GAME INTRO


Nov. 10, 2010

Researchers are having a conversation and a man on a black suit comes. The 
lady (I believe is the woman in the first intro FMV Dr.Takaoki, I'm not 
sure.) went off walking on the hallway, at this point a T-Rex is on the 
loose, when the two are talking a sudden tremor occurs. They heard the T-
Rex is on the loose on their COM links and they deployed a mech to finish 
it off. The mech shot some rounds and the T-Rex is dead. I cant believe it 
they killed an endangered or even extinct specie, don't worry I think its 
an artificial one they can make another one, common the year's 2010 what 
else can they do. Now after the incident, Dr.Takaoki and the guy on the 
black suit are talking, military soldiers in blue weird uniform is going to 
arrest the guy on the black suit. He resisted arrest and got shot badly and 
he is gone Dr.Takaoki gave them the fierce look. Then ???


 
March 1, 2018

At this scene computerized voices are having a conversation and it's about 
Athena. Her DNA structures flies over the screen and also her personal 
data. They interest something on her and I believe you know what it is, her 
strong psychic powers.

Now Athena's scene starts, school session is over and everybody is ready to 
take off. Athena signs off and she is walking by the hallway to the exit, 
her friends bid her farewell. She looks at the sunset and now Chapter 1 
starts.

    THE BORDER BETWEEN ORDINARY AND UNORDINARY


Here Athena is about to go home, but a friend passed by worried. Think she 
forgot or lost something on the class. Follow her, when your about to go to 
the hallway entrance a fellow student carrying books talks to Athena, after 
a short talk proceed following her friend Rika. At the hallway go to 1-C 
check the map, talk to the guy on the purple suit and he will give Athena 
some rice cakes (not sure). Then go to 1-B and Athena finds a guy talking 
by himself, the guy was Shii Kensou. He didn't notice that Athena is 
listening and then he found out that she was behind. He was embarrassed and 
went outside. Now go outside of the class and the schoolmaster (Sensei) 
talks to Athena in brief and leaves. At the very edge at the North in the 
hallway you will see a man at that corner, talk to him but he leaves. You 
will see something shinny in the floor, pick it up and you will receive a 
can of soda. Now head to 1-A and you will find Athena's friend Rika and she 
goes out of the class. You will see something shinning in the room pick it 
up and it's a box of sweets. Across the room you will hear a heart beat go 
and look at the books of Rika on the desk and the heartbeat gets stronger. 
This is where she learns her psychic power, you must press the triangle 
button on the curved line it doesn't matter if its not perfectly curved. 
But don't press the triangle button when it's a flat line she gets hurt 
that way. Now she learns her first psychic power on the game called -
PSYCHOMETRY. On her vision, she sees her friend opened a locker and saw 
Aqua Dino tickets then her vision took off, after that the main computer on 
the teachers desk was turned on by itself. Athena sees the password was 
typed by her own name the computer started going berserk and she hears a 
voice saying her name repeatedly. Now another vision takes place she is on 
very dark room and behind her appears a jester. She notice its presence and 
she swiftly looked at her back and the vision is gone. After that go to the 
ladies toilet and you will find a fellow student there after talking go 
outside and you will receive an info. Head back at 1-A and you will see 
Rika again and she will give Athena a key, now go to Rika's locker and open 
your items menu and scroll to the next page, highlight the key and pick the 
second option. When opened, Rika grabs the pendant and the Aqua Dino 
tickets. Rika is about to go out and the doors were locked due to closing 
time. Now go near at the flashing red lock at the door, you will see the 
flat lined bar activated and its ready for use her psychic power. You will 
see a vision something on the desk, go to that place and you will see 
something flashing take a look and you get a card key. Now use it to open 
the door. Go outside and Athena and Rika got out in relief, Rika again goes 
back I think in the class. The Sensei looks curiously at Athena at the 
second floor. Then a student passed by the Sensei with some bunch of heavy 
books, the Sensei pushes the girl intentionally and the books are falling 
at Athena. She reacts to it and her psychic power was activated again - 
PSYCHOSHIELD???. The books were shredded to pieces. Now Athena and Rika 
leaves the school and she is deeply thinking about the events of the day. 
Rika bugged Athena because she was thought day dreaming. At the end the 
Sensei saw what happened as if he knows something or maybe he does??? And 
Disc 1 ends. Isn't that fast, don't blame SNK for the long FMV's they were 
grrrreat.

