Fans of Atlus' fine RPG/high-school-sim Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 got some awesome news earlier this week, and here's the video to seal the deal!
While some games--Mass Effect, for example--are a bit of a stretch for the anime treatment, Persona 4 is a strong fit. The trailer above indicates the show will be done in the same style as the game's cutscenes, but with even more detail. If anyone else is squeeing as hard as I am right now, I can't hear them!
I'll be on the edge of my seat to see how they portray Kanji's desperation to seem tough despite his attraction to males, or if they'll show the gender-bending Naoto in any sort of positive light. Anime has traditionally been a bastion for crossing the gender divide, but the official art so far shows Naoto looking rather feminine, not quite like her preferred ambiguous presentation.
The fully-animated interpretation will likely feature a talking protagonist as well, though hopefully making exactly the same decisions as my character for full accuracy...! It's being handled by Anime International Company and begins airing this fall.
