    • This is it, they migrated the old version to a new page and put the new version on the old page. That’s why the comments are still here and the old guide has none.

  1. Can i ask about 8/20 about spend time with makoto

    When i meet makoto, the rank is continue about investigate eiko
    Not hangout to udoibashi

    Can you help me ??

  2. Fun Fact: Doing well at Darts on 8/15 means two separate bonuses to Proficiency, right? I just swung by for a Proficiency fortune and got a big bonus that day. Try it out.

  3. Can someone please translate the Sooty armors listed in the guide? Honestly, I have no clue which of these dirty armors that I need to clean. The translations provided in this guide do not match the English version of the game at all.

  4. What a fucking confusing guide. Why do you FORCE all dating for this to work ?? What I’m supposed to do with Ann and Takemi? What the fuck is “Red Anon” solution and why this is not written in the guide ? We should have the choice, I don’t want to date all girls, I just want my romance with Makoto but if I follow the guide it will fucking screw-up everything.

    My only guess is to ignore those days with social stats increase and choose Ann when she’s available to upgrade her to rank 10 whenever its possible.

    Btw why FORCE those insane early stats increase when SO MANY confidants are available.

    I don’t understand and this is coming from someone who had 0 problem with this guide UNTIL NOW because that romance forced bullshit romance screw everything up and no other alternative is mentioned…

  6. I am having the same issue with my Kindness not increasing to the noted level on August 28. Is there time to make this up later on? I tried add a couple of points by using Chihaya but it still didn’t help.

  7. I am having the same issues as a couple of other people have posted about. My Kindness doesn’t level up on 8/28 like the guide says and I have been following it all the way through. I used Chiaya’s Luck reading to get me a few extra points when I worked at the bar and got the drink from the Drink Stand and it still wouldn’t level. Does anyone know if changes were made to the English version of the game where some of the points that the author factored in aren’t in the English version? I am also off on Makato’s rank as well on 8/20. Is there some time later on this guide to make up for being off on Kindess? I remember when I played just P5 there was some time at the end of the game to make this up. I just don’t want to mess future months of the guide up.

  8. 8/20, I have Ann and Takemi rank 10 both, but Makoto in my case Rank up this day.
    Should I just rank up to makoto and do any other activity in September instead?

  9. Heads up, if you buy the “Complete set of phantom thieves” infiltration tools on 8/7 Sunday and beat the boss on the next day. You will glitch and not be able to acquire the items in the box because Sojiro isn’t in the cafe to remind you and initiate the cutscene. So there will be a box left there for you to walk on.

  10. For those going for the Ren Anon’s solution to Takemi, on 8/16 evening, don’t forget that before doing the Big Bang Burger Challenge you can do a fortune reading for Knowledge or Guts. It would give +4 or +5 (don’t remember if the bonus is round up or not) instead of +3. Dunno if you it would suffice to ignore some future +social stats event though.

  11. August 28th kindness does not increase to lv 5 and i have followed entire guide to the letter every route every social increase everything i think these invisible notes it talks about arent in the english version is why i didnt increase though also i got makoto up an additional rank on august 20th instead of being able to take her to hang out so that could be another change not sure though

  12. Good guide, but what’s with the excessive SP recovery items buys? I have hundreds of them by now and I maybe used 5 in the whole game so far. And even after I bought the 3 SP Adhesive 3 accessories, I am still supposed to buy the drinks? That’s such a huge waste of time and money.

      • I used this day to work at the Convenience Store to get a Mementos Request ID.

        Somehow I missed getting the ID for “Calling Justice for Cats.”

        I think it’s because I did the Ann friendship route and used the work day (8/14) to up her affinity. I was ahead on Charm from an earlier switcharound anyway when I couldn’t make Lockpicks, & instead read a book that upped Charm. Didn’t realize the Mementos request was linked to the Store.

        And since in the guide there’s another Mementos Request done in November, that cat one can be completed at the same time as that single request.

        So tl;dr: it’s a great day to do a daytime event you missed in the past that wasn’t time sensitive.

  13. Accidentally missed out on two points for Hifumi on 8/17 while doing the Ren Anon/Kurosu solutions. How badly would this affect her progression/the guide’s progression and is there any free time I can use to fix it?

    • It is a shame I cannot edit… I forgot to mention that my last save was before the reload-barrage for Yusuke and Makoto in darts… Yes, I am a fool for that.

