Persona 3 Cake is a Midsummer Knight's Cream Dream

With great power comes great responsibility. How can you sit there in Math class while the world needs saving? Lucky for the cast of Persona 3 they can't leap into action until the Dark Hour, the supernatural 25th hour of the day, freeing them to ignore this nagging sense of duty. This loophole lets the SEES club bum around at cafes, eating cake and cookies without a shred of guilt.

We here at the AmiAmi Blog have no such excuse but we've never let our shame stop us. Onward, to sample Persona 3 collaboration sweets at Patisserie Swallowtail Annex!

Aigis gets a custom cake to go along with her starring role in the new film, Persona 3 The Movie: No. 2, Midsummer Knight's Dream. Aside from the red, yellow and white color scheme it's decorated with her trademark red ribbon and headband modeled on the Antikythera mechanism. The lemon and white chocolate mousse house the lemon puree body for a dynamic taste sensation that even a robot could appreciate.

Nothing like a pistachio ice cream parfait to keep you awake through the Dark Hour! The layers of framboise jelly, granola and kiwi give it as many strata as Tartarus. If it's packed this dense during a half moon, I shudder to think what a Full Moon Operation has in store.

Sharing cookies with the co-workers over games of Persona 4 Arena is a surefire way to boost your Social Links. Of course, the resulting trash talk will undo any good will. But hey, not everyone can be your BFF, right?

If you're living in Japan now's your chance to see the new film on the big screen! Everyone else will have to wait for the inevitable Blu-ray release. At least the 3DS title Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is getting a speedy localization. Fall can't come fast enough!
