Recap / Persona 4 Ep 13 A Stormy Summer Vacation 1

Loveline is on the scene! Yu has been coming home late at night, tired and sluggish. Nanako is worried, so in true lil' sis fashion, dons the Loveline persona to find out why! Join Nanako and friends as she solves the case of the beaten down Big Bro!


This episode contains examples of:

  • Breather Episode
  • It Makes Sense in Context/Random Events Plot: The episode focuses on Nanako & the Investigation Team's attempts to figure out what Yu's doing over the summer, but because they only see snippets, it just appears as a series of random events.
  • Irony: Leading up to the episode, Igor state the importance of knowing when to take a brake. Circumstances prevent Yu from taking a brake almost all summer.
  • The Other Darrin: Matthew Mercer replaces Troy Baker as Kanji from this episode onwards.

Just remembered no more "sky's the limit" since it's halfway through the series now, new OP looked good. The song should catch on sooner or later for me, the guitar in it is pretty awesome, expected from Shoji. ED must be for this episode only? Nanako and her drawings, lol.


Nothing more needs to be said.

RealScreamer said:
Anywho -

People who wanted drunk Dojima, got it here

Stupid popped up collar continues for another episode.

Dear godNanako's cutenessThere has to be a limit on that thing, lmao. Teddie joining in and ruining the chase was pretty funny.



NANAKOOOOOOOOOOO~

Yipyipyapgimmeallyo'yens. - Hermit Arcana



Don't forget the Guardian fish reference/request.

RealScreamer said:
"Your Affection" playing while the gang searched for Narukami was awesome, so nostalgic. Finally getting that Kanji/Rise interactions, now if only that last person missing can join in on the teasing they're gonna get from dearest Risette.



Naoto? Rise totally belongs to me. I could stare at those thighhighs all day and night.

RealScreamer said:
ROFL @ the bus scene..

Nurse Sayako, not even Rise+Ai could look as pushy as she did lol - Devil Arcana.



She shares Ai's bitchiness, so meh. Still a great S.Link.

RealScreamer said:
MILF that's not really a MILF - Temperance Arcana.

Lol @ the "funny" glasses being worn again, Yukiko will never stop laughing at that..

The girls mistake his interactions with Old Lady, Hisano, huh? lol - Death Arcana.

Shu appears aswell - not a fan of his SocialLink so don't really care. - Tower Arcana



At Rank 9 his S.Link becomes awesome. Surprise b-day party, total chaos in the dark.

RealScreamer said:
And of course, Nanako - Justice Arcana, not sure if he got it, but looks like he did



Loveline! Detective's daughter :)

RealScreamer said:
Adachi and his cabbage or is that watermelon?lol.
Naoto appearance.



Surprised me.

RealScreamer said:
Old lady Shiroku appearance - I thought she was Hanako there for a sec,lol.
Ai's conceited awesomeness and Daisuke/Kou.
Even Daidara Metalworks owner appeared.


Sun S.Link next episode?

RealScreamer said:
This episode was pretty awesome, for me. Nice break from all that Mitsuo creepy-ness and Yu's dramatic thoughts of being alone.. Despite not continuing the plot, glad they introduced some of the minor characters. And will continue on with them the next episode. Also hoping for the gang going to the festival together.

*And so, Narukami has started 6Arcanas, so 6bonds = 6 new personas for later, not including Teddie's star arcana, as he hasn't used it yet. So 7 in all that we might see later, or he might spam if they decided to do that again.

Wonder if the king's game is after episode 13 or

Subs for this episode is gonna be a pain to wait for, as for the OP, too.



Well, 20/5 for me this go. Best episode of the season.

List of Persona 4: The Animation episodes

No. Title Writer Original airdate 1"You're myself, I'm yourself"Yūko KakiharaOctober&#;7,&#;&#;()[9]

Inside a limousine, Igor and his assistant Margaret introduce themselves to the unseen visitor, and explain the nature of their location, the Velvet Room, a place that exists between "dream and reality".[8] Igor mentions something special is in store for their guest.


