I'm not sure if that matters at this point or not, since Blossom is clearly capable of giving birth in this story (somehow lol).

She could have wrenched herself free of Him's grasp yet been unable to follow him as he kidnapped Mimi. And the comic only says Mimi killed her, after Him kills her friends--we don't know when, where, or how.

The reason why I throw that up there is that Mandy said they were just getting to the good part. I suspect that would be the transformation of Mimi and the death of Blossom. Perhaps not at that exact moment, but very close to it. Mandy isn't a joyful person, more sadistic than anything else. She wouldn't speak of anything positive happening as "the best part".

She can't die, perhaps. But she can be imprisoned and contained. Wouldn't be that hard to find some magical artifact that could contain her in some fashion.

I don't see what decency has to do with this. Let's face it, there is nobility in these realms. Understanding, love, and good qualities. I expect the worst from Him because of what we have seen him to do, Mandy is ruthless, but we know she cares for her kids as well. Aku, guys come on, he was comic relief in the TV show.

The PpG aren't some weird alien piece of creation or bio-synthetic organisms. They still have human elements in them, and I hate it when people use this word "perfect" so liberally too. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder, and we have seen enough from the cartoon and the comic to understand that the girls aren't perfect, but still have their own flaws and short comings they have to deal with. Their physiology isn't perfect either, or else they would never get sick or hurt. Perfect little girls, my ass.

Just the mere chances of this in a normal and planned circumstance of twins, one from each different father would be astronomical. Enough you can write it out, not just on those odds mind you, but also on the concept of them being twins. If they are twins, how the hell did Blossom get out with just Mimi? If Him is supposedly more powerful then Aku, and for some God-forsaken reason this actually happened, how did Blossom manage to get only Him's daughter and not the "twin" with Aku? Surely it would have been easier to get Aku's daughter than Mimi in this case.

That's one of the reasons why I write off this silly notion that there was a fetish fantasy of this PpG gang-bang going on. NONE of it makes sense in how it can tie into the rest of the story.

What is perfect? Is it the perfect morality, physical characteristics, intelligence? What? Because they aren't perfect. The girls have been defeated, beaten, outsmarted, out powered/out gunned, sick, and that is from the cartoon series.


I was just reffering to the Powerpuff Girls intro. "Perfect little girls"

I'm not saying they're perfect, but that was the basis for their exsistance. I know. But Blossom is the 'Everything nice' part.

She's not completely human so I guess the discussion is how human she can/has become.


I don't think you need to be so hard on Blossom. You don't know why she was with either Demon.


I was going with the idea of her voluntarily going to them. Sorry I know my post was long and ranty. But with that it seems she must have been doing it for the greater good or something like that.

No. No one in this group visibly matches each other, the closest thing is, well, was Jr and Minnie, and now that's going out too.


I think my point on that was that she's too pink...


3. Blossom in her depressed state is greeted by Aku and strikes a deal or promise with Aku
4. Blossom has another child and goes and tries to rescue Mimi (who is now Her) and is killed by Her
5. Hearing Blossom is dead raises Blossoms second child as the Lord of Aku City and is now having her retrieve Mimi in her human form.



These are probably inaccurate. Him had Blossom when he separated the two, and from the comic, it sounded as if Mimi killed Blossom shortly after being turned into her. The daughter of Aku also seems to be older than Mimi. I suspect that she was with Aku before she was with Him.


*Flips table*

I give up. I can't discuss this any longer until I see another page. Nothing makes sense. I'm just going to wait.

He was, but he's also plenty terrifying. He literally crucifies slaves that don't meet their quotas, he sets an entire kingdom on fire with one blast of magic, and he's probably one of the only Cartoon Network characters around that openly/canonically gets a kick out of visibly killing and torturing people. He's also likely to be the only CN character to succeed in overtaking the world/universe and maintain that rule beyond one episode.

True he's a dorky little sass master that is capable of making the best faces ever, and maybe he does show mercy and affability a couple of times, but that's not his true self. Aku is probably the most dangerous character in the entire roster set up for this comic. It may be likely that he's played for a more sympathetic role in GT but it's just as likely that he won't be...

GrimlyLoveGunner wrote:I think my point on that was that she's too pink...


