Get the scoop on 10 year-old Akiko and her adventures in space with our review of Akiko and the Journey to Toog! - Page 2

Author: Mark Crilley

Akiko's a totally normal 10 year-old girl, but she's always ending up in the middle of intergalactic adventures with her friends Spuckler Boach, Mr. Beeba, Gax the robot and the weird purple Poog. From scaling mile-high walls to battling robo-bad-guys, her life is anything but normal and she's up to even more adventure in Akiko and the Journey to Toog. Here's our book review!

The Goods

All Akiko was doing was picking up a pack of gum when suddenly her friends show up with an emergency. Poog is in trouble! Before you can say Bubblicious, Akiko's flying off to the planet Toog for an adventure with weird aliens, old friends, mysteries and creepy villains. Can she save her friend Poog? Or will she get her brain melted by a planet full of purple aliens?

Picture Perfect

Not only are Akiko and her friends a blast, the author, Mark Crilley, is also a fab artist who does all the artwork for the book so it's packed with cool pics that show you exactly what the gross brain-melting aliens look like. It brings the adventure to life in this fun story and keeps you on your toes because brain-melting is no fun for anyone.


The Bottom Line

It's a goofy fun story that'll leave you diggin' the fact that your brain isn't porridge, as well as totally thrilled to join Akiko's outer space adventures. Now if only you had friends from outer space...

    ` ` Throw our fists to the air ` ` ` ` Kicking and fighting ` ` Name: Eruna Ichinomiya Nickname?: Just Eruna! Magical Girl Name: Nemurin Age: Fourteen, going on fifteen Gender: Female Sexuality: Lesbian Nationality: Full-Japanese Appearance: (Too lazy to upload photos for this dumb joke.) Magical Girl Appearance: (^) Voice & Accent: An energetic, fairly loud mezzo-soprano which almost never sounds unhappy. She has a Japanese accent. Clothing- Weekends: ~ Unbuttoned white blouse ~ Black long-sleeved t-shirt ~ Black & red skirt ~ White stockings ~ Light brown heeled ankle boots ~ Red hairband ~ Yellow scarf Clothing- Costume: ~ Light orange patterned nightgown ~ White loose socks Clothing- Sleep: ~ Baggy yellow shirt ~ White gym shorts Personality: It's not exactly difficult to say that Eruna is... well, energetic. She's full of optimism, and is never without a wide grin. It's really difficult to bring her out a happy mood once she's in one. She's very cheerful, and finds it pretty easy to go up to people and start talking. She likes to be praised and spoiled by other people, as it makes her feel extra-cheerful. Of course, she does boast about herself quite a bit and the things she's done, but she doesn't think of herself as arrogant, as she still acknowledges other people don't just want to hear a load of bragging.  Another noticeable trait of Eruna's is how much she loves anime and video games. This love has affected the way she talks about other people, often using archetypes to describe people. She also has a love for cute girls, and has no qualms about running up to you and giving you a hug just because she looks like a cute character. She often has fantasies and delusions concerning characters she deems "cute", and you can often hear her muttering random, out-of-place statements about strange scenarios. Eruna, despite her optimism, happens to be the least motivated person in the world, if not the universe. She prefers the company of her video games to doing homework and studying, and has what she likes to call "selective participation". Basically, if you're not a cute girl or you're not getting her any new games or DVDs, she won't do anything for you- not even get you a snack. Due to her lazy attitude, she rarely studies for tests, and her grades are absolutely atrocious. She doesn't exactly care- she's always got that girl from the dating sim she's playing to take her mind off things... Magical Girl Personality: Nemurin definitely has Eruna's more lazy and unmotivated personality. She likes to sleep, and do pretty much nothing else. She's kinda just there, and doesn't exactly seem all that willing to change that, either. When she isn't sleeping or lazing about and putting off her work, she likes to talk to the other magical girls. She doesn't exactly talk about specific subjects, she kinda just rambles. She's very whimsical and dreamy, and rarely seems to have her head out of the clouds. She is quite cheery, and has a friendly, cuddly vibe to her. She just seems like a really absent-minded, yet lazy optimist, which is essentially what she actually is. History: Eruna's life was pretty ordinary, and nothing really odd happened in it. She had parents who worked, she went to an ordinary school, she had an ordinary brother... there was nothing exactly abnormal about her. From a young age, she'd loved magical girls, and pretty much pretended to be one for her whole childhood. Of course, this caused other people to find her quite... well, strange, but it never really bothered her all that much. Of course, she did eventually grow out of acting like a magical girl, but she never really grew out of her love for magical girls in general. She started watching more anime and playing more games as she got older, and gained quite a lot of online friends because of this. She started playing MagiPro because one of her friends told her about it, and of course, she couldn't exactly say no to playing it. Power: Sleepwalker- Nemurin can control the mind of a living target for up to 5 minutes per use of her powers. Weapon: A pink pillow, which is used as a throwing weapon. It's very light to her, but it's pretty heavy to others- especially when thrown. Code: Magical Other Info?: @snoopynwoodstock123  ` ` Do you dare to dream? ` ` ` ` I believe I can ` `
