Korekiyo Shinguji Bonus Mode Pixel Icon (7)
This article covers Korekiyo Shinguji'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 Korekiyo'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 Korekiyo's Free Time Event route, see: Free Time Events/Korekiyo Shinguji.

After completing Korekiyo'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), Korekiyo's Harmonious Heart event will be triggered at random, which is a Non-Stop Debate style minigame that gives Shuichi an insight into Korekiyo's inner thoughts.

Achieving 10 hearts will unlock Korekiyo'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. Korekiyo'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 bugs
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
Kehehe... You have good taste.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
The cultural relationship between humans and insects is fascinating.
Some see them as vermin, some food, others worship them as gods...
I shall teach you all about it as we watch this documentary...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Watch a documentary on athletes
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
That may prove interesting...
Sports are an incredibly important aspect of many cultures.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Or Shuichi...do you simply enjoy watching female athletes?
Perhaps the sight of women clenching their teeth and sweating excites you?
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe...I'm only kidding.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Watch a documentary on mediums
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
I regret to say it as you've taken an interest...but this footage is fake.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
I know from my own experience.
I've performed seances myself, so I can tell at a glance if they are authentic.
Guide Project Korekiyo 08
My goodness...charlatans like this harm the reputations of true practitioners.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2

Watch a drama movie
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
Kehehe... We are of the same mind, Shuichi.
Humanity is beautiful... A film about such a topic cannot possibly be boring.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
I am most curious to see how this depicts the beauty of humanity.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Watch an anime movie
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
Ah, it's a love story between a sister and her brother.
This may not be so bad after all...
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Just as there are many different cultures, there are many forms of love.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Let us see what kind of love this anime depicts then, shall we?
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Watch an action movie
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
Sorry, but I've no interest in these. I find the sensory overload exhausting.
Further, they have little in the way of anthropological interest.
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 3

We should focus on reality, not movies
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... I have been waiting to hear such words.
Anthropology is all about field work... Investigating in person is critical.
References are important, but one's own experience is far more so.
Guide Project Korekiyo 20
I am glad you are coming to understand anthropology so well.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
I might fall asleep...
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
In that case, would you like to receive a lecture instead of watching a movie?
Very well...
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Perhaps we shall dig deeper into the tale of Hainuwele I told you before.
Kehehe... Worry not. I shall never bore you.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Play dominoes with the movie boxes
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I cannot admire such a suggestion...
Those interested in such banal activities are ill-suited as seekers of culture.
I thought you had the qualities of an anthropologist, but I was mistaken...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Dining Room

Date 1

Let's cook something
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Then I will serve you something.
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
I know a variety of ethnic dishes... Is there anything specific you crave?
"Ethnic food" is but a single term, but the variety it covers is endless...
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
I will most definitely find something to suit your palette.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's eat some candy
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
Are you scheming to make me take off my mask?
Guide Project Korekiyo 08
If so, I would've preferred you say so from the beginning.
The thought of being victim to some scheme does not please me.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's drink something
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
No, I will decline...
Unfortunately, I did not bring my mealtime mask.
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
If we were going to eat or drink, I'd have preferred you told me beforehand...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
You could just take off your mask and drink it...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 2

Let's try fasting
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... Are you interested in the customs of fasting?
If so, I will join you.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
There may be something to be discovered by imitating them.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's have some tea
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Not a bad suggestion...
It is too bad, though, that this place has no snacks suitable for tea.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
If there were some insects, I could've prepared some ethnic sweets for you.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
No offense to Gonta, but I'm glad there aren't any bugs around.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's go in the freezer
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
Is that some form of self-discipline...?
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
Perhaps it hones some qualities needed for a detective...
However, I do not feel it is necessary for me...
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 3

