Morooka, slayer of shadows by Loarfy Morooka, slayer of shadows by Loarfy
I was trying to draw more dynamic poses, but then I totally lazed out on the background.

Also, can you believe this guy has no positive fanart in the whole of deviantart? I was hoping for him to join my team/become a social link the whole time. And then he didn't. :(

For those of you who haven't played Persona 4, this is Kinshiro Morooka (the greatest character in the entire series):

Damn strait, the shadows are on his shitlist. Kinshiro is a tragically underappreciated character, he genuinly cares about the future of his students and tries to keep them of course with his own methods, and as iun all great characters he has his flaws namely his alcoholism presumably induced from frustration with dealing with kids who fail to meen his asperations.

Dude, Morooka is awesome, but I think we should have him a DLC Party member.

Ryotaro Dojima: "Why ish the biggesht idiot at Yashogami High Shchool the greatesht pershon in the sheries?. . . hic!"
Never mind Ryotaro Dojima up there, he had too much Sake last happy hour. But yeah, Kinshiro could have had some power as a member if he had any actual character development and not just implied to be a good person. Social link, that would be difficult, but I'm thinking he would be Devil and his shadow would represent the reverse of the Devil Arcana.

I love Morooka's teaching.
First, he does the 'kids these days' rant, throws a question at a random person (mostly Yu/Souji/Charlie/KENPACHI-RAMA-SAMA/-insert name here- or Yosuke), and badmouths you even if you get it right.

It's strange that it works though.

I'm sorry, King Moron. I never realized how awesome you really are.

But I'm happy we never saw what your Shadow would be like. You're frightening enough as it is.

but yeah, given his 'hidden' love for Rise, I'm worried what his shadow would've been also. goodness.

This is possibly the best fanart for Persona 4 I have seen, and may ever see. I had actually thought it would be neat to see Morooka in the other world, and was disappointed when that didn't happen. So seeing this makes me feel as if my dreams came true.

I dunno, actually! My headcanon for him is weirdly complicated so it's hard finding a demon who would match up well *w* Maybe... Narcissus? Though I've heard people suggest Mara, hahahahaha

Oh, and thanks for the fav and comment! :]

Anyway, this is BADASS. He doesn't even need a Persona, he has nothing to hide from himself!

Not exactly that, but he expects us to follow him in his strange trips.
Last year on a November Sunday we ended up participating in a procession to remember the people that were killed during the Second World War...all good, if it wasn't for the fact that it was raining and we were walking in the fields, dodging trees and cow dung.
It was sure an unusual way to spend a Sunday, but still... xD
