Anthro League – Episode 1: Highlights and New Recruits
Chapter 3: Saving Childhood Games
“Here we are, new recruits, at the traditional side of Japan…Kyoto.” Jimmy said as he nods. “Would you guys like to have sushi with help of discount from my league benefits?”
“Oh boy! Sushi! Yes please, good sir!” Jeremy bounces with excitement.
Krusha, Charonus, and Klump all nod in agreement.
“Well alright then,” Jimmy said with a smile, “there’s a stand right near none other than Nintendo’s headquarters.”
“Nintendo?! My childhood video game company!! Take us, please!” Jeremy continues to shout for joy.”
Jimmy blushes as they arrive to the stand, where the chef greets them with a bow.
“Konichiwa. Welcome to my stand, how can I help you this afternoon?”
“Fifteen sushis of each sea species, please? Oh with my League’s…”
“Pssst…Jimmy?” Jeremy whispers.
“What’s up, young one?” Jimmy replied.
“No eels for me as I agree with dragons of Berk.”
“Alright, no eels for Jeremy here, just a good substitute specie for him. Oh with help of my League discount.” Jimmy said as he shows his ID status.
“Oh well, thank you for the service of your kind of anthros. Coming right up.”
As the chef begun to prepare their sushi dinner, Jimmy gets a phone call.
“Oh, hang on. Urgent phone call I assume?”
As he reached into his phone, he realize it is Dragon Heroes texted him from Tokyo, in the need for him.
“Hey um, new recruits, I have to go to Tokyo real quick. The dragons need me for something. Charonus you are also needed.”
“Oh no fair…Then that means Draco and my friend are there? Can I come along too please, Jimmy?” begged Jeremy.
“Sorry Jeremy, maybe if I come back, we’ll see. How about you and the others do find something helpful for the League? Do it for me, and all the anthros in the whole world! I promise you will see your dragon friends soon sometime.” Jimmy remarked as he placed his paws on Jeremy’s shoulders.
“Yes, sir. Anything! Especially for my Dragon Heroes friends.” saluted Jeremy.
“That’s a good boy. I will see you guys whenever I come back. Report anything what you see!”
“We’ll be back, you guys.” Said Charonus as he gives the peace sign.
They salute as Jimmy and Charonus departs for Tokyo, much to Jeremy’s dismay, who feels bummed, jealous, and envious that he wanted to go.
“Orders all ready!” The chef said as he sees Jimmy and Charonus disappeared. “What was that all about? What happened to your lion boss?”
“Our apologies…” Jeremy bows. “We can hold on to their sushis while we can eat ours. Thank you good sir for your sushi service.”
Sushi bows and nods. “Enjoy, and give your lion friend his receipt too.”
Jeremy, Klump, and Krusha sat down to eat their sushis as they are interrupted by screams from running workers of Nintendo HQ.
“What’s going on?” Asked Krusha.
“I don’t know, soldier.” Replied Klump.
Then all of the sudden, boom! Explosions took place, blazing up the the video game company, much to every citizens’ shock.
“Sweet mother of word!” Jeremy shouts with shock. “What was that!”
“I don’t know, but this isn’t good.” Krusha said with chattering teeth of fear as they look at each other.
Nintendo workers shouted, “Save our representatives! Our chiefs! Save them! Anybody! Save them!”
As everyone in the city are shaking in fear, Jeremy lands on the ground, with arrival of Krusha, and Klump.
“Have no fear, fellow citizens. We, Anthro League, will save the day!” Jeremy said with determination. “This is my childhood video game company that brought me and everyone pawesome video games over the years, so now we are going to return the favor of saving Nintendo!”
Hearing this, the Nintendo works and Kyoto citizens applaud Jeremy’s speech as Jeremy nods to Klump, and Krusha as they rush in to save the chiefs and representatives of Nintendo in the dangerous inferno with smokes that seem fierce.
Klump and Krusha both cough from the thickness of smokes that surrounds them.
