On P3P

I've been playing "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable" the last couple weeks. I went the emulator route on my S5 as I no longer have access to a PSP and cannot afford a Vita right now (I have purchased the game from the PlayStation Store however). I've decided to play as the female Protagonist despite the game suggesting the original Protagonist for a first time player. I am really loving her. I had bought P4 for PS3 when it was on sale for $2.50, but I find too much exposure at a time with it gets me a bit upset due to people I used to socialise with being fans of it and getting me to buy the original PS2 version. It took over a day to download and while asleep I dreamt of Theodore so decided to look into an Android PSP emulator. I named the Protagonist Arisato Minako, because it's the most common head!canon name. My P4 Protagonist was named Seta Souji.

I feel bad because I'm not really liking the S.E.E.S. members so far. Like they've basically just lied to me & used me like an experiment. The game calls them my friends but I'm all like "fuck off". Outside of Social Link conversations I've mostly been giving indifferent or 'bugger-off' responses. Junpei at least despite hitting on me actually seems more concerned instead of what I can do. I like a lot of the non-S.E.E.S. characters though! Like the Old Couple. I am shipping Theodore/female Protagonist hard, which sucks because there are only 4 fanfics of it on AO3, and it ends not so well in-game. Most of what I've found outside of AO3 is Akihiko/Minako with Theodore on the side as a previous fling. Also a more promising 2011 one I found suddenly became Theodore/Fuuka, killed Theodore off, and was never finished after 9 chapters. I have a bad time with picking pairings :/ I am also preferring the female Protagonist over the original P3 Protagonist making the original seem 'off' to me now...

Anyway so far I prefer P4's teammate characters & plot. But P3P feels less grind-y, and I'm enjoying playing Minako. Death (the almost impossible enemy that shows-up if you stay in a Tartarus Floor too long) can fuck right off though. And I still worry about making wrong choices and fucking things up later :/ I'm not very far though, only May 3RD so I may like future S.E.E.S. members more. I wish I could get a firm answer about if I ever unlock the Persona Compendium though!

EDIT---

I never thought I'd watch this game opening on this television again. #P4

Despite no-one answering my question on if I would ever unlock the Persona Compendium or not, I actually did unlock it after the 1ST Full Moon event.

I couldn't resist and fused my favourite Persona after.

And since I used Omoikane & Ara Mitama, I managed to get it so he inherited Zio & Dia. Sadly Archangel doesn't automatically learn Media in P3P so I'll gave to settle for Dia or use a skill card later. I have an extra Maragi skill card I plan to use on him when I need him (I don't have a Justice Social Link right now). So he'll know 4 elements. I also have a Garu card. Archangel can't learn Dark spells though.
