Key Takeaway

The Sun Social Link is shared between Yumi Ozawa and Ayane Matsunaga. Who you’ll bond with during your playthrough depends on whether you join the Drama Club or the School Band. Selecting the Drama Club will trigger a friendship with Yumi.

You can trigger the Sun Social Link with Yumi as early as April 25 by talking to Yumi on the first floor of the Practice Building.

It’s possible to enter into a romance with Yumi by hugging her during the Rank 10 hangout. Reaching Max Rank will enable you to fuse Asura.

Spending time with your battlefield allies in Persona 4 Golden is important, but hanging out with others boosts your Social Link and lets you fuse more powerful Personas—like with the drama-obsessed Yumi Ozawa. Improve your dominion over the Sun Arcana by interacting with this theatrical teen!

    About the Sun Social Link

    There are two choices for the Sun Social Link—Yumi Ozawa or Ayane Matsunaga. If you choose to join the drama club, you’ll establish the Sun Social Link with Yumi on the first day you attend. Joining the school band will establish the Social Link with Ayane instead. You may not join both clubs, so choose the character you’d like to spend time with wisely. 

    As an overly enthusiastic and demanding member of Yasogami High School’s drama club, Yumi Ozawa lives and breathes her craft. She hopes to someday become a famous actress. However, over time, she begins to miss more and more club meetings. This is the result of her strained home life taking a toll on her mental health.

    It’s possible to trigger the Sun Social Link with Yumi as early as April 25 by speaking to her on the first floor of the Practice Building at Yasogami High. 

    Tip
    Attending Drama Club can increase your Expression skill.

    Sun Hangout Conversations

    As you attend drama club and spend more time with Yumi, you’ll have the opportunity to choose certain dialogue options. Selecting the right words can boost your friendship more quickly.

    When you equip a Persona of Sun Arcana prior to triggering a hangout with Yumi, it will grant bonus affinity. As such, the number of points you’ll receive for selecting the best dialogue options increases.
