First of all, hi I'm back! To anyone that remembers me I had an old manga idea going on before. It didn't get far so I've started anew with something else (yeah it took a while). I'd love to hear any feedback and other stuff!
I have 5 chapters done in script so far, but I'll post the 1st one for now though!

Chapter 1: Me, my sword and I
More to come soon!Code:EXT. DERELICT FLAT - DAY Morning sunlight is pouring in through a dirty, stained cracked window. Birds are chirping nearby. INT. DERELICT FLAT - ROOM - DAY The light rays are focusing on the head of a dark haired teenager. Near to his bed is an alarm radio which reads 08:59AM. As it hits 09:00AM a radio station starts playing. NEWSREADER MALE Good morning, this is Sunrise radio the best sound to wake up to in the morning! We hope you’re all awake and ready to start the day! The male shuffles getting up slowly out of bed, his face looks drained. The radio is now going over the news. NEWSREADER FEMALE And in further news this morning, we are still having reports of unusual sightings of the black creatures emerging unexpectedly out of nowhere. The male stands up looking back at the radio with a nonplussed expression on his face. NEWSREADER FEMALE So far there have been over 30 casualties. People are warned to take care when venturing outside, and to avoid cordoned areas until further information can be given. NEWSREADER MALE Thank you Marie, and now on to the weather with Jonathan Blake. The male leaves the room heading to a closet in the dusty hallway. He opens it revealing a sheathed katana on a stand which he straps around his back. He heads back to his room booting up his computer, the main desktop is shown as he browses the web to check his emails. He scans over them and frowns realising there is no new mail. He turns the computer off and leaves the house. EXT. HIGH STREET - DAY The teenage male arrives outside a familiar grocery shop, he walks in to meet the owner a rather large man with stubble and a stained apron. OWNER Oh you again! Sorry kid still no vacancies! MALE Do you know if any will show up? OWNER Have you been checking online? You do realise everything is done by machines these days! MALE I’ve been checking, but nothing still, and not a single email! OWNER Hm sorry there lad, come back and try again next week why don’t you? The male sighs and leaves the shop back into the blazing hot outdoors. He looks down the entire row of shops sighing to himself. Suddenly a ringtone plays from his pocket, he takes a cheap mobile phone out and answers. VOICE O.S (loudly) Oi loser good morning! MALE (holding the phone away briefly) You again ‘sis! What do you want? SISTER I want to know if you’ve got a job yet? Or is your broke ass still lazing around in that crapshack flat of yours? MALE I’m trying okay? Look you know it’s not my fault! SISTER It so is! You’re the one who was kicked out for the summer holidays, you did nothing in that house, just sleep eat and crap all the time! He grunts loudly continuing to walk. SISTER So are you ready for inspection? MALE The **** you on about? You can't come to my house, you have no permission! SISTER Says who? I could turn up right now if I wanted to! And watch your language kid! MALE Too bad you wouldn’t find anyone at home. SISTER Oh I forgot, too busy wishing you had a job to pay your rent! (laughing) You could always live with me! MALE Screw that. SISTER Well then, you get a job now okay? Got to take care of yourself, being 17 and all! Bye bye now! She hangs up as he puts his phone away heading to the local park. As he sits on a bench, a group of kids rush over to an ice cream van nearby. He watches sweating as he dips his hand into his pocket. He feels around but pulls out a dirty grey lining. he sighs and sits back fanning himself as the sun glares down on him above. ICE CREAM MAN (waving to children) Thank you! Come again! The dark haired teen continues sitting but suddenly hears a rustle behind him. He hears it again then hears a dog barking loudly. He gets up and sees the dog barking at a small bush MALE Crazy mutt! He looks closer however, and notices the bush shaking slightly. A cream coloured fox with large ears pops out from the bush running from the dog who barks menacingly at it. MALE Hey stop bullying the poor animal! FOX Gii! Gii! The dog continues barking as the fox stays near the teenager's feet. He shoos the dog away and it eventually leaves. MALE You okay? He holds it up observing it closely noticing how small it is in his hands comparing to a puppy. MALE Hehe your ears are cool! He strokes one with a finger and the fox paws at it. It looks up at him at he puts it back down. MALE I wish I