Eikichi Mishina.

looks: somewhat attractive | eh | not really my type | pretty | handsome | beautiful | stud | gorgeous | SWEET LORD MERCY

His design is really eye-catching, it was a piece of official artwork of Eikichi that first made me want to play P2! Not like in a ‘this is my new waifu’ way, I just really appreciate the Visual Kei aesthetic.

can you relate to this character on a personal level?: no | not really | somewhat | yes | they are me

Again, not so much in backstory (my dad is neither scary nor the owner of a sushi shop) but Eikichi in the flashbacks is a soft-hearted kid who loves to draw and is easily pushed around, which was true of me when I was that age (though I was less nervous and more talkative)

That and Eikichi clearly has quite a negative self-image, projecting a false confidence to act as a buffer between him and the outside world. I think this is something a lot of teenagers could relate to (and girls even moreso given Eikichi’s disordered relationship with his appearance and food).
I think I’d relate even more to him if I’d played the game when I was about 14!

would you date/be friends with this character in real life if they were real?: total bros | friends | best friends | date | become their steady datefriend | neither | i don’t know

Look, I can’t come between the power-couple of Eikichi and Miyabi, that’s just blasphemy! But I’d be pals with this guy whether he liked it or not, we could draw and buy tacky jewellery together - the basis of any great friendship!

Yukiko Amagi please :3

Yukiko is clearly supposed to be a very pretty character, the classic Yamato Nadeshiko.

can you relate to this character on a personal level?:  no | not really | somewhat | yes | they are me

Not really, her view of herself is very much on the opposite end of the subject/object scale to me. Yukiko waits for stuff to happen to her whereas I’m always of the mind that if you want something to happen, you go out and make it happen.

Yukiko’s difficult to read, she might be thoroughly annoyed by me! Or (since I’m a girl) she might laugh at my terrible jokes and accept me giving her a helping hand. It’s difficult to say - it depends if she’d see me as an ally or threat. (She has a unique world view so it’s tough to call!)

I’m assuming you mean Maya Amano?

When I say ‘not really my type’ in these answers it’s really just me acknolwedging that even though I don’t necessarily want to date someone, I can recognise that they’re good-looking! I think Maya is probably the most ‘idealised’ girl in the P2 duology since she’s a MC in Eternal Punishment,

Not so much backstory, but definitely her personality I relate a lot to! I was also the kid who would mind all the younger kids, and I put a lot of energy into being extra cheerful to keep the people around me afloat. I also want to excel in work and always do my best, then after a long day I just collapse in a heap. My room isn’t nearly as messy as Maya’s though!

(I suppose that’s why I wanted to see more of Shadow!Maya, because I know there’s plenty to dig into there)

I think I’d get on well with Maya, we seem to have similar goals and lines of thinking -  maybe I could give her license to chill out and have a rest while I keep everyone’s spirits up in the meantime.

Have no fear, I shall get to your asks tomorrow - right now I feel absolutely dire so my brain can’t form answers at all!

I keep pushing myself to keep going when I’m sick, but now my dumbass sinuses have truly risen up in protest and are holding my face hostage. It feels like my head has been poked repeatedly over several days by an army of furious children. 

I’m going to the doctor tomorrow to get this sorted out and hopefully I can start feeling semi-human again!



(In fact, if I’ve been missing/not answering asks lately, my apologies as my brain isn’t firing on all cylinders at the moment, and I keep imagining I’ve already finished tasks when instead I’ve just gone to a cupboard and stared inside blankly, not remembering what I opened it to get)

give me a character (from anything ever) in my ask and I’ll rate:

WOULD ANY SANE PERSON think dumpster diving would have stopped Hitler, or that composting would have ended slavery or brought about the eight-hour workday, or that chopping wood and carrying water would have gotten people out of Tsarist prisons, or that dancing naked around a fire would have helped put in place the Voting Rights Act of 1957 or the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Then why now, with all the world at stake, do so many people retreat into these entirely personal “solutions”?

Part of the problem is that we’ve been victims of a campaign of systematic misdirection. Consumer culture and the capitalist mindset have taught us to substitute acts of personal consumption (or enlightenment) for organized political resistance. An Inconvenient Truth helped raise consciousness about global warming. But did you notice that all of the solutions presented had to do with personal consumption—changing light bulbs, inflating tires, driving half as much—and had nothing to do with shifting power away from corporations, or stopping the growth economy that is destroying the planet? Even if every person in the United States did everything the movie suggested, U.S. carbon emissions would fall by only 22 percent. Scientific consensus is that emissions must be reduced by at least 75 percent worldwide.

Or let’s talk water. We so often hear that the world is running out of water. People are dying from lack of water. Rivers are dewatered from lack of water. Because of this we need to take shorter showers. See the disconnect? Because I take showers, I’m responsible for drawing down aquifers? Well, no. More than 90 percent of the water used by humans is used by agriculture and industry. The remaining 10 percent is split between municipalities and actual living breathing individual humans. Collectively, municipal golf courses use as much water as municipal human beings. People (both human people and fish people) aren’t dying because the world is running out of water. They’re dying because the water is being stolen.

…Personal change doesn’t equal social change.

Forget Shorter Showers: Why Personal Changes Does Not Equal Political Change (via america-wakiewakie)

Also been saying this for years.

We need to stop acting like your average person (I use the US as an example because my primary experience is with that) is responsible for this shit. Like, oh, we could fix all our problems if Average McAverageson from Nowhere, USA would quit taking such long showers, quit driving so much, turned off lights she’s not using and buy only organic, fair-trade stuff she can’t afford when she stops at a grocery store on the way home from her job that doesn’t pay her enough.

I see a lot of very well-intentioned, principled people saying things like “If people only cared where and how their goods were made!” “If people only valued these things more!” “Pollution and climate change is an example of the tragedy of the commons - people are just too selfish to be trusted!”

And they don’t realize that the economic oppression of workers in other places is directly linked to that of workers here, both are locked in and forced to participate. they don’t realize that most people do care, aren’t interested in taking up more of their share of resources, and would make this happen if it were in their power as an individual. Finally, that the “tragedy of the commons” garbage that gets used to encourage capitalistic thinking and discourage people from being social- and community-minded is actually wrong and not an accurate example of how real people behave. that individual use of resources, the same thing that gets touted as the Reason For All Our Problems, is a drop in a bucket compared to corporate use and abuse of these resources.

Maybe someday when we’ve thrown off the corporate yoke and gotten their sticky fingers out of our natural resources, individual choices will make a difference. But right now that’s nothing compared to the real source of the problem.

So, it’s not us. We’re not an irredeemably greedy and awful bunch of people, even though we’ve been taught to value greed and selfishness. We’re all being robbed. It’s just that most of us don’t know it.

How Persona and Persona 2 fit into the series’ timeline

gabriulio:

It wasn’t until Persona 3 with the calendar system that Atlus finally started being specific about the dates in which the Persona games take place. Obviously, people are curious as to when exactly Persona and Persona 2 happened and how much time passed between the games.

By using info in the game, I’ve managed to nail it with precision, and have even corrected someone here on Tumblr about this once. Now I’ve decided to finally make a post about it, containing all info that I’ve gathered.
