Japanese reading report

This week, same as last, was basically dedicated to P5R. Since last week I’ve finished both November and December and am currently working on the post-game content that was added in Royal. The hardest part this week was definitely the final boss’s philosophizing, which is par for the course so far (it’s the same in both Scramble and Q2). Fortunately this was also a lot of fun; I love learning new (old) words and the way these ancient gods speak always gets me excited. I’ve been cruising through the new content too; a lot of it is voiced and I’m able to keep up with it in real time despite obviously not having played it before. I hope to beat the game today or tomorrow.

On the same track, I’ve started reading 女神異聞録ペルソナ, the manga adaptation of the first game in the series. Finished vol. 1 the other day and it’s quite enjoyable. Based on what I’ve seen I don’t know that I would be able to get into the gameplay of 1&2, so it’s nice to be able to catch up on the lore.

I skipped 夜市 this weekend (the book club updates on Fridays, which only gives me a couple of days until reports are due). Still keeping up with it but I’ll read this week’s section during this week to reset the schedule.
