Hi, I’m new to the Persona community. I don’t have a system to play P5 on, so I’m watching the anime. Would I be able to understand what’s going on in P5 Scramble from watching the P5 anime, or would I need to look in extra places?
The P5 anime is fine enough, but it's a bit empty compared to the game and doesn't show a lot of the side content in the game. I would recommend checking out the social links + events that happen in-game in videos when you're finished with the anime. I can't recall anything else that's not shown that well in the anime so have fun! :)
From what i've been told, P5 the animation is pretty incomparable to the game. P5S is absolutely not where you should go, since it's after the events of the game. I think your best bet is probably to watch gameplay. Or if possible,the best outcome is to play it yourself. P5 came out on PS3, therefore there's an Emulator to play P5 on PC. I'm sorry, I don't know if you meant you had no PC and PS4 or you had no PS4.
The Persona 5 anime is said to be really bad compared to the game. I don't think it's that bad but it kinda fills you in. The ending of the anime feels like it was cut short. If you don't plan on buying or playing the game yourself, watch the anime and maybe a YouTube ending Walkthrough to get a better picture of the setup for P5S
