Sentai Filmworks Adds Persona 4 The Animation

Sentai Filmworks made its latest acquisition announcement today via press release: Persona 4 The Animation, the anime adaptation of Atlus’ popular PlayStation 2 RPG.

Sentai will start off digitally distributing the 25-episode series through “many outlets” soon, with a DVD and Blu-ray release planned for 2012. Of course, the series has to start first, and it will be doing so October 6 in Japan. Here’s the synopsis via Sentai’s release:

When Yu Narukami’s family moves to the rural country town of Inaba, he’s expecting a lot more peace and quiet than he’s been used to in the big city.  Instead, the peace has been shattered and the only quiet is the quiet of the grave, as a rash of mysterious murders and kidnappings sweep the countryside.  With the police stymied, Yu finds himself joining with a group of eight other teenagers in a desperate bid to solve the mystery.  A mystery that is somehow connected to both the local weather patterns and a strange video game world which Yu, his friends and the enigmatic killer can all enter.  And where each must wield a unique weapon and learn to use amazing powers if they wish to survive.  Journey beyond the Velvet Room as the hit PlayStation 2™ game becomes a spectacular anime in PERSONA 4 the Animation!
