this is bananas
okay but I would totally read a naruto/umineko crossover where you see the aftermath of the ridiculous magic ninja battles and meta-naruto has to explain it with realistic period-appropriate ninja techniques
seriously though cmwge would be basically the perfect system for a fancure RP.
pastoral game with each chapter being one “episode” (or maybe half an episode?), and with an understanding that adventure fantasy XP actions are automatically on the table once the fighting starts in a given chapter. give everyone 1-3 levels in a miraculous arc to start with, but lock it behind a campaign convention about having to transform to use wish power.
you’ve got closing out Issues to facilitate those moments when character-driven buildup gets used to support you in a fight. you’ve got the “absent players can play NPCs” rule so bad guys can be PCs (and potentially get their redemption arc). rituals for defining the themes and Special Attax of the series (which then become Transitions once they’re established, probably). and behind it all is the fact that you’re using a system that’s all about the emotional landscape for telling a story that’s all about the emotional landscape.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."
