Notes: The K-On! characters aren't created or owned by me. All credit goes to the creator (s), studios, and everybody else that made K-ON!. This is a story that I originally wrote for Fanfiction.net. I hope that you enjoy this story.

Mio was sleeping. She was wearing purple pants and a pink shirt. Mio got a text that woke her up. Azusa sent a text to Mio telling her that school was about to start! Mio had overslept. Mio put on her school clothes and ate a muffin. Mio hurried to school.

Mio ran to class which is something that she rarely does. Mio found Ritsu. Mio said "Ristu am I late?"

Ristu said "No."

Mio said "Thank goodness."

Ristu said "I'm joking. You're super late."

Mio said "Oh no."

Mio ran to her classroom. She opened the room's door gently, but she fell which caused lots of noise. Azusa helped Mio get up.

1 of Mio's teachers (Mr. Horigome) said "This is the first time you've been late."

Tamayura is a barely known, but wonderful anime show that needs more attention and love. This review is about why this amazing show is worth watching. The show ended with a 4 part film series.

The Plot

Tamayura is focused on Fuu Sawatari, a girl who loves taking pictures. Her late father was a photographer too. Fuu has a rather sad past due to losing her dad, but with the help of her 3 best friends (Kaoru Hanawa, Maon Sakurada, and Norie Okazaki) she gets the inspiration and optimism she needs to have a successful and happy life.

Tamayura is a amazing and inspiring anime show that shows and reminds people that life can be okay if you have people that care about you and you don't give up. It's a truly wonderful plot that's sweet natured without being too cute or too dark. It's hard to get a better plot than Tamayura.

The show is a slice of life which means it focuses on the lives of the main characters rather than some epic action or stuff like that. It's a serious, but lighthearted show. It actually has a fair amount of comedic scenes which are really funny.

The third season will air in Japan and come to everyone worldwide in October of 2017.

If you read the current manga, then you’ll definitely be excited about the upcoming season since it will try to follow as much of it as possible, I personally cannot wait to see it animated because it’ll reveal things that may have not made sense at first or just seeing all the wonderful dishes come to life.

'Can't fear your own world'
"This Article Contains Spoilers Took Place After bleach manga Left Off "

With four out of the seven previews out, I thought it may be time to gather all the scattered information together into one post.
First off, I would like to thank Missstormcaller, u/schneizel and LoN for providing translations and summaries and u/hypnodarkrai for providing the chapters. Without them we probably would have to rely on inaccurate summaries for years, like it was the case with Spirits are forever with you, which surprisingly turned out to be a well written book.
But now, without further ado, let's start with the information:
Title: Can't fear your own world
Author: Ryoga Narita
Released previews: 4 out of 7
Release of the physical book: August 4
According to Narita, Kubo did provide information and details for the novel, which makes it canon. At least when it comes to the reveals.

Azashiro Kenpachi
Kenpachi Azashiro (アザ史郎 剣八, lit. Azashiro Kenpachi), formerly called Sōya Azashiro (アザ志郎宗谷, lit. Azashiro Sōya), is the former 8th Kenpachi of the Gotei 13 and the previous captain of the 11th Division. In order to gain the title of Kenpachi, he slayed the previous one, Kenpachi Kuruyashiki, with his Bankai. He gain this title for unclear reasons. It's also known that he started a rebellion within the Soul Society and was taken down by the Royal Guard. Since then, he was sentenced to Mūken, the lowest prison level within the Soul Society and his title given to his lieutenant.

Despite being the former Eleventh Division captain, he seems to be well aristocratic, dressing and acting in such a manner. It's been also mistaken that he was from the Kuchiki Clan because of such comments on his appearence and his mannerisms, something he has a tendency to deny on most occasions and something that annoys him to no end. He has his silky black hair, finely-combed, and it's held back with a golden hair clip that keeps his hair in an upright manner. He has two long bangs hanging down neatly from each side of his face. It's said that the hair clip is a...

*Hope and Wonder*

Watching and hiding

Behind a tree.

Hoping he doesn't

Notice me.

I see he's determined

To change his fate

I want to change it

Before it's too late.

They said I'm a failure.

My sister, cousin, and Dad.

But the thing I was lacking

Was something he had

At my first Chuunin exams,

Something I'll never forget.

He helped me change.

At least a little bit.

Sitting in my room

Thinking of that day.

Wondering 'When I see him next,

What am I going to say?'

Then I go to my bed,

Thinking 'When won't I flee?'

And wishing for the day

When he'll acknowledge me.

I was stupid, yet
Courageous in
Heading to face
Impending doom,
Going as weak as
Only a human can be.

Kind of funny, how
Unlikely enemies
Round up allies that,
Over time, become
Some of the best
And kindest people a
Kid could know
In this world.

I've gained a power
Some call 'dangerous'.

Some other being, a
Thing inside me,
Reeling with belief that
Our body will
Never be mine,
Grows strong inside.

Almost taking control,
Never alone, yet I
Don't let him for long.

Bright light can't
Release this
Atrocious being,
Violently fighting his
Eviction from my soul
I'll win in the end, I just know it.

