The Seriphyn Knight New Decade

Aligning to My New Decade Plan, I will finish what I started by 2025. I created this series back in 2006, lingering in and out of cache servers for many years. No more will it remain a shadow or figment of imagination. I'm making this series a real deal. Here is how.

Is the World Ready for Change?

A Zaldizko change that is. Always seeking.

Original Music Makes

Story Introduction

A coming of age story centred around Duran; a private high school student who has already experienced a dramatic life by the age of fifteen. He hopes for some peace by the time he reaches sixteen.

He restarts life in a new town and school. Right of the bat he stirs up the atmosphere in his high school by starting up a music club.  

Hotaka High School believes in preparing a future generation of doctors, lawyers, corporate executives and financial specialists.  It is the only school that does not have a music and art department.

Through persistence and a loop hole, Duran is able to set up a music club.  Through music, people are connected together and deep rooted feelings are revealed to shake up the hearts of the students and teachers at the school.   Duran, himself, is not immune and faces his troubled past head on.

Disclaimer and Advanced Apologises

I love manga and, especially, Shounen Ai stories.  Having read so many, I wanted to try my hand at writing one myself.  However, not being Japanese, this hasn't been an easy task for me. 

I've researched a lot about the culture in various media, and through reading many different manga genres. Even consulted with colleagues and students who are Japanese or advanced in their knowledge of the culture.  Some manga and stories are gracious enough to explain cultural aspects in great detail.  

Thanks to manga, I've come to love the ingenuity of the Japanese people and culture.  They believe in a good story no matter what boundaries are crossed.  So I hope my story falls in the same respect and seen as true to the culture as I am possible to achieve.

I bow low and sincerely apologise for any Japanese faux pas in advance.  Please forgive me if there are and do not hesitate to call these out to me.  I'll correct them quick smart.

Thank you for reading this story.  I hope it bodes well.
