Ah, whom can we ever turn to in our need?
Not angels, not humans, and already the knowing animals are aware
that we are not really at home in our interpreted world.

- Rainer Maria Rilke, "The First Duino Elegy"

For news and downloads regarding Narcissu Side 2nd, please go HERE (external link; insani is not and has never been involved in the Narcissu Side 2nd translation effort).

Welcome to our support site for the 2005 doujin visual novel by stage-nana, Narcissu. We encourage you to look around; find out a little bit more about the story of this piece; see what life is like through the eyes of the characters; trace their footsteps through this world of eyes tightly closed; explore the medical conditions that have shaped their lives.

Once you have decided that you wish to explore this piece for yourself, go ahead and download it without any guilt -- it's the complete work, it's been fully English-localized as a joint project between insani and Hæleþes áwendende, and best of all, it's free. And once you've decided you've had enough of this site, why not check out some of the links to different worlds?

This localization has been completed and is being distributed with the full knowledge and sanction of stage-nana. We would like to thank Mr. Tomo Kataoka for graciously granting us permission to distribute our translation, and for all the help he has afforded us in the localization process itself.
