  • 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.

    A very disappointing adaptation
    There is no reason at all to watch this anime, so long as the game still exists.

    Given the history of Persona anime adaptations I went into Persona 5 the Animation with tempered expectations. However, I was still hopeful that the anime would turn out to be a decent alternative to replaying the entire game over just to enjoy the story again. Sadly this anime adaptation misses the mark and ...

  • 3 stars for the art and idea
    3 stars for the art and idea...the rest feels like an old anime with very slow and bad action. After 5 episodes, I still can't watch anymore,
    I found it pretty boring, too bad, I wanted to like it.

    Why are we forced to write long reviews here!!???

  • 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 ...
