“Are you sure this is where you sensed the dark energy?” Cure Fortune asked as she turned to Glassan, her expression as serious as always. She and the other members of the Happiness Charge Precure were simply having a fun day at the beach when their fairies sensed a foreboding dark power. Naturally, the girls had to transform and investigate— just in case it was a new enemy.
“Yep! There’s no doubt about it— this is the place!” Glassan confirmed, folding her arms confidently.
“It just looks like a normal set of rocks to me…” Cure Swan spoke up. She seemed nervous, as if she was expecting a trap to be sprung any moment to ensnare the five heroines. Then again, she did tend to overthink things.
“That’s totally what the enemy wants us to think, Swan! They want us to be lured into a false sense of security by making us think they’re just a pile of rocks until… BAM! We’re caught in yet another plot to destroy the world!” Cure Princess exclaimed, speaking in such a way that spooked Swan. She squeaked, jumping back. “But I’m sure everything will be fine! We’re the Happiness Charge Precure, after all!”
“Y-yeah…” Cure Swan nodded and smiled slightly. Meanwhile, Phanphan came to rest on Cure Honey’s shoulder, his tiny fairy body shaking.
“I don’t like the feeling I get from this place…” He muttered softly. Honey smiled and gave her fairy partner a reassuring pat; Phanphan seemed to calm down slightly after that. “Please… be careful…”
“Of course we will! If we need to, we’ll just beat up the bad guys and then resume our day at the beach!” Cure Lovely declared with her usual confidence. “We’ll make them regret interrupting us!”

Danganronpa Deadication Character theories and predictions.
So, today I bring something a little different to the table. Recently, I’ve been scouting the internet for Danganronpa Fan-Projects, because I need to re-juice on my Fanganronpa thirst. However, during my quest, I came back to a series that I’d known about for a short while now, but never really gave any credit. Danganronpa Deadication is a really promising web series that I hope to god gets a really good final product, since the overall aesthetic of it, character design, environments, setup, all of it is really pleasing to look at. If you want more information on the story, then check out their Tumblr @dangandeadication or their YouTube channel where the story is originating from. So far, the prologue is fully completed and you can go watch in on either, and Chapter 1 has been confirmed to be in development right now.
After watching a video by Weeby Newz where she made theories and predictions about another fangame Kill/Cure, I decided to do something similar with this game. I will re-iterate that none of the artwork in this post belongs to me, and you can find it on the Tumblr Page that I just mentioned. On top of that, I will also remind you that this is a prediction. If any of my thoughts or ideas end up being right, it’s purely coincidental. Shout out to all the people working on this project, you are amazing, and I fully support your creation.
The first character I want to talk about is Naohiko Hayata, who seems to be the protagonist of this game. He’s the Ultimate Actor, and he’s pretty unique. As much as I love Makoto Naegi, Hajime Hinata and Shuichi Saihara respectively, most of them seem to lack in pretty outstanding personalities, as they’re designed to be relatable characters to the player, something they all succeed at. Naohiko doesn’t share that trait. He has a pretty snarky and overconfident personality that isn’t like protagonists in any other Danganronpa game I’ve seen so far. His description states:
Naohiko is a skilled actor and self assured person. He might come off as slightly overconfident, but he has good intentions and wants the best for everyone. Naohiko is determined to put an end to the killing game, but will he succeed, or will he fall into despair?
He likes Sunsets and he dislikes cloudy days and unkempt hair.
Now, something about that description makes me a little suspicious. It states that he’s determined to put an end to the killing game, which makes me wonder what lengths he’ll go to in order to do so. The last time a character acted this way, it was Kaede, and she ended up losing her life for it. I’ll say this flat out now, I’m not expecting Naohiko to survive this game. I’m really expecting the game to pull a Kaede on us and have him die in the first chapter, either by being the killer, or a victim. Now, if he was the killer, it’d make more sense, but if the game was to throw us through a loop, I’d really like it if we actually get to witness Naohiko be murdered himself in the first chapter, and for the trial we play as a different character than what we expected. If he does die, then I’m predicting the new protagonist would be either Reika (because she has an ahoge herself) or Yuuma (because he’s the Ultimate Lucky Student) but for now, I’m going to label him as a killer.