On April 11, , Yu Narukami arrives by train to the rural city of Inaba, where he will be living with his detective uncle and cousin for a year due to his parents working overseas, beginning classes at Yasogami High School the following day. While truant from school, someone discovers the corpse of television announcer Mayumi Yamano hanging from a television aerial, where a crime scene is set up. Yu meets and goes out with Yosuke Hanamura and Chie Satonaka to Junes, a department store where Yosuke works and whose father manages, after Yosuke offered to treat Yu for getting him out of a trash can, and Chie demanded to tag along in compensation for her broken DVD. Chie brings up the Midnight Channel, a strange "television show" that appears on rainy nights. The three later meet Saki Konishi (a girl Yosuke has a crush on) there as well. Back at home, an interview is shown on the news about a girl who had witnessed the murder. As it later rains during the night, Yu feels a strange ambiance as it tries to pull him into the television, but he manages to free himself. Although relaying this event to Chie and Yosuke the next day yet dismissing it as a dream, they head to Junes to see what will happen on a widescreen television. The news shows that Saki was actually the one being interviewed, and as Yu touches the television, he starts to pass through. Yosuke, out of shock, accidentally knocks the three of them into the television, where they enter a world shrouded by fog. They find a room with a noose and encounter an anthropomorphic bear named Teddie, who hands Yu a pair of glasses allowing him to see through the fog. Suddenly, they are attacked by creatures known as Shadows. Just as the group are pinned down, Yu's power awakens as he summons his Persona named Izanagi to defeat the Shadows.2"The Contractor's key"Yūko KakiharaOctober&#;14,&#;&#;()

In the Velvet Room, Igor and Margaret present a key to their guest, welcoming him to return whenever he wishes. Margaret also reveals the guest's Persona is a Wild Card, providing infinite possibilities.


Yu, Yosuke, and Chie return to their world, thanks to Teddie. The next day, Chie's best friend, Yukiko Amagi, rejects a disturbed student's request for a date. Yosuke wants to take Saki to see a movie, but an assembly is called in, where it is learned that she had died. Yosuke proposes a theory that not only people who appear on the Midnight Channel will die, but also the television world is somehow connected to their deaths. Yu and Yosuke return to the television world, having Chie remain behind. Teddie accuses Yu and Yosuke of pushing people in, leading to their deaths. After they discover that his body is hollow, they manage to convince him otherwise and offer to help find the culprit. Teddie leads them to the twisted shopping district, mirroring the Inaba Shopping District, where they find the Konishi family's liquor store. Inside, Yosuke hears Saki's suppressed thoughts about her hatred towards him and his association with Junes. Suddenly, a doppelgänger of Yosuke appears, claiming to be the manifestation of his boredom of the countryside, being a transfer student himself.

During the battle, Yu manages to make Yosuke accept the thoughts his Shadow expresses, allowing Izanagi to defeat it, transforming it into Yosuke's Persona named Jiraiya.

Chie grows concerned after seeing Yukiko on the Midnight Channel, but is assuaged when Yukiko calls her to say she is taking time off from school to help at the Amagi Inn, the inn owned by her family. After confirming with Teddie that no humans are currently inside the TV world, Yu suggests that they watch Midnight Channel at night, which shows Yukiko dressed as a princess proclaiming that she is searching for her "Prince Charming" before running off into a castle.[11] The next day, Yosuke reveals two fake swords he found believing they will help in the television world, but both he and Yu are arrested when an officer mistakes them for real swords. At the station, Tohru Adachi, a junior detective partnered with Dojima, releases the boys.

Yu, Yosuke, and Chie later go into the television world, meeting up with Teddie, to save Yukiko inside the castle. Chie runs in ahead of the others, entering a room resembling a bedroom where she hears Yukiko's thoughts about being useless without Chie. During this, Chie's other self appears, scoffing at Yukiko and liking how she submits. When Chie rejects these accusations, her other self transforms into a Shadow that the boys fight, with Yu discovering his ability to use other Personas in battle. After the battle, Chie accepts that the only thing she cares about is Yukiko's friendship, causing the Shadow to transform into her Persona named Tomoe Gozen.

The group returns to the television world to resume their search for Yukiko in the castle, but they instead find her doppelganger who, after summoning Shadows, runs off. Elsewhere, the real Yukiko reminisces about the time she befriended Chie, followed by the time she nursed an abandoned baby bird back to health and then kept as a pet. When it escaped its cage after she forgot to lock the door, Yukiko became overcome with thoughts that, unlike the bird, she would be unable to escape her fate of running the Amagi Inn. When her friends find her, they see her doppelgänger voicing these thoughts aloud to Yukiko. The doppelganger welcomes the group before attempting to drop a chandelier on top of Chie. However, Yu reveals another ability, allowing him to summon Ara Mitama to protect her. The doppelgänger then begins to rant about how Chie is no longer fit to be her prince and continues attacking them. Eventually, Yukiko rejects her causing the doppelgänger to transform into a Shadow, a bird who sets the area ablaze while trapping the real Yukiko in a birdcage. As the group fights Yukiko's Shadow, Chie reveals her jealousy towards Yukiko, giving Yukiko the strength to break free and allowing the others to defeat her Shadow.

