It's ok to tweak things a bit for your story. The main reason why you probably shouldn't do Japan is simply because you probably don't know a whole lot of their culture- however there IS nothing stopping you from drawing your influence from there. Unless you plan to explore "otherworld Japan" specifically, I recommend just making it a fantasy world of your own creation that simply happen to have Japanese mythological references- however, also tweak and add your own material accordingly.Agixt Roe wrote:Considering this is a forest in Japan and I was interested in it from a documentary I watched, yeah. Just stood out to me. Anyway, I have been researching and I've read a few blogs/ seen some vlogs about people's visits in Aokighara. I've also been trying to search up different types of Japanese spirits/yokai to use and get ideas from.
You have full control to do what you want with the subplots, there is nothing wrong with it. Same for "running around fighting demons", you just have to work harder to make it stand out since it's a fairly common setup/conflict.Agixt Roe wrote:Yeah, I know. What I was basing it off of was the 'In ;another world' running around fighting demons part". There's probably going very little romance(if at all) between the two obvious characters ><

That's going to be one of her struggles; learning how to really project and use her powers. As for the "Seeing dead" bit, it's a mixture of yokai and spirits in the forest. People who live around the area and outside of it believe that it's filled with both, also it's probably the only part of her power that she really has open to her at the time. ( Edited my post.. this all still a w.i.p)
For the first bit a lot of reliance is going to Gorenji for offence, till she can figure things out.
