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.

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

Persona 3 the Movie 3: Falling Down is the first movie out of the first three that really captured the essence of what made the game so resonating for a lot of people, including myself. "Acknowledge your mortality and embrace your humanity. Do not disregard what you were born to seek merely because it is finite, as its finity is what gives it value." This core idea was explored through our taciturn protagonist, Makoto Yuuki with great finesse and care for his character. Him struggling to understand the significance of bonds in one's life and its clash with his nihilistic outlook, contrasted by his friends' read more

Even though I barely played any of the persona games, I really adore the series. I got interested by Persona Q, decided to check out P3 and P4. One of the better decisions I've made in my life.

After watching the first movie, I was hooked to the story of P3. As a newcomer, I could follow the story, get into the style, get to know the characters etc. The second movie got me even more hyped for the series. Once I realised the movie was released with the English Dub, I had to see it ASAP.

Well honestly, it wasn't bad. But I wouldn't call it 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
