NEK: …Wow, just how much does Aku really know O___O; That’s the main ? Ladies and Gentleman XD Never forget no matter how much a person thinks they have someone pegged, he/she can still get them in the end :P

Oh, it's nice to see the inklings of a deeper plot in the works. I love the dynamic Aku and HIM have going, you can look at them and know they've done business with each other for a long time now. Wonderful to see Minnie, excellent marksmanship with the bow there! I can just imagine that perhaps she has been training similarly to this since we last saw her, as a means to deal with her broodingly dark cloud of emotions.

@ babble; and/or the fact that she no longer has her nergal powers to fall back on. Asides from using Jr's body to puppet the symbiote around and produce weapons.

Yeah! Transition page! :D
Kinda throws out the possible involvement of other realms in the form of alliance/mutual beneficiance tho.

This is what I basically got.

Him: Whelp, I pissed Mandy off, but I think we can do something like awesome'n shit.

Aku: K.

Mandy: Good.

Well the scheming is about to begin soon enough. Amazing job as always.

I always found it interesting that modern cultures teach such a dangerous art to children.

Wow, Aku knows a lot more than he lets on, and Minnie seems to be getting ready for something.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Ok now I really am interested to know what HIM is planning. Also I'm glad we're finally getting back to castle grimskull. I felt kind of bad for those soldiers being used as target practice though.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Reading this in both him and aku's voices is a bit uncomfortable. nice to see Minnie after such a long absence.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Glad to see Minnie again, really missed her. I wonder what kind of involvement Hunson and Walker have in this...

We know that Hunson and HIM have an alliance, but I think Walker is siding with Mandy.

I also wonder what Junior and Mimi have been doing this whole time.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 8:38 am

Maybe Junior is training with Nergal and Mimi is right beside him.

Anyone who said "teaming up against a common threat", pat on the back. Anyone who was asking "when is the story going to move back to castle grimskull" wait no longer. I am also glad to see Minnie again.

That's what I thought but way back near the beginning wasn't a bow one of the weapons Minnie spawned from her body? That imply's that she could already use a bow and this is just practice, unless having the symbiote also augments someone's ability to use the weapons they create.

started to doubt myself so I checked. The symbiote is traveling along her arm so it could be argued that the symbiote is correcting her aim.

p.s. should I have used a link instead of inserting the page? If so then sorry I don't know how to do that.

Nice to see Aku getting in touch with his feminine side but....well maybe they shouldn't be trying to get wasted in they're current forms. Also nice to see us back on the Junior and Minnie side, now the stories back on track.

We aren't shown how far the skeletons are. For all we know she's shooting them a couple of miles far. Which would mean she could still keep on improving. Actually, we don't even know if Minnie is really training and not just having some fun. Perhaps it is training and she's going to pull off some superhuman feats in the next panel or go on demonstrating her skill with every weapon imaginable.
Or, you know, the story will just continue on without caring for our small predicament.

I couldn't quote ari-6 without my post being flagged as spam. What gives?

Welcome to the forums, SamRai! I think the image in his post may have been the problem. Just remember that you can quote specific parts of a post by deleting what you don't want.

URLs are usually neater. To do it, click the [URL] above the text box, then just insert the URL link inside. You wouldn't use [URL] and [img] together.

A quicker way is to just put the image location and forget the tags.

It's part of the site's defensive system that targets key words, and phrase that a bot would typically use. It only happens to newer members though. After you hit a certain post count, it no longer detects you.

I can garentee you that she isn't shooting from that far away. There is no way in hell you can get a bow of that size to perform like that.

It's most likely that she is shooting from a range of 20 to 50, maybe 60 yards, but that is pushing it since you get outside of the range of her bow. She is using a re-curve class bow. It's a simple style of bows, and you have to practice with it a lot in order to get accurate with it at all. There is no way to aim with it, its like aiming a baseball at a target, you have to do it by instinct. Typically they have a pull back strength of 15 to 50 pounds (might go higher, but that is the highest we have). Meaning you have to pull that much weight back with the arrow. Verses a compound bow, which is the bow that has the cams and pulleys that assist in drawing back the bow. That class has a much higher accuracy rating and distance, being able to go up to 120 to 140 yards (probably more). But that all depends on the draw back strength, the arrow weight, weather conditions, and the type of scope you use.

That's like saying your muscles augment your ability to lift a heavy box.

For Minnie there is no line of "nergal and not nergal", there was no union of two sentient minds, there wasn't "what Minnie can do, and what the symbiote can do". Because it was her. She was naturally born with the nergal symbiote because she was part human and part Nergal. She did have to train to control herself and her powers, just like all other superheroes, or even us when we have our muscles.

Right now, I believe Minnie kept her ability to still fight and perform her skills, despite the absence of the nergal side. We've seen it in the comic thus far. I believe she knew how to do it and it was trained into her.

Maybe "augments" was the wrong word, I just thought maybe having nergle powers would allow for some feats of strength and skill that a human is incapable of and now that she doesn't have them, she's having to relearn muscle memory.

Mon Jun 17, 2013 1:54 pm

Very possible.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:12 pm

Aku is Wise so he knows all their is to know im sure...i like how Mandy and Minnie are spending some time i am guessing she training for her angry years

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:22 pm

The loss of her nergal demon despite partial controll over juniors is likely the reason why she's retraining herself.

I do wonder how Mimi is cooperating with junior at this momment.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:29 pm

Look, I'm sure Aku is using his female form because his normal form is just ill-suited to hanging out in a hotspring. I'm also aware that Aku is not necessarily male or female, being a shapeshifting entity of pure darkness...

But seriously, this is getting super awkward.

I sincerely hope that Aku is going to assume his normal, imposing form soon, because the thought of Him trying to conceal (or worse, not conceal) a boner is entirely too distracting from my enjoyment of the otherwise intriguing plot. It was hard enough for me to justify the whole left-wing-hey-lets-make-gay-little-girls as Chi being innately genderless, the least Aku could do is wear a damn towel.

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:52 pm

But then it's not as relaxing (sexy).

Re: Woman's intuition...righhhhhht...

Mon Jun 17, 2013 4:06 pm

I might as well forget it. This is probably the last apearance of Aku's sexy female form. I really am tired of the argument on the last update.

Just felt like making a joke on my last post.

He doesn't really have any intimidation value in that form. Well, that we've seen, anyway.
