    As for why I’ve been depressed for the past 5 years

    Perhaps a more useful post this time…

    I guess it is useful to talk about personal thoughts from time to time. Perhaps I’ve grown less embarrassed talking about myself due to making my last few posts?

    If anyone is going to care to read, anyways. (*Prepares myself for absolutely no one caring*)

    So I’d like to talk about the reason why I’ve been so depressed for the past 5 years. And it has everything to do with what I think is wrong with this world, this culture. Or Western culture (the most influential at the moment), to say the least. Or rather, what it is missing. You see I do think that popular culture is something that is very important to the development of human society and civilization, so if we don’t get it right, human society will be very screwed, I believe.

    And what I believe it is missing is a popular “independent culture” free from commercial influence. We do have an independent culture, but not as big and influential the one that I believe sets a good example, the doujin culture in Japan, which has been one of the biggest influence on culture in Japan. And I believe that at the root of this, are their doujin comics and events for them, like Comic Market (Comiket).

    When I first heard of Comiket, I thought, perhaps we have something like that here, though it gradually sank in that we don’t. And so I tried looking it up on the Japanese Wikipedia, how Comiket and the doujin culture started and such, and tried my best to understand with Google Translate (I couldn’t read Japanese at all back then), and not getting any results, tried experimenting with some thoughts I had. Comiket, after all, just started with around 12 circles and not more than a 400 participants. So if only I had people who I could get to go along with this.

    And then I realized, I had absolutely no close friends who I could count on to go along with this, and had absolutely no idea on how to reach out to people in real life. I firmly believed it was possible, and I still do. But my real-life connections are just so few, and so I grew terribly lonely, even though before I was completely fine even if I was by myself. And it was because I needed to find people in order to make my dream come true. Losing interest in everything else, I thought for hours every day about how to make this come about, with no good results.

    Eventually I thought, that perhaps online attention might be a good way to find people who might like this idea. And so, here I am. Yeah, the reason why I’m looking for people who would like to meet up is precisely for this reason. I guess that those who live too far from Massachusetts can’t do much about this as of now. Ah, I suppose that I’ll surely get no results if I don’t work harder. No hard work, nothing gets done.

    About the last few posts

    Apologies for spamming my blog with the exact same post several times. It is just that when I first saw people talking shit about mogeko, and then about evilhairbrush’s post, I felt so angry about it, I couldn’t help express it. Even though I hold in my feelings most of the time. If I think there is one thing wrong with this world, more than dictatorships or anything else it’s people like those who would complain about nonexistent fictional crimes, and would want to go thought-police on other people’s imaginations. It’s something that I feel very strongly about, which is also the reason why I used strong language. (There’s not much else I feel so strongly about, so I’ll probably never use such language again, unless I ever encounter this again, which I might not) Anyways, I’ll be going back to my translations and stuff……

    Reply to wadanoharaandthegreatbluesea: ah yes yes, it’s just that I’m not so fond of posting things on my blog that I think are “not so useful” (i. e. personal thoughts), so I did have to go a little out of my principles to make my last few posts.

    Reply to freejolyne: ah, well, I do sorta have a dream of one day being able to create a doujin-like culture in the U.S. If I can change culture enough, perhaps those pro-thought-police people will no longer have a voice.

    The people I hate most in this world

    Just found about the Mogeko thing today. I don’t know much about Mogeko, and never played her games, but to those “people” who would complain about fictional depictions of rape of non-existent persons, I can only say one thing. Fuck you all, and go die in a ditch already. You are of no benefit of humanity, and I will be happy when every single one of you will disappear from the face of this Earth. I don’t use swear words often, but I absolutely HATE people like that. In fact, hate is not strong enough of a word. I absolutely despise them. They are just the worst people ever.

    Especially “feminists.” Now by “feminists,” (notice the quotation marks) I don’t mean “people who believe in gender equality.” If we’re going by that definition, I myself am quite the feminist. In fact, I may actually believe that the female half is superior and should be the ones in higher positions. But I have absolutely no respect for those who complain about fictional crimes done on non-existent persons. They must be either brain-dead, or just plain malicious.

    Red World translation complete

    Due to staying with a family living in Wuhan, Hubei that did not have good internet, I wasn’t able to upload it until now. But I finally got a chance to use internet! Hooray!

    Title: Red World
    Author: Nao, of Season of Twilight (夕闇の季節)
    Author’s twitter: https://twitter.com/nao0327s
    Published: 2012 August 02
    Last updated (translated version): 2014 July 22 07:42:02 UTC 
    Requires RPG Maker 2000 RTP.

    A short simple game compared to the previous one, Paranormal Syndrome. But I liked it. Like the previous one, it has no multiple endings.

    It will require setting your computer’s locale to Japanese, as well as the RPG Maker 2000 RTP!! For details, see the post concerning Paranormal Syndrome.

    There is also a “Time Attack mode” you can access by holding Shift as you start a new game. I recommend trying this only after completing the game once already.

    By the way, Nao has announced the creation of yet a third game, starring Himuro Hitoshi as the main character. It’ll be some time before it gets finished, though.

    Another slight change of plans?

    So yeah. I don’t exactly mean to continue putting off Charon’s great series of horror games, but when I see a work as great as Little Red Riding Hood’s Wolf, another Wolf RPG Editor Horror game that has gotten much recognition lately, I couldn’t resist. This will be right after UTOPIA Fantasy Horror Adventure. After that, Charon’s games.

    EDIT: seeing how the author is still editing the game and making bug fixes, I’ve decided to put this after all of Charon’s games.

    To any followers in the Boston area

    A general call for a meet-up

    For a long time, I’ve had a dream to one day be able to create gatherings dedicated to one’s own works that one would bring, like drawing and comics. But even if it is just to have a get-together to talk about the games, it is something I’d be very happy about! I’m hoping that at least someone reading this near Boston might be interested, even if I have to wait for a very long time before that happens. Well, please do respond if so.

    Slight change of plans

    Though I’ve been planning to do Charon’s series of games immediately after Red World, I’ve decided to do one more thing before getting to Charon’s series, since I’ve just got my response from the creator, Shintaro, of this RPG Maker horror game game that has been of recent fame, titled, “UTOPIA Fantasy Horror Adventure.”

    Seems like Shintaro, the creator of this game, has been hoping that it’d be translated into English, so I’ll make no delays here. In any case, Charon’s series of games will be immediately after this.

    Evil Lord Girl Elly updated

    After I notified miyako about 2 bugs in the game, the game was updated to version 1.23. There’s not that many changes, but to point out what exactly was changed other than those bugs, which I fixed beforehand: (possible spoilers below)

    Evil Lord Girl Elly, translation complete

    Evil Lord Girl Elly is quite original in concept. There is a very good reason why it is my most favorite RPG Maker/Wolf RPG Editor game so far, and.I most certainly highly recommend it.

    The secret items in some areas are truly difficult to find. There are one or two gems in each stage, and one “special item” in each stage. It is recommended to set your computer’s system locale (default language for non-unicode programs) to Japanese, or else you’ll see some messed up text here and there. As always, if you find anything off about the translation, or text I missed, please contact me.

    Next, I’ll be translating a game I’ve been putting off for a long time. Red World, the follow-up game to Paranormal Syndrome. Also, I did mention something about Healer’s Yell, I think… I’ll probably get that translated some time in the middle, as it won’t take long.
