Originally suggested some time ago, the idea has finally come true and is official now.

Uboachan is currently and actively working on the translation of Manga, Doujinshi and other fanworks related to Yume Nikki. The group behind the translations is Patchy Illusion Team. For those who don't know, we were originally a group oriented to game making/help. The team was disbanded, however, and I decided to take the reins and use it for this project. The name may ring a bell in some users.

We decided to create an all-purpose thread where we will publish new releases, post announcements, answer questions from the users and take suggestions. If you have something to say, this is the right place.

That being said, here's our first announcement: We are currently in the need of more people. If you want to give a hand, please, make sure to check the about page in our site and see what would you like to apply for:

http://scans.uboachan.net

You may also post in the thread, or send me a mail (hover over my name in the post).

More hands working on this means faster and better translations. This is a work done by the users for the users. And, as much as we all would love to translate manga as fast as possible, it is a rather time-consuming process prone to error. We're all human and we need to use our time for other things, such as work and/or college, or other people pointing out what we did wrong.

Please, notice no prior experience in any of these fields is needed at all. I personally don't have any problems with teaching people how to use gimp and what's the difference between a good and bad translation. Ultimately, we're doing this for our own enjoyment out of our own free will, so don't feel discouraged to give it a try if you want to participate. We don't bite.

What should be done about the current zoomer problem this fandom has? It's either full of fatalists who live off by their synthetic drugs, or ironic fans who laugh at others who look too deeply into things. Both love making shitty memes either way
Nowadays it's hard finding fans who actually love the game for what it is, and are also not hinged by what they do in their everyday life and their beliefs. Anyone else here still has a soft spot for YN, even if you haven't played it in forever?

There aren't any problems with the "fanbase", only you OP. Let people interpret and enjoy things how they'd like instead of trying to impose your shitty thoughts onto everyone. This entire thread is pretty sad and pathetic with the amount of people unironically supporting gatekeeping and whining about teenagers.
Just to be clear, I played the game mostly blind when I had launched it for the first time, and I consider it to be one of the most fascinating, impactful games I've ever played. Teenagers on whatever boogeyman site(s) you're thinking of aren't going to change my perception of the game and my experiences.

honestly this is a good opinion to have in a world where nothing is safe from terrible fans, I wish I could adopt it but I still find some gatekeeping necessary

 No.9796

>>9794
I agree with you.

I also feel empathy for the OP and like minded people as well. Change is hard to watch sometimes. I believe that this current hype will fade soon enough, like most things do. I don't think it's all a bad though, I think we all want YN to live on as long as possible and I hope the new fans that come out of it see what we saw in this game when we all first played it.

Sorry if I said anything wrong, I don't ever write here, but I think its nice that people still care so much about YN.

EXACTLY THAT

just because some people have different viewpoints and interpretations on a thing you like and engage with it differently doesn't mean they're inherently 'wrong' for engaging that way. they're having fun just like anyone else is

just because i use YN and its fangames as a means of exploring non verbal codes and signifiers and visual narrative analysis doesn't mean im right in that engagement, and someone making a funny meme about madotsuki doesnt make them wrong.

plus, dont let teenagers ruin ur favourite things, why would you let that happen. enjoying things is one of the few things we have so fighting isnt really helping anything. teenagers are teenagers let them be stupid

it isn't about 'your experiences' though. I agree with you in saying that your experience and thoughts on the game shouldn't be negatively effected by outward influences like le zoomers and what not. This is more about the fact that people like to congregate and express their feelings of said game with like minded people; it's entirely reasonable to be upset when a community you once felt attached to completely changes and entirely reasonable to gatekeep (to some extent, i don't mean harassing anyone or flat out telling them they're wrong but rather to want separate communities) your hobbies. Everyone has the right to enjoy the game as they want to and experience it as they want to; and that includes wanting to not interact with people who are simply not worth talking to in your eyes

since kikiyama is japanese, its anyones guess whether he was inspired by mesoamericans or africans

So I was browsing TV Tropes when I stumbled upon the Spiritual Adaptation page. In the video games subpage it said that "The David Lynch film Eraserhead has an adaptation in the form of Yume Nikki. The similarities between the two are uncanny." One of the main interpretations of the film is that the protagonist Henry Spencer is facing the troubles of fatherhood much like David Lynch was going through when he had his first kid. So what if in Yume Nikki, Madotsuki is actually pregnant and the whole game is Madotsuki's journey through motherhood. It might be her worrying on might what happen to her child if said kid grew up. She might be afraid of failing as a mom and her child living a terrible life. At least, I think that's what I think.

i cant believe what an unexpected huge ERECTION a fucking YUME NIKKI PIC is giving me

 No.9723

I'll go more in depth

Some of the characters in her dreams might actually be representations of this. The toriningens might symbolize how her child might be in teenage years. She might feel disconnected with her kid and not spend as much time with him or her. The picnic in the game might be how Madotsuki feels with her kid, that she feels like she's out of touch. Poniko might represent how her kid might not want to be with her, and her turning the lights on and off again might be remonstrant of a parent turn the lights on and off to get their kid to wake up. And Uboa, might represent how her child might hate her in the future. And Masada, given that his area gives of a comforting feel, might be Madotsuki's husband.

Even some of the effects might represent Mado's stress. Fat affect might not be fat, but the representation of a pregnant belly. The knife affect might represent abortion or child abuse. The snow woman and the oni effect might represent Madotsuki's mood swings during her pregnancy. The flute effect might be like a lullaby for a baby. The long hair effect might symbolize love, affection, gentleness, and care for ones baby, while the blonde hair effect might be Mado trying to seem hip and cool to her kid.

And the ending might be Madotsuki's fear of dying from child birth, and her baby never having her mother.

Was the thing with the quivering jaw based on this carving?

I was reading about monoliths and stumbled across the image. It looks relatively similar.
