Being a Shinto priest's dog, he thought of giving him the same garments. The wings attached to his costume were Yukari and Fuuka's idea. He is kind and has shown extreme loyalty, choosing to stay at his master's shrine long after his death and going for a walk everyday like he used to with his master. He is also very protective of the shrine, as shown when he risked his life to defend it, but got seriously injured in the process.
According to Aigis , he considers the shrine a sacred place. Koromaru also exhibits numerous human characteristics, despite being a dog. He exhibits intelligence far above that of most dogs.
He is fiercely loyal, and particularly close with Shinjiro Aragaki , who often feeds him special food and takes extra care of him. He is a fan of a show called "The True Battles of Real Men," which exhibits acts of courage from real people. He begs the protagonist to take him to the theater for a special showing of the final episodes of the show. Koromaru whines and runs around after the movie until the protagonist agrees to purchase the boxed set after its release.
In Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth , even though he gets along with everyone, he dislikes Kanji Tatsumi for some unexplained reason and refuses to let Kanji pet him. Koromaru was a stray dog that Fuuka Yamagishi and Yukari Takeba played with regularly. A housewife tells them that Koromaru's master, a monk from Naganaki Shrine , had died in an accident about 6 months ago from June Koromaru continued to protect the shrine and wait for his master's return. One night July 29 , a rogue Shadow is detected outside of Tartarus.
The shadow wanders into the shrine area, where it is killed by Koromaru. Akihiko Sanada manages to reach the shrine, only to find the shadow defeated and Koromaru injured. Akihiko is very impressed at the dog's bravery and intelligence, and Mitsuru Kirijo makes sure that he receives the best veterinary care possible.
On August 8th, Shuji Ikutsuki decides to have a special Evoker made for Koromaru that he can wear and use as a collar. He also wears protective clothing and fights with knives. Koromaru joins SEES after he recovers from his injuries. Koromaru cannot communicate directly with his dorm mates, but they manage to understand him through his actions and from Aigis translating for him.
Koromaru is called "a white beast with red eyes" by Akinari Kamiki , whose pen is stolen by the dog. Akinari doesn't seem too angry about the theft of the pen, but he will not talk with the protagonist until he retrieves the pen. In the FES version of the main game, the protagonist can take Koromaru for a walk in the evenings.
Typically, Koromaru goes to the shrine to play. Sometimes, a dorm mate will accompany the protagonist, where they have a conversation while Koromaru plays. In the event the protagonist goes alone with Koromaru, he will get a random item, or have an encounter with a Social Link , which will allow their relationship to deepen. Koromaru is now a Social Link of the Strength Arcana. However, his Social Link is only available for the female protagonist.
You will need to get Dog Food from Fuuka to initiate this Social Link, and she will give it to you during one of her Social Link events. Koromaru's Social Link can be activated on August 15th. You may only take Koromaru on walks after completing his Social Link. Through Junpei's memories on the Abyss of Time , it is revealed Koromaru stayed alongside Junpei during a night at the Paulownia Mall while he was depressed because of his father's alcoholism problem.
Being as intelligent as he is, Koromaru understood Junpei was in need of someone to stay by his side, something Junpei realized by seeing the scene again and now remembers fondly. A few hours after that, the Dark Hour came into effect and Junpei met Akihiko and awakened to his Persona.
They intend to beat everyone so they can calm down, then think clearly about what they really want to do. After the two heroes complete the request , The Power of the Wild Card , Margaret explains to everyone how their Personas can now evolve and attain new power. Koromaru and Shinjiro stick around after everyone else is dismissed, and ask if it is possible for them to keep their personas, rather than attaining new ones. Koromaru explains, through Aigis, that he awakened his Persona when Shadows attacked the shrine he used to protect with his owner, and he now uses it to protect his deceased owner's house; he says that he does not want his persona to change so that he can never forget his failure to protect his owner.
Margaret tells them that it should be possible for their personas to remain the same if they focus on keeping things the same when they start to attain new power. Just like the real Aigis , Ribbon can translate Koromaru's dog speeches. Enjoy our content You can listen to all our speaker talks and attend workshops.

Ownership Co-operative ownership andelsboliger. Drivhuset Turn Over Almost half of the current community are original members. In the past 3 years, there has been a new family every year.
