That is one cute duck and one angry home run bat.
O.O Why is the cutting edge of the blade resting on kade’s shoulder in panel 1? It can’t be so confusing that he could potentially cut off his arm, right?
I personally thought he was holding it slightly above his shoulder, thus not actually harming him.
Then again, with it being behind his neck, it’s hard to tell properly.
Though to be honest, it’s Kade. Pretty sure that he’s not aware that he’s supposed to get hurt by those things anyway.
Er… whoops. You got me on that one.
Not to mention the Xenoblade doesn’t cut flesh, not in Xenoblade Chronicles at least >.>
Gotta go replay the game but I am pretty sure that the Mondo’s edge is blunt as can be. Kinda acts like a Sword Shaped Mace then anything else against anything other then the Mech Monsters ingame. Even then it activates and goes a bit lightsabery…
Ah! We both forgot it’s name! It was the Monado! (Yes, I had to look it up for the correct spelling XD)
I guess it also depends on how heavy the blade is… Most swords are quite heavy but you never know; this one isn’t like any sword we have on our planet… though it would be cool.
Traditionally, a properly sharpened sword won’t cut through paper like a knife through warm butter. The sharper the edge, the more likely it is to chip and break. So a sword is sharp in the sense that it can but through a body (or three for a truly legendary sword), but not so sharp that you don’t have to put some force behind it.
A.k.a. Kade really has nothing to worry about. Even if the sword was that sharp, he’s currently a video game character, so real world physics have hardly any meaning.
Actually, the way a sword cuts is depending on if you bring a good amount of for in a arc, or jab. The sword, no matter how sharp the sword is, it will do NOTHING unless force is applied, simply sliding may slightly give him a abrasion, but nothing to worry about. It’s like a axe, but shaped different/
Because until the Monado is activated it’s basically a fancy club. It’s really a lightsaber with a truly elaborate hilt.
And don’t forget that Nicole has a natural advantage as duck hunt!
I found this comic literally 30 minutes ago.
Less than 10 comics into it, I was laughing so hard I could barely breath.
Duck Hunt IS cute :3
Yay Shulk! Shulk and his game is awesome!
Oh Kade, you so uncultured,
I guess with the internet out, Kade couldn’t learn Japanese.
Now he is going to get it. HIT A HOME RUN!
Not that learning Japanese would help, given the Monado’s symbols are Chinese
But at least if he took the time to learn Japanese, he would know it wasn’t Japanese.
I seriously love these comics. You have an awesome style!
Oh, and one more thing. I found this site thanks to your awesome animated ad. (freaking love how it captured the emotion of the characters.)
Thanks. I love the face Kade makes at the moment of impact. I tried to turn it into an avatar, but when you crop down to just Kade it looks like he’s dancing to Thriller.
and that’s… a bad thing?
we could always use more Thriller XD
But then it would make more sense for Nicole to be having that expression. After all, she’s the one who can see C’thulhu’s cousin, or whatever the heck the Skelebunny God is.
Just found your comic today. I love your humor, and Kade and Nicole are adorable!
I’m definitely going to be keeping track of this story~
Discovered this the other week while voting on TWC. Fun stuff!
Let’s face it, a lot of us pulled a jerk move like that at least once.
D’aww the duck. :3
shulk is actually one of my favorite characters. unfortunately for Kade there’s a learning curve to fighting as him.
Shulk is one of those characters who is terrible unless you’re really skilled at using him. He has so much lag, most of his good moves have to sweetspot, and keeping on top of his Mondo buffs is a pain.
Not saying he’s bad, just saying he’s not a character you can just pick up and do well with like Fox or Mario.
is the four a pun or is that the time it takes for the bat to “charge”?
The bat only takes something like two seconds to charge. I just randomly picked four for no reason.
Would have worked much better as a pun if the bat was a golf club.
I was led here by accidentally clicking a State Farm ad on YouTube never been more happy about a miss click
I didn’t realize State Farm commercials are actually Savestate commercials in disguise 0.o
Japanese sword in a Japanese game?
It’s a mystery.
Is there a way to view voting card things 1 to 24 ?
Not right now. I plan to upload them all, with lower resolution, in one massive picture on my FA.
All these people saying they just found the comic makes me feel weird for discovering it 6 months ago as the second webcomic I ever read.
I also found it through the animated ad.
Early adopter. I would imagine that would be weird. Just don’t go hipster on us.
That dog… forever taunting me and my poor aim with the zapper…
So Kade can’t read the Monado? Surprising since Shulk comments on every different art used. A shame the other Monado arts didnt make it in as different movesets. Anyone else think that the different costumes of Shulk should feature the different swords he can use?
New reader GET! Congrats, your comic just become pinged in Brazil, South America. Is there an achievement for that? X33
I managed to read all the way through the comic up to this point, thinking Nicole was male.
