The official website for A-1 Pictures' television anime of Atlus' Persona 5 game revealed a new visual for the anime on Wednesday. The visual highlights the character Ryuji Sakamoto (voiced by Mamoru Miyano).
Like the previous visual, the anime's official website features the "The world will be stolen by them" tagline on the visual. The previously revealed visual showed main character Ren Amamiya standing at Tokyo's iconic Shibuya Crossing intersection.
The voice cast members from the game are reprising their roles for the anime. Masashi Ishihama (From the New World, Kamichu!) is directing Persona 5 the Animation, and the game franchise's producer Katsura Hashino is credited with the original story concept. Satomi Ishikawa (Convenience Store Boy Friends) is adapting Shigenori Soejima's original game character designs for animation. Kazuma Kaneko is credited for having drawn the original demon designs from the game. Shinichi Inotsume (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-, Hayate the Combat Butler, Sket Dance) is in charge of the series scripts. Shōji Meguro is returning from the game to compose the anime's music.
The anime will premiere in April on the Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, MBS, and BS11 channels.
