Happy Thanksgiving everyone and what a treat we have with this weeks episode of Persona 4 as the gang goes on their camping trip. A nice mix of humor and a bit of intrigue on the murder mystery. The format is pretty similar to the game with the mystery food X, tent sleep over hijinks, and swim suits scene, which all flowed well and let us have some fun with the characters. What I find interesting is what they added.
First comes Naoki Konishi, younger brother of Saki Konishi. His behavior at first is very harsh to our main characters due to the events of his sister's murder but we also learn of people always being sorry for him for his lost, which he is getting tired of it. However, a few kind words and a nice offering of a Aiya beef bowl helps keep his mind off of these annoyances. As a person who just recently lost a love one, it can be annoying to have people try and comfort you out of no where. It reinsuring to have some people offer some real help. And hopefully we'll see more of Naoki as having friends would help him a lot.
Next is the additional information on our murder case as the gang figures out that the way a person gets thrown in to the TV is by being on TV. Its interesting that they put it here instead of having it when Kanji was joining the group but their in a more private area to discuss this matter as it has importance to the story later on. I mean, what else can you talk about when you're picking up trash?
Next week Rise is going to show it all off! Investigation team, GO!
