Synopsis

On the surface, SEES—the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad—is a completely normal club at Gekkoukan High School. In reality, they are a group of students who investigate a phenomenon known as the "Dark Hour" and eliminate beings known as "Shadows." Only select individuals with "potential" can remember the occurrence of the Dark Hour while others will "transmogrify" into coffins and become susceptible to Apathy Syndrome—a condition that puts its victims in a trance-like state and causes them to lose their will to live.

Transfer student Minato Arisato is one such individual who can remember the events that occur during the Dark Hour, even though he is not aware of his ability. The moment he arrives at the school, he meets a mysterious person who asks him to sign a contract saying he will take responsibility for his own actions. Afterward, he is confronted by the members of SEES, who place him under secret surveillance because they believe he possesses a potential far greater than any of the other members.

One night, Minato is abruptly awakened by Yukari Takeba when a Shadow comes to attack their dormitory during the Dark Hour. Feeling compelled to fight the Shadow, he picks up Yukari's gun but, instead of shooting the Shadow, he turns it on himself, awakening his "Persona." Equipped with his newfound powers, Minato joins SEES to uncover the mystery behind the mysterious phenomenon.

I've never played the PS2 game before but I swear, thanks to this manga I'm just about to jump out of my chair and go buy a ps2 just to play this game.
The story is by-far very original to me, the art is absolutely fabulous. So fabulous i'm completely awe-struck. I seriously am hardcore loving the art, the characters are all so handsome and, though this is quite shallow, i love mangas with beautiful people.

The characters all have their individual personalities, but there are some depth in certain characters like how their first impression make you think, 'oh well he's obviously going to be read more

Loved the game for ps2 and defenitely love this manga too! The characters or art might be not the best but the storyline is outstanding, played the game for 180 hours, finished it 2 times and still want more :$
Same goes for manga, though it's not full released yet, but this is one manga I'd recommend reading! You may find the beggining 'strange' but you'll kick in and even might get 'addicted' ^^

Persona 3 is probably still my favorite video game of all time, since I first played it back in 2012. When I first heard it was being adapted into a film series, I was essentially a typical excited fanboy. But when I watched the movies, they left me disappointed with the final products. Fast forward to a couple years, I heard that the manga series that had been releasing in Japan were finally being localized to North America. I kept my expectations low at this point for obvious reasons, and thank the lord that I did. Because this manga series just blew my expectations out read more
