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. You can also view these images in the DOD/NieR Image Gallery here.
Just so that people aren’t confused when you come here, I’ve added a new URL to be directed to this blog. Since we’re shifting into a new world after DOD3, I thought we need to expand beyond it.
Whether you load drakengard-3.com or nier2.com, you will see the same blog so you won’t miss out on any new and breaking information.
I’m also thinking about updating the title of the main Facebook page to reflect both the Drakengard and Nier worlds.
But for the time being, I’ve updated the blog to use a NieR2 themed top image, so please don’t be confused if you load drakengard-3.com and see the Nier image. xD We’re merging both worlds here now. <3
I’ve been so busy, I have not had the time nor the energy to make an official post here about the recent news at E3 about a new NieR game. I’ve heard and seen people be very shocked at this news, but… I dunno. I sort of felt it coming for a while. Here are a couple things that made me wonder whether or not a new instalment in the series was coming:
Theatrhythm – Many songs from NieR appeared in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call.
Lord of Vermilion – The cards of Kaine and Emil/No7 were updated for LoV3.
YoRHa – Multiple songs from the NieR soundtrack were used in the YoRHa play.
I don’t really know whether or not these are clear indications pointing to a new NieR title, but the fact remains that NieR, although it’s been five years since its release, has been out there, reminding people that it exists.
I’ve just edited the timeline image to include a couple more recent additions to the franchise, including the DOD3 Story Side Novel and possible position of the new Nier title.
I started working on this many months ago, but it’s finished now. This is the 2 page bit about the fictitious DOD4 that was printed in the DOD 10th Anniversary -World Inside- materials book. It details a bunch of fake story ideas for a nonexistent DOD4. The likewise fake interview regarding it, too, is quite amusing.
Anyone is welcome to use this image and/or information held within it as long as you do not further edit or crop anything out and you cite your source. I’ve already placed it in the main Images Gallery at the links below.
I posted my English version of the chapter a couple days ago, but I’ve been too busy to post about it before now. Please feel free to take a look and let me know if you spot any goofs for me to fix. Just click the image above. Thanks!
