>all that fluffy hair
I want to gently run my fingers through it
and then pull on it until he cries.
>not that girly at all
>flirts for information
>pointless shower scene
I mean I know what you're trying to say, but there's a gap between trying to keep a vaguely serious detective story going while also trying to show that the main character is totally secure about being a girl because she can be fanservice and flirt. How the hell is naoto of all people successfully flirting info out of a random guy? Did she just magically learn how how to do it after she grew her hair out? I can buy some pretty outrageous shit, but you have to sell it first.
I guess I'm just bitter because in theory I'd be interested with a story where Naoto solves a crime without being stuck in persona 4's narrative where characters can't do anything until Yu is in the room, but pxdn feels like it's more focused on the stories of the side characters (and fanservice) than the (stupid) crime itself. It's fitting that Naoto's persona changes so that it does fuck all but stand around and make other characters more important. And pxdn fails to sell me on Sousei or Touko, so I can't care about it.
>How the hell is naoto of all people successfully flirting info out of a random guy?
Well, she did spend a long ass time with Rise.
This isn't a "Rise is a slut" comment. But you seriously can't not pick up some pointers while around her.
But that's fair enough. As I said in the previous thread, I'm fine with people not liking it, I just prefer it when people explain their reasoning as opposed to "It's bad because it's bad." I don't necessarily agree, but I see where you're coming from.
I want to rocket jump around the map with Fuuka
The old woman who made Adachi lots of nimono.
>Hisano's not fat, she's geriatric
for a minute i thought it was the name of the fat dude. he's noizumi
>How about Morooka. He has enough content that I could imagine a severely damaged person sincerely husbandoing him
>How about Morooka. He has enough content that I could imagine a severely damaged person sincerely husbandoing him
There's more fanart with Morooka than with Saori, believe it or not.
Like that's stopped people from liking mc
Doesn't stop MC/FeMCfags
Is your devotion to your waifu really so weak that you wouldn't want to see them dead?
The thing is that if he uses dual blades that all but confirms hes going to turn into SHO at some point.
That being said, he looks like a very mage-like or tactician-like character which is my favorite stereotype in rpgs so I hope he doesn't end up using a generic sword weapon.
Personally I hope his personality quirk involves books and that he uses some sort of unconventional weapon like the ones you mentioned.
He reminds me a lot of Ken actually.
I have never played a Persona or SMT game in my life and all I know about them are from the Persona waifu threads that pop up on /v/ every few fucking days
And apparently a new one just got shown and now there's an asian version of harry potter on the front page every fucking day
I've had enough
Starting now I'm going to marathon every single SMT and Persona game in chronological order and see what the fuck you fagots keep talking about
This shit better be
actually it'd be pretty neat if his 'weapon' is his own compendium book, rather than having a velvet attendant holding onto it for him.
Like he first enters the velvet room, but it's inexplicably empty, so he just sort of wings it while he figures things out
and in the true end he replaces Igor, who was killed by the antagonist before the game begins
I don't think that's fair. Naoto was following Touko's instructions, it wasn't a natural skill. Also she's like a third year by that point.
And the crime was pretty cool, actually. The method was interesting and Touko makes for a good antagonist who was relatable. Sousei was the opposite of what I thought he would be and I really like his character.
for some reason this protagonist reminds me A LOT of Persona Trinity Soul
>yfw Persona 5 is based on Trinity Soul
Honestly, when I first played p4 I thought Yu used two-handed swords, as evidenced by the majority of his weapons.
Its kinda disappointing that they decided to retcon that with his absolutely retarded katana use in p4a. Even the katanas he had were pretty big and he used them with two hands.
Making this guy a dual blade wielder is pretty much just as bad as one handed sword.
>mfw considering how much sense Trinity Soul made.
I mean that in p4a they basically changed his cool stance with two handed swords (both japanese and european) into that faggotry he does with that tiny ass katana.
I actually loved Yu's fighting style in p4.
That the hypothetic antagonist has a personalised velvet room attendant implies that he's a long-term guest of the velvet room, not some random fuck who bumbled in like Teddie, Marie, or the P3 cast, and so far all the long-term guests have been wild cards.
I just realized a way for atlus to keep milking that persona 3 and 4 train. An SRPG that throws the shadow operatives back into their persona 3 bodies,snatches Makoto,Shinjiro,Chidori and Metis from the past and puts in the investigation team post dancing all night. Sense atlus loves to make persona spin offs canon Persona 5 characters will be in as well. Now all it needs is some kinda god or goddess that can make that kinda shit happen.
