The video games like to delve into what-if scenarios, e.g. in one of them Spike the Devil Man stops Frieza and King Cold when they come to Earth.
The Supersonic Warriors games on GBA and DS had short what-if story campaigns for all playable characters. The DS one even had some route splits and alternate endings.
English translation was a bit censored when it comes to references of death and killing, but they're still pretty fun.

Just finished binging a show called Kamisama no Memochou, or Heaven's Memo Pad. Wew boy do I have mixed feelings about this show.

Haven't really watched the anime version, but I did read 3 volumes of the novel way back in the day.
Pretty much one of the first few mystery genre stuff aside from Detective Conan that I've read, and I thought it was pretty fun.
Volume 3 was my favorite arc out of the three, but the anime covered up to just volume 2, I think? Because I've seen spoilers and it ends with Ayaka waking from her coma, same as the beginning of volume 3.
That was part of the reason why I never watched the anime past episode 1, which I'm pretty sure was anime-original aside from character introductions.

Also don't really remember any prominent shipping between Narumi and Alice in particular though. I thought it was made pretty clear that the dude is interested in Ayaka. (Then again, it's been almost 10 years since I've read them)

I can't remember if this was true or not, but I remember hearing that the P5 anime didn't even actually finish the story.
Oh, yeah, it was finished in two special episodes some time after the series finished airing.

Persona 4 also did that, finished the game's true end in a movie.

The Persona 5 anime can come off as rushed to those who have played the game because the game's life sim mechanics make it generally slower-paced. The anime goes straight to the main plot a lot faster whereas in the game you have a lot of downtime before the "arcs."

One thing that got cut down a lot is the "Confidants" aspect of the game, where you spend time with (mostly) non-story characters and deepen the MC's bonds with them. This aspect got trimmed down for time in the Persona 3 movies, too.
