At this point, I’m so unsure of this whole thing that I’m starting to misread “oversea” as “overdose.” Personal bias is a scary thing, ain’t it.
I’m always telling people, “You know you’re not gonna make any profit, right?” but in the end they’re grown adults who can make their own decisions.
Anyways, enough of the self-advertising (if you can even call it that). Onwards to talking about TTL!
TTL encourages fans to create derivative work of lain. However, I thought it might be weird to mix official with fan creations, so I’ve just been lurking and enjoying everyone’s creations.
But, it is the 25th anniversary after all, so I figured we should put together something special. Even if it's a small community, we want to bring attention to the great content that’s being made, and see if there's anything we can do to create a system where everyone can connect (although it might not get that far). That was our goal when we were planning the 25th anniversary website.
I'm sure it will be announced when the site opens, but the illustrator that Anique & Kasagi approached was someone who created some great fan content as per TTL.
Speaking of NFTs, I have been following news about NFTs since the early days. But to be honest, I’ve always thought it smelled fishy, like a game for sharks and whales (typical rich people stuff, y’know?).
I felt uneasy the whole time as I watched the value of Ethereum plummet, and wondered if one could report that as a loss on their taxes, because I doubt this was what anyone hoped for when they bought an NFT.
But on the other hand, now that the bubble has burst, I also think that this could be the start of something new.
In the end, all I can say is:
BEWARE OF SCAMMERS IN CRYPTO!
It’s uncharted territory from here, so I’m sure there will be obstacles and eventually we’ll realize there are limits to what we can do. So, I want to apologize ahead of time if we end up with something half-baked.
All in all, don’t force yourself to buy anything. Just take it easy and have fun, ok?
To Be Continued.
