flying detective

Caracal also known as desert lynx, can survive for long periods without water. Their ears are larger than other big cats, allowing them to navigate preys and escape danger better. They are known for their bird-catching abilities and because of their good sense of hearing they can easily detect birds flying, even birds with specially adapted feathers for silent flight like owl. Altogether, with their long legs and big paws they can leap up into the air to successfully catch their prey.

I’m still so absolutely blown away by all the support on the original Haikyuu/Bungou Stray Dogs intro crossover I did (seriously you guys are all so lovely and wonderful and amazing I can’t express), and it inspired me to make an alternate version!

Hello, hello, me again! And this time I brought WING FIC BOIIIIIIIIIIIIII

I’ve had this one up my sleeve a while but it’s taken a while to get post-ready. I’m still convinced there’s a lot more I could have done with it, so maybe I’ll come back to it one day, but for now I’m fairly happy with where it’s at so I’m just gonna go for it!

Now this one’s a lil’ unusual- I’m not actually going to post a version of the fic here. instead, I’m gonna link DIRECTLY TO THE AO3 VERSION. Reason being that I discovered how to make linked footnotes and got a lil’ Pratchett with it. Well, maybe Pratchett is giving myself too much credit. I got carried away with being a lil’ smartass. You don’t actually have to read the footnotes, they’re not essential to the story, if you wanna ignore them and enjoy the flow of the story as you read it you can- but they’re a nice lil’ extra and I don’t feel right posting the fic without them, hence no tumblr version.

Anyway, I hope you like! Enjoy, and thanks for reading in advance! 

Luv ya guys! <3

i was wondering

who would win in a fight

maka with a giant scythe, can transform soul and fly, detect where you are, she fought Asura

lizzy with two swords, she fought a demon, and she’s a normal human so that’s pretty badass

anna can invoke demons and spirits, read your mind and she kicked God in his private parts

1916 09 17  The first victory of MvR - Alex Hamilton

detail


17 September 1916
Victory #1    When patrol flying I detected shrapnel clouds in direction of Cambrai. I hurried forth and met a squad which I attacked shortly after 1100. I singled out the last machine and fired several times at closest range (ten metres). Suddenly the enemy propeller stood stock still. The machine went down gliding and I followed until I had killed the observer who had not stopped shooting until the last moment.
   Now my opponent went downwards in sharp curves. At approximately 1,200 metres a second German machine came along and attacked my victim right down to the ground and then landed next to the English plane.

A lot of people is under the impression that the 2007 Skull Man anime was a prequel to Cyborg 009. That’s not true at all. Like Kazuhiko Shimamoto’s Skull Man, the anime is actually a huge homage to all Shotaro Ishinomori’s works. Yeah, Brain Gear is obviously Black Ghost. Yeah, Van Vogt, Helen and Gamo are there. Yeah, Skull and baby Joe. But those are not the only references in the series. Here I listed some characters from other works that appear in the series as well:

Hayato Ichimonji from Kamen Rider

Inspector Tachiki from the original Skull Man manga

President Kuroshio from The Flying Ghost Ship

Tsuyoshi Shinjo from Robot Keiji

Keitaro Shinjo from Robot Keiji

Maya Chisato from the original Skull Man

Bijinder from Kikaider

Waruder from Kikaider

And then, like Brain Gear was a nod to Black Ghost, the New Humanity from the ending is actually the Neo Human Empire from Inazuman. Yeah, there’s two different translations for it, but they’re actually the same. The original spelling being 新人類 (Shin Jin Rui).

So, I know Cyborg 009 is one of the most well known Ishinomori series in the west, so it’s easy to think the series had any connection to it. But that is only a tribute to the entire Ishinomori’s career, not meant to be taken in the same continuity.
