A young man
once feared as a violent punk. Despite his looks, he is goodhearted and a
skilled knitter. He prefers fighting up close with powerful throws, and his
Persona is the thunderous powerhouse Take-Mikazuchi. A student of Yasogami
High School, Kanji often skips classes and apparently gets into many fights in
the streets. (However, it is implied that his reasons for doing so are borne
out of trying to make other happy, not out of simple delinquency; the first
example of his violence, beating up a biker gang, is explained by his mother
as an attempt to make his mother happy, as the bikes were too loud for her to
get any sleep). His family runs a textile shop with the Amagis being their
acquainted costumers, and Kanji is also very skilled with tailoring for that
very reason. He is portrayed as being insecure about his sexuality after
meeting Naoto (who disguises as a boy) and developing a minor crush on her. He
tends to go red whenever he is around Naoto.

Kanji is definitely
one of my favorite characters from Persona 4 Arena. Fighting with a steel
chair? I'm sold. lol. This dude just carries himself like a badass... what's not
to like about him? . . .
So in the Persona 4 RPG, his uhh... "battle" with Homosexuality
is pretty hilarious, and clever. I'm to the point in the game where I don't know
if he's ever going to officially "come out". In any case, what a
hilariously entertaining character. lol.
