questions
first, is this to inform the reader because near future events?
second, why does this say 7 layers when an earlier page said 8?
third, why are 2 of the layers absent from the list?
forth, is Trigon among them? (since raven is in GT i can only assume her father is too.)
and finally fifth, does the mention of aku after the last page make anyone else feel it wasn't a joke?

The aku page wasn't a joke. I want to see doomguy really badly for some reason. This is above Doomguy's standards even. And I want to see him fight Mandy.

Not a joke, then? Great!


And yeah, where IS Trigon? Surely he's more feared than the Warden, atleast.


Also, I can't seem to find it... But there's this one cartoon with a blond boy as the main character. The mayor is a devil and a female character is a necromancer?

I don't remember what it's called, but the city they live in might qualify as one of the 2 lesser realms.

1.Now I understand where the Whole Aku story is going
2. Do you think were going to see more adventure time characters
3. The girl in the previous page has somthing to do with Aku and most likely blossom

Javetts Eall Raksha wrote:first, is this to inform the reader because near future events?

Yes. This page reveals a lot to us on how the underworld is constructed and organized. My suspicions are that the underworld and hell are two separate realms of existence.

I suspect that there are other realms that exist that don't count in the Earthly Underworld, such as Trigon's. He isn't an Earthly Demon, so his realm wouldn't be located here, but somewhere else.

Javetts Eall Raksha wrote:second, why does this say 7 layers when an earlier page said 8?

Recon, or an error.

Javetts Eall Raksha wrote:third, why are 2 of the layers absent from the list?

As the comic said, these are the five most feared rulers. I can only suspect that the other level could have something like Halloween Town, or that town isn't in the Underworld at all. Point is that those two levels aren't much of a threat, or the focus.

Javetts Eall Raksha wrote:forth, is Trigon among them? (since raven is in GT i can only assume her father is too.)

I explained this earlier in the post, but I will again. Trigon is an extraterrestrial demon, and not an Earthly Demon. The rulers of this underworld all had some link to the earth in the past, usually their place of creation. Because of that you can consider that this is Earth's Underworld, and Trigon's realm would belong to a different world's/area's underworld, or a completely different realm/dimension all together. I find this assumption to be most entertaining since Trigon could also have been killed by now by the Adult Raven, or didn't survive his encounter with her in the Teen Titans. I forget what happened at the end of that episode.

Very upset that, considering the page title, this character didn't appear anywhere.

Oh my goodness, I am SO freaking happy that last page wasn't a joke.

And I'm calling it. AkuBlossom is Aku + Blossom's daughter.
I could be wrong. I'm about 99.7% sure I'm right, however. Very sure.

... .3% possibility I'm wrong. :'D

Read this page while listening to "Demise of the Ritual" from the shadow of Colossus soundtrack. Even more epic.

Hey guys, Forgive me for being new here. I'll learn the ways of the Snafu comment section soon enough (^___^)
If I do anything wrong, please don't hesitate to tell me.
Anyways.....
Oh my god! AKU!!! He is probably my favorite villain in cartoon network. No offense to everyone the likes HIM, I think he's cool in this comic too, but Aku is just awesome! I still remember my favorite quote from episode 1 of Samurai Jack:

Jack: *shouts out* AKUUUUUU!!!!!!!

Aku: *appears in front of Jack* Who Dares to summon the Master of Masters...the Deliverer of Darkness, the Shogun of Sorrow, Aku.

I hope Bleedman uses it. :) I got a couple of questions myself though, srry for the long post. Like for for example, Aku's retired!? What's up with that!? I didn't even know Aku COULD retire. lol

and do you guys think that Him and Aku are gonna duke it out? That'd be pretty epic!

EDIT: Sorry guys, I'm kinda not tech savvy lol. How do I delete my other comment? I don't see a delete comment button anywhere :(

^ Hey welcome to the forums. :) But there is a rule you just broke, double posting. There's an edit button next to your quote button. If you ever need to add something in your previous post, just edit it in there. Alrighty, if you ever need anything else, we're all here to help.

first listen the mods don't like double posts, it's one of only a handful of things you can do to piss them off.
(also never use assumptions that has already been disproven in the thread, or ask a question that has already been answered in the thread, mods hate that), welcome.

after thinking it over, i decided what i want the most out of this chapter is actually quite easy to do. i want to see some aku bots, i miss all those weird foot soldiers

YES!!! Oh, thank you SO much! ^^

The place is called Miseryville. It would fit as one of the lesser two planes.

Well, well... things are starting to get interesting.
...
Also, (Blood, correct me if I'm wrong) I think the five domains on this list are not five of the seven main realms, but actually exist within them.

Five out of seven ain't bad. Seven's a lucky number. Like Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, right? So what's eight? It's Death the Kid's favourite number.

I guess Griddles has been working overtime, allowing many errors past him. Would it be rude to point out all of them?

It seem HIM, the Warden, Aberdeen, and even Aku are not as highly feared as Mandy. For a formerly-mortal human, that's damned impressive -- not to mention Bada$$. Aku is probably only retired in the sense that he's no longer trying to conquer the world. Considering he rules one of the top Domains of Hell, I would say he is not doing too shabbily. And that's after Jack slashed him to pieces with his sword. Nice move.

An entire Domain named for Castle Grimskull. That's some nice ego, Mandy (well-earned, given the above).

EDIT: Yay, my 400th post to these forums.
