This strip took WAY longer than anticipated but hey, it's done XD; TA DA! And yes, that's Sho from Chapter Three, long time no see!

Thank you for your patience during my break, the wedding was nice and I compensated for quite a bit of sleep while I was there~

I have a lot to catch up on, especially with the redraws, but I'll get there eventually. XD; Happy Wednesday, see you on Friday!

Sho nough!
Crestlinger 5th Mar 2015, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
Hopefully he puts on a good Sho.
TheMentalist 5th Mar 2015, 1:05 AM edit delete reply
Of course he does! Sho runs both a musical tour called 'Sho tunes' and a drama series called 'Sho time.'
Lukkai 5th Mar 2015, 8:57 AM edit delete reply
The Sho must go on!
Allzephyr 5th Mar 2015, 8:54 AM edit delete reply
Can you lend me that when you're done with it?
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:31 PM edit delete reply
XDDD C'mon, it could have been worse! You should have heard the puns Cici-muffin came up with.

I quote (almost verbatim): "I Cain not take it anymore, can you Kylie stop it?"
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:30 PM edit delete reply
I'm Sho sorry! D: ... or maybe not. XD;
Don't pull that trigger until the final Sho down, alright? :D

Mwahahahaha! XDDD All I need now is Abel to pop up from a pantomime-style trap door from behind Cain!
Lukkai 6th Mar 2015, 6:37 AM edit delete reply
Better yet: Trying to pop up, but the elevator bugs out and sends him back down again just as he starts his epic speech. Then a bit up again, a bit down. And just when he seems to have it fixed, the trap door closes right atop his head. And all you hear is a *thump* and a painful moan, followed by curses about the cheap stagebuilding.
rufiangel 6th Mar 2015, 2:26 PM edit delete reply
LOL! XDDD This really made me think of Slayers for some reason, just that goofy, don't-take-the-villains-too-seriously feel.

Yaaayyyy, uuupdaaaatttteeee *hugs Rufi* ^_^

Good reflexes, Nemi <3

*hugs her*

Gah, interference...

rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:32 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, thank you for your grace over me, it was a bit of a late update~

Nemi's got great reflexes~ :D
Seabiscuit 4th Mar 2015, 11:19 PM edit delete reply
Yay, welcome back!:D

(That alt text oh my god.)

I was indeed wondering when he'd show up though. I like Sho, he's cool. Not as cool or swag as Madou, but that's hard to accomplish anyways.;D
Heheh. He sure looks mad. I'd be more mad at Kylie though, after what she did...
(She did stab his eyes out right? Unless I dreamed it O:)

Gosh they really seem to be outgunned and getting wrecked...D:
Prayformercy 4th Mar 2015, 11:21 PM edit delete reply
yea Nemi robbed him mid air and sleeping needled him though.
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
Yep, that's right! Nemi's really fast and sneaky, so there's nothing to worry about, right? ;)
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:34 PM edit delete reply
XD;;; I am sorry about the alt-text, but at the same time from all the hilarity that has risen from it, not too sorry, LOL.

I'm happy you like Sho! :D He's an interesting character. I hope I have time to go into his backstory and all as the chapters progress. <3

And yes, you didn't dream it XD Kylie DID slice through his eyes and boy was he pissed. But he also got pretty stung when he realised Nemi was faster than him. Not many are faster than the Sho!

Some wreckage is imminent, yes. <3 Ehehehe.
Headgamer 5th Mar 2015, 12:45 AM edit delete reply
Glad you enjoyed your trip. :)

I was wondering what she was doing, but it looks like Sho wants some revenge for the last time they meet. ;)
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
Thank you Headgamer! :D <3

Yar, Nemi was doing what she does best - sneakin'. XD; And Sho is not too happy about the last time they met, tru dat!
Crestlinger 5th Mar 2015, 12:52 AM edit delete reply
*Notes the lack of headgear on all the other people.
Sho really hates hats. Bandannas are fine but if it's covering a head it has to go via Sho.
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:36 PM edit delete reply
Absolutely. XD; LOL!
Spellodello 5th Mar 2015, 1:37 AM edit delete reply
Stop shoing off man! D:

Rufi there's so many sads going on! This page is so purdy but all the sads!
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:37 PM edit delete reply
LOL, man, did not precedent all these Sho puns, they Sho surprised me!

