persona 5 is peak "depoliticized politics", lots of messaging about needing to fight but never any about who to fight against. it's decent enough, though, and probably easier to read leftism into it than rightism, for what it's worth.
>Hashino saga is adolescence incarnated. The angst, the yearning for belonging, the rebelliousness. It'll always remain a mystery how these games are popular with adults outside of waifufaggotry and maybe MAYBE a tinge of nostalgia for high school.
same appeal as any high school anime (which is what those games are); getting to live the high school adventure that you as a nerdy loser never had. p4 is the worst about this, protagonist is a total chad who has an idol singer fall in love with him basically as soon as they meet. oddly enough it probably had the best gameplay in the whole series, 1 through 5. i'll always have a soft spot for p3 though, played is a teenager and it introduced me to megaten, cried a lot then because i was and still am a little bitch.
megaten in general tends to be kinda based (but not always). jrpgs used to be oddly left-leaning as a whole until they reached the inevitable point where they just became a self-feeding nostalgia cycle that can only satisfy the commercial urge for more of the same instead of actually trying anything new, leading to a conservative fanbase that resists anything that threatens the purity of their trash.
though fwiw the genre didn't fall prey to this effect to nearly the same extent as anime in general did.
