Hoo boy, what can I say? Sam Jaz
's vision of Minato is one that really takes a look at how powerful the P3 protaganist really is, not only in terms of Persona strength but also his mentality. He is quietly insane in the best possible way - which has caught many readers off-guard, labeling him as a GodModeSue
However, Minato does go through a whole realm of development, so calling him that doesn't do this fic the justice it deserves. What we have here is a work that decided to cut loose and push the boundaries of the universe, blending together outside influences, resulting in something quite unique. While it is, admittedly, slow to start out, it quickly evolves into a narrative drenched in Rule Of Cool
, with some interesting, seemingly small tweaks here and there that soon spiral into massive, well executed plot twists.
The writing has a Beige Prose
quality to it, making for quick, rapid reading that can be quite engrossing, and the story relishes in how it can make each moment more over the top and dramatic than the previous ones.
Even if you think you know the story of Persona 3, you won't see what's coming. Definitely recommended.
