I played the game, know whats to happen next and all that....
But gee, this episode still managed to make an impact. With Yuu having some emotion, the fight against the New World Fool just felt so so much better. And how things shift into Nanako's pov in the end is an amazing touch. It managed to ache my stomach even knowing what is going to happen next.

Why! Never thought a P4 ep would have me at tears. How can they do that?

It's this one. It stands out a bit since it's one of only two dungeon themes in the game with vocals.

Gotta say I still prefer the cutscene of Kunino-sagiri's appearance from the game more, it really gives the feel of a "savior" descending from Heaven:

Spoiler for Video itself doesn't have spoilers but some of the related video links at the end do.:

That t-shirt reminds me of Vash the Stampede's motto: "Love & Peace". It's completely ironic for the 'savior'. How did Kunino-sagiri knew about Kohryu?

Episode 22 delivers the drama quite well, eventhough knowing the story beforehand it is still heart wrenching to see the last scene (which i shall not name the spoiler).

Glad to see Tam Lin gets an appearance at last which is one of my favourite early game demon to use especially in the Devil Survivor series. Also Devil Survivor 2 is out for those who still kept their NDS and so far have been lots of fun for me.

It's a little confusing what just happened. Did the psycho guy really try to save Nanako? He mentioned something about the fog, and Nanako's health deteriorated outside the TV world.

So maybe bringing them into the TV world after they have been chosen by Midnight Channel is a way for them to survive? In that they have to conquer themselves in order to become complete. If that is the case, then since Nanako did not complete that task, it is understandable why her health declined.

Also, I am guessing the fog is following Nanako, hence it become greatly foggy in the real world.

Game rules do allow fusions into arcanas that don't have an established s-link. Also possible through fusion errors. And Judgment still hasn't been established yet this ep.

A lot of what you ask should be explained in future eps. However, the anime never really showed that the fog comes into the real world at a certain point after each dungeon opens up. You see this in game, and it vanishes the same night. Except this time, it hasn't and is worse than ever as was explained this ep.

If you had not mentioned this. I would probably never have known about it.

The sad thing about some really good JRPGs...they never get the marketing they deserve

Episode pretty much covered what was expected. Yep, looking forward to next week with ya'll gamers.

That Taro guy is a total nut job.
Yu getting controlled like that was pretty bad.
Nanako was the only one that brought him back to his senses.
The fights were nice.
Seems like the two worlds are more closer now.
The whole fog thing is kinda weird.

There's actually one thing Teddie said this episode that you should take into consideration:

"Nanako is still small...so her other self (shadow) didn't appear like everyone else..."

This implies that Nanako isn't old enough for her to have a hidden "shadow side" festering in her mind yet, so facing herself would have been impossible from the beginning.

First of all, this is the anime, not the game. It's been shown that Yu can only summon Persona from arcana he has already obtained.

Secondly, Lucifer is the ultimate Judgement Persona, so in the game Yu can't even fuse it until he maxes out the Judgement social link.

Still has a very few Arcana left anyway and I'm not sure how are they going to be presented.

Yeah, it wasn't that heavily advertised. I signed up for the email list on the Atlus USA website- that's how I get my reminders. The game's kicking ass!

Persona 4 rerelease for Vita will probably have a higher profile.

Thank you for listing that out, I never play the game so this is really helpful.

Anyway, episode 22 was amazing, great amount of drama. Cant wait to see how things end, but at the same time I don't want this anime to end D8

I... felt that last scene in ep.22 more than in the game.

Definitely because of Yu's reaction (vs a silent protagonist)

Excellent episode. The ending hit me hard. Out of all the characters they could kill, they chose the most innocent one for maximum impact. And it worked.

I realize now we're not going to get any kind of romantic resolution. Disappoint. At least pick one Yu, they're all into you.
