How To Hug Yukari?
In Persona 3 Reload, you can hug Yukari during the summer vacation at Yakushima Beach.
This pivotal moment in Yukari’s romance route shows her vulnerability and trust in you.
However, Yukari confides in you about her past, feelings, and fears.
She reveals that she lost her father when she was young and that she blames herself for his death.
Further, she admits she likes you but fears losing you.
She asks you to stay with her, and you can hug her.
If you hug Yukari, she will hug you back and thank you for being there for her.
She will also blush and smile, showing her affection for you.
Significantly, this choice will increase your bond with Yukari and make it easier to start the Lovers Social Link with her later.
If you don’t hug her, she will be disappointed and sad, and your bond with her will not increase as much.
Start The Lovers Social Link With Yukari
To start the Lovers Social Link with Yukari, you must have a high Charm stat (at least rank 6) and initiate the Link with her on July 25.
You can find her during the day in Gekkoukan’s Classroom 2F on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Generally, you must return from the Yakushima vacation before you can talk to her.
Once you start the Lovers Social Link, you can hang out with her regularly and pick the correct answers to her questions.
The Lovers Social Link will allow you to learn more about Yukari’s personality, background, and role in the story.
You will also see her grow as she overcomes her insecurities, opens up to you, and becomes more confident and happy.
The most important choice is at rank 9 when you have to confess your love to her on the school rooftop.
You will become her boyfriend and unlock her romance scenes if you do that.
However, if you don’t, you will remain friends and miss out on her romance scenes.
