Last time I did a collection post it was for Ruri from OreImo whom I like quite a fair bit, however my feelings for her pale in comparson to this monthes character Yu Narukami of Persona 4 fame. This guy is way cool and almost all of his figures look great!
My first Yu was the One Coin chibi from Kotobukiya. I was about halfway through the game for the first time when they went up for preorder, I fell in love damn near instantly. this is a cast of characters that hold my heart like so very few before them have. This chibi catches Yu perfectly, and does a great job of reflecting just how cool he is.
Also for firsts, Mr Narukami was my first Figuart. I was terrified of this one. I heard from virtually everyone on line that Figuarts are really shoddy quality, but this one is perfect! I wouldn’t change a single thing about it and considering I passed on the GEM (I think it looks goofy) this was my best shot at getting a scale figure of Yu. 1/10 is fine by me!
Late in November last year my sister came barging into my room waking both me and my husband with news from her proxy in Japan. We scored all three statues from the Persona 4 Happy Kuji drawing. This included this gorgeous 1/8 scale Yu. His detailing is spot on and his sculpt is superb. Also in that box was this little Kyun chara of him too! Definately the best birthday surprise I’ve ever gotten.
With the statue and the chibi there was also a clear folder set featuring Yu!
Then this little guy was also a gift, from my husband. Not for any special occasion or anything. Just because it was there!
And last but not least is the media section. The Japanese release Blu Ray pales the Sentai release so hard I didn’t bother featuring it. The slip cover has Yu pulling off his glasses and looking real nice. The inside cover has a wrap around picture of Izanagi which looks amazing. It also comes with character themed post cards…Cool!
Then there are the games. Both Persona 4 and Arena had to make there way in here, because, whereas neither are my favorite for Megaten games, they are pretty damn good regardless. I plan on picking up Golden real soon, I kind of can’t wait.
Oops I almost forgot about this little…lady….
And finally come April this guy here will be joining into my collection as well. I know it’s not out yet, but I’m excited and wanted to share!
