Kaede Akamatsu Bonus Mode Pixel Icon (7)

This article covers Kaede Akamatsu's Love Across the Universe date events, which feature in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. In this article you will find a guide to which date options give the best results and full transcripts of each date.

Mechanics[]

Shuichi must first complete Kaede's Free Time Event route and obtain all 5 hearts before he is able to access the use of Date Tickets. For a guide to Kaede's Free Time Event route, see: Free Time Events/Kaede Akamatsu.

After completing Kaede's Free Time Event route, he must then use Date Tickets, purchasable from the Casino at the end of each day, and choose a location. Each location has 3 separate sets of activities to choose from, for a total of 9 per location. Depending on the option chosen, Shuichi will receive a different response:

Best Option 1 heart
Good Option ½ heart
Bad Option No hearts
Worst Option No hearts

When getting close to 10 full hearts (which can be checked at Monokuma at the school entrance), Kaede's Harmonious Heart event will be triggered at random, which is a Non-Stop Debate style minigame that gives Shuichi an insight into Kaede's inner thoughts.

Achieving 10 hearts will unlock Kaede's ending at the end of Love Across the Universe. On the 10th day, Shuichi will be in the courtyard with any characters that he has earned full max reputation with. Talking to them will trigger a final dialogue choice option. If the player selects the correct answer, they will receive that character's special present - that character's underwear. Kaede's heart status carries on into subsequent playthroughs of Love Across the Universe, and his graduation event can be viewed for each subsequent playthrough until they reset the mode.


Dates[]

AV Room[]

Date 1[]

Watch a documentary on detectives
Guide Project Kaede 15
Yeah, let's watch that!
Now I'll get to learn more about your job, Shuichi!
Guide Project Kaede 13
If I'm ever involved in an incident, I'll go to you right away...
When that time comes, I hope you'll take care of me.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Watch a documentary on pianists
Guide Project Kaede 09
When I watch these, I get really pumped...
A performance isn't a competition, but I refuse to lose...
Guide Project Kaede 16
Alright! I'm gonna practice once I return to my research lab!
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Watch a documentary on bugs
Guide Project Kaede 06
B-Bugs?
Guide Project Kaede 36
It's not like I hate Gonta, but...
It's not really something we should watch with just the two of us...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2[]

Watch a musical
Guide Project Kaede 13
Musicals are good! It makes me wanna sing!
I like piano ballads best, but I generally like all music.
Guide Project Kaede 34
It's pretty cool that you understand my hobby.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Watch a comedy movie
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, good choice.
Being trapped in this academy is making me pretty depressed...
Guide Project Kaede 16
...but we should come up with fun ideas during times like these!
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Watch a horror movie
Guide Project Kaede 31
Umm... I don't really wanna watch anything scary...
How about we watch something happier instead?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 3[]

I might fall asleep...
Guide Project Kaede 09
People tend to get sleepy when they watch a boring movie.
When I play the piano, two hours pass by so quickly. It's interesting how time flies.
Guide Project Kaede 22
I'm glad you were thinking the same thing, though.
It would be pretty embarrassing if I had been the only one to fall asleep...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Play dominoes with the movie boxes
Guide Project Kaede 14
Sorry, but I don't think so.
So many people worked hard on every one of those movies.
I don't like the way you're acting...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
We should focus on reality, not movies
Guide Project Kaede 36
Huh? What's up? Are you saying you don't like movies?
Then, why did we come here?
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Dining Hall[]

Date 1[]

Let's cook something
Guide Project Kaede 14
I'm not good at cooking...
Well, I guess more like...I never get the opportunity to cook.
I wasn't allowed to cook in case I injured my fingers, since I'm a pianist...
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, yeah! If you know how to cook, then can you teach me?
Guide Project Kaede 13
With you standing next to me, I know I'll be safe!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's bake something
Guide Project Kaede 34
Shuichi, you know how to bake snacks? That's so awesome, mister baker!
Unless...do detectives need to know how to bake?
Guide Project Kaede 09
Hmm... I guess I should practice something other than just the piano.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's drink something
Guide Project Kaede 36
No, I'm not that thirsty.
But I'll tag along if you wanna drink something...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2[]

Let's have some tea
Guide Project Kaede 15
Great idea! Let's drink some tea and have a chat!
I wanna know you better, so this is perfect timing.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's go in the freezer
Guide Project Kaede 06
I think you might be sick, Shuichi.
A lot of intense stuff did happen, so... I think you should go rest in your room.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's try fasting
Guide Project Kaede 06
Ummm... Is this a kind of training for detectives?
Guide Project Kaede 31
I don't think this will help me with my piano performances, so I'll pass...
And since we're here, I'd prefer to do funner activities...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 3[]

