Skip Beat PS2 Chapter 2 (part 3)

The job decision is not hers alone. Kyouko says she is in a very difficult position.

Ren and Kanae both apologize to her. But Shou say he hasn't given up yet. At this point of time, another 4 way decision, on who to talk to first. This part is very important.

If Kyouko chooses to fight with Shou, Ren will become very depressed, and he will leave. And Shou will continue to be smug. (More details in the differences section.)

If Kyouko says she is happy that Mouko asked her, Mouko will give this cute embarrassed expression. But she still doesn't let her call her by name. -_- Ren leaves then Shou leaves.

The real interesting part is if she talks to Ren, and says it is not his fault.

Shou: "Then it's my fault?"
Kyouko: "Your fault has been decided 4 million years ago!"

She tells Shou that Ren is nothing like him, he will never resort to dirty tricks. Shou insists that he's not going to give way. She tells him to stop doing as he pleases, especially about her. Shou claims that he has a reason for doing this, and he's not doing this simply because he's being selfish. "Who knows what plans that guy has for you?"

Ren: "That is not true. I simply respect her."

Kyouko can sense a great aura. Even one like Shou can't stay undaunted by Demon King Ren.

(I suspect the reason for Ren's anger, was that Shou was close to revealing Ren's intentions and his feelings towards Kyouko. Ren sent Shou a very clear message to shut up. If anyone is going to say Ren's feelings, it will be himself, no one else.)

Ren tells Shou clearly to watch his words, and states their ethical conduct. Shou protests. "uh...Mostly, why is Tsuruga Ren so interested in such an empty talent? It makes no sense! After all, there are so many women you can choose from in showbiz!"

Kyouko protests at what Shou called her. "Who are you calling an empty talent?"

Ren steps in for her. "I won't allow you to insult her any more." Kyouko can see Shou's face changing. Mouko-san also steps in for Kyouko. She says she will also not stand for such boorish talk.

"So you're saying I'm being mean to Kyouko?"
"That's exactly what it is."

Shou realizes it's a hopeless situation. "I can't win against 3 people from LME." He has no choice but to leave. (They should play the Final Fantasy Fanfare music at this point. :D )

Kyouko thanks them both for helping. Mouko notices that Ren's clothes were dirty. He says must be from catching the piglets. Mouko gets angry at Kyouko. "You actually asked Tsuruga-San to help you catch piglets?!" Mouko was irate, but Ren said he really wanted to help. Kyouko apologizes again, but he assures her it was really okay, since he had fun. He leaves.

Kyouko thought about how Ren defended her, and her heart was beating really fast.

Mouko comments Kyouko is always in some kind of trouble. She reminds her to clean up the food used as bait.

Finally, everything is done. They locked the room properly this time. This is the last time they'll be seeing the piglets, Kyouko is sad to have to say goodbye to them.

Kanae has something to do, so they can't go back together. Kyouko becomes sad. Kanae says she shouldn't complain.

Anyway, after this, Kyouko's jobs are finished, so she considers what to do. Another 4 way option. This 4 way option doesn't say who you'll meet etc, but the differences are very big.

If she chooses Training Centre, she meets Sawara and Lory.
If she chooses LME, she meets Maria then Ren.
If she chooses to buy juice, she meets Asami, and then Shou.
If she chooses to return to Darumaya, Mouko-san drops by for a visit.

So let's take the one for Ren.

Kyouko meets Maria-Chan, who was happy to see her. Apparently she wasn't able to meet Lory, who went out. Maria could tell that something was bothering Kyouko, but she says it's fine. Ren soon appears. Maria-chan is happy to see Ren. Ren comments the 2 of them are getting along fine as usual. Kyouko takes this opportunity to apologize about his clothes getting dirtied. So that was what's bothering her, Maria says.

Anyway, Maria has to leave to contact her grandpa again, so she says goodbye to them. Kyouko is a bit worried that they will end up talking about the jobs again. Ren assures her they won't talk about it any more. Ren offers to give her a ride again.

Kyouko actually already ate a bento earlier, but says she would accompany Ren again for dinner, since he is planning on skipping this meal. She also adds that Yashiro would cry if he finds out. Ren comments she was like doing it for her sense of duty. 2 options here, she can either say it's not sense of duty, or say it's responsibility instead.

Not much difference between the 2 choices. Both leave Ren wondering for a while. Anyway, from the car, she sees a clear view of the night sky and the stars. Kyouko talks about fairies, and asks if Ren thought of her as weird. He assures her he never thought of her that way.

Ren takes Kyouko to an impressive French Restaurant. He paying for their meals, but he also has to give her several excuses to make her comfortable with that.

Ren orders in French, and it really impresses Kyouko. She comments that any lady would be charmed by this. Ren comments, "Well, it doesn't seem to have any effect on the intended target anyway." :p Kyouko thinks to herself, "So there's actually a woman who isn't attracted to Tsuraga-san." >_<

Anyway, it seems that Ren had a special reason for inviting her here, and it's because of the unique drink they serve. The color of the drink looks exactly like the stone Corn. It was also non alcohol, so it was okay for her to drink it. Kyouko was really impressed by this.


Ren is glad she likes it. They talk about Corn for a bit. Kyouko wonders what would happen if a fairy actually drank alcohol. Ren just smile at her gently.

Regardless of what happened, the next day, Kyouko arrives at the Chairman's office. She would have taken all the 3 jobs if she could. Sadly, he informs her that she can only take one job. Once again, he asks her for her preference. This is the last of the 4 options.

If she says Ren's job, Lory says Ren will be happy, but she still has problems believing it. Anyway, he says the results will be out the next day. Kyouko gets herself mentally prepared.

It automatically jumps to the next day. That was quick.

Once again Kyouko is back at the office. Lory will announce the job she is taking, just before Chapter 2 ends.

The path taken here is decided from all the previous choices made. From here on, there will be no more 4 way options. Most of the options from here on will be 3 way options, one towards the character, one neutral, and one away.

As I have mentioned many times before, Ren's path is the most default path, the best path, and the most logical path. This is the most challenging job, but also the best person to work with. Basically, Ren's path is like the most guaranteed.

Furthermore, in order for Kyouko to get to Shou path, she has to go against everything that has been laid out in front of her. In other words, she has to do some really stupid things to get to the Shou path. That's why Shou path is a very unlikely situation to happen.

I will be covering the Ren path from here. I will be more detailed than previously. This will be DETAILED.


  1. LOL!!! kyouko is really really dense!!! haha..that's her cute part though =p wahaha! poor ren!

  2. awwww i feel so bad for ren, it makes me angry at kyoko that she doesnt notice rens love for her. I hope when they work together it will push them closer though. GO FIGHT WIN, REN!

  3. i agree... GO REN!!

  4. I agree as well....GO GO REN

  5. You guys are forgetting something very important. Because of a certain guys actions, the "LOVE" part of Kyouko's brain has stopped functioning, which results in her being dense, which results in funny moments.
