MCP3Close

The "cut-in" that takes place when the Protagonist of Persona 3 summons a Persona.

Cut-in (カットイン?) or close-up is an effect in the Persona series.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Cut in is a stylish animation technique used to depict character's portrait in Japanese animes and video games. It is usually presented with a sudden overlapping of the thin stripe of close-up of character's eyes over the screen to create a tense or climatic effect, used when summoning the Persona the first time or to deal critical or weakness-exploiting damage. Another type of cut-in is by arranging the characters' bust portraits stylishly all over the screen to depict the preparation of All-Out Attack (Persona 3 onwards) or Fusion Spells (Persona 2 duology remakes).

In the Japanese version, the cut-in for critical damage has the onomatopoeia, "カッ?" in P3 and P4 and "ブチッ?" in P5, to express the sound effect of the cut-in sequence. It is replaced by a double exclamation mark (!!) in the oversea releases.

Although it was not Atlus who invented the cut-in effect, it successfully defines the style of the Persona spin-off series and derives some fair amount of fan-made tribute works or parodies of the cut-in artworks, of either media related to Megami Tensei series or not.
