Yamagato Industries’ Failure to New York
September 20, 2018
By Quentin Frady

After weeks of constant power outages and poor crisis management, the citizens of the New York City Safe Zone are forced to look back on the events of August and September and wonder “where did we go wrong?” Yamagato Industries promised America a return to its pre-war state, but instead all they’ve delivered is a crumbling city surrounded by chain link fences, where children are forced to walk through wastewater puddles from ruptured sewer lines on the way to school. Where public transportation — when it’s available — is routed around the crumbling streets and run-down neighborhoods. Where emergencies go unreported because there is no phone service to call for help.

What has Yamagato Industries done for us? The answer may not shock you: Nothing.

The people of New York City have gone for five years without consistently available electricity, five years without stable running water in some of the worst-hit neighborhoods, five years without reliable phone and internet access. The people of New York City have endured the conditions of a Third World country in their own backyards, because Yamagato Industries is more interested in building up their own private playground than playgrounds for our children.

The latest stunt, developing Roosevelt Island while inland inhabited neighborhoods still suffer from lack of power and water, flies in the face of those who are suffering from the constant blackouts. The city is darker now than it was during the height of the war, during the darkest hours in American history, and we have Kimiko Nakamura to thank for it.

Need I remind readers that she is the daughter of the late Kaito Nakamura, a publicly outed member of the Company that threatened to control the United States with assassination, bribery, and literal mind control. Though Kaito Nakamura is gone, is his legacy the one we want shaping the future for our children and their children? We need only see the darkness out our own windows to know what Yamagato Industries has in store for us. While we sit in the dark, the neon lights of their private playground shine in defiance of our cries for help. What they’ve done to the people of New York is nothing short of criminal.

My heart bleeds for the New York of old, and the lost light we once had. A light that Yamagato Industries can’t seem to get its act together and deliver.

Now, what kind of future is that?

A dark one.
