    Question 2 choice 3 infinite
    Question 3 choice 3 forever

  4. So I didn’t get my Profiency rank up on 7/8 and I followed everything the guide said. Did I mess up somewhere? Also this guide has been really funky. Is it being updated consistently?

    • Dawg me too. We messed up on 7/8 where we were suppose to go for the romance option idk why they gave us an option for friendship if we were suppose to go romance in order to lvl up to max on 7/30 smh!

  5. So I got on 7/30 and I’m having to the Ann problem that everyone else is having (someone needs to fix this guid) anyway I know that their is a solution but from what I saw on the earlier comments it involves not going to the aquarium with Akechi but seeing that I have already done that is their another solution for my situation?

  6. Sorry if this has been answered, the formatting on the comment section is a bit atrocious but, following Kurosu’s Ann Solution, since you skip a Twin event and it seems you have to do them in order for them to unlock correctly, what month/day would you be able to make up that missed date?

    • You can make up on lost activities due to accident in December. As for below comments the guide says recommended meaning the choice to follow all of it is completely upto you. As for miscellaneous items like protein and sp recovery items are completely recommended again you don’t need to buy any. As for female confidants romancing then is A PLAYER choice you don’t have to If you so desire, for completionist there’s a special scene for when you DO romance everyone, so there’s that for that portion.

  7. Giga garbage guide just edit it or delete it before confusing even more people.

    Now I discover the fucking nonsense at 7/20 like how the HELL you except people to craft tools that arent even unlocked since we need rank 6 magician ?

    Fucking terrible guide.

  8. TERRIBLE GUIDE just TERRIBLE

    forcing romance but not mentioning it, forcing early stats and delaying confidants, relaying on some absurd RNG and if you FUCK UP just ONCE you are pretty much done with your run or have to make so many reearange that it isn’t even fun.

    Fucking TERRIBLE.

    • Yea, not mentioning the romance being needed for Ann and Takemi is a huge issue. As for everything else, the RNG is fine as long as you save.

      June and July is where everything seemed to slowly come apart, but with help in the comments, the run can still be salvaged! Follow the Ann and Takemi workarounds and you should be good; you’ll have plenty of time in December to get them rank 10.

  9. 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…

    Holy shit I’m pissed…

  10. SOOOO FRUSTRATING! HOW DO THEY RXPECT YOU TO FARM 1MIL YEN USING THIS SANDMAND CONCEPT WHEN TO TRIAN TAKES DAYS?!?! NOT SECONDS!! AND YOU NEED TO USE THE FRICKEN SANDMAN YOU MAKE ON THAT DAY IN MEMENTOS TO COLLECT ONE MILLION YEN. ITS LIKE A DUMB ASS CHICKEN OR EGG THEORY. I NEED SANDMAN TO FARM MONEY ON THIS DAY BUT IT TAKES DAYS TO MAKE SANDMAN AND I WAS GIVEN NO HEADS UO TO CREAT HIM! INFACT THE DANG GUUDE LITERALLY SAYS CREATE HIM THEN. WAIT TO LEVEL UP ON OR BEFORE 8/2 THAT MAKES NO SENSE THIS IS A DAY BY DAY GUIDE YOU IDIOT!!! PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP BEFORE I PULL MY OWN TEETH OUT!

    • somebody please take a look at 7/26!! SANDMAN!!! YOU CANT MAKE/TRAIN HIM AND USE HIM ON THAT DAY!!! and explain how we are supposed to make sandman, put him in training while we are in mementos and pull him back out before finishing mementos?!?!?!? THAT MAKE COMPLETELY NO SENSE!!! how can i put sandman in training and level him up to 40 luck if i need him to confuse the bosses of the missions THAT I HAVE TO DO DURING THAT MEMNTOS INFLITRATION. this is literally driving me crazy trying to explain and making me so frustrated. you cannot create a sandman. train him for momentos without leaving momentos. training does not advance unless the day advances. you neeed him to farm certain momento bosses for millions that they specifically syay you have to get!!! and this is a day by day guide. im beyond frustrated at whoever made this guide to the point of fist fighting/ and tears.

      • I mean…. I left with almost 2 million yen (1.8mil) farming with confuse on the appropriate bosses. Without using Sandman. You can still use other characters that have pulinpa or any other ability that confuses. THe problem is that it takes time. That’s the problem.

  11. For anyone that are having trouble with the whole Ann/ takemi. From December 8th to basically the 22nd is free time so you can just make it up from there. So keep following the guide and you should be fine.

    • Hi, so I could just skip the event on 7/30 and follow the guide until December or do I still have to to the event on 7/30 ?? Thank you for your help 😉

  12. I am 7/26, due to lack of funds I am a social link behind on Kawakami so wont be able to do her request in the mementos run any advice to make for it?

  13. I forgot to return the 90210 DVD on 7/26 and therefore could not get the +3 Kindness that day. Still got +1 Kind by cleaning the toilets but I would like to know if this is a dramatic error or if I can catch up later in the game and still continue using this guide 🙁

  14. What’s the point in buying SP recovery ítems all the time. You could probably Buy more SP Adhesives with the money you end up spending and by midgame they’re completely useless

  15. I have some questions regarding the “Ann and Takemi problems”.

    Before anything else I want to say that this guide is pretty spot on on what to do. I’m now at 7/8 and haven’t got a single problem…thus far!

