Objects of Interest[]

This Somnium is made up of two versions. One version is a ShovelForge rendition of Ikume Shrine, with blocks and glitches all abound. The other version is a realistic rendition of Ikume Shrine, with the appropriate models found throughout. As such, the Objects of Interest will be divided in two, as your actions vary depending on which rendition you're on.

Ikume Shrine[]

Object Description
Availability Action Cost TIMIE Effect
Iris Iris Sagan, laying unconscious on the stone slab. Her condition gets critical by the minute.
Mental Lock #1 Wake Her Up 30s
Detail:
Aiba attempts to wake Iris up, to no avail. She suggests to Date that they try something else instead.
Talk to Her 30s
Detail:
Aiba attempts to ask Iris about the fruit of immortality, and where to find it. She doesn't respond, and Aiba states that they are draining her stamina and wasting their time.
Investigate 10s
Detail:
Date asks why they can't wake Iris up, and Aiba responds by saying that if they try to do so forcefully, they may end up mentally and physically exhausting her, assuming she can even wake up. Date takes note of Iris's Core above her, realizing it's the same one as last time. Despite this, Aiba states it's best not to strain her even in her Somnium, so they decide to leave her be.
Egg-shaped Monument A yellow egg-shaped monument, placed within the doors to the Shrine. Date notes that it looks like a sugar cube to him.
Mental Lock #1 Dig 30s
Detail:
Aiba states that she can't dig into it without a pickaxe. Date suggests chopping it with her hands, but she declares it's impossible.
Investigate 10s
Detail:
Aiba describes the monument as egg-shaped, with a pattern of a snake carved in it and with opals placed in the center. She wonders what meaning this could have to Iris, while Date thinks it looks like cheese cubes.
Place on Pedestal 30s
Detail:
Aiba grabs the monument and takes it to the pedestal near the iris ungicularis. She notes that placing the monument there would cut off the beam of light passing through it. Date states it reminds him of a movie, while Aiba declares it should remind him of Iris's last Somnium. With the monument in place, a beam extends as it passes to Pedestal A, then Pedestal B, and then over the chozuya. While Date is surprised, Aiba realizes that the light is almost making a pentagram, and notes that they must interact with the chozuya in order to finish it.
This action causes a beam of light to appear!
Chozuya A chozuya, where people go to cleanse themselves before entering the shrine. The pool of water contains a dragon-shaped faucet, and a roof covers it from the weather.
Mental Lock #1 only Investigate 10s
Detail:

As Aiba investigates the chozuya, THIS MAN appears from the water, floating upwards, and then descends back down into the pool.


If THIS MAN was not discovered in MaiN: 1:

Detail:
Aiba is surprised at finding THIS MAN, and when Date asks, she tells him about the urban legend of THIS MAN, who appears in the dreams of many unrelated people. She offers to go into more detail later, but Date rejects her offer.

If THIS MAN was discovered in MaiN: 1:

Detail:
Aiba considers herself lucky at finding THIS MAN again, enthusiastically showing Date. He wonders if that's the reaction she should have about seeing him here.

As Aiba investigates the chozuya, GRAY appears from the water, floating upwards, and then descends back down into the pool.

