  • Spoken from a Newbie
    Note: I never played persona 5, and I hadn't beaten persona 4 before this review. So, keep in mind that this is just an opinion.

    If you never played this game, you may like the series and forgive the flaws. Unfortunately, I wouldn't call it flaws. It's basically, an advertisement anime for the game. We've seen this type of anime before, and it's purpose is not to please people who already ...

    Just play the actual game
    This anime is nothing but a worse done version of a game's story that is at least 10x more enjoyable by playing the actual game itself; whose graphics, animations, and character building are all far superior to this.
    This is just a waste of time...

    Just pointless overall
    I was hyped for it, but this anime has no reason to exist.
    It's Persona 5 without the immersion, lower production quality and zero character depth.

    Yes, making a game like P5 into a decent anime is very challenging. But this is just a joke. Play the game instead. Because if you haven't, this will not provide a proper representation of the story.

    This is a painfully mediocre adaptation of a fantastic game. It's amazing how A1 Pictures can take such a fun game with such a unique style like Persona 5 and make such a painfully mediocre and boring adaptation of it.

    Mother's Basement highlights the problems with it very well so just watch this if you want an idea:

    A good adaption to an amazing game
    Before you watch the anime, if you've played the game, you have to realize that they are working with 100 hours of game play. They are going to take things out and change others so they can get the story out in the time they have. So far i've enjoyed it. As someone who's played the game four times through I really appreciate the game story line. However, I can appreciate the anime as well. The ...

    Can't wait for more!
    I played and beat Persona 5. Loved the story and was worried the anime wouldn't do it justice. After watching the first episode, it seems like they really will be keep the same spirit that was in the game. It really sticks to the story, and is moving at a really good pace to cover the story. It's really nice to be able to experience it all again in a different format. I'm super stoked to see more ...

    Excellent Anime Adaptation
    Don’t listen to what other people say about it cause the opening episode is fantastic. The anime for persona games is always great and this is no different. The game was a little underwhelming as 3 and 4 are much better but it is still shaping up to be an excellent anime.

    It's still underwhelming
    The Persona 5 is a legendary JRPG, and has a pretty high standard to the anime. It doesn't mean that the anime is bad. The people who rated it under 2 stars don't understand how little time each episode gets and has to work with- plus with the little pay and stress. It's still amazing animation and sounds effects with canon choices which gives some relief on what the protagonist personality really ...

    Plot looks to be interesting but good lord SLOW DOWN!
    I’ve been wanting to play the game but I don’t have the time so I’ve been waiting for this anime. The Introduction to the plot looked good and it has a lot of potential . HOWEVER! So much information and sudden scene changes occur that I don’t understand what they are trying to tell me. I will give it a chance though and see more episodes because as I said PLOT LOOKS FABULOUS

    Great anime for an excellent game
    P5 has become one of my favorite games of all time, and the anime (so far) follows it almost to the letter, albeit a bit rushed. If you've played the game, then you already know what to expect; if you haven't, I strongly encourage you to watch till the end. I can't wait to again follow the journey of some of my most beloved video game characters as they bring down some rotten adults!
