Walkthrough and Guide for the Month of April in Persona 5

In April, the Protagonist finds himself moving to live with a family friend. While there, he gets to explore and meet new people. Despite his initial disinterest, he creates Social Links with new friends. When moving around Shibuya, you can explore and interact with different people.

Here is the list of Confidants available in April.

You will be able to explore the first Palace this month. For a full walkthrough of the Kamoshida Palace, click here.

We make several assumptions in writing this guide which are:

    1. You have a Persona in your party matching the arcana of confidants you interact with. Having a persona of the confidant’s arcana allows you to rank up the Social Link much faster.
    2. You have Yen to throw around.
    3. You’re cocky enough to take on the palace the day after you find the infiltration route.

Persona 5 - P5 April Walkthrough and Guide

April Walkthrough

4/9 (SAT) Daytime

  • The Protagonist moves into Café Leblanc under the care of Sojiro Sakura.

Evening

  • All you can do now is sleep.
4/10 (SUN) Daytime

  • Sojiro and the Protagonist visit Shujin High School. Protagonist enrolls as a second-year student.

Evening

  • A telephone call for Sojiro and the Protagonist flips Café Leblanc signage outside.
4/11 (MON) Daytime

  • The Protagonist’s first day of school. Glances at Ann Takamaki and meets Ryuji Sakamoto.
  • Kamoshida Palace appears for the first time. Meets Morgana and his Persona, Zorro
4/12 (TUE) Daytime

  • Class Question Answer: Logic (Knowledge +1).
  • Kamoshida Palace infiltration resumes.
  • Ryuji awakens his persona, Captain Kidd
4/13 (WED) Daytime

  • Volleyball team practice at school.
  • The Protagonist looks for witnesses to uncover Kamoshida’s abuses (2-D, 3-E, 1-B).
  • Protagonist and Ryuji talk to Mishima.
  • Ann talks with the Protagonist and Ryuji.
4/14 (THU) Daytime

  • Ann talks with Shiho Suzui in front of the vending machine.
  • Morgana appears in the real world as a cat.
  • The Protagonist talks to Ann for information
4/15 (FRI) Daytime

  • Shiho, sadly, did the unfortunate.
  • Kamoshida Palace infiltration resumes.
  • Ann joins the team and awakens her Persona, Carmen
4/16 (SAT) After School

  • Head over to Takemi Medical Clinic.
    • Remember this place well. If you max out the Death Confidant, the Protagonist will have access to a lot of useful items like an SP Adhesive with Invigorate 3. These are very helpful, especially in the long run.
4/17 (SUN) Daytime

  • Head to the Airsoft Shop. When you get inside, you’ll come across Munehisa Iwai. On a personal note, we don’t suggest buying anything yet since there are weapons and armors that can drop in the palace that is way better than the equipment he sells.

Evening

  • The Protagonist learns to craft lockpicks.
    • Always keep at least five of them on you. You’ll come across a lot of the treasure chests in palaces that require lockpicks. These sometimes contain SP regen items which will definitely save your life.
4/18 (MON) After School

  • Head to the library and borrow The Pirate Legend (Captain Kidd) book.
  • Part-Time Job system unlocked. Head over to Shibuya station and choose from one of the magazines.
    • For this case, we suggest either getting the Flower Shop or the Convenience Store jobs. The Convenience Store doesn’t raise any stats but it does give you information for one of your later requests. The Flower Shop on the other hand grants +2 Kindness and 3,200 yen each time you work. You get a bonus if your customer particularly likes your flowers.
  • Before tackling any of the jobs, do buy Plant Nutrients. Every 16 days, you can feed your plant some Plant Nutrients to get an easy +2 Kindness. There are times it can give you a +3, as well. This is especially important for certain Confidants later on.
  • Buy crafting materials at Yongen-Jaya Recycling Shop.
    • This makes it easy to craft lockpicks. That way, you won’t have to miss any items on your first run through a palace.
    • The store’s stock is random, so check every time you have the chance.
  • Head to Takemi Medical Clinic and meet Takemi Tae. Death Confidant will be acquired.
    • It is best to max the Death Confidant out, as she gives good items that can help with SP consumption. Spending time with Takemi usually grants +1 to Guts.

Evening

  • Clean the Protagonist’s room.
4/19 (TUE) Morning

  • Class Question: C (Knowledge +1)

After School

Evening

  • Chariot Confidant Rank 2 with Ryuji.
    • 1st Choice: I’m counting on you! (+3)
    • 2nd Choice: What about them?
    • 3rd Choice: Do you want to go back? (+2)
  • Use Plant Nutrients on the plant in your room (Kindness +2)
  • Talk to the customers to make them leave Cafe Leblanc. That way, you can either study in one of the booths or read a book at the bar.
4/20 (WED) Morning

  • Read on the train: ‘Pirate Legend’ (Guts +3)

After School

  • Head to the library to exchange the ‘Pirate Legend’ book for the ‘Zorro, the Outlaw’ book.
  • Prepare healing items and check character equipment.
  • Finalize the infiltration of Kamoshida Palace. Reach the treasure room.
4/21 (THU) After School

  • Send Calling Card.
    • On a personal note, we always deal with the boss right after I finish the infiltration. That way, we block out one of the possible bad endings. Besides, you have more room for your stats and social confidants this way.
    • Make sure you have your lockpicks. That way, you won’t miss any locked chests.

