YIIK2, also known as ONISM1969, is a cancelled sequel to YIIK. Inspired by Wild Arms, it would follow four different scenarios which could be done in any order. The different scenarios would all take place at different points in time. With ONISM the different characters were allowed to speak to each other, despite being from different times. One notable time period is 1969, and the ONISM forum was done with a bulletin board instead of a computer.
After a musician (based on John Lennon) gets stuck in the Soul Space, he decides to send music towards different realities in a call for help. Someone hears the music and it inspires them to start a cult to make people enter the soul space en masse. Based on Richard Dawkins, An ethologist character from the University of Oxford would have to re-evaluate their scientific world view due to the now realized existence of souls and the Soul Space.
Emilia, a woman with a beautiful face, goes on ONISM to buy acid to disfigure her face with. Aaron, Claudio's brother, was also going to be a protagonist. Alex played some role in the story, but to what extent is unknown.