      • Hello, if anyone reads this then can you help? In 8/16 the guide says to spend time with takemi, but i can’t. Is it because i chose friendship route instead of the romance rout? Please help.

        • Hello! Basically, this guide is based on romancing Ann and Takemi, and so, you have to adjust quite a few days in July and August to make up for it. If you have a save before 7/29, you might be able to salvage with solutions by Ren Anon (which is right below this comment) and Kurosu (which is pasted a few comments below, but is also pasted in the July guide’s comments with some important edits). However, if you have already changed to Kurosu’s solution (or you just romanced Ann), then you only need a save on or before 8/15.

          I made a Google Docs with the edits and some others, too, but I don’t think I can paste links here, haha.

          • I am glad that my solution helps Nomadian! I am trying to figure out a way to hep you with Hifumi but I am scrolling the August page and I see that fortune rank 5 happens way after some hifumi ones so I am kind of hitting a wall. You said you have a save before the dart part ? As painfull as it may sound I fear it might be the safest solution to simply play from that earlier date. I am currently at november and the guide progresses Hifumi ( and others) in a way to ensure that you do many memento requests in one ago. However there was 1 free night at octomber where the guide tells you to just sleep but I dont remember if Hifumi was available :/
            On a smaller note I took a glimpse on december page and I think its full of optional events for gifts etc. So maybe any catch up can be done there.
            I have to say its kind of strange to see that you went through the trouble to make a google doc with the solutions while the author of the guide still ignores the problem ( and doesnt make a warning about romances at the start of the guide which would be the very least)

  14. Hi, can anybody confirm that this solution post by Red Anon is working ?

    Here is the Takemi Solution.

    I actually think I found the solution to the problem with Takemi.
    8/13, choose friend route.

    8/14 same

    8/15, make sure that makoto is at the darts game to get that 1 extra point, otherwise this will not work.

    8/16, spend time with makoto and instead of takemi at do big bang challenge. It gets you all those big stat buffs earlier than what is anticipated but it all adds up as when you take again you’ll get the bonus gut points. Which makes up for not doing evening takemi

    8/17 same

    8/18, you’ll have enough knowledge and kindness to do without nostalgic steak based off my math. hang out with takemi at tsukishima, pick “go easy on me”. Results I’m “bond will grow”.

    8/19 same

    8/20 Rank up makoto, use the answers from the 9/20 day in the September guide

    Everything else is exactly the same until 9/20. At which point you can do the last level of Takemi.

    This keeps all nesscerary stat points for rank ups before needed while still getting Takemi to 10. I hope this helps.

    • Yes I can confirm it worked for me.As a side effect you will also get some stat rank ups earlier due to the burger challenge but it doesnt matter anyways.
      There also no further complications with romances on Priestess,Fortune and Temperence confidants. All of them rank 10 with the guide while following friendship route.
      I cant speak for Hermit Star and Empress but at this point you have fortune affinity boost and most confidants at 10 already. I cant possible imagine future complications

  15. on 8/30 I can’t bring chihaya to rank up, i ended up prepping to get her to up next time but is there a work around? when’s the best time to fix it? grasping at straws >.<

  16. I messed up ryuji confidants guide i’m now at rank 8 for ryuji’s confidant and i’m already at 9/18 anyone know how to fix this?

  17. I’m behind by one social rank in Ryuji and maruki. That chariot and councilor. Is there a good time to make these up? I especially need to know for maruki beacuse I assume he is tied to the new stuff. I’m on 8/4 right now

    • Thats because the author went romance path instead of friendship. Personally I did the burger challenge and on 8/18 instead of the steak I went to takemi to prep her up for rank 10.

          • Yes but I believe the key is to have her present at 8/15 as the extra attendant ( you still do darts with morgana and yusuke as the guide says). By her being present you get a +1 with her which I believe is the point that made her rank up faster.

