Episode 2 was equally enjoyable. I'm ready to meet Kanji already though. He freaking makes the show. Even though Youske is my favorite character, I can admit who does the best with it.

Can't get over the fantastic art style... I think it's the hair. The shading or something around it.. The colors maybe? They look so unique/genuine and just downright pretty.

Spoiler :
Mkkkay. Teddie is just plain hilarious. Much better than I had imagined. I love his violence in pushing them out of the TV. Oh, and those sad eyes. How can you NOT go for that. XD

Creepy boss from the gaming world was ridiculously creepy. Forgot his name for the moment. He wasn't all that important anyway. Cast/created beautifully. Those eyes. DAMN. Crazy...

Youske's eyes when he found out she died... And then when he started hearing her voice say all those things about him... THE SADNESS. ;_________; I could probably do an entire AMV around that by itself... /heartbreak about poor Youske

And wow... Shadow Youske. O_O Just... Wow. Talk about appropriate artwork/voiceacting. Then again, the shadow people are what made me love the game so much. It's really quite painful to see the dark parts of yourself pop out. Oooh. THat laughing. <3

Same battle music as the actual shadow bosses with "Face Yourself?" WEWT. <3

The thing I really liked most about the episode is how they really utilized how the personas do all the work, and that the people are more or less ridiculously reliant on them. OOh. And especially when they did all the TV stuff to really hit home Youske's lonliness and hatred of the boonies. I seriously hope they do something great with the rest of them, since this is really turning into quite a great character profiling anime with real character development.

Then, we've also got the lovely fact that the personas really do just want to be accepted by their users. GREAT addition.


All in all, this is probably turning into one of my favorite anime I've seen, even disregarding past the part that it's one of my favorite games too.

I don't watch too much anime, but reading all of this thread, I got excited and I figured I'd give it a try and I was sorely disappointed. So far, it's...alright. And I don't understand the gushing over the animation, that is also just....alright. I'll keep watching for a bit, maybe two episodes isn't enough.

I would be surprised if anyone who hasn't played the game enjoys this actually, it caters for existing fans rather than trying to pull in new fans which is evident by the fast pace. Like I only like it now because it's "OMG they used the 'I'll face myself' boss battle theme", "OMG this scene was from that part of the game where...", "hnnnnnnrrrrgggggg Yukiko" >_> Probably acts as extra marketing for the PS Vita port of the game and PS3 fighter of it next year.

This is kinda true. Sometimes I think I'm just waiting for the scenes I recognize to appear and then go "OHHHH, I REMEMBER THIS" or "XXX IS GOING TO APPEAR SOON!" so when they missed out that scene of MC walking past the crime scene I was like " WUT. :x "

x2. I think I just adore the colouring in general but the hair is damn pretty. :mrgreen:

On a side note: Episode 3 tomorrow! :shark: for me who lives in the UK...

Ep 3:

Spoiler :
Aww, little Chie and Yukiko. I like the little tidbits they are adding here and there.

Have the subs always used Kuma? I thought the last two eps used Teddie.

Oh gosh, Yu's reaction to the Midnight Channel. OH YU.

The gang still don't have any weapons...I wonder if they will get some after they get Yukiko, as they will have a 'full party' then. I find it sliightly odd seeing Yosuke just punching the card to activate his Persona.

Oh gooooosh they made use of Yu's Wild Card. I fanboy'd sooo hard XDD

Yosuke uses the same spin punch to activate his the same way as the game. Anyway ep3... yeah I can't understand why this show might seem stale and 'forced' to newcomers. It's like 4 lines of dialogue then NO NO I AM NOT THIS. Just doesn't feel natural compared to the game <______>

I thought in the game Yosuke used dual wielding knives to slash at the card to activate his persona...? :uhoh: maybe I'm remembering the wrong thing...
