Interview: Dream World (August 2018)

Interview: Dream World
This month our interview features the cricle Dream World who created "M for Manipulation - Scarlet Witches "Rose""!! We hope you enjoy the read!

Thank you so much for this interview! To start things off, could you please introduce yourself to the DLsite.com users?

Hello, I am the owner who created this circle, 夢想界 (Dream World). I'm very glad to receive such an offer. Although I will not be able to answer all the questions, but I tried my best, so please be generous about it.

How did you come up with your Circle's name "Dream World"?

As a doujin voice listener, I always dreamed of scripts and scenarios that I really would have liked. My works are actualization of my imagination and ideas, so I am presenting those to you through my little space of daydream, "Dream World".

You are a voice product creator. What led to becoming a professional voice product creator? Was there something that specifically triggered your desire to begin creating voice products?

As I mentioned, I had been listening to doujin voice for a long time. I found this genre while looking through my favorite voice actors and actresses. After a while, I simply thought about making a work of my own, and boom, there it was. Although I am writing script for the first time of my life, but as I liked creative writing, it was not much of a challenge.

Have you ever purchased any products from DLsite.com? If so, who is your favorite artist/creator and what are your favorite products?

I have bought so many works from DLsite that I cannot even dare to count it. My favorite CVs, although I will not be able to mention them all as it will fill this page, are Kohinata Sakura, Satou Shio, Asami Yui, Nogami Natsuki, Akatsuki Kotone, Sawano Poplar, Asagi Shiki. For my favorite work, I would say RE130598 A Tale of Reverse Cuckoldry -Wicked Junior Girls-, although it is very hard to decide.

"M for Manipulation - Scarlet Witches "Rose"" is a big hit in DLsite.com Japanese; many users are enjoying this. For those who have not yet experienced this product, please tell us about what they can expect on this voice product?

Before introducing the work, I would like to thank all the voice listeners and people who helped and loved my works. It was my first R-18 voice works, and there were lots of shortcomings with it, and I was surprised with people's love and interest in my work. It was probably because of the amazing cover art from ReBe11, and breathe taking acting from Satou Shio. I will keep trying to improve my works, so that I can respond to people's expectations someday.
As you can infer from the title, the work is for men who are the one on the M side. However, it does not go to its extremes but rather plays it soft. It is only being led by a woman, while a man, in this case you, respond to that. As it does not contain any violence or pain, I believe that those who are not on this side can also enjoy it without much difficulty.
I believe conclusion is also not that much of a haze, so you will not be getting any bitterness after listening to this. Personally, I categorize the work as a lovey-dovey decorated with some femdom aspects, but it depends on the person. I will try to improve on the shortcomings of the work and settings, so I can publish better work next time.

Do you have any plan to release the English version of this product?

As for now, I do not have such plan. It is hard to find a CV with the voice and acting that I am desiring for my works. However, should I come across such an opportunity, I am pretty sure I can make a try.

Please tell us the reason on taking Ms. Shio Satou for the role of the main character "Rose"?

Most importantly, she had a perfect voice to represent and enhance the character, "Rose". When I heard the sample track from her, I did not need to have a second thought, and proceeded to requesting participation from her. Although her voice may sound cold-hearted and sharp, it nests warm compassion behind it: a perfect representation for Rose's characteristics.

What aspects do you consider when to choose a voice actor?

After choosing the scenario, I make a pool of CVs that would match the situations and environment. Then, after writing scripts, when all the words and conversations has been confirmed, there are only few CVs to choose from.

If any, please tell us your favorite voice product and voice actor?

My favorite Circles are カモネギちゃんねる (kamonegi channel), 甘辛ギネコクラシー (Amakara Gynecocracy), 地獄のエルドラド (hell dorado), and others that I will not mention. These circles make quality works that contains light femdom scenarios, so I have been enjoying them for quite a while. For favorite CVs, please refer to question 4.

Have you read the reviews? Many of the users have highly praised your product.

From the first day of publishing, I checked it every day, every week until last month. I cannot thank people who have bought my works enough, as it not only made me feel better, but also gave me courage to make sequels for my works. Again, much thanks to listeners who supported my works.

From where do you draw your greatest inspiration to create this product?

While randomly daydreaming, you come across some imaginations that are not probable, but fantastic. I memo a few of them, then later combine them to evaluate each and every one of them. "Female executives" was one of the most attractive genres with succubus. I thought there were not many Circles which were working on this genre, so I gave it a try.

You are a foreign Circle resides out of Japan. We believe that voice products is a niche genre in your country. What do you think about the possibility on this genre?

Acting and voice from the CVs are vital for not only doujin voice but also for games, animations, and many other genres. It is what actually makes a character in my opinion. Although this genre is still a minor in many countries, I expect that it will only continue its growth in near future.

What kinds of impressions do people in your country have of Japanese pop-culture?

People here think that Japanese games from Nintendo and PlayStations are very attractive part of Japanese culture.

What is the most important consideration when you are developing your products? What element is the most important to you?

I evaluate whether the work is satisfactory for myself, and if it will be an embarrassment if I publish it to random listeners. I, as a voice listener, do not like works that have been created overnight, without much consideration and revisions.

How do you enjoy spending your time when you are not working? Do you have any hobbies or special interests?

I obviously listen to voice works and also read books, play games, and take a walk. Nothing so special. However, I recently found about Virtual Youtubers, and it interests me quite a lot.

So many users are enjoying your product. Your fans are curious what you have in the works for your next project. Can you provide a preview of what you are working on now for future release? Also, please let us know your goals for your future.?

Sequel for past works are in progress. I want to make both R-18 and SFW works, so it will be hard to comply to all expectations, but I will try my best. If there are people who want to know what is going on in the Circle regarding voice works, you can check out our website, https://musoukai30.wixsite.com/musoukai. My goal would be making a 1000DL work before this year concludes. It would be my pleasure for my works to reach your expectations.

You have been so very successful in this field. Do you have any advice for new developers to help inspire them?

I do not think I am at a place to give people advice. However, I am very proud of my voice works and successes it had. If I stayed to be just a consumer, this would have not happened in the first place. If you are hesitating, I recommend jumping in first.

Any message for your fans?

I will not be able to thank you enough by just writing some words down here. It was my honor for the works to be heard by you and be loved by you. I will keep striving myself in order to fulfill your expectations and come up with better ideas and works.
I hope you all reading this to have a great day and year ahead of you, and please continue your interest in my works. Thank you :D
