Yousuke Hanamura feels dejected after his parents change careers, forcing him to move from the city to the backwater town of Inaba. Upon transferring to Yasogami High School, he struggles to find his place in the community as people still believe he is an outsider. He spends all of his free time begrudgingly helping his father at Junes, the department store taking away business from the local shops in the town. While he takes a break from his hectic schedule, Yousuke crosses paths with Saki Konishi—a coworker who takes an interest in him.

Persona 4 The Magician explores the backstory behind Yuu Narukami's friend and the Magician confidant, Yousuke Hanamura.

Persona 4 The Magician is a great read for those who are already emotionally invested in the Persona 4 franchise. The original P4 media already does a good job with presenting Yosuke's character, and this manga is a great supplemental read that adds to it even further. Being able to see more of Yosuke's background before Yu arrived in Inaba as well as the early interactions between them and seeing some key P4 moments from his point of view is what I wanted from this manga, and that is exactly what I got.

TLDR; It's decent as a standalone story, but in order to appreciate ...
