Tokyo Overworld Map

From Shinjuku, head west, then north and you should notice a large poison swamp to the east–past here is the way to Ikebukuro.

To begin to unseal Ikebukuro, we must first find it. To first find it, we have to get there. To get there, you have got to stop reading such rambling, indirect sentences like this.

Anyways, from Shinjuku, backtrack west and north to the area of poison water pools. Cross the massive one heading east. At the end of it is a bit of a crossroads made literally with road - just to the east is the ferryman/Hunter. Enter the area nearby to find a tunnel leading to Ikebukuro. Take the tunnel there now.

On the other side, head northwest and along the road to reach a Bead . Head back southeast, then onto the bronze bridge curving around the set of buildings, next to the luminescent green one. Enter the area at the end of the path.

Ikebukuro: Sunshine Front

Upon your arrival, feel free to speak with nearby members of the Ring of Gaea before approaching the wall of flames to the northwest. However, you will end up finding it blocked. A woman comes by, noting that there is a Domain past there.

This woman thinks you are here to take the head of Xi Wangmu for riches; she tells you to bug off. She then lets loose with the idea that the Ring of Gaea is unable to open it without the Jirae Talisman. Well, nothing to do bu– Oh, yes, we have one such Jirae Talisman. Go ahead and use it, then.

And so, the flames disperse, as does the Talisman. The woman introduces herself as Kaga (not to you), opting to go ahead with her group; if Xi Wangmu is slain, so, effectively, is the barrier around Ikebukuro. She again tells you to buzz off before leaving.

Head northwest and examine the driver side of the car to find a 2-Star Commodity and a 2-Star Document .

Ikebukuro: 60 Street Crosswalk

There’s not much to do here. Go north to the car, picking up two individual Nerve Gases from the dead bodies on the way. Examine the driver side of said car to find a 2-Star Commodity . Turn around and head south along the western wall to soon find a useful Balm of Rising . Go back to the previous area now.

Ikebukuro: Sunshine Front

If you really want to, you can cross straight through the poisoned water. Just make sure you have a method to cure poison!

Head south along the left wall and you’ll notice some gaps in the railing. Jump down, using the second of these gaps. Upon hitting the ground, head far to the north to find an Ag Incense . From there, follow the northern wall eastern to find some relics: three 1-Star Documents , then a 1-Star Leisure .

Now, to the south, you’ll find a ton of toxic waste. You can carefully skirt around it by staying on the south side of the guardrails to the east and mostly sidling along them.

Then you can pass to the other side, where you can easily find a Light Grimoire in the eastern corner. Head along the southern wall until you find a demon’s Domain in a room.

Xi Wangmus Domain

Within the Domain, you’ll find that you can navigate with the map for once! There’s not a lot here, mostly rooms with NPCs to speak with. At the forks, go east, north, east, east, west, and west to quickly find Kaga and some demons. She generously gives you one of the two demons to slay.

Boss: Qing Niguai

**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
28 Holy N/A Dark Light

After the battle, Walter is in awe at Kaga’s ability to handle the demon one-handed. (As if it were strong.) She asks your names, which you give, before leaving. After the battle, heal up if needed, then go forward. Save and enter the doorway.

Boss: Xi Wangmu

**Level** **Race** **Weakness** **Resistance** **Nullifies**
30 Lady Force Physical Light, Dark

At the end of the first turn, though, members of the Ring of Gaea arrive, attacking Xi Wangmu directly … before getting absolutely slaughtered and, like all slaughtered things, eaten.

But their sacrifice comes to be Xi Wangmu’s undoing - even eaten, they manage to weaken her from within, allowing you to do a much more reasonable amount of damage to her.

Beating Xi Wangmu will mark the end of the quest and the gaining of a crapload of EXP. So, umm, back to exploration, is it?

Ikebukuro: Sunshine Front

Once outside, cross the poison heading west - or backtrack the long way around to the southwest corner. In the fenced-in alcove are two items, one a Chakra Pot , one a 2-Star Leisure . That’ll be about it for here, though.

You can exit to the world map to the southeast to find a 2-Star Document and a 1-Star Commodity . Otherwise, exit to the southwest.

The Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is a peaceful land whose inhabitants are rigidly divided into two castes: the common Casualry and the elite Luxurors. Normally, it is impossible to transcend the class you were born into; that is, unless you are chosen at the age of eighteen by “the Gauntlet Rite” to become a Samurai, one of the sworn protectors of Mikado. You are chosen to become a Samurai, and learn a truth kept hidden from the general population: that beneath Mikado lies Naruku, a realm of demons which the Samurai are tasked with suppressing.
