Small update due to the sudden arrival of the new Skill, which we translated as Monster Koikoi. "Monsters, Bring It On" is too long to write, and "Monsters Come On" sounds confusing in a sentence: "try putting a come on on that spot", for example. "Try putting a koikoi on that spot" just sounds much better.

Improvement of the explanations:
- List of Skills and Descriptions
New Skill "Monster Koikoi" is explained.

Introduction:
- Fixed the outdated number of shot types
- Small changes to "Is Gothic wa Mahou Otome pay to win?"

Other:
- Corrected typos and revised weird grammar

While transplanting the guide into a wiki format, I had to minutely read the explanations to find words that should be hyperlinked. I noticed many flaws -- especially on the first pages -- but didn't have any consistent progress to justify releasing a new version. So, I searched for an easy task to do. I added a behavior analysis table for assist Skills, pretty much nailing the Skills explanation.

Improvement of the explanations:
- List of Skills and Descriptions
Added a table for behavior analysis of assist Skills
Correction: Skill level up and Awakening doesn't increase the duration of offensive Skills other than Special Bullet

Other:
- Big improvements to the overall explanation quality of the first pages of the guide (mostly concerning quest selection and gameplay)
- Corrected typos and revised weird grammar

Gosh, what an amazing guide you wrote there you misters. Congratulations.
I wish I found it while I allowed myself to play on Android, but this thing is evil to me.

With this substantial update, the guide advances to its 13th version.

New explanations:
- In-game Skill Descriptions. Lists the in-game skill descriptions and relates them to their respective Skill, as some screens that display a familiar's stats don't show the Skill's name, only it's description. The guide reader can match the texts in order to figure out what Skill an in-game explanation concerns.
- Other Skill Considerations. Explains Skill Awakening with more details, Skills that have Boss Effectiveness (ボス有効) and gives advice for obtaining Skill-up items.
(As a result, any part of the guide that concerns Skills, such as During Stages and Equip Familiars, has new hyperlinks and overall better explanations.)
- Glossary. Hyperlinks over 120 terms in the guide. As a result, I felt like some explanations were lacking:
Added a clear definition for what a Friend as an introduction to the Friends List screen.
Defined clearly what is a miniboss and midboss in the During Stages and Boss Fight explanations.
Explained, in details, guild events and the many rewards that come from guild battles. As a result, many sections of the guild guide were improved with hyperlinks to this section.
Minor improvements were made to the Dating Screen, Gacha screens and other explanations.

Guild Battle and related explanations:
- Improved advice concerning Boost and Break usage.

Daily Checklist:
- Linked a daily guide video created by a foreigner player named Itasou.

Other:
- Added "Spiral" to the shot types list (new shot type).
- Corrected typos and revised weird grammar.

13.5 update. As I was writing the Gomaotsu Guide Wiki's glossary, I noticed a few explanations could have revised. Not a major update, but some details may be worth seeing.

New explanation:
Table of Gacha Rates

Improvement of the explanations:
- List of Shot Types
Added scoring reference videos (Cross Blade D, Pile Bunker D, Photon Ray H/D).
- Other Skill Considerations
Added another consideration concerning the extra two seconds of Skill duration than the duration displayed on a Skill's description.
- In-game Skill Descriptions
Applied the same font for all Japanese text (the mistake happened because both fonts look very similar on Microsoft Word).
- Glossary
Added a more information for the redirected section of the guide for the following terms: Experience, National Score Contests.
Added a new term in the Gacha Terms category: Step Gacha.
Added links to the work-in-progress Gomaotsu Guide Wiki's explanation of basic game terms.
- Mission screen
Improved the explanation of event missions.
- Class Rankings:
Improved overall explanation.

13.6 update. Although necessary due to the appearance of a new shot and Skill, little has changed (more on that at the end of this log).

