Anime Week (and the New Quest Continues)

Hey peoples!  It’s once again time for Matt’s ramblings!  It’s been a pretty boring week, but at least my hours are back up again.  Yay!  I’ve mostly been rereading (more like listening) to Death March web novel.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, Less Than Zero, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mauling Snarks (Sat, Mon & Fri), The Unseen Hunt, The Rising of the Shield Heroine, Celestial Worm, Seerking’s Asylum, Ginny’s Plan, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Naruto: The Game of Life, Titanfall and Taylor Varga (Omake).

I participated in the Torchic Community Day for PoGo even though I wasn’t feeling the greatest, but I still got seven shinies!  It’s raid week and tomorrow there’ll be three hours where Lapras will be available as a raid boss continually and it has a shiny chance!  I watched the new anime The Rising of the Shield Hero and was honestly not that impressed (especially with the last few episodes).  I’ve read the chapters that depict that battle and they drew out it, a lot.  Though I have to say I’m looking for to the next episode where some characters get their comeuppance (read the princess and the King)!

I also watched what’s out for the anime Wise Man’s Grandson.  It’s another transported to another world anime based off a light novel.  It has a man get reborn into a new world when he dies and is taught magic by his adopted grandfather (who is very famous, but never tells the main character).   He’s very powerful by the time he becomes 15, but he’s never taught anything about the common sense of the world.  Watch as he goes to Magic Academy and changes the world!

Finally (for this part) I watched the first season of Overlord (another anime from a light novel based on a transported person).  This one has a gamer whose favorite game is shutting down.  He’s the last of his guild around and decides to stay online until the server is shut down.  He changes a line in an NPC, saying that she’s in love with him.  When the server is shut down, he and the base are transported to a new world.  The NPC’s come to life and he is stuck as a Lich.  He investigates the world and plans to spread the name of his guild Aniz Ooal Gown so if others of his guild are there, they’ll find him.  There are now three seasons and 13 light novels out now.

I’ll do the new fanfics before the quest stories.  The author of Mauling Snarks (CmptrWz) has a new story, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?  It’s a Worm and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  A broken Unison device from Belka finds Taylor triggering and finding her a good match (magically) ‘eats’ the Shard.  It’s interesting even though there are only three chapters so far.

Next, I read Overlord – Lich and Vampire by Seerking (because I was watching the anime).  It’s the same, except another guild member logs on not long before the server shuts down and is also transported with everyone.  Watch as she changes things (though not much since it’s only five chapters and hasn’t been updated since 2017).

Then, sakurademonalchemist came out with a new story (though I know it from a compliation fic), Demon Skylark.  It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover where Kyouya is reborn (lol) into Naruto Uzumaki.  He hates Konoha because it’s full of fake carnavores and he runs away to Suna.  There he meets Fem Gaara (Gaia) and they become close.  Only one chapter so far.

Onto the quest with Myrddin de Celestis, Chapter 20 is Ruby’s Fate.  It was a two-chapter RWBY and Harry Potter crossover.  Fem. Harry leaves her universe and ends up in the RWBY one.  There’s not much here, but she ends up helping them during the end of season 2.

Chapter 21 is Hidden Paths.  It was an eight-chapter Harry Potter story where after Dumbledore dies, Harry discovers that Dumbles sealed away much of his potential.  It starts coming back to him in segments.  He and Ginny train to put an end to the war.  Then Dumbles returns.  It’s okay but needs some editing.  Chapter 22 (Impossible Awakening) is a different version of the first chapter (it’s better, but darker).

Chapter 23 is GHOST.  It was a seven-chapter Harry Potter and Danny Phantom crossover.  Danny Phantom is a really great cartoon that ended too abruptly.  It’s about Danny Fenton, whose parents are ghost hunters.  They build a ghost portal, but it doesn’t work.  Danny accidentally fixes it, but becomes half ghost.  He uses his ghost form to fight and capture the ghosts.  As I said, they ended things really fast.  I wish they had continued it.

Harry almost dies saving a kid and awakens his ghost side.  He uses it to reveal the dark side of Hogwarts.  Along with finding a painting with two more founders.  It’s an okay one, but not the greatest.  Chapter 24 (Spirit of the Phantasm) is the same, but different and was started after this one.  It focuses on going to the Greengrass house first.

Chapter 25 is Time Will Tell.  It was a Harry Potter story with five chapters.  In it, Harry and Ginny have lived to a future where the war is lost.  They use an artifact to go back in time but end up in their baby bodies.  Not much, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 26 is Shifters.  I’ve read this one a while back and it was fun.  It was a twelve-chapter Harry Potter and Negima crossover.  It has Harry discovering he is a shifter after second year and can change into anyone he touches.  He fakes his death and makes a new identity (Eva from Negima) to give Ginny a friend.  They bring changes to Hogwarts.  Chapter 27 (TransShift) is a Christmas 5th year version where he doesn’t fake his death.  It’s three chapters, but no Negima crossover.

Chapter 28 is Copykitten.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  It has Fem. Harry being hidden as a male from everyone (including herself).  She has mystical eyes that allow her to copy everything she sees, including spells.  Doesn’t get much past her going into the Leaky Cauldron.

