This is just the thing to get me to watch a season of anime again.

As I'm sure most of you have noticed, I'm a HUGE fan of the Persona series and this development has me BEARy excited. Hopefully it won't be as lame as Trinity Soul, but if it focuses on P4's story it should be really good. So, anyone else excited for this?

YES.

Time to play P4, I guess.
All we need now is P4P.

It's official.

The site is slow as balls right now. I'm sure it's getting lots of traffic at once.

I was joking with SSD about that this morning.

I wonder if they're just going to have the 4 big characters or if they'll introduce Kanji, Rise, and Naoto later. At the very least it'll have awesome music since Meguro's composing (who else would?). Also, this anime is going to piss the shippers off.

"Oh! Oh! I fit the bill."

Coincidentally, I was listening to the P4 theme when I first read someone's blog post with this information. So stoked.

TRIAL OF THE DRAGONNNNNNNNN.

There's another countdown. Wonder what it is. The OP maybe? More characters? A release date? P4P?

Wait a minute, MC has an official name now? But what's going to happen to my choice for a name?

Miles Blast > Yu Narukami. It also > Seta Souji, but who gives a damn about the mangaverse.

No, no, I'm much more handsome.

So it was just the same trailer?

Yup, looks like it.
Kinda disappointing, I expected more.

Must not have been raining. I confess, I forgot to check the weather forecast today.

Did you (or anybody out here) have the same reaction as the guy in the video :)

I guess the game must have been very good to have so many passionate and expecting fans....

Brotagonist (P4 protagonist) is a pretty cool dude, but MC (Minato) and FemC of P3P have already captured my heart (so to speak).

That said, BEARY EXCITE about this. I really hope the video game actors for the Japanese and English versions can reprise their roles for consistency's sake. Need to finish my P4 youtube-watching. And I hope to see a release of P4P so I can play it since I'm PS2-less.

Very nice touch of the video counting down to midnight (heh Midnight Channel) on the day Brotagonist arrives in town.

So basically what happens is the trailer is available at midnight, Japan time, for a few hours. It's supposed to be like you're actually watching the midnight channel I guess.