While waiting for Yukiko to recover, Yu is asked by Chie to help out with the basketball club, being formally introduced to his teammate, Kou Ichijo. He later spends time with the team's manager, Ai Ebihara, who eventually confides in him about a crush she has on Kou and asks for help. However, upon learning that Kou has a crush on Chie, a devastated Ai attempts to jump off of the school roof. Yu manages to console her, which causes Ai to force Yu into dating her until she finds someone else. Believing that Chie might be jealous of Yu, Yosuke sets her up to become a temporary manager for the basketball team.

When Dojima has to back out of going on a trip for Golden Week, Yu decides to take Nanako to hang out with his friends at Junes, who quickly warm up to her. The next day, Yosuke deduces that all of the victims so far have been women who were somehow linked to Yamano. A week later, on another rainy night, Yu watches the Midnight Channel and is surprised to see it showing Kanji Tatsumi, a notorious punk who attends Yasogami High School. Yu, Yosuke, Chie, and Yukiko discuss that, although Kanji doesn't fit the criteria of all-female victims, there is a link between Kanji and Yamano. Tatsumi Textiles, Kanji's family shop, has a custom-made scarf that was seen as a noose in the first visit to the television world. Upon leaving the shop, the group sees Kanji talk with an unknown young man. The next day after school, splitting into teams, Yosuke and Chie attempt to trail Kanji as he meets up with the student from the previous day, while Yu and Yukiko stake out near the shop, in order to catch the culprit. As Yukiko expresses her feelings about what she believes is her destined job at the Amagi Inn, Yosuke and Chie's cover is soon blown. Chie panics and says that it would not be wrong for Kanji to meet up with another boy, but this upsets him to the point that he threatens to beat them. They run away from him, eventually involving Yu and Yukiko in the chase until they manage to lose him.

Yu borrows the charm to give to Teddie, who is able to track down the scent. Finding Kanji at the bathhouse seen on the Midnight Channel, who is struggling with his other self in a compromising position. Kanji rejects the fact of being gay, which then transforms his other self into an overly muscular Shadow, flanked by two equally muscular and flamboyant lesser Shadows. As it seems that the group is no match against Kanji's Shadow, Yu fuses two Personas into Yamata-no-Orochi, also accepting the bunny-shaped phonestrap charm that Kanji made as "cute". This encourages Kanji to punch his own Shadow, taking it out of the battle. Kanji retorts to his other self that he is not gay but rather afraid of being rejected by either sex, turning his other self into his Persona named Take-Mikazuchi. Several weeks later, Kanji joins up with the group to find out who pushed him in the television world in the first place. That night, Dojima asks Yu if he has been getting involved in anything, aware that Yu was at Tatsumi Textiles and worried that he is getting in over his head.8"We've lost something important again"Yūko KakiharaNovember&#;25,&#;&#;()

While at the campsite, the curry that the girls prepared had several ingredients in it which made it barely edible. Dubbed "Mystery Food X", Yu and Yosuke collapse in disgust after eating it, yet their classmate Hanako Ohtani loves the curry and eats it all. When Yu and Yosuke go to the first aid tent, they meet Naoki Konishi, Saki's younger brother, who had been feeling left out from activities since Saki's death, as everyone is trying to let him grieve. While the gang is hiding out eating food they have ordered from Aika, Kanji picks up Naoki from his post so the others can talk to him, giving him some peace of mind.

An unconscious Kanji is left with the snoring Hanako for the remainder of the night as Chie and Yukiko sneak into Yu and Yosuke's tent. On the last day of camping, Yosuke convinces the girls to go swimming, having bought swimsuits for them at Junes. But when they are offended by the boys, they throw them into the river.

As Rise is harassed by multiple other selves, she rejects them, turning her main other self into a large Shadow. The gang summons their Personas to battle the Shadow, but she uses her special scanning ability to detect the strengths and weaknesses of their Personas, dodging their attacks and severely harming them. As she prepares a final attack, a fired up Teddie rushes at the Shadow, who cannot detect what Teddie really is and thus, cannot effectively counterattack. Teddie defeats the Shadow, albeit flattening himself in the process, and Rise realizes that she does not have a "real identity", transforming her other self into her Persona named Himiko. However, this causes Teddie to have an existential crisis, bringing forth his other self which also turns into a Shadow, sucking Teddie's deflated body up and threatening to kill the others. As Teddie proclaims to his other self that he does not want the easy answers as to who he really is, Rise uses Himiko to detect the Shadow's weak spot, allowing Izanagi to defeat it, freeing Teddie who accepts his other self and receives his own Persona named Kintoki-Douji.11"Catch Me If You Can"Jun KumagaiDecember&#;16,&#;&#;()

They give him new clothes and have him blend in as a human. As the gang head to Marukyu Tofu, they are met by the student that Kanji was talking to, who is revealed to be a junior detective named Naoto Shirogane, who confirms the three serial murders that have happened so far. Rise later agrees to join the gang to solve the mystery behind the victims and murders.