Sleeping after a meal
Guide Project Kaede 22
I know it's not okay to do, but sometimes I just wanna lie down on my side and nap.
My mom used to scold me all the time...
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, do you remember? We talked about going over to my place to play the piano.
Guide Project Kaede 13
I'll introduce you to my mom when you do.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Drinking green tea after a meal
Guide Project Kaede 13
I wonder why tea after a meal is so relaxing.
Like listening to classical music... It makes me happy to be alive.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Exercising after a meal
Guide Project Kaede 09
Well, I know that's healthy and all...
But I always get food coma...
Guide Project Kaede 17
I-I mean, it doesn't matter, right!?
I'll move around after I take a nap, so I definitely won't get fat!
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Library[]

Date 1[]

Let's read manga
Guide Project Kaede 34
I like manga too!
Whenever I read manga with music as part of the main plot, I cry a lot since I can relate...
Guide Project Kaede 15
I know it's just fiction, but I feel like it's really happening...
Guide Project Kaede 16
How do I explain it? It motivates me to work harder.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
This is boring...
Guide Project Kaede 14
Really? It's not like we have to read a book with big words or anything...
Are you not in the mood to hang out with me?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's read a dirty book
Guide Project Kaede 08
Are you sexually harassing me!?
No way! I can't believe you're such a dirty pervert, Shuichi!
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 2[]

I'm getting sleepy...
Guide Project Kaede 09
Yeah, libraries make me sleepy too.
Guide Project Kaede 15
Maybe it's because there's no music playing in here.
Guide Project Kaede 34
Since it's just us here, I can play something in the background.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Sure is dusty in here
Guide Project Kaede 09
Now that you mention it, it is a bit dusty.
I wanna air it out, but...there are no windows here...
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, yeah! We should ask Keebo!
Remember? He has a cleaning function!
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's study
Guide Project Kaede 09
You're so serious, Shuichi.
I can practice playing the piano, but I can't study conventionally with a book...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 3[]

Let's look at a photo book of pianos
Guide Project Kaede 13
Ooh! A photo collection of pianos from around the world!
I think pianos are works of art.
Guide Project Kaede 15
They have complicated structures... And they're delicate and beautiful...
The piano sounds different depending on where it's placed and who plays it!
Guide Project Kaede 13
I could look at these pictures all day!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's make a tower of books
Guide Project Kaede 09
Um... I don't think it's a good idea to use a book like a toy...
Guide Project Kaede 15
But I guess it's better than having it all scattered on the floor.
Guide Project Kaede 16
Do you wanna race on who can stack the fastest?
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
I want to scream really loud!
Guide Project Kaede 02
Huh? Y-You wanna scream?
Guide Project Kaede 14
It's fine with just us here, but you shouldn't do that around other people, okay?
Guide Project Kaede 09
Even at concerts, some people clear their throats in the middle of a song...
And then the whole performance gets ruined.
Guide Project Kaede 06
Um, sorry.
Guide Project Kaede 18
It has nothing to do with you, but just remembering it made me sad...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Gym[]

Date 1[]

Let's get our bodies moving
Guide Project Kaede 15
Sure, anything is fine as long as I don't have to handle a ball!
A pianist's fingers are very important, so I have to be careful not to sprain mine.
Guide Project Kaede 16
I haven't exercised in awhile, so I'm really excited!
Moving around should help refresh us!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's clean up a little
Guide Project Kaede 14
If we ask Kirumi, she would clean the place perfectly...
But it might be sorta weird to ask her just because she's a maid.
Guide Project Kaede 16
Alright then! Let's clean and surprise everyone!
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
I'm tired...
Guide Project Kaede 06
Huh? You don't wanna be here at the gym?
I wanted to exercise a bit since we came here...
Guide Project Kaede 10
Unless...are you teasing me?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2[]

We should stretch
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, it's pretty important to stretch before a performance.
If you don't stretch before an intense performance, you can injure your fingers.
Guide Project Kaede 13
When we do our duet later, I'll show you.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Ah, maybe we should take off our clothes...?
Guide Project Kaede 08
Huuuuuuuuuh!? What did you say!?
Y-You're so...
Guide Project Kaede 42
I feel like you should say that *after* you take me out to a date...
Guide Project Kaede 07
Wait! What am I saying!?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's play basketball
Guide Project Kaede 14
I'm scared I'll sprain my fingers, so I'll pass.
It's not like I can go to a hospital here either...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 3[]

I'll just watch you...
Guide Project Kaede 15
I had to watch from the bench during P.E. in case I broke my fingers.
Guide Project Kaede 14
Aww, if you had gone to my school, we could've watched from the bench together.
Guide Project Kaede 22
...Just kidding.
But sitting next to you in class... That's making me blush...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's train...our minds...
Guide Project Kaede 06
Image training for the piano...?
Guide Project Kaede 14
Image training could be useful, but... I don't think we should be doing that...
If you wanna play the piano, why don't you play it in my research lab?
Guide Project Kaede 02
You say some weird things sometimes, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's burn this place to the ground
Guide Project Kaede 39
Even if you're joking, you shouldn't say that.
Don't say things that would make me hate you, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Courtyard[]

