I got eye drops.I am not good with eye drops. I still can’t get them in my eyes properly by myself. I don’t mean to be blind, but they don’t go in my eyes anyway. I get hit around the eyes.So I always hit it a lot and manage to hit it. It’s a very lazy way of doing it. These eye drops are from Street Fighter 2. It seems to make me better at the game. There is also a SF2 picture on the box.
I recently recorded guitar and ukulele.The client came from Tokyo and we recorded in Okinawa for the first time in a while. Due to the effects of the new coronavirus, I have had fewer opportunities to be present at recordings. However, now Japan is back to normal.I am glad that I will have more opportunities to be present at recordings from now on. I will announce more details when this song is released.
Over the past 10 years or so, I am happy to say that my music is now reaching people outside of Japan.It is thanks to STEAM and YOUTUBE. I would like to make music for games in countries other than Japan. So far, I have made BGM for Skullgirls in the US and sound effects for Indivisible, but it would be interesting to make music for genres other than action games.
These days, I use Airpod max to check my music on my mobile. The noise cancellation feature is very good and allows me to concentrate on my work. With macbook and airpod max, I will be able to do serious music production on mobile. To do this, I need to get used to using a DAW with the screen size of a laptop PC. This is difficult, but once you get over it, you will be able to make music anywhere.
I taught game sound at a vocational school for five years.However, I couldn’t feel the passion of the students and decided to quit teaching. Vocational schools in Japan are not places to learn expertise, but places where young people who don’t want to go out into the world go reluctantly. Nevertheless, I thought I could be useful by conveying the fun of game creation. However, I did not find it rewarding. If you really like games and want to make them, you don’t need to go to school to start making them yourself. It doesn’t mean that if you go to school you will be able to make games.

I bought KOF15 from SNK.SNK went bankrupt at one time, but I’m glad they are back now and have released new Samurai Spirits and KOF games. I especially like the music, with its unique SNK guitar sound. Also, in Samurai Spirits, they used the environmental sounds well in the game, which was awesome. However, I am not a fan of SNK’s games. I will take my time to practice and enjoy the music. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1498570/THE_KING_OF_FIGHTERS_XV/
Recently, I have been reading news articles about video games while studying English with an English learning application on my smartphone. Video game terminology is not found in language learning apps or textbooks, so I want to learn those words as well. In Japan, there are many technical terms for fighting games. How do you express that in English? I’m also interested in game terminology that is unique to other countries and not found in Japan. Now that I have an excellent translation tool called DEEPL, I would like to use it and enjoy learning English.
I’m working on this site now.I will be writing about my music work, equipment, etc.
