There are 22 characters with social links in P3R. You can establish these links to create an Ultimate Persona with the chosen characters. In this guide, I’ll provide you with social link prerequisites for all characters in Persona 3 Reload, including their set dates and arcanas.

Persona 3 Reload: Social Link Prerequisites for All Characters

I highly recommend using your free time in P3R to establish social links with the characters you like. This lets you start their side stories and unlock the chance to fuse for an Ultimate Persona. Some characters are easy to socialize with, but others require you to complete various tasks before bonding with them.

S.E.E.S. Social Link

  • Date: April 18
  • Arcana: Fool

This social link is available on any day of the story, beginning from the set date without any prerequisites.

Kenji Tomochika Social Link

  • Date: April 22
  • Arcana: Magician

While staying on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, I can meet Kenji in Classroom 2F to learn more about him.

Kazushi Miyamoto Social Link

  • Date: April 23
  • Arcana: Chariot

Similarly, Kazushi is available in Classroom 2F on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. But I also need to join any sports club to be able to do that.

Yuko Nishiwaki Social Link

  • Date: April 24
  • Arcana: Strength

If I manage to walk Yuko home while reaching Ranks 1-2 on the Chariot Arcana social link, then I can meet her on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the hallway on the second floor.

Bunkichi and Mitsuko Kitamura Social Link

  • Date: April 25
  • Arcana: Hierophant

This social link is available on all days from Tuesday to Saturday at Bookworms Used Books in Iwatodai Strip Mall. But it’s important to get the Persimmon leaf from the tree in Corridor 1F.

Hidetoshi Odagiri Social Link

  • Date: April 27
  • Arcana: Emperor

Typically, Hidetoshi is available only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the Student Council Room on the second floor. But if you’ve been able to go past January, then he becomes available on any day of the week. However, you need to become a member of the Student Council first.

Maya Social Link

  • Date: April 29
  • Arcana: Hermit

I feel kind of lucky that I can meet Maya practically every day of the week on holidays or every Sunday. But she’s open to socializing only if I get the Innocent Sin Online game from Junpei and start playing it on my laptop.

Maiko Oohashi Social Link

  • Date: May 6
  • Arcana: Hanged Man

Maiko is a bit more complicated, as she must be treated with the Mad Bull drink from the dorm vending machine and the Weird Takoyaki snack from the Iwatodai Strip Mall. Only then can you speak to her on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at the playground near Naganaki Shrine.

Chihiro Fushimi Social Link

  • Date: May 7
  • Arcana: Justice

If you started the Emperor Arcana social link, then I highly recommend speaking to Chihiro at least three times in the hallway on the second floor. Note that she’s available only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Bebe Social Link

  • Date: May 26
  • Arcana: Temperance

Bebe is extremely picky when it comes to who he speaks to. But if I manage to get the Average mark on Academics Rank 2 and reach at least Rank 3 on the Hierophant Arcana social link, then he’ll be more open to a conversation. This opportunity becomes available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the Home Economics room.

Pharos Social Link

  • Date: June 12
  • Arcana: Death

This social link is available on any day of the story, beginning from the set date without any prerequisites.

Keisuke Hiraga Social Link

  • Date: June 17
  • Arcana: Fortune

Since Keisuke loves art, be sure to join the Art Club and talk to him on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the Art Club room.

Fuuka Yamagishi Social Link

  • Date: June 19
  • Arcana: Priestess

Just like Bebe, Fuuka doesn’t open up to anyone. Here, I need to reach at least the Badass mark on Courage Rank 6 and start the Fortune Arcana social link. Then, Fuuka becomes available on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays in the hallway on the second floor.

Yukari Takeba Social Link

  • Date: July 25
  • Arcana: Lovers

Yukari likes charismatic people, so she demands that her social link is established only at the Charismatic level on Charm Rank 6. Then, she’s available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in Classroom 2F.

Mamoru Hayase Social Link

  • Date: August 2
  • Arcana: Star

First, you must reach Courage Rank 4, so that you can meet Mamoru for the first time at the sports meet on a set date. Then, it’s possible to establish a social link with him at the Iwatodai Strip Mall on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Akinari Kamiki Social Link

  • Date: August 23
  • Arcana: Sun

Due to Akinari’s arrogance, there’s a lot that needs to be done here. First, I need to reach Smart level on Academics Rank 4. Then, I have to establish the Hanged Man Arcana social link. Finally, I need to find the Red Fountain Pen. You can only meet Akinari during the Hanged Man Rank 3 social link. But even then, this opportunity is only available on Sundays at the Naganaki Shrine.

Mitsuru Kirijo Social Link

  • Date: November 21
  • Arcana: Empress

Mitsurur adores intelligent people, so she can be approached only after reaching the Genius level on Academics Rank 6. If that happens, meet her at the entrance to the Faculty Office on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Nyx Annihilation Team Social Link

  • Date: December 31
  • Arcana: Judgement

This social link is available on any day of the story, but you must complete the Fool Arcana social link on the set date.

Aigis Social Link

  • Date: January 8
  • Arcana: Aeon

You can freely speak to Aigis on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in Classroom 2F without any extra measures.

Mutatsu Social Link

  • Date: N/A
  • Arcana: Tower

Mutatsu is a tough character who respects power. So first, I need to reach Rank 4 on the Strength Arcana social link. Then, I have to reach the Tough level on Courage Rank 4. Lastly, I need to talk to Yuko at least once. When that’s done, I can finally meet Mutatsu between Thursdays and Sundays in Club Escapade at Paulownia Mall, but only at night.

Nozomi Suemitsu Social Link

  • Date: N/A
  • Arcana: Moon

Nozomi is another extremely picky character. I suggest starting with reaching an Unpolished level at Charm Rank 2. Then, establish the Magician Arcana social link and wait for Kenji to mention the “Gourmet King” during the social link. It’s also important to take part in and complete the Gourmet Quiz. Lastly, you’ll need to find the Odd Morsel location. But once it’s all done, you can meet Nozomi on any day in the Paulownia Mall.

President Tanaka Social Link

  • Date: N/A
  • Arcana: Devil

Tanaka is a greedy person who requires Smooth level on Charm Rank 4 and at least 40,000 yen before meeting him. Once that’s established, meet Tanaka at night only on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Paulownia Mall.

That’s it for my Persona 3 Reload social link prerequisites for all characters guide. Stay tuned for more P3R tips and tricks articles, including details on merciless difficulty and how to beat Spurious Books.
