Read the Complete Series!
Cantaga Station is a space station soap opera. If you like Babylon 5, Deep Space Nine, or science fiction that emphasizes drama over action, you will love Cantaga Station.
Helpful/Interesting Things to Know:
Content Warnings: This series contains PG-13 levels of language, sex, and violence throughout--though the emphasis is on the drama and relationships. Romantic behavior and violence are implied, not graphic. Similar to what you would find on broadcast television dramas in America.
There are three main humanoid races in this universe, and they do NOT get along very well, so race-related themes are present throughout. (That is what the Traumatizing Content label is for. Better safe than sorry?) There are also alternative sexual orientations, including a pansexual AI.
Main Characters: There are 8 main characters in the story.
+ Capt. Cuther Larke, war veteran and leader of Cantaga Station
+ Lady Evel Astelyn, aristocratic founder and owner of the station
+ Rico, Cantaga's superintelligent AI
+ Ridget Wellson, one-woman law enforcer
+ Euliana Siero, Callaran diva and headline act at the Starlite Lounge
+ Zabe Suaro, Callaran server
+ Dr. Brix Halstead, recreation coordinator, medical officer, and heiress
+ Ludo Tralta, Vortai outcast with dreams of stardom
Writing Process: Many aspects of this fictional universe are randomized. Notably, the basic societal framework was generated using the Collaborative Worldbuilding Card Deck by Trent Hergenrader.
Proper names (including the name of the space station) were selected from online random word/name generators with a few tiny exceptions.
Each scene has two randomly selected primary characters (including a "guest star" slot). Once the scene parameters are selected (including location and emotion), I cannot "re-roll" the scene, nor do I know what scenes are coming up next.
The secret of the arrivals. One that Ulf Hammargren had searched for since he became one of them but also one that was kept from the public.
As more secrets unveil he unwillingly accepts why they have to be kept hidden, but when Principal Kareyoshi starts hurting his friends Ulf is caught in a moral dilemma as Christina Agerman uses her fame to bring down anyone would harm those they love.
Warning: mature content. This volume shifts from the shounen / shoujo category to seinen / josei, and most definitely not in a nice way. I'm not referring to porn, which I personally wouldn't consider R-rated. Once again, you have been warned.
"Young girls and mass-murderers are tender-hearted creatures."
Tsukiakari was unlucky.
Daughter of the Shinto gods Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, she was supposed to live a lavish life of fortune and favor. She was supposed to be a princess, planning for the day when she would rule Heaven and its subjects, like her father and mother before her. She would soon learn that fate laughs as these pallid, charmless machinations called "plans".
Her father was banished from Heaven for the murder of a fellow god, while her mother's waning mental health made it impossible to continue living with her. And so, Tsukiakari fled from Heaven, descending upon the Honshu island of Japan during the kickoff of the ?nin War. Tsukiakari finds herself exposed to both the horrors and the beauties of the mortal world, and the humans therein. She becomes accustomed to Japan's landscape, its aromatic sakura trees and waving fields of moonlit susuki, but is left terrified by the madness and brutality of war. She has walked right into an era of social upheaval, of lordless armies engraving their mark in history with their bloodstained blades. No one was there to guide her.
Except for him.
Bishamonten, the legendary god of war, discovers the young Tsukiakari's affinity for the blade. He takes the stray goddess in, offering her a home and a place in his new society; the Senkumo clan. Just imagine, a militaristic society unbound by power-hungry daimyo or an ever-increasingly useless Shogun, a parallel state hiding beneath the underbelly of feudal, war-stricken Japan. The Senkumo are not bound by a common bond of blood, but by a common bond of ideals. They vow to not only become a nation unto themselves, but to also bring the fear of the gods back to the outside world. With Tsukiakari in their ranks, the Senkumo embrace their second lord, and the clan begins their long, bloody, and tragic journey to achieve their vision.
Senkumo War Stories is a chronicle of the battles, the brutality, and the betrayal Tsukiakari and her experienced during the Warring States period of Japan. It is a chronicle that has already played out many centuries ago. Nothing can be changed, taken back, or altered. The triumphs and tragedies within shall remain ever permanent.
This chronicle's first tale is the Book of Blossoming. It's the story of a stray goddess finding her purpose on the battlefield. It is also a tale of the clan she came to love and nurture, of the people that were loyal to her to the very end. Tsukiakari's long legend begins with a blossoming, but it ends in a tragic bloodbath. Many of the people who took part in her chapter of history are no longer with us. And yet, their memory can live on here, in the first Senkumo War Story.

Those few minutes seemed like an eternity. Everyone was so desperate to save Noriko, to save her child and atone for the grave mistake committed in the Senkumo name. But as the minutes continued to pass, there was less and less anyone could do for her. Tsukiakari soon found herself to be the only one still trying, while the others all refused to even look at Noriko’s colorless face.
Tsukiakari took a good look at Noriko, her lifeless face and her battered, violated body.
Book of Betrayal continues the harrowing tale of the Senkumo clan and the horrors Tsukiakari endured during the Warring States era of Japan. It begins with the Rape of Noriko and the subsequent massacre of her village, heinous crimes committed by Tsukiakari's own men. Forced to conceal the atrocity from her Ashikaga allies, Tsukiakari has the perpetrators executed and the bodies dumped in the Katsura river. Her efforts to preserve peace between her clan and the Ashikaga proved forlorn. As it turns out, dead men do tell tales.
Tsukiakari finds herself embattled by new and old enemies, and hated by men and phantoms alike. War begins to rot the senses of everyone around her, turning good men and women into vengeful husks of their former selves. Her fight to establish her clan as a sovereign state becomes bloodier and more heartbreaking than she could've ever imagined, as the madness of war begins to affect her dearest friends.
In Book of Betrayal, the leadership of the Senkumo clan reveal just how far they're willing to go to forge their new nation, even it means turning against their fellow Senkumo. Meanwhile, Bishamon all but disappears from the clan. His communications with Tsukiakari grow sparse, and his true intentions behind establishing the clan are questioned.
With their master gone, Tsukiakari and her clan find themselves all alone in one of the most violent eras of Japan's history, with only their goal and their most determined enemies in sight. Thus begins a tale of secrets, phantoms, and ultimately, betrayal. The question is, who among the Senkumo will survive to see this era of strife and war come to an end?