could, but I can’t keep pets, I’m too broke. The landlord probably wouldn't allow it either. He sighs and turns away sadly from the fox walking away. FOX Giii! He looks down noticing it is clinging on to his ankle. MALE Huh? You wanna stay? Okay I guess while we’re out it couldn’t hurt. He picks it up and tucks it into his beige strap bag facing the front. MALE Let's go! The duo head down a narrow path with not many people around. It is more shaded due to the trees above. MALE (smiling) I’m James, August James! The fox tilts its head at him. AUGUST Yeah I know, sounds weird right? It continues to stare at him rarely blinking. AUGUST I wonder what your name is? He searches for a name tag or collar, but it has none. AUGUST Oh you’re a girl? I see. Caption: It's not that hard to tell. FOX Gii! August chuckles as she pulls her ears down over her eyes, she lets go and they spring back up making him laugh again. AUGUST You're funny! They cross a bridge over a lake, but August shivers. AUGUST Oi it’s gotten cold all of a sudden! FOX Gii! Gii! A slight eerie wind picks up as temperatures suddenly drop. AUGUST What? What’s going on? The wind picks up making the trees rustle. He hears a loud rumble before noticing a puddle of black liquid bubbling up from the soil. The puddle gets larger and a figure rises up from it forming into a large black creature. Two slits on its face open up to reveal a pair of blood red eyes. AUGUST Crap it’s them! He removes the bag placing the fox somewhere safe. The creatures mouth splits open bearing a sharp toothed grin. It strikes at August, but he turns and draws his weapon. By luck he blocks with the sword, but the blow makes him struggle. The monster pushes him back and he hits the ground hard. It punches at him again and he blocks, however the recoil makes him drop his weapon. The creature grins menacingly sending him flying as it swipes August with its paw. August crashes into a bench trying to get up quickly. Already the creature is advancing on him. It towers above August about to deal the killing blow. FOX Gii! Gii! The fox is standing between August and the creature. AUGUST Oi what are you doing? Get back you’ll be killed! FOX GIIIII! Her fur begins to glow bright yellow as a gust of wind kicks up around her. Her eyes glow also as his sword begins to shake. He picks it up feeling a surge of energy travel down his arm. AUGUST Whoa! What is this light? The fox glows brighter and there is a flash of yellow as it merges into an orb of pure light. August panics as it fuses with the blade of his sword casting a glow all over. He continues to feel the strange energy surge inside him as the sword stops glowing. August looks amazed noticing the pattern of the blade has changed to an orange and black flame design going down from the tip. AUGUST What is this? The creature responds to the sudden shift advancing on August again. August grits his teeth looking up at it feeling more determined. The creature punches at him but he avoids it and swings. Its hand falls coming clean off dissipating into thin air. It recoils but August goes at it. The creature uses its remaining arm to block the sword back and attack. The creature slams its fist into the ground trying to crush August. He avoids it and leaps at the creature who is well open. AUGUST What!? Since when could I jump so high? He sails at speed towards the creature gripping his sword tight before slashing wide across its chest. It falls backwards crashing to the ground and August lands on it stabbing through its chest. Black liquid spurts everywhere from the wound and the creature's red eyes die out before it dissipates completely. He stands on the ground looking closely at the sword observing the pattern. FOX Gii! He drops it in shock and it starts glowing again. An orb of light lifts from the blade changing back into the fox. The light fades and she sits there looking up at him. AUGUST Hey it's you again! August notices the blade has gone back to its original bland design. AUGUST So you were in there? But how!? She pats the sword with her paw as August picks her up. He sheathes his sword and walks over to put her back in the bag. AUGUST That just now when you were in there. That energy I felt, what was it? He touches his chest and feels a rather strange pulse, but not like his heartbeat. Up above in the canopy of trees a girl is dashing from branch to branch. GIRL Come on, come on where are you? She leaps another branch looking down at the ground below. GIRL I can’t feel anything Yuno, are you sure it’s here? YUNO O.S I felt it before, but it seems the energy has dissipated. GIRL Wait! Someone purged it already? Who could have done that? She