Persona -trinity soul- (ãƒšãƒ«ã‚½ãƒŠ ãƒˆãƒªãƒ‹ãƒ†ã‚£ãƒ»ã‚½ã‚¦ãƒ«, Perusona Toriniti SÅru?) is a Japanese anime TV series. It is the sequel to the PlayStation 2 game Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3, taking place ten years after its events. Produced by Aniplex and animated by its A-1 Pictures animation studio, the series is slated to premiere in Japan on MBS, Tokyo MX and Animax from January 2008. It will feature music by Taku Iwasaki.
The stage is set in Ayanagi City, a city near the Sea of Japan. Ayanagi is a futuristic city that was built to carry out the recovery from the calamity caused by the “Apathy Syndrome” ten years ago. The series begins with high school student Shin Kanzato, with his little brother Jun, meeting with their elder brother RyÅ, who is chief of the Ayanagi City Police, again after ten years. At that time, a series of strange incidents happen in Ayanagi City: the crew of a submarine suddenly disappears while they are in the vessel; a spiritless symptom disturbs the world again after ten years; the case of the inside out corpse where a student took on a cruel appearance. While RyÅ tracks down the organization behind the string of incidents, Shin, having become involved in the incidents, awakens the “Persona”. [ wiki ]
