After our first trip to Japan back in 2014, Paradox and I have been looking forward to returning and checking out some new regions. While we certainly plan to travel with PacSet again, we wanted to try something a bit more set to our own pace this time. We stumbled upon Macs Adventure for a Wales walking tour, and then found they offered self-guided walking tours in Japan, so we decided to give them a spin for a trip that started in Tokyo, then moved to several days along the Nakasendo Trail, followed by Nara, a night in Buddhist temple lodgings on Mt. Koya, and finally wrapped up with Kyoto.
J-kun’s new home is perfect. It is bright, shining, pristine, and soon to be inhabited with his fiancee, A-ko. However, A-ko won’t be moving in alone. She will be bringing Yon, the accursed cat.
Kamala may have a broken heart, but that quickly becomes the least of her concerns when her family is targeted by the Inhumans–oh, and it’s also the end of the world.
Georgie’s big dream was coming true: Passing Time was finally going to be picked up. She’d been working on ideas for the show for nearly 20 years with her writing partner, and finally all of that work would pay off. However, all of that work was mostly still in their heads. Getting it into actual, modern scripts would take time, time that they weren’t given enough of, and time where she was supposed to go with her family to visiting her mother-in-law in Omaha.
Five individuals from different parts of the world and society find their destinies bound together after a hookah is stolen.
War is an ongoing part of life if you happen to be living during the Hundred Years’ War waged between France and England. No matter your way of life, the war will touch you and likely you pull you into battle. That is certainly the cases for witches who serve as magical mercenaries to help turn the tide in one way or another. However, one witch refuses to assist, and instead foils battle after battle in an attempt to restore peace to her region.
Eddie Mannix is a fixer, and at Capitol Pictures, there’s a lot that needs “fixing” to keep the latest pictures on track. Between unauthorized photo shoots, starlets in the family way, and trying to quit the cigarettes, Mannix’s hands are already full when one of Capitol’s biggest stars goes missing off the set one afternoon.
Aoi “Oi” Miyamori and her friends from high school promised one another that they would all get jobs in animation and one day work together again. However, dreams and reality often don’t quite match up as they soon learn as they all seek their own places in the animation production process.
Entering high school is a chance to cast off the past and at least plan to form a new identity. Sakamichi Onoda’s plan is to go from enjoying his anime and manga hobbies alone to making a group of friends to share his excitement with. Unfortunately his plans go pear-shaped when it turns out that his new high school’s Anime Research Club has been disbanded due to lack of interest. He holds out hope of recruiting the requisite five members to restart it, but it seems fate has a very different extracurricular in mind for him: the Bicycle Racing Club.
The White Base is worse for wear: it’s undermanned, in need of repairs, and morale isn’t exactly at it’s highest point. However, Jaburo is finally close to becoming a reality. At least it was until a new and more dangerous enemy enters the fray: Ramba Ral.
