Endings in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice refers to the conclusions to the game that depend on player actions / choices throughout the game. When the game finishes, a New Game Plus cycle is started, and players can experience the game again. This Sekiro Endings Guide gives players the best path to achieve all endings in the game.

Sekiro Endings Guide

  1. Shura Ending - "Bad Ending", end the playthrough early
  2. Immortal Severance Ending - "Average Ending", complete one playthrough
  3. Purification Ending - "Good Ending", complete a more complex playthrough
  4. Return Ending - "True" and Final Ending, complete many steps this playthrough

 

Can you do all Endings in One Playthrough?

It is possible to progress all endings simultaneously, except the Shura ending. This will allow for all content specific to those Endings to be available in a single playthrough. At the very end, the player will have the option to choose which of the three non-Shura endings to proceed with, and will be awarded with the respective trophy or achievement associated with it. To obtain the associated trophies and achievements for other endings, players must either beat the game multiple times (either NG or NG+) or make a backup of their save before the choice must be made, and load it after each ending is achieved.

Please note that reloading for the endings does not give you the platinum / 100% completion in one playthrough, because there are other achievements/trophies that require multiple playthroughs, such as All Bosses (which requires one Shura and one non-Shura playthrough). Thus, the minimum number of playthroughs required for all trophies/achievements is 4 (2 if the player uses save-scumming to view multiple endings in one playthrough, as not all prosthetic upgrades can be completed in one playthrough).

Sekiro Endings Guide: How to get all Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Endings

There are a total of four endings that can be unlocked in Sekiro, and this guide will teach you how to unlock all of them in order to obtain all trophies and achievements. Players may be looking for the "best ending" and "true ending" of Sekiro, and they are explained on this page.

 

Endings Explained: Step-by-Step Guide
Shura

 

Shura Ending (Follow the Iron Code Ending)

"Shura" is considered the "bad" ending of the game, as it will cut your playthrough short and produce a bad outcome for the characters. It's still necessary for 100% completion, and it's the easiest ending to unlock.

In this ending, Sekiro decides to follow the Iron Code and obey Owl's wishes to obtain the power of the Divine Heir.  First Emma, then Ashina Isshin will oppose Sekiro but both will be defeated.  Owl will return and lay an unidentified object on the ground (datamining suggests it is the head of Ashina Genichiro) then congratulate Sekiro on defeating Ashina Isshin.  Owl will announce his triumph before being stabbed in the back by Sekiro.  Kuro will see Sekiro surrounded by the bodies of Owl, Emma, and Ashina Isshin and realize Sekiro has become a Shura.  The Ashina province is soon engulfed by flames and bloodshed.

This ending locks the player out of all other endings on their current playthrough and ends the events of the game early, resulting in many missed items (most notably, the highest tier of upgrade materials) and leading into an early NG+ - that said, the player also unlocks the combat skill One Mind, which is exclusive to this ending, and so may be worth choosing on a subsequent playthrough. This is in contrast to the Dragon Flash combat skill, which is awarded for the remaining three endings.  Furthermore, this ending has a unique boss fight that is required for the All Bosses trophy.

  1. Progress the story and collect the Lotus of the Palace and the Shelter Stone key items.
  2. At the top of Ashina Castle, The Owl will give you the choice to follow the Iron Code or to continue to serve Kuro, the Divine Heir.
  3. Choose to follow the Iron Code and then fight the next two boss fights.

Immortal Severance Ending (Serve Kuro Ending)

Immortal Severance is the most common ending for a full playthrough, and most players will unlock this naturally as it does not require extra steps. This is considered a mildly bad ending as it brings a tragedy.

In this ending, Sekiro helps Kuro carry out the Immortal Severance to end the Dragon's Heritage.  This requires giving Kuro the Divine Dragon's Tears then using the Mortal Blade to kill Kuro.  Sekiro, in turn, will take the Sculptor's place at the Dilapidated Temple and pass the time carving Buddhas.   It may be surmised that the Dragon's Heritage may now pass to another heir as Immortal Severance was carried out once before by Takero which led to Kuro being chosen as the next Divine Heir.

This is the default ending available if the player stays loyal to Kuro and the game is progressed normally.

