Like its predecessor, Persona 4 is divided by fixed “time blocks”. On normal schooldays, the day may be divided to EarlyMorning, Morning, Lunchtime, Afternoon, After School and Evening Blocks. Normally, you can only freely do what youwant during the After School and Evening Blocks. On holidays and Sundays, the day is normally divided into the Daytimeand Evening time blocks.
This time block is available when there is a story –related scene, but it will just normally contain normalconversation and gossip while on your way to school.
This time block is normally used for lectures and pop quizzes. Answering pop quizzes may increase yourrelationship with a friend if you help him/her answer the question correctly while listening to lectures mayimprove one of your core stats.
