I’m sorry! While I was producing my next video, I felt extremely dissatisfied with it, so I decided to revise it. I removed lame sections, added new sections, re-worded awkward portions of the script, re-recorded disappointing parts of the narration, and requested some new artwork. The narration now runs for 15:35 total, and, so far, I’ve produced 12:48 of the necessary material. This means that about 3 more hours of work are necessary in order to complete the video…but I’m exhausted, so I will have to resume working on the video tomorrow.
In the meantime, I want to share something else with you! First, a bit of backstory:
In the second half of 2014, I started creating an intro cutscene for Yandere Simulator. I produced four videos in total:
- Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-96P1WXQq0
- Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wxwu4UEgFAo
- Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAzg8HERD1U
- Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-o3VwKJkuY
Unfortunately, there was a very strong negative reaction to these videos. Many people complained that the protagonist didn’t seem like a yandere girl, and that Info-chan was playing too large of a role in the game’s story. People didn’t like the idea of the protagonist being coaxed into becoming yandere; they wanted a girl who was yandere right from the outset, without any influence from a secondary character.
A fifth video was planned, but was never made. This fifth video would have shown the protagonist’s obsessive, psychotic side, and would have made it clear that she was yandere way before Info-chan ever suggested the idea of murder. However, because of the negative reception that the first four videos received, I decided to just scrap that whole storyline and go with a completely different characterization for the protagonist.
Earlier this month, a team of people called “Sakura Media” launched the first episode of “Lovesick”, an animated series based on Yandere Simulator. The first episode is largely a re-creation of the original intro cutscenes that are linked above, but with better models, better animations, the addition of music, and different dialogue. Even though this storyline was abandoned three years ago, I think it’s sooooo cool to see those old videos from 2014 being re-created with much better production values!
I’m fairly certain that I’ll be able to finish and release my next video tomorrow. I hope that “Lovesick Episode One” keeps you entertained until then!
Thank you for your patience!

Yahy! Thank you so much for sharing my video! I cant wait to see what YanSim fans think of it!
It was really good! I wish he had gone with this plot. The surprise of finding out the character you’re playing as is actually freaking nutso at the end of the week sounds amazing.
i cant wait for next vid! Its so cool
I think yanchan should be called… Drum roll please…… TOAST GIRL THAT ONCE HAD NO EMOTIONS AND NOW HAS ALL THE FEELINGS!
WOW! That video was pretty good!
It is amazing, can’t wait for the next episode! Your voice and animation skills are a true talent!
The video was really good!And i look forward to watching more episodes of Lovesick!
You are very talented. Will definitely be subscribing to your channel.
Loved it ^^
More episodes would be incredible, but the issue I see is that no scenes have been created for the continuation… yet.
Still though, excellent work!
I wanna see more now!
It’s so good right? You know what! It will be AWESOME to make it as a anime cartoon series on TV!
Anyone agree with me???
I actually went back maybe a year or so ago and watched the introduction sequence you had originally planned. I wouldn’t have minded it if I knew that the fifth part would have shown she was really a yandere even before Info Chan tried to persuade her. It’s actually a really interesting plot if we got to see it to the end. I wish you wouldn’t have given up without sharing the entire story. Oh well. I’m fine with where it’s at now too. And the fan video was awesome!
Can’t wait to see the video you produce tomorrow.
I like YanSim’s initial concept much more than the actual. The designs; how Ayano was an adorable and realistic yandere instead of a edgy kuudere; and the story was like of one of those moe animes: cute, funny, but also had its serious moments. I don’t like how the game turned so serious and adult, I prefer when it was simple and fun
P.S. Ayano was already a yandere in those intros because she’s cute but have a sick sense of love. A yandere doesn’t need to be like those yanderes who are like weaboos. Info-chan just gave a push to Ayano take an action, Ayano felt better because there were someone by her side. If she wasn’t a yan, she wouldn’t hear Info-chan’s words.

“We will always forget you”
The voice and soundtracks remembers me a bit of Life is strange xD
That was fun to watch.
I’ve been a fan of the “Lovesick” game title since first mentioning of an alternate title, and hope that is what it remains come time for finalization. Keep up the great work, YanDev!!! *Two Thumbs WAAAAAYY Up*
BTW – Love the Cantarella outfit!! (^.^)
Oh! I guess I should give credit where credit’s due, after all. So…
“Nice work, Sakura!! If you need any male VO in any future installments, I’d be willing to audition.”
Heh, I remember watching those ages ago but not really knowing where the negative response was attacking – I guess it was in some comment section I’ve never read.
All the same, refreshing to see a reimagining of those old clips but those varicrose veins on the necks was kinda off-putting.
OMG I CANT WAIT FOR PART TWO!!!!
This video reignited my flames to launch a smear attack on Osana. Murder’s too quick, too easy for a girl like her…
I reminds me RWBY in some basic aspects as dabing of some characters like a Ayano.
That was great Yandere Dev! Can’t wait for part two! Thanks for showing us something that others had made for Yandere Simulator!
Also, keep doing what your doing! It’s amazing to see such a great game, and it’s still in development!
Lovesick is very accurate name for that video. Especially the “sick” part. The weird CG animation made me uncomfortable. But hey. They did facial animation better than Bioware could ever hope to achieve 😉
If you see all anime yanderes are not kuderes and whitout feelings. ( shion-higurashi- yuno-mirai nikki- …)
It´s a simple girl who love a boy and gets angry when another girl is near of her love.
I dont like the idea of “Yandere is a kawai girl and info chan can transform her in 1 hour from being a sweet girl to a murderess without feelings”, its illogical.
Remember, she is a monster, but the story need more sense.
I think that Yanderedev have a good history for us, but make a midpoint in the yandere character.
Old intro idea sucks indeed. I hoping that YanDev will create sm diffrent.
Yeah, glad you rewrote the intro to make Yandere-chan more of a psychopath. I’m looking forward to seeing cut-scenes where she’s portrayed as cold and calculating except when it comes to Senpai.
I get that the game is not Japanese, but I dunno. Seems weird for Yandere Chan to have that kind of voice.
It doesn’t really fit the idea that someone just influence another person in a couple of minutes to kill a bunch of persons because of their newspaper… It took a lot of things besides of that to get something like that, a bigger manipulation of someone… And with that, it’s even BETTER the actual idea of an empty girl that doens’t have any feeling until she see the colors for the first time.
Don’t misunderstand me, I liked the video, but… The story just doesn’t work. It’s bettter the game how it is right now.
I think that’s kind of the point. A normal person couldn’t be influenced to kill someone so easily. The fact that she considered and readily accepted is what proves she’s insane.
TDA models are shit
It’d be really awesome if this got turned into a REAL anime after the full game is released.
I really like this storyline, it makes it seem like she always had it in her then info-chan just sparked it off.
omg i hope this continues this was amazing
YandereDev, a sugestion: create a two-ways story, when the player choose if Ayano is a psycho or Ayano is be manipulated by Info-chan to murder’ them all
pleeeeaaaase, I do reeeeaaaly love the original route, and I believe this story has potencial
