New Steampunk Anime from Japan

I just come across a new Steampunk Anime from japan.

Unbreakable Machine Doll

During the early 20th century, along with technological advancements, scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic. The combination of science and sorcery was Makinot, circuits made from spells that were put into objects to bring them to life and even gain a personality. It was developed as a military weapon and has now spread throughout the world. Akabane Raishin is now attending the Royal Academy to become the best in the world. Accompanied by the lovely teenage girl Yaya, who is actually Raishin’s puppet weapon, he plans on rocketing to the top of the class. However, his test scores come nearly dead last although his combat skills and determination are second to none. Raishin has to compete with the deadliest of classmates if he wants to come out as the king.

At the moment it’s in Japanese with English fan subs but it’s still watch-able.

Scripting a sword Fight Part II.

Scripting a sword Fight Part II.

 

It’s turning out to be hard work as alot of the old information in missing or not published (or the old books are kept hidden away.)

However the following have been of very interesting use.

First up, Reclaiming the Blade by Anchor bay studio,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0037B2WLE/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Is an interesting documentary on how the art of sword fighting is slowly being lost and what others are doing to bring it back. It also has a section on sword construction.

Next up

Old Sword play.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A3IV6XY/ref=oh_d__o01_details_o01__i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Is an Ebook that contains lots of poses, stances and moves that are used by sword fighters and is based on the works of the old masters from the 1500’s onwards.

I’m still struggling through making each of the sixteen fights different and it is a struggle. (I will have to do this again in four books time.)

I still have second thoughts over adding this chapter but until I finish, I wont have the clear picture.

Thank you for following.