    So yeah I just reached the first romance option in the game on 7/8 with Ann. What I want to know is what is the guide telling you to do exactly? Are we supposed to romance Ann or friendship her on that date so that the rest of the guide works? I wanted to go Kasumi like pretty much a lot of people but I can go Ann if I need to. I can do Kasumi on my second playthrough if I want and also; will I have to romance Takemi later on too for the guide to work? Thanks for the answers in advance you guys rock!

    • I completed the game just 2 days ago l. You get plenty of time in december (before the final boss). I think you get a a couple of days of Free time. Tho I am unsure if both ann and takemi are available tho

  16. Hi did all of u get the rank 4 proficiency on the day stated, I did all the reloads and do not get it on the day stated

    • I did not get it either. I was able to get it with the DVD tho, so you’re missing just one proficiency point. I’m looking to see if it’s important or not; it turns out that for some scenarios you don’t need that point at the given time or something else gives you enough to level up the next time.

  17. 7/12 it says to read Flowerpedia. Wouldn’t it be better to do something else more useful ? Read another book (knowledge +3 at this date) or even hangout with Akechi, Ohya or Ryuji ?

  18. Hey guys. I saw the comments about the Ann/Takemi thing. Just to be completely sure, if I want to romance someone else than those two (because Futaba best girl), is it still possible to get Ann AND Takemi to 10 ? (With the comments of some users here to fix this issue)

    • Also, another thing I don’t understand is like 7/9 for the Kawakami dialog it says “Romance”. But if I remember well, the romance status isn’t set at this moment ? Or does the guide is just telling that if you want to romance her later (at rank 9) you HAVE to take this option ? I find this confusing…

  19. I had a problem, and I have two days to go up to 10 for both ann and ryuji, any advice on what day to resign to go up to 10?

  20. Hi, the comment section is confusing with all the solutions for Tae and Ann. I just want to romance Kasumi without deviating too much from the guide. Could I please get a concise dates/ times where I need to alter the guide to get Tae and Ann to be just friends rank 10?

    • Greetings, I also went for Kasumi romance so I was in the same spot. Use my solution for Ann and Red Anon’s solution for takemi. They both worked for me.I just reached early december and I maximized all confidants to 10. The guide also has a lot of optional-gift and gym events in december so you can also make up for lost time there.
      If you decide to follow my workaround you will see that I say that at some point you will need to read a book to unlock the aquarium. At an octomber there is a night where the guide tells you to just sleep. Use that night to read the book.

  21. Hi! I will like to romance only Kasumi, but in 9/7, in the kawakami confidant, only gives the romance option, will this screw me?

  22. currently reloaded a save of my run on 7/27 because i couldn’t bring my confidant to 10 with ann on the 30th, anyone know what i can do to fix it or can i just switch up my confidant activity a bit?

    • I have listed an Ann solution earlier this month on this page. It comes with sacrificing a night with the twins.However I have now progressedto late Octomber and I can also say that there is a night where the guide merely tells you to sleep. So you can freely replace it at that date.

      • Is this also where we can continue the one we missed out on the twins? I read it is needed for the outing on the month of January

        • On 7/20 it says to craft a bunch of infiltration tools you haven’t unlocked yet. The new tools unlock when Morgana reaches rank 6 on 7/25. It seems more important to focus solely on getting the proficiency +3 boost.

  23. I have a question, i was following the guide. However, on 6/4 (June) i could not talk to ann. Subsequently, on 6/7 i could not find Ann yet again. Any idea what i can do to make sure i can max Ann out by July? Any help will be appreciated!

    • The Ann situation happens before takemi but yes just choose romance lines on the Rank 9 takemi event.So just follow the guide regarding Takemi.
      If you wish for an Ann solution I have posted one in the comments below. After reaching octomber I can also confirm that there is a night where the guide tells you to simply go to bed, in which you can replace the twin hangout that I sacrificed.

  24. Hi, i have yet to reach this stage, but from reading through the comments i can tell that the author romanced both Ann and Takemi. However for my playthrough i am only willing to romance Takemi. So what should i do? Should i follow the guide, or is there any other way? Any help will be much appreciated

    • Not from the looks of it, the author has abandonded the old months. I have listed an Ann solution below and another user has a Takemi solution on the August page ( i think he listed it here as well somewhere). I can confirm both of those worked. I reached octomber and I have both Ann and Takemi at rank 10.
      A minor note : Kawakami, Makoto and Fortune confidant have no issues. I reached rank 10 normaly following the guide . Only 3 females left to see if there are any issues.

        • I thing this is this one, but i need a confirmation by someone who tested it.

          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.

  25. I read all the comments, and thank to all of you I stop before doing somehting wrong.
    Just to be clear, if I follow this guide and take the romantic road with both Ann and Makoto, is this guide still 100% accuracy ? (besides the fact on the crafting tools on 7/20 as mentioned). Thank you in advice and pardon my english i’m French.

    • Yes besides those 2 the guide has been accurate for me so far ( i am at early september). However we have found workarounds around the Ann Takemi issues as well if you wish to stick with someone else ( or just 1 of them). The only other minor issue are translations on names of books etc but you can easily figure out what the guide means

      • Thank you very much fort your answer. I see the workarounds, good work !
        The book translations is not an issue, even in the french version of the game.
        Just one more question if I may, is there another confident apart Ann and Takemi which requires to take the romantic road for the rest of this guide ?

        • Up to the point I have reached, no dont think so.It followed friend path on Kawakami and if I recall right from persona 5 Makoto gives the same amount of points despite if you go friend or romance.The same applies to the fortune confidant . There are more female confidants coming in later months though that I have no idea if he goes romance or not. But I havent seen any comments saying there was an issue with any other confidant besides Ann or Takemi. I will make a comment here if I see something however I am still near the middle of the game at 9/6.

