I just want to share with you guys something I found, but since this is a translation blog, don’t you think that I need to release a chapter at the same time? ^_~ By the way, I’m being evil as the three other chapters to complete the Chastity Testing Beast part will be release on the 29th as planned. No worry, this chapter doesn’t have much cliffhanger.
So, what did I want to share with you guys? I just stumble upon a puppet show, YES, a puppet show called Thunderbolt Fantasy. BUT, that puppet show made out of ball-jointed dolls (BJD) is impressive. Although, the original language is japanese, but the storyline background is chinese, or to be precise, Xuan Huan genre.
The animation is quite smooth and although the puppets don’t have expression, the body movements and the voices give out emotions which compensate really well for lack of expression on the puppets.
You can check out the video of the fight.
Facebook link to the video with english subs here.
This puppet show is quite far away from Sesame Street and Thunderbirds. Don’t you think?
Anyway, See you on July 29th.
Hi! Thank you for this chapter and I’m looking forward to the other chapters on July 29th, translator Grenn!
BTW, thanks for sharing, “Thunderbolt Fantasy”. I’m not really into puppet shows or anything like that, but you’re right, the puppets are exquisitely made with stunning costumes. The animation is smooth and impressive just as you’ve said. In the FB comment portion of Enter The Fally Zone, it said, ” You’ll probably look at this & think “WHAT THE F#CK IS THIS SH#@”- LOL- absolutely right, but it’s really worth watching. Hehe!

Yeah, look forward to the following chapters, because it’s less cliché than you might thought. :3
Personally, I found it amazing that in an era of computer animation and special effects, puppet show still have much to offer and could follow up in such a way. It’s like stop motion animation. I guess puppet shows still have much to offer depending on how it’s done.
