The Persona series, and the franchise from which it was born, have more or less carved out a reputation as pushing against the traditional mindsets and chosen subject matter of the JRPG. Which is true, and the series remains a breath of fresh air in many regards.
Nonetheless, reading about a game that purports to be about breaking free from old values leaves me with one eyebrow firmly raised for one reason: And at first, the game seemed to live up to that hopeful premise. It all feels, ultimately, like lip service: As we head into this section, a question: Is this enough cultural context for you, TvTropes?
And up against those clear exaggerations the writers put something that many young people strive for, that they feel is their only option to reconcile how they feel and how they are perceived a fact that was agonizingly illustrated in American media not long agoand paint it explicitly as the wrong choice.
Naoto has no independent will to her choices. Naoto is a puppet of coding whose modes of thought are entirely dictated by the people who wrote her. She has no feelings to be hurt.

I can point you to at least one 18 year old kid who took it pretty damn hard at the time, and I cannot imagine what it might have felt like for a Japanese teenager receiving the same message without even the distance of a different culture. While this is on the surface true cultures on opposite ends of the world are different, you say? Putting aside for another the long shoujo tradition of characters who bend presentation while still expressing on some level heteronormative desire and traits a la Oscar from Rose of Versaillesand a longstanding cultural image blurring male homosexuality and femme presentation not unlike America in the 40s and 50ssensitive portrayals of trans characters have increasingly found key places in Japanese pop culture: Almost like a caged bird.
Naoto Shirogane An up and coming young detective who moved to Inaba in the guise of a male. Naoto is extremely smart and deductive.
Her issue is whether she should change to fit the world or stay herself. Rise Kujikawa The beyond bubbly former idol Risette that decided to quit her career and live the average life.

It's hard to express but Rise's link is about some sort of bottled up regret or accepting her decision. Yumi Ozawa Star of the drama club and delightfully enthusiastic despite that big ass forehead. Yumi faces paternal separation and a great disdain for her father in which you must help resolve. Ayane Matsunaga A fantastic loli in the band club who is an extreme pushover with very little talent.
Ayane has to confront this timidness with the protagonist and gain experience playing her trumpet.Persona 4 Golden - Naoto Social Link MAX *Lovers Path* (Voiced)
Ai Ebihara The initial bitchy delinquent character that could care less if half the school died. Surprisingly, Ai may have the most relatable story of all the females. She deals with crush issues and self-esteem. Still the least favored among the fans iirc. Marie A fellow attendant of the Velvet Room along with Margaret. Marie was added into Golden with a mysterious backstory. The protagonist shows her what it means to have friends and all that merry stuff while also figuring out who she is.
Romance Events Despite all the kidnappings and a murderer running lose, there are events with girls depending on if you romanced them or not. Of course it's Japanese stuff like going to festivals and what not. I thought it was cool enough and pretty appropriate.
Good lord did Golden hurt my feelings. Valentine's Day is a deep event in which your desired romance comes to you for a date and talk about the future while mentioning other self-important topics.
The kicker is that if you romanced more than one girl, ALL of them will come to you with sad lines of how they wanted to spend the day with you.

Forgot to mention its all fucking voiced. Hinted Relationships You know what makes you feel like an asshole? Stealing girls from other characters even after the game hints at an obvious relationship.
Case and point being Kanji and Naoto.