Impressions Each family has a dining table in the greenhouse covered street. Although the greenhouse is not a conditioned space, the temperature is comfortable year round with the exception of a few weeks during the summer. The plants in between each unit provides a sense of enclosure and privacy. There is an understood body language that signals whether someone is interested in socializing or prefers to focus on their work.
There was a great sense of communitas and coziness in the greenhouse. Underlying the entire building was a large basement in which bikes were parked and resident storage occurred. This is one of the few communities visited that felt as if there was adequate storage provided. The area was originally a farm that had been sold to the local municipality and then subdivided. Site Planning The community is arranged around a courtyard with 2 entry points, the main one coming in on-axis with the Common House.
The Common House is at the head of the community, overlooking the courtyard as well as a large open lawn to the north. The units are all unique, some being single story units stacked one over another and others being two-story. The kitchen has a commercial oven, stove, refrigerator, and two residential dishwashers. The common house was used throughout the day that we visited Sunday - teenagers bringing over their recycling, a young couple cleaning up from a party the night before, residents checking on the meal, and cooks preparing the meal.
The laundry room was busy, with a few baskets in the cue for washing and numerous baskets of completed laundry waiting to be claimed by their owners. Meals Meals are not mandatory. But it is intended that there are meals every night. Occasionally there are not meals if the dining room is booked for a private event or if there are not enough volunteers to prepare the meal. Generally an announcement is made on Sunday night to indicate when assistance is required over. If no volunteers come forward, meals do not occur on those evenings.
Leftovers are held in the refrigerator until the next meal. Food from private parties can also be left in the common refrigerators and anyone is welcome to eat them. Ownership Co-operatively owned andelsboliger. Once a buyer is secured, they pay the seller the cost of the shares. No money is exchanged with the community. Turn Over There has been a moderate amount of turnover.
It seemed to be an average of about one unit per year. When units are available, a committee decides the type of household they are looking for to balance the needs of the community i. This allows them to maintain a diversity of households and future sustainability they hope to avoid having all residents becoming elderly at once or all the children growing up and moving away simultaneously. Potential residents are contacted to attend an open house and then a few families are selected for interviews. Impressions While the Common House was large and had numerous rooms for both children and adults, there was no guest room.
When the local municipality declined their proposal, Finn and Marianne rallied their friends in the neighborhood to buy the property themselves. Originally, this was not a highly desirable neighborhood, now it is a highly sought after urban neighborhood in the second largest city in Denmark. The Common House occupies roughly the corner of the site.
During the early planning phase, the community realized that the zoning allowed the property to be built out to a greater density. They instead chose to to reduce their property taxes by retaining the existing number of homes. The lower level has the laundry, drying room, toilet, pantry, and workshop. There is a large picnic table and common garden outside the Common House. Many of the residents feel that the common house is an extension of their own home.
The scale of the Common House is comfortable for a meeting or gathering. At the same time, residents feel comfortable to watch TV alone or use the oven for personal baking one house has never had an oven. Meals Daily Sun — Friday. Each night the meals are prepared by two people. The shopping is done locally by 4pm. The cost of the meal is divided by the number of diners that evening. All families participate. Ownership The homes are privately owned with a share of the common space.
The entire property and 8 homes were , dkk in Now each home is worth about 2. The homes are sold by the individual owner. This also allows the buyer to sell even though their potential buyer may be rejected. Turn Over 3 of the original 8 families remain in the community. Turn over has not been common due to the small number of units available. Eight families originally lived here, but one of the units has been legally divided into 2 units. Sustainable Design Reuse of the existing masonry rowhouses and reducing reliance on transportation and infrastructure are two primary sustainable features of this urban community.
Impressions Due to their proximity to the city center, the community does not see their young adults leaving as quickly as in suburban communities. While it is possible that these individuals may feel isolated in other communities, here their connectedness to the surrounding neighborhood appears to maintain their interest to stay. In keeping with the grass roots beginnings of the group, the members of the community are still active in local politics i. Kaj and Anna were part of the founding group and learned about the site after Kaj had surveyed it for another party as a 6-unit development.
The city had a comprehensive plan and the project did not conform to the plan so it was not approved. Later, he heard that there was another plan for the site and was interested to see what was being proposed and went to the public meeting. At this meeting he learned that three families bought the property and were starting a cohousing group.
