My Room is Haunted by Women

Summary: On the 28th of May, 2005, a thread named “My Room is Haunted by Women” was started on the 2channel Occult board. This was the beginning of an immensely popular story.

My Room is Haunted By Women: Part 1

May 28th

My room is currently haunted by women.
When I say haunted, I mean by ghosts.
I could see them since I was a child, but in this room in the city I am staying in right now, there are only female ghosts…
There’s at least one at any given time. Sometimes, there are even five of them.
I think it’s strange that there are only female ghosts, is there anyone who had a similar experience?
Also, this is not my imagination.

Try chanting “Mani, Handoma, Peiroshanou Onharitaya Un”

38 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/28(土) 23:49:48 ID:RoncJWgx0

It’s a mantra.


39 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/28(土) 23:50:04 ID:E9b4RGOU0

Is this a scary story?
Can you talk to them? If you can’t, then I guess it’s a little creepy…
Also, do you change in your room?
If they start to look at you, then maybe you can communicate with them.
But I have no idea if that’s a good thing.
And if they do stare at you, and if you still can’t talk to them, it’ll just make it scarier.


44 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/28(土) 23:55:31 ID:4mxcxrS90

I can’t talk to them… I tried a moment ago, but there was no response.
I normally change in my room.
I’ve been seeing them since I was a kid, so I’m sort of used to it(?)
Anyway, they seem to be able to see my things, but they don’t seem to be able to see me.
It’s not that scary… but I do find it difficult to relax when they’re around.


49 名前:38 :2005/05/28(土) 23:59:43 ID:RoncJWgx0

Ah crap, I wrote the wrong mantra.
That one meant “Let there be light in my life”.

How do you fap?

73 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 00:17:29 ID:AViM5Ryn0

So they can see you when you fap?
1-san, this point is very important.

82 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 00:21:01 ID:2clicQyn0

When you see them, do it on their faces!
Even if it’s a grandma!
If you aren’t going to do it, I’m going to sleep!

83 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 00:22:04 ID:AViM5Ryn0

Where did 1-san go?
When you see them, can you try to reach out and touch them?
If you can, then don’t do this:

_, ,_
( ゜д゜)Opps!!


But this.
_  ∩
( ゚∀゚)彡 Boobs! *gropes*


86 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. 投稿日:2005/05/29(日) 00:24:33 pDLAdOqH0

 I do it normally all the time lol.
I don’t think they are looking at me when I do, but they are just there.
Go to sleep then lol.
Oh, I see…
I’ve never tried to touch them.
I’ll go try now.



94 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. 投稿日:2005/05/29(日) 00:29:16 pDLAdOqH0

Shit, that was scary…

95 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し 投稿日:2005/05/29(日) 00:29:40 W+SliO/50

What happened

96 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し 投稿日:2005/05/29(日) 00:29:45 AViM5Ryn0

What happened!?!?

102 名前:38 :2005/05/29(日) 00:33:14 ID:BgCEutLv0

The mantra worked.

104 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 00:33:53 ID:AViM5Ryn0

That took forever! lol
And wasn’t it the wrong mantra? rofl


106 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 00:34:42 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I was waiting in the middle of my room, when this 80s lady appeared.
So I reached out, and managed to touch her, I think…?
And then she looked at me, and disappeared.
I thought that it might be a bad sign, and I was right.
Since then, I can hear someone saying “Hey, hey…” from behind me in a quiet voice…
It’s quite scary.

110 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 00:35:33 ID:5Qw5QF8b0

First, get naked.
(  : )
( ゜∀゜)ノ彡

Then roll up your eyes, and slap your butt with both your hands.

Σ                           て
Σ  It’s surprisingly Utopia!        て人__人_
Σ         It’s surprisingly Utopia!      て

\|∫\   _,. – 、_,. – 、 \ (  ヘ)
\   \______ _\<     \  || ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ |       \||_______ |

If you keep this up for 10 minutes, you will feel exhausted and the spirit will leave.


137 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 00:43:18 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Since I can’t think of anything else, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping… I’ll do the Utopia!? Okay!?

