Persona 5 Romance Guide - How to Romance Characters Ann, Makoto, Futaba

There's romance in the air in Persona 5, as the player can entice a variety of different characters throughout the game.

In this Persona 5 Romance guide, we'll be walking you through the correct steps to take and answers to choose in order to sway various characters in the game, including Ann, Futaba, Makoto, and more. A Persona 5 Romance can only be initiated once you've built up your Social Link with a character, but we'll cover all that and more throughout the guide below.

It should be noted that you can enter into a Persona 5 romantic relationship with more than one character, but this isn't recommended as it can lead to some pretty bad consequences. Alternatively, you're not forced into a relationship with any character at all, although entering into one slightly alters some conversations.

Should you need any help with other areas of Persona 5, we've got you covered with our main guides hub for the game, covering topics like Confidant Social Links and Mementos.

Persona 5 Romance Guide

Read on to find out how to romance Persona 5 characters, plus get the details on what happens when you try to have multiple romances at once.

How to Romance Ann Takamaki

Ann is one of the characters that you'll start out Persona 5 with, forming the Phantom Thieves alongside her, Ryuji, and Morgana. Ann Takamaki can always be found in the underground section of the Shibuya Mall, both during the day and after school. First, you'll need to rank up her Social Link to Level 9, and after that, make sure to attain rank 2 in Kindness, then later at rank 9 you'll be given a very obvious option to enter into a relationship. The previous conversation choices you pick have no bearing on whether you can enter into a relationship with her or not.

How to Romance Makoto Nijima

Makoto is another character who shows up relatively early in the game. To enter into a relationship with the staunch Makoto, you'll first need to level up her Social Link to level 9 (which in itself can be pretty tricky if you have less charm), and only after this will you be presented with a very clear relationship option with the character. Additionally, she will unlock a certain ability if you initiate the relationship.

How to Romance Futaba Sakura

Futaba's relationship options are another tricky one. First of all, you'll need to attain rank 4 in Kindness, and then level up her Social Link to rank 9. Whenever she texts you to hang out, make sure you do! After completing her Mementos request, you'll be able to get to rank 9 and unlock the conversation option in order to romance her.

How to Romance Haru Okumura

After getting access to Haru's Social link, you will need to get to Rank 7 in her Social Link to unlock the relationship options. Afterwards, it's a pretty simple process to enter into a relationship with Haru, as again, the conversation options unlock at Rank 7.

How to Romance Tae Takemi

The standoffish doctor that you'll find in Yongenjaya is also a relationship option, and you'll have to get your Guts up to Rank 2 in order to progress. After you attain Rank 9 in her Social Link through completing her Mementos request, you will be able to unlock the conversation option to enter into a romantic relationship with her.

How to Romance Sadayo Kawakami

Yes, you can also enter a relationship with your own teacher in Persona 5. Once you unlock Kawakami's social link, you will be able to call her, which will require Rank 3 in Guts. After this, you will be able to unlock her Mementos Request at Rank 8, and then at Rank 9 you will be able to unlock conversation options in order to initiate a relationship.

How to Romance Hifumi Togo

To even initiate Hifumi's social link, you'll have to attain a Rank 3 in Charm, and also fully max out your Knowledge stat. After completing her mementos request, you'll again be able to unlock the conversation options in order to enter into a relationship with the standoffish-genius.

How to Romance Chihaya Mifune

Once you unlock the ability to go to Shinjuku in Persona 5, you will be able to enter into a relationship with Chihaya, but to do this you will need to spend 100,000 yen in order to buy a stone to enter into her Social Link. After that, you'll need to stay on a strict path of conversation options that hint towards romance throughout the Social Link encounters with her. After you complete her Mementos request and get to Social Link Rank 9 with Chihaya, you'll be able to unlock the final conversation option in order to enter a relationship with her.

How to Romance Ichiko Ohya

This preppy journalist that you meet in Shinjuku will be available after you form a Social Link with her, and after this you will need to complete her Mementos Request in order to proceed. After that, you'll need to get to Social Link Rank 9 from there, and then you'll be able to unlock the conversation options in order to enter a relationship with her.

Persona 5 Multiple Romances

Some light spoilers ahead are in this section! Should you choose to live life on the edge and attempt to successfully romance multiple women at once, be warned that this will backfire on you. It's not even a case of if, but when, as if you date multiple women, all your romantic partners will bump into each other on Valentine's Day, leaving you in an awkward situation.

While this doesn't actually impact the ending of Persona 5, and you can get away with romancing multiple women at once for a while, the Valentine's Day event is unavoidable, with the protagonist being left all alone afterwards with no way back. There are a total of eight characters to romance in Persona 5, and it is possible to romance all of them at once.

We have a variety of other guides on Persona 5, including how to understand the Social Link system, as well as how to create powerful Personas for you and your allies. We've also got all the Persona 5 Test Answers in a handy guide.

Now that we've covered every available romantic option in Persona 5, you can seduce characters to your hearts content.
