Help With Website Name (Japanese)

Postby JoshF » Tue Dec 01, 2015 2:26 am

I will be re-launching MEGASHOCK in 2016, and there's one detail regarding the title that I would like some assistance with. The official title will be "MEGASHOCK", with the logo stylized as "メガSHOCK" in reference to the Japanese Sega Mega Drive logo. As for the subtitle (English: "Illusion of the Electric Current"), I am having trouble deciding between "~電流の錯覚~" or "~電流の幻覚~". I am leaning towards "sakkaku" because it denotes optical illusions as well as hallucinations. However, since I haven't seriously studied Japanese in a decade, I would like to defer to a native or experienced Japanese speaker as to which one sounds cooler.

Sorry for the lateness. Ironically, haven't been popping in here. And, glad to see you're still around. :)

幻覚 has more of a hallucinatory connotation to it than 錯覚, which as you said is more of an illusion. Like, in reference to taking drugs, it's 幻覚をみる.

Hope that helps.
