Morgana

Early Final
I arrive at Club Velvet...

Morgana is here...


[Morgana]

A ball, huh?

And dancing is the key to success? Sounds like the perfect mission for me!


You can dance?

Why are you so confident?


[Morgana]

Hmph, of course I can.

You'll see soon enough!


[Morgana]

Heh, you'll find out soon enough!


[Morgana]

My amazing dance moves are gonna light this place up!


[Morgana]

Lady Ann will be watching me, too...


So that's why you're excited.

Don't forget your mission.


[Morgana]

...Ahem!

Come on, I was obviously joking.


......


[Morgana]

Umm...

What I meant to say was, uh... I wanna show everyone my moves, not just Lady Ann!


......


[Morgana]

...What? It's like you're looking straight through me...


......


Tell me the truth.

I thought we were friends.


[Morgana]

O-OK...


[Morgana]

W-We are.


[Morgana]

The truth is, I want to show Lady Ann how cool I can be.

So, um...


[Morgana]

When it's my time to shine, please be my wingman!


Morgana is counting on me...


......


All right.

If you insist.


[Morgana]

Wait, really!?


[Morgana]

Wait, you mean it!?


[Morgana]

Hehehe! With any luck...

This ball will be a wedding reception by the end of the night!


[Morgana]

Well now that that's decided, let's get practicing! Come on, Joker!


Morgana's really pumped up about this. I guess I can practice for a bit...

I arrive at Club Velvet...

It looks like Morgana's already here.


[Morgana]

A ball, huh?

And dancing is the key to success? Sounds like the perfect mission for me!


You can dance?

Why are you so confident?


[Morgana]

Hmph, of course I can.

[Morgana]

Wh-What? It's like you're looking straight through me...


......

[Morgana]

O-OK...

Morgana's really pumped up about this. I guess I can practice for a bit...

Ann

Early Final
I arrive at Club Velvet...

Ann is doing something by herself...


[Ann]

Like this? Or maybe this...?


You sure are worked up.

Practicing by yourself?


[Ann]

Yeah, I mean, isn’t it awesome that we can dance just the way we imagine it?

Now I could do any dance, like the ones they do in those cool Western music videos, or a cute idol dance!

I can’t believe I can imagine something in my head and it’ll become real. It’s like a dream... wait, this is a dream.


[Ann]

...Hm?

Ooh... If I think about eating sweets, maybe they'll magically appear in my mouth...


I don’t think so.

Give it a try.

You’re a genius...


[Ann]

Well, we won't know until we try!

Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce...

......


[Ann]

You don’t have to tell me!

Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce...


[Ann]

I know, right?

Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce...


[Ann]

I don't taste anything...

It didn't work... *sigh* Guess it's not that easy, huh?


......


[Ann]

What's with the awkward silence!?

I can't help it, OK!? It's sooo hard to resist the temptation!

Sweets taste amazing, and they come out with new ones all the time. They even look cute!

It's all their fault. Without a doubt.


......


[Ann]

I know I should try a little harder to resist... But once they're right in front of me, I'm helpless.

I mean... Just a minute ago, I was going to town on everything I had in my room...


That’s no good.

That’s fine, you’re in a dream.


[Ann]

It's OK. I've got a plan.


[Ann]

...Mhm! I'm not even half full after all that.

Besides, I’ve got a plan ready for this.


[Ann]

I'll just... dance it all off!

Did you know dancing burns a ton of calories? It's a workout for your entire body.

And since this is a dream, I can probably pull off all kinds of rigorous moves!


Give it your all.

Saying that is one thing...


[Ann]

Don't worry, I'm not gonna sit back.

But if we can do it together, I think I'll be even more motivated...


I don’t mind Don’t depend on me.


[Ann]

Thanks! I'm counting on you to give me some advice.


[Ann]

I just want you with me so I can try even harder. Come on, I'm serious about this.


[Ann]

Pro models train their bodies right, and when they pose, the lines of their toned muscles show!