______
DISC 2


Athena is waiting for Rika at Aqua Dino, she receives a phone call and its 
Rika screaming at full volume at the phone and people hearing it around 
Athena. She says, sorry she won't make it on time. So Athena goes alone at 
Aqua Dino. Now Chapter 2 starts.

    DOCTORED CREATURES IN ARTIFICIAL OCEAN


You are in the middle of the ocean on the elevator keep talking to every 
until the music changes and heart beats starts again. You will see the 
figure of the jester again talk at it. Its psychic learning again, now you 
will have the psychic power TELEPATHY. Now go near the man and you will see 
the psychic bar activated, use it to read his mind, after that read the 
woman's mind and suddenly a tremor occurs. The elevator is stuck, talk to 
everyone until an FMV starts. The dinosaur is attacking them, the glass is 
almost shattered, one more blow from the dinosaur will finish them all. Now 
keep talking to everyone until an FMV runs again. The dinosaur is going for 
the next blow everybody is scared and so is Athena. Now her psychic power 
is activated again, she will learn and use the TELEPORT. I am not sure if 
the others made it too. Now she will be on the ground and finally woke up. 
She is on 1A check the Map ( " - " on Japanese means one and " - " means 
two.) There is a save point here go near it and press Sqr to save. Before 
going to the exit you will see something shinning on the floor take it. 
It's a pendant (I think its Rika's) now when you exit you will be at 1B you 
will hear a heart beat again. On the very middle of the screen the 
heartbeat is strong, underneath the big rock on the middle look for the 
thing that connects to the pendant. If you do you will learn a new psychic 
power CLAIRVOYANCE. Athena sees her friend Rika and a guy stuck on the 
elevator. Now when walking by you will see the guy and the woman with 
Athena on the elevator they survived but where is the child? Now exit, go 
to 1C but don't go to the right side of the map yet talk to the people on 
the way and you will see the child also survived. Now go to 1D again talk 
to the people there, then go to the place on the left side on the map, 
check map. Once there push the box around until she is stuck and wait for 
the psychic bar to activate and use it to lift the boxes in the air. Now 
proceed on the other side, You will find Rika and the maintenance guy. They 
will tell Athena to switch open the elevator but it will not work. Now the 
guy tells Athena there is a switch she has to turn on, go to that place. 
Its now time to got to the other side, the right side " - ". Before going 
to the other side, you will meet up with Shii Kensou. This place has messed 
me up. But not to worry I'll try my best to make up this FAQ. Go to 2C and 
talk to the man standing next to the 2B entrance then go check the door on 
the right side and its locked. Now talk to the man again, he tells Athena 
to go to 2D and turn on the Aquarium power source it looks like a phone 
both. After turning it on go back to 2C and check the locked door. Then 
talk to the man again, he tells Athena go and get the password at the man 
on the lobby behind the desk on 2B don't forget the can of soda. Talk to 
him but he wont give the password, but you can use your psychic power to 
get the password. Go back at the locked door at 2C and enter the password, 
if typed and entered correctly a word will say "open", but it's not open 
yet, there is still more to do. Now talk to the man again, he will tell 
Athena to go to 2A and get the password from the woman there. When there 
talk to her but she wont give it too, but read here mind again with psychic 
powers and you will receive the password this time its short. Now head to 
1B then, the second time you talk to Shii Kensou he will give Athena a 
Nikuman "steamed meat bun". When your on 1B talk to the man on the 
telephone both like thingy and put the password, then it will say "open" 
again. Now go to 1C at the upper right corner you will find something 
flashing and it's a key. Now got to 2A and you see something flashing 
again, open the small locker with the new key you've got. You will receive 
the card key, now you can open the locked door finally. Then the jester 
Piero appears again to Athena and it disappears. Now go back to the locked 
door and open it. When Athena opens the door she will see the child named 
Masato handling the dying dinosaur, after they talked they will go in the 
door. Go upstairs take the doughnuts and save. Go to east door and when the 
elevator is found. Athena sends Masato on the surface to the elevator. 
After that continuously go Northeast and an FMV starts the water is going 
in and her friend Rika is in trouble. Check the power switch cabinet and 
you will see the fuse is destroyed, but Athena fixes it. After that 
everything is OK and you will hear a heart beat again, check the green 
bursting light and she will learn a new psychic power REPAIR then check 
Rika again on the green screen. Piero appears and attacks Athena and she 
defended herself. Piero blocks the door so Athena can't escape. This guy 
setup some moves to hurt Athena you have to choose from the five options to 
reach Piero but I believe it goes random (battle tip still under 
development) 



