The Photo Studio Mystery Event will begin on Mar. 16th after maintenance!


GFL's White Day Event "The Photo Studio Mystery" will rerun in 2021! It's largely the same as before but now features an infinity farming stage on top of the usual six story stages.

3/15/2021 update: Updated to reflect minor changes brought on by the rerun. 

Check out the official PV below!

In addition to a much longer unique story (including three additional dialogue-only stages), this White Day Event also introduces the T-Doll Rescue Welfare system!

While farming enemies and S-ranking stages can drop limited T-Dolls as usual, each battle or S-rank clear in the event will award either a Nova Medal or Platinum Medal.

2021 Rerun Update: To keep with the trend of newer events on older servers, and the most recent Collab Event, the 2021 Rerun features a Farming, or Infinite Stage, providing an all-in-one location to farm Dolls, Medals, and Daily Currency.

Item Description
Nova Medal

Nova Medal

As is the case with previous seasonal events, the Sangvis Ferri enemies changed into seasonal outfits, this time with Vespids and Brutes dressing up: 

Event Stages & Clear Guides

This event can be easily completed by all Commanders within its duration. The stages start off very easy, scaling up to eventually offer a decent challenge by the final map. A new Commander who takes advantage of the New Player Career Quest Rewards will have no trouble clearing the entire event before it ends.

The map clear guides can be seen below! 

Note: Stage 1 is story only and omitted.

Farming Guides

The one major shake-up brought on by this Rerun is the introduction of the Farming or Infinite Map. For a breakdown of this map, including requirements, please see the new map guide! As always, Ceia has put out an All in One farming video detailing this map, which you can also find in the article below!

The new farming map has more stringent requirements to farm than many of the older maps, but it does offer a much greater efficiency over any of said older maps.

Should you wish to go back to any of the older maps to farm, see the 2020 Companion Guide.

Daily Tangerine Coin Farm

For those looking to farm their daily 60 Tangerine Coins, simply follow the below clear guide for Stage 2: The Empty House. This map can be cleared via planning mode, making farming a breeze.

While you can do that, you can also farm the Farming map, for Cores, Medals and your Daily Coins at the same time!
