[On this lovely spring evening, Maria is standing by the barrier, regarding it thoughtfully, suitcase in hand.]

... I was beginning to think this time would never come.

((Made this mostly because Crow asked, but it's open to everyone, on the off chance that anyone else wants a goodbye thread. Open unto eternity and so on.))

The Sakura Wars TV series has been re-released as a complete set for under $30. Pretty good for a 25-episode series. So, you know, if you have ever wanted to buy it...

For people who don't like buying stuff (and also, well, pretty much everyone), I also recommend the Let's Play of the first game. It is hilarious.

I just hope enough people buy it that NIS decides it's a good idea to bring over the earlier games as well.

so do you like bandwagons? 'cause I like bandwagons. hooray, network spam.

onthebattlefield: (keep talking)
There -- now we have somewhere a bit more private in which to converse.

I thought we ought to have a place to talk privately.

So, whatever anonymous entity bought Maria paid time + icons? Thanks so much! ♥ Is there anything I can do for you in return? Admittedly I'm not much good at any of the usual fandom things except writing really dumb drabbles (... and translating things from Japanese, which I suspect you don't need), but I always feel I should offer anyway.

So my webhost told me no more filesharing, and yet I still want to pimp my canon. Thus I have availed myself of SendSpace in order to bring you my thrilling tale of magical mech-piloting actresses. Go forth, download and enjoy and app my canonmates, plz!

hey guys

I have an mmmwhatchasay video

For my own easy reference, a complete list of the plays the Teikoku Kagekidan has put on, what they were based on (where not obvious), and Maria's role in them (if any).

Long list is loooong. )

In conclusion, the plays are as anachronistic as everything else in the series (we can perform plays which won't be written for thirty or forty more years!), and whoever made the casting decisions was often high while doing so. \o/ I love my canon.

((Aaand one last all-purpose IC interaction post. \o/ Comment here at any time if there's anything you want to do with Maria.))
onthebattlefield: (moment of silence)
For anyone who cares (i.e. no one), I'm working on redoing Maria's icons so that I don't hate them all anymore. As such, old threads will appear to have Maria shooting people in the face a lot. \o/ ... Maybe I should change my default icon.

God, this app is awful. Seriously, guys, how did it end up with 85%? You are all insane.

Character: Maria Tachibana
Series: Sakura Taisen
Character Age: 20
Canon: Set in an alternate 1920's Japan full of anachronistic technology, Sakura Taisen is a series that answers the age-old question of what would happen if the members of the Takarazuka Revue (an all-female musical theatre troupe) also piloted giant robots to fight against demons. Because everything's better with giant robots.

Maria is one of the most senior members of the Teikoku Kagekidan, and its vice-commander. Formerly a Russian revolutionary, then a bodyguard for the mafia (and all before she was eighteen, too), Maria's experiences have made her tough, unemotional, extremely competent with a gun, and prone to starting sentences with "On the battlefield..." Of course, since Sakura Taisen is actually a harem anime of sorts based on a dating sim (no, really), she has a soft and fluffy center beneath her cold exterior, but she doesn't let it be seen very often.

(Note: I will be playing her primarily from the TV series, though her characterization doesn't vary much between the approximately 9,999 versions of her canon.)

Sample Post:

Generally, evil does not isolate itself far from civilization. It goes where there are people: people it can prey on, whose weaknesses it can exploit. The biggest cities cast the biggest shadows, so to speak; swamps like this one tend to cast almost none at all. Besides, I suspect evil prefers the comforts of civilization to camping in the wilderness, but that is beside the point.

That said, however, it seems there really are exceptions to every rule, because this place is quite overrun with demons of all sorts, some of which are rather... verbal. At least they seem to be far weaker than the ones back in Tokyo, even if there are more of them. I should have little trouble keeping them at bay. I do find it rather distressing, however, that I can't seem to make contact with the base from here. Every time I attempt to radio them, I only get a voice saying something about a "database error." Technology may not be my area of expertise, but I doubt that that is a good sign.

At least I seem to be rid of the crocodile demons that were accosting me earlier. They are particularly talkative -- one of them asked me if I thought love could bloom on the battlefield, of all things. Of course, I believe that on the battlefield, personal affection is only a liability, but I decided to shoot the creature rather than waste my breath attempting to explain my point of view. Talking to them rarely seems to have any effect, in my experience, but bullets to the face seem to get their attention.

-- ah, it seems one of the crocodile creatures has returned. Well, actually, most likely it isn't one of the ones from before, as it doesn't appear to have been shot. Besides which, I don't recall any of them walking on hind legs and carrying a gun. This one does talk as well, though --

... No, I am fairly sure that in Russia, crocodile did not, in fact, shoot me.