By the time they track down Mitsuo, they see him arguing with his other self over the murders, while his other self claims that he is "empty". Once Mitsuo refuses its statements, it begins to transform into a Shadow. Suddenly, time skips forward to after the battle, when the group is planning a party to celebrate the resolution of the murder case. A month later however, the group starts falling apart, but Yu and Yosuke remain as friends, as do Chie and Yukiko. On a rainy night, Yu is unable to watch the Midnight Channel, let alone pass through the television. When he hears the voice of Mitsuo's Shadow inside his room, he taunts him, telling him that his bonds are now empty since he is cannot summon his Persona anymore. Yu starts to give up hope when the Shadow strangles him, but Yosuke rescues him, revealing that they are in an illusion Mitsuo's Shadow created.

The following day, after Nanako finally tracks Yu down, she and the gang surprisingly find him with three women of different ages at separate times during the day. On the day of the summer festival, Nanako is at the fairgrounds by herself as Dojima has to work late, feeling she will never solve the case.

Meeting with her, Eri reveals to Yu her stress at the strained relationship she has with Yuuta. Finding her, Kuroda says to Yu that she is tired of being reminded of her deceased husband and throws a decorative comb he gave her into the river.

The group heads back to the television world, bringing them to a secret laboratory. When they enter, they see Naoto chiding a doppelgänger for acting too much like a child. However, the other self reveals that Naoto is insecure about being seen only as a child, rather than an adult detective. The Shadow also reveals that Naoto is really a girl. This causes Naoto to reject her other self, transforming it into a Shadow. Yosuke is attacked, struck by a beam that causes him to age rapidly.

A month later, a recovered Naoto reveals that her kidnapping happened in quick succession, likely committed by a lone male. The group concludes that Mitsuo was only a copycat killer, given the circumstances of Morooka's death. Naoto asks if she can join the group to help out, which they accept.

Nanako, overhearing the conversation, runs out of the house when Dojima tells her that the case is none of her concern.

During soccer practice with their classmate Daisuke Nagase, Kou complains that his class is hosting a play, and Yu kicks the soccer ball hard, which ends up hitting Ayane Matsunaga. Yu apologizes to her at the nurse's office, and then asks to listen to her play the trombone. She reveals that she is only filling in for another student in the band who got hurt and will not be able to perform at the cultural festival, and that she only plays music because she hopes that one day it will lift someone's spirits. A couple of days later, Chie signs up all of the boys in their group of friends for a drag pageantry without their consent as revenge for what Yosuke did. As the first day of cultural festival begins, the group-dating café proves to be a bust. Yu later goes to the rehearsal room and sees Ayane, who has not improved her part ever since, and she steps down when the junior trombone player is healed in time for the cultural festival. However, after Yu speaks up to defend her, she brings him out of the room, explaining that even though she feels she has lost the chance to reach her dream, she is happy that he defended her and all the practice made her remember her love for music. To make it up to her, Yu takes her around the cultural festival, cheering her up, until they cross paths with Ai, who takes Yu away for herself to see a tarot card reader who sounds suspiciously like Margaret. The drag pageantry happens on the final day of the cultural festival, which Teddie wins in a last-minute entry. Teddie's prize is to judge the beauty pageant, and he suggests that it should be a swimsuit competition for the girls, mortifying the girls in the group. Although Naoto chickens out during the contest, she ends up winning anyway. After the pageant, Rise tells Yu that she is a bit disappointed in losing, but Yu says that it is alright to feel that way.

Following the cultural festival, Dojima says that he is going out of town the next morning. Yukiko invites Yu and Nanako over to her family's inn, but the rest of the group insists on coming as well. Teddie is disappointed that the boys and girls are put in separate rooms, yet Kanji wonders why the boys' room looks so expensive. The boys are scared when the telephone suddenly rings, but it is just to inform them that the open-air bath is open, much to their relief. However, they are surprised to find the girls in the open-air bath already, consequently having a barrage of buckets thrown at them before they retreat. It is then that Yukiko realizes that she got the allotted open-air bath times mixed up. Yukiko is later notified that a television crew wants to film a special regarding Yamano's death in the inn, but she refuses and tells them to leave. When the boys later prepare for bed, they hear a distant voice, so they decided to sneak into the girls' room and stay with them. However, the boys are shocked to discover that they have snuck into Hanako and Kashiwagi's room instead, running out of the room after the two literally throw themselves at the boys. Later on, Yu finds Yukiko still awake in the lobby. She says she is prepping for her innkeeper's license test, also telling him that after accepting her other self in the past, she realizes that she wants to help run her family's business rather than to leave the inn and live on her own. Late at night, Yu stares at a television set shut off while holding an envelope, which he received a week earlier. Inside the envelope, the letter says "don't save anyone anymore".21"DON'T SAVE ANYONE ANYMORE"Jun KumagaiMarch&#;2,&#;&#;()[28]

In the Velvet Room, Igor comments that their guest's journey has been a long one, and wonders if he will be able to solve the riddle at its end. Margaret mentions that not much time is left, and asks their guest if he will be able to discover the truth.


