Ann is one of the romanceable characters in Persona 5 but for that you will need to level up her Lovers confidant rank...

Ann belongs to Lovers Arcana with Carmen on her side to defeat shadows. Charming, beautiful and intelligent, Persona 5 Ann dons a Panther mask as her alter ego and can be romanced in Persona 5 Royal.
