Shinya is an elementary school boy who is dubbed as the boy genius player, representing the Tower Arcana. He takes pride in his ability to win in a certain online shooting game. Often times, he plays in an arcade in Akihabara. However, he seems to long for the power of the Phantom Thieves. He did meet the protagonist however at one point. The protagonist met Shinya in an arcade and they play a shooting video game where Shinya was able to easily beat the protagonist.

On 9/4, shortly after Akihabara opens, Mishima should send a text for a mission. Visit the Game Center in Shibuya and talk to the NPCs there with text. From there, ask about the cheater. In doing so, you’ll trigger the chance of talking to Shinya Oda.

The Tower confidant allows you to expand your ammo limit and down enemies using a gun.

Hey, on R3 it’s says 2nd choice but it’s actually the 4th choice.


For rank 5, the last option “you need a new strategy” gives +3


Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your blog. You have some really good articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an email if interested. Many thanks!


3th rank , 3rd choice “Let’s save her.” will give +3


8th rank sorry


5th rank , 3rd choice ” you need a new strategy” will give +3


From rank 4 and onwards they are wrong and don’t even make sense….