    • There are slots in December where you have free time to make up for anything you missed. You can max Takemi here

  18. Who do we have to talk to about fixing this guide and get it updated or add correction notices,The mistakes are pilling up it’s just going to mess up more and more peoples playthrogh

    • The guide is actually pretty good besides the Ann/Takemi mess up. Everything else works exactly as its described, he only messes up some translation names ( especially books).But you can easily figure out what he means . I am at early September and so far everything works perfectly (except the 2 names I mentioned). The only things that dissapointed me is that there have been no warning at the start that he would chooce to go romance on multiple characters and how the July/August pages are completely ignored and instead we had to find the solution ourselves with brainstorming.Whats worse is that he will probably just take our solutions and add them to the guide when he starts polishing ( he claimed they will polish all the details when they are done with the “second edition” of the guide)

        • This is a copy paste from my solution posted on july :
          I found a solution to the ann problem. Tested it myself just now. The cost will be 1 twin hangout ( you dont really need them its just skill cards) and the unlocking of Shinagawa ( a hangout spot)
          On 7/29 instead of Akechi-Devil event go with Ann to the museum. You will get +2 from dialogues but it wont be enough.Therefore buy truffles from the mall just before you talk with her and you will get +3 and will be able to rank up.
          Important note : The 29/7 eventgives +5 points to Justice and + 3 to devil. However devil is already ready to rank up to 2 and devil needs 3 points to rank to 4. So dont worry about it.

          7/30 rank Ann to level 10 in the day, go Akechi at evening ( +3 points to justice).
          8/2 rank up With Akechi as normal at the evening
          on 8/3 Instead of going with the twins go do the Star rank up that you missed on 7/30 to prepare Akechi.

          Overall you would have traded the twin hangout at 8/3 with Ann rank 10. However I will once again note that this will also cost the unlocking of Shinagawa which would happen if you went with akechi at 29/7. The guide does ask you to go there with Kasumi at December but it says its OPTIONAL and probably is in order to get a gift.
          Extra note : I later found out you can unlock the aquarium by reading a book that is already available. Simply replace on the stat books at early octomber ( you will have max stats anyways)

          • Also a small correction on my comment, you dont need the truffles, just pick the third dialogue option in the museum.

  19. Hello dear, then until 19/8 everything is as you wrote, but there is a difference for Makoto on 20/8.
    The story that should be 20/9 gives it to me on 20/8, so it’s not a normal exit, so I assume that 20/9 will be a normal exit mentioned by you on August 20.

  20. How did you get a knowledge reading on 8/3 when in both the daytime and evening on 8/3 it’s raining? I’m on the date and it’s impossible to get any reading from Chihaya on 8/3 because of the rain both parts of the day???

    • Are you sure you are speaking about 8/3 ? He says to play crossword and then hang out with twins. Not to get a reading from Chihaya.

      • I clicked reply to childstar. He was saying that you could do it on 8/3 for extra time. Getting a knowledge reading without time passing and then do crossword on 8/3.

        • That does not make sense, as like you said: No Chihaya on 8/3 because both parts of the day are rainy.
          Maybe better to get the reading on 8/4 if Chihaya is available than? If you get a good reading at least. Because in teh evening you can answer the quiz on the TV for a extra Knowledge?

  21. It is possible to get Makoto to level up to 7 on 8/20 and that entirely depends on the very small chance that she joins the Darts on 8/8 with Morgana and Yusuke. Also, 8/24 did not have the Kindness Aojiro, but instead has Guts

  22. For 8/16: You can go to Chihaya for a fortune luck read and request a Knowledge boost. Then get a Nostalgia Steak for the 1+ Kindness and 2+Knowledge.

  23. So out of curiosity, are there any disadvantages to romancing multiple people apart from roleplay? Do you get any other cutcsenes or story when you date multiple? I mean, I respect people’s frustration for wanting to romance just 1 character, but I personally don’t mind too much as long as it doesn’t come back to bite me later in the game.

    • I dont know for royal version but yes it does on persona 5. On valentine’s day you are to spend time with your romance ( duh). However since you romanced everyone , ALL the females show up at leblanc and figure out what happened. Its sad and hillarious at the same time. Ofc everyone “forgets” about it at the next day due to writing.You can watch it on youtube or something. If solo romance there is a different dialogue and a gift depending on your romance. I dont know what happens in the middle ground ( say 2-3 romances instead of all of them)
      No idea about the concequences on royal.But I doubt there is a significant change. I prefer to see a new cutscene/ dialogue.
      People’s frustration is because there was absolutely no warning about it at the start of the guide. Other guides for example point from the start that they will assume every female will go friendship path in order to make the guide work for everyone. If you romance someone you simply get some extra free time. More logical dont you think?

