I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of Chi/Mimi. I already ship it. No fucks given.

And I've said this before, I'll say it again: Chi is the daughter of Aku. There is 100% nothing Aku hates more than humans. I'm pretty sure Chi will have picked this up if nothing else, and Junior is half-human. This does not bode well for Junior possibly adding Chi to his potential love interests.

Mimi doesn't even seem to like Junior all that much, to be honest. The last time we saw them together she was attacking him...lol

This may sound crazy, and HIGHLY unlikely, but do you guys think that Aku went into retirement so he could take care of Chi? (0___o)

Meh, I just thought of that crazy idea after looking for more pics on deviantart. This one in particular gave me the idea: http://teacupballerina.deviantart.com/a ... -364471124

And about Demongo. He was crushed in Samurai Jack by Aku so only his head might appear as some kind of spirit. Similar to the state where Jeff is in now; http://images.wikia.com/bleedmancomics/ ... ffsoul.png
And that he just is a side-kick of Chi like a best friend.

Though I would imagine Aku being a really good dad, with sense of humor and very caring for her child. While Chi isn't really interested in him, which disappoints him.

I can't see Chi hating Aku like Mimi hates Him, at least. As of now, it doesn't seem like Aku has tortured and corrupted her; quite the opposite in fact, it seems like he gives her whatever she wants and then some.

Aku being Aku, I'm sure he would try to instill a sense of respect in Chi. If she acted spoiled or unappreciative towards him, she'd be scolded or punished i.e. "INSOLENT BRAT! Give thanks to your father for bestowing upon you these many gifts, or I shall take them from you! Aku will not tolerate such impertinence!"

Wow, when I saw Chi, I thought it was Blossom after being corrupting. She was then sent away by him where she decided to take residence in Aku's city. Or maybe Aku had a hand in the corruption. Although, one flaw to this thought is the (unshown) picture of Mimi killing her mother. Then again, him did hint that Blossom had become a "whore" in her "darkest hour." Maybe 'that' has somethign to do with Chi's conception??

I think there's more to it than that.

Him hates Blossom. He's insulting her. We also don't know the details of the deal she made with him. She could have already had Chi, and then went to Him for something that not even Aku could give her, and Mimi happened.

If Mimi and Chi are close in age, and Chi was born through traditional means, why is Mimi the only daughter that Blossom raised, while she left Chi with Aku? Especially considering that Aku is implied as less evil and powerful than Him, if Blossom had a say, she could have kept Chi if she wanted, but Chi already has so many behaviors of Aku's that I'm positive she was raised by him. This implies that Blossom at least trusted Aku enough to keep Chi safe and loved, or was confident that he wouldn't torture and corrupt her like Him did to Mimi, and left Chi with Aku. Remember, Mimi was exploited by Dexter too, but she wouldn't have been safer anywhere else...maybe Blossom was trying to spare Chi of that, and give at least one of her daughters a good life with an ever-present, loving parent.

And of course, if she trusted Aku with Chi, and knew Mimi was being weakened and drained by Dexter for her powers, Blossom could have given Mimi to Aku for safekeeping, but knew that Aku having Him's daughter may have caused a giant shit-storm between them and felt the best option was keeping Mimi herself.

Also, Mimi and Chi may not know that they're sisters if they were separated at birth like that. Aku would know from Mimi's scent, but I don't know about Chi.

All of this lends itself to an earlier remark in another thread, that Aku and Blossom may have had a positive relationship. I almost don't think it's going to be like that, but the more I consider the possibilities the more likely it seems. Not getting my hopes up though...

I've been curious about many of those questions since all of this started. I'm more inclined to go with the belief that Aku and Blossom had a positive relationship, and Chi came before Mimi. She appears to be older, imho. However, there must have been some sort of falling out between the two, due to Blossom's appearance in Megaville. She just isn't dressed like a wife of Aku. Again the contracting belief of that one is that she was hiding it from everyone in Megaville.

The deal with Him though makes me all the more curious. I believe it was to save someone's life, possibly Aku's.

As for Mimi and Chi being raised somewhat separately from each other, I have a few ideas. Most of them deal with Blossom being unable to return to the City of Aku, either due to banishment or

Lol, submit your post too early there?

Aku has scientists. Scientists that dress in glasses and labcoats...she could have worked for him/helped him in addition to having a relationship with him or something.

I would bet she hid a relationship with Aku from everyone too, but then how does one hide being pregnant for nine months?? Unless the pregnancy was rather short. Maybe the deal was being able to have a child with Aku, but in return having to give one to Him too...or saving Aku's life. Both of those are so great omg.

