CloverWorks has managed to follow the consistent release of two sets of special episodes after Season 1, tells that the studio and the team are trying its best to keep the interest alive among the fans.
The very famous action anime television 'Persona 5: The Animation' which is also known as Perusona Faibu: Ji Animēshon in Japanese is based on a video game of the same name. The game is developed by Atlus and is titled Persona 5, became the sixth installment in the Persona game franchise and became everyone's favorite after it was released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 platforms in Japan in September 2016. Not just that, fans were extremely happy when an anime special episode by A-1 Pictures was released on September 3, 2016, which was titled Persona 5 the Animation: The Day Breakers. After a couple of years later, a renowned Japanese anime studio called CloverWorks decided to adapt the game and turn it into an anime television series. Fans were in for a treat when Season 1 of Persona 5: The Animation premiered on April 8, 2018. The fact remains that this entire franchise garnered massive love and appreciation since the time it came for the first time in the form of video games, in spite of season 1 not being able to perform well as compared to its former launches, it was still enjoyed and appreciated by not just anime lovers, but also fans who loved playing the video game.
When the video game was released it was accompanied by a manga adaptation, which was written and illustrated by Hisato Murasaki, This manga adaptation began serialization on the Manga ONE app and the Ura Sunday website from September 15, 2016. It was pretty evident back then that this franchise was soaring higher with every passing year, because of which it remained active, either in the form of series or games. And fans now want to know when can see the second season. Here's everything we've gathered about the renewal.
'Persona 5: The Animation Season 1' consisted of 26 episodes that premiered on April 8, 2018, and continued till September 30, 2018. Then on December 31, 2018, CloverWorks released two special episodes under the title 'Persona 5: The Animation TV Specials. The studio continued bombarding anime fans with spectacular special episodes, and soon it released two more episodes under the title Persona 5: The Animation Specials on May 29, 2019. Even though the hype got stronger every time, Persona 5: The Animation hasn't been officially renewed for a second season. However, this does not shut doors for its renewal as CloverWorks has plenty of time on its hand to announce and work on the second installment of the show.
Another quite legit thing to consider if we are talking about the renewal is, since Persona 5: The Animation is based on a game franchise and also is blessed with a manga series that is still running, there is no way the production team and the creators have any dearth of source and materials which would be required to build a second installment. Following that, the fact that CloverWorks has managed to follow the consistent release of two sets of special episodes after Season 1, tells that the studio and the team are trying its best to keep the interest alive among the fans.
Well the Persona 5 anime preview was interesting. I'll definitely check out the season when it starts. Still on the fence about playing the game, though. pic.twitter.com/tunAAlYa1v— Haley Whisennand (@HeyItsHales) December 29, 2017
Even though no date has been blocked for the release of the second season of 'Persona 5: The Animation' we have already gone through huddling up all the factors and proves that assures us its renewal. Therefore, if we go with our intuition, then we know that Persona 5: The Animation Season will be happening soon, and if we go with our guess, then it is believed that we can see Persona 5 the Animation season 2 in next spring, sometime in April-May 2021. However, in the worst-case scenario, the premiere might take place only after the new video game is released.
The full voice cast for Persona 5 the Animation includes Jun Fukuyama as the main character Ren Amamiya, Mamoru Miyano as Ryuji Sakamoto, Ikue Otani as Morgana, Nana Mizuki as Anne Takamaki, Tomokazu Sugita as Yusuke Kitagawa, Rina Satou as Makoto Niijima, Aoi Yūki as Futaba Sakura, Haruka Tomatsu as Haru Okumura, and Sōichiro Hoshi as Goro Akechi.
