There is a new urban legend circulating Tokyo. It claims that if you make a request in the Ask-a-Thief Channel, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts will show up and bring justice by stealing a corrupt person's heart and making them regret all their wrongdoings. As strange and inexplicable events continue to happen all around town, more people submit their requests in hope that the mysterious vigilante group will help.

Kazuya Makigami is a burglar by night, but has started to have second thoughts about his crimes and those who help him commit them. Unable to stand up to his comrades himself, Kazuya submits a request to the Ask-a-Thief Channel.

Okay, why is this SINGLE episode of a Mementos Side Quest better than any of the garbage they put out for the actual anime?

The Daybreakers special is not anything too climactic, or even exciting or interesting. It is an episode following a Mementos Request (essentially small-scale palace runs, if you played the game you would know), and basically a single battle showing how it all goes down.

As someone who has played the game, it is (for lack of a better term) a deeper dive into how the PTs gain info on their Mementos target in order to confirm if the request on the Phan-Site is ...

After finishing Persona 5 on my Playstation 4, I found it really hard to say goodbye to the Phantom Thieves. Because of this, I continued my journey through Persona 5 Strikers, Persona Q2 and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight. It wasn't enough. I read the three Mementos Mission mangas, kept returning to the game's fantastic OST, and watched nearly every "hot take" video essay on YouTube. Eventually, I ended up watching this OVA. While it did not take my heart, it did help me move on to different forms of entertainment.

Now, the above is not to say that I did not enjoy The Day Breakers. ...

Honestly, i don't know why there are some many 7s or even 8s. This OVA is just one adaptation of one of the sidequest you can do in the game source (and a uninteresting one in my opinion). As a stand alone product it fails because you need to have played to game to understand it and as content for the players it's pretty boring because it focus too much on irrelevant characters and tries too hard to make the heroes looks cool without them doing anything remarkable until the only (and final) battle. By the way, the ending doesn't make any sense at all, ...
