Ren Amamiya is about to enter his second year after transferring to Shujin Academy in Tokyo. Following a particular incident, his Persona awakens, and together with his friends they form the “Phantom Thieves of Hearts” to reform hearts of corrupt adults by stealing the source of their distorted desires. Meanwhile, bizarre and inexplicable crimes have been popping up one after another… Living an ordinary high school life in Tokyo during the day, the group maneuvers the metropolitan city as Phantom Thieves after hours. Let the curtain rise for this grand, picaresque story!
As someone who's played the game, I don't really see a point, it's basically a compressed version of the story. If I hadn't played the game though this would be hella confusing at times, as things are often not properly explained, or fleshed out as well as in the game due to the anime's compressed nature. I would also find it very difficult to care for any of the characters, because while in the game you can spend hours of personal time with each one, here they are kinda just thrown in. In conclusion I would only recommend it for those who want a very short, kinda footnote like version of the story of Persona 5.
Ah P5 the anime. For those who have played the game, you can tell it is a very squished version of it. Im going to go on a limb here and say that the game looks and feels better, which is obvious, considering most anime counterparts are better, but I have yet to see one this... off in visuals and storytelling than the main game. First review, don't judge.
Ok so I watched an anime...tht anime is ranked 1385th place....it is called chrome shelled regios....ughh I hated it hated it just no it was awful...so I watched dis anime which is ranked as low as the 3000s not too low but now too high.....this anime is 1000000 times better than chrome shelled regios ok I didnt play the game but dis anime is pretty good I used to think it was bad but it got better when I watched it in English idky I usually prefer the subbed but the dubbed made dis show better for me....I didnt get attached to alot of the charecters I did get attached to ren and maybe one or two others but thts it the charecters weren't tht great the storyline was pretty good tho it could've been more developed. To me did is way better than chrome shelled regios and also it's way better than dis other anime called hyouka its ranked like in the 500s.....dis anime is way underrated