  1. Progress the story and collect the Lotus of the Palace and the Shelter Stone key items.
  2. At the top of Ashina Castle, The Owl will give you the choice to follow the Iron Code or to continue to serve Kuro, the Divine Heir.
  3. Choose to continue to serve Kuro and then proceed through the rest of the game.
  4. Beat the final boss, talk to Kuro, and choose to give Kuro ONLY the Divine Dragon's Tears

Purification Ending (Alternate Serve Kuro Ending)

Purification is a more complex ending that will require the player to do some extra steps, and thus it is a rare ending that most players will unlock on NG+. It is considered a good ending as it provides a good outcome for the characters.

This ending is similar to the Immortal Severance ending but, instead of killing Kuro to put an end to the Dragon's Heritage, Sekiro will use the Divine Dragon's Tears and Aromatic Flower to purify Kuro of the Dragon's Heritage.  To complete the purification Sekiro will use the Mortal Blade to sacrifice himself to remove the Immortal Oath, the last link holding the Dragon's Heritage to Kuro.  Later, Kuro and Emma will visit Sekiro's grave.  It is surmised that, like with the Immortal Severance ending, this may not be a permanent solution as the Divine Dragon may choose another to be its heir.

Progressing this ending allows the player to obtain two Prayer Beads and a Memory, which are otherwise missable; as such, it is advisable to complete the steps for this ending even if the player does not intend to select it as their final choice.  For this ending, stay loyal to Kuro when asked, and complete the following steps before defeating the Divine Dragon. Note: Step 2 can be completed after defeating The Owl, but if not done up to this point, it is highly recommended to do it immediately after defeating him. Simply eavesdrop on Kuro as many times as you can, rest, talk to Emma/Kuro, resting each time, until Emma moves upstairs. The key here is talking to Kuro until the topic becomes the Mortal Blade.

  1. Defeat Genichiro at the top of Ashina Castle, get the Mortal Blade from The Divine Child, and acquire the Lotus of the Palace key item from defeating the Guardian Ape. Alternatively, if you get the Mortal Blade after both the Lotus of the Palace and Shelter Stone, you may still do steps 2 and 3 after killing The Owl, and will immediately be able to do steps 6 and beyond.
  2. Exhaust all dialogues with Kuro and Emma, including a conversation with Kuro about the Mortal Blade. Eavesdrop on Kuro while he's standing near the incense burner. Multiple rests may be required for Kuro to appear here instead of the library. The specific location for eavesdropping requires the player to stand just around the corner behind Kuro and the large statue he stands near. Go around behind the statue and then hug the wall on the left side of it. Rest and repeat until you eavesdrop Kuro alluding to a secret he's keeping from Sekiro which includes the phrase "Do... what must be done."  If you are not getting this eavesdrop conversation you might not have exhausted all dialogues yet with Kuro and/or Emma.
  3. After resting, Emma will move to the top of the stairs. Speak with her and agree to keep Kuro alive.
  4. Progress the story and collect the Shelter Stone key item. At this point you will face new Interior Ministry Ninjas at Ashina Castle.
  5. At the top of Ashina Castle, The Owl will give you the choice to follow the Iron Code or to continue to serve Kuro, the Divine Heir. Choose to continue to serve Kuro and defeat The Owl.
  6. Talk to Emma at the top of the stairs again, she will now give you Tomoe's Note.
  7. Travel to the Old Grave Idol and go to the left, you will find Emma standing infront of two tombstones. Talk to Emma and then travel to Dilapidated Temple.
  8. Eavesdrop on Emma and Sculptor from behind the temple. Talk to Emma and then choose "Ask about what you overheard", and then, "What are you hiding?" to receive Father's Bell Charm. Use it at the Buddha statue. If you haven't completed Hirata Estate  area, you will need to do it by killing Lady Butterfly before you can use Father's Charm.
  9. Go to the Lady Butterfly boss room and defeat Owl (Father) to obtain Aromatic Flower; the optional Memory is also awarded for this fight.  There are also two mini bosses in the area before this that award the player with Prayer Beads; one is optional while the other one is mandatory in order to continue.
  10. Beat the final boss, talk to Kuro, and choose to give him the Aromatic Flower ("Everblossom") and then the Divine Dragon's Tears.

Incidentally, once the Father's Bell Charm is acquired and the alternate Hirata Estate unlocked, the player is free to progress the game all the way up to just before speaking to Kuro after the final boss is defeated before completing the remaining steps, if desired.

