According to the newest issue of ILCA P@pper (Vol.05), some sort of “Reality & Games” event will be announced soon. In very Yoko Taro fashion, information on this topic is quite cryptic at the moment, but hopefully we’ll have a clearer idea of what’s going on in the next issue of ILCA P@pper, however the exact release date has yet to be announced.
Here are all the photos and videos that I took on the way to and at TGS. The second half are pictures from the Cosplay Collection Night of the cosplay group “Movi’n!” who featured characters from NieR! Be sure to visit their page on Twitter from the link below.
On the way to TGS!
I rode from Yokohama to Tokyo in the Green Car and enjoyed a little drink. This is one of my frequent standbys. <3
I was planning on doing two cosplays: Kung Fury and the “girl in black” from NieR2. I was pretty much already wearing my Kung Fury cosplay (minus the gloves and headband), so the entirety of my NieR2 cosplay was in the suitcase.
Stopped for lunch at BK, just out of Kaihin Makuhari Station.
The main entrance… everyone stops to take a photo. <3
This is a view of Halls 1-3 just to show how many people were present… Wow. It was real fun dragging my suitcase through that.

Congrats to David Sandberg and his Kung Fu posse of talented actors, crew, staff, backers, fans… anybody and everybody who had a hand in making this hell of an amazing ride through time, as seen through an 80s tinted lens.
Kung Fury hits 20 million views!
I was pretty late to the party since I never used Reddit prior to watching, so I wasn’t able to help out during the Kickstarter phase. In retrospect, I’m really upset about that, but I hope there will be another chance sometime to help support the creative innovation of this team.
It’s not much nor very good, but here’s a little photo edit of me during an “I’m bored!” solo photo session one night in celebration of the 20 million views. ^^;
A new chapter of TSND was released on July 25th which deals much more on Kuroi’s past. If you have any questions related to the English translation, please refer to my FAQ page. I will most likely not respond to inquiries regarding when an English release will be available. Thanks.
The new RPG by Square Enix for iPhone and Android, which was revealed this past April, will feature unique dungeons from other SQEX games such as NieR Replicant (7/16), Dewprism (7/17), and Valkyrie Profile (7/18).
The Town Cursed by Shades: The Aerie, 1F
You’ve encountered a Shade and enter battle.
The Shade from NieR uses a stomp attack that causes paralysis. The spherical shades attack with magic bullets that are all too familiar. Hook also makes an appearance, as seen below.
Pre-registration to obtain some free in-game items will close by the end of tonight (Japan time). The game is currently available for downloads but cannot be played until 11am tomorrow morning.

Since very few people have even heard of Yoko Taro’s stage play, I wanted to either translate the script or at least write a brief summary of its contents. I asked for permission to translate it directly, but due to various copyright issues and the fact that I am just a fan hardly doing any official work, I doubt I will be given an official OK.
Therefore, I’ve decided on the latter, only writing up a [hopefully] brief summary of the play. I will continue updating this in segments until it’s completed.
I’ve found several typos and inconsistencies between the script and what actually happens on stage. For right now, I will merely describe and/or translate the script as it is and make edits later.
I’ve posted my translations from the most important parts from the Dengeki interview in a previous post, but here are my scans of the actual article in the magazine. I’m very sorry, though; my scanning/editing skills are not that great, so I cannot splice the pages as seamlessly as others with more skill can.
