Oooooookay... Well, nothing to do but wait and see where they go with this. I wasn't sure if "direr" was an actual word until I looked it up. Apparently, yes, it is.

Still grammatically incorrect though.

As nice as it is for the story to plan out how and why each event happens, it's being extended to an unreasonable amount.
The last 4 pages could've easily been 1, maybe 2 if they really wanted to stress Chi's cunning.
The physics of Chi's body in the last panel seems off too.

Feels like they are trying to hard to make this "dramatic" and failing miserably.

Every time they try to give Chi a 'moment' it fails miserably. The one time people got hyped was Blossom's moment.

Can't tell if you are being sarcastic, or just stupid.

Well.

That happened.

The pathetic padding wouldn't be so bad if the pages update more frequently. We waited almost a whole month, and they didn't even give us a good idea of what Chi plans to do. Although I kinda skipped over parts of this page. Sometimes I wonder if Bleed pads these parts out because he didn't plan ahead. But I think you're probably right about them trying too hard to make it "dramatic", however I think their half-ass attempts at "humor" also takes up a lot of unnecessary space.

I'm still hoping that Mimi is more passive with Chi. It's doubtful given how she's limited on loved ones, but it would still be a funny thing to see.

Also, after a few minutes of thought, I just don't see the point of the last few pages. Chi sneaked a knife into her Mimi sanctuary, to stab herself, in order to do something.
Demo's dialogue makes all of Chi's actions seem as redundant as we think they are. These pages are also so uneventful, that when read in one go, it becomes a blurred skim.

I don't even know why I'm still complaining. :c

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "passive", but I'm hoping Mimi bites the shit out of Chi when they meet. Also how exactly does Demongo's dialog make Chi's actions redundant?

I think Bleedman doesn't realize (or just flat out doesn't give a shit) that he's working within the bounds of such a slow moving comic. If a comic only updates once or twice a month, then you really can't afford to drag your ass, you gotta make each page worth while.

Like you; I don't even know why the fuck I'm still here arguing about this shit. I keep hoping it'll get better, but I barely have any hope left. This doesn't even feel like the same comic I started reading two years ago. Like I said: we might as well call it "Chi Tales" at this point.

I'm still hoping that Mimi isn't head over heels for Chi. Something along the lines of friends, but Mimi doesn't like the clinginess.

As for Demo's dialogue. Chi came to this room for privacy, and this stabbing scene is supposed to make it seem like Chi's 'dying' or at least putting herself in danger.
Demo has said that Aku is likely humoring Chi, and that she's immortal. Even if we already knew this, for those that didn't, Demo assured this information.

Boooooooooooriiiiiiiiiiiing!!! Page told and showed us what we already knew like, half a year already. Can we actually move on to the next phase already, like the actual infiltration of the castle or the actual meeting taking place instead of dragging the same scene for what, 4 pages now? It's been over a month since the last update, so it will be going slower that hot molasses in July. This is why he should take on less freakin' comics. Show some movement of the story already!
