Persona Series in a nutshell:
Boi, the gods have gone crazy and only Philemon and a large nosed elegant old man recruit students who feel out of this society and/or world to make them know that the power of friendship and summoning stands are powerful against anything
So I was looking at the persona casts’ ages at around the time P5 would be taking place and I’m crying.
K, so on the wiki, people have gaged Rise to be about 21 by the end of the game (cause she’s apparently developed a sex appeal after hitting 20. It’s in game during a commercial thingy I’m pre sure. Can’t recall 100% when off the top of my head though), so this has the game taking place at least 4 years after all the P4 shenanigans. This puts our yaso-second year babies at about 21-22, and Nao and Kanji at about 20-21
With this in mind, the port island-second years are 24, third years are 25, anD KEN MY SMOL SON IS
E I G H T E E N.
(Again, this is with the belief that the game falls in line with the 2016/2017 year)
THEN - here’s where it hits - this means that the main babes from P2IS (Tatsu, Ei, etc) are 35, Naoya/Earring Babe’s crew from P1 are in and around 37-38, Maya is 40, Katsuya is 42…
You guys I started crying my faves aren’t teenagers anymore I shouldn’t be emotional about this dammit
