What began as a triumphant success, both critically and commercially, in the gaming culture at large, even outside of the JRPG community, has now devolved into whoring itself out, Type-Moon style. That is not in of itself a negative connotation, as the spin-off games and the Vita port are great in their own right. However, the event that started the whole milking process started with the announcement of an entire adaptation of Persona 4 in anime form back in 2011. It would be of no surprise to anyone that it was a thing that, in the end, would be looked at as a project that read more

I'm a Persona fans, a huge fan of it! But, i have to say one words for P4 The Golden, "DISSAPOINTING!!!"

Actually i don't want to throw my precious time to write a bad review, but this 'anime' is forced me to do so...

So, let's just get started...,
Story 2/10
The Story, ummm....i can't say much because there not so much to talk about. The story retells the original story with a new character or should i say, this is an alternative setting. Well, i don't care if it's alternative or not, i just want to watch some good stuff. As you can see, P4G is just have read more

First of all, I got to say as a Persona fans, I'm quite disappointed with this series. For you guys out there who haven't watch or play the game (at least Persona 4), don't watch this series yet. This series only emphasize on Marie, the new character from the golden version.

Story 3/10
The series is a bit messed up with characters after characters appear out of nowhere at the beginning of the episode without explaining how they got to meet the protagonist in the first place. The original story is pretty much non-existent here. I do understand they want to emphasize on Marie but at read more

With its plethora of spin-offs, including fighting games, stage productions, a music game, novels, manga, drama CDs, and what have you, the beloved Persona 4 IP has started wearing out its welcome for many. With so many cash-i-- I mean, with so many wonderful different products, it's no surprise that the quality varies wildly, with some things like Persona x Detective and the Arena series exhibiting a complete loss of the subtlety that endeared Persona 4 to so many back in the day. Despite this, the big and manly P4 barrel has only now found its bottom, and its name is Persona 4: the Golden read more

When it come these two in comparison , obviously -

-Both are adaptions of Shin Megami Tensei games.
-Both can fuse the creatures to become stronger.
-Both involves creatures from another world to cause chaos in man's world.
-Both are supernatural genre and great to watch if you already play both of the games that they adapted.
Both have plots involving gadgets like television and mobile phones and are adapted from a video game. Moreover, each series' MC has a girl partner beside them (and the latest one for P4G, Marie). Plus they're both of the mystery genre. And last but not least... ...both have the same excitement and worth to watch!!
Well obviously this will be similar. It's the same series. Although, Persona 4 The Animation and The Golden Animation have different stories. Golden is a bit twisted in story and doesn't exactly go how the original does. But, that's for you to decide if you like it or not.
Well.... its persona, but Persona 3 has a much darker feel in it, persona 4 is more colorful and light feel in it.
Two mildly serious shows get their wackier content animated. Lots of shenanigans and romantic tension.
