I know Soejima designed the characters for this one.
But Touko's Persona, Kushinada-Hime never appeared in any of the artwork in the original novel (and since I can't read Japanese, I dunno if it was ever physically described) what I'm wondering if when it pops up in the manga do you think that Soejima will have still done the design, or that Satoshi Shiki (guy drawing the manga) is just gonna wing it with his own design? --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/

I have no source to back this up (I guess I could try tracking down the thing they're talking about, but I'm willing to guess it's in Japanese and wouldn't do me much good even if I did) but this is a post I just saw on the Mayonaka Midnight forums regarding the novel/manga
Anyway, according to the comment of Hashino at the Dengeki news site, the novel appears to be canon as they say that it takes place in the same timeline as P3 and P4.
So if anyone wants to check that out...y'know...go for it. Let us know if you learn anything.
If Hashino says it is, then it is. No arguing that. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/

Anyone gonna read it? when it gets translated and scanned
blegh, I was interested until I found out that it isn't canon. But Naoto also looks really submissive, kind of a turn off for me.
her new look is cool though. --- GT: PhantazyStar | PSN: PhantasyStar23 Japanese Dubs: Raw passion | English Dubs: Actual personality

It actually might be. Supposedly Hashino might have said it is and supposedly outlined the story, and Soejima did the character designs.
I dunno, right now I'm actually thinking it's closer to canon than not. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/

If she doesn't have a boner for the MC, I'll be sad.