Getting horny after a meal
Guide Project Korekiyo 09
Hmm... Are you a person with a strong sense of lust?
There is nothing wrong with lust.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
But there is one thing you should never forget.
Guide Project Korekiyo 17
True love is not a physical connection, but a mental connection...
I would appreciate if you kept that in the back of your mind at all times.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Taking a nap after a meal
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Obeying desires is one way to live... but you may miss things when asleep.
If you wish to pursue the path of an anthropologist, you must stay vigilant.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
I'm not trying to become an anthropologist or anything...
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Exercising after a meal
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I do not agree with that philosophy...
Exercising after a meal is a practice of modern times to maintain physique.
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
I would prefer you spend time giving thanks for the lives you have eaten.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Library

Date 1

Let's read a dirty book
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... Well of course. You are a boy, after all, Shuichi.
Such desires are appropriate for a human. I don't look down upon them.
Guide Project Korekiyo 17
But I have already given my heart to someone, so I cannot join you.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's read manga
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Oh, as I've mentioned before...
Anime and manga often use folklore and myth as a base for their stories.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
This is perfect. Today I will teach you using these manga.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
This is boring...
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
With this much literature before you, you claim you are bored...?
The wisest man is he who knows he knows nothing.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Perhaps it would serve you well to have more curiosity...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2

Let's study
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... An admirable suggestion.
The more you desire knowledge, the quicker it will come.
How about we discuss the qualities of goddesses across different mythologies?
They may all be "goddesses," but each is a different image of womanhood.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Sure is dusty in here
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Oh? I didn't notice anything.
Guide Project Shuichi 33
...Ah.
It's because you're wearing a mask!
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
I'm getting sleepy...
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
Do you get sleepy in especially quiet places, Shuichi?
I won't speak ill of sleepiness itself. It is a basic human instinct.
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
But living only by one's instincts will push one away from knowing culture.
For this reason...it may be advisable for you to fight your drowsiness.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 3

Let's make a tower of books
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Towers are a very interesting theme in anthropology.
Why people associate physical height with authority and power...
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
There are many papers about this. It is central to understanding humanity.
What do you think? I would like to hear your opinion.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's look at the world map
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... Excellent choice. I do rather enjoy maps.
They're perfect...for remembering all the lands I've been to.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
In addition, I find pleasure in dreaming of lands I've yet to visit.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
I want to scream really loud!
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
I dislike loud noises...
If you must scream, do it elsewhere.
I cannot fathom why you feel the need to scream here in the first place.
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Gym

Date 1

Let's clean up a little
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
That is a very good suggestion...
Many important documents are often discovered during cleaning.
Perhaps I will discover some new knowledge while cleaning this room...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's get our bodies moving
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
A wonderful suggestion.
Physical strength is essential for field work.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
So first, let us begin with basic strength training.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
I'm tired...
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
That strikes me as a distinct lack of proper planning...
Imagine we were doing fieldwork on some far-off mountain.
Guide Project Korekiyo 08
In such a situation, you could die if left behind, yes?
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 2

Let's warm up a bit
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
That is not a bad suggestion.
Whether or not one's goal can be met is determined during one's warm-up.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
That is what I believe...
There is no such thing as being too cautious or planning too far ahead.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
You should continue strengthening those aspects of yourself, Shuichi.
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 Korekiyo 01
Are you trying to get me to take my mask off, Shuichi...?
I'm sorry, but now is not the time for that.
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
Sister has not yet determined whether or not you are to be trusted.
Guide Project Shuichi 22
Sister? ...What is he talking about?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...
Let's play basketball
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I will decline...
I cannot find anything about that game that piques my interest.
Guide Project Shuichi 02
Damn, this is awkward...