          • Thank you again for your answer and for your solution for Ann problem. It was very helpful !
            Too bad thant we, player, have figure it out by ourself because this guide, which is good so far, never mention that you have to take the romantic road…
            But you and the guy who finds the solution for Takemi did a really great job for us !

  26. Does anyone have a work around for the ann/takemi situation i saw a comment saying to follow one the ann solutions then follow the takemi one in the august page but i cant find the latter.

    • The takemisolution is written by Ren Anon ( or red anon i cant recall). Ctrl+F while on august page and you will find it easily. I also have my own Ann solution here in july page

  27. Thanks for writing this guide it’s been a real help but I have a question. During the mementos requests on 7/26 before entering I forgot to exchange the previous DVD for the ICU one and missed out on 3 kindness points? Will this affect the outcome of things? I’m worried cause I know some parts require specific social stats.

  28. I realized while going through the guide. I forgot to eavesdrop on 7/30 for the One who bullied the bullies and had accidently saved over it. Is there another way to fix it? Or would I have to get it through a new game +?

  29. My Ann confidant doesmt say its going to rank up on 7/30 ive done everything up to this guides expectations i dont know what to do

    • Its an issue a lot of us complained about. The author of the guide went romance path for Ann,thats how you can rank her up on 7/30. I wrote down a solution a few comments below, it will require you to sacrifise a hangout with twins at 8/3 but even that can be fixed later when you will have a lot of free nights ( probably, at least you did in persona 5). Look for my comment at the 11th of April

        • So, by the time i reached 7/6, it says that my guts would have ranked up to rank 4, but it didn’t. Can you please explain if this is a mistake in the guide or not. And will i be able to salvage this problem in a later date in game? Please help because i spent a long time following every single detail from this guide and i don’t want all my work to go to waste.

          • I was in the same boat, but i figured out what I missed, during after school, while it isn’t raining go sit on a blue bench in kichijoji, it should be east of the dumpling shop

  30. Hi dear, I’m in this month, since in April I didn’t do a +1 Proficiency which busted me a bit, can I recover it when I have to burn the statistics?
    Will there be free nights ahead?

  31. Hey mate , glad to hear I helped. If you can please clarify which days to use the luck reading. For example do you use it on 8/8 on knowledge where you get 1 knowledge from crossword and 3 from reading ? And on the next day 8/9 before the flower shop for kindness etc ?
    I was also planning to try Ren Anon takemi solution so I am glad it works.
    Regarding the Aquarium I posted a solution for it a a comment to myself. Go buy an aquarium related title book from Shibuya bookstore. Dont read it yet.At some point the guide will ask you to read stat books when slack in classroom or the train even when you have them maxed ( probably for a thieves den achievement) replace on of those books for the aquarium one.The date I have my eyes on is early octomber where he says to read a kindness book ( or was it charm i dont remember). That way you will also have the aquarium ready for the guide’s planned twin hangout event at early octomber

    • I can confirm as of 8/20 the workaround works. I’m not yet at 9/20 but it said during Takemi’s hangout that she would rank up soon.

      I wasn’t sure when to use the luck readings so I did the following:

      8/4 – knowledge
      8/6 – kindness
      8/7 – charm
      8/8 – knowledge
      8/9 – kindness (same as guide)
      8/10 – guts
      8/11 – charm (reached rank 5 here instead of 8/12)
      8/13 and 8/14 – guts
      8/15 proficiency
      8/16 – knowledge (boosts the gain from doing Big Bang Burger Challenge as instructed in the Takemi workaround)

      Not sure if they’re all necessary but I’ve not had any problems so far.

      • Well it only costs 5k so its better safe than sorry. You can easily get all your money back from a single negotation. I have to say though I am exteremly dissapointed that so many of us had to brainstorm solutions and the author is MIA for 8 days.

        • First of, thank you for all your hard work in posting work around. Honestly I went to her every day I knew I was going to get a stat point that this guide listed, since she’s is available during the day. Using the death confidant work around, by the end of the summer nearly all of my social stats are maxed, only guts remains un-maxed and I skipped both the nostalgic stake and the LeBlanc study sessions. Working my way towards 9/20 for the death rank up but I know that it will happen as I got the prompt after hanging with her once. So in theory we have 2 open spots to catch up.

  32. So here is what I did to solve the problem. 1) I followed Kurosu’s detailed soulation posted in the july page. 2) The moment you unlock luck readings, use them at every given opportunity, this guide underutilizez them but they can give you an edge up. If you keep using the serive and rack up extra knowledge and kindness you can skip both the nostalgic stake on 8/18 and the studying on 8/19. 2) Their is a Takemi soulation posted by Ren Anon on the August page, this is the one I used. If you follow both solutions and utilize the luck readings, you can hang out with the Twin’s, the event missed, on 8/19. All that is missing is the Aquarium, but this can be obtained by reading a book. This works as I am doing it as of now.

  33. Thanks for the tips. What do you mean by having Makoto as 3rd partner on 8/15? Do you mean as an attendee, or do you play with 3 partners at that point?

    • I am sorry for not being more clear. I mean she should be the third person attending but she should not be your partner. All she needs is the +1 from being there. Also, you should follow as the guide suggests for the scores. You’ll need to make sure to win with your two partners, and get to the round that allows them to ask you for help and respond as the guide indicates. This is all tested; I have just finished the palace in early October and everything is back in sync with the guide.