Your idea is garbage
and honestly slightly plausible after PQ and P4AU.
>tupperware behind adachi
>full of yu's delicious homecooked meals
It's full, but it's still the most depressing fridge in the world
Fuck you faggots, you'll be eating your words come Tokyo Game SHO
>Aegis: The First Mission (????) is a cellphone game that stars Aegis set in May of 1999, 10 years before the events of Persona 3.
Is this the artist for Trinity Soul or am I just being paranoid?
I kinda liked this retard.
>implying he won't go full Bunny after his persona awakens
Are people going to be mad if P5:
1. Has as much references to P3/P4 as P3 has to P1/P2. Even Velvet Room residents are different;
2. Has only five party members, the rest are just important NPCs;
3. No Kaneko designs for minor personae, everything is brand new by Soejima.
I seriously doubt this one because Atlus need HD demon models
Main Bro: two handed sword or h2h
Shit girl: throwing knives
Nerd guy: laptop with integrated guns or a scythe, has innate analyze that powers up nerd girls analyze
Nerd Girl: analyze
Tough girl: polearm
Shota: yo-yo that has blades coming out when you spin it
Okay girl: ranged weapon
> 1. Has as much references to P3/P4 as P3 has to P1/P2. Even Velvet Room residents are different;
I would prefer it.
> 2. Has only five party members, the rest are just important NPCs;
Wouldn't be my preference but as long as there are enough compelling NPCs I can cope with it.
> 3. No Kaneko designs for minor personae, everything is brand new by Soejima
That would depend a lot on the designs themselves. Kaneko designs have long been stale after being reused for so long. But I don't know if Soejima is up to the task.
>Shota character like teddie
Anyway I just want them to use Ken original dart shota design.
Someone better weld the jaws of life to free those bound by chains.
In Persona 5, you're the head of a Persona-using gang who wants to take control of the area in order to spread peace and virtue.
Can you honestly tell me you look at Giorno and think he would be a gangster?
if this kid can be a gangster anyone can
Shit girl is initially in love with main bro but can be romanced or paired up with main bro.
Shota can actually be one of two characters. Whomever you pick the other dies. One has jack frost as his persona and the other has pyro jack. Their ultimate is Black Frost.
Tough girl is most likely love interest.
Main bro is more bro than junpei and yosuke combined and is never a jealous faggot.
it could be that he unbuttons his jacket in battle
it'd be kinda neat if he's this quiet, mousy guy that turns out to really really get into fighting monsters that are trying to kill him.
Do you want P5 to do what P3 did and have a "Who's Who" with the P3/4 gang?
That would be a little hard seeing as a number of them would still be active, like Mitsuru, Aigis, Akihiko, Labrys, Naoto and maybe Yu. For the rest of them though? Sure, why not.
You mean that English speakers pronounce words from other languages wrong?
How come the other characters in P4 weren't as based as Kanji?
Kanji is nearly Junpei tier, Chie and Rise are cool, Naoto and Yukiko are meh and Yosuke and Teddie are horrible
I don't know, even the characters I really don't care about in 3 like Mitsuru and Akihiko are more memorable than Yukiko or Yosuke
Nah, Teddie was very annoying but I could still see a glimmer of him trying to improve himself as a person. Rise was just an average, normal girl underneath the Idol image and I thought that was neat even though it's not the first time I've seen something like that
You know it
Well, while I disagree with your opinion, you're still cool man.
Hmm fair enough. I found him annoying when he clearly had issues about not being the leader and yadda yadda. But, well, he gets over it and I think it is nice that he apologizes and works on himself. To me, Junpei is the true bro of the serie.
Just think of what Junpei would do, he'd bitch at him then apologies' and become best friends. But he wouldn't totally ignore them
>Not having Junpei and Akihiko be buttbuddies for a night
That's way too weird
Yosuke acted like a real fucking high school student. To me, he's one of the MORE memorable characters; because he actually played the fucking part.
Teddie actually notably changes throughout the story. For the first couple trips into the TV world, Teddie is really reserved and slowly opens up. Him ending up annoying or his voice being annoying is completely secondary.
Yukiko is boring but what do you expect from someone who works at what people consider to be the one selling point of their entire town? She was even on TV for it, having been broadcasted that she was to be the manager and something as serious as a murder "taking place" there. Acts mature because that's what her life is.
Naoto, I forfeit. She is a boring exposition machine when not used as a "make Kanji's nosebleed" device.
