SeaBed


  • Language: English

SeaBed is a yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko's friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko's former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.

All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.

I saw a ghost in the living room.
But as I was already used to the phenomenon, I did not let it interfere with the preparation of my evening meal.
The ghost ate my fried egg and commended its taste.
As I listened to her talk, my memories drifted back to the days we were still together.
Back when we were in school, she asked me what was necessary for the two of us to be together.
A small workplace that we could make a living from without relying on anyone.
A silent apartment where we would have the freedom to do what our hearts desired.
I told her that.

In the late eighties – during the economic boom – the small design company we founded was doing surprisingly well.
We visited all the places we talked about when we were in school – the southern islands, the old European cities, the West Coast. We went wherever we wanted, seeing whatever we sought.
Alone in that spacious living room, I attempted to figure out why it all ended this way. Why those days when nothing could stand in our way faded into the past.
I no longer felt like I could do everything.
The world had grown complicated. Even simple matters became difficult.
The rules we had established in the past no longer seemed to apply, and the castle we built for ourselves crumbled to dust.
"What is necessary for us to be together?" – the ghost asked me.
We need a make a new place for ourselves.
A place no one can destroy.
Let's make it a place that no one else can reach.
And so, I inconspicuously proceeded with the plan.
In a place so deep below the surface that no one else can find it.

    • As if to match the guitar I play in the afternoon music classroom.
      As if to match the piano someone plays in the next room.
      The pure singing voice from the rooftop connects the three disconnected melodies.
       
      It all started in such a day in late autumn.
      At that time, someone fell in love.
       
      Everyone was doing their best. Everyone pushed on. Everyone was intent and honest…
      We formed a bond and obtained a precious moment.
      That’s why someone fell in love. A love that was too late, a love that shouldn’t have occurred.
       
      And then comes winter. The falling snow covers all sins.
      And spring eventually comes, melting the snow and imposing all punishments.
       
       
       
      The cold breeze chilled me to the bone, a singing voice reached my ear-
       
      That frozen song from 3 years ago,
      It once echoed in the classroom, in the empty cafeteria, in the silent campus.
      Born from passion, evolved by love yet ultimately, vanished as a "lying song".
       
      The winter where they were "three" was no longer. A new winter started as "one and one"
       
      The season is late autumn.
      A foreboding change is approaching although the scar of the severed bond is yet to heal.
      2 lonely melodies attracted each other and hurt each other, summoning new one in the process.
       
      The new winter will arrive soon.
      The winter without her.
       
      There will be no more white album, because I won't sing again.
      There will be no more unreachable love, because I won't love again.
