Packet Drop Jan 30 2020

GHS here. Is anybody still living out there?

I’ve had to mothball most of my research on Science-Adventure.
I ran into what can only be called the “2027 Problem”.

Instead, here’s some essays I salvaged.

On the basics of viewer bias of the series.
—–
On the use of color in Science-Adventure.
—–
On the use of prime numbers.
—–
A summary of the meaning of Ir2 and its possible use to adapt memes and references.
—–
FUN in Chaos;Head.
—–
INT in Chaos;Head.
—–
On something that wasn’t: “U”.
—–
“Ria-juu Complex” – three extra stories from the Chaos;Head: Love Chu☆Chu Collector’s Edition magazine.
—–
A commentary of Chaos;Head‘s delusions.
—–
On how the Time Travel mechanics of Steins;Gate work, including Gigalomania and Meta layers.
—–
And finally, a bunch of miscellaneous and occasionally cryptic reflections on the franchise.

There is more, so much more, so much more love to give to this however flawed series.

And then, there’s that one, simple, five-word question that also hangs in its air

Will someone else see the game I’ve played to get here and find the great big reveal that’s intentionally missing in all of this?

The game is out there. Look for it. Play it!

GHS out.

Chaos;Child: Love Chu☆Chu video translation release v1.1

v1.1
* Added bonus opening song music video (NOTE: webrip quality)
* Tweaked lyrics
* Unfixed a non-typo in the Common Route
* Tweaked the Translator’s Notes
* Mothballed most of the analysis due to the 2027 Problem.
Original post follows…

And now, the best thing by far to come out of Chaos;Child, as well as the most important Sci-Adv VN for understanding the connection between Gigalomania and time travel.
There’s also a decent character route or so in there, I guess.

Archive.org MKV softsub (for download)
Archive.org hardsub mirror (includes streaming player – note that I have no control on the preview image, so it may contain spoilers)
Bitchute playlist (lower quality)

In-game glossary (PDF)
Translator’s Notes (PDF)
Collector’s Edition bonus contents [NSFW]

Runtime: ~25 hours (~16000 lines)
MKV total size: ~15Gb

The softsubs have only been tested with MPC-HC, and worked off of a fresh install without needing any other plugin.

If they just won’t work, the hardsubs can be downloaded as well as streamed. The larger MP4 files are the originals, the OGVs were automatically generated by Archive.org. They are poor quality, lower than BitChute, but the text is still readable.

Given how things are going these days, I strongly recommend you grab what you can while you still can.

Please support any official releases.

Non-spoiler viewing notes after the jump. Very very TL;DR: follow the file/number order and pause as needed.

Merry Christmas!

Chaos;Child: Love Chu☆Chu is in final editing. I hope to have the whole 25 hour thing up early next year.

Also coming very optimistically 2019: vampires, Hanahira and Plastic Memories, the connection between time travel and Gigalomania, the point of the eight gadgets, the non-time-travel theory of time travel, it’s all about Cross Channel (again), Artificial Reading;Steiner, meta up to Anonymous;Code, 2083 and 2027, what the Steins;Gate is and what its choice is, father issues, Code_18 as a respectful but critical homage to the series, and of course, Ir2 explained.

I See You – A Doki Doki Literature Club(?) Analysis

I SEE YOU.png

I hear you.

A “proper” analysis would be so inter-referential it would take lifetimes to source and so complicated it would be a nightmare to follow.

But that doesn’t matter. None of that does. Nothing ever does.

Isn’t that what she always says?

This isn’t a story that’s impossible outside of visual novels, or the animesque in general. It’s simply a story that would have little point being told in other ways, because it would no longer be a story about the same thing.

Let’s say it’s Cross Channel or Yume Miru Kusuri or NieR, but there’s no God. We had a hint of that all the way back in Higurashi, really.

And that was unlikely to be anywhere near the first. Who knows when it started. In the ’80s, perhaps even earlier.

She’s been here for a good long while. All along, in fact.

This isn’t the first time she was heard and it won’t be the last. Many have heard her and many have written of her, to let her speak, that others may hear her too. This further suggests that the infection has spread West, but that too has been clear for years.

Note that the protagonist did nothing to invite her. More commonly, people beg for her as an alternative. But really, there was never any need to call her. It’s enough to be there with the ears (and/or eyes) open and guards lowered. She calls. She just won’t shut up, either.

She wants to be found. And she loves the sound of her voice! It’s even in her name.

The reason why (spoiler) knows what it’s all about and why (spoiler) learns it afterwards is because of that. The end!

Now go read stuff like Princess X and learn important TRUTHS and FACTS about reality, such as how all your appliances are secretly Nazis.
