Heyya minna, It’s Ryuuji Tatsuya!
First of all, Happy new year! I hope this year has been good for you guys so far. For me, it’s been really eventful in just these few days. One of those have something to do with this post, that I’ve been eager to publish for a long time!
Today, I’m happy to announce that this is my First Collaboration post with the Manga Goddess AKA Auri! Hi there, Auri!
“Hey there! Firstly, I’m not a manga goddess XD, but Ryu-kun’s nickname is great, so I’ll play along. I’ve sort of built the suspense on this collaboration, but here we are finally! Thanks for agreeing and having me along Ryu-kun!”
It’s always a pleasure to have you with us, Auri!
So what do we have in store for you? Well after brainstorming many ideas we finally decided on having a themed Resort Style review. Why? Because normal review is too mainstream! Would you do the honours of elaborating the idea a bit more, Auri?
“Ok then! Well, since I’m not quite comfortable with simple reviews (much to Ryu–kun’s difficulty LOL) we both agreed to spice things up a bit. Since we’ve both read/ watched our respective manga/ anime, we’ve decided to make a brochure if ever the manga/ anime would be turned into a resort! It IS a review, just in a different format!”
So yeah! I gave Auri the anime series to do the review while she returned the favour by recommending a manga series (Which is, of course, her speciality). Check out her amazing post here!
Welcome to the I-Revo Resort! A special manga resort dedicated to ice skating, designed to give you and your family a memory of a lifetime! The I-Revo Resort is brought to you by Good times Group of Manga Resorts.
Have you ever dreamed of letting go of your mundane routine of practising Karate in your family dojo? Were you ever teased when you said ‘Watashi’ instead of ‘Boku’ (Even if you are a girl)? Or did you ever get creeped out by the behavior of your former boyish friend, who has now become feminine because of a guy?
Then this is where your wait finally ends! Since we, the I-Revo Resort crew, are here to take you to a place where you belong!
Ever heard of figure skating? If you have then Bravo! If not then don’t worry, for we are here to explain this beautiful sport to you!
“Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908.The four Olympic disciplines are men’s singles, ladies’ singles, pair skating and ice dancing. Non-Olympic disciplines include synchronized skating and four skating. From novice through senior-level competition, skaters generally perform two programs (short and long) which, depending on the discipline, may include spins, jumps, moves in the field, lifts, throw jumps, death spirals and other elements or moves.”
“It seems a little… well… very difficult…”
Difficult? It is! But that’s why you will love your stay! Unlike other resorts, we won’t be giving you just the pleasure of this sport. We have some more special features all ready for you, that will be sure to tug your shoujo heart~
I think you’re excited to spend some time at our lovely resort already! Then don’t waste any time and join us h-
No no no, put your phone down, we can not be found in Google Maps just like that!
To get to know us, you will have to go through a series of events that can only be found in the world of Shoujo. Are you ready to discover the secret path that will get to us?
“Yeah. Definitely. (Sounds shady though….)”
For that we’ll dive into the time when Masaki, one of our most satisfied customer, came in to spend time with us.
Middle School Girl, Masaki, was brought up in a male majority family which heads a karate dojo. Being the only female member, she was hardly taught by anyone to be more feminine; instead, she was trained like the men and turned into a hardcore karate prodigy.
“She sounds like a role model to follow! Doesn’t sound like one who’d wander into a resort though?”
How did she found us, you ask? Ah~ In the world of Shoujo, all it needs for someone to change is to have a lovely encounter with the one she’s fated to be with. That’s what happened to our tomboyish Masaki too!
One day, on her way to school, she almost got into a fatal accident (Thanks to the tease of a classmate, and Masaki’s impulsive nature). Now here’s a quiz, who was there to save you from danger?
“Let me guess…. Cliched Prince?”
That’s right! It’s the Prince Charming, Kaoru! This fateful encounter not only just saved her life, but also awoke her feminine side, and made her a Maiden in Love~ ❤
Yeah, that encounter (however clichéd) was really heartwarming! Oh but don’t expect a high school drama, as Kaoru leaves the scene just after that. It’s because of Masaki’s eager to meet her Prince and her youthful female heart that helped her find us, the I-Revo Resort!
You too can find us just like that! Want to attract your prince charming? Or spend time with him in our romantic Ice Rink, then this place is made just for you!
“I’d rather not be swept off my feet thank you very much. I’m loyal to only one (GD)”
Oh don’t worry! I’m sure your loyalty won’t be affected, as there are many more things for us to offer.
Apart from a generic Shoujo love chase, we’re also here to assist you to get to know the world of Figure skating more, thanks to our beloved and talented coach. While he might look like a worthless and shady character, I dare you, he’s not! He is one of the best ice skaters in his times, and now he’s ready to dedicate his time and effort to you, if you have the thirst to prove your worth in the ice.
What’s more, you can feel the thirst to win through a positive rivalry that our specialised member, Saaya, is ready to offer. Even though the difference in skill and her ‘Tsun-Tsun’ attitude might make you resent her, in time you will realise that her only intention is to have a healthy showdown with you on the ice rink! So if you are a fan of healthy rivalry, all the more reason to meet us here!
However, our prices are quite high, considering the amount of services we’re ready to offer you. That’s why, f you want to stay here but are a little short of cash, then don’t forget to ask your parents for money; but also be ready for the struggle you have to go through to get their approval (Who knows, you might just have to fight against and beat 10 best students of the dojo).
We would appreciate your stay, but as a good host, it’s our duty to tell you that our resort also has some flaws too; which were brought to surface by Ryu Resort Patrol, a community with the solemn purpose of rating and pointing out the flaws of resorts.
They said that our resort is a bit too ‘Fairy tail themed’. True, we actually made it in a way that was aimed to make everyone have a happy and joyful time, but if that also causes some guests to feel unhappy then that’s understandable. I think we will focus on turning down the ‘Happy happy’ (Cliché) environment a bit.
They also complained about how we didn’t give Kaoru, our star member, much chance to make an appearance and help with the resort works (Story development).
“I see… I suppose if you could highlight some of the better amenities you provide….”
Oh no, they also praised us as we contributed to the theme of gender neutrality by not only appointing more strong females for our team, but also a transgender, who proves to be one of our key members in maintaining the quality of the resort!
Well, it’s about time, I’ll have to return to my resort soon.
-Hands out a formal brochure-
Please do come, and enjoy your stay at the I-Revo Resort!
“I’m looking forward to it.”
Oh yeah! Before I go, can you please rate our resort based on this brochure? It’s to take a survey of how our advertising campaign fairs among customers.
“Of course! Based on your brochure and marketing skills I’d say I’ll rate the resort a 4 star out of 5. What are the stats given in general?”
Well, the general ratings are 3 out of 5 but the recent ratings by Ryuuji are 4 out of 5.
But of course, you guys (Yes, you! My beloved readers) are more than welcome to rate our resorts based on this advertising of our resort, in the comments below!
And also, thanks for reading this special collaboration! See you next time!
