New Persona 4 anime PV trailer

#1 Edited by metalsnakezero (2342 posts) -

Mostly shows off some new scenes (Or familiar) with day transitions like the game and IGOR!
 

 
Edit: This trailer came from a live broadcast on Nico Nico Douga, which was hosted by Yu Narukami's VA, Daisuke Namikawa. The next broadcast will happen on September 30 and will be hosted by Yosuke Hanamura's VA, Showtaro Morikubo. Also Aniplex also announced on Saturday that it will hold a Persona Music Live concert (pictured right) at the Tokyo International Forum on April 8, 2012. Persona sure does get a lot of concerts.

Igor's freaking out at the end there. 
 
I'm interested in seeing how the battle scenes will end up looking.

I didn't realize until about a week ago Chie is short.

Oh, well if it's going to be preoccupied with dull fight scenes then forget it.

I might have wanted to watch this if it was all about them hanging out in town, but I guess I can see why they didn't do that.

I'm honestly excited for this, and I don't care for anime much. Hopefully someone will will upload the episodes with english subtitles.

Yep, apparently it was possible.

 She's probably pissed about not having a nose.

So is the main guy going to upgrade his persona through the series? Like a Pokemon?

There is 0 chance or indication for that possibility. 
 
Christ, people said the same thing about Kanji and Rise, and I continue to be astonished that people think they're surgically removing a main character.

Yeah, they still have time to pull another trailer showing Shadow Naoto. If you think about it, Naoto didn't become part of the case till she was thrown in to the TV.

I think the release of the PV are following the days in the game.  Here's a website I found further detailing the comparisons.  LINKOf course, there is a possibility that Naoto won't be in the first season at all (12 episodes) so she might not appear in the PVs this time.  The series begins airing this October.

@mutha3: @metalsnakezero: @PenguinDust: I read in another thread, that there's noone announced to be Naoto's VA and people there suggested that she's not gonna be in the series. I just tried to sarcasticly make fun of that. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

she has to be in the first season... because she talked to Kanji

@Laketown:  Well, there are still 5 unspecified character boxes on the Japanese P4 anime website, so I guess we just need to be patient. 
 
@AlexanderSheen:  It's okay.  I guess I am a little hypersensitive to the "sky is falling, there's no Naoto voice actress posted" comments circling around the web.   It should be noted that, to my best knowledge, the Japanese cast from the game are the same as the voice actors in the series.  Romi Park isn't listed on the official website, but there is no reason to assume she isn't playing the character again just as all the others including fan favorite Rie Kugimiya (Rise).

And that's the reason why this whole uproar is BS. I mean, the Persona series is huge in Japan (and I hope not just there), they not gonna fuck this up with a move like this.

I'm just waiting for the english translation where the main character will be called Charlie Tunoku.

That's going to happen, right? Right!?
