The Persona 5 the Animation page on the Animate store chain's website lists 12 volumes for the anime's Blu-ray Disc and DVD releases. According to the listing, the first volume (pictured right) will have two episodes, although the other volumes' episode counts are not public yet.
The anime adaptation of the Persona 5 role-playing game 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 voice cast members from the game are reprising their roles for the anime.

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. Lyn is performing the opening theme song "Break in to Break Out" and the ending theme song "Infinity."
