Persona 4: The Animation might be one of the trickie types of adaptation: one where the narrative offers a close--is condensed--interpretation of the source material. In this case, it's Atlus' 2009 RPG which followed a group of teens as they investigated a series murders in the small town of Inaba, ultimately coming face-to-face with supernatrual menaces which were dark mirror images of our heroes.

The first half of the 26-episode series has been released in the U.S. by Sentai Filmworks and Section23 Films, and while some fans might balk at the feature-light Blu-ray, the presentation of the series is ultimately of pretty solid quality.

As Sheila Broflovski might say, "WHAT WHAT WHAT?"

Variety reports that pop-culture channel G4 -- the go-to place for video game, comic book, geeky tech, and other cool stuff that fanboys and fangirls love -- is now getting a swanky, "guy-centric" makeover, courtesy of owners NBCUniversal. Here's the scoop according to Variety (who started the "GQ" comparison that so many news sites have picked up):

"The NBCUniversal-owned cabler is undergoing a rebranding, according to sources, that could involve a name change and take G4 in a direction reminiscent of GQ, the magazine for the "modern male" whose interests span beyond the dorm room or messy bachelor pad. The guy-centric net is mulling a more sophisticated look while remaining true to its tech and vid game roots." Read More...

We brought you the full details on Section23 Films and Sentai Filmworks' domestic release of the Aniplex-produced Persona 4 animated series. Well, the September releases is losing its Japanese voice track on Blu-ray while retaining both the Japanese and English audio for the DVD release thanks to a requirement from the Japanese licensor.

The change has led Sentai to drop the suggested retail price from $69.98 to $59.98.

The press release from Sentai specified that the DVD would retain the Japanese episode commentaries but didn't specify whether this extended to the Blu-ray as well. I've followed up and will bring you any new info as it becomes available.

The 13-episode set will be available on September 18th.
