So I have a question. Nothing throughout the series directly connects each of the games/anime/manga/spinnoffs/whatever but there are some references and whatnot. Except for one thing which is the butterfly. From persona 1 opening to persona 5 the animation the butterfly has been a recurring theme/character/sprite whatever you wanna call it. But does anyone know what it means? What's it's significance throughout the series? Or is it just a thing the creator like? I'd like to hear your guys thoughts on it because it's been bothering me quite a bit. For a series that is so deliberate why a butterfly as a recurring idea?