“Uh, guys…” Coughed Klump. “I don’t think...I…can…do…t-this…” Klump says as he is about to pass out from lack of oxygen until Krusha tries to pick him up but is about to faint as well.
Jeremy lifted them up.
“Come on guys, we’re not going to give up! Have your scaly hands on to my forehead. I, in my dragon form right now, have elements. My light-spirit element should do the trick with heavenly powers to protect your oxygen for the good will.”
“Is that even possible, Jeremy? Like how?” Asked Krusha.
“Trust me and do have tiny bit of faith it will help you. Do it for me and Nintendo!”
They sigh with a little skeptical as they place their paws on his forehead until they start to feel different.
“Hey we can breathe again!” Klump said!
“It works as long as you believe a little, guys.” Jeremy said with a shrug. “Anyways, let us get moving! We don’t have much time! You guys save the representatives, I’ll save the chiefs.”
“Yes sir, sage Jeremy.” They salute as they walk around searching.
Jeremy crosses obstacles in the firey depths of the HQ as he uses each of his seven forms on certain steps of the obstacles he faces.
As he then returns to his dragon form, he begins to smell something.
“Hmmmm…” He sniffs again. “Mmhmm…”
As he runs to the door, he realizes it is locked. He tried each of his form to break it open, but nothing happened.
“Alright, my light-spirit element, give me the same powers as Heaven above to break this door!”
With the help of the mystical element power, he finally breaks the door much to his shock to see the important chiefs of Nintendo held hostage by a dark figure.
“Eheheheheh….” It chuckled wickedly.
“Who are you? Show yourself! Did you cause this attack?” Asked Jeremy.
“Well, well…The famous Jeremy. Shapeshifter with mystical powers from Heaven above, potential sage lord of the Anthros, Animals, and Dragons; we have met…” The figure said as it reveals itself to be a person with dark trench and sunglasses on.
“Let these poor innocent go!” Jeremy demanded with a roar.
“Not so fast, I didn’t even get to introduce myself. Such politeness you seem to have or not have?”
“Forget it! I am saving these childhood heroes of mine when it comes to video gaming, and restore this HQ with help of Heavenly Father on my side via light-spirit element!” He said as he rushes to their aid.
“Not so fast!” the person raised his gun and shoots at the floor near Jeremy’s feet.
“Turn back to your human form, and we will fight fairly.” He said.
“If that is the choice you wish…” Jeremy said as he closes his eyes, morphing to his human form. “Drop your gun to fight fair in return, too!”
“Nah, I set you up for this!” He said as he raised his gun at Jeremy, who is about to get ready to try to dodge. “Good bye Jeremy, as I will complete my mission for…”
Then all of the sudden, the ceiling broke open, with Klump, and Krusha landing the person’s arm as he pulls the trigger down to the floor, which the bullet ultimately missed Jeremy and the Nintendo chiefs.
“Nobody messes with our Jeremy of the Anthro League!” Krusha roars.
“You want a piece of us anthro, you meanie human!” Klump shouts as he holds the now disarmed person.
Jeremy then joins in to help them take him down.
“You forget, human, that I have friends, and we are taking you out right now!” He said as they keep beating him until they think they had enough of self-defense philosophy.
“Now you wait there until we call the authorities, and report this to Anthro League.
But then the person chuckles.
“You think you can beat me? You may report me to your pathetic animal whatever, but I have proper gadgets to get away from authorities of many kinds!” He remarked as he raised his gadget into the window, and uses a magnet to cling to a aircraft.
“Until then, I, Manny, servant of the Phantoms, will destroy all of you anthros!”
Krusha tries to run towards, but Jeremy holds him back.
“Let him go, dude. We got to get these chiefs out of here!” He said.
Chapter 4: Hero’s Welcome, and Greetings of the Fans
Frolicking through the flames with all their might, the new Anthro League recruits made it out of the Nintendo HQ with the chiefs in their protection, the news reporters, Nintendo workers, representatives, and citizens surround the area as they cheer for them for such bravery for saving the day.
“Thank you, Jeremy, for saving us, but sadly there goes our HQ, which has been around for years.” Said the CEO.
