Mandy's ALWAYS been in combat training. Her Nergal powers may have allowed her to summon weapons at will, but as far as I can see she had to pick up her skills the same way most people have to; by years of intense training. I imagine that ever since her accident, she's had to spend a lot of time re-learning and re-honing her skills. This would be especially true for archery, since there is a very real possibility she is now half blind and no longer has binocular depth perception. So she'd have to learn archery all over again. Given that disadvantage I'd say she's doing very well. As for why it's Mandy maybe either Nergal Junior(who I think has been her former combat instructor, certainly her fencing master) is occupied elsewhere or Mandy is simply a better archery instructor.

Ohh hey. She has hands. I believe that is a first for her zombie form.

Minnie has some skill, those re-curve bows are a bitch to aim. It's like aiming with a baseball, it takes a lot of practice.

You're right. I think this IS the first time we've seen her hands in her zombie form.

I wonder how Junior's doing with Mimi since we last saw them?

If Mimi has a muzzle on her face (considering what she did to Jr. when we last saw them) when we see her again, that would be pretty damn funny. Freakin' Hannibal Lecter moment.

Of all the magical things the undead offspring of the lords and ladies of hell and Nergals could do-

Her weapon choice is going to be a bow.

Okay.

I mean SURE she already used a Nergal Bow before, but... meh. Maybe it's just practice.

Maybe she has a more kick ass bow in storage?

Maybe shes leaning more towards a Artemis style of combat. With what i've seen it seems like she is, knowing how she like old school. *Artemis is a Greek god who is a master hunter and archer for those who don't know the name*

This is the first time Mandy has more than a tiny dot for a nose.

Also, notice the inverted knees.

I did, back in colledge (you had to take at least two semesters of some sort of sport, and being a less than fit individual, I wanted something I could do that didn't involve too much exertion) Sucked at it (I'm probably the only person in existance who managed to drive an arrow through another arrow perpendicularly) and I agree wholeheartedly with Blood; longbow aiming is very tricky. I'm also a little surpised that given that I think Mimi has some stiches on her hands, drawing the string back hasn't ripped off her fingers (Finkestein must have used some really strong thread) Though given how accurate her shots are and the fact that we haven't seen her fingers on the string, I'm wondering if Mimi is actually using the Saracen draw as opposed to the standard English (In the English draw, you draw the bowstring back with the first two fingers of your hand, in the Saracen you use your thumb. The former gives better distance and power, the latter, better accuracy and control.)

It's been speculated that Minnie doesn't technically have the Nergal powers in the same way any more. Heck, it's been shown to a degree... she can control Junior's inner Nergal, but what if he's not around?

We know that she's had some sword training, and could swing a mean scythe if she wanted to.

Might as well get her trained on the more mundane for something like accuracy. Going straight to exploding-tip arrows might make one sloppy.

Minnie is so bad ass. :grin: Even as a doll, she has amazing combat abilities. My guess is that this is just daily, or at least regular, practice. It's been shown that she goes through extensive training; this is probably related.

Is it "Uniting ... threat" serious or "Involving ... scheme" serious?

This is one of those times that I feel Bleed is talking to us through the comic. Aku pretty much asked what we've been asking.

Sigment Kurosai wrote:You practice archery?

Yup. I'm in an archery class right now as a "relaxation" class.

We're not as deep into the history as Mon is, but we use both re-curve and compound bows, and shoot from a distance of 20-30 yards. The compounds are pretty fun, delivering a ton of power, control, and accuracy. A lot of that has to do with the cam system. Re-curve and your traditional Longbows can't quite compete to that level and require a lot of practice to get good at. As I said, its like aiming a baseball.

With that knowledge I think its impressive to see how good Minnie is at such a young age. She must have spent almost as long with practicing the her bow as she has with all of her formal education combined.

Birdofterror wrote:I mean SURE she already used a Nergal Bow before, but... meh. Maybe it's just practice.

I'm guessing yes. I would use a practice bow and only use my kick ass bow when the situation requires for it.

Etherian wrote:Come on Blood, you know better than that. ;)

Out of everything that is going on, the last thing I have time for is to know the frequency of or if Minnie's hands have appeared. Not that hard of a thing to overlook.

im not sure if its just coincidence or maybe bleed did visit this forum at that time, but that line "uniting against a common enemy" really sounds like it came from my rambling imagination from last week/month/something :grin: .

come on, Blordy, be a badass and use the English Longbow. Your skeleton will eventually be skewed by the tension your body would need to use in firing it. Hell, just stringing the bow is a workout.

And no, Silver, Griddles has been contemplating Mandy's threat to the Hells for years.

it just feels so coincidental with that rambling I made before with bloodlord that they may unite against a great enemy. though mine was more on it being heaven instead.

Everyone has talked about Mandy's threat level or at least thought of it themselves. Writers must have thought of it long before we have.
I mentioned the thought of 'counter-offsprings' on the Aku/Him in retaliation to Mandy's; And the thought of her incoming halfa is provoking Him to look for another counter-offspring. I haven't seen anyone mention this before so I just wanted to share it again.

hm, i figured that minnie would wield something from mandy's trophy room to make up for the loss of nergal power, but she's practicing with a bow... can't think of anything that would fit with that, guess i was of by a mile. i just thought mandy want kids with power, not skill. skill can be made via training, but natural talent and powers, not so much. i find it hard to believe mandy isn't feeling underwhelmed by minnie potential as it is now.

this is evil, not the scheme. i just feel it'll switch over to grim family right as the plan is being discussed, just to tease us.

Finally I get to a page before the discussion becomes something I'm too scared to contribute to!

MINNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE!

OMG I MISSED YOU SO MUUUUUCH!

That's cool. Mandy's face looks.. Odd


She's got a dog face, remember. XD

And is it me or have her breasteses been growing?

But yeah, as for archery- I tried to use a old fashioned bow and arrow when I was younger and I couldn't even pull it back. Minnie badass.

Oh, and I've been waiting forever for the chance to say OMG I CAN'T GET OVER HOW HAWT AKU IS GAEAWUOIBEGFVAOWIGBWAOIGFBWSIBGFWWHUT!?

So... shit's gonna go down. I'm excited.
