Yu Narukami is the main protagonist of Persona 4. The young man who ended the case that rocked Inaba returns for the holidays, only to find a new mystery in the P-1 Grand Prix tournament. With his katana and Persona, Izanagi, he can hold his own in all aspects. Yu is depicted as being a distant but otherwise friendly loner with a pessimistic outlook on life due to having to move frequently as a result of his parents' demanding careers.

Visually, Yu is a simple & straight-forward design, and is generally appealing... definitely a good thing for the hero of a series. I can see a lot of similarities between him and other "fighting game" / "anime" heroes that came before him... to name a few: Kyo Kusanagi and Light Yagami. His calm & cool attitude is also likeable, which also  works very well as the controllable character in the Persona 4 RPG. His outfit is somewhat simple, but nonetheless stylish and defines the setting of Persona 4. Japanese people just know how to dress. ;)
