*puts down his PS2 controller and puts on his game perspective glasses*

About the possibility of Yu appearing in the next dungeon with an end-game Persona like Sandalphon (or godforbid, Zaou Gongen of Strength Arcana), we might need to consider his actual (in-game/in-universe) level. Uber-Personas like the two I mentioned take a fairly high level to summon... especially Zaou Gongen who needs... what, 90+ for Yu to even think of fusing him from other high-level Personas...

*puts back his normal glasses*

That being said, I still think anime Yu outstrips his manga and game incarnations just by getting through the dungeons with no weapon equips so far. It's not like you can unequip him in the game, but still. It's like the crew is using their Personas like a trainer would use their Pokemon.

Which is no problem for me, by the way.

We already had one persona which violated the level restrictions.

Are all the Personas that have appeared so far "Wild" as in they can be drawn through the cards after battles? Pretty sure Ara Mitama is and think Pyro Jack is as well.

Eh, I don't love harem endings except for certain cases. Think that there isn't a need to push it that far in this case. Lot of different characters and possible pairing options if people really want to have everyone paired up. I wouldn't mind them going ahead and having Yu get together with someone since it'd be interesting to see who they chose and how it'd look. Anyone unhappy can always just go and play the game anyways . Possible they won't have the will to pick and just keep things general/harem, but we'll see.

But Yuu is a Persona MC - it just goes against -all- the Persona memes and tropes to deny him his harem.

Why have a harem when Rise is all that he needs?

Nah, you get more with just one. When there's more, you just focus on not being nicer to one over the other in anime.

how appropriate
The fact that they used Zigeunerweisen twice is awesome but I'm kind of getting annoyed that it's being referred to as "that Catherine theme".

As for the show, despite being rushed I'm rather impressed at how they handled the social links and characters. Perhaps this will be the first time SMT got a decent anime adaption?

I dunno, extra S Links not working for me so far. I guess that's mainly because in the game you get to do them over a long period of time, which gave you a sense of progression and it reflects reality, where bonds with other people take time to strengthen and mature. Cramming 2 within a span of an episode doesn't sit well with me, as a game player, but that's just gripes coming from game experiences.

Rise would just drag the MC into a life of paparazzi and insane stalker fans who want him dead for daring to touch their waifu. He would probably be dead within a year if he ever left that small town with her. Bad end for all.

Chie is obviously the #1 choice here. There's really no downside. To disagree would make you look very foolish, don't even bother.

He's young. He can get used to a more exciting lifestyle.

Chie has Yukiko.

You're talking about Yu here. He can handle a few stalkers or a hundred, no problem. I agree with Orion, it would spice his life up. It's not a downside at all. +1 point for Rise

... by the way, I'm not sure we should be talking about a character that hasn't even been introduced yet.

Well, it's not like I like this characteristic of Persona anyway
And I disagree about Chie x MC (since their "relationship" was beyond stupid and for me it made no sense at all). You can call me foolish now

But no seriously, go back under your rock Rise x prot fans. Yuusuke is the canon choice.

What? Joking? Absolutely not. Bromance is an emotional, pwoerful thing. Where one transcends desire and true friendship and embraces a torrent of manliness! As such Yuusuke ship cannot positively be wrong. Harem? Pfft, that is exactly why we get soft porn harem shows! Let us embrace the manliness that is Yuusuke together!

Or be prepared to be assimilated.

Agree entirely .

Don't know how the series will handle things, but do know who they should put their support behind .