Nope. Just too lazy to finish it right now. Maybe later.

Entirely possibly, but I would have expected some sort of emblem at least.

Oh, Jesus. Now I'm going to think of Blossom's "important missions" as visits to Aku and/or Chi.

Also I guess she and Aku were eventually found out by everyone? Would explain a lot, and the reason why no one mentioned it in the flashbacks is because it became one of those things that everyone knows about and no one wants to talk about.

I never said that she hates Aku, only that she is a normal teenage girl who is very rebellious and spoiled too. Aku would be a funny, caring but strict though righteous parent just like you say.

I am still clinging to the hope that Chi is not truly Blossom's daughter. The closest thing would be a genetically engineered wonder-child created with Aku and Blossom's DNA, in an attempt to recreate the Powerpuff accident. I will steadfastly refuse to believe Blossom is some sort of demon-birthing machine until the comic confirms it or Griddles comes in here and personally says so, dammit.

It's one thing to have Blossom be manipulated by Him. That's one incident and makes for a compelling story. But having a second demon-child by another father just makes her look like the local underworld hooker. Hell, at least Mandy has a logical excuse for sleeping around, being obligated to raise heirs and having a husband literally incapable of creating life.

A girl who has a loving husband/boyfriend and daughter, then gets raped by her worst enemy and forced to carry the child is a hooker and a slut? Not saying that's exactly what happened, but this seems to be the current popular opinion, and for all we know, that is what happened.

People accusing Blossom of being a whore for having two kids, one of whom we know she didn't want, is INFINITELY more messed up than the idea of her having two kids from two different demons. And it's not just you, so don't think this is personal because it's many people on all different places. It's disturbing. And this is coming from the person who made one of those disturbing pairings.

Just..ugh. I'm tired of seeing this everywhere.

I meant that he would have raised her to be respectful and mindful. I'm sure she's upset like every other teenager over being told what to do and what not to do, but those emotions may be best reserved for times when she and Mimi are alone and on the subject of controlling demon dads, lest Chi feel Aku's overemotional wrath.

im hoping that chi here doesnt take interest in junior and just sticks with mimi. considering the relationship of minnie and junior, its not too far off for mimi and chi...

ah and I also believe that blossom and aku's relationship was consensual/positive. cause it feels to overboard to have blossom get into too many "bad" relationships.

This continues to intrigue me. It would explain EVERYTHING. If Aku and Jack are both in GT (Aku in the upcoming chapter and Jack mentioned as a fallen hero), they hadto've met. What if they had a great battle and both died, and Blossom chose to save Aku instead of Jack--making her the traitor, by saving him and thus revealing that she'd been with him the entire time?

And then Him is the only one capable of bringing things back from the dead (i.e. the Rowdyruffs). Blossom could have asked Him to bring Aku back, in exchange for bearing his child. That's like another kick in the teeth to her record: going to a demon to save another demon. No wonder everyone thinks Blossom is a traitor. And Mandy could have said, "She brought it on herself" in reference to Blossom being with/choosing to save Aku in the first place...

No one seemed to think very highly of her. Even Dexter exploits Mimi and doesn't show any kind of affection towards either her or Blossom in the WhAM flashback. If Blossom had made the deal with Him to benefit everyone, or save one of the heroes, they would consider her amazing for making the sacrifice that she did. No, it had to be something selfish, something completely unexpected and unthinkable that she wanted from Him.

Yeah...it would be pretty ironic considering Aku is the most bloodthirsty character, to make him the better option of the three XD

I'm trying to figure out where the idea of Aku and Blossom willingly getting together came from. I know there was a fanfic out there, and admittedly I've only just recently started watching Samurai Jack, but thus far it seems to me that Aku is pure evil! Why the heck would Blossom and Aku ever hook up and have a romantic relationship, much less get married? Unless there's some twist in the Samurai Jack storyline where Aku suddenly makes a heel-face turn to give people this notion, or if Blossom had a psychotic breakdown and went totally evil. There are a limited number of ways for a villain and a hero so far apart on the ideological scale to actually conceive a child, and none of them are a happy meeting.

In short, I don't see any logical reason Aku and Blossom would ever be together, it just makes no sense at all. Again, please, correct me if I'm wrong about Aku, because I'm clearly not getting something here that everyone else is, and it's starting to seriously aggravate me.

I'm not trying to start a flame war. I'm just a little frustrated at the fact that I seem to be on a completely different page here, if not in a totally different book.

