Fisheye Placebo

is a webcomic by yuumei, coming in early 2013. It is read in long comic strips It is about information wars, hackers, and bad roommates. Although Fisheye Placebo will be more about cyber warfare, war time mentality can still apply and can cause extreme psychology damage to those involved.Although the fish symbol in the title is often used to stand for Jesus in Christianity, but before Christians adopted that symbol, it simply meant fish. So please do not associate any religious meaning behind this work.

The technical term for "Fisheye" refers to a type of lens used in photography to produce a wide angle view that also results in a rounded distortion of the image that gives of the same result as a 5 point perspective drawing. "Placebo" refers to the medical term of a fake medicine that's used to trick the patient into thinking they are getting better, and the psychological effects of that false belief might actually make the patient heal. Hence the quote, "Through the distorted lens I found a cure."


He is roommates with Frey.

He is roommates with Vance. He enjoys playing the electric violin. It's plugged into his headphones and silent to the rest of the world. He does when he needs to plan out the next strategy to fight against a totalitarian regime.

She is a photojournalism major. She has a rather stoic personality since being a photojournalist means she sees a lot of the dark side of humanity.

Jen is an art major. She enjoys drawing graffiti at the college surveillance sites. She is roommates with Cocao, another art major. They met Vance when he took a figure drawing class to see naked women.

Cocao is an art major. She is roommates with Jen, another art major. They met Vance when he took a figure drawing class to see naked women.

She is Vance's little sister. She enjoys trolling others and hacking for porn and yaoi; it is said that she knows just as much as rated R material as Vance even though she is still 3 years younger than him. Vance always goes to her to rant about Frey whenever he does something particularly disturbing.



The story takes place in a fictional 3rd world- a 2nd world country that's wedged between Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Mongolia, and India.

Vance and Frey stay in a jail-like dorm room.

Sounds REALLY interesting.
I'm worried I'm gonna forget about this by the time this comic starts.

[Interestingly enough, I live in a country which is wedged between India and Pakistan :)]

My best wishes with your webcomic :)
