I came up with another Arcana Swap, this time for Persona 4.
Name: Yosuke Hanamura
Yosuke moves to Inaba with his parents after his father's work moves him to the local branch just outside the town. Yosuke tends to keep to himself since his father's job moves the family around so much that he never really has the chance to bond with his classmates and would rather not have to go through painful goodbyes with each move. However, once breaking through his shell, Yosuke is an extremely approachable young man. He is happy to help anyone with a problem and likes making people laugh. However this can be a slight problem since he prioritises everyone else's problems above his own. Yosuke is also very closed off to his personality; hiding a lot of the qualities that make him who he is because he's scared of people's reactions. Once making friends and awakening to his persona, Yosuke decides to express himself by dying his dark brown hair to a lighter shade.
Name: Naoto Shirogane
Naoto is the grandchild of the manager of the Inaba branch of Junes. They moved to Inaba after their parents died in a car crash and they were taken in by their grandfather. To express their gratitude, they often help out at the store to make life a little easier for their grandfather. Thanks to this, a lot of people around town think they've got everything handed to them on a silver platter and blame their family for making the shopping district slowly go out of business. This gossip does bother them, but more for their grandfather's sake since he's only working to make sure he can provide for Naoto throughout the rest of their education and early adulthood. Naoto has a bad habit of being quite sharp tongued and saying things they probably shouldn't to rude customers, which results in them getting many lectures from his grandfather and other management workers from the store. When Yosuke transfers into Yasogami, Naoto decides to befriend him as a fellow 'outsider' to at least make him feel a little welcome.
Name: Kanji Tatsumi
Kanji is the son of the owner of Tatsumi Textiles and the childhood friend of Rise. Despite his rough and tough appearance, Kanji loves his hobbies of sewing and knitting and often helps his mother around the shop to improve his skills. He's so good at his craft that he sometimes takes commissions from his classmates to make plush toys or accessories. However this has led to some problems, such as when he got a detention from the home ec teacher who had enough of being corrected by Kanji almost constantly. Despite his friendly personality, he can be quite aggressive when needed and has a bit of a foul mouth. He mostly uses his appearance and fearsome side to scare off persistent guys who won't leave Rise alone. He's developed a reputation as 'Rise's bodyguard' but he really doesn't care as long as he can help his childhood friend.
Name: Rise Kujikawa
Rise is the granddaughter of the owner of Marukyu Tofu and the most popular girl in school. However she dislikes both of these things. She feels as though she is trapped in her fate to inherit the family business, especially since she spends a large majority of her freetime helping out around the shop. She also feels incredibly isolated by all of her classmates putting her up on a pedestal as it becomes clear that they simply like her for her looks and have no interest in actually getting to know her. She often has to rely on her childhood friend, Kanji, to chase off any particularly persistent admirers. All these feelings of powerlessness keep building and making Rise feel more and more bitter towards the world. However, underneath all that bitterness, Rise is a very cheerful and bubbly girl who enjoys playing pranks on her friends. Just… don't make her mad.
Name: Chie Satonaka
Chie is known as the local delinquent of Yasogami High, often skipping class and getting into fights. However these rumours are blown way out of proportion. The only fight she ever got in was with a biker gang that kept causing trouble in her neighbourhood and frightening her dog. Chie often keeps to herself and pushes people away because she doesn't want people to get to know her. This isn't due to being antisocial but more out of fear of being mocked by those she tries to befriend due to her tomboy personality and extreme love of Kung Fu. Many students at Yasogami talk about her behind her back, saying things like "She doesn't act like a real girl" and "Guys don't like girls who aren't cute". All of these comments have led to Chie feeling extremely self conscious about her interests and lack of interest in boys, so she hides that under the guise of the unapproachable delinquent. However, once the group befriends her, she is very bubbly and kind, often acting as a protective older sister to the younger members.
Teddie is a famous teen idol, popular for their childlike wonder and excitement towards everything they do, who returns to their hometown of Inaba while on hiatus. They became exhausted after being swamped with constant work and it took a large toll on Teddie's mental well-being too. It reached a point where all of the different personalities they portrayed began to blend together with their usual personality and they started to lose sight of who they really were. Teddie hoped that living quietly in their hometown for a while would help them come to grips with their true self again. Something that Teddie is known for is sometimes presenting as male and sometimes presenting as female which has led to many of their fans debating which Teddie is. However, whenever asked about it, Teddie simply responds that they are Teddie.
Name: Yukiko Amagi
Yukiko is a strange creature from the TV world who helps the group traverse safely, see through the fog and hopefully solve the murders. Yukiko is a pink and red plushie with a bird-like appearance and wears an elegant kimono with flame patterns across the material. Yukiko has no memories of who she is, just that she woke up in this world full of Shadows and that people have been getting thrown into that world lately. Despite her elegant appearance, Yukiko is very goofy and enjoys thinking up new puns to surprise the group with and then laugh at them herself. However, the only other member to appreciate her puns is Teddie. While she is usually easy-going and cheerful, when in important situations, she becomes extremely serious and sometimes even downright terrifying when provoked. When in the real world, Yukiko's appearance is the same as her real in-game appearance.
Name: Yu Narukami
Yu is a renowned teenage detective who became famous after helping his uncle solve difficult cases. His uncle, Dojima and his partner, Adachi are the only people in the force who take him seriously and acknowledge his achievements. Everyone else shuns him and treats him like a naïve child, telling him to simply go back to school. While he is a detective, Yu doesn't think very highly of the police and will often uncover the various injustices he comes across; thanks to this, many of his higher-ups keep a close eye on him. Yu can be a little full of himself sometimes but always has his friends and family to knock him back down to size whenever that happens. Aside from making complex deductions, Yu is well known among his peers for his undercover work, coming up with many different disguises and adopting different personas accordingly. When lost in thought, Yu has a habit of folding origami animals with the nearest pieces of paper. Thanks to this, a large majority of his reports end up having creases in them.

Doki Doki Highschool Days RomCom Anime Cliches!? Kya!!
The main character is Chie. And as a main character, she got to be the Sane Guy who witnesses stupid shit unfolds around her (and got dragged into it). Also completely unrelated but very important : she's dating Yukiko. Life is weird but atleast her gf is awesome.
Chie is the only person who knew about the "Secret Yosuke Fanclub" which only has two people in it.
She accidentally walked in on Souji and Katsuragi exchanging photos of Yosuke like pokemon cards and almost called the police on them. They managed to convince Chie that they are harmless and to not tell anyone about it.
They're both the top students at the school and it wouldn't be funny if they got caught spying on their classmate.
("And trading illegal pictures," added Chie.
"Barely legal." Souji replied.
"And here I thought Yosuke was the pervert.")
Yosuke have no idea about all that shit. Souji and Katsuragi are his best friends that he loves very much (and not so platonically)
Conclusion : they are all stupid as fuck.
