Bonding Time – Let’s Play AI: The Somnium Files Blind Part 24 [Japanese VA PC Gameplay]


Oh, thank you Are you not gonna roll the credits,
I’d love to see that too (Welonz chuckles) Why don’t you, while we’re at it? (Welonz chuckles) Oh, my God. Are you serious? Oh, we gotta come back here Reopen or begin? What’s the difference? I’m not sure How do I get back to the game? (Welonz chuckles) I just wanna be back to where I was Reopen? Flashback. Oh, okay. Let’s begin Oh, this is resetting the whole thing. Okay. Let’s get back to Lemniscate, then Good lord Hey, I guess that means that Date does
manage to get a girlfriend. If we play it right Not again, not again (Welonz chuckles) Tch Hm… Gotta keep going Anything else around here? Why are there so many bugs
in that plant? (Welonz chuckles) (Welonz chuckles) It’s always different, too; it’s never the same What about the high stool? Thank you, Date. Thank you. You bet on horse racing? That was an entirely different thing again Door? (Welonz chuckles) You’re getting old, Date One of the artists in this place? It’s not a very common word, is it? Here we go (Welonz chuckles) I’m sure that’s what it was Well, let’s go then, Mizuki Not much else, uh–should we go try
to click on the other ones, anyway? Just to see if anything new pops up Yeah, that’s pretty much it. And then with this lady (Welonz chuckles) That’s it, okay, fine. Let’s go, then. Let’s go to– mm…Sunfish Pocket? Hm, they cleaned up already No clues here, but it’s not telling me to go to the map yet So there must be something here Maybe even as simple as talking to Mizuki That doesn’t mean you can’t feel bad about it Really? (Welonz chuckles) I wanna see the pictures, but they’re too far away I can’t see any of them Zoom in, zoom in, I can’t see; I wanna pick too! Awh Yeah, there’s really not too much else here Alright, let’s go then. Or–can we read a little bit? Okay (Welonz chuckles) Okay, I actually remember where this came up– it was when the receptionist was talking to Mizuki
a *long* time ago, not on this path, and I’m pretty sure it was in the Japanese voice acting, but not in the English translated subtitle so maybe that’s why there’s so many words
that we don’t remember seeing at all (Welonz chuckles) –Oh, my God! (Welonz chuckles) (Welonz chuckles) That’s scary, holy crap (Welonz exhales) My lord Hoh. Okay, we will stop here for now Let’s check out– the hospital. Visit Ota, visit Iris who might not be awake yet (Welonz chuckles) It’s kinda sad because of this route we never had that heart to heart talk (Welonz snickers) Well, we can be here for both, right? But that is actually kinda, hm. Mizuki never mentioned wanting to visit Ota Wait–is that, like, the porn star I liked? (Welonz chuckles) That name’s come up before, right? But I don’t remember in what context I don’t think that’s, like, a story relevant name Mm… That’s foreshadowing. (Welonz chuckles) Mizuki is a child, I don’t
think she even counts as a woman (Welonz chuckles) (Welonz chuckles) You always go overboard, Ota Somebody in the hospital making cranes for another person in the hospital Why don’t you focus on resting? Yeah, we should get going (Welonz chuckles) (Welonz laughs) He mumbled that he wanted us to stay for a little longer I didn’t actually ask him anything yet (Welonz chuckles) Khh That’s so gross (Welonz chuckles) Is it 18+? ‘Cause I wanna remind you, she’s 12 You better not be making her read any weird stuff (Welonz chuckles) A jumbo jet? (Welonz chuckles) Another pun Oh, my lord. ‘Cause Ota’s talkative, so
