    That’s nice, Marie is my 2nd favourite persona 4 girl, just after Naoto. For sure i’m gonna watch it, to see her fully animated.

    • Jedahaw

      Marie is a fun character, but i also hope that they give them weapons to fight Shadows.
      That was the only thing which was bugging me the entire time in the original P4Anime.

      • friendly neighborhood_dude

        Yep, they were fighting strictly with personas.

      • Mirai

        Basically they need to do the shadow fights exactly like how it was done in Persona 3: Movie.

        • Jedahaw


      • Dede Ogbe

        I know right? they even went to the police station over them as well.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Can’t wait for my Marie voiced by HanaKana <3

  • Shippoyasha

    A-1 Pictures! Can’t wait to see one of my favorite anime studios working on the adaptation. Kind of coming full circle after they animated the original game cutscenes way back in 2008.

  • Addy

    I am really salty about this.

    • Jedahaw

      Agreed. =L

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      It’s not like they took anything away by doing this

      • Addy

        But why? What’s the point? Why was the big Persona announcement just a glorified OVA?

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          Cause some people wanna see the golden bits animated.

          • Addy

            Well I want to see P3P animated. Doesn’t mean it is the best idea.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            I don’t know why it wouldn’t be?

  • Furu Chi

    Wooohooo!! The first time I played P4G, I picked Marie as my first lover cause she’s so cute when she gets angry! And now I get to see her in an anime! Can’t wait to watch it.

    • Arz

      If they put the part where you have to decline others on Valentine’s Day, this remake is truly worth it.

  • Abysswalker90

    When did I enter bizzaro world???
    The article states that it will air at Thursday/Friday morning, yet they also state that it would air at 1-3 AM.
    Who the hell is watching tv at such hours?? Why would anyone choose such a time slot? What the f is going on???
    I can’t be the only one who noticed this massive contradiction?????

    • Shippoyasha

      It’s just the nonsensical way they air any anime that can be deemed not for children.

      Besides, Japanese TV has utilized DVRs for a good 10+ years now. So it hasn’t been a factor all this time.

    • Hagaren

      In Japan, most anime (and especially those aimed at teens and up) air very late at night. The ones aimed at kids are usually super-early in the morning (like 6-8 a.m.), Shonen Jump stuff is usually in the 9-11 a.m. slot or in the evening between 5-7 p.m. The rest airs mostly past midnight.

  • Hagaren

    1:49 a.m.? Wow, crap, I always thought it would air at 1:50 a.m . I was quite off…

  • Kami nii


  • Raul Indries

    I’m guessing that they will make Narukami respond in a different way. Like you can in the game, you’re able to choose his ‘personality’.

  • Arz

    So YuXMarie is becoming official now?

    On serious note, please keep Yu as a mckingpinbigdickGdaddy. I love that personality so much.

    • Thatguy

      I saw his nickname as… Broswagonist. I liked that :D

      • friendly neighborhood_dude

        A total spot on!

    • God

      Hopeso, i disliked his Arena personality.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    whats next… Persona 4 Arena Anime?

    • Julio D. Zulkarnain


      …is not a bad idea, actually. Especially if it’s the ultimax version, gimme moar animated Adachi!

      • Thatguy

        Both. I want both.

      • God

        I wonder how the Magatsu Inaba confrontation will go on this anime, in the past one they changed a crapdyne (bad pun is bad) of stuff.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Honestly, I’d have taken that one because Marie is nowhere to be seen.

  • Rocco

    Do I really need a new Persona 4 anime now? No. Do I love the new key anime visual with Marie in it? You betcha!

  • lesangpro .

    Why ?

    • Manny Being Manny

      Persona is a really big series and the original anime was one of the best selling shows of the last few years. Given that its the year of Persona, with 4 different games getting released and a Persona 3 movie, its the perfect time to capitalize on Persona 4 Golden by giving it an anime.

      • lesangpro .

        just because it’s Persona year doesn’t mean Atlus should milking it ! You think Persona 4 the animation was one of the best selling but other not thinking like that ( and i even love the game )! With one new character with add one story and they make a new anime ? Really ? How about make an anime about etrian odyssey ? I would really love to see that !!

        • Shippoyasha

          I think this is more about giving the animation studios another crack at it more than anything, because the last effort just screamed ‘low budget’.

          • lesangpro .

            not with A-1 Pictures . They scew up a lot of good anime for all i can count . Just leave P4 alone already !

          • Hexodious

            As if they’re going to leave stuff alone that finally makes them a decent amount of money fairly quick.

  • DeAndre Atchison

    Didn’t play golden, but is Marie really worth another anime?

    • Mr_SP

      In and of herself? No. An OVA, sure. But 26 episodes? I’m not sure what their plan is.

      • friendly neighborhood_dude

        26 episodes? Are you sure?? So it seems they’re remaking the show.

        • Mr_SP

          Well, no, not *sure*. It could be 12 to 13 episodes. But if it’s 12-13 episodes, then I *really* have no idea what their plan is.

          25 episodes was barely long enough for the plot and some Social Links. 12 episodes would be cutting out anything not directly related to Marie and the murders, and would still be a tight fit.

      • Takane Shijou

        Putting an actual budget behind the adaption this time?

      • It’s new Game + mode, with the “non cannon” “adachi ending”

        if this : mindblownholyshit

  • Brandon Stark

    as much as i loved persona 4, did they really have to make another p4 anime? could’ve used the effort for a p3 anime maybe. ‘cuz that’s the only way i can get my girlfriend into it because she doesn’t play games.

    • Brandon Stark

      although, it would give them a chance to redo the adachi battle (which was very underplayed) and especially the izanami battle (very VERY underplayed).

  • RichyGaming

    This is so incredibly stupid. They could have went with an anime for Persona 4 Arena, not an entire remake with the addition of one character.


    • friendly neighborhood_dude

      You’re right! But I still think Marie-chan deserves an animation :)

    • God

      3 Words: Adachi Social Link.

      • 2 More: Adachi Ending :O

        • God

          Adachi Ending is the True Ending.
