Rank 4

Ryuji: But for some reason, it don’t look like he’s gettin’ along with the others.

Best Response: +2. Are you worried about him?

Ryuji: It’s good they’re keepin’ their heads low now though. I don’t want ’em endin’ up like me.

Best Response: +3. But you’re doing great./I know how you feel.

After achieving Rank 4, you get some time off. Ryuji’s Rank 5 event is only available on and after May 6. In the meantime, maybe focus on some other Confidant.

Best Response: +3. Protein powder?

Ryuji: …Good for them.

Best Response: +2. You seem conflicted./Do you want to rejoin?

Rank 6

Ryuji: You got any ideas?

Best Response: +3. We can train at my place.

Ryuji: Huh? That’s a load of bull!

Best Response: +3. Any choice.

Ryuji: <Protagonist>… You get what I’m tryin’ to say, yeah?

Best Response: +3. Absolutely./More or less.

Ryuji: And Nakaoka can get weirdly stubborn sometimes. He’ll keep his mouth shut whether or not someone’s punchin’ him.

Best Response: +2. So he should’ve punched back?

Rank 7

Best Response: +3. Let’s talk to Takeishi.

Ryuji: I know that ain’t the coolest thing to say, but it’s how I feel.

Best Response: +3. I think it’s cool, Ryuji.

Ryuji: Besides… I doubt those guys are gonna listen to anything I say…

Best Response: +2. Never know until you try.

Best Response: +2. So. Case closed?

Rank 9

Ryuji: Looks like they’re finally walkin’ their own path.

Best Response: +3. Are you satisfied now?

Best Response: +3. Don’t do it.

Ryuji: Wherever you decide to be, that’s where you belong.

Best Response: +3. Any choice.

Ryuji: …I’m just glad I found it.

Best Response: +2. I agree.