When you reach Piero she will now then learn her new psychic power 
SHOCK_WAVE. Now head South door, get the can of soda and a key. Then check 
all the fallen cabinets when Athena talks now use the new key and you will 
get an ID card and then use her psychic power on the place you found the ID 
card. She will see a file and then go to that place and look at the file 
and you will receive a password. Now head west door and input the password, 
when it opens use the ID card to go in. Got near at the desk and the 
psychic bar activates use it and Athena sees a vision next door. Get the 
book on the desk and read it. Now go to where the flashing red button 
between the monitor screens and look to it. You will see some photos and at 
the last page you will see the password 74321. Next go to the door behind 
the desk and go to the flashing square, then input the password you've got. 
Athena will get the gun and aims for the middle of the hole and water 
drains around Aqua Dino. Then she felt the presence of Rika and Rika is 
about to be attacked by the T-Rex. Now you have to TELPORT. Athena arrives 
on time and turned the big lizard into minced meat and Rika is stunned. 



A day has passed since the incident happened at Aqua Dino. Athena sees 
Rika            
she says Hi. But Rika didn't reply. Rika still can't believe what she saw.

    THE SUBWAY IS NOW FACING A CRISIS


Rika is still quiet, talk to her for a while then proceed to the next car 
going North check the map and talk to Shii Kensou on the right side when you 
enter and he will give Athena a Nikuman again. Then go to the third car, 
but before entering the train went on a complete stop. Check on Rika and 
help her up, then proceed going to the third car and pick up a bag of 
jellybeans and there is a save point here. Next got to fourth car and talk 
to the children, then go to the fifth car and pick up the rice cakes and 
proceed to the sixth car. Before entering there, Masato the boy appears at 
Athena and talks to her in a brief while and disappeared. Now at the sixth 
car you will find the next door closed shut, check the glowing red plate on 
the lower left. Athena sees the trains terminal is controlled by someone 
else, Piero appears and sets the controls and leave. Now Athena must stop 
the train. Now rush back and check everybody and Rika. You will find them 
either dead or unconscious, when you are about to check Rika Piero appears 
again. Piero turned the two guys into mindless zombies to attack Athena, 
Shii Kensou try to defend Athena but he was trampled down unconscious. You 
have to evade the two guys to check on Kensou and if you reached there and 
checked him OK go back to the position she was before. Later her psychic 
bar activates, use it to knock them down. I think you have to use it about 
three time to finish them. Athena is really exhausted.



Now Piero comes again and threw a ball of flame at Athena, but she has a 
force field and it bounced off and almost burned her friends. Rika was 
terrified and backed off, then car is starting to separate. Athena is 
calling upon Rika, but she ignored Athena. Athena is sad, Rika's car is 
separate and later she cried calling Athena's name. Now go back at the 
trains terminal check it then go to the place where the save point is and 
check and REPAIR the plate. Then go back at the trains terminal remember 
time is ticking. There check the terminal and Athena will look at her lower 
left, here you have to make everything zero complete. Here is a hint start 
at the very right side until going to the left, if you reach the last one 
on the left make the number counter to five, then the next to the last 
counter, and let it count again until the number on the last counter in the 
left turns into zero completely. Get out of there and the trains front 
separate and blow to bits. 



Later the maintenance and investigators have arrived. The schoolmaster 
"Sensei" is there, and he knew Athena is involved from the things happened.
Now the rescuers from W.A.R.M. found Athena and the rest will be found 
also.

    THE END OF THE EARTH


Athena appears on a bright pink glow and its only her spirit is on the 
lose. Now she is outside, you will notice all the people there are 
transparent too. Talk to them all then check the door where Athena came 
out. They are talking about a specimen AE-X04 ASUTORAIOSU and AE-Sb10 
PEROPUSU it involves the one that encounters Athena the Piero. Talk to the 
lady and the guy (They are the once on the games intro?) they wont talk at 
all. Later the guy in the black suit shot the researcher guy? Again check 
the door where Athena came out and she will see Masato again and talks to 
Athena. Then go to his very left side and talk to him, an FMV starts Masato 
talks about the specimens and the computer called Tantaros. After that they 
will be back where Athena is slept in, Masato speaks a few words and then 
everything disappeared



