Following on from the action packed second volume, with Naotos addition to the team, we now have our investigation team complete and ready to take on the murderer and solve the mystery that plagues Inaba.
Contains Episodes 18-26 Format: DVD/Blu Ray Audio: English/Japanese Subtitles: English Region: 2(DVD), B (Blu Ray)
In contrast to the previous volume, this boxset starts off with an emotional family episode with Dojima and Nanako taking center stage, with Yu caught in the middle but ready and willing to help out his cousin and uncle. There's a lot to love here with the first few episodes taking a more relaxed turn, with a School festival focused episode, and an episode focused on Yukikos Amagi Inn.
Retained throughout the series is the sense of friendship and bonds between the characters, as well as the social link stuff that has made this show very enjoyable to watch.
This is one of the most enjoyable aspects of this series, even when things are looking dark and gloomy, these characters always manage to pull together and can overcome anything thrown at them, no matter how hard it is emotionally and physically.
As this series moves into the final stages of its story. The investigation teams efforts to rescue people from the Midnight channel have not gone unnoticed. As Yu Narukami receives a threatening letter warning him against rescuing more people, and if he doesn't, someone close to him will be harmed.
As fans of the games will note, this kicks off a rescue for someone very important to the characters, all of which leads the Investigation team to conclude afterwards who the murderer is once and for all.
With a final showdown to come after a dramatic confrontation, this series takes a very serious tone.
Concluding, the dub and story throughout this show has been fantastic throughout, the characters have remained likable, the story faithful to the games, this has been one videogame adaption that will impress anyone and everyone who watches.
Worth noting that Episode 26 is classed as the true ending, while the series follows the normal route from the games, Episode 26(Which is an extended length episode) follows the events of the true end path of the game.
I look forward to the Persona 3 movie series that starts at the end of the year in Japan, hopefully we'l get these here by the end of next year too.
Watched all of these (Vol. 1, 2 & 3) after finishing the game on the Vita. Suitable if you want to get the Persona 4 story in shorter time (10 hours) than trying to finish the game (60+ hours), also you get to meet all the characters and get the true ending that you may not get in one playthrough of this game.
I love it I'm a hard fan to please when it comes to anime but persona 4 :The animation is just amazing. I will defo say to anyone who loves the game to get the dvd and all of the volumes. I say the only down side about the animation is that I wish they would have made more episodes they have missed some great bits out but apart from that its got to be one of the best anime and best RPG I've seen for a very very long time
