The anime series Persona 5 is officially getting an English dub and all the main voice actors are coming back – including Joker, who will now say full sentences.
The series will be released as a blu-ray set on September 29, 2020. Perhaps the most remarkable fact of the English dubbing of the anime Persona 5 is that Xander Mobus will play Joker, who is canonically known as Ren.
You can watch the trailer for the series below.
“The original Phantom Thieves are returning to take your heart in the brand new PERSONA5, the complete animation Blu-ray set of September 29, 2020,” reads the video description on YouTube.
“The complete Blu-ray set features a never-heard English dubbing of PERSONA5 the Animation with the voices of ATLUS’s original video game Persona 5. Also included are special episodes, a set of twelve illustration cards and additional bonus content. “
For those unfamiliar with the series, Ren – or Joker – is a high school student who recently moved to Tokyo’s Shujin Academy. After a sequence of strange events, he and his companions (the Thieves Ghosts of Hearts) get the passage into a mysterious world that exists as part of the collective unconscious of society, within which they have access to curious powers. Their goal is to expose the betrayal of bad adults and face a strange series of psychotic breakdowns that have occurred sporadically across Japan.
