  1. Please take out all of the “Don’t buy silk yarn etc” messages when you instruct people to ‘if they already have enough’ because it’s made me reset so many times when you later don’t mention going to the shop or don’t include any time going to mementos this early or spread out palace visits to collect them frequently

  2. Warning for anybody reading this: you’re forced to romance Ann and Takemi if you want to keep this guide 100%. It doesn’t mention that, but it’s the way it works. There’s work around for the next months comment sections for friendship for both, but please be aware of this! I lost around 13 hours of gameplay having to go back. Thankfully I know from experience now but Jesus that’s a huge mistake.

    • wait really?, what do you miss if you don’t get them I did friendship with talemi and I havent done Ann’s yet and I don’t have a fucking save for it

    • wait really?, what do you miss if you don’t get them I did friendship with talemi and I havent done Ann’s yet and I don’t have a fucking save for it

  3. 6/6
    Speak to Kawakami
    Look for her at Shujin Academy 3/F
    Interrupt the conversation between her and Chouno is wrong she is on the second floor not third that KS for the thirty minutes of madness btw 🙂

  4. 6/25 is impossible. If you meet with Yusuke, then time moves, thus you can no longer spend time with Makoto. This needs fixing.

    • I think it’s a miss translation. I took it as asking him to craft the frei skill card rather than actually furthering his confidant rank which you do later on. I must admit it had me for a second. He seems to have levelled up fine.

  5. This guide is really inconsistent with the answers it gives in the guide vs the answers in the game. it’s really frustrating having to switch between guides just to get the right answers instead of having to guess what the right answer is from the poorly written guide. as well as not giving information as when you need and how many materials you need for crafting. I had to reload old saves like 5 times because I burned through materials so quickly and with no warning that I would need 8 of each lockpick material in two days with no opportunity to buy them. So dumb please fix this guide as to not confuse new AND returning players.

  6. On 6/22 After School, can you really play Darts with Ann AND Makoto? I re-loaded like 10+ times and the random partner is always either Yusuke or Ryuji, getting tired of it tbh

  7. For anyone like me who can’t figure out on 6/22 how to get the books they list, it’s SHINJUKU not SHIBUYA. This guy has some really bad names for things and some wonky missing recommendations but this is not one of them.

  8. Why in the absolute hell would you put Kasumi’s name in quotes? This guide explicitly says there are no story spoilers and yet you spoil that Kasumi is apparently not her real name because it’s the only confidant you do that with. Just… why? You might as well write a spoiler free review of Fight Club and say that the narrator meets “Tyler Durden”. What the hell.

    • well, i didn’t know that until you pointed it out just now so. thanks for the spoiler.

      yeah, i noticed the quotes, but i wasn’t losing sleep over it.

      • Is there any specific reason why you have to buy all the moist protein? I’d rather just use healing spells to heal rather than use up all my money

  9. I was following the guide from the start and I didn’t rank up with Kasumi even with a faith persona on 6/29. Is there an alternate way to go about it going forward or did I miss my 100% run?

  10. Man, the heck with the day for 6/20-6/21.
    That’s too brutal, because it rely on RNG too much.
    Most people will ended up reloading the game too much, instead playing the games.

  11. I can’t get Priestess +1 from Darts on 6/22, I resetted more than 4 Times it is easy for me to get Ann and Makoto by choosing Makoto first Ann is most likely the random pick you will get. But I can’t figure out how it would be possible to get Priestess +1 if you don’t have the confidant? Can someone confirm that they got the normal note over Makotos head?

        • Does someone know if this Priestess +1 is important? I resetted at least 6 times with Ann and Makoto but I could not get it. I tried with Priestess Pesona and with Ann as picked and Makoto as random but nothing..

          • Its not important to get priestess,your only doing it to get the Baton pass to level 3 for both Ann and makoto for the fight with kamashiro since its recommending for you to go with joker Mona panther and queen.

    • At the end of the game you get +1 from anyone you got 4th round and picked the right answer. Also +1 from the random you didn’t play with.

  12. I have followed this guide to the letter but still didn’t get my kindness rank up reading the book on 6/3. Will this have any implications in the future?

