Unlike the primary season of Persona 4 the Animation which was licensed and published by Sentai Filmworks in North America, it was Aniplex of America who acquired the rights to its sequel: Persona 4 the Golden Animation.

Following the official video-on-demand simulcast run by the company in 2014, Aniplex of America are prepared to release the 12-episode series in North America starting from July 2015. Rather than release all 12-episodes in one volume, like how must other series seem to be treated nowadays, Persona 4 the Golden Animation will be released across two six episode volumes – one being released on July 21st and the other to be released on September 29th.

The bad news is that Aniplex of America have decided NOT to dub the anime, unlike Sentai Filmworks who got almost the entire video game cast in to voice their respective characters. Those who prefer the Japanese dub however will feel right at home, with the original voice cast reprising their roles.

Each volume is set to be available on Blu-ray exclusively, as part of special volumes which come at a slightly higher cost but have a few extra goodies to somewhat justify the price. Volume 1 will contain an original soundtrack CD (Vol. 1), a deluxe 24 page booklet and a postcard set. The second volume will come with similar types of items, with the second half of the original soundtrack CD and a bonus Mini-episode as well. Both volumes come with an SRP of $99.98 apiece.