Naoto deduces that the sender may already know who Yu is, since the letter was personally delivered to him. When he arrives home, he has dinner with Nanako. The news airs a local politician who has visited Nanako's school, mentioning a student who impressed him. She later feels sick, and Yu puts her to bed, promising that they will make a snowman before he goes back home. The next morning, the two prepare to turn on the kotatsu, but after they discover that it is broken, Yu says that he will pass by Junes to purchase a new one. Dojima comes home, holding another letter for Yu, which states, "If you don't stop, the next one to go in and die will be someone dear to you". Dojima, realizing that Yu has become too involved in the case, takes him to the police station for questioning, leaving Nanako home alone. At the police station, Yu reveals the nature of the television world, but Dojima, not believing this, has him stay in the station overnight. While working at Junes - Yosuke, teaching Teddie how to use a cellphone, calls Nanako, who relays what has happened to Yu earlier in the evening. The Midnight Channel displays Nanako on television, and Naoto believes this is because the politician was referring to Nanako in the news before. After the boys arrive at the station, Dojima is told by Naoto that Nanako may have been kidnapped by the serial killer, prompting him find the culprit. Adachi locks the boys in the interrogation room not long before the girls arrive. Naoto explains to everyone there that the culprit is hauling around a television set in the back of a delivery truck, which Yukiko, Kanji and Rise remember encountering prior to their kidnappings. Adachi says that the suspect might be a retired councilman now working at a delivery company, which Naoto realizes is Taro Namatame, the man who had the affair with Yamano. Adachi releases the boys and tells Dojima who the culprit is, just as Namatame in his delivery truck passes by Dojima on the road. Dojima gives chase until Namatame intentionally causes a car wreck that injures Dojima and flees the scene. As the group catches up to them, Naoto finds an address book detailing the addresses of the victims thus far that Namatame wanted to "save", including Nanako. However, Morooka was not among the names of the victims. Yu sees a red envelope in the back of the truck containing a handmade ring Nanako made to congratulate him on his test scores. Dojima asks Yu to save Nanako, since she is all he has left in his life. As the team makes it to Junes, ready to enter the television world, Nanako is approached by Namatame, who tells her everything will be alright.22"It's just like Heaven"Jun KumagaiMarch&#;9,&#;&#;()[28]

In the Velvet Room, Igor reads their guest's fortune, and Margaret discovers exactly what fate lies in store for their guest.


The team enters the television world to find a beautiful realm that looks like Heaven. Encountering Nanako in the custody of Namatame, he claims that he wanted them all to face their true selves, but why he did it in such a deadly manner is beyond them. Namatame summons many Shadows that transforms him into the Persona named Kunino-sagiri. Yu, blocking off the first round of attacks, is then possessed, having an antenna over his head; forcing him to attack his friends, repeatedly switching through many of his Personas. After hearing Nanako's voice, he finds the strength to destroy the antenna over his head and catches Nanako after Kunino-sagiri drops her. However, Kunino-sagiri then takes control of the others. Yu suddenly hears Dojima's voice telling him to save Nanako, giving him the resolve to fuse four of his Personas into a power Persona named Kohryu in order to free his friends, who all combine their strengths to destroy Kunino-sagiri. Nanako then helps Yu summon another Persona named Sraosha to purify the area of the surrounding Shadows. Everyone returns to the real world to bring Nanako to the hospital, where she is placed in intensive care. A couple weeks later on a foggy morning, the news reports that Namatame - who is also hospitalized - is being interrogated for his actions. Yu lets the rest of the team know that they will be able to go to the hospital later to see Nanako, who is still recovering. Later, Adachi tells the group that Namatame tried to hit on Saki, which may have led to her death in the first place. When the group leaves the hospital, they hear people talking about how thick the fog has gotten lately. Much to their shock, when they put on their glasses, they are able to see through the fog, which Chie suggests could mean that the fog from the television world may be leaking into the real world. A week later, Teddie is saddened that he might have to return to the television world since the serial killer has finally been caught, but he wants to at least stay until Nanako fully recovers. However, Yu allows him to stay forever. When Chie mentions how cold it has gotten, it reminds Yu that he promised to buy a new kotatsu for Nanako. They all plan to throw a party for Nanako for Christmas when suddenly Yu receives a call from Adachi, saying that Nanako's condition has worsened. He heads to the hospital and sees Nanako just as she appears to die in front of him.23"In Order to Find the Truth"Mitsutaka HirotaMarch&#;16,&#;&#;()