I’ve always admired those, and instead of just admiring it, I need to be like that, too!

That’s why I’ve gotta make the best of this chance, resist my urges, and exercise!


Ann seems motivated...


[Ann]

First, I wanna burn all those calories I just ate.


[Ann]

Let's see... I ate two bars of chocolate and a box of cookies.

I also had a bag of fruit gummies, and three skewers of sweet rice dumplings! ...I saved half a donut.


......!?


[Ann]

Sounds like a lot, but it's really not, right? How much dancing do I need to do?


[Ann]

Oh, I opened a bag of potato chips, too.

But it’s not sweet so it doesn’t count?


......

I practiced with Ann, then returned to my room...

I've come to Club Velvet...

What is Ann doing...?


[Ann]

Like this? Or maybe this...?


You seem hard at work.

Practicing by yourself?


[Ann]

Yeah! Isn't it awesome how we can dance just by imagining it?

Now I can do all kinds of moves... From cool music video stuff to cute idol routines!

I just focus on something, and it becomes reality. It's like a dream... Wait, this IS a dream.


[Ann]

...Hm?

Ooh... If I think about eating sweets, maybe they'll magically appear in my mouth...


I doubt it.

Give it a try.

You're a genius...


[Ann] Well, we won't know until we try! Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce... ......


[Ann]

I'm way ahead of ya!

Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce...

......


[Ann]

I know, right? I'm gonna give it a try!

Like, if I wanted a crepe stuffed with fresh cream and tons of chocolate sauce...

......


[Ann]

I don't taste anything...

[Ann]

[Ann]

I just want you with me so I can try even harder. Come on, I'm serious about this.


[Ann]

Fashion models work out a lot, so when they pose, their toned muscles really pop!

I've always admired them. But it's time for me to stop admiring and start getting on their level!

That's why I've gotta make the most of this opportunity, resist my temptations, and exercise!


Ann seems motivated...


[Ann]

First, I wanna burn all those calories I just ate.


[Ann]

Let's see... I ate two bars of chocolate and a box of cookies.

......!?


[Ann]

Sounds like a lot, but it's really not, right? How much dancing do I need to do?


[Ann]

Oh, I killed a bag of potato chips, too.

...But those aren't sweet, so they don't count!


......

I practiced with Ann, then returned to my room...

Yusuke

Early Final
I arrive at Club Velvet...

Yusuke is here...


[Yusuke]

Oh, it's you...

Sorry, it seems I was lost in thought.


[Yusuke]

I never thought it would come to pass that I should become a dancer...


Uneasy?

Not confident?


[Yusuke]

No, quite the contrary.


[Yusuke]

After all, dance is a form of art. It expresses beauty through movement and form.

I've heard of great painters choosing dance as a subject of their work, too...

Then my involvement with dance was some kind of natural-- No, it was the hand of fate!


[Yusuke]

...Hm!


[Yusuke]

...I can feel it. It's beginning to surge through me... this urge, the inspiration to dance...

Such euphoria, just like when I first held a brush... Overwhelming excitement... Overwhelming joy!


Looking forward to it.

Calm down.

You're weird.


[Yusuke]

Thanks. I won't disappoint you.


[Yusuke]

*chuckle* Once you've experienced this feeling, I'm sure you'll respond the same way.


[Yusuke]

Who are you calling a creep!?

...That aside.


[Yusuke]

You help me out so much on a regular basis.

As this situation concerns a form of art, it's now my opportunity to be most useful.


I can feel Yusuke's motivation...


[Yusuke]

But I have just one concern...


......?


[Yusuke]

The issue of stamina.

Hunger is inevitable from the physical exertion of dancing. Alas, my wallet is on a diet.

I want to dance! But I doubt I can overcome starvation... Oh, whatever shall I do!?


You don't get hungry in the dream.

Food is free in the dream.


[Yusuke]

That is true. I did not realize...

