Author has written 5 stories for Grave of the Fireflies, Disney, Les Miserables, Memoirs of a Geisha, Lilo & Stitch, and Avatar: Last Airbender.

I now have another account on fictionpress, so go ahead and check it out! http://www.fictionpress.com/u/771097/321Haruko123

November 1st 2014: Looking back at my Light of the Fireflies Trilogy, I don't really like the second and third parts that much, being written by an amateur teenager and all. The first one could also use some work, so perhaps someday I'll do a rewrite. A part of me wants to delete the other two, but if it weren't for them, I probably wouldn't be writing at all, and I wouldn't have the awesome story and characters from my current work in progress (see my fictionpress page). So I guess for now, parts 2 and 3 are here to stay.

Ideas for possible upcoming fanfics:

Avatar: The Last Airbender and Studio Ghibli crossover: Ghibli in the Four Nations... plus Republic City. Similar to Disney in the Four Nations. The stories of various Ghibli characters as if they lived in the Avatar world, either in the distant past, the present, or the far future. Most of the stories will be about citizens of Republic City who rediscover their roots from one or two of the four nations through their adventures. I'm hoping to include characters from all of the studio Ghibli films that I have seen.

Name: 321Haruko123 (what? You thought I was going to tell you my real name?)

Gender: Female

Age: Adult

Nationality: Canadian and proud of it. I don't say "eh," or live in an igloo, or ride on polar bears, or live in a winter wonderland, or hate Americans, so don't ask.

Ethnic Background: English, Irish, Canadian Aboriginal, possibly a little French.

Favourite TV Shows: Avatar - The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

Favourite Jdrama: Ohisama starring Mao Inoue. Just check it out, it's a really beautiful and heartwarming show.

Favourite Music: Various film soundtracks, Ue o Muite Aruko or "Sukiyaki" by Kyu Sakamoto. Almost anything by Kyu Sakamoto. Also, Annette Hanshaw songs.

Hobbies: Reading and Writing (duh), learning about History, Asian cultures, watching movies (particularly of the animation and historical genres)

Favourite Books and Series: Totto-chan: The Little Girl at the window (by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi), Golden Mountain Chronicles (by Laurence Yep), Barefoot Gen (by Keiji Nakazawa), Les Miserables (Victor Hugo).

Favorite Movies: So many I can't decide, though I like most Disney movies. Traditionally animated Disney movies, though Tangled is an exception. Since there are so many, I'll list my favourites for each decade.

1930s - Snow White

1940s - Bambi

1950s - Sleeping Beauty (Lady and the Tramp is a close second)

1960s - One Hundred and One Dalmatians

1970s - Robin Hood (The Aristocats is a close second)

1980s - The Little Mermaid


2000s - The Princess and the Frog (The Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch are close seconds and thirds)

2010s - Frozen (Beautiful animation, great music and songs, characters that are loveable and love-to-hateable [some in surprising ways!]!)

In case you haven't guessed yet, I'm also a fan of Studio Ghibli. I'm really looking forward to Miyazaki's Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) and Takahata's Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Story of Princess Kaguya), and it's exciting to have two potential masterpieces released in the same year. Here's a list of the films I have seen, in the order of my favourites.

1. My Neighbour Totoro (Such a happy-go-lucky film! I just love Totoro and the Catbus! I really wish I had seen this as a kid... )

2. Grave of the Fireflies (Setsuko is the cutest animated child of all time! Very sad, but very beautiful film...)

3. Porco Rosso (Perfect blend of history, comedy, action, and Fio!)

4. Only Yesterday (Simple story, simply told, simply great!)

5. From Up on Poppy Hill (While not a masterpiece like Spirited Away, I love how it seems so calm and real, and it has one of my favourite songs by Kyu Sakamoto!)

5. Spirited Away (Tied with Poppy Hill. It's a little weird, but in a crazy-awesome kind of way! An explosion of Miyazaki's imagination...!)

6. Whisper of the Heart (Kinda dragged a little, but I still appreciate the story, plus, Shizuku is a character I can identify with in so many ways.)

7. Kiki's Delivery Service (Love the European-like setting. Again, a movie I wish I had seen as a kid...)

8. The Cat Returns (Used to be #1 before I saw the above films. I love cats! Perhaps my OC is named after Yuki...)

9. Pom Poko (Despite some of the weirdness, it's incredibly hilarious, and you definitely feel for the characters and their plight.)

10. Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (One word for you: Cuteness!)

11. My Neighbours the Yamadas (Pretty unique film, plus it's hilarious!)

12. Laputa: Castle in the Sky (Not a big fan of the plot or action, but I still love the characters and the music.)

13. The Secret World of Arrietty (First Ghibli film I've seen in a theatre. Good animation, music and characters. Wouldn't mind not seeing it again, though)

14. Howl's Moving Castle (A little too weird for me, though Calcifer is pretty funny. If you hate me for this, may all your bacon BURN! LOL!)

15. Princess Mononoke (Beautiful animation and music and great pacifist and environmental messages. Still, it just isn't my kind of movie.)

16. Tales from Earthsea (The plot didn't make sense and the main character had no personality whatsoever. Loved the backgrounds and the music though.)

17. Ocean Waves (Haven't watched it the whole way through. So boring I stopped less than a quarter into it. I might try and watch the whole thing someday...)

I haven't put Nausicaa on this list as I still have yet to see it.

Favourite non-animated movies: The Road Home directed by Zhang Yimou, Twenty-Four Eyes directed by Keisuke Kinoshita, Fiddler of the Roof directed by Norman Jewison.