The team grieves after the apparent death of Nanako. The group enters Namatame's room, seemingly attempting to escape through a window. Namatame's Shadow then appears on the Midnight Channel on the television set, boasting that it will never cease its desire to "save" people. Yu, grief-stricken and enraged after Nanako's death, first has the intention of pushing Namatame into the television set to face his own fate against his Shadow, but he then changes his mind. Although Yosuke is upset by this, Yu is not convinced that they have the full story just yet.[33] While the team discusses about what they know so far about the case, they realize that Teddie has gone missing. As they head outside, snow begins to fall, and everyone says goodbye to Yu and head back to their homes. Yu breaks down crying after remembering the promise he made with Nanako to play with her in the snow, and Yosuke returns to comfort him.[34] The next day, the team realizes that the warning letters that Yu previously received were not written by Namatame, who relates his discovery of the Midnight Channel and his ability to enter the television world. After first seeing Yamano on the Midnight Channel and learning of her death, he warned Saki about her appearance on it, but failed to convince her of the danger. However, when Yukiko appeared on the channel, he decided to kidnap her and throw her into the television world, believing it was the one place the murderer would not be able to reach. He believed he was successful when Yukiko did not die, repeating this method with the other "victims" that had appeared on the channel. Teddie is shown wandering in a foggy street, saddened that he was unable to protect Nanako, and says farewell to her and the team. In the hospital room, where Nanako is being kept, Teddie's farewell to her is heard, and Nanako silently revives. Everyone is overjoyed to see that Nanako has miraculously revived, even though Teddie remains missing. Back home, a relieved Yu falls asleep, while his cellphone lights up on its own, revealing text messages from all of his friends.


In the Velvet Room, Igor remarks on his long journey and how their guest has acquired many bonds along the way. Margaret reveals that the friendships their guest has gained has formed the Judgement Arcana.[35] She then expresses her jealousy at the bonds he has made, before realizing a bond has formed between herself and the guest as the Empress Arcana.[36] She remarks that their limousine will be parked for a while until they can figure out the next direction they will travel.


The next day, at the Chinese Diner Aiya, the team meets to figure out who the real culprit is. Naoto steps out to get some air, and Yu goes to join her, but not before finishing the mega beef bowl for the first time, much to everyone's shock. After Yosuke joins them, the three each contemplate who the real killer could be with the knowledge they have, when Yu seems to have an epiphany as he stares up at the snowy sky.24"The World is Full of Shit"Yūko KakiharaMarch&#;23,&#;&#;()

Teddie is in the Velvet Room where he reveals that he has discovered he is only a Shadow, but one that has acquired human emotions. He asks Yu to say goodbye to Nanako for him when he goes to Heaven, but Yu speaks to him and tells him Nanako is alive and well, much to his joy.


Before Yu goes to the hospital, Yosuke expresses that he is both proud and jealous of how fast Yu has made friends, saying the only way he will feel better if they had a fight to let out all of their pent up emotions and to become equals. Inside the Chinese Diner Aiya, the rest of the group discusses who the suspect might be, since he was seen at the Amagi Inn before and also would have also spoken to Saki in the past. At the hospital, Yu mentions to Yosuke that Mitsuo testified at trial that he blacked out in the police interrogation room right after turning himself in. They are met by Dojima and Adachi, who tells them that Namatame was already transported into holding, much to Dojima's anger. Yu and Yosuke interrogate Adachi concerning the cases regarding Yamano and Saki, but he gives no straight answer, also mentioning that he forgot to send the threat letter to the laboratory as evidence. When the rest of the group shows up, they believe that he must be the suspect, based on how he did not react when Morooka was not among the names of the victims that were written in Namatame's address book. A pressured Adachi runs into Namatame's dark and empty room, as the group are reminded that a television set is in there. Meanwhile, Teddie goes to see Nanako, who has dreamed that he disappeared but she could still hear his voice. In the television world, Adachi is nowhere to be found, and the group is glad to finally see Teddie again, who reveals that he himself is a shadow. Encouraged by the others, Teddie senses that Adachi is inside the room with the noose. Adachi, who is a projection, reveals that the television and real worlds will soon merge, turning all humans into Shadows. They follow him to the shopping district, where he summons some Reapers in different places to attack them. As the group splits up to hold off the Reapers, the real story behind Adachi is unveiled. At the inn, Adachi had thrown Yamano into the television world after she rejected his advances. At the police station, Adachi had thrown Saki into the television world as well for rejecting his advances while he was interrogating her. Adachi says that Mitsuo's arrest and Namatame's salvation were just distractions for him to utilize in his "game", but it was interrupted when the group started to be involved in the case. He states to Yu that they should have a final showdown to determine who the television world prefers, as each of them summons their Personas, Yu's Izanagi versus Adachi's Magatsu Izanagi.25"We Can Change The World"Yūko KakiharaMarch&#;30,&#;&#;()

