An orphaned teen Makoto Yuuki returns to his home town and transfers to Gekkoukan High where he is attacked by creatures known as Shadows who feed on the minds of their victims. He finds other kids at the school not only know of these creatures, they can summon Personas to fight the Shadows. He joins them and signs a contract with a creepy child to acquire his own Persona and fight Shadows too.
This is an interesting concept even though at times the art style can make the action and combat scenes a little confusing. The volume was a little short to really get into but based on what I’ve seen, I think I would rather watch the anime for the story so I can see this in action. It looks pretty awesome; especially the idea that Makoto shoots himself to summon his Persona. A little emo but hey, his parents just die. He’s entitled.
First off, of all the boxes NOT to come with pens, paper, or notebooks; I never thought this would be it. Don’t get me wrong, I am in love with the bento box, the charms and stuff are cool but seriously? Not a single pen or notebook? Way to miss the theme here, guys…
Other than that, man did my face light up at the sight of that bento box. Utena is one of my favorite franchises and I can’t wait to use it. It’s microwave safe, too! Now I just need some recipes for a box this size (it’s super small) but I’ll try and post what I come up with.
Even without any notebooks or pens (seriously guys?!), this is the first box in awhile I don’t feel the need to sell or give much of this away. I’m not so into Digimon so I’ll pass that on to a bigger fan.
