    So got back into P5 now that some things have settled down. Does anyone else find it weird that Atlus doesn't have conversation portraits and reaction cut-ins for Morgana as a cat while in the real world? That mascot face while she's a feline in a bag looks off.

    my guess is they just didn't want to draw the cat reacting in a wacky way, since the cat is supposed to be an incognito form (even though he's forced to look like that outside of mementos)

    No one in P5 approaches him. Yusuke would have if they didn't see fit to have given him the worst character introduction in the game

    Continuing my slow trek through Persona 5: Smelling the flowers edition.

    This time after clearing Futaba's dungeon I managed to raise my Charm enough to access Toga's social link and it immediately became the strongest Rank 1 perk in the entire franchise. Being able to switch out party members almost fully compensates for not having the ability to switch out persona on individual party members. This is going to change a lot about grinding and boss fights now that the party has greater flexiibility and I look forward to what future perks the Tactical Social Link provides.

    However, the actual first session of the Social Link was pretty lackluster as it basically amounts to you being told to stop admitting you're a beginner and just play a professional level player blind. And when she finally realizes instead of being peeved she wants more because "I sense a gamblers spirit within you" which I'm translating as "You are the Main Character so let's do this". I think the writing for the Social Links has been decent up to this point with Takemi being my favorite of the one's I've unlocked.

    all that reminds me is of how Makoto literally has the worst s. link in the game
    you can't complete it or it just ruins her persona

    So, uh.

    The P5 anime is out.

    It’s bad. P4 remains as the only Persona game with a good anime adaptation.

    The actions scenes so far have been pretty underwhelming yeah. But other stuff has been ok.

    Show Spoiler
    seeing kamoshida go for the punch on Shido was a bit chilling. I didn't think he hit the female students as well.

    However the All Out attacks are uh....Blazblue anime quality bad. Ugh. They need to fix those and the fights pronto. Im hoping the boss fights are entertaining at least...


    Oh, also the anime is said to going to be a bit different from the games in some way, so im sticking around till I see what exactly that is, and I hope its not going to be the one thing everyone called on literally days after its release.

    Really? The game came out in, like what, August for Japan? And I know some people have been playing it for a week or so, must have leaked.

    I mean it's not like it's on a system that everyone wishes would die already.

    I mean, I'm still excited for it.

    Nintendo and if I recall correctly Japan in general don't seem to agree with you.

    Though I actually do, at least as far as "kill the 3DS goes", I'm not exactly excited for "let's put stupid shit in SJ instead of just porting it or changing it in a way that matters". Will probably end up playing it anyway, but meh.

    nah, Japan seemed pretty hype for it considering the game was the fifth best opening sales title in all of Smt with 60K copies sold in that first week, and was the third most in software sales of that week when it came out.

    Sauce: https://personacentral.com/smt-strange-journey-redux-debuts-first-week-copies-sold-japan/

    and for a remake on a seven year old handheld, that's pretty good.

    I mean, I wouldn't mind a Persona 4 Gold Experience REquiem rerelease on PS4... or Persona 4 Ultimax rerelease to coincide with Cross Tag battle.

    No, I didn't, they're never going to stop milking that trash.

    Best case scenario we get a new fighting game.

    I wouldn't mind a Persona 5 Fighting Game with P4 characters older, like what happened with P3.
    Or a spin-off focusing on other characters in the future or past. Someone suggested a Nanako game or focusing on other NPCs that was a decent idea.
    guess we'll find out.

    But as for Anime, I imagine it'll be a movie version of one of the games... or a Dancing All night Anime.
    Or DAN Manga

    It’s confirmed that it cannot be that.

    Atlus said they wouldn’t make or greenlight another Persona Arena game unless Cross Tag Battle does well.

    It's not fucking elitism. It's preference. It's cool if you like the new art but some of us don't. Doesn't make anyone less or more for liking one or the other.

    And what is it with rereleases of SMT/Persona games shoehorning unnecessary females into their plots.
