Starlight - A Magical Girl Novel Trilogy

Starlight is a magical girl story with a hint of yuri and a melding of sci-fi and fantasy. If you’ve ever seen anime in the magical girl genre – Precure especially – then this might interest you. If you’ve not seen shows like that, think of this as urban fantasy with hints of sci-fi.

I’m taking a more mature approach compared to the anime shows aimed at young girls, with older girls starring (20-23 years). And various settings including the main character’s university, a fictional artificial island city off Japan’s coast, and the general environs of Kamogawa, an east coast Japanese town.

Starlight generally gets one update per week on a Saturday. This normally features at least one fight scene involving the antagonists, and will focus heavily on the main story. Plus the slice of life and relationship type segments.

One of the things that always bugs me about Precure and similar shows is the monster of the week formula. Some great episodes were dragged down by a shoehorned monster fight every week. Because I’m not limited to 24 minute episodes, I can handle things a bit differently and only place fights where they’re necessary.

All of my non-Amazon works are published to Movellas, no account needed. Though if you sign up you can follow me to be notified of updates and things.
