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!