It can be reached through a covered hallway from 3 of the other homes. It is used by children and adult throughout the year. There are rules for use including quiet times. The Common House is a two story building within the volume of the Hall. Someone usually makes a pot of coffee and everyone stops by for a cup to catch up before heading into their home. Most recently the kitchen was extensively renovated — it was visually opened up to the Hall and is seen by the residents as a success. The main level of the Common House is comprised of the kitchen, dining room, and toilet room.
There is a large west-facing partio outside the dining room which is sometimes used for dining in the summer months. Since the community has no guest room, this room serves this purpose for overnight visitors. While many would like to have nightly meals, there are times when there are no meals. And some families never participate in the meals. The process is simple. If you feel like preparing a meal, you write into the calendar the meal you will cook. One other person will sign up to help prepare the meal. These two people buy the groceries, prepare the meal.
Others will see that a meal is planned and may sign up to eat. At the end of the month a bill is prepared with a credit for groceries purchased and meals eaten. Ownership Private ownership ejerboliger. There were 21 units at the outset, ranging from m2. The small units have been considered the Achilles heel of the community as several families have been forced to leave because their family outgrew their units. A year ago when one family decided to move, the two adjacent families requested to buy the unit and subdivide it to enlarge their homes.
This was met with support by all but one resident. This was due to additional costs that the community had to incur. By consolidating from 21 to 20 units, the costs of the common space needed to be distributed amongst all the families the community felt that this was the way to make the purchase affordable to the two families. This was a challenging time for the community. Turn Over The newest resident moved in a month ago. The tenure ranges from there to the entire period. Impressions Most people have moved here for 2 reasons.
They really miss living in the City. These are the same reasons that their counterparts in U. In talking to the family in Unit 20, we realized that the Danish people afford their teenage children much greater freedom than in the U. This allowed the children to come and go as they please without disturbing their parents.
There seemed to be some tension related to physical space requirements - the units here were among the smallest of any of the communities visited. Many younger families were feeling cramped in their smalle units; while many of the edlers complained of high monthly operational costs. If the structure was a co-op, it seems that more of the older residents could trade their units for smaller ones to help offset monthly costs , but it is also possible that the elders are accustomed to larger size of their home and may not wish to move into a smaller unit.
This was a stated challenge by both the elder and younger members of the community. The founding members learned of the site because one of them worked for the local municipality. He knew the area had been slated for housing development so they knew their application would not likely be overruled due to land use policies which had been the case in previously sought after sites.
However, the architects instead proposed an L-shaped plan, much like Trudeslund, but with a covered street. Site Planning L-shaped plan with one story units facing the west and south, and two story units to the north and east. The one story units are oriented towards the garden and have terraces directly outside their doors. The two story units do not have ground related terraces, but rather roof decks that provide them with solar access as well as a view. The homes range from 56 — m2. Originally the largest home was 95 m2, but two of the units adjacent the work rooms built out over the work room to create larger units.
One is a rose-garden, encircled by rose bushes, trees, and hedges forming an enclosed space.

And the third space is a large lawn with direct access to the common house. At each end of the two wings are smaller seating alcoves, one with a large, south-facing greenhouse. The architect opened up the two levels of the dining area and introduced new materials to enhance the daylighting and provide for various lighting leves and areas of illumination.
If a teen is living in the apartment for just a few months, then no rent. In addition to the spaces in the Common House, two guest rooms are located in each wing of the covered street. There is a wood working shop in one wing and a craft room in the other. Since they are part of the daily life, these work rooms are often used.
In addition, each wing has a laundry room with a total of 3 washers and 1 dryer. The washing costs are included in the monthly dues and if the machines are busy, the laundry basket with washing instructions are left in a queue for the next person to start. The covered street is a signicant amenity, extending the Common House functions throughout the community. Meals Daily, Sunday through Friday. The meals are prepared in meal groups.
Everyone must participate including children of age 10 and older in the cooking. On Saturdays, the group plans the menu and does the shopping. The vegetables are delivered fresh daily by a local farmer. Each person helps with the meals about times during their week. Preparations begin at with about 4 people 5 on Fridays due to the inclusion of dessert. On Friday nights, the entire meal group thoroughly cleans the kitchen leaving it ready for the next meal group.
There are six meal groups rotating throughout the year.
TNW Conference — The Next Web
Meals are served at with most people staying for an hour or so. On Fridays, people tend to linger and stay until 8 or , bringing cognac or apple brandy from their homes to share with their table. Ownership Andelsboligforignen — cooperative. The shares owned are comparable to the square footage of their home plus a portion of the common areas.
