“Checking the video on the go.”
We don’t know when it’ll be published or what exactly it will entail, but the Japanese name is actually quite catchy: it spells “ヒデチュー” which reads “HideChuu.” The “Chuu” part is written with the first three Katakana characters for “tube” (which is written “チューブ”), but it’s also the Japanese onomatopoeia for a kiss. Basically, it can be read as “Hideo’s Kiss.
Interestingly, Kojima Productions is also looking for volunteers to subtitle the series in English, as mentioned by Kojima-san’s assistant Ayako Terashima.

Of course, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more, but if you have good command of both Japanese and English, and a lot of time on your hands (subtitling is a very time consuming activity, more than many think), this might be your chance to contribute to Kojima-san’s return.
