We’re just days away from our release of the first of the four Persona 3 movie releases – see the full unboxing of our Movie #1 release HERE – and there’s no better time than now to tell you about what to expect from our upcoming release of the second movie, Persona 3: Movie #2 Midsummer Knight’s Dream.
A quick reminder that we release the first Persona 3 movie this coming Monday (13th February). This post is specifically focusing on our release of the second movie, due on 13th March.
Synopsis: “I wish it would stay like this every day…” Following his transfer to Gekkoukan Private Academy, Makoto Yuki is suddenly attacked by a strange monster called Shadows and is awakened to a power which allowed him to summon a Persona. Seeing Makoto’s potential, the members of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad approach him to join them in their battle against these creatures. Makoto, initially feeling detached from the situation accepts their invitation indifferently, but as he learned more about the “Dark Hour,” and engaged in many harsh battles, he began feeling a strong bond with his teammates. And so the season turned from spring to summer… the battle was far from over for the SEES team, now joined by a new member, but they all felt a sense of fulfillment even as they faced these abnormal circumstances.
The wheels of fate began to turn… as they were about to learn of the new trials they must face.”
You can watch the trailer for the film below –
NOTE: This trailer will likely feature *SPOILERS* for Persona 3: Movie #1.
WHAT’S IN THIS RELEASE?
As is the case with the first movie, we will be releasing this as a Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD set and as a standard DVD.
The Collector’s Edition set will come packed with a rigid case and inside that will be a digipack to hold the two discs (1 x Blu-ray + 1 x DVD) along with a 36-page booklet.
Once again we’ll note that there is no English language audio for any of the Persona 3 films – no English dub was created – so each of these film including Movie #2 Midsummer Knight’s Dream are in Japanese with English subtitles only.
So now here’s a look at our release for you. Check out the visual below –
Inside the booklet are character profiles, Art settings from art boards and key animation, some preview images of the second Persona 3 movie, cast comments and the next instalment of the ‘special Persona 3 Movie Edition of ‘Tartarus Theatre’ – 4-panel comic. If that wasn’t enough following on from the interview featured in the booklet of our Movie #1 release, there’s a roundtable discussion interview with Jun Kumagai (Screenplay), Tomohisa Taguchi (Series Director, Persona 3 Movie 2 director) and Kazunori Adachi (Producer) focusing on this second Persona3 movie.
