One thing I am looking forward to is if they will actually add the little events and conversations where you have to level up the social links. Would be cool if he dates one of the female characters though or All of them!

Actually like the way he was in the first episode myself. Would expect him to be pretty Plain Jane at the start anyway. Expect them to use the ton of in game dialogue, especially with social link options, to give him a bit of personality as the show progresses, though.

There wasn't really much in the first episode that would have given him the chance to show much of personality anyway. He just moved there, doesn't really know anyone, is still getting acclimated, and gets thrown into some pretty strange stuff. Mostly event driven rather than much in the way of talking so far.

There is also other characters lines to consider. In most story events the people around him mostly carried the conversation. Regardless, I think the point is that he is a pretty bland person to begin with that develops as things progress. In the game that would be in whatever way you wanted, more or less, in the anime they will probably have to pick a route to go with.

Edit: On the other hand I think there was a couple places in the first episode that did indeed have in game choices on what to say and he just didn't say anything. When meeting Dojima, for example. Could just be a time issue with the first show but doesn't give me a lot of confidence that they are even going to give him those lines. Still, for the most part I was fine with the way he was. More dialogue would have been nice but since the whole game went without him really talking and was written as such, other characters lines included, I don't really mind. Not really sure I want Yu getting lines, especially ones that weren't even in the game, at the expense of the other characters. Seemed a bit of their lines got cut as is.

And am I the only one that thinks its odd the the Anime Network's stream comes out a day before Hulu's, and they use an embedded Hulu video?

From the TAN website (emphasis added is mine):

Starting October 6, P4 will begin simulcasting on Anime Network Online at 3 PM Eastern. 24 hours AFTER that, Hulu will be getting their slice of the Persona pie over on their website, in the form of a free, ad-supported version of the episodes. After that we'll switch over to the hulu player on our own site. Don't worry, AN Subscribers, your version will ALWAYS be commercial free and in HD!

For fans of the series I’m sure this is a wonderful first episode. The characters are all very unique and I can tell that there is suppose to be a little bit of excitement in seeing the classroom, but as someone that doesn’t know about these people I can only guess at it. That isn’t to say that this is a weak point for the show. I am genuinely interested in these characters and want to see what is happening to them. We see very little of the other world in this first episode and it mostly serves to fill the action quota for the episode. If this show is only for the purposes of selling more copies of the game then the production is going above and beyond for this one. I’m very excited to see where this one is going.

Verdict: 4 out of 5

I'm taking a look at all of the streaming anime this season so if you would like to see more head over to my blog:

I have only played persona 3 but i like the anime so far nice animation and was enjoyable to watch decent fight scene at the end. Only complaint is main character barely talked and was bland compared to everyone else. Also the day changing thing they included from the game is a nice touch.

Loved the game and really love this series. Getting to see more expressions on the characters that you don't get in the games really makes it that much more enjoyable. I love the gags and Narukami's one-liners LOL

Its absolutely brilliant for someone like me, who is a huge fan of the Persona series and has played the game. To see the characters in action is amazing

But its not so great for people who haven't played the game, because they will have no clue of whats going on. The anime skipped a ton of the plot canon which you could only truely understand by playing the game. So I am imagining the anime is more of a fanservice for the Persona fans than it is a medium to usher in new fans. Either way, its a heck of a lot better than the other anime based off of persona.

So far I love it quite a bit.
Of course, I'd probably love just about anything SMT games and other related things that are thrown my way.

But I just got done watching the most recent episode and I'd have to say; I'm kinda jealous that their Kuma/Teddie boss battle was a lot easier than in the game. They be straight up cheatin'. P:
