Rumor: Mayonaka TV might be a Persona 4 anime adaptation


8:00 PM on 04.09.2011



If certain trailers and teaser sites are to be believed, there may be something related to Persona 4 in the works, and we may know more in less than two days.

A mysterious live-action trailer circulating through the web shows a bunch of people talking about the rumored "Mayonaka TV". Persona 4 fans may know that "Mayonaka TV" is the Japanese name for the "Midnight Channel", the key story element in Persona 4.

The trailer ends with a web address leading to mayonaka-tv.jp, a teaser site with a shade under two days left on a countdown clock. Incidentally, the clock runs out on April 11th 2011 (Japan time), which is the same day that Persona 4 "begins".

Whether or not this is an anime project specifically is unstated, but other images discovered suggest the existence of a "Persona 4 Animation" project bankrolled by Aniplex, Sony's big anime/music distribution house. Intrepid fans note that decompiling files on the teaser site lead to files entitled "anime" and a (currently) blank site at P4A.jp . What could that "A" mean?

Having a Persona project go all "transmedia" isn't a new phenomenon. Both P3 and P4 gained manga adaptations, and an original anime series with links to Persona 3, Persona: Trinity Soul was aired some years ago (and recently licensed by NIS America).

So...are you excited? Unhappy that this isn't a Persona 5 announcement, or are you still waiting for the inevitable announcement of a Persona 4 PSP port? C'mon, all the other games got one, after all.

Dragon Dating Simulator is...well, duh, you date dragons

I'm imagining the beginning to Stand By Me, but, instead, "Hey, kid, you ever plow a dragon?"  Dragon Dating Simulator is a visual novel with a "novel-sized script" and "at least" four dragons (two male, two female...more
