So far, this adaptation has been a massive disappointment.

A-1 pictures are known for their generic character designs and cutting corners when it comes to animation, so when adapting a game as stylistically brilliant Persona 5 it was obvious they wouldn't live up to the game’s highs. I never expected it to excel or even match the game’s quality, but with a director as talented as Masashi Ishihama (Shinsekai Yori) expectations were raised and this adaptation’s first six episodes have flown far below them.

A 100+ hour game stuffed into 24 episodes will inevitably have pacing issues, and this has its fair share. The read more

(This review contains some minor spoilers for the first couple of episodes)

Contrary to what some people are saying, I'll say that this anime is doing justice to the espectacular source material in its own way, with some flaws. Don't believe anyone saying that this is a bad adaptation of the game. In fact, this is a very good one, all things considered.

In fact, play the game yourself and see how many things they are "supposedly" rushing through according to these people, if you don't believe me, even side by side.

They didn't skip anything special at all thus far, and the only actually rushed part was read more

Saw my favorite streamer play P5 for about 140 hours. I don't especially think anything great about the franchise, but it was a super fun experience. The same thing applies with the anime. It sure is an entertaining one.

The art and animation do pretty much the perfect job on capturing the game's atmosphere. The OST is a beast and these guys are not afraid to use their songs. They play them and they play loudly. I like that. The voice acting makes this seem like Fate/zero. Whatever you may think of Fate, the voice acting was memorable as heck, and same thing applies here.
