Persona x Detective Naoto is a light novel in the Persona series. Taking place a year after the solving the murder case in Persona 4, it follows Naoto Shirogane as she attempts to solve a mystery involving a series of mysterious disappearances at a school in the Yagokoro area. Unlike the other Persona novelizations which were pitched to the Persona team,[1] the Detective Naoto project was pitched by the Persona team to Dengeki Bunko in 2009-2010 as an official spinoff with character designs created by Shigenori Soejima and the logo designed by P Studios.[2] It was later adapted into a serialized manga which shared its name.