  13. I met Ann on 6/4 initially. However i chose the wrong option and chose to reload. However when i went back, Ann wasnt there?

  14. Great guide!

    I found a couple of errors in it though.
    1)The “playing the game” book is actually renamed in P5R to “The Art of Charm”, this is incorrect on the early morning 6/15.
    2)Also 6/15 in the morning section states “Classroom Question (Knowledge +1) Option #2: “A Coin”, this is incorrect. It actually occurs in the afternoon on 6/15.

    • The only thing worrying me is the lack of trips to mementos. I’m wanting to fight the reaper as i’m on ng+ and have more free time, but the guide hasn’t sent me to mementos once yet since the mission were you have to go to mementos

    • While this is true ( happened to me as well) it doesnt matter at all. Their confidant ranks up only though the persona requests.

  15. The RNG on 6/20-6/21 is sort of brutal, have to be honest. I reloaded about 9 times to finally get them both, and I would even say that’s on the luckier side; I can only imagine how long it took others. If there’s any way to not rely on two random events one after the other, it’d be nice to know…

    However, thanks for the rest of the guide! I wanted to go perfect for P5R after just winging P5, so I’m having an alright time, save for the RNG.

  16. Hey I’ve been following your guide and it’s been working out so far, only problem is I messed up with ranking up soliton early on as I forgot to bring a hierophant persona with me one time, is there still a chance I can max his confidant ranking?

  17. My knowledge doesn’t rank up on 6/5. I’ve done everything in the guide. There was an issue with one of the drinks not being knowledge during May. Any way I can catch up?

    • You’re probabl few points off. Maybe you missed drinking a knowledge drink? Cuz the drinks scheduling is not according to this guide in my gameplay

  18. 6/22 – I was confused about this at first, you should add more details. The odds of getting Makoto and Ann are sort of low, but I got it on my second try.

    You can get +3 proficiency if you do well. I got a Low Ton in the first round with Makoto and a Triple 60 (Hi 20, I think?) with Ann, and it gave me +2 and then +1.

    • On 6/25-6/26 it says to spend time with both Yusuke and Makato in the afternoon but time passes after you spend time with one. Am I missing something? Should I prioritize one over the other? Halp! 😛

  19. Remove the “Don’t buy if you already have 3 of each crafting materials” because this ended with me not actually having enough materials to craft the required amount of lockpicks stated in this guide.

    • Yes! You are supposed to have three crafting sessions, one for 3 lockpicks and two for 4 lockpicks, so you’d need 11 of each! I messed up because of that, hopefully it’s not catastrophic…

  20. In your all’s opinion do you all think it’s possible to still max out kasumi if I messed up one of her interactions and screwed up 6/29 because i messed up the previous convo? I kept having to reload that day because of the rng which was incredibly irritating and I didn’t even realize i messed it up until the next kasumi event thing.

  21. Suggest making a similar guide that didn’t really rely on the damn RNG for crafting. Reloading the same save 20 times to get one extra point because it fails all the time (even making one tool at a time) is frustrating.

  22. The guide works flawless so far. People with problems probably picked a wrong answer or did not equip a matching persona. The game is also not really hard to max out without a guide, so if you screwed up just play the game.

    • No it really doesn’t, the guide is for the Japanese version of the game and there are clearly changes between the versions because the books have different names and there is time wasted at some points in the guide.

      The reloading is messed up too, at one point you have to get a perfect craft and dodge chalk in a single throw.

      Best to ignore whichever confidants in this guide that you aren’t interested in and focus on the stuff that matters to you.

      It tells you not to buy crafting materials for lock picks if you already have them, then it tells you to craft when you don’t have any materials. At one point it tells you IMPORTANT: make sure you have 200k how are you supposed to have 200k when you are saving all the mementos missions for later?

      Many of the other guides are the same though because they just copy info from each other.

      • Making money in this game is a real joke, I have 750k yen right now in Kaneshiro’s palace. Just abuse hold up and ask for money and you will be rich before you know it!

      • I haven’t done any Mementos yet, have followed the guide pretty faithfully, and have 345,000 yen well before it tells me I need 200,000.

  23. at 6/7 the guide says meet Ann for a level up. It’s impossibile. I saw others posts like this. 2 levels are a big mistake…any solution?