      • Yeah I agree. Like many others I’m now a bit torn on what to do. I hope a clear and concise fix will be found soon by you or a user that makes it possible to just keep following the guide. I don’t want to start over but I also don’t want to start improvising every month from now on…

        • I have already posted a solution for Ann on the jyly part of the guide.It will require you sacrifice the 8/3 evening hangout with the twins. I havent reached Takemi part yet but I see a lot of comments claiming Makoto ranks up earlier so that might solve that issue as well

  24. If you get additional knowledge (such as 8/3 crossword and 8/17 crossword/hifumi event (for 8/17 you must use luck reading from daytime because it rain in evening), hifumi event on 8/25) and additional kindness (8/20 bar parttime job) from Chichaya luck reading. You can skip nostagic steak on 8/18 daytime entirely without any deficit.

    Despite no observed note on additional kindness point on 8/20 bar part time job >> My kindness still reach level 5 at 8/26 instead of 8/28 as the guide mention. So this proof the free use for nostalgic steak time on 8/18.

    And for me i choose to do makoto event instead of nostalgic steak on 8/18

    And that make my Makoto event change from non-rank up gifting event on 8/20 change to makoto ranking up event instead.

    This may mean that i don’t get this gift but have 2 event of makoto early than the guide schedule
    This may help for anyone who have something to do to keep up to the guide.

    Ps. For anyone want to benefit from this method. Don’t choose to drop off any part time job(i think it is safe for nostalgic steak eating or any +3 knowledge studying time), because part time job is not just for stats rising but for mementos quest to show up too.

    • My suggestion for the 8/18 is instead of makoto event to do a takemi one, in order to catch up with rank 10 ( author romanced her like ann)

  25. And for the best use of stat free increasing despite the no-increase level up

    Whenever in palace and mementos and the velvet room change to alert (red one)
    1. Itemize one persona you want
    2.1 register your sandman (to keep this same stat when you recall sandman later)
    2.2 Using sandman to combined with some unwanted persona > to get one highlighted-whatever persona
    2.3 strengthen your favorite persona with this highlight persona and failed >> it will give 10 random stats without increasing your persona level and you will be kicked out from velvet room. (If you don’t use highlighted persona you get only 5 random stats per time)

    Please note that strengthen persona this way (10 stats-increasing wonderful failed) have no limited time per day, you can do it again and again every time alert show up on that day but it is important that you don’t strengthen persona with the normal way early in that day before because it will prevent you from doing this cheat strengthening when the alert show up

    3. go back to normal velvet room and calling your registed sandman then strengthen him and level up for increasing luck

    So every time alert room show up, you will get 10 free random stats for your favorite persona and get more luck for your sandman (for money confusing cheat later)

    For the last planned alert velvet room before you leave, additional use training(lockdown) for double incense stat

  26. For further management each day in this month I would
    1. Strengthening my persona everyday >> one for your best damager persona and one for sandman (Keep rising luck > now i have sandman with 76 luck at 11/8). For the best, please use treasure demon for base exp
    2. Yusuke making one free skill card per day at underground mall, You will have lot of blank cards because you can exchange it with flower in mementos (I maxed out 99 blank cards from the mementos last month)
    3. If no rain >> i should check the guide that Does it mention chichaya reading on that day, if not then see what social stat you got from the activity in the guide on that day
    Please imaging if you get 3 more stat note by this method you can skip up some activity in these guide for anything you want (with the same related stat)
    4. Call Kawakami for doing 4 laundry in the evening
    5. If rainy day and evening >> i buy moist protein every time >> don’t know if i will use it later

  27. I don’t know if this will help…
    I strict to the guide from the beginning and change to harem-route in time cause everyone’s comment so i have to thank you all for this…

    Someone said problem about Seijio, i have seen some other guides said that you must have heiro.. confidant when you do toilet clean up or coffee making (so I think someone’s seijiro point may be mess up 2 months ago because you have no heiro persona at that time…

    For another advise for those can’t keep up to the guide >> please alway “use chichaya reading ability whenever the guide don’t told you to do to fullfil the gap”, I still keep up to guide but i always do these (overdo is better than deficiency later). >> for example if i go for knowledge luck reading for knowledge at 8/3, i got 2 note when doing the simple crossword instead of one note.
    And money is not the problem in this game…

    Later, i think you may keep up with some confidant using fortune reading too, i have read somewhere before that said it gave you hidden 3 relationship note per 1 fortune reading use >> so you may change the event from unsuccess to success rank up in one go later by using 1 or 2 chichaya reading (When i played original P5 before, I didn’t use this trick much in the 1st play because i fear it may lead to unable to get some gift because of rank up too quickly so that it has no use for event that friend will gift me (I haven’t confirm this hypothesis).

