Spoiler :
GAAAAAH. Why no sports team s-links yet?! That was my favorite one. ;___;

OH Yukiko Shadow. W Y SO PERVY. XD

I also LOVE the sarcasm that the MC has with his ridiculously serious attitude. "I'm Crying" [POKERFACE]. "I wish I'd taped it..." [POKERFACE].

Oooooh Yosuske... You and your stupid weapons display. The headdesk of that action [even in the game] is ridiculous. >_<

Again, I'm enjoying the realism that the personas do all the fighting. Because I seriously never bought that golf clubs could do all that kind of damage. Even in video game logic, that's stretching it. >_<

And poor Chie.... I never really understood her inner shadow's problem, but this anime really did a much better job of portraying this. And again, great shadow battle. I really liked how hurting the personas really hurt their owners. That makes sense, considering that they're both the same thing.

I also have to really give MC some credit. Notice how he didn't do much to hurt the real shadow during the confrontation? He gave Chie time to really confront herself.

WILD CARD. OH HELL YES. <3 But Shadow Chie isn't weak to fire. >_>; oh well, I'll forgive it. Pyro Jack hurts. Glad to see Izanagi sticking around though. XD


But anyway, I'm looking very forward to seeing next episode's mission and possibily

Spoiler :
Shadow Yukiko...


Seriously hope we see more social links soon though. Although if the ending animation is any sign, it's probably one per episode, with the exception of a few when they probably double up.

ep4 = using Pyro Jack against Yukiko's shadow... ooook, I was expecting Jack Frost, ho! Anyway I'm confused as to how Yu was able to use a strength persona when they haven't down the social link for that yet, unless briefly talking to the basketball guy counts.

Yeah me too. Or doesn't Chie's persona use ice? Would have been nice to see that instead of fire vs fire. :( But I'm really hoping to see some social link stuff soon, I'm getting a little bored of this "rejecting and accepting your other self" thing. Even though it's like essential for the characters. I can't wait to see Kanji and Naoto though! ^^ XD

I did see a bit of basketball guy in the preview but I didn't know the girl was Ai. :uhoh: She wasn't really a character that stuck out to me much in the game. (and I didn't max her link either LOL)

Wasn't Ara Mitama supposed to be Chariot?

And clearly...they're saving Jack Frost for P3: The Animation :ying:

Wasn't as fond as this ep as I have been the other, but I was never super into Yukiko in the first place so that might be the reason?

I agree they kinda missed an opportunity with Chie's ice skills, I would have LOVED to see her put out all those flames and then save Yukiko.

Is Yu going to have to give a speech to every person he saves? Mix it up a little more, at least have Yosuke chime in too.

I do like how they're using the Wild Card ability, it's being integrated pretty well.

Hyena Yukiko, now that I like XD

I guess this might be out first ep without some exciting battles, huh? I like Kou Ichijou and Daisuke - and not just because they remind me of Ken Ichijouji and Daisuke from Digimon. No.

so, been playing the game little by little over the last 2 weeks, got past Kanji's battle (that will definitely be...interesting to see in the anime). I then decided to watch what was in the anime so far to compare the two. my first couple reactions were:
1. They definitely made this anime for fans of the game, so many things taken directly from it
2. This series is super fast paced, they did in 4 episodes what took me almost 2 weeks to do in the game (granted they pretty much skipped most of the extra social stuff you do).
3.
Spoiler :
Cracked up at the part where shadow Yikoko finished her TV speech and he's like "I wish I had taped that" lol

Episode 4 was very enjoyable.

Spoiler :
I'm not minding it going slowly. I mean, we've now got the 4 main characters, so we will probably get more social links now. :3

Love the utilization of the wild card. They're really using a lot of great methods of bringing it out.

Still really loving how the characters get hurt alongside their personas. LOVE THAT.

Shadow Yukiko was definitely fun to watch. Actually, I really relate with Yukiko on a personal level. So this was really a personal battle for me, both anime-wise and in-game. Her character arc was one of my favorites. I loved the addition of the bird caged storyline. It was cute and really added to everything.

Loved the firey battles. The flame effects were really cool. Especially loved Pyro Jack making his absorption appearance. Very smart MC. Very smart. :up:

Although where was Bufu?!?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU CHIE?!?! >: |

Ep 5

Spoiler :
I never finished Ai's Social Link and I chose Daisuke over Kou, so this was almost entirely new content for me. I thought they handled it pretty well, but Kou's side of things was a little rushed ("Hey, Yu, I totally trust you enough to tell you this all the sudden"). Considering they seemed to put two full S.Links into one ep, it was done pretty well.

How can Yu do so little and yet make me crack up more than anyone? hanging up the phone, His face in the photo at the end. Apparently the ringtone he had was from the game Catherine, which is kinda hilarious in hindsight.

I hope Kou and Ai don't just disappear after this, Id like to see them around school every so often. Maybe a weekend hangout like the games? It would be a shame if Daisuke was left out of things, but Yu already has the Arcana...

Kanji next week already? <3

Ep 5:

It did feel like they sped through the social link pretty quick.Though it was quite nice to see this side of things rather than them always fighting shadows so it was a pretty refreshing episode! :mrgreen:

Spoiler :
Yu's face when his phone was ringing was priceless. :rofl: Since normally he rarely expresses any kind of emotion so seeing him all worried and nervous because of Ai was hilarious.

I hope there is more Ai later on but I doubt it. I really like her final event in the game when you do it right and start dating her for real <3 I hope hope they do the rest of Kou's social link, it had a nice story to it but they've only touched on it in this ep.
