|Captivated by the Twins|
Captivated by the Twins is a Kazuha/Futaba ending and one of 12 possible third episodes in Shiny Days.
Captivated by the Twins follows the orange variant of the the chapter 3 lower branch plot up to the night of the festival.
Makoto calls Karen. Because she went to the toilet, Futaba picks up the phone and convinces Makoto to hang out before the festival with them. When Karen comes back, the twins lie and tell her Makoto is busy and can’t go to the festival. They also say Otome called and they told her she was at Radish. Karen, afraid Otome will find her, leaves Radish.
Outside, Futaba reveals she learned Makoto’s secret. When she took a wrong door looking for the toilet at Radish, she found Makoto having sex with Youko. The twins go to Makoto’s house and they have sex the entire night. At the station, Setsuna, Kokoro and Kotonoha are waiting for Makoto, but he never comes.
Route EditCaptivated by the Twins follows the orange variant of the lower branch of the chapter 3 storyline. It shares a node in the route map with Banquet of Mothers.
The key to getting Captivated by the Twins is to not seduce Manami during Makoto's late night visit to the Radish (it does not appear to matter if he seduces Mai or not).
Then, on the day of the festival, whether or not Makoto decides to return Karen's call comes down to the state of the bar. If the bar is low enough, he will return Karen's call and begin the chain of events that leads to Captivated by the Twins.
If the bar is sufficiently low, but Manami was previously seduced, the ending will be Banquet of Mothers instead.
There are two variants of Captivated by the Twins. They are based on whether or not Makoto guessed "Kazuha?" when Futaba answered Karen's phone. There are scene and dialogue differences between the two variants, but do not change the route or ending.
- If Makoto guessed that Kazuha had answered the phone, then Futaba gets the impression that Makoto is in love with Kazuha, and her plan involves setting them up as boyfriend and girlfriend (but to also share him for sexual purposes).
- If Makoto did not guess "Kazuha?" on the phone, then Futaba's plan is simply for her and Kazuha to share a relationship with Makoto.
Some reports indicate that the route map node may not be filled in until you have completed both Captivated by the Twins and Banquet of Mothers.
