Arcana Heart 3 Love MAX!!! is the follow up to Arcana Heart 3. It's a rebalance of the original with some new modes and some system changes, such as the new Arcana Eclipse. The trophy list, previously all character based, is now Arcana based, so it will be a little different this time. You can look at the following sites for a rundown of the system mechanics:

Warning for people wanting to boost trophies! This game has stacking trophy lists - JP PS3, JP Vita, NA PS3, and NA Vita are all separate. On top of that, this game has no cross-region netplay. That means that anyone with a JP copy CANNOT play online with someone with an NA copy. Vita copies also cannot play with PS3 copies! As of now it's unknown whether the EU version will have its own servers as well.
All inputs in this guide will be done using the Blazblue system. From a neutral position, you have
7 8 9
4 5 6
1 2 3
where 4 is back, 6 is forward, and 8 is up. Therefore, 236 will be a fireball motion from down, down-forward, forward.
All steps are concurrent, as there's no real order to anything.
Practice or leave it on, it's your call. After 15 minutes, you'll have:
No Train No Gain
While there's no trophy specifically for clearing it with all characters, you will need to do so for the CG trophy. Make sure you get the bad end once, and clear it once on the highest difficulty. There's also an Arcana trophy that is much easier against the boss of Story mode (See Tag! You're It! ). Once you've done all this, you'll have:
Storybook Ending X-TREME
I...I Just Couldn't Look Away...
AFTER Story Mode
When you get to the hot springs scene, be sure to wipe away a ton of steam. After this, you'll get:
Chillin' in the Hot Spring!
Hey, No Peeking!
Time Attack Mode
Aim to clear it under 10 minutes, and you get:
It's Okay to Bust that Ghost, Right?!
Faster! Faster! Go Go GO!
Over Before It Began...?
Survival Score Attack Mode
You're allowed to continue infinitely, but if you have trouble with the final two fights, see the trophy guide for details. Clearing it gets you:
God is Dead...
Pick a character you really like, and aim to get all their gold medals. After this, you get:
I am Become Death...
When you're ready for it, start fighting online. Win 100 ranked matches, play at least 1 player match, and fight against all characters, and you'll have:
If That's What You Think, Then Good For You!
Good Morning, Angels
Plays Well With Others
Throw Down the Gauntlet.
Rank and File
Fear no Foe!
Just Getting Started, Buddy!
You'll have likely gotten a few of the Arcana-specific trophies in the above steps. All these trophies can be accomplished in any mode except training mode. If you're in 2P VS mode, they can be unlocked with the second player fulfilling the requirements.
Love Conquers ALL!
Spear of Destiny
Blessing of the Bodhi Tree
Tag! You're It!
Run Silent, Run Deep
You've Got the POWER!
The Snow Queen
...Meet Irresistible Force
7 Deadly Sins
The Three (Five?) Stooges
...Sincerest Form of Flattery
When the Pupil is Ready, the Master will Appear
Voice of Hope and Reason
Synchro Rate: 100%
Ah, the Smell of Napalm!
Use VS mode to grind out unique pre-fight scenes, link animations and some more CG. Use Time Attack/Survival mode to grind LP for your chosen character and to unlock memories for that trophy. Be sure to watch all memories to complete the CG gallery. There are a couple miscellaneous trophies for winning rounds with special moves, which you should have gotten early on, but get them in VS mode if you need. This is the final step, and the longest. Here you will get:
I Was Just Looking!
I Remember EVERYTHING!
Mycana, not Ourcana
Of Critical Importance
With Our Powers Combined!
Un-Natural Female Enhancement
You Only Have Eyes For Me!
You're the Only One for Me
Threads of Fate Bind Us Together
