Persona 4 Anime Confirmed!


Yes it’s true! About a day or 2 ago, Aniplex released a teaser site for a supposed “Persona 4 Animation” over at mayonaka-tv.jp(at the moment they’re showing the PV for the show so go check it out!) and earlier today they confirmed it and an official site has been made along with a list of the cast and crew at p4a.jp.

The director is listed as Seiji Kishi who is most notably the director of Angel Beats!, Seto no Hanayome, and Tentai Senshi Sunred, and with the studio AIC A.S.T.A.(Bamboo Blade,Sora no Otoshimono) and apparently changing the main character’s name to Yu Narukami this is starting to sound even more awesome than I originally thought.

The music is being done by Shoji Meguro who did the music for both P3 and P4.

And the casting is as followed:
Yu Narukami – Daisuke Namikawa
Yosuke Hanamura – Showtaro Morikubo
Chie Satonaka – Yui Horie
Yukiko Amagi – Ami Koshimizu

Hope everyone’s got their glasses ready!

Still waiting on that Naoto……………..Still waiting…

Update: In case you can’t get the site to load, someone was kinda enough to upload the PV on youtube.
