Persona 3 Anime

The Playstation 2 RPG "Persona 3" will be adapted into an anime series under the name "Persona -trinity soul-" and will premiere January 2008. The anime is set a decade after the game and will center around three brothers in a future city where the dead have risen. The "Persona" games themselves are spinoffs from the long-running "Shin Megami Tensei" series.

The team behind the anime adaptation represents a nice blend of individuals. "Blood+" episode director and animator on "Digimon" sits on the director's seat. And perhaps most importantly, the actual "Persona" games' character designer, Shigenori Soejima, will create the original character designs. According to ANN, Yasuyuki Muto (Le Chevalier D'Eon) is leading a team of writers including Shinsuke Onishi (Darker than BLACK, The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye) and Shogo Yasukawa. Nobuhiko Genma (Trouble Chocolate's contributing designer) is designing the Persona, the franchise's signature supernatural entities within humans. Taku Iwasaki (Lunar Silver Star Story Lunatic Festa Vol. 3 game, Read or Die anime) is composing the music.
