下手の横好き世界5 by William Van Hecke

Leveled up a little more...

Leveled up a little more, to 44. I thought my guys would have infinite stamina the night before a full moon, but both Aigis and Mitsuru became exhausted. I took that as a sign to try fighting Strega again.

Hitting the Muscle Drinkos pretty hard, and used up one of my three Somas. I think between Persona 2 and 3, I’ve had fewer than 10 Somas. I do love how the item names, spell names, and other details have been consistent throughout the series. I do miss the Satomi Tadashi drugstore, though.

Aaagh, had Jin down to one or two more hits, but then they killed me. This boss fight is starting to give me a Persona 2 type feeling of seeming probably winnable, but devastatingly cruel. This is the most Persona-2-like part of the game so far, really, in that I’m finally fighting an actual important, story-related boss battle, and it is trouncing me.

Next couple of tries didn’t go so well, either. This game is cruel! It’s remarkable how often I seem to be almost winning on the first try of a boss battle, then fail so many times in a row.

…And I finally beat them! The boss battle that made me give up on this game 70 days ago is over! I hope I don’t have to go through anything like that again.

There is another boss battle after it. With no save point. ;____;

Yep, I spent 75 minutes fighting it, brought it to about 20% health, and then died.
