Equality – now there’s a word that the great city of Vanguard did not strive to uphold. Despite the declarations of equality among men that were consecrated in this very city, equality was nothing more than a myth. This was evidenced by the existence of the levels of the city, which lie below the plate that SURFACE was built upon. These domains were officially deemed as the ‘sub-levels’, but residents of Vanguard knew them as the ‘slums’, each numbered by the order in which they were stacked upon one another.

Reese Cooper is a childhood friend of Anzu (Fiji’s sister). Reese is the same age as Anzu, 20. She’s not all that tall either. She attends the same college as Anzu and she works in the same place as Fiji. Reese is not as much shy as she is a total coward. Most people will say she is “just shy” but it goes beyond that. She is terrified of people, male and female. She is more afraid of males though.
She became this way because of her traumatizing past as a child. Her father is the police Continue reading “Character Bio: Reese Cooper”
Anzu Maide is the older sister of Fiji Maide and the best friend of Reese Cooper. She has a goody-goody personality and no one can really find any fault in her, although she can be selfish at times.

The Fiji Random manga is video game themed. It’s the #1 gimmick about the entire concept. I’m a big fan of video games and really wanted to create a manga that had that same theme. The cover of the first volume was designed to look like a game over, like a Xbox game box. Not only is the cover video game inspired, the structure of it’s content is video game like as well.

The mall… does anyone remember that place? As a kid growing up in the 90’s and 2000’s, the mall was the spot where we went to stunt in our own minds, pretending like we had it, knowing good and darn well we were broke as a joke! Before online shopping turned us all into recluses, you could find everything at the mall: normal stuff like DVDs, clothes, J’s, and video games, and really weird stuff, like “boob muffs”, “Humphrey the Humping Dog”, and the all important “Willy Warmer” (look it up…). Just what reputable business would sell such products in an American family establishment like the mall? Spencer’s Gifts, of course! Continue reading “That Time We Almost Got Into Spencer’s Stores…”
SAW is a main character in the Fiji Random manga (look he is on the cover). His full name is Savage Angel Watagashi. SAW is a nickname. His name was inspired by the stupid movie franchise with the same name. He comes from an island country, Razor Island, that is notorious for being dangerous and crime ridden. SAW is part of a foreign student exchange program. Guess what happens to SAW in this program? Correct, he will end up with Fiji’s family in the first volume. Because of his roots and his love of blades, Saw is feared among his peers. He develops a crush on Fiji’s best friend Koco, but Koco is super afraid of him. OH NO!
