No Votes on My Poll

So, my very few readers, it is once again time for me to write my babble that you decide to read. After 2 weeks of the poll existing and no one voting, I have decided to follow what my friend said and just continue with the new style of posts. I have another idea that I would make another poll about, if I actually thought anyone would vote on it. At some point over the next few weeks, I’ll make a page that will have the links to the fanfictions I’ve posted about. I plan to update them the week after I mention them from now on. So, intrepid readers, look forward to that.

I’ve mostly continued to reread Harry Potter and the Daft Morons (which will hopefully be finished soon), but I’ve also finished watching Skyward Wing play through Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and watched the Back Cover video from the 2.8 game collection. All that’s left to prepare myself for Kingdom Hearts 3 on the 29th is to what Kingdom Hearts 0.2. I also watched the translated missions 851-855 from the Japanese version of KHUx. In it, Marluxia’s somebody, Lauriam’s looking for his sister (Strelitza) through her teammate Elrena, who is Larxene’s somebody. We still don’t know who the somebodies for Luxord or Demyz are. Also the opening theme for KH3 is now available on iTunes. Search for Face My Fears by Hikaru Utada.

The new chapters for the week are: Reality Bites Worm, Service with a Smile, Worm – Justice for All, Breaking the Guilded Cage (Tues, Thur, Fri), Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Omake), Tsunami, Taylor Varga Omake (Wed, Fri), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Ashes to Flames, Devil Ninja and Mauling Snarks. I also started on a few new interesting stories.

The first of these is ‘Drifting’ by AlphaDelta1001. It’s a Naruto fic that has Naruto being a badass and learning how to fight from animals. It’s a harem fic that has at least 7 girls. It has 52 chapters out, but I’m only on chapter 28 now. It’s interesting because it’s a Chunin Exam in another country (instead of in Konoha like it always is). It even has all of the Kages there. Looking forward to more interesting plot in the near future. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8833703/1/Drifting.

Next is a fic that came from a short by Seerking that another took over called, ‘The Rising of the Shield Heroine,’ by Tale Swapper. It’s a Worm and Rising of a Shield Hero crossover. It has Taylor getting the shield from the second story as her power. Queen Administrator gets her own body and is in charge of the ‘Halp’ system. It’s not that long so far, but I’m looking forward to more by this author. Here is the link – https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/the-rising-of-the-shield-heroine.51666/.

Now it’s time for (you guessed it) more new sakurademonalchemist fics I’ve read. I’ll start off with the newest one (meaning it came out this month), ‘Angels and Demons.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Final Fantasy 7 crossover, where female Harry is a Sephiroth look-a-like who was summoned via the Lifestream by Death Eaters. She gets back to her original home after fifth year and becomes a Monster Hunter and eventually runs into the SOLIDERS. Watch what happens, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13179246/1/Angels-and-Demons.

Returning to their unupdated fics from 2014, the first one is ‘Hunter’ and it’s sequel ‘Walker.’ It’s a Supernatural and Harry Potter crossover that has Vernon and Dudley getting killed by a Wendigo when Harry was young. This leads him to become a ‘research monkey’ for the Hunters. He gets along with Loki and eventually leaves Hogwarts to help hunters. In the sequel, he gets stuck in the past helping fix things, just 135 before he gets back home. The first one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9931180/1/Hunter and the second one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10120858/1/Walker.

Following that is ‘Angel’s Horn,’ which is a Supernatural and Magical Nanoha crossover. It has Hayate being Dean’s daughter and see goes looking for him after her two minders leave her alone. The brother’s find a demon in the ‘Book of Darkness’ and excise it, leading to the Guardians to be released. And how is connected to Loki? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10648699/1/Angel-s-Horn.

That’s it because I was busy working and studying so I’ll see everyone on Monday! Have fun and look forward to those new pages! And may your heart be your guiding key!

I Have an Archive Now

Friday

So, like I mentioned last post, I made an archive for my posts. A link to it can be found on the menu at the top of the main blog. It is separated into months for now, but I will be working on it so that it will be better accessible. I read some more God Slaying Blade Works, but mainly focused on Desperately Seeking Ranma. The only new chapter for today was from Mauling Snarks.

Because I was busy with life, I didn’t read much else today. Therefore, I’ll talk about Shokugeki no Soma (or as the American’s have renamed it, Food Wars!). It’s about Soma Yukihara, a teenager who loves cooking and wants to surpass his father and take over the family restaurant. However, when his father leaves to travel the world, he sends his son to an elite culinary school called, Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute. They only take the best and he does get in, but the school has an interesting practice, Shokugeki (or Food War). It’s a contest between people where both sides put have agreed to something happening if they lose (like giving the other person their position of power within the academy or agreeing to let a club continue instead of disbanding it). Watch how Soma and his friends learn more about how to cook while dealing with the challenges in their way. It’s fun and I need to catch up on it. It started off as a manga, but now has 3 anime seasons.

