    I figured I'd put this up for review seeing as how it just finished. This is one of the better Persona crossovers I've seen. It's a fusion of the universes where Haruhi is pretty much the only person different inserted into the Persona universe.

    I don't want to say too much about the plot besides what's in the summary because it get's explained throughout the story.The writing's of a good quality and it's written with Minato as a silent protagonist which works pretty well. I didn't have much knowledge of Persona besides crossovers but the story was pretty understandable.

    I'd rate it 4/5 myself.

    So, if I understand the last sentence right,it can be understood even if I know nothing about Persona?

    You might need to wiki some some stuff.

    It was pretty good. I liked the trickery with the fonts, but that's a gimmick more than anything else.

    Harhui was pretty spooky, especially in the "Entity" ending, and I enjoyed the description of the eldritch horrors having a party.

    Very, very intriguing story, but I'm not sure how I feel about the endings. I mean, they were neat as hell, but even beyond the whole 'no good end' thing--which, in fairness, was sort of true in P3 anyway--there was all that build up between the characters prior to him floating up to Haruhi, but without any resolution.

    Also, needed more Minato as the Outer God's husbando. Like, that ominous 'I'm hungry' bit--where's that going? Is Minato going to be the new Narly or just become the Eldritch Chef?

    3rd Epilogue, best epilogue.

    ^ I guess the "I'm hungry bit imo, is just the author's way of telling us, the readers, that Haruhi is actually that God who eats worlds aka. Azathoth.

    He kinda said it in the AN notes/spoilers at the very end.

    Yo, author here.

    Thanks for putting it up for review. Sorry, it's a bit late. This actually pushed me to finally make an account here. Anyway, I'd be happy to answer any questions.

    I tried to make things as nice (or bleak) and as final as possible, but yeah, the lingering resentments are supposed to be there, like in the vein of P3's nut-punching ending.

    If some of the things didn't come out too well, that's on me.