She was only dreaming? Shii Kensou was the first person she saw, Kensou was 
so happy he shook his friend hard. His friend leaves Kensou and Athena 
alone. Athena was also happy to see Kensou, suddenly Athena remember Rika 
stood up Ehh! straight on Kensou and asked about Rika. Kensou was so 
embarrassed to see Athena's chest her top cloth is almost falling each 
breath she takes (I cant look!) and Kensou turned back red on his face. 
Athena laughed. Now the Sensei enters the room and asked for Athena's 
condition and he saw Kensou there. Kensou says he was only visiting Athena. 
Now the Sensei leaves, Athena is very depressed Kensou talks to her but no 
response.


DISC 3


Back to school, a helicopter is patrolling the school. The Sensei receives 
a phone call and he is being watched and so as Athena.

    THE OPERATIONS OF THE CALCULATED RISK


Talk to all the people on the hallway, then go to 1-A and get the potato 
chips and talk to the girl there. Then go to 1-C and pick up some doughnuts 
and talk to the guy there. Now go to the main hall and pick up a can of 
soda. Now go to the second floor and go to its main hall pick up a 
strawberry drink. Then go to 3-B and talk to the people there and go to 3-A 
to pick up a can of soda. Then go to the next stairs going up. Talk to the 
doctor you see and go in to the first door you see 3-D and pick up the two 
cups of yogurt then talk to the guys. Now go to the chemistry room and talk 
to the teacher. Then go to the roof and pick up the rice cakes.


I really don't have any idea at this point check all the rooms talk to the 
people from bottom floor to top. Then go out from the main hall going to 
the exit. Athena finds Rika but still, Athena is ignored. Now Athena is in 
the rooftop sat down on the bench, depressed and thinking for what all 
happened. Then an explosion occurred, Athena met Piero again and his name 
was changed to Astraios (I think there are more of them?) Athena rushes 
down at the third floor and Astraios is there too. Now check the door on 
Athena's front and Astraios appears again go near the door. Use her 
psychic power to see what's on the other side, you will see bombs are wired 
to detonate. Next go to the other chemistry room and Astraios appears 
again go near the door and you will see a vision from the teachers desk 
computer and go there. Go near the computer and use her psychic power. A 
vision appears from Athena's home class, go to 1-A and open Rika's locker 
take the MO Disk and the two books? Then go back at the floor where the 
chemistry rooms are and go to the girls toilet take the washing liquid 
soap? (not sure) and the glass cleaner? (not sure). Now you have the two 
items found in the toilet. Go back at the chemistry room where the computer 
and Astraios is and insert the Boot Disk you've got from Rika's locker. 
Now you will ask what's the password? Now exit the computer and Astraios 
speaks and gives the clue from the two items you've got in the girls 
toilet. X and Z. What a joke, just put the password in the computer like 
this - combine X-Z together in the numbers on the password screen. Here are 
the numbers - 7895123 - TADA!!! See it looks like an X and Z together on 
password screen right? Now there's a clock ticking above the screen 
PANIC!PANIC!!PANIC!!! Calm down the problem will come later. Hurry and take 
the flashing object in the room and it's an Error Disk. Now go out and go 
to 3-D. On your way to 3-D check its window and you will see the psychic 
bar is activated, use it. You will see Astraios went in the room 3-D, 
now proceed going inside. Check the lockers and you will see something 
flashing. Take a look and you will get the Rescue Disk. Now go to 1-A and 
put the Error Disk in the computer. The puzzle is easy, just match the 
colors in the cube and you must finish 3 of them. After finishing it go to 
3-C. Before entering there go near the 3-C window and you will see the 
psychic bar is activated, use it. You will see Astraios doing something 
in the computer and he will disappear. Now proceed going inside 3-C and put 
the Rescue Disk in the computer. You have to input some Japanese strokes, I 
couldn't have finished this walkthrough without "KimTKDC" THANKS. Here are the 
steps he gave me:

  
By the way, you only input each stroke once. You should never use the same 
stroke twice, or you'll screw up, i.e. if there's only seven different 
strokes to choose from, obviously there is only seven strokes allowed, you 
cannot do eight or six strokes and YOU CANNOT USE THE SAME EXACT STROKE MORE 
THAN ONCE UNLESS IT LOOKS DIFFERENT!!  