Date 3

I'll be the referee
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
If I were to involve myself with sports, then the post of referee would suit me.
Though they stand next to the court, a referee is still an outsider...
It is the same with an anthropologist doing fieldwork in an uncivilized land.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
It seems you have begun to understand the process of fieldwork, Shuichi...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's burn this place to the ground
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
I doubt there would be any documents of anthropological value here.
So setting this building aflame is an option available to us.
But I would prefer to leave that until after I have ingestigated thoroughly.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
After my investigation, however, I will assist you.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's play dodgeball
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
Is such a game possible with only us two?
Or is there a special rule I am unaware of?
If so, then I am curious to hear it...
Guide Project Korekiyo 15
But if you are making fun of me, I shall tear your nerves from your skin.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Courtyard

Date 1

Let's get some fresh air
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
The purity of nature is a common theme across many cultures.
Sometimes, the taste of the air can be an indicator of location or weather.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
Ooh...just speaking of it has made me want to travel to far-off lands.
Perhaps you would like to accompany me on my travels once we escape.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's go for a run
Guide Project Korekiyo 21
I'm not fond of vigorous exercise, but... perhaps it will be enjoyable.
It is through many different experiences that one is able to understand humanity.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... Being with you has gained me a number of new experiences.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Let's relax in the sun
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I will decline...
I have some manner of condition where I overheat after being in the sun too long.
Guide Project Shuichi 07
...Probably because you're wearing all black clothes...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
It seems like that didn't go well...

Date 2

Let's go for a walk
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe...an absolutely wonderful suggestion.
On-the-spot surveys are a cornerstone of fieldwork.
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
To be honest, meeting local people is best for expanding one's knowledge...
But it would be fruitless to talk to Monokuma or his progeny.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
So you and I shall thoroughly investigate this school together.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Let's dance!
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
This, too, relates to anthropology.
Anthropology and dancing are, in fact, very deeply related.
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
You've heard of ethnic dance before, yes?
Sometimes, a culture's customs and history are demonstrated through dance.
You seem more and more like an anthropologist every day, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
What a great view...
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
Do you think so...?
Somehow, my senses are telling me this view is fake.
Guide Project Korekiyo 11
Well, there are times when amateurs are more on the mark.
Perhaps we shall avoid debating this topic.
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 Korekiyo 05
I also look forward to traveling the country with you after we escape.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
Humanity is beautiful... I wish for you to experience that truth firsthand.
With you there, I feel I shall enjoy humanity's beauty all the more.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
I've gotten used to being here...
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
Now that I think of it, so have I. Don't become too attached, however.
Life is meant to be a series of encounters and farewells.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Interacting with others is so enjoyable because it is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
With that knowledge, let us fully enjoy this moment together.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think this conversation went well.
Staying here forever wouldn't be so bad
Guide Project Korekiyo 07
I cannot agree with that opinion...
Have you forgotten our promise to travel the country together?
Guide Project Korekiyo 11
It was a promise I made to you and you alone... I feel a bit betrayed...
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 Korekiyo 10
Thanks to you, I had a very enjoyable time.
To have had such an enjoyable time outside of field work...
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
Kehehe... You are a very mysterious person, Shuichi.
I wonder how your hometown affected you. I grow curious to see it.
Now, shall we head back together?
Good Option
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
I'm grateful to you for showing me a fun time. Please invite me again.
There is much I wish to teach you about the appeal of anthropology.
Now then, perhaps we should head back.
Bad Option
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
"I was able to have a wonderful time..."
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
Were I to say such a thing it would be a lie.
Perhaps it is necessary for you to first consider the feelings of others...
Now then, I shall head back first...
Worst Option
Guide Project Korekiyo 15
...
You wish for me to tear out your nerves?

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 Korekiyo's inner thoughts, and can refute or confirm something he is anxious about by using special Truth Bullets called "deny" and "affirm". Successfully navigating this event is necessary to unlock Korekiyo's ending.

Transcript

Korekiyo's Harmonious Heart
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I find myself alone with Shuichi...
What shall today's topic be...?
Guide Project Korekiyo 21
A passionate discussion about anthropology...?
But he may have grown tired of that...
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Perhaps a new topic is in order...
The principles of love...
Guide Project Korekiyo 17
But love must be cultivated in one's own heart...
It is not a topic to discuss with others...