pauses on a branch for a while. GIRL Hold up, I sense another. Straight down there! She leaps down in front of someone and turns to meet a scruffy looking August giving her a shocked look. GIRL Hey who are you? She leans forward demanding an answer, but then she notices he has a katana and a cream coloured fox tucked in his bag. GIRL Huh? He’s one of them. Yuno it looks just like you! YUNO Hmm? Her blue backpack flips open and a similar looking blue fox pops his head out. He has smaller ears. AUGUST Ah a talking fox! I-It just talked. Hey get away from that thing it’s dangerous! August pushes her away making her fall as the fox leaps onto the ground. GIRL What are you doing creep!? She covers her chest with her arm as the blue fox comes close to her. YUNO How dare he? I’m not dangerous at all. AUGUST Just what is going on here? The girl stands up abrpuptly GIRL Who are you, and what academy are you from? She narrows her bright red eyes at him. GIRL Hm no emblem either, got anything Yuno? YUNO (looking at his claws) Nope he's just a blank! GIRL Do you have a license to use that thing? AUGUST What do you mean? GIRL Your sword you dummy, how can you not know you need a liscence for it? August still looks confused. GIRL Just as I thought! A faker! She looks away from him but he looks at her long beautiful blue flowing hair. August finds her rather pretty but he then notices she's wearing a blue hat which is twitching. AUGUST Hey your hat is moving! GIRL Don't touch it! She pulls her hat down her head and storms off. GIRL Ugh come on Yuno, before he does anything creepy! As she leaves he noticed a blue katana sheath strapped to her back. AUGUST Hey wait! That sword! She ignores him and leaps high into the air amongst the branches. AUGUST That's impossible! August then remembers when he leapt high at the creature before. AUGUST Wait come back! I have questions! He takes after her and now realises he is somehow running faster. GIRL What a creep, first he touches me and then stares at me, honestly? Yuno rests his chin on his paws YUNO No idea why he acted like that, but I found something else peculiar. GIRL And that is? YUNO That's the exact same area where the dark being was purged! GIRL WHAT? Wait what is that? She senses something and looks down. GIRL Wait, is that? AUGUST Hey I want to talk to you! August is down below having caught up with her still running. GIRL Impossible! How is that freak keeping up with me? He's a fake we checked out! YUNO Maybe we should talk to him? She decides to stop and drops down to his level. August catches up without breaking a sweat. AUGUST (fidgeting with his hands) I have to ask you something. GIRL You'd better not be coming onto me faker! AUGUST No, your sword can I see it? She turns sharply away from him. GIRL Nice try kid but you can’t. You don’t even have a license! AUGUST Kid? I’m 17! And what is this liscence crap!? GIRL You're definitely not a hunter! AUGUST A hunter? GIRL You ask too many questions! AUGUST Where are you heading? Caption: He's not listening. GIRL Did you not just hear me creep!? AUGUST Your hat again! GIRL (pulling it down) Oh no. August reaches out to help. GIRL Don't touch me creepy pervert! She lets go to push him away, but as she does her hat springs off her head. August looks in awe as a pair of furry blue ears twitch amongst her hair. She stands in silence blank faced as August continues to stare. AUGUST They're real? She remains mute as she snatches her hat from the ground, and before August can say anything she storms off in a hurry. AUGUST What was that about? And those ears, is she even human? The cream coloured fox pops her head out from the bag looking up into his eyes. AUGUST Did you see that blue one? He could talk, and since when were foxes blue? She blinks staring casually at him AUGUST Well, can you talk too? FOX Gii! AUGUST Oh well. Hey I'm getting hungry again, what about you? She continues to look at him as his stomach rumbles. AUGUST Sadly I can’t get a meal though, I thought my hunger would go away, but it’s back from yesterday. He leaves the park having no other business there. INT.UNKNOWN BUILDING - DAY A man with a barely visible face is standing at window, he rubs his stubbly chin continuing to observe. MAN Seems there's another one out there. VOICE O.S Are you sure? MAN I'm quite sure, it's been a while since one has popped up, but he's compatible alright! VOICE O.S So its found him? MAN (clenching fist) Yes, the light has found him. Now all we have to do is get him! He turns to face the unseen person. MAN Send out a team, hurry! VOICE O.S Yes sir.

Not so sure why the code box is so small. Is there a way to make it larger?