Return Ending (Dragon's Homecoming Ending)

Return or Dragon's Homecoming is the "final" and "true" ending of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is a difficult ending as it requires players to complete time-sensitive steps along their playthrough, so it will likely be unlocked on NG+ and beyond. It is considered the best possible ending for the game.

In this ending, the Divine Child of Rejuvenation will help Sekiro and Kuro return the Divine Dragon to its place of origin (somewhere west of Japan).  To do so, Sekiro will feed the Divine Child both the Dried Serpent Viscera and the Fresh Serpent Viscera which will allow the Divine Child to shed Frozen Tears.  Giving the Divine Dragon's Tears and Frozen Tears to Kuro will allow the Divine Child to perform the Cradling Ritual and absorb (?) Kuro within herself.  Sekiro and the Divine Child then set out to travel west to return the Dragon from whence it came and finally end the Dragon's Heritage from returning to Japan.

This ending is arguably the most complicated to unlock.  For this ending, stay Loyal to Kuro when asked, and complete the following steps before defeating the Divine Dragon. 

  1. You may start by acquiring the Holy Chapter: Infested early.  This item is required later on for the ending but can be acquired sooner if the player clears Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo early.
    • Before defeating Genichiro Ashina (specifically, before learning where the Mortal Blade is from Isshin after defeating Genichiro): 
      • Talk to the old woman praying near the Ashina Castle Idol. If you have not spoken to the old woman near the Ashina Castle Idol, the next step will not work!
      • Travel to the Main Hall Idol in Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo. There will be a monk praying to the Buddha. Speak to him to get Holy Chapter: Infested.
    • If you have already defeated Genichiro Ashina and spoken to Kuro afterwards, and the monk is no longer there:
  2. Travel to Inner Sanctum Idol and talk to Divine Child of Rejuvenation. Talk to her to receive Rice (you can give her the Holy Chapter: Infested now as well).
  3. Get rid of the rice by using it on yourself (or giving it to the Old Hag). Reset the area completely--leave Senpou Temple and return; resting will not suffice. If you have more than one rice in your inventory from previous playthroughs, you need to get rid of all of them.
  4. Repeat this step, asking for more Rice and using it until you trigger the Divine Child to fall asleep. Ask her for Rice one last time, use the Rice, and reset the area.
  5. The Divine Child will now not be feeling very well. Exhaust her dialogue and give her a Persimmon (you can buy this from the vendor in Shugendo; he also gives you one for free if you visit him after speaking with the Divine Child for the first time). Give her a Persimmon and then ask for more Rice. She will give you the item Rice for Kuro and ask that you give it to him.
  6. You can give Rice for Kuro immediately or later, but do it before defeating the Divine Dragon. Once you give Kuro the Rice for Kuro, rest at the idol and speak to him again. He will give you two Sweet Rice Balls. You can use one of them (not mandatory) for a little extra dialogue with Kuro and later with the Child.
  7. Travel back to the Divine Child and talk to her.
  8. The Holy Chapter: Infested is required at this point, and must be obtained if you did not manage to acquire it earlier (see above).  Once you have given it to her, rest so that she moves to the Illusory Hall (where the Folding Screen Monkeys boss was); an entry portal is in the water directly across from the Divine Child's Inner Sanctum.
  9. At the Illusory Hall talk to the Divine Child (located near the large tree in the center) who tells you to seek out a High Senpou priest.
  10. Travel to Main Hall Idol at Senpou Temple and retrieve the Holy Chapter: Dragon's Return from the cave just outside the Hall's side entrance. The item will be on the blue monk's corpse at the end of the cave.  This item cannot be acquired from the corpse until this point is reached in the quest line. You will then need to rest.
  11. Talk to the Divine Child who has moved back to the Inner Sanctum, give her Holy Chapter: Dragon's Return and she will mention needing two serpentine fruits:
    • Fresh Serpent Viscera: From the Senpou Temple Idol to the right and below is a large hat Ministry enemy you will use the Puppeteer Ninjutsu technique on which will have him operate the kite crank. Go up the hill and through the temple with the undying monk and up into the large tree by the Old Hag. Use the kite as a grappling point to cross the valley to reach the Sunken Valley Cavern Idol. Plunge attack the Great Serpent and receive Fresh Serpent Viscera (note that you need to encounter the Great Serpent in the Sunken Valley for it to appear).
    • Dried Serpent Viscera: You will need to have encounter the Great Serpent at the bridge leading to the Gun Fort for the Great Serpent to be there. Travel to the Bodhisattva Valley Idol and head down toward where the Toxic Memorial Mob is located and enter into the cave behind him. At the end of the cave is another Great Serpent and you will need to use the Puppeteer Ninjutsu on the nearby monkey to distract the Serpent in order to grapple across safely and head into the house to find the Dried Serpent Viscera.
  12. Travel to the Divine Child and give her both Viscera items. Rest then eavesdrop.
  13. If you have not done it already, progress the story and collect the Lotus of the Palace and the Shelter Stone key items, then choose to Stay Loyal to Kuro, defeat Owl, and burn the Fountainhead Incense at the Altar after talking to Kuro.
  14. Travel back to the Inner Sanctum; the doors are now open. Talk to the Divine Child to receive Frozen Tears.
  15. Continue the game normally, beat the final boss, talk to Kuro, and give him the the Frozen Tears with the Divine Dragon's Tears.

