Day 1 Morning: Go to the Kurou Residence and join them (avoid confrontation with Tsubohachi), do the job for Shiretoko.
Day 1 Afternoon: Go to the Akadama Clan's mansion and join them, when Kitcho and Karibe are going to fight tell Kitcho that you will take care of Karibe. Fight Karibe until he is almost dead then talk to him to make him give up. Remember: DO NOT KILL HIM!
Day 1 Night: Go to the shrine to interrupt Murasaki and Inokashira's meeting. It doesn't matter what you answer on the first two choice but on the third answer "Please pardon her".
Day 2 Morning: Go to the Akadama clan mansion to join them in the fight against the government. You will go to the shrine with Kitcho and kill Hyuga. Then go back to the mansion to tell everyone; fight with the Akadama clan until Day 2 Night.
Day 2 Night: After joing Tesshin and Kitcho at the bridge, fight through the waves of Government soldiers. After a while, the commander will retreat to the shrine. Follow him,answer against his proposition, and kill him. (This is the only ending where you can get his sword so LEAVE AN OPEN SLOT!)
Day 1 Morning-Afternoon: Do whatever you want to to advance to Day 1 Night. (Go to the shrine during the Afternoon to get a helpful hint from Toyoko)
Day 1 Night: Accept Suzu's plea for help. You can find Don in a back room of the main house. Also, whatever you do DO NOT confront Tsubohachi while in the house. After you exit you will meet Tsubohachi at the exit, fight him but DO NOT KILL HIM! When in the fields, you can avoid the fight with Tesshin by running along the left wall. Exit the plains to escape.
Day 2 Morning-Afternoon:
Talk to Dojima in front of the restaurant and accept his request. Fight with him and Don until you reach the residence. Once there run inside the main house and find Tsubohachi, tell him Suzu has been captured by the government. Both of you will head out to defeat the government army. Kill the commander to get this ending.
Do everything you can to help Suzu, Don, Kurikichi, and Dojima. Finally, accept Dojima's request and defeat the government army without having Tsubohachi help.
Stay with the Akadama clan throughout the game and help them defeat the government army to get this ending.
Stay with the Kurou family throughout the game and help them defeat the government army to get this ending.
Advance exactly the same as Ending 1, but when you meet the commander at the shrine at the end; accept his offer of joining the government.