Since it is a co-op, the units are not sold by the individual residents. Prospective buyers are interviewed by a small committee — which includes the neighbors to either side of the unit, another neighbor on that street, and a member of the board. This ensures that the other residents have a chance to meet the prospective resident and that they fully understand their obligations and responsibilities.
In this way, both sides have a clear. Once a year, a special theme night occurs where a meal and speaker are arranged in conjunction with a movie showing. War games — a weekend of enacted war, waged in the dining room starting after dinner on Friday and concluding in the wee hours of the morning Sunday.
Make the right connections
There are about 10 players male adults, children and grown children. The group has taken weekend trips to real-life historical battle sites. Impressions Quite a beautiful common house with the amount of light and the solar exposure. On an early fall afternoon, it is pleasant to prepare the evening meal with the sunlight pouring into the sunken kitchen. The covered street is very successful and extends the social functions of the Common House throughout the community. The covered street is planted with vines and trees, providing a wonderful scale.
The outdoor terraces for the 2-story units are located above sections of the covered street which helps to intermittently bring down the scale of the street. Level changes within the street also help to create interest and changing vistas within the street make it feel intimate. The street has an operable skylight to moderate the temperature in summer months but is not heated. However, it still facilitates the easy use of the common house in that people do not need to bundle-up or put on shoes to go to the Common House especially important in the cold Danish winters.
While there was typical clutter of shoes and extra furniture outside the unit entries, the plants and occasional trellis helped reinforce a comfortable scale and left an overall impression of coziness versus clutter. The community had agreed early on to purchase uniform storage shoe cabinets for eat unit.
These are located in the street along with personal items and lend a sense of cohesiveness to the space. Each unit has a large window facing the covered street. This window allows a tremendous amount of daylight to enter the unit, but is also a way to encourage interaction many greetings are exchanged. Claus and Brigite were the other founding family.
They purchased the property from a contractor that owned the land with the stipulation that the contractor would build the project. At that point they had the option to buy as much land as necessary, so they had to decide the size of their future community. However, at that time there were just two families involved, so in order to maintain momentum for the project, they had to convince the contractor that they were representing a large group of people. The houses are split levels with vaulted ceilings and range from m2.
Site Planning There are two entry points into the community, one pedestrian and one is for those who regularly use their vehicles. The vehicular entry is also the public entry and leads visitors to the Common House. The residences encircle an open green space and the Common House. These two spatial elements provide an appropriate level of priviacy and visual separation.
Common House By far the largest common house visited. The kitchen windows face out to the sandbox. And there is a large terrace adjacent the sandbox and the dining room. The lower level has a ping pong room, pantry, storage, laundry and drying room. The upper level has a. Aside from the main level and laundry, the common house seemed underutilized. The responsibility of securing the common house for the evening falls to the family in the unit corresponding to the date.
Since there are only 30 families, those interviewed were not quite certain what happens on the 31st. Meals Meals occur Monday through Thursday. Every six months families sign up for the nights of the week they want to participate. The hosting family will provide and prepare the entire meal.
No money changes hands. Ownership Ejerboliger. The houses are privately owned with a share of the common spaces. Some have moved within the community several times. Otherwise, the community has been pretty stable with a new family moving in every year. Sustainable Design For almost 22 years there was a windmill on the property. The water lines were quickly clogged with minerals from the hard water. The cost and process for maintaining this system proved too costly and it was abandoned. The excess power generated by the mill was sold back to the power grid. However, the cost and time for maintenance was far in excess of the return.
A couple of years ago, a company that wanted to build a larger mill came around and bought up permits for the smaller mills in the area. Work days The only requirement in the community is that every house must help with maintenance. Every house must clean a part of the common house every 6 weeks a schedule is posted. There are four common work days each year — two for the exterior and two for interior.
Leerbjerg Lod Voting Every house gets two votes. This allows for partners to disagree on topics. Impressions This is a well established community with families that have been friends for many years. The children have strong bonds that are not common with their other friends from outside the community. The community felt very comfortable and communal, while respectful of privacy and boundaries. Nor do they rely so heavily on their websites for recruiting purposes, many communities obtain referrals for new members by word of mouth.
Although there were no guest rooms in the Common House, each of the residences were large and had private guestrooms. There was a serious intention to incorporate sustainable technologies and infrastructure central heating, on-site water treatment, single telephone and internet switch so there was an economy of scale to increasing the number of units. The property was previously farmland and was purchased from the local municipality. The municipality also rents them land beyond their property for raising sheep and cows as well as serving as a green buffer.
