Yokai#01

 
 

SHISEN

-視線 -

 

Original gadget: CCTV x Edo period clock

This no-gender yokai may be your ally or your enemy. Who knows who they work for.

Shisen can often be seen at the top of electric light poles individually or in groups, staring at what they see. It is unknown how many of them exist and how they use their recordings.

「視てる視てる。SHISENが視てる。」
"The SHISEN is watching you."

Design 1: The yokai's name SHISEN 視線 is written together with the year 1984. Two sides of a story.

Design 2: The eye tattoo on the yokai's hands gives a mythical and astrological link to this yokai's power
"Past , Present, Future"

Design 3: The eyeball pattern of the kimono jacket shows the infinite amount of CCTV in the town
"We are here to serve you 🙏."

"I see things and will remember them forever."