As he effortlessly attacks the team, Adachi says that the television and real worlds will soon combine, as seen by a dark matter gradually descending to the ground. Once all of humanity becomes Shadows, they will have no emotions and will act only on raw instinct. The group takes out the Reapers one by one, while also expressing their distaste in Adachi's plans. As Adachi makes his last stand against Yu, he takes him out, destroying his Persona. Realizing his defeat, Adachi decides to shoot himself, but the dark matter in the sky picks him up and says that it will rule over the new world. The dark matter calls himself Ameno-sagiri, a being that controls the fog that covers both worlds and has been awoken by human desires as it attacks them. Ameno-sagiri is merging the worlds so that the humans will no longer differentiate between reality and fantasy. In fact, the team's ability to face their Shadows in order to obtain Personas has only been a means for its plan to proceed, as the television world only shows what people want to see and hear. Ameno-sagiri raises Yu up to test whether or not his bonds are strong and genuine, and extract them from his body. As all of his friends call out to him, each of their Personas miraculously evolve into more powerful Personas. With the powers of Yosuke's Susano-o, Chie's Suzuka Gongen, Yukiko's Amaterasu, Kanji's Take-Jizaiten, Teddie's Kamui, Rise's Kanzeon, and Naoto's Yamato-Takeru combined, Yu summons the Persona named Lucifer to finish off Ameno-sagiri, who before disappearing, realizes that the group has proven beyond the capabilities of human desires. The group finds Adachi and takes him with them to have him pay for his crimes. In the real world, Nanako wakes up, telling Dojima that she had a dream that Yu and his friends saved everyone. On Christmas Day, everyone celebrates Nanako's full recovery at Dojima's house. Three months later, Yu is later seen off by everyone else on his trip back to Tokyo, and after a heartfelt goodbye, Yu boards the train and heads home.


In the Velvet Room, Igor remarks on the amazing journey their guest has had, and reveals a crystal that has formed from the power he has gained, shining as it shows the way to truth. Margaret remarks on the bonds the guest has made while seeking out the truth, and hopes he will continue in the future.True–End"No One is Alone"Jun KumagaiAugust&#;22,&#;&#;()

On March 20, , Yu and his friends celebrate before his return to Tokyo. However, he strangely seems to be reliving the same day over again on the next day. He receives a letter from Adachi in prison, who ponders about the source of the rumors about the Midnight Channel. Yu attempts to trace his memories back to his first arrival in Inaba, only to relive the same day yet again. He figures out, thanks to Nanako, that he shook hands with a gas station attendant before heading to Dojima's house. Going to the gas station, the attendant, revealed to be the goddess Izanami, reveals that she gave Yu the power to enter the television world by shaking hands, also being the case with Adachi and Namatame. Izanami explains that the Midnight Channel is a "window" meant to accommodate people's desires to both reveal their true selves and uncover the secret lives of others. The real truth that Yu has been suppressing is that the team is confronting her right now, but all his friends have been swallowed up. Yu denies what he sees, choosing to repeat the same day over again, until Margaret appears to literally slap him out of his trance, bringing him into a fight against her where she summons the Persona named Helel to attack him. Before he is hit, however, he is protected by the bonds of all of his friends and acquaintances, and the Personas they represent defend him against Margaret's attacks, as their voices thank him and urge him forward. As the battle climaxes, his Shadow appears as a mountain of television sets, showing his suppressed fear of moving away and losing his friends. Yu admits to his feelings and accepts his Shadow, which returns to being Izanagi, who deals the final blow against Helel. In the aftermath, Margaret tells Yu that regardless of winning or losing, he will never be alone again, and returns the Orb of Sight to him. Yu is returned to the battlefield, where the Orb of Sight has revealed the goddess's grotesque true form, Izanami-no-Okami. Yu resists her onslaught of attacks, proclaiming that he is far from alone in this world. He then unveils the World Arcana, the embodiment of all of the bonds he has made, and summons the newly ascended Izanagi-no-Okami, who obliterates the goddess. Izanami begins to disintegrate while commending Yu's efforts, saying that the path of the future now rests on mankind's shoulders. Yu then wakes up to find his friends safe and the television world restored to the paradise it originally was, while the voice of Igor congratulates their obtainment of a "new world".


