Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 7 Sparring/Bonding
It had been 3 hours since he had sealed himself in the train deck. He had grown frustrated with Allura again and gotten into a rather large argument on how to handle the revelation of Haggar using Alteans as sacrificial guinea pigs. She wanted to go rushing in to save her people, something he would have done in her case, but he felt they needed intel first. Intel so they wouldn't get caught with their pants down like at Naxzela.
Where Haggar was, what her current strengths were etc. Something Allura did not want to hear and took offense to. Something to which brought up Naxzela and how everyone nearly died. How they all, almost died had it not been for proper intel and Lotor saving them at the last possible moment. Something which caused Allura to make a jab at the Blade of Marmora and Keith retaliate by saying “At least the Blades weren't focused on stupid Voltron shows, and just so you know, had you and the other’s listened and followed up on the Quintessence leads WE cou

Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 6 Cosmic Wolf Bath
Keith was sitting on the porch of a cottage he and Acxa went to get away from the garrison when they needed time away from everyone during shore leave. Well, it was a cottage that the Paladins shared, but their time at the cottage was alternated. This week it was Keith’s turn, and boy was he lonely.
Acxa was paying the warden a visit to Beta-Traz a visit. Apparently, he and Acxa use to be frienemies from their early days in the Imperial Academy. She also took Keith’s wolf as a little play date for Laika, so for once in nearly 5-6 years Keith was all by himself. Something he thought he missed but missed his mate and fur-baby.
He got up as he saw a garrison pod similar to the Altean pods coming towards the cottage. Acxa was the first to get out of the pod and greeted Keith with a deep and passionate kiss. When Keith asked about his wolf she pointed with her thumb, “He is in the back.” He raised an eyebrow ‘Whyyyyy?” Acxa had an amused look on her face,

Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 5: Quite/Tender Moment Chaos
They were separated from their respective units when trying to liberate a planet they were on. Something had gone horribly wrong. Either the intel was false or someone had ratted them out to allies still loyal to the Empire. The ensuing ground battle was absolute chaos.
Keith and Acxa were separated from the group, lost and wandering in enemy territory. With a few of the paladins, Keith’s wolf, and few accompanying blades were injured having to withdraw leaving the 2 of them. Something that was hard to do, but they had to do. Without the Lions or Atlas or the MFEs as any backup, the Paladins were greatly outnumbered 400 to 13 with the numbers increasing against them.
It was nightfall and both needed to find shelter to survive the night. With the exception of his bayard and the jumpsuit, Keith got rid of almost all of his white and red armor that made him stand out as a Paladin of Voltron. Even Acxa shed her armor, reluctantly but knew she had to to survive the night. They saw wha

Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 4 Scars
It had been six months since Keith was placed in an Earth made cryo-pod, after his crash to Earth after defeating the Hammerhead Robeast. Six long months in which Keith was held in suspended animation when doctors learned he was a hybrid. Someone contacted the coalition informing them, that they needed some of the best doctors, and 2 particular Galra to come to Earth.
When the Coalition doctors arrived with Krolia and Acxa, after agonizing reunion between the 2 women and the one they cared for, Acxa let the human and coalition doctor’s run needed medical tests on her to help Keith. Her paladin, the one who stole her heart over the span nearly 5 years since that fateful day in the Weblum. She was also the only other known hybrid to the Paladins, and whose other side was the closest to human DNA. Something in which helped the Earth Doctors and Coalition doctors make their best-educated guesses.

He sat down in a huff not wanting to be there, as soft mall music played over the speakers. His finger making an organic metal tap on his blue bicep armor. Even though he didn't want to be there with his wife, Sho aka Guyver-I, just couldn't say no to Mizuki. Even when he was in either of his Guyver armors she was his greatest weakness.
He barely noticed when a male in white and red armor over a black jumpsuit. He removed the red and white helmet he was wearing placing it on the bench near him doing the same crossing his arms. He looked over the aqua blue armored creature thinking “he’s never seen an alien like him before. Looks rather mean.” before looking forward again.
Sho was surprised seeing someone who looked like another human. He thought he and Mizuki were the only humans this far away from Earth.

Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 1: Future
It had been a month and a half, or so it seemed since Keith and Krolia jumped on the Namida navigating the Quantum Abyss. A month and a half since they rescued a Tlvdatsi wolf pup from certain death and started bonding over visions they have shared of their past. Some were pleasant others were filled with sorrow and anger and others were neither sad, upsetting, or happy. Both mother and son got to bond and make up for lost time.
They use to take shifts sleeping when the wolf was just a small pup, but when he started to get larger they could both sleep approximately the same times. The wolf would sometimes sleep… well, smother Keith as he got larger, and would sometimes sleep with Krolia. Other nights he would sleep at the foot of the cave and would growl at anything that would approach the cave. Tonight was one of those nights when the flash happened.
Keith saw a brief glimpse of him with Lotor’s former general Acxa sitting around a fire. He got a quick glimpse of the other

Part 2: The Rescue
The wolf got off the bed and started pacing back and forth whining. It scratched at the door leading out of the room, but the door wouldn't budge due to General Quarters still in effect. Romelle asked Cosmo what was the matter in which the wolf whined some more and released a sad howl before flashing out in sparks.
Romelle getting (the typical anime) worried look ran to the door. When it didn't open she made the comment “of course lockdown.” But she had to get to the bridge, so she just rammed her curled up arm into the flimsy Earth door and started running towards the bridge. Nearly taking her five minutes and countless dozens of cadets nearly ran over by the elven looking girl, all while Auxiliary Power started to come online.
She entered the bridge taking everyone by surprise prompting the Shiro to ask her what was wrong. She informed him the wolf is gone, prompting Shiro to ask “What do you mean gone?” Romelle continued to inform hi

Daddy Please Wake Up!
Part 1: The Explosion & Crash
The explosion was nearly as bright as the antiquated nuclear weapons used for tests during a conflict that happened nearly 150 years ago called the Cold War if not brighter. Temporarily frying the polarized filters in the cockpits of the lions, causing the paladins to go blind. Not that becoming blind would matter…
The explosion was bright enough that it looked as if it were a second sun. Not even seconds later it slammed into the lions with enough force it was a surprise that they weren't destroyed. Slamming into the black lion the hardest, having supported the body and the other lions supporting the limbs. But there were no screams over the comms, it was as if they accepted their inevitable fate.
In the cockpit of the Black Lion, being hit the hardest, Keith was instantaneously thrown into the console in front of him causing him to scream out blindly from some of his ribs breaking before collapsing back into his chair. Almost as if sensing t

She groggily opened her eyes she looked around and saw she was wrapped up tightly against her mate's chest with his wings. He was in his Zoaform asleep facing the circular entrance of the room. She could tell they were still inside it, for it was hot and humid. Her body was covered in sweat and her hair stuck to her body.
She started to stir as her vision cleared up. She felt his wings move off her to allow her to move more freely. She closed her eyes briefly rubbing her head against his middle peck sighing softly before pushing herself up. Her muscles ached in protest causing her to groan. Her head throbbed from the organic light being generated in the room.

Voice: We have lost the lion, but sensors are picking up a weird energy signature. One I have never seen before.
The atmosphere was dark besides the pinks, purples, and reds illuminating the bridge. A sole figure could be seen standing behind a glowing pink pedestal with 2 soldiers in solid light gray armor on the lower level. The sole figure was a male with purple skin and yellow eyes wearing armor multiple shades of gray with a pink insignia on his chest. On top of his head four boney spikes leading to the base of his cranium.
Commander: On screen.
Seconds later the visual of a golden wormhole appeared on the viewscreen. There was also a brief blue flash in which some sort of object was barely picked up on sensors tumbling through space. The sensors recorded it to be approximately 9' x 5' x 3', and that it was a diamond shape. The sensors also recorded that it was in the space between the prisoner's homeworld and a predominately desolate red plan

Voltron: LD - Old Friends Reunited
It had been thirteen hours. 13 hours since she and her son were fired upon by Lotor's Generals who stole the Sincline ships. 13 hours since he took the Paladins into battle against them and went after the Rogue-Shiro. It had been nearly 8 hours since Lotor was vanquished to the Quintessence Rift and the Castle of Lions evacuated and sacrificed to save the universe.
She had watched her son in battle with exuberant pride, the pride only a Galra mother could hold towards their soldier of a child. When questioned on who would fly the Black Lion, she could see her long-lost mate's determination and attitude in him. She couldn't help but think on how proud he would have been of Keith being the pilot and leader he was. He seemingly did after all get his piloting skills from Trevor.
She couldn't help but smile sadly at the thought of him. The last time she saw him was when she said "I love you" before leaving their house to walk to the remaining Galra scoutship to leave Earth. She never consid

