The summer holidays.

A town caged by nature, Okunezato.

One year ago in this town, her older brother disappeared without a trace.

Shaped like a fragment of the moon, a nostalgic atmosphere permeates the town. It is known for having many legends and folklore’s. As a result of the continued population decline, the amount of modern-looking buildings have increased in the main street. The town is starting to gain attention due to its status as a “mystery hot spot” amongst the youngsters in the underground scene.

One day, during summer vacation, the protagonist and university student Hanamaki Ichiko is invited by Kagutsuchi Hino, her childhood friend in the same university year level as her, to go to Okunezato in order to look for her disappeared older brother together. Hino had found the “Forbidden Okunezato Club”, a website in which its visitors discuss the mysteries and legends of Okunezato. Taking advantage of the offline meeting between the visitors that will take place during the summer holidays, he suggests to look into her brother’s disappearance during this time. With Hino having pushed her back, Ichiko wills herself to go to Okunezato.

The young men from the Forbidden Okunezato Club website had gathered at the Fuurin Hotel, the live-in chef Amari Isora, the cat lover otaku Kushinada Toa, the med student Tatehira Sousuke, and the owner of Fuurin Hotel Murakumo Yuzuki. 

The “other face” of Okunezato comes to light as rumors regarding the “Legend of the Dead” are treated as though they were fact. Everytime they follow the footsteps of her disappeared brother, mysterious events spark. The true existence of the forbidden grounds, and the legendary flower that only blooms in Okunezato…

The truth behind these incidents lead to a suprising and totally unexpected ending.

Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly


As she fell deeper and deeper into the darkness, she could hear the sound of rainfall.

Also, she heard a animalistic cry.

When she woke up, the young girl found herself in a Western-style mansion.

An unknown, terrible monster rushes to attack the confused girl.

As the young girl ran away from the monster, she thought:

“Where is this place?”

“Who am I, anyway?”

Having lost pretty much all of her memories, she eventually met and joined up with some men in the same circumstances as her.

They all held weapons that were strange handguns.

From there on out, with their lives at stake, they must participate in the “Black Butterfly Hunt”, and collect “Kaleidoscope Shards” possessed by these monsters.

Inside the Western-style mansion in which despair and betrayal swirls, will they be able to find hope in their futures?

Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk


The sequel to Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly.

In a town controlled by two families, the Farshi (Falcon) and the Wolg (Wolf), a dreadful creature known as the witch, whose appearance is known to be a woman with red eyes, is said to cause misfortunes. 

Our heroine Eiar lives in the same town, but because her right eye turns red whenever she’s feeling strong emotions, she has to live her life pretending to be a boy named Jed, lest the people persecute her as a witch. 

Despite the frequent conflicts between the Falcon and Wolf families, Eiar lives a normal life working as a handyman, until she is asked by the church’s acting priest to look for a treasure called the “Kaleidovere”, a symbol of peace in the town.

In her search for it, Eiar discovers the secret of the town, of the people around her, and of her own past.

Joy Divison “Love Will Tear Us Apart” 1980. Factory Records. Darkly post punk in an enigmatic format: Side A’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” is at 45 rpm. Side B is the even darker “These Days” but also has an unlisted second rendition of “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” both at 33-1/3 rpm which is startling if you forgot to switch the speed (which, of course, I did). Tucked inside the sleeve is a bonus flexi-disc 7″ soundsheet of “Komakino” (catalog FAC 28) and the excellent, highly danceable instrumental “Incubation” (catalog FAC Reject). Plus, just like the “Love Will Tear Us Apart” single, the flexi has an unlisted track, the vaguely industrial instrumental “As You Said.” The note on the record states that “This soundsheet should not have cost you anything, wherever or however it was obtained.” According to Discogs, the flexi-discs were record store giveaways and the tracks are from the Britannia Row Studios session for Closer, March 18-30,1980 that didn’t end up on the album. 

“Love Will Tear Us Apart” was Joy Division’s first hit, reaching #13 in the UK and #42 on the US dance chart. The title also appears on Ian Curtis’ grave marker; he committed suicide one month after the single’s release. 

The children who were victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre

(1) Caroline Previdi

Caroline Previdi was one of the 20 young children killed in the massacre that left the town of Newtown, Conn. grieving. 

(2) James Mattioli

James Mattioli, 6, was another one of the young victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Fondly called “J” for short, the energetic young boy loved math, sports and cuddling on the couch with his mom at the end of the day.

(3) Daniel Barden

Daniel Barden, 7, was another of the victims. His father Mark is a musician, and he and his family wrote the following words in memorial of their son: “Everyone who has ever met Daniel remembers and loves him. Words really cannot express what a special boy Daniel was. Such a light. Always smiling, unfailingly polite, incredibly affectionate, fair and so thoughtful towards others, imaginative in play, both intelligent and articulate in conversation: in all, a constant source of laughter and joy. Daniel was fearless in his pursuit of happiness and life. He earned his ripped jeans and missing two front teeth. Despite that, he was, as his mother said, ‘Just So Good.’ He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world. Our hearts break over losing him and for the many other families suffering loss.”
