MCL Episode 38 Guide

By request! Like last time, this is based off @kizmetcandy‘s guides for the most part, but with… random helpful interjections and in order of the Episode over character divided. I just personally find it easier laid out like that.

As a note, I have not had time to play every route myself just yet so some options may be translated versus the official translation due to my not having found them in English. Anything with a ~ is a translation and thus, may not be 100% accurate of the line (but the choice percentages are right!)

I will continue updating until all choices and things are set, but hopefully this helps people out!

–      Negative result for LOM
/      Neutral result for LOM
+     Positive result for LOM

/ or + Means my Love’O’Meter with that character is Maxed so the result is either neutral or positive

If an answer does not have -, /, or + beside it, I have no idea what the result is.

Action Points: ~350-500 This AP cost is from before UL’s changes.

Illustrations: Five total. One with Nathaniel, One with Castiel, One with Lysander, One with Armin, Alexy, & Evan, and One with Kentin. You can get up to three on one playthrough if you’re on Nathaniel’s, Castiel’s or Lysander’s route. Otherwise, you can only get up to two. You need to play at least three times for all of them. Kentin’s illustration requires at least 80 LoM with him.

Auntie: Found after you wake up in the Library the first time. After going to the Courtyard and confirming the school is locked and the walls are too high, head back into the school and you can find her in the Cafeteria. DO NOT accidentally go to the Basement while going back and forth as that will cause the objective to change and you’ll no longer be able to get it.


Rainbow Wig – Short, Curly, and Long are all available. Which you get is random (what hairstyle you have has no effect on it). You need to play at least three times to get them all.

Hidden Item:  You must be confident about doing well on the exams–specifically, after you get home from falling asleep at the library, Candy should say “I think I did pretty well. I’m rather confident!”* when asked about how she thinks she did by her parents. The next day, after some dialogue with your dad when you head downstairs, you’re recommended to go for a walk. THIS is when you can get the watch if you got that dialogue. Simply go back and forth between the apartment and going outside until you get the message “(I realized I had forgotten my keys in my bag.)”–you will then go up to your room and run into your dad who will give you the watch. Like with Aunt Agatha, this is not instant and can take a while.  If you go up to the bus stop after getting Kentin’s call, you miss your chance. Even if you get Kentin’s call first, you can still get the watch as long as you do not go to the bus stop.


Flower Watch

*To get the best possible grades on your exam, you need to go to the Study Session instead of meeting Evan. Supposedly the choice doesn’t matter about history, but I picked A. I ran into Melody this afternoon who was studying history and got it.


Drink at the Cafe $3 for Lemonade, $5 for Hot Chocolate, or $4 for Iced Tea (Optional–if you go to the Cafe after the Study Session, you have to get a drink though)
Castiel’s Outfit $105
Nathaniel’s Outfit $190
Lysander’s Outfit $130
Food for Li $5 (Optional)
Bus Ticket to Hospital $10



Outfit 1 (with the Backpack) – Castiel’s Illustration
Outfit 2 (With the jacket) – Nathaniel’s Illustration
Outfit 3 (With the skirt) – Lysander’s Illustration
The outfit choice does not matter for Armin’s and Kentin’s illustrations–as long as you pick the right dialogue option you can get each. You need at least 80 LoM with Kentin for his though.

The Episode starts off from where 37 left off so:

After fighting with Kentin, he’ll head back inside and your boyfriend will come out to comfort you or Alexy will if you’re dating Kentin. They’ll take you home. After more dialogue, you’ll wake up after having gone to sleep and head downstairs. Once you’ve spoken to your parents, you can head to school.

There’s no dialogue on the way, so feel free to take the bus. Once you’re at school, you need to find Kim. She’s in the Garden, Gym, or Science Room:

Kim: Great! Did you have a good weekend?

A. Uh… Yeah. /
B. No… I had a horrible weekend. /
C. Yes, things are good, why? –

You then need to run into Kentin. You can find him upstairs or in Classroom B. You won’t have any dialogue choices with him.

Next, find Alexy. You can find him in the Courtyard or Classroom B.

If you’re not dating Kentin:

Alexy: He’s really gone too far…

A. Yeah, he is acting like an idiot. /
B. It makes me sad. +
C. Couldn’t you talk to him? –

If you’re dating Kentin:

A. I’m so angry! +
B. Do you think I should go apologize?
C. I don’t know what to do…  /

After that, find Lysander in Classroom A. Once again, no dialogue choices.

