Tokyo After the Apocalypse

tokyo5.jpgPink Tentacle (oh, tentacles!) points us to these fantastic images of Tokyo after the apocalypse, all overrun by nature. The two big ‘geek’ centers, Akihabara and Shibuya get the apocalypse treatment. It’s depressing to think about all the cool tech gear going to ruin in those areas. Note to Tokyo: Try to avoid the apocalypse if at all possible, and Godzilla too if you can. Thanks.

Apparently, they are photoshopped in various ways by Tokyo Genso (Tokyo Fantasy). Seeing as how I don’t speak Japanese, and I don’t trust the Google translator, I’ll take their word for it. In any case, some of the images are really cool. They have a very anime-ish feel to them, not surprising seeing as anime is a distinctly Japanese animation style. They remind me of Neon Genesis Evangelion, minus the giant robot fights. Which, if you think about it, could have laid waste to Tokyo and caused the eventual ruination of the the city. Cool!

Here’s one more cool pic. Visit the links above for more crunchy, apocalyptic goodness.

  1. They’re gorgeous, though, aren’t they? Just stunning.

    There was a TV show on, I think, the Discovery Channel, called “Life After People” which declared that one day, all the humans vanished. And then went on to extrapolate what would happen to the world left behind once we were gone. And it was creepy, and beautiful, and utterly fascinating.

    These images remind me of that. I think you might’ve just found my new desktop wallpapers. 🙂

  2. I wish they were bigger so they could be wallpapers. Chopping them together is too much work for me!

  3. Beautiful.  Thanks for reminding me of that DC show, Pete.  I had wanted to see it when it aired, but forgot all about it.

     

    Ditto on wanting them bigger.  

  4. Very cool. They do have a very anime style, although the feeling I got wasn’t so much Neon Genesis Evangelion, rather more of a Miyazaki vibe. It reminded me of that DC special too.