Every Winter morning I think of you,
Missing the fuffilment of the icy black hole, that once you used to be my heart.
Every Snowflake that falls from the frosted heavens reminds me of those sweet and special moments I spent with you.
My body aches for your warm, but icy embrace
My eyes yearn to see your smilling face
And now my heart now sucocmbs to the icy icy pit of loneliness.
Now every step I take, leaves behind a trail of frost and ice. Marking my lonesome presence.
For I wish for one day I can be with you again my love,
just to inhale your calming scent,
to be wrapped in your arms,
To be warm again.
It's so cold here without you.
Every Summer, every Spring, every Autumn feels like the icy kiss of Winter.
When the wind blows, and nips my nose, I don't say it's Jack Frost, but it's you my chilly soulmate.
For when the tiny crystals that fall from the sky and lands on my lashes, I know it's you wiping away my icy and crystal tears.

Your face haunts me.
Your eyes pierce my soul,
They look right through me,
Reading my thoughts.

You smile paralyzes me.
Your laugh controls me.
So full of malice,
But i am not scared.

You make me feel safe,
Even thoug you hurt others.
You stand so tall,
Looking down on me.

You act as if you hate me,
But i know you do not.
Deep, really deep down,
I am your whole world.

I chose to go down the path of fight

But instead I went down the path of light.

Her auburn hair, her dimpled cheeks

Her smile never gave me creeps.

It brought me comfort as it made her shine.

Her eyes were ones that were very wide.

Her glowing gray orbs showed the way

Down that path that I will betray.

Once it ended, I looked up to her.

Her crying tears made her vision blur.

I asked if she was scared, it seemed rather odd.

She reached out to me and said "I'm not."

It all made sense, then and there.

I had a heart, which was never spared.

I left her that day, bewildered one as it is.

I'll never forget her, the one who was not afraid.

The one who wanted me to stay.

The moment I saw you, I felt safe.

Because you're the only one who treats me the way I am.

I felt your warmth, when the sunlight touches.

Our relationship gets closer as we be together.

But one will leave one some other day.

And then you left this world and left me alone.

I am sad because I killed you.

I killed you because to save myself.

I met a human who looks like you.

Orange hair and hot headed but kind and caring.

I trust the man and gave him my powers.

I was forced to go back because I break the law.

The man who I knew for two months, came to recue me.

Am I that worth it?

I am not worth to spill a drop of blood.

Because I killed you to save myself.

The man thinks that I am impotant to him.

But why?

Why did he want to save me?

He Fade Away........
You are my beloved... Gin.
Always ever my beloved Gin. Many days have been spent without you, since we cannot meet, because you do not exist much...
Why do you run away from such a place as this?
You liked this place, didn't you?
I heard it from your own lips. You like and love this place...
You born here and lived in here. There were other things to like here, right?

I do not know Gin, explanation fails again.
How many times were spent so missing you...
The worst is... with the days, which increase and flow,
I have felt lost without you and like I lose you more, repeatedly each day...

I am surely full of pain and sadness...
Will you stay for me, then… by my side a little longer…just a little longer...
I want to be with you as often as I can.
I want to be beside you. I can prove to you that I will not run away-from you or from the Soul Society! Can you?

Little Witch Academia is a anime show. It is a lighthearted show with sweetness and comedy.

The show focuses on female witches who go to school. At their school they learn lessons about how to be better at flying and other witch related stuff. The show's main character is Atsuko Kagari also known as Akko. She and her friends have lighthearted adventures together.

To be honest I didn't have that much interest in the show early on. It seemed like a simple and overly cute type of show. However things changed after seeing Atsuko Kagari. She instantly seemed like a good main character and she sure is. My Fanpop username is her name which should explain how awesome Akko is. I love her personality traits. also she is entertaining and I love her costume. The other characters are pretty good I guess. I love Akko so much that it's hard to notice the other characters.

The animation is 1 of the best parts of the show. It looks really nice. Plus the characters (mostly Akko) look so cool. The costumes the characters wear look impressive.

Ichigo Kurosaki as (Shinsuke Sato)
The official Bleach website for the upcoming Live-Action Bleach film posted up a teaser trailer for the upcoming movie today. The teaser trailer displays Ichigo Kurosaki (Shinsuke Sato) gaining Shinigami abilities and cutting of a Hollow’s hand.

The film will centre around the Substitute Shinigami Arc which was the manga’s first, running from volume 1 to volume 8.

As revealed , Live-Action Bleach movie will open in Japan in Summer 2018. Alongside this, we see Ichigo Kurosaki played by Sota Fukushi

The text on the visual above says “Shinigami, Meeting” which seems to point at Ichigo and his new Shinigami powers, as well as the first time he meets a Shinigami, or rather should I mention Rukia Kuchiki.

From the trailer and visuals revealed, I am personally very happy at how awesome it looks. It definitely reminds me of the good days of Ichigo when he first obtained his powers. Plus we get to see Ichigo cut the hands of the first Hollow. I’m definitely hyped about it and can’t wait to see more.

To add to the end of the Fairy Tail manga series, the creator Hiro Mashima reveals on his twitter account that the final season of he series will be adapted into an anime which will return in 2018. Mashima even went as far as to post two tweets, one in Japanese, and the next in English.

Nothing apart from the tweet has been revealed. Except that it will be based off the final arc which we’ve seen in the manga series, fights between the Alvarez Kingdom, Fairy Tail and Acnologia.

I’d like to also mention that, when the series does come back, I will not be covering largely because I’m just glad the series has come to an end, and thus allows me to concentrate on different series and gives me more time to do other things.
