the "otome-ness" of P3P (Persona 3 Portable)

I know no one is probably interested in any updates on Persona 3 Portable now since it has been out for a while. But I felt I really have the "NEED" to write this post because I can't stop laughing at the "otome approach" of this game in order to gain female gamers xDDD



Okay, although Persona 3 Portable is not officially labeled as a otome game, but with the addition of a female protagonist that allows you to have "love ending" with the guys in the game, it is pretty much a RPG game with otome aspect added to it xD



Okay, I say despite the addition of a female protagonist, you can SOOOOO tell this game was written from man's point of view.

Why? Because as a otome gamer, I cannot help but laugh at how the:

HEROINE IS ABLE TO SLEEP WITH MORE THAN ONE MEN THROUGHOUT THE GAME, AND NOT ONLY THAT, SHE CAN SLEEP WITH THOSE MEN SEVERAL TIMES.

Like, I am serious xD
Even playing R18+ otome games, only with the "designated harem ending" will you find the heroine sleeping with more than one guy. Otherwise, according to otome standard, the heroine pretty much sticks to one guy, and if it is a H game, probably will H with the same guy many times.

Anyhow back to P3P, while the love aspect is very minimal because it is really a RPG game and not otome game, but still, while you go around levelling up, killing monsters, upping your parameters, you have to make sure you please ALL 3 guys in order to get love endings with them.



The 3 guys are:

Sanada Akihiko
Aragaki Shinjiro
Amada Ken

While at the same time, you are free to have *** with these guys too ^_^

Teodore
Mizuki Ryoji (no picture for him because he is secret character)

So in summary, in one round you get to:

sleep with 5 guys, and you get to pick to sleep multiple times with Sanada and Amada ^_^

And it goes in this order...

Aragaki gets to do it first according to the timeline, followed by Teodore, then Mizuki, then Sanada or Amada depending on you.

So yes, I was kinda thinking, OMG, this woman is such a ^*^&%$!! Not to mention many times the choices given to you makes you go, "Do I have to pick them?" XD;;;

Anyway, I thought I would share some screenshots for each of the routes in case anyone wants to know the otome aspect of the game and couldnt be bothered to complete the whole game. Because I heard, only by playing through the second time can you get individual endings with the guys, and yes, I have no life so i played through twice to see what the fuss was all about OTZ

Aragaki's route:

Aragaki pretty much only appears half way through the game, and he is supposed to be Sanada's best friend. Don't forget in order to get individual endings, you are required to attain max love commu with the 3 guys, so by this time when the heroine first met Aragaki, she was pretty much already lovey dovey with Sanada xD;;;

Anyway, because Aragaki's situation is different, you only have about one month to ensure you max out his commu, so I wasted no time and stalk him for a month. AND YESSSSSSSSSSSSS I GOT HIS LOVE CONFESSIONNNNNN!!

The below situation happens after you have maxed out his commu. In order to get love ending with him, you must visit him again afterwards, and you get this message saying "you cannot increase anymore commu with him because it's already maxed out, but do you still want to spend time with him?"

So pick yes and then thisssssssssssss happens!!! (´・艸・) (And this event is voiced!!!! <333 Nakaiiiii~~~)


me: *puppy eyes* @v@
Aragaki: ...even if you look at me with those eyes, you won't be getting anything you know.


Aragaki: Not to mention, why are you bothering with me?
Me: Because I love you, senpai *kira kira eyes*


Aragaki: Huh? ( ̄△ ̄)

OMG, HAHAHAHAHA, HE IS BLUSHING HAHAHAHAHA


Aragaki: St-stop making fun of me!!
Aragaki: Not, not to mention...to say such thing, in this place!!


Okay, this is because I approached him while he was standing there in the lounge where EVERYONE ELSE were.

Then wonderful system gave me these 2 choices ==;;;


1. Can I go to your room?
2. Want to come to my room?

WTF ARE WITH THESE CHOICES??? Σw(゚д゚* )wわぉ!!

So since I wasn't really given any decent choices, I decided, okay, let's go all the way and I picked...