If the prior steps are completed, the player can return to acquire the Frozen Tears at any point before speaking to Kuro at the end of the game after the final boss is defeated.

      For the purification ending you can eavesdrop on Kuro by hugging the wall behind if, helpful if he's already standing by the fragance

        damn, I was knocking off achievements for the 100%, and expected Shura run to be quick. Emma even gave me a little trouble but Isshin is another level lol, I can defeat Sword Saint without a sweat but Isshin Ashina has some crazy moves.

          the difference between Immortal Severence, Homecoming Ending and Purification Ending is what Sekiro gave to Kuro? I plan to save schumming for the 3 ending, and then play NG for the Shura ending. Thank you.

            I somehow triggered the third invasion without getting the second memory for Hirata. Sucks. But there's always NG+.

              For the purification ending you can eavesdrop Kuro in the library if you open the window first and then return from outside.

                I unlocked the dragons return ending by accident while working on the purification ending (first play through). I don't think it's as time sensitive as the guide makes it out to be.

                Was working on fighting Owl (father) in Hirata Estate, getting rice from the divine child when suddenly she disappeared. Looked it up and found her in the hall of illusions and got the frozen tears and fine snow. So I believe I have everything for dragons return. Still haven't killed Owl for purification.

                Any benefits to choosing one ending over the other (more boss fights etc)?

                  I offered Kuro candy and took him in my van. I’ve got a little gaichin sugar for anybody else as well. Who wants a ride?

                    From my playthrough it seems like these things don’t need to be completed in order to get the several endings except for a few select ones.

                      For purification ending: i got the dialogue after getting the shelter stone. Exhaust all dialogues between kuro and emma then the eavesdrop prompt will appear. I haven't gotten the lotus yet

                        If Purification ending, why does it say give Everblossom THEN Divine Dragon's Tears. Dude is dead after he gives Kuro Everblossom.

                          In the purification ending, does Sekiro behead himself or just cut his carotid artery? I couldn't tell whether he was headless in the last shot or if his head was tilted in an angle where we couldn't see it

                            I'm going for the return ending and I gave the divine child the holy chapter: infested before doing the rice thing, did I mess up? can I fix it?

                              I like to think of Dragon's homecoming as the canon ending, mainly because it sets the game up for a sequel

                                Does anyone know the best way to progress through the endings. Like I just finished purification what would be the next ending I should do Shura, Severance, or Dragon's heritage.

                                  After defeating Isshin can you leave the arena and continue fighting bosses or are you required to help kuro?

                                    Kinda wish there was more people approved to edit this wiki because it could be a bit more detail about how to progress some stuff.
                                    I was having trouble on a third playthrough getting Kuro to talk about the Shelter Stone and it turns out that you need the "Rotting Prisoner's Note" describing the drop to Ashina Depths and the stone itself. After you get that note Kuro will be sitting down in front of the incense and that's when you trigger the dialogue to go after it. I just wanted to be on the safe side because i'd rather fight the Guardian Ape and have him thrash the crap out of the poison pool and lower the enemy count because f*ck having to empty that place to fight the second snake eyes. Hope this helps anyone out.

