autistic overload if it was a game and i forgot to take my meds.

Somehow the weird 30 years old individuals who are saying animes suck now because they're all full of fanservice unlike ghost in the shell while only watching the currently most popular shonen managed to trick people into thinking a game that has every jrpg cliché in the book and then some is "revolutionnary" or "the only good one"

Pros:
-Very stylish
-really addicting gameplay
-cool level designs
-great soundtrack
Cons:
-characters are very one note, everyone is very over the top and doesn't interact well with one another
-boring plot

P5's ultra-sleek menus, just-in-time musical cues, and buttery-smooth gameplay transitions are all a thing of beauty, even if its juvenile story suffers from seemingly-endless bloat.

This game is one of the best entries in the Persona series. A game to be experienced and enjoyed. The soundtracks and visuals elevate the experience. The story drags towards the end, but I give it a pass.