I WANNA GO TO YOUR ROOM (*○゚∀゚O)


Aragaki: BA-BAKA!!! *doki doki*

LOLLLLL, you can so tell Aragaki was secretly blossoming flowers in his mind with that HAHAHAHAHAHA
Then while I was laughing away at his reaction, then he said this!!


Aragaki: I...I am not a gentleman. No way will I let you into my room.

HAHAHAHAHA, OMG, HE IS ONE BIG BAD WOLF??? HAHAHAHA

So here finally you were given the choice to back away, but hey, since I came this far, not gonna back away now!!
yes I am a pervert 8DDDDDD


1. BUT I STILL WANNA GO!
2. I understand.

So of course I picked the first choice


Aragaki: NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

<---is on the floor rolling around laughing

Then I was given another BBQ choice xD


Aragaki: You need to treasure yourself more. Stop wasting time with me *emoing*
1. I DUN CARE!!!
2. Even that, I still love you, senpai!

So either way, both choices takes you to the same place, it just depends on how desperate you wanna sound ==;;

Then I kinda "pushed" him into his room, according to what the system says HAHAHAHA
Then he was like, "okay, fine, you are in my room now. Are you happy? Now go back to your room." Kinda thing. And then I get to insist that I WILL NOT go back to my room.

Then the screen goes black....xD


Suddenly, he held me in his arms.


Aragaki: Do something...I am totally...PWNED
Me: 8D;;;


Aragaki: I sleep and awake, all I think about is you.
Aragaki: Dammit, I didn't plan on this to happen...



Aragaki: So understand where I am coming from. Go back to your room.


Aragaki: If not, I will not let you leave later.
Me: LALALALA~ I am not hearing you 8DDDDD


Aragaki: ...in that case. I will not stop.

KYAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! xDDDDD
Wonderful screen goes black again letting you know that "YOU THEN SPEND A LOOOOOOONG TIME TOGETHER WITH ARAGAKI"

.....xD;;;;

Okay, I know this is supposed to be "romantic" but I can't stop laughing HAHAHAHAHA

Anyway, if you have managed to get this event, then you will find that later when you guys fight the big shadow boss, Aragaki actually didnt die, but he turned vegetable instead OTZ

This is telling you that you are free to go flirt everyone else....

Allllllllll that aside, at the very end of the game, you get to hear from this girl in your class that apparently Aragaki had awaken from his coma and has recovered!!!

Then on the last day when you were given the choice who to pick, just pick Aragaki and you will get his ED. (Which seriously, was only 2 seconds long....orz)


Aragaki: Don't make a sick person do the impossible...(because he was running to find you on rooftop, yes, he was trying to beat all the other guys you have slept along the way to get to you first ROFL)


Aragaki: Although I have forgotten many things, but only this feeling I have towards you have not been lost...

In case people have no idea what he is saying, basically the ending is that you have defeated the big boss and because of that, everything returns to normal and therefore everyone have forgotten about the existence of shadows, the time gap between the days etc. So none of you are supposed to remember fighting and battling enemies together etc.


Argaki: Haha...how forgetful of of me...


Aragaki: While I was in coma, the person I saw in my dreams was you...


Aragaki: You cried and you laughed...


Aragaki pulled me into his arms and held me tight...


Aragaki: Ahh...this is not a dream...


Aragaki: You are here with me...

Then while the two of you were lovey dovey, you can hear the approaching footsteps of the other guys LOL


Aragaki: haha...dammit, those guys have come to interrupt us...
Me: OMG KARMA!! KARMAAAAAAAAA

But no, luckily karma did not hit HAHAHAHA, and that was the end with Aragaki before the credits rolled out xD;;;

Sanada's route:

Sanada is probably the "cannon" of this game? XD;;
Because it requires the whole year to actually up his commu to finally get a love ending with him.
Not to mention you had to answer particular answers to lead you to become couples with him. The first time I played, I didnt know, so even though my commu with him maxed out, I was only able to be friends with him T^T

So anyway, after you have managed to answer the right questions during the different events, at about level 9 of his commu, he will take you to the rooftop and then tells you how much he thought of you as his dead sister. (Way to go, Sanada, that is the way to get a woman to fall in love with you ==;;;;;)

Anyway, then he tells you for some reason he used to think it was fun hanging out with you but nowadays whenever he is with you, he just feels like he is on a roller coaster ride, with his emotions going up and down.