                                        In the voice over after, the narrator mentions that for 'for a long time after, it was said a demon lurked the land.' This implies that Sekiro does eventually die somehow. Though despite being a mortal, you can hear a bit of the Divine Dragon's leit motif as Sekiro picks up the Black Mortal Blade. Since the Divine Dragon is essentially a god, this means that in the Shura ending thru achieving Shura, Sekiro becomes a god of killing, massacres, and death. This mirrors the Childhood's Beginning ending of Bloodborne. The player is left behind in a state of confusion while the character becomes a god that has left their humanity behind.

                                          I got the dried serpent viscera by using mist raven... I went there not having the puppeteer ninjutsu, so I grappled towards the snake then the moment the kanji sign appeared used mist raven and reached for the entrance.

Is there anything else I can do ;-; (btw i dont have a save file before this apparently so thats out of the question ig)

                                              Beginning of the explanation of 'Return' ending: "For this ending, stay Loyal to Kuro when asked, and complete the following steps before defeating the Divine Dragon."

                                              Now at the end of the description it says: "15. Continue the game normally, beat the final boss, talk to Kuro, and give him the the Frozen Tears with the Divine Dragon's Tears." and "If the prior steps are completed, the player can return to acquire the Frozen Tears at any point before speaking to Kuro at the end of the game after the final boss is defeated."

                                              So killing the divine dragon wasn't normal progress of the game?

                                              I got the frozen tears but I killed the divine dragon

                                                For the Purification ending, sometimes Kuro can be a little slow to find out about the Shelter Stone on his own. If you're having trouble exhausting all his dialogue to get the right eavesdrop opportunity, grab the Shelter Stone early to force the conversation out and rest afterwards.

                                                  Dragon's Homecoming by far is the best and most true ending. Since the start Sekiro is devoted to serve Kuro even if that means break his Iron Code. And since that mother****er Owl is just a greedy bastard and betrayed Sekro it just add up to me preferring this ending. And I got blinded on my first try. What an amazing game!

                                                      As implied by a few other posts, you do not have to get rid of your rice after receiving it for the first time from the Divine Child in order to progress the return ending. You will have to get rid of both rice and fine snow in order to get her to give it to you for the first time in any given playthrough, however. After that, she'll give you another rice (and rice for Kuro) after giving her the parsimmon even if you still have the previous rice in your inventory. She'll also give you the fine snow if you still have the rice.

                                                      Likewise, you never have to consume any rice balls to progress the ending. Thus you can get three rice balls on any given playthrough—two the first type that Kuro gives you after you give him Rice for Kuro, and one of the second.

                                                        I se alot people thinks the ending is the most time consuming to obtaine all achivements. I tell you that the ending can all be collected easily in one playthrough by backing up save before beating the game. The hardest part to acquire all achivement is actually learning all skills, the grind is unreal even with kuro charm.

                                                          So, on my initial blind playthrough of the game, I managed to get the Dragon's Homecoming ending, but there are some inconsistencies with how I got it and the steps listed here. - First, I got all of the necessary rice without eating any, though I did give 2 away to the two grannies that give hints about the fruits of the serpent. I ended up receiving four of the rice items throughout the play, and ended the game with 2 in my inventory. - Second, I never ate any rice balls Kuro gave to me, instead prompting a dialogue of not eating them in front of him, before returning after some time (perhaps a boss fight or more) and receiving another rice ball with unique item text. Based on this, I can confirm without a doubt that neither rice nor rice balls need to be eaten at all to progress this ending. It's important to note that I found the Holy Chapter: Infested after the Corrupted Monk boss fight, down in the Senpou Temple pool of water, and that I got both of the serpent viscera well before I knew what they were needed for. In fact, I had them both before I fought Owl, and also before I had the option to give a Persimmon to the Divine Child. I also gave a Taro Persimmon, which I received from Kotarou's side quest, to the Divine Child of Rejuvenation at one point, which may have prompted one of the additional rice servings. This entire run is recorded on twitch.tv/ciarantheblade if there is any question on the exact order of events I followed. In contrast, I completely missed the secret eavesdropping on Kuro and the entirety of the Father's Bell area. That***** is obscure.

