Someone remind me someday to talk about Kaoru and pirates. Like, after 199 Legend comes out, when I can feasibly understand things. Not that I don't already know the plot of the movie and all but I am just saying. Oh gosh Natsui Runa got so tall and her hair is so long now oh gosh.

[a princess in a fancied up kimono stands with a giant fan outside her present residence. judging by the look on her face, she's just remembered something ... important, shall we say]

((anyone who wants to can tag, castmates if you want to get an update harisen'd into your skull just say so, and if you want to wait for subs THAT IS ALSO AWESOME 8|b but Kaoru is now officially from the end of the Goseiger crossover))

Because I've the memory of a sieve.

Nogami Ryoutarou: Katsura, Saïx, Wallace, Zack.

Shiba Kaoru: Omar, Othello, Raine, Kazuhiko.

Son Goku: Ys Cordelan, Marona, Laura Kinney/X-23, Ganymede, Kanzaki Naoto, Keima Katsuragi.

Lately, my internet has been doing this thing where it cuts out and I lose computer and phone until seven or eight at night, which -- I am paying full price for everything, my bills are paid, it makes no sense. I'm hoping to get this checked out by the two companies which are at fault but ... I might be scarce for awhile during the days.

Name: Kaoru
Age: ~16
Height: ITTY BITTY. ~4'10" WAIT 5'2" oh man she grew.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black

Medical Info: She is a trooper, she takes tons of damage and gets over it pretty well.

Physical traits: She is a teeny tiny little girl! Her hair is always in a ponytail and she will always be dressed like so unless otherwise specified! Because Kaoru is serious samurai business.

What's Okay To Mention Around Her: Absolutely anything.

Abilities: FAN THROWING? She can hit a moving target! And smack people with fans hard enough to drop them to their knees. You don't even know how great she is with the harisen. Her mojikara abilities are easily the best in the entire team, SORRY GUYS, but it's true. One tiny princess can make the seal all alone and it takes six of them to write it.

Notes for the Psychics: Nothing too special here, but beware of passing spoilers.

Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?: Yeah go for it.

Hugging/Kissing/Other non-violent physical contact: Yes please, but a warning: There is a 90% chance that you will get hit in the face by a folding fan.

Maim/Murder/Death: Yes to the fighting and the maiming but ix-nay on the death without asking first. I am pretty easy! We just have to talk that out.

Name: Kaoru/ShinkenRed.
Age: 16/17
Series: Samurai Sentai Shinkenger
Canon: For eighteen generations, the samurai sentai team authorized by providence has fought to protect the people. The lord of Shiba, ShinkenRed, and his four vassals make up the team and have for years kept the evil Gedoushu who live in the Sanzu river from overflowing it into the human world. Tradition dictates that these five samurai will battle for peace, but the present team boasts a sixth member and another few surprise, like mecha made by sushi sellers and a princess.

That princess is Kaoru. She is cool and devoted and believes in her own strengths first and foremost. She also believes in tradition. She is also shown to be thoughtful and proud. Kaoru is serious and stoic most of the time but doesn't have a problem beating up her elders with fans or having them gagged. Kaoru also describes herself as being very anachronistic. The reason for most of that is that SPOILERS: Kaoru is actually both the true lord of the Shiba clan and ShinkenRed. Her seriousness comes from a drive to defeat the ultimate evil alongside the retainers fated to be hers. She is probably the most passionate about helping people.


Enough is enough. As soon as I stepped into this village I could tell that it, like me, was different. It felt almost like we were the same, both displaced in time. But you have taken that charade too far, every last one of you here. Yes, I want to become less anachronistic, that much is true. Even if it meant sacrificing my pride as a swordsman, I was willing to take part in your daily scheduled "goofy time" for this reason alone. I strive to take these lessons to heart, yet I find myself consistently disappointed in the behavior of those around me. My supposed teachers are no different. They rally the call for brains, day in and day out, in a tireless effort to find someone smart and capable enough to handle their lessons, but offer little assistance aside from that. Something simply has to change.

Make no mistake. I would like very much to be able to learn, and the basis of learning is to ask and yield answers. Yet every question I ask is either ignored entirely or improperly answered to amuse the rest of my peers. Surely something can be done about this. I tried to reason with the teachers myself, to try and find some reasoning behind it. The response I received was terrible. Every little issue became a comment upon my own face, and the questions that couldn't be used as an insult were given numerical value. I fail to see what that has to do with anything, and repeating the number "forty-two" does nothing to help anyone. There is more to the meaning of this life than that, I promise all of you.

Protecting people, that should be the meaning that comes to mind first. This world we live in is so full of different kinds of people and creatures. There is more to see than can ever be seen, and more to do than can ever be done by one person alone. —Ah, yes. It seems you finally understand my feelings here. I am glad that my words have moved you to dance. All that I might ask in return is your advice on what I can do to feel that same excitement toward my own goal. Anything that you have to give me, I will take it. Let us help one another and become part of this world. I want to be where the people are, to learn and understand everything there is to know. I beseech you again, and ask only for the tools I need to become a person befitting this time.

... I see. If this is all the advice you have, I will go now and master this form. I will not stop until I have perfected every step and jump to this "time warp".