Nothing more today, so I’ll end this part here.

Saturday

I read a bit more God Slaying Blade Works, but again was mostly Desperately Seeking Ranma. The new chapters for today were: Stand Together and Smile (the last one of this story, with a maybe sequel in the future), Relic of the Future, Ashes to Flame, Stark Imprint and Heroes Assemble! I didn’t read much else, but I did watch parts of a few animes.

The first one was the first half of the first season of Initial D. Initial D (for initial drift) is an anime/manga about street racing by Shuichi Shigeno. It’s about Takumi (Tak) Fujiwara, who has been delivering tofu from his dad’s shop to hotels and other places on the other side of the mountain nearby every day before sunrise. He has become very good at driving it with his father’s (unbeknownst to him) subtle training. This has led him to not care very much about driving or racing, to his friends at the gas station he works at horror. One of his friends is on the local street racing team, which is challenged to a downhill race. Upon hearing that Tak’s father was once a famous street racers, he is asked to do the race. He instead sends Tak in his Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86) with a promise that if he wins, he can take the car for a date with a full tank of gas. He wins, but then becomes more involved in the street-racing world.   It’s a good anime and manga. It’s finished now with 719 chapters in the manga, 5 anime seasons, three movies and several OVAs.

The second one was a few episodes of Gurren Lagann. Gurren Lagann is one of the best ‘manly’ mecha animes around. It’s about Simon and Kamina, two humans, who, like the rest of their species, are forced to live in underground villages in a dystopian future by the Spiral King, Lordgenome. They dream of going to the surface and eventually get the chance to with a mecha named Lagann and a hot girl named Yoko. They eventually form Gurren Lagann, a team to free the world of the rule of Lordgenome and the beast men. It’s got 27 episodes that will make you laugh and cry, along with make you want to shout, “Who the hell do you think I am!”

I also heard that someone stole the KHIII game from a shipping company and that’s they’re playing and selling copies. I’m not happy with that for multiple reasons, but I’m not gonna pay attention to any information that’s not verified from the makers. Looking forward to the last trailer on Tuesday though. That’s it for now; tomorrow’s only a line away!

Sunday

Today was once again full of Desperately Seeking Ranma, with maybe a chapter of God Slaying Blade Works. The new chapters today were: The Unseen Hunt, Prime Directive: Hero and Tsunami. I didn’t do much else except for watching someone play through to where the Japanese version of KHUx (KH Unchained x) is (about 35 ‘episodes’ ahead) and learned what Larxene’s real name is (but I’m not gonna say).

I also read a fanfiction by VFSNAKE called ‘Naruto of the Saiyans.’ It has Bardock ending up on the Kyubi’s back instead of dying and getting sealed into Naruto as well. He and the Kyubi work together to change Naruto into a Saiyan and their work comes together when Orochimaru seals Naruto’s seal in the Forest of Death. When his teammates leave him for dead, he comes back better than even and plans to never be a pawn again. It has eight chapters currently and is infrequently updated.

R Rated Content

There are sexual situations, but no actual sex. This is currently limited to the omakes at the end of the chapters, but may come into the story itself later on.

Because I don’t have anything else, I’ll talk about Full Metal Panic! Full Metal Panic! is a light novel turned anime by Shoji Gatoh. It’s about a former child soldier, now a part of an anti-terrorist private military organization (Mithril), named Sousuke Sagara. He’s sent to Japan to protect a high school girl named Kaname Chidori, along with his teammates Kurz Weber and Melissa Mao. Why she’s being protected and who’s targeting her are unknowns to them.

Sousuke is sent to her school, but as he has never been in a ‘normal’ situation, he is considered a military nut and Kaname is very annoyed that he keeps trying to protect her. Eventually, the enemy attacks and everything is revealed, including the reason why bipedal machines even exist in a world that is not that different from our own. It’s a good series with 23 novels and 4 anime series (including one that’s just for silliness and is awesome called Fumoffu, the name is eventually explained).

Have a great day and I’ll see everyone when I post tomorrow!

Monday

Today was yet again full of Desperately Seeking Ranma, but the end is in sight. The new chapters for today were: Move On: Tales of Marinette & Adrien, Black Sky (there is going to be a full week of updates! Sqweee! [yes, I’m excited, so what?]), Mauling Snarks, Celestial Worm and Death March (Yay!). There was also the early release of the last KHIII trailer! Which can be found here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz1w_uW3lSE.  There’s so much info and WTF in it, I don’t know what to think. Still looking forward to Jan 29th though.

