Hello! Here we are at another end of month post! I think next month I’m going to do another piece that features Cass and her childhood, but for now I’m going to do another one about Sam. Reading over these little pieces is easing me back into everything. The goal for April is to have a chapter out for the main universe! Until then, here’s a piece about Sam’s summer while Ed went on vacation. Enjoy!

Hello! We’re back with another end of month fiction piece! This one is from the same universe as New Home and Second Chances Hospital, this focuses on Sam. He’s a human that has the power to see faeries and talk with them too. I’m going to write more about him and his life a bit later, but for now I’m going to post a piece about Sam talking about his gift. He doesn’t really have a problem with it and I can’t wait to explore more about his life and how faeries play out in it. Enjoy!

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!

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.

See you next week!

Friday Post: Time to form Voltron and how much I love it.

voltron-squad-netflix

Hello! Sorry for falling off there for a bit. Job searching can take a lot out of me, but I’ve been watching a lot of things that I can’t wait to talk about. This week I’m going to talk about my new found love for the show Voltron: Legendary Defender. In the different fan circles that I’m a part of, I saw everyone talking about Voltron. I saw it on tumblr too and a few other places that I wanted to check it out. I love this show very much! Here are three reasons why I love the new Voltron. (I’m going to be using female pronouns to refer to Pidge.)

  1. The story: I always enjoy the different ways the Voltron story is reinvented, this one caught my interest quickly. In this Voltron the paladins come from Earth and they are helping Princess Allura make sure that Voltron doesn’t end up in the hands of the Galra Empire. I like how everyone has their own motivations and backstories that leave you wanting to know more about it. I want to know more about Shiro and his time when he was a prisoner. The same with Lance and his family back on Earth. Who were they? Does Lance have a big family? What about Pidge and her family? How did Hunk meet Lance and Pidge? Why did Keith get kicked out of the academy? There are so many questions that I can’t wait to have answered.
  2. The characters: I enjoy how everyone is very distinct from each other. Shiro, the leader who has flashbacks of his time when he was a prisoner. Lance, the jokester that does have a serious side underneath and feels homesick. Hunk, who I thought would be too afraid to do anything, can really step up when he has to. Keith, the lone wolf, who argues with Lance and even joined the food fight. It’s nice to see that there is more under his lone wolf persona. Pidge who I love that she’s into technology and wanting to find her family. Allura, who’s a princess that will fight for what she loves, even putting herself on the line. Then Coran who’s a very cool guy and there’s more I want to know about him. There’s Sendak and I want to know more about his motivations. My favorite is how each distinct personality comes together to make a very entertaining story.
  3. The setting: Another thing that stood out to me is the way that the Paladins can’t return to Earth. I thought they would be able to go back and forth, but at the moment they don’t have a way to get back home. It’s interesting to see the different places of the Galaxy such as the planet where Hunk meets Shay an alien who’s people were under Galra rule. Then there are the hints of the Altea kingdom from Allura and Coran’s descriptions. There’s more about the setting that I can’t wait to enjoy.

Overall, I’m happy to see a new remake of Voltron. It’s shaping up to be a pretty good one that I can’t wait to see.
