Fiction Post: Beginnings

6882092-men-holding-the-word-fiction-concept-3d-illustrationI did it! I finally got around to finishing this before the end of the month! I gave myself a goal to finish this and post it on the last day of the month and I did! I’m doing little pieces like this to get back into writing for New Home. This is when Will met Hamilton when they were children. I hope it sheds a little more light to why it hurt Will so much after what happened. It feels really good to post again. Enjoy!

Preview of Psychic Power: My new love for Mob Psycho 100

mob-psycho-100-one-anime

Hello! We’re back with a new show that I’ve been watching. The show is called Mob Psycho 100, it’s about a young man called Shigeo Kageyama who has psychic powers, but he doesn’t want to use them very much. He knows how dangerous they can be so he tries to keep his emotions on a very tight leash. However, when he becomes very emotional his powers come out. He does try his best to keep it under control despite the different stresses in his life. Kageyama has a part time job where he works with Arataka Reigen, who fools people into thinking that he’s the powerful psychic, but cares a lot about Mob. This show is created by ONE the same mangaka that did One Punch Man, so I really looked forward to watching it. If anyone wonders why the art looks different Yusuke Murata, the mangaka from Eyeshield 21 did the art. I like ONE’s style though and I enjoy the story too.

Due to me not keeping up with my schedule I’m going to post a small summary about Mob Psycho 100. Next week I’m going to talk about how much I love this show.

Until then, see you!

Play Ball: Diamond no Ace Chapter 2 (read through and thoughts)

woz6t

Hello everyone! I’m back with my Daiya read through! Sorry for taking so long to update this, but I’m hoping to try and get myself on an updating schedule that I can use. Alright so when we last left off our sweet protagonist Eijun Sawamura has been introduced to the amazing baseball school Seidou and is going to face the almost pro player Azuma Kiyokuni with troublemaker Miyuki as his catcher. Now let’s begin chapter two!

-The chapter starts out with the recap of what happened in last one with Eijun getting ready for his match with Azuma with Miyuki as his catcher. It’s nice to see that despite his earlier bravado he’s still a bit nervous about pitching. It’s so cute to see.

-I really enjoy the way Miyuki riles Azuma up, but goes over to help Eijun when he gets nervous. I feel like Miyuki knows more about everything than what he’s letting on.

-It was cool to see the way Eijun could switch his play in mid swing. He already has a good eye on how he plays even though he hasn’t had any proper training yet. I know it’s to give Eijun room to grow, but I still like being able to see him that he has more to learn.

-I know Miyuki likes to joke as a way to help calm Eijun down and that’s something I really like about him. I like how he’s a jokester, but he wants Eijun to do his best. It’s like he’s helping Eijun get over his nerves, though in his own way. It’s sweet to see that he’s doing it in his own way and he can see Azuma come down too. Another plus for Miyuki.

-In his own way Miyuki showed Eijun that he doesn’t have to try and come up with the plays all on his own. I think because Eijun spent so much time focusing on his old team that he didn’t focus on himself. I only started, but Eijun looks like the type of character to care more about everyone around him instead of himself. While in turn Miyuki probably cares more about himself with little people he cares about here and there.

-After Miyuki talked to him, Eijun found another strength he has. He also learned something new in the process.

-Eijun’s face when Miyuki calls him partner will always be the cutest. It’s almost as if he hasn’t had a partner before and now he has one with this pitcher he just met. Then he gets upset afterwards and it’s one of the many reasons why I love Eijun.

-The match continues on with Eijun learning how to throw different balls to throw off Azuma. Each time he throws one Azuma can’t hit it. The look on Miyuki and Rei’s faces were great. They’re going to really support Eijun in the future I can tell.

-During the match Eijun and Miyuki starts using signals to each other. Eijun is starting to trust Miyuki little by little in this match even though he didn’t like him very much at first. I think that’s going to happen a lot between them.

-It’s only his first unofficial match, but Eijun’s potential is coming through. His special move might be a fastball since it looked like that was something he subconsciously held back due to the members of his previous team. He didn’t want to overshadow them. Eijun continues to be very sweet.

-I like that Rei could see his potential and knew he would be a good fit for Seidou. She continues to be very awesome to me, especially with the way she describes how Eijun didn’t know he had the potential to be great, until his last match when it came out by accident. I hope we can still see her in the future.

