Well...another terrible page. I'm seeking help to try to learn how to actually do an action page. I hope you can all tell what's going on at least.

This week's video is toning this terrible mess. But I also talk about Kei & Yulie, as well as action scenes...don't worry, I'm sure as heck not telling anyone how to do them!

Not reincarnated but going through the same events again and again could be about comparable.
So I would say at least he is in luck because he actually remembers those events and can adapt but whether everything is "corrected" or K is doing the exact same and rigging it is another question. Hm.

Hm...that's interesting...

I think reliving the same thing over and over would be...terrible. Unless I guess it was a good experience...but then would it sour after too many times?

There's a Twilight Zone episode where this guy dies and this "angel" starts giving him everything he asks for...and he's wondering what he did to deserve all the things he wanted. But as expected, there's a twist at the end.

Don't watch this if you don't want the twist spoiled XD It's the whole episode in around 5 minutes XD


I probably should be clear: Kei & Yulie are not remembering past timelines, they're just referencing the several times he has fought Kei (and lost) in the future, before coming to the past to kill Kanna. (not saying that's what you're thinking, I'm just spelling it out in case that's not clear to everyone XD) That resulted in Kei slapping the dragon curse on him...and worse... :(

This will be more clear once we move into the future :D

There's a reason why she keeps him around though. We won't find that out until the end ;) So...reincarnation's not off the table :D Just not what they're talking about now ;D

I will have a whole arc where we see what happened between Yulie and Kei in the future...it's quite a few acts away, though. He's not going to want to talk about it with just anyone...



*Also, I'm sorry it took me so long to reply! I've been reading and watching videos trying to improve these past few pages (they're getting a face lift, when I get a chance!) I still have more studying to do XD

Haha! I think Groundhog Day (not sure if I spelled that okay) says that it does not really matter because you get fed up with the (in that case a day) experience pretty quickly no matter how positive or negative it is :D
However, in that case it was also apparent that there are no consequences since you KNOW you are going to reset it later. So dude could do whatever unlike here.

Ah, okay then! I mentioned a bunch of times how it sucks that you are trying to repair events leading to a major catastrophe and you fail each time and that it has to be taxing. But you meant they fought a bunch of times in another timeline and he only went back once. Meaning it is not assured things are going better OR worse or if the end consequence happens regardless but under different corrected circumstances. Hm.

Fitting several panel's worth of action onto one page is especially difficult! It would probably take me a whole day to figure out how to direct the reader's eye and keep the steady flow of dialogue moving without distracting from the action.

Thank you :3 If anything, I think the dialogue is the best part of this page XD