looking around at stuff gives us jokes But not everything, apparently Well, let’s get going then, Mizuki Never (Welonz chuckles) Yeah, I get the feeling that saving the
shrine for last might be a good thing here Let’s go to Marble Do you know anybody? You’re still polishing the bonito Mm… Uhh– (Welonz chuckles) Oh, my goodness Not in front of Mizuki, please (Welonz chuckles) Oh, okay In the Japanese, Date doesn’t wanna take a bath with Mama
because he’s afraid that all the water will spill out but if it’s a costume, then I guess that’s not an issue Y’know, especially for a Japanese game, I feel like there’s so many potential low-hanging fruit, distasteful jokes they could make with Mama but it feels like they consciously avoid them ’cause Date just now, could’ve said “Ew, I don’t wanna take a bath with
you, Mama” but he didn’t say that so I do appreciate that. (Welonz chuckles) Not yet (Welonz laughs) (Welonz chuckles) Hey Hey! Hey! (Welonz chuckles) She’s got too much blackmail material on me (Welonz chuckles) Yeah, those are some pretty
high praises–I don’t disagree A minority undergoing a common struggle
would give them certain characteristics that non-minorities wouldn’t have I feel like that’s not really an unreasonable thing to say A metal pipe She’s ready Is it illegal for her to be carrying a knife around? It’s a Swiss army knife, though, it’s not like,
a freaking vegetable cleaver (Welonz chuckles) I mean, that was kinda a clever pun How many 12 year olds do you know
who say “stool” instead of “poop”? I dunno (Welonz chuckles) Kapureeze (Caprese) is the salad, Kappuru uzee is “couples are really damn annoying” Especially for single people like Date (Welonz chuckles) That’s it Another sofa Trying to not be wasteful, that’s
why I’m not throwing it away Well, I guess that’s that. Time to go, Mama, thank you. (Welonz chuckles) Aw, she’s such an innocent little child but when you say things like that, like, “Oh,
you don’t need to know” then it’s like, you’re treating her like a child, and I don’t think she appreciates that Even though it’s not like I wanna explain to her what ‘in bed’ means (Welonz chuckles) Huh Last but not least, the shrine The same one where I was training her, right? Do you really want a kid saying that you’re “romantic” when you’re with her at a shrine?(Welonz chuckles) Oh, that’s true, though. That’s true, being frugal and cheap
are different, I agree with that Oh, my God (Welonz chokes/coughs) (Welonz chuckles) That’s why we haven’t been able to come back here: Because we’re banned (Welonz chuckles) Mm, let’s look around a little bit. (Welonz chuckles) (Welonz chuckles) She wakes up immediately Huh “Suzu” means “Bell” But you also could say it’s kinda like a name Ask her It’s really solemn and quiet here, and peaceful Hey, what about that? That’s different from what you said
last time, she’s gonna know! Oh! You can still do it, even if you don’t believe in it Aww, that’s so cute I’m surprised we never got a phone call about Mizuki breaking everyone’s
front teeth (Welonz chuckles) You’re such a wet blanket (Welonz chuckles) There’s really not many places for us to go There’s money inside Hm…I hope– for me, okay? If I made a wish here, I would hope that– Mizuki and I can become family, for real And you know, the whole thing about
solving the case and all but, that’ll happen in due time, hopefully Okay, well, let’s go then, Mizuki

