I don't know how to hide spoilers in this forum. I would like to post it so that those who have read the book can tell me if it's really worth it to continue.

As for spoilers, I generally hate 'em, but strangely, if the series/game/whatever is good enough, they're less of a factor in the end. For example, I got this spoiler for Evangelion before I finished the series:
Rei being a quasi-clone of Shinji's mother.
This really annoyed me at the time. However, Eva has since become one of my favorite anime series. Same goes for Gurren Lagann, which I was spoiled for regarding
On the flipside, I was spoiled for
Tidus' death/ceasing to exist
prior to playing Final Fantasy X, and I believe that most certainly affected my enjoyment of that game.
I also actively seek out basic plot synopses if I suspect that something I'm interested in might contain content that would offend or otherwise annoy me, but that happens rarely.
So, it varies, but in general, I try my damndest to avoid them. Like you, I'm pretty sensitive to them, especially when it comes to a game/series/etc. that I'm currently enjoying.
I understand where you're coming from, but have you ever tasted something that was so good that you don't even think of sharing it with anyone? Especially when you were a kid? That's Nanako's Big Bromlette in a nutshell :3 It also lends the MC's cooking skillz an air of mystery amongst his friends, which is humorous in its own way.
Our resident BlueShinra just went through that version of the game herself so she should be able to offer some advice whenever she comes around.
I still have all my P4 (PS2) save files, so I'll take a look later at what skills, levels, etc. my team had for that fight. I do remember that my team was Teddie, Kanji, and Yukiko. I think there was a certain piece of equipment that helped a lot, and like Indignate said, you need a decent amount SP replenishing items (I usually try to hoard them as much as possible for these sorts of SMT/Persona bosses). IIRC, I didn't beat him on the first try, but I did on the second or third; the Bewildering Fog threw me off at first as well.
- Square Enix Taito Eidos Kupo: There's new Kingdom Hearts 2.5 and Theatrhythm Curtain Call trailers out, so those for sure. KH3 will be a no-show, but I'm not sure about FFXV. I think there's a good chance for new FFXIV content to be shown, though E3 isn't a PC-heavy show, so who knows. Bravely Second would be a nice surprise, but I'm not holding my breath.
- Sega Sammy Atlus Hee-Ho: All the Persona spinoffs! P4 Arena Ultimax, Persona Q, and P4: Dancing All Night. I don't think we'll see anything of Persona 5 until Tokyo Game Show.
- Namco Bandai Bandai Namco Mieuuuu: I haven't kept up much with Tales but, uh, I guess whatever the next console Tales game will be in Japan, as well as Xillia 2. I think I read somewhere that Tales of the World: Reve Unitia won't be released in the US, so we most likely won't see that one.
- Marvelous AQL XSEED: Would really love to see more of Forbidden Magna (the Rune Factory team's new game), but I'm not sure it'll happen this E3. Localization on that is all but guaranteed, anyway. Other than that, I can't think of much else besides Story of Seasons (a Harvest Moon game that can't be called Harvest Moon here because of legalities).
- Nippon Ichi: More Neptunia, I guess? What are they working on now that hasn't been announced for the US yet?
- Nintendo: The Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire remakes for sure. Ruby was my first Pokemon, so I'm interested to see more about these. No Mario RPGs: we already have our once-per-gen Paper Mario and it's too early for another Mario & Luigi. Hoping so badly for Dragon Quest VII to make an appearance, though all those other DQ 3DS games would be more than welcome as well. Oh, and Fantasy Life (well, more Level-5 in general would be great). Dragon Quest X would be pretty neat. Haven't seen much of X or that MegaTen/Fire Emblem crossover lately, so maybe those.
- WRPGs: Witcher 3 is the big one this year, it seems, though I wouldn't be surprised if BioWare and Bethesda made some major new announcements; Fallout 4 seems like the most likely candidate for Bethesda, and as for BioWare, now that it's a new console gen and they're done with the Mass Effect story, they seem to be in a good position to unveil a whole new IP.
I've especially never played anything with this kind of storyline/art style before either.
Story-wise, the setting and basic premise remind me very heavily of The World Ends with You, which is… well, I can't heap enough praise on that game. However, the characterization and some of the finer details feel a bit more suitably MegaTen.
I'm not entirely sure if I like the art style/character designs. For the most part, they're fine, but there's some that I'm not all that fond of.
