For those unfamiliar with the Persona series, Persona are fighting beings formed from one’s alter ego and summoned to fight Shadows in the alternate/ dream world.
I’d say I did not begin watching Persona 4 with any expectations at all, seeing the Genshin Impact Specialist meme made me curious what Persona 4 was about. Despite these initial expectations, and a slow start, somewhere along I started to enjoy watching it a lot. Episode 14 especially had me realise that I really liked the story telling and had grown to like the characters in it. Skip to spoiler-free if you’re spoiler-concerned.
Princess Elizabeth escapes imprisonment to search for the Seven Deadly Sins, a group of knights who once served the kingdom but were banished for their betrayal. She seeks them to right the country from the tyrannical rule of the Holy Knights. By chance, she encounters one of them, Meliodias, who saves her life and they go on a journey to search for the remaining Seven Deadly Sins.
A hikkikomori, fit, single-child boy who stopped going to school one day after failing to make friends, experiences nausea after leaving a convenience store and the world distorts. He is sent to another world where spirits and demihumans exist. He starts with no offensive powers, but soon finds that he has an ability Return by Death. He uses this to escape the dead ends and try to prevent the bad ends of the people around him. Watch as he supports Emilia, a scorned and feared half-elf, in her journey to be king, and as the story of the Jealous Witch unfolds.
In the creation of the Evenicle, the Holy Mother Eve gave two commandments that govern the world: One must not kill, and one can only have one partner in life. Criminals become branded as outlaws if they break these laws, and a black ring magically forms around their finger. They become unable to enter towns and harvest food. Asterick, a boy who washes up on the island, wakes up to find himself delightfully below a girl’s ass. Unsatisfied with having only one partner in life, Aster embarks on a journey to increase his knight rank. With each increase, he is allowed to marry and have sex with more women.