The first character's order of strokes is this
1) Upper left
2) Upper right
3) Horizontal
4) Vertical
5) Bottom left
6) Bottom right
The second character is like this:
1) The vertical line on the very left with a little diagonal line at the 
bottom attached to it
2) The other diagonal line on the left side of the character
(This one's really two characters combined into one)
3) Horizontal line on the left handside
4) The two lines shaped like a "7" at the top right
5) The vertical line on the right side of the character
6) The horizontal line on the rightside
The third character is like this:
1) Vertical/Diagonal line on the very left
2) The long horizontal line
3) The weird "7" looking stroke on the bottom left
4) The long diagonal stroke that goes from the upper left to the bottom right
5) The medium size diagonal stroke that goes from upper right to the bottom 
left in the lower right hand corner.
6) And finally the little dot looking stroke in the upper right
These characters mean: "rice", "to like", and "to be"

If you gamers are having problems with this Japanese input codes, you can E-MAIL 
ME so me and KimTKDC will do something about it.

After solving both three computers, just go out of the room. Here the Sensei 
spotted Athena went out of the class and he told the high command of WARM troops 
about it. He now deployed the troops to get Athena. Right now Athena will be at 
the roof top and you will fight with "Astraios" for the last time. "Astraios" 
will blast Athena a few time and after that you will learn Athena's PYSCHO BALL 
the jester will attack Athena with psycho ball too. My advice is everytime you 
see jester is about to fire just move either left to right evade him like going 
zig-zags. Then counter attack the jester if he is not ready, I think you will 
have to hit him with PSYCHO BALL six times. After successfully weakened him he 
will fly high in the air and cast a very strong psycho ball on Athena. Athena 
will survive the attack, now its your turn to fire back. When you see your 
psychic bar continue the sequence PSYCHO BLAST (Trgl, Sqr, Sqr, Trg) or attack 
him with Athena's normal PSYCHO BALL (Sqr, Sqr, Trgl) and he is finished.


After the battle "Astraios" is defeated and it looks at Athena for the last time 
and he exploded. Crashing them all down below. WARM chopper checked if Athena 
survived the blast. They confirmed "Astraios" is gone and Athena survived. Now 
they are still on persuit of Athena. "Can't they just leave her alone" Now 
Athena crashed down in the (Girl's Toilet) there is a save point here. Don't 
forget to heal up before going out of the room there will be more chasing action 
next. When you go out a robot and a WARM soldier will chase Athena. So enter 
this commands quick.

1.Lower Right

2.Upper Right

3.Right

4.UP (enter the room)

When the WARM soldier enter use (Sqr, Sqr, Trgl) or (Trgl, Sqr, Sqr, Trgl) at 
once and when it dies go out of the room immediately. Or another one will come 
in. 

When your outside enter this command.

1.Right

2.Right

3.Lower Right

4.Upper Right

5.Up (enter the room)

Inside this room Athena hides and tries to see if the robot is following her. 
But instead the robot smashed into the wall to enter and Athena is startled and 
hits the floor. Now you will fight this big robot. Just do the same steps when 
you fought "Astraios" you can use the PSYCHO BLAST here too already (Trgl, Sqr, 
Sqr, Trgl) but this attack must be done accurately because this attack only 
shoots straight. Unlike the PSYCHO BALL (Sqr, Sqr, Trgl) it can follow the enemy 
where ever it goes just like a heat seeker. Just try to go behind the robot and 
shoot it either PSYCHO BLAST or PSYCHO BALL.

After defeating it both Athena and the robot crashes down below again in one of 
the floors in the school. The students are fleeing, Rika is trying to ask Sensei 
for help on Athena. But Rika was stunned to hear that the Sensei is also 
involved on capturing Athena. Rika was shocked she now tries to find and help 
Athena by herself.

Now your back at Athena, go in the other room. Here there is a Potato chips, a 
Cola drink, and a save point. Then check the microphone and leave the room. The 
robot is still alive and detects her presence, it now started shooting again. 
Everybody is hearing Athena screaming from the school speakers. Rika hears her, 
now Rika is now going inside where Athena is. 

After the shooting an entrance has opened near the dead robot somewhere. When 
you go out you will fight another robot. Now try doing this  There are two 
mines moving around at this battle plus the robot. As much as possible don't let 
the robot see you face to face. Just go up the table to evade the moving mines, 
but watch out for the robot. Start sending PSYCHO BLAST on the robot, but you 
must time his movements so you can hit him hard. After two to three hits the 
robot is defeated.

