Retrospection: Persona 4 (Story) Chapter 19 : Mysterious Fog
First off, do you realize what has happened? Our timeline's date and the Persona timeline are now synced in parrallel with each other. It's now December 4 in Persona 4 land its also December 4th here in our reality.
Anyways, what an emotionally charged chapter this week especially the scene with Nanako's passing and then the attempted revenge on Namatame, it's almost all too much to take in for one chapter. For those who might not have known, if you had decided for your protagonist to throw Namatame into the TV, you would have gotten the Bad Ending. Your game would have ended there without realizing a true killer, and the mystery of the fog unsolved.
Only if you had stopped and thought about the facts for a moment calmly you would have reached the same deduction as Akira has and realized that Namatame could not have been the killer.and thus, the seeker's of the of truth arc has begun. The judgment social link is now unlocked signifying in all Persona 4 games the end of our journey is and the truth is near. The only downside to this is while there's still reasonable amount of game time left until I do complete the game the time is limited, and I hope to at least still see Naoto's social link through to max. Moreover, attempt to raise Ai's social link however, might we might not see Temperance (Eri) and Death Social links (Hisano) to completetion in the time we have left.
