no matter how many times compulsive oc-making has backfired i keep doing it
I’ve been doing massive amounts of mental illness research for this, even though it’s pretty goofy! They’re characters for this pitch.
(The only neuro-divergent one in this particular line-up is Kou, who is autistic. His hoodie has noise-cancelling/atmospheric-audio-playing headphones and scented liners, to keep him from over-stimulating on outside excursions.)
Basically: Sci-fi speculative fiction, Not!Shinto, consumerism and family narratives, serious MOGII discussions, casually neuro-divergent characters, and also every battle manga trope in creation, ever. And most of the characters are cute boys. There is not a single thing about this that is not some form of self-indulgence.
But mostly bullshit magic power battles. That’s the important bit.
