  1. Does true justice even does anything asude from story? Like other confident abilities that help like in battle or dungeon etc??. Or it just doesn’t do anything and it’s just story-wise??

    • true justice is supposed to represent the ending. Your choice will mac out your bond with her and as a result will allow her to aid you when you get the true ending.
