    Fuka! (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ ♥ ♥ ♥

  • axemtitanium

    This is the first time I’ve found anime hair irl to not be patently ridiculous looking (see Phoenix Wright, every cosplay ever, etc.), so nice job on that!

    • Pedro Furtado

      To be fair, Persona’s hair doesn’t differ much from haircuts people use

  • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • P3 Messiah

      Your avatar shows the exact reaction.

  • mmm Fuka looking good.

  • KoRLumen

    Besides Ken and Akihiko (and Yukari, kinda), they really did a good job making them resemble the characters o:

  • harmonyworld

    Looks really good!
    Usually I don’t like anime being made into live action, but this isn’t so bad lookin’~

  • Smooosh

    Weird masquerade indeed… :V
    But most of those actually look pretty nice, especially FeMC.

  • leadintea

    As cheesy and corny as this is, I must say that Fuka’s blouse looks really good. Also, Ikutsuki’s actor can tap me like a maple tree any day of the week, cuz that man looks fine as ****!

    • Rose Spinoza

      “tap me like a maple tree” is something I’ve never heard of until today, but I love it XD .

  • Rokmoninov

    Where is Koromaru?

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      going to be a guy in a suit

    • Mnoz

      They are still negotiating a contract with the dog from COD Ghosts.

  • Desk

    what’s up with ken

  • samsneeze

    I see the main character’s hair still looks as dumb as it does in the game.

    • DwillXXII

      Too swag for you brah

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    They’re all lovely! :3

  • NeptuniasBeard

    And special cameo from this guy

    As Yu Narukami

    • shuyai

      i am guessing this is from porn…

      • P3 Messiah

        Yes, is the guy from the cosplay porn. He is going to take all Minato/Makoto´s waifus for him.

        • Land of Green Pasture

          show me the NTR

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      hes going to be cumming in fast

      • Altin

        He will go full “BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY!”

    • Brotato Chip

      this made my day lol

    • Afternoon Intergalactic


  • I like Shinji, Fuuka and Mitsuru. Two Kens? Maybe one for each protag, or going for The Shining vibe.

    • Tienron

      kids cant do full time in theater, so normally they have two. can you imagine how exhausting it would be for them?

      • I was just kidding. I thought it would be something like that.

  • P3 Messiah

    Now I want an Adachi solo stage play.

  • …What the actual fudge?

  • Derek E Nay

    Ok ladys, take your eyes off Shinjiro. He’s mine!

  • Pedro Furtado

    Mitsuro and Pharos look very cool

    • thrak

      You mean Fallos?… Look closely at the name on his picture…

      • Pedro Furtado

        I lol’d, fine, I mean ファーロス or maybe ファロス, not sure

        • Tim Young

          It’s ファルロス.

          • Pedro Furtado

            well, that’s unexpected

  • Demeanor

    Hats off tu Mitsuru, Fuuka, Ikutsuki and Shinjiro. FeMC looks quite good too.

  • Snorlaxation

    I’m really liking this. But I’m also laughing a bit too much.

  • Jesse Torres

    What do the plays consist of?
    Obviously no fighting cause they can summon Personas, so is it just mystery?

    • DragKudo

      They do actually have fighting scenes. Watch the Persona 4 stage play. Adachi punched the shit out Naoto.

      and they use a screen to show the personas and shadows.
      Mitsuru’s voice actor cosplayed as Mitsuru wonder why they didn’t just get her.

      • Seizui

        …Hearing the fact of ‘Adachi punching the shit out of ‘ makes me smile. :)

  • DragKudo

    Fuuka’s name looks ugh DX with one u.

    I know I know.

  • dat shinji

  • b4lmung

    Hamko !!

  • Kaitou21

    Oh god.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    This is weirdly working for me.

  • HelloACiDDD

    Shinji looks dope. 100 times better than my cosplay haha
    is this the second play? i heard there was a DVD release of the first play, was it ever released on the webs? i really want to watch it even without subs

    • Saphira

      I haven’t seen any uploads of the first play sadly :( though if you search through tumblr, I think there are some scenes uploaded (VERY short scenes).

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I must admit, I’m actually quite impressed. Not only are their looks very faithful to the game’s character designs, but they also sport them quite well. The only one that comes off as rather weird to me is Pharos.

    Bonus points for the fact that they didn’t forget about the female MC. That said, it does raise the question as to how exactly are the two protagonists integrated into the play. Are they going to use them interchangeably?

    • Saphira

      I’m assuming it will be like the first play where there was 2 versions of the play… so yea, they switch places every other performance.

  • Justin Graham

    Regardless of the quality of the actual stage production, those are some fantastic costumes.

  • Go2hell66

    nice wig

  • thrak

    I must admit, Shinjiro looks really good. Wait..Fallos?…REALLY?…NOOOO, JAPAN, NOOO, STAHP

    • Alex

      I laughed at first, But then I felt sad for some reason…

      • thrak

        I feel sad for Japan failing at english and thinking their ignorance is okay. English is not my native language too, but at least I am trying! Also I feel sorry for Pharos, he is a cool character and they probably killed this play for western audiences

  • Alex

    I like Shinji’s Pea coat, Like a lot, I want one.

  • Can’t wait to see this for Aoi Shouta!!

  • leingod

    As weird as it sounds, I never pictured the characters as actual japanese people until now :P . Guess because of the anime designs being mostly neutral regarding differences between western and japanese people?

    Anyway. There’s gonna be 2 MCs? How are they gonna pull that off?

    • Saphira

      They alternate for each performance. For example, Male!MC performs first, then second play, Female!MC will be the lead. Basically, there are two versions of the play… if that’s what you were asking XD

      • leingod

        Yeah. Sounds like a bother, but a good reason to assist twice :)

  • revenent hell

    Actually I think everyone looks rather good for their characters except Akihiko.
    I kind of think they should have gotten someone with “sharper” angles for their face for him like the guy playing Aragaki. The dude for Akihiko has a much “rounder” like face.

  • Ric Vazquez

    This looks more interesting than I expected…
