Igor was once again not presence when Yuu went to the Velvet Room. Only Margaret was there to greet him and told him that he has yet again obtained another Arcana: the Emperor. I guess that's Tatsumi Kanji's Persona.
Anyway, it is already Summer and the kids no longer have to wear that hideous coat. I gotta say that I'm digging the school Summer uniform, and in a totally perverted way too. I guess Yousuke and I can be the best of friends in this regard lol.
And since it's Summer, it wouldn't be complete without a school camping trip. Well, at least this is better than a beach episode, right? In fact this was way better since they helped cleaning up the forest too. Yep, they definitely sending the right message to the audience.
Turned out that both Yukiko and Chie were a phailure when it comes to cooking. I can understand if it was just Chie but Yukiko too? She sure looks like someone who is good at house chores, including cooking, don't you think? I was laughing so hard when Yousuke and Yuu almost died from eating their curry. The reaction, especially that of Yuu, was just too funny even though I have already expected it.
But hey worry not. Aika to the rescue! lol she can deliver food basically anywhere, can she and she's available 24/7 too. How convenient.
Also, looked like Yousuke's dream to sleep in the same tent with the girls really did comes true though it wasn't as pleasant as he hoped it would be. And what do you know, we still got to see the girls in swimsuit all thanks to Yousuke's thoughtfulness. I just have so much fun with all of the scenes regarding this paragraphs. Bear in mind that I am usually very critical when it comes to swimsuit scenes so once again Persona 4 the Animation has done it the right way. I love the exchanged of reactions between the boys and the girls and Yuu with his deadpan face... he can't do wrong with that.
If that wasn't enough to make me laugh, the fact that Kanji got rejected by the Pig just got me laughed harder. That was unexpected and a tad of embarrassing to watch lol. NANJASORIA indeed.
But it wasn't all fun and games for Yuu and Yousuke. They found Konishi Naoki who blatantly said that he hated them both out of the blue. Well, I guess he has grudged against Yousuke because of his sister's murder.
Half way through the episode, Kanji joined them and so they learned about Naoki a little bit more since he was Kanji's childhood friend. In fact, he practically dragged Naoki to where the guys were and suddenly they all became a best of friends. Turned out Yuu just have to offer him a bowl of beef noodle to get him opened up. That and not sugar coating his questions. It made sense that Naoki felt more alive with these guys since everyone else were just trying to ensure that he was okay, that he wasn't affected by the murder and have a high expectation of him.
This just fired up the guys to catch the culprit as soon as possible but we kept hearing the same words being repeated over and over again without much progress. Oh well, at least they have awakened their persona. They kept trying to find clues and connection of the murders.
Maybe they got it right this time. After all, everything seem to be connected to a TV one way or the other from the Midnight Channel to how they are sucked into that TV world. So they were going to pay more attention to the TV and checked out different channels just to be sure. I reckoned they will be quite busy because it tends to rain a lot during the summer right? And so they'll be more Midnight Channel than usual?
*shrugs* I was just guessing.
Anyhoo, yay for another fun and well written episode of Persona 4. I seriously have no complain about this show as of yet. Yep, I'm a happy camper!
