The Persona 5 hype train keeps rolling along, and Atlus has a new English character trailer out today featuring the lovely “cat burglar” Ann Takamaki. Here’s a brief description from Atlus about her personality:
Being the center of school gossip is a quick way to make anyone feel like an outcast, and Persona 5‘s Ann Takamaki gets the full brunt of that. Ann is a beautiful girl plagued by unjust rumors from her peers on a daily basis. But despite the Scarlett Letter treatment, Ann cares deeply about her friends…which is why she’s so eager to pick up the mask and join the Phantom Thieves. Well, that and also to spite the rumors about her and the “excessively friendly” gym teacher at Shujin Academy. And while the Phantom Thieves won’t be done with just one lecherous gym teacher, Ann winds up being the closest thing to the group’s moral compass. Plus, she’s just a total badass that you’d want watching your back in a fight.
Ann is being voiced by Erica Harlacher, who you can see in an interview with Atlus PR manager John Hardin in this video below. You might recognize Erica’s voice as Harley from Fairy Fencer F, or Ayesha from Atelier Ayesha. Her resume is pretty extensive, and covers a variety of parts in video game, anime and live action voice over roles.
