You expect her to make a living on a teacher's salary?!

SPOILER: Show
The pay rate for teachers in Tokyo can't be that bad can it?

Then again, given this school let a gym teacher get away with molesting/violating underage girls (and they ARE underage, even by Japans standards) I guess I shouldn't be surprised in the slightest. But you've gotta admit, giving your character the option to solicit your teacher, to be your 'personal sexy maid'. Pretty creepy. Even more creepy given she's in her mid twenties, Akira is about 16-17, the first villain of the game Kamoshida is a PEDOPHILE.

I know Japan has a different culture when it comes to age of consent, but HOLY CRAP ATLUS. HOLY CRAP.

That awkward moment when you and your buddies solicit a prostitute, and it's your homeroom teacher.

What the FACK Atlus? WHAT THE ACTUAL FACK!?


SPOILER: Show
LOL, oh man I can't wait to get to that part. Protagonist: "Teacher, you've given us B's and C's as part of your day job. *Throws money on table and drops pants.* Now we've come for an F." :devil:


Anyhow, moving on...

Dungeon 2 Spoilers  SPOILER: Show
I've just finished the Museum palace and taken Madarame down, because nobody gets away with the crap he pulled once Senpai Kun and the Nasal Fungus find out about it.
That heist at the end was really freaking cool, probably my favorite part of the game so far. I hope there's more like that later on. Yusuke was a real piece of shit before he joined us, but he's turning out to be a decent guy now. For a while I was thinking I was gonna have to steal his distorted desires as well. Can't wait to see Madarame confess. I've done some exploring in Mementos and taken down 3 targets there as well, I really like how this game has both P3 and P4's dungeon types in it.

Ok so the maid thing happened, 2 days earlier than I was expecting. Oh good lord that was fucking hilarious, I'll definitely be doing her... social link. :tongue:

I'm eagerly awaiting the time when I can start going for a romantic relationship with one of the P5 ladies. Not sure who it's going to be, though. The girl I was planning to make my P5 waifu (Makoto) unfortunately is starting to look like she's the fink who sold me out at the beginning of the game and got me arrested. Not interested in Ann. Futaba? Maybe. Definitely not Haru though, being rich is a huge turn-off for me. I wanted to date Shiho (Kinda hate myself for saying that, but it's true. I can't resist the moe.), but it doesn't look like she'll be returning. If Makoto does turn out to be the fink, and we can date ladies outside the high school, I'll probably go for Tae Takemi. I don't usually go for punk doctors, but damn, teasing me with that Rei haircut and dem perfect legs every time I go to the clinic...! I've got a clinical trial I want her to take part in! :naughty:

MAKOTO! :heart:  SPOILER: Show
Ok it looks like I was wrong about Makoto, thankfully. After the little incident with her sister, and her positive reaction to the whole metaverse/phantom thieves thing, I really don't see her selling us out. My new theory is that the police got ahold of Mishima and he squealed on us. He's a nice guy, but doesn't seem like the type who could stand up to torture like the police use in this game. Anyhow, back to Makoto and why she is best girl:

Man I absolutely love this chick! Bold and fearless to the point of it becoming a problem. Strong and independent without being bitchy or rubbing it in you face. She doesn't go on and on about being a strong and independent woman, she radiates it. She owns it. She's a little bit intimidating, but not enough to be scary or be a turn-off. The faint aura of menace she exudes is actually exciting and makes you want to follow her instructions. She's a born leader in the vein of The Twelve Kingdoms' Youko Nakajima/Queen Kei, but a little bit spicier than her. Did I mention she has a motorcycle persona that uses nuclear-elemental attacks?

This spoiler contains my opinion about Makoto.
SPOILER: Show
Makoto is the biggest positive surprise in this game. She really is awesome. I thought she was going to be a bitchy bore - but I couldn't have been more wrong.


So, what do you guys think, did they botch the translation?
I am not a native speaker, but lots of dialogue seems rather stilted/weird to me. I suspect the translation team translated the lines out of order, because often times dialogue doesn't really connect between one speech bubble and the next. The flow seems really off at times - which is sad, considering how much care the Japanese version put in to make the dialogue flow well. Additionally, each character's way of talking is distinct in the Japanese version, which is not really the case in the English version.
Those failings are regrettable, but since I'm having the option to choose the Japanese voices, I don't feel too strongly about it.
I can live with a functional translation, even when a lot of the flair is lost due to it. What I think is rather unforgivable is the fact that there are many lines that straight up don't make any sense. In some cases, I kind of knew what they were meant to be saying but had to read twice or three times to process what they mean.

In any case, I think the English voice over has to be applauded, considering they had to make those lines work - and passed with flying colors. The cast did amazing work, alleviating the failings of the script to a point where it almost doesn't become apparent.

I also am not happy about the Premium Edition.
- I knew that the Premium Edition wouldn't be mindblowing, considering the price point;
- But the school-bag is manufactured horrendously. It already fizzles;
- The OST has only a bare-bones selection of tracks and comes in a card-board slip;
- The Morgana-plushy looks like something packaged into a happy meal;
- The artbook is ok, but I've ordered the thankfully translated full version coming in July, so this Artbook is quite unnecessary;
- The steel book is fine.
Less is more. Package the full OST, or a full Artbook. Or give us the cute Morgana Hoodie, that you gave out as a promotional item in the US. That one at least doesn't look like it was produced for 1 cent per piece.
Compared to the utterly gorgeous Nier:Automata SE, this box is a disgrace.
