  • Such an awesome anime :)
    Whhhyy does this show have such a low rating!? I'd never heard of it until the Crunchyroll persona quiz was posted. The results made me curious about the anime so I looked it up. Usually I won't watch anything less than 4.5 stars but I am really glad I chose this one. With an original plot, this anime is definitely one to indulge. The way it is put together keeps it very interesting. It doesn't ...

  • If you really don't have the time to play the game, or watch a let's-play...
    Persona 5 is an amazing game with an amazing story, and I believe it is something that everyone should experience at least once simply for how relevant it is and always will be. However, this review is not about that game. This adaptation tries to make itself as much like the game as possible, for better or for worse. Multiple gameplay elements, such as the random encounters and the all-out attack ...

  • Game Fanservice With Flair
    The persona series of animes, at least three, four and five, are above average animes, in general, without having played the games. However, if you have had the privilege to play the games, these are a delight to watch. Persona 5 is one of the best Persona games I have played and I am hoping that this series surpasses 4 as a stand-alone anime. So far, the Persona 5 team have been cramming 10s ...

    Too Broke to Play The Game?
    I hate seeing all of these "just play the game!" comments. I understand that the game is probably so much better than the anime, but some of us are too broke to play the game! The show's good if you haven't played the game, but I think most of the magic of the show would be out shined by the game. The show's still good, but some characters don't get enough screen time.

    Its pretty good IF youve played the game
    I found this to be enjoyable to watch. It felt like a summary of the game but if you do not know what is happening it would be hard to follow. Not recommended to people who havent played. If you have played it, then youll be able to follow along even though it seems to jump around a bit from places to characters

  • Needs to Work on Pacing
    As someone that played P5 for 200+ hours:

    Pro

    Music: faithful to the game plus the opening theme song is done by same artist as the game music. Honestly, the music is one of the things I enjoyed most about playing Persona 5.

    Plot: Sticks to game plot with some new scenes. Nice to see other things besides those rehashed in game.

    Cons or Stuff that Needs Work:

    Pacing: ...

    Never Played The Game, But The Anime Is Disappointing As Heck
    I never played the game, so I can't speak to anything in relation to that, but the anime as a standalone piece of media, fails. The voice acting and animation aren't bad, but the story line doesn't really exist. Making it so far as episode 6, there wasn't a single trial, tribulation, or anything I could call genuine character growth or development. I don't feel for the characters, if someone ...

  • Good idea, bad execution
    Just about everyone here knows A-1 isn't exactly the best when it comes to animating. Persona 4TA looks and feels better than this. While not absolutely horrible the pacing is too fast and some of the animation is just BAD and rushed. The sad part about all this is that Persona is a series known for it's quality and this anime does it a disservice.

  • Not for Those Who Played the Game (As of Episode 11)
    Let me get this out first: This is not for people who played the game, or those who plan on playing it. Since Persona 5 is a Play Station exclusive, not everyone will have the ability to "just play the game."

    Now, coming off of that, let's talk about the show, Persona 5: The Summary.

    Story: The first 4 episodes are poorly paced, making this a confused, jumbled mess that starts to ...

  • Did we really need an anime adaption?
    Truth be told, I love this game series but the animation is... stale at best.

    Persona 5 is a great game and a unique experienced that can only be conveyed in that format. This animated series for it felt rushed and incomplete in storytelling and while it did have great visuals-- it was not enough to convince me to keep following the series. A lot of the character relationship felt 'fake' in ...
