Daisuke Nagase is a character in Persona 4. A student of Yasogami High School, he is the childhood friend of Kou Ichijo. He is one of the choices for the Strength Arcana Social Link.

Appearances Edit

Design Edit

Daisuke has short brown hair and brown eyes and has brown band-aid on his nose. At school he is not seen wearing a Yasogami High school uniform; instead, he wears the navy blue P.E. uniform. When he's in soccer club, he wears a black and yellow shirt with an orange top and black shorts as his soccer uniform.

In Persona 4 The Animation he has dark brown hair and brown eyes, and his gym uniform has been recolored to turquoise. When he helps Kou out in his basketball game, he wears the basketball uniform.

Personality Edit

Contrary to his appearance, Daisuke is rather calm and reserved, especially in comparison to the more cheerful and enthusiastic Kou, though he does tend to be blunt and irritable. His fear of failure causes him to not put his full effort into anything, though this ultimately changes through the interactions with the protagonist.

Daisuke shows no interest in women, whether it be by saying that Nanako Dojima isn't cute, or by being annoyed in a girl showing interest in him.

Profile Edit

Persona 4 Edit

Should the protagonist join the soccer team, he will meet Daisuke Nagase. Befriending Daisuke as a teammate will create the Strength Arcana Social Link between them.

Daisuke frequently hangs out with basketball player Kou Ichijo, who has been friends with him since they were young. The two athletes help the protagonist get better at soccer, to win the respect of the other teammates. Daisuke often says the wrong things at times, but means well. i.e. while out with his friends, Kou Ichijo, the protagonist, Yosuke Hanamura and Nanako Dojima he says that she is not cute when she objects to Kou calling her cute, which leads to her getting offended.

Kou asks the protagonist for assistance in helping Daisuke. The basketball player reveals that Daisuke had been humiliated when his middle school girlfriend broke-up with him. Daisuke developed a fear of failing even if he tried his best, causing himself to not put forward his full effort into anything, including soccer or getting a girlfriend. Kou and the protagonist try to help by setting up a group blind date, but end up irritating the soccer player. His ex-girlfriend was also very guilty of humiliating Daisuke, though only breaking up with him because he was nervous and didn't want to get intimate. His ex-girlfriend also watches Daisuke play soccer because of guilt, she tries apologizing but is brushed aside by Daisuke's cold replies. Through these fights however Daisuke realizes he had to get over his fear. Daisuke gains closure by speaking to his ex-girlfriend and thanks Kou and the protagonist for their help. He is also disappointed that his ex-girlfriend has already a boyfriend, as he wanted to be with her again but is still happy of resolving the issue.

During the summer festival, he is seen wanting to purchase some shaved ice, but it is all sold out. Downtrodden, he got some advice from Nanako, who suggested Aiya's Chinese Diner. They do in fact have shaved ice in stock, and are more than happy to sell some to Daisuke. He later thanks Nanako.

On October 29, he was forced to help out Yosuke, Kanji, Yu, Chie, and Yukiko for their group date cafe. He ended up being paired up with Chie. When asked about hobbies, Yukiko blurts out "Defeating Shadows" which confuses Daisuke. When Chie asked Daisuke what type of girls he likes, he replied that he "thinks girls suck". He gets annoyed and tries to leave but gets stopped by Yosuke and stays for a while, however still annoyed. Afterward, he and Yu watch Kou's play, called 'Romeo, Juliet, and Hamlet."
