How Not to Play Persona 3 by ancret How Not to Play Persona 3 by ancret
2015 UPDATE YO DEVIANTART, I'M ON TUMBLR NOW: strawberry-jan.tumblr.com/

So about a month ago, I decided to enter a forum contest to win a copy of the latest re-release of Persona 3. I took it as an excuse to finish all those social link comics I said I'd do when I played the game for the first time, years ago.

EDIT: AAAAA I WON SECOND PLACE! <3 <3 <3

EDIT 2: Oh wow, you people are amazing with all your kind comments! I probably should have done this before, but this dude here ---> :iconrymagnusson: was instrumental to the making of this comic as a sounding-board for all my dumb ideas and sketches. He is also very good at drawing personas! Go and see!!

All three of you who haven't played the game in some form or another over the years, please be forewarned that this comic contains massive social link and endgame spoilers.

I wonder if anyone played a Persona game to make the protagonists (except Aigis) complete jerks. So far, I haven't seen anyone do that =P

What made me laugh the most was the epic purple thought balloon. Though the last panels are just as funny and may allude to what might happen if he didn't die/sacrifice himself to keep Nyx at bay.

Please tell me you have something about the fourth one

On the FeMC route, that Ryoji sob SLink is date specific and requires full on attention. Damn it! So close to max all ranks first playthrough. :<

I just realized that this comic is probably EXACTLY why there's always at least 1 Social Link that progresses via advancing the plot.

I think Tanaka is licking Minato's shoes. Tanaka said he would do anything for Minato to stop him from telling the press that Tanaka scammed him, even lick his shoes.

Wow, just wow.  I know it's kind of funny that to max all the Social Link you have to basically act like however the link wants you to act but this really, really shoves that down your throat.  I love the idea that Nyx, the ultimate embodiment of humanity's despair of longing for death, just ups and kills itself over disgust with how Minato acts.  Brilliant.
