    Shouldnt the post be tagged USA since that is an Aniplex USA license and upload?

    There was new JPN CM for this anime too

    Its also coming to DAISUKI so people not in us ought to be able to watch it since the crunchyroll/hulu regions can be restrictive.

  • Shippoyasha

    I hope they get into Arena story arc if possible. Also, some kind of a Persona 5 hint would be a fun way hype up the new game.

    • Satoshi Ookami

      Isn’t Arena planned for another anime after P4U gets the story wrapped up?

      • Shippoyasha

        That’s the rumor but I’m not sure how credible it is yet. It makes sense though.

  • Raze

    One good thing that I can expect from this is new ost that I can look forward to

    And maybe the babehunt2, beach scene, jester, and valentine (I hope they pick the disaster route)

    “Hell yeah…I’m ready to be born dammit!!”


    • friendly neighborhood_dude

      My body is soooooo ready for a new persona OST!

    • vileBrenman

      Yeah the only reason I’m exited by this is possibility for new persona Ost

    • ER_Mac3

      And speaking of ost… I hope this time they make good use of Genesis.

      • Jedahaw

        And Mist/Fog too!
        They didnt even used it in the first one…

        • Guest

          Exactly, they just cut the best part of the track! lol Wouldn’t hurt to create a little more action to fit the amazing track into the scene…

  • Do we even know what this is about now? Feels kinda stupid to just pick out Marie’s segments, wouldn’t be any less stupid to do all of P4 again although we already have that animated tho…really confusing

    The director staff is what worries me most tho, Kishi is the Uwe Boll of anime least he’s not the lead one iirc.

  • I am sooo excited for this!

    Persona shine brightest in Anime for me ^_^

    Me and my sis loved the first series.

    • God

      Then i’m guessing you didn’t play Persona 1, 2 or 3.

      • Actually I have played 1 & 2 albeit over 10 years ago. I did skip 3 however. I think I was too young to know if the dungeons were ultra repetitive back then. Either way, enjoying the anime with my sister really adds a lot of awesome points to it since we both get into it and she loves her some Yu lol

        • God

          I was just saying that if you think Persona shines brightest in anime, only P4 has an anime, and most people agree that P4 isn’t the best in the franchise… It was a logical assumption.

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    Still a little bummed that Aniplex has the Persona Anime licenses, but I’ll still stream as it airs to show my support.

  • God

    It’s already been 3 years since the persona 4 animation and 2 years since golden, but still… ALL WE HAVE ON PERSONA 5 IS A MEDAMN TRAILER OF CHAIRS?!?! What the fuck, Atlus?!

    • Hexodious

      Better for me, I don’t want Persona 5 trailers when the game is like a half year away from it’s release date.

      • God

        Don’t you want any kind of info?

        • Hexodious

          I’ve already read the interview what Persona 5 is about and that’s good enough for me until TGS/Winter.

          • God

            You… you are not human… i didn’t create you to be like that… what kind of anomaly are you?!

          • Hexodious

            Well.. the Shin Megami Tensei series teach me True Demon Ending is the way to go.

      • Ric Vazquez


    • Neppygear

      If P3 and 4 were any indication, we won’t be getting any substantial info on P5 until reeeeaaaaally close to release.

      • God

        Shut up Nepgear, you almost killed the Neptunia franchise!

        • Neppygear

          I’m just going to assume you meant to say “improved it immensely by gracing us with your glorious presence”, but misspelled a few words.

          • God

            Presence? Dude, a banana has more presence than you, and is funnier, and overall more fit to protagonize a game, now bring your exponentialy awesomer sister, you know, the one reason your game didn’t crash and burn.

          • Neppygear

            What the goodness, such hurtful words…

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      You do know how atlus works right?

      • God

        Who do you think you are talking to? Omnipotence doesn’t mean i can’t bitch about stuff.

  • Hexodious

    I’m not complaining, the first P4 anime was shitty animation work. It felt like watching Pain vs Naruto all over again.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Who cares they fix all of that in the bluray anyways

      • Hexodious

        I care, which my opinion is about.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          But they fix it in the blurays so it’s like why bother?

          • Hexodious

            It’s about the idea that they did shitty animation works, doesn’t matter if it’s fixed now or not.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            It kinda does considering every anime does it.

          • Hexodious

            if you say so.

  • Eder García

    it will be available on Netflix?

  • I wish this show would air on television. That would give me something to look forward to on TV.

  • Tyler Beale

    *clicks play, see Aniplex*

    • MrJechgo

      Sentai Filmworks was just as faulty IMO…

  • LexKitteh

    Wow, so this takes place 3 years after Persona 4?? I cant complain anymore, I thought they were rebooting the show. I hope the main cast has their appearances from the true ending photo in P4 Golden! :D

    • persona_yuji

      I think they mean that the original anime aired in 2011, 3 years ago.

      • LexKitteh

        Yeah.. That makes the most sense.. Well, considering the trailer opened with the final scene from Persona 4, and then saying 3 years later, I got my hopes up. >_<

        • God

          Never get your hopes up with Atlus, only one of the 1 hype trains they create actually leads somewhere.

  • Rabbit

    Wait so…. this takes place three years after the original animation? Or… Is it three years after the animation in our time and it’s still a retelling of P4?

    • Guest


      • Rabbit

        Wait… What?

        • LM009

          P4G is a retelling of P4 with Marie(a new char), I’m guessing they might focus on Marie’s arc not sure if they’re retelling the entire story, the original was already rushed and it was 2cour. Now they want to add Marie’s arc >_>

        • MrJechgo

          It’s a retelling of the animation, but with the events of Golden mixed in.

  • ivanchu77

    This is depressing

  • Some of you keep complaining about it, and I have a simple solution for you…Don’t watch it! It’s that simple. Bitching about it isn’t going to change the fact that we’re getting another P4 anime.

  • Hi Ishaan, I love your site and what you’re doing to educate people interested in Golden Animation.
