  1. 10/6 and 10/7 with the Fortune and Death lines; with following this and another guide; which seems almost identical, I was instead given Mifunes Mementos quest instead of her Lvl 8 rank, and without being intimate with Takemi was only able to depend bond, not finish it.
    Not sure if there is a shift in who made the guide compared to previous months.

  2. I like how October has the playthough better written and distributed between Day/Night/Rewards for talking, etc.
    That being said, 10/3 reward should be Tower rank 4, not 6. Gave me a small heart attack because I thought THIS month came from a different guide as September; especially since this Month starts with a better written guide as last.
