Persona 4 The Golden Animation
Another anime adaption from a well-known game in Japan. I won’t fall for it this time. I probably won’t even bother watching this stuff. My problem with the Persona series is that they always start off strong (although pretty much the same). They start good but become rather dull and uninteresting after a couple of episodes.
The story is a problem for me. It usually starts off like any other Persona anime and becomes, just like any other Persona anime, rather dull and uninteresting because the pattern never changes. That is why I usually stop watching after the fourth or fifth episode.
I will play it safe and recommend this only to Persona fans. I cannot see myself watching more than three or four episodes of this before I’m tired of it. It’s the same old thing under a different name and wearing a different jacket.
