I'll check it out. Hope she turned into a real fine woman.

I know I chose for her to wear that schoolgirl outfit at the end of her maxed S.link back then.

If anyone is interested, here are all of the photos from the novel (I have the novel, though I am interested in the manga. I think the manga has way better odds of being translated online Though I'm still waiting for someone to translate Yosuke's manga...)

Warning, spoilers for both the game (kinda) and the novel itself.

Just a photo of the book - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0208.jpg

Some slip on the cover, talks about some Persona 4 Festival. Seemed neat - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0209.jpg

Fold out poster art of Naoto and her new Persona - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0210.jpg

Other side of fold out poster art. Most folks have seen this image - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0211.jpg

Just sorta an intro image before the book part starts - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0212.jpg

Naoto and Rise(?) in bikinis. Again, most folks have seen this one - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0213.jpg

Blurry image of Touki Aoi - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0214.jpg

Amatsu Mikaboshi, presumably when first summoned - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0215.jpg

Just Sousei (Genesis)...doin' Sousei stuff - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0216.jpg

Ai Kurogami. Who from what I gather is just a perfectly normal android, not an anti-shadow weapon - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0217.jpg

Genesis summoning his Persona, Tsukuyomi (who I haven't seen in color, so I like to imagine he's colored red and white, he gives me a Tokyo Tower vibe) - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0218.jpg

Naoto butt ass naked in what I'm going to assume is the shower - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0219.jpg

Genesis and Tetsuma finding devious joy in the fact that somewhere else, Naoto is eating grilled cheese - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0220.jpg

Genesis doin' more Genesis stuff - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0221.jpg

Touko again, I think the picture is more about her necklace which...kinda got cut off in the photo - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0222.jpg

Split screen stuff - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0223.jpg

Naoto just rescued by Spiderman (probably not...) - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0224.jpg

Touko in handcuffs 'cause...I guess she's the killer or...whatever the big twist was supposed to be - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0225.jpg

Naoto slapping some boy I've never seen before and have no idea who he is - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0226.jpg

Naoto salutes Spiderman (again...probably not) - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0227.jpg

Naoto and Genesis all chibi like...like Japanese characters like to do - http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k74/Strain42/IMG_0228.jpg

Is this long-haired Naoto canon / something?

From what I've heard, this isn't canon.

I'm not sure anymore to be honest.

See, when the novel first came out, what the internet was saying was that Genesis was supposed to be the older brother to Aigis and Labrys. And if that were the case, the novel would be instantly considered non-canon because Arena clearly states that Gen 5 was the first Gen to use both humanoid appearance and attempt to give the weapons a Persona.

But apparently now that people have actually read it, the story is that Genesis is actually the last anti-shadow weapon ever built, so he's the youngest and was made in secret after Aigis was (y'know, just in case)

The games often referred to Aigis as a mechanical maiden, but that doesn't necessarily write it off as non-canon (and neither does the fact that Genesis is the only anti-shadow weapon without a Greek Persona)

Also with Naoto a lot of people argue there's no way her hair could get that long in less than a year :P

So...I dunno. I know Atlus has recognized the novel, but I don't think they've said anything about whether it's canon or not.

I'm choosing to believe it's not until something says otherwise.