So I told him,

ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH ME 8DDDDDD

Then Sanada was like, "OHHHH, SO THIS IS LOVE. OKIES!"


Sanada: Then I wish for you to become mine.

Then of course you get to choose to reject him or accept him. So yeah, choose "YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!" and then you will go onto couple's route with him ^^

Then on the 10th event, this happened 8D~~~


Sanada: If, it's fine with you...err...


Sanada: Do you want to come to my room?

.....
........WTF?


So since you didnt have a choice as usual, then you ended up in his room.

But once the two of you were in the room, he was suddenly very silent and so were you. And he told you he wasn't used to this kind of stuff.

Then wonderful system gave you 3 choices 8D


1. You mean inviting girls to your room?
2. You are cute >D (Because this is not my first time in another man's room)
3. I also am not sure what to do...(Yup, play innocent)

So since I am ebil, I picked the second choice. xD


Sanada: What, dont, dont make fun of me!
Me: 8DDDDD (because compared to you I am senpai in this aspect)

I mean, COME ON! By about this time, you would have already slept with Arakagi, Teodore and Mizuki, and maybe Amada if you decide to max his commu first.

Poor Sanada, not knowing the REAL you then acts all sweet and senpai like...


Sanada: When you are down and unhappy, I am here for you.
Me: awwww (;∀;)


Sanada: Can I call you by your first name?
Me: Sure :"D


Sanada: ...love you :"D

GAWD, WHY IS HE MAKING ME FEEL SO BAD? OTZ

Anyway, then he goes on to say how happy for you to be "here". Then he suddenly says this to rub it in HAHAHAHA


Sanada: Ah! When I said "here" I wasn't referring to this room!


Sanada: Just because I invite you to my room doesnt mean I was having "other aims"
Me: HAHAHAHA, SANADA, YOU ARE JUST MAKING IT WORSE 8DDD


Sanada: ...What? Stop laughing, baka.
Me: Eh? How did you know I was rolling on the floor laughing? o_O


Sanada: Would you call me by my firstname too?
Me: AkiiiiiiiiiiHIKOOOOOOO w(≧▽≦)w


Sanada: I will make you happy.


Sanada: That is why, RABU ME MOAR :"D
Me:...are you in love with yourself?

Then LALALALALA~ screen darkens and this pops up


FOR A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG TIME, I SPENT IT WITH AKIHIKO.

ROFLLLLL, I thought Sanada said he didnt have other motives?? HAHAHAHAHA

Apparently, that wasn't the end.

Every Monday and Fridays where Sanada usually awaits for you at the corridor, if you go visit him, he asks if you are free, and if you said yes, then this happens.


Sanada: Then...again...


Sanada: Want to come to my place?

WTF?? Seriously, why for a Japanese guy, a date with a girlfriend always had to be in his room?? I mean, what else would they be doing IN HIS ROOM??



Awww, see? Now this room is known to you as "AKIHIKO'S ROOM"

Then because when the both of you were alone in the room, "................" silence then follows.


Sanada: Say, say something!!


LOLLLL
1. Senpai should be the one to say something!
2. Even if you ask me....
3. Should I call you Akihiko...?

I recommend you to try all 3 options, but anyway, I picked the first one.


LALALALA~ Screen turns black again because Sanada hold you in his arms
Sanada: How could I say something...??


From Akihiko's chest, I could hear his thumping heartbeat...

So you get to tell him that you found out that he was actually also really nervous.


Sanada: Ba...BAKA!
Sanada: Dont say it!!



Sanada: ...I will shut you up then.

LOLLLLLL, then screen goes black again telling you that you SPENT A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG TIME again with Sanada.

So yeah, you can keep going back to visit him every Monday and Friday, and then he will take you to his room to "ahem" 8DDDD

Then at the end when you get to pick out of the 3 guys, if you pick Sanada then this happens.

He runs to you on the rooftop and then hooooooolds you tight.




Sanada: When I couldnt find you, I thought you have gone somewhere...

Then he tells you he finally remembered everything.


Sanada: Including how I have fallen in love with you, the leader.

