At the stroke of midnight, the Dark Hour appears—a secret hour which most are unaware of. Those not trapped in coffins during this time, unfortunate enough to find themselves conscious, are met by dangerous creatures known as Shadows. A select few, however, possess the potential to wield Persona: a special power used to defeat these beings. This secret group is called SEES (Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad), and their mission is to uncover the reason behind the Dark Hour's appearance. Only a short while after transfer student Makoto Yuuki begins his residency at Iwatodai Dorm, his Persona awakens after an attack by a strong Shadow. Now recruited into the ranks of SEES, he begins fighting alongside his comrades, as only they can protect humanity from Shadows and prevent the anomaly that is the Dark Hour.

ED1: “More Than One Heart” by Yumi Kawamura
May lack the depth of its source material, but still encapsulates its heart, atmosphere and message, while telling a compelling story.
I love these movies, just like I love the P4 anime. I’ll say the same thing I said there. Play the game if you can, its better.
Let’s skip to iconic cool stuff and forget about mythos or characterization.
BURN MY DREAD
Makoto was characterized perfectly. Beautiful animation paired with a great soundtrack makes for a gorgeous movie.
Needs more FeMC.