June 14th 7:36 pm local time. Mount Everest:
The trek was daunting even in their battle forms. In her Guyver armor, she could feel the frigid temperature which seemed to be bitter cold to her core out of spite. It was supposed to be the Summer season on Everest, but it was more like the dead of winter.
She covered her forehead out of instinct to protect her Control Medal but lowered them when she stopped feeling the cold wind and snow assaulting her face. She saw her mate Mirgro using his left wing as a shield for her. She could see the pain on his Hyper-Zoanoid face. But she could also see his determination to keep her safe.
Mirgro towered over her by a 2 and a half feet so it was no big deal for him to shelter her in this form when. She faltered on her footing a little which he instinctually had one of his tentacles come from his back and go towards her.

Chapter 1: Fall of Earth
The year is 2010, the War for Earth had raged for nearly 3 years now, due to his return. But the war had actually started back in 1994 when an unoccupied Relic was “sent home” and again over a decade later in 2005 when another Relic was destroyed just over a once dormant volcano. However what was found in the Relic that was sent home was disturbing prompting immediate rectification even though the situation was loosely taken care of. Even the distinct energy signature of a Relic exploding required prompt action when they entered System X-9-Y near the planet, Pluto.
Towards the end of 2006 the Advents sent an “Emissary” ahead of their arrival in the form of Apollyon to gather intel and to act when the situation deemed it necessary. He had witnessed the death battle between the Dragonlord and Guyver-I in a more powerful form. A form that had faint signatures from the very Relic that exploded.

I apologize for the lack of updates. As of the beginning of this year I not only was extremely sick, but I have been receiving Assistant-Department Manager training where I work. SO I have had a lack of energy to focus on any of my stories and my WIP "Vicky I don't feel too hot" piece. I haven't forgotten about them, I just haven't had the time or the energy to work on them.
Let’s start things off by looking at this list:
1991 - The Guyver
1994 - Guyver: Dark Hero (better but it tries too hard to repair things)
1995 - Fist of the North Star
2008 - Speed Racer
2009 - Dragon Ball Evolution
2010 - The Last Airbender (added because of its an Adaptation)
2013 - Oldboy
2014 - Kite
2017 - Ghost in the Shell & Netflix’s Death Note
Up until recently, these were the only American made Anime films. There has even been some Live Action to Anime Adaptations such as Witchblade, Blade,and even Wolverine. But the road to a decent American made Manga/Anime to Live Action (or as I call them MAtLA) adaptation has been a long painful road for fans. Whether it was because movies were too early for their time, or they didn't do the source material justice, applied a different genre’s standards that had no place being applied or were simply hated because of “whitewashing,” fans have been split over the live action adaptations of their favorite series.
As a Guyver fan, I am happy that not only the 1991 movie started the push to get to where we are now but it introduced me to animes like Ghost in the Shell, Battle Angel, Ninja Scroll, and many others, namely for the reasons I list above. But out of this list, it is atrocious and in my opinion the worst movie on this list. It still holds a spot in my heart because it introduced me to the Guyver anime which then introduced me to more Teen-Oriented Anime. But this post is not about Guyver, or Dragon Ball Evolution, The Last Airbender, Ghost in the Shell, or even Speed Race. 
It is about Alita: Battle Angel. The latest and quite possibly the best of the MAtLA movies. I admit that in the US market I didn't expect Alita to do so well. Especially with the competition, it got with How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World and will receive from Captain Marvel (which I expect because it is a Marvel movie) will drown Alita and Hidden World in the Box Office. But that being said, we Battle Angel Fans (or as I have suggested Alitans for our official title - like Whovians or G-Fans or Trekkies) can hold our heads high. 
Alita in spite of the critics or horrible reviews it got and continues to get, has supposedly made 350 million in the box office seems to still be making more, this in itself is a success for all MAtLAs past and future because no other adaptation has grossed such a number. Which some say this number guarantees a sequel to be made. But even if it doesn't get a sequel (which I would be sad about), because of the Fox/Disney merger (which I hope only applies to Marvel-based characters), Alita is and will always be a success. 
I feel it Alita: Battle Angel has set the standard for any further attempt to make MAtLA adaptations. Sort of like how the Richard Donner Superman movies set the standard for Superhero movies for 30 years and how the MCU has seemingly set the standard for Superhero movies of today. I feel Alita, has set the standards for these movies. This movie was a breakout movie that people hyped Ghost in the Shell to be - but failed to achieve. Now don’t get me wrong, I loved Ghost in the Shell, Ghost in the Shell was my second teen-oriented anime, but it crumbled under the pressure of its hype. 
Now that Alita: Battle Angel will be leaving theaters soon, possibly with the arrival of Captain Marvel, it will be interesting to see what opportunities Alita opened up for future movies. Will be getting reboots/remakes of some like Guyver or Dragon Ball - or will the failed movies simply fade into the darkness of her shadow? Only time will tell.
But one thing is for sure, the future of a growing industry hasn’t looked brighter. So let’s keep the good work up and support this movie until it leaves the theater. Who has to benefit? We do the fans! When we start seeing MAtLAs become as rampant as movies from the MCU or Superhero shows we will know that we helped Alita do the job she was capable of.
Just think, we can possibly see some movies like Elfen Lied, Tenchi Muyo, Iria, VOLTRON, and many many more popular series brought to life. Think of what a Guyver or Dragon Ball live action would be like, especially if done in 3D like Alita. We can very well be on the precipice of a new era of entertainment. But we need to do what we can to ensure it happens. So go out and see Alita as many times as possible!
Part 3: What Now?
Everything moved so quickly for the wolf, it seemed like minutes a massive Metallic Earth creature appeared in the skies. Lowering a ramp in which more medics came running out to the medic desperately trying to save a barely clinging on Keith. Before long the wolf and ROmelle were back on the ship being ushered towards the Sickbay the waiting room.