Options

Affirm: passionate discussion about anthropology
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Yes, teach me anthropology.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... It seems your interest in anthropology has not waned, after all.
I would be happy if you were able to spread your knowledge as I did to you.
The spread of knowledge is an important aspect of the beauty of humanity.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
That's what you've taught me. I never would have known all this without you.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
I am a very lucky anthropologist to have a student such as you.
Guide Project Shuichi 27
Good, it seems like we both had a lot of fun.
Deny: love...
Guide Project Shuichi 09
Love is a tough subject... It might not be something to discuss with others.
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
I'm very happy to hear you say that.
Because it means that...you share my philosophy on love.
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Love is something to be cultivated within, not discussed with others.
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
But for someone like you, who understands me so well...
Perhaps some day...we will be able to discuss such things together.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
I think this conversation went well.
Deny: passionate discussion about anthropology
Guide Project Shuichi 08
I'm a bit tired of talking about anthropology...
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
It is as I feared...
In every study comes a time of stagnation.
Guide Project Korekiyo 11
If only I were able to have taught you in a more interesting manner...
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Ah, no, it's not your fault...
Guide Project Korekiyo 11
No, a student's stagnation is, without a doubt, the teacher's failing.
I am...so sorry I was unable to sustain your interest in anthropology.
Guide Project Shuichi 11
It seems like that didn't go well...
Affirm: love...
Guide Project Shuichi 32
I want to hear about love from you, Kiyo.
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I am glad you are interested, but...
People should contemplate love by themselves.
There is nothing to be gained by speaking of it with others.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Ah, is that right...?
Guide Project Korekiyo 06
Perhaps you cannot understand? I may have overestimated you...
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Damn, this is awkward...

Korekiyo's Graduation Event

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

Korekiyo's Graduation Event
Before I left the academy... I decided to talk alone with Kiyo.
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 Korekiyo 05
There was a surprising amount to be gained during our time here.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Strangely, I...had a lot of fun too. I also learned a lot about folklore.
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
Kehehe... You truly do have the talent to be an anthropologist.
Being able to enjoy learning is an important talent in any study.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
By the way...do you recall your promise? Our plans for when we left this place?
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Our promise? If I'm remembering correctly...
Meet his older sister
Guide Project Shuichi 07
You were going to introduce me to your older sister, weren't you?
Guide Project Korekiyo 04
I don't recall making such a promise...
Did I speak of Sister at some point...?
How do you know about her, Shuichi?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Ah, um, just a hunch...?
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That was wrong. The promise we made was...
Become his apprentice
Guide Project Shuichi 07
To become your apprentice?
Guide Project Korekiyo 02
What are you saying? Shuichi, you're already my top pupil.
Besides, that's different from your promise, right?
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That was wrong. The promise we made was...
Travel around together
Guide Project Shuichi 32
To travel together, right, Kiyo?
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... So it seems you haven't forgotten.
Yes, I want to see with your own eyes the beauty of humanity as I know it.
If I go with you, I know I can discover the beauty of humanity all over again.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
So...I will ask you once more. Will you travel the country with me?
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Of course. You always look like you're having fun, no matter where you are.
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
Kehehe...I thought you might say that, Shuichi.
Guide Project Korekiyo 01
Oh, and...there's someone I want to introduce you to once we get out of here.
Guide Project Shuichi 07
Introduce me to?
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
My lover.
She and I are fated to be together. We've promised each other our undying love...
I think that you would get along with Sister just fine.
Guide Project Shuichi 07
...Sister? Ah, I see, my mistake. I thought you said *lover*...
Guide Project Korekiyo 05
Kehehe... All will be clear once we get out of this place.
Guide Project Korekiyo 10
More importantly, Shuichi... Thank you for being my friend.
Guide Project Korekiyo 03
It would make me very happy if you could be friends with Sister, too...
Guide Project Shuichi 13
...I still don't have the Sister and lover situation figured out yet.
But I feel like I'd be friends with anyone Kiyo introduced me to.
I realize now that I have an unwavering trust in him.
And thus, our days at the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles...
came to an end.

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

119. Korekiyo's Undergarments
DRv3 Present 119 Korekiyo's Undergarments Korekiyo'a favorite bikini bottoms. The stoic color and sexy form represent the beauty of humanity.
