Trivia / Persona 5: The Animation

Go To

  • Lying Creator: In an interview, Director Masashi Ishihama claimed there would be a surprise that would deviate from the game's story, but it never came to pass, at least not as the phrasing implied. It's true that hearing Akechi's voice cheer the Phantom Thieves on against Yaldabaoth never happened in the actual game, but it didn't actually change the result of anything.
  • No Export for You: The Proof of Justice and A Magical Valentine's Day OVAs have never been legally subbed and are missing entirely from the complete Blu-ray set released for the English dub.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Due to the passing of Miyu Matsuki and Kazunari Tanaka before the anime went to production, Chihaya Mifune and Junya Kaneshiro are respectively voiced by Haruka Terui and Takahiro Fujimoto.
    • Like in Royal, Tae Takemi is now voiced by Abby Trott in the English dub rather than Kirsten Potter.
  • The Resolution Will Not Be Televised: Averted; unlike Persona 4: The Animation, the two OVAs that each compromised the final third of the game (whereas P4's anime had a single movie) did air in December 2018 and March 2019, respectively, but only on web-streaming services like Abema TV.
  • Throw It In!: Max Mittelman ad-libbed Ryuji shouting "YEET!" when throwing Morgana.

How well does it match the trope?
