If we hear the word “Persona”, the first thing that comes to mind is a dating game simulation mixed with turn-based RPG action. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona is a video game series developed by Atlus and is a spin-off of the original series. Persona itself is a spin-off series that can be said to be popular with the Social Link feature. This feature appeared in the Persona 3 series which was released in 2006 and is a major part of the game. Persona has also recently released an animated series, namely The Animation. On August 18, 2020 Funimation through their Twitter account, announced about Persona 5 The Animation.

This announcement has actually been “coded” since Aniplex will release Blue-Ray Persona 5 The Animation next month. In the Blue-Ray there is an English Dub version too, from that it is very clear that Funimation has a license to stream this animation.
Persona 5 The Animation is an animation directed by Masashi Ishihama and has been broadcast on Japanese TV in April 2018 – March 2019. Funimation will bring 26 episodes of Persona 5 The Animation along with 2 special episodes namely “Dark Sun” and “Stars and Ours” for aired starting August 18, 2020 in the United States and Canada.
