And here’s the complete and final version of the interview I’ve been translating with Persona series director Katsura Hashino about Persona 5, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, and Persona Q, now with all of the pages compiled into one place. As stated before, I apologize for not translating the last two pages until tonight; apparently I had an incomplete source for the original magazine scans, which has since been rectified. The Persona 5 interview has also seen some light corrections, mostly to remove any references to Famitsu upon being told by multiple kind readers that it was the official Persona magazine that actually conducted this interview.
Once again, huge thanks to Naotolan for stepping up to the plate and volunteering to handle the image editing work for the last two pages. It was an extremely huge relief to be able to just focus on translating and typesetting and I’m in your debt, duder. Seriously.
Should there be more illuminating interviews like this in the future that are published, I think it’d be reasonable to expect that I’ll scanlate those as well, but until then, this should be the last of my work you see on this one specifically unless it turns out I wrote everything in Al Bhed or something. Hope you have as much fun reading it as I did translating it. It’s been a crazy ride seeing this all blow up on Tumblr and elsewhere!
As always, make sure to right click these images after first clicking on them in this post and then open them in another tab to view them at their full and thoroughly readable size.
Thank you so much for the translation!

On Valentine’s Day, the female staff of the team secretly planned and gave the male staff chocolates, with the first card! And on White Day, the guys, not only who could draw, gave the second card in return!
