This week’s episode starts off with everyone arriving at Heaven, Nanako’s dungeon. Namatame reveals that he has been trying to “save” people, and draws Shadows to attack. He takes control of Yu and forces him to attack everyone else, but Yu is able to break the control mechanism and save Nanako. Namatame then controls everyone else, but Yu is able to free them all and defeat finish him off.
Namatame is arrested and Nanako is hospitalized afterwards, but she soon recovers. Strangely, though, there’s a heavy fog in Inaba following the incident, similar to the fog in the TV World. Nonetheless, things seem to be doing okay, but then Nanako’s condition suddenly worsens and she dies.
NANAKO!!!!!! Yeah…I actually have no idea what’s up with that. All I can do is wait for next week for some sort of explanation. The battle at the start of the episode plays into that scene from earlier where everyone looked at Yu with a sort of fear when he summoned his many Persona. Their fear is kinda justified when he’s turned against them. Stupid controlling business…made that battle more annoying than it should have been. Still, the battle was cool as usual.
With that little conversation with Naoto, I guess Yu has revisited every main character. I would have hoped for a bit more, but I understand with the pacing. The ending is becoming a bit murky for me. I’m not sure how faithful they’re trying to make it to the game. I really don’t want them to skip the true ending. Especially since something happened in this episode that is linked to it (I won’t give it away because spoilers are lame).
