For getting work done!
>there will never be a P2 or P1 anime.
No, P3 totally deserves five movies. Go ahead, make that shit.
I've never seen any figures but I always assumed Persona had a pretty sizable female audience given how relatively easy the game is and how the primary focus is on the characters
Considering how many Fujos like persona, I'd say there's a lot of females in the fanbase
Will Morgana make cat puns just like Teddie made unbearable bear puns?
I can already hear her saying
Maybe if Chie voices another 11/10 cat character.
To be fair, his original, far more interesting character was actually about masculinity issues rather than AM I A FAG. Of course, when there's something blatant vs not-as-blatant to latch on to, especially with sexuality in a sex-obsessed society(Americans. Japanese suppress everything that doesn't contribute to sales-hungry robots, not just sex specifically.), you can bet people will latch on to what they can make fun of the most. And Atlus ran with it for cash.
My main issue with Kanji bit is the people who've only heard about their shadows and didn't even touch the game make headcanons declaring Kanji Gay and Naoto "Genderfluid."
Good job sport, you missed the entire fucking point of their shadows.
Persona is actually quite popular among females
probably due to the sim aspect of it
I do know that /pg/ got one of the biggest male:female ratios in /vg/
Not that they are numerous, but compared to everywhere else...
Where have you been?
Why can't he draw feets?
Just look at orpheus, izanagi and now this
He can't fraw feets
You know about that? I guess the cat's out of the bag. Don't worry, she'll be a good character. She has a winning purrsonality.
>if you take in account "Phantom Thief? Absurd" conversation with naoto atlus was trying to warn us all along
>we didn't listen
Worth all the same
I'll check them out when someone puts them in the OP. I'm more bummed about losing all my reaction images because I never got a backup
It's not really surprising. I think some people need to realize Japan has different stereotypes as to what gay is. I think the typical Japanese idea of a gay man is closer to Kanji or Arena Akihiko. Big, tall and strong. Bodybuilder stuff.
Are you me?Really though, from what I've noticed, the former is nearly universal to the point where even his OG English VA thought Kanji was into dudes. Tumblr's Naoto shit is a product of that(and other things like Tumblrina culture as a whole, but I feel the general public's idea that Kanji was gay and it was hilariously justifiable that Yosuke acted like a complete retard at times due to that perception is a big progenitor of Tumblr's insistence that Naoto was trans and Kanji is their sweet gay babbu and should have married Yu).
Amazon's not loading up again for some reason but it's the only thing that pops up if you search Lisa Silverman figure
at least arsene has feet.
Izanagi and the three deaths just had tapered stumps
maybe he just thinks feet look silly dangling down while the persona is floating
then again, judging from that screencap the persona stand on the ground now. actually, it's just floating there with it's knees bent. huh.
>arsene is chained to Phantom in the screencap
>yfw it's like that for all the persona
>fucking nekomata with a chain collar
think of the pet play
man my housemate is gonna love this game
Atlus was playing us for a fool this whole time.
not really. give the chains some half decent physics, make them a separate 'object' and put 'chain connects here' points on the models
no one would even care about clipping since they're just psychic projections anyway
at the same time, all I can think of now is all Phantom's persona just dragging him down the street like in those cartoons
I'm you, and you're me.Kanji is not at best bisexual. His main issues involving his sexuality come from his feminine hobbies that he was teased for causing him to become self conscious, especially towards women. That doesn't mean he's gay, at best he's Bisexual.
Yosuke though? He's full homo.
Naoto's involves something similar in which she desired to be a man because as a female and a teenager as a detective leads to some discrimination to her out of jealousy because she's been put on the case and provided with all of this attention as well as all of the people she's idolized being males, which is also connected to her desire to be a man.
It's not hard to understand these things.
Shinji's able to tell Naoto's a chick just from looking at her. Everyone in Inaba including the PD are fucking clueless to this. Please tell me the adult versions of the p3 cast were smart enough to know Nao-cakes gender as well.
