Feeling bummed, he tries to use his puppy dog face to guilt trip Sakuya to hang out with him since he has no one else to hang out. He says he wants to eat with Sakuya at Wild-duck Burger. It works as he felt kinda guilty for him which makes Aigis strongly against getting to hear him. Feeling happy that Sakuya accepts his offer.

As Junpei screamed for joy, Chidori’s nurse barred in and told him he’s being too loud and he needs to leave since visiting hours are over. Annoyed by her, Junpei asks a few things which was not telling Mitsuru he was here since he didn’t know the clock in the hospital was off, and give the sunflowers to Chidori. Before he leaves, Junpei confessed his love to Chidori. After he left, Chidori looks at the revived sunflowers, smiling a while calling Junpei an idiot.

She asks Natsuki if she can teach her to make cookies next time, and she agrees to teach her. When Natsuki asks Fuuka why they have to study again, it is "for our future", and what their future would be like in ten or twenty years since she is unable to picture it. She reassured her that it would be a normal future. Natsuki asks her what she wants to do since they can figure it out together. Fuuka says she has to consider what her parents want. Natsuki asks her again what she really should do what she wants, not what her parents want her to be. She can always ask her for advice. Fuuka happily thanked her.

  • An original scene shown in Jin’s flashback were several years ago where Jin and Chidori were saved by Takaya when they were children. Which is never shown in the game.

  • During Christmas Eve, everyone pitch in to cheer up Junpei by present him not only by Chidori’s sketchbook, but a Christmas tree with sunflower ornaments based on Chidori’s drawing for him.

  • After Ryoji informs S.E.E.S. about the Fall, Junpei attacks Kotone in rage and he almost pushes her down like in the male route except Akihiko stops Junpei immediately.

Except Yukari and Aigis fights with the other Shadows, Akihiko and Ken fights Jin like in the manga, Mitsuru and Junpei fights Takaya, and Fuuka accompany Sakuya/Kotone with them. In the movie, Fuuka choose to stay behind to help Yukari and Mitsuru against the Shadows.
      • The rest of the them manages to catch up with Sakuya/Kotone and Fuuka before they reach the top of Tartarus.
    • Jin does not kill himself after he was defeated. Instead, he uses his last of his strength to reunited with Takaya before their life expires and from their injuries from SEES.
    • During the final battle against Nyx Avatar, it implies Orpheus Telos is Sakuya/Kotone’s Ultimate Persona since Messiah doesn’t not appear at all.
  • In both routes, neither protagonists choose to be with someone in their last moments besides Aigis in March.

Male Route[]

  • Due to Chidori’s death is permanent in the male route, Junpei and Chidori meets in the dream like state.

Trivia[]

  • This is the first stage play to have two separate parts rather than one.
  • During the recap for the fourth stage play, due to Ikutsuki’s actor is completely absent, an archive of him from the previous stage play is shown instead.
  • Elizabeth and Theodore don't appear in the final stageplay. Instead, they appear in a flashback of the previous stage play. Their voices can be heard either in the Velvet Room or through their cellphones.
  • Since Shinjiro's actor wasn't present in either version (except the final chapter), he was played by one of the ensemble cast in -Ai no Seiyaku-.
  • Both of the actors who play Ken switch to their original respective routes like the second stageplay, -Gunjou no Meikyuu-.
  • Yukari working part-time as Feather Swan in Phoenix Ranger Featherman R's outdoor show is a nod to Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
