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.

Thou shalt get a much needed slap to the face when creating personas of the Dickhead Arcana.

I think she's trying to say in a roundabout way that she has feelings for MC, who just straight up shoots her down in return.

Hated that little prick all the wat until the end. Other people I gradually started to like, Tanaka for example. But Nozomi i always hated.

"Look, man, we both know I'm putting up with you because I want Helel, so make with the introspection already."

Pretty much sums up the (admittedly rare) occasion when there's a Social Link I just don't want to deal with.

Never watched or played School Days...it did not seem all that interesting to me...and after finding out the...well climax of the series...I said, nope not gonna watch. I've seen gore...but that's just dark for the sake of being dark.

I feel like this would happen with the female Social Links (plus Aigis) (I don't know the options, so I'm just guessing).
For Junpei, she would turn out to be the one selling pictures of herself in gym clothes.
For Rio, she would keep skipping practice and go out with everyone else on the team without Rio. Or say that Kenji hates her.
She would treat Ken like a little kid and/or shame him for wanting revenge.
For Saori, she would distribute copies of that magazine that gave Saori a bad reputation. Or just call her an old lady.
She would also treat Ryoji like a little kid, since that's how she saw Pharos.
She would completely neglect Koromaru, and keep scratching his tummy even though he hates it. And insists that she's right.
She would completely reject Akihiko because that's how the link actually gets broken.
She calls the cops on Shinjiro when he uses suppressants.
And for Aigis, she kills and eats the cat they're looking for.

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.
