Powerful beings called spirits are appearing which are resulting in catastrophic Spacequakes.
High school student Shidou is caught up in the midst of one during an evacuation. Witnessing the pain of the first spirit he encounters and discouraged by the violent methods of the AST (Anti-Spirit Team), Shidou is briefed on a way to disarm the Spirits without violence: to make them fall in love.
If you haven't already, go watch Dennou Coil, aka Cyber Coil. It is kind of a fun sci fi about a bunch of kids and the fun they get into while wearing augmented reality glasses.
In the real world we're not quite there, yet. Augmented reality in the real world is bounded by things like Pokemon Go and StarChart on smartphones, and Microsoft's HoloLens is still pretty bulky and expensive. Nowhere near the nearly-invisible glasses they wear in Dennou Coil. If you've never seen MSFT's 2015 E3 Hololens minecraft demo you should. Microsoft obviously wants us to go there. They've just announced their Minecraft Earth app (below), which to me looks like a portal, both in a marketing sense and a gaming sense. Clearly - to me anyway - the plan is to get people using the app to build content and attach it to the real world so that when things like Hololens get cheap enough there will already be a rich environment to work with.

Eleven years after the introduction of internet-connected, augmented reality eyeglasses and visors, Yuuko Okonogi moves with her family to Daikoku City, the technological center of the emerging half-virtual world. Yuuko joins her grandmother's "investigation agency" comprised of children equipped with virtual tools and powerful metatags. She quickly crosses paths with Yuuko Amasawa, an expert hacker of the virtual environment, as Amasawa relentlessly seeks to "unlock" the mystery of a computer virus that emerges from an inaccessible corrupted space.

Season 2 has been over for a couple of weeks and I am heartbroken. This series really spoke to me on an emotional level and has quickly become one of my favorites. I'm hoping it gets comfirmed for a third season.
Feel free to leave your thoughts on the anime below. I've been itching to discuss it with someone.
This poem came about when I mindlessly fell for someone that turned out to be very toxic. Also, I'm new and have no idea if I'm going about posting this in the right way? 😆
Evil in White
Catching the twilight hour within your hair
Was enough to divest me bare
Nothing from my lips can fashion you in gold
Yet it seems a constant lambency to which I behold
Wild as the wind, restless and vexed
Walking on a garden green, where surely I am hexed
A flower in your current, that tumbles from her vine
For cordial rivers sweep within you, a blue serpentine
There are no stars that fall tonight
They are your gilded crown of might
I am descrying through pellucid jade
At an azure dancer whispering to the glade
With all this power set within your eyes
For me, the least surprise,
was the eternity of the skies
If there was wisdom beating in this heart
I would not be tempted to impart
The velvet in your lonely words
Cut divinity into thirds
Looming now a profound fear
An intoxicating verdict my dear
My weakness resting on each excuse
Where even the sun might you seduce
When the amber rays swell to a coral rush
Swaying on a majestic horizon with a blush
Just to kiss you softly with a breeze
I am now but on my knees
With your name clawing from my chest
Permitting me to a feverish protest
I am reduced to the fiend of you
Falling on the blade of your fallacious virtue
Have your roots slither deep and coil tight
Should have known that evil comes dressed in white
Hello everyone my name is Julian Barragan but y'all can call me Jubacard here lol.
I'm a proffessional filmmaker from Colombia that for some reason decided to start writting a manga lol.
I'm familiar with the rules of story structure and I add my flare to it, but this is for sure my first attempt at a shonen format.
The lore of the story Centers Around The Morai Agency. They have the job of fixing time anomalies throughout space and time. Matsuko is our rebel member of Morai, and ise, our protagonist is a first semester college student who doesn't know what to do with his life, they meet and go on crazy space and time adventures.
It's done in a screenwritting format but with some liberties taken.
Every type of comment of suggestion is recieved! thank you! I wanna write as much as possible. If any of you want to draw any of the situations or characters, I'd love to see what this story can inspire. Hey, maybe a collab with someone?

You know, one of the most intriguing things for me - from a Game Master perspective - about the NerveGear in Sword Art Online was that it could read the mental state of the wearer and communicate that back to the game engine. Not talking about just the obvious physical I/O here, but the player's emotional state as well. Imagine giving a save throw modifier based on how emotionally invested the player is in some aspect of the "game". In one episode of the SAO anime's "Aincrad" arc for instance there's a swordsmith character who really, really wants to make a great sword for a specific special customer. Imagine the game engine being able to distinguish that mental state from one where the same smith is just building inventory to sell. Imagine the game being able to tell that the player is aware that they absolutely positively need to make this next bow shot or sword blow count. The Kayaba Akihiko in me could sure find ways to use that information to ah, enhance my players' game experience. Give me a few minutes and I could probably come up with a whole class of magic/psi use dependent on the emotional state of the individuals wielding it for its effects. Or how about a Nerve Gear version of something like Soul Eater? Offhand I can think of several animes where this sort of technology could be put to good(?) use in the game version.
Of course the other side of that same coin is the one exploited by Sugou Nobuyuki (aka "Oberon") in the Alfheim arc to brainwash and control people. Fortunately things haven't gone that far in real life. There we (so far) only have to be concerned with the technology being harnessed to do things like maximize micropayment profits...
