Happy Wednesday! :) I hope you guys are having a good middle-of-the-week.

Honestly, work has been great, but I'm having trouble finding time to do stuff after work, so Chapter Seven is still in the planning stages and I'm a little worried. :'D But hopefully I'll make some significant progress on it today, after work.

Have a great middle-of-the-week, and I'll catch you guys again on Friday! Cheers!

Oh man, it hadn't even crossed my mind that healing an eye wouldn't necessarily mean healing destroyed vision as well. No wonder he needs the magic monocle of magickyness now :<

... I think this makes Cain OP now lol

Well, it certainly makes it more obvious how extraordinary a feat he performed back then. And why certain people took note of it.
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:36 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha yeah XD he just has lousy vision on his left eye~ :'D

Cain has always been Overwhelmingly Pathetic, yes. XD <3

So, they could not heal the acid damage to his eye? - He sure can be glad there are glasses...

Hmmm, maybe Cain can heal him now?

That blurry Ayla looks great - it is quite authentic :)

So, what are they eating?

Lukkai 21st Jan 2016, 8:34 AM edit delete reply
Right now, there's a lot more than just the eye that would need healing. DX
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:38 PM edit delete reply
@Lukkai:- oh, yeah. :'D
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:37 PM edit delete reply
It's not that they couldn't heal the damage so much as they couldn't continually heal it. You can think of it as a permanent status ailment!

And thank you re: blurry Ayla, I'm glad you feel it turned out well! :D

They're just eating the usual fare, you know. Grains, veggies, some kind of meat or fish and cups of pudding or yoghurt. That sort of thing~ XD

Yeah, she looks like she would if I remove my glasses...

Ooohhh! Is that why he wears that lil monocle thingy?? Everything is coming together now...

My vision has become so clear...

I'm loving this side story, Rufi!! Can't wait for moar!

Totally imagined you putting on a monocle over one eye while saying your comment, Serpy-kins!! XDDD lolol

I'm really happy you're liking it so far Serpy! <3 thank you for being so encouraging ;3;* <333 I do hope you'll enjoy it to the end~!

And thus the origin of the monocle is revealed! And forever after, he shall be known as MONOCLE MAN, defender of justice and bratty kids!
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:42 PM edit delete reply
So long as they are related to him, that is! XD LOL, Monocle Man!! That is just hilarious XDDD
Jarvi 20th Jan 2016, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
But he should still be seeing fine with his right eye right? If it is okay, then it should take over seeing abilities and not make any problems. Like my right eye has been damaged so if I try to look at things with my left closed I can't see things clearly. But my left one took over and I see very well using almost only that one. The other is provising some... general seeing xD
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:43 PM edit delete reply
It's more of a status ailment than a vision problem, though I couldn't really clarify this in the comic itself XD it's like a constant acid burning effect that he can't rid his eye of, even if he can numb the pain. So what the seal in his monocle does is cancel out that status ailment. :)

That said, dang, your left eye is OP! @_@ Your right eye should be grateful to it!! XD;;

o_o so thiiisss is why Seia needs the monocle of total rejection. That never really crossed my mind. I always just attributed it to Seia's snootsnoot and refined personality thing that we saw at the Raiz' party a while back. Wonderful job, Rufi!
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:44 PM edit delete reply
To be fair, if Seia wasn't so snootsnoot or refined(?) in personality he wouldn't choose such a fancypants monocle, he might just slap on a pirate patch and say to hell with it and go swashbuckling XD

Kidding aside I love the 'monocle of total rejection', that would totally be one of his titles if he were a Tales Of character! XDDD
Seabiscuit 21st Jan 2016, 1:58 AM edit delete reply
...Awww man. Saw that coming! But I guess Seia didn't.;)
Gosh, I thought his monocle was just like...some swag gear ;~;
rufiangel 21st Jan 2016, 8:46 PM edit delete reply
LOL seamuffin XDDD yes, it appeared to be in Seia's blindspot... ;D

It is sort of swag XD I mean, on top of making him see properly, it also has some added benefits because it's a Gold-level seal :) just little things like extra Spirit regeneration and extra Spirit capacity plus other stat boosts XD <3

*nods* Mmmhmm, I knew it would be, given I didn't do any webcomic work while I was working full-time in the past. :'D We'll have to see if I figure out anything new!

I'm glad things are going well at your job, Rufi! I can totally sympathize with the difficulty fitting in comic time!

Thankyew, Matt! ;3;*

And AHHHH you're my hero in this thing!! @_@ I always get inspired thinking of how you run and juggle things on your end! Just thinking of it now gets me fired up! >____<*)o Thank you for setting such a fine example! <3

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

Well, technically, he didn't quite lose his eye... XD;;

Awww, thankyew Proxy! <333 ;3;* I'm happy you're liking it so far, truly!

It really has been interesting to plot character growth along the timeline for these characters. <333 *happy mama*

Not to worry, in true bad-ass fashion... Even a crippling injury only serves to make the warrior that much stronger!
rufiangel 25th Jan 2016, 5:59 PM edit delete reply
Lolol Outlaw XD that is very true for a vast majority of shounen heroes!

Hmm... I hope I don't have to be worried for Ludwig in this regard... :'D
