Axe of the Blood God: The Persona 5 Spoilercast

Axe of the Blood God: The Persona 5 Spoilercast

All we want to do is date boys.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, we finally carry out our promise / threat of a Persona 5 Spoilercast, which we've been talking about doing for at least three years now [download link here].

Because I haven't finished Persona 5, I opted to sit this one out. Instead, Nadia, Caty, Hirun, and Eric star in this episode, which is timed to coincide with the impending release of Persona 5 Royal. They talk about the social links; lament the inability to date the boys; reflect on the ending, and compare it to the other games in the series (specifically Persona 3 and 4). Hirun and Nadia also share their opinions of Persona 5 Royal in a (non-spoilery) fashion.

Apologies for this episode being slightly later than most. We had a few technical difficulties, so I wasn't able to actually edit the episode until Monday. It's a good one though, so hopefully it was worth the wait!

Show Description

With Persona 5 Royal just a week away, Nadia, Eric, Hirun, and Caty get together for a spoiler-filled and in-depth conversation about the original game. They discuss Persona 5's history; social links; amazing soundtrack, and whether or not the ending ultimately works. Also, Nadia and Hirun chime in with a bit of (not as spoiler-filled) chatter about Persona 5 Royal. Does Persona 5 still hold up after three years? Listen and decide for yourself!
