Isn't FeMC canon?

In another world in the Amala Universe? It seems like every route in every Shin Megami Tensei game can be considered canon when you take the Amala Universe in consideration. It's like in one world this happened, and in another this did.

Or maybe in another universe in the Megami Tensei Multiverse... o_O

they say that it takes place in an alternate universe where the mc is female. so personally i consider it canon

Sure, it's canon to one universe that is never brought up again ever, if you want to be pedantic about it.

In an alternate universe yes. But in the main games the male protgaonist is the canon one. He's the one in the manga, he's an alternate costume for Yu in P4 arena, and he's the main character of the movie. Sucks FEMC doesen't get noticed nearly as much, but oh well.

Fortunately, with the release of P4G, we can say with better definiteness what the developer's intention toward the P3 protagonists is.

1. Here is a screenshot of the English version of the post-battle dialog with Margaret in P4:

Note that she refers to the P3 protagonist as "young man, which I have circled in red in this picture.

2. Here is a screenshot of the Japanese version of the post-battle dialog with Margaret in P4:
http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee177/rdestiny/persona3/margpost_02je.jpg

Note that the corresponding word is "shounen," which is Japanese for young man or boy. This word is specifically male.

3. Here is a screenshot of the Japanese version of the post-battle dialog with Margaret in P4G:

Note that the keyword here has been changed to "kyakujin," which is Japanese for guest. This word is gender neutral.

As Atlus has seen fit to update P4G's dialog to use gender neutral references to the P3 protagonist, we can confidently say that the lack of reference to a female protagonist in the segments preceding P3P's release--the Answer and P4--is simply because Atlus has not gotten to update them.

Yeah, I basically meant in an other universe that hasn't been explored further. As in The Answer, Peraona 4 G/A take place in Minato's universe, while we don't know what happens in Minako's.

As I have just shown, we do not know whether P4G follows the male or female protagonist. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure which protagonist preceded P4A--I suspect Atlus did not indicate one.

Indeed. Now i laugh at all those haters who keep on insisting her story will never be canon.

As it stands, P3P is a huge step in the development of the SMT world and not just fanservice.

And... Holy crap. Out there in the chaos is a living Shinjiro. *imagines Shinji b****ing out instead of Yukari in a SheMC Answer*
