Product Description

When Yu Narukami moves to the country town of Inaba to stay with his uncle and cousin, he's expecting a lot more peace and quiet than he's been used to in the big city. What he isn't expecting is for his uncle's job as a police detective to spill over into his own life. Or for the murders that are occurring across town to be somehow linked to Yu's own strange experiences, odd local weather patterns and a mysterious TV show world that seems to be attempting to get Yu to enter it! Now, together with a new group of friends, Yu must plunge into a bizarre alternate reality where he gains unique abilities that will either help him solve the riddle of the mystery killer, or lead him to his doom. Journey into the Velvet Room and beyond as the hit PlayStation 2® game becomes a spectacular anime in PERSONA 4: The Animation Collection 1!


The fantasy-adventure Persona 4 (2011) is based on the fifth installment in the ongoing series of PlayStation 2 games. When his parents go abroad, Yu Narukami moves in with his uncle and niece in the flyspeck town of Inaba. He expects to spend a boring year at Yasogami High, then a mysterious killer starts leaving bodies sprawled on old TV antennas. Yu makes some friends at school--exuberantly klutzy Yosuke, bossy Chie, shy Yukiko, and tough guy Kanji--who tell him about the "midnight channel." On rainy nights, bizarre images appear on television at the stroke of 12. Yu discovers he and his friends can pass through TV screens into an alternate world that seems tied to the midnight channel--and the murders. Each person who enters the weirdly colored realm beyond the screen has to confront the embodiment of his hidden desires. Yukiko must acknowledge her longing for a freedom she also fears; Kanji, who kicked the soba out of the local biker gang, sews cute little animals. When they accept their flaws, the teenagers receive magical cards that enable them to summon their "personas," powerful creatures who battle the resident demons. Teddie, a melodramatic bear who may remind viewers of Kon in Bleach, guides them through the netherworld. Persona 4 is a welcome rarity: a series based on a computer game that can be enjoyed by people who've never played the game. Yu and his friends are an engaging, believable group of teens; the mystery plot has enough unexpected twists to distinguish it from countless other student detective stories, and the designs of the personas display a quirky originality. This highly entertaining set will leave viewers eagerly awaiting the second half of the season. In English only.

I just got the Blu-ray of Persona 4: The Animation today which is a few weeks before it's supposed to be released, but I pre-ordered it back in July from Rightstuf who for some reason decided to ship it to me early before the release date. As you can imagine I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email telling me that it had already shipped!

But enough about how I got it, lets get on with the review! This release only contains the English audio and not any of the Japanese track, but that's a problem with the Japanese licensers not Sentai Filmworks. If Sentai was allowed, they would have kept the Japanese track in. As far as the English voice cast goes, just like the video game, it is amazingly good and most of the voice actors, even the side characters, reprised their roles. The only differences are the voices of Chie Satonaka, who is now played by Erin Fitzgerald instead of Tracey Rooney, and Teddie, who is now played by Sam Riegel instead of Dave Wittenberg.

However, Teddie fans will not be disappointed because Sam Riegel does an amazing Teddie in the same style as Dave Wittenberg, at times I even forgot that Teddie was even recast because it was so similar to the Dave Wittenberg performance. And yes, the un-bearable puns are still there.

Chie(Fitzgerald) sounds quite different from Chie(Rooney), but the voice still sounds right for the character and Chie is still Chie. The folks that complained that Chie sounded too old in the game will be glad that Chie sounds more like a high school girl.

The story is great, the cast is great, and even people who didn't play the game can get into it. A must-have for anime and Persona fans.

I mostly buy my anime for the Japanese track; very rarely do I watch something dubbed in a language that is not what it was originally released in. The last few anime series I've liked enough to buy have been disappointing in terms of local releases. Persona 4? Met and exceeded my expectations.

The subtitles are very well translated, and true to the Japanese dialogue, which shocked the hell out of me. Most anime such as this usually stick to the English naming conventions in the dub. I was surprised to see Teddie come up by his Japanese "Kuma" come up, among other instances of dialogue where it would be different in English. The only exception of this was Pyro Jack/Jacklantern, though I suspect this was due to copyright issues over multiple series, and doesn't come up often enough to be a noticeable glare on the translation. So, bravo to the translators for doing something I haven't seen done for a good ten years or so.

The menus are very nice, with full audio and some nice eye candy for the backgrounds. I haven't had the pleasure of checking out the special features yet, but I'm sure they won't disappoint. If I had to complain about ANYTHING, it would be that the Japanese audio track just does not seem to play that loud when compared to the English audio track.

Oh yes, and what I said about rarely watching stuff dubbed? Yeah; I actually LIKE the anime dub. I really enjoy the new voice actors they got for Chie and Teddie; I feel they are truer in pitch to the original Japanese than the voice actors they used in the game. JYB also did surprisingly well on double duty as Yu and Adachi, though I must admit that it took me two times watching it to notice the difference in their voices.

All in all, this is great. If you like the Persona series, you should already have this, but if you haven't seen it before, pick it up. Well worth adding to any anime collection.

Format: Blu-ray
+ near-perfect adaptation
+ captures all the nuance of the game into a new form
+ helps to develop some of the lighter features from the game, especially SLink characterizations
+ looks really nice - great motion and reasonably well scripted fight scenes
+ + genuinely funny
+ + + best job of pulling off a twist I've ever seen in animation in episode 12

- nameless, voiceless protagonist does not translate particularly well outside of a game setting (Yu doesn't have a lot of lines)
- some of the funnier sections of the game are paired down to much faster jokes in the show, losing much of their effectiveness
- some of the story that takes weeks in-game unfolds in one episode in the show, lessening its importance
- around one minute of dead-silent credits after every episode
- - anyone who has not played the game will only get about half as much out of this show as those who have
- - - barest of bones Blu-Ray release, with one language, minimal subtitling (not even for hearing impaired) and absolutely no special features at a more-than-minimal release price.

I loved playing Persona 4 the Golden for PS Vita so much that I decided to buy the blur-ay once I saw that such a thing existed. And all I have to say is it's a really well done anime that follows the game (from which it originated) accurately at least for the first blu-ray. I found the english voice acting to be great just like the game. However some of the original voice actors/actresses were changed from the original Persona 4 PS2 game and is more similar to Persona 4 Golden Vita game (with some also minor exceptions like Naoto). Though the changes might be a deal breaker for those who don't like change, I still recommend it as it is an awesome anime that should be seen by anime lovers. So buy it if your a Persona 4 fan or an anime lover!

NO JPN Audio on Blu Ray
Because blu-ray discs don't have as many region codes as DVDs do. Japan and the US have different region codes for DVDs, but we share a blu-ray region code. The Japanese licensor is afraid that people in Japan will import the US blu-ray release because it's significantly cheaper than the Japanese... Read More

Question about VA
Johnny Young Bosch is voicing Yu Narukami and Adachi yes. Yukiko and Yousuke, and Kanji all have the same people voicing as well.

Chie has the same actress from Persona 4 Golden and Arena and sounds alright actually.

Adachi sounds a little like a cross between his Ichigo/Renton voice. Its not...
