  1. Ive done everything exactly right up till 8/2 and Ann isn’t ready for rank 10 because apparently I haven’t done enough. Awesome…

    • You can read it now, H.

      Apologies for the wait since we have to optimize the Fortune Confidant’s luck and affinity readings per day >.< Thank you for using this guide ????

    • Hi Ybt! Just updated walkthrough.

      Took a longer time in order to test activities that will match Chihaya’s Luck Reading better.

      Thanks for the motivation!
