Usually, you never see it coming, but this time we did. As most of us have come to expect, Persona 5 has garnered so much popularity that it is now getting it’s own animated TV series in Japan for 2018. We have already seen a previous attempt at this in the Persona 5 – The Day Breakers animation, but this one will be a full-on series. The show will be animated by A-1 Pictures and will be voiced by everyone in the original Japanese cast. In terms of the story, it is safe to assume that it will be based around the story of the game, rather than an original thing.
Hero (Akira Kurusu): Jun Fukuyama
Ann Takamaki: Nana Mizuki
Ryuji Sakamoto: Miyano Mamoru
Morgana: Ikue Otani
Yusuke Kitagawa: Tomokazu Sugita
Makoto Niijima: Rina Sato
Futaba Sakura: Aoi Yūki
Haru Okumura: Haruka Tomatsu
Goro Akechi: Soichiro Hoshi
Obviously, I think this piece of news is pretty awesome. We haven’t truly seen anything about the animation itself, but rather a small and very good-looking teaser. However, if The Day Breakers is anything to go by, then I think it might turn out pretty good. I look forward to watching it after I beat the game for myself.
