Come on where are all my Persona 4 people at?

Haha so I just found out a last night the Persona 4 anime will be on its way
I'm honestly really excited for it as Persona 4 is one of my favorite games
Now I've not heard the original Japanese voices (because I play the game in English) but apparently they're getting the Japanese voice actors from the game to voice the characters in the anime

I'm honestly wondering wheither the main character will have many speaking parts
as he was a silent protagonist in the game

Edit: The preview is out now



Also it should be more an unspoken rule but

Man, I am so excited for this! Persona 4 was one of my favorite PS2 games.

On Brotagonist speaking, it would be great if they did it like in the manga and had him speak, but not that much.

What's the point? isn't it more fun to play the game yourself and make your own decisions? I never understood anime and manga based on video games. Or movies, for that matter. There's a reason why they never do well. I played and beat Persona 4, that was enough.
Whoa, cool! If it is published, I will watch it immediately :3

It's re-living the story without the weeks it takes to play the game
Definite plus in my book not to mention the differences the anime/manga adaptation takes can sometimes be fun

Why has no one informed me of this before?! I've seen the manga for Persona 3, but there's an anime for Persona 4?! OMG, this is sooooooooooo awesome!

There was also a manga for Persona 4 as well

One of the biggest changes is that the main character's name will not be Souji like in the manga
Souji was considered the cannon name for the main character just like Minato was considered the cannon name for the Persona 3 main character

And when they deviate too much, it turns into Kuroshitsuji neutral
I suppose those who dislike video games and those too lazy to get through the whole game would benefit. As for me, I know what's coming and most of the jokes and stuff, so it'd just be a waste of time. Kind of like Deathnote: I read the manga, and though the anime had some extra scenes, I couldn't be bothered since it was pretty much the exact same thing. Unless P4 changes dramatically from the game's core, I'd rather watch something with an original storyline not previously in anything else, you know?
Although i'm excited i'm thinking it's gonna stick exactly to the game. I'll watch it anyway but it'll be pretty boring.

Oh it wasn't too bad until it got to the last couple of episodes
I mean really wtf was that Kuro? *cough* anyway
not sure if what they did to there was worse then what happened with the Soul Eater anime

Anime often help get more people into the series or get in people who couldn't play the game
I got into the Higurashi and Umineko fandom because of the anime
To read the entire visual novels takes months even if you sit around and read all the time
and let's be honest that's really kinda boring to sit in front of a computer screen and read all day every day
I've been read/playing Umineko for over 24 hours combined and I'm barely just over what they covered in episode 2 of the anime

Tales of the Abyss is another good example of a game turned anime. I started watching the anime first and adored it. Then I set out on that fun journey to play the game.

Besides how is this really different then them making a manga
Which they do for almost everything popular these days?
