And we jump just briefly over to Seia, to watch him connect some dots after the events at the start of this chapter.

Random aside... Every time I draw Seia, I have too much fun doing the monocle for some reason. XD;

Thank you for reading as always! Have a happy Wednesday~ catch you readers on Friday!

Seia just can't be bothered trying to go even a little easy on the bad guys. He ain't got time for their "I ain't sayin' nuthin'" attitude. Poor guy, though. Not his lucky day, I suppose.

(Probably weird question: Does Seia's monocle just stay there without ever popping off? There's no chain or anything keeping it from falling to the floor. Just wondering if it's like magic or forever frozen in place there :P)

Yep! Seia doesn't have much patience when it comes to criminals >_<;; the cap'n took one for the team, really.

Regarding the physics of Seia's monocle, this little poem written in an ancient language can be found engraved in tiny letters around its rim:

the monocle takes care not to fall off this face,
even when the brow does not keep it in place,
for should it relax and stray from its path,
it knows it will risk Seia's merciless wrath.

True story. (Though if you analyse the handwriting carefully, it seems it was written in Rince's handwriting.)

Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique?

So... tons of yelling? XD; (And occasional breaking of bones?)

Seia's methods are probably a little less direct. He can crystallise blood one millilitre at a time, after all...

Oh daaaamn...! That poor guy looks like he's been through hell and back!

Yeah, the cap'n took one for the team... but Seia let him live, at least? I think that's a good thing? >___>a;;;;;

Yeah, I love the monocle too. It's really cool for that character.

Monocles in my experience either symbolism someone who is incredibly epic... or incredibly evil...

rufiangel 7th Nov 2014, 12:03 AM edit delete reply
How about both? :D Ehehehehe.

Klink... was not really either, although if you include epic gullibility, then maybe.

It's okay, he'll live! And maybe avoid having ice in his drinks for a decade or so, but that's okay. :D

Nothing visible, I call ice to the gnads.

IIIIII'll leave it up to the readers' imaginations.... XD;;;;;;;;

Love the guards' reaction, stuttering included. (^_^)

And there's a reason for why you always have way too much fun with the monocle.
It's that monocles are awesome! Simple as that.
rufiangel 7th Nov 2014, 12:04 AM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, yay! :D Always happy you pick up on the little details like that!

And hurray for monocles! :D <3 (Too bad I don't get to draw Seia all that often though >_>)

Also I actually wanted to say this last comic but forgot:
I always get that feeling from Madou that he's actually playing both sides. And that we yet have to learn his true allegiance (probably himself) and goals.

Oh wow. Yep, you will definitely find the end of this chapter interesting, then... ;)
mjkj 6th Nov 2014, 6:17 AM edit delete reply
Oh, he is connecting dots... are some more... ;)

rufiangel 7th Nov 2014, 12:07 AM edit delete reply
Ah, thank you~! *bends over to pick them all up* XD;

Seia's fast on the uptake! Won't be long before he manages to see the constellation at hand...
mjkj 7th Nov 2014, 4:57 PM edit delete reply
...or make his own constellations...

rufiangel 7th Nov 2014, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
Oh man, of course. Seia IS a constellation. Why didn't I think of that? XD;;;
