  1. I’m confused though, but I did not see this option in Rank 7. Did I miss it?

    4th Choice (P5R only): Romance – “No matter how much you like.”+3 / “Sometimes good” +2

    • Yeah, I don’t recall seeing those two options either, so this guide might have misled me out of the romance route.
      I think the correct option was to say “I’m glad you did.” when she drops to her knees, and if you didn’t pick it, you’re locked out of romancing her. Because the guide doesn’t indicate that this option specifically is for romance, I defaulted to the other option which gave the most points toward the confidant. Tough.

  2. Rank 8 phone call dialogue choices are actually “I’ll be cheering you on” and “Anything else I can do?”

  3. For Rank 7, you can also gain two points for choosing “Please be Quiet” when using a Persona of the Death Arcana

  4. The game won’t allow me to romance her. She keeps saying how nice it is that I share my feelings and leavesshoving me into the friend route. Help someone. Am I missing somethinh?

      • They really need to update this because the “im glad you did” option on the rank 7 hangout is the romance option and if not chosen will lock you out of her romance.
