Her social link sucked

What is even the point if her social link? Who gives a shit about that rostie and her criminal boyfriend?
I know Makoto development happens later in the game but the social link is just unbearable

        You’re watching the girl who was a closed off ice princess like her sister learning how to hang out with normies and have fun. I didn’t like the social link either but it’s pretty obvious that the newness of their friendship is part of the point.

    The whole appeal of Makoto is the superiority complex and the "not like the other girls" thing. How all of the other "modern women" are stupid bimbo prostitutes and Makoto is a perfect good girl.

    So it reflects her character pretty well. Look at any Makoto waifu poster and tell me I'm wrong.

        Why is sonic the hedgehog so strongly associated with autism

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          The short of it is most Autists prefer cartoons (I.E Sonic) due to the characters being easier to read + simpler personalities. Sonic stories usually tackle "more mature and cool" topics while also remaining cartoony.
          This fact in particular is why SA2 drives everyone fricking wild online since it has glowie conspiracies and child murder.
          Because of this, it makes the perfect middle ground between literal baby shit like bluey or real live-action films. This mentality is also why anime is big with tism, which of course explains Ganker.

      Makoto is one of the few characters in 5 that doesn't come across as flawed, she's a mary sue. I will say she's better in Strikers and Q2 where she's a lot less obnoxious, and borderline not really there. Haven't played Tactica to comment.

              Sumire is extremely shilled, even outside of Confidant, Joker has an unusual number of dialogue with her while with most other NPCs he barely goes above: "I agree" "That isn't true" "Cheeky/Snarky comment".
              With Sumire he actively asks her stuff about her everyday life and interests.

      Man, I am replaying the game and the first 2 Palaces are great.
      >Kamoshida
      Meme journos and normalhomosexuals wank it too much, but is still a pretty good intro that manages to inform you about the main concept of the game and the 1st 4 main characters perfectly. Also tells a good story about a minor power hungry adult that uses its position to abuse kids.
      >Madarame
      This one is heavily carried by Yusuke (at this point) being the best character of the game. He's a weirdo but he also takes things seriously and not much different like Ann did for Shiho, he tolerates and enables the situation. He admits he was turning a blind eye due to a sense of gratitude and unearned respect for Madarame due to the Sayuri.
      Shit is pretty well done, the only crap thing about the arc is the bit of Madarame letting Yusuke die, it was unnecessary as frick, I like the bit that adopting Yusuke being the reason that Madarame got the idea of stealing from young talent, shit is warped as frick.

      >Kaneshiro
      This arc fricking sucks, it wrecks the pacing, there isn't any personal connection between Makoto/Kaneshiro unlike every fricking other Palace of the game Futaba, Haru/Okumura, Makoto/Sae, Joker/Akechi/Shido and Morgana/Mementos.
      It's pure filler only salvaged because the Bank has one banger of a theme and is a decent enough dungeon (they gave up on the Vault section though). Fricking Makoto ruined a perfect 2/2 streak going.

                During the Kaneshiro arc, Makoto ask how where you doing Palaces before. Ryuji asks about "winging it" and no one denies this.
                While that is somewhat true during Kamoshida's, it is enterely false on Madarame's they actually plan the heist but Madarame was just one step ahead with the fake painting.

                This is a constant thing that the writers do to the other characters so that they can wank Makoto. They downgrade others to prop them up, at least when they wank Futaba she brings unique skills to the team.

          Mishima is pulling more work for the PT than most of the team outside of battle:
          >Morgana
          Key player in Kamoshida's & Madarame's, useless after Makoto joins.
          >Ryuji
          Key player in Kamoshida's & Madarame's, useless until Shido's.
          >Ann
          Key player in Kamoshida's & Madarame's, 100% useless after that.
          >Yusuke
          Key player during Madarame's. Calling card maker & optional Skill Card duty afterwards.
          >Makoto
          Main voiceover during Palaces (was Morgana's role before), Key Player during Sae's.
          >Futaba
          Key player in Futaba's and Shido's. Gathers info for the PTs.
          >Haru
          Key player in Okumura's and Shido's (Just because I believe is implied that she bankrolled the PT video calling card).

          The only PT that actually do shit outside of combat are Yusuke and Futaba. Mishima does more for the PT than the official members.

          For the Japanese it doesn't matter. Students shouldn't be there, doesn't matter if they were extorted, kidnapped, etc. It's a bad image.

          Joker gets expelled instantly and straight to juvie.
          Ryuji gets expelled.
          Ann gets an even worse public image and a suspension at least.
          Yusuke gets a suspension.
          Makoto gets whatever recommendation she was getting revoked, suspended and puts Sae on a hard position at work, most likely disowned by her sister too.

      I think that Yusuke, Futaba, Ryuji and obviously Makoto are mostly fine even if you don't see their SL you get to see them grow after their Palaces during the story.
      Morgana gets it last minute and is mandatory, Ann and Haru are the ones that got shafted hard.

      Ryuji: Gets to run once more to save the people he cares about as he has a place to belong again (moment ruined a little later).
      Yusuke: Gifts the Cognition Sayuri to Sojiro and goes back to the dorms to live with people and expose himself to the world.
      Makoto: Fixes her relationship with Sae and admits that she wants to follow her father's footsteps wether that won't guarantee her success in life.
      Futaba: Fixes her relationship with Sojiro and forms connections with others, slowly and surely takes care of her NEET issues with the PT.

              Can be solved by making it like "hey, we didn't talk about this right after it happened. But what did you think about it?" Would be a little awkward but should still work. Ideally if the writers did their work correctly I will want to prioritize my team mates anyway.