Chapter 29 is Balance in the Power of Gaia.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is under a spell that causes people/creatures to fall in love with him.  He rebels and ends up at the Creeveys.  It’s kinda meh in my opinon.

The last one I’ll talk about is Chapter 30, Avenge the Lost.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter, MCU and Avengers crossover.  Harry is the brother of the Boy-Who-Lived and when Death Eaters ‘kill’ his youngest sister (she is brought back but doesn’t have control of her magic) he claims he’ll have vengeance and runs away.  He meets Black Widow and they have a brief fling.  Years later, he returns and starts taking out DEs.  It ends with Fury sending Black Widow after Harry for the Avenger Initiative.

That’s it for today.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

No One for a Week!

Wow, nobody’s even visited the site since last Thursday. I’m sad to realize this, but maybe I need to advertise more. If someone has suggestions or thinks I’m doing something wrong, please tell me. Or if you want to be read something and give my thoughts on it, let me know and I’ll get around to it.

Tuesday

So to finish yesterday’s new fanfictions (they’re all still Quatermass’ stories), the first is ‘Separated at Birth’. It’s a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover happening after the events of the HP books. It’s revealed that Harry is not really a Potter (causing Ginny and most people to leave him), but was really stolen from another universe to become the Boy Who Lived. Taking few people with him (Hermione, Luna and George) he gets Zelretch’s help to go to meet his now younger twin sister, Rin Tohsaka a year or so before the Grail War. Watch as his presence changes many things. It has 22 chapters and is ongoing. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12817778/1/Separated-at-Birth.

The last one from yesterday was, ‘Plenipotent Player Prince.’ It’s a crossover between Code Geass and Overlord. Overlord is a light novel/anime about a guy who stays logged in on a VR game on its last day until the servers shut down. When it happens, he and the NPCs in his guild’s base are transported to a new world (including a succubus he changed to description to love him). Now a real life lich, he and the now alive NPCs take this world by storm after he takes the guild’s name as his own, Ainz Ooal Gown. In the fic, instead of being transported to a new world, most the characters a reborn as Code Geass characters, with Ainz Ooal Gown being Lelouch. See how this changes things. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13001843/1/Plenipotent-Player-Prince.

Moving on to today, I have more Qautermass fics (Yay). No really, they’re good. The first for today was, ‘Gorgon and Thanatos’. It’s another Harry Potter and Fate/Zero Crossover (the author has a few). It has things going wrong again after the books and Harry going to be a guardian of a hidden library in Fuyuki a few years before the Fourth Grail War. He isn’t a participant, but ends up accidentally have a Heroic Spirit of his own as a familiar. The war is much different because of it. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12299723/1/Gorgon-and-Thanatos.

Next is ‘Parva Sub Ingenti’. It means, ‘The small under the huge’ and it’s a crossover between Harry Potter (surpise!) and “Gate: Thus the JDF Fought There”. Gate is a story about a Gate to a medieval magical world appearing in Japan and an army coming through to attack. The attack is eventually repelled and the JDF (Japanese Defense Force) is sent through to find out about this new world and get reparations. One soldier is Itami (an otaku who happened to be there when the attack happened and helped save people). He leads a group to map this new world and help as many pretty girls as possible and have them follow him around. Also, there’s a huge dragon!

The fic has Harry, Hermione and Luna going through the veil (which leads to the world on the other side of the Gate) several years before the Gate would open. Harry ends up saving someone who would become a villain in the original story and living his life there. See how this massively changes the story. Also Sirius is still alive. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13041939/1/Parva-Sub-Ingenti.

Following is ‘Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell’. It’s a crossover between Thor and Fate/Zero that has Loki becoming the master of Caster (Medea) in the Fourth Grail War after being saved by Zelretch (this is after the events of the movie Thor, before he meets Thanos). He uses this as a way to work through his frustrations about his family and learn more about himself. It’s finished and the author plans to make a sequel at a later time.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12190704/1/Light-the-Blue-Touch-Paper-and-Run-Like-Hell.

‘Cambion’ is a Harry Potter and High School DxD crossover. It has Harry as a half devil with Riser Phenex being his father. James kicks him out of the Potter family for having a different father. Harry finds out he is a devil in his fifth year from Hermione and is asked to be Rias’ betrothed instead of his father. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928183/1/Cambion.

The last fic (for today) from Quartermass is ‘Neopolitan and the Goblet of Fire’. It is a crossover between Harry Potter and RWBY in which a female Harry is Neopolitan. During the events at the end of the 3rd season, the Goblet of Fire summons Neo back to the Harry Potter world. She then decides to take revenge on her father and Sirius (who threw her through the Veil at a young age). It’s interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12723696/1/Neopolitan-and-the-Goblet-of-Fire.

I read a few more chapters of Remnant’s Reclaimer and started rereading a RWBY fanfiction called ‘The Remnant Knight’ by Masseffect-TxS.  It has Jaune sending Pyrrha away at the end of the 3rd season and facing Cinder himself.  This reveals an ability not even he knew about in his bloodline that helps him, at a cost.  Watch as he overcomes it and sets the world on a new path. Is a harem fic.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11885368/1/The-Remnant-Knight.

