[AOW] Persona 4: The Golden (8/31-9/6/2014)

[Previous AOWs][Akia's MyAnimeList][Akia on Facebook]

No need for me to front with you, but when I first heard that P4: The Golden was getting the anime treatment like Persona 4 did... I was a bit wary. I didn't really like the animation style of the first anime (I mean look at this picture, everyone seems to have some form of a 5 o'clock shadow >.>while this looked cool in the game yet much more unnoticeable, on screen in anime format this made the coloring look awkward on the eyes much like how in Gankutsuou the weird photo shop layers took some time to get used to). So far I am relieved to say it has been much easier on the eyes!
