Product Description

The mystery of the murders seems to have been solved, but the riddle of the Velvet Room and the lethal Midnight Channel is an enigma that Yu and the other students who form the Investigation Team still have to crack. And that's to say nothing of the question of how their powers of Persona work in the first place, and how the fictional Teddie can exist in the real world. As conundrums wrap in conundrums, and the school year burns inexorably towards a blistering summer, the team must prepare for the most deadly challenge yet while still pretending to lead normal high school lives. But that won't be easy under the evil eye of their new homeroom teacher. And when Detective Shirogane reenters the game with new information about irregularities in the police investigation and clues that may lead to an entirely different conclusion; both team and detective find themselves playing the role of prey once more! The body count is on the rise, the Shadows attack and new Persona are about to ascend as the Midnight Channel launches the ultimate cancellation program in the grand finale of PERSONA 4: The Animation!


As the fantasy-adventure Persona 4 (2011) continues, the story undergoes some curious shifts and changes. The plot involving an alternate reality beyond the television screen falls by the wayside, as Yu Narukami and his friends in the flyspeck town of Inaba devolve into a gang of ordinary teenagers. They busy themselves with the inevitable school festival and some slapstick comedy at a traditional Japanese onsen (hot springs inn). The writing is often very clever, especially the way the two linked "Stormy Summer Vacation" episodes play against each other. But Yu's uncle, Detective Dojima, can't bring the serial murders in Inaba to a satisfactory conclusion. Neither can "Detective Prince" Naoto, who joins Yu and others at Yasogami High and in the TV world. The murders and the threat represented by the alternate world return in a series of effects-heavy confrontations involving the teenagers' "personas," powerful alter egos who battle the resident demons. The story seems to end with episode 25, only to be followed by a second climactic battle pitting Yu against a bizarre creature who may embody human consciousness. The over-the-top finale that borrows elements from Evangelion and Cardcaptor Sakura feels tacked-on and unnecessary. Yu and his chums--exuberantly klutzy Yosuke, bossy Chie, shy Yukiko, pretty Rise, tough guy Kanji, and newcomer Naoto--form an appealing cast; discovering the killer's true identity is enough of an achievement for them. The flamboyant extra battle may tie into the PlayStation 2 games on which the show is based, but Persona 4 would feel more coherent without it. (Rated TV 14 V: violence, violence against women, risqué humor, grotesque imagery, nudity, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

The "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona" role-playing video game series developed and published by Atlus and has won over fans due to its darker storyline and it's one of the few games to incorporate a Japanese atmosphere incorporating simulation type games relating to its characters.

Created back in 1996, "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona" has continually evolved and its fifth installment, "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4″ (the fifth installment in the SMT: Persona series) was no doubt a popular title in the series when it was released on the PlayStation 2 in 2008.

The video game would inspire a 25-episode anime series titled "Persona 4: The Animation" , which aired on Japanese television in 2011-2012.

In 2012, with the release of the PlayStation Vita version of the game (titled "Persona 4: Golden") and the fighting game sequel "Persona 4 Arena" for the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, what better time than now to release the anime series "Persona 4: The Animation" on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Sentai Filmworks.

With the first volume of "Persona 4: The Animation" featuring the first 12-episodes released in September 2012, the second collection featuring 13-26 was released in January 2013.


"Persona 4: The Animation" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1 aspect ratio). The anime series is vibrant and colorful. The overall look of "Persona 4″ is stylish and cool, but it's interesting to see its use of pink with white on the faces of the characters. It's definitely a different use of coloring for characters but watching this anime series, color plays a big part in this series to set a mood.

While I've never actually played any of the Persona games it's hardly necessary to enjoy the anime series as the character and storyline are more then enough to keep you entertained throughout the series. The basic story is you have a young highschool student Yu Narukami going to small Japanese town to stay with his uncle for awhile when a strange string of murders start to happen for no apparent reason as Yu investigates the weird situation he finds out that it's due to a weird connection to something called the Midnight Channel and as he continues he meets friends and comrades who help each other try and stop the murders and solve the mystery of the Midnight Channel. The animation is decent but not the usual kind seen with the more known series like Gundam or Naruto it's more a mix of Last Exile and Glass Fleet not the exact animation but a close enough approximation. The one weird thing about the sets is that if you want both the subbed and dubbed audio tracks you have to get the regular dvd sets not the blu-ray ones which seems a little strange as if you get the blu-ray version you will only have the dubbed audio track and not the subbed audio like on the standard regular set.

I'd advise checking out a few episodes online if possible but after watching a few episodes I'm sure you enjoy this series more then enough to get the entire set for your anime collection to enjoy whenever you wish.

It seems like the case is solved, a murder is arrested and the Investigative team works to enjoy golden week and summer vacation by going on trips. But things are not all as it seems, Yu is running around on a mysterious mission - which has Naniko don the Magical Detective Loveline cape to solve the mystery, Teddy is popping up all over the place, and the Midnight Channel is quiet. But when the Detective Prince starts going to the school with new questions, even Yu has suspicions that the case is far from solved. As the group work to discover the secret of the Midnight channel, someone close to Yu is taken by the killer. It is a race into the TV world to save the latest victims, but can the bonds and new Persona's that Yu controls be enough or will it be the ultimate cancellation as the Velvet Room prepares to close.

Overall I loved the series, you could hear slight differences in the characters voices from Part 1 to Part 2 but I did not think that it detracted from the story as a whole. I would say that anyone who is a fan of the Persona Series will still enjoy this.

Finally, the second half to the great Persona 4 anime adaption is upon us. This Blu-ray set is only English Dubbed and has the second half of the series, while also containing the special True End episode.

The second half of the series is where I think this show shines the most. Hilarious Social Link episodes and high stakes fights are common in this half of the series. I always recommend that if you are interested in the show to try and play the game first, as the show obviously runs through it, which can ruin the game experience if you haven't already played it.

This set includes a special True End episode that is alternative to the ending of the episode before it. This special is actually worse than the normal ending though. This adaption of the True End from the game (which the True End in the game is absolutely fantastic and way better than the normal ending) is sloppy. They go for some kind of cutting maneuver which means they go from once scene to another and then back a earlier scene again constantly. It is quite nauseating to me, as it should have just been presented in the typical linear format, but the people directing it probably did it this way to cut down on the time of the special. Overall, this True End left me dissatisfied and I would actually recommend almost ignoring it.

Despite that, everything else is here. The very emotional scenes with Nanako, the heavy fighting climax against the true culprit, it is all here. Persona 4 is my favorite video game of all time, so this Anime does mean a lot to me, and I think they really did a good job with this adaption (well... besides the True End special). If you beat the game, or don't plan to ever play it, then I hope you give this Anime a shot!
