Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei

Next >>> Ch0 Hello World


The first part of Fisheye Placebo is finally out! :D Thank you all for being so patient while I worked on the research and preparations. The next part will be coming out soon in a week! (If the image is not loading for whatever reason, try this )

Here are some of the inspirations for this intro…

Fisheye Placebo

:bulletblue:Original webcomic by Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)
:bulletblue:Genre: Cyberpunk, Cypherpunk, Fiction, Psychological


Living under an authoritarian regime is not fun. Extensive censorship meant no Facebook, no Youtube, and no porn.

Fortunately for Vance, being a hacker makes scaling the Great Firewall a walk in the park. With the free web at his fingertips, Vance should be happy but he’s not. Maybe there’s something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.

Maybe it’s a girlfriend.

So it’s not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? That’s just taking fate into your own hands, or something along those lines, right?

Too bad fate had other plans in mind and Vance is dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate.

College is meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and maybe not quite failed hacks, Vance will slowly come to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.

Is this what democracy looks like?

Very surpassing opinions connected with art. Unique work" For an inspirational artist like `yuumei, we can definitely see how she makes epic milestones in her artworks all the time

It seems like Frey killed someone > possibly it was the police guard that was beating him up - hence his friend at the beginning running away and asking Frey over and over again whether this is revolution - as obviously he never meant anyone to be hurt or killed...

that better not be jen getting shot there in the beginning because she is a cool concept

I cant tell who the bad guy is in this story... Mostly because of this clip... But i suppose that is the point?
xSenkai Featured By Owner May 26, 2015
oooh I've been waiting so long for this to come out :) I'm angry at myself for having missed this for two years. But OMG you used the Rise-Night Version X3 so happy. That's one of my fav pictures by you, besides the alt version :) Will definitely enjoy this series. The art is so amazing, and the feels, it's like an overdose cause it's true.  I love how your art always seems to have that in it X3

Aaaaaahhhh~  This is so cool! I love the effect of the static and fade into the warning sign. It's so cool, like a move effect but in vertical panels. That's so smart and breaks the fourth wall, allowing the readers to feel censored by whatever government is in the AU.

They will be called terrorist so the means justify the actions.
"Terrorist" gives those in power justification to murder anyone they see as a threat or don't abide by their rules.

Mark my words. The day will come when lonely families who are trying to live off the land will be gunned down in their own home and broadcast on the 7 o'clock news as being a splinter cell for some alleged terrorist organization.
We are nothing but consumers to the corporations and sheeple to the Governing bodies.

Oh well, the law passed.
Thank to our deputees, it's always nice to not use your brain when you get some arangments, right ?

Well people, big news, soon you'll just have to lurk at France to see what Fished Placebo was made for.

So Frey will die huh ? I'm pretty upset. ><
Because, in a way, it would be an undestandable end for him, a good way to mark the spirits, to change Vence for good. And it would also mean he stayed true to what cared for him, until the very end. (unlike Vence, who escaped, and will probably regret A LOT of things afterward.)
BUT, but, but. ...I'm not happy. >=[     Frey is so damn cool, why is it always the best that have to leave first ! >< No ! Just no ! You can't leave us with that useless Vence ! Please ! But I guess it would be logical. =\
Aaaaahhhhh. Anyways, I don't know, I'm upset. ><
Volliare Featured By Owner Edited Apr 19, 2015  Student General Artist
That's actually not Frey judging by the shape. It's Jen, aka the female cyberpunk graffiti artist that appears in recent chapters (you can tell it's her because the hoody has cat ears on it). I think this is much later on in the story where Vance realizes just how bloody government upheavals can be and he laments (the text is blurred out but you can still make it out) that ''Is this really what me and Frey wanted?''
ChimamireNoShimo Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015
That looks like Vance... Is he going to die?
