For me the game is a masterpiece.
This one was just "good". The pacing was rushed which I was expecting and the animations were not consistent during the episode. Some segments felt like they had very good quality and some felt like average.
Glad they are sticking with the same scenarios as the game too and that they kept the finale for another special ep coming in march.
I recommend it for all persona 5 fans that already played the game, yea it won't be as iconic as the game but you will relive the memories that the game left in you.

Ok guys, I really tried to be positive, I went open minded to see the episode but... Is P5A what are we talking about.

The direction and the pace were as bad as always. The animation wasn't that bad but it's still nothing remarkable and impressing and has the same problems that the original series had. Then we have the clip collection of the group exploring the palace. I hate this ...