The next character to bring up is Hitomi Akimura, the Ultimate Illusionist. Now, I know I already said Naohiko gave me Kaede vibes, simply due to his description, but Hitomi is almost the exact same, saying pretty much the same things as Kaede did in V3, assuring everyone they could escape if they all worked together. At first, I thought maybe this could be like Sayaka, where she goes through an arc and then ends up being the first victim, but I have a bit of a different theory. As for her description, it states the following:
Hitomi is always upbeat and optimistic. She tries to put a smile on everyone’s faces, earning her the title of the most lovable friend, and she’s the glue that holds the group together. If everyone’s happy, she’s happy.
She likes Red Roses and she dislikes Solitude.
Hitomi to me seems like she’s the Chiaki/Kaede of this game, trying to stop the group from being split up or arguing, but I feel that her arc could go in a similar direction. Like I said, I don’t know if she’ll make it to the end, and like I said with Naohiko, I think she’s going to end up being a killer, but for a really good cause. I originally thought she could be the mastermind behind the killing game, but I really am not sure. For now, I’ve marked her as a killer.
Next is Kyusho Asagiri, AKA Kyoko Kirigiri’s genderswap. No like, literally, he looks just like her AND they’re both Ultimate Detectives. His description reads:
Calm and sophisticated, Kyusho enjoys solving mysteries. He keeps his cool no matter what the situation is, and when he’s working on the scene, nothing can take his focus away. But it does get a little unsettling when he smiles, like he knows all of your secrets...
He likes Green Tea and dislikes Flashy People.
At first, my general theories on Kyusho’s character is that he’d be something similar to Tsurugi Kinjo from the Another series. He’s a virtuous police officer on the side of good, but he has a hidden dark side to him. The part of his description where it says “it does get a little unsettling when he smiles, like he knows all of your secrets...” Is a little suspicious. My original prediction was that he was going to be an early victim, killed off because of fear at how useful his talent would be in the Class Trials, and then that theory switched into being a killer himself, but then my final theory was the most crazy of all. I predict that Kyusho will be the mastermind behind the killing game, or at least he’d be part of the organisation behind it, and be a participant himself due to his enjoyment of solving mysteries. However, Kyusho is the character for me who is most in the grey area. I don’t know whether he’ll be a victim, a killer, a survivor or the mastermind.
This character is probably one of the characters that I’m the most interested in, Reika Komatsu, this games version of the Ultimate ??? character, that Kyoko, Hajime and Rantaro all did in the original game.
Reika neither knows her talent, nor does she really care. She might come off as emotionless, but she’s usually just tired and never has anything to say. With her monotonous voice, it’s hard to keep up any conversation.
She likes sleep and dislikes long conversations.
I’m already dead set on the idea that Reika will be the “antagonistic character” of this series. More specifically, I expect her to fill the same role that Nagito Komaeda and Kokichi Ouma did in their respective games. The reason I think this is because in one of the first videos of the series, more specifically the first trailer, it shows a clip of the cutscene before the Mass Panic Debate, with her, Kyusho and Shu, the latter two claiming they’re not the killer. However, Reika states that she might possibly be the killer, which immediately makes me think that she’ll try and derail the conversations. I feel her reasons, judging by her character description, is that she derails the conversation to trick people into suspecting her, just so she can get the debate over and done with quickly enough. Because of these similarities, I predict that Reika will be a Chapter 5 victim too, and like Nagito and Kokichi, she’d have a heavy role to play in her own murder scheme.
Next up is Yuuma Hisashi, the Ultimate Lucky Student, and the character, like I already mentioned, that I think will secretly be the real hero of the story. I see him being more a Makoto or Yuki Maeda lucky student than a Nagito one.
Although Yuuma thinks his talent isn’t a very good one, he’s a friendly guy who just likes joking around and having a good time with everyone. Ironically, he thinks he has the worst luck. After all, he did get trapped in a killing game...
He likes Ramen and really bad puns, and dislikes his own talent.
Even though he claims to dislike his talent, I think it’ll come through for him on more than one occasion. While I do think it’s likely he’d be an easy target or even a surprising murderer, I’m pretty certain that he will end up escaping the killing game with his life, at least I hope so. Alternatively, if I’m wrong about Naohiko and he ends up making it to the end, I would very much enjoy it if they did something similar to what they did in the final trial of V3, and have us switch to Yuuma’s perspective like we did with Keebo. I’m sorry that that’s all I can really say, but Yuuma is one of the characters who I’m probably the least interested in as of right now. But in short, I think he’ll be a survivor.
