  • Kitty Lee

    This was a very informative guide! Thanks.

    • Llama King

      Apparently you get labeled as a cheater if you romance more than one. I’m not that far yet as I’m still on my first play through. However I just stuck with Ann as she’s kinda cute.

    • James

      I’m on NG+, my first playthrough I only romanced one girl and kept it real with Ann but on my new game plus I’ve romanced them all. So far no complications with social links or them getting mad at me, I’m in mid Dec, but I’ve read if you have more than one gf at Valentine’s Day you don’t get to hang out with any of them, just Sojiro, which is hilarious

  • Asusan

    I feel bad letting Haru down 🙁

  • Dammit, I was so close to max rank… but I reached December 24th too soon. I blame the exams!

  • Not Arin Hanson

    On rank 4, I believe offering to cover the bill only nets you +2, not 3.

    • Not Arin Hanson

      I believe it is the same for “Let’s ask him” and “I’m not really sure”.

  • Tayeb Mohammed (The-TReaper)

    Make sure to open rank one after okumora palace so even after you cant go to School in a certain month she will let you in to the roof regardless

  • She’s so sad if you don’t romance her…

  • Olivia Park

    Rank 7 correction: On response 2 “That sounds really tough…” only nets you 2 points while “What do you want to do?” actually nets you 3.

  • novanox

    A lot of hers are wrong. I’ve been noticing a bunch of listed +3 are actually +2. Single answer ones seem right, but even sometimes does are 2 not 3. She likes honest, polite, encouraging.
