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. Yu has come to this town, where his uncle lives, for family reasons; he will be transferring into the local high school, Yasogami High. And so begins his school life... 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?

If you haven't played Persona 4 Golden, this really isn't for you. Even if you have played it, don't expect a full adaptation like the Persona 4 Animation. Think of it more as a compilation of the cutscenes and events from the game.

Overall I give this a 10/10. This isn't because of its merit as a stand-alone series. In that regard it's actually terrible and you would have no idea what's going on if you watched it in a vacuum. I give it a 10/10 because of how well it adapts key scenes from the game- which is probably the goal rather ...

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 ...
