Well, things are heating up...but this attack looks even more ineffectual than the last.

I wonder why?

Just a head's up, I'm probably going to be delayed responding to comments. Probably. I'm helping judge a contest over on Tapas, and there are a lot of...very long entries. Luckily, some of the comics I already read...so I have a head start...but yeah...it's uh...uh...I don't think I was quite prepared for what I signed up for X'D But I can do it! I just will be a bit quiet here for a while. I will get to comments, don't worry! I also apologize if it seems rude to not respond!


This week's video is a screentone of a page for the Act 4 revamp, and I talk about screentoning, too. But I admit I suck at it, don't worry: I don't pretend to be an authority on anything.

Wow! Love that top panel. Also the 3D effect in the bottom panel looks nice!

Thank you! I really wanted to make sure it looked like it was popping out :3

I hope I'm not going overboard with the emotion...but I think it's appropriate for this instance.

Can he turn it around? Surely you can also dig up some dirt even on super powerful demons ;)

If he wasn't so angry that the secret's been let out, he really should. I mean, to be honest (we'll get into this much later) he had no control over what happened...so he could go with it, or keep resisting...aaaaand he gave up and just gave in--seeing as he saw no way out of it :*(

But since he's been the victim of her bullshit for years, he'd just given up and was either repressing or justifying the abuse...as long as he could hide it away from everyone, he could deal...(not at all a healthy way of dealing with it.)

But...yeah, Kei's pretty much thrown a spanner in the works and just confirmed everyone's suspicions. Before, The Siblings suspected he was sleeping with her, but since he only turns human once a month, they had no solid proof.

There's going to be repercussions for pretty much everyone here...no matter the level of their involvement.

I am just thinking that none of that has anything to do with the girls or the task at hand. And the girls had plenty of time to verify (even now) that he had it pretty rough.
It probably did not stop at sexual abuse, or how am I suppose to be taking this, but it is not like others should be judging him.
In short: He should not be letting Big K influencing this so much ;)

Yes, he should not let the demon manipulate his emotions. Thing's aren't going to end well if he lets her do that to him...

Edit:
But yeah, Kanna definitely shouldn't just take what a demon says at face value.

So...Kei would be GREAT at news and politics today. She's great at creating distractions so that people aren't concerned with what's really going on...

Oh, did that come off as a bit cynical and jaded? My bad XD


Of course, I think it'd be hard to trust Yulie, too. I mean, it wasn't that long ago when we was flailing his glaive around trying to murder Kanna...so...

At this point, Rin's the only one who trusts him XD And she's out cold. Plus she trusts everyone. Oof...she's a bit naive... XD

Really digging this page! That last panel feels pretty personal, like I’m the one who is being attacked, but I didn’t do anything wrong...😆