A place where I do not have to think about hunger and can keep creating... Amazing, it is too amazing!


[Yusuke]

But, to produce something you must pay something of equal value, that is the general way of things.

Even though within a dream, is it good to create something without losing anything...


Nevermind that and dance.

Just dance.

No use thinking about it.


[Yusuke]

...I see. I had not considered that.


[Yusuke]

Then I will prepare myself to put even my struggles into my dance.

I will overcome this trial, and go even further above.

As a person... And as an artist!


[Yusuke]

...With that said, I'll have you join me in my practice session.

You wouldn't decline, would you?


I watched Yusuke dance for a while before heading back to my room...

I arrive at Club Velvet...

It looks like Yusuke's already here...


[Yusuke]

Oh, it's you...

Sorry, it seems I was lost in thought.


[Yusuke]

I never thought it would come to pass that I should become a dancer...


You worried?

Don't feel confident?


[Yusuke]

No, quite the contrary.


[Yusuke]

After all, dance is a form of art. It expresses beauty through movement and form.

I've heard of great painters choosing dance as a subject of their work, too...

Then my involvement with dance was some kind of natural-- No, it was the hand of fate!


[Yusuke]

...Hm!


[Yusuke]

...I can feel it. It's beginning to surge through me... this urge, the inspiration to dance...

Such euphoria, just like when I first held a brush... Overwhelming excitement... Overwhelming joy!


I'm rooting for you.

Calm down.

You're a creep.


[Yusuke]

Thanks. I won't disappoint you.


[Yusuke]

  • chuckle* Once you've experienced this feeling, I'm sure you'll respond the same way.


[Yusuke]

Who are you calling a creep!?

...That aside.


[Yusuke]

You help me out so much on a regular basis.

As this situation concerns a form of art, it's now my opportunity to be most useful.


I can feel Yusuke's motivation...


[Yusuke]

But I have just one concern...


……?


[Yusuke]

The issue of stamina.

Hunger is inevitable from the physical exertion of dancing. Alas, my wallet is on a diet.

I want to dance! But I doubt I can overcome starvation... Oh, whatever shall I do!?


There's no hunger in dreams.

The food's free in dreams.


[Yusuke]

You're absolutely right. I hadn't realized that...

Here I can focus on my creative work, free of hunger... Marvelous, this is truly marvelous!


[Yusuke]

However... The creation of art typically comes at a price.

This may be a dream, but is it even right to indulge in such creation scot-free?


Who cares, dance.

Just dance.

No use thinking about it.


[Yusuke]

...I see. I had not considered that.


[Yusuke]

In that case, I'll incorporate this conflict into my dance as well.

By conquering this trial, I shall reach a new pinnacle...

As an individual--and as an artist!


[Yusuke]

...With that said, I'll have you join me in my practice session.

You wouldn't decline, would you?


I watched Yusuke dance for a while before heading back to my room...

Makoto

Early Final
I arrive at Club Velvet...

Makoto is here, with a troubled look on her face...


[Makoto]

Oh, I was just thinking about my sister.

How I always seek her approval... How I don't want to be left in her shadow... Things like that.

So I can't help but sympathize with the twins' sibling rivalry. I feel that way a lot myself.


That's unexpected.

What a child.


[Makoto]

Really? I may not look it, but I can be pretty competitive.

But... I'm usually the only one fighting. I think that makes me feel even worse.


[Makoto]

Please... I get enough of that from my sister. I know it's childish.

Why do I get so competitive...? I guess I just want to feel like we're on equal footing.


[Makoto]

Anyway, as I was saying!

I feel for those two, so I've been thinking I should try a little harder to help them out.


How dependable.

Think you can dance?


[Makoto]

I-It's only an idea! It's not that I have any confidence in my dancing...


[Makoto]

I don't have a lot of experience with it, so... honestly, I'm not too confident.


[Makoto]

But... It's all about understanding the key points. If I practice with that in mind, I should be OK.