Date 1[]

Let's get some fresh air
Guide Project Kaede 13
It's probably just me, but the outside air always feels so refreshing.
Guide Project Kaede 29
Composing isn't my specialty, but I feel like I can compose a relaxing song right now.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's go for a run
Guide Project Kaede 09
Running, huh? I guess it's good to do that sometimes.
Guide Project Kaede 15
But I get tired pretty quickly, so please go easy on me.
Guide Project Kaede 34
If you leave me behind, then I won't teach you any piano! Got that?
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's go back inside
Guide Project Kaede 02
Huh? Then why did we come outside?
Guide Project Kaede 31
I don't get you, Shuichi...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 2[]

Let's relax in the sun
Guide Project Kaede 09
Everything in my mind just floats away whenever I relax in the sun.
Although, I feel like that's a bad thing...
Guide Project Kaede 16
But, sometimes it's good to take it easy.
Alright! I've decided then!
I'm not gonna think about the smaller things in life and just relax to the fullest!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's dance!
Guide Project Kaede 14
I wish we had a song to dance to...
Isn't it a little embarrassing if it's too quiet?
Guide Project Kaede 29
Oh! Are you gonna take the lead, Shuichi? I'll dance if you do.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
What a great view...
Guide Project Kaede 17
It's better than the dorms, but we're still trapped here...
A great view, huh? I don't see it that way...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 3[]

I want to get outside as soon as I can...
Guide Project Kaede 34
Right!? There are so many things I wanna do once we escape!
Guide Project Kaede 09
Listening to new music... Playing my piano...
Guide Project Kaede 16
Yeah! I'm getting excited just thinking about it!
Let's get out of this dumb academy!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
I've gotten used to being here...
Guide Project Kaede 14
Well, I guess that's the same for me too...
But, don't think it's okay to stay here forever.
Guide Project Kaede 10
We're trapped in this place without even knowing why...
It's just not possible!
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Staying here forever wouldn't be so bad
Guide Project Kaede 11
What are you saying!? You definitely can't stay here!
We gotta work together and find a way out of here, okay!?
Guide Project Kaede 18
I assumed you felt the same way as me, but...you don't, do you?
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

General Reactions[]

These dialogues are the reactions Shuichi will receive at the end of the date, depending on which choice was made.

Best Option
Guide Project Kaede 13
I had such a great time!
It's been awhile since I had this much fun doing something other than the piano!
Guide Project Kaede 22
If you want...let's hang out again.
Guide Project Kaede 42
I want to know more about you, Shuichi...
L-Let's walk back to the dorms together!
Good Option
Guide Project Kaede 13
Well, that was enjoyable! Why do I have so much fun hanging out with you?
Maybe you know how to make it fun for other people, Shuichi.
Guide Project Kaede 15
Okay, let's head back to the dorms.
Bad Option
Guide Project Kaede 31
Ummm...I'm a little tired.
Sorry, but I'm gonna head back now.
Worst Option
Guide Project Kaede 18
If I knew this was gonna happen, I would've played the piano by myself instead...
I'm gonna head back first...

Harmonious Heart[]

Harmonious Heart is a minigame in Love Across the Universe. It uses mechanics similar to the Non Stop Debate trial minigame during Class Trials. During this event, Shuichi will get insight into Kaede's inner thoughts, and can refute or confirm something she is anxious about by using special Truth Bullets called "deny" and "affirm". Successfully navigating this event is necessary to unlock Kaede's ending.

Transcript[]

Kaede's Harmonious Heart
Guide Project Kaede 18
Not again...
God, this always happens...
I'm always thinking about the piano...
even when I'm with Shuichi, of all people!
I'm so rude...
Guide Project Kaede 31
If only I were better at focusing on what's in front of me...
then I wouldn't be in this mess...
Guide Project Kaede 18
*sigh*
This is why everyone calls me Piano Freak...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
She seems deeply troubled by something...

