Ok here we are ladies and gents, another story on the road to Pyro Lee 2: Nexus
. For this chapter we will go over the Amy centered spin off series, Star Girl
Now for this one, a complete abridged story would take an excessive amount of time due to the episodic format of this particular series. The Star Girl
spin off series is composed of 3 story arcs that consist of 13 episodes per arc
. So in order to not run myself ragged and write the entirety of episode 1 to 39

. They will also be separated in to arcs with their own titles in order to maximize organization. Overall Series Synopsis
