Not just any city, but the city of Metropolis, where the mighty building called the Ziggurat is being constructed. When finished, it will be the greatest marvel mankind has ever achieved. It will challenge the heavens and will pave the way for a glorious future. A future where man’s influence of power knows no limits.
Actually, this is in anticipation for the first movie of Anime Movie Night. For seven nights, I will be watching an anime movie. The first one is Metropolis, a movie written by Katsuhiro Otomo and directed by Rintaro.
Huh? The entire house just vanished and all I see is a gigantic jungle gym…Perfect for a giant child…
Muse: There! My playground covers the whole world! Tee hee!
What? Why are you gigantic? Well, that doesn’t matter. I will do whatever you want!
???: That is enough. You have gone too far!
*a blinding light envelops the whole world*
Dark Muse: Hey! What’s going on? Tee hee!
*Dark Muse gets removed from Muse and flies into the far distance and vanishes*
Hey! You got rid of my princess!
???: Come to your senses! You are not under her control anymore!
Whoa…What happened? I feel strange…
???: You were under the Dark Muse’s spell. I freed you from it.
Who are you? You sound like my Muse…
???: I am your guardian. I keep this universe in order and protect you from harm.
You also keep the storyline intact.
???: You could say that…
???: Very well…
*bright light flashes to reveal a giant Muse*
Universe Muse: I am the Universe Muse. This is not my true form, but one that I have chosen so that you can see me…
*Universe Muse scoops me up and holds me in the palm of her hand*
Universe Muse: My true size is 60,000 or your universes. It was originally 10,000 from our last meeting, but I have decided to continue growing out of boredom. That Dark Muse would’ve ruined the storyline if I let her meddle with it any further…
Muse: What about me? Hey!
Universe Muse: Child. You are freed from the Dark Muse that possessed you.
Muse: Her? I didn’t like her. I told my mom when she was over, but she didn’t believe me. That stupid girl…she made my mom her slave…
Universe Muse: You don’t have to worry about her anymore. Your mind is cleansed from her influence…You know, child. I have given you something special…
Muse: Special? Yeah. I know. It’s a lot of fun!
*Muse changes into her adult form and creates a child clone of herself*
Muse: There! Thank you for my special thing! It’s my own One Privilege, right?
Universe Muse: It is. It has a special safeguard so that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. When you were possessed by Dark Muse, your powers were nullified. Whatever powers that the Dark Muse had before she entered you were active.
Muse: Well, thanks for freeing me! Me and my younger me are going to have some fun now.
Child Muse: Let’s have some fun! You look a lot like my mom! Can I call you…other mom?
Muse: You can, my dear!
Child Muse: Yay! You’re a lot of fun. Thanks, big protector mom!
Universe Muse: Anytime, my child. Protecting this story is my number one job. Take care, Kyle!
I will. Bye!
Muse: Now what were you talking about?
I was talking about the movie Metropolis.
Muse: Oh! Anime movie week is this week! Metropolis? I love that movie! I am…who?
Child Muse: You are other mom…remember? Tee hee!
Muse: No dear…It’s for a movie that we’re going to see tonight.
Child Muse: A movie?! I can’t wait!
Neither can I. Anyway, back to the movie discussion…
Yes. I also like Tima in the movie. Well, I would like to relax before the movie tonight. The movie will start at 7:00. After the movie, I will go to bed.
Muse: I’ll let you do that. Time to get ready! And play with my daughter! Let’s go!
Child Muse: Okay…OTHER mom! Tee hee hee!
That’s about today in a nutshell. Take it easy today and watch Metropolis tonight.
My Muse is seven and a half years old today. She is 3’1.5″ tall and she weighs 39 pounds. The height of a three year old and the weight of a five year old.
Today’s high is going to be 35 degrees and the silver lining is watching Metropolis this afternoon.
To those of you who love anime movies, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: I especially like the ending song. I can’t stop loving you, I’ve made up my mind…
Child Muse: Can you play that song for me? Please?!
