Hoy lads, welcome to the review. On today's episode, I will show you how to hack into the Pentagon whilst only using Futaba's social link.

It's the same crap as the 26 episode anime. It's an uninspired mess of a brilliant game and it's truly just sad to watch. It's so much potential gone to waste. Also step 1, make your way to Washinton D.C. so you can use the Pentagon's free wifi.

I've written a full review on the first 26 episodes already and it mostly applies to this OVA too; pacing is off and feels gross. animation quality is poor albeit improved a tiny bit read more

Firstly I just have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to see that this thing was 51 minutes!! Thought it'd just be a normal length episode for whatever reason. anyways, I really enjoyed this special episode. Getting to see the Phantom Thieves animated again is such a treat and it gave me chills at times. Had to get through some of the more meaty talking scenes the story has but it was fine.

We finally got to see Shido's palace animated and the big Goro reveal. I think they were done well. Got to see the whole trickaroo they played on Goro too. All handled 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.

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
