Taking a look at the LGBT representation in Persona 5 (Light Spoilers) | NeoGAF
You can choose to hang with Ryuji on both the summer field trip and during the culture festival. During the latter you can even confess your love for him , though he doesn't seem to reciprocate such feelings. Bane even prayed for Dick when he became Batman. Because japan is nowhere near as progressive as the west as far as lgbt acceptance. And our games aren't very progressive as it is. Common sense is just wisdom with its sleeves rolled up. If you're interested in a Persona game where you can pursue a gay relationship, play P2 Innocent Sin.
I'm not sure why it's the only one. Because it would draw attention to the fact that Yusuke is more charming and romantic than any of the women. This caused all of the playtest groups to develop uncomfortable feelings, which led to them taking out the option in his rank 9 confidant.
Just look at the subtext: You'd date Ryuji over Yusuke?
Jokes aside, Japan is an Asian country. Now, all this is coming from my perspective, as a heterosexual male who played the game as such. Would I see this differently were the protagonist a girl and the doctor, journalist and teacher all grown men? Or if the player had the option to pursue a gay relationship?
So I asked Persona 5 fansite Kotaku. She had. The answer was a little bit of both. I know I am actually playing a teenage boy having an inappropriate relationship with an adult, but it also feels like I am playing a version of myself that actually did ask out that cute, punk-y senior girl that I longed for as a freshman in high school.

The game itself perhaps inadvertently draws attention to this early on with the scandals involving Kamoshida, Ann and Shiho. You, the player, are probably an adult. Depending on how you think of it, the power dynamic can shift completely. You can max the rank whether as lovers or friends, and get the same rewards and items for doing so. Persona 5 is a really long game. It tackles so many real-world issues—high school, love, politics, art, workplace exploitation, sex, social anxiety—that it was bound to get some more right than others.
Much of Persona 5 is nestled in a grey area, inviting you to talk it over with other people playing the game. So here we are, staring at a social-sexual Rorschach test, where the ink blots take the form of a punk doctor in fashionably distressed tights He has written a book on cosplay , designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.
Luke Plunkett. Filed to: Share This Story. The game does a fantastic job of selling that this cast loves each other like a family, and most of the time I felt like a part of that family, not like I was on the outside looking in. But every now and then, the topic of romance came up, bringing out the same assumptions about my version of Joker, the protagonist, that prompted my coming out: My cranky caregiver Shojiro asked me several times if I had a girlfriend, and made snarky comments when I had a female party member at the house.
Despite my assuring him nothing was going on, he still made his jokes. Haru, one of the Phantom Thieves, asked me if I had ever been in love; when I told her I had, she said she was jealous of not only me, but the woman she assumed was the subject of my affection. Photojournalist Ichiko Ohya and fellow Phantom Thief Makoto Nijima both forced me to pretend to be their boyfriend in order to progress our friendship, without even asking my permission or if I was comfortable and willing to do that.
Ryuji Sakamoto. It wants me out by any means necessary.
