Mahouka Dead Girl Forecast

Spoilers below the fold.  Short version, maybe one per half dozen girls.  For a total of maybe two, both adults. more...

European Hate-Speech About The American Breakfast

There are a number of serious errors in the image Denbeste has found.

Americans are all cookie cutter.  There is a place in Wichita that stamps out the molds. more...

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Stories

These are, as best as I am able to make them, literally true descriptions, and I have made some effort to keep any single one of them from being too spoilery.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Criteria

Grim and Gritty: Maybe, depends on the adaptation. I'm pretty sure the story is partly a bildungsroman, and that may be incompatible.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Introduction

The story takes place in 2095, and involves a boy (the irregular) and his younger but in the same year sister (the honors student) attending a magic highschool.

Nine magic highschools are funded by the government of Japan to provide vocational training and education to students, to help fill the strong demand for magic users.

The original material is apparently very dense with stories.  This may be enough that the genre could be very different depending on which ones are focused on.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Abstract

This spring a Mahouka anime is due out.

I'm anticipating wanting to say something about it when Denbeste mentions the spring anime forecasts.  As this may be too much to clutter his blog with, I am going to write something ahead of time, and post it here. 

This is not a recommendation of the anime, for two reasons.  One is that I cannot know what choices will be made in the adaptation.  The possible space covered by that uncertainty likely covers areas that both Denbeste and I would like and dislike.  The second reason is that tastes differ, and I have no confidence that I can describe things well enough to clarify matter for anyone, much less Steven.

I am well aware that some of what I might enjoy is well outside of Steven's interest.

Currently, I've vague notions of writing an introduction, a list of criteria with possibilities for pluses and minuses, and maybe a listing of the different stories that can be told.

Amazon Legion: Snippet One

This website was created for two reasons.  One, so as to be a fan site for Tom Kratman's works.  Two, so that I could comment on Denbeste's blog.  Purpose one ended up falling through for various reasons..

I quote some of what Tom posted on the Bar to introduce this.

'So if you own a blog, or website, or know someone who does, get it posted there, too, or get them to post it.  If I find a very large number of such - and, yes, of-fracking-_course_, I will look - I'll put up another 3-4 chapters.  If not, not.'

Lessons Learn, Part 2

1. There is a trivial way to recreate the banner file with different settings.

2. When logged on, go to the help link and use the messages there to report bugs. 

3. I should probably figure out categories next.

4. I am not really sure what types of markup code I should use where.

Lessons Learned

1. Using the built in software of this site to send a message to a username seems to spam that user if that user has more then one blog.

2. Building on this, I've probably missed the appropriate method to send in reports of suspected bugs.

3. If I haven't angered our host, I should mention something else I found when I figure out the appropriate feedback mechanism.

4. I should probably quit and think for now, before I break something.

5. I need to use html, or one of the other things in order to get things formatted right.