  24. there is a big mistake about Ann: from April to May the guide change the confidant level from 2 to 3 without reasons. Now I am at 4 with her (for the guide must be 5), and at 6/4 the guide says “spend time with Ann” but it’s impossible…some help???

  25. Hi, I have been following your guide but think I messed up with Ryuji, I only have him at confidant 6 not 7. Is there anytime where I can to catch up?
    Pretty sure I made too much coffee with Sojiro.

  26. the autoplay function in this site made me filter every single ads and media in it. good thing it’s still readable in text only format. i miss those text only guides in gamefaqs, these autoplay videos can die in a ditch with the developers who implement them.

  27. Found a trick to almost guarantee getting 3 points when making items (i.e lock picks). The guide says to do them all at once but do them individually instead. It will increase your chances of getting extra note by the chances you have. Only one needs to succeed.

  28. Movie maniac is actually called the craft of cinema. Most books that day have different names. Also, should put a note to buy more supplies for crafting for a few days before the 2 lockpicking crafting.

  29. Why do you put “Kasumi” in quotation marks? No other confidant has that. I don’t know at all yet, but this clearly indicates that it is not her real name. I really hope that turns out not to be the case, because if it is true, you spoiled it for me. I suggest removing the quotations.

    • After a bit of Googling … Samurai, you should DEFINITELY REMOVE THE QUOTATIONS AROUND KASUMIS NAME.

      Also, don’t Google this if you care about spoilers.

  30. Shoot. I just spaced out and said the wrong thing to Ann twice and missed out on +4 Lovers points. And I haven’t saved in an hour. How much do those individual Lovers points matter? Should I reload my save?

    • twins event most likely to be extra content, it’s fun but really not needed, you’ll get skill cards that helps though. but the twins arcana solely relies on persona making

  31. If you can’t craft lockpics just craft 4 smokebombs, it will also have the extra smokebomb for the extra point in proficiency.

  32. hey, at 6/19 you tell us to craft 5 lockpicks, but you haven’t warned us before to get ingredients! you even told us at 6/8 to not get any more! Now the game is probably ruined for me as you tell us to do everything as soon as we barely level up the attribute! There is no way to buy it now!

  33. I haven’t seen anyone else mention this, but every time I’ve gone to the discount store in shibuya on the specified days, I’ve never seen moist protein for sale. It’s always just the normal kind.

  34. I’m on 6/7 and I’m 2 levels behind for Ann on this guide for Ann because she isn’t around on the dates given, I started using this guide in mid May and Ann is the only confidant I’m having this issue with… any way to get the dates back on track?

  35. I wasn’t able to rank up Takuto to 5 on 6/6, is that going to affect my run? I know it says he autos on 9/20 but I’m not sure if I messed up…

  36. Kasumi’s confidant won’t rank up on the 29th. Any explanation? Pretty sure I had Phoenix and picked all the right options to rank up to 2.

  37. The guide tells you to make 4 lockpicks twice in a row, unfortunately many players will not have the materials, so i advise putting a warning at the beginning of the month for this requirement, and for those with extra lockpicks due to savedata/dlc bonuses i recommend making the calming aroma instead to reduce material costs.I have unfortunately not discovered a solution to the sojiro rank so i advise replacing a twins event with it.

    • 2-3 3-4 require you to make coffee before hand and then spend time with him. I replaced the reading of the book the evening before with making coffee and got the rank up just fine. Books can be caught up on once you unlock the skill to read them in one sitting.

  38. Hi,
    Is it possible to skip the crafting of lockpick in order to catch up on a confidant?
    I mean, is all the stuff in locked chest required ? Thx

    • It is not necessarily for the lockpicks (though they are a plus) but more so for the proficiency +3 points. Certain stat levels are needed to progress or even start some confidants. Proficiency afaik isnt needed for anyone but higher prof helps you in luck-based stat events like chalk throwing to get charm. I needed an event to level up Sojiro so as somebody suggested I used one of the twins’ events that gives you cards

  39. This guide says to rank up Kawakami from level 2 to level 3 on Friday 6/17. The game won’t let me rank her up on that day.

  40. Is there a typo on 6/3 for Ann’s Confidant? With a lovers persona I am only receiving 2 points on response 3, option 1 (“It had grace”).