>Not at best bisexual.
I meant gay.
I'm tired. I apologize.
Not the guy you're replying to but I find it hilarious when people insist that Kanji is gay just because of how meanspirited and stereotyping the argument is. "He got bullied and mocked until he became insecure about his sexuality, and since he has a traditionally feminine hobby he must lust for cock!" It's pretty cruel
Theodore is a resident of the Velvet Room who is the younger brother of Margaret and Elizabeth. He frequently gets pushed around by his sisters. Do you prefer him in his apron attire or with his regular Velvet Room clothing?
I think they do. In Naoto's route, anyway. I may be remembering wrong but I think Naoto uses her gender to console Labrys, saying that she still has problems reconciling who she wants to be with what she is, but at the same time realizing that that difference between self-perception and reality is a part of who she is, it's what makes her her, and that's important. And then stuff about friendship and all that jazz.
I never said I wasn't aware of that. Big guys like pic related can't be treated somewhat seriously since they'll be quietly disliked(ignored or outright shunned like with how Japs do with everything that doesn't fit their model of a perfect person. Like emotions, any sort of nudity, or smokers/drinkers that aren't at least in their mid 20s) for not being funny while gay(as burly dudes are the gay stereotype in Japan). And that's more of the current climate. Back around the height of vanilla's discussion, it was pretty much gay Kanji jokes or DEEP discussion of how Kanji's homosexuality changed my life/opinion of gays/etc(although that kind of thing can be found in almost any fandom, no matter how small or if it's serious or not). TDLR pretty much no one in the general public got the point aside from one or two losers every now and then who'd try to "correct" people's opinions on the subject.
Tumblr's a lot crueler than 4chan at times.
It's kind of sad.
Regular, stylish as fuck
>TDLR pretty much no one in the general public got the point aside from one or two losers every now and then who'd try to "correct" people's opinions on the subject.
This will happen with P5. I wonder what about this time.
Ultimax is bullshit in story. Yukiko,Rise,Kanji and Naoto only get to do stuff in the beginning of the story and nothing else cept fight hordes of fodder. and on the P3 side, Yukari,Junpei and Teddie hog all the screen time. Why is Teddie all over P3's story?
I think in Persona 3 somebody mentions that a shadow's arcana is a good way to guess its weakness but I don't remember ever paying attention or trying that since I can just press the L button to learn its weakness by the next turn.
Nah they do so because atlus push the whole Kanji being homo as look at arena and PQ
and yes you can tell when someone is gay by how they act my brother is a faggot and once he said some shit about gaydar of something
At least her development with him was easier to get into rather than Yu shouting bonds and friendship speeches at him til he gave up.I feel more bad about how the cast killed minazuki in the p3 path
sometimes gay people 'act gay' as a sort of mating signal to let other gay people know they're available
other times they just want to be the 'sassy gay friend' because it's an easy way to get accepted into social circles
also there's mean some studies that seem to suggest you can actually smell when someone is gay. Like, there's no smell that you're conscious of, but gay people had a higher chance of finding the sweat of other gay people of the same sex more appealing than straight people of the gay sex. although that in itself doesn't seem very reliable because lots of shitty people will go 'I find you attractive, that means you're secretly gay and should totally have sex with me. trust me we can sense this stuff, science said so.'
>Nah they do so because atlus push the whole Kanji being homo as look at arena and PQ
I don't think either of those games make Kanji look gay. It makes Kanji look like he doesn't think before he speaks and tends to say things people could misconstrue.
Yes. I appreciated those plots the first time around but my point is that wasn't the case in the general public even slightly. 4chan really doesn't give one a good view of how the majority sees things at their most absurd since it's pretty much straight to a point here.
Although you could be just complaining about this. Which is fine for you. I gave up long ago.
"Awww yeah. I'm gonna bond that toaster ass."
Nah, you just recarm them back to life.
Unless they're Shinji.
Just finished the story mode.
