According to the official website, a stage play of Persona 4 was announced to run from March 15th - 20th in Tokyo. Seiyu Asanuma Shintaro will write and direct the play. Asanuma said, "Directing the Persona 4 play doesn't mean I will play a role in the anime. I wish I could, though."

This.

I wonder how the shadows will look. It seems Persona 4 has got a tremendous popularity recently, first the anime adaptation, then remakes for PS3 and Vita, and now live shows? I don't really care since new soundtrack is always welcome anyway (especially if from Shoji).

I'm wondering what train of thought led to a stage play of Persona 4. Hopefully it was a good one.

Not a single Japanese can come close to Yosuke's epicness.

I don't really get what's so fantastic about Persona 4. I've seen up to episode 3 and I have to say that I don't really mind if I continue or not. I don't get why there's such a big fandom for it, but maybe it's because the anime's bad and the game is good, I don't know.

^First of all, the game is way better. Call it irony, but its pace is way slower than the tv series'.
Second, such a big fandom? On what are you basing this? Because as far as games are concerned, it does indeed have a faithful fandom but it is not as big as you claim it is. And if you're talking about the tv series, it received major hype, but it is not like it has such a big fandom.
Another thing: there are many times in which something isn't fantastic but it has a big fandom.
And in the end, what is fantastic anyways?

Well, what I mean is, try to think of the product as a whole before talking about big fandom and things like that.
