  1. The enemy.
  2. You mean the Social Link? Or the Reaper?
  3. Well Death seems scary.
  4. Wait until you get access to the Compendium. There's no way to get Orpheus back otherwise, and he can be used to fuse one of the best personas in the game near the end.
  5. Hmm, guess I'll just try different things and see what happens. On another note, would you recommend Fusioning Orpheus and Pixie early or hold on to them?
  6. Sometimes it's better to study to raise academics or do something else to increase your performance. You can take on part-time jobs, you can go to bed early for a chance to get into great condition, and there are even a couple of social links only available at night.
  7. So I just had my first after school phase, and now I'm wondering if there's any real reason not to go to Tartarus at night :P
  8. Heh, well great =P For me the movie just really, really needed some highly memorable characters and/or a more engaging plot (so many times I was just like... okay... that happens).
  9. Btw, you saying you don't even remember what Princess Mononoke was about made me realize that I don't remember much about it either, despite having loved it, so I rewatched it and... Holy crap, was it even better. It's weird how much more you can realize just ten years later. I still think it's a beautiful movie, but now I see that it has an amazing, universal message that is presented in a way that really does it way more justice than any other Green Aesop/hate is bad movie. Essentially, it's Pocahontas if Pocahontas realized that the spiral of hate turns everyone into monsters and perpetuates itself constantly, even if that hate is pretty much always justified, that all sides of a conflict are "human", in simple terms, and that they're diverse even within themselves, with lots of disagreements and strife even between people who have the same goal. There's a theme of the destructiveness of human ambition, which many movies have, but unlike most, this film shows the true tragedy of the situation: progress IS good for us and we can't just stop it to save nature even though we still need nature very much. We need to accept that something needs to die so something can be born, but we also shouldn't forget to temper that ambition once in a while. And the ending is just perfect - no matter how good your intentions, go kind you are, and how much you do, you cannot just end hate. It's a long process that requires time, patience, both sides healing, and whether it's really possible or not, it's still up in the air. Generations of prejudice won't just disappear because of a magical power of love - but it's a start.

    So yeah. The film is even more beautiful than I remembered.
  10. Sure :P
