Variable Barricade – Shion Mayuzumi Walkthrough (Spoiler‑Free)

“I thought that perhaps you might require my presence.” - Shion


Game Content Warnings: Mild language, violence.

Route Content Warnings: Kidnapping.

Shion Mayuzumi Route Guide

Shion is sitting with a worried look on his face. A cat is perched on each of his shoulders with others surrounding him.

Things to keep in mind: This Variable Barricade walkthrough is as spoiler-free as possible, and following it will lead to 100% completion of the route.

Some choices may be out of order based on whether Continuous Play is turned on or off.

During the common route, the Level 1 Barricade Board for each of the love interests must be played. It does not matter which order these are completed in, only the choices made during the route. The same goes for selecting the boys throughout the common route.

If this is not the first route played, the common route can be skipped by starting a new game and selecting “Skip to ‘Make a Choice’.” I personally do not recommend doing this as new dialogue will be missed.

After completing this route, the corresponding After story will become available.

Once the Love End for all four LI’s has been completed, the True End Board unlocks. To access it, start a new game and follow the prompts.

Variable Barricade Walkthroughs and Route Order Recommendation

All four LIs are available from the start and can be played in any order. In all honesty, there’s no real reason to play one before another as all the routes are separate from the others. That being said, my recommendation is based on which stories I found the least engaging to the most.

  1. Nayuta Yagami
  2. Ichiya Mitsumori
  3. Shion Mayuzumi (You are here!)
  4. Taiga Isurugi
