Persona 5 Anime Announced For 2018 Release in Japan
Despite being a spinoff of the Megami Tensei series, the Persona series has become a major hit in Japan and a cult favorite in the U.S. Its blending of the supernatural elements of the Megami Tensei series with its familiar high school setting has allowed it to captivate audiences worldwide. These aspects have made the franchise a cultural touchstone in Japan, so naturally the franchise has been adapted into anime series several times already. Now, players of Persona 5 can experience the events of the game in a new way with the newly announced Persona 5 anime series.
The teaser trailer for the new series was posted by pKjd on Dailymotion, after being released first by Atlus on Anime New Network’s region-locked YouTube channel. The series is titled Persona 5 The Animation and is being produced by Atlus in partnership with A-1 Pictures for a 2018 release in Japan. It is not yet know where the series will air in Japan, or even if a Western release is being considered, but considering that the prequel anime Persona 5: The Day Breakers has been made available on Western streaming services, fans should keep their hopes alive and their demand for the series heard.
It also appears that the original Japanese cast from the Persona 5 game will return to voice act in the new game, including Jun Fukuyama as the Protagonist. Hopefully fans enjoy this take on a game that has delighted many so far. What do you guys think about the new Persona 5 anime series? What aspects from the game do you want to see in anime form?