In sickbay, the medical staff were briefed on the condition of the Red Paladin and started going to work on trying to save his life. They delicately removed his armor and jumpsuit piled it up in the furthest corner to keep it out of the way. Some of the medical staff gasped at the scars he had on his bruised body.

The one grabbing the most attention the scar on his right trapezoid/shoulder that went down nearly 5 inches. The next scar to garnish their attention was the burn scar on his right cheek that stopped just under his eye. The rest of the scars were what appeared to be various cuts from various fights. He also had various other burn scars on his body.

Just as they started the surgeries to save the paladin’s life, the roadblocks started popping up due to being a hybrid. When the staff seemed to bypass one another completely popped up. It got to a point that the head surgeon had no idea what he was doing. Not only did Keith have Human organs, but he was exhibiting organs the doctor had never seen in place of where human organs should have been. He calmly backed away from the table exclaiming “What the hell am I looking at? Get Commander Holt here NOW!”



The Black Lion was delicately placed on a platform which was then raised into a hanger bay designated for the lions. Hanger-Bay crews made sure to take extra measures to ensure that the lion was secured. Maintenance crews came to start assessing the damage done to Black based off of blueprints that were downloaded from the device Commander Holt brought which was initially downloaded from the Castle of Lions.

The Atlas had started to slowly move towards the Garrison Base, to land after the stressful battle with Sendak’s fleet and the Hammerhead Robeast. Shiro himself wanted to go check on Keith but was reminded that the ship needed her captain on the Bridge until everyone had returned. Coran, however, left to check on Keith, on Shiro’s behalf.

WHen Coran got to the waiting room he knew automatically how bad it was by looking at Romelle and the wolf. He also had seen the pile of Paladin armor which was moved out into the waiting room. Giving him an ever slight inkling of the Red Paladin’s condition. The chest and helmet armor were all but completely shattered. Something that would have taken an immense amount of force to do.

Both Coran and Romelle looked up a few agonizing minutes later, seeing Commander Holt walk into sick-bay. He was about to ask them what was the matter but saw the Red Paladin armor all but neglected in the corner. A few seconds later he was approached by the doctor with some of Keith’s blood on him. The scent of Keith’s blood hit the wolf’s nose causing him to jump up looking for Keith.

