Highlighted characters are optional and will not join you automatically.
This guide is not formatted like a recruitment walkthrough; characters are presented in the order that you would usually recruit them, but some of them may require events to be completed earlier in the game. If you are looking to recruit all 108 characters, we recommend either using the walkthrough from the sidebar or scanning ahead in the guide before moving along in the story.
Warning: As with most guides on Suikosource, this guide contains spoilers; if you are using it to get all 108 stars on your first playthrough, beware.
