Filling in

Haha sorry if you waited for the page on Sunday! I was reading Mahou Tsukai no Yome till late and didn’t manage to throw the new page in. Good manga! And I’m loving the art as well, very enjoyable fairy tale~

This was a crazy week, somehow. Life sure can be annoying sometimes. And I bought Wacom Bamboo Slate two weeks ago, it came to me on Wednesday and boy, that was a bad Wednesday. I waited for it so much and it turned out it is completely useless for sketching, sigh. They even removed my review, even though I didn’t use any curse words. Funny, eh? But I suppose that’s how marketing works nowadays, I’ll just return it and forget about the whole ordeal. Smart sketchpad? Yeah, I’ll try again after 5 years or so.

And hey, thanks for the votes everyone! Don’t think I stopped being amazed by your diligence, you are simply the best \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥ I’ll update the vote incentive sometime this week.

      “Just because we’re in the middle of an apocalypse doesn’t mean the No-Smoking Area laws don’t apply, damnit! 15 feet from any structure!”

      I wouldn’t be so sure. Stefen has shown to be competent with firearms, even if he can’t kill tyem, removing theor heads/other important appendages should buy them enough time for Ada and Robb to get there.

      • Fireheartclan Reply

        Yes but did you see the shotgun in the last few panels? Or any gun for that matter?

        • Refugnic Reply

          Eh, a good apocalypse scientist has his shotgun at the ready at all times. I mean, I don’t think we ever saw his belt or something and that’s precisely where I would go put my firearms in times like this…oh who am I kidding, I would already have been eaten a dozen times over, but this isn’t me we’re talking about, this is Stefen.

          And as for Emily…she didn’t survive up to this point by sheer luck alone either, I’m sure.

          So yeah, while this may look grim, I wouldn’t count the two of them out just yet.

            Just press tab which pauses time and opens your invisible giant back-pack and whip out your combat shotgun. Oh wait, I’ve been playing too much Fallout.

    Get a wacom cintque 13hd its much better and takes a lot less practice than on a pad

    Also is Rob’s a character like Ryuugi from Toradora or is this a one time thing….

    • NotImportant NotImportant Reply

      I don’t like cintiques… Not even sure why, they are just not my thing :C
      And how is he similar to Ryuuji here? I am waiting for that moment when you all realize that this comic is just a mix of Toradora, Spice & Wolf and Berserk (even though I only knew about Berserk when I started writing this) ಠ_ಠ

        two words “tooth paste” coincidental? probably in any case looking forward to the next one (>▼<)y

      • Zenanii Reply

        Hm, if you’re putting Toradora in the same basket as two of my favorite anime and one of my favorite webcomics, I guess I have to watch the series now 😛

        • NotImportant NotImportant Reply

          Toradora is cute! Had fun watching it after someone mentioned it in the comments 😉

          • Zenanii

            I’m halfway through it now and yeah, you weren’t kidding xD
            I think I needed this though after watching mahou shoujo madoka magica 😛

    First panel “are you sure it’s working?”. Present tense. So does that mean that whatever Ada did with the magic circle is active right now? Related somehow to how they managed to kill those demons? Now I’m really curious what spell Ada cast. And does the effect persist even if the circle (glyph, enchantment, seal whatever it’s called) is erased?

    • NotImportant NotImportant Reply

      More like “are you sure magic in general is working”. And about all other questions… well they don’t know yet! Not going to spoil the fun! Discovering the rules of magic is a big part of the story after all 😛

      IIRC wasn’t it to bring about fortune and/or good luck and prosperity?

    • Refugnic Reply

      Well, the spell was supposed to bring about ‘glory’, and to achieve ‘glory’, you first need a situation which allows you to be a hero.
      So, while I don’t think the spell brought about the swords or their ability to kill the demons, it may very well have triggered the last demon attack…the one, where Ada and Robert became the heroes of the camp.

      Why, the runes inside the demons might actually be a replica of the spell Ada cast.
      But, up to this point, all of this is mere speculation…but then again, where’d be the fun if we weren’t speculating wildly? 😉

        • Doom Reply

          Agreed. She’s impressively adorable kneeling in the tent entrance like that. I want to be her girlfriend!

          • JW

            Oh, me too!
            Or boyfriend. I mean, I am a guy. But considering she’s fictional, I doubt gender is an additional barrier. So whichever she’d prefer, really.

      But, more importantly, did she tell him she got the spell from “How To Be Evil For Dummies”?

    I do wonder what Ada meant to say by ‘Sugar’…oh wait, she just wanted to avoid completing her initial Sh- word, huh?

    C’mon Ada, this is the apocalypse we’re talking about, I think you can get away with a little slip on the etiquette.

    Besides, what you originally meant to say isn’t actually a cuss word, but much rather a fairly common expression for excrements, which, by any definition, quite aptly compares to their current situation.

    Why, their entire situation appears to be quite well comparable to quite a big pile of hot, steaming excrements. 😉

    Hehe, Robert “fanboying” – never thought about something like that (even not wanting to let it go even when Ada says there is something) – i really thought that it would be soemthing else, but this is even better 😀
    And now i have and slight idea whats coming next week – Great work as always 🙂

    • Refugnic Reply

      Really? I thought it was pretty obvious, you know, from the vote incentive and all.

      Well, well, let’s see what next week brings, shall we? 🙂

      • NiWo21k Reply

        I really thought it would be something else – but my thoughts go strange ways (and no i am not talking about that what many people would think) 😀

    Ada! Yay! Love her facial expressions on this page. Looking forward to seeing how Ada and Robert attempt to handle the camp’s impending doom.
