They really did a great job with Shadow Yukiko. While of course this was by virtue of medium, I don't remember feeling this moved while going through that event in the game.

Looking at the preview, I'm glad they're giving all his social links their own time in the spotlight (hopefully!), and not just concentrate on the main cast.

Well, new episode was more about normal life of a school girl, at least the first part that was pretty uneventful.
Second part was pretty standard so far with fighting herself and getting a persona.
The action parts are always nice though ^^

Where in my game was that fire resistant Chie? WHERE!?

But yeah nice episode, though I do fill it dragged toward the end, yes we know you felt jealous of the bird, you don't have to tell us. The song made it worth it though.

Also, why so much hate for Ara Mitama? When you get it, is probably the best persona since you need the physical resistance.

Using it as fusion fodder is one thing, but actually summoning it to battle felt like a joke. The wild card ability actually being used is a nice feature though. One of my greater fears was that Yu would exclusively use Izanagi.

Welcome to the team Yuki!

The anime's shown that Persona level isn't really a consideration as to what gets shown (i.e. Pyro Jack), so people were expecting something that was both useful and a lot more interesting design-wise than one of the Mitama.

I am also looking forward to next week's shiny balls.

I just watched episode 4. I'm really enjoying the series so far. I really like the music and the art.

This series is either hit or miss. I can follow the story because I have played Persona 3 before. But for people who are unfamiliar to the series, the anime may be confusing. The anime doesn't explain any of the technical details: velvet room, friendship bonds, etc.

I'm pretty sure it's one of those things that need not be explained, the velvet room is still something of a mystery while the friendship bonds are pretty obvious- And if they're not, I'm certain Margret has already mentioned a few times that the stronger the bonds you have with people, the more powerful you become. And if THAT wasn't enough, the ED ends every episode with the quote: "The bonds of people is the true power."

I'm hoping for Nurse S. Link, though that's highly doubtful. I'm pretty sure there just gonna go with school/after school based links were other casts can show up.

has it been said how many episodes this is? I'm guessing 22-26, as 13 would be absurd.

Though for some reason they have avoided giving the full "Thou art I... And I am Thou" initiation speech which explains it better.

25 according to the licensing press release which matches the JP PR twitter range of 2 cours.

Anymore and it's like they're hammering the point.

If that look Narukami gave Yosuke after beating the shadows in episode 1 is anything to go by...

... Yep, love that bromance.
