Your favorite act name? *possible spoilers*

Post by silverstar67 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 8:42 pm

So I've just finished all of the story paths, and I was very impressed with the act titles. Each of them, despite usually being one word, carried a weight to them. All of them gave depth and insight to the upcoming events, without spoiling any surprises. That, coupled with the images, created a beautiful transition between periods of time. My personal favorites being Emi's (not just because I like her best). My question is, which act name is your favorite? Scene names are also acceptable.

Emi : Form, Perspective, Motion
Hanuko : Hide and seek, Castling, Scars
Lilly : Past, Present, Future
Rin : Disconnect, Distance, Dreams
Shizune : Learning to read, Slight of hand, To my other self

Probably Dream. Something about the combination of the name, the image, and that depressing act title card tune gets me really emotional.

To My Other Self. Sounds like it could fit any or all of the girls rather than the one.

<Ascension>: "I laughed, cried, vomited in my mouth a little, and even had time for marshmallows afterwards. Well played, Xanatos. Well played."
<KeiichiO>: "That's a beautiful response to chocolate."

Well for me Rin's act images were symbolic of her mental descent, from losing her arms, to Hisao, and finally losing herself.

Didn't Rin basically never have arms? And she only lost Hisao in the not-good ends.

I'm not sure if Rin never had arms. Was that specified? Either way, arms were something that were "lost" to her specifically (not that it seemed to bother her much). I thought that the title distance represented her seclusion from the world, and more importantly, Hisao.

IIRC it was stated she was born without them.

I didn't play KS for half of a year so I totally forgot the arc's name. But I like one with running Emi (Arc 4).

She had defective one when she is born so doctor cut it off and leave it as beautiful slump. I guess.

Unofficially Demanding. Temporary even-more malfunctioned in English Grammar.

Lilly's arc

Past
Present
Future
When the war, has been won
And our march home begins
What awaits has not yet been revealed
What was won? what was lost?
Will our deeds be remembered?
Are they written on stone or in sand?

My favorite scene is probably when the trio gets totally wasted in Lilly's route. Can't remember the name though. :lol:

You should make this a poll. I would say dream, but I like the art on distance. :)

To My Other Self. :D
(though, I'm replaying Persona4 right now - I'm biased)
The strength of heart to face oneself has been made manifest. The persona Carighan has appeared.
