There are two main stages:
- Getting Hina to visit
- Serve a Rice dish
|Pic 1 : Hina's Arrival|
|Pic 2 : Steps of Getting Hina|
The sequence is like this :
Artist -> Lingerie Seller -> Adventurer -> Singer -> Celebrity -> TV Personality -> Exec. Assistant -> Hina
Artist gives Point Card.
Lingerie Seller gives Hostel Promotion.
Adventurer gives Theme Song.
Singer gives Add Spring Water.
Celebrity gives Endorsement.
TV Personality gives Free Vouchers.
Exec. Assistant does give you a plan but it does not help getting Hina.
Therefore, to quickly get Hina, the best way is to run those plans as soon as you can. Once you run the plan, the next housewife starts visiting. If the plan is not done by the time that particular housewife reaches 100 points, the next housewife will start coming anyway.
There isn't a plan from Exec. Assistant you can run to get Hina though. You will just have to wait until Exec. Assistant reaches 100 points. Although, I've read if you have Seafood Soup on the Menu, it will also trigger Hina's visit. ( I didn't have Seafood Soup on my Menu when Hina came. But you can give it a go if you are curious. )
Now, Stage 2 : Let's Serve Rice
Most people have trouble here. I was suggested serving Crab Fried Rice last time but it took ages so I decided to server all kinds of Rice dishes and finally got her. This time, I decided to try just plain Rice ( 4 Stars, Brain up 73, Aroma 90, Appearance 22, the rest 100 ). Hina came in, tried the Rice and gave me the Soba straight away.
I've also noticed, if she followed her friends in, even if she tried the Rice, she wouldn't say a word. That is why sometimes we need to wait a bit.
I was just curious so I reloaded the game and tried serving Crab Fried Rice. ( 5 Stars ) Five months passed and she had tried the dish many times but she just kept quiet. So I am wondering, since Crab Fried Rice worked for some people, maybe it's a little random each playthough?
I hope this helps people getting the Soba. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and we will try and work it out together.
