Stage 1 – Play through the story


Punch Line has no missables as it has an episode select. Though you may as well grab them them your first run through! Make sure to read: Don’t Get More Excited!, Yutan, You Got Too Excited!, and Only That Which Is Real Will Remain before playing as they’re not in the guide due to them being done anywhere. So following the guide below:
Note: Hold ‘X’ to skip cutscenes. Useful for when you fail or need to skip seen scenes.


Trophies


 Your rank went up! Your new rank is “Punchline Master!”
Get all trophies.


 Wow, Yutan! That’s Perfect!
Clear the trick chain section of Episode 12 without picking any wrong tricks.

Not a difficult trophy since there’s a guide above. What you need to do is do the Trick Chain without choosing anything that won’t progress the story. So you can’t pick anything wrong. Following the guide above it’ll go like this:

Room 201: Meika Daihatsu’s Room
Chain Trick Start
“Tell Mikatan to take down Talismans” [Fax Fridge]
“Carry to Work Table” [Key]
Room 101: Mikatan Narugino’s Room
“Send Message to Buy More Things” [Cellphone]
Room 202: Rabura Chichibu’s Room
“Hide” [Fish Snacks]
**Wow, Yutan! That’s Perfect!** Unlocks


 Noice Yutan! Keep ’em On edge!
Clear the trick section of Episode 12 with your Boom! gauge almost near the red zone (5 blocks or less)

Probably the hardest trophy in the game. The Boom Gauge fills really fast and it’s hard judging the boundary before you accidentally look away. You’ll either reload the Chapter 12 start save, or you’ll reload this chapter. What the description is asking of you is to finish the trick while you’re Boom Gauge is within a 5 block range below the top section (red blocks) meaning you should be in the yellow gauge. Following the guide above you’ll do the following:

Trick Start
“Put on the floor” [trash can]
**Noice Yutan! Keep ’em On edge!** Unlocks


 Way To Play It Cool, Yutan
Clear the trick section of Episode 7 without letting your Boom! gauge go up once.

This sounds trickier than it really is. The entirety of the Trick Section can be completed on the default screen you start on. Meaning there won’t be any Pantsu to be seen. Following the above guide it’ll be as follows:

Trick Start
Note: Make sure you do not glance at Ito’s Pantsu even once, if you do let it explode so you restart. Pretty much don’t switch angles, use all the stuff on the default screen.
“Knock Over” [Boxes]
“Ring” [Phone]
“Knock Off” [Figurine]
**Way To Play It Cool, Yutan** Unlocks.


 “The Happiest, Most Peaceful Future Has A Lot of Cleavage In It”
Watch the short bonus anime.

After completing the main story, you’ll unlock a bonus anime in the Special section of the Main Menu. Watch it to unlock this.


 You Got All the Panties!
Complete the Panties Gallery.

Refer to “You Saw the Panties!” for more information.


 You’re Cutting It Close, Yutan
Clear the trick chain section of Episode 11 with very little time (3 seconds or less) on the clock.  

Timed chain trick sections give you way more than enough allotted time. So you’ll need to do all the tricks except for one, hold the cursor over the last trick and click it when under 3s. following the above guide looks like:

Room 201: Meika Daihatsu’s Room
Chain Trick Start
Note: You’ll need to finish this with less than 3 seconds for a trophy. So do the last step with 1 or 2 seconds left.
“Put on Floor” [Banana Peel]
“Mix Chemicals” [Test Tubes]
“Open” [Curtains]
Room 202: Rabura Chichibu’s Room
“Use UGC To Share Plan” [Fax Machine]


 Yutan, That’s Going Too Far
Clear the trick section of Episode 10 with 0 tricks left.

The only problem with this trophy is you’ll need to what and how much things scare you don’t want to complete it too early. If you’re following the guide above you’ll be using the following 7:
“Power On” [TV]
“Knock Off” [Figurine]
“Turn On” [Faucet]
“Light” [Stove]
“Turn On” [Microwave]
“Open” [Fridge]
“Turn On” [Washing Machine]


 Yutan, You Got Too Excited!
Get the Boom! gauge into the red zone 10 times in a row.

The red zone is the final color at the top of the gauge before you exterminate humanity. 10 times in a row isn’t hard nor time consuming. Look at some Pantsu until in the red zone then look away. Right after it leaves the red zone, take a really quick peek an look away again. As long as you teeter it back and forth you’ll get this real fast.


 You Saw the Panties!
See all panties in the Panties Gallery.

The Gallery will unlock upon story completion under the Special Menu. You’ll need to unlock all the Pantsu CG’s to unlock this trophy though. It is incredibly easy to do. In every chapter you’ll need to view each possible girls Pantsu once. Doesn’t matter when or if they show up multiple times, you only need to view them once. Usually if not all, you view your first Pantsu during the Trick Chain and the remaining girls in the Room Selection.
