  1. If you’re missing the guts because the drink isn’t guts based that day, skip going to the jazz bar with Futaba, you can accomplish the same effect (minus getting her skill but whatever) by getting the avail affinity for her with Chihaya and then going to the Shibuya diner and ordering the surprise sando.

    I hope this helps! Later on, if you’re asked to go to the jazz bar with another person, and you feel you don’t need the skill with them, you can take Futaba instead and do the same with Chihaya, avail affinity, to raise their affinity for the one you didn’t take.

  2. There arent enough Guts points listed in the guide to get rank 5 by the required date of 11/6 for Hanged Man Rank 7.5. Fix this awful guide please

    • Instead of reading the 3 parts’s Books u could play the video game that gives u +2 guts 2 times to reach the rank5 bcz u don’t need reading those books u already maxed them

  3. I find this whole monthly guide more of what to aim for. It feels almost impossible to keep up with throughout the whole game and kind of takes the enjoyment out of the game making it just stressful as you’ll eventually be very behind. So using it to keep track of what you need is the best otherwise its gonna suck.

  4. On 10/6 you have the option to read a book or make infiltration tools. I use this free time to read the book what unlock shinagawa aquarium.

    • I made the same question to myself. You cant for this reason:
      Akechi is more experienced at darts than the others. Instead of 301 you play 701 with him. He also ALWAYS scores bullseye. So you dont “encourage him” like you did the rest. In fact it is you who must keep up and score 401 points in 3 rounds. If you succeed you get 1 rank with him.

  5. Should I skip the billard event on 10/2 to catch up? I am one event behind with Yusuke and I should also still work in the Flower shop..

  6. There is an error for 10/9, the drink does not give me Guts but kindness or charm, this did not make me burn Guts on 11/1.

    • This only happens if you missed one of the previous drinks.
      You should get a kindness/charm/knowledge etc drink even if you have it maxed in order to keep the rotation going. Otherwise the same drink will show up again next week until you buy it.

      • This is ridiculous, because the guide says you can skip a drink if you don’t need that stat… So the creator doesn’t know about this either

  7. I see that lots of people is complaining about the juicies not giving the stat indicated.

    The game works this way: there is a cycle for giving all 5 stats every time you BUY the juice. If you don’t buy the Charm one, next week will be Charm again, and again, etc. You have to keep buying juicies until you max out ALL of the social stats, and buy them even if you already max out the stat of the present sunday one, in order to get another different stat the next week.

    • I did as the guide in fact, I always went to drink the juice, but that day 10/9 did not give me the juice I wanted, and for this I cannot burn Guts on 11/1.

      • I’m not saying to follow what guide, what I want to point is that you should buy the juice every Sunday, even if the guide don’t tells it.

        I got the Guts juice on 10/9. In fact I maxed out the Guts stat (and the whole star stats) that day because using the Chihaya fortune reading.

        In order to get the Guts maxed out before the 11/1, try to do the read fortune everytime you’re going to do an activity related to Guts.

  8. Hi, I’m on day 10/29, instead of doing that frustrating mini game to improve courage, can I go and have a burger sandwich?

    • You are spamming this in every page and you even have it as a username.
      What is even your point ? You no longer pay for the rental period like persona 5.
      The guide doesnt ask you to watch another dvd ( so far). There are literally 0 effects from having the said dvd on your possesion. Why are you going all over the place complaining about it and saying its a mistake ? It would only be one if the guide suddedly told you to watch ” name” dvd and you still had doctor mouse. Which it doesnt.

  9. FINALLY just did it, I hope no one has Trash luck like me on 10/5 darts getting ryuji… So ignore my previous post.

      • Everytime i see darts come up I get so triggered lol. Like everytime I feel I’m restarting over 10 times trying to get the right person. Its almost not worth it.

  10. Ok someone please help. On 10/5 evening darts I can NOT get ryuji to ask to play as the second player. I have been trying for LITERALLY Over 3 Hours, the times he is in the group he wont ask to play, the other extra person does… he always stands at the left… I am getting so fed up I’m about to drop the game altogether. Over 3 hours of this is insanity, the quickest way to reload being quiting the game and booting it back up does not help… Anyone have any advice as to why this is happening, Please help.

