It is said that listening to ASMR audio for a long time will lead to an increase in the body’s threshold value (decrease in sensitivity), accompanied by the phenomenon of addiction. In the midnight webcast room, the screen replaces the window, and the squishy whispering, chewing, and sucking sounds of the girls are attached to the weak current of the headset——there is no need for “real” lust, and lust is everywhere on the network—in the brain. In the horror game “The Song of Saya”, the male protagonist Fuminori Sakisaka lost his hearing, sight, and taste due to a traffic accident. Not only did everyone become dirty pieces of flesh in his eyes, but the speeches he could hear turned into harsh and bubbling voices. Only the appearance of a mysterious girl Saya brought him out of the “real” hell, and only her voice could make him feel happy again. But one day he found that Saya is not a human being, not a “real” girl. In the world of Fuminori Sakisaka, human beings and aliens were turned upside down. The human bodies exuded rancidity, while Saya had a beautiful smile of simulacrum. “If it isn’t the world that collapsed, then it must be me that collapsed alone.” “Saya Addiction” tries to breed and reproduce Saya’s image and voice in various scenarios in the way ASMR generates lust. The result of addiction is immunity to reality. Once Saya appears, she will never disappear. “Are you willing to give up the world you originally didn’t care about for the only one of your kind in the world?”
