Oh this sounds like an interesting project!! ^____^ I'm very happy to see a group of people involved in getting a chritistian anime up and running especially in such an awesome time period. I think if your trying to reflect on events on the Bible, the medival time period is perfect because of the wars and stuff!! I'd like to see how your going to get a character to symbolise Jesus in this time period...hehe ^___^ I hope you have fun with this and don't stress over it well I will be praying for success to come to this project!!

Haha, to imitate Jesus, yowzer what a feat, instead on doing the impossible, I think I am going to highlight in each character traits of Christ in their lives. Or perhaps if anyone has a way of showing the grace and mercy and love of God, by all means hahaha. Writing is hard...lol, my mind is torn between school, family and writing. With that said, I have written the mission statement, I will update it when I see fit to do so, and all of the progress can be found on the pages on my profile. With that said, I am trying to organize what is needed, and how I can subdivide each section for someone to do something. I need to seek council with Him beforehand so that I feel guided and not to seem as though I am doing this as a way of showing myself but rather a project that will justly Glorify Him.

My plot seems flawed at the moment, I cannot seem to find connecting stories and backgrounds of the characters they can't all join together as a mob at one time but a continual building of a resistance throughout.

and I may not say this enough, But I truly am thankful for your prayers and support.

Ok I slept like all day today, so for the remainder of the night I will try and post things that I need help with. First its kind of a big deal, and I cannot seem to wrap some good words together to form it, but shouldn't it have a title.

2nd-characters just glance over my ideas of characters, now if you can give them life, personality, a background story, or even if they inspire you to make your own character thats fine by me. Read the mission statement prior though if you could.

3rd-gaps in the story, how does everyone meet up, I have some ideas for a coupe but the "rebels" alone are supposedly 20+ strong so yowzas. I need backstorys where they meet up and some possible plot points, perhaps something happened in your life you wish to convey through the story I am completely open to that, just message me with ideas and suggestions if its at all possible.

(oh a side note for ratman, I have been thinking alot about the creepy/ and or/ kid characters, that is completely unfeasable to me, so I will leave them in your hands, just take a look at some examples. Nothing I have is set in stone just those are the best ideas I have come up with.)

Convey a christian message overall

Characters could potentially be real, real emotions, real thought

character interaction is a big deal to me, it needs to be believable and the audience must come to love them, hate them or sympathize with them.

characters can make or break a story, if all the characters had the same background it would be unoriginal not to mention boring.

I want the emotions to come through each character I want to be able to understand how they think and why they do.

I do not wish to imitate others, but if something worked in an anime you saw, please convey it to me so that we consider emulating it and addressing it.

One of my favorite parts in anime is the music, it really can make or break a mood. The other element is the death of a beloved character, a real tear jerker will keep me watching an anime if not favoriting it.

these are just some guidelines, consult me through private message and I will talk to you as what our options are.

hmm you definatley need some companies or freakishy rich people to help sponsor you and your "camera crew" so try and find connections and stuff like that. If you're lucky your church might be willing to help with funding!

haha, as the lord provides for the birds, I am sure He will for a project in his name. With that said, I am too far behind that to even contemplate publishing. When I get a day to myself (which unfortunately doesn't come often) I will be able to appoint tasks, for whomever to pick up.
