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:


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.

Apart from some of the music in the game, such as the Kalimba and Monoko events, can you guys think of any other African influences in the themes of the game?


These are meso-american themes arent they? not african


File: 1640392356129.png (308.67 KB, 640x480, ClipboardImage.png)

many feel central african. the rave monkey looks a lot like bantu masks for example

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

but the music is definitely more african than mesoamerican


That's right, they're from the Paracas culture in Peru.

Maybe Anansi was an influence?

Some of the stories have him shapeshift in order to evade opponents

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


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.


That, actually sounds interesting


Happy Mother's Day!!!

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.

One of my favourite threads was "Music that reminds you of Yume Nikki", so I thought I'd start a new one!

To wait until the morning train arrives
Don't you dare look back

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?

thats some k mentality shit tbh. i'm happy the more exposure the game gets.


i feel the same way, this isn't exclusively about yume nikki but sometimes i see zoomers who are into other niche-ish things i like and i get so excited to talk to them about it. and the moment i finally do try to talk about it they admit to knowing totally nothing about it except for it just looking cool. overall just the state of users all over the internet has just declined, its hard just to have a good conversation anyway. doesnt help these people infest everywhere.


I think people confuse the general population for 'younger people/zoomers'
I think that most people were always like this, and most 'normies' for a lack of a better term always had mainly vanity-centric interests in things.
The only reason people are confusing that with younger people is that the internet is simply the easiest it's ever been to participate in, and that results in more normies using the internet, resulting in the current generation having the most access to the internet than any prior generation before, resulting in the confusion that its 'young people' that are the issue in fandoms rather than just normies/ironic fans.

Not much can be done to control what other people do online, so best to do what you can in your own life, or your children's lives.

Best thing to do is probably never let your kids on the internet until they're older, like 18. That way they don't get involved in things they shouldn't until they fully understand it. Plus it's just a good idea anyways.


Its become popular to have a niche interest, but as usual for normies they can only engage at the most surface level
