shadow souji by shiroi-kamaitachi shadow souji by shiroi-kamaitachi
Introducing our version of Shadow Souji! >8DD

The one on the left belongs to :iconotaku-hime95:
His full concept, symbolism & explanations can be found here in Hime-chan's deviation --> [link]
This Shadow also had a major role in her fanfic.
It had a cool concept, so be sure to check it out~ ;) --> [link]

The one on the right is my version ^^
Concept & symbolism explanations here:

Representation: Hidden wishes

There's something that you wanted so much.
Day and night you secretly wished for it, all the time knowing that you can't have it.
From fear that everyone would laugh at you, you keep those wishes hidden and buried inside, never voiced out.
After awhile, you started losing your mind from it.

...Grant my wishes...


Behavior:
- Ready to do just about anything to get what he wants.
- Usually found continuously making white paper cranes.

Symbolism:
- paper cranes = hopes to make wishes come true
- has a traditional, shrine-like dungeon (shrines are one of the most common places where people go to to make wishes)

Design:
- I mainly stick to Izanagi's design elements :3
- following the symbolism, stuff are made to look traditional, added with shrine ropes & bells on the naginata.

Extra note:
Since I actually have 2 more versions of Shadow Souji, I give each one of them a different name for the sake of differentiation / so they don't get mixed up >_>"
Just for reference, the one here is called Tsuruji (鶴寺) :meow:
鶴 (tsuru) --> crane
寺 (ji) --> temple

Souji Seta / Yuu Narukami [Persona 4] (c) ATLUS

I would like to see what might be a 'true' Shadow form?

Maybe a huge bancho monster with a warped izanagi mask combined with the bells and shine symbolism. Like to show wanting to power to get whatever he wants.

I just realised that your shadow Souji has a kinda-sorta similar outfit to the cheer squad outfit in P4 Golden...

The fanfiction can't be found. Is there another place that I can read it or is there something I'm doing wrong?

Whoa, sorry >A<
The writer deleted the fanfiction because she planned to rewrite it.
Not sure whether she had plans to continue that rewritten version, though T___T

Thanks for your interest ;w;

Oh, this is a wonderful concept! I've read a couple fanfic on FF.net that had Shadow!Souji, but were never thought out this well! I love the idea that Souji has wishes of his own, but since he's the protag, he's not allowed to fufill them. And the art itself is amazing too <3

Thank you so much :la:
And that's a nice analysis :o
I was thinking somewhere along those lines when making this Shadow ^^
I find it interesting that everyone can practically make their own version of Shadow!Souji based on their experience when they're playing :D

I never thought up a Shadow!Souji, but I always find It fun to see what other people think his shadow would be like. The ones on ff.net leaned more towards an "I don't want to leave/don't want to be alone" feel, so seeing something else is always good. I think both points are quite valid; Souji doesn't get to fufill his own wishs as protag, and to fans he was never able to make any lasting friends if his parents were always on business trips and maybe even needed to move a lot because of it.

For some reason, I can't help but think the gunslinger is Yu's shadow and the samurai is Souji's shadow. xD It makes sense cause' their clothing are from two different time periods, the samurai existing before the gunslinger, just like how Souji existed before Yu.

The irony is that you can substitute Minato and Hamuko in their places, Minato holding an ebony evoker and Hamuko weilding her trademark naginata.

Also I've been playing Cry of Fear recently, and otaku-hime95's version looks like Simon! xD

Yours is definitely the most suave shadow I've ever seen. =3 I bet his berserker form is a sexy beast, just like his human form. ;)

(Sorry for late reply. Been offline x___x)

First of all, thanks for the comment *___*
I love reading your opinions XD
And I just noticed how what you said about substituting with Minato and Hamuko fits o___O,,

Haha, for my shadow Souji, I haven't actually designed his berserker form. Gotta try domeday, though XD
Thanks again, dear~ ^^,,

Haha, my shadow is actually first made for a pairing idea :iconheplz: *is shot*

But this time, I adapted it so that it becomes a more general idea about wishing ^^
So what this shadow wants depends on the player ;)
What you said can work, too :D

And thanks XDDD

yeah, i'd guess he would since yu has been moved around a lot. now he finally has friends he's gotten close to, and I don't think he'd want to let that go. but regardless I wish this was in that game, it'd be awesome! the show too!