Next is Megumi Norikawa, the strict and assertive Ultimate Attorney, who to me seems like a weird, but well made blend of Kiyotaka, Mahiru and Kirumi. Her description is as followed:
Megumi takes pride in her talent. She’s always assertive and blunt...to the point where you might start crying if she glares at you. She means well though, she just has high expectations of everyone. It’s all good so long as you don’t get on her bad side.
She likes Coffee and Taking Charge and dislikes Unpunctual People.
I have pretty high expectations for Megumi, since she seems quite prominent on the series original promo art, but at the same time, it could be a fake out. She seems to share traits with the Ultimate Imposter too, which makes me believe she could also be an early victim. However, I would also love it if she could have the arc that Taka had that was cut short by his death, so while I don’t really have an awful strong opinion of her yet, like I did with Taka really early on, I’m predicting, and hoping, that she will be a survivor.
Next is Iori Karanomori, a fun loving Ultimate Gardener, and one of the characters that I instantly took a shine to. My theories surrounding him are...unfortunate ones, but his description says:
Iori is a bundle of energy who loves gardening. A walking encyclopedia on plants, he’s always jumping with excitement whenever he talks about them. Well, it’s more accurate to say that he’s jumping with excitement all the time. It’s impossible to try and calm him down.
He likes Obscure Plant Facts and dislikes Deforestation.
Despite how much I’m already into this guy, though admittedly when I first saw him, I couldn’t work out what his actual gender was, I know for a fact that the type of character that he is doesn’t tend to live that long in these types of games, if at all. This is particularly evident with characters like Sayaka, Ibuki, Angie and others. I think Iori is going to be a victim and an early one at that. In fact, if Kyusho doesn’t die in the first chapter after being killed, then I see the first victim being either him, or Luna. I really doubt he’ll live to the end, and if he does, I hope to god he doesn’t end up being a Yasuhiro of the game.
Next character that I’m gonna talk about is Sakumi Mifune, the Ultimate Alchemist. There isn’t really much that I can gleam from a character like her, she genuinely seems pretty nice, but also seems like someone who would snap and break down under pressure. However, due to how she’s described in her profile, I don’t think she’d be a killer.
Sakumi has a big heart and is a caring person, although it might not look like that at first because of how unresponsive she can be. She’s a bit ditsy and oblivious, zoning out from time to time and getting lost in her own world. It’s also hard to follow her when she tries to explain her own talent.
She likes Shiny Things and dislikes Seafood.
If what the description says is to be believed, then I have a really hard time picturing someone like her being a killer, unless they pull some Mikan bullshit out on us. However, I also have a hard time seeing her survive to the end of the killing game, so I predict that she may get to at least Chapter 3 before she’s murdered in some dumb double-homicide scheme. Yeah, I think she’ll end up being a victim unfortunately.
If I had to say who my least favorite character from what I know so far is, it’d probably be the Ultimate Filmmaker, Toru Mizuno. He doesn’t seem all that friendly, and he outright ignores Hitomi when she tries to talk to him, because he’s so interested in Naohiko. This is how he’s described by the creators:
Toru is a highly opinionated and critical person, and he likes to bring his own perspective on every issue. He gets irritated and dramatic when the others don’t agree with him. He insists that he isn’t condescending and that he doesn’t have a big ego.
He likes Indie Films and dislikes CGI animation.
He, to me, seems like he could potentially be the character that survives that you don’t want to, but I have something else in mind for him. I assume that maybe he could do something similar to what Sayaka and Miu did in their games. What I mean is, I think he’d end up being a victim, but because he tried to commit his own murder and tragically failed, leaving his target or someone else, to effectively turn the tables on him in a panic. I don’t know, I’m just going with my gut for this one.
Ayane Fukase is the Ultimate Psychic, and she’s another character that I feel a little indifferent towards. I don’t dislike her at all, but I most certainly don’t feel a unique fondness to her like I do to a large selection of the characters in this series. I do have a bit of a theory surrounding what she could do in the killing game, but before I get into that, here’s her description:
Ayuna is cheeky and outgoing and she says she can predict anything with her talent. If you actually ask her to predict something, the stars are out of alignment, her vision is too foggy, or the atmosphere is too unclear to focus...whatever excuse you can think of.
