I'm a sucker for scenes where everyone bands together for a big moment, as cheesy as it often is, so I enjoyed the last episode a lot more than I thought.

The cut to the ending was really abrupt but it's already been hinted everywhere I go that that's what the True End is for. Doesn't make it jarring nevertheless. They could have found a better spot to end the episode and leave the farewell for that.

Overall, I'd say this was enjoyable. The production quality was poorer than I expected, which is a shame. I actually prefer Trinity Soul's story over P4 (helps that TS has the better production too), though I suppose I'm in the minority on this.

The comedy and light hearted moments are definitely where the show truly shines though, bar a few moments like Kanji's arc. I laughed at the bathouse gags but still felt like they could have handles his plight more meaningfully. Other than that, the character designs are good (<3 Soejima's style) when they weren't herping and derping around. I really like the songs too. So happy to hear Never More playing at the end.

... I suddenly feel like watching Trinity Soul again but I don't think that's a good idea to do so right after the cheerful, positive tone of P4.

I have a request for the everyone in general. Please remember that not everyone has played the game or knows what the true end entails. There are some anime only posters here. The true end is still a spoiler to the anime. As such, it is against the spoiler policy to make "any comment that discloses an event, character, plot or other information before it is revealed within the specific work being discussed is expressly forbidden whether or not it is behind spoiler tags." [Spoiler policy]

Well... final episode sure was intense.
Lots of action too.
Our little group sure had their hands full with this final fight.
Watching Yu fight was really something.
Pretty good final episode.

It's not like it's the first time the optional super boss in a MegaTen game was like that...heck some of them even had no relevance to the story (Hitoshura in DDS, Lucifer in DeSu 1, Alice in DeSu 2,etc., etc...)
Lucifer might have something to do with the storyline if you take his comment about his 'son' literally Though I agree with your points there.

It's still a bit weird. She said 'farewell' and speaks as if that she's seriously trying to kill them all rather than testing them in the preview...

You can't really properly test if somebody can handle someone who actively tries to kill them unless you actively try to kill them.

I was meaning to ask last week why the hell the party's personas never got upgraded, but decided to wait for the last episode to air just in case. Good thing I did

Their power-up scene was a bit cliché but enjoyable nevertheless. And it confirmed once and for all that the OTP is Yu x Yosuke

I'm looking forward to the final episode/OVA. Looking at the preview, it looks like it will need to be at least 40 minutes long to included everything they want to.

Great Last episode specially when Lucifer shows up. They really are saving the best for last.

Is their a preview for episode 26 aside from that confirmation?

They definitely saved the best for last. I thought it was a good move to have the group upgrade their Personas in the last battle. Saved a bit of time and let them show just how much more powerful they were now.

I'm guessing they are saving that True End episode for a Blu Ray only release. In that case I hope it's some kind of 45 minute episode so they can really do something good with it.

Episode 25 was rushed and made me wonder what happen to the kotatsu, dolls, and cake promised when Doujima and Nanako were released from the hospital? All of a sudden it jumped to March 21 for Yuu Narukami's farewell to his family and friends.

August can't come soon enough.

It is a very decent ending. Considering the time constraint which can't be help, they still made a self contained story.

Looks like my guess about having an alternate ending in OVA form is correct. From what I gather on the end teaser, there will be a another episode 25, an alternate version from the one on broadcast, that will lead to the True final ending episode, were everything be all tied-up. Cool

I wonder when will be the North American DVD/BR release? If it contains ALL the episodes, consider it sold.

OK jokes aside, not a bad episode, everyone's new persona came out and the big bad got smashed. Nanako got a confession scene, Dojima's reaction is priceless.

Feels both a bit too slow and too rushed at the same time, if that makes sense.

Yeah, I thought Chie's upgraded persona was funny for that reason.

I thought Dojima's reaction was pretty good. It's fine if he does marry Nanako but hands off while she's underage .

Liked how they kept the two max dojima social link conversation during the end there, while adding an original line. Nanako <3

But... 6 months to wait to watch the ending I wanted to see

Since they're taking their time though, it should be glorious!

Since the midnight channel is what the (at least majority of the) viewers wanted to see, then how much of that "Gay" Kanji is actually him but not what other people think he might be?

Chie's fist of heaven came out!!

Anyway, watching it again I found that Chie had at least 2 scenes where the viewpoint was below her skirt (fist of heaven and new persona time) but we did not see what's below (I've been watching too much harem anime)

I just find it odd that Chie's persona has a big spear and later a 2 sided lightsaber, but don't actually use them, she prefers her kicks.

The rules of the midnight channel change when someone is in there.