Finally, find Armin in the library. You’ll only have a dialogue choice with him if you’re dating him.

Armin: How is my princess Zelda?

A. I’m not a princess! –
B. You are the princess! +
C. She is waiting to be saved. /

After that, head to Patrick’s Class in the Art Room. If you’re dating Lysander, Kentin, or Armin, you will sit next to Iris. Otherwise, you will have dialogue with Castiel or Nathaniel to sit next to them.

If you’re dating Castiel, you have dialogue at the start of class:

Castiel: I saved you a seat, girly.

A. Thanks! /
B. Who said that I wanted to sit with you? +
C. You are too cute, thanks. –

If you’re dating Nathaniel, you have dialogue towards the end of class:

Nathaniel: Why do you say that?

A. Because it’s true… /
B. I’ve been distracted recently. +
C. It’s just a feeling… –

Once class is over, head back downstairs and you’ll talk to Iris, Kim, and Nathaniel at the bottom of the staircase. Once the conversation is over, exit to the hall to head to your locker and you’ll run into Violette.

Violette: I love fair rides. And you?

A. Not really. –
B. Yeah, me too! +
C. I don’t really know… /

After talking to Violette, it’s time to head to lunch. Make your way to the cafeteria. Rosalya will be sitting with whoever your boyfriend is or with Alexy if you’re dating Kentin.

If you’re dating Armin:

Armin: Do you want me to try to talk to Kentin too?

A. It’s not worth it. –
B. Let it go. /
C. Definitely not! +

If you’re dating Castiel:

Castiel: Believe me, it won’t just be adolescent provocation…

A. Calm down, Castiel… –
B. I don’t think that would do anything. /
C. I don’t need a body guard, chill out! +

If you’re dating Nathaniel:

Nathaniel: Do you want me to try and talk to him?

A. I don’t think that’s a good idea. /
B. Definitely not! +
C. No. –

If you’re dating Lysander:

Lysander: I almost want to go talk to him, what do you say [Name]?

A. No. +
B. I don’t think that’s a very good idea. –
C. It’s useless. –

If you’re dating Kentin, you’ll talk to Rosalya:

Rosalya: Are you kidding me? Evan and Kentin are imbeciles! If I run into one of them, they aren’t going to hear the end of it! I swear!

A. I don’t think that’s necessary… –
B. Wow… +
C. I would prefer not.

Once Lunch is over, leave the cafeteria. You want some air so head out to the Courtyard. You should run into Melody in either the Courtyard or Garden. After talking to her, head back to the second Hallway. Then head to the Staircase where you will be prompted with… A CHOICE.

Evan: *** Are you free, now? ***

A. Sure, I’m free! – No LoM changes, but chances to change Evan’s. You’ll also get the flashback with Kentin. You will not be able to get the Hidden Item though and at most, you’ll only do “Okay” on the Exams. You also have a chance to do bad on them. You’ll also get a conversation with your boyfriend outside in the courtyard.
B. No, I have other plans. – with Evan. You have a chance to do well on the tests and get the hidden item.

If you choose A:

Once you’ve finished talking to Evan, head to the courtyard. You’ll run into your boyfriend in the courtyard (Or if you’re dating Nathaniel, in the Hall), unless you’re dating Kentin in which you’ll run into nobody.

If you’re dating Armin:

Armin: I know there are sales on Steam today, but still… That surprises me coming from you!

A. On what? –
B. No, I was just leaving. /
C. Believe me, I would have preferred that! /

Armin: Well, if you aren’t going shopping on Steam, where are you going?

A. (Find an excuse.) – (later)
B. (Tell the truth.) + or /

If you choose A:

No additional choices.

If you choose B: 

Armin: Aren’t you tired of running around for Kentin when he clearly doesn’t want to be helped?

A. Yes, I’m tired of it. –
B. Do you have a better idea? –
C. I thought you would understand… /

If you’re dating Castiel:

Castiel: You seem to be in a hurry. Where are you going?

A. (Find an excuse.) – (later)
B. (Tell the truth.)  /

If you choose A: 

No additional choices.

If you choose B:

Castiel: You’ve been taking care of Kentin’s problems a bit too much, don’t you think?

A. Yes, you are right. /
B. I don’t have the choice. –
C. He’s my friend. –

If you’re dating Lysander: 

A. (Find an excuse) – (later)
B. (Tell the truth.) / or +

If you choose A:

No additional choices.

