  • Check Yo’self

    For Rank 7 I chose “I’m game if you are” and that actually got me a +3. Just throwing that out there.

    • Gillian Seed

      I just read in another article that if you have low Stats (that guts, knowlegde…stats), you will not get the maximum points of affection even with the best answer and having the right persona equiped.

      It makes sense because I also got some +3 for some characters which only shows +2 in this list.

  • Richard Shiflett

    Best Girl has best confidant.

  • Not Arin Hanson

    I got 3 points on rank 4 for saying “that’s adorable”. Sorry if this is annoying, just trying to help make sure the info is 100%.

  • Lori

    I got +3 for rank 1 Makoto’s “youre very well informed”

  • Pedro Henrique Almeida

    Rank 7
    Response 7 I’m game if you are. +*3* **

    • Ryan Lewis

      Still not fixed but took the risk to see her reply and can confirm she gave me +3

  • Pedro Henrique Almeida

    Rank 8
    Response 1 He says that to all his girls. +3 ***

  • Billabo

    Rank 7 “You can figure that out now” gave me +3 with a Priestess persona.

    • Ryan Lewis

      Just played it and it only gave me 2. Also had Priestess persona.

    • WingsStef

      I got some threes too when it said 2 in some cases. How are your knowledge stats? I wonder if that has something to do with the added points?

  • Judge Rhymehold

    Rank 2 response 3 never happened for me. Odd. No points either way so no biggie
