Akira and Ryuji awaken to the power of “persona” through their will of rebellion, and manage to escape their crisis.

    Will it have Hiragana/Katakana above the kanji?

    Akira Kurusu… Hope they re going to keep this name for the anime too. I didn’t like what they did with P3 and P4 heroes’ names.

    • TMose

      I like the P3/P4 anime names a lot better. Also, the name “Akira” has become the most boring name in Japanese media from being overused so much so I hope it also changes.
