18th-Jul-2017 10:35 am - Volume 28 Summary
I am excited to report that Rina has done some very in-depth summary of volume 28!


This is the first significant English summary we've had beyond vol. 24 in several years. Yay! Thanks, Rina!
You may have noticed that the Mirage of Blaze fan community has dwindled away over the past few years. Some of us are trying to get an active group back together for Mirage fun, fanning out, and eventually getting enough momentum to seriously start fan translations again.

If you love Mirage and would like a space to talk with other fans, share your fan works and meta, and, as your skills and time allow, help translate, summarize, scanlate, etc. Mirage material, head over to Asphodel's forums, which are very nice, old-school, easy-to-use, well-maintained discussion forums dedicated to Mirage.

If your primary fan home is Tumblr, LJ, DW or somewhere else, feel free to crosspost or post links to your Mirage content on these forums to have a permanent Mirage home. Hope to see you!
Many thanks to imperfekti for a) informing me that Mirage of Blaze Showa period stage plays exist and b) doing excellent summaries so that I can sort of tell what's going on. I have got my hands on the DVDs for the first two, thanks to demitas, who used her Japanese skills to order them for me. And now I have thinky thoughts. To begin reviewish stuff:

Caveat: I can't fully "review" these plays, of course, because I can't understand 95% of the script. For the same reason, I can't fully assess these plays against any other Mirage material that hasn't been translated into English, so please take my thoughts with the appropriate grains of salt.

In a word, I loved these plays. They're very successful theater: wonderful use of lighting and sound effects to create very much the same level of physical excitement I personally get from a big budget movie. It's a great way to bring a text with comparatively small financial pull to life (and I'd love to see more of this in the fine arts). The acting, in general, is very good and the characters very in character. I would recommend these plays to anyone who is a serious Mirage fan. They are an important addition to the universe. I laid down a fair amount of money (~$160 USD) to buy them and get them shipped from Japan, and although I am not rich, I consider it money well spent. They're that good.

3rd-Sep-2015 12:16 pm - A new forum for Mirage of Blaze
Lavender smile


I hope everyone has already noticed Asphodel's Haven has gone some updates, and that new translations of book seven is underway.

Besides the new look and the translations, the site now has a forum for Mirage of Blaze. It's very new, so there's not much there yet, but we are hoping to have all kinds of discussions related to the series there.

If you are on Tumblr and have looked at the Mirage of Blaze tag, you may have noticed there is still some more activity in the fandom than one might think if they only looked here. But hopefully it will be even easier for everyone to come together and share everything related to the on the forum.

It would be lovely to have more people join us, so please come over to talk with us!
