If you clicked this link, you're probably thinking: "What the hell is this?" or "Okay...where's CT, FF4, SMRPG, or PPF?" or "Oh jeez, what did he do now?"
This was an idea I had about five months ago that I have wanted to do for quite a while now. I wanted to try a completely original story and script with a high school type deal. What came about was some past conversations I used to have with the actors and actresses in this episode (and two others in the next episode) that suddenly started to make some character development.
Okay, I probably confused you people with the last sentence. Basically I asked myself, "What would it have been like if we had gone to high school together in an anime?" Yeah, this is probably how it would go down in a somewhat normal setting. I tried to match the personalities of everyone as best as I could.
At first it started out with me wanting to do some sort of harem high school radioplay or visual (because I love Shuffle). Then JellybeanQueen2 and I wanted to do something with Shudo's Army...me doing the comical high school stuff and she doing something a little more serious and action/adventure. Then, Jelly's school schedule began to destroy her so I decided to still make this a high school radioplay but have some action going on in the later episodes. Yeah, I have already planned out what's going to happen in my mind. I've written scripts for 10 episodes with 3 more episodes to go. If it does well and if I can figure out where to take it beyond the 13th episode, I might do more. If not, then it's been an interesting experiment/experience (you decide) for me.
Originally this was to be called VAA High School because
- I couldn't think of any other name at the time (seriously, I couldn't)
- I had planned on having guest VAA people make guest appearances which varied from episode to episode.
However, I started re-thinking that and changed the title to what it is now. The plot took a bit to figure out and the scripting was fun to do (this one ended up being 11 pages, but the later ones are around 20).

Thanks to the cast for putting up with my constant pestering and thanks to all of those who listen. I know it's probably going to be a slow start with this first episode (it's like that in most animes), but it'll start picking up in a couple of episodes.
One more thing...I was not originally supposed to have outtakes/bloopers, but I ended up getting some anyway so I added them in the end. To those who sent them...please don't kill me with what I did...pretty please? ^_^;
