In the orange sunshine of mid March, I was riding the bicycle to the near game shop.
I just finished my term-end examination. I didn’t sleep for almost 2 weeks, but I was 14 years old, still young.
TV game was still out god. Internet still didn’t take over the world.

Game wasn’t cheap for a 14 years old boy. We could buy it only in special occasions.
I rushed home and started the game.

In a dark spaceship, shooting invisible enemies by detecting the location only with the sound of radar. The main character wakes up in a spaceship without any memory. She doesn’t even remember who she is. The spaceship was full of invisible aliens and you are to try to escape from the ship with a few of her friends.

The game is named Enemy Zero. It still has strong fan base for the unique system and sophisticated design.

On 2/20/2013, the creator, Iino Kenji suddenly passed away for cardiac insufficiency. He was still 42 years old.

Fukushima Diary can’t cover all the deaths and health problems of famous people, but a lot of them are dying of cardiac insufficiency or cardiac infarct, and having leukemia. Cesium is known to accumulate in muscles (heart) to cause heart problem from the study of Chernobyl.
His death was especially shocking because he was still young and fine until a few days ago.

People we know of are dying one after one. This is the reality of dream technology.
I see the fire spreading rapidly. It’s burning my world to ashes. Whatever I remember, the memory would end being burnt.

Now we detect radiation by the sound of geiger counter, but this is not a game. We can never fight our enemy.
Just after 311, he wrote an article on his blog. It was a message for his son about nuclear power.
In this post, he clearly commented he was against nuclear power.
As a reason, he wrote we should not leave anything to potentially damage the DNA of our descendant. We do not have the right to damage it by any means. It’s selfish of us to think only about our own generation.

Riding his bicycle, the 14 years old boy arrived at the other side of the world 15 years later. and he knows the creator of the game died after a nuclear accident.