  11. 10/30 – You’re only going to be able to get the first two Will Seeds, the Blue one is unreachable until you’re able to unlock the final part of the Palace.

  12. Can someone explain how the inputs work for the Power Intuition game on 10/29? Obviously you press the D-Pad, but the Inputs don’t stay highlighted. I really don’t understand.

  13. Last update. A little over 3 hours of casino exp grinding yielded me 48-70 for every party member. Was mostly waiting on Akechi since he’s the lowest. A few others are 71, Futaba is 73. I got around 3M yen, and also 99 tin clasp, condenser lens, and tanned leather. I know I didn’t need to do it but I thought why not since I wouldn’t be able to return to the casino.

  14. It’s time again. Update on the casino exp grind. Around 3800-4200 exp every time I clear the two enemies. At around 12-15 seconds to clear them, and reset the room I’m getting about 15200 exp per minute. Assuming I reset 4 times a minute which is easy. That’s an easy 60k+ exp every 5 minutes. Only choosing skills when I level is slowing me down. Not sure how fast reaper exp is but this is really good. Going to do this till everyone is 70. Goes by quickly.

  15. Quick leveling tip. When you first walk into the slot room (the one with the giant slot machine in the middle) there’s two waitresses that you can run into and take out for around 2100 and 1700 exp. leave the room, rinse and repeat. Got from 48-60+ in 30-40 mins.

  16. 10/6; you can do stuff before going to bed. I suggest you craft a perma-pick (eternal lockpick) and some other tools if you were lucky enough to get the ressources (notably liquid mercury 10x) at the palace run before.

  17. 10/2, after the billiard session the guide states: “Technical Damage Rank Up: 0 → 1”. This didn’t came up for me even after several reloads. What am I missing? Or is this just bullocks?

    • From what I understand from a quick google search is you need to do this, then buy and read book, then do this again for the technical damage to go up.

      • Also, the stat gain is random, like the game says. You might get Guts, or you might not. Anyone following this guide should probably reload their save if they don’t get Guts, since that’s the only 4/5 social stat at this point.

  18. Why are we still reading books for stats that are already maxed like in 10/5 morning during school? Is there some kind of check or completion regarding reading all books or something?

    • The Thieves Den has an award for reading 40 books. But if you don’t care about that then you can just ignore when told to read books.

      • Not fully true as far as I’m aware as some future books from Jinbocho do more than improve social stats but you can’t buy them unless you’ve read some of therir other stock, not sure on exact numbers though but it is a thing I fell behind on when I thought this too.

  19. What is the reason for leveling joker to 60 inside Sae’s palace? It seems like it will be rather tedious given the average shadow level.

    • I agree with Alex’s comment I think it’s a little bit overkill, considering she is only level 53, my team is in its early level 50 and most of them already have their team-wide buffs.

      • I thought it was for doing the last persona requests for the twins since he had us reach a certain level in the past to complete the request, but honestly you could just pay Igor to make a persona higher than your level

  20. You don’t need to use sooty armor if you don’t want to. You can buy from Iwai, just make sure you have a comfortable amount of money (I usually start buying his stuff when I have 1,000,00 because I’m paranoid)

      • Indeed the guide has a lot of good parts and it has strategy but overally there are many mistakes that cannot be explained. Author has stopped reading the previous months as well.

      • The drinks are not on a cycle until you buy iy. You need to buy pervious drinks in order to get the next drink. So if you miss one, then it will stay on the same one until you buy it… No matter how many weeks pass

  21. Did the guide maker know before hand that you don’t need a matching arcana persona for Mishima or Yoshida? Its good otherwise.

  22. well going by the guide for those who are waiting for an update, 10/2 afternoon looks to be completely free in the afternoon, so I’m assuming were going into palace that day.

  23. Hello, just checking up on when this will be updated?
    Keep up the good work the walkthrough has been perfect for me 🙂
