I’m about 120 hours in and only in November because I decided to put the game on Hard mode, which was really rewarding probably for the first 70 hours, but I’m pretty ready to be done with it. I love a lot about the game and I’m CERTAIN, as with all Persona games, I’ll come away from it feeling, ultimately, good about it. But I’m probably just stuck in the rift all of these games have because its daily structure affects its storytelling and doesn’t always mean for well-paced or even well-written story all of the time. I’m probably just CURRENTLY salty because the Okumura palace was boring and I died too many times on Hard Mode, so don’t mind me.
It’s completely fucked up that me and Ryuji can’t kiss, despite Ryuji asking me constantly, outright, to kiss. There’s a line Ryuji gives if you suggest you go back to your place to plan something, saying (paraphrasing), “You know all that’ll happen if we end up back in your room is we’ll end up eating candy and playing video games, that’s just how it is with us”, with a sigh and a smile as if it’s something he’s so resigned to but also comforted by, and I want to be that boy’s wife, in game.
That being said, I did just get to know Akechi a bit more. You know, I’ve always known that P5 Protag was born, destined to be slapped in the mouth once every 5 minutes, and now I understand by whom.
pick makoto if u real tho
