Persona 4 Chapter 12 Excitement!

Wow it’s been a crazy week, what with all the Carnival Phantasm madness coming out, a lot of purty mangas getting translated, which includes chapters 11 and 12 of the Persona 4! It’s been quite some time since I last read a chapter of P4 since it has a sporadic release schedule and all that jazz. But these 2 chapters reminded me why I fell in love with this series in the first place.

Brojima gives Nanako a Junes shirt, with a platypus….duck…thing. NANAKO LOVES IT!

Mostly it was just chapter 12 that got me really fired up for obvious reasons (I love seeing the family scenes in manga form and I really liked the ending to it). Since they were just coming off of the first dungeon in the story everything was very laid back, aside from the usual Dojima issues and yadayada, so it was a very nice breath of fresh air from the chapters that were heavy on combat (even though those are still great too). Maybe I’m just a sucker for Nanako chapters, who knows. I also really liked the way this chapter looked, a lot of the scenery and angles they used fit very well with the scenes and they were just nice to look at.


Ah yes, the only reason why I’m even talking about this chapter right now. NAOTO SHIROGANE IS FINALLY INTRODUCED IN THIS MANGA @#$#!%@%^%%!! Phew. Now if you haven’t already guessed it, this is by far the best thing that has happened to me the entire week, seriously. Totally didn’t see it coming, and I’m glad I didn’t cuz I screamed at the top of my lungs when I saw this page and then I punched a few rocks and went on a rampage of awesome. And as soon as the PV for Naoto comes out, you probably won’t ever hear from me again. But yeah, EXCITEMENT!

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 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

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.
