With the current climate resulting in convention cancellations, opportunities to meet actors or get autographs are limited. However, for fans of the English Persona voice actors, there will be an alternative opportunity. A number of Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 cast members are participating in a virtual autograph signing event. People go to Streamily to purchase the print or figure of their choice, then can tune in at different days or times in November 2020 to watch the actor sign their item during a social media stream.
Here is the list of participating Persona voice actors and when each one will be signing prints and items featuring their characters. Note that people who voice multiple characters in the series, like Tara Platt and Yuri Lowenthal, have multiple options.
