|So I just finished the first episode of Persona 5 the Animation. It is a spring 2018 anime. The first episode just aired a couple days ago, on April 8, 2018.
If you haven't heard of Persona 5, it is also an award winning video game; the one that this anime was adapted from. I myself haven't played the video game, but am slightly familiar with the Persona universe.
I really enjoyed the first episode. It was a great way to cover the prologue, while saving a lot of time, but not pacing it too quickly. The scene with the Velvet room transitioning was really cool. Additionally, they kept a lot of things similar to the video game; such as the music. I really like how they introduced the characters. The supernatural effects were pretty, as far as the animation goes. The main character is likable. This first episode gave off a very mysterious feeling
I would definitely recommend reading the synopsis before starting this anime if you haven't played the game.
Overall, I have high hopes for the series. I will continue watching. Can't wait to find out more.
