This website provides a fan translation of the Playstation 2 game Akai Ito.


Akai Ito Game Information




We have begun adding to the glossary, that great volume of blue-highlighted words you are oft to see when playing the game. We definitely hope to add more when time allows, but the translation itself will come first, of course.

Be sure to note that the glossary entries will be translated directly from the game. Most of this information is very obscure, obviously, because it's a glossary of Japanese (and foreign) culture information that Japanese people aren't expected to automatically know. Some of them are very strange and hard to make sense of (those involving passages from old books especially, because of archaic grammar structures I haven't mastered yet.), but I will add links to relevant information where possible, or jot down a note or two that might make sense, if I can.
