    the first 24 minutes are the first 2 hours of the game
    As the title suggests, the first episode covers 1 and a half to 2 hours of the game.
    This episode was quite well paced for how much they had to cram in and left just as much information as the game itself. That's right zero. Like most persona games you will probably not get much context, exposition or emotions for the characters just yet. Lets give it a couple more episodes.

    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!

    Pretty underwhelming
    In my opinion, you should only watch the anime if you have already beaten the game, the first episode is extremely rushed and doesn't capture the mystery and suspense of the game. Play the game first if you want to experience the story like it is meant to.

    Edit: We are in episode 16 now, yes I'm still watching it for some reason lol, I have pretty much the same opinion, they managed to make the ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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

    Just watch a play-through of the game instead
    All time stamps referred to in this review only refer to episode one.

    As a fan of the Persona series, the Anime adaptations have always seemed lacklustre to me. This one is no different, I'd rather just play Persona 5 for a third time than watch this. Within just the first episode we already run into some major issues, one of them being the story.

    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

    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 ...

    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 ...
