  1. for 1/27 go to Kitchijoji and listen to the first couple and then go to the adult couple in the alley and your allies will figure out his name

  2. How is it possible to go to the palace on 1/26? Morgana will force you to check out mementos instead if you try to.

  3. I want to tell that
    I go to mementos on 29/1 and accidentally go to the last floor of mementos and see jose there

    He mention something about promising someone to study human, i doubt this may hint persona6

    And after that he ask to fight us

    When we win and ask about who is he working for?

    He said “it’s a secret for now. You’ll find out someday.”

  4. On 1/27, the Request I received is not the one listed here but “Fake-Man Show” which requires going to Kichijoji to investigate.