Aku might just really like pink (???) Maybe he dresses her like her mother on purpose for some reason. Maybe he lets her do what she wants with her looks and she chooses to try and be like her mom. I agree that she looks a little out-of-place compared to the other characters (who are all rather dark-looking), but I'm sure there's a reason for that. Maybe she's the darkest character of all, and the pink completely betrays that like how Mandy is the "most evil" and wore pink throughout her childhood :P

I hope the update comes soon too, not because I want this awesome discussion to end but because I'M DYING TRYING TO SORT THESE POSSIBILITIES OUT.

I see nothing wrong with her apperance, vis a vis a demonic force. Aku is (nominally) a Japanese evil character (in fact I always sort of assumed "Aku" was short for "Akuma", i.e. "demon") So it helps to look at her through that millieu. Her face is white, calling up reminders of both the white makeuped face of a noble/geisha and a corpse. The pink serves as a counterpoint to the pale face and is also coincidentally reminicient of a pink cherry blossom as is the ornament in her hair which is sort of a cherry blossom (the base)/lotus (the rest) cross. Remember that, for all it is loved and revered in Japanese culture, the cherry blossom does have a sort of dark side. In a certain sense, it is a symbol of death. The reason the Japanese thought the cherry blossom so lovely is that it falls when it is at the height of it's openness (rather than withering on the tree) and according to legend the pink ones are supposed to be pink because they have absorbed the blood of slain warriors. Add on the lotus, symbol of immortality and you have a sort of statement, I am master of life and death (plus pink lotuses are also supposed to be blood stained, though in this case it's the blood of love) Aku is the Master of Darkness, I think his Daughter may be the Master(sorry Mistress) of Darkness AND Light, Chernobog and Belobog rolled into one, the Yin/Yang of evil.

This dual-symbolism business in her design makes so much sense considering she's half Evil and half Everything Nice. I hadn't even thought about that...

I said that Walker rules the Ghost Zone. Not sure about the rest of your question.

Blood Lord wrote:Something triggered Aku, who to my knowledge is eternal, to stop. Perhaps it was Blossom's incident and death, but I'm sure Him would have Aku's army knocking on his door.

Instead of sending someone from his personal army (as a dark ruler, he probably has his own army), maybe he'll hire a mercenary, or an assassin, to tryin' kill Him. I mean, that's what he did in the show most of the time. That way, if there IS some ultimate ruler like Satan, keeping everyone in check, he can avoid detection. Well as long as he can keep from being caught. Just a thought.

Me too. This comic has definitely raised more questions than answers.

I wonder what kind of personality this Blossom/Aku girl will have. Judging by her appearance from the last page, and the fan art, I wanna say sinister and serious. But hell, we don't even know her name yet.

you know im just itching to see a fight between Mimi and this new girl, i wonder if she has the some of the same powers as Blossom or if it's all of Aku's power. i also hope she doesn't get "affectionate" with Jr as well seeing as pretty much Minnie and Mimi (or at least i think) have their eye on him as well.

Meh, I don't know. She's probably been drilled with Aku's severe human-hatred. True Junior is only half-human, but half is enough. Or she could like Minnie or Mimi, or not have a romantic interest at all.

My bets are on her being very close to whatever Aku is characterized like in the comic. Definitely sinister, but I don't know about serious...maybe mischievous or teasing, judging from her smile and what Aku and Demongo are like in canon. Playfully sinister, or something like that.

I want to wish that she's the opposite of Mimi in virtually every respect because that would be adorable, but who knows, they could be both mute with daddy issues and tortured pasts.

An Akuling? Adorable? I guess we'll see.

I'm just sitting here wondering: If this character is to be important- so important that she is the teaser we get for the new chapter- why wasn't she included earlier? Or at least hinted at?

'Especially' if she is ALSO Blossom's daughter. You know- another one?

It was hard enough for people; myself included to accept Mimi, now it seems like common knowledge.

The comic has been ongoing for years, and it seems like bleedman was just recently inspired to do this. He probably already had the writing and everything done for his Mimi stories and got the idea while doing them or something. Or maybe there were hints dropped earlier, and we just don't know they were hints because no one saw it coming. For example, if Blossom was the traitor to the heroes but it had something to do with Aku, and we never expected that or thought it was Him.

Plus Aku/Blossom already has a decent-sized fandom, so it could be a nod to that. I'm sure bleedman figured out how he was going to explain this before he actually did it.

Also, of course she'll be adorable. Her parents are Blossom, the prettiest Powerpuff, and Aku, who is a huge dork.