Ken is from P3
Your theory is invalid
No one is worst than Ken
Also Shinji doesnt get enough time to be anything, Aigis and Fuuka are annoying and Kurumaru is barely a character. "he's a cute dog lol" end of history.
Not praising P4 characters any better here, just reminding you that P3 characters weren't as good as you remember.
>Get made fun of by girls for having "unmanly hobbies"
>Well fuck you girls
>Meet up with Naoto who you think is a boy
>Get a funny feeling in your pants
>"Holy shit I want to fuck a boy, am I gay?"\
He's just confused.
Whose Ken? That little brat that I don't pay attention to?
>ass blasted shinjirofag detected.
Do you faggots whine about anything else? The hate on Ken for that shit isn't even close to being reasonable or fair.
Ken is actually one of the more developed characters in p3.
I'd take SEES over IT any day of the year and that's the single stupidest thing I've ever heard
I hate her
Where is the guy who posts about Tatsuya and pizza crusts?
Anytime people bitch about Marie I'm like "have you SEEN Maya?"
I mean seriously
>terrible annoying personality with shitty lines
>awful fashion sense
>completely out of place compared to the rest of the cast
>forces her way into the main plot and hogs screentime
and then she goes one worse than Marie and takes over the entire sequel. At least she doesn't fucking talk in that one.
She loves her work.
I compiled a basic set of tools for extracting P4U2 if anyone cares.
Obviously you will need the game itself for them though, PSN PKG links are in my pastebin that's in the OP.
>its weird seeing doujins that ive rubbed myself to before posted on 4chan.
You're in /pg/ shit like this is posted pretty often.
Just an S-link and a Velvet Room helper who handles skill cards, she barely interacts with the IT until after you finish with Adachi, then if you maxed her link before then she'll go walkabout and you have to either find her during winter vacation (dungeon, bossfight, fun skitrip event) or let her die.
If you save her you get a cool epilogue thing.
You kinda answered your own question there
I just wanted to thank you bro. Playing ultimax on my cfw ps3 weeks before US release is awesome. Keep it up
>T-The detective prince can only be m-mine!
Unreasonable faggots all of you.
Seriously how in the fuck would you feel if your mom was killed right in front pf you by someone and they get away with it scot free because no evidence and nobody believes you cuz you're a kid.
You people are just as bad as the Hope haters.
The kid lost his mom and didn't know the circumstances behind her death.
Shinjiro KNEW THIS and took advantage of it to play the martyr and atone for his scenes. He could have literally talked to Ken and explained to everyone else what was going on but he didn't. And even after all that Ken doesn't even kill him, instead he dies protecting Ken.
I can't take this level of faggotry, you people are impossible and can't appreciate either Shinjiro or Ken as a character.
Are we going to seriously do this discussion?
Kanji isn't exclusively gay or straight. He's attracted to cool people, men or women. He's not submissive per se, but he's at heart a bit of a defensive, motherly type who would make a good house-husband. That's why he likes both Yu and Naoto because they're both intelligent, calm and clever, which compliments his sort of jumpy personality.
Superhyped to see my waifu animated (even if the focus is on Shinji and Ken) and I've heard it's even better than the first one
But thats fucking wrong?
Ken recognized Shinji when he was talking with Akihiko, he didn't assume anything he already knew Shinji was the culprit in his mothers death.
Nigger what part of he saw his mother get killed right in front of him do you not understand?
The one that actually kept secrets there was Shinji, for Ken's sake.
And even assuming what you say is true, you're still being an unreasonable fuck, Ken was a 10 year old kid and he wanted justice, what other way could he know of on how to get it? You can't blame him for "trying" to do what he thought was right. Even so, he hesitates in the end and doesn't kill him and Shinji made no effort at all to explain the situation even when he clearly knew what was going on, he WANTED to die.
>Ken recognized Shinji when he was talking with Akihiko
No he didn't.
>Nigger what part of he saw his mother get killed right in front of him do you not understand?
Yeah, he saw his mom being killed by a "horse monster" like he said, no Shinji at all.
>Ken was a 10 year old kid and he wanted justice, what other way could he know of on how to get it?
Trying to know the full story is one of them. At that point he already knew that Shinji wasn't a damn murderer that would hurt him.
It's a scientific fact that KanjixNaotofags are the shallowest people on earth.
They only pair them because "they look cute together". They have nothing in common, and Naoto isn't interested in, or attracted to Kanji. The pairing is based solely on looks and the schoolboy crush of one character.
