Protagonist (voiced by Jun Fukuyama, voice samples)P5-Character-Details

The leader of the Phantom Thieves. A 16-year-old young man and second-year high school student who transfers to Shujin High School. He seems quiet and well-mannered at first glance, but gives a completely different impression once he has donned his “phantom thief” guise. He finds residence at the Shiken Cafe run by his parents’ friend. The reason for him moving from the city to the capital Tokyo is currently unknown.

Ryuji Sakamoto (voiced by Mamoru Miyano, voice samples)P5-Character-Details2

Just like the protagonist, he is a 16-year-old, second-year student at Shujin High School. He stands out with his wild behavior and seems to be a “problem child” even within the school. More than often, his problematic behavior imposes on the hospitality of the school’s teachers and advisers. He previously did not behave the way he currently does, but the origin of his bad behavior is currently unknown.

An Takamaki (voiced by Nana Mizuki, voice samples)P5-Character-Details3

A 16-year-old, quarter-American girl who attends Shujin High School. Unable to fit in with those around her due to her noticeably different appearance, she isolates herself within the school. She is often seen hanging out with the protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto. Strange rumors about her have seemingly been circulating the school, but whether or not they’re true is currently unknown.

Morgana (voiced by Ikue Otani, voice samples)P5-Character-Details4

The most mysterious member of the Phantom Thieves. Childlike in height, her appearance imitates that of a black cat, but her true identity is completely unknown. It looks like she’s wearing something on her head, but…? That is all the information we currently have. Though she does resemble the black cat often seen with the protagonist…


New details on Persona 5, including the reveal of its fifth party member, have leaked via Japanese magazines.

Our heroes shake up the big city as the “Heart’s Phantom Thieves.” They send notice in advance to persons to confess their crimes and reform, and set out to steal the “rotten hearts” from “rotten adults” for the sake of changing a rotten world.


  • Protagonist – Arsene
  • Ryuji Sakamoto – Captain Kidd
  • Morgana – Zorro
  • Ann Takamaki – Carmen

Fifth Party Member
The fifth member of the Phantom Thieves is a young man named Yuusuke Kitagawa, voiced by Tomokazu Sugita. His persona is Goemon. He is a scholarship student that attends the Kousei Public High School as part of the academy’s art course. He is a live-in disciple of his Japanese painter landlord Madarame.


Play Pokémon In The Real World with Pokémon Go

The day has finally come where we can catch Pokemon in the real world. Well not literally catch them for real but with the use of augmented reality, we can experience part of it using our smartphone. The idea is to go out, get some fresh air, and catch some Pokemon.


The Pokemon Company announced today via a livestream event that it is working with Nintendo, GAME FREAK, and software development company Niantic to create the Pokémon GO smartphone app. The app will be available in 2016 for Android phones and iPhones. The year 2016 also marks the 20th anniversary of the original Pokémon games.


There is also a watch-like peripheral (mostly worked on by Nintendo) for the game called Pokémon Go Plus that allows you to basic things like throw a Poké Ball. It pairs with your phone and has a rumble and flash feature when you come across or interact with a Pokemon in the real world. The idea is that you can enjoy the world around you, instead of focusing only on your phone. It is said that the app won’t be a standalone title, and that they could also connect it to the other Pokemon games.


My thoughts on this, it surely is interesting.  But one thing is for sure, it won’t turn out like the trailer we just saw. You can see how the app actually is on the last 10 seconds of the trailer. I’m sure you can see those Pokemon in the real world with augmented reality, but yeah you gotta see everything on your phone. So it’s not as pleasant or awesome as in the trailer. Nonetheless, i’m definitely excited about it. I’d probably get the peripheral too when it’s available.
