The party composition is suitable for Chapter 3: The Town at Rock Bottom up to Chapter 5: The Liumang Man.” When getting started, each character starts at a low level and new classes can be unlocked on Chapter 5. Focus on raising each character’s level with respect to his class. In order to switch classes, you need to work on the character’s bond level. Capitalize on boosting the bond gauge through battles and then swing by the Survivor snack bar to reach the next bond level once the meter is filled up.

Chapters 5 to 7

As you approach Chapter 7: The Spider’s Web swap one of the members to Eri Kamataki after unlocking Chapter 5’s Business Management. Eri Kamataki is a powerhouse who boasts high attack and powerful knife skills. In addition, after Saeko’s level reaches 15, have her change class to the Idol. Idols are great support classes that can restore health through “Magical Song.”

Middle Game

Chapters 7 to 10

By Chapter 7: The Spider’s Web, each of your party members should have access to more classes. Among these classes, the Riot Police and Hostess are suitable for Koichi and Eri respectively. The combination of these two classes serve pivotal roles for the boss fight against Reiji Ishioda in Chapter 9: House of Cards.

Continue working on Eri Kamataki’s bond level through the company management. The goal is to reach at least the 50th rank to boost her bond level.

Chapters 10 to 12

The boss Majima and Saejima who you’ll face in Chapter 12 are weak to fire and cold elements which means you need to focus on improving your magic type allies. Tianyou Zhao who becomes an ally on Chapter 11 can deal powerful fire damage using the extreme skill “Phoenix Sword Extreme” is a suitable ally for this fight. Meanwhile, have Yu Namba upgrade to Host class to take advantage of his high magic damage using cold skills. These two characters can amplify your damage output which helps immensely in taking down the upcoming Chapter’s boss.

Late Game

Chapter 13

Gangster and Enforcer classes are useful against the upcoming boss Jo Sawashiro because of their blade and thunder attacks respectively. Having the support of the Idol helps keep the party alive. Don’t forget to work on your company management ranking to unlock Kasuga’s Satellite Laser extreme, a skill that inflicts tons of damage to the boss.

Chapter 14

Have Nanba take the role of Host and Joon-gi serve as Hitman since Chapter 14: Passing the Torch‘s boss (Kazuma Kiryu) is weak to cold attacks. Among the notable skills to have include the Spread Ice extreme, a powerful cold skill that can be used by the Host class. However, even with the Idol supporting from the back, there is a risk that the spell’s damage won’t be enough. To compensate for the lack of damage, you must pair another powerful damage dealer like Joon-gi. Use items like Poseidon Power to kick his firepower up a notch and use recovery items when the heals don’t trigger on time.

Chapter 15

The party must carry classes that have access to thunder skills, a good option is to have Zhao switch class to the Enforcer. This class learns the skill Hangup, a thunder attack that offers heavy damage against the chapter’s boss. The crucial turn in the boss fight appears when the boss’ health turns critically low. Since the boss’ attack can easily incapacitate the Idol, you need to keep her alive using recovery items.
