Rank 1

How to Unlock: First you will need to go to Shibuya’s Underground Walkway and grab a job pamphlet that becomes available very early on in the campaign. Take the job for Beef Bowl Shop which will be available at night and requires you to remember who ordered what. Yoshida will drop by the Beef Bowl Shop after his speech. After two nights of doing this job, Yoshida will interact with you and give you the ability to help him with his campaign at Station Square.

    I’m pretty sure that Yoshida works like the Death Social Link from 4, in that he will always level up every time (and he tends to be available only on Sundays, just like the Death Social Link, too). At the very least, I’ve yet to find a level at which getting a single point isn’t enough for the next level. It MIGHT be that you need at least one point per level, but I can’t confirm that.

    Got mind control at rank 8 not 9…
