Almost... best part was that everyone ignored them for the duration of the game

* Ebi v Chie catfight!
* new music during the Ebi dates and the baskeball game/catfight!

The skipped stuff:
* details about Ebi and Kou's home lives. Since the Moon SL is over, I guess I can fill in the details I remember. She's actually rich, since her parents recently came into wealth.

The WTF:
* Yuu is huge. The game designs were slightly chibi compared to normal proportions, so I never noticed.

This show is just getting better and better. The writers are actually filling in some deficiencies in the game, even if everything is rushed.
I notice that he's taller than Kou. When Kanji shows up, he should be slightly taller than Yu. Yukiko is the tallest of the females in P4 and the anime shows her height appropriately. Looks like he got 2 S. Links done in a week according to the calendar.

though really Chie and Ai's cat fight is golden and no one even cares.

But with Ai's social link finished. There goes the harem end in my first play through I messed up in Ai's social link that I ended up in the friend zone. Unlike the others which is all in the lovers zone.

And here I thought by the end of the series Yu will be irresistible harem king.

I'm glad they're adding some things without 100% focusing on game story.

Well I guess it was OK. That bitch slapping scene was probably the only thing rememberable, apart from Yu's awesome social skills.

I don't think they're done with Kou either. There is more to his story than what we saw, and that's most likely the reason they chose him over Daisuke in the anime. I like the way they handled Ai. A little fast paced but it did the job. I very much enjoyed the catfight

Yu's now got 3 new personas in store. I can't imagine him having to use them all in a boss fight, so they might keep the sub boss battle this time. He could also use them on mobs, but that'd be a waste.

That made me laugh really hard. Setting up "Love is over" as his ringtone for Ai was genius.

They certainly alluded to it, but never confirmed it - so I guess the game does confirm it

Anyway...

A little bit faster than I expected - but as it is a social link episode and somewhat irrelevant to the main plot beyond giving Yu as many persona to use against the shadows, I can't say I'm surprised. Have to admit - bloody hell is Yu quick or what? a social link fully completed in about ten days.

Unlike in the game where you could side step the main plot (such as rescuing Yukiko) to do such social links, an anime portrayal can't get away with that - so it certainly makes more sense this way.

Honestly never got to the end of Ai or the basketball/soccer club social links, but it seems like they're well worth another look

Speaking about Yuu's height, I saw this fanmade chart of the main charaters from the persona games (without p1). I guess is based on official info, and the heck... characters on p2 were tall, too.

that bitch slap fight was epic. I was dying.

I dunno, something just feels, off, with the pacing of the show. I know they have to get through a lot of content, but I think they are kind of rushing things to be honest. I can only assume they are gonna do a LOT of S. Link's if they are blowing through multiple's in a single episode. I mean, that's good and bad, more S. Link's=more story, but each one will be really short and they will have to cut details. Fun episode though.

Strangely enough, this is getting me sort of hyped to play the Vita version. P4 is one of my favorite games ever, but I had no intention to play it again as it's so long, but I think I might have to pick it up when it comes out.

Oh right, it's a social link. And here I thought I watched a completely pointless filler...

(Not joking, I genuinely thought that)

Jealous girlfriend & basketball club, what's up with this episode, kinda disappointed.

Well, Jun is shorter than Yukino (both from P2 IS), but... I guess Jun is a special case.

Even so, MC for p3 was pretty short too. And, oh, well, in fiction this is the standard: men are always as tall as women or taller. The contrary is really rare.

Social Links! My bane and addiction throughout P3P Every time that bar increased by one you get that little high

Kou was a pretty okay guy he makes a good friend but I was never really into the whole sports thing so I don't quite get 'passion'... But on the other hand, Ai was really cute and Imo, a better design than the P3's sport manager not to mention that voice (Itou Kanae ), and I like her story about how she actually worked hard to get her looks and didn't have everything served up to her on a silver platter.

Funny how Chie is still pretty popular even though she isn't as feminine as the other girls, but I like how she stood up to Ai and didn't falter when Ai countered if she liked Yuu.

P.S - Ono Daisuke and Sugita Tomokazu...Really? These two guys playing best friends again ?

The two social links I liked the least...

The catfight was hilarious, seeing Itou Kanae and Horie Yui duking it out. Then again they just rampaged through 2 hole freaking links.

Persona games have that... blending soft date/friend sim with pointless RPG-inspired hack'n'slash

Quite addicting I must add

Let's see how it works in the adaption, a filler now and then ain't bad

Well... nature IS sexist, average male height IS larger than female (for most species)
