These P3 movies are clearly not meant for people who haven't played the game, everything is so rushed and they skipped a lot of stuff, I just hope they don't fuck up the final boss build-up and battle like they did with P4's final boss, that's all I'm asking for.

There was hardly any build up in P4. The final boss comes out of nowhere. It should have ended with them catching the killer.

I don't think this is a place to discuss P4's final boss but I'm gonna do it anyway

So good!!!

Ah.....I need to play this game again.....it's just.....awesome.

Anyway, I still think they are doing great on the adaptation on a 100+ hour game.
Of course they will miss some stuff from the game (kinda wanted to see the part where they were in the onsen and the girls walked in) but whatever.

9/10 for me.

Part of what makes this movies just okay are the fact that the fight's over way too quickly. There's no sense of them really putting effort when every fight end really quickly.

Persona 3 is one of those games were it actually is draining to fight against the bosses and you get sense of accomplishment for beating them.

And if they are not going to have the social links be part of the movies in any relevant way then they shouldn't even give us those stills. Shoddy fanservice.

I was wondering what was up with the first 40 mins of the movie being so lame and generic, didn't realize it was a different studio from the first part. I didn't see any need or place for a random start to the movie with a love hotel-ish dark hour and an incredibly random beach arc. At the very least,the festival served some sort of purpose to display the relationship between Shinji and Ken whereas the beach scene wasn't necessary to introduce Aegis. Felt like I was watching some school rom anime or something. I have no idea if that was all in the games or not but it was just so random to have all that considering the first movie was more modest and to the point than this one was.

I know its a movie series based on a game, but even for a movie series that has to work with fitting a lot of content i felt the introduction of so many characters that effectively doubled the ranks was a bit eh. The dog and the robot felt more like empty characters just to make the plot easier to explain in a movie format...i also didn't feel much for the boy, I mean, at this point we have 2 other characters now whose parents died and that seems to have a massive effect on the way they progress plot wise. So adding another character into that pool I guess just dulled the effect on me for some reason.

I gotta blame the studio switching for this one tho, Yuuki's personality just changed too much in between movies to be fluid enough for a movie series, it just seemed like i missed an ass load of something plot wise and it bugged me the whole movie. I know that the last battle in the 1st movie helped to curve his personality, but apparently it changed it on a drastic level. Though when the first time in the 2nd movie the calender displays, it doesn't seem like that much time actually passed, I think the 1st movie ends and the 2nd one both start in the same month...

Im just going to chalk it up to another studio doing it, but this one imo is highly disappointing compared to the 1st movie.

Loved how they focused on Shinjiro in this episode. I never liked that guy in the game for his attitude and usefulness, and I never missed his death when it happened. Even in FeMC playthrough my opinion didn't change.

But man, I start to like that dude because of this episode. He's a really nice guy... :'(

Aigis looking at Shinjiro was epic. XD

Its a pity Shinji had to die because he was an interesting character to watch. Now who was that at the end of the credits? Now i will have to watch the 3rd one ho exciting, because the shadows and the dark hour are still not done yet.

I found this movie to be a vast improvement from the first one. It's fun, stuff gets explained for once, the characters had better interactions, and the Persona combat wasn't boring and repetitive this time. I guess that it's because of the story finally picking up after a slow start but I liked it, pretty jarring fanservice in the beginning aside.

The new members of the team are quite unique and they're awesome. A kid, a tsundere badboy, a dog, and even a robot! Not to mention Shadow Jesus and his pyromaniac buddy and lovely self-cutting maid.

Aragaki was a pretty rough character on the inside but he's really cool when he shows his caring side. It's very unfortunate that his Persona's too strong to control, leading to the accidental death of Amada's mom and his eventual drug-addled downward spiral as a person who was once able to respect himself. He did the ultimate redemption by catching the bullets fired at Amada twice. The kid's definitely too young to give up on life now no matter the circumstances so it's good that Aragaki showed him the value of his own life before going to the other side.

Oh man, the feels ;_; It was an amazing movie!

Love Aigis fighting those shadows, she was so cool! And Koromaru was unnexpected... Never knew animals could have a persona as well, which I find very exciting and amazing :3

R.I.P Aragaki. You were a warrior even with your the out of control Persona.
