Even if it isn't Mimi's stuck. Mimi is for all intentents and purposes, a demon (half demon by birth, probably nearly full demon in practice). Notice that that that is a circled pentagram. That means it's not just a pentagram it's a pentacle. And what is a pentacle used for? To summon demons yes, but more importantyl to bind them. From a classical magical perspective, as long as that symbol is unbroken, mimi literally can't leave it, or for that matter, use any powers she might have. She's basically been neutralized. It may be a little odd that Mandy happens to have beacons up to make one already in place. On the other hand given she lives in the underworld, it's a pretty safe bet that she would have something like this, since pretty much any entitey that could break into her vault would have to have supernatural powers. In fact, every attack she and Lord pain have made so far may have been simply to drive Mimi onto the exact spot she is standing on, so they could spring the trap.


Ohhh shit, I forgot about "pentacles." They all look the same to me. xD

Yeeeeah, this is definitely a problem for Mimi. I knew she was bound to get captured somehow or some way, but not like this. Good find, Kitsune, old chap.

Now, my main question is, how is Mimi going to get out? I mean, come on, she's most likely not going to stay there the whole comic. Just throwin' it out there.

Sir, you appear to be mistaken.
The seal of Orichalcos is a Unicursal hexagram (six points) while the symbol below Mimi's feet is a Pentagram(five poinst).

Welcome to the forum, read the rules and enjoy.

Holy shit, remember that review BR asked me to write? You know, for useful criticism and stuff? Well, I'm exhausted after writing 8 fucking pages, but it'll be done today. Sorry, I gotta recharge after working on it for four fucking hours.

May I ask what profession you are in to have the capability to write such a good expository?

He said it was long, not good, and he didn't say it was an expository.
I don't think there could possibly be that much useful criticism for the comics on this site.

And yet, there's a whole team working in Bleedman's comics.

I honestly can't make a logical connection between the size of the writing staff and the length of any critique paper written on their works.

I was pretty inspired.

I want to be a critic, main reason I put a lot of thought into it.

Well that explains a lot. Hopefully something good comes out of it.

Ah, that explains alot actually, just have a small question though. Which do you prefer a subjective or objective view in reviewing? Cause after reading some of your past comments it seems to me you have a tendency to be subjective in your reviews and criticisms.
