Good question. Often those are the best written ones to follow..

From my understanding, there's no "favored" route like Yukari or Aigis from 3 or Marie from Golden.

I think Sojiro mistakenly believes that the protag is dating Ann and then Makoto at separate points. Futaba also gets her own mini-arc in the story after joining the group.

It's not above it, but it's easily the worst part about the fanbase due to how quickly it can turn toxic.

Mild Persona 3 spoilers below:
If I recall correctly I was first dating Yuko, but kinda got caught up in Chihiro's story and then after a while got pretty annoyed with that and just left her alone to complete Yuko's Link. Chihiro got angry and the social link reversed. Later, I was hanging out with Yukari and beginning to romance her. Chihiro gave me a chance to fix things and I tried for a while but still left again, which is when the social link broke completely and I don't think I could get any more bonus experience from fusing Persona's of the Justice arcana.

I like when there are actual consequences for your actions and those you develop relationships with get angry and act like real people.


I think I also reversed the Magician social link.

I would also like to know this.

Who's the most Rise character in 5? Rise's confidence was extremely attractive. I chose Chie but the whole time I thought "Rise tho..." Yu Narukami is a bad dude.

You chose the right girl. Your scenario is like sitting at a steak house and thinking about Burger King.

I like Futaba cuz she's voiced by Aoi Yuuki

but among the party members Makoto hands down get the best animation award.

E.g when she's idle in the midst of the battle and just hopping up and down a couple of times trying to pump herself up for the battle.

I'll probably getting the Shadow Operatives outfit DLC set mainly for Makoto too.

I'm still kinda bummed that the braid part of her hairstyle was actually just a elastic hair band

Wait, is it still April Fool's Day? You're pulling my leg, right?

Chie is perhaps the blandest character in all of Persona-dom, and I've never understood Gaf's interest in her. Also, her head looks like a pumpkin (of course, so does Emil's and I love him, so I guess that in of itself isn't dispositive...).

I wouldn't take opinions here as gospel. Everybody has a different opinion. Plenty of people who also played the japanese release in other forums seem to say Anne's romance is among the more fulfilling romances.

Every social link provides an array of abilities and unlocks that differ depending on the character or if they're a party member.

Just to be sure, you can't romance more than one girl like you "kinda" could in Persona 4 Golden right?

I don't want to accidentally lead someone on and have another extremely heartbreaking Valentine's Day situation all over again.

I'm sorry for having to choose between the two of you Rise and Naoto!!!!

Also, Rise and Naoto are absolute perfection and clearly the best choices in P4G.

The game tells you when you're about to romance someone. Like it did in P4.

Yep, you can. I've already seen the result of harem Valentines so I'll be going with Futaba on first playthough and Tae on second.

But Persona 13 won't have humans as cast. It will feature androids. And since this is a new concept by then, it will only let you date female androids.

Husbandos will be featured in from Persona 7 onward.

This was my exact experience with 4, if you just swap Chie with Naoto. Totally led Rise on, and by Valentine's Day when she ran out of the classroom crying, that's when I knew I fucked up.

Should've gone with Rise.

It didn't really recognise them as much as kinda bring them up and then go "nah lol" and drop the matter entirely.

I'll be honest. I was just skipping through the text when it wasn't a character and I had my mind somewhere else when I skimmed through it. My thought afterwards was that I was getting closer to max my social link. Not a very good reason haha!
