How Not to Play Persona 3 by ancret How Not to Play Persona 3 by ancret
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.

Good one!
Oh who am I kidding, I also F***** up.
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.

Someone needs to compose a version of "The Poem for Everyone's Souls" that sounds like Yakety Sax just to play over the montage sequence here.

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.

The moral of the story kids is that if you're a dick to everyone in an incredibly hilarious fashion that you won't have to give up your soul to seal away Nyx when you go to stop her from being about the end of all things as we know it.

The most hilarious thing about this comic is that some of these things are actually options you can choose to say!

...They just don't completely ruin the bond in the actual game.
