Not much to say here, other than that Mandy's face looks a bit better than the last page.

In panel 2 it still looks way off to me.

I said the same thing in the other thread. Her nose looks weird. She kind of reminds me of Proboscis monkey.

The page tried to be dramatic and failed. It also tried to end on a high note to distract people from noticing how pointless all the information on the page was, which was evidently successful to an extent. I don't think there's anything on the page, we all didn't already know.

Also, Mandy's dialogue seems off. I don't get the Mandy feel from it. I'm trying to figure out what it is. :p

What I wrote on the other thread seems to have disappeared. I basically said at first glance I immediately hated the page, which is a new record for me on a GT. As for the content within, well, let's look at it. We still see the crappy corrupted bull shit sword that should not be at all, then we look at a glance at the downfall of Megaville. Granted, it's just a incredibly small glance and we still know next to shit about what happened, but now we can speculate? Probably not since, again, we know nothing. Next, it seems our couple of death will be leaving for a week to meet with the other warlords, and apparently, there's suddenly and Elder Council! Now, what does this mean, will we get to see all the warlords in one place and the Elder Council sometime this year? Maybe not, but we do have a hilarious scene of Him getting drunk with Aku *chuckles*

......It's not funny, nothing in this page is. This piqued my curiosity just a tad, but it didn't give us anything satisfying. What do I get the feeling, and knowing Bleed's "amazing" story telling, that Him is going to pull some bull shit move to maybe kill this Elder Council and some how start the war using that god knows what else. It's not going to be a satisfying conclusion, and it's obvious this once the focus is taken off these two, we get right back to the "plot" of Chi and her well thought out rescue plan shit. It feels like needless padding, and by now, it almost doesn't surprise me.

Also, Mandy said "shit"! Shouldn't that be censored? :o

The most interesting thing for me on this page, was the brief dialog in the second panel surrounding Jack's sword. However I just thought of something: If Him is shitfaced, maybe that means he'll get all chatty and revile somethings about Megaville, Chi's creation, or if he has any plans about anything with this war biz. Then again, that would actually be progress in the plot, and god knows we can't have that.

Did nobody notice that Grim's accent just...disappeared? He sounds way too 'formal' in his speech.

I find it funny that they put both "the" and "de" in Grim's text. Not in the same bubble, but they're both there. Apparently, they aren't all that eager to try to replicate Grim's speech patterns compared to a while back in the comic.

But really, overall, the dialogue on this page looks terrible in terms of grammar. Pretty sure Grim's "You... didn't." was supposed to be a question, yet there it is with a period, making it look like a statement. Last time I checked proofreading was NEK's job (or at least one of them) for GT, so I can't really say I'm surprised.

It could be worse. It could be over-done. Like when I was writing when I was nine. No French or southern character was intelligible.

But still. I prefer 'de' to 'the' cuz It's Grim and it's his only foothold in the Bitch Palace.

I think Mandy's face is meant to reflect back on what she actually looks like. It's that she was unrealistically 'pretty' in the beginni- I mean- Every single page before this arc.

If the last panel was supposed to break us out of the grim and dim feel of the castle, Him's laughter should be exploding off the page to grab our attention.

Wait, is Him still at Aku's house?

Wonder who the Elder council is. My cameo sense is tingling! I demand Helga and eyeless ponies!

And- it actually would have been awesome, in a melancholy way, if Mandy killed Grim. Eek. XD

The grammar is fucked up on this page.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

Err, Grim can't be killed. Grim is Death itself. You can't get more dead than that. ;)

As for this page, I'm really bummed seeing Grim's speech being f*cked up like that. It would be like having Minnie losing her old-fashioned way of speech.

I'd better shut up before I'm giving anyone ideas. :eek:

Um, this kind of relates to this new page being released, but on the front page of Snafu, when I try to go to the post beneath the new page, the post where NEK says his one liner, I try to go there but it says the requested topic doesn't exist. Anybody else getting that?

Unlike everyone else, the first thing I thought when I read the page was "finally, the story is actually taking a step forward." I'm kinda optimistic about the future of the series, hoping all of this is actually going somewhere. I don't know if that's just naivette or what
You're evil, insane, have no life, and nothing to do cause they haven't invented re-runs of The Golden Girls yet-Nico Minoru
Freedom without individuality is not strength-Vergil
I'm doing this to show you I'm not afraid to die. Never cross a man not afraid to die-Malcolm X
You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders-Jor-El
Your mother and I believed Krypton lost something precious, the element of choice, of chance. What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?-Jor-El

Some times I mess with the threads and merge them together, since we have three threads of the same one. Whichever thread gets merged is lost and normally results in the error you get. but I haven't played with this one yet.
