1) yes

2) an event changes if you date more than one girl yeah

Absolutely best love interest the new era of Persona has had. I never really expected to go after here, but oh my lord, she just grew on me so, so much. Some of the cutest (in a good way) moments in the game come from her.

On my first P4G run I did a romance of every choice because I'd already done Naoto and Chie in my first two P4 runs, and I wanted to see everything else.

The valentine event where you have multiple girlfriends is BRUTAL. Like, holy shit I'm a monster. I hope there's a return of a similar event this time =P

For those who've played the import or review copies: favorite romance/characters? Maybe top 3? Or if you put a lot of time into a character but they didn't click with you? Makoto looks like my girl.

I liked Haru and Makoto romance, though I didn't really like the latter as a party member skill-wise.

It's thinly veiled and we all know they're wrong.

The Persona Waifu discussion oftentimes can take up hundreds of points, even to the point that it annoys members who are unable to have fun on the internet.

Okay, I got it. Now let's not turn this into a Persona 4 waifu thread lol

Having a hard time deciding who is best girl in this one. Haven't met all of them yet.
Makoto is definitely the lead Waifu, but she's making me work for it though >:( (too many Social Status requirements)
Futaba-san is getting there but she's giving me Nana-chan vibes. Ann is okay I guess.

Isn't the protagonist like 17ish or something. Doesn't seem like that big a deal.


Disclaimer: I haven't played the game. I just think Futaba has the most appeling/cute character design, so I don't know her personality.

Kinda light spoiler-y?

Futaba is not only younger than you, but definitely acts like it. After you help her with her situation, she comes off as the "little sister" type, especially in the sort of family dynamic that you + her + Sojiro come to form. Also, Sojiro specifically asks you not to date her, seemingly because of how weird it would be.

Makoto 1000%. My order of who I would have went with would have been: Makoto > Miss Kawakami > Ann > journalist > doctor > Haru >>>>>>>>> shoji girl [infinite >s] Futuba. I love Haru's design, but her personality just did not click at all with me. She ended up being more "I want to be her" and not "I want to be with her", because lord that girl has fashion sense right up my alley (and my hair at times is very similar to hers).

My Valentine's Day was super calm and sweet because I didn't dare cheat on Makoto. But, I've heard it can be crazy again in P5 if you don't follow that advice. if I even have the time to do a second run, I want to get it set up timing-wise where I could date them all to see the results, or see the solo results of some of the others. I guess that's what YouTube is for, though.

I really wonder how it'll go for me this time. In 3 I was all about Kirijo but kinda pooched it because that linked unlocks so late so I ended up settling for Yukari and really wasn't happy about it. Then in 4 I just didn't chose between Rise and Yukiko, which led to some guilt on Valentine's Day and one other thing I can't remember.

Going in I'm leaning #TeamFutaba

Minor spoilers

She lives with you and your caretaker and the 3 of you sorta form a 3 person family bond similar to the bond between the MC, Dojima, and Nanako in P4. So yeah, dating her is kinda like dating your little sister, especially since you clean up after her like an actual big brother.

To each their own though.

I think that I'm going to go with Ann with this playthrough, the Lovers arcana has never done me wrong.

In P4, I dated Yukiko way too early in the game, and then regretted it when I got to know Rise. The lesson is to wait until you have everyone before you make these types of decisions.

It's funny to think of it in real-world terms.

"No, I do like you, and I definitely might want to date you, but... I REALLY need to see what this next girl we'll be meeting soon is all about first."

In the original P4 I just dated all of them. It wasn't my fault Mara made me do it.