Then after defeating it Kensou will help Athena escape, he kind of casted a time 
stop on the two WARM soldier and Kensou threw Athena in the vent to escape. The 
Kensou acted like hero stuff, but when the soldiers click shifted there guns 
Kensou bid them good bye. Kensou is really Funny ^-^. 

Athena now runs to the garden to escape but she was detected and cornered by all 
the WARM troops. The WARM high command ordered to open fire at her, everybody 
fired but nothing can pierce her PSYCHO SHIELD not even one lead. All the 
students can her the shots fired and so as Rika. Rika tries to enter but guards 
wont let her pass. The troops siezed fire, Sensei is try to check Athena. Poor 
Athena she is already crying. WARM high command starts to say open fire, Rika 
started to run towards Athena. The soldiers opened fire, Sensei is screaming to 
stop firing a student is on the way. But it is to late, Rika got shot in the 
back and Athena was shocked to see Rika shot. Now everybody has stop firing and 
the Sensei is shouting at the high command of WARM. The soldiers spotted 
something is going on with Athena. She was in full rage and screamed, in full 
blast of her powers she blew away some of the troops. Kensou is screaming 
Athena's name and he is heading towards the bright light.

After all the incident. Athena is captured. The Sensei stares on Rika's lifeless 
body. He now blames himself for all what happened.

    WHILE THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE


Now Athena will be at WAD research center. She is in one of the rooms, her 
Masato appears in front of Athena and talks to her in brief and disappears. Now 
take the item that is flashing in the room and it's a pass code. When your about 
to go left he appears again and talks in brief and disappears. Now open the 
opened locker and take the Card Key RR. Then leave the room and use the Card Key 
RR to open the door. Now go down stairs and you will see Kensou escaped too. He 
will help on the way. Before proceeding he give you a steamed bun and some rice 
cakes. Enter the first door you see, when your inside take the item you see 
flashing and its another pass code. When looking at the bookshelves you will see 
an item and it's a MO Disk. Under the desk there is an item take it and it's a 
Video Disk, Now check the turned on computer and it shows Athena's profile. Just 
keep checking the computer until nothing is written, after that leave the room. 
Next on the second door you see enter inside. Now when inside take the flashing 
item and it's a Locker Key. Also here there is an item and it's a bunch of 
potato chips. After taking all the items inside leave the room. Here Kensou runs 
right of the screen and he went in the door, but he will then get stuck and it 
won't open. Talk to him for the last time and go to the opposite way. The door 
you see on Athena's right get near it (This needs the a copied data from the MO 
Disk from PC1 and PC2 to open) Use her PSYCHIC POWER on it and it shows the dark 
room that has no power on it. But don't go there yet go to the place with the 
lockers, the one you started with. When your inside you will see a locker that 
is flashing dim red. Go near it and use the Locker Key you have got. Inside it 
is a Card Key CR. Now go back to the place where you suppose to go in, but not 
yet that is later. Instead near that door there is another door on the left. Use 
the Card Key CR to open it. Inside this room there are a lot of specimens and 
there is a save point here. Now click open the big flashing monitor near the 
save point. Behind the other specimens you will see an item and it's a bubble 
gum. Then on the computer shelf there is another pass code. Now go to the other 
door of this room and enter this codes.

T  Third Entry

================


Now go back where the dark room with computers on it and you will find the power 
is on already at this room. Now go near the black door and use Athena's psychic 
power. After all the sequence the door will be unlocked. Go inside and take the 
item there and its another key and it's a special kind of key. Now get near the 
computer and use the Video Disk. After reading all it is written go back on the 
room where all the specimens are and on this place there is a computer that is 
connected with the specimens in the middle. Use the special key to activate the 
computer flashing red. Everything will be dark for a second and all the 
specimens are destroyed. After seeing all what happened go back to again to the 
room where a lot of computers. When there you will see two computers are online 
PC1 and PC2. Use the MO Disk on PC1 first then leave the room and go to the door 
that needs the MO Disk, when there use it to open, but when the red turns green 
go back immediately to the room of the computers and use the MO Disk on PC2. 
After copying the PC2 data go back on the door you just opened and go inside. 
Inside this place is a bright red, on the door on the left use the MO Disk to 
open it and then enter the room.

