Persona 3 The Movie #2 – A Midsummer Knight’s Dream 10th Anniversary Review
Our Thanksgiving bonus series from Japanimation Station continues!
Welcome to a special Thanksgiving week bonus episode of Japanimation Station, an anime podcast brought to you by the folks at The Weekly Stuff Podcast. We are here to dive into the wide and wonderful world of anime, and you can subscribe on all platforms at JapanimationStation.Com.
This week marks the 10th anniversary of the first movie based on Persona 3, a game that is one of our all-time favorites here at Japanimation Station. We reviewed each of those films as they released over on The Weekly Stuff Podcast, and hold them in extremely high regard as some of the greatest video game adaptations of all time, in any medium – and an undeniably great work of anime. So this week, as a special Thanksgiving bonus, we’re bringing back our original Persona 3 movie reviews, re-edited and remastered, for Japanimation Station.
That continues today with the second film, A Midsummer Knight’s Dream! This conversation was originally recorded on April 11th, 2015, and the movie left us absolutely shaken, both by its pitch-perfect delivery of one of the most devastating moments from the original game, and by the incredible animation and direction throughout. If the first film was surprisingly great, this is where the Persona 3 film series starts to play its hand as a true anime masterpiece.
Enjoy, and come back tomorrow for our review of the third Persona 3 movie, Falling Down!
