Anime Review: Persona: Trinity Soul, Part 1

The first half of Persona: Trinity Soul is wonderfully atmospheric, but very little actually happens.

Persona 3 has an anime based on it?! Holy crap, must watch. Now!

Sounds a little like .Hack series...plenty of talkimng, and dialoue, but, action is a little thin on the ground at times.

Not, that its a bad thing

As a -huge- fan of Persona 3, I'd just like to go on record saying that I heard a lot of people comment about how terrible this series was, especially in comparison to the games.

I've played persona 3 ever since 2007. I've heard of this anime for a really long time, but never got around to watching it. probably I should start soon.

Well, that's disappointing. Still, I'll be bold and give it a go. Unless you mean terrible in a way that even corrupts the game? In that case, I'll steer way clear.

I started watching it and just couldn't get into it, it was okay but really nothing great. I'll just stick to the Persona games or look up Jojo's Bizarre adventure which sounds pretty damn good.

I loved Persona 3, but after watching the first 10 or so episodes I don't see how the 2 are even related. Seriously, if they renamed the Persona's the summon in the anime something else there would be no linking them at all. There are no shadows and the Persona summoned aren't even close to how they are in the game.

This just seems to be a bland anime trying to cash in on the Persona name, not worth watching imo.

i personally like this however i wish it would get dubbed

it takes place 10 years after P3 in a alternate universe of said world. That's how its related.
the thing that gets me is that it isn't dubbed into english. Also at the end of P3 didn't you destroy all the shadows i don't remember been to long since i beat it.

I couldn't watch ten eps, I got so bored so fast, it was unreal.

for those who liked Persona 3, might enjoy this one. I found it to be a little bit slow in it's uptake, but i continued to watch it. I found the intrigue that was built into the plot to be kinda interesting ... but that's just me. So I say those who like Person 3 will probably enjoy it a bit, not saying they all will ... but o-well.

my recommendation, If your into it's idea, watch it, but i'm thinking not everyone is going to enjoy it.

Apart from Igor, there is nothing linking Persona 3 and Trinity Soul. Persona's aren't summoned by an evoker (p3) or acquired by overcoming one's weakness (p4) so it just doesn't feel the same as the Persona games to me.
Also, I think you destroy the Dark Hour at the end of P3, not the shadows. Shadows and Persona are 2 sides of the same coin after all and shadows still appear in P4, which also takes place in the same universe.

it does have similarities from the first Persona from the way they summon the Persona in which they use a ritual like game to do so.

To be exact they do a ritual called the 'Persona game' that knocks them out and sends them face to face with Philemon. He gives them a challenge and if they succeed, they get the persona power and yes it's the Dark Hour that's destroyed permanently, not the shadows. In order to get rid of shadows, you'd pretty much have to lobotomize the entirety of humanity.

thank you for the correction.

Kept up with this one as it aired. Overall I was underwhelmed but the opening credits are insanely catchy.

Well, consider this. The persona series started using shadows after P3. If you play Persona: Revelations or Persona 2, you'll probably notice that the monsters aren't considered shadows. In fact, they're zombies and fairies and stuff like that. You've kinda gotta accept the Persona series like you would accept the fact that every Final Fantasy sequel is unrelated to the last.

The creators have said that P3 and P4 take place in the same universe, you even visit the school from P3 in the P4 trip and you see the student council girl giving a speech (Not sure about the name atm). She also talks about Mitsuru helping her write the speech, though she doesn't actually say the name. P1/P2 are completely unrelated to P3 and P4 though.
