As one of the resident Persona fanatics and cosplayers, I cannot express how overjoyed I was to awaken today, April 11th 2011 (the first day of P4) to find this story on Anime News Network and subsequently the trailer on Youtube.

Given how indepth the game's storyline is (I believe it is contender for the highest amount of voice acting hours in all of gaming... and that's impressive seeings as the main character only grunts and calls his attacks) there are bound to but cuts and changes to the storyline. There's yet to be an announcement on when the anime starts airing (though I imagine the fall anime block is not out of the question) or how many episodes it would be.

I'm enthused. If only for the characters, Persona 4 has the best storyline I've ever played through in a videogame and it would be beautiful to see it unfold in anime form, regardless of cuts and changes... and here's hoping they gather Johnny Young Bosch, Troy Baker, Yuri Yowenthal and the others back for the inevitable dub.

Also, if the news of an upcoming animation wets your appetite for P4, do not fret, today being Persona 4 day and all, the internet is jumping with references and treats for fans. Check out this fanmade comic which intends to update every single day with the corresponding ingame events.

Tis a good time to be an Atlus fan.

(PS: As a P3/Strega lover, I demand that the trip to Gekkokan High remain in the anime! They'd never deprive the fans of King's Game. Would they!? WOULD THEY!?)

definitely something to be excited over, but I might need to be a bit apprehensive since most game adaptations SUCK. They are going to have to cut stuff and paraphrase a LOT of the dungeon crawling and fighting.

OMG. I want. Nao. Gimme. <3 I just watched the trailer with my friend (we're both Persona fans) and it looks like it's going to be amazing and, hopefully, follow the storyline. (Trinity Soul comes to mind, and it makes us cry...a lot.)

Ha, that's what I thought when I first saw that. XDD Some other anime...Final Fantasy...something, had a character named Yu. And I think the other one was Ai.

Oooh good point!! I don't know what Naru is in Japanese but in Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok, the god Thor was named Narugami and Loki teasingly called him Narukami for god. And his first persona WAS Izanagi.

Possible spoiler! Maybe.

I think its interesting that his new name is Narukami, his persona was Izanagi and the god was Izanami. Looking on wiki~

Izanami-no-Mikoto, meaning "she who invites" is a goddess of both creation and death, as well as the former wife of the god Izanagi-no-Mikoto. She is also referred to as Izanami-no-kami. Crazy connections?? I wonder if the anime is going to play on the whole Japanese gods theme.

I though a few of the Resident Evil games and Silent Hill was decent? Especially the latter game.

So not all video game adaptations suck; just Trinity Soul from the looks of things.

You should be able to boot up your old file, go back a little bit and get the true ending. Most of that is determined at the end of the game.

Oh do it do it do it! :D I finished both Persona 3: FES (I still think Aigis was adorable) and P4 with the true ending. I finished Persona 4 in a little over two months. And even though I just finished it I want to play again now. XD

Haven't found 100 hours of your life to spend beating a game?

I did love P3 though. Definitely 100 hours well spent. Thats including the time to beat The Journey and The Answer.

I think we're all used to seeing him as Souji Seta. Though, his new name gives the fandom a chance to troll. XD It even makes the shipping funnier.

For sure. The game had its moment of being downright rude about stuff. If you fall behind early it can be hard to catch up. Especially because while they're low level, the heroes get exhausted so easily...

I had the crappy ending and couldn't go back. There is no place to save after the final area and before you do the things to determine what ending you get. Well there is but I wasn't expecting THAT to happen so I have to fight that one zealot boss all over again and haven't been motivated to do it yet.

Beware though:
Spoiler


Try P3:FES or P3P if you want to play as a girl MC. There are new links and you get to find out more about sempai than you did in the Answer and the Journey. People thought he was gay until P3P :lol:

True ending spoiler internet meme with Adachi and cabbage.

Brosuke is because of Yosuke link and how....questionable it is.

The little girl and big brother Souji are a bit...too close. too close that it's either pervy or really really cute. That's also a meme.

Also Yukiko and those glasses.

Also MC pimping is a meme. You can practically get all the girls in the game and almost all the guys. I wish you could get Yosuke and Kanji. I WOULD SO BUY IT AGAIN FOR THAT.

Curious on what they are going to do with MC pimping or the Brosuke in the anime.

I figured it has something to with the true ending...but uhm, the little sister thing is like P3 with the little girl. (I forgot her name. XD)

Do you know where I stopped in P3? Somewhere before I had the chance to meet Ryoji. So much fail.
