New Grim Tales: "Don't eat the fruit" (10/07/13)

It took a bit of convenience to get here but now everyone's on the same page.

BTW, what would happen if someone ate some of Chi's "fruit?"

I had the same question lol
Simpsons reference is a nice touch.

I'm guessing Chi knew it'd be a long story, since it caused Him to come to Aku.

I imagine something very bad, since it is an extrudation of her own being. And Chi would likey get very mad. The whole scene sort of reminds me of the old Italian saying "Don't eat cherries with the Pope."
Two other minor points

Hmm...... I guess this clears up what Chi actually regards Mimi as.

I'm a little surprised to note that in the last panel, "normal" Aku still has red claws (they were red the last time we saw him, but he was a girl at that time). Up till now I've sort of assumed Chi's red nails were polish (since Bleed seems to really like giving his female characters polished nails). But if Aku has then in his "normal" form maybe in Bleeds universe red is the natural fingernail color of whatever kind of demon Aku is.

Just a small portion of Mimi going through the phone huh? I called that a bit. Though I didn't call this being her first time doing this, so I guess I lose points for that.

Though she did have a reference video and this idea didn't suddenly spring to her, so not too many points. :roll:

Anyways, glad to see a semi serious actual talk going on between Him and Aku. Though- the game they are playing... are all of the pieces supposed to be one color or is somebody getting their ass handed to them?

Yeah, I see it as a small reference to Aku's voice actor. The Pai Sho table.

Well...considering Aku's essence was used to make all sorts of nasty things even nastier and more horrible, you'd probably be tainted by Evil or something and become...worse.

I think it was really clever of Chi to come up with that plan after having just once seen it on TV.
Nice catch at the pai sho being a reference to Mako. I think the only way it could be more clear is if the pieces were in the shape of a white lotus. I find the last panel very relaxing for some reason.

The tea pot is probably another reference to him. Both the shape (that's really more of a Chinese style teacup than a Japanese style one and the color (green Earth kingdom porcelain (celadon ware?)

I get the feeling Aku meant the Pai Sho game when he said that Him is in a lot of trouble

You're calling Chi Mimi again, Bird. I think you did that it the last page too. XD

I'm a little surprised to note that in the last panel, "normal" Aku still has red claws (they were red the last time we saw him, but he was a girl at that time). Up till now I've sort of assumed Chi's red nails were polish (since Bleed seems to really like giving his female characters polished nails). But if Aku has then in his "normal" form maybe in Bleeds universe red is the natural fingernail color of whatever kind of demon Aku is


Or maybe Daddy helped his Princess paint her nails and they got carried away. XD

Trololol. Akutube. XDDD

I had a prediction that I don't really remember the details of now. That there would be a huge war breaking out and after whatever's about to happen has happened- Chi takes Juniors side (As he ish obviously the little neutural hero) to be with Mimi. (And she'll flippin' be on Juniors side like Ryoko on Tenchi.) With Minnie either surprisingly siding with her brother, going for love and his protection over her own self. Or sided with her Mother's private army as the enemy, ironically needing to be killed after the entire original storyline was about her revival.

I would continue blabbering on, but those events are irrelevant at this point and SNAFU's bugging my computer again. My typing is about three paragraphs ahead of what's on screen.

Possibly, though you'd think he'd have servants for that. I suppose it is also possible that he just paints them the same color. This in the 21st century after all, male nail polish is not exactly unheard of. I isn't even all that odd within the context of the comic; Nergal Sr. has green nails and Nergal Jr, has black ones. And now that I think of it, there was a period in Imperial China when having lacquered fingernails was a sign of prestige; like having long ones, it showed you were rich enough not to have to do manual labor. I know Aku is more Japanese than Chinese, but there is often a lot of overlap in court customs between Imperial Chinese and Imperial Japanese.

Servants? Aku seems to spend time with Chi, rather than ask a servant to play with her. There is Demo, tho nail painting is a bit one way with him.

Hmmm... so the title means don't eat the fruit because you'll be eating a piece of Demongo as well?

What do you think Chi's motivation was for choosing the form of a cat?

I looked up and down the page for maybe fifteen seconds before I realized what you meant by that. :D

As for the "girl goes from well to TV" statement, I would imagine that in a way it's referring to "The Ring" and in a way it's not. Seeing as Chi and Aku are essentially Japanese, she was likely referring to "Ringu", the Japanese version that the American one was based on.

Gotta say on the personal basis of either Chi- or Junior for Mimi- Logically I'd say Chi would most likely be a better partner for her.

Emotionally however I'm still tied to Mimi ending up with junior, seeing as they were introduced first as having some small form of chemistry I was kind of like "Oh, hmm hey, this could work" all the way back in the Limbo cabin. Now finding out she knew Chi first throws a wrench in things for who I feel is more deserving .

Emotionally- Junior.

Logically- Chi

By logically I mean that within all reason that I can conceive or think of, Chi honestly has a sort of "squatters rights?" ( its impossible to say that without making it sound like mimi is some sort of object, though considering both she and junior are vastly immature its probably headed that way) In that she already had some form of a pre- established relationship with Mimi, so all forms of reason in my head point to the fact that while yes junior could provide her with an environment where she isn't tainted by evil ( i dont even really know if it affects her that much, she just seems more masochistic an lewd)

Logically speaking Chi seems to be able to provide a better more accepting environment even disculding her "Squatters rights"

Chi could provide Mimi with a good life, no problem. But who would make her happier?
