I think the OP and ED need to be switched around. >_>

I'm one of the few people who personally liked the opening theme and thinks it fits the series' tone very well. It's true that first impressions of this song are bad but once you'll watch the series itself, you'll get used to it and believes it wasn't bad. I really liked the PV's but I can't say much about it though besides the theme songs which were good in itself but most people think on how much they are placed are bad. Anyway, another reason for me to watch this are the cast, Airi and the Anguished One.

I heard that the series is only 1 cour. Is it true? I hope this is not true. There won't be enough time for character development for all.

with danga ronpa coming out in the season after, it would be very unlikely that this series is 2-cour

To be fair, the character development in the game isn't all it's cracked up to be. I ask myself, do I really want to watch some of these character arcs when they basically have no contextual bearing on the main plot? Discounting the "main" characters like Io, Daichi, Yamato, AO, even Ronaldo, do i really want to watch an episode of
Spoiler for character spoilers:


Basically, I'm burnt by the way they handled Social Links in Persona 4. The plot called for it in the end, sure, but I now see there really wasn't a contextual need to cover every single one.

But 1 season still seems awfully tight to get through the entirety of the main plot. It'll basically turn it into a monster of the week show

It depends on the ending. If they go with the Restorer ending, then it's pretty important because it shows how much they changed.


But yeah, with the low episode count I'm not expecting anything other than some nice fanservice. Give me my Operation Box, Fumi laptop barrage, Airi belly button, and a MC that chooses all the funny answer choices and I'll be content.

Well, ignoring Jungo, other characters like Makoto and Yuzuru have involving background. Aside from that, there are 2-3 important fights every day (end of day and midday when you need to save some named character). 1 cour anime would require 2 fights per day. Add in time for character developments, that's like watching on fast forward.

Oh well, I'll just shut up and enjoy the ride. At worst the animation looks pretty, the music sounds good, and if it does well, maybe desu 1 - whose story would I like better - would be animated

EDIT: I've just realized from spoiler that ep 4 is still on the 2nd day. It's good that they are not rushing, but that means the anime would have shorter time allocation for the last few days

I don't mind the song at all but it doesn't fit the trailer footage at all imo.

I don't see why this should affect anything. It would not be the first time a director had two series running concurrently.

Is anything more concrete, like a press release, a DVD volume count or syboi schedule?

He's not Shinbo who's just director by name only. Most directors work directly with the actual projects instead of just overseeing them

Yeah, it has been confirmed on Showgate's English page, along with a couple of other spring/summer shows being 1 cour long.

Now that's disheartening to know, sure hope they got the pacing down right because this could very easily turn ugly if they rush the climax.

The thing that worries me most is that according to the spoilers,

Persona 4 ended up being a 2-cour show, so let's hope they'll do the same thing here.

Persona 4 was confirmed as a 25 episode show from the start. This show is confirmed as a 13 episode show from the start.

Which why I'm not going to have any expectations for the plot.

I'll just take it as fanservice and enjoy my Operation Box.

SMT really deserves an adequate adaptation for once. Is that so much to ask?
