Attention all fans of Megaten(including Persona 4)
In regard to the growing rift between P4 fans and Megaten fans.
I believe that this is a very unfortunate byproduct of people only having played Persona 4 or even worse just having seen the anime without ever so much as touching any of the other Shin Megami Tensei games. I don’t believe that P4 or it’s fan base in any way represent the Megaten fandom but many of them do us a great disservice by acting like immature brats online. That’s why it’s so unfortunate that Persona 4 has Shin Megami Tensei attached to it’s title.
Seeing as how the Megaten games primarily consist of mature themed games aimed at a slightly older and intelligent audience it would be nice to see fans of ALL Megaten games act in a manor that reflects this. Persona 4 is a good game but certain elements within the fan base make it so that the rest of the fandom wants to put as much distance between them and us as possible and that’s unfortunate.
I’ll say this for the last time. Lets all try to get along and enjoy this fantastic and unique series of video games:3
Nope! Kicking it Megaten style, in an ALIGNMENT WAR.
SMT’s demon summoners face off against girlbots-deploying Persona users.
In the shadows, the small group of people-eating Avatar Tuners and Demikids armed with summoning pistols consider alliances (and betrayals) to gain some footing in the Vortex ATLUS-verse.
Who does Louis Cypher speak to in this conflict? Who amongst you are being briefed by Igor in the Velvet Helicarrier? Does Tokyo figure into it? Does Tokyo even care?

Kaneko’s inspirations for Diana, Lilith and Michael
Kaneko’s Diana and Diana of Ephesus
Lilith and Gozer (Ghostbusters)
Kaneko’s version of the Archangel Michael and Jacob Epstein’s statue of Michael defeating the Devil
It’s pretty awesome that Kaneko is really researching and influenced by other depictions of the same mythological characters as well (in this case Michael and Diana).
I miss his artwork so much.
I was just thinking about Jojo Part 7 and 8 while I was getting ready for bed, as I often do, when I made this connection:
Remember a particular object in Part 4 (and maybe 5) (and 6) that did the same thing, leading to a big stonkin’ load of Stand users coming into existence?
New SMT IV trailer teaches the Samurai Way
Shin Megami Tensei IV’s samurai don’t seem too traditional, based on their “way” shown here. I don’t recall any Kurosawa films in which the samurai vanquished demons, recruited navigational AIs, or downloaded demon fusion apps.
Nice English voice acting, though!PREORDER Shin Megami Tensei IV, upcoming games
Just started listening to it with headphones and WOW MUSIC.

The nine circles of hell from Dante’s Inferno recreated in Lego by Mihai Mihu
I. LIMBO: A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a temple.
II. LUST: Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting things, ultimately being condemned to drown in the menstrual river.
III. GLUTTONY: The circle itself is a living abomination, a hellish digestive system revealing horrific faces with mouths ready to devour the gluttons over and over for eternity.
IV. GREED: This pompous place is reserved for the punishment of the greedy ones.
V. ANGER: In this depressing place the souls are trapped in the swamp, they can’t move and they cannot manifest their frustration which is making them even more angry.
VI. HERESY: The giant demon watches closely over his fire pit, dwarfing the damned that are dragging the new arrivals in the boiling lava. Those who committed the greatest sins against God are getting a special treatment inside the temple where they are doomed to burn for eternity in the scorching flames.
VII. VIOLENCE: A place of intense torture where the horrific screams of the damned are eternally accompanied by the hellish beats of drums.
VIII. FRAUD: In Fraud the Demons enjoy altering the shape of souls, this is how they feed.
IX. TREACHERY: Lucifer lies here chained by the Angelic Seal which keeps him captive in the frozen environment.

Selected pages from Epiphany by Ian Jay.
Epiphany is about Eli, a deer kid in high school with a lot of issues— bad grades, careless friends, and a strained relationship with his preacher father, Henry. But when an errant truck puts Henry into critical condition, Eli seeks out Oscar, slacker ex-god of his family’s religion, to help recover his father. Things don’t go entirely as planned, and both Eli and Oscar will have to put everything they hold dear at risk in order to make things right again.
