Anime(ted) Gifs #15 – Persona 3 Spring of Birth

Here are 14 great gifs from Persona 3 Spring of Birth!

Persona 3 was a JRPG video game that released on PlayStation 2 many years ago. It got a re-release on PSP as Persona 3 Portable a short time later. After Persona 4 Golden really took off and got its own anime, the company that owns the franchise decided to make a Persona 3 anime. Instead of making a TV series with a handful of episodes like Persona 4, they decided to make a movie trilogy. The first two already released in theaters, but only the first is available on Blu Ray at this time. The following gifs are all from Persona 3 The Movie #1 Spring of Birth. Yes, that’s a long title!
