Spirits of Edo provides players with six eligible bachelors to choose from, including Yoichi, the lazy but strong enjoyer of tea. If you want to romance Yoichi, then you have to know how to say the right things so that he falls in love with you. Then of course there is the all-important Affection or Sorrow ending choice.

Your choices during the common route don’t affect who’s route you will end up on, so feel free to speak to people in any order you like. The only decision that matters in this first part is the choice to join Castle Town. Once you do this, you will be locked into choosing between Kuga and Yoichi’s route.

Yoichi’s Route: Castle Town choices

Here are all the choices that raise your affection with Yoichi in the Castle Town route.

  • (W- What should I do…?!)
    • Decline the offer - Yoichi
    • Have him buy some - Kuga
  • (I have to tell him how I really feel…)
    • I’m prepared - No change
    • I don’t know - Kuga
  • At the answer I finally received, I thought…
    • Isn’t that a contradiction?! - Yoichi
    • … Really? - No change
  • (In that case…)
    • Let’s have fun - Yoichi
    • Let’s keep watching - Kuga
  • I answered the question honestly.
    • This is the only option - Yoichi
    • I’m just doing what I can - Kuga

If you want to play Yoichi’s route, you need to make every choice that raises his affection. You can choose either option if there isn’t one specifically for Yoichi, as long as Yoichi’s affection is higher than Kuga’s.

Yoichi’s Route options

Here are the choices you have to make in order to get the Affection or Sorrow endings for Yoichi.

  • Wah?! We, uh…
    • We’re coworkers - No change
    • It’s a long story - Yoichi
  • He pointed at me, so I replied.
    • I was thinking about you Yoichi - Yoichi
    • I’m sorry - No change
  • I want…
    • To be with you - No change
    • To change myself - Yoichi

*Save here*

  • It was easier said than done. Actually doing it would take an outrageous amount of time.
    • Look into it anyway - Affection ending
    • Find something else - Sorrow ending
  • (This isn’t looking good!)
    • Stop Yoichi - Yoichi
    • Don’t stop Yoichi - No change

The choice for the ending is the last but one, so we recommend you create a save here before making your choice. Each comes with a number of different CGs, so you will likely want to experience both. To achieve these endings rather than the Low Affection ending, you will need to make sure you have answered the previous questions correctly.