First, I need to take a deep breath and visualize the space around me. Next, focus on the music...


Makoto seems deeply focused...


[Makoto]

Align my rhythm with the beat... Go with the flow... And at the right moment, make my move!


That's Aikido.

Punishment through fists!


[Makoto]

...Is that bad?

I just thought I would apply some of those fast, sharp aikido forms to my dancing.


[Makoto]

...I guess that was a bit much, huh?

I just thought I would apply some of those fast, sharp aikido forms to my dancing.


[Makoto]

It may be unorthodox, but aikido has taught me a lot. I'm starting to feel a bit better about dancing.

I need to be careful when someone's next to me, though. I might hit them by accident.


[Makoto]

Anyway, let's get down to business and begin practicing. Would you join me?


I practiced with Makoto, then returned to my room...

I arrive at Club Velvet...

Makoto is here, with a troubled look on her face...


[Makoto]

Oh, I was just thinking about my sister.

How I always seek her approval... How I don't want to be left in her shadow... Things like that.

[Makoto]

Anyway, as I was saying!

I feel for those two, so I've been thinking I should try a little harder to help them out.


How dependable.

So you'll dance?


[Makoto]

I-It's only an idea! It's not that I have any confidence in my dancing...


[Makoto]

I don't have a lot of experience with it, so... honestly, I'm not too confident.


[Makoto]

Makoto seems deeply focused...


[Makoto]

Align my rhythm with the beat... Go with the flow... And at the right moment, make my move!


That's aikido.

Fists of rage!


[Makoto]

...Is that bad?

I just thought I would apply some of those fast, sharp aikido forms to my dancing.


[Makoto]

...I guess that was a bit much, huh?

I just thought I would apply some of those fast, sharp aikido forms to my dancing.

[Makoto]

Anyway, let's get down to business and begin practicing. Would you join me?


I practiced with Makoto, then returned to my room...

Haru

Early Final
I arrive at Club Velvet...

It looks like Haru's already here.


[Haru]

My apologies for asking you here like this. There's, um... something I'd like to discuss with you.


[Haru]

Honestly... I'm at a loss right now.

I haven't told the others this yet, but I already have some dance experience. Ballet, specifically.

The problem is, whenever I imagine myself dancing, ballet is the only thing that comes to mind.

Isn't that a bit too old-fashioned, though? I worry this isn't the right place for it.


That's not true.

You're so ladylike.


[Haru]

Hm, but...


[Haru]

Oh, come now... It's been ages since I stopped practicing.


[Haru]

To be honest, learning ballet was never my idea to begin with. I don't have the fondest memories of it, either.

I'm concerned I'll just bring everyone down... What should I do?


Believe in yourself.

Don't overthink this.

Use your experience.


[Haru]

...Right. It all comes down to how I approach it.

I suppose I do have a wealth of experience. It would be silly not to take advantage of that.

Plus, ballet is the basis for all sorts of new styles. Maybe I could even teach the others a thing or two...


[Haru]

Wait, that's it!

I may have been alone during my lessons, but everyone's here with me now! This might actually be fun!


That depends on you.

Let's enjoy ourselves.


[Haru]

Right! If I'm going to dance, I should make it count!


[Haru]

*giggle* This is exciting!


[Haru]

You know, it isn't often that ballet skills prove useful in everyday life.

Since we have the opportunity, I'd like to show everyone that I can be a dependable senpai too.


[Haru]

I'll give it my all!


Haru seems confident...


[Haru]

Well, I suppose I should start reviewing my old routines.

Would you care to join me? I'd be glad to teach you the basics.


Sounds good to me.

Lay it on me.


[Haru]

Great, I can't wait to get started!

We should do some stretches before we begin, though.

Why don't we start with a split? Here, push your legs open 180 degrees, like this...


i don't know about this...


[Haru]

Hm? Is something wrong? In this dream, you should be able to move any way you imagine, right?