164 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 00:54:19 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Ah, but if I turn around, it’s like acknowledging her presence…
Okay! I’m going to do the Utopia!



183 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 01:02:44 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Yes! I’ve won!

201 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 01:10:20 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I was scared, so I got naked while sitting down.
When I stood up, I rolled my eyes back and slapped my butt and yelled “It’s surprisingly Utopia!” non-stop.

The voice stopped, so I looked behind
And the 80s lady had a shocked expression, and disappeared again.
This may sound strange, but she was cute sitting curled-up in the corner.

There’s probably no one around right now.

210 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 01:12:12 ID:CeZOD4HXO


If you really did it, then you are a god.

211 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 01:12:33 ID:5Qw5QF8b0

But if she’s cute, then its a waste chasing her away.

212 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 01:12:36 ID:AViM5Ryn0

1 san! Good job with the Utopia!

213 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 01:12:57 ID:dJUjJER5O

I love you, 1.

214 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 01:12:58 ID:pYL5wP8C0

This is the birth of a legend.



406 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 11:00:47 ID:pDLAdOqH0

 She’s wearing a fitting one-piece dress (A bodycon?)
It’s rather flashy.

466 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 14:53:18 ID:pDLAdOqH0

>One knock for “Yes”, and two for “No”?
I’ve heard about that!
I see, I’ll try that if she appears again.



480 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:40:57 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Ah, she’s here.

485 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:49:06 ID:pDLAdOqH0

It’s the 80s lady.
She’s still saying that ‘Hey, hey…” thing.

487 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 15:50:39 ID:TMMKcMyF0

Alright! Now time to initiate the plan!
Write a message on paper or do the one knock for yes thing!!!1!!!

490 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 15:51:31 ID:8S8AfEXL0

P, paper! Write something for her!


492 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:53:14 ID:pDLAdOqH0

There’s no scrap paper where I am now.
I’ll go with the “One knock for yes”plan.


493 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:55:02 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I tried asking “Can you knock once for yes, and twice for no?”.
No reaction…

496 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:57:01 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Eh, wait, hang on…
I heard something.

501 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 15:59:28 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I might be wrong, but I think I heard a knock.

522 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 16:07:57 ID:pDLAdOqH0

For now,
I asked, “Are you here because of me?”.

535 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 16:12:41 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Do you have any relation to this room?”
Twice. (No)

What could this mean?

552 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 16:20:25 ID:pDLAdOqH0

It sort of sounds like a knock.

“Have you been here before I have?”

Once. (Yes)

559 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:24:39 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Can you talk?”

There was no reply.
I don’t understand anymore!

571 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:30:21 ID:pDLAdOqH0


I’m facing my PC.
80s lady is behind me.
We aren’t communicating through writing.
Now that I think of it, I’ve been quite rude…

“Are you aware of the old woman and the child in this room?” (There are

other spirits in 1-san’s room.)

There was a long pause before I heard two knocks. (No)

589 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 16:38:56 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“You tried to talk to me yesterday, right? Did you want to tell me something?”

Once. (Yes)

594 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:42:13 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Well, it’s normal, but she kept saying it so I got scared!
She isn’t doing it now though!

“I’m sorry for asking so many questions, but are you angry with me?”

Twice. (No)

Seems like there are no ill intentions.


609 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:45:54 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I pointed to my screen and asked, “Can you read what’s being displayed?”
She peeked at the screen from right next to me.

Twice. (No)

And then she went back, behind.


619 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 16:48:50 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Can I turn around?”

Once. (Yes)

Aaah… I’m going to turn around, kay?

632 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:51:42 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I can’t really see her, but she’s there.
I think she’s sitting down.


652 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 16:59:52 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Nope, doesn’t seem like she’s hitting anything to produce the sound.
The sound is just there. I’m not sure where it’s coming from.

I’m not using paper.
I don’t have any.

I tried asking if she could speak, again.
She didn’t respond, but now I could see her.


659 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:03:16 ID:pDLAdOqH0

How do I put this, it’s like a ‘wavelength’.
It gets stronger at night.
It’s, um, something like an electromagnetic wave.

