Glad to see Slouchy McDouche outside the top 3 and at least a bit of P2 representation. Looks like the Japanese aren't very fond of Junpei.

Okay,

a) what the goddamn hell is Kanji doing at 12!? :mad:
b) what's so cool about the Persona 4 main character? I don't get it. He's not... anything.
besides JYB when he yells out persona names
c) there's only one character in the whole list that isn't from P3 or P4. :|

Most likely from the anime. :)

He's King!

There.

Really, Yosuke? He was such a jerk half the time.

Hmm... on one hand, this is another example of Japanese "favorite character" lists that seem more than a little questionable, and which are heavily weighed towards "who I currently remember the most". And seriously, Yu at #1? So players think THEY are the best character?

On the other hand, Junpei is nowhere on this list. Japan is redeemed.


You're doing that just to make me rage, aren't you?

Personally I thought he was great. He has a lot of character, despite being silent. I'd say you have an argument for P3 MC being anywhere on that list, though. He was pretty dull.

I remember seeing a scan of the earliest votes for this ages ago and laughing, laughing, laughing. This is from that Persona magazine or whatever right? Seems to be just as funny as I remembered!
 
#29
Mitsuru at only #13? Yosuke as high as #2? Yeah, I think I see how seriously I should bother taking this list. Lack of P2 representation is also depressing.

No Lisa Silvermen, but her clone Chie is in?

Japan one step forward, YOU SO STUPID steps back. :|

Chie sucks, kids
 
#33
That's the worst list! No Lisa and no Maya means it's automatically invalidated. Also, the P4 anime is so fucking terrible please don't infect the games with that junk.

I don't even remember anything about Yukari

I'm not sure about Kanji, I never got him higher than rank 2 or 3 because I kept forgetting about him (he's in the other building I think) and I wanted to max the other personas... sorry Kanji! Maybe in a new playthrough

I know.... but in Japan for some reason MC is always the top favorite. Yu is there probably for P4Arena? It must have boosted his popularity.

And yeah, Yu's story in P4A was the most boring of all....