“Oh, have no worries, I will pray with the help of my light-spirit element to restore it through heavenly powers.” Jeremy bows his head as he prays with his shining body via light-spirit element as everyone turned to see the burning building is restored as nothing happened, nor lost.
Everybody all cheer.
“See you, if you have a little bit of faith and believe, miracles through heavenly experience do happen.” Jeremy says as he bows.
“Well, thank you Jeremy, now we can go back to work. Oh if you want, would you like to have a permanent position for heroicness?” He asked.
Hearing this, Jeremy gets excited. “Oh yes sir! I’d love to! I am a voice actor, writer, and aspiring producer! I am a freelancer to all above, and would love to help with all these passionate specialties of entertainment I do!”
“Alright, then you are welcome to do so when we need your help with future games when we need you! Welcome to Nintendo as associate worker, Jeremy! Anything else we like to return?” He asked.
“Nah, for now I am good. You all may go back to work in peace.” Jeremy smiles as he bows respectfully.”
As the Nintendo workers, representatives, and chiefs go back to their HQ, all of the sudden the screams of excitement becomes rowdy and approaching. Jeremy turns to see.
“Jeremy! Jeremy! Are you the Jeremy of that action packed viral video of a prom in 2013 that is on YouTube? Where is Spyro? Jeremy that voice acted and motion-captured for animes, kaijus, tokusatsus?. Are you the anthro that shapeshifts? You a voice actor? Writer? You wrote The Prophecy of Otherkins? Did you really say you want to learn producing? Tell us! We loyal fans swear we keep you protected!” They all continue to ask him.
“Why hello my loyal, dear, precious fans of Japan! As long as you keep up with my international official loyal fan base, humans and anthros alike regardless of differences, especially new fans, incase you do not know and vow to keep secrets from general public and paparazzi, yes it is I who you are looking for.” Jeremy said with a bow, and smile.
They ask him for autographs as they protect him from paparazzi and general public.
“What is going on here?” Asked Krusha. “Did I miss something about Jeremy?”
“I am not sure, but it seems he does have a lot of people who know and love him.” Klump replied.
“I concur.” Krusha nodded in agreement.
As time goes by dusk, all the fans of Jeremy hang around him with Klump, and Krusha. Jeremy continues to explain his story that is up to date.
“So now that I am an associated member of Nintendo, and a loyal agent/soldier to Jimmy Lionheart, I believe my life from voice acting to writing to being recruited could get much better and well improved!” He said as Jimmy arrived back to the city.
“Hey you guys, we are back. What is going on here?” Jimmy asked.
“Jeremy has a lot of fans, which is cool! Did you know that?” Asked Krusha.
“Oh my, wow. I am so happy for that I not only recruited him, but seeing he has a fanbase? Wow! Anyways, we got to go to Tokyo! Tell your fans that you will see them later, Jeremy.” He said.
“Awww they can come to if they want, please my dear boss?” He said with innocent eyes.
“Okay, they have permission to come. More people for the concert, the better!”
“Concert? What concert?” Asked Jeremy.
“I’ll tell you on the way. Hop in.” Jimmy asked. “Charonus is already there FYI, guys.”
“Okay, we are coming.” Said Klump.
They get in as all the fans gather up to get into their vehicles as they follow them down the road.
“So, who is performing tonight at Tokyo?” Asked Jeremy.
“Nightriders. They performed at Hawaii, which I attended to see.”
“Nightriders?! Oh my word,” Jeremy shouted with hyperness. “I been wanting to see them since I was a senior back in high school, now my dream has come true! I also would love to perform with them someday too! As much as I am a voice actor and writer, as well aspiring producer; I would also like to see if I could launch my music career, so I could collaborate with them some day like Adam Lambert is with my favorite band Queen!”
“Oh, your friend asked if you could check out the show, because Dragon Heroes are going to perform with them again like they did at Haw…”
Hearing this, Jeremy gasps. “Wait what?! My friend and Dragon Heroes are going to perform with them and not me?! I don’t want to watch the show then, I want to perform with them! That is hardly a democracy pronouncement, and it is not fair!”
