    1. she likes buchimaru-kun and that's rly adorable
    2. she trained in aikido psyduck me up girl
    3. her voice is just so pleasant like she could read me the phone book and i would be soothed

    So just gonna stick to main and side characters and not villains here because that's too obvious. As far as side characters and confidants go though, I'm not a fan of Ohya at all. She's just really annoying and rattatay and honestly, I would have preferred Lala-chan as a confidant rather than her. However, since Lala is a drag queen, I think Atlus would have psyducked that up, so I guess I should be grateful that what we got from Lala already wasn't a gross stereotype. That might be for the better. But yeah Ohya, idk. I think she's a common fan dislike anyway, so I'm saying nothing new here.

    For main characters, even though I tried to be nice about her earlier, I'm just not a big Makoto fan. I've been trying to like her more lately because I hate disliking a main character, especially one so popular, but I just could never get interest in her. Her confidant just doesn't do anything for her and I don't feel like it tells me all that much about HER and I don't see how she grows or benefits from it, plus it's really boring. You can date all the girls you have a confidant with in this game, but Makoto's feels like it's literally only set up for that purpose rather than her personal growth, which I don't really like. My big issue with Makoto is honestly fanon, though. People see her as this badass biker chick who doesn't take anyone's muk and I mean. She was like that during her awakening and then doesn't progress from there. Her awakening is great! But that's it. She stops there. She, if anything, regresses from that point on. She's still very hesitant going forward to other palaces, always backpedaling and posing the 'should we do this?' question, which I suppose you could argue is a good thing, if not a bit of foreshadowing. I don't know, though. I don't see her take charge of things later in the game like she does at her peak moment there. Anything else I say about her would be a large spoiler and just make me go on even more, so I'll rest my case. It's not all her fault, though. Atlus just doesn't know how to write their girls; they all suffer from it. Hell, even some of the boys.

    Ahhhh I'm sorry, you didn't ask for a novel dlfjadklf. You throw P5 into a question, and that's what you get I guess? lmao

      I only really like JRPGs, some platformers, and some action/adventure titles. Don't care much for any type of shooter or horror game. It's just really dependent on mechanics, I suppose.

      Not so much lately. USUM put a sour taste in my mouth.

      Oh god... I actually joined here for fan fiction and Pokemon Special manga scans, because I got word that PC's writing section was better than Serebii's and that someone had those scans posted. Nowadays, I don't write fan fics and I don't read PokeSpe anymore -- and you can just buy them in book stores. What a world. I'm half lying, though. I still write.

      Lumping these all together, but I prefer console, have never done PC gaming, and I don't own a PC anyway. I'm on a Mac Book, which as I understand, isn't really good for gaming.

      Quote:
      This is the first forum you joined or you've been at other ones before this one?
      I joined Serebii maybe a week or so before I joined here back in 2008. I quit logging on there shortly after, lol. I joined various other forums between then and now, as well.

      Quote:
      Why "sydian" as a name?
      Okay so this actually has a story. I was playing Pearl and was hatching a Scyther egg and all the while, I was about to join a friend's forum to mod some of the sections. This was before I was a mod here and I wanted a cool name that a moderator would have, right? lmao Scyther hatched and I made up Sydian for its name and thought to myself oh wow. That's it. That's my username. I ended up changing it to Sydian here as well and though I've cycled through a few usernames since then, I always end up coming back to it. lol

      How can you run newer games on your pc, do they lag?

      Good question... I like a lot of things. Usually anything that's got cheese on it is a way to my heart, though.

      What would you do if you were stuck in a part of an game?
      Leave it alone for like two years, come back to it, beat that part in a few minutes, then binge play for seven hours. It's happened. lol

      Quote:

      Villains tend to be more compelling. And after all, they're the hero in their view.

      Out of what I've played? Hm. A Series of Unfortunate Events for GBA was pretty bad. I thankfully don't tend to buy games that are really bad, but that was a gift many moons ago...it was atrocious.

      Definitely not Persona 5. Not at all.

      Okay I know I said I don't like shooters, but I made an exception for Jet Force Gemini because it's really fun and has great music and it's hard as balls, but I love it anyway. Favorite RareWare game, for sure.

      I'm telling you, you don't want to engage in P5 conversation with me. It results in a published novel lmao.

      Okay so like. It's not DONE, so I can't say yay or nay on it, but it's definitely made for people that enjoyed the game, imo. I think that if you were to try to go into the anime and use that as your source for getting the P5 experience, it would be a mistake. Not that it's bad, but I think it isn't a good introductory piece. I would play the game first and then go through the anime, which is still airing ofc. If you can't play the game or don't have the time for it (which I totally understand; I clocked out at around 130 hours when I finished) I would still recommend finding a playthrough to watch on YouTube before diving into the anime. You just miss a lot of context and such if you go only the anime route. And I think the anime foreshadowing comes on a little too strongly.

      Uhhh I identify as a human disaster. I think I've finally found my comfort zone with being nonbinary and using they/them pronouns, however when I look back at my life, I tend to go through like. Big chunks of feeling more male or female. I think I just got out of a very long male chunk bc I haven't minded femininity and she/her as much lately. But you can virtually call me by any pronouns and I'm pretty unbothered, really.

        What do you like about Georgia compared to Alabama?
        What don't you like about it?

        And for a Persona question:

          And for a Persona question:
          As someone thinking about getting into the series, what's the best way to do so?
          I mean I've always been close enough to Georgia so on one hand, it's not a big deal, but like. I don't know where the psyduck anything is and it's really frustrating, especially for someone like me that doesn't like to drive. I just kind of sit around the apartment applying for jobs and playing Kingdom Hearts. lol But living in Atlanta, it's more LGBT friendly which is already way better than basically the entirety of Alabama (bar Birmingham, anyway).

          As far as getting into Persona, I'm probably not the best person to ask. I started with 5 and I have been working my way backwards, but in going from 5 to 4, that's when you would realize the massive difference in gameplay which may or may not appeal to you. If you're like me and you can easily fall back into how older JRPGs can be, I'd say the order you go doesn't matter entirely. They're like Final Fantasy in that they're separate on their own and don't have much to do with one another aside from easter eggs and such. Having only played 4 and 5 though, I would...maybe suggest going with 4 first? Because it will make you get into 5 and have a sigh of relief. I don't think it's saying too much to mention that there are simple things that are absent in 4 that are present in 5, like a place to save and leave the dungeon on every floor in 5 as opposed to absolutely nothing in 4, unless you have an item to leave. It's a little frustrating. As far as anything 3 and older, I can only go on hearsay. 3 seems to generally be very well liked, but the mechanics sound frustrating. 2 is also very well received, though it's split between two games, but apparently it works well. I've heard to skip the first game entirely unless you just want to play all the Persona titles.

          ...None of this word vomit probably helps lmfao. I tried???

          God I feel like I do one of those like. At least once every few months now. Those vocaroo clips from long ago probably are gone now, sadly. I've read that thing enough to have favorite parts though, so each reading feels a little less authentic in my reactions, sadly.
