Interesting how two girls met at young.

Short hair girl is worried because she saw her long hair girl at Mayonaka TV.

lol @ the girl with completely different personality hosting the show!!

Searching for miko girl, who hated the name "Yukiko", and found another short hair girl instead.

Banana-faced persona?? It's the two guys' turn to help her.

The reason Namikawa-san's character immediately got his persona in ep.1 because he's the chosen one? And he just got another persona!!

Wait....PERSONA CHANGE! YES! Glad they decided to keep that. Also, Pyro Jack FTW! - One of the many first personas I used in the game, good to see him. Hoping for Jack Frost next/Black Frost or Hanuman next.

Anyways, REALLY liked this episode. Shadow Chie was presented better than Yosuke's shadow, imo. May I also add, little Chie was f'en adorable.

It's really hard to not think about Hiimdaisy comic dub without watching this...."Yukiko's missing, Yukikko's missing, Yukiko's missing, YUKIKO'S MISSSING!!! ...Oh Hi Yukikko!" - lmfao

And 10/26 P4 soundtrack! My ears are ready.

I highly anticipated the multiple persona use in the anime. I never kept Izanagi with me through the whole game (dropped it after fighting Chie's shadow)

> Can't wait for Rise's and Naoto's arc..

Loved this episode, way better than the first two. B'aww, dat dog ;w;

Btw. just what kind of personality are they giving Yu/Souji/Charlie in this anime... ?
- Teddie bites him - “I’m going to cry”
- watches Yukiko’s Midnight Channel - “I wish I taped it.”
Lmao this is glorious.

Castle bits were way too rushed, not to mention they're steamrolling the hell out of those enemies, but it's still pretty great so far.

Plus fuck yeah Pyro Jack, can't wait for Jack Frost next episode, because you just know they have to use him

This show is starting to get really mundane. It's the same pattern every time. Each episode focuses on one character going through mental breakdown then MC gives them words of encouragement and all of a sudden they're better and then side character gets a persona. There's like what? 5 more characters in this show? So basically 5 more episodes of this shit? great...

The last two episodes were relatively enjoyable, the characters are likable. I haven't played the actual game before, so I'll have to see how this plays out. Really noticeable thing would be the OP/ED, actually really enjoyed them.

Onto this episode now, apparently people tend to take what their apparent images say to heart. Seriously, why the fuck do they care so much about what something claiming to be them says? ><. Is that a banana klansman...? Actually enjoying the music from this anime.

Anyhow, overall episode was decent. It really is just storyline progression, and I'm still a bit hazy on actual persona mechanics. There doesn't seem to be much room for character development, just all plot. 3.5/5

Best one so far.
I love how you can totally tell that Yu jizzed in his pants after seeing Yukiko xD. (Althought I somehow like RisexYu... D:)
The ending is very original, it seems that after Yu gets a new persona the back from one of the cards changes. More than 20 more to go...
Is it me or is the anime kind of hinting ChiexYosuke and YuxYukiko? If that's the case, I wouldn't be surprised if some fans are pissed off and others dance of joy xD
Anyways...MC's personality rocks, 'nuff said. Screw the ones who say that this is terrible.

ChieXYosuke ♥ The little fangirl in me was sure pleased.
Anyway, I really liked this episode, even though thei recover from their other side always seems a bit...odd. Then again, in the game it was completely pathetic so it's actually better than the original (at least in this aspect).
And man, I just love this OST.

I loved this episode, the flashback as awesome too.
My theory about the Social Links was also true, as you can see in the following:

Every arcana will appear in the ending as Yu create a new bond, this episode was Chariot Arcana.
This was my special fanservice, new year present.:

Moe Moe Kyun: Yukiko ver.

I love this show.

Interesting... people is never happy, maybe it's because the game is the same? if they din't follow up the game people would be upset, and if they changed something like in Valkyria Chronicles adaptation with the creation of a non existant in game love triangle people would raaaaage regardless. It's pretty hard to make an adaptation of a game with just too many options, it would take around 100 episodes or more to fully detail every aspect of it.

This is an adaptation, and I praise to how true with the game it has been so far for not creating aspects not present in game. But I encourage people that all they do is complain and cry from the adaptation is to just play the game, or wait for the new persona 4 gold comming up soon, or to just avoid the anime like AIDS.

Don't remind me of that bullshit that they tried to imply that was Valkyria Chronicles. I still haven't gotten over my trauma, given how ridiculous and horrible that thing was.

I see some people talking about the animation and such..let's put it this way.

It could be like Tales of the Abyss. Where they just messed around, changed things, and put characters in and out and people who DIDN'T play the game didn't know what the hell was going on. Hell I played that game twice and was unimpressed with the animation for those reasons e_e

But these animations are aimed at the people mostly who HAVE played the games. Adaptations of manga are much different.

Anyways, I was SO EXCITED to see Kou and Daisuke in this episode. Oh god I hope the 'balls' joke gets in there somewhere. I'll die.

