    Time for Joker to turn into a real living character. Hope they make a good job, as Atlus seems to care about the anime as canon (they also use anime names as canon ones)

    I hope the animation is a little bit better than for “The Day Breakers”. I don’t trust A-1 Animations too much, though.

    • David Hidekaz

      The Day Breakers’ animation quality was disappointing, like the studio went lazy over stuff. Heck even the P4A had better animation quality and the character’s designs were very close to the game’s.
