What is your impression of the new characters so far? The typical SMT trio, guy protagonist - guy who is best friend of the protagonist - girl friend of the guys. Hope the guy and the girl are not similar to Junpei and Yukari...
Oh, they are - fortunately - nothing like Yukari and Junpei. These guys are tolerable.
Though I wouldn't say Ryuji is the best friend... more the first friend. I get what you mean, but it doesn't feel that way.
Ryuji is the loud, energetic type who is rather bookdumb... but he has his good sides. Anne (still tempted to call her Collet or Nana - because of her voice actress) is pretty tolerable. She's not making a huge impression on me right now, but that might be because her impression was bigger, since things were more personal for her with the first dungeon's boss.
I know about the rest of the characters already, so...
Makoto is great. I just got her Persona unlocked and I'm looking forward to having her be in my party more. And I really, really, REALLY want Futaba in my party! I want to unlock her already, because everything from her design to what her plot point/personality is like, it appeals to me. Heck, I'm gonna try to romance her.
I notice that I am much more open with actually changing my party members in P5.
In P3, my party usually changed to Protagonist, Mitsuru, Akihito and either Yukari for healing or someone-who-is-not-Junpei as soon as it was available.
In P4, I quickly decided to not switch my members beyond the first few members; generally never went beyond Yusuke, Chie and Yukiko.
But here, I change my party members when I feel like it or try them out.
Though I am not sure if I wanna get rid of Anne or Morgana - Anne is an amazing magic user in the long run, but her defense sucks. On the other hand, Morgana has the same problem, but is much more healing focused and fast. Though the healing can easily be done by Joker. (Now that I think about it, my party will likely end up Joker and three ladies)