When your inside check the person inside the capsule and use Athena's psychic 
power (Trgl) and she is Dr. Takaoki she is the one on the beginning of movie 
intro's. Now she talks at you and she tells you to check the computer that is 
turned on. The computers shows about "Astraios" and "Peiro" Now check the second 
monitor that is opened and it shows the events happened on the past. Then again 
check the last monitor. After that go back a talk to Dr. Takaoki, then 
malfunctions has started because of Tantaros. Here I have no idea what to do, I 
just raise the pressure to 100% as much as I can until the time is finished. 
After that you will receive the Card Key EO and after receiving it leave the 
room. Before leaving the room, Masato talks to Dr. Takaoki for the last moment 
and after talking to her he bids her farewell.

Now go to the room where the specimens are, use the Card Key EO to the locked 
door and enter the room. Before going down stairs take the Cola drink. When your 
down stairs go down below the screen and here there is another Cola drink and a 
save point. Now go inside the big door and here inside is the super computer 
Tantaros and they are using Masato as a battery because of his great psychic 
powers. Tantaros next victim is Athena. Here is your FINAL BATTLE!!! First 
command go forward in the middle and then at the second command use Athena's 
PSYCHO BLAST (Trgl, Sqr, Sqr, Trgl) Then the middle will be destroyed. This is 
your secured area so just stay in the middle. Now use Athena's PSYCHO BALL on 
each of the laser blasters until both sides are destroyed. After destroying 
them, Tantaros send Three machine guns at Athena to shoot her down. So 
immediately use PSYCHO BLAST so you will destroy the first gun. Then for the 
last remaining two, just keep evading and away from their target, when their no 
on your sight use the PSYCHO BLAST to destroy it. After destroying the guns, you 
must go up through the elevator and destroy the laser blaster monitors on each 
side (WATCH YOUR HP!!!! Heal up, by using the items and let Athena eat her snack 
^-^) After destroying the laser monitor, Tantaros is overloading and a tremor 
occurs because of the malfunction. Poor Athena falls from the top. The Eye of 
Tantaros has been activated and its charging to blast Athena in full force, 
Athena is already exhausted. Great Kensou and his psychic powers, shielded the 
hard blast from Tantaros. The blast was to strong, Kensou was sended flying 
behind but he successfully defended Athena from the hard blast. He happily 
saying he is OK. Now for all of that Athena is now very angry, you will now 
learn Athena's FULL BLAST PSYCHO BALL after destroying the Eye of Tantaros. 
Masato is asking Athena for help to destroy the main heart of Tantaros and to 
release him from his suffering. Athena now climbs up the stairs. Here just keep 
doing PSYCHO BLAST and stay in one place, until both four pillars supporting the 
heart is destroyed. Now the heart screams to its end and it crashed in to crytal 
bits.

Masato is already released from Tantaros. He said he is already released from 
his pain and he bids farewell to Athena and he says he won't make it. Athena 
says he cant die, Masato bids Athena good bye. Athena was so sad and calls 
Masato's name repeatedly.

It is now 6:00 in the morning, they are all pleased that everything is OK. The 
Sensei is there waiting outside and saw them, He told them about Rika that she 
is gone and he is sorry (If I'm gonna be Kensou I'll punch him in the face 
exactly for what happened to Rika!!! Ehem! Ah! Lets go back to the ending story 
0_-) Athena is speechless to see Rika lifeless body. Masato speaks on Athena's 
mind and say that she can use her power on healing. Here you will use and learn 
Athena's last ESP HEALING. Athena holds Rika's and Athena cried, Rika's body 
flashed in a blue light and she was revived. Rika is alive and well, Athena 
hugged Rika hard and she was so happy. Rika told her about the pendant Athena 
gave her that she is wearing and it gave her luck. Very happy Athena hugged her 
hard again. Everyone is now OK and happy.

the cherry blossom trees. They are having a conversation, Athena ask what if 
something happens to them again, what will she do? Great Kensou tries to cheer 
her up by saying I'll beat them up and I'll fight on your side. Athena was so 
happy she thanked him sweetly. When Kensou is about to talk to Athena on 
something (Oh! I forgot to tell you gamers something, Kensou is been trying win 
Athena's heart, but poor guy never have his chance Heh! O_o) Athena saw Rika 
coming on their way, Athena immediately ran towards her. But she paused there 
and said to Rika do you still hate me? Rika said Stop it! Let me say this - 
Thank you Athena for everything and for saving my life. Kensou went between them