If you choose B:

Lysander: And seeing what it does to you, I don’t know if it’s really worth it that you bend over backwards for him… ~

A. I don’t really have a choice… /
B. Yes, you’re probably right… –
C. I thought you would understand… –

If you’re dating Nathaniel:

Nathaniel: You aren’t coming to study with us?

A. (Find an excuse)  – (later)
B. (Tell the truth.) / or +

If you choose A:

No additional choices.

If you choose B: 

Nathaniel: Are you sure that this is what you want?

A. I don’t have the choice. –
B. Yes. /
C. I think… –

After some more dialogue, head to the park to meet Evan.

Evan: Meaning?

A. He is out of control! /
B. He is aggressive. –
C. You completely changed him!

After more dialogue and the first flashback, head to the Park Entrance.

Evan: But since they were still babies, they went to families, and I didn’t know if I would find them again one day.

A. Why didn’t you do anything to find them?
B. That must have been hard to not be able to do anything… +
C. How’s that? /

You’ll get more dialogue and another flashback. Then move towards the Dollar Shop for another flashback and more dialogue. Evan will then ask to head over to the Shops so head over there for the final bit of dialogue.

Then make your way Home. Once in your bedroom, you have a choice to make.

Candy: (On the other hand, I want to tell Rosa and Alexy about the encounter with Evan…)

A. (Study.) / You’ll do okay on your exams.
B. (Talk to Alexy and Rosa.) / You’ll do terrible on your exams.


If you choose B, that you’re busy:

Once you’re finished talking to Evan, head to the library.

Nathaniel: Okay, then. Let’s start with history then. Is that okay with you, [Name]?

A. I ran into Melody this afternoon who was studying history. + with Nathaniel, Kim, and Iris.
B. Do you have any idea of what the subject will be?  + with Nathaniel, Kim, and Iris
C. I have some doubts too. + with Nathaniel, Kim, and Iris.

Iris: Do you all want to go get a soda of something to celebrate our efficiency?

A. Sure! /
B. Not me, I’m going to head home. /

Which choice you pick has no effect on how you do. If you pick B, just leave the school and head home. If you pick A, head to the Cafe and you’ll get some more dialogue choices:

Server: Ahem, ahem… And for you?

A. A lemonade. / Spend $3
B. A hot chocolate. / Spend $5
C. An iced tea. / Spend $4

Iris: Do you think you’ll miss this school?

A. Not really… + with Iris, Kim, and Nathaniel
B. I think so, yeah… / with Iris, Kim, and Nathaniel
C. No way… – with Iris, / with Kim and Nathaniel

After some more dialogue, head home.


A. (Don’t send anything) /
B. (Send him a message) /

After some more dialogue in your bedroom, the next day starts and it’s time for school! First things first, pick your outfit! You want the one with the backpack for Castiel, the one with the jacket for Nathaniel, and the one with the skirt for Lysander. If you’re dating Armin or Kentin, choose which you like best.

Head downstairs and out the door and you’ll find your boyfriend waiting for you, unless you’re dating Kentin in which Rosalya is there to walk with you.

If you’re dating Armin: 

Armin: Did you know there was a colony of Growlithes in your neighborhood?

A. Gros-what? /
B. What?! Where? +
C. You still play that thing?

If you’re dating Castiel: 

Castiel: What do you think… I came to walk with you to school.

A. That’s nice.
B. You missed me too much? +
C. Why’s that?

A. (I slid my hand into his.)
B. (I leaned up against him.) ILLUSTRATION
C. (I put my arm around his waist…)

If you’re dating Nathaniel: 

Nathaniel: I was waiting for you so we could walk to school together.

A. That’s adorable. + or /
B. You can’t get enough of me? + or /
C. Are you scared I’m going to get lost? –

A. (I slid my hand into his.) /   ILLUSTRATION

If you’re dating Lysander:

C. I would like that. +

A. (I slid my hand into his.)
B. (I leaned up against him.) / ILLUSTRATION
C. (I put my arm around his waist…)

There is no choice dialogue with Rosa.

After some dialogue, walk around until you talk about whatever you did yesterday evening–whether it was meeting with Evan or your study session. I’ve had it trigger in the park, the park entrance, and the shops so. Once that’s done, head to school. After a bunch of dialogue with everyone, head into the school!

