Introduction

It is spring, and second-year high schooler Ren Amamiya is transferring schools and enters Shunjin High School in Tokyo. After a certain event, his ‘Persona’ awakens. He joins the group ‘Phantom Thieves of Hearts’ who possess the same powers. They are stealing ill intent from adults’ hearts. Mysterious mental runaway incidents occur one after another in the streets. During the daytime, Ren is just a normal high school student living his everyday life in the big city of Tokyo and after school, he operates as a member of ‘Phantom Thieves of Hearts’. A magnificent picaresque-style anime is about to begin.

Adaptation

The anime is based on the popular 2016 RPG game Persona 5, produced by Atlus for the PS3 and PS4. As well as being the sixth instalment of the Persona Series, it is also part of the larger Megami Tensei series. It was released in the English-language in spring 2017. It is indirectly related to the other entries in the series, so can be enjoyed even by beginners into the Persona franchise.