She likes Desserts and dislikes Spicy Food.
I feel a scenario that she would play into is in the Case 3 murder, where maybe she has a prediction of who dies, who kills them, and where, and she tries to go and stop it, but then ends up getting killed in an attempt to stop the murder. So like I said with Sakumi, I think she’d end up being a victim in a case 3 double murder plan.
Next is Shu Uchida, a man who prides himself on his title of Ultimate Bounty Hunter, as well as his supposed body count. He’s egotsistical, rude, sharp-tongued and every sort of negative attitude you can think of, but he’s also one of the characters that I’m really really into as of right now, since I have pretty high hopes for him.
From Shu’s talent alone, everyone’s on edge with a paid killer around. Although, after talking to him, he’s all bark and no bite. He assures he’s not a threat...only because none of them are worth his time.
He likes Himself and dislikes Unimportant People.
I don’t know what direction the creators of the series plan to go in with Shu, but I’m really hoping they do something similar to what Danganronpa 2 did with Fuyuhiko. He starts off with a cold, snide sense of superiority, as well as an angry, brash desire to just be left alone, but eventually, due to unfortunate events in the killing game that negatively affect him, his cold heart begins to thaw and he ends up being a much more useful aspect to the group as a whole. If this does end up being his character arc basis, then I really expect him to be a survivor, and that’s my theory on him.
Haru Yoshino is the Ultimate Occultist and she’s...strange. I’ll let the description speak for itself, because I really don’t have much to say about her.
Sassy and sarcastic, Haru isn’t the easiest person to get along with. They like following around random people and sometimes making funny (and sometimes ominous) remarks to mess with them. They also claim to be able to summon demons and try and convince others to join then in dangerous anf questionable rituals.
She likes Black Jewelry and dislikes Owls
Haru is another character who’s in the grey area for me. I see her being a victim, and maybe a killer. If she ends up being a killer, I feel it would be a bit obvious, based purely on what her character describes, but of all the roles she could fill, I think being a killer is the least likely one, judging from her overall character traits. If I had to lean towards a specific role, I think she has the potential to be one of the survivors of the killing game.
Keiji Iketsugi, this series’ adaptation of the Ultimate Surgeon, is a little bit of a stern, and rather creepy character. Necrophiliac is far from the correct term to describe him, but his...how do I best describe this...addiction, to dead bodies, is not something that can easily be ignored.
Due to his talent, Keiji is very skilled with scalpels, syringes, needles and other sharp objects...which can make other people uncomfortable. His demeanor is always calm, but calculating, and he is always looking forward to expanding his knowledge of biology through his own examinations of subjects...
He likes Human Anatomy and dislikes Lack of Hygiene
If there’s one small message that Danganronpa has taught me amongst others of course, it’s that sometimes a book CAN be judged by it’s cover. Sometimes characters who look like they could kill someone actually do end up killing someone. The best examples I can think of are Peko Pekoyama and Korekiyo Shinguji. I imagine a good backstory for Keiji is a sort of Jack the Ripper esc backstory, where it turns out he murdered people and stole their organs or body parts in order to research them or something else. Alternatively, what could be more interesting is if he stole the organs of horrid people and used them to save other people in transplants, kind of like Good Doctor Locklear. My point is, I think he could be a killer, and I’m leaning more towards that than I am any other role for him.
I do like Otoha Okada quite a bit, but unfortunately her talent is Ultimate Basketball Player, AKA a sports talent. If you have a talent related to some kind of sport, then you tend not to survive that long in the killing game. The only characters that have a sports talent and have ever survived in a killing game are Aoi Asahina and Akane Owari. Characters like Leon, Nekomaru and Ryoma unfortunately aren’t as lucky. Before I explain how I think Otoha might go out though, here’s her description.
Otoha is pretty upbeat and active. She enjoys working out and encouraging others to do the same thing. She can get a bit too competitive at times, but it’s because she likes challenging herself. If Otoha is cooped up in one place for too long, she tends to get very irritable.
She likes Excersising and dislikes Sleeping in.
I’m just gonna come out and say that I think she’ll end up being a killer, but I don’t see her having any malicious intent. Her bio states that she gets irritable if she’s cooped up in a place for too long, and I think that attitude might cause her to snap and kill someone to escape, but I feel like it would make more sense if her reason was because she killed someone on accident, or committed a murder to save someone’s life.
