During a Christmas Eve event, Atlus announced that Persona 5: The Animation will begin airing in Japan in April 2018.
Atlus confirmed that the original Japanese voice cast will return to voice their characters in the anime. An official site for the Persona 5 anime also launched today, including our first look at the official key art featuring the main character in Shibuya.
Also during the event, Atlus revealed (as translated by Persona Central) that the protagonist’s canon name during the anime will be Ren Amamiya. Previously, the main character was named Akira Kurusu in the official manga.