Why did arena/ultimax need to shit on the P3 cast by making them all fightan game character cliches molded to fit P4's theme. Ken is only character from P3 cast who was okay.
Not to mention fanfic tier writing with definite over use of the "bonds" in every scene. It's worse than persona 4 animation.
I feel so much worse for the experience. So glad at least P3 MC wasn't touched so he could stay separate from the train wreck.
Are you kidding? Mitsuru was given one of the worst characterisations
>I need....... To atone for this...!
>I can't tell anyone else... This is my responsibility
>I involve my friends...... This is my mess.....
She went backwards from where she was in p3
They used it more by name, but even in P3 he was still all about the meat. He was always going to the beefbowl place and talking about training and strength like they were the only words in his vocabulary. I guess I didn't see it as much of a departure. I still like him as the big meat-headed lunk he is.
>like this is a serious psychological disturbance that he needs therapy for.
Welcome to Persona. Where therapy doesn't exist.
Alternatively, welcome to Japan where therapy brings shame.
Actually Aigis made it out the best. All she had was her bow changed into a tie.
Mitsuru and Akihiko were always awkward like that so their wardrobe isn't THAT far off.
Junpei makes sense because he coaches baseball and it isn't that goofy of an outfit, but a baseball based moveset was a little far, even if it's a unique mechanic.
Yukari I can't for certain get behind, she certainly should have changed first.
I worded it like a joke, but it is Japan. They do seem to have a problem with acknowledging psychological problems and seeking help when ignoring them is easier. Take the hikkikomori situation as a prime example of people more willing to try and hide a problem than fix it.
Fem shinji looks too much like me.
This bothers me.
How 'bout this?
You mean like different ranks of social links give you combat bonuses? I hope something like that makes it in. I like it when both parts of the game tie together.
I've heard some psychological clinics in city areas get so fully booked with people trying to get treatment that they can only spend five or so minutes with the doctor before the next patient's appointment starts
is that the rise all-out one
that was kinda iffy since you had a random chance of a huge damage bonus and it wasn't exactly deep, you just spent days with rise and played the fights the same as usual
You talking shit about Kanji Monroe?
It's not the same though. Training is more about getting stronger mental composition and his obsession with it stems from not being able to protect his sister and never wanting to lose someone again which inevitably he does making him having to reevaluate his idea of strength/bravery.
Now replace training with protein and it just makes him retarded
I think the implication is the protein is to improve his training, which he's still obsessed with. He wants to get the most out of this. In Q it makes sense since he hasn't changed yet and in Arena it feel more like he does it because he enjoys it.
I want to know one thing
How do you guys think that the Social link system could be improved?
I see people complaining here and there about some aspect of it but never propose a change
>inb4 remove it
>I see people complaining here and there about some aspect of it but never propose a change
Sounds about right.
I really dig those designs.
>There are no animu grills in this world
Hold up MC, I'll be your replacement now I don't want to live in this world anymore
Sorry..? Wait till technology advances enough, I guess...
Make it have some relevance on the plot for example you supposedly make Dojima a better father on Nanako social link but playing through the game you will see several instances of Dojima being a negligent parent anyway.
Don't think like that, anon
You're feeding Erebus and making MC suffer more
I'd rather be Yu. Mostly because of the door thing.
There are a couple of other reasons too.
But wouldn't that mean I want to die and wish for the fall? I'm not saying thst. i'm just okay with dying. I've accepted my mortality and don't fret over the fact that my journey will ultimately end with my death.
Be glad, live your life to its fullest. That's the best we can do for him
It's not your fault.
ITSUDATTE ITSUDATTE ITSUDATTE SUGU YOKO DE WARATTEITA NAKUSHITEMO
>Friends who are not shit
>Cute cousin and cool uncle
>No monster inside
I don't know why would anyone choose being MC. I bet MC himself would choose being Yu if they asked him.
