When Naoya Toudou is goaded into playing a childish fortune-telling game called "Persona," the last thing he expected was to summon a girl pleading for help. The girl's wails overwhelm Naoya's senses, leading him to awaken in a strange place that exists between consciousness and unconsciousness where a mysterious entity resides. Introducing themselves as Philemon, they grant him the ability to wield a "Persona"—a being that exists as an "other self"—before he wakes up in the school's infirmary.

Though Naoya's friends also recall meeting the same entity, they think nothing of it as they head to the hospital to see their sick friend, Maki Sonomura. During their visit, Sonomura disappears in the middle of her surgery and the patients within the hospital suddenly become hostile. Cornered, the group members each call forth their Personas, who fend off the rest of the assailants much to their surprise.

Concerned for their friend, the group sets out to find Sonomura all while gathering more information about the ominous situation they are in.

Megami Ibunroku: Persona is based on Atlus' 1996 Playstation video game of the same title (known as Revelations: Persona in the West).

Well, well, weeellll...I'm back again! Bet you didn't expect me to be doing a Manga review now, did you? Well, anyways. Since I've only seen one review of this Manga and it's from someone who hadn't even finished reading it (at least from what they have marked down on their profile, no offense to them at all), I thought I'd give the best possible review without giving away too much. So...I'll try to keep this one spoiler-free cause you people DESERVE to read this manga. On to the review!:

The Story/Narrative [10/10]

So...this is probably immediately where you're going to tell that I really enjoyed the writing read more

This is my first time writing a review (and I’m a pretty simple person, so I don’t usually have very deep/intelligent thoughts on the things I watch and read) so I’m sorry in advance if anything is worded weirdly or if I don’t give enough info.

To start with, I always feel really bad when I think about how Persona 1 and 2 don’t get as much attention as P3-5 do. I understand why that is. Persona 3 was the first Persona game Atlus made that gained popularity in the US. That, and the battle system in P1 is so, so difficult compared to all the read more
