posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for A-1 Pictures' television anime of Atlus' Persona 5 game revealed a new visual on Thursday featuring Haru Okumura (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu).

The website previously revealed visuals for the protagonist Ren Amamiya (voiced by Jun Fukuyama), Ryuji Sakamoto (voiced by Mamoru Miyano), Morgana (voiced by Ikue Ōtani), Anne Takamaki (voiced by Nana Mizuki), Yusuke Kitagawa (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita), Makoto Niijima (voiced by Rina Satō), and Futaba Sakura (voiced by Aoi Yūki).

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. Shoji Meguro is returning from the game to compose the anime's music.

The anime will premiere on April 7 at 24:30 (effectively April 8 at 12:30 a.m.) on the Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, and BS11 channels. The show will also stream at that time simultaneously in Japan on the AbemaTV service. MBS will then air the anime at 26:08 (2:08 a.m.), and GyaO! will begin streaming the series on April 9 at 12:00 p.m. Aniplex of America has licensed the series for North America.
