Persona 5 the Animation: Prologue

Persona 5 the Animation will finally air tomorrow, after months of excitement. As a special treat, we can now watch 6 minutes of the anime (video below!). The internet is raving over it already, and anticipation is at an all-time high!

Amamiya Ren has moved in Tokyo and is under probation, watched over by Sojiro Sakura. After a particular incident, he stumbles upon another dimension and his Persona awakens. As per the in-game story, he forms the Phantom Thieves of Hearts with his friends, to reform the hearts of corrupt adults by stealing the source of their distorted desires. Meanwhile, bizarre crimes have been happening in Tokyo...

While I was more familiar with in-game and manga name Kurusu Akira, the name Amamiya Ren was actually announced during a live stream last year. It follows the pattern of previous Persona protagonists having multiple names, such as Narukami Yu/Seta Souji from P4, and Arisato Minato/Yuki Makoto from P3. That being said, the other characters retain the same names as their game counterparts! In fact, Ann and Ryuji will appear in the very first episode, as screencaps on the official site shows, just like how they show up in-game quickly.

I can't wait for the Phantom Thieves to assemble, because what a star-studded cast of seiyuus! Just look:

  • Ren Amamiya: Jun Fukuyama
  • Ryuji Sakamoto: Mamoru Miyano
  • Ann Takamaki: Nana Mizuki
  • Morgana: Ikue Otani
  • Yusuke Kitagawa: Tomokazu Sugita
  • Makoto Niijima: Rina Satoh
  • Futaba Sakura: Aoi Yuki
  • Haru Okumura: Haruka Tomatsu
  • Goro Akechi: Soichiro Hoshi

Meanwhile, as we wait, it's time for some Akira/Ren appreciation! Please feast your eyes on the glory of the best Persona protagonist (to me) yet.
