This is great. My second favorite one player game, after Final Fantasy X. I have high hopes for this adaptation. Even though, interactive stories, such as games, always seem better than they actually are.

YAAAYYYY! My dream has come true! I'm currently playing this awesome game and if the story, characters and their personalities will be the same as in the game then I can already give it 10/10

I've played the game for PSP a bit. and its pretty good so im definitely in for this.


P4 wasn't on PSP.
Must be confusing it with Persona 3 Portable. The mood of those two games are light day and night.

This I must watch. I was waiting.
Just hoping it doesn't get trashed and bulldozed like that supposed Persona 3 anime.

Eh, really am indifferent to persona 4.


Hopefully this adaptation will not be messed up and hopefully it will lead into them faithfully adapting Pesona 3.


A faithful adaptation to Persona 3? I thought me getting Mitsuru animated would be epic enough, but if I got what you suggested. I don't think my body will be ready for that. :P

This I might actually watch. The manga - as far as I know - has only been translated as far as volume two, and I loved the game enough to put 100+ hours in AND watch the GB ER. Chie should make it awesome.

I'll be interested to see how the silent lead is handled.

Why the hell is his name Yu?

Souji Seta sounds so much awesomer.

Now I can see Rise and older Chihiro.