Evening

  • Crafting Items.
    • This is far better than relying on that godforsaken batting cage for Proficiency. Not only do you sharpen your proficiency, but you also produce useful items for infiltrations.
    • Our suggestion: make a lot of Lockpicks, Stealthanol, and Goho-M.
4/22 (FRI) Daytime until Evening

  • Kick Kamoshida to the curb and change his heart.
4/23 (SAT) Morning

  • Class Question: Singing (Knowledge +1).

After School

  • Spend time with Ryuji Sakamoto.
  • Chariot Confidant Rank 3
    • 1st Choice: Let’s Not Fight (+1)
    • 2nd Choice: Calm Down, Ryuji (+2)

Evening

  • Spend time with Sojiro Sakura (Hierophant Confidant Start).
    • This confidant needs a certain level of kindness to progress later on.
    • Once you reach Rank 6, you will have access to a number of useful items to help with SP consumption.
4/24 (SUN) Morning

  • There are a lot of things you can do today. Sell your stuff from the Palace and buy new equipment at the Airsoft Shop.
  • Make your way to the Diner to kick up a Stat.
  • Watch a movie at Shibuya Theater (Guts +3).
  • Buy from the Drink Stand in the Underground Walkway (Beauty Aojiru for +Charm).
  • Note: Special drinks from the Drink Stand are only available every Sunday, so be sure to check it out whenever you can.

Evening

  • Either read the ‘Zorro, the outlaw’ (Kindness) or study (Knowledge) in the booth. It’s a toss-up between Knowledge and Kindness.
4/25 (MON) Morning

  • Read on the train: ‘Zorro, the outlaw’ (+3 Kindness). If you hadn’t started the book yet, you can finish it this evening.
  • Class Question: Knowing your actions are wrong / Conviction that you’re right. (Knowledge +1).

After School

  • Exchange ‘Zorro, the outlaw’ for ‘The Alluring Dancer’ (if you finished).
  • Spend time with Tae Takemi (Guts +1).
  • Death Confidant Rank 2
    • 1st Choice: “I have a bad heart.” (+2)
    • 2nd Choice: “I agree.” (+2)

Evening

  • Spend 500 yen in the Bath House (+2/+3 Charm).
    • This would work better if it were raining. However, there’s also a chance that it’ll buff your Guts instead.
  • Take note of the SP Drinks from the Vending Machine near the Bath House.
    • It restocks every week and you can purchase two per restock.
4/26 (TUE) Morning

  • Class Question: Four (Knowledge +1)

After School

  • Spend time with Ryuji.
    • Note: Ryuji’s status varies if (A) You have a chariot arcana persona, (B) You’ve been constantly trying to rank up his Social Link, and (C) you haven’t been spending time with him at all.

Evening

  • Train on how to make Coffee at Café Leblanc.
    • Hierophant increases Rank 2 (+Kindness)
      • 1st Choice: Making Coffee (+2)
      • 2nd Choice: That guy seemed suspicious (+2)
      • 3rd Choice: I want the ladies to love me (+2)
    • Note: This is especially helpful when you’re running dungeons. A majority of the coffee heals SP. Most of all, this also helps in raising your Social Links should one of them want to hang out with you.
4/27 (WED) Evening

  • Choose between the following:
    • Study
    • Craft Items
    • Read a Book
    • Brew Coffee
    • Solve a Crossword Puzzle

    • When doing this, Ogikubo appears on the map and you guys can go get Monjayaki.
    • You can also invite people here later to increase your Social Link with them. Sometimes, another confidant will appear in that area making it a double whammy of Social Link points.

    • Make Coffee
    • Read a Book
4/30 (SAT) Morning

  1. Greetings! This is Ersatz from Samurai Gamers. We’ve just updated this Persona 5 game guide article just recently. Hope it is much better from your playing experience.

    If there are things that we weren’t able to add, please don’t hesitate to post your comments or feedback in general. Thank you again on behalf of SG!

  2. I have no idea how a starting character would be able to finish the castle in one day. I ran out of SP about a third of the way through, and physical attacks take way too long to be effective. Other than that this guide is very thorough and helpful, though.

    • I usually use more physical attacks than SP-consuming skills to have an easier time. It should get you at least to finish the infiltration.

  3. I already follow all your instruction but On April 19 when i spent my time with Ryuji in the 3rd choice i choose “do you want to go back?” But I only got 1 point (even i choose the other one i still got 1 point)

    • This may be due to lacking a persona under his Arcana. Check if you have a persona under Chariot. 🙂
