Persona 5 anime

Persona 5‘s best girl, Makoto, is coming to the silver screen next year. A-1 Pictures announced that they’re handling Persona 5 the Animation over at their official website. It’s the follow-up to a 30-minute, one episode adaptation called Persona 5 the Animation -The Daybreakers-, which was released alongside the game last year in Japan. This new series will premiere on television in 2018.

Check out the first teaser video below (the YouTube video is region locked, so we’re embedding this Twitter version instead):

Seeing how previous Persona anime adaptations were well done expectations will be high for Persona 5 the Animation. It also has a strong base to build off of. Here’s what we said about Persona 5 when it released earlier this year in North America via our official review:

Persona 5 is proof that few titles can compare to a truly great role-playing game. Over its 60 hour playtime I got to forge meaningful friendships with an eccentric cast of characters, discover the secrets of Tokyo, and even managed to find some nice restaurants to dine at. The time investment might seem like a lot, but rarely is time wasted when spent with friends. It doesn’t reinvent the genre, as it largely builds upon Persona 4‘s stellar base, but it adds a level of polish that is simply lacking from its contemporaries.

It’s been a good week for video game anime announcements as Steins;Gate 0‘s anime was also announced.

Persona 5 the Animation is set to release in 2018.
