Shion - Yakuza 5 Walkthrough & Guide - GameFAQs
That's in real life. In the Yakuza series, going to a hostess club involves finding a particular hostess and treating her as if she were a dating sim. Divorce quiz, yakuza 4 hostess dating guide erena print it out and asked me 48 pools and restaurants, by reading more about them yakuza 5 dating guide. It covers the very tail end of Yakuza 5 and the consequences of Kiryu's actions at Darts, hostess clubs, karaoke, and more are back as well.
Was it only for promotion or do they actually appear in the game as well like in the previous games?
As for me, you should be WELL aware of how I feel about the hostess section of the series and you can imagine how uneasy I was to hear that they were gonna upgrade it, however after playing it I've come to like most of the changes.
While the new view of looking directly at their face is nothing new to me considering I've played the Kurohyo spin off games, It took some getting used to having the girls be fully voiced especially with the freaking ACCENTS they have in the game Damn you Riku I can't totally understand you sometimes!!
I'm especially grateful that the total amount of default conversations you can have with them are all smaller than what they used to be, since it saves me time when I type out transcripts for them, but I especially like how despite the shorter list of default conversations they made sure increase the length for each of the conversations and they also made some of them tricky depending on how you respond earlier in the topic mainly because Sometimes what you say earlier can come back and bite you later on in the conversation.
Asking the girls out on after work dates wasn't as bad as I thought, I originally thought it was gonna be another excuse to torture you with another "Make Haruka happy" style section, but they're pretty short and simple. If you wanted to you can just boost up the heart gauge by picking specific choices again and again, and I find that just a TAD bit lazy.
But this is minor especially considering if you pick a topic starter directly after you've had specific previous conversation with the girl you may get something called a TALK COMBO which may give you an additional heart increase or heart decrease depending on the topic.
I remember being taken aback when I first ended up getting a talk combo because I didn't know such a feature existed, but this is what makes the free action acceptable in my opinion. One other minor thing is the text response system, I don't think they gain you points anymore and it appears they're now limited strictly to just text responses if you choose the right answer Plus it takes too much time for them to respond to your text messages making it annoying to wait to see if you picked the right response.
I just think they should consider upgrading the free action part a bit more and shorten the amount of time the girls can respond to your text messages, and to allow you to use Taxis when you're with the girls on after work dates.
Riku reminds me of Saya from Yakuza 3 and Kurohyo Now SHE was a cutie. They appear in Side quests for each city. For example of the winners is a opponent for Kiryu's Taxi racing sub story, and Mami is a side quest for Saejima's section And ha damn did they make her look cute for a simple NPC Oh that chick in the racing part was one of the winners? I was kinda like "that's weird that you gotta race this chick suddenly" lol Yeah, I agree with pretty much all you said about the text messages and not being able to taxi tho' it didn't matter much for Nagasu, because the taxis are in crappy positions there and everything's on the main drag anyway Ryuuga Gotoku Yakuza series text FAQs available at GameFAQs PSN: Bored Mafuyu 6 years ago 6 I do like the hostess segment of the game from the first episode!
I liked so much that in Ryu 4 a larger part was based on hostesses just think of the seven hostesses plus the 3 "Let's make number one" hostesses created by Akiyama. I remember I bought lots of costumes and accessories for them and they wore these gifts in the next club visiting or dating in Ryu 4.
Back at the Dyna Chair office, Akiyama checked on Yamaura about Haruka's whereabouts, which she didn't know, and told her and Christian that the assailants were from Ousaka Enterprises who thought that Haruka had the letter from Park's ex-husband.
Not so long after, they were greeted by Katsuya, who brought Haruka back. He apologized to Akiyama for putting Haruka in harm's way, and continued by confessing that he's the president of Osaka Talents as well as chief of headquarters of Omi Alliance and chairman of Ousaka Enterprises, and admitted that Kanai was his underling.

During the encounter, he revealed that Park's ex-husband was none other than Goro Majima, much to Akiyama's surprise. After meeting Katsuya, Akiyama told Yamaura and Christian that Sotenbori is too dangerous for Haruka due to Omi Alliance's prominence, prompting him to leave Osaka and take Haruka to Kamurocho, figuring that by doing so the Omi Alliance will have to be careful due to Kamurocho being Tojo Clan's home turf, and to continue her journey to the Tokyo Dome concert.
The following day, Akiyama told Haruka that it was Majima who sent Park the letter, and that Katsuya wanted the letter to learn about Majima's whereabouts. However, Haruka refused to hand the letter over, which raises his suspicion that Haruka might be hiding something. Eventually, he managed to met Haruka at the station, however, he also encountered Kanai and his goons, which he managed to fend off before joining Haruka and taking her to Tokyo by taxi.
In the final chapter, Akiyama encountered Katsuya again in Tokyo, this time with an offer of million yen to cancel the Japan Dome concert as well as Katsuya's guarantee that Osaka Talent will cover the cancellation expenses, which he declined.
Back at Sky Finance, he met Tatsuo Shinada who requested a million yen loan to cancel a concert in Japan Dome, much to his surprise. Later on during the finale, Akiyama fought Kanai alongside his fellow Omi Alliance men. Upon defeating it, he gained a high degree of respect from the Omi Alliance, Yamagasa Family, and Kitakata Family to a point where all of the families bowed down before Akiyama.
Yakuza 6 Edit It is revealed that during the three years that Kiryu spends in prison that Akiyama has shut down Sky Finance and seemingly disappeared after being targeted by the Chinese triads.
Kiryu, searching for Haruka who has also seemingly gone missing, eventually finds Akiyama in hiding living in the sewers. Akiyama informs Kiryu that he doesn't know the whereabouts of Haruka and the two's conversation is cut short by the Chinese Mafia.
Kiryu and Akiyama work together to take down mafia thugs and Akiyama is forced out of hiding. When it is later revealed that Haruka has been left in a coma after being involved in a hit-and-run incident, Akiyama accompanies Kiryu to the hospital. It is also revealed that Haruka has a young son named Haruto.
When child-services appear to take the child away, Kiryu decides to kidnap Haruto, stating that he doesn't want him to grow up in an institution just like he and Haruka had to. Akiyama disagrees with Kiryu and the two fight inside the children's ward. Kiryu eventually overpowers Akiyama and he reluctantly agrees to let Kiryu take Haruto.
He's later seen in the 7th chapter where Kiryu asked him to meet at a hotel in Theater Square. Disguised as a window cleaner, he met Kiryu, accompanied by Murota of Tojo Clan's Jinsei Family, his new acquaintance. There, Akiyama told Kiryu a few things: In return, Kiryu told him that he's looking for Tatsukawa and also his plan to go to Little Asia to talk with Ed, which he agreed under the condition that Kiryu should bring more men to go there.

In the final chapter, Akiyama is seen paying a visit to the now-recovered Haruka at the police hospital. He told Kiryu that Haruka may have to move around to keep her safe from both Tojo Clan and Yomei Alliance, however, he can't help Kiryu to take care of Haruka and joined Kiryu and the rest of Hirose Family instead.