The doctor ushered Sam into an adjoining room overlooking the operation room in which there was a figure covered in an operating tarp connected to a bunch of machines monitoring his vitals and one to keep him breathing. Sam looked to the doctor who still had a bewildered look on his face “What is this about?” The doctor turned to Sam, “I’d like to know that myself, sir.” Sam looked at him expectantly “What do you mean?” The doctor started walking towards the monitors which had all the current info on the person on the table, “That boy, the red armored Paladin, has organs I have never seen in my 30 years of medicine.”

Getting Sam’s full attention now, he rushed to the monitors, “What?” Sam looked at the monitors dumbfounded, seeing some that were clearly human, a few organs that looked Galra, and others that were a combination of both, “He was supposed to be human!” The doctor looked at him, “What is it we are looking at sir?” Sam looked back at the monitors, “A hybrid…” The doctor looked back to the operating room where the other doctors were waiting for him to return, “If he is a hybrid, then what do we do?” Sam got up and walked to the same window, “I… I don't know. Let me talk to his team when they return.” He continued t look at Keith the red armored paladin intubated and unconscious. The thought running through his head “Well that dashes my dreams we were the first ones to meet aliens.”


Allura was the first to return to Atlas on her own accord. She was ushered by a singular person with red batons wearing a brown version of the Galaxy Garrison fatigues. She flew past the downed black lion a little taken aback on how it’s exact position mirrored the time Shiro disappeared after the defeat of Zarkon. She got up as Blue lowered her head and Allura hobbled out of her lion asking the nearest grounds person about the pilot.

Hunk and Pidge were the next two paladins to return under their own accord and ushered into their bays to the left of the Black Lion. Both had the same instinct as Allura and met up with her in the Hanger. Hunk’s orange band was half drenched in blood with caked blood going down the side of his face.

Pidge who has calmed herself since her landing was still a bit skittish. She like Allura had bruises on her body but was still coming to terms with what she had been through. She looked like she was on the verge of another breakdown, just by her demeanor.

Failing to notice that the Red lion was also being delicately moved into the bay to the immediate right of the Black Lion.

In the MFE-Hanger Lance got out of Griffin’s MFE his right arm in a sling. He was informed that his teammates were in the Lions’ bay by fellow sniper Kinkade. Excite to see them after such a harrowing experience he went to join them, oblivious to the somber tone of Kinkade and the demeanor of the 2 female pilots. When he entered the corridor he was nearly run over by a yellow and white blur and greeted by Allura and Pidge calling out to Hunk.

His heart dropped when he was met by Coran, Romelle, and Kosmo who was laying near Keith’s discarded armor who had a pathetic look on his face. A look like he was lost without his human. Minutes later Allura and Pidge showed up with Lance in tow and were greeted with the same sight.

Moments later Sam out of the consultation room with the operating doctor in tow. Sam had a somber look on his face asking everyone to sit down. Both he and the doctor proceeded to inform them about Keith’s condition, how they managed to repair some of his injuries but not all of them. But the other injuries they couldn't do anything about due to him being a hybrid.

Allura recommended the Cryopod which to her knowledge was still in the Black Lion, but wasn’t sure how long it would last without a compatible power source. Coran offered to set it up but wasn’t sure how it would affect his Galra DNA. Even Pidge and Hunk were stumped on how they would integrate the tech, prompting Pidge to suggest they could contact Ryner.

Everyone jumped hearing the Operation Staff scream and come running out of the surgery room. Everyone jumped up the best they could and ran into the operating room. They found the wolf with his head on Keith’s chest whining, wanting daddy to wake up. Even nuzzling and licking his limp hand. Most of the paladins had to look away at the heart-wrenching sight except Hunk and Romelle who had already seen the worst of it. With his voice almost breaking Lance made the call, “Do it. Contact the Blades also. We may need their help.”

Pidge had gone to leave but was denied exiting Sickbay. When asked why her father simply said she had to be cleared to leave after the battle they endured. She tried to pull her “I’m fine” routine but knowing the stubbornness she got from mother, he ordered her to stay. He was still a superior officer while the Voltron-Force was temporarily on Earth, but most of all he didn’t want to deal with her mother if something was missed and she got hurt even more after she just returned to Earth.

After Sam left, Romelle did what she could to bring the wolf back into the waiting room after he had laid down on the floor next to his operating table. She and Pidge sat on the floor with and comforted him the best they could as Medical staff went back to doing what they could for Keith. All but Coran and Romelle waiting to be cleared to leave Sickbay. A few minutes later Shiro and the MFE pilots entered the sickbay waiting room and learned what the current situations were.

