Maki has joined the party! (Wait...weren't you supposed to be in the hospital? Then...who's that other girl?) Now, my next plan is to bust Mark out of prison (where he shall "dance crazy!", no doubt). I still have a while before I can access the Velvet room, so I'm going to try to get as many cards as possible.
It's weird that I can talk to zombies in this game, while in Persona 2 they wouldn't listen to anything you had to say. Hm.