Once you get inside, you should get a message from the Principal over the intercom. If not, walk up and down the hall/into the staircase if needed until it pops up.

After receiving the message, head to Classroom A for your History Exam.

After finishing, head to the Student Council Room to find Melody and Iris (You can also find them at the top of the stairs in front of the Art + Science rooms). Then head to the Garden or one of the Classrooms to find Priya.

Priya: Well, as you can expect, there couldn’t have been a more interesting subject!

A. Why? /
B. Oh… –
C. I can imagine… /

After talking to Priya, head back into the school and you should run into Alexy (go up and down the halls if needed or from the courtyard and back into the school–You can also find him in Classroom B). You’ll talk about the future and College/University for a bit… Which sends your character into a panic attack. Run back to the Courtyard or Garden for some air and your boyfriend, or Violette if you’re dating Kentin, will come to calm you down.

Head back into school and down the hall. After some dialogue, head to the Science Room for your next exam.

After the Science Exam, head to the Locker Room for your Gym exam. You’ll run into Li and Amber talking.

Li: What are you looking at?

A. (Don’t say anything.) /
B. (Lend some money to Li.) / You give Li $5.

If you give Li money, Amber starts with you.

Amber: If you think that your little act of charity will make you our friend, you are so wrong!

A. (Ignore Amber.) /
B. That wasn’t why I did it. /
C. She’s your friend, you could have helped her. /

Head to the Gym to start the exam. Your gym partner is determined by whichever route you’re playing:

  • Castiel’s Route: Nathaniel will be your partner
  • Nathaniel’s Route: Castiel will be your partner
  • Lysander’s Route: Armin will be your partner
  • Armin’s Route: Lysander will be your partner
  • Kentin’s Route: Li will be your partner

If you don’t give Li money:

During the second part of the test, Li will collapse. Boris takes her to the nurse and the second group all have to start over. No LoM is effected, but your Candy will feel guilty.

After Gym class, you will run into Rosalya in the courtyard.  (If she doesn’t show up, go back and forth between the garden and courtyard until she does)

Rosalya: It may be her bad karma… She may have deserved it, after bothering everyone else.

A. That’s a bit mean… –
B. True. +
C. I feel a bit bad… / (and you confide in Rosa)

Otherwise, if you gave Li money:

When you leave the gym, you’ll run into Capucine who had been watching your panic attack… (If she doesn’t show up, go back and forth between the garden and courtyard until she does)

A. How is that your business? –
B. Yes, I’m better. +
C. It was nothing. /

After these conversations, head down the hall for some dialogue and then make your way to the Art Room for your art exam.

After you leave the room, you’ll run into Kentin. No choice dialogue again. Head back down the hall and you’ll have a conversation with Alexy (If it doesn’t trigger, go back and forth between the hall and courtyard until it does). Then head to the Courtyard to get some air.

Amber will show up if you’re dating anyone but Nathaniel, berate you because she does that. If you’re with Lysander or Armin, she has no choice dialogue for you.

If you’re dating Castiel or Kentin: 

Amber: Oh, did you get lost?

A. (I ignored Amber.)
B. And you? Did you lose your friend? /
C. I was just enjoying the calm. –

If you’re dating Nathaniel, Melody shows up instead.


Melody: I hope you realize that.

A. Oh? /
B. He just helped me study.
C. Jealousy really doesn’t suit you well, you know… –


Melody: Are you sure? I would bet that you hit the bullseye…

A. Then why did you ask? /
B. Is this all you have to do? –
C. Why does it interest you? /

After the confrontation with Amber or Melody, head back into the school and down the hall to your locker. You decide to study some more in the Library so go ahead and head there!

But alas, you fall asleep and wake up super late… And your phone is dead. Head out to the courtyard to confirm that, yes, the school is locked. After heading to the Courtyard, you have a chance to get Aunt Agatha’s item!

She shows up in the Cafeteria. Go back and forth between the cafeteria and staircase to get it! Once you have met her, head down to the Basement to move onto the next objective.

After some dialogue, you are properly woken up by Kentin who ended up being there late due to his detention. Head out to the Gardens and Kentin will help you leap over the wall.

A. What are you doing? /
B. Are you crazy?! (I thought of my dream all of a sudden…) –
C. (I understood what he wanted to do.) +

You’ll get over to the other side and he’ll follow shortly. Kentin then offers to walk you home. You’ll eventually get more dialogue (I’ve gotten it at the Cafe, Park Entrance, and shops so just walk until you get it).

