Sword Art Online Part 2Whoops, this week has been a bit of a burden for me so I’m a little behind. Anyway, as part of the catch up process, here’s the anime releases for this week. It’s pretty much dominated by one series and for many people, that’s the right sort of domination. There’s also a continuation from another series.

So in total that’s 4 releases this week.

Those releases are…

Persona 4 Volume 1
Title: Persona 4: The Animation – Volume 1
Certificate: 12
Format: Blu Ray and DVD

Officially marketed on Amazon as:

When Yu Narukami moves to the country town of Inaba to stay with his uncle and cousin, he’s expecting a lot more peace and quiet than he’s used to in the big city. What he isn’t expecting is for his uncle’s job as a police detective to spill over into his own life, or for the murders that are occurring across town to be somehow linked to Yu’s own strange experiences, odd local weather patterns, and a mysterious TV show world that seems to be attempting to get Yu to enter it! Now, together with a new group of friends, Yu must plunge into a bizarre alternate reality where he gains unique abilities that will either help him solve the riddle of the mystery killer or lead him to his doom.

Certificate: 12
Format: Blu Ray and DVD

The mystery of the murders seems to have been solved, but the riddle of the Velvet Room and the lethal Midnight Channel is an enigma that Yu and the other students who form the Investigation Team have yet to crack. That’s to say nothing of the question of how their powers of Persona work in the first place, and how the fictional Teddie can exist in the real world. As conundrums wrap in conundrums and the school year burns inexorably towards a blistering summer, the team must prepare for the most deadly challenge yet while still pretending to lead normal high school lives. Unfortunately, that won’t be easy under the evil eye of their new homeroom teacher. And when Detective Shirogane reenters the game with new information about irregularities in the police investigation and clues that may lead to an entirely different conclusion, both team and detective find themselves playing the role of prey once more! The body count is on the rise, the Shadows attack and new Persona are about to ascend as the Midnight Channel launches the ultimate cancellation program.
