Maru, standing strong with an opposite demeanor than his sister, Rani.

Meet another character from the “Book of Zhu”, the visual novel placed in a setting heavily based on martial arts fantasy.

Here is Rani‘s younger brother, Maru.
Without an early assigned job like his sister and the experience and training derived from that opportunity, Maru at his current age hasn’t matched his sister’s levels as he keeps studying in hopes to decide his future.

Being a calm and reserved boy, he watches his mother’s attention being diverted to his sister and her antics, leaving him feeling a bit put aside.
Despite all that, he relies on his sister’s advice and comfort as he searches his own path.

Meet Rani, if you feel like you shouldn’t poke her even from a safe distance, you’re definitely right. She’s a strong fighter with a matching attitude.

We bring you another character from the “Book of Zhu”, the visual novel placed in a setting heavily based on martial arts fantasy.

Rani belongs to the high caste society, settled since young age to be the retainer of Princess Aya, everyone seems to see her hardly unfit for the job with her rebellious attitude and shortcuts from the protocol required.
Despite everything pointed at her, Rani remains a strong fighter, away from criminal activity and always at Princess Aya’s side as a retainer and as a friend.

The impossibility to control time or realize how fast it goes sometimes, struck us today. Our little blog is one year old already! Happy Birthday, blog! One year on the virtual world and your owners have only been active for the last two months… oopsie.

We’re struggling with a lot of work but we didn’t want to let time go by again and made this little picture to mark the beginning of our new, main window to the world. And of course…

We would very much like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the visits we have been receiving and followers who are keeping an eye on our silly musings. Thank you very much for being there on the other side of the screen! So indeed:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STARLITDEN!

Ah… and now back to work!

Lights, Cameras.. Keep working.

Edit, Trim, Sync!

Our posting has slowed down lately but it’s for a good reason!
One of the things we’re working on is a Limited 2D animation for the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (check the post about “Animate Europe 2015”, here and about our story “Boundless” here) and it’s been nothing short from exciting for us.

We’ll try to keep up with the updates, even if they’re a bit slow right now!
Stay inspired!★★
