P3P with P3:FES Cutscenes Guide

Hey duders and duderettes!

Persona 3 Portable is a great version of P3, but it does have one serious flaw in that it no longer has all of the great anime cutscenes that were included in the PS2 versions of the game. I wanted to make a guide to help out people who are playing P3P but still want to see the scenes. It's probably a bit late at this point, but it's possible that some of you out there are doing a playthrough in anticipation of P4G. A quick note before we begin: a solid amount of this stuff won't really make much sense if you're playing as the female lead since the story is a bit different and the dialogue options change, but you can still get the gist of the story if you watch stuff, say, at the end of the day it happens.

Basic overview of the guide structure: I'll put the date and time of day of the cutscene at the top of each post. Then, inside of a highlight spoiler, I'll put the line or lines of dialogue immediately preceding the cutscene. Below that, there will be a link to the scene on Youtube as well as a stopping point in the video. Sorry in advance about 240p, the videos I link to aren't from my youtube account. As an example, a day on the guide will look like this:

------------------------------------------------------------------

mm/dd/yy - Time

Junpei: "Something about girls."

------------------------------------------------------------------

Each dashed line represents a new day, so keep a lookout for the busier days, like 4/8, 11/4, and so on. With that out of the way, let's get to the guide!

That's the end of the main game! Thanks to GameFAQs user Riou_McDohl, whose game script I used to get the dialogue preceding the cutscenes, and Youtube
user pspgameboycutscenes, whose videos I linked to throughout the guide.
Hope you guys will find this useful!
