Here is something that has been bothering me while reading up on the personna series trying to understand the plot. "Persona 2: Innocent Sin" on Fandom: "After getting into a fight, the three play a game summoning the Joker, a mysterious antagonist rumored to appear before anyone that calls him. Anyone who fails to tell Joker their wishes, either because they lack one or refuse to tell him, has their "ideal energy" stolen, reducing them to ambition-less shells called Shadow Selves."
In personna 5 you see our protagonist Joker fighting against the "shadow selves" does that mean that the protagonist of personna 5 is an antagonist of personna 2 innocent sin? Is he perhaps trying to redeem himself ? Furthermore, we never mention the name of the town the MC comes from adding more proof to my theory about P5 being about rehabilitation in more than one way because why would one be punished for something they didn't do?
I THINK NOT
