I Like Anime, So I Made An Anime-Inspired Series, Only Without The Animation!
I just joined Royal Road a day ago, and now I'm here to promote my web novel series, DEMON BLADE.
Inspired by shounen titles that I used to grow up with (specifically Bleach), I created this series in the holy year of 2020, and I'm still writing this series till today (only when I have time).
This series tells the story of Ryuken, an average 15-year old high schooler, living his life in an ordinary way, until he comes across a mysterious katana and is pulled into the world of unbelievable supernatural.
If you like anime, I hope you would give my series a try. Currently, I have 19 chapters in the bank, but I'll be uploading them every 3 days or so.
If you like them, I may consider uploading all of them more often. Hell, I would love to upload all of them all at once, but I don't wanna risk messing up with the algorithm... or whatever.
I think that's all I have to say, so for now, please enjoy this scene below where my main character tries his best to promote the series that he's in.
Thank you for reading this far. I wish you a lovely day.