Second to last is Minoru Shinoya. He is the Ultimate Barista, and he’s the only other character who, like Kyusho and Haru, who sits in the grey area for me as to what he could potentially be. His description is as followed:
At first glace, Minoru seems like a cool, laid-back person, but he’s actually someone who enjoys cracking jokes around. He likes brewing coffee and hinting about his “secret ingredients” but despite his often reckless nature, he is also mature enough to keep a straight face in serious situations.
He likes Baking and dislikes Decaffeinated Coffee.
Like I said, he’s in the grey area, and I imagine that most people would probably lean more towards him being a survivor or a victim, but as weird as it sounds, I’m predicting him to be a killer. I can explain why though. I imagine that his case can go one of two ways. The first is, like I already mentioned, I predict Toru will plan a murder of his own and fail it, as his target turns against him, and I also feel like that target could be Minoru. Minoru is pretty chill, so I don’t see him committing a murder willingly unless he acted in self-defence. An alternative scenario is that he pulls a Sakura and commits suicide due to a helpless situation, which would make him the killer and the victim at the same time. He seems alright though, so if he survived, I would be totally fine with that.
Last of all is Luna Tsuyuki, also known as the Ultimate Arctic Explorer, and the character who has possibly my favorite design out of everyone in this repertoire of Ultimate Students. Seriously, she’s a great mix of cute and elegance and she’s got a pretty friendly and nice personality to go along with it.
Luna seems sweet and kind on the outside, but don’t let that fool you. Because of her talent, she’s pretty tough and has incredible survival instincts. She instantly thinks of twelve backup plans in any mildly dangerous situation.
Now, based on this description, it sounds like she knows what she’s doing, and I see her being very helpful in the class trials. If Luna managed to survive to the end of the game, I’d be both happy, and very unsurprised. Unfortunately, her aptitude in these types of situations could make her a target, as to eliminate one of the most deadly aspects against you in the trial. Basically, I see Luna being a victim, and that’s all I can really say.
And that’s all the characters, so before I end this post, I’ll do a brief recap of everything I’ve said about these characters and what role I predict they’ll play.
I predict that Iori, Luna, Sakumi, Ayane, Toru and Reika will be the victims.
I predict that Naohiko, Otoha, Keiji, Minoru and Hitomi will be the killers
I predict Shu, Megumi, Haru and Yuuma will be the survivors
I predict Kyusho will be the Mastermind.
Once again, I really hope you will go and support this project, because I can’t wait for Chapter 1 to be fully released. However, please, don’t pressure the creators of this series to hurry up. They have lives, just like you and I, and they don’t want to spend every minute of it working on this project. However, I’m really into this project in particular, just as much as I’m into fan projects like Kill/Cure and more. I look forward to seeing what the team works on and I’d like them to know they have my full support!

Don't you dislike the idea of Suzume & Megumi fighting over Kiyo? I rather see them be friends rather than hating each other! It breaks my old heart to see a fan lost respect against her idol.
I think Suzume forgot about her beef with Megumi in the manga because the beef was never brought up again after the “searching for the gift” chapter.
In a personal headcanon of mine, Suzume and Megumi apologized to each other and exchanged phone numbers so they can stay in contact despite having feelings for the same boy.

September 13th: JN037 - I'm Back! Nice to See You, Alola!
Satoshi and Go have come to Melemele Island in the Alola region to get an "Alola Form" Nassy! Satoshi goes around reuniting with Professor Kukui, the students from the Pokémon School he used to attend, as well as his Pokémon. But since this is Go's first time meeting them all, he's a bit nervous, and during the welcoming party that's held for the two at the Pokémon School, Satoshi's classmate Kaki challenges him to a battle, saying he'll "make sure this guy is a fitting rival for Satoshi"! Go decides to accept the challenge!!

Satoshi and Go are attending the "Great Fossil Pokémon Exhibit" being held at the Museum of Science in Nibi City, and Go's childhood friend Koharu has come with them since this can be of help with her research project. The three of them decided to join a "Fossil Digging Activity" overflowing with romanticism, where they'll be able to restore fossils to living Pokémon if they find some that are in good condition. Go searches like a madman since he really wants to get a fossil Pokémon, but what he ends up finding is a bit of "Secret amber" that has some Pokémon DNA contained in it.

