Persona 5 Character Profiles: Ryuji Sakamoto and Protagonist


As part of the “Hunt the Thieves” campaign requiring fans in Japan to scan the QR codes of Persona 5 posters spread out nationwide, character profiles for the characters are being “identified” on the official campaign website as milestones are reached.

The protagonist’s profile was identified first, and following that was Ryuji Sakamoto’s at 15,555 distinct tweets for the scanned QR codes. At 20,555, Anne Takamaki’s character profile will be revealed.

Ryuji Sakamoto Profile

(Translation via Nenilein)

Just like the youth assumed to be the leader, he is a 16-year old boy in the second year at Shûjin gakuen high school. He has a rude way of speaking and seems to be regarded as a “problem child” at school. He causes his teachers and instructors more trouble than usual, and his behavior is problematic.
According to our investigation, he did not exhibit this sort of behavior previously, and further investigation into the cause of his delinquent behavior is desirable.

2: Nobody really pays attention to what I say.
