A narrative checkpoint is a story segment in Hangout Events. Since each ending can be obtained based on your choices and multiple endings share similar narrative paths, you can choose to start from a particular checkpoint to save time redoing the Hangout from the beginning. However, you can only access narrative checkpoints that you have already unlocked.

To access narrative checkpoints, enter the quest menu and click Story Quests on the bottom left of the screen and switch to the Hangout Events tab. Click on Shikanoin Heizou and select Act I: Trap 'Em by Storm. Choose a narrative checkpoint, then click Continue Playing on the bottom right of the screen.
