On April 27 (April 27) IN Reload Persona 3, Kirijo enrolled you into the School Council without your permission. You don’t need to raise your Courage, Charm, or Academics to participate; You’re in it whether you like it or not.

The Student Council Room is located on the second floor of the school building, right down the hall from your classroom. While you don’t need to attend any meetings to finish the game, they are still necessary to advance Imperial Social Links—more specifically, Hidetoshi Odagiri’s Social Link, who oversaw the disciplinary committee. You may attend each School Board meeting Monday, Wednesday and Fridayexcept holidays and during exam period.

At first, Hidetoshi Odagiri was a real pain. He really wants everyone to follow the rules, and if anyone breaks them, he will start criticizing. After finding cigarette butts in the boys’ bathroom, he spends about half of your Social Link events talking about it and accusing other students. Even so, if you watch his story (Social Link) from start to finish, he will open up more and you will discover why he is the way he is. To get his sympathy, you should tell him what he wants want to hear instead of what he needed to hear.


To receive a larger Social Link increase during these events, equip the Emperor Persona before talking to Hidetoshi.

In rank one

    • They are the worst!

In fifth place

  • It’s a good thing there aren’t those hyenas around.

    • But I just got here…

In sixth place

  • I mean about the punishment for smokers.
    • It seems too harsh.

In seventh place

  • Um, did Odagiri-san do something?
    • Any answer is fine here.
  • …So you’ve heard all that.
    • That’s not me.

In eighth place

  • I prattle on about rules and fairness, but all I really prove is that I crave power.
    • Don’t blame yourself (other options also seem to work).

In ninth place

  • So how did I do it? What do you think?
