Like this. SEGA used advanced face scanning technics for many of the game's voice actors so that the character models resemble their real life counterparts — to varying degrees of success, however! The in-game version of popstar Mari Yaguchi looks somewhat off.

Famed voice actress Aya Hirano is lending her pipes to Yakuza 4 for the character of Hana. Hirano is best known for two things: Voicing schoolgirl Haruhi Suzumiya in the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and appearing in a calendar, wearing a bikini all wrong.