Try to get your chest all the way down to the floor. See? Don't worry, you'll be fine!


That was... painful.

I should head back to my room now that practice is over...

I arrive at Club Velvet...

It looks like Haru's already here.


[Haru]

My apologies for asking you here like this. There's, um... something I'd like to discuss with you.

[Haru]

Hm, but...


[Haru]

Oh, come now... It's been ages since I stopped practicing.


[Haru]

I don't have fond memories of it, to be honest... After a while, I was only doing it out of obligation.

So... I'm concerned I'll just bring everyone down. What should I do?


Believe in yourself.

Don't overthink this.

Use your experience.


[Haru]

...Right. It all comes down to how I approach it.

Caroline and Justine

Early Final
[Futaba]

...Wh-Wh-Where are we?! It's like, super flashy!


[Ann]

I woke up and it was pitch black... So I followed the light, and ended up... here.

Did I... die in my sleep? No way.


[Yusuke]

This scenery is rather magnificent for Hades. I appreciate the deep blue atmosphere.


[Makoto]

But look at Mona... Are we in the Metaverse again?


......

......?


[Morgana]

Hey, you're awake.


Morgana?

That form...


[Ryuji]

Right!? When I opened my eyes, he was all up in my face!

Talk about a rude awakening.


[Morgana]

What was that?! Do you want me to knock you back out, then?


[Ryuji]

Oh yeah!? Come at me, cat!


[Ann]

Cut it out, you two!


[Yusuke]

We're all here now. What on earth has happened?


[Haru]

I was fast asleep in my room, but when I woke up... I was here.


[Futaba]

Me too! I passed out playing games online, and then poof!


Calm down.

Let's go back to sleep.


[Makoto]

Right. Let's assess the situation first.


[Ann]

Umm... Could you freak out a little more about this?


[Futaba]

I ran a search on our location, but nothing came up. Doesn't seem dangerous, though.


[Morgana]

Relax, everyone. This room is probably--


[Caroline]

There you are, Inmate!


[Justine]

You appear clueless, as usual.



In reality, you are all asleep. This experience is merely a dream.


[Yusuke]

...A dream?


[Ann]

What!? Where are those voices coming from?


[Justine]

Typically, only those who have signed a contract can enter this place...


[Caroline]

But just this once, we brought your friends along! You'd better appreciate it, Inmate!


[Ryuji]

Hey, show your damn faces!


[Ryuji]

Wha--!?


[Haru]

Huh!?


[Ann]

Hey!


[Yusuke]

Ugh...!


[Morgana]

Ngh...


[Makoto]

Ah!


[Caroline]

...What a noisy bunch. Your accomplices are lacking in discipline, Inmate!


[Futaba]

Whoa! Someone's there!


[Justine]

It is rather hard to believe you all have been through such profound strife.


[Haru]

They suddenly appeared... who are you?


[Ryuji]

And whaddaya want with us?


[Morgana]

Wait, Ryuji! Those two are--


[Makoto]

Inmate, do they mean you? Do you know them?


They helped me.

They gave me hell.

They're split again?


[Caroline]

*chuckle* That's right. You were a real handful, Inmate.


[Caroline]

Hmph. How rude. After all we did for you...


[Caroline]

Hmph. It's more convenient this way.


[Justine]

We have not forgotten our separated bodies.

It is no trouble to revert whenever we wish.


[Ann]

Oh, right!

Are these those twins you were talking about? Oh my god, they're adorable!


[Caroline]

Cute...!? Ugh, how rude!


[Haru]

Nice... to meet you. Is that better? *giggle* They really do look identical!


[Justine]

...We're getting off-track. Caroline, proceed with the introduction.


[Caroline]

A-All right, listen up! The reason we've brought you all here...

...Is to nurture a certain skill that lies dormant within each of you.


[Justine]

You are to train that skill and put it on display for us here.


[Morgana]

...What skill?


[Caroline]

*chuckle* Perhaps this room may offer a clue.


