* Way back, in the beginning of the game, right after you fight the first Shadow, you'll meet with Yukari again before going to school. If you've acted nice to her up until that point, she'll ''blush'' as she says your given name for the first time.

* Way back, in the beginning of the game, right after you fight the first Shadow, you'll meet with Yukari again before going to school. If you've acted nice to her up until that point, she'll ''blush'' as she says your given name for the first time. It's worth noting that while she uses ''-kun'' on the male protagonist, she uses yobisute on the female protagonist, which, combined with her friendlier attitude[[note]]Her Social Link becomes available earlier, lacks the Charm requirement and there is no option that will result in you reversing it[[/note]], suggests that she has a closer relationship with the female protagonist.



* That doesn't even begin to cover it. A lot of the links for the [=FeMC=]are subtext-riffic. Her Hermit Link, Saori, could easily be read as having a crush on her, and there is a lot of hand-holding involved in the last few ranks. A lot of the holdover 'romantic' links have... interesting vibes too, like with [=FeMC=]/Fuuka- the Max event has the two of you baking a cake, taking it to Fuuka's room, talking about how you're going to be bonded forever (or in Fuuka's case, wanting the [=FeMC=] ALL TO HERSELF), and then you get the fadeout screen with the 'You spent a long time with Fuuka'- the exact same message you get when you max out romantically with a guy. For a game without an explicit lesbian option, they sure do cram in as many non-explicit ones as humanly possible. Also, the player can tell Fuuka to be glad to have met ''her specifically'' - to which Fuuka gets a LuminescentBlush like never before.

** Aki/Shinji is the most complex relationship, and I swear there's more then enough HoYay. [[spoiler:All their scenes together, that Akihiko confronts Shinjiro about taking the persona suppressants, and that Akihiko holds Shinjiro during his death. It's far more then just random shipping.]]

** This might be a stretch, but Takaya and Jin are always referred to as [[InsistentTerminology partners]], which doesn't go without a double meaning; Akihiko in particular sounds scathing when he says it, but Jin doesn't care. Hmm...And while they're part of a trio, but they don't seem to care much for Chidori, especially since they [[spoiler: kill her.]]

** Plus during December [[spoiler: when everyone is deciding whether to kill Ryoji or not]], Misturu comes into Yukari's room and they discuss things. They come to the same conclusion pretty quickly and they both sit on Yukari's bed [[spoiler:....but nothing ever becomes of it]].

* Yukari and Mitsuru have ''a lot'' of Les Yay.
** For starters, in the Male MC route during the fight in the LoveHotel, the team gets separated, and when you meet Mitsuru and Akihiko or Junpei again, Mitsuru will frantically insist that nothing happened. When you play the Female MC route, you can potentially meet up with Mitsuru and Yukari, and she'll insist the exact same thing.
** Mitsuru's resolution.
** Something of note about Mitsuru's resolution: From that point on, Mitsuru decides to start calling Yukari by her first name. The only other people worthy of this privilege? Akihiko (a close friend from years back) and the MC...at rank nine, long after the S-link has gone romantic. If that doesn't say something about how Mitsuru views Yukari after her resolution scene, nothing does.

** Yukari crying into Misturu, and what looks like Mitsuru holding her to her chest during The Answer.
** "Well, that's settled, let's go have a bath!"
** The New/Full Moon Drama CD series focuses more on their relationship and much of their dialogue can be interpreted as romantic.



* Junpei and Ryoji have no shortage of HoYay, oddly despite the fact that they're both ladies' men. Only a few weeks after Ryoji first shows up, he and Junpei are practically inseparable, to the point of [[spoiler:being out on the town together the night Junpei's girlfriend is kidnapped]].

** Also, this is probably just a coincidence, but Takaya and Jin's names are similar to Tatsuya and Jun, a possibly canon Ho Yay pair in Persona 2: Innocent Sin.

* ''{{Persona 3}}'' suggests such a connection between Fuuka Yamagishi and Natsuki Moriyama, in the way that Natsuki gets ''really'' stressed out when she thinks her bullying may have hurt Fuuka a little too much. SEES has to keep Natsuki under constant watch because they think she might have some... [[PsychoLesbian issues]].

** Like with the male MC, Yukari admits that "going out with" the female MC helped her understand how her mother felt after [[DisappearedDad Eiichiro Takeba died]], a possible hint that Yukari sees the female MC in a similar light as the male one.


** Natsuki wasn't afraid here bullying might have hurt Fuuka a little too much. She was afraid her bullying may have KILLED Fuuka. Anyone would react as she did to the thought that a seemingly harmless prank may have accidentally killed someone.
*** It's still played straight after they become friends.