The local and regional plan for the surrounding property is for additional housing developments. The municipality had built Roskilde University out by the train with the hopes that the city would grow to this boundary, but it has taken 25 years for the development to occur.
It is inevitable that the property surrounding will also become developed for housing. In the center is also where the central heating plant, recycling center, and central telecommunications are located. Common House There is a Common House for each community. Aside from the community we visited, the Common House was constructed by the contractor along with the housing. The upper level has not been completed, but there are plans for a kids play area and sitting room for adults. Meals Meals occur 3 days a week W-F.
The cohousing community in which Jakob lives is privately owned by the residents as a condo association. The rentals cater to three distinct groups — seniors, families, and young people under 30 at the time of move-in. Each community has a board that manages the operation of the community and represents the community. There are 2 central furnaces fueled by wood pellets with a back up furnace fueled by oil. On-site water treatment has required a change in toilet behavior not only what is put into the septic system — i.
The solids are separated from the liquid waste, including urine with the understanding that if kept uncontaminated for over a year, urine can be neutralized and safely used for watering non-edible plants. There are 4 storage containers for urine under each community 30 m3 each.
Impressions It took the community almost two years to build the Common House. Unfortunately no one had any prior experience with straw bale construction and therefore there were many mistakes along the way. Upon completion, the community was burnt out. They have been trying to get into a routine for common meals, but the participation was not high. It would be interesting to see whether this has self-corrected within a few years. In addition, another cohousing community was completed in Trekoner by Tegnestuen Vandkunsten. The owner of this company resided in the community until When he left, his unit was subdivided and sold as 2 units.
Site Planning The Common House is sited between two common green spaces surrounded by 30 residential units. The community is very inward focused with an internal numbering system for the houses, completely independent from the addresses designated by the postal service. Common House There are three levels to the Common House. The dining room and kitchen comprise the majority of the main level. There are also two common toilets on this level.
The basement has a large room with a ping pong table and shelves for exchanging clothes within the community once a month, the unwanted items are donated to a charity. There is also a workshop, large room for bike parking, common house storage holiday decorations, party supplies , and an extensive community store. On days there are meals, the meal group prepares an afternoon tea at 3pm for children who are home from school as well as the retirees, and those working from home.
The children and adults meet for up to an hour before the dinner group begins the preparations for the evening meal.

While it is not their responsibility, if the evening meal group is not able to be at home in time to prepare the tea, the retirees are often called upon to help out. One retiree voluntarily bakes bread each day for the tea. Meals Daily, Sunday through Wednesday. There are meal groups and each group is responsible for afternoon tea,. Ownership Ejerboliger The homes are individually owned with a share in the common space. Most are individual units, however there have been a few that were divided into two units.
Most recently, there have been about new young families to move in. This has helped to increase the number of new families to the community. Impressions Our host David and his wife Pernille had not intended on living in cohousing. But as an Australian moving to Denmark, David found it great to be welcomed so quickly into a community. David enjoys the afternoon teas. But long after the children had grown, the tradition continued and is now the highlight of the day for those who work from home or are retired.
Our host had not arrived home from work yet, but we were met by those who showed up they had been alerted to our arrival and it was a natural, comfortable way to slowly become immersed in their community. Many of the residents worked in Copenhagen and were quite happy with their easy daily commute. Not only in the cultural consciousness to create the perfect level of coziness, but also for orderliness and precision of all acts, environments, and objects. However, this comes at the expense of maintaining contact with friends and family outside the community.
Directly behind that is the Common House. To either side of the Common House are two wings of housing encircling a common green. The homes along the west side of the green are one story and relate to the garden. The homes along the east side are two-story and have garden access to the east and west. Each of the common greens has a sandbox and play equipment. The community is very inward focused, both in site planning as well as social events.
The dining room is generous and includes a seating area. This functions quite well. There are two common toilets and a laundry room which is appeared to be too small. Participation is optional, but most families participate. Ownership Ejerboliger - The homes are privately owned with shares of the common space as a condominium. The cost of the homes is currently attracting young professionals or more established elderly people. However, as they continue to age and the value of the homes increase, there is looming question of how the community will change over time. A Dream Club meet to discuss dreams and once a year invites a professional to help interpret dreams.
