Retrospection: Persona 4 (Story) Chapter  7 -  The Town Idol

In this weeks videos we rescue both Teddie and Rise Kujikawa the returning town idol. Teddie's boss fight is by far the longest boss fought thus far, not the hardest but it does require the most patience since other teddie has no weakness to any ailments it requires a lot of due diligence to chip away at his HP. 

In this chapter we see the dramatic tension between Dojima and our protagonist Akira, I like to point out something that I feel that P4 did better than P3 and that is exploring the relationship between people outside just social links. In P3, no one questions what the protagonist and SEES were doing, their actions were a complete secret and really no one was any the wiser. In P4 you see that its getting harder to keep their investigation under suspicion, and clearly Dojima does not buy any of Akira bull shit excuses. While you may say, Dojima is a detective and a the protagonist's guardian after all, so it make sense that he's not clueless, I still think it not only Akira and Dojima a more dynamic relationship and also makes the setup more believable.
