I wasn’t as impressed by this fight as the last one but it did prove one thing and that is by adding a blue outer glow and a silhouette to any persona it instantly makes them cool.
The personas that Yu used this episode were some of the lamest ones from the game but somehow the anime made them look badass. His summoning of Beelzebub was impressive and may have unintentionally destroyed the entire secret base. With his level of power already this high the next battles are going to be a real treat.
Speaking of badass old Yu was great. It’s funny how Rise was still in love with him, must have been the beard he was sporting. The relaxing conversation between the old characters with the tradition Japanese music was very amusing and for once Teddie proved useful for something more then a laugh. Even though Yu did do the most battling I feel Kanji really stole the spotlight. He stood up for Naoto and was the one to save her in the end. That and he had another conversation with Yu in the hospital which went further into his social link.
Things are going to get serious next episode and I am hoping for some of Dojima and Nanako’s social links. We might even see a bit more of Margaret as she seems to have a crush on Yu now too.
