Newest Persona 4 anime trailer features poppy theme song

[As originally posted on Japanator]

A new Persona 4: The Animation trailer featuring Rise and Kanji wearing next-to-nothing? I’d say that’s exciting enough, since the last trailer was three months ago. But a trailer featuring the show’s previously-unheard opening theme song? That’s even better! What is best about the trailer is that, except for the version we’ve posted above, it’s only “aired” on the Midnight Channel at midnight every night. So cool!

The opening theme is “sky’s the limit,” sung by Shihoko Hirato, and the ending theme is “Beauty of Destiny,” also sung by Shihoko Hirato with Lotus Juice. Both songs are written by Shoji Meguro with lyrics by Lotus Juice, both of them having worked on music for the recent Persona series.

The series will last for two seasons, which is around 24-26 episodes in Japan. There’s no word on any US licensing, but NIS America made Persona: Trinity Soul on of its debut anime titles, so there’s always a chance they might license this series as well. Considering how good this trailer looks, they’d be fools not to.
