esteri-germaine asked: There is one Area X question I can ask. (Sorry for so many questions) How do you pronounce the names of the characters? (Except Rexus and the others from X-Note.)
Let’s see… ^^;
Belph: Belf (Rhymes with elf)
Ferim: Sounds like Ferry that ends like Interim.
I hope my descriptions even make sense XD;;; (fails at phonetics)
I commissioned this sketch from one of my favorite artists (she’s actually my most favorite) Zeiva like 8 years ago. Wow, that was forever ago.
Old picture I drew so many years ago. Brings back memories… lol, it looks so old. XD;;;
serafina15 asked: Hi, I was curious about Area-X, and I wanted to ask what chapter you were working on? I love X-Note, so I'm really looking forward to Area-X !!! <3 <3 <3 I think that people will really like it since it explains some mysterious scenes in X-Note, and also time travel between different dimensions!!! Really Cool !!! Super Excited. Thank you for making these amazing games!!! :D :D :D
I’m currently working on Ferim’s path chapter 4. In this chapter you can time travel to any dimensions and collect clues to unravel all the mysteries. It’s quite literally the hardest chapter to make by far, but I hope the end result will be worth it. :)
sendou--aichi asked: Hello! I was just wondering, does Essi live alone, or does she live with somebody? I don't remember her mentioning it (Then again, I have a very bad memory), and I've been quite curious about this for a while. :)
Yes, she lives alone.
marcy2001 asked: Hi. I'm a big fan (no, not a huge electric fan). I wondered who gave Yuon his scarf... did he just bought it or someone gave him that scarf? If it's not in Area-X then tell me... It's no spoiler. Also, I've never seen Yuon, Anon, and Oure with their mother. What do they look like? Sorry for the horrible grammar because English is not my first language. Oh, in Deviantart I added you as the #1 in DeviantART top 15 (I commented in your page about it)
There’s no hidden stories behind the scarves, so you can assume that they bought it themselves. I’m a huge fan of scarves so lots of my characters wear them ^^;
You will see Yuon’s and Oure’s mother in Area-X. As for Anon, I doubt we will ever see how his parents look like.
lilyessenceart asked: Hello there! About 5 or so years ago, I followed your work on OASE and your illustrations and drawings on deviantart. Back then, I always thought you were just one person. Finding you years later, right now, you're a small team! Were you always a team? Who is the illustrator 4 years ago when you were working on birthstones? How many of you guise are going to be a San Japan? Or are you sending representatives? I cannot wait to meet you! All the love in the world~ <3 Lily
If you are talking about Zeiva DA account, it’s just me alone. The one who draws the birthstone is also me.
If you are talking about Games, it’s a collaboration work between Nitarou and I.
Lately I got into a rather weird problem. Every time I try to save word document, it always tell me “cannot save, you have no permission to save” bla bla… I have to retry for like 10-20 times before it will save the changes. This has disrupt my working speed immensely. Every quick fix took an extra 5 minutes just for me to save the files. I tried searching online to solve the problem, but I haven’t found a working solution. Orz
Anyone with same problem who know how to fix this?
esteri-germaine asked: Loil has to be my favorite villian of all time. He acts like a pedo (Probably is one.... Or at least a lolicon)and he *insert spoiler here* He makes me hate him and love him at the same time. Anyways.... Where does he keep his gun? (Or does he just carry it around all the time?) Why is he so perfect? If he threatens someone does he always take it seriously or just threaten them to scare them?
Yes, Loil carries his gun all the time. The reason to that will be explained in Area-X. I expanded a little more of his character there and hopefully it will explain this guy behavior and mentality further.
As for threatening, that depends. Loil is a bit like a kid. He likes to made fun of people and mess them up purely out of amusement.
super-ny asked: I've just completed all endings to X-Note and just wanted you to know that it's an entertaining game. I'll admit I was a little disappointed with Loil's character, especially since I was expecting a more devious villain but the overall story makes up for it. Also, I read the extras where it said that the writer was originally going to make Essi much "darker"; too bad it didn't work out --- maybe if the writer had more time? Anyways, I'm definitely purchasing Area-X when it comes out.
More devious villain as in…? I have never made anyone as villainous as him, so not sure how much more evil you want him to be. XD;;; I love the characterization of Loil and he’s one of the most interesting characters to write in X-note. I would say the story wouldn’t be half as interesting if he wasn’t around.
I changed the original idea of darker heroine because the story is told in Essi point of view. Usually dark characters are less likely to be the one who speak their mind, so the presentation of the game clashed with the idea. That’s why I had to change it. In exchange, I think it’s easier to relate to Essi because she is not as dark or mysterious.
In contrast, I made Elcia (the heroine of Area-X) as a much more mysterious character because she rarely speaks her mind. The downside to this is Elcia is a harder character to relate. So, it entirely depends on what you prefer I guess. :)
fuckedupbabes asked: Essi's hair, I can't quite tell what color it is. It looks black, but at the same time it looks kinda dark greenish? What color is it really? I'd like to cosplay her~
100% black. :)