And Lol @ Yosuke "NO FAIR YOU GET 2 PERSONAS?" Dude he gets like 8-10 tough shit LOL.

Ahh great episode though~ I'm just gonna anxiously await when Kanji comes into the picture and his persona episode gets shown |3 Uhu that'll be the best..~

Or better yet, play P3 or previous SMT titles if they can care less about gameplay and prefer a better plot with less redundant elements?

3. I almost fell off my chair when Yuu and Yosuke did the combo attack and it showed the picture.

It's kinda bad that my brain likes to ignore the rule of cool, but after the second I spent being happy seeing Pyro Jack, my immediate thought was 'Wait a minute, cheater, there's no way your level is high enough for that!'
If any of my posts seem odd, it's probably because I'm tired. Sorry. I have sleeping issues.

Pretty good ep.

LOL. MC said he was gonna cry after he got bitten. I was somehow anticipating whether that'd be the response he choose, and he actually did!

Seeing Nanako with her hair down while she's sleeping, to me it's looks cuter that way than it is with her regular hairstyle. They should've included that for one of her character sprites in the game. :(

Cool, multiple personae. MC sure leveled up so fast to use that Pyro Jack without having to grind so much. Hope they'll be including Jack Frost and Black Frost.

The all-out attack was Agi + Garu instead of a melee beat down? Well I guess that's cool too but I'd still like it if they just go in there and smash the hell out of that shadow boss. (But then again I don't think I notice them bringing in any new weapons after Yousuke's got confiscated)

Ah, Yosuke. Swinging swords like in a public area. How much more stupid can you get? And that's why I love him.

I also didn't expect them to let Yuu use many Persona like in the game, which makes this an even better adaption. This makes me pleased.

Yes. multiple personas was indeed a good choice, even though sillyriri said that his level not enough for it (Pryo Jack). But I think that's not a problem since we're talking about anime.

Could that be hint of Yuu joining her club? It would seem easier to make a bond with her than animating Yumi's problem...

By shit quality, you mean the stream of theanimenetwork? I saw this one, I almost missed that hair style of hers. But they actually didn't do a god job in that part, when Yu is asked to join the basketball club, It didn't even sound as an invitation. I have too agree that the pace of this anime is lacking, one time you're sad, other you're happy, just like someone else there said. But who cares, Izanagi is boss in this show, and Pryo Jack was awesome too.

Damn, how much did they grind to be able to summon Pyro Jack already!? Not even Jack Frost or Pixie!?

The clubs also makes me wonder which ones MC will join. It looks like they're going with Ayane for cultural club but what about the sports club!? I think they might be banking on the basketball team instead.

I'm pretty sure Jack Frost is a bigger icon than Pyro Jack since he's the mascot for Atlus.

Am amazed how things can be messed up so badly in only a minute. Most of the episode was fine but the Pyro Jack thing was just ridiculous. Also, him being able to summon other Persona is all well and good but him just pulling them out of his butt isn't doing it for me.

Pulling out a level 32 fire Persona against a boss that's supposed to be weak to wind and not fire is just bad. You should be level 5 at that point, if that. Stupid.

They were obviously trying to pander to Pyro Jack fans by using him, which seemed to work given the comments, but it was so badly misplaced. Could have picked a better place for it. The fact that he even had the Persona for apparently no good reason is seriously bugging me, too. If they had bothered to show him getting it in a shuffle or fusion myself I wouldn't mind but nope.

Well, whatever. Despite those issues the rest of the episode was pretty good. 3/5

Um, you guys know there this isnt actually a video game, right? So there are no levels...?

Im a little curious to weather Yu will use Pyro Jack again. He's apparently gonna have a lot of persona to go through.

They might as well include the after-battle screen so we can count how much exp they get when fighting shadows, mirite? Or rather, they should show them browsing a shop then a menu randomly pops up with the prices all listed neatly and asking them how many of each item they want.

Ayane's was a lot more fitting to the more bright attitude the whole game brings. As for those wondering about which Sports club he chooses it really wouldn't matter in the end. If they wanted they could easily show bits of both the Soccer and Basketball club's because regardless of which you choose for Sports you befriend both Kou and Daisuke. This doesn't happens in the social club S.Link where you either focus solely on Ayane or on Yumi and never meet the other.

Using all in game things and completely throwing them out. Neither extreme is good. Level should still apply to the anime even if only loosely. It's, if nothing else, a measure of proficiency. If you don't want to even go with the basics then why bother with any standards? Why stop with Pyro Jack, Yu should just pull out the best fire Persona, right?

You DO realize this is an anime right?
So you DO realize that level is NOT something that matters right?
And also, you DO realize that Yuu already have all the personas with himself DON'T you? Because this ISN'T a game, you DON'T have to fight with shadows to get Personas at the end of battle. RIGHT?
Also, why bother if they used fire or not? Wind + Fire attack combo was a WIN.
