- Accidental Innuendo:
- The scenes between Shin and Takurou become extremely ambiguous when the latter offers him "to extraction shadows". Once he even turns his back on him...
- And we have a scene with Megumi and Kanaru in the fifth episode, where out of context their conversation can be taken for discussion of homosexual relations.
- Awesome Music: Trinity Soul's rendition of Memories of You, arguably more awesome than the original. Even the anime's biggest detractors will admit it being one of the series' highlights.
- Complete Monster: Keisuke Komatsubara, studying the Persona phenomenon, used his own daughter, Ayane, for painful experiments until she committed suicide. Apathetic to her death, Keisuke intends to revive her to study the links between the Sea of Souls and the human world. After Ayane's spirit caused a disaster in Ayanagi City, Keisuke poses as an altruistic doctor, convinces Ryo Kanzato to sacrifice his injured little sister to save his brother Jun, and uses the operation to experiment on Jun, intending to use him later and to get revenge on the already-deceased Kanzato for leaving his investigation. Fusing with his own Persona and changing his name to Kujou Mareya, he creates the Marebito by inserting artificial Persona inside orphans, making them dependent on drugs to survive and limiting their lives, with the intention to sacrifice them in the future. Convincing them to steal the Persona of other teenagers, in a brutal method known as the Reverse Cases for outsiders, Keisuke also creates an android to spread the Shadow Extraction Ritual in order to keep a suitable reserve of potential Persona users to attack. Lacking empathy, Keisuke saw everyone—even his own children—as tools to be used in his quest for knowledge.
- Epileptic Trees: If Jun shares his body with his Half-Identical Twins sister Yuki, will his masturbation be considered Twincest?
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Ho Yay: It seems that there is much more between the guys in the chemistry show than with any of the girls, and even Shin and Jun are not immune to this, even though they are brothers, although the latter is also caused for another reason. And let's just say that all this talk about shadows is just overflowing with Homoerotic Subtext.
- Uncanny Valley:
- Kanaru can come across as this, depending on your point of view. The bionoid created by Kujou is this, too, probably intentionally, because boy, is it creepy.
- "Fish eyes" of some characters can be quite difficult to perceive. Especially it concerns Jun.
YMMV / Persona -trinity soul-