“What do you mean, Jeremy? Don’t you want to watch? I don’t know what they will think, especially Nightriders, and…” Jimmy said until Jeremy begins to cry like a baby.
“Please, Jimmy….I want to perform with them too! It is not fair that they get to perform with them, and not me without them inviting me over! This already making me more jealous and envious now that they performed with them back in Hawaii, and I didn’t know and they could’ve just told me! I would just rather kill myself out of embarrassment right now if I don’t get to perform with Nightriders, my 2nd favorite band from high school! And my fans will be very upset at Dragon Heroes, and would damage their reputation I fear if I’d die tat I can’t perform! Please, Jimmy, please! I would do anything to perform with Nightriders too! You know? As much as I am kind of jealous and envious that you and Charonus went to Tokyo to see them, me, Klump, and Krusha saved Nintendo from this henchmen of some Phantoms, and I think somebody deserves a big treat reward! Performing with the Nightriders! Please, Jimmy, I am begging you right now! At least help me, your loyal agent/soldier, here to make his dreams come more true! Do it for me, and for my fans sake!”
Jimmy feels hesistant, but after hearing his new loyal agent/soldier’s pleas, and don’t want to hear him commit suicide over everything he just said, Jimmy nods.
“Okay, I will help you perform with Nightriders tonight. You are also right that friends like that should ask their friends if they can perform with them too. And because you did report to me right now about new villains, and that you saved one of the greatest video game companies on the planet, you deserve to be treated with the reward of performing with Nightriders. You can also ask the Nightriders if they could do the Hawaii concert with you to make up their show with the Dragon Heroes over there.”
“Oh thank you, Jimmy! Thank you so much! This could also be a treat for my fans too, not only seeing me trying out music for an additional entertainment career, but also introducing them to Nightriders! That would help Nightriders too!” Jeremy gives his lion boss as tight hug, feeling much better and sniffles from all the crying and wipes all of his tears.
“You’re a good young lad, Jeremy. But however, don’t ever think of suicide, as like you said earlier, it will makes things worse, and everyone around you won’t get over it. You are better than that, my loyal agent, Jeremy. I can get you therapy if you need as we have plenty of therapists in the Anthro League. Just know that you are special, and you are loved just the same as everyone else.” Jimmy added.
“Thanks again, Jimmy!” Jeremy said. “I will consider them for the future reference too.”
Jeremy smiles with a sigh of relief as he can hardly wait to start his music career being added to his entertainment careers list in voice acting and writing, yet has to learn producing too. Jimmy then turned to Klump and Krusha at the back seats.
“Klump, and Krusha, would you two like to perform with the Nightriders too?” He asked.
“Ah nah, we are good. Not the best performers, I believe.” Krusha replied.
“Can sing, but not very well, and I prefer watching than performing. But we can help Jeremy gain more audience and fans support, so that way the lad would have a faster growing fanbase than the mainstream artists we have today!” Klump said.
Hearing this, Jeremy agrees with a smile.
“Awww guys, you don’t have to do that. What if it could insult or hurt feelings to the Dragon Heroes?”
Upon hearing that, Jeremy’s smile turns to concern, feeling Jimmy might be right on that.
“Jimmy, look out there.” Klump said as they view all of Jeremy’s fans of Japan from Kyoto already traveling with them to Kyoto. “They’re coming too, and they are his fans."
“I am still not sure of this…” Jimmy said nervously.
As the Anthro League leader, and new recruits are almost to Tokyo, all of the fans traveling next to them one by one.
“I wonder what Jeremy wants us to do in Tokyo? Maybe an award induction for voice acting and writing? Motion capture award? Anime award? Induction to Hall of Fame? Whatever it is, we, his loyal fans and international fanbase, both anthro and human, let us keep following him, protect his identity for him, and keep the paparazzi away from him! Anything for our Jeremy!” They said in unification as they continue to travel next to the Anthro League vehicle.
