Its here, the festival episode and it not just any anime festival episode but a Persona 4 one.
The festival event was one of my favorite moments in the game and now the anime since it was really letting lose all of the characters in some sort of strange event. We finally get to see the rendition of Romeo and Juliet / Hamlet, Yu trying to avoid fortunetelling Margaret from Ai, and the group dating café goes well with YU getting in to character. By far the best one was the famous beauty and cross-dressing pageant. Seeing the people's reactions to the guys dress up was just hilarious. I still wonder how was Naoto able to pull off dressing Teddie up? The beauty pageant also had some nice comedy moments
While all of this was happening, Yu was getting his social link on with Ayane Matsunaga (Sun arcana). Her story isn't very dramatic as Yumi Ozawa was but it a nice one that is supported by Yu helpful nature. It was also nice that they gave it little more time for her little story to develop than some other social links. There was also some development with Rise as she's figuring out what she wants to do with her life. It looks like Yu is taking the friendly route with Rise problem instead of the lover which means he may be looking at someone else to fall in love with.
The fun isn't over yet as we head to the Amagi Inn for some hot bath time.
