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!!!
