The Japanese publisher ASCII Media Works will launch the monthly Persona Magazine on November 7. The first issue will have a 16-page feature on the Persona 4 the Animation television series that just premiered this month. The feature will include interviews with director Seiji Kishi and Daisuke Namikawa, the voice of the main character Yu Narukami.
The magazine will also run a regular column that delves into the world, characters, and game system of the original Persona game franchise. Other sections will cover the latest information on upcoming titles such as Persona 4 The Golden and the franchise's first fighting game, Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. Leading artists will contribute "tribute illustrations" in every issue. Shūji Sokabe will bring back his Persona 3 manga, which ran in Dengeki Black Maoh magazine, and the Persona 4 manga that is currently running in Dengeki Maoh magazine will have a spinoff installment in the new magazine.
The first issue will bundle an A4-size clear file with Persona 4's main character and Naoto on the front, and Risechii in a swimsuit on the back.
Sentai Filmworks is streaming Persona 4 the Animation on The Anime Network as the anime airs in Japan.
