Upcoming TV animation ‘Persona 5: the Animation’ has unveiled a new key visual. The new visual depicts Yusuke Kitagawa. In the anime, Tomokazu Sugita will be casting this character. Furthermore, it was earlier announced that the anime will premiere on 7th April 2018 via Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, MBS, and BS11. The anime will consist of 24 episodes.
Persona 5: the Animation is a work based on the widely popular game, Persona 5. Katsura Hashino is the author of the original story. It has Akira Kurusu as the main character while Ren Amamiya will be the main character in the anime. I am not sure if this is the only change. Therefore, we have to wait and see how this is going to turn out. A-1 Pictures is the studio producing this anime.

What We Can Expect
Firstly let me start by saying that the characters are very interesting, hence I really look forward to watching it. In addition, the anime touches upon the themes of action, fantasy, and supernatural, all of which I definitely love. Persona 5, game version was met with critical acclaim for its story and art and more. I have read game reviews that the character interaction is the best thing of them all. Therefore I have huge expectations on this anime.
The art is very good while the music seems to be up to the mark. I get a feeling that this anime is going to be almost perfect. Rather than focusing on elaborate supernatural themes, we do need the production team to focus on the plot. A great plot makes a great watch by itself.
Finally, I can conclude by saying that this anime must surely make it into your watchlist. If action genre interests you even the slightest, you should give this anime a try.