I appreciate the welcome to the board, I used to be active here years ago but fell out of commenting and stuck to reading. Now I find myself motivated to participate in the community again. That said, I'm going to try and summarize my opinion on a few things, addressing each one in turn, and I feel that perhaps these will be less speculatory in nature and more an expression of my own impression with the current state of the comic; take them how you will.

On the state of Aku, his retirement, and the Underworld;
First off, I would like to say that I really enjoyed seeing his addition to the comic especially since I was a fan of Samurai Jack when I was younger, the nostalgia it brought was nice. On the notion of Aku "retiring" and why that might be, I do have a possible though far less engaging or dramatic theory on why that is. Given that Aku has some measure of control over time (how much is completely unknown to us, it could be the simple ability to throw others backwards or forwards, or it could be much, much more) I think that perhaps his retirement may be a result of simple genuine (or pretended) apathy. Allow me to explain this.

I will assume for this theory that Aku's ability with time extends to knowledge, in a way like Clockwork, if an example is necessary, but I do not in any sense put them close to the same scale in that regard. Nonetheless, given his advanced knowledge of time this creates several things.

1.) Why Aku's position is not challenged by the other "Families", specifically Him or others, besides the Grimm's who I don't see as caring much. (I find Blood Lord's notion compelling, especially when one examines the theme of blood relation in this comic). You don't want to mess with an enemy who could manipulate, or have knowledge of, the outcome of your battle in ways you can't imagine.

2.) His lack of action. His knowledge of time essentially convinced him so utterly of what certain actions would lead to (which did not favor him) that (for a time) he simply has decided to stop actively trying. This is not to say he is not planning or otherwise attempting to manipulate events, merely the mention of his "retirement".

Now, I would like to clarify this notion of knowledge of time before I proceed, I am not trying to say that Aku knows "the" future, a notion I think we can say does not easily apply to GT, nor am I trying to say he knows all possible futures or even a massive number of them, all I am saying is that he knows enough, or thinks he does, to cause the current situation of Aku being considered extremely knowledgeable and being in "retirement" this does not mean he won't try to change what he knows or be active in the future of the comic. As a matter of fact I could see him as many others do being active right now behind the scenes as it were.

On the character of Blossom and the new child;

I have to say that I do not really see how Blossom and Aku could have had a child in the conventional sense (can you even call Aku an entity capable of bearing children? Him and the evil version of Danny can be called organic, but Aku is another thing entirely. That said I do not support that theory of "conception" by the two in that sense. Perhaps as some sort of spirit/biological or even technological creation using input from Blossom in a number of ways (blood let's say rather than actual body, or perhaps even a piece of her soul or spirit itself) or even some kind of clone I can manage, but a flesh and blood child in a similar fashion to the others? I just can't see it given all the conundrums that puts forward. I do have to admit however, that much of my opinion comes from my personal dislike of the idea. I am not saying it is not possible, only that I just don't find it narratively compelling. That is of course my own opinion.

I appreciate your reading of this absurdly long post and wish you all good day, please feel fre to share your opinions on this matter if this post leaves you so inclined.

@RequiemArc

I like that you acknowledge Aku's time-related powers. He actually CAN forsee the future to an extent in the show, by getting premonitions in his dreams. Episode 6 is based on Aku trying to change a future event he foresaw through this method in the most entertaining way possible. Maybe he foresaw something bad and stepped down (or pretended) to try and change that future.

And I honestly don't like the idea of Aku and Blossom having a child either because I don't think it's possible for either of them to physically create one, let alone with each other, even if I ship it. I can't even begin to list the questions this union's inclusion in Grim Tales has created (When? Why? How?? What for?!). But to be fair there's not a whole lot in GT that makes sense (to me) regarding physical/biological reproduction because everyone is inhuman, magic, undead, or some combination of those. It could be that Aku somehow cloned a child from Blossom, or created her from some other means. It would certainly be easier to dismiss her conception as something unconventional or magical/scientific so as not to deal with having to figure out how they would meet and have a kid but that doesn't explain why Blossom's blood or spirit would specifically be used in creating a child (instead of someone else), or why Aku would even want to have a child in the first place.

In relation to the shear possibility here, look at who Aku is. He has the power to transform, we know he is a spiritual and physical being, and he is incredibly knowledgeable. He was very possible that they could pull off reproduction in a standard physical manner. BUT, let's point out a few other possibilities too.

