Which series? There never was a true P3 adaptation.

How could you fit almost 1 year of story in a 1-2 hour movie?

Maybe they'll just animate a certain part of the game. I'd love for it to be like the Drama CDs -> side stories somewhere during the main plot timeframe.

Personally, I'm really HYPED.
And I have my hopes up for a full TV series if the movie proves to be successful!

I hope they change the animation studio and the bloody director.

It can be done. They have to cut a lot of fluff, a lot of plot points, every SLink, but it can be done. But PLEASE put some competent people on it this time!

By cutting out every bit of character development, focusing only on certain bits of the main plot and the MCxYukari relationship (because you know they will), and other such horrible ideas.

Yeah, this is going to be a disaster. Oh well.

This'll probably go Unlimited Blade Works route, meaning they'll only animate the biggest scenes and it'll make no sense to anyone who hasn't played the game.

OH GOD YESSS.....

*sees that its just a movie, not movie series*

well...fuck. They will rape another awesome franchise it seems.

Why could we NOT get a series of 5 or 6 movies, ala KNK?....

Movie adaptations of games generally suck. I don't have high hopes for this...

T.v. would have been way better.

Agreed, I would've loved to have seen a P3 TV anime series rather than a movie.

I don't care how much this sucks, I will love the fuck out of it just for Aegis.
But if they change Minato's name I will cry.

If they were to make it, it would have to be at least 3 hours in order to make it work. If it's only 90-120 minutes, it's not going to be as faithful to the source material.

I'm not that worried about faithfulness, because P4 was really faithful but was a major trainwreck. I just wanted it to work as a movie but it will probably be as lame as UBW.

Persona 3 in one movie? I'd say.. wtf, even the story isn't as twisted as Persona 4 but the story is pretty long, and it consists of two parts: The Journey and The Answer.

It will be suck if the movie only covers The Journey because the revelation of The Journey's ending is in The Answer, which surely will make u dry in tears

Hate to burst bubbles, but they more than likely will change the protagonist's name. He really doesn't have an "official" name- Atlus isn't associated with the manga, which is why they named the P4 protagonist Yu instead of Souji.

They could at least choose a nice name, because Yu Narukami is one of the lamest names ever. I still call him MC just because I scorn this name.

According to viewers of the initial theatrical airing of PERSONA4 the Animation -the Factor of Hope-, which began today, June 9, 2012, there was an announcement for an animation movie adaptation of Persona 3 made at the end of the movie.

Source: tweets by viewers, explained in English on Crunchyroll


That's good, but a tv adaptation would be better...
Still I'll enjoy seeing P3's characters animated.

Well this is really great news for P3's fan since this is pretty much confirmed now.

But the bad news is that according to the P3M official twitter, the movie production has not even entered the first stage. All they did was the confirmation of the movie's production.

So we probably have to wait a little longer (probably the end of 2013) for the movie to be released in theaters.

I have mixed feelings about this. I'd want it to be good since I *love* both P3 and P4.

But considering how P4A was (to quote another poster) "faithful to the original game, but an absolute train wreck", I don't expect the P3 movie to fare any better. I'll still watch it at any rate.

Still, it would be nice for Persona 5 to finally see the light of day instead of pimping out P3 and P4 so much.

The pimping bit is actually, in a large part, to create a wave of anticipation for the Persona series. It'd be foolish of them not to follow Golden and Arena (as well as the P1 and P2 Ports) with a timely Persona 5 game. But all that in time.

Persona 3 Movie?? i feel like crying because i cant speak japanese. Story wise, persona 3 got a hell lot better stories than Persona 4. Persona 4 is like a bit more little shocking development.

Maybe this time I'll be able to finish the damned story (had two 70 hour attempts, both failing due to loss of interest after a certain 'I'M RLY EVIL, MUHAHAHA' twist where the story shows itself to be poopy).
