You can’t go wrong with joining a sports team, and once you become a member of the Track Team in Persona 3 Reload, you meet Kazushi Miyamoto, one of the team’s star athletes. He represents the Chariot Social Link in P3R.
Persona 3 Reload Chariot Social Link Guide (P3R)
Chariot can be started on 4/23 at its earliest by visiting the Track Team. Enter the Corridor door at School Building 1F, head straight up to the Gym Hallway, and enter the Practice Field. You’re offered to join the Track Team, so accept it to start the Chariot Social Link.
Unlike other versions of Persona 3, you cannot join the Kendo or the Swim Club as these no longer accept members. Track Team has always fit Kazushi’s story the best, anyway.
From here on out, Kazushi can be seen in your classroom on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, except when it’s close to test week. Always bring a Chariot Persona (like Ara Mitama or Chimera) to get extra points from the dialogue choices. If you don’t, completing his Link will take longer than expected.
You can (and should) also start the Strength Social Link after meeting with him for the first time by saying hi to Yuko when you see her after practice. Ask her to walk home. She won’t accept it but’ll do it next time you two meet.
|M-My side is killing me… I might’ve overdone it a bit.
|You don’t even look tired… Uh, what kind of training regimen do you have?
|It’s just, um… my anemia’s acting up.
|Sorry! That sounds awful.
|I tried medicine, I tried wrapping it, but the pain won’t stop.
|Will it heal?
|Wh-What’s up? I was just gonna sneak back into practice.
|She made the appointment without telling me, so there was nothing I could do!
|That really sucks.
|Man… I keep running into you at the weirdest times.
|Back from the hospital?
|You gotta be kidding… Why can’t I… stand up!?
|Take my shoulder!
|I want to win, so I have to practice.
|Show some guts, man!
|I promised I’d win at next year’s meet and become the number one athlete in Japan.
|Why go so far?
|That’s why I have to win this meet – so I can make it to nationals!
|What about your knee?
|I know you didn’t say anything. I just think he can tell something’s up.
|How’s your knee?
|Otherwise, I won’t be able to keep my promise to my nephew!
|You have to get tougher!
|You must know what’s going on.
|I’m sure you love lugging all this dead weight around, huh?
|I don’t mind at all.
|There’s something I wanna talk to you about.
|I’ve made up my mind. I’m going to have surgery to fix my knee.
|What about the big meet?
Finishing the Chariot Social Link allows you to fuse Thor, one of the strongest Thunder/Physical Personas for its level range. He’s a beast, and you’ll probably use him for a while once you get him.
Kazushi might not be able to run for a while, but I feel he’ll still be a good role model for his nephew despite all that. Unlike other characters you can bond with that study in the same classroom.