Saito accepts his challenge and the battle starts, with Go and Tanba Gym's Gym Leader Shijima watching. Satoshi and Riolu are burning with a desire to win this rematch, and attempt a certain counterstrategy against Otosupus' "Octolock", which is what defeated them last time. How will this match go?!

Character Name: Rebecca Ayumi Fukunaga
Occupation: Merrick Art Museum Curator
Age & DOB: 29, november 15th
Sexuality, Gender & Pronouns: Bisexual, Cisfemale, she/her
Neighborhood: Merrick Village
How long they’ve been in Monleon: off and on her whole life - returned last year to stay
Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan
Faceclaim: Sonoya Mizuno
intro + etc below the cut !! and will be reaching out to message everyone today (sorry about the delay eeeep but yay weekend)
Quick facts + wanted connections
Born to an American mother (half argentinan herself) and a Japanese father, she was primarily raised in Japan, with summers spent in Monleon
Art Curator -- she’s best when she can talk about art, her dearest love
Back to spend time with her namesake, her ailing grandmother, and to decide which citizenship she’d like to keep
Sort of the moody, artsy gay who has a cool exterior, but warmth if you’re willing to stick around
Connections : childhood ties/friends, fellow art lovers/patrons of the museum, anyone who lived in NYC about 9 years ago, would have met her when she was there for school!
BIOGRAPHY. TW. cancer
Rebecca has always existed in two distinctly different worlds - the warmth and all-Amrican ease of her mother’s native Florida, and the sleek, towering Tokyo skyline, where tradition moves in harmony with modernism. Her mother, Catherine, traveled to Japan as an adventurous youth, seeking to teach English to Japanese children. Blonde, foreign and chipper, Hideo Fukunaga drifted to her at the bar - a whirlwind romance, and a slightly controversial marriage, followed suit. Catherine and Hideo’s families could not understand either’s choice in partner (though both would warm, once grand children were born). Catherine, though terribly attached to her Merrick Village, agreed to reside in Tokyo; whilst Hideo loved his American bride, he would have Japanese children. Rebecca was born to great love, and bestowed her American-mantle of Rebecca in honor of her grandmother, who continues to waver between adoration of her grandchildren, and confusion over their existence. Rebecca has spent a majority of her life in Japan, spending summers and the occasional school term in her mother’s native Florida.
. The youngest of three - the first, her brother, left for America early, while her sister Megumi mainly rejected the West to remain in Japan. Her sister preferred to be Japanese- a difficulty, given their obvious biracial status. The kids were not entirely ostracised, attending an international school with a variety of students, but always suffered a degree of separation from peers and classmates. Rebecca distinguished herself at an early age for being two things: too emotional for her own good, and incredibly artistic.Rebecca grew up to symbolize the two worlds that had produced her - as her Japanese grandmother often said “Western name, Japanese face”. She learned how to play into the side of herself that was most palpable for who she was with - an all-American girl as best as she could, when back in Florida- and vice versa, in the company of Japanese.
Their older brother was always distant, but Rebecca and her sister share an unparalleled bond - their personalities perfectly compliment one another, and because there are few who understand the feeling of never truly belonging, no matter where you are. While Rebecca has always been reserved and traditional, her sister was bubbly, exhaustingly social and setting out from an early age, to have a family and children.
Rebecca excelled in school, finding herself most drawn to art and history. After finishing highschool, Rebecca came to the States for schooling, majoring in Art History at Barnard. She’d never lived in America for so long, or in a city so unlike her mother’s Florida town. For the first time, Rebecca found herself incredibly attracted to American life, even finding an All-American boyfriend to call her own. But she graduated, the boy she was with couldn’t bring her home to his white family, and American life became an improbable dream once more. She left for Europe, seeking her masters amongst the cobbled streets and of Paris.
Rebecca came back to Japan, home sick and eager to immerse herself in the old life she'd abandoned . She settled into adulthood easily, drifting to work at a museum, collecting friends and lovers. Life marched on, unexceptional, but pleasant, nonetheless. It was her namesake reaching out, which shook Rebecca from her coasting - pancreatic cancer, with a prognosis of two years (at best) left. Rebecca wanted her grandchildren to come home, if only for a little while, before she passed away. Rebecca’s brother remained distant in his California life, and her sister now married, feigned ignorance to any American relations.She hadn't spent much time in Monleon since the summer before her senior year of highschool; her connections are sparse and feelings are still complicated by the scars of childhood memories. But filial piety and duty is ingrained in her core - whilst they do not share many features, beyond the curve of their ears and a name, Rebecca cannot deny the request to be by her grandmother’s side.
