          How did I know this was going to happen? Probably because I was planning on posting the same thing if someone had already posted “MY” before I did, lol.

          • PrinceHeir

            is this a reference with P3 or P4?

            i haven’t played P4 that much yet, and P3 it’s been awhile since i last played it(2011?)

            • Kobracon

              lol its the OP song, PrinceHeir. Burn my Dread. ManagedCorn is just messing around.

              • PrinceHeir

                lol for some reason i didn’t look at the song name during the trailer XD

                • whiteferrero

                  i think you’re still confused. here:



                  • PrinceHeir


                    tbh i don’t remember that much with P3 since i made alot of hiatuses before i finally be able to finish the game

              • 罪罰

                Thanatoast burned the bread :c

          • AnimusVox

            I love you all for that

  • 罪罰

    All aboard the hype train, baby!
    Choo! Choo!

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Dammit… I know I’m going to cry like a baby again if the ending is anything like the ending to P3 the game, but I’ll watch it anyway ;w;

    • Eclipse

      You too, huh?

      I seriously don’t know if I can endure that ending again… It left me feeling pretty sad for quite some time. Heck, that ending might’ve even given me Apathy Syndrome! >_<

      • TetsuyaHikari

        I know! It’s so amazing, but gah… I beat P3, then I cried. FES came out, then I beat it and cried again. I can’t escape!

        I’m probably going to do the same once this comes out D:

        • AnimusVox

          Don’t worry I’ll supply the tissue

      • DongT

        same i felt so empty once i beat it :P

    • Niyari

      it’s part of what makes the game so memorable though… a great “journey” indeed

  • Rohman Aditya ‘Zamboze’ Dharma

    no aigis on the poster,,,,

  • Zetsy Mei

    Time to own purses and burn bread.

    • LightGenx

      And I’m all out of bread.

  • PrinceHeir

    amazing stuff!!

    glad they kept the original JPN voices, though Yukari doesn’t sound like Megumi Toyoguchi(need to hear her more first) and 0:53, if that is Fuuka she sounded more like Kotobuki, Minako(Mugi from K-On!) and not her original voice which is Mamiko Noto.

    you can’t really go wrong with either one(love to have more Kotobuki, Minako) but i think they will definitely keep the same voice actors in the end.

  • DyLaN

    The return of super creepy anime Igor eyes O_O

  • Kobracon

    Movie #1?? Theres gonna be more? Hell yeah!

    • 罪罰

      3 movies!

      • Pyrofrost

        That’s what I’m expecting.

        #1. Through the summer.
        #2. Through the remainder of The Journey.
        #3. Through The Answer.

        • Niyari

          well it seems like Aegis isn’t going to be in the first movie and she shows up in July. the second movie will probably end up covering a loooot more ground

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Makes sense since she wasn’t present during 75% of the game or so, lol.

    • PrinceHeir

      yeah it’s been confirmed for awhile now.

      they might cover The Answer scenario for this :)

      • FFXIIKD

        so this good stuff :D

  • MasterSensei

    Will Minato act like Yuu did in the Persona 4 anime? Yuu was deadpan which made everything he said funny (IMO) I always like a mixture of seriousness with comedy.

    • Niyari

      considering the tone of the game i wouldn’t expect much humor outside of Junpei

      • AnimusVox

        Yeah I never thought of P4 as being serious, especially compared to 3. Which is why I liked 3 more, personally. Not that didn’t have humor but still, I found it darker than 4.

  • new_tradition

    Owait, didn’t Igor’s Japanese VA sadly die? Are they just gonna reuse the dialog he’s already said in the game or is there a new VA?

    Gonna have to get used to Makoto over Minato…

    • Eclipse

      Yeah, he passed away back in 2010. Apparently, they’re going to be using his previous voice recordings.

      Lol, same here. I’ll always know him as Minato

  • HeatPhoenix

    Was about to ask “who the hell is makoto yuki”.

    • Bec66

      That’s the main characters name.

  • Micheal Scott

    I’ve been waiting for this :D

  • kuusou yume


  • sherimae1324

    but i liked minato more….. you should ask the fans first atlus….

    makoto….minato…..makoto….minato… ok its minako for me

    • DyLaN

      I think it have to do with copyright.

    • LightGenx

      Minato Arisato was never the “official” name. It was the name for the main character in the P3 manga.

  • Locksus

    Aw come on, if you’re going to include a Latin phrase in the cover, at least do it right :p

    I’m fairly confident “Mement mori” isn’t the right way to spell it.

  • Van Sora

    The best persona games is finally getting a movie, well, it’s the best persona along with persona 2.

  • Cherudim Arios Seravee


    – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    i am afraid to suffer the death of minato in the end again.
