I love Persona as much as the next person: In fact, I am a pretty intense fan, having played through Persona 3 5 times and Persona 4 twice. And while I love seeing merchandise from the show, stuff like this just makes me facepalm. The Persona 4 Re:MIX+ 2 set is the fifth keychain set from MegaHouse featuring the Persona 4 crew, and barely any of them are new: in fact, the MC, Yosuke, Yukiko, Kanji and Izanagi were all in previous sets–most of them in the one just released. Konohana Sakuya, Jiraiya, Take-Mikazuchi and Margaret are the only new additions.
These are blind boxed and a case costs ¥5,400 with a release in May. You can grab one at Hobby Search or AmiAmi, and while I am sure most collectors will be lured in by the new pieces it’s kind of annoying to see that they didn’t just do a completely new set. They’ve kind of neglected 3, with only a few characters in keychain form, so I am sure fans would have liked a new character instead of a 4th version of Yosuke.

Man, there sure have been a lot of Persona figures announced recently! First MegaHouse announced scaled versions of Yukiki and the MC from Persona 4 along with a new keychain set, and then at Tamashii Nations Bandai revealed the gorgeous D-Arts Konohana Sakuya. It seems like they had more on display at the same event that hasn’t been shown off until now–D-Arts of Yukiko and the MC (Shujinkou)!
These were on display right below D-Arts Konohana Sakuya and Izanagi, so it’s odd that we aren’t seeing them until now, but that doesn’t make the news any less exciting! It seems like 2012 is going to be the year of Persona, and I doubt Bandai and MegaHouse will stop with just these figures–both companies are known for making complete sets of a show or game’s cast!
[UPDATE] Bluefin has posted pictures on their Facebook that unveil almost all of the Persona 4 cast and some of Persona 3 as D-Arts. There’s Orpheus, the MC of Persona 3, Jiraya, Kintoki-Douji, Naoto, Kanji, Chie, and Yosuke. Phew, that’s quite a few figures to have announced all at once! They’re all painted as well, so it shouldn’t be too long before they go up for order, and I’m sure we’ll see the P3 cast in its entirety as well! Check them all out in the gallery.
