Nevermind that it’s off the air, these phantom thieves are still stealing hearts!

Earlier today, Persona fans flocked to Shibuya’s LOFT 9 for the “Net Tea Ruburan Ikumi Sekai na talk” talk show event. During the event, it was announced that the Persona 5 brand will partner with Good Smile and retailer Animate to host a cafe in November. A visual for the cafe was revealed, which features Joker and Akechi standing back-to-back against a fractured background.
