  1. You’re supposed to meet her at night, right? I’ve only met her once and she hasn’t come back to the church since

  2. For 7, both +3 choices according to this only gave +2 (it may come down to luck / I believe in you). I don’t have a corresponding persona but I didnt think thats how this was rated?

  3. okay so i have all stats maxed but i cant talk to hifumi. its keeps saying “a high school girl is playing shoji here”
