Kill la Kill: Season R – Chapter Three: Battle for Affection

Everybody’s starting to feel mixed emotions, causing a lack of sleep, confused thoughts, and doubt in themselves. Ryuko stays up at night, constantly thinking about the recent conversation with her older sister, Satsuki. For some reason, just thinking about it brings a sudden sense of embarrassment.

As for Jakuzure, she’s taken up a new activity to try and control the overwhelming emotions that dwell within. However, they seem to get the best of her and starts a spiral of actions that brings her a new rival.

How will these two be able to deal with their emotions when the main cause steps into play?

“Maybe you’re curious to see what she wants.”

I was here first. I was the one who was by your side ever since we were little. We grew up together, saw each other change, and now I’m put on the sideline all because some dead sister suddenly comes into your life?

A Brother’s Forgiveness

Family is one of the strongest bonds a person can have in their life. It’s both their reason for going on and their motivation to better themselves. However, family can also lead to a person’s downfall.

Sometimes, comparison between family member’s status in life can lead a person to lash out in rebellion, leading to damaging results. And sometimes, even awakening the inner demon within.

A light mist has slowly drifted down upon the entire forest. The woman suddenly comes to a stop. She begins to take deep breaths and her voice starts cracking as if she’s holding back tears.

“None of this would have happened if I…”

Woman in the Mirror (Part 3)

I’ve lost track of exactly how many people have suffered from my experiments. A handful, a dozen, a few dozen most likely? All I know is until I get the results I want, that number will continue to climb.

It’s been a few days since I’ve checked up on the condition of my current subject; perhaps he has some new findings for me that I’ve been wanting for some time.

“Ms. Tanamura,” Yuuka calls out, “the current subject is about to wake up. His vital signs are beginning to change.”

“Unlock the doors so he can proceed,” I answer.

Tenchu: Shadows of Azuma – 9. Base of Operations

With the princess still captured, the Azuma ninja and their allies can only proceed with caution as they continue to look for clues.

A place to give out special assignments, such like assassinations?”

Yes.” Continue reading Tenchu: Shadows of Azuma

Senran Kagura: Romance of a Ninja (Part One)

A lone high school student is the last remaining of his kind. After a certain event years ago, he was destined to live up to a certain requirement. With an upcoming event, his decisions will have to come rushed and decisive.

“This may not be a simple decision, but it will be one that affects not only you, but somebody else. You understand?”

“Yes.”

Lush Grass/Green Scales

The green scenery of a forest is always a beautiful sight to one’s eye. However, just because something is appealing, it doesn’t mean it isn’t deadly; dangerous creatures live in the forest, and one in particular likes to hunt.

Seeing the well developed deer brings a small grin to the woman’s face. Beginning the hunt, the woman quickly latches to a nearby tree and ascends high into the leaves.

Sorceress of the Dead

Hiding around the corner, the last remaining sorceress could only look forward, keeping her eyes on the narrow hallway, I can’t go out like this! I’ve come so far and there’s no way I’m letting myself go out like this!

A place that was once the pinnacle of magical development and research, is now the last remaining line of defense from the infected that roam the city streets. The sorceress came to this building in search for the forbidden spell that could reverse all this, but It all seemed to be in vain; all she found throughout her search were just the bodies of once proud masters of all things mystical, now rotten corpses wandering the hallways.

The sorceress turns around and looks at the wall, running her hands along it in a frantic search, “C’mon, there has to be an invisible switch here! Hell, even a fake brick in the wall would be just fine, too!”

As her hands feel around for some kind of clue to being a fake wall, her fingers feel a faint breeze coming through from between two of the bricks. She tries to push the bricks in, and even tries to remove them, but they don’t budge.

“Come on, come on. There’s got to be something there. I can’t see it, but I know something has to be back there! In a fit of anger, she punches at the wall and takes a few steps back to get a better look of the entire wall from top to bottom. As her eyes scan the wall, something suddenly comes to thought.

“This is a magical building… What if I wasn’t suppose to see it with my natural sight…?”

She approaches the wall again and places her hand over where the breeze is coming from. She takes a deep breath and closes her eyes, uttering the words “Gaze of Light.” Upon opening her right eye, a small, purple aura floods out, enveloping her entire eye. Temporarily losing her natural eye sight, everything is outlined in a bright pink border. However, just on the other side of the wall, there’s a small, square shaped blue object resting on a podium.

“What is that? More importantly, how do I get it out? I don’t know any spells strong enough to blow this down.”

She knocks on the wall just to make sure it’s solid brick. She blinks and the purple aura around her eye fades. She runs through all of the spells in her mind that she can do without an issue, but none of them are really destructive in nature. At least, nothing that could make an explosion. As she’s going through her spells, a loud groaning sounds behind her.

She quickly turns around and sees the deceased corpse staggering down the hallway. All of the physical attributes that identifies a person, such as their hair and eye color, are nonexistent on the corpse; all that remains are shredded clothing and dead skin falling off as it moves.

“Damn it,” she says as she snaps her fingers. Each of her finger tips start glowing a bright blue. Shaping her fingers like a fake gun, she takes aim at the corpse, “Bang.”

As soon as she finished speaking, a flash of white lightning shoots out from her finger and hits the corpse straight in its head; it explodes upon contact.

When the corpse falls to the ground, the sorceress walks up to it and starts checking its pockets for anything useful. All she found was a wallet with a Photo I.D and a few cut out coupons. She throws it aside and kicks the corpse, “Nothing I can use.”

She looks back at the wall and can sense a strong energy coming from behind it, most likely originating from whatever is waiting behind it. She lets out a sigh and goes around the corner, “I’ll have to come back later. Maybe there’s a spell book lying around somewhere with a spell I can use to blow up this wall. Whatever is behind that wall… it must be something dangerous if it’s hidden like this.”

Tenchu: Shadows of Azuma – 8. Kunoichi by the Docks

In dire situations that require a slight chance of normality, one must often call for the help of others to bring back that usual lifestyle. In the case of ninjas, trust is a rare thing, sometimes ending in betrayal and one losing their life. However, if there is a past between allies, it would be natural for them to help one another.

“Do you know what kind of weapons are being transported?”

“I’m not too sure, but all I know is there’s a lot coming in. Just about enough to arm an entire army three times over.”

Tenchu: Shadows of Azuma – 7. Declaration of War

A group of ninja are closing in on Gohda territory. However, they are not alone. They are being lead by an assassin that only has two things set on her mind: fear and war. As Ayame tries to take a moment to relax along side Gohda’s daughter, Kiku, she ends up having to square off with that assassin after seeing an invasion unfold.

Dark clouds and an even darker assassin are a sign of something dangerous approaching. 

“So, you’re the one who killed all of them?”

“Caught red handed.”

Legends of the Dark: Hospital’s Creature Part 1

Nineteen year old Ayane Nagano goes to visit her hospitalized older brother for some time. After falling asleep for just a little bit, she wakes up in darkness and has to endure the horrors that waits. What lurks within the darkness?

That sounded like Satoru!”

Tenchu: Shadows of Azuma – 6. Battle in the Checkpoint

Passing through checkpoints are often used to help travelers reach their destinations faster, acting as shortcuts through dense forest areas. Should a checkpoint ever be under control of a specific entity, it would make traveling through much more dangerous. Rikimaru keeps this in mind as he heads towards his informant.

“I’m going to wage my war now.”

“All of Gohda’s forces are weak. Including the Azuma!”
