Holy shitttttttt. I have literally just reached the end of this game and this will fill the void in my heart. Ahhhhh I have been thinking about how awesome an anime adaptation would be but was like 'lol never gonna happen' sasdsfdsfds!!

F*ck yeah, this just made my day; P4's one of my favourite JRPGs! "Beary" awesome news indeed. /lame pun

Here's hoping that if that if this does well, P3'll get an anime adaptation too (And no, P:TS doesn't count. P4 made it non-canon anyway).

Huh, I just noticed that they announced this around when P4 actually started in game (I think it was two days after this but still). Wonder if that was intentional?

What needs to happen is they need to ignore the shitty manga, use animation to make the scenes that were hindered by outdated game engine better, and pull off turning a silent protagonist into a normal character.

If they do those three things the anime will be so good. I hope it's not some 13 episode shit.

I spazzed out. So which studio exactly is making this? Bones is my top pick, or ufotable. Either of those two would be awesome.

It's not, and you should. P:TS was slow and boring, while P4's funnier and goes by more quickly (...but the pacing's still kind of slow if you ignore the S-Links).

Speaking of which, I wonder how they're going to pace the story anyway and fit all the socials links in. Oh well, I'll worry about that when it airs~

Saw this a while back, couldn't verify if it was gonna be Anime or not so didn't bother posting without being sure.

Glad to know there will be, never got to play P4 since my PS2... disappeared. Hopefully it will be better than Trinity Soul.

I'm extremely concerned if it will turn out okay. But if there's one cast of characters from a RPG I wanted to see put into an anime, it's the Persona 4 crew.

So this is going to be an actual adaptation of P4 instead of some stupid spinoff like Trinity Souls? I'm in. Although I was hoping it'd be another studio doing it.

For once this is gonna be weird hearing the original voices since I played the dubbed version (twice ^_^), maybe it's time for a 3rd play-through undubbed.

I seriously thought the teaser was for P4P until I saw this.

Anyway, it's great news. Moreso if it is indeed a direct adaptation of the game rather than how Persona Trinity Soul was to P3.
