Why is Yukari dressed like a Super Sentai reject? To avoid panty-shots with her original outfit?

Story-wise, she works part-time as a sentai actress for stage shows. She got called into work during her work.

I don't know why the designer decided that route but I don't mind. Yukari fan all the way.

Well, I'm still playing "Persona 3" (after the part where spoiler[Shinjiro died]) and I won't play "Arena" until I do so, so I didn't know.

Also, why are they calling it "Persona 4" when it uses P3 characters? Why not use the characters from the first two games and make it "Dissidia: Persona?" I know the first two games haven't aged well, but mediocrity of the game the character was from didn't stop SE from putting Lightning in "Duodecim."

The first game in the Arena series takes place in Yaso Inaba, and features the P4 characters as main, with the P3 characters just being cameos. I think there were only 5 main Persona 3 characters that made cameos (Aegis, Mitsuru, Akihiko, Fuuka, Elizabeth). The story of the first game mainly focuses on the P4 characters.

Also, unfortunately, since P4 is more recent and got a TV anime, the otaku kiddies in Japan are more focused on that. And it's a shame. since I find P3 to be superior (I played P4 first).

Also also, about Yukari... Since it's 2 years in the future from P3, Yukari wouldn't be wearing her outfit from P3, since it was her high school uniform. The Featherman thing may be to connect the worlds of P3 and P4, since they both feature Featherman.