Stick your hand in it 30s With Beam of Light only:
Detail:
Aiba sticks her hand inside the chozuya, and as she searches, a monument pops out of it, the roof falling off. She notes that the monument could be placed by the light, completing the pentagram, and Date orders her to do so. But before they have a chance, a UFO and an Elite appear, which Aiba notes that these might represent Iris's insecurities, as they wreak havoc around the shrine, destroying the chozuya and the irises. They realize that a yellow pedestal remains in front of the arch, and that they must complete the pentagram in order to dispel them. They proceed, worrying about attempting trial and error.
This action unlocks Mental Lock #1!
Iris Ungicularis A circle of iris ungicularis, known as the winter iris, as they surround a stone monument. A pedestal rests by the flowers and the monument, where a beam of light is striking it. Aiba recognizes them as the flowers she saw in the last Psync.
Mental Lock #1 Dig 30s
Detail:
As Aiba complains at not having the right tools to dig up the flowers, Date tells her that she should just be able to pluck them with her hands. She proceeds to strike with her hands, and suddenly the "iris ungicularis" item is let loose, and Date reconfirms that the tool wasn't the problem. Aiba is relieved that she does not need to dig anymore, but Date tells her to be ready regardless.
Investigate 10s Without Beam of Light:
Detail:
Aiba notes that a beam of light is passing right on top of this pedestal, and Date states that, if a monument was on the pedestal, the Iris Beam would hit it. Realizing there's nothing more they can do, Date tells Aiba to bring the monument to the Iris Beam. She asks Date to stop calling it the Iris Beam, and when he asks what else to refer to this "light beam," she tells him to just call it that.
With Beam of Light:
Detail:
Aiba states that there is nothing they can do there now, while Date declares they should examine the chozuya.
Arch An arch that acts as the entrance to the Shrine, a rainbow wall shining in its center. Date states that the arch actually called a "torii."
Mental Locks #1 & #2 Investigate 10s
Detail:
Aiba states that they shouldn't pass through this gate, while Date states that they shouldn't leave Iris behind.
Pedestal A A yellow pedestal on the left side of the shrine, with a monument placed on top of it. Date states that it looks like an almond tofu on top of a rice cake.
Mental Lock #1 only Investigate 10s Without Beam of Light:
Detail:
Aiba notes that it's the same kind of monument they saw in the previous Psync. Date asks if she can move it, but as she tries to do so, Aiba says that she can't. They realize they most likely need it there for something.
With Beam of Light:
Detail:
Aiba and Date realize that the monument interacts with the beam of light, meaning there is no need to move it.

Mental Lock #1 only Investigate 10s Without Beam of Light:

Detail:

Pedestal C A lantern, resting on the left side of the shrine. Aiba calls it a pedestal, but Date is not sure he can agree with that.
Mental Lock #1 only Investigate 10s
Detail:
Aiba notes that this fixture is typically used as a lantern within shrines, but Date wonders what they can use it for instead. Aiba notes that the yellow pedestals have monuments on them, but there are no monuments to place on this lantern, to which they conclude that this lantern is meaningless.
Shrine Door The shrine doors, which Aiba assumes leads to the hall of worship inside. They note how ornate the doors are, thinking that the contractor must've had a hell of a time making it.
Mental Locks #1 (with Beam of Light) and #2 Dig 30s
Detail:
As Aiba notes that the inside of the shrine looks suspicious, Date asks her to make a hole by "drilling the pickaxe in." In turn, Aiba uses her own body to drill into the door, her head spinning at the gate. It ultimately fails, and Aiba wonders why she listened to his stupid idea.
Open 30s
Detail:
Aiba attempts to open it, to no avail. They realize they must attempt some other way to open it.

Date claims that if a bug tester found this out, they would be pissed off, and then states that it's best to place the monument they have on hand and come back later. Aiba thanks him for his open-mindedness to the Somnium's specs.
Egg-shaped Monument (Blue) A blue egg-shaped monument, lying on the floor by itself.
Mental Lock #2 Investigate 10s
Detail:
Aiba notes that the monument is blue, but Date points out that there are plenty of blue pedestals around. She responds by saying that, to create a pentagram properly, they need to make the shape symmetrical, and so Date takes note of the hint.

If the monuments are on the wrong pedestals:
Detail:
The beam of light from Iris's core will form a misaligned pentagram, and the UFO and Elite will attack Aiba, knocking the yellow monument off. As Date wonders what went wrong, Aiba tells him that the placement of the monuments must match the golden ratio, otherwise it's not a true pentagram. She tells him to try again with symmetrical placements.

If the monuments are on the right pedestals:

Detail:
The beam of light from Iris's core will form a perfect pentagram. The magic given by the pentagram makes the UFO and the Elite to panic, as they shoot at the ground, causing a massive explosion.

Dig 66s
Detail:
With the order to dig, Aiba states that they are no longer in the ShovelForge world, meaning they cannot dig anywhere. But Date nonchalantly states that there's a pickaxe on the ground, and as Aiba looks, she finds a Lvl. 255 Pickaxe on the back of the chozuya. Aiba wonders why it's there, and why it looks different than before, and Date states that maybe Iris left it for them to use. With the newly acquired pickaxe, Aiba strikes the chozuya, exploding upon contact. With this, rain comes down, making the sprout in the ashes grow into a tree bearing the fruit of immortality. Aiba picks a fruit, and together, the two decide to head quickly towards Iris to save her.

