Spring. Far from the city, time flows peacefully in this rural town. As the cherry blossoms scatter in the wind, a young man named Yu Narukami steps off the train at Yasoinaba Station.

The shopping mall after school. A series of murders taking place in town. The Midnight Channel, airing late at night.... What lies in store for Yu and his friends ‘this time around?

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 word for P4 The Golden, "DISAPPOINTING!!!"

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

Persona 4 Golden seems a bit intimidating to watch at first. Based off of a highly popular game for Playstation Vita, there may be high expectations when it comes to adaptation. And why shouldn’t there be? The franchise is already popular and the concept of Persona itself should be enough to hit a few chords. The only catch is that Persona 4 Golden isn’t necessarily a sequel or spinoff. Instead, it’s a remake of the original series with the addition of a new character. Rebounding back with the story of the original series, Persona 4 Golden is far from a golden egg.

Watch Episodes 6 & 7, Persona fans! As for the rest, well, my (first) review.

The Golden Animation, simply put, is all the scenes from the updated rerelease from the game, animated and stretched out a bit.

As opposed to the strange combination of social life, school days, and vigilante-Shadow-fighting-crime-solving that was Persona 4, Golden, when taken at face value, comes off as a typical Slice-of-Life with a mystery sub-plot that isn't even explained well. Which is admittedly understandable, though it doesn't improve the series.

Our returning characters have their previously established relationships hinted at, as with their slightly more complex personalities, but they're mostly shoved to the read more

Anime: Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
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.

Anime: Steins;Gate
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!!

Anime: Persona 3 the Movie 1: Spring of Birth
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.