Hunk looked around at all the somber faces in the room. He looked at Pidge and Romelle stroking the wolf, they now had to address the new elephant in the room, “So who is going to take care of Kosmo?” Everyone stopped what they were doing looking up at Hunk, just realizing that Keith was all the wolf had, and the wolf was all Keith had for actual “family” on Earth.
Daddy Please Wake Up! part 3
I apologize for taking so long posting this. After I posted the emotional part 2, I slammed into a brick wall at warp factor 9.998 and bounced off. But thankfully with two prompts from the recent Kacxa-Week, I managed to break through that brick wall. I hope you enjoy part 3 as the previous ones. 

PS: The Kacxa-Week prompts have NO SPOILER MERIT to this story what so ever. So don't expect any spoilers between them :) (Smile)

Had a good hand day WIP
I had a good hand day last night and today in which I felt inspired to do a sketch of my OC Guyver and his girlfriend Victoria after a fight in which he looses his right arm. It is a work in progress but it felt damn good to sketch again without my carpal tunnel flaring. I plan to work on it some more tonight providing the rain doesn't screw me out of the rest of my good day Death Stare You Are My Sunshine My Only Sunshine 

I want to thank Tumblr user yumirei for posting a pose similar for Kacxa-Week and sharing her reference picture with me.

It had been 3 hours since he had sealed himself in the train deck. He had grown frustrated with Allura again and gotten into a rather large argument on how to handle the revelation of Haggar using Alteans as sacrificial guinea pigs. She wanted to go rushing in to save her people, something he would have done in her case, but he felt they needed intel first. Intel so they wouldn't get caught with their pants down like at Naxzela.

Where Haggar was, what her current strengths were etc. Something Allura did not want to hear and took offense to. Something to which brought up Naxzela and how everyone nearly died. How they all, almost died had it not been for proper intel and Lotor saving them at the last possible moment. Something which caused Allura to make a jab at the Blade of Marmora and Keith retaliate by saying “At least the Blades weren't focused on stupid Voltron shows, and just so you know, had you and the other’s listened and followed up on the Quintessence leads WE could have found that Altean colony sooner than Haggar!”

He left the briefing between the Paladins, Blades, MFE Pilots, Garrison Brass, and Rebel Leaders. Shiro followed to reprimand him but was given a look simply saying “Don’t start” causing him to raise his arms in defeat knowing when to talk to his younger brother and when to chastise him and when to leave him alone. Instead, Shiro went back to the briefing room to try and mitigate the carnage left behind.

That was 3 hours ago or going based off Keith’s time 8 Training Programs ago. He calmed himself readying his bayard and luxite sword. He had some bruises, scrapes, and cuts along his body, but he was still fuming from his blow up with Allura. He yelled “Begin Training Programs 9 and 10!” He smirked as 3 training drones appeared, one wielding a sword, another a staff, and another a whip. They all charged at him in which he released a war cry.

Keith was so enthralled in his training that he failed to notice someone was watching him. He hadn’t even heard the doors swoosh open. Only her clapping alerted him to her presence. He turned shooting a glare towards the clapping only to drop it seeing her walking towards him, “What are you here to berate me like Shiro?” Stopping, having never seen this side of him Acxa moved her hands from her sides to holding them across her stomach, “What? No! We were supposed to go for a ride in Black an hour ago for patrol.” Keith’s scowl dropped immediately and looked down, “Sorry.”

Walking up placing a hand on his already tense shoulders which seemed to relax from her touch, “It’s alright, I heard of your briefing. If you want to vent we can spar. Get your frustrations out on something living… rather than training drones, Galra toddlers can take out.” Keith looked up at her a little puzzled and looked down softly saying, “But I don’t want to hurt you.” She stripped her armor off down to her jumpsuit, “That's sweet and all…” She grabbed him and flipped him on to his back, “But you should know I am a bit tougher than I look.”

Keith gave her an “it’s on!” look before jumping up. The 2 of them sparred and play fought for hours, seeming to motivate each other to push further and further. They eventually got so tired that they staggered like drunk tired people trying to walk, before collapsing next to each other. They grabbed each other’s hands and stroked each other’s hands as Keith finally opened up to her on what was bothering him. Which prompted her to open up on her treatment as a Galra hybrid continuing their bonding. Eventually talking about their lives on their homeworld, their scars, their lives immediately before getting into the war and before they met each other.
Kacxa Week 2018 - Day 7 Sparring/Bonding
Keith needs to take some frustrations out after an argument with Allura and Acxa is all too willing to help him out.

