How to Unlock: After completing the second dungeon, you will receive a scene a couple days later with Yuuki and Ryuji regarding a maid call-service. You will be able to do this at night by talking to Yuuki in Shibuya. After this nighttime event, approach Kawakami at school the next day where she’s getting an ear full from Ms. Chouno. Help her out of this situation and she will give you a number to call at night from the phone at the Leblanc Cafe that will begin the Temperance storyline.

  • Tiago Godinho

    Thank you for this guide! Persona 5 really is amazing,

  • NoireSonata

    In Rank 3 Response 1 it only gave me one point even when I had a Temp persona.

  • Wynlorn

    Just a little correction for Kawakami, her Rank 5 ability is “Free Time” and you “Gain free time in other teachers’ classes with Kawakami’s help”. Thanks for the great guide!

  • Emily Peters

    The response 1 rank 3 to “cook real food” is only +1

  • Not Arin Hanson

    “You’re running away” from rank 8 gives 3 points, I believe.

  • Seth Leppy Steenbergen

    So, who else was hot for teacher? ;]

  • Nicolas Warren

    Just as a note, the 8.5 Rank doesn’t unlock until 9/1.

    • Rajvir Daniel Singh

      I got 8.5 on 7/10

    • José Francisco

      You need a class day in order to unlock the event, so you will have to wait untill 9/1 if you are in summer break

  • Rajvir Daniel Singh

    Also the guide doesn’t mention the Memento Quest you have to do to clear 8.5

  • You’re missing the non romance max options. 1-3


    what if you are past to the O palace lol?