  34. I have solved the Ann and Takemi problem without sacrificing anything.
    7/30 Day – Hang out with Takemi instead of Ann. This gives the one extra day you need to catch her up so you can follow Takemi as normal from there.
    08/15 Day – At the darts game, invite Yusuke and get either Morgana or Ryuji as your second partner. The third player MUST be Makoto. This lets her rank up a day faster than the guide.
    8/26 and after: You now have access to Chihaya’s affinity fortunes. the guide uses them often but not every time she is available. check in with her every night until you catch her free and do an affinity ranking for Ann. Bring a Lovers Arcana and you will only need to see her at most twice.
    9/20 Finish Ann instead of doing Makoto.

    • Sorry for bothering. Did you try it, or is it just a theory? I have another question too: On 08/15, when you say to play darts, is it needed to do any score in particular? I mean the 3x Bullseye or 3x triple 20. Thanks for the help!

    • Sorry for bothering, is this a theory or did you already try it? On 8/15 when you play darts, you have to do something (3x bullseyes or similar) in order to do what you are explaining, or just having Makoto as the 3rd player? Thanks for help, really helpful!

    • hey sorry but what did you mean by this gives you one extra day you need to catch her up? should i hang with ann on the day the guide says to hang out with takemi at the start of next month?

      • 7/30 Day – Hang out with Takemi instead of Ann.
        Then keep following the guide as normal, 8/13 you still hang out with Takemi.

        You will be using the Chihaya’s affinity fortunes to build affinity towards Ann

    • What did you do for Takemi, though? Going by your solution, Takemi should rank up to level 10 on 8/13, but for me, she isn’t.

      • She still should get rank 10 by 8/16.
        That’s what the other guy that commented means by “This gives the one extra day you need to catch her up so you can follow Takemi as normal from there.”

      • I still haven’t gotten to makoto’s rank 10 event.

        But she should rank up a day faster than this guide due to bringing her as the 3rd player at the darts mini game judging by what the other person posted before.

        I’ll test it out and see if it works for her case.

        • I tried this out, currently at 9/27 and Makoto doesn’t quite work out with this method. Also had to rotate a different event to handle Takemi rank 10 since she didn’t appear on evening of 8/16; instead I had a burger and hang out with her during the day time next time. Otherwise I follow the guide closely and hope to work out Makoto at some point soon.

  35. Can I just finish Ann & Takemi’s social links on early free days in December? I don’t want to sacrifice twin events even if they hardly do anything. I would just miss out on 2 training sessions in December. Just want confirmation that my plan will work. Can someone Please Confirm???

  36. I messed up the councilor social link by not bringing the right persona for rank 4 so I’m stuck at rank 4 now and am on the 13th of June. Is there a point before 9/20 when I can get the missing rank without falling to far behind?

    • I did this kind of mistakes on Persona 4 Golden, and I advise you to give priority to him. In case of Maruki, you want to rank it up in order to unlock the 3th semester. You should try to move a day event from another confidant (Ann, Ryuji, Yusuke or Makoto, for instance) that they guide tells you to do on mondays or fridays (the days Maruki is available). Is not ideal, but you will have free time in December to do that event you sacrificed. Hope this helps.

  37. Is there really no easy swaps for Ann and takemi? Maybe boost fortune to the rank where you get affinity readings sometime in August, do an and takemi enough for tank 10 instantly without going lover route for either, and swap hangouts in September to 7/30 and takemi rank 10 day in August??? Just some solution with No Drawbacks. The guide has been perfect up to this point… Maybe swap 2 protein training day’s with ann and takemi hangouts as early as possible???

    • I have posted a solution for Ann at the cost of a twin hangout event on 3/8. I have an idea for takemi as well but I need to finish the 4th palace first.

  38. Hi Ersa I created a Sandman persona based on your guide and I was wondering how you got 40,000, yen using Pulinpa? My sandman used Pulinpa on Fuu-ki but it doesn’t throw away 40,000 yen?

    • Good luck expecting a response from him lol. July and August have a ton of comments asking what to do with ann and takemi issue and he doesnt even bother.After 6th of April he ignored this month.

    • Strange, it was pretty rare but Fuu-ki also trow away 40,000 yen on some turn for me (but most of the time it was just an item instead of money). But honestly, trying to get money based on luck + Pulinpa is really not the best way to get money in the Mementos, after using it on Fuu-ki (and only on Fuu-ki, i didn’t use it on Oberon, he really like to use Mazionga, an element that Sandman and Morgana are weak against so for me it’s clearly not a good fight to use it) i did not put Sandman in Lockdown like it was stated in the guide, i deleted him from my personas because having a Magician Persona is really not helpful while maxing up Confidant and put all my stamps point in treasures.

      Between Cognition Treasures lv.11, Chariot confidant lv.7 “Insta-kill” and a team almost lv 34/37 i just had to run around in Mementos killing everyone without a fight and getting 11 Materials/Treasures every time i found something on the ground (in a little more than one hour of farming i got 500K by fighting and 940K in treasure to sell + what i already had on me), the treasure lv.11 also work on those ATM you can find at the start of some level, i was farming on Path on Kaitul lv.7 (to be able to save on lv.6 whenever i wanted) and there is often an ATM at the start of the level that give me a Chewing Soul and it did give me 11 Chewing Soul every time it appear (so yeah, 20/30% of the time i’ve done that level i got 11 item that give 100 SP to an ally, way better than those 5 SP items that we still have to get if we follow that guide, those Stamps level are just broken).

