One of the main features of the new Persona series titles are the so-called Social Link, i.e. relationships with various characters within the game to which different tarot cards are associated.

Spending time with them will rank the associated Social Link, allowing us to obtain various bonuses useful for gameplay

In this guide we will explain how to easily advance the Social Link of the arcane Lovers, associated with Kujikawa laughed.

Personal profile

Kujikawa laughed he is one of the first characters that we will be able to see in the game, more precisely during a cutscene in the first minutes of the title. We will soon discover that this is a famous idol from Inaba, which has quickly won the hearts of most of Japan.

Her arcane is linked to the hearts, that is that of Lovers, whose relative Social Link will be unlocked by the protagonist shortly after the young girl returns to her native country, taking a break from show business.

She will initially appear to be quite sad and tired, but as the Investigation Team's mission progresses, she will begin to open up more and more and accept her life as a public figure.

It represents the stereotype of the idol, a typical figure present in Japanese productions and closely linked to Japanese culture in general.

As in reality, Rise has to suffer several conflicts from pretending to be perfect in front of the audience. This recalls the philosophy of the game itself, as “Risette”, that is, his idol name, is one of the masks (person) he wears but cannot accept, precisely because he does not believe that he fully represents it.

From the beginning she will seem attracted to the protagonist, and precisely by virtue of her arcane Lovers, she will come very close to him from a sentimental point of view.

This will help her, during her Social Link, to develop a deep relationship of trust and friendship with the entire Investigation Team, which will allow her to finally see the fruit of her efforts.

Unlike the other members of the group, he will not participate directly in battle, but will have the role of Navigator thanks to the Persona Himiko.