As Date claims that "It's the thought that counts," Aiba rebuts again, stating he doesn't exercise much thought. After their banter, Aiba bows to the arch, and the arch bows back, falling to the floor before picking itself back up. A shocked Aiba exclaims that the arch is rather polite, while Date takes this as a sign that the shrine is understaffed, as even the inanimate objects have to work.
Investigate 10s
Detail:
Aiba asks what Date wants her to examine, and he responds with the arch's texture. She notes that the arch has not received maintenance in over a year, and that it appears worn out, to which Date exclaims he's worn out himself. Aiba asks if he's satisfied, and he says he is.
Bell A bell hanging off the side of the shrine, with a rope hanging from it down to the floor. Aiba and Date are shocked to learn it's a bell, with Date in particular noting that he thought it was a castella.
Mental Locks #3 & #4 Donate Money 66s
Detail:
Aiba states that they do not have any money to donate to the shrine. Date exclaims that she should throw a 5 yen coin from her heart, and while Aiba claims that his positivity won't help make it a reality, he insist that she does it. Sure enough, a 5 yen coin appears as she tosses it to the offering box, surprising her. Date asks for even more coins from her heart, and as Aiba sticks out her hand, a fountain of coins flows out into the offering box, leaving Date in awe. After a while, Aiba asks if they should be doing this, to which Date apologizes.
Pray 66s
Detail:
Aiba decides to pray to the shrine, as a formality, bowing down twice and then clapping her hands. Date asks her what she prayed for, and Aiba chastises him, reminding him that a wish will not come true if you tell it to someone else. Date makes the argument that it only applies to humans, but Aiba refuses to give in.

Hidden Item[]

  • The hidden item appears once you arrive at the Real Ikume Shrine, in Mental Lock #3 onwards. It is located inside the shrine, placed where the seed for the fruit of immortality was located.

Trivia[]

  • In the original release of AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam, PSYNCIN' IN THE MaiN: 2 and PSYNCIN' IN THE MaiN: 1 both contain appearances of THIS MAN through your actions in the Somnium. The dialogue for discovering THIS MAN in MaiN: 2 changes depending on whether you found him in MaiN: 1 or not. Finding him in both instances gives you the achievement "The Dream Wanderer."
    • The dialogue within MaiN: 2 about THIS MAN changes based on whether the player found THIS MAN in MaiN: 1 in any single timeline run in the story. Even if the player only found THIS MAN in MaiN: 1 when going down Branch BB (Resolution Route) and not when going down Branch BA (Iris Route), the dialogue will still change, and Aiba will react as if she's finding THIS MAN for the second time.
    • THIS MAN also appears in the Somnium PSYNCIN' IN THE CAPTaiN as an image on one of the bottles in the kitchen top. There's no player input that can have the characters notice THIS MAN, and this appearance of him doesn't contribute to getting the achievement.

      Video footage of "Gray" from the Game Pass release.

    • In the Game Pass version of AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES, released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Game Pass on PC, appearances of THIS MAN is removed from both Somnia. Instead, he is replaced with "Gray", a strange alien face. All lines referencing THIS MAN were removed, and the achievement obtained for Gray is renamed "The Dream Invader" instead.
  • The pickaxe that Aiba and Date find is the Lvl. 255 pickaxe that can also be found in PSYNCIN' IN THE MaiN: 1, but only when doing the set of choices that lead to Branch BB (Resolution Route), which is not where PSYNCIN' IN THE MaiN: 2 is located.
  • If you examine either of the guardian dog statues, and then examine either statue again, Aiba will say, "This reminds me of Nagito. You should refer to him as Ultimate Lucky Student." This is a reference to Nagito Komaeda from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, who is one of the characters to bear the title "Ultimate Lucky Student" in the series. The Japanese word for the guardian dog statue is "komainu," which sounds similar to Nagito's last name, "Komaeda."[1]
AI: The Somnium Files and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair spoilers here!
  • Fans have noted that the character of Nagito bears notable connections to Iris herself, potentially another reason for the reference in this Somnium. Nagito has an unhealthy obsession with "hope," which is one of the definitions to the "winter iris" in the language of flowers. Additionally, Nagito has two illnesses, lymphoma cancer and frontotemporal dementia, with similar effects to Iris's brain tumor, such as social impairment and a short life expectancy.[1]
  • Interacting with the arch within the Real Ikume Shrine will have the pair comment on how the shrine appears to be understaffed and not well-maintained. If the state of the arch is similar to how it appears in the real world in present day, it could be an accurate assessment of Ikume Shrine, especially considering the shrine's priest is never seen, only his voice is heard.