The next day, Yu prepares to leave Inaba as everyone else sees him off. After he boards the train, everyone begins to jog after him, shouting their goodbyes and pleas for his return someday. Yu, choking back tears, swears that he will never ever forget them. After the credits, Teddie explains his belief that the bonds they have all formed will never disappear, while on the train Yu looks at a photo of himself, his family, and friends all together.

Yea, why don't you drop your glasses

A filler episode was bond to show up but it's one that is nice to have.

What makes this episode interesting is the perspective we are watching it from. How do the other characters feel when they see Yu going around forming social links and what would they do about it. Its a nice break from the usual events of how the social link breaks down as Yu goes through them, which will be shown next week. Of course the main star of this filler episode was Nanako and dressing up as a Magical Detective Girl. It was mostly of her being all cute and stuff but it also shows her worries over what Yu and have her interact with old characters from pass episodes. There were some nice throw in cameos like the Shiroku Store Owner, Smith master and turning out to be a fire works person, Master Daidara, and F-ing Fox!

Since we are half way through the Persona 4 anime it is time for a change up of Opening and Ending (I assume it will change next week). The new opening, from both a visual and song aspect, are both well done and fitting with the series style. However, a few bits are of footage from the last opening but I assume that is due to lack of time to make some new animation and will most likely change later on or on the DVD/Blu-ray. This weeks ending is more specific to this episode featuring Nanako, some cute drawings, and a happy little song from Chie (No really, Chie (Horie Yui) was singing this).

After watching many filler episodes in my life time of animes, this one works out in the end since it keeps itself in the logic of the series and connects to the currents events as we see them from Yu's perspective next week.

Wait, this was a filler episode? I couldn't really tell, although that's probably because I don't know how to judge anime outside "the first episode or two are bound to suck, at least in terms of the entire show."

People use the term filler episode like its a bad thing, unless its something like Naruto or DBZ, series that by my understanding are fairly notorious for it. I really enjoyed this episode, in fact I'd go as far to say that its probably my favorite so far.

@Video_Game_King: Filler refers to an episode that doesn't move on the main plot, its not a term that's necessarily indicative of the quality of the content itself. It refers more to the fact that its a side story; although it is often used disparagingly as mentioned above where its essentially used as a stalling tactic.

It helps, but yeah its fairly easy to highlight by the fact it was a completely peripheral episode. You could basically remove it and not affect the central story.

Man, the lyrics to the intro song (and most of the songs in P4) feel like they're just crazy word salad spewing out of the mouth of a tourette syndrome victim. I love it, but it blows my mind that it ever came out of the mind of a human. It was pretty good, though after last weeks incredible episode, it didn't blow me away.

Why does Shoji Meguro insist on using English lyrics? On one side, the songs are funny and charming with the Engrish, but on the other hand I wonder if it would sound better and make more sense if it was in Japanese.

@FluxWaveZ: From my experience with Anime (however limited that is) I found that most songs are mostly nonsense anyway, even with the Meguro brand of Engrish peppered in. Mostly melodramatic descriptors that don't really make sense, and have some loose connection to love in some form.

It would be odd to make the switch now, its oddly charming like you said.

Oh, and on the song thing: I don't think the song being in Japanese would help. It's more like he turned off the parts of his brain that understand how language works. It would probably be the same thing in Japanese: something that grammatically makes sense, but is balls hard to figure out. Oh, and you'd listen to it about twenty times a day.

This episode was pretty niiice. I'm digging the musical selection (taking songs from the reincarnation soundtrack) and the pace that this show is going. Even if it is "filler", the various social links getting some attention is a good thing, especially when they lead to some humorous moments. Now that we're past the halfway point, I look forward to see how they treat the last couple months of the game.

It's hard to say what makes sense and what doesn't though, translating Japanese lyrics is a clusterfuck because every body has wildly different interpretations, it's such a context based language and when translating lyrics you are missing that context, unless the artist specifically releases their lyrics you can almost guarantee any other translations are going to vary. You can get the jist of what is meant but any more than that is open to interpretation and guess work.

Yeah, at the end of the episode it pretty much shows that part two will be Charlie basically explaining all the social link stories via flashback(with how charlie goes "welll.."). Hell, if i didnt know how long the episode was, i would be waiting for the ripple effect. I was wondering how they were going to cram a lot of the sideline social link stories into the Anime. It was a pretty good idea to show it from the other characters perspective in one episode of a two-parter and have the 2nd part be the character explaining all the things that went down.
