    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.

    Updated review: Fun anime, takes a bit to get better.
    Update: This is written after 14 episodes.
    I'll try to not spoil, but this might be a little hard to understand if you are just starting to watch the anime.
    As always, please try to play the game. I suggest it as the actual 'dungeons' they go into are very elaborate and the anime isn't giving them justice. Also, there is a lot of story there that they might not go into.

    I am changing my ...

    Don't give up after 1 episode!
    Starting off this reminds me greatly of Persona 4 the Animation. When it comes to working with the source material, it's pacing is different, but that isn't a bad thing at all. The Persona games are long games with a ton of content so pacing has to be different or the show would never end like Naruto. The first episode gives roughly the same amount of information about the plot and story as the ...

    Edited following episode 2. They were holding out on us!
    Okay, THAT'S more like it. I don't know why Aniplex was holding out on us for the first episode! I don't know, maybe the production studio didn't have all the team together for the first ep? It's weird, but episode 2 takes a MASSIVE jump in production quality.
    The Persona series, and ESPECIALLY Persona 5 have been known for having awesome art direction, style, and album-worthy music... and while ...

    Persona 5 (PS4) Stole my heart! P5A Stole it again!!
    TLDR : A must watch for anyone that likes anime in general.

    Don't forget to watch the post credits on each episode!

    The storytelling on P5A felt a bit rushed out, after all there a lot of scenes that are thoroughly explained on the game and here they cut to the point, but isn't something that will compromise the full comprehension of the plot.

    Those that didn't play the game ...

    Watch if, you don't have the game!
    I've watched both Persona 4 the anime and 5, and let me tell you, the anime kept me wanting to watch more.

    I'm sure it's a little disappointing for those who have played the game, but man... if you've never played the game like I have, you'll definitely want to play it.

    I'm about to go buy myself a PS4, literally just to buy this game. I'm so excited.

    I can't wait for SP2: Stars and Ours!
    As said in the title, I finished this series in March, and I can't wait for SP2. I finished this a couple of minutes ago, to be specific.

    I loved the plot and the colorful cast of characters. One thing that confused me was how Ann's codename became Panther then changed to Queen.

    Either way, this anime was extremely addictive, and with its game (Game as in the core, or idea, not the ...

    I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 if I could.
    Overall, I liked the story line, concepts, art style, and music of this show.

    If I could give 4.5 out of 5, I would. Some episodes had animation mistakes and/or lazy animation techniques. Also, there were a few details that had to be answered by the people who played the video game (unlike me, who doesn't want to get a PS4). Also, there was some unnecessary filler, but not a lot (but then ...

    I Really Enjoyed It!
    I think the anime is a nice refresher type thing. its not as thoroughly detailed but it's definitely nice if someone can't afford the game or something. i just recently got royals edition and yes the games are a lot more detailed and entertaining but the anime is a good attempt and there's no harm in checking it out
