Your favorite P3P protagonist, and why!
Right, so Persona 3 Portable would've been considered a technical downgrade if it hadn't made up for the presentation drop and lack of "The Answer" by giving the player the option to play through the game as a female protagonist instead of the traditional Male Blue-Haired Emo Shinji Ikari (Except Not NEARLY As Whiny, and Blessedly Silent) Protagonist... and by injecting all of Persona 4's battle system improvements, although I kinda miss the old Fusion Spell system. For a change, this actually constitutes a significant difference in gameplay content that I can appreciate beyond the aethetic difference of playing as a guy versus playing as a girl.
So I was wondering: what is everyone's favored P3P protagonist to play as, and what they prefer about it.? Mine's the female one, by a slim margin. For one thing, I just appreciate her design a bit more than the male protagonist's, who looks a bit anime-stereotypical with his blue hair and stuff. I also like the naginata weapon type more than the shortsword, and prefer "Wiping All Out" and "Danger Zone" over "Mass Destruction" and "Master of Tartarus" as battle and sub-boss themes. I also appreciate the differing Social Links and the female protagonist's more vibrant assortment of dialogue options (she's definitely livelier than the male protagonist is). I could do without the blinding pink HUD design, but meh, nothing's perfect...
I like Minato more,The female mc is good but She is a girl an I'm a boy an doing the social Links with other dudes wanting her left me feeling awkward(Since you play as her),On a side note I would not mind P5 having a Female Mc as long as we could date other girls.
Is it wrong that I read this post and heard Kanji Tatsumi reading it out in my head?

I'm playing as a girl and I'm romancing a guy; the scene I'm watching isn't terribly different from when I romance a girl while playing as a guy, except that I'm choosing the dialogue options for the other participant this time around. Not much to be awkward about there. (I am quite reluctant to do any guy/guy romances such as the Steve Cortez one in Mass Effect 3, but that's just me being a typical "guy" myself...)

I prefer the female MC in P3P due to what I believe to be a better design, battle themes and school themes that I believe were better than the male counterparts, her livelier atmosphere and the ability to have social links with the males on your team which I think fleshed them out a lot more (specifically Shinji).
Well, if it's just P3P, then I'd have to say the girl, because it allowed for a new experience.
Archangelic Iron Beast
1. She uses Naginata which I was not use to seeing in RPGs
2. I like to use girl characters when I can.
3. I like some of her social links more.
4. I just like her character in general
New Kid in School
FeMC for numerous reasons
1.I'm really tired of having to play as a boy.
2. I felt he relationships with the other members of SEES were better developed than the MC and a lot less forced
3. I prefer her music
4.From the dialogue choices we are given I greatly prefer her personality she is really kind and cheerful.
5.I'm allowed a sort of Lady/Lady romance for once with Aigis.
FeMC too! I really liked her personality; like StrangeLove said, she just seems more open and cheerful. Plus, some of her dialogue choices are hilarious.
"How did you know which lever to pull to stop the train?"
Honestly, that reply nearly knocked me off my chair the first time I saw it!
My favortie character of the series is Akihiko, so as dumb as it sounds i focus on him more than the main character. I don't mind playing as either. The game is a masterpiece anyway.
