This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Atlus has announced a new TV anime for Persona 5.

The new anime is by A1-Pictures, who also handled the Persona 3 movies and Persona 4: The Golden Animationas well as Episode 0 of the Persona 5 anime later last year.

Featured above, you can view a teaser trailer for the anime (we re-uploaded it to our video player as the YouTube version is region-blocked). The Japanese voice cast from the game will be reprising their roles in the anime. A premiere is set for sometime next year.

In case you missed it, you can find our thorough written and video review for Persona 5 here (we highly recommend it!).

    Well, hopefully the quality’s not shit this time around.

    Why cheap out on easy merch advertising money?

  • Mr0303

    Didn’t play the game, but I may check out the anime.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    To nobody’s surprise. I’ll look forward to the new music though.

  • i’m just waiting for the inevitable Persona 5 “Crimson” or whatever they call the next re-release “Golden” or whatever else. We all know it’s gonna happen. They said they wouldn’t do that with P4, and look what they did. Now they’ve said they aren’t gonna do it with P5, so I guess we’ll see. But it’s worth noting P4 got an anime after its initial game release, then after the anime came P4G, then THAT got an anime as well. So we’ll see ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    come now, we all saw this COMIIIIINNNG! (sorry, I had to)

  • Anonymoose

    With how the P$ TV show went, to not make the P5 one would be to give up free money.

  • Ace

    Nice. Give us another Nanako episode.

  • Personaknight

    So when is that picturest animated persona 2 eternal punishment or Ibunroku megami Persona anime happening?

  • Snorlaxation

    Never. But I’ll still dream about it.

  • Matz

    The milking begins, let’s get prepared for Persona 5 Crimson, Persona Q2 (P3 + P4 + P5), Persona 5 Arena: We still can’t include Door-Kun cuz plot reasons even when we are including a bunch of characters that have no place in the plot, Persona 5 Dancing All-Night, Persona 5: Racing in Mementos, Sae Niijima: Ace Prossecutor, Persona 5 Crimson Anime, etc

    Actually, from all that milking I wouldn’t mind a Persona 5 Arena, preferably if they use Guilty Gear graphical style, that would be great

    Persona Q2 confirmed
