  1. I’m following the guide. However, on Sunday’s when we drink the juice, I do not receive the same stat increase you say we will have on the day. Did I do something wrong?

  2. I’m following the guide but on Sunday’s for drinking the juice. I get a different increase than the one you state.

  3. On 5/25 I never get a text from ryuji in the evening. Just in the afternoon asking if we are going to the palace. My Ranking with Tae isn’t as high as it should be on this date. Would this cause this issue?

  4. I have been following this guide verbatim but as of mid April on a visit with Ryuji to his hotspot the guide goes all wrong. The guide says there should be multiple conversion answers but on that date you don’t get asked but one question and it gives 1 note not two like the first answer in the guide suggests so I thought maybe I messed up in Ryuji’s relationship somewher so I started a new game, same thing again. Since that date almost every confidant “answer” in the guide for all confidants is incorrect. At the same time, reaching Madame’s palace you need 10 lock picks which take time to make but the guide, which says what to do every part of the day, doesn’t mention making lockpicks after those made in the first dungeon. Not being able to find and buy an official guide book sucks.

    • Hi!

      For me, it’s on your own discretion. When I played the game, I usually sent it right after finding the infiltration path. ???? But it’s really up to you if you feel ready to send the card. ????
