Author has written 4 stories for Manga.

About myself:

Inspired from reading Sword Art Online in 2012, I embarked on my writing journey. While I did scrap at least two projects in the process, what mattered was the experience gained. I tend to write stories with a unique or uncommonly seen idea in mind, so it makes me happy when readers find my works interesting.

Story execution and character developments are the top two aspects that I am working strongly on (since concepts and plot alone doesn't make up a story). I am appreciative of readers who take time out to read my works and leave reviews, so a warm thanks to all of you!

Novels that I am currently reading/have read:

Black Bullet by Kazaki Shinden

Clockwork Planet by Yuu Kamiya

Hyouka by Honobu Yonezawa

Iris on Rainy Days by Takeshi Matsuyama

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei by Satou Tsutomu

Yahari Ore no Seishu Rabukome wa Machigatte Iru (Oregairu) by Wataru Watari

Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou by Kougyoku Izuki

Tenkyou no Alderamin by Uno Bokuto

Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria by Eiji Mikage

Sword Art Online by Kawahara Reki

To Aru Majutsu no Index series, Heavy Object, The Zashiki Warashi of the Intellectual Village, and A Simple Survey series by Kazuma Kamachi

Rokka no Yuusha by Ishio Yamagata

My list of projects (consists of known, unseen or works posted elsewhere):

Parallel Encounter (Sci-Fi, Thriller) - Currently my flagship work, started in 2012. The story expands on the conflict between Denscrants and Doppelgangers across parallel worlds.

Volume 1 - An Impossible Encounter

Volume 2 - The Arrow of Time

Aether Warfare (unseen) (Fantasy) - A work in progress. Still in the process of worldbuilding.

Fragments of Tales - A collection of stories that consist of ideas I can't either flesh out much or fit into other works.

Unchanging Memories (in Textnovel) - The first cell-phone novel I wrote. It helped me in expressing my narrative better.

Synopsis: Struck by an accident two years ago, Yuuki entered a state of coma and have yet to regain consciousness to date. Seeing him in that state, grief struck his childhood friend, Iori, as she could barely live each passing day. What awaits her in the future, when she was given an offer to travel to the time where Yuuki had awakened?

Disconnect...Reality (in Wattpad) - My second cell-phone novel that I experimented writing with an abstract concept in mind.

Synopsis: "I've been seeing...weird dreams lately." A fragmented tale. "Meeting with strangers I had never met before..." An unexplored world. "Coming across places I had never visited before..." The memories beyond. "Is any of this...real?"
