Ichiko Ohya Confidant Persona 5 Royal Hangout

Ichiko Ohya is the holder of the Devil Arcana and a Confidant in Persona 5 Royal. She is a paparazzi journalist infamous for click-baiting and twisting the truth for attention. She is first introduced on 04/11, seen discussing the psychotic breakdowns with a local police officer. You can begin her Confidant on 06/23 after visiting her at the Crossroads Bar. She is available every evening and can be found in the Crossroads Bar in Shinjuku.

As with most confidants, there isn’t a limit on when you can rank Ohya up. As long as you achieve Rank 10 before reaching an ending you can complete the Devil Confidant. Also, at Rank 9 you have the option to romance Ohya, which changes the dialogue options for the following rank. As an additional motive to rank up Ohya, you’ll earn +3 Charm for most of her ranks.
