The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it.

Azumi (???) is a manga (Japanese comic) series created by Yu Koyama. It concerns the title character, a young woman brought up as part of a team of assassins, charged with killing three warlords that threaten Feudal Japan with an agenda of war and bloodshed.

Discovered weeping next to the body of her dead mother by a samurai master and his entourage of young students, Azumi was raised from a youth (roughly around 7-8 years old) in the martial skills of samurai and shinobi sword fighting, and the art of assassination. Azumi and her fellow classmates, now at young adult age, are constantly being told about a "mission" they must accomplish, though they have no idea what this mission is.

Prior to setting out on their mission, their master orders his students to "pair up" with each others best friend and proceed to kill each other, thus out of 10 students only five will remain to proceed with the mission. Azumi and fellow classmates, with their master thus begin a journey to assasinate various warlords to prevent a civil war.

Azumi 2: Death or Love

Immediately after the final events of Azumi, Azumi and her remaining friend are stalked by the men of a warlord she recently assasinated. Upon escaping forces they are out-numbered and "out-gunned" by, they join forces with a local resistance and a group of ragtag freedom fighters to kill the remaining warlord and bring peace to Japan.
