s alright.

What good is there in being Genji?

Thank you…

I want to live up to their expectations…

Would you… hold my hand?

I rely on you too much.

I feel so relieved.

You should be more confident, Shungen.

It’s so embarrassing…

Nodded.

I’m sorry.

I’ll keep his heart next to mine.

Did it bother you?

I can’t wait either.

Let me see your face.

No…

This will clear the happy ending. Now go to the flowchart from the main menu and reload chapter 12-1 for the Tragic Love Ending by selecting options that cause all parameters to be low.

Benkei Musashibo

Silently watch the samurai.

There’s got to be a way out of this…

I can’t live up to the Genji name…

I don’t fear the Heike.

Great, thanks!

Our priority is to capture Benkei.

Let’s split up.

Why must I bear the name of Genji?

I am who I am!

If you want to know for sure, fight me!

Having a vassal is too much for me…

I will not submit to such tyranny.

I’d like to believe it’s fate too.

You… don’t look like you’ve slept a wink.

You must have been very lonely…

I wish I had a heart as big as yours.

It’s all thanks to you!

I was just being naïve…

I had a feeling you’d say that.

Can you make it, Benkei?

I need Benkei to support me.

You didn’t have to do it alone.

I’ll be fine as long as you’re with me.

As my vassal or…

Yoritomo Minamoto

Birushana guide

Silently watch the samurai.

I have no choice. I have to accept…

Just what do you mean by that?

I don’t fear the Heike.

Great, thanks.

I don’t care about my mother.

Let’s split up.

Why must I bear the name of Genji?

That’s none of your business!

If you want to know for sure, fight me!

I don’t think I beat you…

I can’t cause trouble for Kurama.

Well, I don’t believe in fate.

It’s all just too sad…

What terrible things did he see…

It can’t be helped.

I’m ready to fight for my brother.

Take it easy.

I’m terrified of myself.

I’m terribly sorry.

That’s why you came after me?

It must have been terrible for you…

Put my hand on my chest

Tomomori Taira

Birushana guide

Silently watch the samurai.

There’s got to be a way out of this…

Just what do you mean by that?

But the Heike aren’t afraid of me!

Great, thanks.

I’m sorry… but I have to go see her…

Guess I’ll have to fight to find out.

That’s none of your business!

Shut your mouth!

You should think more seriously…

I can’t cause trouble for Kurama.

Well, I don’t believe in fate.

I’ll face him down.

Don’t worry about it.

Is Tomomori himself trapped by fate…?

I never would have expected this…

I glared back at him…

I’ve known him forever!

For the remaining CGs under the “Other” category in the album, play through the “what if” scenarios that have now been unlocked from each route. These scenarios have no selections to be made in them. The final CG will unlock upon obtaining these ones and your CG gallery will be 100% completed!
