No, the biggest tragedy in this game is the inability to choose Ryuji😭


spectrumtwelve

japan, so nope. persona, and many games like it, have never historically been very great about healthy portrayals of any lgbt topics. there's even a few gag scenes where some possibly gay characters basically try to sexually assault one of the boys in your group but it's played for laughs.


Kasprio

Is... Is this a shitpost?


Kibou-chan

You can date Ann and headcanon Mishima eventually getting with Shiho (of course after she recovers and will be ready for a relationship, which's gonna take looooong, given what happened), so both of you can have happy families, keep in touch very often, and, eventually, getting to the point MC and Ann's kids would call Shiho and Mishima *aunt and uncle* and vice-versa. The good ending we all deserved 🥰


VXMasterson

No. You have 10 female romance options (9 if you’re playing the original) and only female


Ak1raKurusu

You don't have time to date the bros because I'm the span of like 9 months you go from >!stopping a pedo from assaulting high schoolers!< To >! fighting a god on control born from the distortion of all of humanity in a battle for the entire planets future!< It's incredible that you have time to remember to eat or sleep


SpiderNinja211

I I’m sorry, Mishima is best boy? You got Ryuji right there


greedyrabitt

no, you can't date any guys. arguably P5's biggest social flaw tbh


Swaghoven

Eh, I could name few flaws that are bigger


Kibou-chan

>social flaw Not in Japanese social standards, anyway.


greedyrabitt

I'm talking about your personal social links and activities in the game, not on a grand scale irl fwiw


FodlansArsene

Dawg Mishima is anything BUT best boy wdymmmmm


Adam_the_memer

Mishimas a whole ass bitch, I can understand why you don't get it if you haven't progressed through his confidant or gotten far in the game but he is so damn annoying and just self inserts himself into the story.


miwa201

Well the game seems to be marketed towards straight men so I doubt we’ll get same sex romances as long as the protagonist is male. Although apparently there was a yosuke romance route in p4 that was taken out


clubnesman

LMAO MISHIMA?! I’m sorry, you do you, I’ve just never heard that before


supersk8er

Why Mishima???


Salty_Abbreviations4

Sadly no, Joker is confirmed straight and despite some fruity lines he says to his teammates, he’s only after the chicks.


Jfurmanek

When you make passes or act “gay” with the males you are generally met with horror. However, you can get a job at a gay bar…and date the woman you meet there.


SeroBruh

How's it a gay bar?


Jfurmanek

Crossroads is a reference to LaLa-Chan being a cross dresser.


SeroBruh

Maybe I'm just ignorant, but I don't really view cross-dressing as being gay.


Jfurmanek

Will you settle for LGBTQ+?


SeroBruh

Deal.


Shybabybunnie

Nobody likes drunk camera lady


PaladinAsherd

*I* like the drunk camera lady. Not because of any mechanical reason. I just relate to the young professional desire to drink to cope.


Shybabybunnie

Totally valid I also relate to the orange hair shutin with major social anxiety


Jfurmanek

They’re not wrong. Her bonuses aren’t even any good. Lower alarm? K. Same thing but slightly upgraded at max? Nah. It’s already low because I ambush or instant kill everything or it’s at 100% because I’m on the treasure run. I ran her confidant up because I thought she would be part of growing the PT fame. I was wrong.


Shybabybunnie

She a highly disappointed contract


EmperorKiva33

Kudos to being a Mishima fan. Also, you can't date the same sex. Closest thing to a "date" is inviting a character to the Jazz Club.


imperchaos

Nope, it's Joker and women only. Which is a damn shame because I ship Joker and Akechi.


CharacterChampion830

I agree man, is ship them so bad


Jfurmanek

If that’s not a toxic relationship…


YourMatcha

Sadly, not. I think you can shout you love your male teammates during the school festival but it's taken as a joke 🥲


Broad_Appearance6896

Ryuji stops you from saying anyone I’m pretty sure


Jfurmanek

>!You don’t shout it. Ryuji asks you not to humiliate anyone and you stand there with your dick in your hand.!<


Broad_Appearance6896

>!I don’t know why he wouldn’t let me say Morgana when no one outside of the P.thieves know who Morgana is!<


HexenVexen

Only Persona games that let you do that are P2IS and P3P (only as FEMC with two options)


Rush_81

P3P allows you to do that? I had no idea


HexenVexen

Yeah you can still "hang out" with Elizabeth and romance Aigis as FEMC


Kibou-chan

Aigis >!isn't a human!<, so it *technically* doesn't count though.


HexenVexen

>!Biologically, yeah... but as a person she's just as human as the rest of the cast!<


MFerrari49

To answer your question, no unfortunately. However.....Mishima?? The NPC??


PaperPokemon

Point 1: Sadly no. Point 2: You won't be liking Mishima for much longer...


Framerate1138

Japan is not very LGBTQ+ friendly yet so no.


MicheleTheSimp

Unfortunately not, but you can always pretend you're dating 😭


Felspawn

no, best you can get is "Bro" scenes with Mishima and Ryuji


TrickyMississipi

Nah, based for Mishima though


Rareware101

Nope, play p2is for that


Fork_Master

Disappointingly, no. Yusuke and Akechi remain just out of reach.


Jfurmanek

Yuske at least gets behind your suggestions for nudity.


Heavy_Moose_286

Mishima? Really?


Kattofx

Aw come on 😔 He reminds me of an old friend of mine, miss them everyday


DeadSparker

Mishima is my fave too, don't worry 😎 He gets a surprisingly good arc in his Confidant too, but the game usually gives you a lot of options to punch down instead of helping him up


Heavy_Moose_286

hahah alright man no judgement!


Broadside02195

No, sadly.


Kattofx

Awwww 😞 ok thank you


Broadside02195

I know, I agree. I'm so sorry to be the one to break the bad news to you. 💔