Options[]

Deny: Piano Freak
Guide Project Shuichi 08
You're not a "piano freak," Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 14
No, I *am* a Piano Freak.
I play the piano whenever I have any free time...
Guide Project Kaede 18
I'm okay with that. But I think about the piano when I'm with someone else...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Even if that's true, I don't mind.
Actually, I'm a little jealous that you have a skill that you can put your time into.
I think of it as another thing that's amazing about you, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 44
...
I'm glad I met you, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 10
What...?
Guide Project Kaede 22
N-Nothing.
Guide Project Kaede 16
Anyway, let's do a duet again! I'm gonna be stricter than usual!
Guide Project Shuichi 27
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Deny: rude
Guide Project Shuichi 08
No, that's not rude at all.
Guide Project Kaede 36
But you wouldn't like it when you're with someone who's not paying attention...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
I know that you love piano, Kaede.
I would never tell you to stop thinking about the thing you love.
Guide Project Kaede 22
...
Thanks...
But I'll try not to think of other things when I'm with you.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Kaede, really...
Guide Project Kaede 13
No, I'm serious.
When I'm with you, I want to focus on our time together.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
I think this conversation went well.
Affirm: rude
Guide Project Shuichi 08
...That is true, I suppose it doesn't feel good to know your mind is elsewhere.
Guide Project Kaede 31
You're right... I already know that...
But before I realized it, I was already thinking it...
Guide Project Kaede 18
*sigh*
If I'm going to be so rude, then maybe I shouldn't be with anyone...
Guide Project Shuichi 11
It seems like that didn't go well...
Affirm: Piano Freak
Guide Project Shuichi 06
It is true that you're always thinking about the piano...
Guide Project Kaede 31
Yeah, and I can't help it...
Guide Project Kaede 18
And it's not good to put others in a bad mood, you know...
If I knew this was gonna happen, I should've stayed in my room alone instead...
Guide Project Shuichi 07
No, not at all, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 18
If someone did the same thing to me...
...I'd feel so horrible. It's the worst thing you can do...
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Damn, this is awkward...

Kaede's Graduation Event[]

If Shuichi has achieved all 10 hearts by the 10th day of Love Across the Universe, he will unlock Kaede's Graduation Event.

Kaede's Graduation Event
Before I left the academy... I decided to talk alone with Kaede.
This is the last day we'll spend at this academy...
This school life was crazy, but now that I think back on it, we had some good times.
Guide Project Kaede 14
It's finally our last day here...
I'm definitely happy, but...I'm sorta disappointed...
I just kept thinking about...the worst possible situation.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Yes...but I'm glad nothing happened.
Actually, believe it or not, right now I'm almost glad I was brought here.
Guide Project Kaede 06
Huh? But why? Did something good happen?
Guide Project Shuichi 27
A lot of good things happened. I met you, Kaede...
Guide Project Kaede 42
...
You say really embarrassing things so easily, Shuichi...
Guide Project Shuichi 14
Ah, y-you think so?
Guide Project Kaede 22
A-Anyway, do you still remember? You know...about coming over to my house?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Of course.
I was thinking about going over for a visit as soon as we get out.
Guide Project Kaede 15
Then, you remember what you're doing once you come over, right?
Guide Project Shuichi 06
What we're going to do at Kaede's house...
Meet her parents
Guide Project Shuichi 08
I'm going to meet your parents, right?
Guide Project Kaede 22
I wanted to introduce you to my parents, too... But that wasn't it.
Also, meeting my parents...might be a bit too fast...
Guide Project Shuichi 09
Th-That's true... Sorry.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That was wrong. What was I going to do at her house?
Take Kaede's piano
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Take your piano, right?
Guide Project Kaede 11
We never talked about that!
The piano at my house is my partner! I would never give it to you!
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That was wrong. What was I going to do at her house?
Practice the piano duet
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Practice the piano duet. See how much I've improved.
Guide Project Kaede 09
Yeah, we played a lot with the piano here, but I want us to play on *my* piano.
I want to see how well we can sync our timing...our breathing...
Guide Project Kaede 13
I want you to listen to the sound of my piano.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
I'm sure that a piano *that* important to you makes a beautiful sound, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 34
It's not like it costed a million dollars or anything, but the quality is still top-notch.
Guide Project Shuichi 27
...
Guide Project Kaede 14
Wh-Why are you quiet all of a sudden?
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Ah, I was just thinking about how happy I was to meet you, Kaede.
If I never met you, I never would have found the beauty of piano...
I would never know how much fun it is to play or the richness of its sound...
I'm so happy that you showed me those things, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 13
But I'm not done yet.
Guide Project Shuichi 07
What?
Guide Project Kaede 13
I haven't taught you all the amazing things about the piano yet!
I'll be your tutor and teach you everything!
Guide Project Kaede 22
We have all the time in the world now...
Guide Project Kaede 42
...right?
Guide Project Shuichi 27
...Yeah. You're right.
We have all the time in the world. Once we're free.
And I want to spend every second of it with you.
There might be bad times, sure...
I know it won't always be easy.
But I know...that I'm looking forward to my future with Kaede.
And I know that she feels the same way.
We may not have said it in words, but... I feel like we didn't need to.
And thus, our days at the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles...
came to an end.

After completing Kaede's Love Across the Universe ending, you will receive the following Present:

128. Kaede's Undergarments
DRv3 Present 128 Kaede's Undergarments Kaede's favorite panties. A basic and popular pink color with modest lace.
