~ Ann Takamaki
Ann Takamaki is one of the main characters in Atlus' 2016/17 video game, Persona 5.


Ann Takamaki is a quarter-American student living in Japan and studying in Shujin Academy. Due to her looks and foreign blood, other Japanese students discriminate her, and as such, she only had a friend, Shiho Suzui. During the scandal with teacher Suguru Kamoshida, Ann was being blackmailed by the teacher to date him in order to allow Shiho to stay on her volleyball team.

However, everything changed when she met Ren Amamiya, a transfer student who had the ability to travel to the Metaverse, a place where the hearts of people could be explored and changed to make them atone for their sins. Ann joined forces with Ren and his friends in order to form the Phantom Thieves and trigger a change of heart in Kamoshida.