      • Maybe there shouldn’t be a wall of text explaining where to get 500 SP items for the 2000th time and then sneak in a vital Speak to this NPC right now in the pile I’ve started to ignore this late into the guide jfc

  41. About 6/22. Can you even get a Priestess +1 point when you haven’t unlocked her confidant? I’ve tried doing it multiple times with Ann/Makoto, Makoto/Ryuji and even Makoto only, just to check. I never got +1 with Priestess but got +1 with the rest.
    Also, you can get +3 on Proficiency if you not only hit a hat-trick but all of your darts are inside the innermost circle (There are 2 circles for bulls-eye).

    • And it’s not that you can get only any 3 out of the 4 mentioned +1 points with confidants. I tried the same with the group of Ann, Ryuji, Yusuke and Morgana and each of them got a +1, because I’d already unlocked their confidant routes.

    • As of 4/26, I saw the little musical note above Makoto’s head when I played Darts. I called Makoto and Ann was an RNG partner for me (after about 3 resets), so it is possible to get the Priestess +1.

    • The extra proficiency can also be gained with Three in a Bed (I did Three Triple 20s to get both Hi Ton and Three in a Bed at the same time).

  42. Sorry if I’m commenting about this again, just not seeing my post anywhere..
    Does the foreign protein stock again on Mondays? I’m on 6/12 and if it does I should have enough time to trade it with the shady guy in Kichijoji.

  43. About the foreign protein – I just noticed the mistake while scrolling through these comments, and I wondered if they restock every Monday?
    I hope they do, since I’m on the 12th (Sunday) which should be just enough time to purchase it and still trade with that shady guy in Kichijoji.

  44. The Guide states this on 6/6 Monday:
    “Speak to Kawakami
    Look for her at Shujin Academy 3/F
    Interrupt the conversation between her and Chouno”

    However she is actually on the second floor (2/f)

  45. For the Wednesday 6/8 morning classroom question, the option #3 is correct but the answer is “controlling public thought”.

  46. I’m on 6/22 and i cannot for the life of me get Makoto or Ann as a random partner, despite multiple reloads and mixing it up choosing either one each reload. It’s always ends up being Ryuji or Yusuke as the random partner. Is the guide incorrect on that part or is it possible?

    • It’s possible – it took me forever too, and I even made a post about it below. You also can’t tell who’s going to be your partner until you play through the first round. Where they’re standing doesn’t matter, so don’t make the same mistake as me.

  47. Some minor notes:

    I ran out of lockpick crafting supplies after crafting on 6/19 as there was no warning I’d be needing 8 of both items. This section also has back to back metaverse excursions so you don’t have an opportunity to go shopping. There ought to be a step on 6/18 to purchase more. I compensated by crafting other items instead since I had sufficient lockpicks already.

    Next, I also followed the guide explicitly and did not get the Sojiro event on 6/3. Instead I swapped out the first Twins event on 6/6. This may have long term implications, but it is very possible – as others have described – that there are hidden point values in previous steps (e.g., making coffee/cleaning the shop) that are not readily visible.

    • You get points with Sojiro when making coffee and cleanign the shop like you said, its not a hidden value, you get to see a +1 note above his head everytime. The author suggested to do those 2 multiple times and I got the event on 6/3 normally. Its also worth saying I didnt always have a hierophant persona when I done them.It only counts during confidant events

  48. I been doing all the guide says and it is 99% accurate, do not know why so many people have problems, I wonder if it is because they do not have the persona required to get the extra points, the only 2 inconvenients are translation problems and the need to read all palace info to ensure you get everything

    • Indeed, the only false info is the date of the Imported protein ( its 6/6 instead of 6/4). Everything else is correct minus the translation which is to be expected since english version is only 6 days old. I believe sometimes they either forget the persona or miss a small step ( like a crossword) and thats why problems come up. I dont know if the problem with ann rank 10 is true though, I read that the guide goes for romance in order to get more points and does the same with takemi, and that will be a problem if true.

