[Video] The Confidants of Persona 5 – #6 – Toranosuke Yoshida
The protagonists of Persona 3 and 4 were able to use the bonds formed with primary and secondary characters to boost the powers of their Persona’s during their creation – through a system known as “Social Links”. In Persona 5, this system has been replaced by characters known as “Confidants” – who will grant the protagonist special skill bonuses, useful services and more, the more he gets to know them. Serving as another of the protagonist's confidants, Toranosuke Yoshida is a politician who genuinely cares for the people - even if his track record isn't perfect. He can often be found at Shibuya Station Square, giving rousing sermons about changing the corrupt system and protecting Japan's future. When the protagonist gets to know him, he learns all about the art of speech - which is sure to be handy when trying to negotiate with enemies mid-battle.
