With a TV special out last September, we learned back in July 2017 that the Persona 5 the Animation: The Day Breakers property will be spawning a TV series in 2018. As we close in on it as part of the spring season this April, Aniplex USA has now taken the first trailer and added it to their channel and slapped on some very welcome English subtitles to it. Masashi Ishihama will be directing it based on the series composition by Shinichi Inotsume. Tomomi Ishikawa is handling the character designs and A-1 Pictures is producing the animation.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Rina Satou as Makoto Niijima
- Aoi Yuuki as Futaba Sakura
- Haruka Tomatsu as Haru Okumura
- Mamoru Miyano as Ryuji Sakamoto
- Nana Mizuki as Anne Tamamaki
- Ikue Otani s Morgana
Property Concept: The story takes place in Tokyo, the city where people’s desires intertwine. As disturbing incidents keep occurring in town, a rumor goes around that a group of people called the “Phantom Thieves of Hearts” has been reforming corrupt adults. One day, when a request letter is delivered to the “Ask the Phantom Thieves Channel,” four high school students and one black cat decide to take action.
