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


For Rank 7 if you choose ‘She’s a great doctor’ you’ll gain plus 2 points with a persona of the same arcana


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?