Homestuck was mentioned in a fic and I went looking for it. I only got to the 27th page, but it looks … weird. It’s an MS paint adventure about, trolls, I think. I’ll get back to it later. The link to it is here – https://www.homestuck.com/.

Lastly I read a new chapter from Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies That Won’t Stop Bugging Me. For those who don’t remember, it’s a one shot/short story repository for him.

See you tomorrow.

Wednesday

I read a lot again today, so get ready! I read some more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men. However I read more of Quartermass’ fic today… sorry going to be for a little bit more. The first one is called, ‘Wings of the Forsaken’ and is a Harry Potter and “Sekirei” crossover. Sekirei is a manga/anime about a young Japanese man who gets caught up in a contest between aliens called Sekirei who are forced to fight because of a mad man’s whims. Most of the Sekirei are beautiful girls who bond with their ‘destined one’ and fight until only one remains. Minato ‘wings’ several Sekirei and is also forced to compete. It’s interesting, but you can tell it’s a story for young men (what with all the panty shots).

Wings of the Forsaken has Harry cast out of the Potter’s for being Lupin’s son (who helped Lily overcome the love potion James has her under) after the Halloween attack. He is eventually left in Japan and is taken in by Miya. After taking over the company in charge of the Sekirei, Harry is forced back to England for the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He, his parents and Sekirei will take Britain by storm. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12494380/1/Wings-of-the-Forsaken.

The next one is called ‘Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me’. It’s a Pirates of the Caribbean movie series and Sekirei crossover that has Jack Sparrow reborn as Minato. Watch as he makes the contest very interesting (and writes his former life as books). The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510813/1/Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho-An-Ashikabi-s-Life-for-Me.

The last one from Quartermass (again today) is called ‘Warlock’. It is a Code Geass and Harry Potter crossover. It has Harry going through the veil in fifth year and ending up in the Code Geass universe. He becomes Kallen’s boyfriend and helps out their group before Zero shows up. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12995318/1/Warlock.

Another new story I read was called ‘The Black Emperor’ by Primordial Vortex. It’s a pure Code Geass fic were Lelouch is more prepared and has Milly on his side already. It is a harem fic. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/1/The-Black-Emperor.

I also completely reread a fic called ‘The Ash Connection’ by I am Lu. It has Ash and all his former and current traveling companions (It’s set in Black and White), rivals and friends on the run from a Team Rocket controlled Mewtwo. It involves the G-Men and it’s politics. Also has many pairings including Ash/Misty and sequel. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9103189/1/The-Ash-Connection.

See you tomorrow!

Thursday

Not that much overall read today, but again there are a few Quartermass fics. The first is ‘Disquiet’ and it is a Harry Potter and “Black Lagoon” crossover. Black Lagoon is about a shipping company who does illegal things for money who capture a Japanese salary man for a disk he is transporting. Rock, as he is later called, is abandoned to die by his company and falls in with the Lagoon company.  Watch as he, Revy (a two-handed female sharpshooter), and the rest of the crew handle their jobs and the mess that follows.  I also started rewatching the anime a few days ago to remind myself of the series, I would definitely recommend it.

In Disquiet, Harry (now Hal) is the partner of a character from later in the series, Frederica Sawyer. She (in the story) is Bellatrix’s daughter. They were thought dead by the Wizarding World (WW) after James and Sirius try to make Horcruxes from them (and says they were killed practicing dark magic). When Harry’s brother dies in his fifth year, the WW comes looking for them. Only to find them very much willing to kill anyone who comes after them with the intent to kill. It happens during the Killer Maid arc and doesn’t have much to do with the main characters of Black Lagoon. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12459701/1/Disquiet.

The other one from Quartermass today is a one-shot called ‘Coconuts?’. It’s a Fate/Stay Night – Unlimited Blade Works afterstory that has Zelretch sending Monty Python and the Holy Grail for Arturia to watch… yeah. I would not recommend for the actual King Arthur to ever watch it, as hilarious as it is. On a side note, when a friend from summer camp (when I was in high school) heard I hadn’t seen it, he recited it to me verbatim over the next few days (impressive right). I have since seen it.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12112155/1/Coconuts.

Other than a few more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men, I read a new chapter of Parva Sub Ingeti and a new fic, ‘Reaching for a Dream’ by Noodlehammer. It is the first of a series of Naruto fics and the only one not a crossover. It has an older Naruto than the other characters normally his age and different female Kyuubi. Warning! This is an M fic for a reason. It has many Lemons in it (if you don’t know what that means, it is slang for R rated interactions between men and women). Don’t like, don’t read.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/1/Reaching-for-a-Dream.

Finally, I finished adding the new characters to my own fanfiction and am looking forward to writing more to eventually post it.  Remember, I want to have at least 10 chapters from the original fanfiction in it before I post it.  That’s it for this post, long as it is (over 1900 words!). I’ll see you on Monday and hope more people at least come to the site!
