If she did, it wouldn't be by accident.* She's probably hacked the Octopi's spy cameras by now!

*It would be a sticky situation.

Never been short on story ideas. Wanna hear the twenty I've thrown away while working on this month's comic pages?

You could put them in a crock and let things ferment for a few months.

And, yes.*

Stories serve to illuminate some facet of the world you want to illuminate.

The big two this month are both shonen high-school dramas. One is short: it explores the "delinquents and how they look" theme that Japan has been exploring for a few years. You know, there's an evil-looking kid but he's actually a misunderstood gentle-hearted guy.

My version explores that idea from a bit further away in some slightly interesting ways, but at its heart it's just a silly high school drama comic.

The other big one this month is one that keeps popping up in permutations. It's a bit like Soul Eater on its head: all the students can transform into gear or weapons, so there's a really, really high density of possibilities for teams. Is it "A wielding B" or "B wielding A"? Can A wield B while also wielding C?

It's also got some stuff to say about the nature of weaponizing humans, resilience, and determination. Which makes it sound pretentious, but it's actually mostly about goofy anime combat.

So metaphorically understanding; Hold up your torch and describe what you see on the cavern walls...

And, thank you for the flashes of light we get from your facets that we do see.

It is better to burn out than to rust!

I'd really like to see the misunderstood high school kid, but that's just me. The Mech thing sounds cool, but it is a bit complex for me to grasp that.

But what I would REALLY like to see is what you have to say about weaponizing humans, especially in a light-hearted, goofy way. I would like to see a comic with a moral, or one that raises some questions/debate.

But that's just me and my feedback.

P.S. I know nobody wants to hear it or wants to know, but how long will never mind the gap go on for? At least 3 more chapters I hope.

Well, this comic has either three long chapters left, or four short ones.

After that, I'll have to do a different one.

Well, so far, we've only seen "the third most depressing page in all the comic."*

Gisele still needs to get her skin.

And, more importantly, the main triangle is far from resolved.**

So there is most likely a significant way to go.***

*Page #197
**Barring a major meteor strike.
***Maybe the Octopi will tip their hand.

Go for the Soul Eater like one next. Haven't you had it in mind since Cheer 106?

I have the weirdest desire to take a picture of this page enter the world this comic exists in and walk up to Miwa and go “The girl finally wins, suck it bitch!”…………..but then I realize how psychotic that sounds.

Sort of like a directed out of body experience?

I'd be like,

"Hello Miwa. Mary pounced Jim, and his bone. May I take you out to dinner this evening to the *insert preferable resturant/location here* ? And afterwards treat you to a delectable round of knowledge savoring dialogue and intimate advances?

And then, maybe back to your underpass?!*

ha, for a moment I thought her butt was saying "Woah" and I was like: "Talking butts? Man View is awesome" and now I'm disappointed because it totally wasn't a talking butt

Oh dear .. is this a case of Jim having waited too much and needing the release, or a more general issue of him being a premature ejaculator or something like that ?
cattservant 15th Mar 2012, 7:09 PM edit delete reply
You would have to be a numbnuts to withstand Mary's enthusiasm!*

*Also, it was stated somewhere in the Comments that neither Mary nor Jim were particularly experienced.
Sheela 15th Mar 2012, 8:46 PM edit delete reply
Ah, but experience and enthusiasm aside, some people do suffer from premature ejaculation and then they jizz in their pants, no matter how much they try to hold it in.

Aka. it's an actual, factual ailment, that really does exist !
cattservant 15th Mar 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply
Hiya Sheela!: If one lives long enough, one finds quite the opposite difficulty failing to arise...*

*Besides, up there in The Future they probably have nanobotic regulators for any possible contingency!
