Now that I think about it, what is that contraption-like thing Chishio's wearing? Kind of looks like a chest harness to me. And speaking of which, here, have some artwork of Chishio found from the blog. Closest thing to official artwork right now:
And the blog entry apparently talks more about development of the character so can anyone translate it?
Mr. Fukuta from the scenario team mentions an example case that was scrapped. It took place in a little mountain village that worshiped the Tengu. Near its outskirts was a western-style castle, which was rumored that a vampire resided within. After the vampire was killed, a witness saw a Tengu appear from the scene of the crime.
Well, that's fine and dandy, but the issue comes with a certain piece of evidence at the scene: a long and bright red object. At first glance, it seems like a chili pepper. In actuality, it's supposed to be the broken nose of a Tengu. Yet, since Apollo isn't very good with mythology, he and Athena head off to look for nearby restaurants that work with chili peppers. Later on in the case, when Apollo looks for that turnabout, he comes upon the realization that it's actually the Tengu's nose.
In this case, it ends up "limiting upon the player's imagination", so to paraphrase. Only those who are more familiar with Tengu legend and folklore would better understand the connection made. Because they always write the scenarios so that the majority of players can understand them easily without needing extra trivia knowledge, this case idea was scrapped.
Mr. Fuse (?) from the scenario team describes Chishio as someone who completely lives up to his name. However, the team had some trouble with exactly how they could describe someone like him. They went with several types of introductions, to no avail.
Then, Mr. Fuse (?) the art director (not related to the other Mr. Fuse) drew up Chishio based on such suggestions. He added the chest cast to let Chishio make squeaking sounds and sweat a lot to add to his hot-blooded image. (The conversation between the two men is pretty funny because Yamazaki can't tell which one is talking.) In any case, the image stuck.
Somewhere along the lines, his testimony consisted of a whole load of grunts and yells. Needless to say, it was scrapped.
Next week is even more stuff from the scenario team.
