North American fans planning on importing the second Persona 3 anime film can now easily do so thanks to Aniplex.
Pre-order are live for two versions of Persona 3 The Movie 2: Midsummer Knight’s Dream, the standard and collector’s editions at $59.98 and $79.98. The standard includes only the Blu-ray – this release does not seem to feature English subtitles or voice dubs – while the collector’s set:
contains both the director’s cut version and the original theatrical version, and includes newly illustrated cover art, an original soundtrack CD, a 48-page deluxe booklet (with an English translation booklet), 10 Super P3 stickers, and 3 key art illustration cards, all in an art box illustrated by character designer/animation director Keisuke Watabe.
Both versions of the movie come with trailers, commercials and commentary as added features. It releases on March 11th.
No English subtitles mean I’ll probably be skipping this, but this is totally cool for collector’s who’ll want to avoid paying a huge markup on eBay for this stuff.
