Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Came to a realization today as to why I enjoy Second Life so much as I was rereading YKK (Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō). Have been trying to find images from the YKK Manga that give me good internal and external views of Alpha house/cafe so I could recreate it in Second Life.
So I began from the beginning again, 17 year into the past. As I was reading I realized that Second Life today is just like Alpha world (or Aqua(Mars) from Aria for that matter), few people, but those you meet in general are friendly, and a big world empty of people yet full of amazing sites.
In fact many of the regions people have made, whether in a private one or on main land, mirror scenes for the YKK and Aria universes. Giant weird plants, forgotten broken cities, lonely houses in the middle of know where, Amazing New looking city & towns empty of people, and sights that can’t be explained, only seen for your self.
This all make Second life feel like a portal into Alpha or Akari worlds, places of calm, serenity, and beauty.
When every I explore Second Life, whether on foot, flying like superman, in a plane, boat, car, or Through a random gate address on the StarGate at my home, I regain that same feeling I get when reading or watching YKK and Aria.
A sense of peace, serenity, and a longing for a place in such a world. It’s the same longing i try to fill with every game I play and website I build. I can never truly fill that longing, but Second Life get me as close as I can to doing so, and lets me be part of that world for a brief time.
