Takuto (Indie Anime Series)
« on: November 29, 2008, 09:13:20 PM »
Series Description: Takuto has a dream to become a pro mage, but the problem is that he's failed the exams for the school he wants to join for three consecutive years. He will now try for his fourth year.


Scene from Episode 6

Within Takuto a Professional Magician is kind of like a way to describe a kung fu artist that has the ability to cast magic to help him out in a Match. Battling or Fighting is played as a Competitive Sport. Not the dark way you might think (like to the death), but rather a fun bright and exciting game.

To be able to become a Professional, it would mean that you have to get into the rosers within the 'Big Leagues'. Takuto has definitely been inspired by competitive sports, in that the uniqueness of every character is brought to light through their styles and techniques of battle.


Takuto and another certain someone, Episode 4 ending is where I finally bought a tablet.

The magic of the world works through Astrology. There are three signs for each element that determine your magical ability or element. Fire is Aries Lea and Saggitarius. Earth is Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Air is Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Water is Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

New Part entitled "Within the Trees of the Town" released.

Thanks,
Mark  :oops:

Please mods tell me if I'm being intrusive with the double posts. I could always suspend my updates to something like once every week instead of every day.

It's just that these Parts have already been completed so they are released every day rather than every week (it will persist with 2-4 more parts quickly, then have a slow down to about 1-2 parts a week)

Thanks, it's used in Part 1, which was originally just the Intro. (it was actually going to be a Game at first rather than a Machinima, but I can't get as much of the story done that way first of all, and second of all I just want to compose to something. ;p

Yes, squirrels. x_x Because Juno, the second to main character in the beginning, is an idiot. He's like a male fairy-tale cinderella. x_x



Another update, and Rieves or whomever else is a mod of this forum, please tell me if it is being too spammy to update daily. The thing is, once I get to about....Part 10 or 11 say...I won't be able to update every day anymore.

o.0 when I read this story I nearly thought it was an anime I was watching(Macademi Wasshoi) because the main character is also called Takuto and he also happens to be a quite a good magician as well lol.
The wind will cease to be one day, and as I pass, what marks remain?
Graduation is not the end, we'll still be friends from here on out

Updated.

I have gone from Comic to Video Webcomic to Movie, but I have always intended it to be an Anime Series.

That is what it is now, for the most part. :-)

O.o

these are amazing...
A letter, a word
...
A sentence, a paragraph
...
A page, a story
...
A book, a novel.
...
They all mean so little when you can't take time to put your soul into the work.

That 'best drawing' is the most unreadable one of all.