    It was a grenade not a swiss army knife you sillies.

    Mizuki had a GRENADE in her backpack which is officiously illegal, but she was going so fast that you won't catch it.

    They say psychologically speaking doorways trigger our mind to thinking we entered a new area, and is why its easy to forget stuff going room to room to room in your house. Arches must be similar psychologically. And Kami are as diverse as the associations a person can make. In dreams the same part of the brain is active for the one that creates new context when going through doorways, which is why they say if you want to lucid dream doorways are the place to do a 'reality check'. I think its a special system going on for Shinto. Idk enough about it though.

    It's not actually just the grenade if you read the Appendix entry for the swiss army knife. the swiss army knife is not really a joke.

    I love Mizuki's route so goddamn much… She is by far the best character in the game for me and that's saying a lot since this game has a lot of great characters. 🙂

    So not gonna lie here. The whole reason I picked up this game in the first place was because I saw Mizuki's little speech about the LGBT Community and I loved it so much that I had to get this game and at least check it out. Now one of my favorite games ever. Thank you Mizuki you sweetheart.

    That LBGT dialogue is a sweet thing. Even if Mama might not be the most progressive stereotype. It at least SEEMS that they're kind of aware what makes the LBGT community good.

    Mizuki and Date's dynamic is just almost as good as Date and Aiba's.

    Actually I don't think there's a bad dynamic between Date and other characters. He just has so much personality.

    The observation about the LGBT community is definitely reasonable. Every community is made up of individuals both good and bad people. But facing a common struggle that most other people don't experience does give them a unique perspective and they might be more likely to feel a certain way about things and to be tuned to the needs of people who might have similar experiences. I just wish people would less often compare the struggles of different groups with each other as though it's a competition, and more often just use their experiences to empathize with others.

    Being gay myself, this game was a breath of fresh air when it comes to LGBT representation. They avoid distasteful jokes and while Mizuki's little speech on it was a clear dev message it's really nice to see such a viewpoint coming from a Japanese game. I was afraid of the usual stereotypes when I saw mama for the first time, but she's being treated like every other character, which is the type of representation me and many of my friends wanted to see.

    Seems that Mizuki has some sort of faith. I wonder if she was brought up that way, or, more likely, she was drawn to faith just as yet another way to feel like someone was listening to her…
    And be careful what you wish for Welonz – while wishing for Date and Mizuki to become family for real is a very wholesome wish, you could consider the horrid Green route as a very, ah, direct way of fulfilling that wish – by removing anyone else who could possibly compete for that family spot.

    Midookie, what an insufferably awfully written child character. They simply made her too abrasive and not charming enough. Plus her super strength schtick is too weak of a character traits when you couple it with her foregone personality. This entire route with her needed to end sooner than later.

    I was wondering why Ota would visit a net cafe despite having a laptop until i saw those files that describe all the other stuff they have apart from internet.
    11:00 Ota still doesn't know Mizuki lives with Date so he must be a bit confused as to why they're both here. I wonder who he thinks Mizuki lives with now both her parents are dead :I
    12:00 Good guy Ota asks someone else how they're doing, he can be considerate of others when he wants to be :U
    "Ota gets annoying around women" they say, implying he's not always annoying :Y
    14:30 wears ota cosplay in public to doubly annoy Date
    16:50 I doubt Ota's lite novels are as dirty as he suggests they are, since Mizuki doesn't get Mama's sex jokes. If she was reading something as perverted as AI the Somnium files she'd be sure to get them. We know ota exaggerates stuff from his somnium, he probably exaggerates how much of a perv he is. It's probably just full of women cleaning jumbo jets >_<
    22:00 mizuki has blackmail material on us, like we blackmailed ota and iris blackmailed us. everyone is blackmailing in this game 😛

    If the painting is not going to be named funyarinpa at any point in the game I'm going to be mad.

    22:48 LOL and the game was review bombed because it sounds like the virtue signaling going on in the west. I hate politics ruining games, comics and movies but this isn't it.

    Mizuki:
    * Super smart, super strong, super quick.
    * An orphan, had her parents die when she was little.
    * Inherited a wealthy company from her parents.
    * Crazy prepared, always has an insane amount of tools on her.
    * Wants to fight crime.

    Mizuki is Batman, confirmed.

    I'm not sure if I mentioned it but that picture on the wall in Marble is the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. It might have been something you missed early on so the text box just calls it a picture, but it's mentioned that Renju gave the picture to Mama. Saint Sebastian was a Christian martyred by a Roman emperor and his picture was eventually co-opted by the LGBT community since it's a half-naked man being martyred and certain portrayals have Saint Sebastian making a kind of erotic face, and it's come to represent the feeling of living in an oppressive society and having perseverance.

    Mizuki looks more and more like an RPG character I would play and I'm not sure what to think about it lol. That grenade!

    I think Date wants to be called romantic not in the sense of "romantic mood with candles and rose petals", but more as in romanticism is understood in literary terms – introspective, exploring the dark and mysterious spaces and ideas, and critical of the past, unafraid to see the ugliness and call it like it is.
    This might be relevant to the theme of Date and his past, to be honest.

    23:30 funny enough, isn't it the same trait that can be applied to gamers? To weebs? A lot of groups bond and are kept by being ostracized by majority.