    Hope this help..
    I don’t know why it wont show up so i will try to post for the 2nd time

    • Takemi is not available at 8/16. I didnt romance her but i chose the dialogues that gave the most points to friendship… saying i love you but choosing the other dialogue. Was i wrong?

  28. I don’t know if this will help…

    • Sorry for mistake, affinity reading give 2 note of confidant when holding related persona (not 3 notes)
      And for those whohave problem with seijiro, you have one free time to use 1 more affinity reading for him at 8/28 evening

    • How did you get a knowledge reading on 8/3 when in both the daytime and evening on 8/3 it’s raining? I’m on the date and it’s impossible to get any reading from Chihaya on 8/3 because of the rain both parts of the day???

      • Sorry, that must be my mistake, because i write the comment around mid of august and have try to remember it back.

        But i want to tell you that there is lot of day that guide didn’t tell you to use chihaya and i use it every day, so i get guts, kindness, knowledge all ahead of the guide

        And now i play to 11/11, i also have 1-2 period time ahead of the guide.

  29. I got two affinity points with Yusuke on 8/15 after playing darts, don’t know if it’s because I have an Emperor persona with me or not

  30. You should remove the (romance) words next to the dialogues like on 8/28 for Chihaya. They don’t lock you into entering a relationship w/the person. The ones that will lock you into a relationship only happens when you get a black dialogue bubble saying something like “I should be careful with my words”

  31. You can get a few extra social stat points on top of what’s in the guide without skipping anything. can use this as a buffer or to fix problems that came up, or just to free up time later.
    Can just go to fortune on days the guide doesn’t list and spend the 5k for the reading boosts a few extras I did so far
    8/10 guts +1
    8/14 guts +1
    8/17 knowledge +2

    There were others I did it for as well, but I didn’t see the bonus notes on those days, and a few others I probably forgot/didn’t pay attention to

  32. More fixes, using the guide, I managed to level up Makoto to 7 when it should’ve been a generic hangout, so Takemi switch-around.

    8/16- Since she’s not available in the evening, go to the Diner and get the Nostalgic Steak there now instead of daytime on the 18th

    8/18- With the Diner already visited, go and spend time with Takemi to push her up ready to level.

    9/20- If I’m right, you should have levelled Makoto up to 7 by now already, if so, hang out with Takemi instead to get her to 10. If not… I ‘unno.

    • This is a very good advice. You can get a Knowledge read by Chihaya in Shinjuku for getting the +2 Knowledge (like you went to dinner on 8/18) instead of +1. Thanks!

  33. I’ve follow this guide entirely and choose ‘ friendship ‘ route for all except the one i want , Ann is still 9 i’ve follow everything else tho , i guess takémi will not grow too *sigh* it’s me or the guide considere that we’re all gonna romance everyone ? xD

    • Apparenly yes he romances any character that gives rank 10 earlier if romanced.It would have been fine if he had mentioned in at the beginning instead of people figuring it out on their own after 40 hours of gameplay.

  34. Okay so I did find the Stoneon Shop. However I have run into an issue for September that should of been mentioned in August which is getting Masukunda skill card. I’m going to hope I can somehow get it during my Mementos run in September otherwise getting the Jailer Twins to Rank 8 is impossible.

    • Why would it be impossible ? Skill card are not necessary for the twin ranks, they are just helpfull. Here is how to get rank 8 without a skill card : You need a Hecatoncheires with Masukunda. It can by fused with Lilim and Anzu. Lilim learns Masukunda at level 34. She starts at 32 but with the moon confidant bonus she should get the 2 levels. Inherit Masukunda during the Hecaton fusion. Here you go rank 8 is ready.

  35. There is a comment from the July month that fixes the ann issue and I just posted one that fixes the takemi issue. I hope this helps out.

    • Can you say the name of the person that posted the solution ? There are a lot of suggestions ( some of mine included) but none of them seem to solve the problem. I cant see your takemi comment either ( comments delay to appear saddly)

    • On second thought I found your name in the comments, are you reffering to the suggestion of denying 2 twin events and the akechi-reporter interaction ? That suggestion costs points with devil confidant AND TWO hangouts with the twins. A severe drawback.
      I cant find the takemi one though

      • The loss of devil points doesnt throw the rank up off at all from my testing. And the way I did it made you only lose out on one interaction and no reworking the moon. Basically, Akechi is available every night after a certain day until you rank him up. Then he isnt available again until after a certain day. I hung out with Ann on 7/29 day, skipping the akechi event. Hung out with Akechi 7/29 night instead of twins. This puts everything on track to happen exactly when it’s supposed to and you only miss one twins event. Which only nets you a skill card anyway.

