[P5 Robot AU]
Don’t laugh, it could happen to you
Hell yeah it is
It’s probably thanks to this that there are a lot of gay subtlety between Akechi and Joker in P5R
Ren: “Okay, I can be dense, so I gotta ask… Do you wanna fuck or are you trying to kill me?”
@ultragiverofstudents Aw, of course. I love doing these, and I haven’t gotten a lot of them lately, so thank you for sending me some!
No matter how intelligent or mature she is, Makoto’s still a kid. She has childish fears, and she enjoys childish things. If you romance her, she’s nervous to even hold Ren’s hand. She’s reckless, and she makes mistakes. Makoto is still a kid, and ATLUS doesn’t treat her as if she’s an adult. I really appreciate that because I think a lot of fiction treats those smart, mature characters as if they weren’t still children.

Well, I’ve been getting back into Persona 5 (especially after Royal) and am now officially dying because I fell so hard for these two… (/w\)
I’ve been posting these pictures on my Instagram for a while now, thought might as well post them here too. ,xD
Heavy Persona 5 spoilers underneath
Sometimes I just wake up and think about how Akechi deadass tried to make Akira’s death look like a suicide. It was all part of his big plan of the public loving him and getting revenge on Shido that the leader gets cornered and Akechi legit shooting him in the face will be covered. I just think…killing someone is one crazy thing, but making it look like a suicide and not caring at all is on another level. I know Akechi isn’t dumb and he could’ve shot him any time during Sae’s palace, but didn’t know the rest had caught onto his plan. Hell in the Anime it gets even worse when he fakes sadness and says I had wanted to disband the Phantom Thieves, but I never wanted this to happen after Futaba looses Akira’s signal.
Maybe out of all the things Akechi did this is the one I hate this very well written character most for.
Everyone forgets one thing on their Should have been added to Persona 5 Royal list, maybe the most important thing out of all
A scene where Joker has to take off his coat or just does it so we can finally close the debat off Is his shirt underneath sleeveless or not? Ever since the Mementos Mission Mangaka Rokuro Saito once drew him like that, but nobody else did before.
I bet he is…another commission for the characters from Persona 5, more to come…
comments on youtube
I’ve already seen other comments talking about Ace Attorney, but it’s highly recommended if you want more satire of Japan’s justice system. One thing I’ll add is it really relates to what you said about defense attorneys in Japan: the idea of Phoenix Wright as the loveable underdog hero comes across as weird to some westerners, who are used to defence lawyers being demonized. In Japanese fiction, it’s more common for prosecutors and judges to be demonized, and… it should be obvious why from the subject matter of this video. The fact that all the playable lawyers in the series get basically no respect in both the court and daily live seems pretty accurate too. (The one time Edgeworth takes over as defense, he’s so surprised at the drastic change in attitude that he wonders if there’s a giant “kick me” sign attached to the defense’s bench)
13:37 Not only that, he’s willing to go out of his way to get arrested again and endure all that once more, just as part of their plan.
I think the term “Enzai” showed up in Ace Attorney, pretty late into the series. In Dual Destinies someone has a plush rhino that comes from a compaign against it. It got localized as “Bum Rap Rhiny”, but from playing the Japanese demo I think the equivalent phrase was “Enzai yamate kudaSAI” (it being a rhino is a pun of “sai” meaning rhinoceros)
The whole issue with Maruki’s reality I think also relates to abuse victims and those who’ve suffered tragedy. Maruki wants to help by making it so those traumatic experiences never happened. It’s true that what happened to all these people was awful and shouldn’t have happened, but I feel Joker and thw Thieves’ position is that pretending it never happened would be an insult to all the growth and strength they’ve shown in moving past their hardships.
Here I thought Akechi’s “99% Conviction rate” comment was an exaggeration. Man, this video put Sae’s palace into perspective for me.
Loved the video Lady, I was looking forward to it and I was most definitely not disappointed!
On the game side of things, Joker is one of those characters that shows subtle consideration for the Player and Character dissonance. In many RPG’s the writers will either try to give the protagonist a full character and personality without taking the actions of the Player into account or vice versa, making them a blank slate with no interesting character traits in order for the role-play aspect to be front and center. While either extreme does work for certain games, I’ve found a lot of other games try to provide a middle ground between the two, which ends up pleasing very few in the end.
However, what the developers of Persona 5 did with Joker provides a very good example of that middle ground protagonist. He isn’t just a blank slate for us to insert ourselves into, as he possess’ his own backstory that’s integral to the plot along with motivations and wants that gives his actions and our choices as the player meaning. If we as the Player are able to understand Joker and see what he as an individual is trying to do or wants in the end, then we are able to see his story come full circle as opposed to ending it early and getting a “false” sense of satisfaction whether that be through the “Bad”, “Selfish”, “Good”, or “Ideal” endings. Only by seeing who Joker is and how he continually takes the long road towards freedom do we finally receive the “Real” ending of Royal. A very similar idea to what Persona 4 did with it’s “True” ending but more character driven on Persona 5’s part, I’ve personally found anyway.
Also, you’re video has definitely made me think when it comes to the issues present in Japan. I thought I knew how harsh the Japanese justice system was but I had no idea they were allowed to hold someone for 23 days without having to file charges. That is a very terrifying prospect on top of the prosecutors ability to block access to your lawyer, as well as the mental and physical abuse of their suspects to force confessions out of them. It really shows how they received that 99.3% conviction rate…
