It's been a year since I've last updated this blog, mostly as I'm tried to re-direct traffic for The Blue Rose stories to our new Facebook page. But since we've posted last this much has occured:

1) The Blue Rose is now on" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Facebook, with frequent posting and chapter previews to fully support the reader base.

2) A fourth story, Play to Remember, was published in late ...

Website tweaks

Posted by godaironin on January 4, 2015 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (5)

Final adjustments to the website to get the third story posted. We're using to contruct the page and unfortunately changed formatting tools mid-stream through the project so some pages will not look consistent with others. Oh, well. At least it's now all finally up, with graphics on most if not all pages.

3rd Story Complete!

Posted by godaironin on December 3, 2014 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (9)

I've sadly neglected while putting all effort into completing Blue Rose #3: The Awakening. As of November 25th, Story #3 is happily finished and I'm  now back to reinforcing this site to support what are now a battery of good EVA novels and novellas.

In the coming months I will be making a few changes to this website in order to better support the works that I've...

The Blue Rose 3 Third Act

Posted by godaironin on January 24, 2014 at 2:05 AM Comments comments (14)

I've started to post the remaining chapters to the Third Act of BR3, we should have that portion of the story up by early March and then at FFN a few weeks later. Work is also proceeding on the Forth Act, which will be the climax of the story, followed by resolutions and conclusions. I'm giving nothing away except that I don't expect to have the Fourth Act in any publishable form until late spring. If the conclusions take as long as they might this story might not be complete until Fall of th...

Pacific Rim vs. Evangelion

Posted by godaironin on July 24, 2013 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (2)

I saw Pacific Rim two weeks ago and I am still floored. It's an incredible film, managing to capture the inspiration of Japanese Tokusatsus while fusing it with Western blockbuster syle. It's a powerful work, capturing you quickly and making you really cheer for the characters on-screen. There's a certain amount of bad-asssery in PR that you don't seen in the recent set of comic-book based te...

Second Story Arc of Blue Rose #3

Posted by godaironin on March 25, 2013 at 3:25 AM Comments comments (3)

The second story arc of the third Blue Rose story, conisting of chapters 17 through 29, is now complete and posted on this website. There will be some slight adjustements as I sort through minor errors and probably some updating of the graphics but the story is more or less here, and we are about fifty percent through the novel.

This is proving to be a very challenging project due to the scope and my own time restraints. As I'm writing this in stages I expect to see another ...

Evangelion 3.0 released in Japan

Posted by godaironin on November 20, 2012 at 6:15 PM Comments comments (5)

On Saturday November 17th, the third of the New Movie Editions of Evangelion, You Can (Not) Redo, was released in Japan to record-setting crowds.  Tightly kept under wraps, there were a lot of rumors around concerning what the plot was and if there were any new characters in the new film. The prevaling assumption was that 3.0 would follow the pattern set by the preceding two films that generally followed the plotline of the original series yet introduced a relatively small ...

The first story arc of Blue Rose 3: The Awakening is finally complete and will posted to this site in early October. Following that I will start to post segments at FFN and other sites where I have my work.  

The third story is proving to be lengthy, the first arc alone is over 75,000 words. The second arc is currently in Alpha awaiting serious editing, while the third arc I expect to start writing the first draft in early November.

With a lot of luck and availa...

Site Redesign and Progress on Story #3

Posted by godaironin on September 7, 2012 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (1)

The website is undergoing some remodeling to create a fresh image and also prepare for Story #3. Story #3 is considerably longer than one or two, and may reach 500 total pages when finally complete. This is a full-blown Evangelion sequel/reboot and as such we are carefully working out the world of our characters.

Due to its length Story #3 is being written in three Arcs. Arc A is currently in second draft and is awaiting final beta reading. Once the beta is done we will do final ...

Christianity in Neon Genesis Evangelion

Posted by godaironin on August 5, 2012 at 9:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Are there actual undertones of Christianity within Evangelion? When this question comes up, most EVA otaku cite the long-ago interview with Assistant Director Tsurumaki, wherein he says the Christianity in EVA was done solely for aesthetic reasons. In a country where the official religions are both Buddhism and Shintoism, Christian motifs and symbolism had the effect of seeming exotic to the Japanese, especially when you start getting to the Book of Revelations and all of the en...
