Strange... In the last panel, it almost looks like it's Licorice that's speaking, yet based on context, it's Ginger claiming the blood is "cherry syrup". Either way, I'm not impressed by the page, though I suppose it's not terrible, either.

Not terrible? I guess standards have gone down.

Certainly, it lacks any real progress. I'm not denying that. Allow me to rephrase. "Not so terrible that I'd want to go at my laptop with a fire axe."

And yet again we get reminded how Bleed's libido is steering this comic. Just look at the last panel of the page.OF COURSE Ginger has to lick the blood off her face instead of just using a handkerchief or the sleeve of her sweater. As a female reader, I'm getting increasingly frustrated on seeing how Ginger is nothing more than a superficial l0li. She used to be so interesting, but I'm quickly losing interest in her as a character.

Also, Bleed, get laid, godammit.

Lico sure is touchy for the one who was making goo-goo eyes at Gene two pages ago.

Yeah, another character inconsistency, I guess.

Still moving at a snails pace. I mean, of course it takes a whole page to show her getting rid of one drop of blood.

Isn't it also supposed to have a hyphen? But yeah, spell-check's been shitty ever since NEK started editing for Melancholy.

Let's not turn Ginger into even more of a waifu, thank you very much.

It could be worse, she could be way even more waifu material than that, taking in mind Bleed's fascination for that kind of character..

But yes, the licking the dead guy's blood in a cute way thing? too much..

Hyphen's debatable and is more of a translation choice--I just know that the extra "i" or an extended "i" is important, it's not an arbitrary little add-on. Extended vowels matter in Japanese--it can mean the difference between saying "aunt" ("obasan") and "grandmother" ("obaasan"), or "uncle" ("ojisan") and "grandfather" (ojiisan). And more drastic differences like "here" (koko) and "high school" ("kookoo," or "koukou" if you prefer).

Thus ends another meeting of the pronoun honorific club (Sorry)

I just realised that blood has been on her cheek for almost 20 pages. They put it in all those pages ago knowing they were going to use it later, like some kind of Checkhov's gun. The the writing of this comic could rival that of that Breaking bad show everyone talks about.

It's...not an honorific, Ari.;

"Oniichan" is a word for your older brother. "Oneechan" is for your older sister.

They're also casually used to refer to people who are like an older sibling to you, much like how "ojisan/ojiisan" are also used to refer to older men/elderly men, rather than just your uncle/grandfather.

No, Ari. "San" and "Chan" are honorifics. "Onii" and "Ojii" are not, and they are what Hiroko are referring to. But regardless, this is starting to get off-topic, so shall we get back that (hard to do, I suppose, when there's so little actually worth talking about)?

Really? My mistake, google why you lie to me?

But seriously, someone went out of their way to remember to add that blood spatter for 17 pages just so we could have this scene here. If that's not dedication I don't know what is.

I'm not paying very much attention to this comic, and even I noticed how horribly inconsistent this was.

You forget, she also tried to blow him up and feed him to a demonic wolf in the last chapter...maybe it was indirect because Hansel was the main target, but still...that RPG was well aimed at that limo, and at least Ginger should have known whose limo that was.

It's still a matter of debate whether or not this chapter is even canon to the rest of the comic. IMHO, it is not, but that's me.

Point is, trying to use the SB pages from before the original writer died to help understand Melancholy may not get you very far.

@Sigmas It may not get one far as to what the original story writer intended (and it never does go far IME) however I feel confident that NeoEdensKing can pick up from where DMajorBoss intended to go with the story.
