    Well, makes sense he has magic. I suspect people without it would find those swords of theirs useless. Guess it takes being pushed past the limit to pull it out the first time. Now to see if he can learn to control it at will.

      Since the swords seem to be enchanted themselves, I don’t think they actually rely on any supernatural abilities of the user?…

    Sigh. Now I need to reread everything to see if Ada and Laura made any wishes that would let them do magic.

    Rob’s Magical Girl powers have come in! Does this mean it’s time for him to get fitted for a cute skirt with ribbons?

    Well…that was unexpected.
    At the very least for the demons, that’s for sure.

    The interesting thing is, that he’s closing his hand to a fist.
    That’s not exactly a hand position for defense (for which usually the open hand is used to shield yourself from an incoming attack) but much rather an attack stance you assume if you intend to attack yourself.

    He has no weapon in hand and no knowledge of his ability to just slice things to ribbons by his thoughts alone (better not tell anyone about that one though, otherwise people just might get a wee bit scared of him)…so why would we assume an attack stance?

    Did the ‘magic tell him what to do’? (Or was it his friend, the witchdoctor?)
    Or was it mere instinct? We will probably never know.

    As for ‘Why now, all of a sudden?’…well, I believe to recall that the prerequisite for using magic is something like ‘to confess all your sins before God’.
    Now, Rob is a pretty decent guy, but there was that one thing weighing him down…and that’s his inability to let Ada go.

    Now, my memory is not as good as it could be, but wasn’t there that one scene, where Rob confessed his obsession with Ada before her, the world, us and, most importantly, God?

    Now, if that was his ‘final sin’, that would’ve ‘undone’ the seal on his magic, allowing him to pull off this little stunt.
    I wonder what Ada’s gonna say about it though, cause he required no pentagrams, magical artifacts or any other sort of catalyst and still sliced them up good.

      Well, his sword is really near, maybe even touching him.
      My guess why he made a fist is that it is a subconcious reaction because he is now kind of used to wield his katana to defend himself. Maybe his power ‘transposed’ the effect of the sword so that the demons got sliced as if he were holding it.

      I think its more of a grabbing motion, he’s shaking his fist at the world and grasping at life. Also I suspect it wasn’t his thoughts but rather his words that was the cause of death. Notice how the word “die” is purple just like the aura around his hand.

      I suspect the same echoes from another timeline that manifest in visions, also provide some more subtle subconscious hints — like prompting him to purchase those fancy swords…

      And I *do* hope we will know at some point!

      More fun than dying, at least.
      Though at the speed they’re going, I wouldn’t rule out they’ll crash from getting hit by the gore.

    Well… getting hit by all of those body bits is going to suck. Especially with the speed that they’re travelling. Pity he probably can’t do it a second time at will, after they crash, with the big fella behind them about to get them.

    I spend a lot of time considering the name of this comic compared to the story and visions. What if you played a video game all the way through and didn’t like the outcome and could restore it back to the beginning to try again. All conscious memories erased, but the subconscious and the muscle memory? Maybe they’re stuck in a replay / time loop.

    • Speedy Reply

      TRON, Matrix, Sword Art Online, Not-a-Villain, Wreck-It Ralph…
      Lots of good company, for Replay.

      Wait! I’ve got it! Ada is really Robert’s best friend Adam. They were playing a PvP VR game, but Adam had to take a potty break, so he let the CPU take over his character. While he was gone, lightning struck, trapping Robert in the game until he wins.

      Adam tried to take control back from the CPU, but he was locked out of his main character. He was able to rejoin the game as Robert’s teammate with Ada, his female character. Adam had created her to see how hot of a girl he could make with the game’s character customization menu. He liked playing as Ada, especially using the third person view.

      The problem was, Robert liked it when Adam played as Ada… a little too much. So, Adam stopped playing as Ada, before she even finished the high school level. Since the PvP match was hard mode, Rob and Ada have to start from high school after every Game Over. Of course, because of the lightning and hard mode, Rob forgets everything and loses all his experience, each time the game resets. Adam remembers what happens, but Ada loses her experience and magic abilities.

      The whole relationship thing becomes clear, when you realize who Ada truly is. The pre-doomed romance playing out, again and again… How many days, weeks, (even years?) has Adam spent, trying to save his best friend? How many times did Ada tell Rob everything, only to see him go mad, take the easy way out, or simply give up? How many times has he watched Rob give his all, only to see him fall to one of CPU Adam’s attacks? The romance is a lie, but the bromance is real.

      (Now, I want to go read Refugnic’s fanfic)

    I can’t help it, but I really, really really dislike Robert. Had it been literally anyone else from the comic, doing this, I would be excited. Ths way, it more like… what a pitty. What a waste. Way to polish *that guy*.
