I believe I have made a terrible assumption and I must rectify this immediately. Persona 4 The Golden The Animation’s not a New Game+.
It’s a Fandisc.
Ok, well it’s probably still a New Game+, given Yu’s SUPER AMAZING SHADOW KILLING SKILLS, but it’s not following the plot of Persona 4. It seems content in just doing it’s own thing. It’ll probably his “Changes between 4 and Golden” plot later, but not now.
Case and point, we’re past the first 2 dungeons already. Yukiko and Kanji are with the group and it’s time for wacky side stories. Some introductory bits set things in place,: Yu introduces Marie to the group and Yosuke wants to get a Scooter to pick up chicks, and it all falls in to place when the Girls want to go shopping with Marie on the same day Yosuke wants to initiate the plan.
So, Yu gets swept up in 90’s Sitcom Hijinks!
And it doesn’t take long for his perfect schedule to be thrown out of whack. Between failure to pick up chicks and the girls getting into a fashion-off with another girl over a skirt he’s running around like crazy.
And is this a little BANISHMENT THIS WORLD he gets caught up in too?
And to make matters worse his deadline is moved up an hour at the end, meaning he has to get home for dinner early.
Defeated, he finally makes it home at the end of a harrowing runaround.
There’s not really much I can say without going in to specific jokes. It was a fun episode, but P4 The Golden looks like it’s going to be Fanservice, but not the ecchi kind. It’s just more fun stuff for the fans to enjoy, of which I am one. Like a Fandisc, as I said.
Next week, more Fanservice. Yes, the ecchi kind. BEACH EPISODE.
