    INTRO
    +++++
    This is my very first FAQ ever written, so please excuse the plain-ness. 
    I wrote this playing the Japanese version of P3P, so I don't have all of the
     midterm answers in English. If anyone can provide midterm answers for July
    14-17, that would help a lot ::hinthint:: :)

    THINGS TO KNOW

    DATES AND ACTIVITIES
    ---
    I will put the dates of days as MM.DD, so if you’re looking for a particular 
    date, put in 05.03 for May 3 and 07.11 for July 11, and so on. I don’t have 
    the days of the week next to the dates, maybe that’ll come in a future 
    update. 
    
    As for the format, the first line under the date depicts what you should do 
    during the daytime and the line under that shows what you should do at 
    night.  
    
    For example under 04.22 (April 22) it says ‘quiz game’ and then ‘quiz game’ 
    under that. So during the day you should go to the arcade and play the quiz 
    game and to the same at night.  
    
    On days like 04.24 where it says ‘Chariot 1’ and ‘horror game,’ you should
     do the Chariot social link in the day and go to the arcade to do the 
    horror game at night. 
    
    As for the social links, if a day says ‘Chariot 1,’ you should be getting 
    Chariot to rank 1 that day. If a day says ‘Moon 7,’ then you should get 
    Moon to rank 7 that day. 
     
    
    ---
    PICKING SOCIAL LINK ANSWERS
    ---
    Answers for different questions are separated by commas (example, 
    Hierophant 2 says 1, 1, any, 2, any. For the first question, answer with
     the first choice, first choice for second question, any answer for third
     question, etc).  
    
    Some answers will say ‘1 or 2,’ ‘1 or 3,’ or any combination of ‘number or
     number,’ in which case you can choose the first or second response and 
    you’ll still be fine. 
    
    Some days, especially towards the end of the year, will just have ‘-,‘ 
    which means you’re free to do anything during that time. 
    
    You should definitely have a Persona of the same Arcana as the social link
     you’re meeting by the third time you meet them, second rank to be safe. 
    For example, you don’t need a Lovers persona for Lovers 1, but starting 
    from Lovers 2 or 3, you definitely should have a Lovers persona in your 
    party. For some links like Fool and Death that level up automatically, you
     don’t need matching Personas. I’m pretty sure that you don’t need a 
    matching persona for the Sun social link either, but it’s better to be 
    safe than sorry. 
    
    THERE ARE SPECIAL ANSWERS FOR THE LOVER ROUTE. I’m sure I noted the answers,
     but if people play through the game and see something wrong, please let 
    me know.
    
     
    ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE- if you’re going for the lovers route with Justice,
     it’ll happen on the day for Justice 8. However if you do become lovers 
    with Justice on that day, your rank for Justice won’t go up, so push back
     Justice a day and you should be fine. 
    
    ONE MORE THING TO NOTE- I wrote this later in the guide, but for the 
    Fortune link you MUST have a Fortune persona from the first time you meet
     him and for every rank meeting. To be safe, just keep a Fortune persona 
    with you all the time and don't ever dismiss it until Rank 10.

    TSUKARETOREERU
    -----
    Tsukaretoreeru is the romanized name of the item in the Japanese game that
    gets rid of the tired status. In the English version of the game, it's 
    called "Yawn-B-Gone" and it can be bought in the school lobby or with
    Tanaka. At school, you can only buy three per week and it refills on 
    Saturdays.
    
    Huge thanks to E.Klein, J.Mulligan-Lawrence, and WampityWamp for the info :)
     
    
    -----
    SAVING PEOPLE IN TARTAROS
    -----
    Some days in the guide will say ‘save x people.’ Do it, it’s important for
     some social links to continue.