But that is really it ==;;;;
You guys heard the footsteps of other dudes running towards you but unlike Arakagi, Sanada didnt get jealous (because he doesnt know 8DDDD) and said, "Wow, I think the others also had their memories back."

Amada's route:

Okay, seriously, the whole going after Amada is just wronggggggggggggggggg. SERIOUSLY WRONGGGGGGGGGG!!

Come on!! That boy is only in primary school, and is SIX, I repeat, SIXXXXXX years younger than you!! Doing anything to him is just a crime!!!

But nooooo, obviously in this game it didnt matter. So throughout Amada's events, he kept saying that he is sad for being the little boy and wanted to become more "adult" for you, and he keeps asking with his veryyyy innocent eyes stuff like, "Am I better than Sanada senpai? Would you pick me instead of Sanada senpai?"

And I was forced MANY times to lie to the little boy and tell him that yes, I would pick him over Sanada any day.
BUT WE ALL KNOW, SHE IS SLEEPING WITH MANYYYYYY GUYS. OTZ

So anyway, on the 10th event, Amada suddenly made this request.


Amada: Can, can I go to your room?
Me: OMIGAWD, WHY DOES HE LOOK SO INNOCENT WHEN HE ASKS THIS QUESTION?? (」゚□°)」

Then of course ebil woman you are, you gave him the warm smile and invited him to your room.


Amada: I, I'm sorry that I was looking all over your room...
Me: It's okay, is there anything strange?


Amada: No, there is nothing strange.
Amada: It's just all "you"



Amada: I know I am much younger than you.
Me: HELL YEAH, BY SIX YEARS!


Amada: I was always bothered by it, but now, I am beginning to think it's a good thing.


Amada: Because I dont die BEFORE you.
Me: NANUUUUUU?? ARE YOU PICKING A FIGHT WITH ME??


Amada: I will always be able to be beside you. I will never leave you behind.
Me: another words, you are saying I will not be a widow if I am with you? ==


Amada: That is why, please smile for me, and live for my sake.
Me: 生意気なガキだな、お前・・・


I sensed a strong will and deept love from Amada...

I guess, I shall forgive you because this is little boy's way of expressing love T^T
Then on comes the ebil choice...


Amada: you, you also declare it.


Amada: That you also wish to be with me...


Amada: Pick no one else but me...
Me: GUILTTTTTTTTTTT, OMG THE GUILTTTTTTTTTTTTTT


HAHAHAHA, ebil choices again.
1. I swear. (Yeah, lie blatantly)
2. I love you too~ (avoid the question with something sweet)
3. Errr.... (I cant lie...)

But since I am ebil, I picked the first one 8DDD
(actually I picke the 2nd one first, but then he realised that I wasnt willing to swear and he thought I was a little subtle. But still he was sure he will endeavour to make me eventually pick him)

Anyway, I picked the first one and lied to his face 8DDD


Amada: I...I love you.

OMG, I FEEL SO BADDDDDDD OTZ

Then it got worse...


Amada: Can I stay here....a little longer?
Me: NOOOO, GOOOO, I AM NOT A LADY AND THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!! (eh? Why am I suddenly the Aragaki in this situation?)

THEN OMIGAWD....THIS POPPED UP.


I spent a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time with Amada.

....
.......
.............

OTZ

Same as Sanada, after that if you visit him, he will go to your room and then you get to spend LOOOOOONG time with him again. But he did make it more obviously what you guys were doing by telling you that...

I WILL MAKE YOU AS DOKIDOKI AS HOW I AM FEELING RIGHT NOW.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU LITTLE BOY??? YOU TALKING DIRTY EH??

Onto the ending...

You pick him, yeahhhhh (given into guilt)


Amada: You wont go anywhere right? You will stay beside me right?


Amada pulled me into his arms...

hey, I wonder what it's like to be hugged by someone half your height? 8DDDD


Amada: Stay beside me...

And same as Sanada, when he heard footsteps of the others, he didnt get jealous and just said he was glad everyone else also have gotten their memories back.

Seriously, it's because you have no idea what this woman was doing behind your back...

That's it for the otome aspect of the game. 8D

It's wrong....SO WRONG IN MANY WAYS....
That aside, this is a really fun game, highly highly recommended!