  49. On 6/22 do you NEED to get Baton Pass rank 3 for both Ann and Makoto, or do you just need the +1 for both of them? I reloaded for about 30 minutes and was never able to play with both of them, which given that it’s a 33% chance to random the one I “need”, makes it feel like it might not be a possible combination. I tried manually inviting both, and never got it – but I was able to get the +1 on both of them.

    • Nvm, on my last attempt I actually got them both – I thought it was possible to tell who was gonna be your partner based on where they stood, it isn’t. You have to actually play through your first partners game to find out who your second is.

      • So just to clarify ( I am a week behind that event so I need to know what to do ) all it takes is to play 1 round with both of them present?

  50. Man, this guide is hilarious. I should have just used the gamefaqs one instead.

    It is impossible to get proficiency +2 on 6/22. Did you guys not even play test this before uploading it?

    • If you check the guide at gamefaqs, it says answering questions at class/tv shows/ croswords give +2 Knowledge. Interacting with sun confidant says +3 charm.
      Bathhouse at early june says charm +3 guts +2 ( while its +2 and +1 ) .Study at lebland +5 knowledge.
      These are just random reads from june part alone. Every single one of their numbers are wrong. And a guide supposedly is counting to calculate for the future.They obviously dont. Whats more all the pages are lastly updated on early march and havent been touched since. Here at least the editor updates the guides, corrects mistakes and reads the comment section ( and replying). Gamefaqs just left them at stage 1 and moved on to who knows what.
      Both have their flaws, pick your poison. I havent encountered a single issue up to 15/6 for what its worth

      • I’m sure this is the perfect way to go through the game, but the dart throwing on june 22 is just ridiculous. Reload two dozen times until you luck onto the exact 2 partners you need AND don’t mess up the darts for the 2 proficiency? Completely insane imo. The save scrubbing for picks and chalk dodging was getting annoying but at this rate this guide is straight up not fun to follow.

      • Cant level up sojiro on 6/3. Am i missing something ? I always bring a hierophant persona when i talk to him and didnt miss this guide. What am i supposed to do ?

    • It’s not – you need to get a hat trick, or do one of the other challenges. It even mentions after you get it that if you get a hat trick it’ll give you an additional point.

  51. Can’t rank up Sojiro on 6/3. Is it possible to do it later without messing up anything serious. I have seen some people comment that they were also unable to do so. Has anyone actually ranked up Sojiro on 6/3. If so, then I’d need to go back all the way to April.

    • Greetings, I can confirm that I have. I think its important to have done all the coffee brewing at nights. There are at least 2-3 times the guide tells you to do it between ranks.It gives Sojiro points on top of kindness. Are you 100% you didnt miss a day ? I remeber I almost missed one because I had to talk to the customers in order to leave firsts.

      • Hi. I’m sure I didn’t miss a single day. I actually botched up my first playthrough of the original P5 back in 2017, so I made sure to follow this guide faithfully. Any chance I could rank up Sojiro later, cuz now I lack 2pts for Kindness as well. I have progressed a little beyond 6/5 hoping to find an opportunity in the future, but if it isn’t possible to rank him to max in the future now, please tell me. Then I’d have no other choice but to start from 4/23.
        One thing I’d like to mention is that my knowledge didn’t rank up to 3 on 6/5 a first. I then reloaded my save and then it ranked up. I thought it would be the same for Sojiro as well, but didn’t work.

        • Either you’re a fucking liar, or this is a huge oversight in a game that makes me no longer trust the game itself.

          How the hell do you reload a save, do nothing different than you did before, and all of a sudden your Knowledge rank goes up to 3 when it didn’t before?

          And you don’t explain shit about it.

    • im 90% sure whats causing it is that when you brew you have a chance for +2 instead of +1(just like with lockpicks and prof). Its also the extra one could have come from cleaning the bathrooms. I figure 1 of them has to have a chance b/c I was 1 note off the next rank. What I did to get around this was Clean the bathroom you could also brew but I wanted kindness, and then spending time with him on one of the slots thats listed as a prison part since the skill cards are meh.

    • I ranked up Sojiro just fine on 6/3. You probably didn’t have a Hiero. Persona on one of the days you spent time with hum beforehand

  52. Hi. I couldn’t rank up Sojiro on 6/3 and I had the Heiro persona. Any chance you can do it later, swap something out to do it, without causing any setbacks?

