Persona 4 takes place in the same universe as Persona 3 in a rural town named Inaba. There have been mysterious murders occurring whenever there was fog after heavy rain. There were also rumors about a channel on television airing only at midnight called Mayonaka TV, during which it is said that one can see his/her "other half" when staring at the TV screen.

After hearing about a recent unsolved murder which occurred during the fog, the characters—the main character, Chie, and Yōsuke—discuss how each of them had attempted to watch the mysterious TV channel and witnessed the murder victim. The protagonist later realizes that during midnight when the channel is on, his body can phase into his television set as a gateway to enter another world infested with shadows.

After discovering this, they all decide to explore. When first completely entering the world, dazed and confused, the main character meets Teddie. Mayonaka TV and the town murders seem to have a connection. The murder victims may be merely victims of Mayonaka TV. Everyone decides that they will together try to solve the mysterious murders by exploring the hidden world of Mayonaka TV.

After the closing events of Persona 3 on January 31, 2010, Persona 4 starts April 11, 2011, Putting the start of Persona 4 fourteen months after the end of Persona 3, this is also evident by the appearance of an older Chihiro, who is now a 3rd year student.




Pretty obviously a game adaptation, but it's cool and I enjoyed it anyway Gonna be interesting to see where this goes, seeing as I've never played the game (: What do you guys think?

Oh My God.

I played Persona 3 for the psp, and it blew me away. First game I ever played over 100 hours on.

I never got to play Persona 4 though, shame.

I might watch this simply because Atlus is amazing

It was a bit fast paced to be honest, but at the same time anyone who's seen or played the first part of the game knows that it's pretty damn slow at the start. The fast pacing can be filled in with the blanks of the game's knowledge but i'm unsure of the impression this will leave of newcomers, still great episode - Brotag seems a little restrained but then again he never physically talked originally anyway.

Lets see:
The op was nice, the ed was nice, the soundtrack was nice.
It was interesting, the fight could have been better.
I`ll continue watching it.

Not a fan of the artstyle tbh.
And as a person who has never played the games.
It took a few moments to figure out what was going on.

NOTE: my feedback might have spoiler so beware...

Here is alink to the streaming

http://www.theanimenetwork.com/Anime/Persona-4/Episode-1/Watch


I got so excited to see the begining of the anime the same as it is in the game . I am glad I played the game a few weeks ago even though only for 10 hours.

A lot got really introduced in the first episode but I guess they really wanted to show the first Persona , Yu's persona or in my game I named him as Takashi.
Well The game actually moved fast in the first couple days, they followed the game as close as they can.

It is true that a lot is not clear in the anime as it is in the game, so for someone who hasnt played this ,will be confused abit... you might say ....what the hell is going on ..what the ..how the.Thats how I felt when I played the game. But since the game had that feel ,I was expectiing the same thing from the anime .

It was funny when it started raining ,because i immediately said "NOOO the fog is coming !!! " with much anxiety ......I stoped myself and started laughing.

However I LOve the tunes.Its different.Its cool.Very cool.

.I havent finished the game yet since I am not a RPG gamer. I prefer faster paced games like Gears of War.But playing the game made a bigger impact on me because it increased my desire to really want to watch this anime and so far I am not disappointed.

Well except for one , the fight scene. Those are weak shadows compared to the persona. The scene was very fragmented, so hopefully it is better next time...I hope.

Anyway, Cant wait to see the next episodes,see more of the school ,the house, the environment , the town and see which route are they going to take.