Boxes and suitcases still litter Rebecca’s new home - down the street from her ailing grandmother, who insists on independence but closeness - as she attempts to integrate into her new life. She drifts between delight in spending days by the water, bike riding on streets that feel like home, and sickness for Japan, where she knows her place, and the streets of Tokyo, like the back of her hand. The Merrick Art Museum happily hired Rebecca as it’s Chief curator - allotting her a position that allows her proximity to her truest love, art.
If Rebecca is deemed aloof, it is due to shyness - she’s always been deemed too sensitive, but it is the depth of her empathy, that led her back here. She maintains Japanese and American citizenship through a loophole, involving applying for your Japanese passport when you’re nineteen. But in two years, Rebecca will have to pick a passport - per Japanese law, you are either Japanese, or you forfeit your citizenship. Part of why she’s drifted back to the States, is to decide if American is worth her walk away from the place she’s treasured as home.

~New Characters in Vena Cava~
Preston Cole: The husband to be for Evelyn Edwards. Aija has known Preston most of her life and already sees him as an uncle figure. He’s the quiet type but an observer.
Roxanne Edwards-Johnson: Derrick’s older sister and Aija’s aunt. She’s headstrong and knows what she wants out of her life. If somebody gets in her way she doesn’t mind using her kickboxing training on them. Also the mother of Kai (a character in my Hawaiian Sunrise story)
Ikura Fue: Hikaru’s calm and loyal housekeeper who grows to be Aija’s lead manager for Dior Chanel in Japan. Fue was struggling to survive for her family until Aija graciously and happily gave her a second chance.
Shizuru Mizuki: A woman from Hikaru’s past love life and the closest before Aija to be in a relationship with him. She’s also one of the antagonists of the story.
Mizuno Hikari: Hikaru’s paternal grandmother. Hikari is a stern yet realistic minded woman who is the result of how Ryutaro is as a person. 5.2: Mizuno Megumi: Hikaru’s aunt and Ryutaro’s sister. Unlike Ryu, Megumi is a sweet minded fashion designer who is picked on by Ryu for not being as successful as he is.
Dr. Lyric Young: The newest doctor for pediatrics at the Mizuno Medical Clinic. Aija takes a liking to Lyric because like she, Lyric has been adopted.
Steven Asher: One part of the Ashers, the new neighbors next to Aija and Hikaru. Though not as close as Andrew, Steven becomes a good friend to Hikaru, talking to him about married life as needed. Usually has to keep a eye on his wife’s nosiness.
Marylou Asher: The second part of the Ashers. Even though Steven is closer to Hikaru, Marylou isn’t as close to Aija but they do hang out from time to time. She’s known for being nosy and pushing boundaries.
Genevieve Edwards: Derrick’s youngest sister and Aija’s wedding coordinator. She’s very sweet but all about work which makes sense since she’s an award winning wedding planner.
Dr. Cherie Hudson: Aija’s new no-nonsense OB/GYN who gives Aija life advice as well as health advice.

So seems SMC & Food wars is most wanted so i will be making Icon sets for those two series this fall! expect them between mid Oct & the end of Dec. as well as a few other series that weren’t on the list.
Also seems Go Princess was the most wanted precure series, so that’ll be the next completed precure series I icon as well! unsure when but that’ll be next.
As stated on the post, i will not be taking character requests or suggestions concerning these two series. I already know who else I want to icon from these series. under the cut will roughly be all who i am iconing from both.
and a lot more.
Ami Mizuno (arc 1-3)
Chibi-usa Tsukino (arc 2-3)
Koan / Catzy (arc 2)
Makoto Kino (arc 1-3)
Minako Aino (arc 1-3)
Rei Hino (arc 1-3)
Sailor Moon* (arc 1-2)
Setsuna Meiou (arc 2-3)
possibly more characters we’ll see
*I included her here despite having a pack for usagi tsukino because i did not icon much to anything of her transformed into ‘sailor moon’. so her pack will be updating with icons of her transformed. also after these are finished, her packs will be separated into three posts. this goes the same for other packs like michiru’s & hotarus. I am going to separate the sailor moon icon packs by 90s anime, smc 1-2 & smc 3. and later on smc 4 when those movies are available online.

