Persona (franchise)



Q. Wait, am I reading correctly that the rerelease of Persona 4 The Animation of Blu-ray has all the extras from the DVD release as well as dual audio? If so, THANK YOU Sentai!

A. Direct copy/paste from the shop: “Extras: Episode 1 Director’s Cut & On Air Version; Japanese Commentaries; Person 4’s Mr. Experiment; A Brief lesson on Izanagi & Izanami; Japanese Commercials; Mr. Experiment Shorts (x5); Clean Opening Animation; Clean Closing Animation” :slight_smile:

Shelf Life: Persona 4: The Animation

Wonder if Sentai is going to pick this movie up?


Hard to say.
We don’t even know if they’ll get the final “true end” episode of P4 that’s being released on the JP BDs


I don’t know why they wouldn’t…they paid for the license, so they’d get it all.


Doesn’t always work that way.
The license was signed before it aired, and the extra episode wasn’t announced until the series was almost over.
Unless the license had a clause that included any future bonus DVD/BD only un-aired extra episodes, the license probably doesn’t include those.
That means, they’ll have to license it seperately as a completely different license if they want to include it.
And that, is what we’re unsure of, since Sentai has yet to confirm whether they will include it or not.


But it’s not an OVA, the “extra” episode is part of the series. it isn’t like they were like “hey lets make a true ending episode,” they planned it before hand. The script for all this stuff is made before hand, not at the last minute.

Are you also questioning if Sentai has those extra 5 minutes of film that the blu-rays have that the DVDs won’t? If it was an OVA, then they would’ve had to pick it up separate, but it’s not, it’s part of the series.


Don’t forget, Sentai weren’t able to get the K-On! shorts becase TBS wouldn’t license them. Or the **Angel Beats ** after epilouge.

Yet they were able to get the **Samurai Girls **shorts and **The World God Only Knows **intro.

So it can go either way, but ultimately depends on the Japanese side if they say:

IT’S A GO!!! :woohoo:


And if you forget, this a full 20-30 minute episode, not some 5 minute short that doesn’t really matter. This is an episode that’s sort of important.


Important or not, if the license doesn’t cover it, they’ll either skip it or have to have a new license drawn up if they want it (if they’re allowed to have it in the first place).

We can assume all day long, the simple fact is, Sentai hasn’t confirmed they have/don’t have it.

And interestingly enough, P4 was one of the rare cases that they actually stated how many episodes it had in their PR.


Persona 4’s 10th BD, DVD to Include ‘True End Episode’

And look, are you also wondering “Will Sentai get the director’s cut of episode 25?” This series as a crap load of extras added onto the blu-ray, so people will buy them instead of DVD. Yeah, that “true episode” is part of the series. You honesty thing that Sentai wouldn’t get it? I would imagine a lot of pissed fans if they didn’t.

Animated clip previously screened after Persona 4 The Animation -The Factor of Hope- film

The official website for the upcoming film Persona 3 the Movie began streaming a 15-second teaser video for the film on Thursday.

The same footage was previously shown at the end of the Persona 4 The Animation -The Factor of Hope- film to announce that the Persona 3 film project had been green-lit.

Although the above clip shows 2D-animated footage, the June announcement of a film project and the official website do not explicitly note that the film will be an anime.

1st indication that RPG-based project has more than 1 film in the works

On Saturday, Aniplex updated the official website for the Persona 3 film with a new key visual and the following words:

[quote]Persona 3 the Movie #1
2013 in theaters[/quote]
This is the first indication that there may be more than one film, and the first announcement of the project’s release schedule. Before Saturday, the website had simply read, “Coming soon.”

The website is also showing the teaser that originally announced this adaptation of the Persona 3 role-playing game from Atlus. The teaser ran at the end of the Persona 4 The Animation -The Factor of Hope- compilation film in June.

Just give us an anime series.

I want to see more of JYB playing an emotionless messianic character who goes around fixing the problems of other people while revealing their darkest secrets to everyone whose problems he has already solved (pyramid scheme schadenfreude). It’s like Clannad, but with less angst, less sappy emotion, less bastardization of baseball and fewer moeblobs. Also with more “robots” and a far cooler “alternate world”.

They picked some lame art here for Kirijo. Shoulda gone with something from the Persona video game. Also concerning art, I don’t remember the creepy old guy (who has a creepy relationship with the protagonist) having bloodshot eyes as he does in this art.
