Ann Confidant Persona 5 Royal Hangout

Ann Takamaki is the holder of the Lovers Arcana as well as both a party member and Confidant in Persona 5 Royal. She is the third-party member being introduced on 04/11. You automatically begin her Confidant as part of the story of 04/15. She is available during the daytime on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday and can be found next to the clothing store in the Underground Mall.

As with most Confidants, there isn’t a limit on when you can rank Ann up. As long as you get to Rank 10 before reaching an ending, you can complete the Lovers Confidant. Also, at Rank 9, you have the option to romance Ann which changes the dialogue options for the following rank.
