So, the NL and EN tags are the ones actually used in the story. If it’s listed for both then it’s a shorthand I’m using to note which of the characters is which. Where no name for ‘both’ is included I haven’t used a name for both. (Expect this list to get updated per chapter!)

Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay ’til death. Whoever settles, never leaves.

Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children’s bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened or the consequences will be too terrible to bear.

The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into dark, medieval practices of the distant past.

In chapter 31: Grim and company decide they must try and react out to the nearest town to get help. They cannot cross the town border and shooting massive quantities of fireworks attracts no attention whatsoever. We also learn a little more about the Witch and her motives. AT LAST.

WARNING: There are rather graphic descriptions of torture in this post. Also did you think we were done with the misogyny in this book? It’s about to return. With a vengeance. Also more fatphobia.

Note: Due to the fact that Olde Heuvelt made significant changes to the final two chapters of the book, this post contains two chapters in order to cover the same events. These are the final chapters of the book. As I’ll note below, due to the number of changes, I’ve split the discussion up in “What happens in the English version” and “What happens in the Dutch version” after the point where the stories go in different directions.

It’s been almost a week since I actually livetweeted these! I’m so very sorry about the delay — I’ve been a combination of busy and unwell — but I’m here now!

This time, rather unexpectedly given that I’d promised to make a schedule for these, I tackled the second musical: Usagi – The Path to Become the Soldier of Love. You can read my responses here! I hope you’ll enjoy the gif of Kaolinite especially because I think I lost, like, an hour trying to get it sorted since, apparently, the only way to capture a gif with the software I use is to screencap the section you want frame-by-frame and then adding them into Photoshop, turning on the animation feature and, from what I could tell in that instance, having to set all the frames to be only one 1 frame separately. But go look at that gif. It was so worth it.

Anyway! This musical has… even less of a coherent plot than the first one I watched and feels more like a set of songs around which people had to write some kind of faintly coherent plot, which is something you’ll either love or hate.

Me, for all that I gripe about it, I think it’s absolutely gloriously 90s. Considering I was watching this for the express purpose of cheering myself up by revelling in Sailor Moon goodness, it did exactly what I wanted it to do.

Just… don’t go into these expecting a super-coherent plot. There’s some character-building, but if you don’t already know… any coherent variant of Sailor Moon up to the Death Busters arc, this is quite sparse on the details. Heck, I like to think I know the overall narratives pretty well and I was confused a lot.

That said, if you’re looking for a musical that’s just plain fun and that the actors all clearly had a blast with that’s capable of cheering you up, this is a fun, fun musical to watch. Especially if you’re a Sailor Moon fan. Or I don’t know, if you like the challenge of piecing a story together from fragments.

You can read all about it on the Storify here if you’ve missed the TOTALLY UNANNOUNCED (because I’m just that brilliant) livetweets of watching Sera Myu.

Many thanks to Sea of Serenity for the fansubbed version!

That was… not what I was expecting. I am not kidding when I say I’ve never seen the musicals before now. The most I know about them is what I’ve gleaned from listening to the songs, but I’ve never had context for those songs and reading translations of the lyrics only gets you so far, really.

I didn’t know that the musical was going to stay so close to the anime this is an AU sequel to and that surprised me. What also surprised me (pleasantly) was seeing a few scenes and moments that I recognised from La Reconquista. I don’t know if the newer musical drew inspiration from this one deliberately, but I kind of hope so because they’re just small subtle things that I want to see as homages to this musical.

Yes, I did gripe about the plot a fair bit, but, really, it did have a number of weird holes in it that could’ve easily been addressed. And possibly were in the 1994 revision, but as I understand it the musical was never released on video, so I don’t know if I could find a fansub for it anywhere.

Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed the livetweets as much as I’ve enjoyed the musical! XD Next time I’ll try and actually announce when I’m going to be livetweeting stuff and it’ll be the next musical available to me: Sailor Moon S – Usagi Ai no Senshi e no Michi.

Wherein we’ll get to meet Chibi-Usa! That much I do know!

I’ll… try and work out a schedule for these and get that posted up, so it’ll be easier to catch me livetweeting.

In chapter 30: Everyone freaked out over the fact that someone freed the Wyler Witch and there is utter chaos. The Wyler Witch kidnapped a young boy and a young girl and this seems to make her thoroughly happy. Also she tries to tell Gemelda what to do, but Gemelda doesn’t get it and messes up.

First of all: are you looking for an all-queer large ensemble cast political high fantasy story? Because that’s what City of Strife is and it is absolutely glorious and you may very well love it to little bits and pieces the way that I did. (Except a couple of particular characters that are not lovable. Especially not the git who hurt my precious purest too good for this world adorbs cinnamon roll. NO FORGIVENESS. No one hurts the precious cinnamon roll. NO ONE. But, uh, anyway. Let’s… move on, shall we. I have feels about that one scene.)

In chapter 29: We finally get to see events from Jo’s perspective. Alas, but she is totally frantic and tried to kill herself and then not-kill herself by making her way back to her home town. She also kidnapped her living son from hospital effectively and turned her father into a co-conspirator and he caved and almost drove his daughter and grandson all the way to town before the creepy horror magic drove him away.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of Hello World and it started off hitting one of my pet peeves. It’s first person and Scott adamantly refused to tell us who he was trying to find (or why) for ages and I really hate first person coy-about-motivation narratives. Just tell the reader, damn it. Or at least give us a clear reason why the narrator can’t.

That aside, though, I zoomed through this book in, what, one whole sitting? Maybe two. But very quickly. It’s a lot of fun to read. Scott is a great anti-hero, getting roped into protecting the world from an evil corporation, while Sonia is a fantastically sassy, sarcastic foil to his antisocial behaviour and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them bounce off one another and find themselves growing closer as time passed.

I would have liked a little more detail on the world and the differences to ours when it comes to technology because, at the end of the book, I still wasn’t quite sure how HIDs were supposed to work or why Sonia didn’t respond the way HIDs are programmed to. I hope that this is something that will come up in future books in the series, but it was something that I’d really really have preferred to learn in this one.

But. Like I said, this book is a great romp through Europe. Scott is snarky and curt and, while he certainly pretends not to care about the rest of the world, he kind of does. I loved watching him struggle with the kind of person he thinks he is, or had to become, and the kind of person he really is as well as with the changes that Sonia brings into his life.

It’s a fast-paced near-future thriller, so expect several great action moments among the quiet. As I read, I could easily imagine this getting rewritten for a film and, honestly, I would be all over that. It would be glorious and so much fun to watch, so if you’re a visual reader who pictures films as they read? Oh, the treat you’re in for. I envy you. It’ll be glorious. <3 Rose and Tauber have a great balance between scenes with a lot of action and quieter, more tender scenes and I loved the pacing. It feels just right and the ending is suitably creepy.

I loved the stakes of the story and how they shifted and changed as Scott adjusted his sense of who he is and who he wants to be. I loved that it didn’t wrap everything up in neat little bows and everything neat and tidy. And… I feel like I keep repeating myself, really, and this book deserves so much better than that. I had a blast reading it. If you’re looking for snarky, sarcastic protagonists in a near-future thriller setting, this is a terrific book and I highly, highly recommend it.

I enjoyed it a lot. ^_^
