I hate that MAL updated this to include both OVAs because it means I need to delete my review and rewrite it. Anyway, thank you for upvoting my previous review to the top spot and I appreciate every single person that takes their time to read what I write.

So without further ado, hoy lads. Welcome back to the review. On today's episode, I will show you how to mostly repost your “how to hack into the Pentagon whilst only using Futaba's social link” review for P5 The Animation Specials.

It's the same crap as the 26 episode anime. It's an uninspired mess of a brilliant read more

HAHAHAHAHA IS THIS FUCKING *COMEDY*? BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE IT! Jesus, I was wrong to place my hope on Cloverworks.


But seriously, this was bad! Let me get started with the plot in this special episode. It adapts the 2nd to last arc, and guess what? Wait, no, you don't need to guess because the answer is clear, they handled it horribly, well, I mean the post credits scene is good, but the rest, nuh-uh. They gave no explanations and just rushed through it! And GUESS MORE WHAT? Joker is the only one that is important here, read more

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.

Well, well, I've never played any personas, so I'll only evaluate them as an anime. Overall it was quite disappointing, I had really enjoyed the first special, but the second/conclusion, left a lot to be desired, simply the final battle is decided with a cry of support, an invocation of a very strong "persona" who decided everything with a blow, besides those classic phrases of effect that have no effect at all, because we agree, are very bland, honestly, it seemed like generic anime that has no idea for a battle or for the construction of a dialogue, another negative point were the characters that read more