You were addressing the person who made it.

As for here, its going off the concept pieces that were on Bleedman's DA. Strangely enough, I'm not finding a problem with the idea. I would prefer it over the idea that she got forcibly rapped by two demons for no apparent reason. Having a relationship with Aku would explain a few things in the comic.


I'm also find it tiring that Blossom is being referred to as a whore, when she isn't. Personally, I would like to abuse power towards those who state such beliefs, but alas, I cannot.

I know there was a fanfic out there, and admittedly I've only just recently started watching Samurai Jack, but thus far it seems to me that Aku is pure evil! Why the heck would Blossom and Aku ever hook up and have a romantic relationship, much less get married? Unless there's some twist in the Samurai Jack storyline where Aku suddenly makes a heel-face turn to give people this notion, or if Blossom had a psychotic breakdown and went totally evil. There are a limited number of ways for a villain and a hero so far apart on the ideological scale to actually conceive a child, and none of them are a happy meeting.

In short, I don't see any logical reason Aku and Blossom would ever be together, it just makes no sense at all. Again, please, correct me if I'm wrong about Aku, because I'm clearly not getting something here that everyone else is, and it's starting to seriously aggravate me.

I'm not trying to start a flame war. I'm just a little frustrated at the fact that I seem to be on a completely different page here, if not in a totally different book.


We don't know if they willingly get together and like it. We're just making logical guesses trying to make some sense out of the possibilities for the story.

And you have an Aku/Blossom avatar there LOL (sorry buuuut you do )

but oh man here we go. I was hoping this wouldn't happen...I'm afraid I'm going to have to open a can of Akubloss on this forum.

There are several ways Aku and Blossom could be together and love each other. I'm not saying that's the most likely scenario by a long shot. The most likely scenario is that they meet and become enemies and die enemies. And just for the record, I'm cool with this. I'm actually pretty cool with any interpretation of this pairing.

But they have a lot in common, and what I think is a high compatibility. They're not far apart on the ideological scale AT ALL, btw. Aku is sadistic, but he's about as lawful as you can get. Same with Blossom, she lets her dark side out sometimes but she tries to uphold the law. They both want stability and order, they just have different ways of going about it. And they want everyone to listen to them.

They're both leaders, bossy, overbearing, but seriously good at what they do. They both know how to guide and direct and govern effectively.

What does leading take? People skills. Both Aku and Blossom are charismatic, and above all, language-based. Both of them read in their spare time, both of them are referred to as being "brilliant", both of them are excellent speakers with strong vocabularies, both of them use communication to their advantage and owe a lot of their success to their ability to lead others with their words. Blossom needs someone who is going to listen to her and will be able to carry on a conversation with her, and so does Aku. In fact, that's about all either of them want, when you get down to it...

Then of course there's the matter of sharing a similar sense of humor, making music (Blossom=rock guitar, Aku=rave music), and being generally preoccupied with themselves...

Blossom is attentive to the authoritative adults in her life, she idolizes teachers (Ms. Keane) and government workers (Ms. Bellum). Aku has been "alive" for millions of years, and sentient for hundreds, how much do you think he knows? Blossom could learn a lot from him. And Aku, he won't hurt a child, or an animal, and sometimes shows mercy to people he would otherwise just kill or imprison. He isn't always 100% pure evil...

Maybe they'll find solace together, having been created by accident and shunned by humanity from birth for things beyond their control. Maybe they're both sick of how stupid the people around them are. Maybe it's just fate and they couldn't help falling in love, despite being enemies, despite being expected to fight. (ok that's really dumb but come on)

Obviously, they're not EXACTLY alike. There's enough contrast in attitude and morality for them to have things to debate even if they were to go out. But that same contrast makes them interesting as a pair and leaves some room for "opposites attracting", I suppose.

I mean, I personally don't understand Blossom/Dexter. A talkative feminist who bases her self-worth on approval from others, and a brooding misogynist who hates being bothered about anything that doesn't concern him...perfect match right there, guys. But somehow, bleedman paired them in PPGD and made them like each other. Why can't he pair Aku and Blossom in GT and make them like each other?

Not saying that it's going to happen, just saying, it's not impossible, and at least there's ground for them to build on if it does happen...

Gahhhh sorry I get carried away talking about this pairing, these are just the very basic points I use when I deal with them. I can't tell you how many different ways people have made them work...you'd have to search DA and shit for that, because they're a crossover pairing and everyone has their own idea of how they would (or wouldn't) work. Hope this clears some things up for you, anyway. ^^;
