Any explanation to why Yu Narukami is in his Yasogami High outfit

#1 Posted by Joeyoe31 (820 posts) -

When I was thinking about alternative outfits as DLC, some struck me as odd. Why would Yu, who now goes to a completely different high school, wear the outfit from Yasogami to the TV world. You could say it was to hide his weapon in like he normally does but than why did he even bring it along to Inaba in the first place?

Let me know what you think.

Because.

Because.
Okay...

He says it's his ''equipment'' if you catch my drift...

Yu probably just thinks that collar just looks super fly.

Laundry day.

While I have absolutely no idea, as I've not even played the game yet, my answer would be that - He left his school uniform at Dojima's house, when he returned for Golden Week (I think I heard someone say that's when this happens, right?) and found out they had to go back into the tv, the only clothes he had that he could wear and sneak a katana into Junes with was his old school uniform, and thus, he put it on to go back into tv land.

He explains it in his story. He just refers to it as "his equipment" when asked about it by Labrys.

Nostalgia? He wore it throughout Persona 4 so it must have just felt right.

Word. Checkered collars like whoa, son.

Because he's mutha-f*ckin Charlie Tunoku. He doesn't give a f*ck.

It's what he always wore while infiltrating the TV world, so he felt no need to change.

@FluxWaveZ: The dev team thought of everything!

Because it's a fucking videogame

Who Naruwhati? I'm not familiar with who you're referring to.

#16 Posted by OneManX (1676 posts) -

Because that jacket is so fly.

Yeah Yu Narukami is a completely new character disguising himself as Charlie Tunokou. If he didn't wear the uniform Charlie's friend's might have discovered he wasn't Charlie.

He put on his old school uniform to get psyched up.

#19 Posted by Bigheart711 (1252 posts) -

Charlie (Yu) says in his story that it happens to be his equipment, but it's most likely for nostalgia as well.

Cuz he's an anime guy

#21 Posted by JasonR86 (9577 posts) -

Because that's how it was in Persona 4 and fan service.

#22 Posted by Phatmac (5720 posts) -

Cause they didn't want to draw him a new uniform. This is why the cast of P4 doesn't wear new clothes either.

#23 Posted by MikkaQ (10261 posts) -

Cause it's a fly fuckin' outfit that attracts all the finest ladies in Inaba.

#24 Posted by coakroach (2486 posts) -

Charlie wears whatever he damn well pleases.

Who?

#26 Posted by Rongaryen (268 posts) -

This made me realize that he's wearing the Yasogami High uniform on the train in the beginning of Persona 4 also. And Rise lied about never wearing that swimsuit when she's wearing it in the opening cinematic during her commercial.

Popularity DOES lead to intimacy after all.

That's why I always keep my top exam scores on me. The ladies love that shit.

Not thank you.

This is the exact same canned response you expect to see in every discussion that could be deemed "meaningless" on any video game page.

We're fully aware it's a videogame, sometimes it's just fun to point out/make fun of dumb inconsistencies.

#31 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1230 posts) -

Well the stupid reason is because it is a video game and that is what he wore in the last video game. The more realistic reason is because it is for his "equipment" although I was curious as to why he wore it right from the start when he got off the train because he didn't know yet that he was going into the TV to fight. Doesn't really bother me but it is a little interesting.

Didn't Yu say he checks the TV every rainy night just in case?

Yu's just CrazyPrepared.

No, he said that it's a bad impulse of his, because he knows very well that the Midnight Channel doesn't work outside of Inaba.

At least, I'm pretty sure that's close to what he stated.

@TruthTellah: Thats fantastic duder.

#35 Posted by Asky314159 (58 posts) -

I thought it was neat that Yosuke and Kanji have III and II on their collars now to reflect their new years, but Charlie still has his II from last year.

#36 Posted by Dragon4234 (128 posts) -

Cause he was too damn lazy?