Sorry for it being so short, I had difficulties writing this without having Keith go off on a tangent.

Journal History

Let’s start things off by looking at this list:
1991 - The Guyver
1994 - Guyver: Dark Hero (better but it tries too hard to repair things)
1995 - Fist of the North Star
2008 - Speed Racer
2009 - Dragon Ball Evolution
2010 - The Last Airbender (added because of its an Adaptation)
2013 - Oldboy
2014 - Kite
2017 - Ghost in the Shell & Netflix’s Death Note
Up until recently, these were the only American made Anime films. There has even been some Live Action to Anime Adaptations such as Witchblade, Blade,and even Wolverine. But the road to a decent American made Manga/Anime to Live Action (or as I call them MAtLA) adaptation has been a long painful road for fans. Whether it was because movies were too early for their time, or they didn't do the source material justice, applied a different genre’s standards that had no place being applied or were simply hated because of “whitewashing,” fans have been split over the live action adaptations of their favorite series.
As a Guyver fan, I am happy that not only the 1991 movie started the push to get to where we are now but it introduced me to animes like Ghost in the Shell, Battle Angel, Ninja Scroll, and many others, namely for the reasons I list above. But out of this list, it is atrocious and in my opinion the worst movie on this list. It still holds a spot in my heart because it introduced me to the Guyver anime which then introduced me to more Teen-Oriented Anime. But this post is not about Guyver, or Dragon Ball Evolution, The Last Airbender, Ghost in the Shell, or even Speed Race. 
It is about Alita: Battle Angel. The latest and quite possibly the best of the MAtLA movies. I admit that in the US market I didn't expect Alita to do so well. Especially with the competition, it got with How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World and will receive from Captain Marvel (which I expect because it is a Marvel movie) will drown Alita and Hidden World in the Box Office. But that being said, we Battle Angel Fans (or as I have suggested Alitans for our official title - like Whovians or G-Fans or Trekkies) can hold our heads high. 
Alita in spite of the critics or horrible reviews it got and continues to get, has supposedly made 350 million in the box office seems to still be making more, this in itself is a success for all MAtLAs past and future because no other adaptation has grossed such a number. Which some say this number guarantees a sequel to be made. But even if it doesn't get a sequel (which I would be sad about), because of the Fox/Disney merger (which I hope only applies to Marvel-based characters), Alita is and will always be a success. 
I feel it Alita: Battle Angel has set the standard for any further attempt to make MAtLA adaptations. Sort of like how the Richard Donner Superman movies set the standard for Superhero movies for 30 years and how the MCU has seemingly set the standard for Superhero movies of today. I feel Alita, has set the standards for these movies. This movie was a breakout movie that people hyped Ghost in the Shell to be - but failed to achieve. Now don’t get me wrong, I loved Ghost in the Shell, Ghost in the Shell was my second teen-oriented anime, but it crumbled under the pressure of its hype. 
Now that Alita: Battle Angel will be leaving theaters soon, possibly with the arrival of Captain Marvel, it will be interesting to see what opportunities Alita opened up for future movies. Will be getting reboots/remakes of some like Guyver or Dragon Ball - or will the failed movies simply fade into the darkness of her shadow? Only time will tell.
But one thing is for sure, the future of a growing industry hasn’t looked brighter. So let’s keep the good work up and support this movie until it leaves the theater. Who has to benefit? We do the fans! When we start seeing MAtLAs become as rampant as movies from the MCU or Superhero shows we will know that we helped Alita do the job she was capable of.
Just think, we can possibly see some movies like Elfen Lied, Tenchi Muyo, Iria, VOLTRON, and many many more popular series brought to life. Think of what a Guyver or Dragon Ball live action would be like, especially if done in 3D like Alita. We can very well be on the precipice of a new era of entertainment. But we need to do what we can to ensure it happens. So go out and see Alita as many times as possible!

Most welcome :) I've been a fan of Battle Angel: Alita since 95 and have been itching to see the movie since Cameron bought the rights in 99/2000
