It's that time again!
Fuuka Joins the Fray!
> Pretty confident in assuming at least part of the idea of the investigation sections of P4 came from that first week of June where you're supposed to help research the ghost story (Even if it is a disappointingly inconsequential part of the game)
> Two characters with white lipstick are two too many. Ick.
> When you sneak into the school at night, it's super fun messing with Yukari, not only with dialogue options but with trying to go anywhere besides where you're supposed to. Best is going to the bathroom.
> Though their designs aren't particularly clever, the sense of scale the game achieves with the Emperor and Empress shadows is amazing. Too bad the fight is such a throw-away introduction to Fuuka's abilities.
> Speaking of which, I still find it strange that she just happens to suddenly know the purpose of an Evoker. I'm going on the assumption that she just happened to watch Akihiko and gang fight some Shadows as they were leaving Tartarus.
> Going further down that path, if Atlus is so insistent that Persona 3 and 4 take place in the same world, then are the Evokers even really needed? I can see them helping some to awaken to their Persona, but every time you call on it? (If this is addressed in PQ, no spoilers please!)
> Fuuka's just an okay character in my opinion. She doesn't have a particularly strong personality, and her VA while decent enough is clearly out of her league alongside the other characters' performances. At least her scarf is pretty fabulous!
> While Mitsuru is an annoying hardass outside of battle, she's quite the badass *in* battle. Her critical strike is just a joy to watch, and she doesn't mess around when it comes to exploiting enemy weaknesses like the others.
> I really like the side story of Stalker Girl vs. Jerkface. Probably because it's pretty much the only non Social Link NPC story that's even mildly entertaining to follow. One of the things that P4 did amazingly well. I genuinely want to keep abreast of what happens to almost every NPC you encounter in that game.
> Then of course we have the other major plot development that happens with the introduction of the Supervillain Trio. Lots to discuss about them, but I'll go ahead and save it for months that they're more established.