Unfortunately, your conversation is interrupted when Evan shows up… Incredibly beaten up. Evan then collapses.

A. He must have been hit on the head. /
B. See where your nonsense will get you, Evan? – with Kentin, / with Evan
C. (I quickly went to help him too.) + with Kentin, / with Evan

With that, Kentin calls an ambulance and heads to the hospital with Evan so you walk home alone.

You run into your parents who were worried and explain what happened. They also ask how you think your exams went and if your Candy says  “I think I did pretty well. I’m rather confident!”, you have a chance to earn the Hidden item soon!

Head up to your room after talking to your parents and you’ll plug your phone in to charge. You’ll notice a text message from your boyfriend. Kentin’s text message is determined by your dialogue choice when Evan collapses, but the rest are all the same.

After some more dialogue, you fall asleep and then wake up and are panicking because you’re late… Except, when you get downstairs, your dad lets you know it’s Saturday.

Taking a breather, he suggests you go for a walk and pick up some breakfast for when your mom wakes up. Head up to your room to change into something more proper and then leave your house.

This is when you can get the Hidden item! Simply go back and forth between your Apartment and Outside until your Candy says (I realized I had forgotten my keys in my bag). She’ll automatically go up to her bedroom where she’ll run into her dad who has a surprise for her due to working so hard on her exams. 

Even if you get the message from Kentin during this, you can still get the Watch as long as you do not go to the bus.

Once you have the Hidden Item (if you were eligible for it/did good enough with your studies), walk around until you get Kentin’s phone call–I’ve gotten it outside my apartment, in the shops, the park, and the park entrance so just walk around until it pops up!

Once you get it (or if you already had it while trying to get the Hidden Item), you’ll have some more dialogue and then you can head to the bus stop to go to the hospital.

At the hospital, head inside and after some dialogue, take the elevator up to the third floor. Evan is in the same room Lysander was in–second door from the left.

Evan: Hey!

A. Evan, are you feeling better? +
B. Kentin, you wanted to see me? /
C. Hi. – with Kentin, / with Evan

After, head down to the Cafeteria to talk privately with Kentin.

Kentin: Thanks for coming…

A. I did not really have a choice. –
B. It seems you needed to talk. /
C. It’s normal. +

Kentin: He’s not always on his best behavior and I realize that… Neither am I when I’m in his presence.

A. It’s about time… –
B. That’s sad. /
C. Why would I care? –

Kentin: He went through much harder things when he arrived at military school.

A. That’s no excuse. –
B. Worse than what you went through?! /
C. What does that mean? +

Kentin: And to this day, I feel like I need to prove to him that I’m not that fragile little boy that he once knew.

A. Prove to him or to yourself? +
B. Yeah well, your cockfights are of no interest to me. –
C. And that’s how you go about things? /

You’ll then head to the Lobby and after some more dialogue, up to the 3rd floor hallway. After more dialogue, you’ll decide to head home so head back down the elevator and out of the hospital.

You’ll automatically go to your bedroom and the next day, will be meeting them at the Cafe with Alexy and Armin.

So, head downstairs and over to the Cafe where Armin and Alexy… aren’t thrilled. Especially Armin. Who is just done.

Evan: I told you a million times: Be a man, do not rely on others.

A. Shut up, Evan! – with Evan
B. That’s all you’ve got to say? / with Evan
C. You really didn’t listen to anything? + with Evan

Kentin: Wow. That’s a great opportunity…

A. Did you accept? / with Evan
B. Are you going to teach young people? – with Evan
C. Wow, congratulations. + with Evan

A. (I can’t help but watch the scene.) /
B. It’s pointless to try to know more… No need to be a keen observer to understand that this moment belongs to them.) / ILLUSTRATION
C. (I’m not going to try to learn more, it’s their business.) /

At this point, either you will have some more dialogue and it’ll end OR if you have Kentin at 80 LoM or higher or are dating him, he’ll ask you to take a walk with him. Walk to the park to start a conversation.

Kentin: Because… I really do not want to lose you.

A. You didn’t ruin anything. / ILLUSTRATION (You NEED at least 80 LoM for the illustration–even if you’re dating him and get the walk automatically, if you do not have 80 LoM with Kentin, you will not get the illustration)
B. (I leaned over and put my face close to his.) /
C. I almost thought it was over… /

After a bit more dialogue, the episode ends. And you’re done!
