Not sure how you can fully adapt Persona 3 into a single movie. It's the same issue I have with that Persona 4 movie adaptation. Still, I'm looking forward to finding out how it will work.

Let's hope that this is a good adaptation and not awful like the Persona 4 one. Though covering a 70 hour game in one movie is a little, well...

So P3 got movie but not TV adaptation, oh well.. still looking forward to it.
When I think about it, the first half of the game has no interesting stuff, maybe it could be done in movie LOL.
What they gonna call MC this time? I don't think they will stick to manga name just like P4 though.

Still wanna watch that Persona 4 movie! Damn lucky Japanese...

LOL What is this I don't even...
Maybe now P3 fans will shut up and understand that P3 was never neglected to begin with. P1 and P2, on the other hand...

P3F is one of my top 3 all-time favorite games, but I have very low expectations for this.

If what I hear is any indicator, too much material for a movie.

Definitely. P4 the animation was a rushed mess, and it was to cours long. This will NOT work.

Wait a minute.
They'll probably change Minato's name and to make things worse Ishida will be his VA. Ugh.

The name change probably happen since the manga is not official, curious to see what name Atlus will choose.
I had never heard the jap ver. of P3, So Ishida is his VA hmmm...
Time to dig JP P3 game & drama CDs.

PS: Deleted the false name dammit

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.