      • I don’t think it’s possible to rank up Kasumi on 6/29. I’ve been using Phoenix and I’ve chosen all the right answers. I was reading the other comments and there’s a good chunk of people who can’t rank her up either.

  53. Many people are having issues with 5/1 Flower shop job. I believe it is not possible this date, even checking the “network everyone’s activity log” and didn’t see anyone work at flower shop. Please check out gamefaqs guide for the alternative working at the convenience store for charm +3. The gamefaqs guide start the flower job on June 22.

    Note that I am not stating that the gamefaqs guide is better. I have both guides open due to the flower shop issue. There are stuff that samura-gamers guide have that gamefaqs doesn’t.

    To whomever wrote this guide, please adjust for 5/1. There is a flaw here.

    • I think there is a missing variable somewhere, I followed the guide and I was able to work there normally. However I saw a lot of people saying they couldnt.

  54. I forgot to buy the materials for lock picks at 6/19 (maybe put a reminder), can i just make 4 of something else that day and 6/20 for the proficiency levels? I have 9 lock picks so I don’t think I need them for the palace

    • I was wandering, you write that on 6/22 we should decline the invite and send the calling card instead but you fight shadow kaneshiro on 6/24 logically when you send the calling card you deal with the boss the following day or am i misunderstanding something?

  55. on 6/8 I couldnt get my proficiency rank to 3.
    Following the guide to the letter so far, not sure what i did wrong with proficiency so far but i guess it will rank up on the sunday with the proficient drinking.
    I hope it doesnt mess up too much.

  56. On 6/29 for some reason i’m not ranking up with Kasumi, not sure why as i’m pretty sure I’ve hit every point with her.

  57. On 6/15 it says to read the book “playing the game” but it hasn’t been mentioned how to obtain this. It isn’t available in the Shibuya bookstore yet.

    • On 6/3 my kindness didn’t rank up. Will I be able to catch up with my confidants and stats to max them out still?

  58. 6/22 That day is cloudy and when playing darts you only get +1 not Proficiency +2 since it’s not raining. Update that part guide unless I’m mistaken.

    • You have to get a “Hat Trick” (3 Bullseyes) or “Hi Ton” (more than 151 in round) challenge to get Proficiency +2

  59. Hey guys – just want to say thanks for the guide so far, been very helpful! Is there anything that could be switched round to avoid the double reset at 6/20-6/21? If not sure yet it’s a possible improvement for potential guide updates. Cheers.

    • If my memory serves me right you had to brew a coffee with him once and spend time with him after to get the rank up event. It was like that for 2-3/3-4, could still be in Royal, but I’m 100%

  60. Bit gross to have a double reset point where making tools is followed by chalk in the morning. Even if the tools go well you can still get hit by the chalk. I dunno the more I follow this guide the less efficient it actually feels. I have like 17 lockpicks now. There’s so many times where you’re doing social stat stuff when a confidant is available, even Kawakami is extremely delayed who gives exceptional free time.

    • Understand your sentiments, Scott.

      In later months, we won’t spend too much on lockpick creation. Once we’re done with the second edition walkthroughs, we will check and see what needs to be improved overall.

  61. You said to return ICU to the DVD shop on 6/22 but said to rent wraith before they both give kindness anyway. Should check on some of the names as well as a lot are different from what you call them in this guide. Good work otherwise

    • Thanks for pointing this out and that section is corrected now. For clarification:

      5/29 – Rent Wraith
      5/30 – watch Wraith Part 1
      6/1 – watch Wraith Part 1
      6/22 – Return Wraith

        • Sorry I can’t remember the exact date but it becomes available a few days later than the guide says, it’ll appear as “Imported Protein” and can be gained before you need to trade it in.

    • On 6/15 it says to read the book “Playing the game” on the train to school but doesn’t say when/where we were meant to buy it. It isn’t available in the Shibuya bookstore

      • “Playing the game” seems to be a translation of the version they were playing, in the English release, it’s called ” The Art of Charm”

  62. Hi!
    At 6/13, the Book got renamed in P5R to “The Art of Charm”
    Maybe it’s a bit confusing when you search it at the Bookstore.

    Thank you guys for the hard work!
