Dies irae Walkthrough (Light)

9-nine episode 1

This is a walkthrough for the Steam edition of Dies irae, a visual novel by Light. Arguably one of the biggest titles in the genre. In Dies irae, there are 4 main routes for you explore (Kasumi, Kei, Marie, and Rea), but there’s plenty of story to go for a long time. Do note that this walkthrough assumes you have the Act I and Act II DLCs installed.

The guide itself is based of this original Japanese walkthrough by seiya saiga, but was adjusted to match the English translation instead. It uses 4 save slots. You’ll also have all CGs after finishing all of the routes below.

Notes
