Izanagi (of Persona 4) Plush toy released in Japan (And it looks dope!)

Atlus has an Izanagi (of Persona 4) in their online store. (JAPAN-STORE THAT IS) You can get the 23 cm x 15 x 15 cm (measurement includes the sword) Plush toy for 2,980 yen ($30) if you live in Japan. Unfortunately, I can't read Japanese. (Where Is DeL the Funky Homosapien when you need him) and I've tried Various ways to navigate the site and order this Amazing Plushona haha, Too bad Atlus doesn’t have an online store here…












Your persona, for those who don’t know, is a demonic part of your soul – the evil part that you don’t like admitting you even have – that lives inside your mind. They have all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Persona 4

Shin Megami Tensei

Cover of Persona 4

Persona 4 (ペルソナ4, Perusona 4) is the sixth game in the Persona Series. As opposed to previous Persona games, Persona 4 takes place in a fictional Japanese countryside, where a group of high school students attempt to solve a murder mystery.

About Persona 4
Shortly after an urban youth begins a year-long stay in the countryside town of Inaba, the rural town's peace is shattered by a horrific murder that leaves no clues or suspects. As the lone incident develops into a series of bizarre crimes, he discovers that only he and his friends have the power to solve the baffling case, bring those responsible to justice, and restore harmony to his new home.

Key Features
Balance your double life – Beyond intense battles, Persona fusion, and new weapon creation exists a normal high school life of friends, classes, and part-time jobs. The way you manage and integrate your activities within each day will determine how you progress through the game.
Unprecedented team control – With a greater emphasis on developing bonds in the fight to solve the mysterious murders, strong friendships are key to your success. Directly control teammates in battle, earn greater party support for combat, and master individual Social Links to unlock your party's true potential.
Find the true ending – 60+ hours of gameplay thrusts you into a deep mystery where midnight television leads to serial killings. You must investigate murders, rescue those who can be rescued, and unmask the culprit behind it all—or risk being forever shrouded in the fog of doubt
