Overview

Confidants of each Arcana are made available over the course of the game. They allow the player to access new abilities as they raise their Confidant rank. There are moments that spending time with your chosen Confidant is not enough to improve your rank, especially with female characters. You need to buy them gifts to make sure that they will rank up when you interact with them next time.

Note that raising the confidant level of certain female characters will unlock a romantic relationship with them, allowing you to view special cutcenes. It is even possible to achieve a romance state with all possible partners during a playthrough which results in a unique and humorous event.

    • Guessing that they hit the “-” key instead of “0” when making the guide as they are right next to each other.

  1. Just a suggestion: Alongside the unlock date you should have a column noting whether or not a confidant becomes unavailable for an extended time or must be maxed by a certain date. It could help with prioritization for those not wanting to miss out on a certain character or not wanting to rigidly follow a guide.

  2. You should update with what requirements are needed to unlock (charm for Hifumi, Guts for Iwai, etc.), I find myself worried I don’t know if I’m building my stats right!!
