Oh geez you guys! I am soooooo sorry for this page upload!

I had most of this sketched out and ready for inking, but forgot I was going home for Mother's Day! My train isn't bringing me back until Thursday, so instead of breaking my update streak, I did some crap shading, a touch of inking for contrast, and I messed a bit with the brightness/contrast in Photoshop after taking this picture with my phone.

My parents have no scanner, and since I'm going to be inking it when I get home, I decided against hatching and cross hatching, or adding stippling. I know I'm going to finish it properly, but I am sorry for those of you who read the comic right away! This is a hot mess X'D

Speaking of hot mess, here's the video I did for this week! At least I managed to get this ready to go (some planning and forethought went into last week.)

It's really the most appropriate response at times XD

Is the summon like a last ditch effort when nothing else is working and you just press the panic button? I mean, why would you summon something that clearly does not care what it eats :/

Okay, so Rensha thought he was just siphoning more magic from Keisuma. This magic is coming from Keisuma. When he summoned a stronger magic, she used that as her cue to take over (she is projecting herself onto/into him.)

So he's saying in this page, she's doing it. Rensha has no control, and that's why he's panicking.

She has full control over the magic, regardless of their expressions. They are stolen, tortured souls. They have little consciousness, and are just in agony. But they are fully controlled, they are not moving of their own accord.

Does that make more sense?

They are not rebelling because of their poor state and just rampaging as some angry souls wanting revenge but they are controlled since it is convenient. Ya, I think I get that.

Yeah. :D

They would certainly rebel if they could (or more likely, move onto where souls go when they die.) But Keisuma's demonic hold over them is pretty strong. And they've been "kept" for so long they have by now lost all their humanity and have just amalgamated into a mass of plasma goo. They're kind of solid, kind of liquid, kind of gaseous in this state.

We haven't seen too much of Keisuma yet, but I really hope when the time comes, I can reveal what/who she is well enough. I kind of worry about that o_O

So, Rensha is going to need a Ben Day?
Sorry, I can't resist a bad pun.