- Added "Phoenix" to the shot types list (new shot type).
- Added "Search Rapid-Fire" and respective information to the List of Skill and Descriptions and other sections regarding Skills.
- Reorganized the texts on "In-game Skill Explanations" in order to make it more uniform.
- Updated the outdated game version on the introduction.

A personal note concerning the guide's development
All the game's noteworthy features have long been explained, and I will work at full pace to explain new features (side note: a large-scale update is scheduled for September). All I can do to improve the guide at this point is make the current explanations more detailed and give more advice. I am all about doing that, but recently I have found an artist in myself, and the reception from my followers on Twitter has been quite positive.
As much as I like explaining the complex systems of Gomaotsu, I question how much guide readers would take out of them. Heavily competitive players are a rare breed, even more so on the overseas; so until it becomes a demand, I will not, for example, list all the score multipliers upon destroying each type of enemy. For the contained community that we have over at our Discord server, personal advice and reference videos neatly accomplish this.
For the time being, I will spend most of my free time on drawing the characters of Gomaotsu (until the coming of large-scale updates or the appearance of a certain demand), as it has been a blast. I'd appreciate if a dedicated fan could help me explaining the very specific, mostly useless details of Gomaotsu, but until such a person appears, I will be writing on my own.

Thank you very much. The Japanese community on Twitter and the small overseas community have been giving me a lot of support, so it's been a lot of fun.

You've clearly put a ton of effort into this guide, and this sort of work can't be appreciated enough. Thank you!

As someone just curiously wanting to toe-dip into the game, though, the guide's length and content is a bit daunting. Would you say the majority of the guide should be understood to start enjoying the game, and if not, is there a portion (Pages N to X) that you would recommend to fully understand before starting? :)

Slowly absorbing the guide while playing the game seems to be a good way. What I always say to beginners that join our Discord server is that the guide is very big and I don't actually expect people to read it all, so asking questions to us there is welcome. On the same line, playing with friends is often more fun, so I always hope more people get to join us there.

Heyy, I have been playing this game for almost half a year already, and just found this forum. I am in the Lobi community and have been in quite a few guilds so far (bar☆crono、既婚者の会、メジナ幼稚園 etc.). And it appears I am the only one from the US that uses the Lobi app. Wondering if there is a US/British community for this game? FYI in the next update 2.1 they are gonna add in-game friend/guild chat function too, would be cool to meet some people that speak English.

Here's something different. I want to make a FAQ section for the guide, divided in subcategories for each game mode, in order to help browsing the long explanations. I thought of some good questions to add, but I'd also like to hear suggestions from other people. If you can think of any important questions (even if you already know the answer), please post them as a reply.

In Familiars menu: Sometimes, merging rarity 6 is a complicated way to merge stuff. Is there anyway to fix this problem?

In Guild: How come different stages may apply every and week?

Lobi problems: How come Lobi doesn't allow users to access in YT anymore?

Connection lags during gameplay: Is it me or depending others' lag connections due of over-trafficking servers? (Prolly connectivity errors)

I wonder if these questions were sufficiently enough, cause I only have several ideas in it. Hope that helps.

I suppose we could summarize the first question as "How to reincarnate familiars?". The answer would be "You can see the requirements on the Reincarnate Familiars screen explanation".

The second question is a good one. I intended to do a list with videos of all guild battle stages, and might add this to the guide in the future.

As for the third question, as Lobi will be defunct in a few months, I would not add a FAQ question concerning it.

Usually when maintenance is over, download speed is really slow. I suppose sometimes the game suffers from heavy user traffic.

Thanks for the insights.

I have a bad feeling why the connectivity has a big problem according to lag, even though I was playing Guild Battle and downloading some contents left me a cram. I was wondering why the download speed is laggy in terms of slow connections...

Wow, this guide is sick! I guess I'll give Gomaotsu another chance now that I can navigate the menus.

Just got around to downloading the update to this after a long hiatus. I understand Japanese, but will read through your guide later in case I come across anything I don't! Great job! Thanks!