Liesel’s Sinful Corner:
When I first saw the guys in their regular clothing I was like “Excuse you, but why do all the guys look so thick????” 👀👀👀 I felt personally attacked because OMG they didn’t look THAT thick to me in the images I saw from the manga, but who was I to complain. I’d still take them all because they’re yummy af. Then the images in their work attire were posted and I almost got a heart attack like HOT DAYUM. 🤤
Izumi is currently looking for a gf? Umm, hello! I’d like to sign up! 😘 Actually, can I take them all? Thank you.
I hope I’m not wrong, but there seems to be a girl for each guy and I think that’s really cool! 😁 It seems that Jun & Ayako are anime-only characters.
A few days ago, I shared some screenshots with 4 of the guys: Soma, Izumi, Miike & Kawamura. It seems that Miike and Kawamura won’t be coming out in the anime and I’M SAD. I guess they’re introduced in the later chapters that won’t be covered in the anime or something (idk I haven’t read it). 😢

An uplifting friendship (Drabble)
When one is four and a quarter feet tall, things like parades are rarely enjoyable. There’s too many people directly ahead and no way to push through. But Tsubasa Mizuno is determined to see this one. After all, there’s a float here that was made by Hime and Megumi. She didn’t get a chance to see the float as it was being built. The other girls wanted it to be a surprise.
Tsubasa first tries standing in the window of a restaurant, but the owner tells her to get down so she doesn’t hurt herself. Then she tries to get up into the bleachers they set up for the event. It’s no good. The front row seats are all taken, and the seats at the very top have only a small chain to serve as back support. For the taller people, that wouldn’t be a problem. But for Tsubasa, if she leaned too far back... she shakes her head, not wanting to think about that.
Maybe the lamppost? No, other people had that idea already. Tsubasa begins to worry. The music is starting and the parade is moving. How many floats have to pass before she sees her friends? She doesn’t know.
Just as she’s about to cry, a large shadow looms over her. “Hey, Tsubasa!”
Tsubasa turns and looks up, but she doesn’t have to. That voice belongs to her friend, Aya!
“Aya!” Tsubasa is so happy to see her. Maybe Aya can take pictures of the parade so she won’t have to miss it.
But before she can suggest that, the big bear of a woman kneels down. “Hey, you want a better vantage point? I can put you on my shoulders if you want.”
That’s better than Tsubasa could have expected. “Oh, thank you, Aya. Are you sure it’s not too much trouble?”
“Hey, you lifted my spirits that one time with the wedding dress. What kind of friend would I be if I didn’t lift you the same way?” Aya holds out her hands to Tsubasa. who gladly moves into position.
For Tsubasa, being picked up by Aya is like rising in a tall elevator. Aya parks Tsubasa on one shoulder and uses her hand to steady her small friend. And just in time!
The very first float to cross down the street is the one Hime and Megumi worked on. And there, in papier-mache are the Happiness Charge Pretty Cure, including the unmistakable form of Cure Swan. The five models of the Precure seem to be in a battle stance, facing off against a large red planet hanging from the top of the float.
Tsubasa smiles and blushes, then feels Aya’s other hand handing her something. Aya’s offering her a large helping of cotton candy to enjoy from her higher vantage point.
As the float pass through the street, Tsubasa catches Megumi’s eye, and Megumi points her out to Hime. Even over the noise, it’s clear from Hime’s lips that she’s saying “She got the best seat in the house.”
Aya stays in that position until the very last band has crossed through the street, then sets Tsubasa down gently and rolls her arm to get the sensation back in it. A few pins and needles are a cost she’ll gladly pay for the smile on Tsubasa’s face.
“Um, Aya...Would you like to meet my other friends? I’m sure they’d be happy to meet you.”
“I’d love that, Tsubasa. Lead the way.”
Tsubasa is about to do that, when she realizes there’s still a throng of people packing the streets. She looks from the people to Aya as if trying to figure out which way to go.
Aya smiles and hearkens back to a particular movie starring a giant. She cups her hands over her mouth. “EVERYBODY MOVE!”
The crowd parts down the middle, letting Tsubasa lead Aya up to the embassy grounds.
