Persona 4 Anime North American Bound

Persona 4 Anime North American Bound

Persona fans rejoice! The anime version of the fourth installment, which begins airing in Japan this October, will be coming to North America at some point, with a digital distribution coming “soon,” and a DVD and BluRay release slated for next year.

The 25-episode series is being brought over seas by Sentai Filmworks, and they offer this description of the series, in case you aren’t familiar with it:

When Yu Narukami’s family moves to the rural country town of Inaba, he’s expecting a lot more peace and quiet than he’s been used to in the big city.  Instead, the peace has been shattered and the only quiet is the quiet of the grave, as a rash of mysterious murders and kidnappings sweep the countryside.  With the police stymied, Yu finds himself joining with a group of eight other teenagers in a desperate bid to solve the mystery.  A mystery that is somehow connected to both the local weather patterns and a strange video game world which Yu, his friends and the enigmatic killer can all enter.  And where each must wield a unique weapon and learn to use amazing powers if they wish to survive.  Journey beyond the Velvet Room as the hit PlayStation 2™ game becomes a spectacular anime in PERSONA 4 the Animation!

Personally, I’m a huge fan of the series, especially Persona 3 and 4, so I’m really excited that we’ll get a chance to experience the anime version.  We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on this and other Persona news, such as when you’ll have the opportunity to watch this series.
