Wow, early update :)

*hugs Rufi*


...poor Cain - that looks quite spikey...

...and indeed Lenna seems like she really cares and can help.

...maybe she can help Mikey also...

...beautiful and intelligent and willing to help - even at risk - I like her

...and now her anjelian side is showing... :D

Yup. Those barbs look really painful.

And what a great way of putting this into picture!

indeed.

So, next up: full blast of madou's anti-magic-field spell...

Yep, otherwise I wouldn't be able to do the Twitter and FB posts alongside the update in Seoul. XP

I'm glad you like Lenna! :) She's a cool gal!

XDDD Awwww Rinkel-cupcake I'm sorryyyy! You know, as far as being a meanie to Cain goes... :'D

This is all necessary for Cain to live longer, you'll see~ ;) (not to imply he, you know, doesn't have long left to live or anything)

(nehehehe)

Bear with it Cain. Given all the things you and the gang have gone through, this shouldn't be TOO much more difficult to bear....maybe.

rufiangel
You're probably right, MST3K - this is probably not nearly as bad as Kylie nearly slicing him in half in the second chapter, eh? ;)

... Yup, we're definitely playing Trauma Center now :,D Be strong, Cain, your emo has trained you for this moment.

But man, no wonder he didn't want Kylie to know. That's... that's just terrible.

Trauma Center XD oh man, I couldn't beat that game when I had to do all the surgical stuff and fight off three different types of evil thingies at the same time under the time limit, I tried a gajillion times and then was like 'screw this' and played Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side instead. XD

Yeaaah... Cain had his reasons. :<

Oh, dang, that looks like it's gonna hurt a lot. D:
rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:08 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
It's mostly an internal kind of pain, if that makes things any better/worse :'D

Seabiscuit
W-wow damn that really does look painful...D:
Y-yeah, that looks like way more than a little bit of a sting!D:

E: Woah basically three pages, you're amazing! @_@

rufiangel
She's like a dentist, you know, 'this won't hurt too much!' while they stick a 3 inch needle up your gums :'D

And awww seamuffin naww XDD I was just catching up on updates I'd actually missed last week... :'D

I made my feelings clear on madou and the new girl =p But... for now i gotta ask about Lenna's glasses. Are they functional in some way shape/form or merely a fashion statement?
rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:10 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
They're X-Ray glasses so she can see through the clothing of good-looking men.

Just kidding XD they're both. They're functional, her eyesight isn't great, but the rose-tints aren't necessary - that's the fashion side of it I s'pose!

I hate it when they tell me that it is only going to hurt/sting/burn a little...
Yeah, Right.

Aww, thank you Matt! <3

Yeah, it looks like it'll be a bit of a rough time for Cain and Lenna >_> (mostly for Cain, though)

Fun. He's got a megid-bound curse.

Still chains being chains if you find the weak link...
rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Lolol, that's pretty darn appropriate! XD

And if they can find the weak link, that would be very helpful for Cain indeed.

Lenna's good a Doc Speak:
"You're going to feel a little pressure" = "Bite on this stick until you hopefully pass out"
rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Pretty much! XD Except she didn't give him any stick to bite on, boo :<

Curious her anjelian marks appeared the moment she began that extraction. Is it a racial condition when using skills only they can use and she hides the marks the rest of the time. Or do they fade naturally on all anjelias after a while?
mjkj 21st Nov 2015, 5:28 AM edit delete reply
mjkj
Rufi explained that recently, she is half anjelian and half human. That is why her anjelian traits only show when she uses her anjelian heritage magic.


Edit: She said it on comic 396: <quote> And yep, she only has markings when she's using Anjelian-race-type skills :D it's because she's half-human! ;) </quote>

rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahhh you are super observant! :D <3 *happy Rufi <3*

As Mjkj has commented below, because Lenna is only half-Anjelian, her markings show up only when she's using Anjelian skills. :)

This will hopefully be addressed more formally in the comic itself!

"This is going to sting a little"? That's barbed wire you used just now, don't lie to me! I don't care if it's glowing or not, that's more than just a sting!
rufiangel 21st Nov 2015, 2:15 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD I know, right? If this only 'stings a little' then what on earth would *really* sting? >_>a

But yeah, to be fair, this isn't barbed wire that Lenna produced, but this is the form of what Kylie was feeling at the time she attacked Cain back during the LCF arc. Make of it as you will... ;P

Character creation has started with the SF Spin off RP on the forums run by Robert. If you have any interest in participating take a look at the instructions and post up your character! Insanity, craziness, and general goofy situations abound :D

Okie, I tried to include this in my announcements within the author's note on the next update. I hope new readers participate! :)

this reminds me of fullmetal alchemist. Especially of how Ishvalan Leena's people are! haha

Poor Cain! Grit and bare it!!!!
