Visually, Yu is a simple & straight-forward design, and is generally appealing... definitely a good thing for the hero of a series. I can see a lot of similarities between him and other "fighting game" / "anime" heroes that came before him... to name a few: Kyo Kusanagi and Light Yagami. His calm & cool attitude is also likeable, which also  works very well as the controllable character in the Persona 4 RPG. His outfit is somewhat simple, but nonetheless stylish and defines the setting of Persona 4. Japanese people just know how to dress. ;)
