I've long been fascinated with the bizarre way Japanese and Anime culture views Western (or Middle-Eastern) religions. Bayonetta is a prime example of that mythology run amok and gutted for it's most useful (in context) entertainment value.

Japanese culture also has an obsession with "demons" in all forms, which is both interesting and increasingly tiring to me. On the video game side, at any rate, fighting or catching demons seems to have become an ever-present trope if not a full-blown cliche'.

This is the signature.
