Considering the fact that this is actually my first review on here,don't be so harsh,'kay?
Well,since I am Persona geek and there are no things which are unknown to me,I had a HUGE HYPE about this manga.To be honest,Persona 4 is more character-driven than story-driven installment and this manga proves that the best.
P4 Arena was a huge BOOM when it was announced and just like everyone else who loves Persona I couldn't wait to lay my fingers on it.It had a story and everything in the game was done excellently,but the biggest problem is the very existence of this manga.
To start with ,story resolves around Mitsuru's
newly found organisation called ''Shadow Operatives'' and the Mayonaka Channel which's on air again,but this time it's way too much different than before.It airs very weird announcement of fighting tournament related to P4 squad.
Now about the manga.First chapter was promising and it followed game's storyline in different,but in a way,better manner.The rest is not worth of mentioning.
Everyone who played the game knows that Yosuke is the least important character in the roster,but here...he's like main character.Yu and the others,besides Misturu and Rise(even though I can't stand her),seem to be irrelevant.
Characterisation was bad,bad to the bits that it pains.Everyone was done so badly that only Mitsuru makes it out like a winner from this charade of poorly written characters.
Ending was so anti-climatic,so my suggestion is to STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAPPY MANGA WHICH WILL RUIN YOUR EVENING.
