  1. Kasumi does have a 3rd awakening, but it only happens if she’s both maxed and you choose to spend time with her on the very last time slot (aka the after school slot on 2/2). You’ll get a short scene and then Vanadis will transform into Ella.

  2. So from what i’m understanding with this guide it sounds like if you don’t Rank Kasumi to Rank 5 before the Third Semester you are LOCKED OUT because there arent any dates for 4 months? Ain’t that a bit much?

  3. Little Easter egg, the glasses she has you wear in Confidant level 4 are the same model as Yu Narukami’s (P4 Protag)

  4. Rank three is off too. The fourth choice also has a point scoring choice, the second line, “It’s definitely unique”.

  5. Rank 2 guide is pretty off. None of the guide’s lines matched what was in game so going by the fact it’s using JP screenshots it’s either outdated or just really rough in translation. Either way here are my corrected parts from me going through the encounter.
    Choice 1: We’re just getting started +2
    Phone Call: Impressive is +2