        • Ah I see, your Ann solution is indeed simpler than the one the guy we commented on suggested. I didnt know Takechi is available on 29/7. I will follow your path since there are a lot of free nights in third semester to make up for the devil confidant ( at least there were in persona 5). I did some research on my own and the twins indeed only give skill cards , I thought there was a special reward in the end but it turns out they are just helping you to progress Strength confidant. Takemi sounds more complicated but I will give it a try since she is also available on days only most of the time. Lets just hope the guide doenst romance anyone else in the future…. Cheers for the suggestions I will try them out

        • Sadly, for some reason Akechi is not available on 7/29 in the evening. Possibly due to the rain? This wont work for me and possibly others too.

          • Not sure why it isn’t working, Akechi was available for me on that day. So I do apologize. Try the solution that loses the two twins hangouts. They serve no real purpose as most of the cards can be itemized now or you can use a fusion guide. I do apologize for that. Try akechi again on the other day you were slated to hang with the twins. So do twins pr something else on 7/29. Then hang with twins on 8/3.

          • Misspoke on last comment. Hang with akechi on 8/3 is what it should have said. He should be available one of the two days you hand with the twins. As I got the counter skill card so I only missed one twins hangout. Hope that helps

          • So to recap : the workaround is : 1) hangout with Ann on 7/29 instead of akechi event, at night go with twins.
            2)Ann ranks up normally at 7/30
            3) Akechi moved to 8/3 instead of twins at the evening.
            The guide mentions a rank up with akechi and 8/2 assuming he got the 5 points on 7/29.So maybe your suggestion is to go akechi both 8/2 and 8/3?
            Also someone mentioned it rains at 7/29 evening , I think takemi is available on rainy nights so maybe she can fit to the tactic?

        • After mupliple tests acroos the dates 29/7-5/8 , Akechi is not available on the twin dates. Which means your claims of doing so are simply impossible. I dont know why you write among multiple pages ( you typed in july as well) and mislead people to a solution that doesnt exist ,but I will kindly ask you to stop. We are trying to find a workaround here not confuse people…

      • Here is the Takemi Solution.

        I actually think I found the solution to the problem with Takemi.
        8/13, choose friend route.

        8/14 same

        8/15, make sure that makoto is at the darts game to get that 1 extra point, otherwise this will not work.

        8/16, spend time with makoto and instead of takemi at do big bang challenge. It gets you all those big stat buffs earlier than what is anticipated but it all adds up as when you take again you’ll get the bonus gut points. Which makes up for not doing evening takemi

        8/17 same

        8/18, you’ll have enough knowledge and kindness to do without nostalgic steak based off my math. hang out with takemi at tsukishima, pick “go easy on me”. Results I’m “bond will grow”.

        8/19 same

        8/20 Rank up makoto, use the answers from the 9/20 day in the September guide

        Everything else is exactly the same until 9/20. At which point you can do the last level of Takemi.

        This keeps all nesscerary stat points for rank ups before needed while still getting Takemi to 10. I hope this helps.

        • Hi dear, then I did like him in the guide, but since I was already engaged to Ann I had to make the Romantic options to unlock him, I don’t know if this will influence the relationship.

        • What is meant by “same” on these days, like 8/14? Are we supposed to hang out with Takemi or go to the job?

          This part is confusing because the job on 8/14 is used to unlock a mementos ID and it’s not mentioned elsewhere.

  36. Hopefully Ann and Takemi friendship route guide gets fixed, so far you cannot rank up confidant if you did not took romance route

    • Its been days and the author is proggressing his autumn guides (judging from the update dates). December etc are still to be made. I think he dropped the issue and progresses to finish the guide instead of correcting the mistakes at its start-middle. Well this turned out to be a dissapointment………..

    • I think it’s so you can get a Tower Persona for next month, which is a minimum level of 37. I don’t know why they don’t just say 37 if that’s the case though.

  37. Fix you’re messed up walkthrough. It works for a short time but because of the lack of certain things you forgot to tell me in this ive gotten myself screwed over and am way out of sync with what to do with confidants and even stats now because of this.

    • I actually think I found the solution to the problem with Takemi.
      8/13, choose friend route.