  39. So I went to Feburary on the guide and noticed free time there, is it possible to just hang out with ann and takemi on their rank up dates and be level 9 with them, and then max them out in Febuary on 2 free days, instead of taking protein and going to the gym? I’m on 7/26 Before going into memento’s. I’ve followed the guide to the letter and have gotten everything right. I don’t want to go the multiple dating route.

    • Well.. bunch of holes in the guide but only one I really have to complain about ow using the sandman exploit against there recommended shadows is a bad call, it’s borderline impossible to get fuu ki to drop money more than like 5 Times and using it against Oberon is idiotic as the mazionga will undoubtedly kill you in a battle of attrition while trying to farm the money. I will farm the money myself but it will take some time

  40. Is the crafting of specific tools and the Mona dialogue essential or is it just the Proficiency +3 we need?

    As others have said it’s impossible to craft all tools before 7/25 (Mona rank 5-6)

    • Check the comment right below, I have writen a solution.
      No idea if you truly need them but I certainly didnt need lockpicks either, had over 20 at this point and eternal lockpick farm starts in next palace

  41. Reading the Flower Book on 7/12 seems kinda useless, no? I don’t think it increases kindess gained from working or anything and couldn’t I just look up answers when working at the flower shop? Why not hang out with someone else available or read a different book?

    • I’m totally with you on this. This book is useless and you can read it way later. I think it’s better to read something else (more useful) or hangout with someone. Any enlightenment here ?

  42. I have been following this guide up till 7/20. Here it tells me to craft at least one of each infiltration tool. However, you don’t unlock most of the tools until Magician is at rank 6. So this is a big issue to the guide.

    • You are right , they unlock on 25 when you rank up morgana. The tools are not that necessary imo, however here is the solution and the steps I took :
      You will transfer the crafting to July 25th. So just move all the Leblanc activities one day earlier. To be precice I did : Bubbly Hills dvd on 20th, Retro game at 21th 2th AND 23th. Then do the crafts 2th. Same activities, just a different order.
      There is a catch though : the guide completely forgot that you need to move outside of leblanc in order to buy the video game.So you MUST buy it on or before the 20th. Because afterwars you wont be able to get out of leblanc at nights until the 26th.

      • This actually is probably not necessary. I just ended up making lockpicks anyway – all I cared about was the +3 proficiency. There’s a trophy for crafting every item, but I don’t really care.

  43. 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.

    • Threenotes on my original comment
      1) I made a typo on the last line of first paragraph. I meant justice needs 3 points to rank 4
      2) You dont need truffles for Ann after all. The third response at museum gives 3 points if you have a lovers persona. You wont even get the option to give a gift because you will be set.
      3) I found another way to unlock Shinagawa , through a book from the bookstore. As for the time needed to buy it, the guide maxes most stats by the end of summer and yet suggests to keep reading stat books when you have free time ( train – class etc). This is probably in order to get the thieve’s den ach to read 40 books. Just replace one of those reads with the one that unlocks the hangout. One good example is early octomber when the guide asks to reach some kindness book ( which is already maxed).
      So in the end you will only delay a twin hangout which might even be possible to do in the fall that has a lot of free evenings ( at least it did in persona 5)

      • Thank you so much for the solution! However, the twin hangouts aren’t that useless. I read online that you can unlock one final outing with them in January if you complete all of them excluding Miura beach, Ueno museum and Shibuya Station Underground mall. Maybe we can do the one from 8/3 at a later date instead of one of the 3 mentioned above so we can see that final outing.

        • I will try to fit them at an evening on Autumn.Hopefully they can fit, there were a lot of free evenings at Persona 5 near the end.

          The reason I chose to trade the twins its because I checked the guide and every day is busy either with stats or confidant rank ups. And I know that author did the same thing with takemi so that would be another problem to solve on August( not to mention the upcoming Tower confidant is also available at days) I will try to come up with a solution for takemi as well.

          • Did you make any progress with that ? I’m at 7/10 and I’m considering taking a little break until I’m 100% sure there’s a way around both takemi and ann

    • Sadly this solution doesn’t seems to work for me, tried 3 different times (even by going back to my oldest save on 6/27), Akechi is not available on 8/3, he is beside the Penguin Sniper in Kichijoji but only say that he “need to get to work” so i can’t get his rank up to level 4 that day. Honestly between that “Romance Everyone” bullsh*t (i guess it’s going to be a mess later on that guide if it’s continue that way, a little note at the beginning of the guide would not have hurt… i would not have lost 50 hours on that playthrough following it), the craft all infiltration tools on 7/20 (before they are available on 7/25 and even without the materials to create them since, if you follow this guide, you would only get them in Mementos on 7/26), and the save scum from last month (i almost trow my pad at the screen on 6/21…) i’m going to drop that guide, i will rush to the ending and try another guide for the 100% confidant next time. However i still want to say thanks for trying to get a solution.

      • Regarding Metshael : my lack of commas probably caused confusion, you are mean to hangout with akechi at 7/30 night and 8/2.On 8/3 you are meant to hang out with Star confidant with whom you didnt hangout at 7/30 (as the guide says) in order to go to Akechi. I hope that helps.

        Regarding Nike : Yes you can freely hangout with twins at 7/29.My solution only sacrifices tha hangout of 8/3.

        Regarding anonymous : I havent made progress, finished 4th palace last night , but According to a lot of people comments on august, the solution for takemi writen by ” Ren Anon” works perfectly. Use ctrl+F while at august page and write his name. You will find his suggestion at the fifth search result.