[Justine]

The answer is...


[Caroline]

Dancing!


[Justine] Dancing.


[Ryuji]

Huh?


[Ann]

Huh...?


[Morgana]

......


[Yusuke]

What!?


[Futaba]

D-D-D-Dancing?


[Makoto]

What do you mean...?


[Caroline]

Listen up, Inmate!

All of you must practice your dance moves and perform on stage here at Club Velvet!


[Justine]

To put it plainly, this is a ball. Dance the long, long night away.


[Caroline]

You'll have a ball! Such a ball that the audience bursts into flames and writhes in agony!


I don't get it.

This is sudden...


[Ryuji]

Yeah, why do we gotta dance?


[Justine]

This is simply a part of your rehabilitation. Polish your skills and put them on display.


[Morgana]

Wait. Wasn't his rehabilitation already finished?


[Caroline]

Quit whining! Just shut up and dance! You can do that, can't you!?


[Futaba]

Oh man, it's awesome when she gets mad! Totally tsundere.


[Yusuke]

It is no use arguing, but I must warn you I am quite the amateur.


[Ryuji]

What're you getting excited for, pervert!?


[Justine]

There is no need to worry. This place exists in the realm of dreams.

Visualize yourself dancing in your mind. When you do, your body will move accordingly.


[Futaba]

What the heck!? Did you use a cheat code?


[Caroline]

Consider it a result of our assistance. It'll all make sense when you try it out.


[Makoto]

It's... a bit hard to believe, but I suppose after all that we've been through...


[Morgana]

I think I'm catching on. You're requesting us to dance, so...

We'll treat it like we always did. A request for the Phantom Thieves!


[Morgana]

...Right?


[Morgana]

...Right?


[Morgana]

...Right?


[Caroline]

Hmph, take it as you wish. But it's not like you have a choice in the matter!


[Ryuji]

Hey, uh, we're kinda busy here. Can't you ask someone else?


[Caroline]

Running away, are you? Guess that skull and crossbones was just for show.


[Ryuji]

What did you say!? Dammit, I know you're just tauntin' me, but I'm still gettin' pissed.



This dancin' shit'll be easy. Just you watch!


[Ann]

I can't believe you still took the bait.

Well... You two did help out our leader, right? Guess it's only fair we take your request.


[Morgana]

When someone's in need, we can't back away. That is our duty as phantom thieves.


[Yusuke]

I suppose I'll rise to the challenge. This could be interesting.


[Futaba]

M-Me too! I'm a phantom thief, so I've gotta!


[Makoto]

Well... They're a bit pushy, but I'll come along.


[Haru]

This "ball" is basically a party, right? As long as we're all on the same page, I guess I don't mind.


[Morgana]

It's up to you now. Well?


It's showtime!

If you're all in, then...


[Ann]

Hahaha, it's been a while since I've heard those words. It's settled, then!


[Ann]

OK, then it's unanimous.


[Caroline]

*chuckle* Then the contract has been sealed!


[Justine]

We have prepared the necessary surroundings. Let me explain it in layman's terms.


[Justine]

First, this blue area will serve as your VIP room.


[Caroline]

Use it for practice, breaks, or whatever you want. But don't go slacking off!


[Makoto]

So this isn't the dance hall?


[Justine]

The stages you'll be performing upon lie beyond this room.



We recreated locales our prisoner is familiar with. You need only speak up when you wish to dance.


[Caroline]

They were specially made by us! You'd better be excited!


[Justine]

Additionally, we have prepared a personal room for each of you.

These are designed for your ultimate relaxation, so you will be able to perform at your best.


[Ryuji]

Man, this is legit celeb treatment. Pretty sweet.


[Caroline]

We'll give you the keys later. Keep yourselves in peak condition.


[Futaba]

I-I got a question! How long does this "ball" last?

Sojiro's gonna freak if I disappear for too long...


[Justine]

This place exists between mind and matter.

