Disclaimer: I do not own any of the anime listed in this crossover fic. I'd list them, but that'd take all the fun outta spotting them out. Please review this story! I only got one review for my other story, "InuYasha's Nightmare".
What exactly attracts you?
Is it the appearance or something more mysterious?
One minute I'm staring into the tube
The next I'm floating in space
As if hypnotized, I go to explore the place
As I float around, a number of planets appear
I land upon one that looks like Earth's moon
There is scenery, like that in a fairy tale
On a palace balcony, there is a beautiful princess
Captivated by the atmosphere, I stay and watch her for some time
Discovering she is not what she seems
The princess is a warrior
Fighting against the Dark Kingdom to protect not only the moon
But the Earth as well
Her comrades from the other ten planets aid her in the enemy's defeat
After viewing her battles and adventures many times, I depart into space
As I venture
My eye sees something unfamiliar
Space, the stars, the planets, even myself
Animated, how strange and yet appeasing to the eye
As I drift through space, trying to find Earth
I witness fleets of giant robots
Five robots flying in a group, the leader flying with white wings
Another group of five passes, but these composed of robotic lions
With a tight theme song to match!
Not only do I see these machines,
But I see landforms resembling countries on Earth floating about in space
With more of the strange human-shaped giant robots fighting to rule them
Scratching my head, I stare in confusion
Wondering where in Sam Hill I am
I come across more planets as I venture further
And for some reason, perhaps curiosity, I check them out individually
Discovering a lot of them are different variations of the Earth
Not only that, but each is a variation of Earth with strange inhabitants
One I entered seemed to be a world of cuteness (yes, I know that's not a word!)
I label it so, as I saw a cute white kitty with a bow in her ear
Playing hide and seek with a band of even cuter little hamsters
Being a sucker for anything cute, I can't help but take photographs of them
I continue my journey afterwards
World after world I inspect
It seemed I was inside Super Mario Bros., but I found this odyssey very entertaining
I witnessed all kinds of odd characters
On one planet, there was a trainer with his pocket monsters dueling against a reincarnated pharaoh
Forgive me if I sound rude
The pharaoh wore a cool leather outfit,
But his hairstyle was more peculiar than that of the moon princess!
Two more planets, these with the setting of past eras of Japan
A half-demon and a human searching for the scattered shards of a mystic jewel in Feudal Japan
And a wandering samurai of the Meiji era
This far out trip of mine grew more baffling
As it pursued in defying comprehension!
I keep going, in hopes of finding the planet that belongs to me
There is a long passage in space
It appears as though the journey has concluded, seeing there is an absence of planets
Seeing nothing but spotted black
I think myself lost and wonder where to go
To my far left, an enormous galactic ship
Paying no regard to the ominous sign of the skull and crossbones on its side,
I ask directions to the nearest planet from the crew of the ship, Arcadia
Their one-eyed captain appears and points me in the right direction
I follow the directions and on my far right, a rainbow stretching across space
Now seeing that, I thought what any human would think
Starlite and Rainbow Brite are traveling to Rainbow Land from planet Spectra
Instead, in their place was a Pegasus with a golden horn on its forehead
On his back was a pink haired child who looked a lot like the princess of the moon a while back
As they rode off, it had become official
I was losing my mind
Continuing through darkness, I nearly get run over by another spaceship
As I shout obscenities at it, the pilot apologizes and offers me a lift to make up for the trouble
Inside, the ship is like another planet in a way
The crew is composed of two bounty hunters
One, a middle aged man with a bionic arm
The other one, a young man with green hair and a devil-may-care attitude
A twenty year freeloader wearing skimpy clothing
A genetically formed Welsh Corgi
And a very bizarre girl named Ed
Don't ask questions
After dropping me off at a requested location, they find their wanted criminal and take off
I make a left at Alpha Centauri and find another group of planets
This journey, which was once amusing, has become so uncanny
The thrill has left
I pick planets at random to see which is mine
This planet, 7 Chinese warriors accompanying a young priestess
In summoning a divine phoenix to grant their wish
That planet, the same situation
Except with a kid with a monkey's tail on a quest to find 7 orbs to summon a giant dragon
It's too outrageous! It don't make no sense!
Sue me if that a double negative
But now I can't think straight!
What will be on this next planet?
An international thief with an incompetent law official chasing after him in an attempt to arrest him?
I enter and quickly exit
I hate it when I'm right…
I travel through more planets trying to get home
Each of them more incredible than the last
A song sung in the Japanese tongue, something about a Sailor Star, eased my frustration temporarily
It had a beautiful melody with awesome music!
One more planet stands in my path
I've tried all the rest and they've failed
So what harm can one more do?
I rethink that question and rephrase it
What physical harm can one more do?
Psychologically, it's way too late!
With no other option, I enter
In this world, I am flying overhead
There is a young man who lives in the Japanese countryside
Residing with his father, his grandfather
And six crazy women from various regions of the universe who all have the hots for him!
Two of which can never give the boy any peace!
I fly to another part of this world
Still thinking of how to get home
I suddenly hear a sound after landing on black pavement
"Oh Lord, now what? Race cars?", I thought outloud
I see in the far distance a white car
And immediately dodge out of the way to avoid becoming roadkill
I managed to get a quick look at the license plate so I could report him to the police
I wasn't sure what it said but it seemed to read
I face went blank as my mind did likewise
I can't take no mo'!
My frustration is released through my mouth for all to hear
There is light
I discover it as I sit up in my bed, half-awake and confused
Upon regaining my composure, I remember the weird dream
That weird, crazy dream!
I sit and ponder as to what in the world could possibly have caused it
As I think, the answer surrounds me
My various Japanese animation DVDs surrounding my DVD player
29 issues of Animerica magazine
20 issues of Anime Insider
Shelves, bookcases and anything with a flat surface loaded with anime paraphernalia
And me falling asleep on the last ten minutes of Adult Swim on Cartoon Network
"Dude," in an amazed tone
That was all I could say after my wild fantasy
I then sit in bed, staring blankly into space
Looking at the walls, the ceiling, the door front and back, and then at the door
All covered in Japanese animation
I stare into blank space for a while more
Thinking about that totally wild fantasy I had last night….
Then go right back to sleep in hopes of having the same dream again!
