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

This contains MASSIVE SPOILERS so do not read this review if you have not watch, or played Persona 4.
I recommend to play Persona 4 Golden than watch the anime because it does not give you much information as much as the game and also it may confuse you. Also I gave this a 4 because of the disgusting plot twists and plot holes.

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

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

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.