      8/14 same

      8/15, make sure that makoto is at the darts game to get that 1 extra point, otherwise this will not work.

      8/16, spend time with makoto and instead of takemi at do big bang challenge. It gets you all those big stat buffs earlier than what is anticipated but it all adds up as when you take again you’ll get the bonus gut points. Which makes up for not doing evening takemi

      8/17 same

      8/18, you’ll have enough knowledge and kindness to do without nostalgic steak based off my math. hang out with takemi at tsukishima, pick “go easy on me”. Results I’m “bond will grow”.

      8/19 same

      8/20 Rank up makoto, use the answers from the 9/20 day in the September guide

      Everything else is exactly the same until 9/20. At which point you can do the last level of Takemi.

      This keeps all nesscerary stat points for rank ups before needed while still getting Takemi to 10. I hope this helps.

  38. Since I didn’t romance Ann and she was stuck at 9, at 7/30 I spended time with her and in 8/14 instead of going to the convinicence store I maxed her out, still wondering how to max takemi

  39. on 8/20 you have it set to be a hang out at a certain location with makoto, however she is ready to reach confidant level 7 with me when i go to speak to her on this day, how it it i’ve ended up ahead on points with her

    • I can confirm this.Happened to me top, i hope i didn’t miss that gift forever.Makoto’s one of my favourites.Anyway, i think this is caused by the darts mini-game event.If she appear together with Morgana-Yusuke you get an extra affinity point.

  40. it would appear you default romanced every one of the girls that’s why you have “extra” points towards affinity, you should consider putting a warning for readers not to choose “friendship” options to fit the affinity points in the walkthrough.
    I will work around Ann and Takemi’s 10. because I did not got them.
    But is a nice work, and a lot of effort you put in this, nevertheless.

    • A warning isnt a solution. Some of us dont want to romance multiple people.I plan for Kasumi others for Futaba etc etc. On the other hand you cant make a guide that can predict all the romance options. Like you said we need to find a work around .If it helps you, I think there are 2 classroom events in the fall ( september and november) that give ann some points. No idea about a solution with takemi though

    • As some others have pointed out, it requires essentially romancing Ann and Takemi as I’ve learned from the comments. If romancing them is not what you want, there are some other guides.

      • Except that the other guides assume a whole different path through April- Late July. If you change your guide you will need to start from scratch. Considering we are almost half game it is far easier to just finish the game and max all confidants on new game + without having to care about stats anymore.

  41. The corrections still leave ann at rank 9 on 7/30, attempted this on April 2nd 8:23pm AEST. Either i’ve done something wrong or this was not fixed

  42. Hopefully the corrections won’t take long. I’m having to put playing this on hold til the Ann confident is fixed since as mentioned, she isn’t ready for rank 10 on 8/2.

    • Hello! Already made adjustments:

      7/30 Changed from Chariot Ogikubo hangout to Lovers Rank 10
      8/1 Changed from Chariot Rank 9 to Chariot Ogikubo hangout
      8/2 Changed Lovers Rank 10 to Chariot Rank 9
      8/3 No changes
      8/4 No changes
      8/5 Despite changes, Chariot Rank 10 is not affected

          • Yeah it’s just a bit tedious since now I have to start my playthrough over. Wasn’t expecting you to change July.

        • Here’s a lesson I learned back in Persona 3 FES. Rotate your saves, make a back up for each month at the start of the month. That way if you mess up you only have to lose that month of gameplay.

      • I do have a question about this that more leads to another issue I’m seeing, I’m going to modify my path to follow this one you’ve set. But does Death also have to be romanced to max out on 8/16? Cause I’m actually trying to romance Makoto.

    • So I have a few issues with this guide.

      Credit to the author in putting in so much effort, but some things have been incorrect and completely skewed my playthrough.

      Three major ones were:

      As with everyone else, Ann didn’t rank up for me from 9>10 when she should have by this guide. I have to now set aside a day just to make up for that.

      Kawakami for me, didn’t rank up from 4>5 when she should have, even though I had done nothing wrong.

      Yusuke was not available to hang out with on 8/3, the only confidant available to me on that day was Takemi, so I decided to advance that confidant instead.

      This guide definitely needs some touch ups.

    • I’ll replay this month since I have a file size in order to double check on this. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    • I had the same problem when I chose the friendship route. I reloaded a save file and went with the romance options and she was finally available on 8/16.

  43. 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!
