「Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Demi-fiend... Can you survive?」
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.
Can we talk about the negotiations in Soul Hackers?

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army is coming to the PlayStation 3 in North America as a PS2 Classic this week, Sony have announced via the PlayStation Blog.
You may recall that Atlus reprinted both Raidou Kuzunoha games last year in North America. Raidou also made a guest appearance in Soul Hackers for the Nintendo 3DS.
Everyone keeps kicking me out of their homes. What kind of RPG is this!?
