PERSONA -trinity soul- Information Compendium!

Postby noexcusepunk » Fri Mar 19, 2010 10:14 pm

Thought I'd go ahead and start an information thread about the anime in case anyone was wondering what on earth it's about in the future.
If anyone has any other info they'd like added to the main body of my post, just let me know in this thread or PM me. And if anyone knows who the English cast is going to be, DEFINITELY let me know and I'll add them on as I left it blank.
Basic Info
Image
Persona: Trinity Soul is an anime TV series which is part of the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series. It sets in the parallel world of PlayStation 2 game Persona 3, taking place ten years after its events. Produced by Aniplex and animated by its A-1 Pictures animation studio, the series premiered in Japan on MBS, Tokyo MX and Animax from January 2008. It also features music by Taku Iwasaki. On February 11, 2010, NIS America announced it would release Persona: Trinity Soul in North America.

Story

The story is based in Ayanagi City, which faces the Sea of Japan. It's a futuristic city that survived the outbreak of "Mass Apathy Syndrome" ten years ago. Shin Kanzato (17) and his brother Jun (14) meet their eldest brother Ryo (28), who is a young Chief Officer at Ayanagi City's police station, for the first time in ten years.

Meanwhile, the city is facing a string of mysterious incidents. Ship crew members disappear from their underwater submarine. The Apathy Syndrome resurfaces, much like ten years ago. The Reverse case, a series of student murders, intensifies. Ryo investigates an organization involved in all of the above incidents. One of these incidents results in the awakening of Shin's Persona. The wheel of fate begins to turn for this family of brothers.

For right now there is no English voice cast to any of the anime series that NISA has right now. Maybe if these sell well we might later on kind of like how Sentai is now giving out English dubs to Clannad, Tears to Tiara, and also getting back the English voice cast from Appleseed: Ex Machina for the original Appleseed for the new Blu-ray release.

Anyways though I love Persona especially Persona 3 FES, and Persona 4 so really looking forward to this series.
