Good news everyone!!! The first episode of my beloved “Dragon Ash” series is out.
This story is jam packed with action and choreographed fight scenes.
In this episode, we take a peak at Osaka, Japan just before the start of the Boshin War. Unbeknownst to our main characters, an incident happens that triggers a series of unfortunate events. Then we jump to 2004 where our 17 year old Tien Kaze tries his best to explain what its like to be in the struggling shoes of an Asian living in an unofficially segregated school and dealing with a pair of religiously antiquated parents.
The Stage in the Sky is about revenge, rivalry and rebellion. And out of those three, “Dragon Ash” is mostly centered around the theme of rebellion. Tien Kaze isn’t out to prove his worth, he isn’t out to overcome all odds or fight evil. He’s just a young man who wants to live life his way. Unfortunately, guilt, oppression and a series of untimely deaths bring him face to face with a reality that some paths just cannot be avoided.
