HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
For a second there, I thought I died and gone to heaven.
That's just...weird. Making an anime based on the game 3 years later? I'm still cautiously optimistic considering how bad the previous Persona anime was
What Fudge said, save for the last part.
This will be the first Persona anime I've watched.
I wanted to make this thread. ;w;
But anyway, since the anime is being produced by Aniplex it wouldn't surprise me at all if it were going to be animated by A-1 Pictures. Not only does A-1 directly stem from Aniplex, but it also worked on the Trinity Soul anime, and animated the few cut scenes that were in P4. I blow hot and cold with A-1. Sometimes their series are aesthetically pleasing (Fractale, Sora-no-Woto), and other times they're filled with QUALITY and actually unbearable to look at (Togainu no Chi, Kuroshitsuji). Here's hoping that if A-1 are working on it, then they'll do a decent enough job of it, with at least twenty episodes...
Mixed reactions much guys?
Never watched a Persona anime before. I'll give it a shot.
And then I suddenly remembered that squeaky Rise voice.
I heard bad feedbacks from the last Persona anime. I'll be setting my expectations low for this show.
OH SHI- Cant wait to see Adachi my bro.
Although, I simply adore Persona 4 it would've been cool had they started out with Persona 3.
Screw Persona 3. That game has been milked to death. Although if they made a spin-off of the FeMC...
I don't know how to feel about this.
I never finished Valkyria Chronicles anime because I had already played the game and it was boring for me to watch it.
Well Persona 4 is tons of times better than Valkyria Chronicles but the freedom the game provides in terms of social links and romance cannot be included in a anime version...
The rumors I've heard it's that it's Shaft that will be doing it, maybe they'll manage to make a anime adaptation interesting and awesome even for those that already played the game tons of times
What did you say?
I wouldn't mind
But P3 has a cooler way of summoning a Persona compared to P4
Dude, the game was remade twice, it even had a spin-off anime. Persona 4 only had the game.
Wow i feel retarded, but how much time does the timer signify?
Persona 3 was remade so people could have visitors before he died and romance with the males in the cast as a female protagonist.
Well, the fact remains that 4 is getting one and 3 isn't.
And besides, I played all versions of P3 that it's reached ad nauseam.
Countdown is over. Confirmed as a TV anime.
Animation Production will be handled by studio AIC ASTA.
HOLY SHIT YES!!!!
I absolutely love this game! I beat it without a strategy guide and got the perfect ending and wow it just blows my mind that 1 of my favorite rpg/dating sims is getting its own anime!
coincidentally, I just bought a pre owned persona 3 since I've never played it before
omg can't wait for this!
This is going to need a lot of creative freedom to make a decent anime out of. The later persona series are pretty barebones story wise.
Pretty much. Depending on how many episodes, I don't think we'll be seeing S.Links coming into animation, especially knowing which girl MC is gonna bang.
Explored the site. MC ain't no Souji Seta. It's Yu Narukami.
There's a short animated trailer for the anime up at X
Just wait for it to load on the TV. Don't turn the dial at the side.
the tv is just dark, I don't need to do anything? ive been waiting a while here...
I dont know much about persona, other than I started to watch and dropped an anime with this title.. but it is looking good based on the google image search I did. hot female characters and nice designs.
Nah, you don't need to do anything. I guess you could try refreshing the page and see if that helps. If it doesn't, I guess the website may still be laggy or it might be a case of a missing plugin or something.
my plugins are fine, guess it was the websites fault, I reloaded a couple of times and it worked
the game is great, you have to build strong relationships with all the females in order to strengthen their persona's(summoned monster that is the manifestation of the characters true personality) so you can basically have an ending where every girl is in love with you
It's not just girls. And you don't even have to date them. It's all about maxing out the social links, which can actually be difficult unless you follow a strict regime from the game's start.
After hearing the studio that's going to be involved, I'm... anxious. The fandom seems to be feeling the same way. Not feeling the name change either. The brotag will alway be Souji to me. ;_;
Nice to see persona 4 getting some love though. P3 seems to get the spotlight.
"Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, My Bride is a Mermaid) is directing the project at AIC ASTA."
Is this director good?
Angel Beats director directing this?
Dude, you saw a silhouette of a person in the TV?
Firstly, I really don't see the point of remaking a videogame as an anime. Especially one as widely played as P4. The plot really wasn't that great, and only the characters made it worth playing. I mean, it was obvious from the start who the culprit was.
Also, considering that the target audience will be fans, I don't really see the appeal of watching something I've already played.
Up on youtube if the site doesn't load for you, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zT-GpYBUZQc
Ohh man... I'm not really digging the character designs. :/
Looks like the same animation from the game? Then again, it wasn't as good as the one in P3.
I'm so excited for this
it was so not obvious who the true villain was, I hope the anime does a good job obscuring it like it was in the game
and I'm not talking about the murderer
Angel Beats director.....
I don't like the sound of this, I always thought Angel Beats was waay to messy(changing villain every episode or so), unexplained, random and had bad timing with emotional scenes(Playing Baseball... hey Yui I love you...lol you disappeared)...
That was Jun Maeda's fault.
Persona 4 has an excellent story and sense of mystery, it's almost the perfect rpg to turn into an anime.
Wow I wonder if we get to see fayt pay visits to the old guy who shows you how to use cards in between time, that would be bad ass. I really hope they don't change anything in the game, and that they give us the TRUE ending in the anime version.
I wouldn't expect it to be as good as the game. Can't beat that.
About the culprits being obvious -
I'm not too sure if they were. If you luckily got to play P4 before the whole bitches and whores meme began, and were genre savvy enough, then you could certainly guess that Adachi was involved. The bumbling assistant to an officer? Phhht. You could also guess that there was something not quite right with the gas station attendant at the start of the game, but it'd be a stretch considering Souji getting all weird after the handshake and even then it only happens the one time, so it's easily forgotten about. I don't believe that I guessed that Namatame would be involved somehow.
I love P4 dearly and would regard it as one of my favourite games, but the true end felt way, way, way too tacked on. I'd have preferred it if it was just Adachi and Namatame, instead of dragging in Izanami.
Looks like the X will be updating with trailers every 1 or 2 days (or less interesting features such as turning off the volume for said trailers like yesterday). Latest one is kind of bleh but it features Yukiko.
What the fuck was that?
^ A whole lot of nothing more or less. Hopefully trailers will be better next time.
I would have liked it better if they just made him a bald-face misogynist towards the end, and not have him grief stricken, and to top it off with Ryotaro more or less forgiving him...-.-
The whole Izanami/Izanagi plotline didn't mesh that well in with for me either, just your obligatory hidden-dark-behind-the-scenes-master. And to mesh some mythology into the game as well. Alternative endings have been done much better in other games anyway.
Oh and Kuma can go die...
holf f ing crud, out of all the persona to animate this one is the best....... it was like playing anime
