The scene with Yosuke actually did happen in the game, but only if you choose the option...

So this time we got to see what was happening to Yu during summer vacation.
Well, it was interesting seeing his side of the story that was missing last time.
It was good, but it's missing the action with personas.

I decided to type 8,000 yen into a yen/US dollar converter...It came up to almost $104. It's a bloody umbrella! Does slapping a name on top of it, slap the price up. Well if it works with Jordans, it can work with this.

A fox asked me to get job - best line ever

While last week was adorable, this week was hilarious finding out what Narukami was actually doing. Can't believe it was him that stole Kuma's suit.

I must say, most likely since Yu was the main focus of the episode this time, I'm glad to see the amount of emoting he does has increased quite dramatically. It makes him much more interesting to watch as the suburban hero he is now compared how he was at the start of the anime.~

I think the episode managed to combine all the new social links rather nicely, and get across the challenges they were facing and Yu's assistance in helping them overcome them.

And nice cameo Tanaka from Persona 3 made there. Speaking of P3, next episode seems to be the class trip to Tatsumi Port Island and Gekkoukan High. I'm expecting Chihiro to make her cameo again, but if a member of SEES shows up at any point that would be awesome.~ (I'd even take Koromaru.)

Yuu is like, the manliest man ever. Who was the last man you knew that goes way out of his way for several people in one day?

yeah, everything is apparently insanely expensive. 80+ dollars for an umbrella is insane. I'm surprised Dojima didn't back hand Naniko for losing something like that. He should of took off his belt!
What exactly is the point of becoming powerful if one cannot indulge the hedonistic opportunities that come with it?

Had to watch this episode to see what caused Narukami to do all those jobs: the fox told me to do them. It was hilarious to see him suffer and toil, then at the end lost to Kuma getting all the girls. Putting on Kuma's suit and then get beaten by the children at the daycare is brave. Margaret seems to have an interest in Narukami anyway for doing 5 S. Links and his eyes show the results of being fatigued. Mr. Tanaka's catchy jingle really brings back memories of P3.

Tanaka did play a nice role in 4 as the salesman. I hated him in 3 for stealing my money without anything in return. Not to mention he was just a douche bag in general. His theme song was refreshingly nostalgic for some reason.

I'm loving the remixed soundtrack.

The social links weren't as fulfilling for me this time though. Developing them over the course of the game is what gave them meaning. Of course, they don't have hours to devote for each character either(some of which don't deserve it anyways). Having a little mini plot to tie them together was a decent choice to do wrap them up in 3 episodes.

It seems the old lady wasn't lying about Yu being the spitting image of her husband either 0_o.

Tower pissed me off more than he did in the game. I showed him up with superior int stat during that social link though. Hopefully Yu did too!

The nurse seemed a lot more flirtatious in the anime. How he blew her off was pretty funny though.

That kid and his mom.... eh, I dono. I'm at a loss of comment for this one.

Mr. Fox was interesting as ever.

YEAAAAH Guardian!!!!!! Yu on a mission to conquer the river. I thought you had to fish on a rainy day though?

Quite frankly, Yuu is pretty much the only reason I am watching this show. Normally, if the only thing a series can offer is an interesting character, this just isnt enough. But I will make an exception with Persona 4. I love the personality they gave to Yuu. He is strong willed yet gentle and kind.... not to mention smoking hot. I also like the fact he is pensative and doesnt talk like a waterfal, which can be annoying.

All in all, I find Yuu very attractive and that makes up for otherwise bland and very generic shounen anime.

yeah, this episode was reallly great though i wished they would have made more episodes of the social links instead of compromising them in one episode. the best scene for me was the "explosive fishing" scene with ėll face myself background music.
They really did a great job in developing Yuus character. In that aspect it really surpasses the manga.
So the next episode will be the school trip with kings game and maybe Chihiro from P3. Cant wait for it.

I never expect them to go into detail for every social link, so what they did this ep is really great how they tie everything up so nicely.

The use of music is as awesome as ever.

also, seems like our Nanako has got a little competition:

@Jeroz, nice screenshots!!!!

I really enjoyed episode 14. As a matter of fact, I liked the plot expositon of both episode 13 and 14.
Episode 13 made it clear that Narukami is engaging in all kinds of activities which to an uninvolved observer looked funny, mysterious or even obscure. We could only guess what he was really doing, well knowing that it probably isnt as it seems.

Episode 14 filled us in on the blanks..... or better to say, the story was told from Narukamis perspective.
I think I liked two scenes the best, first one was, when Narukami was on the bus in the Kuma costume. I was so laughing my ass off and it only got better, when he met his friend upon getting off the bus and pretended to be Kuma, rolling clumsily on the sidewalk. I really loved the squeeky sound effects of the rolling that added to the comedy of the moment.

Another interesting aspect were the advertisments on the bus, clearly the plot suporting elements of this episode. The first one was an ad for the loveline show and the second for the neo featherman robot. Both wre pretty obvious refereces, but I didnt get the last one:

Spoiler for size:

The second scene I found hilarious was, when Narukami was leaving the house with his hard core looking fishing gear, as if though he was on a earth saving mission leaving his little sister with an wtf expression on her face, rofl

And I must say I enjoy episodes like these far more than the actual figting episodes!! I like Yu more and more, he is such a cutie and so kind. My most favourite shot with him would be this one:

Spoiler for size:

He is just so cute, I dont blame the nurse for hitting on him, heck I would do the same, hihihihihi

Funniest episode so far. I really love the anime's portrayal of Yu. They hit just the right note.

Episode 15 looks to be a great fanservice episode.

Heh, we finally see what Tanaka's show looks like. It's as lame as I imagined.

Also, judging from the MS-09S Brahman and Heavy-Armor Agni models on Yuu's shelf, the Hermit S. Link is at least on Rank 5.

I think that Unlucky Ninja thing is an anime original. I went back and looked at a walkthrough based on the Japanese version of the game and I couldn't find anything related to it. Incidentally, Magical Witch Detective really is Witch Detective Loveline in the original Japanese game. Looks like Atlus USA just dropped the "Loveline" part and added "Magical" to it.

I'm betting he wound up doing the same thing he did in the game and ruins his chance a few minutes later offscreen.
