Default al|together 2008 Day 1: From the Bottom of the Heart

Leading off the al|together 2008 festival is "From the Bottom of the Heart", from the circle Persian Blue (original title "願えばきっと…"). It's a short piece, and quite ably translated by Chris St. Louis.

Downloads are available for both Windows and Mac, so enjoy! Note that the accompanying essays on the site can contain spoilers, so you may want to play it through before reading them.

I wish the (Japanese) group had gotten around to putting out more...

It was good, it's a taste of what's to come. I'm sure there's going to be something bigger to look forward to!

And I thought I wouldn't recognize anything! I loved this piece when I first read it. Chris St. Louis already made the grab, though. Ah, well.

It wasn't what I would call an outstanding piece of literature. It wasn't especially thought-provoking and it failed to deliver any emotional impact to me, thanks to its brevity and rather schematic character development (so I wouldn't call it terribly moving either). But, speaking about what it was instead of what it wasn't, it was a good read. It was fun.

Thank you!
