Am I the only one who doesn't like Kanji?
Kanji is such a great character. My absolute favorite from P4.
It's true that game doesn't exactly say there was ever a time in Naoto's life where people didn't believe in her or take her seriously because she was a female (in fact it doesn't make much sense when IIRC the game says both her parents are successful detectives, which would presumably include her mother)
she could have picked up a goddamn Nancy drew.
the problem with Naoto is that both her gender issue and her femininity issues are both already covered better by Kanji and Chie respectively.
you change it so she hates being a kid like her dungeon and entire personality this far would have implied and lo and behold she brings something new to the table but they killed that by having her have gender issues
PIMP HARDER FOR THE PYM PARTICLES
Naoto's dilemma is easier to understand if you are Japanese where being a woman is a much bigger detriment for what she is trying to achieve.
There was a show I once watched where this girl wanted to become a great detective and mom and the response was to give her weird looks and to say "Arn't those incompatable?"
ehh...Kanji was ok. I liked him alot more when he wasn't
Besides him and Chie I really couldn't stand the rest of the party.
I love each and every character in this game because they give the player insight on the several different types of people in the world (mainly through the social links), relating to what I believe is a larger theme in the game of accepting/appreciating people (including yourself) for who they are. Even if you don't like a character's personality or motives, you should be able to learn something from them. You gotta open your third eye. But hey, that's just my opinion.
Yosuke taught me how to be a better person.
By me making sure I do the exact opposite of whatever he would do in a given situation.
Cop tells you to put the weapons down, fake or otherwise? Don't start waving them around like a lunatic and just put the damn weapons down before calmly explaining the situation.
Friend cooked a bad meal? Offer constructive criticism rather than shatter their self-esteem
Friends get well justified revenge for a stupid stunt I pulled? Take it with good humor and try to look at the positives rather than complain non-stop
Face to face with a possible murderer?
It's all about the learning :)
