A welcome bit of news for the UK anime fans who have a hard time getting anime TV series on Blu-ray there due to low sales. The folks at Kaze UK were asked recently about the release of Persona 4: The Animation, which is getting a dub and Blu-ray release in the US from Sentai Filmworks, and they responded noting that they will be providing the dub as well with hopes to get the first part out before the end of the year if things come together well with what Sentai is up to. They also confirmed that there will be a UK Blu-ray release as well. With the Persona 4 property a big name, it makes the most sense for this one to go as wide as possible.
– Any news on Persona 4: The Animation?
– Yes, scheduling now, hoping for Part 1 before end of 2012 just checking dub schedule first.
– And is that going to be on Bluray?
– Yes :).
Plot Concept: 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 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.
