Atlus has unveiled that the next entry into the Persona series will also be receiving its own anime adaptation, though many are hoping that this anime will not be the first step in a long line of Persona 5 content that will prevent a new game in the franchise (which happened with Persona 4).

An announcement PV:

The adaptation will be animated by A-1 Pictures and the seiyuu from the game will be reprising their roles for the anime; Persona 5 is slated to debut sometime in 2018.

    It was to be expected and I am really excited about this.

    A-1. Expecting quality drops and nothing stylistically similar to the game.

    They did the Daybreakers animation and that was quite good...A-1 is very hit or miss. Some of their series are great, some aren't. It really depends on who there specifically is working on it and what the budget is. It seems like they have the A team on this so it could be quite good. It's not like Atlus doesn't have the money from the game to fund this.

    Oh, they also did the Person 3 movies, which were all very good and consistently high quality.

    It's gonna be a disappointment since it's A-1...

    These Persona anime and movies don't work because without the gameplay to keep you engaged you rapidly realize their stories suck. Not to mention that like half the fun of Persona is romancing and going out on dates with the girls, an aspect the anime and movies completely ignore.

    Dunno about the others Persona games (never played them) but 5's story isn't great. I think 5 is more about the personal relationships between the characters than the obvious "twists" which most people see way ahead of time.

    It's just not cleverly done. Having characters literally tell everything to each other as a way to divulge information to the audience is a very dull delivery method. Although you can probably argue that games rely on that method a lot.

    I'm too stupid for this, but if the org.cut scenes were made by Production I.G why does Atlus call in A-1?
    The same thing happened to the Ace Attorney series where even the pachinko cut scenes looked far superior then to the anime show.

    I mean it can't be all blamed to cost, right?

    Production I.G doesn't seem to do as much for Anime as with games, so they likely weren't horribly interested honestly. That or they could have been busy.

    A-1 also did The Day Breakers animation for Persona 5 already, so they're familiar with the series/animation and such and Atlus was probably happy with that work.

    Honestly there's plenty of people who seem more optimistic of A-1 from The Day Breakers than with Production I.G who's forte is more short cutscenes in games. Some people found the P5 cutscenes to be some of the worst parts of the game.

    A-1 isn't "bad", they have plenty of really good high quality work that they've done, it just depends on who is working on it and the budget. They're a big studio that does a lot of projects.

    Nice but please don't be like the OVA and try to forcefully implement game mechanics that don't convert well into the anime

    >and the seiyuu from the game will be reprising their roles for the anime
    If they intend to also show the confidants... Chihaya? ;-;

    Other than that, looking cool J--DELETED BY ADMIN--

    so long as it's not as bad as that garbage P4 anime we got, I'm down for this, P5 was great. Not expecting anything though.

    Yeah, the anime adaptations of both Persona 3 and 4 were kinda horrible, totally not representing the games. Persona 3 did slightly better, although it suffers greatly because they had to rush things.

    But Persona 5 (the game I mean) was voted the best RPG of all time in Famitsu, and Persona 4 Golden got 14th place. And honestly I'd say both are in my personal top 5 list as well.

    Yeah, I don't think anyone trusts Famitsu.

    What the hell, that Umbrella Corps score! Okay, disregard Famitsu, Persona 5 is still fucking awesome.

    Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps
    One of the worst games of all time

    Famitsu score: 36/40.

    The Witcher 3
    One of the best games of all time

    Famitsu score: 37/40. (this is accurate)

    You just cannot take this magazine seriously.

    Famitsu votes anything as best of all time as long as enough money comes their way. They are well known for being bought by the big japanese companies.

    P4 anime garbage? Are you insane?

    P4 is garbage in general. P3/5 had a cast that was facing imminent death or social destruction. P4's cast was a bunch of kids that were just too scared of being teased by their peers. P4 is gay as fuck
