Kou is awesome and should've been in party since he had a way more interesting story than most characters, I wish he'd had replaced Yosuke as your partner, still have yosuke but have kou as first in your party!
No! not my Yukiko! *ahem* actually maybe make him a powrhouse like kanji except have his magic just as powerful as his physical attacks, but maybe also a buffer so we can take out Izanami fast...god that was a hard battle though, Izanami: only face her at Lvl 99.
Lol i got bored on my 3rd playthrough, mostly because it gets repetitive, but anyway if you like persona then check out my novel for it, its in my gallery so take a look I really appreciate all opinions ^ ^
