104 Building Design - March 31 2008

Did you conduct any research before creating the backgrounds?
The entire team went on-location in Shibuya to get a feel of the town, and to provide the designers with reference material. We shot hundreds of photos of buildings, intersections and graffiti around the city. 

What iconic elements of the setting did you focus on?
Depending on the map, we treated streets themselves and building signage as the focus of many scenes

Could you explain the reasons behind the locations that were chosen?
We were originally planning to use all of Greater Tokyo to create a variety of battles and scenery. We eventually settled on Shibuya where we can best explore the iconic elements of contemporary Tokyo, such as fashion and subculture. We believed we could express those concepts with better focus by limiting the setting to Shibuya.
