THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I got mixed feelings on this whole marriage drama. It brings out a side of Okamura that's hard to watch. Meanwhile, it seems Morgana and the others were able to make up.

I honestly feel bad for Okamura here. She's still young but seems like her father's arranged marriage for her is stressful. Glad she finally stood up for herself though. Her persona is dope.

Damn, that cliffhanger.

Grandfather's coffee is kind. Because of him passes away, father being strict and became huge.

"Bishoujo Kaito (heroine of justice)" is what she dreamed of.

Her father and her fiance are cooperating together in shadow world. She has no choice to fight after hearing what he said. Her persona finally awakened. And she already thought of her code name, Noir.

She used to post on the bulletin board, huh.

Father called the police to capture them because they released the notice. There's also robot police in shadow world.

A world of his utopia and there's security... After severe battle, they won. There's a real boss?

In the jail and it seems like the mysterious people have approved of him.

He shut himself off, though.

Celebrating at amusement park, and old toy like utopia in his shadow world...

It seems like that man on the phone not letting him speak the truth?

Pretty good episode.

Haru's full awakening was nice, I'm glad she got her full all out attack finish screen. It's easily the best one. I am kinda sad that they've started skipping the opening part of the all out attack then again I guess they can't fit all the phantom thieves in it cause it wouldn't make sense to show just 4 like the game does.

Fight with Okumura and the palace was largely skipped but I guess they covered all the important events including the murder at the end.

The amusement park montage was great, Makoto on the ride with her eyes closed is sooo me. XD
I'm assuming they're gonna stop once we reach the present if this is 2 cour.

Haru's reason for wanting to change her father's heart sure is a deep one. The stress that her father put her through though must have been immense but im glad that she managed to awaken her persona. The fight against Okamura was pretty well done and did an excellent job of showing how frantic that fight was. But what was supposed to be a successful mission that would have revealed new data sure ended tragically. Poor Haru though who was looking forward to reconcile with her father.

Still like this better than the game considering don't even remember how it was in the game. Haru's awakening was pretty cool and the bossfitght was pretty well done, just the same thing all-out attack looks very bland. Interested about Haru's response cause in game it looked strange (again the whole arc was rushed i think).

I like how they've added Futaba and Haru to the OP/ED! Pacing was really good this ep, seems to flow much better than the early series. Still wondering how many eps this will end up being since we're so far from the end. Looks like we're totally skipping over Mishima's turmoil too.

I'm getting sick and tired of these conflicts are getting resolved so quickly although I'm sure it's the adaptation's fault.

No one wondering how are they going to adapt all the remaining story??

Is there going to be another season (I don't thinks this option is possible) or are they going to have some extra OVAs ????

We still have 2 palaces, mementos and the final boss.

This felt way too rushed. There was no depth put into this Palace since the adaptation paced it way too quickly.

The ending was interesting but otherwise, this adaptation is crumbling the past few episodes with abysmal pacing in the palaces & poor visuals.

They added some flashbacks. Good.

Okumura's death is better here.

They wrapped up Okumura's palace, I just love the concept behind Haru's awakening. It's a pity she has to go through something like this now though, and Okumura's death wasn't really effective here, it was rushed like the rest of the episode.

Has 24 episodes been confirmed, anywhere? Because it looks like it'll need to be 30 episodes long to finish the full game. So far it has been taking 3 episodes per palace, and there are 2 left.

Nice, mini best girl, this adaptation is now somewhat worthwhile. Why they shaft the palace though, this was their chance to give Haru the spotlight she deserves.

The 24 episodes was actually deconfirmed this episode.. Every ED it shows the Ep numbers at the end, and if flipped from 24 to 25 episodes, so at minimum its going to be 25. Maybe more.

Personally, I think the anime did a decent job with Okumura's palace. The additional flashbacks that showed when Haru spoke about her grandfather's coffee shop, as well as her father, was pretty well done.

They did rush through the palace to get to fight Okumura and although it would be nice to add more depth on Okumura's palace as a whole, it was one of my least favourite palaces while playing the game and it had one too many repetitive objectives that did take some enjoyment out of the place, so I'm not too bothered by the anime skipping that part.

The boss fight, animation wise, felt smoother than Fubata's palace boss fight and the visuals held up pretty nicely too.

The start of the ED it show the number of episodes going up to at least 25 now. Knowing how much left of the game that needs to be adapted, I think the show will end between 30 - 33 episodes, depending on pace.

i believe thats exactly where they're going....finish the 2 remaining dungeons in a swift and use the final boss as the OVA like how P4 did for their true end

As somebody else pointed out, it's deconfirmed that this well end at episode 24. It will likely adapt till the end of the game, which will bring it to around 28 or 30 eps. The proof is in the ending. As you notice, the episode count is shown in dates in the end, and this episode you could see the number '25' on screen, thus deconfirming that this will end on episode 24. Seems like this will be a full adaptation.

Not even A–1 are so stupid that they would take the risk of rushing the shit out of the remaining arks in order to wrap it all up in 24 episodes and God knows this series is already rushed enough as it is

It is the adaptation's fault. This arc was the series' weakest and even then it wasn't as bad as this episode

I hope you are correct. At least they need like 6-8 eps more to fully adapt what's missing.

Well that was a crappy episode. And the visuals were godawful, but I guess everybody got used to it in the last couple of eps.