They also point out how Naoto blushes when she falls on Kanji, ignoring that her character would blush regardless because she is embarrassed that she can't ski and is awkward around any boys that close.
They also ignore the fact she is constantly shown to be attracted to Yu.
>lazyness and being dirty cheap now are called "abstract animation style"
Jesus fuck, P3shills will do everything to defend their precious game. The cutscenes looks horrible
what about YosukexChie shippers? Just because those two volley insults at each other doesn't make them romantically compatible they have the same dynamic with each other that Junpei and Yukari have.
>They also ignore the fact she is constantly shown to be attracted to Yu
Like every damn character in the game.
I just hope P5 makes certain girls undatable or better yet, you can NTR a party member with his gf halfway through her S.Link, he leaves the team and at the end of her S.link she regrets doing it and leaves too.
>you can NTR a party member with his gf halfway through her S.Link, he leaves the team and at the end of her S.link she regrets doing it and leaves too.
that would be troublesome with only 5 party members
>But Persona 3 was the best Persona.
not even close. persona 2 being the only reason P3 ain't the worst
>At that point he already knew that Shinji wasn't a damn murderer
More like at that point he already Shinji's persona killed his mom. In any case you faggots always conveniently ignore he's literally 10 and basically suicidal by the time he tries to kill Shinji. Not to mention whenever he tries to behave like an adult you complain but when he acts like a kid you demand he remains calm and ask for the full story. Just make up your damn mind already.
But I still think his hairstyle is silly
You realize that after Ken finds out about the true circumstances behinds his moms death and Shinjiros true nature in terms of personality he no longer wants to kill him and regrets ever wanting to do so. This is why its completely unreasonable to hate Ken for this, he isn't even the one who kills Shinjiro.
And like I said before, even if he was a vengeful brat to the end he was still just a child, an orphaned child at that. The circumstances under which he was living were completely dreadful and the only thing keeping him going was revenge for his mom. I can't really blame him for wanting to do what he thought was right, not a fucking kid who has no clue whats going on. If anything everything was Shinjiro's fault for not fessing up from the start.
I don't think either are terrible characters but the irrational hatred Ken gets is just stupid. It shows people don't really care about the attitude and personality of a character at all but rather just their looks.
That is a terrible argument and you're just strawmanning.
Kens personality was designed aroun the fact that he acts mature for his age but still enjoys kids stuff in secret. He's basically how Akihiko would have been like when young.
>you will never watch naoto grow old and alone
>you will never date yukiko and make fun of naoto for being a virgin at 40
>you will never flaunt your growing kid around naoto and make fun of her for never EVER being able to have her own
Shinji isn't even a deep character.
He is only in the game to die, oh look he's a tough guy who likes to cook!
I don't know how the fuck people got so attached to him in the short time he was even in the dorm.
Yeah no now you're just flinging insults to get out of this. I never went apeshit and I don't care about shota. Why don't you refute my points instead? Ken acts exactly how he was supposed to and has valid reasons for his actions. You just don't like that type of character and that's cool but unecessera hate is not.
>posting images on an imageboard that are on topic is against a dumping rule
ok pretend moderator
YOU can date the girls
YU doesn't date any of them.
I like his simple design. Plus people just like badasses, especially when he saves you and the crew in that back alley by fucking headbutting a punk. He's trying not to care. It just kinda makes you want to know more about him because he's mysterious.
It's really too bad that he got capped.
I ship all the girls
by UPS. FedEX a shit.
all the kool kidz call him "slave-kun"
is posting REALLY slow for anyone else? it has been since the site shat itself last night
I found a Easter egg finally. If you blink you'll miss it, but there he is, right before the train passes
Obviously can't be him, but the first person I thought of was Brown. The only other person it could be is Kyouji.
>implying she won't have a cameo in P5
I don't think there are any hidden clues in the trailer, except maybe the cut-ins shown on the digital billboard.
People are speculating about the boy band too, but I dunno.
I mean there may be some things that are not obvious and we'd have no way of recognizing right now, that will turn out to be significant.
It looks to me like the intro to the game, similar to when Yu and MC get off the train at the beginning of P3 & P4.
I don't remember lots of hidden clues all over the place in either of those cutscenes.
>It looks to me like the intro to the game, similar to when Yu and MC get off the train at the beginning of P3 & P4.
Yeah and Yu and MC were new students, though we don't have enough info to confirm that for P5MC.
>The sound direction of the P3 cutscenes was what made them great in my eyes.
