  • Not in the Slightest Disappointed
    Ok, so maybe the criticism I saw here about the fight scenes was valid, yet they still were in a different context than any other anime I've seen. It's probably a bit talky, too, but it's real, and warm and human. If I was in high school seeing this, it would give me hope for the future.

  • Loved the game, loving this too!
    I adored playing the P5 game so much, currently working on our NG+. I'm so glad with how they've taken things and I hope for more OVAs! The voice acting is awesome and I love seeing all the little details and foreshadowing that you can pick up on if you've played the game.

    Quit saying “just play the game.”
    It’s simple, we all know that the game is far more superior, you don’t need to keep saying it over and over again. However, not everyone has access to the game but they still want to support the franchise. Let them do so and be quiet! The anime is good and if they want to and/or can play the game afterwards, that’s great! It’s not that serious.

  • Never played the games, still decent show.
    I decided to watch this series after seeing a letsplay by Lost Pause for Persona5 and was curious at how well it would do compared to Persona4: the Animation. I have not played any of the Persona games, full disclaimer, so I can not compare whether this was a good adaptation of the game. Overall, this is a decent anime.
    The story and characters have to be summarized for a project of this nature, ...

    Not perfect, but good enough
    Compared to the game, p5A is rather lackluster in its execution of several sub-plots especially non-party member confidants. However, I will admit that the animation did have some positive things and memorable moments that the game did not focus on. There weren't that many but still there.

    Well, at least, Joker actually got to say some lines?

    If you have played the game, this animation ...

  • Worth a watch for fans of the game.
    If you're a fan of the videogame, this is a nicely done animated adaptation. While of course, the game is better, it is completely understandable why a 90-hour game has to be altered a slight amount for an animated series. Regardless, Persona 5 The Animation is worth a watch.

    The most boring and dry anime
    I played persona 5 and thought of it as one of the best games I’ve ever played, so I had high hopes for the anime as well, but when I did see all 26 episodes + the special, I was severely disappointed, they left out the romantic tension which means that there’s no romance, they skip so many plot points, and overall, it looks like the budget for the anime was 2 dollars, and for some reason Haru ...

    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 ...
