I thought this was an action RPG for second when the protagonist attacked first enemies.

Anyway, looking pretty good. Probably the best looking Atlus title so far, dethroning Catherine and P4. It also seems like time-traveling is definitely involved and will likely be intertwined with both the plot and gameplay.

I thought it was an action RPG for a second there as well. I almost had a heart attack. Phew.

It looks really interesting - I will probably stop looking at things about this game from here on in. I like to go into the things I love blind.

I love what I see. And hear - the music is fitting.

Yeah. I'm excited. :DDD

@Akanbe- You mentioned a page back about fusing Kikuri-Hime and her having Diarahn. Did you mean Diarama? I'm looking at the fusion right now and she definitely doesn't have Diarahn. I think Diarama would be a good thing to have at this point in the game. You said Uzume learned a Mana Aid ability? I think I'll hold off doing this fusion until she learns that so I can transfer it to Kikuri-Hime.

Yeah Diarama.  I couldn't think of the right name when I posted that.  Yes, the last skill Uzume gets (level 23 i think) will refill her MP by 10% of her max everytime the moon phase changes.  Only works while she's in your active party.  For the moment, at least, it's amazing.  Her MP rarely drops below 80% and allows to keep everyone else healed up without wasting mana.  I actually never went through with the fusion.  I was thinking about it this morning, but Uzume has so many good skills (atm) that just transferring two is disappointing.  Diarama would be lovely but since Uzume is around 28 now and I don't need Diarama at the moment as I've been steamrolling the bosses to this point.

Very interesting. You've really leveled her up far. What other skills do you have on her? I have media, agi, mabufu, mazan, rakunda and some other passive stuff. Maybe I should keep her around.

Nothing special.  I'd like to replace her, but after buffing her mag/lu with mitama, I don't feel the need for Kikuri-hime anymore.  Uzume has Bufu, Mazan, Dia, Media, 10% health bonus, Mana refill on katatsuchi change, Seduce, and Hama.  I'm one level away from getting a
Code: [Select]
Daisoujou which I may use to replace somebody.  I'm not 100% sure if I want to summon him yet because I don't know if I have enough good skills to pass onto him yet.  Might fuse a dis with a naga to put Zionga and Agilao on him, but not sure.

Also Faded, I don't know how hard it would be to do this on hard difficulty, but in the 2nd Kalpa of the Amala network there is a guy who just gives you 250,000 macca if you reach him.  I'm on normal and used estoma liberally while running from everything else, but I was able to make it there and back on my 3rd try.  Pretty set with macca for awhile I think.

Not sure if I will finish the Kalpas, but after seeing the 2nd Kalpa cutscene and confirming a suspicion, it makes me want to see what happens.

Surprised there's so much positive feedback about no random battles. I'm okay with it too, but it's kind of series tradition at this point(like Kaneko artwork, also oddly absent...).

Dungeons and gameplay do look great, it's the art design I'm skeptical about.

I'm still bothered about the whole deal with voice acting in a SMT, and no Kaneko is a shame but I think I can live with that.

To me she just looks like Ellen from Persona 1 and 2. (specifically 2)

I'm wondering why they couldn't get Kaneko for SMTIV. It seems he's usually the head of the art, but never actually draws it anymore.

I'm not gonna lie, and this probably because I haven't been playing these games for very long, but I honestly didn't notice that the art was different until you guys pointed it out. I think it looks very good and very fitting.
