Now Playing Tracks

Naw, and for the same reason you gave: it’ll just sit there in the bag unassembled for eternity. I periodically search Y!JA in vain for that life-size (!) standup Cu Chulainn that was a promo for the MMO, but came across this instead. But if it were already painted and assembled…

Fanmade SMT figures and trinkets!

Of course, these aren’t available for sale unless you happened to attend a past Wonder Festival, a Japanese hobby con, where these pictures originate. 4000 Macca for that Demiurge was a frickin’ steal, to say nothing of the rest.

Today, I have embarked on a journey, ladies and gentlemen, for I decided to watch the first episode of that live action drama adaptation of Devil Summoner that Atlus commissioned in the 90s. There are many, many moments worth documenting in this show that so far doesn’t particularly bother to contextualize much of its happenings, but I feel that this… amalgamation at least somewhat encapsulates what you’re in for during that first 20 minute trip that only begins to resemble something coming out of Shin Megami Tensei at the very end, where a wondrously animated CG Arioch spontaneously decides to possess a prostitute. Because symbolism or something.

It would be an honor, Tumblr, if you could join me as I continue to document my adventures in watching the best of that Shin Megami Tensei and 90s dramas in general have to offer. I can only imagine what’s in store for us for another 23 episodes.

You’ve given me my single most important reason to be tens of thousands of dollars down the hole to know god damn Japanese is what you’ve done! Be proud that you’ve given me my purpose at last! Bringing people the joy of forgotten 90s dramas is what God sent me to this earth to do and it’s thanks to you, senpai, that I’ve finally realized that mission!

You have become the Ubergestalt of J-Drama. Now, gain the hidden knowledge that Arioch was actually a creepy model that potentially still exists somewhere:

Here’s something interesting I just noticed about Uriel in SMTIV. The top image comes from the initial Soul Hackers teaser, and shows silhouettes of Asmodeus, Tenkai, and clearly Uriel in the middle. But unlike Asmodeus and Tenkai, compare Uriel’s silhouette with his final design and you’ll see some slight differences, such as his claw protrusions looking more like flames and his right wing looking more like a…wing. Gabriel also appears in that trailer for a split second, also with some differences (her sword looks more like a blunt weapon, for instance), but being all in frame Uriel’s are easier to see. Just how different were their initial concepts from what we got?
