The seven wonders of your high school as you get possessed by the spirits. How nice. (・∀・) As I mentioned in my compilation post here, Yuu Gen is a Situation CD whereby you experience getting possessed by different kinds of Japanese ghosts with the famous dummy head mic. Summer is a time where we like telling ghost stories to ‘cool off’. I’m not sure we got this tradition and my dad’s ghost stories were never frightening. (They were mostly bad oyaji jokes.)
Story: (click to enlarge)
This comprehensive map was amusing enough. The hitodama (human souls that glow like a fire) mark where each of the 6 Youkai (spirits) you come into contact with normally are. The spirits in human form, speak to you in the afternoon and lure you to themselves at night.
Mystery 1: The kamikakushi(disappearance of people) in the old dorms. “Hey did you know? In the place where the old dorms are is said to exist the grave of a Tengu. Perhaps after moving it, people who went there alone at night were said to mysteriously disappear. Some never returned…….”
Mystery 2: The will-o’-wisp in the cooking classroom. “Hey did you know? If you go to the Home-ed cooking classroom at night, a blueish-white will-o’wisp can be seen dancing around. It is said that the wisp is actually a Fox spirit who has lost his home and will possess any human it sees. Your consciousness gets dim slowly and finally…….”
Mystery 3: Being unable to move in the infirmary room. “Hey did you know? If you rest until night in the infirmary, a strange binding happen to you and you won’t be able to move. In the state where you can’t twitch even a finger, you will hear the sound of coming coming closer and closer to you in the dark. And when you strain your eyes to see………. Haha, what do you think it is….?”
Mystery #4: The piano can be heard in the empty music room. “Haha, did you know? There’s a rumour that you can hear the piano being played in a sad melody in the dead of the night. But NEVER peep in. Because if you’re caught by ‘It’, you will be forced to dance till you die to the tune of the music….
Mystery #5: The howling in the gym. “You know, have you heard this? There’s a horrible howling coming form the gym at night. If you open the door, it’s the end for you… ‘It’ will possess and follow you forever and ever……”
Mystery #6: The flower boy of the toilet. “You already know right? If you knock on the door of the last cubicle three times in the boy toilet at night, a voice will be heard saying “Come on in” If you tell your wishes to the flower boy there, he will grant them… is what they say. So come on to the toilet at night, yeah! Don’t hold back on anything!”
#1 The Tengu who seduces you actively “Hifumi”
Release Date: April 29
“You’re scared out of your wits and yet you won’t run. It’s my first time meeting a woman like you.”
He normally goes to school in a human form and has taken a liking to the deserted old dormitories. The more he likes a girl, the more he tends to bully her and he even uses his powers as Tengu to become invisible and plays tricks on others. But in reality he really wants to get along with humans and even wants a girlfriend. (lol) But he knows others are afraid of him so he is unable to take the next step. As a result, he is also awkward sometimes.
#2 The tsundere fox spirit “Zakuro”
CV: Sakurai Takahiro
Release Date: May 27
“I have no interest in stupid women. If you come close I’m going to possess you.”
When he is in human form he is a delinquent student and having caused incidents in school, he is on suspension now. Being fond of scaring humans he loves turning into Onibi (will o’wisp). Having lived for a long time, he is sly and looks down on humans. He hates humans but is extremely faithful to those who have done him good. He loves abura-age. (a kind of fried tofu)
#3 The sluggish eight-tailed Orochi “Iriya”
CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke
Release Date: June 24
“Shall I teach you fun things that you don’t know?”
Rich, with good grades and with the sexiness of an adult, he is highly popular in school. Having been sealed for many years, he is always tired and is often seen napping in class. Being tired of seeing so many different dreams he wishes for something exciting. He is weak to Cola and becomes drunk once he drinks it, and very sexy. (lol) *Orochi is a giant serpent.
#4 The haraguro cat spirit “Arahagi”
CV: Kaji Yuuki
Release Date: July 29
“Do you want to try getting controlled by me? I treat my toys carefully you know?”
A bishounen and is popular in school as an idol-like existence since he sings well. No one knows what he’s thinking and where he’s from and he’s actually evil despite looking amiacble and friendly. When he sees someone getting anxious due to his actions he smiles. But one way to beat him is to give him some catnip!
#5 The yandere Inugami “Toneri”
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke
Release Date: August 26
The problem child that is forever unable to graduate. In the track-and-field club, he has prodigy-level reflexes in sport. He is normally friendly and an idiot but once he likes someone he gets extremely attached and possessive. (Not a pun. (・∀・)) He loves meat. *Inugami means Dog-god
#6 The beautiful toilet Flower Boy “Hanawo”
CV: Midorikawa Hikaru
Release Date: September 30
“Hey, since we met here, don’t you think it’s such Fate!” *In the toilet
He rarely comes to school and is celebrity level in school due to his good looks. Sometimes ore-sama, sometimes gentle, he has lots of different faces to him. If he spots any lonely person he starts following them around, and loves it when people don’t catch onto his conversation and becomes unhappy if you talk too much.
I’m really looking forward to the acting of the seiyuus here. Will it be creepy and funny as I expected or will they incorporate something cute and sweet?
Get spooked! (or not :p) I recommend the Animate Tokutens 😉
