Just had a thought- why does no one bow in this, let alone most games? That is what they do in Crazy Land, uh Great Nipon, right? Is this the localisation team again or perhaps jap teens are just too cool for all that stuffy tradition? Yeah, I know, no one ever looks japanese either but they still eat disgusting japanese food.

Oh and Nanako did it. She goes into the tiny TV in the living room and no one would expect a female let alone a little girl. I'm so right.

I can see there's gonna be some downtime now that you beat Yukiko's shadow. But that's not a bad thing.

why don't Jeff and Vinny trade off with Ryan and Brad for the endurance runs just so nobody gets burnt out???  Then after a couple hours switch back.

why does the only black person in the game have to be the "pusher man"???

He's not black, he's Japanese like everyone else.

Chie is on the roof, after school.
I says it again
Chie is on the roof, after school and Yukiko is on the first floor.

I'm glad Yukiko had that laughing fit because seriously, at that tofu part I was like man I think I liked evil Yukiko better :/... She felt like such a downer... But I guess that can't be helped since someone just tried to kill her and all. But still... There's just something... I dunno

Hm, I think they film multiple episodes a day and then they stop shooting once they reach a save spot. I think that could explain why this episode is so short.

Oh and Vinny, Yukiko will be very useful in the upcoming battles. She should be your top healer ^_^.

It's good to be back to a dialogue heavy section of the game.  They tend to make for funnier shows.

Who wrote the script for this! Must have been on some sort of drugs, the whole classes scene was pointless and far to long! Makes for great commentary tho.

Haha, poor Teddie. Yosuke is not a fan of those finger movements.

Even though P4's party members are all better than the ones in P3(other than Junpei. He was pretty cool.), Yukiko manages to be completely forgettable. Oh sure, she's the best healer/magic caster by far, but she has no personality and a dull s-link. The laughing fit thing is literally the only way the writers tried to give her any personality beyond "that one chick who hangs around Chie." Luckily the game doesn't shove her non-personality in your face as much once you get more team members.

And yes, the TVland booze shop is finally accessible. Yosuke gets an okay weapon out of it, although you'll get better fairly quickly...then again, having the best weapons is extremely negligible, especially if you like having money.

Okay guys, don't fight the Coronation King unless you have some items that raise the whole party's evade/hit. Rampage will rape you.

Thats because you don't have any spells that do it for all characters right now.

And Yukiko is on the first floor near the announcements.

Nanako is actually Alma in disguise. That explains everything.

I hope Atlus is sending you guys a lifetime supply of catgirls for doing this. After watching this series I'm buying the game and the last JRPG I played was Phantasy Star II.

This is coming a few episodes late but I just got caught up. Whoever told you that Yukiko's shadow is the hardest in the game is speaking from their own experience(s.) In my personal experience the hardest boss in the game is the final boss of void quest, followed by the boss of the next dungeon for you guys. Yukiko's shadow barely ranks in difficulty, maybe 5th... maybe.

The main problem with Yukiko (speaking from personal experience), is going into the battle under-leveled. I agree there are definitely harder bosses in the game.

Plus the thing about Persona4 is that you can bite it in any  random battle if you don't have the right persona equipped.

Oh thats understandable. But that becomes less of a worry when you revisit those dungeons at higher levels. Especially for quests. Mainly because even the spells cost one damage at some point.

All the bosses after yukiko you have access to the fox, so its pretty much impossible to be up against a wall like they were with Yukiko. Furthermore, your access to persona's and skills goes up exponentially. I mean, its probably possible to have a reflect all persona by the time you get to the 3rd dungeon if you really exploit fusions.

I played on Expert, and IMO yukiko was by far the hardest, with only 3 characters  (2 of which know almost nothing), the hardest thing is that you just have no time to buff/debuff in between healing your characters, protecting chie's weakness, AND your SP reserves are so low. For later bosses you have the 4th character, and the individual party members are much more able to contribute to the battle. Though its certainly possible that if you play on normal or easy that the other bosses would be much harder, as on those difficulties Yukiko appears to be soundly beaten just by having a decent level and DPS'ing her out. But for me vs yukiko every character was literally in the single digits of SP and 1 or 2 rounds away from dieing as the end, whereas the other bosses fell fairly easily (except the 2nd boss, but that was because I fought him WAY WAY WAY underleveled).

Well, you guys have gone and done it.  I am now playing Persona 3 as a direct result of these videos.  I've always liked JRPG's, and had heard all of the hype on P3, but didn't think I'd ever play it.  I have to say, though, I am really enjoying it, and I have you guys to thank for that.


I love this website and all of the features that you guys do.  Keep up the great work!

Watching this again. Foreshadowing in this episode! The whole "mystery" angle of this game is handled surprisingly well, all things considered!
