Author has written 4 stories for Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Saint Seiya.
Ore wo dare da to omotte yagaru?! (Well, I'm about to tell you, aren't I.)
Traditional Profile-y Stuff (...how did my profile get so long?! Ah well. I hope it entertains you.)
Disclaimer (thanks to Team Four Star for providing a 'template', as it were): The stuff I write on this website is based on works of fiction that I do not own. No copyright infringement intended. I make no money off of this. I do not own DBZ or any of the characters. Any of the OCs in said stories are part of that setting, so also not owned by me, but I don't think they're technically owned by the people who own DBZ either, since they've almost certainly never heard of my OCs for one thing (and didn't come up with them for another)...
...I guess nobody owns them. They exist in the creative void or something. Anyway, Dragon Ball in its various forms is owned by Akira Toriyama, Toei Animation, Funimation, and apparently Fuji TV (um...who are Fuji TV...?)
So, yeah...support those people. Buy their stuff. I know I do. You would not believe how much of my money has gone into DB manga*. (And now they're releasing full-colour manga, so naturally I've got to get that too...)
(*All right, if you earn an even halfway-decent amount of money you probably would believe it, and just sort of shrug at it, but I be but a humble university student.)
I also should now add that I don't own Yu Yu Hakusho. Yoshihiro Togashi does. And, like...Toei Animation, did they do YYH as well? Probably? Maybe some other people, too? Uh, and Funimation.
And even newer update, I don't own Saint Seiya, much as I wish I did. That would belong to Masami Kurumada, Toei Animation once again, and the twelve gods of Olympus.
Personal Philosophy (cough)
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that. And I'd say he knows a lit-tle more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it! And then he perfected it so no man could best him in the ring of honour. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth--and then he herded them onto a boat--and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward, any time a bunch of animals are together in one place, it's called a zoo!
...Unless it's a farm."
--The Soldier, Team Fortress 2
"This world is made of...LOVE AND PEACE!"
--Vash the Stampede, Trigun
"Democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
--Winston Churchill, Real Life
"Logic...merely enables one to be wrong with authority."
--the Second Doctor
My stories, I guess I should mention those here?
Break Through the Limit, my main story (DBZ). Originally cobbled together from various disparate ideas, the main plot is a slow redemption for Raditz, which will shortly be culminating with my attempt at fusing some reworked ideas from GT with a continuation of Battle of the Gods for the sort-of sequel, Even Further Beyond. Is currently at over 3,000 reviews, and I think [insert some number of hundreds] follows and favourites? In any case, far more popular than I ever could've hoped. It's also the second-most-reviewed DBZ story on the site, worldwide! I love you guys. (Updates Sundays.)
The Disappearance of Yusuke Urameshi (Yu Yu Hakusho). Kuroko Sanada, the first Spirit Detective, on a one-last-mission deal. Team Urameshi has vanished, and the second Demon World Tournament is coming up. Koenma has very few people to turn to, and his only lead is a revived Dark Tournament...you do the math. Updates whenever the next chapter is finished.
Best Served Cold, a collaboration with NinjaGin87 (also DBZ). Follows the Ginyu Force's mission to assassinate Frieza, alongside Kakarot (sent to Yardrat instead of Earth) and the saiyans. Updates very slowly. EDIT: And now not at all, see the story's description for the reason.
Lost Destiny (Saint Seiya). Three twists of fate (the positions of Marin and Toma, Hyoga and Isaac, and Ikki and Shun being swapped) lead to some rather different paths for the development of Saori Kido's Bronze Saints. Things don't go so smoothly when they meet up (I am fully aware they didn't go great in canon...even less so). Sanctuary's wrath, and the Holy Wars of the 20th century, are still bearing down on them, though--and the world isn't going to save itself.
This section will return, once I've reworked it. It was super-outdated.
About Me, for Those who Care
I was born at an early age, and after a few years working as a full-time infant I entered the education system, and despite Mr. Gove's best efforts to screw it up I have learned some fascinating facts about rocks which escape me right now.
I currently reside in the Milky Way galaxy, living on a diet almost entirely of carbon-based lifeforms. I plan to become a professional writer, and doing this stuff is as good practice as any. I have got a couple of pieces of original writing that I'm working on, but some of those are comic scripts and the artist is almost as lethargic as I am, and the pure text ones aren't in nearly good enough shape for public consumption. I also have the attention span of a squirrel with caffeine for blood, so I have quite a few projects that I started but never finished. Such is the way of things.
I have once been given an award for best/worst martial arts moves. In an IT class.

The Great Tokusatsu Marathon (Updated pretty much constantly)
Because I'm probably insane, I decided one day that I would marathon Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. All of it. From 1971 up to the present. And maybe Metal Heroes, too (or maybe just the first three, the Uchuu Keiji trilogy, since so far those are the only ones to have experienced a revival and become in-canon with Rider/Sentai).
Year: 1984. Most recently finished: Uchuu Keiji Gavan and Dai Sentai Goggle V. Currently watching: Choudenshi Bioman.
Ranking of series' seen so far
Excellent: Kamen Rider V3, Kamen Rider Amazon, Kamen Rider Spirits
Great: Kamen Rider season 1, Kamen Rider Stronger (first half, 'meh' to 'good', second half, 'excellent'), Himitsu Sentai Goranger, Kamen Rider Super-1, Uchuu Keiji Gavan
Good: Kamen Rider X, Skyrider (/"New Kamen Rider") (swings between 'meh' and 'great'), Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan, Dai Sentai Goggle V, Kamen Rider ZX
Meh: JAKQ Dengekitai, Battle Fever J
Bad: Nothing yet...
(*indicates I haven't seen enough of a series to be 100%, my opinion could change if I did.)
Wasn't sure whether or not to put ZX (a TV special) or Spirits (a manga) on there. Figured they don't "correspond" to anything like, for instance, a V3 movie or a Gavan movie would, so they deserve their own place on there. And I didn't include the original KR manga, since it's in some ways a condensed version of the events of season 1. And yes, ZX is that to Spirits, so by that logic Spirits should go on there and ZX shouldn't, but ZX is the canon TV version so it kind of has to be there.
Oh, also: "Excellent" means I adore a series and really feel for its characters and fanboy tremendously. "Great" means I enjoy it a lot and will happily sit down and watch any given episode, or a whole bunch, just about whenever. "Good" means there are plenty of really cool things about the series, but there are also some fairly significant flaws that detract from it. "Meh" means the good and the bad just about balance out, and it's not that I don't enjoy watching it at all, but it's unlikely to sustain my interest for long. "Bad" is...um...a bad series. *shrugs*
