hitori kakurenbo

7 posts in this topic

 

It's one of those things like Kokkuri san .Unless you grew up there ,its not something you would know about,or quite get the nuances about . It's their version of Bloody Mary .

It also ended up as a 2ch phenom ,which makes it a mass event with a certain age or type of people .

Like Kokkuri san,there's a horror movie about it too .

I found a few pages referencing it though .

Check out kokkuri san too. It's their version of a Ouija board ,and has more creepy overtones . Usually played by girls .

I didn't check any Japanese sites directly . I can ,but you probably won't be able to read any of it .

Do you know what 2ch is ?,

It's this hhhuuggggeee BBS ,with subforums of every conceivable type ,and people from all over the country chatter .

It's where things like suicide clubs and suicide pacts are made.

There are boards for guys in band,famous one,who want to hook up with their fans.

Then boards where the girls disuss the guys ....ummm,atributes .

It's ......an experience. Also ,they speak in code . Seriously . Code words change periodically ,and they use the number code language too .

So if its on there ,its weird for sure .

Oh I did not know what that was. That sounds ridiculous. You can link Japanese sites if you wish, but I definitely cannot read Japanese. I have a friend who can and I can employ her services, but if there are pics or video that will be awesome. Chrome also auto translates websites, which it won't be perfect, but I could get the gist of most of it.

Well if its about personal experiences about it,they might be blogs like mixi and amblo .

I will look when I get a chance .

Thanks for all of your support on this topic! I guess not many others feel an interest in this topic, but I thought it was so fascinating to see a 'bloody mary' style game, but way more in depth, starting from a totally different culture. I'm really tempted to try this, because most people haven't reported any residual effects, or really horrifying things happening during the 'game.' I find myself with free time now, so I'm going to finally check out kokkuri san now!
