Still disappointed, Atlus
May 15
I already wrote about why I was disappointed in Atlus over this swimsuit DLC for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but I know not everyone shares my overbearing principles* and would like to see the swimsuit trailer, so I will do my civic duty and post it here, on-line. *my overbearing principles involve seeing Kanji in a speedo. How the hell does he not get a swimsuit costume? read

Persona 4's best character (also, Kanji) get Dancing All Night trailers


Kanji likes boys
Apr 06
Oh maaaaaaaan. I am only ever dancing as Chie in the yellow Bruce Lee Game of Death jumpsuit. Criminal to only show that off for like four seconds (:58). Either don't show it all and leave it a lovely surprise, or parade that thing around like it's a bright yellow jumpsuit. Oh. Kanji dances, too, I guess. I think his default costume is background character in House of Pain's "Jump Around" video. read
