Butterflies & Hurricanes - the Lore and Philosophy of MegaTen/Persona
Hosted by Kit
Think you can't change the world? Think again! Charles Dunbar (of studyofanime.com) and Jasmine "Kit", who have brought you panels on Japanese sacred culture, dive into the depths of the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona series of games to bring you sacred culture and philosophy - and butterflies! The Shin Megami Tensei (MegaTen) games and the spinoff series Persona, hugely popular RPGs for the past 20 years or so, not only have references to Shinto and Buddhist concepts and creatures, but through the lens of sacred culture and complex gameplay, even explore what it means to be human.