        • I know it might be asking a lot, but could you broad stroke your path for us, like break it down in brackets on which days to do what. I’m currently using this guide and I’m spending my fair amount of time in Mementos today so I’d like to get the proper path before I get to the point where I mess up.

  44. Could this be a possible solution, instead of hanging out with Ann on 7/30, do the next available daytime event in the guide, essentially skipping this event and creating a free time slot. Then at every available opportunity, rush fortune to rank 5 and take advantage of the days she is available and get your fortune read and use these days to boost lovers and death confidants? This should create some additional days to maximize of the benefits of her services and potentially get the needed points towards those rank ups when they occur (if skipping the romance option). My only concern is that we would be skipping some moon, sun and star events temporarily. We would make up for these, in theory, on the evenings this guide tells us to do the fortune events since this would be free time slots.

  45. for 7/27, because I read the dialogue instead of the option. to friendship Kawakami make sure you sec “Got it” for friendship. You get 2+ notes instead of 0 notes. I selected “I’m Master; Your Maid” and I got no points which is a mistake.

    • If anyone reads this before making the same mistake, this guide has that interaction all messed up (at least in the non romance route), for friendship it should be, in order:
      Option 1 +3
      Option 2 +3
      Option 2 +2
      Option 1 +2
      and for the phone call:
      Option 2 +2

      I appreciate the work behind a guide like this, but I hope the mistakes get fixed sometime, as of I know I think I was unlucky to pick this particular one to follow on my first playthrough…

  46. For the days concerning “Star Forneus” it says ‘Buy’ instead of ‘Play’. Nothing big but I wanted to point it out.

  47. Well guess I’ll just drop the game for a couple months and come back when a better/more complete guide is released elsewhere. This check guide/check comments to make sure I dont fuck up shit is getting old really fast. Its a shame I had to throw 50+ hrs at the game to find out.

  48. Still no real solution for Ann huh? I know there’s going to be a bunch of free time near the end of the game but the rest of the guide isn’t even done yet – I don’t want to take the risk.. I wish there was some discord server where we could discuss these kinds of problems, or even straight with the author.

  49. hey so i’ve looked up other guides and read other posts and questions online and it seems that we don’t actually need the sun arcana because that confidant always levels up.but you guys say to have the arcana in your party. so what is the truth?

  50. For this guide I chose to date Ann because she’s the one I had feelings for even from the first game. I see Kasumi more as a friend and this guide hasn’t been troubling for me so far.

      • Actually I’m choosing to to go platonic on Tae Takemi and the other gals. Currently on rank 7 and have brought a persona matching her arcana too. Just need to finish her mementos request.

  51. Hey guys, so far been following this guide to the T. However, I completely forgot to water my plant on 7/8. haha. So far the guide’s been perfect. If something doesnt happen for you, you for sure missed something because so far its perfect. Should I be worried about that plant though? Is there a fix? I watered it 8 days later, lol

      • I have followed this guide perfectly 5 times and every time at 7/1 Ann doesn’t want to rank up I’m using a lover’s persona and choosing the correct options wtf is wrong I had the same thing happen with Kasumi

  52. As long as you guys follow things properly there shouldn’t be a issue with this guide. The all romance is a turn-off for some but there will be enough free time by the end to max all confidants don’t worry and enjoy!

    • I have been following this guide up till 7/20. Here it tells me to craft at least one of each infiltration tool. However, you don’t unlock most of the tools until Magician is at rank 6. So this is a big issue to the guide.

  53. Don’t freak out over being a day behind on some things. The guide is so efficient that you’ll be absolutely fine. Afterall, the game is designed so that you’d be spending time slots washing clothes and going to mementos way way more than this guide has you go. All that protein you’re buying is for the endgame when you’ll have nothing left to do because everything will be maxed already. If you don’t rank up with Ann, for example, just replace a Ryuji time slot with Ann and do Ryuji later. Or something like that. The main party members will not become unavailable AFAIK. The important thing is mostly to get Kasumi and the Councillor ranked up.

    • What this guy said exactly. If you’re behind on an encounter, just pick your least favourite party member (Yusuke) and rank them up when you are given free time later in the game. There is no way you will run out of time.

  54. 7/30 fix, save first, bring Ann to Ueno Musuem, pick the right dialogue (+3), and make sure the gift option pops out (Castellas +3), next encounter with her will level max her out, hope this helps.

  55. other fix way around for 7/30… save first… bring Ann to Ueno Museum, pick the right dialogue (i forgot which one) and make sure gift option comes out (Castella, Chocolate Truffles, Uji Matcha Flan), just save scum until you got the right dialogue (+3) and gift option pops out, btw if u gave her the Castella before give her something different this time.

  56. I have a solution for Ann, Takemi, preserving mementos and prisom events. I posted it 4 times now, but the post doesn’t appear. I don t know why…

    It’s a little bit lenghty, you only miss Makoto’s gift from suidobashi (that i suppose i can get in january). How can I post the solution?

    • I dont understand the issue. On july 30th he doesnt interact with the fortune confidant. It stays 0.3 and he progresses her on August.

  57. Welp, I guess I’m lucky I found out this Ann problem early enough (I’m on 6/21). I’ll just stop playing until this gets fixed…

    Hopefully I won’t need to reload a save earlier than mid-june.

    • I would advise you not to delay enjoying this game just because of it.
      Besides there is no fix to wait about. The author has not adressed the issue at all in the comments, and in fact he did the same thing with takemi rank 10.

