Solving a “hard” kaodoku

(For a much easier example, click here)

OK, so you know how to solve easy kaodokus. But how do you even get started on the hard ones? Well, here is an example that really shows off the particular complexities that can present themselves in kaodokus.

Plenty of opportunities for interaction between all those different regions! And of course, not a single full symbol is given.

Don’t worry if you think you could never have come up with these, that’s why it’s called a hard puzzle!