Thankyew Spellu, I'll do my best to keep making the sads pretty XD;;;; (lots more sads to go through >___>)

Aaah this page looks great! I'm glad he "Sho"d up again XD hurray for lame puns!
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:40 PM edit delete reply
Awww yay, thank you Rinkel! :D <3

And yesssss keep them cominggg XDDD though I'm pretty Sho all the puns that CAN be made have been made!
kelverse 6th Mar 2015, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
I dunno, there might be a few puns left that might be Sho stoppers, you never know how great (or awful) a pun is until you say it.
TheMentalist 6th Mar 2015, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
As for BAD puns:
1. I'm going to throw a Rinkel in Rufi's plans... (aye, I had to!)

2. When Ren makes an error, it has been 'Ren Durred.'

3. Leela may be willing, but she's not Abel.

4. Mike looks like he needs something to get him into a better mood. How about a Jinn and Tonic?

*Yeah, I warned you they were bad!*

wooow you finished!! YOU GO GIRL!
You know what I'm always so in awe with how you do effects aand they're so crisp and look so good! HOW U DO THAT?

Anyways I;m glad to see Nemi is alright! Egads it looks like they all have a formidable opponent to face off with! I'm worried for our heroes! D':
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:42 PM edit delete reply
Awww Serpy! <333 Thank youuu! *hug* XD I kinda just use a ton of layers and filters, LOL. Ask me any time about a specific thing and I'm always happy to talk about it XD <3

And yep, I did pair off everyone, ehehe. Let's see how our heroes deal :D
mjkj 6th Mar 2015, 2:48 PM edit delete reply
I hope the dice fall in favor of our heroes...

Nice action. I'm going to try and quasi catch up and read new updates/comment as well!
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:43 PM edit delete reply
JustNoPoint!! :D *glomp* Helluuuu! Long time no see here, though I saw your occasional post back in the forums again! So happy to see you again, thank you so much for letting me know you'll be reading - that makes me super happy! <333
MST3KFan 5th Mar 2015, 6:26 AM edit delete reply

Looks like everyone has an opponent to fight now.
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:44 PM edit delete reply
YESSS! XD Honestly, Nemi is the no. 1 most talked about character on pages where she doesn't even turn up just from people saying 'where is Nemi?' LOL. Now people can stop asking ahahaha

And yep! Though technically, Mike's up against two... XD;
Lukkai 5th Mar 2015, 9:05 AM edit delete reply
Dang, that girl is fast!

Dodging a surprise attack from an unexpectedly appearing Sho is no small a feat!

Soo... With Ren on one side, Cain on the other able to undo the damage Jinn is doing...
Unless there's a decision in the duel between Nemi and Sho (and none of the others seems able to really contribute to that except maybe for a heal or buff), this pretty much looks like a stalemate right now. Or at the very least a long and slow battle of attrition.
rufiangel 5th Mar 2015, 11:46 PM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, yep! Nemi is super fast! :D

Your analysis of the situation is correct... at this point. ;)
Prayformercy 6th Mar 2015, 12:00 AM edit delete reply
Im honestly a bit worried about Madou.. if those buffs wear off well.. bad things will happen to him. (I know hes on the other side and all but kylie is scary when angry)
Kaiki83 6th Mar 2015, 2:24 AM edit delete reply
This party needs a long distance attacker like an archer or black mage or shooter. I hope one joins the party!
Lukkai 6th Mar 2015, 6:51 AM edit delete reply
That would increase their tactical possibilities quite some, yes.

Though it should be someone able to at least hold its own in close combat for some time. Long enough for one of the three close range fighters to come to its help.
Prayformercy 6th Mar 2015, 8:51 AM edit delete reply
For those of you following the RP down below, my leo throws a mean tomato. i think he would be perfect for this job.
rufiangel 6th Mar 2015, 2:29 PM edit delete reply
Hmm, long distance attacker, huh?

I can tell you that TWO join the party eventually! :D