The limits of time and space you are accustomed to do not apply here.


[Caroline]

No matter how much time you spend here... When you wake up, it'll be morning as usual.

And all your memories of this place will be erased. So nothing to worry about, right?


[Futaba]

We're not gonna remember? Guess it is a dream, huh...


[Yusuke]

A fleeting ball, where we dance the night away together... This could be a true masterpiece.


[Ryuji]

You sure look real happy...


[Caroline]

That's it for now.

We went out of our way to put all this together. Now that you've accepted, you'd better do it!


[Justine]

You're free to begin by warming up, or perhaps learning the basics...

If you're confident in your skills, you may take to the stage right away. Do as you see fit.

If you have any questions, we will answer them later. We are here to assist you as needed.


[Caroline]

Remember, this is part of your rehabilitation! You'd better work hard, Inmate!


[Makoto]

A ball huh... It really doesn't make much sense.


[Morgana]

Right? If we're calling ourselves phantom thieves, dancing is only natural!

It's part of any gentleman's repertoire.


[Morgana]

Nyahahaha... Lady Ann, keep your eyes on me! I'm gonna look cooler than you've ever imagined!


[Ryuji]

Lay off, cat. And where the hell is that confidence coming from?

Well... Guess we got no choice either way. Time to hype everyone up with our dancin', yeah?


[Morgana]

All right, I'll leave the rest to you. Show us the way as always, Leader.

Hear that, everyone? Don't go falling behind! Follow my lead!


[Ryuji]

Are you takin' orders or givin' 'em!?


[Futaba]

...Wh-Wh-Where are we?! It's like, super flashy!


[Ann]

I woke up and it was pitch black... So I followed the light, and ended up... here.

Did I... die in my sleep? No way.


[Yusuke]

This scenery is rather magnificent for Hades. I appreciate the deep blue atmosphere.


[Makoto]

But look at Mona... Are we in the Metaverse again?


......

......?


[Morgana]

Hey, you're awake.


Morgana?

That form...


[Ryuji]

Right!? When I opened my eyes, he was all up in my face!

Talk about a rude awakening.


[Morgana]

What was that!? Do you want me to knock you back out, then?


[Ryuji]

Oh yeah!? Come at me, cat!

[Caroline]

[Futaba]

Whoa! Did you just spawn!?


[Justine]

It is rather hard to believe you all have been through such profound strife.


[Makoto]

Where did they-- Who are you?


[Ryuji]

And whaddaya want with us?


[Morgana]

Wait, Ryuji! Those two are--


[Ann]

By "Inmate," they mean... you, right? Do you know them, Joker?


They helped me.

They gave me hell.

They're split again?

I guess I'll give it a try...

Unused Models

P5D-Unused-HD-Zen-and-Rei.png
Unused HD models of Zen and Rei, from Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth from the unused stage mentioned below. They are missing their walking animations.

P3D-P5D-test-model-1-max.png P3D-P5D-test-model-2-maya.png
Found in the Playstation 4 version, renders of a tall pillar and a wide pillar, named uv_ani_max.GFS and uv_ani_maya.GFS respectively. Likely test models due to their textures named test01.dds. The names seem to be after the 3D modeling programs, 3ds Max and Maya.

Music Videos

In the PlayStation 4 version, assets from the game's Music Videos, Life Will Change and Last Surprise, are left unused in favor of video files of them.

Unused Stage

There is a stage based on Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth's ending credits, where Zen and Rei walk as scenes from the game (either Persona 3 or Persona 4's side) scroll by. This was meant to be downloadable content for both here and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, but the content was released as a video file with a separate audio track instead, thus leaving the stage and the models unused. The stage itself is still functional via modding, although it's "longer" than most songs so it's not possible to see everything in it, but trying to load Zen and Rei crashes the game. This stage is only found in the Vita version.

Unseen Texture

Futaba's door in her room has textures for the front side but they can never been seen in-game.
