Honestly if you haven't played Persona 4 or watched the animation that came out a few years ago I wouldn't recommend watching this, but hey I can't control what yu do.

That was intersting as everyone else said before this is a +new game with max stats I never played Golden version of Persona 4.. I'm a bit disappointed this is only going to be 13 eps. I was hoping they cover some of the ARENA stuff as well... I'll keep watching thought..

I am glad they did it this way. It makes it so you can watch the original Persona 4 Animation, and watch this and not get bored by it. I am already really enjoying the whole badass / quirky Yu, it's hilarious. I love the Yosuke's reaction, he's like WTF why are you so OP? and Yu just smirks. Now this is an OP self-insert main character done right, he just revels in his badassery. I just love how Persona 4 is capable of having a sense of humor, too many things take themselves way too seriously these days.

I'd prefer Arena animated rather than Golden.

I want to see my OTP animated.

Yeah I highly suggest to not watch this if you didn't play the games or at least watched the last P4 anime which did a pretty good job summarizing the main plot/social link interactions within 24-26 episodes because otherwise your not gonna like how the pacing will be handled judging by the next episode trailer lol. It feels more tailor-made for the people who at least watched the last anime and giving them an extra bonus in the form of Golden content and NG+ MC. I can tell this anime is gonna focus more on the new game + style run with all the new Golden content added which should last about 12-13 episodes depending on the direction it goes.

Arena Anime would be great especially since there is more material for that when the 2nd games comes out in 1-2 months.

Wow, this show moves FAST. I've played P4G, so I have no problems keeping up with the story, but damn. I'm not expecting much from this show, and I'm not sure that I'll keep watching it. I did like their use of P4G's opening song at the beginning though.

Is the MC a player-replacement or is he a character from the games? I don't know much about Persona.

Yū Narukami is his name from both the first anime and the Arena games. In those, he has his own personality. In the Persona 4 game(s), the player can dictate how he acts (and give him a different name); his personality in this anime is more akin to how he acts with maxed stats and all choices available (i.e. New Game +), as noted above.

Considering the pacing of this I wonder if they're going to completely race through the social links of some of the lesser side characters, or even skip them altogether. Even the first anime completed a ton in one episode, in a 26 episode anime.

I played the shit out of the game. I recommend people buy a Vita just to play P4G. Or you know, play the ugly ol PS2 original.

lol this is a new game + P4G run with the MC maxed personality stats and skill cards buffed/high level Izanagi. At least that brings enough freshness for another P4 retelling. This MC version is much more satisfying to watch too since he is not such a deadpan/reserved individual like in the last one.


His style is too damn high -_-



Yeah, as soon as I saw that I though NG+

In English version of P4/P4G you get the "Who are you calling a loser?" option, but you can only use in on a second play through since it requires courage that you otherwise wouldn't have had. First play through you just have to meekly accept it.

I think the whole thing is just to do Marie, Jester, Ski Trip, Valentines, Moped Trip, Hollow Forest etc. Maybe even flesh out the music group and sports routes.

If they manage to do the cosplay dungeons, with reactions, I'll be happy. Having the guys dungeon crawl....



that usually brings out a reaction, but not so much as....



Got to admit that P4G is my favourite game, ever, when PS TV is released over here I'll be buying it just so I can play P4G on a big screen TV and not just the small one. As for the anime, if it captures the humour that is in the game then it'll be a win, Kuma climbing the stairs to adulthood....... awesome sauce....

So, some classic shots from P4G on the Vita.

As others say, this is basically an anime of a New Game+ playthrough of Persona 4 the Golden. Basically the first Persona 4 anime is like a blind playthrough of an RPG. This anime is sort of like a second playthrough where you will be making different choices, but skipping through everything that doesn't change.