>>654 (※Regarding Pia-tan’s current state)
She’s sitting with her knees to her chest, on the floor.
And making this anxious? expression.

“Do you know what situation you are in right now?”

Once. (Yes)

So she knows…


664 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:04:35 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I thought of something good.
How about three knocks for “I don’t know”?


677 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:07:29 ID:pDLAdOqH0

 Ah! Since neither me nor the place are the cause of her staying here, I thought that maybe she doesn’t know why she’s here.

“If you aren’t sure, can you knock thrice?”

Once. (Yes)

695 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 17:14:57 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Do you remember your name?”

Twice. (No)

709 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:18:51 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Do you want me to do something for you?”
Once. (Yes)

I don’t understand!

725 名前:◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 17:23:03 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Do you want to go to heaven?”
Thrice (I’m not sure)

She doesn’t understand?

733 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 17:27:03 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I think she’s from the later part of the Showa generation.
She looks around 20?

“When did you die? The 80s?”
Thrice. (I’m not sure)

Hmm, this is going nowhere.

743 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:30:47 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I managed to find some paper.

Can you read this? (It was printed text)

Thrice. (I’m not sure)

I wrote the hiiragana character for “A”.

“Can you read this?”

Once. (Yes)

Seems like she can.


756 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 17:34:34 ID:pDLAdOqH0

I made an ouija board with the hiiragana chart.


763 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 17:39:39 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Were you happy that I noticed you?”
Once. (Yes)

Hey, she’s kinda cute.

770 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:43:00 ID:pDLAdOqH0

How about this! Maybe I should try shaking her hand.

780 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:46:07 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Can I shake your hand?”

When I stretched out my right hand, it was grasped.

Which means that the ouija thing could work?

790 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:49:59 ID:pDLAdOqH0
It was the same as the first time.
I could feel like I was touching something, but there’s no heat.


801 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 17:53:34 ID:7klyR4w90

Okay, let’s call her Pia-chan lol (From Utopia)

811 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 17:56:37 ID:pDLAdOqH0

A name, huh.

For now, I explained to her how ouija works. Basically, she is to move my finger to communicate.

823 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 18:02:13 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“Can I call you Pia?”

There was a pause, then one knock. (Yes)

Okay, Pia it is!

827 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:41 ID:bOu9ZoCD0

So Pia is in her 20s?

828 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:47 ID:E/RTnFJ0O

Confirmed as Pia━━(゜∀゜)━━!!

829 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:47 ID:TMMKcMyF0

Pia lololol good job

830 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:47 ID:oaGBvIN60

Having a name is better!

831 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:53 ID:bOu9ZoCD0

But Pia probably can’t understand even if you give her a name out of the blue lol.

832 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:03:55 ID:AViM5Ryn0

Pia rofl now that’s moe!
How would she feel if she knew it came from that Utopia dance?

Miss Utopia, Pia for short lol
So cute!

833 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:04:26 ID:UdUutKGz0

839 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 18:07:07 ID:pDLAdOqH0

What? You want me to ask? lol

856 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 18:11:54 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“About yesterday…”
“What did you think of the ‘It’s surprisingly Utopia!’ dance?”


860 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:12:41 ID:LjllK/vK0


861 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:12:42 ID:oaGBvIN60


862 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:12:48 ID:E/RTnFJ0O

Haha, so it was scary!
You probably looked like a pervert.
Pia-tan moe.

863 名前:本当にあった怖い名無し :2005/05/29(日) 18:12:57 ID:7klyR4w90

lol you just frightened a ghost.


887 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 18:17:40 ID:pDLAdOqH0

Now, for the main topic.

“So what exactly do you want me to do?”

『I’m lonely』

…Uh, isn’t this a little dangerous?(;´Д`)

920 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog.. :2005/05/29(日) 18:24:12 ID:pDLAdOqH0

“And what exactly do you mean by that?”

『I was alone』

She’s not going to ask me to die, is she?

986 名前: ◆fkXmFVGog. :2005/05/29(日) 18:41:32 ID:pDLAdOqH0


I’m a freeter.
I’m working, so I’m not a NEET!
I have shifts on every day except Saturday.

“So, shall we talk now and then?”
