As the fall season nears its end, Chidori Yoshino, a member of Strega, abducts Junpei Iori. Meanwhile, Makoto Yuuki and the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES) annihilate the Arcana Hanged Man. Soon after, a mysterious playboy named Ryouji Mochizuki transfers into Gekkoukan High School's Class 2-F.

Supposedly having achieved their goal, the members of SEES believe they are free from the battle that has ruthlessly stolen away the lives of their loved ones. And yet, Tartarus and the Dark Hour continue to exist, undeterred by the extermination of the twelfth Shadow. Distraught by their apparent failure, SEES must cope with their personal struggles and discover whose sake they fight for. As Makoto and Junpei's journeys of self-discovery progress, Ryouji's identity and the reason behind Aegis's hate for him become clear.

COGITO ERGO SUM - I think, therefore I am.

The third installment in the Persona 3 movie tetralogy has a difficult job of juggling multiple moving parts within the story, which is justifiably tough. unfortunately, the pacing of the movie suffers this, especially since it's the shortest movie in the persona 3 movie series. It makes up for the fast pacing by putting a lot of emphasis on the new character of Ryoji, who I'll get to in a second. The movie does end on a cliffhanger, but it isn't a real problem for me, since it only invigorates interest in the 4th movie.

Fortunately, this movie has just been released online.
Unfortunately, it's very likely we will have to wait until October to watch the fourth and final movie: Winter of Rebirth, while it's already released in Japan.

But I'll stop complaining and review this movie.

Story: 8

For an Atlus adaptation from videogame to anime movie, many things must be omitted. Like the other 2 movies, we won't see any Social Link, or supporting characters back story, which isn't a big deal regarding the plot. Though, many things were removed from the main story as well, I can point out that I disliked the way the animators cut off how Junpei read more

This movie is very good, however, if you have played the games and are now watching the movies be prepared to be disappointed by some select decisions made by the director. I will now discuss in spoilers below.

1. They flubbed Junpei and Chidori's relationship and it made the beginning of the movie quite confusing. However it is later reconciled with decent development between the two.

2. This movies pacing is very meh to say the least, it jumps from scene to scene very often with no real flow and it was jarring to watch as a fan of the games. It is very hard to make read more

Fall means the preservation of life and boy does Falling Down both play this up and looks deep into this when talking about the SEES.

So Persona 3 the Movie 3: Falling Down quite early on time skips a bit where SEES are facing off against Strega and having defeated the last of the Shadows, but comes an early plot twist that just changes so much of what SEES were initially doing that it changes the course of many of the core cast.

Makoto's beliefs is struck once again but this time not wanting to keep the Dark Hour and playing hero but having to protect those read more
