I’m having the exact same issue with the save. I tried running this on the latest “Bleeding Edge”, and using Citra BE 86 which I usually use. On the outdated BE 86 build Citra cashes when you try loading the save, this issue does not happen on the later build. I presume the fault lies with the save and not Citra itself. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help here, I’m not a Citra developer. I’ve also attached my own log file to this post, I hope it helps further diagnose the issue.
What I can do is offer my save. I’m at Chapter 9, same route as you. I’ve also done some grinding and the only A+/S rank social link I’ve done is with Kaze and Rinkah. My protagonist also has the Magick buff and luck debuff chosen at character creation. I’m also on the Normal difficulty with Ironman enabled. Hope it helps
