Well from a Tator perspective at least:

Suzumiya = The Fool
Koizumi = The Magician
Asahina = The Pope
Nagato = Strength/Fortune (or perhaps Justice)
Kyon = The Fool's dog (not a card, but a thing on a card) If a card...the Wheel of Fortune.

Woooooooow. Shocking.

I loved the AI even if it was frustrating. It felt more immersive. But I did say gameplay had improved.

And before P4 I kind of got the impression that being extraordinarily fucked up was a prerequisite for having a Persona... flawed characters in "unrealistic" scenarios, who spend their nights fighting eldritch abominations as part of a government-sponsored squad are infinitely more interesting than normal high schoolers with stable lives who are pretty much the Scooby-Doo gang with a giant teddy bear instead of Scooby-Doo.

In Persona 3/4, the Magician arcana has a tendency to go to the Perverted and Moronic Yet Tragic Hero-type character.

That is definitely not what Koizumi is. Nor is either Asahina The Hierophant, who is generally knowledgeable and wise. Maybe Adult Mikuru, but...

Nagato works as Strength, though... and you have no idea why Suzumiya as the Fool is fitting, but yeah, it fits.

Spoiler for September the Fifth, Day 4: Hallway: A Familiar Laugh:
Spoiler:
This line seems curiously 3rd person, more like an omniscient narrator then Kyon talking to us. On purpose or no?

Also,
Spoiler:
I got an Evangeline vibe from this line, for some reason... I can just see Tsuruya calling Kyon "Boya" and making him run errands for her.

Shouldn't that say chairs rather than stairs?

It's either blood, or somebody put cherry pie filling on their popcorn instead of butter.

It's pretty obvious, but did you guys notice what room that's in?

That should answer the question...

I think i see a little drawing in the blood on the popcorn box....I'm not sure if I'm imagining it or if it's actually something.

I was looking at it from a Tarot only angle, having no Persona knowledge.

I realize I have Koizumi and Asahina reversed, but Asahina is still wrong.


So Koizumi = The Pope

Asahina = The Hanged Man

Hierophant suits Koizumi well, as does Hanged Man for Asahina.

Good job.

Actually I do know some good reasons for Suzumiya to be "The Fool", the card's description and use was almost enough...but the purpose of the Fool's dog sold it.

They appear to be flowers. From what I can see, they seem like roses. Then again, I posses little knowledge of what most flowers look like.

It's a thumbprint. I was just a bit sloppy with it.
