You were curious how they’ll deal with this whole demon business… Yeah, they do have swords with them. I always imagined the first attack happening as they were coming back from a weekend at Ada’s cabin. Robert would, of course, take the swords to play with them, he’s a dummy like that. I’m not going to show them escape the city in full length because that’d cost us too much time but: this happens at the edge of the city (they were stuck in traffic there), they have weapons (when there’s a ton of easier prey around), in the original story they got picked up by a military vehicle evacuating civilians right after it got dark (and that’s how they got to the camp which we see in the prologue and first chapter).

Aaaaand I have tried setting up a Discord server: https://discord.gg/ttgpurr So if you’re lonely, stressed, want to chat with me and other Replay enthusiasts you can try doing that there. I probably won’t be super talkative because I’ll be doing stuff (like maybe drawing? working? writing Historia?) but I might occasionally share sketches and… I dunno, I haven’t used Discord before and I haven’t used any other chats in a while either. But enjoy, I hope it’s useful in a way!
If you want to know how it’s like in Japan – it’s pretty normal. Folks with kids suffer more because schools are closed and whoever cans works from home but my life is not affected much. I went to the ocean on Friday (it was a day off) and to the mountains yesterday (Sunday) and it was awesome and I don’t feel restrained in any way. Japan doesn’t test many people so we have no idea how many are actually sick. And I saw some toilet paper back in shops too! Oh, oh, funny thing, we saw a small lottery on the street (they do that sometimes) and you could actually win a pack of toilet paper. A splendid idea!
What else… Historia is still free so grab a copy and play it! Let me know what you think! I’m working on the story for the next part now and will soon go back to drawing Michelle <3 She’s the cutest psycho I’ve had a pleasure to create, I’m very fond of her. Apart from that, I bought a bunch of art books and am exploring some other styles so there might be a slight change in Replay’s art in the future (hopefully for the better!).
Please enjoy the comic and stay safe everyone! As one of the memes I saw said: we can safe the world by staying at home and reading manga, let’s not lose that chance!
