But you accepted that a long time ago, didn’t you Lan Fan?
Day 1 of LingFan Week; prompt: Masks. I am so excited to see what everyone does for LingFan week. I’ve been checking tumblr all day. This piece took me so long to finish, it was a 3 day haul. I haven’t even finished all the prompts, so I may upload pencil sketches to fill in the later days. Ciao!!
As much as I adore the IS cast (I love my Masked Circle babies) I do have a lot of love for the EP cast as well especially since I played EP when I needed a break from the eternally 17 years old RPG characters.
Why the EP cast is awesome and why I hope that a future Persona title will include an adult cast again:
-with the exception of Tatsuya (18 years old) everyone is older than 20 years which was awesome since it was a change (I kinda needed that change since I played way too many RPG with teenage centered casts). Even Tatsuya is on the verge of adulthood and becomes more mature in the game
-the characters actually earn their own money already and have jobs and they even own trashy apartments
-allowing the series to develop further and not excluding adults from being Persona users
-life beyond high school (way too many video games portray 17/18 aka. high school as the prime of life)
-the characters looks, dress and act appropriate to their age
-Tatsuya (despite EP revolving around him since he talks now) is seen as the “kid”
and last but not least:
EP having an awesome female silent MC with Maya who had great character development in IS who is a role model and a strong heroine.
