Below is a list of options with their respective point values; the more points, the better. Don’t forget to include a Chariot Arcana Persona in your party when interacting with Rio to receive the maximum bonus points.

Unlock & Rank 1:

Late in April, when you are able to join a sports club, you will meet Rio and begin your link. Whether you choose to play Tennis or Volleyball, you will inevitably meet her. Social Link with Kazushi is the equivalent for the male Protagonist.

This first rank is unlocked automatically once the relationship has been established. At this first stage, conversation choices don’t matter.

Rank 1 > 2:

  • I’ll be fine on my own…
    • “I can’t leave you alone.” +3
    • “Spot me while I do sit-ups?” +3

Rank 2 > 3:

  • Sorry, but I want to be left alone right now.
    • “That ain’t happening.” +3

Rank 3 > 4:

  • Oh, sorry… I ended up loafing around.
    • “You seem to get along with him.” +3
    • “Aren’t you being too nice to him?” +3
  • All that stuff about having never been in a relationship… That’s none of their business.
    • “Don’t let it get to you!” +3
  • Kotone-san… do you have… someone you like?
    • “Nope.” +3

Rank 4 > 5:

At this rank, all options are appropriate and acceptable; you can say anything to Rio and the S-Link will still advance.

Rank 5 > 6:

  • Rio desperately tries to hold back more tears…
    • “Comfort her.” +3
    • “Hug her.” +3
    • “Cheer her up.” +3

Rank 6 > 7:

  • ……
    • “You can do it, Rio.” +3
    • “Your words can change them.” +3
  • Kotone, you know who it is, right? Tell us!
    • “I have no idea.” +3
  • Why don’t we practice?
    • “Yeah, I agree.” +3
    • “Are you sure you’re okay?” +3

Rank 7 > 8:

  • Rio glances towards you, confused.
    • “This is your decision.” +3
    • “We’re here for you if he says no.” +3
  • I’m gonna… go tell him.
      • “That’s the spirit!” +3
      • “It’ll work out for you!” +3

Rank 8 > 9:

  • You’ve really got an eye for details. Seriously, you’re a much better leader than I am.
    • “Thanks.” +3

Rank 9 > 10:

No options are inappropriate for this rank of the Rio social link; regardless of your decision, you will reach the maximum S-Link rank with her.

Phone Calls

  • 5/24 – Don’t you get nervous that someone might see your underwear?
    • “Yeah, sometimes.” +3
  • 6/7 – If she likes him that much, she should just go tell him how she feels.
    • “Good point.” +3