-When Eijun figured out his own pitch and the amazing face he made was very cute. I know I mentioned it a lot in this review, but he’s a very cute protagonist.

-It was nice to see Eijun’s confidence once he knew Miyuki had his back. He was able to throw his pitch much better than the first time around.

-In the end he won his match and learned something new about the skill that stayed dormant in him. Between Rei and Miyuki it finally came out. It can only grow from there.

-However, now Eijun has to make the tough decision about telling his friends that he won’t be going to school with them. It’s going to be a very hard thing to tell them.

-While Rei didn’t push him to go to Seidou, she pretty much knows what his decision is going to be. Something that will happen next chapter.

I’m really starting to enjoy the series. I’m looking forward to reading about Eijun and Miyuki’s growth together as a team.

Next chapter starts Eijun’s next chapter.

See you then!

The Daily Life of a Shinigami: Why I enjoy Kyoukai no Rinne

kyoukai-no-rinne-tv

Hello! Today I’m going to talk about my love for Rumiko Takahashi’s new series Kyoukai no Rin-ne or Rinne of the Boundary. The show focuses on Rinne Rokudo, a half human, half Shinigami teenager and Sakura Mamiya, a girl that can see ghosts and Shinigami, and their adventures while going to high school. After Inuyasha this show isn’t as action orientated and feels very slice of life with the jokes along with the adventures that Sakura and Rinne go on. This is another Rumiko Takahashi show that I enjoy very much.

The first reason is the characters. In many of her works there are always a few characters that stand out to me. In Rinne I like how many of the characters have their stories connected to each other. Rinne who tries to do his shinigami duties while living in the human world. Sakura who didn’t like seeing spirits at first goes on to help Rinne with his duties, sometimes even helping the spirits solve their problems. Jumonji, an exorcist who normally takes out ghosts first and asks questions later.

Ageha, the shinigami that likes Rinne, though ends up causing more trouble for him even when she means well. That’s just the main four! There are others that I really like such as his grandmother Tamako, his dad Sabato (even though he’s such a bad dad), Kain, Renge, and Rokumon to name a few that appear quite often.  As with many of her series the characters bring their own twists to the story.

A second reason why I like Rinne is the story. On top of being a fan of action and Gundams, slice of life is another favorite genre I have that Rinne doing different little adventures day by day that I look forward to seeing. Every day is different with him trying to figure out how to solve a problem, doing a job for his grandma, or trying to get his father back for dumping another debt on him there’s always something new.

A third reason why I enjoy Rinne is the paranormal aspect with him being half shinigami. There’s nothing I love more than seeing the lives of spirits and the afterlife. I like stories that explore it in a light hearted way. That yes this person may be a vengeful spirit though there’s a reason why and Rinne is trying to make sure that they can pass on. I’m glad that Rinne doesn’t have a problem being half shinigami either. Through Rinne’s adventures you can see different side of the afterlife from the way people are reborn to the illegal business that tries to take people before their time to the demons of hell. It gives a pretty big picture of how things are that makes it enjoyable to watch.

A little extra that I find cute whenever I watch is the call backs to her other series Inuyasha, Ranma ½ and Maison Ikkoku, so any fans of her older works can enjoy those little callbacks to the show.

Kyoukai no Rin-ne is a funny show with light hearted comedy and romantic comedy in the background. I recommend this for new and old fans of Rumiko Takahashi work.

Update and things that are coming soon!

long-time-no-see-479x240

Hello everyone! Man September got here before I know it! I was busy trying my hand at this adulting thing so that’s why my updates are sporadic again. It’s funny that this is my first year where I don’t have to register for classes. I’ve been doing it for so long that I nearly forgot that I didn’t have to do it anymore. I also became a driver which scares me a bit because this is my first time driving, but I’m getting the hang of it.

So let’s see I missed last month when it came to goals. I’m trying to figure out what to do while I’m job searching since there are some things I have to pay for now. I’m trying to get back into writing I miss writing my serials and I have so many ideas for them. I hated to go on hiatus for so long due to school and then trying to figure out what I was going to do next with my life. So I’m going to work harder to either get a chapter out or at least a drabble or something related to my serials. For now I’ll talk about the shows I’m going to touch on next Friday.

Next Friday I’m going to talk about Kyoukai no Rin-ne or Rinne of the Boundary, a new show from Inuyasha’s mangaka Rumiko Takahashi.
