Watching: Cowboy Bebop
Playing: monster hunter freedom 2
Set in London.
theres a boy (nameless for now, lets jus call him Andy) who has no interest in dance at all... in fact, he hates dance. he thinks its stupid, a waste of time, an that it cant get you anywhere. He hates loud music, hip hop, Singing, etc. He's one of those guys that is very narrow minded. Whats worse is that he's a geek, an kicks ass at maths. He lives with his mother, younger brother and older sister, who may be the reason for his feelings towards dance.
His older sister Aki, is one of the UK's best dancers. And she is the leader of the UK's best dance troupe. She's very talented in all dance styles and makes sick ass choreo.
Having such a famous sister, Andy is very well known. but the annoying thing is that, no1 knows him for who he is, but only as Aki's brother..'hey, your Aki's brother aint cha?' 'isnt that Aki's bro?' 'oi, say hi to Aki for me aite?' hearing stuff like that all the time got to Andy's head an pissed him off. An with that, he directed his anger towards the reason why no1 acknowleges him for who HE is, which is dance and his sister...
one day, Andy accidentally gets his sister into an accident. He was supposed to pick up his little brother from school, but he was too busy studying for the exam that he knows full well he's goin to pass. So, Aki, who only jus got her licence, goes to pick up her sister, but gets invloved in a violent road accident, gravely injuring her spine and her skull. (ouch)
She then ends up in a Coma. a very bad one, where the doctors dont know when she's going to wake up, or IF she even will wake up..
an with that, all the blame gets pointed at Andy. His mum nearly disowns him, and all of the dancers who found out what happened pointed the finger, and gave him the famous Naruto look, lol, the kinda look that jus says, your worthless.
With his sister in the hospital bed, her dance troupe breaks up. And all the best in the troupe go off to make there own groups, since they dont wanna move on without her and dont even know if she gonna survive the accident. So with guilt doing press ups on his shoulders, Andy decides to take up dance.. he starts watching videos, going to classes, recalling all the things his sister used to say, etc. Along with his friends, who have no experience in dance, they start dancing together and try to improve.
Okay, so theres the main storyline an concept. but as all good stories an anime have, its never that simple. And there has to be rivals, other characters, etc. This story isn't some magical anime journey where they go around the world an do backflips and randomly saving the planet from a group of terrorists who want to somehow use dance to take over the world. lol, its about life and dance. its gonna contain the struggles of learning, hitting walls, money to attend classes, injuries, exams, boys, girls, parents, school, failure, success, auditions, performing - the whole shebang. =] i want dancers to be able to relate to the story, an i want dancers to be able to talk about it. Andy is the main character, but again, like Naruto, there will be many characters that people will be able to relate to and like. =]
