Persona: Trinity Soul

Persona Trinity SoulPersona: Trinity Soul is an occult anime TV series which is also a part of the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series. The anime is a non-canonical take of the Playstation 2 game Persona III in which the series’ events starts 10 years after the game’s events. The story starts with Shin Kanzato, along with his younger brother Jun, moving back to Ayanagi, their hometown, to see their older brother Ryou Kanzato who is now the superintendent of Ayanagi’s City Polic Force. It has been ten years since a disaster severed Ayanagi City and when the siblings saw each other.

Basically, in the world of Persona, some people are gifted with the ability to summon an entity from inside them which can combat other opposing personas. These personas are basically another representation of themselves. They appear in various forms and often wield weapons and have other supernatural ability. The plot revolves around people suffering apathy syndrome, a mysterious disease which puts people in a somewhat catatonic state, and is being investigated by the police.

The anime is a good watch however if you are into battle animes like Naruto, Bleach, and or One Piece, you would not be able to appreciate it. Persona: Trinity Soul is a plot driven series and rely less on combat scenarios. It has a number of dramas in it than action. It also has a bit of romance but it is not the focus of the anime. What I did not appreciate though is that there are some parts of the stories which were unexplained like what kind of being is the whale, and why is there a whale. There are a couple of unanswered questions although you can live with it. Watch it and you’ll know what I am talking about.  If you are into occult animes Like Tokyo Majin, XXXholic, you may find Persona: Trinity Blood interesting.
