2022.02.12 SMTV was fucken fun even with my busted joycons. Here's the dump of disjointed funny thoughts.
Oh yeah, spoilers by the way.
Young man, there's no need to feel down, I said young man,
Apparently I have more to say than usual about the cast.
It is you! I await the day he receives a canon name. I love his design. The asymmetrical hair and flower pattern on the uniform. Son tier.
Your symbiotic emotional support demon that would do literally anything for you. He is very precious. His Animal Crossing phrase is "young man". (pstump voice) 'Cause you're the last of a dying breed,
The boys in their goin' ghost form. He has infinitely long hair, making this the best character design ever.
Her dub voice has a strange inflection or something, like she's taken a dosage too much of the children's b*nadryl and is about to start hallucinating (we've all been there).
A standard anime man, but a boy. Nothing special but nothing dislikable either. I was wrong to assume he'd go nahobino with the dog, and not the fucking. Prime minister.
Everyone in town wants to fuck the chaos dilf prime minister. And are they wrong? He too is a demon and also Aogami's bro.
Do not be fooled. This is not Ryuji Sakamoto Persona 5. Rather, Tokyo's most disliked cryptid-sighting Yout*ber. Well he is not my fave. In this house we don't go law route. Freckles, acne, or both? You decide. I think both, and it's a bold choice.
Dazai's comfort milf. I like her screen eyes, like Meow Animal Crossing.
This is not Yasunori Katou or Raidou. A neutral boy. Is definitely fucking his symbiote demon lady.
The tiddy demon that is in love with Yakumo. She has all my sympathy.
Aogami's annoying mpreg daughter.
There are only 2 things in this world that quench my thirst: rollin' up a big dang katamari and fusing some fucking demons. This gameplay is so satifying. There are other fun things you can do too, like Sonic boosh really fast, slice giant D&D dice into pieces with your glowy Edward Elric sword arm, and make a delightful crunching noise on your delicious glory crystal.

The endings. I went chaos route as usual then watched the others.
I'm going to have a fucking breakdown.
Things either I missed or they weren't explained. If you've got an answer... I wanna know ;u;
Aogami. If we need to make any Persona comparison, his story arc is like Aigis abridged but you don't get to finger him.
OK This brokoro my kokoro.
Nahobino's smooth moves.
I think this might be my favorite mainline SMT game. I don't know what the reviews are saying, aside from one tweet that ref'd a review I will not read 'cause it doesn't deserve my view -- but it may have said that SMTV is like P5 with less heart. What an unfair comparison. In the mainline SMT's (that I've played), there's not as much story as Persona games, which I'm guessing is their complaint. SMTV tells you just enough to leave room for interpretation. And isn't that alright too? For me, it is.