I have both the lotus of the fountain and the shelter stone. I don't know what to do. I already got the shura ending but backed up my save and want to stay loyal to Kuro. Thanks

                                                                For purification ending it says after defeating Owl you eavesdrop but on the third step it says defeat Owl. So do I do the steps before or after Owl :/

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

A selfish choice, bringing him on a path cursed by murders, but his own path. The other paths are not so independent. Disrupting immortality by killing Kuro is at first the choice of his master. He chose to kill himself in the purification ending, because he was the one to said the sentence "Do what you have to do" at Kuro, and felt guilty. In the return ending, he is still bound to Kuro. In Shura ending, Sekiro says ***** that, I didn't choose immortality, etc, so ***** the world. And I like this choice.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

I feel personally robbed of the ending I’ve been striving toward without spoiling the game by looking it up. Pretty disappointed!!! They really need to make it to where I can give Kuro the rice before fighting genichiro for the last time then and there.

From "Main Hall" Idol, go to the left and enter the cave, go inside the cave (Kill the mobs). Drop down and the turn to the right, crouch through the little "tunnel". Double jump up to the platform and then (before you grapple yourself up) it will be there in front of you. I had some troubles finding it so I decided to write it down, maybe it can be a little bit of a help for others.

Talk to Kuro and exhaust all dialogue; he now knows that you only need one more item. Rest, then eavesdrop. Talk to Emma, and say "I agree". Defeat Owl, then talk to her again. Go to the Old Grave Idol, go left, then talk to Emma. Go to the Dilapidated Temple and eavesdrop on Emma and the Sculptor. Talk to Emma about what you overheard, and then ask what she's hiding. You'll get the bell from her. Interact with the Buddha nearby. Defeat Lady Butterfly, if you haven't already. Otherwise, proceed and defeat Owl (Father). Progress as normal, defeat the Sword Saint, and then give Kuro the Everblossom. Done.

Note Emma doesn't appear at the Old Grave at this point, make your way to the Shelter Stone obtain it. Likely works the other way round too if you grab the stone first then the flower. Which this'll lead into the Owl fight, even then you won't find Emma at the grave till after you fight owl. ^-^

I've tried to talk to all the NPC's, read all the item descriptions, explore all the areas thoroughly YET I haven't done almost any of this***** and I've already reached the fountainhead palace. I have all the items listed so can I still listen to these conversations? I tried talking to Kuro and Emma but neither of them seem to have any new dialogues. Almost every other Npc is suffering from dragonrot and I am all out of dragon tears. Have I really locked myself out of these dialogues, a second fight with the Owl and all the other stuff you do with rice?

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Wouldn't it be possible to get all endings with a single playthrough when using a save backup? Play as far as the first owl fight. Make a backup. Do the Shura-ending, then reload your backup. Proceed further into the game and prepare everything for the homcoming-ending. Just after the final boss before talking to Kuro save the game and make another backup. Now you should be able to achieve the three other endings by choosing the different ingredients to give to Kuro. Please let me know if I'm wrong.

I had completed all other steps including getting the first Holy Chapter and both serpent hearts. Resting and travelling wouldn't fix it so I fixed my problem by killing a mini-boss (Sakura Bull of the Palace) but I assume any boss/mini boss would work to progress if anyone is stuck.

You can literally reach the sanctuary sculptor's idol and travel back to Kuro's room from there. There you can talk to him and Emma, do all the eavesdropping stuff, get the Tomoe note, go the the dilapidated temple, eavesdrop on Emma and the sculptor again, get the bell and go to Hirata estate to fight owl and the Ninja with the wolves.

Then you will be able to progress trought the purification ending until Emma will go to the grave then you will have to defeat owl in order to continue the ending.

I forgot to eavesdrop on Emma and The Sculptor before beating the Divine Dragon, so now I have to do a NG+ to get the Purification and Dragon's Homecoming endings. I was also planning on getting the Shura ending so, should I get the Shura ending first or the other 2 first?

                                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

I gave divine child the holy text:infested before I got all the rice she has to offer. I don't have any rice on me, but she won't give me any more. I tried leaving the area and coming back, but she just keeps saying it's not ready from the harvest.

                                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Dragons homecoming made feel like there is more and if there is then homecoming is the best ending and if there is not oh well it was a great game

If you don't kuro says something along the lines of "I understand you might not want to eat it now" and it has no impact on the Dragon's Homecoming ending.

But when i go to her she cries and says she cant give me rice. I tried resting, going back to the area, but nothing works. Any suggestions?