More stuff on akinari/dojima+nanako tier, less Kenji/bebe/chihiro
Every rank should reveal some new information about the character or involve some kind of minor conflict, and it should be executed in a way that makes it interesting
The overall concept of the link needs to be good too, so that the conclusion/main conflict feels good. Noizumi's an example of a link that just got fucked in the planning stages while akinari's one with a strong enough concept to carry most of the link.
He'd choose Piercy. He does whatever he wants offscreen, his friends adore him, and even his inner demons are pretty bro tier
i like chihiro plenty and she's similar to my own waifu who is not persona, but couldn't she have gained some confidence with someone else or on her own
my own waifu has a lesson like that, but some people inserting as the player avatar decided that they are the only superhero who can save her, but that's giving her very little credit, like with chihiro here
>Noizumi's an example of a link that just got fucked in the planning stages while akinari's one with a strong enough concept to carry most of the link.
I liked Nozomi's link way more than Akinari's... I didn't like either as characters, but Nozomi amused me while I found Akinari boring, also I felt MC wasn't needed for Akinari. He could have just talk alone and write the book, I didn't feel MC did anything for him or helped him in any way.
Do you guys think Atlus could ever make a cool fat protagonist? I've always wondered (being fat myself) if that could work. Like someone who's a lummox with a heart of gold who'd quickly take a mortal blow for his friends and that's how he gets his persona or something.
(Ps: can't reply back but I'd be interested in what you guys have to say)
I don't even know what to do with this post.
When you max an S.link in P5, that person's arcana will change to Jester, to show that they truly understand how you are deep inside.
The best ending happens if you turn everyone into jesters.
Let us start the game
Not that guy but if they have a thing for self-insertion, why are cute girls constantly getting fucked by gross fat men in doujins?
Nothing kills my boner faster than seeing anonymous fatties pork a Chinese cartoon girl.
I'm not him, I'm not a Chihiro fag.
>most of us here are fat
Is this true?
I'd really like to get to know my /pg/ brethren.
Are you guys like pic related?
>We talked about this last night
I was busy saving the world from a falling moon last night.
I like a little humiliation, but most of the time the girls get fucked by the fat dudes and become a cock slave. I don't see the humiliation in that. Looks more like a mindbreak fetish.
Yeah definitely less of that
P4's links are generally good at having each rank present something new. I don't think p4 had many problems with sl concepts either but the linearity of every link except ai's was a little disappointing.
I had the thought of making each link have multiple endings instead of straight break/reverse, like being able to encourage yukiko to leave town over the whole of the SL, or convincing rise to leave idol business. That kind of thing would be the 'bad end' and it'd have some penalty on the rewards you get for completing the link. Ai's link if you date her would be like the 'good end' while not dating her would be the 'true end'
Having the links/character development not tie in with plot development was also sad but I can understand why it's like that
Alright, I'm geniunely curious
Post Gender, age, nationality, height, weight,
>Spic (Caucasian Spic)
Dang, I figured Reddit since I can't really think of why someone would post that on YouTube. Only mentioned it since I remember somebody posted a YouTube comment here before too.
>and become a cock slave
This is the part I hate about the whole fat rapist.
I like the humiliation part, but I want to see them humiliated to the very end. Also cock slave is incredibly out of characters for most characters.
Never underestimate the ability of fans to revision a character's appearance.
MC already looked like a girl though.
Why do you think Junpei is not popular. His issues with MC would make for great hate sex, but he is not pretty or handsome so they don't give a shit about him and use Ryoji instead who he barely talks to.
>MC looks like a girl
Why do people get that impression?
Because he has the same face and legs as the girls? Because they do call him androgynous in game?
If anyone ever wanted to play Labrys in Ultimax this video is a pretty good primer
Goddamn, I knew something was up with Kanji's look in PQ but after reading the 'tier list' in the OP, I cannot unsee how much he looks like a caveman.
Fuck, I don't want to have such a hideous caveman on my team, even if he's Kanji.
I wish I could get good at ultimax but I suck and don't want to invest into getting a stick.
Plus half the terminology just goes over my head even with me watching some FGC stuff sometimes (not persona though).
