AniTAY Movie Weekend - Persona 3: The Movie 1 & 2

Hey everyone, tonight and tomorrow on the 20th and 21st of November we will be watching the first two Persona 3 films! We each simultaneously watch our own video at home (make sure you have it ready for yourself, we do not stream over Skype), while commenting on the movie together in a Skype chatroom here: Anyone and everyone is welcome to jump in and watch this wonderful adaption with us~.

We will be hitting play at 9PM EST on Friday for Part 1: Spring of Birth, and 10PM EST on Saturday for Part 2: Midsummer Knight’s Dream. Since only Part 2 is available on Netflix to stream, and the only other option is paying $60 for imports, I have some extra sources on hand if needed...

In the spring, male student Makoto Yūki transfers to Gekkōkan High School. However, as he heads to his new dormitory, listening to the music on his headphones, he is stopped. More precisely, time has stopped, and the people who were around him turn into coffins. Makoto learns that this period of time hidden between the minute of midnight is called the Dark Hour, a time when monsters called Shadows appear. Suddenly made the leader of his fellow classmates Yukari and Junpei by his upperclassmen Mitsuru and Akihiko, Makoto must learn empathy, his connection to his comrades, and the meaning of death. With the power of his Evoker aimed at his head, Makoto fights against the Shadows threatening to attack his world from the mysterious tower of Tartarus. -ANN

After realizing the value of life and the importance of his own allies, Makoto finally got his smile back. As spring turns into summer, he finds himself learning more about those comrades and getting closer to them. He even meets new friends, including Aegis, an anti-Shadow android, Ken, a grade-schooler who seeks to get revenge for his late mother, and Koromaru, a dog who can use a Persona. Makoto wishes that everything will continue just as they are. However, little by little, the pieces and people in Makoto’s new, happy life begin to fall apart, and he is forced to suffer the loss that comes with it. -ANN
