Apropos of nothing, I thought I would share with you something that has been lurking in the back of my mind for several years now. I’m sure that every fiction writer dreams of his/her stories being adapted to either small screen or big screen, but I’m not sure how many of them daydream about possible “extras” to put at the end of the final credits, for the benefit of those who stay all the way to the end.
I am one of those few. Since the Makkarios series was initially envisioned as an anime, this is what I had in mind for the end of the credits of the second installment: the men of the team as a band, performing “Eli’s Coming” (for obvious reasons). Rai would be the lead vocalist, of course, with Lavi as second vocalist and keyboard player; Tru would be on electric guitar and vocals, Damek on bass, and Ronin on drums. It amuses me now that, whenever I hear the song “Eli’s Coming,” this is the scene in my head. For those of you who have never heard the song, I refer you to the Youtube clip below.
