    "That's why I attempt to do things with it that Hollywood movies can't do!"
    That's so true, Hiroya Oku made a masterpiece that will be remembered for decades to come!

    just because the dinosaurs were alive dosnt mean it was inspire by jurassic park. the only thing they had alike is that the dinosaurs were alive, and they were brought to life in a completely different way.

    if he did get inspire by them he would had mention them on list above.
    I didn't say he copied them, you don't have to do everything exactly the same as the film to be inspired by it. He might have been watching tomb raider and saw the statue scene and said to himself "these statues look exactly like the sensoji temple statues and is a pretty cool place for a fight scene." that is enough to say he was inspired. Because the enemies from the tomb raider film are similar, he used a lara croft look alike as a character, and he said that he uses action films as inspiration for scenes, it is pretty safe to assume that he was inspired from the film tomb raider. Just as it is safe to assume he was inspired from Jurassic park because he used dinosaurs and that he mentioned it as one of the films that he got his inspiration from, adding more importance to it.

    Not to mention there was a dinosaur exhibit going on at Makuhari Messe (where the mission took place) around the time the chapters were written.

    I am surprised that Ghostbusters was not some sort of inspiration to Oku. The hunts are very much like Ghostbusters with the whole alien hunts.

    Do we have a name for the character?
    Looks a little like the early Kishimoto design to me.

    Awesome. *Report*
    In peaceful sedation I lay half awake, and all of the panic inside starts to fade.
    Hopelessly drifting, bathing in beautiful agony.

    googled the temple and found this and this and the thousand hand in this thread is in vietnam, not Senso-ji

    I am confident that 'Tomb Raider' was not the first to display magic statues.

    lol it's not like there's a lot of detail in these characters faces. Take away the hair and everyone looks the same.