      I will try a workaround ann later today or tomorrow at max ( I am at 17th of june). I will let you know if it works. There is also a suggested takemi solution on August page but I havent done any research on it as Ann is a more immediate issue.

      • Eh, I’m not that bummed about pausing my run but I understand. Thanks for trying that workaround. Let’s all hope that it works 😀

  58. So I haven’t gotten to the issue with Ann yet – and I’ll probably figure that out when I get to it – but I just have a question. Do I *really* need to farm for over a million yen before I can use the Despair trick on the Reaper (assuming it still works by now)? It’s an awful lot of time to pour into yen farming…

    • All ailments have been nerfed to only last one round, making both the reaper and pulinpa exploit practically useless. Doesn’t matter tho since they changed Ryujis insta kill skill so you can basically spent a few hrs just ramming into low-level shadows with Jose’s money boost and easily get in cash and exp. I watched a stream in the bg and had 2 million yen before I knew it

  59. Some of these rank ups are wrong in this guide, such as the one for knowledge and charm for Lv 4. They don’t happen right away in the days the author lists them to rank up. They actually happen on the next time you do something to increase your knowledge/charm.

    • Not true, all the ranks up have happened on the mentioned dates for me. If they dont happen to someone it means they missed something. Just like a lof of people claim they dont get ranks up with sojiro, kawakami etc. A single mistake or not reading a line can mess you up.

      The only mistakes the guide has are the translations of books/answers (but in the case of the second you can just go with the option numbers). And ofc that he didnt mention at the start of the guide that he would romance multiple characters in order to get rank 10

    • The social stat rank ups have been correct for me except for charm and proficiency (charm because i didn’t go to the bathhouse in April on night to rank up Sojiro as I hadn’t been using a Herio persona, and proficiency for messing up the beef bowl work day). You probably missed something earlier in that messed up the rank up days. The confidant rank ups for the romance options are where issues arise.

    • I wouldnt count on it, he does the same with Takemi on August. The author goes for romance lines in female confidants if it ensures rank 10 earlier

    • Are you really blaming this person for you not getting everything perfect? The people who make these walkthroughs spend hours and hours on their time to help people.

  60. Yo guys I’ve got a sick solution to the Ann relationship thing. Just romance everyone! As we all know, commitment is scary. To rectify this, just don’t commit! Of course, you WILL suffer the consequences come Valentines Day, and you ARE a terrible person, but hey, ya gotta maximize those stat gains doe

  61. Welp, Ann not leveling to 10 at 7/30 in Friendship route sucks. Great Job…
    Worst case 45h down the sink if the “fix” is before 7/16, which is my earliest save i can go back =(

    • The writer of the guide hasnt adressed the issue, Its been days around that,personally I will try to trade it with a twin hangout event.

  62. Hi! I really like this guide, and I’m still planning to use it but… as the others pointed out, Ann didn’t rank up to 10 on 7/30 (I’m going for Kasumi). I thought I could swap the baton pass from 8/15 (Morgana and Yusuke, plus Ann observing) but didn’t work cause I need +2 Lovers instead of +1.

    Does anyones figured it out? I really, really, dont want to start over or do a ng+ route.

    I heard Takemi have the same problem. Mmmm… Swapping 7/30 for Takemi, doing the Baton Pass on 8/15 with Morgana, Yusuke and Ann observing, and waiting till Fall events for the other Lovers Arcana Points could work? I dont know if we can use a fre day in Fall or what… I’m just brainstorming…

  63. For the Ann issue what I did is to order the Nostalgic Steak from 8/18 into one of the nights I was supposed to do a Prison event (but going first to talk to Chihaya to boost Knowledge attribute).
    Then, I moved the flower shop work on 8/9 to 8/18, so I can have 8/9 to spend time with Ann.
    I had also the problems with Takemi and Soujiro described before, but I need to check if the fix works (the date I’m using is 10/15 for Takemi, but I’m still on September, so I’ll have to wait to see the outcome)
    I hope this would help you all.

    • Do we miss something asside of the skill cards if we skip the prison events? Because maybe we can fix Ann’s problem with this and Takemi’s with another prison event.

      I don’t know about Sojiro, is there a problem with him too?

      • In the Prison events we only get those skill cards (which you can get by itemizing, so it really doesn’t care).
        The thing with the prison events is that all of them are at night, which makes Takemi unable to get Maxed by this method. What I’m planning for her is to max her at 10/15 instead of reading the billiard book (IDK how this is going to affect, but I prefer to max her instead of read a book that I can do instead of a prison event). Also, so far I checked in the Guide there’s no more Nostalgic Steak in the near future.
        The Soujiro thing was solved by replacing one of the prison events, but I had to move Mishima, Ohya, Hifumi dates ahead until I got a date that Soujiro was available.

  64. So this guide has gummed up a lot of people it seems. Can anyone who has used it through confirm that it works without A)romancing everyone and b) gives some wiggle room at the end

    im twenty hours in and lost all steam aiming for a 100% run because of these mess-ups. any info would help as i love this game and have been dying to replay it at 100%.

    • Thinking the same. Is ann even worth maxing? Kinda thinking of restarting the game again but with a different guide (or at least use this one but romance everyone)

  65. earlier in the month I missed out on the level up for proficiency and guts, will there be a future date where I can catch up?

  66. earlier in the month I missed out on the level up for proficiency and guts, will there be a future date where I can catch up?

  67. early in the month, I wasn’t able to level up my proficiency and guts will there be a future date where I can catch up?

