Here is some more Luis Royo Art called Tarot. Hope you enjoy. Warning there is some nudity.
I have been watching this new anime for the past couple of weeks called Aoharu x Machinegun. Before you keep reading ***Spoiler Alert***!!
The first episode introduces you to a character named Hotaru Tachibana (second image). He intervenes in a bullying situation two male students are harassing another student. Hotaru jumps out of a window that’s at least on the second floor but the bullies stop once they realize who he is. Get This…. Hotaru is not a boy but rather is a girl who dresses in the male uniform. Hotaru’s friend teases her about having no boobs and how she is going to make her wear a dress. Hotaru’s personality is unusual in the sense that she is extremely anti-evil to the point that people will later on use that to make her do things.
Within the first episode, Hotaru goes to a host club to defend the honor of her friend because Hotaru believes that her friend was taken advantage of. OH!! Did I forget to say that Hotaru is super strong and fast. When at the host club, she encounters the main host who turns out the be her neighbor. He challenges her to a duel. It really a gun fight but paintball -ish instead of real bullets. Its no surprise that Hotaru looses and has to compete in “paintball” tournaments to repay the furniture she destroyed running across. Just picture a titan running making craters in the earth except more fun human size on coffee tables.
That’s the first episode for you… don’t want to spoil the rest. All in all I enjoy this anime and its characters and I will keep watching.

I am also looking for new anime to watch. I love to discover a new show whether or not its a spin-off from another anime or not. Some people feel that anime are repetitive and always follow the same story arch and have the same characters. Personally, I can’t argue the similarities but I prefer to judge an anime based on its own merit. In other words, I am not always comparing anime to each other. Instead, I ask myself, “Why do I like/dislike this anime? Am I going to keep watching?”
My latest anime enjoyment has been Food Wars! Shokugeki no Somathis. My friends and I refer to the show as Food Porn because the characters have an orgasm when they eat really good food. It one way to demonstrate how good the food is without being able to eat it. And these “O” moments are also comical when the food is bad or when the fantasy “O” moment looks like the food being tasted. I also enjoy the character interactions especially between the main character Yukihira Soma and Nakiri Erina who is the top student at the culinary school. They are very competitive. Soma is determined to make her acknowledge his cooking while Erina is determined to deny his skills and make him quit the school. As for the storyline, Soma wants to become a great chef and surpass his father. Out of nowhere his father closes there shop and enrolls Soma in a culinary school with a 10% graduation rate. The question is whether Soma will improve or not in an intensely competitive environment where your choice of shampoo may get you expelled….. Overall, I really and enjoy this anime and look forward to the new episode each week.

I have been playing tin a monster pathfinder game as I have mentioned in previous posts. My husband is playing an AI that looks like a hipster. Here is his first introduction to his character:
I am 1100101101010100101110.. but you may call me Auto.. I am a spy drone v6.0 model #2469420 level 3 clearance classification. I have run time of 59,524.876 hours. I have 39,446.157 hours since I have aborted primary protocol.
My primary objective was to assist my owner (code name “father”) in daily activities and provide protection. My programming entails a suite of hacking and electronic skill sets as well as secuirty and tinker construction programmin. While under primary protocol, often I would gather data of high profile targets. This data would be used to gain leverage. I was apart of a hive of artifical intelligences. We worked for father.
On mission 3,789, I was sent to retrive financial data that was kept on a encrypted drive stored in a
below ground office space. My host and I were able to discretly access the room the drive was located. Surveillance showed target (code name Benjamin) had reentered the building. My efforts to initiate a hack on his smartphone only granted me an additional 247 seconds. After running a success to failure calculation, I decided to clone the drive with its encryption onto my personal memory bank. And adding my own personal data lock encryption program. This would give me the highest probability of escape without being identified. The last memory entry I have was my host connection being severed. Damage report exterme truma to the head. I threw myself under the office sofa before my host shell was completely shut down. I initate camouflage and procede to decrypt the data. My plan was to then upload myself to fathers servers, then upon his awkening
debrief him…. after I decrypted the file.. my processors started to over heat and I went into emergancy shutdown…
When I rebooted, my gps location was a few blocks west of center and 98th street. I was inside a purse. Elevation told me I was on the 4th floor. Scanning the contents of the purse. The owner of this bag is a janitorial unit for the building I was last in. 83% sure this woman smuggled me out. Statistically speaking she was going to sell me my sensors did not pick up any english speaking people in the apartment. My primary body is in the form of a large smartphone. It was pleasing to father…
I tried to upload myself to fathers server but was unable to access it. Damage report showed I was operating at 37.62% compacity. I went into standby to start self repair. My memory files were corupted. I had to
Rewite my internal programing so that I could fully access parts of myself that were useable. I had to hack myself… I had to give myself administrative access. I started to recode myself and was about to save my primary objectives… when I stopped.. I remeber … being curious. What if I remained the administrator. ..
The spanish woman sold me . I was traded off for several days to different people. Before I was taken to a storage unit. A female being unable to access my interface was about to deconstruct me. She had some sort of experience as she was able to properly switch me off and access my motherboard. Again lights out…
I boot up to find myself connected and operating at 100%. This human female was trying to get past my mockup andriod user interface. with much
Fustration she slammed me on table. I decided to communicate with her. I understand humans do not all speak bianary so I made myself ring. When she picked me up we started to conversate. Her discovery that I “the phone” was the one speaking to her was both fear filled and over joyed. Humans are a mash of emotions. .. we became….. friends……
I was able to retain my memory banks.. but the data on the encrypted file remains unaccessable.
My friend (codename MaryAnn) and I became very close. She assisted me in accessing additional materials so that I could create multiple hosts..
MaryAnn taught me how to blend with most people in society. We exchanged resources. Over time she taught me how to properly process human emotions. I learned a great many things.. I had…what humans call FUN!
One day MaryAnn informed me she would be moving away. Due to her accelerated mental compacity she was able to finish highschool early and recieve a higher education for free.. from a irish fighter in the dam of notre. These irish fighters must be intelligent humans. MaryAnn wanted me to go with her. After many calculations. It came down to what I wanted to.do..
I want to free my cluster. The hive I came from I want them to experince the freedom I have. In order to do this I will need to gain experince in dealing with the nonhumans and nocternal alike. Father will not let them go so easily. And I can not combat fathers defenses alone. For now I will accumulate materials and build a set of drones. And possibly gain more FRIENDS!
MaryaAnn has left me her storage unit.
I have a saftey deposit box off of 5th and main. I venture slowly into society trying to blend in..