I watched the first few episodes of Death Parade, but it’s not really catching my interest. I really like the opening theme, but the series just seems kinda meh to me. It’s about how if two people die at the same time, instead of just being judged, they are sent to Decim at the Quindecim bar to play a game to discover where their souls belong (reincarnation or the void). A female human with no name works as his assistant, learning how to judge human souls, while helping Decim learn how to read into the emotions behind the actions.

That’s a wrap for today, looking forward to posting on Thursday! I may take off for Christmas after that, but I don’t know yet. I’ll mention it next time if I decide to. See you then!

The End of the Death March (for now)

Tuesday

Today was once again, more Death March. I got only got to part 30 of act 16, but that was because I finished watching SkywardWing’s play through of Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. The new chapters for today were from Service with a Smile, Paranormal Investigator Squad (now with a 5 Nights at Freddie’s crossover), It’s in the Cards and Reality Bites Worm. I also started watching Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, also from SkywardWing. After that it’s just 0.2 and Back Cover (since I’m playing and keeping up with Kingdom Hearts Unionx on my phone) and I’ll be ready for Kingdom Hearts 3 next year! I also forgot to mention, make sure you watch the new opening movie trailer for KH3 with the new theme, Face My Fears, it’s great. I’ll put a link here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VawSnaxtSI.

I’ll talk about a show that I rewatched a little bit of today called Princess Tutu. It’s about a story about a Prince and a Raven’s battle that wasn’t completed because the author died, escaping into the real world. However, the author made sure he would be able to direct things even if he died. Because things weren’t moving along, the author introduced a new element to the story, by giving a duck that had fallen in love with the Prince the ability to turn into a girl. She is also the only one who can return his heart shards to him (he shattered his heart to seal away the Raven). However, is this what he really wants?

It’s a pretty good, if a bit dark at times, story. It’s based on ballet and Duck’s or Ahiru in the Japanese version (which means duck anyway) transformed state, Princess Tutu, helps whichever character is in trouble that episode by dancing with them. There’s a dark twist in the middle and the ‘author’ is working against them most of the time, but I’ve always enjoyed it anyway. The first line of the anime is ‘Once upon a time, there was a man who died.’ Be sure to look it up.

That’s it for today, see everyone tomorrow!

Wednesday

I finished Death March today! Or at least up to where the story is currently. I’m glad I read it since the 78th part update cause I would have been worried until the next one if it had ended on the 77th. The next post on the Japanese story will be on the 16th, so I suspect that it will be translated on the 17th or 18th so I’ll look for it then. The new chapters for today were – Another Fine Mess, Seperated at Birth, Warlock Organization 13 and a half, and Heroes Assemble!

I started rereading the fanfiction ‘God Slaying Blade Works by Marcus Galen Sands. It’s a crossover between Fate/Heaven’s Feel and Campione! where when Illya and Shirou are about to face Angra Mayu, they are transported (because of the Grail and Rin’s use of the Kaleidoscope) to the Campione! world. Shirou kills Angra Mayu and becomes a campione. He works with Illya to get home to Sakura, while trying to figure out what to do with his new powers and friends. He joins the main story after the fight with Voban. I enjoy this story, but I wish it was updated more frequently. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8560965/1/God-Slaying-Blade-Works.

That’s all I did today, other than sleeping a lot. Looking forward to posting tomorrow!

Thursday

Today I continued reading God Slaying Blade Works, along with a few chapters of Desperately Seeking Ranma. The only new chapters that came out today is for Master Potter of Kamar-Taj. I also finished rewatching Princess Tutu, which was as good as I remember it being.

The only new thing I read today was “Roku de nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records” or “Akashic Records of a Bastard Magic Instructor” by Tarō Hitsuji. It’s about Glenn Radars, who is a lazy person that has been mooching off his former magic instructor for a year. She forces him to become a magic instructor at a famous magic school, even though he hates magic. There he meets Rumia Tingel and Sistine Fibel who he eventually takes a liking to and all three help each other through the coming events. Though he’s like this now, he was once an assassin for the crown and he uses those skills to take on the opponents that try to harm his students. It was originally a light novel (that has 13 volumes and is still ongoing), it now has an anime and a manga version. I read the first book and watched all 12 episodes of the anime today. It’s pretty good and I’ll want to read the rest, but we still don’t really know what the Akashic Records are.

Also, thought I haven’t used it myself, I’m aware that PVP became available on PoGo today. I’ll try it out soon and mention what I think of it on here. I’m also going to look into making a page where you can see the archived posts without having to search through the main page, look forward to it!  See you when I post again on Monday!
