    Persona 5 the Animation is one of the best anime's this spring has to offer so far!
    Persona 5 the Animations is, as the title suggests, and animation following the plot of the worldwide popular best-selling JRPG, Persona 5! Currently, when this review releases, the first episode is the only that has been made available, the others will be released at every Saturday at 1:00 PM ECT. I have several things I wish to talk about in this review so I will break it up in to several ...

    so many good things about the anime
    I've finished the game a couple months ago and it quickly became one of my most favorite games. When I heard an anime adaptation was going to happen, I was beyond excited and I was not disappointed. The animation quality was a LOT better than expected and kept the game's art aesthetic closely. The story so far also closely follows the game although I'm excited to see where it might differentiate ...

    Screw the game, this is a show (I'm sorry)
    Nothing against persona the game, I mean I haven't even played it. It's a pet peeve that when I see others criticizing something because it's not exactly like what it's based on, I feel like they're putting people off of something that could otherwise be enjoyable. As I have not played the game, I have an outsider perspective on this. Sure it has it's flaws, but I'm judging it by it's flaws, and ...

    Good, but not Perfect
    Some things I like, some things I don't. Some of the extra details are good, however, the animation in this is pretty rough, but the game itself also had some of these problems. The pacing is pretty ok, actually, and I would only recommend this to someone who has played the game.

    Overly condensed, too much too fast.
    As much as I want to enjoy this I can't. Maybe my opinion is skewed with having played the game but the pacing is ridiculously fast. A single episode covers ~2hrs of gameplay and while the animation, music, voice acting, etc is all very solid, trying to condense this story into 20 minute episodes just doesn't work. Persona is all about the narrative and relationships, when you condense it, you ...

    An OK show so far, curious to see more
    I did play the P5 game before, really loved it - the art style, the awesome soundtrack, the excellent English voice acting and the gameplay itself. And now I watched the first episode of this game's adaptation. Overall it's not a bad adaptation so far - the art style is very similar and the story seem to follow the game's story fairly accurate. The first episode does feel rushed, especially how ...

    Good Show, Bit quick, But good.
    the first episode is quite rushed. but since i played the game, i already knew what would happen and that is why it felt rushed to me. if you don't have the game, watch the anime because it wont seem quite so fast to you, as you dont know what's supposed to have gone down. i did that with P4A and P4GA, and i thought that the anime was great. still haven't played P4 (as much as i'd like to). all in ...

    The long wait comes to an end
    I've been waiting for this ever since the game came to America I am so happy !!! The fact that it's her makes me so happy it even got me into the persona animations that is how satisfied I am with this series coming out. I hope that it can thrive and maybe even surpass the game its self I know it that this is going to be fun.

    like watching someone's gameplay
    Brilliant!! I have been waiting for this since I heard about it and played the game. It didn't disappoint!!! It was as if I was watching someone's gameplay on YouTube. Well....maybe one gripe...over too SOON!!! I loved Persona 4, but that felt a bit detached from the game. This felt like you were thrown into the game itself. Can't wait for next episode!! <3

    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 ...
