we all float down here

"Why design characters which must forever float with the assistance of a stand?"

I'm pretty sure that when an artist is working on a design that's intended to end up as a 3d model in a video game, toy collectors are so far off his or her radar that we might as well not exist. After all, it's not as if video games depend on merchandise sales the way so many contemporary anime series do.

Actually, your summary of a Persona game is pretty good. The Persona series are 50% JRPG and 50% social sim. The western market... doesn't so much produce social sims, unless you count the companions in BioWare games. It's very much a peanut-butter-and-chocolate type of combination. It *shouldn't* work, but it does, and very well.

(Mind, I've only played Persona 3 FES, but I expect the tone of 4 is very similar. I'm patiently waiting for Persona 4 Golden to be released for the PS3 on PSN.)
