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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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!

Doesn't have a paper cover like a lot of animes have. Also there is nothing inside the case besides the Blu-Rays (No episode guides or interior case art). Read morePublished 13 months ago by ReallyHopeless
