Spoiler:
I'm guessing that last scene where he's locked up is going to be the first scene in the game? At that point you'll name your character, etc? I could be wrong but the wording sounded mighty similar to the start of Persona 4 from what I remember.

If the dungeons and abilities look anything like the stuff they were doing in the fight scenes I'll be beyond happy, I loved the use of blood and the way that their personas looked. ::happy::


Mann I can't waiiit!! So hyped. >w<

Spoiler:
I was surprised with how far in it seems to throw you. It says it's a prequel story, but that would lead you to assume that it won't really introduce the others in your group in the game. I wonder if they're just going to hope you saw the anime and just play it like you already know your party members.
With P4G it starts you in the Velvet Room, so it'd be fair to say P5 will start you there as well. It's gonna be weird playing the game and hearing english voice actors after hearing everyone's voices in japanese.
I loved the scene toward the end where everyone has their moment in the spotlight to showcase their persona. It's really cool to watch them tag each other in and do the big extravagant persona summons, especially with the games battle music playing in the backround the whole time. That whole fight scene was just me and my cousin fan-boying out the entire time. Y'know I guess the whole episode in general was me and my cousin just making predictions about everything.
Like, how do they get into the phantom world place? Is it an app? How did they drag that one dude into it? How long till the boy detective is your party member? Is this dude an S.Link? How bout him or her?

I can't wait for this game to come out! I wish there were more episodes, but it seems like there will only be one according to MAL.

Finally get a look-see at the English cast for Persona 5!
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/10/19-1/atlus-usa-introduces-persona-5-english-dub-cast
I love a couple of the VA's.
I really liked Erika Harlacher as Ami (Toradora) and I believe she did the english voice for Kyoko (Danganronpa).
Cherami Leigh did the dub voice for Asuna (SAO) and voiced Komaru (Danganronpa UDG)
Cassandra Morris did Taiga (Toradora) and Leafa (SAO) as well as Aoi (Danganronpa)
All I know of Matt Mercer is Mcree (Overwatch)
Not familiar with any of the others however. I'm happy with the casting so far! Which is good considering I doubt they'll release with dual audio. What do you guys think, any stand out names in that list for you?

Yeah I don't recognize any of the names really, I just hope none of the voices are excessively annoying. They've done okay with the rest of the games tho so I think this'll probably be okay. ^^ I'm still hoping for a Japanese voice patch tho. ;-;

More Persona news! It's all coming out now ::yess::
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/10/23-1/new-persona-5-trailers-show-off-upcoming-dlc-sets
If I'm interpreting the trailers correctly the DLC packs are costumes and the BGM tracks for battle and post battle music. Costumes look cool. I like Protagonist and Ann from the first video.
They all look really similar in the second, but I think they're ok.
The third set really stuck out to me! I love all the Catherine outfits and the music for it!
I reeeeeeeally hope these come out for us as well. I'll never say no to alternate outfits in JRPGs.

Wooooooooooo! Dub trailers are rollin' in. (Constantly updating/editing for new reveals)
Spoiler:
We got one for Ann here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NF9FVxumXLk
Sounds pretty good to me! I really like how she changes the tone of her voice as soon as she changes to her phantom thief persona.

Ryuji here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR5Y8uRtWxY
I don't like it as much as Ann, but still fine. I don't like the way he says his own name, other than that sounds pretty good. Atlus usually has fantastic voice direction so I have faith.

Yusuke here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnNN2Z8p38o&feature=youtu.be

Makoto here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILT2ftAl9Z4&feature=youtu.be

They both sound pretty good to me honestly. I'm liking all the English voices so far.

Futaba here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izeG_Zuip4Q
I think as far as the English voices go Ann is still my favorite, but I think Futaba sounds really good as well.

Haru here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAWWQweNz2Y
She sounds good, also sounds like she might be a bit of a goody-goody. By the way she speaks and some things she says in her trailer, I get the feeling she'll be a lot like Yukiko from P4G. She seems to want to escape from being told what to do all the time and her manner of speech seems really proper.

We got a nice little trailer today for Persona 5 completely in English! Sounds good to me!
Spoiler:
phpBB [video]

Igor sounds awesome also. I like his new Japanese voice quite a bit, and I'm kinda glad they made his English one a bit darker and more serious sounding as well.

Short rant inbound:
It seems like a lot of people don't like the English voices and I see some people saying this is the worst dub ever... I think it's good though, I don't like it quite as much as Persona 4 Golden, but let's be fair, when you hire Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, and Yuri Lowenthal as main cast voices, it's hard to stack up. And let's be real no one is as bad as Fuuka was in Persona 3. I've heard some god awful dubs in my time, but I wouldn't even mark Persona 5 up as a "bad" one.
Don't get me wrong I'm all in favor of dual audio, I just wish they would have included from the get go instead of deciding to toss it in 3 months before release and pushing it back as a result. I'll definitely be playing with the Japanese voices, but my first playthrough will be in English.

(Sorry for the little rant, but I love Persona quite a bit and I'm just upset because of the delay. I had to vent somewhere.)

Trailers for some of the shop owners for P5 dropped today!
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/12/05/persona-5-introduces-a-trio-of-helpful-confidant-characters (too lazy to post individual videos)
They seem cool. I'm assuming they'll all be S.Links, if so that's pretty sweet. I do find it funny that Sojiro compensates you for helping him run his cafe by teaching you to make coffee.
Tae looks pretty cool. I like her design, she's got a cool punk look going. I dig it. Also she reminds me of the teacher/school nurse from P3 Edogawa...that dude freaked me out.
It seems like Munehisa is an airsoft gun store owner. So the guns they use are airsoft guns lol. I'm guessing they turn into actual guns when brought over to the Shadow World (idk what it's actually called yet). I can't see an airsoft gun doing much to a shadow.

Looks awesome!! Mann I don't think it would be possible for me to be more hyped for this game...Can't wait to find out each one of their stories, especially the crazy doctor lady.
