Interactive Live Show[edit]

Interactive Live Show 1998 "WORLD CELL" was the sixth Interactive Live Show played by Hirasawa. It was the first time audiences could participate through the internet.[1] The story involves a Gardener King afflicted with Existence Paralysis (存在麻痺 Sonzai Mahi?), and the relief efforts of Hirasawa (ヒラサワ) and the Rescue Bridge Guild (救済する橋のギルド Kyuusai Suru Hashi no Girudo?) as they build bridges to reach the World Cell at the ends of the earth.[2]

It was broadcast on television, but no video release was ever issued.
