Anime Limited Confirms Persona 3: Movie 1 Release Details


It’s been quite awhile since Anime Limited announced that they had licensed the Persona movies for UK Distribution but recently the distributor have unveiled their plans for the first movie in the colleciton; specifically Persona 3: Movie 1 -Spring of Birth.

To start with the film will be released as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack, of which will see the film packaged in Anime Limited’s traditional chipboard artbox packaging and digi-pack disc-holders along with a 36-page booklet, as well as a standard DVD release of the film. Both versions will be in Japanese with English subtitles only (as no English dub was produced for the film) and it’s expected that the discs will feature a small selection of bonus content (such as trailers).

Synopsis: If I told you that there’s more than 24 hours in a day, would you believe me?”

The “Dark Hour”—the time which exists between each day. During those hours, the town stands still, the people are transformed into mere objects, and countless monsters called “Shadows” run rampant through the town.

Only the Personas, beings with special powers, are able to combat these creatures.

Makoto Yuki, a transfer student at Gekkoukan High School, is suddenly awakened with the powers to control a Persona. Yuki is recruited to join other Persona summoners of his school in the “Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad.”

As they continue to investigate the situations surrounding the Dark Hours, they all come face to face with their shocking fate…
