Kexlizard said:Chie already had two fairly strong pairings in the story (the Yousuke one and the full blown yuri with Yukiko). Let alone the fact Chie is, at best, the most awkwad of the relationships.
I think it's gonna be Chie, but I'm hoping for Yukiko or Rise.
But the ultimate would be bromance for Yosuke.

BitchMaster said:I'm sorry but what? How exactly did you miscontrued my post to mean I thought that they were canon relationships? They are all relationships you could "imply" from the events but none have true official backing. I never said otheriwse, please don't put words in my mouth. In fact, I explicitly began my post by saying P4 didn't had anything official like the triangle relationship Yukiko, Aigis and the MC had in Persona 3 (which was made official in FES).
MokonaBuny said:I voted no one. Keep the pairings to the fans' imaginations.P3 actually made the Minato-Yukari-Aigis love triangle canon, why should the P4 anime not play with a pairing? The game even gives main-story MC/Rise scenes though they're brushed off as simply Rise being Rise.
Even though I say that it is hard to pick one. If we even extend it to non-playable characters the choice gets harder. I'll go with Rise because Yukiko and Chie...well, the Prince scene should answer what I think of those two. And both Naoto and Yosuke had obvious crushes from the start.
I'm sorry but that's just absurd. In P3 case, the romance was heavily implied due to the beach event with Yukari, then it was further established as FACT thnx to P3 Fes. Unless P4 will have some sort of "Fes" sequel, it'll remain open-ended in the romance department. The beach event has a strong impact that was not found in P4 because it was PART OF THE STORYLINE, did P4 MC have any significant event where he was all alone with Yukiko and on the verge of kissing her if they were not to be interrupted? Nope!
The same applies for the rest of the so-called "official" couplings, such as MC x Rise, Yosuke x Chie, Kanji x Naoto, Teddie x Rise, Kanji x Rise. Kanji seems to have a crush on Naoto but does Naoto CARE about him? No! Rise loves MC but does MC officially respond to her feelings? NO!
Yosuke and Chie were often grouped together but do they CARE about each other or have any event that develops their relationship? Nada! Kanji and Rise fit those animu cliche about "love-hate" relationship but one thing to keep in mind is that those animu cliche have following events that tie things together, P4 does not. The same applies to Rise x Teddie, just because she hugged him cuz she was worried about him doesn't mean that she wanna jump him. As for Yukiko x Chie, do you guys ever think about female friendship or is it just trendy nowadays to lump girls you find hot together in a homo-erotic relationship just for FAP sake?
Anyway, I don't think those evidences are solid enough to prove anything... IIRC, Akiko x Mitsuru was even more implied than those silly couples in P4 and guess what? They didn't even end up together, as shown by both Fes & even Trinity. They were only "friend" status; so how some people tried to pass their subjective delusions as fact is just beyond my comprehension... Want another "canon" couple? Junpei x red head girl, that's what I call "canon".

azzyzx said:Yuu doesn't officially befriends Yukiko until the next main-story investigation aka Tatsumi's arc. It's the same reason why Star hasn't been unlocked either even though Kuma is part of your team from the start. But at the very least two two start automatically, Emperor and Fortune Links make you jump through hoops even though they are main characters (Fortune Link even requires you to have two maxed social stats).
Yuu still haven't got the priest arcana , does mean it's going tob YuxYukiko
On the other hand Magician (Yousuke), Chariot (Chie) and Lovers (Rise) all start pretty much as soon as the characters join up the party.

I voted Chie (she's adorable, my favorite of the girls to ship) but I'd be fine with Rise considering she's the Lovers Arcana. (My preferences with P3(P) were MC/Yukari and FemC/Shinjiro, if that means anything.)
I also like the idea of Kanji/Naoto but given their social link events in the game with MC("Yuu"), I don't see that happening. ^^;

Never understood the popularity of Yukiko, so I concur here with Tanrim. Her "hidden feelings" were lame and not relatable to me... Her SLink is extremely similar to Fuuka from P3. It felt as though, I was doing that all over again, but this time around, it was a bit more dull, because Fuuka atleast, was interesting/had other qualities/hobbies besides "persona". Yukiko's also incredibly depressing. As for her relationship with the MC: I will never see it, due to her not being able to express herself fully. It also just seems like a big chore to deal with Yukiko in her SLink love - that's perhaps me just being biased, though.
I liked Rise for different reasons: I can relate to her: "No one sees the real me" thing and her past before being an Idol, so I could understand the sadness. Also enjoyed her optimistic personality in the game, got a bit too depressing with the story, so thought it was nice to see her still be a bit spunky during the November/December time of the game. As for her relationship with the MC: It's probably one of the shippings that people can "see" happening. In the game, her attraction came off as too "flirtatious" with no real reason, so I can agree that in the game, she went over board with the "love" and came off as a bit pushy.. I think the anime is doing a better job to make the love for Narukami natural/genuine, but I guess it's cause, now he talks/has a mind of his own. Though - I still prefer if he was just "loved" by everyone and nothing actually happens with one girl.
Don't know how anyone would dislike Chie, she's probably the most likeable in the game. She's also one of the most realistic,- I'd say her and Rise are the most relate-able. As for her relationship with MC I feel as though that was taken away during Ai's episode, in how she automatically called him a friend, which was genuine and not "embarrassingly" trying to cover it up - basing off the anime. But for me personally in the game, I just see it more as a friend-zone...Never really saw it as anything more, which is a shame.
I like Naoto for being interesting/different. I also enjoyed her SLink since it wasn't as dull as some....But, I don't see a romantic relationship like most fans see between her an Narukami. It's more like admiration to eachother, than anything else... I personally think her popularity is a bit weird, but it's certainly less shocking to me than Yukiko's.
If anything, Yukiko and Rise always seemed to be the two to get pushed onto MC in the game, so that's why most votes are with those two(sometimes Naoto due to popularity). Even in the true end, both Rise and Yukiko where all over MC while Chie/Naoto were busy not being infatuated by the guy who saved Inaba, lol.
With all that said my answer is probably still no one. More mystery, less romance.
I agree/continue to say, he'll end up with no one in the anime. Rise's social link to love is missing the "I'm going to marry this man" - line. Yukiko didn't even get to feed him terrible-ness alone/talk about her boring life. He didn't get to defend Chie from her "old classmate" making fun of her "bro" qualities, yet. I doubt they will trigger anything from Naoto either..
Of course, things can change if Narukami gets one of the girls in the Kings Game instead of the stupid Teddie/Yosuke picks. And if they add the "picks" during the Cultural Festival Swimsuit contest....I doubt they will add christmas eve alone with any of the girls. There's also the fact that he's only in Inaba for a year. So without obvious favoritism, "No One" route is the way to go, but with a bit of "YuxChie, YuxYukiko, YuxRise and YuxNaoto" scenes that won't progress into a "romantic" relationship and is only there to make the "shippers" giggle and jizz.
