He's probably in his 30s, in anime land that's practically decrepit.

Being 25 makes you an old maid in Anime land; remember how Sae was pressured to get a man since she's approaching 25? Being thirty and unmarried is practically a death sentence.

Thats decrepit for women usually.

I remember a teacher, who is an African American woman once told us of a moment where one of her relatives told her she was getting older & so she should really get married.

She was in her early 20ís at that point.

Well, he apparently has a kid, so he isn't that unlucky on that department.

As long as they offer me the option to play the original PS 2 version as well. Am I the only person who prefers Chie's original voice?
That isnt happening, Atlus is non union and they wont be able to get her back. Kanji, Naoto and possibly Rise also would be replaced if there is new voice work.

Feb 7th 2020 at 5:22:12 PM

Rise and Kanjis V As cane back just for Fullbody. So who knows.

Have we ever seen Kanji with his new look in anything besides the Golden Epilogue?

He looks amazing.

I was told he redyed his hair for no reason and all the rest of them also restyled their hair to look as much like their original look as possible.

They show up using their Golden designs before switching to their old designs.

In any event they need to put P 4 G and SMTIVA and the Devil Survivor games on Switch. We all know P 4 G would rake in the dough. I've been waiting for this for fucking years.

Here's hoping.

Some others want them to put the P2 Duology on Switch. I'm indifferent there. I love Innocent Sin but it's an old game and easy to emulate.

Mainly the idea was about introducing a new generation to Persona. Want a new generation of P2 or P4 fans. I'm certainly okay with those things.

We can argue about Kanji's sexuality all over again. I know I was late to the party but I wasn't part of a wave of Persona fans. I was just the newbie chatting with all you old fans. On the Switch we might get a torrent of newbies.

P 4 G is mostly likely the best move financially I think.

I'm sure there's load of people with the PS 4/Switch combination that want to play it.

I will maintain that the moral of Yukiko's SL was meant to be 'you had what you were searching for all along', but having her suddenly want to do the thing she hated was maybe the wrong way to go about it.

Yeah that's clearly the intent, but it's horribly handled.

The intent is clear, as you said. I think that's shown well when she talks about how the kitchen staff all helped her and interacting with the lady from her family's inn.

They probably should have just kept the focus on that.

Still though nothing really wrong with broadening your horizons.

She could have taken a little trip to see whatís out there before returning home.

I also never had any problem with Yukiko's SL. Yukiko Best Girl. (in the party)

Of course, others might raise the objection Yukiko is part of a pattern. Rise also is like "I wanna change my life" but then realizes she had what she wanted all along, too. I forget if the others are similar....

I always thought that was the intent of her link, and that people massively missed the point of it.

It's the same deal with people who falsely thought Kanji and Naoto were homosexual and transgender respectively.

I'd say it's one of the early instances of Values Dissonance in this series before it came to a head in Persona 5.

I think Kanji's arc is completely universal. There's nothing uniquely Japanese about gender roles and insecure masculinity.

But between his clearly gay dungeon and Yosuke constantly being very clearly homophobic, I can't blame anyone for thinking Kanji's arc is about being gay. I'm pretty sure he's bisexual, anyway. Or just Naoto-sexual.

Gender roles are a lot more enforced in Japan. They've been less and less emphasized here in the West recently.

A boy wanting with traditionally feminine hobbies isn't really treated as unusual here, at least past elementary school.

But you are right.

I think people got what the point of Yukiko's S Link was just fine, they just thought it was unsatisfying and tied into a broader pattern of the game saying "you should just do what society/the people around you expects you to do".

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.

[up]Indeed, and that's why Persona 5 goes in the opposite direction with its themes of rebellion against a corrupt society: Don't be what they expect you to do.
