Persona 5 the Animation English Dub Being Released via Funimation Tomorrow on August 18, 2020


Following the tease from Funimation, the anime streaming service has officially announced that they will be adding Persona 5 the Animation to their service in the United States and Canada with English subs and, for the first time, an English dub.

Funimation will include all 26 episodes of the Persona 5 anime adaptation, along with the two special episodes “Dark Sun…” and “Stars and Ours.”

Starting August 18 in the United States and Canada, you’ll be able to stream all 26 episodes AND the two special episodes of PERSONA5 the Animation, subbed and dubbed on Funimation. That’s right, you’ll be able to catch the English dubbed version of the series exclusively on Funimation. You never saw it coming!

So, if you’ve already worked your way through Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal (and maybe even Persona Q2), there’s never been a better time to binge the anime.

Adapted from the hit ATLUS video game in 2018 by CloverWorks (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl SenpaiThe Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED) and Aniplex of America, PERSONA5 the Animation takes the dungeon-crawling, slice of life, Phantom Thief action from the game series and brings it to life in a new way!

Aniplex recently announced a Blu-ray set to be released on September 29th, featuring an English dub of the anime.

Persona 5 the Animation, directed by Masashi Ishihama, was initially broadcast on Japanese television from April 2018 to March 2019. The special broadcasts “Dark Sun…” and “Stars and Ours” respectively aired on December 31, 2018 and March 23, 2019. OVAs “Proof of Justice” and “A Magical Valentine’s Day” were included with the Japanese Blu-ray releases Volume 11 on May 29, 2019 and Volume 12 on June 26, 2019.
