Persona 4 Episode 7

We're...uhh, treated? another rendition of Kanji's Midnight Channel debut. So...uhh...after we cleanse our memories of that experience, everyone goes into the TV to find Kanji. Kuma (Teddy? Let's just go with Kuma) is unable to pick up Kanji's scent, so everyone goes to speak to his mother to try to find something with his scent.

Because of this excursion, they all find out that Kanji's actually quite the softy (he still beats the crap out of things in the game). They also have a conversation with Naoto, who surmises that Kanji is suppressing something (of course he is). Everyone goes back to the TV World, where Kuma is able to locate Kanji in...the sauna dungeon!

While everyone is making their way through the dungeon, Kanji is being tormented by his Shadow. Everyone shows up to save him, but as usual, they aren't able to stop Kanji from rejecting his Shadow, who takes his true form. This episode's battle becomes a bit more complicated, as Kanji's Shadow also has minions.

Kanji's Shadow tries to take out Kanji, but Yu takes the hit. Yu's about to get hit by the Final Smash, but Igor reveals...Secret Technique: FUSION!!! Yu fuses two of his Persona together and makes who I believe is Yamata no Orochi. Yu then convinces Kanji to accept his Shadow, which lets him finish it off, revealing the Persona form.

Yeah...we all secretly enjoyed the random fan service scene when the girls fell into the sauna water...just admit it. Other differences in this episode: Kanji actually beats the Shadow himself, rather than Yu or anyone else (told you he was epic in battle). I think they did a great job of integrating fusion as well, giving Yu a pretty epic animation for it. Only three more Persona to go. Next up is Rise (that one's gonna be a me). But first, it looks like next week, we're gonna be given the summer vacation episode. Also, we're given a brief glimpse at the culprit in the rain.

    Awesome episode. It was really hilarious. Out of all the show so far, I personally like this episode and the previous one. I still remember the part they run away from Kanji and there was this delivery girl there giving them the food lol!

    Rise-chan, my waifu!

    I loved this episode, even if it felt a bit rushed. They're definitely not taking themselves too seriously, which is great.

    I am a bit sad that many people are saying that this episode was funny. Most people seem to be ignoring the fact the this episode could be very offensive to gay people, and the boys' behavior is frequently excused as "normal teenage" behavior when they were really overreacting. The manga version did not have them whine about going home, the manga version captured the original game's seriousness by showing a young Kanji being bullied for sewing. The shadow in the manga was also very angry and serious at the end, while the anime one is stupidly happy the entire time.

    too much could have been spent in battle scenes or rounding up kanji's character like yukiko's episode. But i liked the part kanji beating up his own shadow :) Up Next Mystery Food X

    The next episode will be even more unfortunate, as in the preview: the main character is acting as homophobic as Yosuke towards Kanji (I thought you accepted me/Not at night). This situation will be played for laughs, and I fear that Kanji will be a chew toy. That is to say, he’ll be kicked out of his tent, kicked in the groin by Chie, and then he’ll be pushed into the river for nosebleeding at the girls. He will be abused! If the creators thought viewers are supposed to relate to a homophobe, then that will be pretty sad.
