"Persona 4 the Golden Animation" is hitting the small screen in Japan this July 2014. Directed by Tomohisa Taguchi, we are introduced to new character Marie.
This is a TV anime adaptation of Atlus’ Playstation Vita game. This is a re-telling of the first series. Shoji Meguro composed the music. This show reunites the cast from the game and first television anime, including Daisuke Namikawa as the main character Yū Narukami. Joining the cast is Kana Hanazawa, who will reprise her role of Marie from the Persona 4 Golden PS Vita game.
For non-forms, a glance at the promo video may be interesting to show where anime is right now.
The synopsis from the official website:
Spring. A rural town, far removed from the city, that spends its time peacefully. A boy arrives at Yaso Inaba Station, where the cherry blossom petals are falling. His name is Yū Narukami. Due to his family's situation, he moves to Inaba to live with his uncle, and attends Yasogami High School.
From there, his school life begins: The shopping mall after school. The serial murders happening in the town. The Midnight Channel that comes on late at night...
What days are waiting for Yū and his friends "this time"?
This has been eagerly awaited by anime fans and promises to be quite popular.
