The picture below is what the screen should look like if you have chosen to escape. The character you control is always on the left, and your opponent is on the right. In the example, I am using Kagome to fight Yura.
At the very top of the screen is your physical strength number (in other words, your hit points), and the yellow bar shows the percentage of the hit points you have. In the example, both bars are completely yellow because neither Kagome or Yura has lost any HP yet.
The options in the middle of the screen are Confirm and Items. Confirm will take you to the next step. Items will allow you to select an item to use. But before selecting Confirm, take a look at the bottom of the screen.
At the bottom of the screen are the names of your character and opponent. The box with your character's name will also show your speed (example: Kagome's speed is 5). The box with your opponent's name will show their speed (example, Yura's speed is 8).
Compare the speed of your character to the speed of your opponent. This will tell you if you need to use an item or not. In the example, Kagome's speed is 5, and Yura's speed is 8. With these stats, it is unlikely for Kagome to successfully escape from Yura because Yura's speed is higher than Kagome's speed. This means I need to use an item to increase Kagome's speed.
Select option 1 'Confirm' to go to the roulette without using an item.
Select option 2 'Items' to select an item to use.
In the items menu, the text at the top left corner is your character's name. The text at the bottom is the name of the selected item, and the item's description.
You can carry a maximum of 20 items. The items that appear faded/dark are items that you cannot use at the moment to attack. There are items which allow you to escape instantly no matter what the speed of you or your opponent is.
Some opponents can also use items. When you are escaping, the opponent might use an item to raise their speed. You will then automatically be taken to the roulette screen.
See the Roulette section for more information and tips on getting the result you want.
To successfully escape your opponent, you'll need to spin a number that is higher than your opponent's speed.
After you spin your number, the battle will end (unless you failed to escape). If you failed to escape, your oppenent will now either attack or escape, usually they attack and you will need to either defend or avoid their attack.
