It Begins Again!

Secret Society BLANKET, another dash of Yuru Camp greatness.  I love this show so much.  I don't think I've been this enamored with a new anime series since No Game No Life.

In fanfic news, writing has finally begun on "MNB: Requiem for Youth" Chapter 18.  Yes, actual progress.  Feels good.  I didn't come up with absolutely everything I was looking for during the planning phase, but I got enough of it.  Sometimes a chapter comes along where the best way to go about it is to just sit down, start typing, and let it flow, and if this isn't one of those chapters, I don't know what is.  I've got some major points I'll steer towards, but aside from those I'm just going to see where the flow takes me.  Should be very interesting.  I'll be working on this whenever I have the time, so keep an eye on the progress bar on the right side of the page to monitor how things are progressing.

On another random note, as I was looking through my "plan to watch" upcoming anime list, I realized five different shows on it are starting in April, including some new Major, new Steins Gate, and some other things.  As someone who's only been watching one or two shows at any given time for years now, this is a strange feeling.  Definitely a good thing, though.  More shows that I actually care about is very good.

Okay, that's all for now.  I'll be back when the first draft for the new chapter is done, or just to give a quick update if it ends up taking a while.  Thanks for reading, as always.  'Til next time.

Progress Update

I present to you the most relaxing show ever: Yuru Camp.  Words cannot describe how much I love it.  Rin, in particular, is an awesome character.  If you're looking for something chill and super cozy to watch, look it up.

Just wanted to pop in and leave an update for how the planning for the next "MNB: Requiem for Youth" chapter is going.  Over the last few weeks I've kinda been letting the puzzle pieces fall into place for this thing.  That's usually how it goes with me for the more complicated chapters, only in previous cases I'd been bouncing ideas around in my head for sometimes years in advance, which made it much easier.  In this instance, this is the first time I'm really approaching the material.  It's going well, though.  I feel like I've got a good idea of most of what I'm looking for.  I just need the last couple pieces of the puzzle, so to speak, and then I can put it all together.  I don't expect it'll be much longer before I'm able to start writing this thing.

So yeah, that's what's up right now.  I'll be back to let everyone know when the planning is officially done and the writing begins, most likely sooner rather than later.  Thanks for reading, as always.  'Til next time.