  68. Is there a fix for the 7/30 issue that doesnt involve having to reset back to 7/8 and romancing her. Cause I don’t want to romance her and I really dont want to sac 2 hours of grinding for the mil. This guide really should have specified you HAVE to romance her.

  69. Okay, I did some shuffling around of a few days, but I managed to get it all working. I’m gonna have to actually do some inheriting rather than card using, but I’m willing to suck it up. So! Here’s the thing;

    7/28 – Deny Akechi’s offer at night
    7/29 – Daytime, Hang out with Ann (just get Tea)
    7/30 – Night, Hang out with Akechi
    7/31 + 8/2 – No change
    8/3 – Night, Hifumi’s 1 > 2 event that you skipped on 7/30.

    • I haven’t played past that part yet, but wouldn’t that effect Ohya’s Confidants once you don’t get the points from the Event with Aketchi?

      • Actually this works well because you get a lot of evening free time in the new third semester based off this guide. Which is when ohya is available

    • Hey there, I have some questions about that solution, first of all whats the alternative for 7/28 evening ? Secondly the day of 29/7 gives points with both justice and devil. There is no way to be able to balance that out with a single interaction. And finally while on 8/3 you balance out the moon confidant, there are 2 days ( 29/7 and 8/3) where you miss out on Justice and caroline. I dont know if there is any reward in the end besides skill cards but I figured I should mention it.

      I am not entirely sure that getting rank 10 with ann this way is worth all those possible future complications. I am trying to test if its possible to do it with the points of school answres later in the fall.

      • For 7/28, order a Nostalgic Steak. That’ll put you on track for a few other changes that need to be made to keep up with no-romance Takemi, which you can see Ren commented about in August page.

  70. Regarding the issue I see all of us are facing : The guide went romance lines for Ann in order to get rank 10 and probably planned the entire guide based on that assumption.I came up with a possible solution and I want to hear opinions, I did some research and found out that there are 2 class questions where you help ann ( and get points with her) on september and november. those 2 events perhaps can provide the amount of points we need. However I dont know what event to use on 7/30 instead.

  71. So is the Ann issue fixed?
    And if im reading correctly you are also romancing takemi – any workarounds?
    You should put a warning at the beginning of the guide tbh.

  72. I can now confirm that the issue with the Ann confident is to do with romancing her, this is also a possibility with the Tae Takemi confident as well. It’s disappointing that this is the issue as I only want to romance Kasumi as I’m sure many others do.

    Also if you’re having issues making Lockpicks do as I did previously and craft other items to get your proficiency.

        • Could we get 7/20 fixed as you don’t get all infiltration tools until 7/25 what I did was I played the video game on the 20th instead and I’m going to try the infiltration tools on 7/25 instead

        • What does it mean by trigger gift giving on the 1/7? I have given Ann the Mentioned gift and tried reloading several times I get the +3 from it, does it mean the unique dialogue from the gift or is it supposed to show an explanation about giving gifts and how they can be used to increase your confidants?

  73. judging from 8/2, I still don’t have enough points to level up Ann to 10. I swear I did everything right and it is really lucky I have a save but I have to grind mementos again….

  74. The guide made a mistake
    nobody can make any of those tools on that day because the possibility to aquiere it come with the next morgana ranks up

    just do another activity from the next days and interchange

  75. Looked back into June, there’s not a listed time for getting the Speed Reading book? It just shows up here, early in the month.

  76. I wish I had read the comments sooner about the Ann situation, just came out of my 1M mementos grind and hit the 30/7 date and she has not enough points for rank 10.

  77. Correct me if I’m wrong, but carrying arcana for yoshida and mishima shouldn’t be needed. In the original, they level up everytime you spend time with them regardless. I know they changed it for akechi, but those 2 should be the same. Which should also mean that affinity readings for mishimia are unnecessary. But again, correct me if I’m wrong with the royal version.

    • I don’t understand what happened, because I’ve been following this guide precisely, but Kawakami didn’t rank up from 4 > 5 the first time. As a result I am now one rank behind on her and the entire guide is out of whack for me. It’s not too big of a deal as I plan to play through multiple times, but still.

  78. Regarding Mementos – if I don’t grind up to 1,000,000 and leave with about 500,000 will that be fine for now? Will just buy the SP Adhesives later.

    • According to other comments the guide followed romance dialogues for takemi and Ann and thats how it reached level 10. I guess we will need to adapt. I am sticking with Kasumi no matter what 🙂

  79. Did not get Ann to Rank 10 Either. I’m pretty sure I followed everything correctly till now regarding her confidant. Mistake in the planning?

    • I’ve now played upto July on two playthroughs because of the Ann confident issue and it turns out that Romancing her is what gets her to Rank 10. So if you aren’t planning to romance her this is not the guide for you.

  80. 7/30 – No rank 10 with Ann. +2 Lovers is lacking for it to become “i feel like my bond with Ann will strengthen soon.”

      • Could we get 7/20 fixed as you don’t get all infiltration tools until 7/25 what I did was I played the video game on the 20th instead and I’m going to try the infiltration tools on 7/25 instead

        • unfortunately you can’t do *all* the infiltration tools on 7/25, because you need 20xAluminum Sheet and 10xLiquid Mercury for the Perma-Pick, and those are definitely materials you don’t have if you’ve been following this guide

  81. PSA: Made changes on 7/30 as of 04/02/2020

    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 still the same

  82. My Proficiency didn’t increase to 4 on 7/6 but on the second viewing of Jail Brake on 7/10. Not sure if this was a mistake or a screw up on my part.
