To celebrate me finally beating this awesome game, I decided to fill out this meme by VGCG. [link]
Be warned, this meme and my commentary on it has some serious spoilers! Additional commentary on the various panels may be found below:
1. I dislike the name "Yuu Narukami" :/ I would have loved to refer to him as "Shouma Kozuka," but then nobody else would have known who he was. "Souji Seta" seemed like a nice middle ground, so that's how I'm referring to him here.
2. Gah, was this ever a tough decision! Chie and Naoto remind me of parts of myself I would like to improve, while Ayane reminds me of where I've been. Chie was my girlfriend, but Ayane was very close! Loved Naoto even when I thought she was a particularly girly man. <3
3. I couldn't help but love Mitsuo's retro-styled boss (especially with those menus and pixels!). And who doesn't love bosses with giant eyes?
5. If this question refers to game mechanics, I was annoyed when skill changes sometimes didn't change your skills to very good ones. There was also the matter of determining which Personas to fuse when you have lots of awesome ones. But those wouldn't have made interesting panels. :/
6. For Morooka, his jerkiness was proven to me when he failed to give a nice response to "Nice to meet you." >( As for Sayoko, I still don't get why she thinks flirting with me is more important than her job...
7. It was just too much for me.
8. Even the fox thinks she's foxy...
9. If all goes well, you might see "Cat Days of Summer" soon. I mean, how can he spend all day petting a cat...? Not sure why I felt like putting Kanji and Naoto in this panel, but at least it's a silly running gag.
10. And this is why I don't support Yosuke/Chie.
11. When I first saw the video, the thrusting guy reminded me of Yosuke. Things got weirder from there.
12. Couldn't resist the challenge of coming up with my own Persona. Now who the heck is Brigid? She is an Irish goddess/Christian saint, depending on what you believe. As a goddess, she presides over poetry, smithing, and fertility, hence the three heads. The fire over her heads also relates to this (i.e., the fire of inspiration, the fire of the forge, and the fire of life). The thing on her forehead is a Brigid's Cross, traditionally used to bless households and protect them from fire. Her arms were based off the forms of traditional British corn dollies. These "dollies" were used in ancient times as places where the spirits of the corn would be kept over the winter. One such dollie was revered by families as the goddess herself during the festival of Imbolc. As an American with mostly Irish ancestry, I found this all very fascinating to research, so please excuse the wall of text.