1: Genetics: Aku could very well have created a DNA unit (I guess you could say sperm) that would be able to match with Blossom, and still carry unique characteristics that would match himself. He could do this artificially, or modify a cell within Blossom to carry out this function too.

2: He could pull an Asari: For those that don't know, the Asari are a race from Mass Effect that live for 1000 years, and they are all female, and do not need a male to reproduce, aka lesbian sex actually works.
An asari provides two copies of her own genes to her offspring, which is always an asari, regardless of the species or sex of the "father", and in the case that the offspring is of two asari, the father is the one who does not give birth. The second set of genes is altered in a unique process called melding, also known as the joining.
During melding, an asari consciously attunes her nervous system to her partner's, sending and receiving electrical impulses directly through the skin. A common phrase used before melding is "embrace eternity," presumably to help focus the partner's mind. Effectively, the asari and her partner briefly become one unified nervous system... An asari's melding ability extends to a mental connection as well, which Liara describes as being the true union between an asari and her partner. It allows the asari to explore her partner's genetic heritage and pass desirable traits on to any offspring. During mating an asari and her partner share memories, thoughts, and feelings.

My suggestion here is that Aku basically pulled a reverse move of this, thus getting Blossom impregnated this way through manipulation of the nervous system, and biological reproduction.

Considering Aku is literally an extraterrestrial being, I agree that if he can reproduce, it's probably going to be through means that are unconventional (like the Asari you mentioned) that still end in the same outcome ('normal' pregnancy/birth since this comic seems to have a thing for it).

Is it worth mentioning that Aku is essentially a tentacle monster in canon? I shouldn't have to explain the various ways those things make alien/humanoid hybrids possible...

It's going to be preeetty interesting to learn how this kid came to be...o__o because there are so many different possibilities...it's not like Aku and Blossom are both normal mortal creatures, one is a mutant and the other is some kind of monster-god-wizard-thing. Wtf!

I just had a thought. Him has Aku's Lava Monster...for some unknown reason. Is it possible that this hinted at a connection between Him and Aku before we knew Aku was going to appear? I can't figure out what this might entail or how it could explain their relationship...it makes me think that there was some kind of Servant Exchange. Maybe they're actually best friends, or were :X Maybe they decided to share Blossom, and Aku getting in on this was a deal he made with Him (trading the Lava Monster for a kid) and Mimi and her sister actually ARE twins, ala the ridiculous "twins from two different dads" theory that was in this thread earlier. (That is too insane for me to accept though, I'm just tossing the possibility into the pot).

Jesus, I sure hope that wasn't your FIRST thought.

I mean, for all we know it IS Aku.

Why do we need to jump through all of these gigantic hoops and ignore the easiest possibility?

That it is Aku.

It would beg the question why such a young, feminine form? Why a form that does little to hide his distinguishing features? We know he can shapeshift into a mostly normal-looking human.

Then there's the hair...

Aku has orange hair. He did have black hair in that one episode where he looked like a woman to deceive Jack.

And Bird, it was confirmed that its a daughter of Aku. askura brought something to the table, and BR gave something that suggested an involvement of Blossom with this little girl.

BUT. WHY. We already have Blossom having a kid with Him.

WHY AKU TOO?

Why is this being egged on- no scratch that, who is egging this on- the Writer(s) or Bleedman? There is a point where it goes past 'wow that was unexpected' to 'STOP.'

I have no idea who is helping with GT these days.

The weird thing about this is that it is a popular couple. I scratch my head at it as to why, but it dwarfs the Blossom x Dexter pairing. I think it is interesting to see, but I haven't understood yet why it is an interesting couple.

I'm much more interested in the 'how' than the 'why.' My WHY is less about "Why did Blossom do that" it's "Why did the story maker MAKE Blossom do this again?!"

My "How" is "why" is no-one on the production of the comic NOT objecting to this? It's basically the same shit over and over and OVER again. I mean, first it was Mandy fucking everything with superpowers, from Dark Danny to Grim to Nergal(Junior?) and everything and everyone in between.

But to have Blossom do it to? With Him and Aku? What's to have stopped her from fucking (And having a kid) With every major demon of hell? There is a point where we could have stopped before this got out of hand.

We have clearly passed that.

I would find it infinitely more interesting if it was the absolute FIRST time we saw Blossom do something exactly like this.

At this point it just seems more like a crime against creativity rather than a crime against character.

And the worst part to top all of this off? People like this. This is what the market wants.
