This Pokemon is quite gullible at times but can show promise of intelligence sometimes! But, this occurrence is rare.
Jasper hell yeah man

oh fuck oh shit my dots...............................................................................................................................
WELCOOOOOOOME TO THE NEW FORUMS! I've been following your comics for a handful of months now, but it wasn't until we were in the middle of Tapatalk nonsense that I found you, so commenting really went by the wayside. I really like how this run has developed, and it feels a lot like now that Aerik is around and the whole backstory and lore has reached a... uh, end? sort of, that it's really all progressing. Kind of like all the history was the base for everything to start moving forward, and holy shit is it GOING now. I wasn't sure that Aerik had actually picked up on anything until now. And I am TERRIFIED to see him or anyone else turn into a "villain" as a result. That's a good sign, that I'm already sobbing over theoretical situations. ;-;

Anyways, I'm happy to see you here. @ me when you update, I'm jumping at the opportunity to be able to keep close track of your updates now. Have fun, and happy Nuzlocking!

So the new forum smell gave me a chance to see what other kinds of runs are out there and I just binged everything you got up until now (wow I caught up at the worst time lol) and this is great.

I love your character designs for the gijinkas, like even one of the same species looks so different yet they are also recognizable as that species. I could usually guess which gijinka they are before the comic said what they were, which is always nice (not to knock on you providing their species either, that’s very helpful, I just kind of treat it like a game for myself).

Alrune is such a sweet little guy, and I liked seeing Leonhe go from “god I have to watch these brats” to “these are my kids and I’ll protect them with my life!” I feel like Leonhe’s kind of the standout character in this, and I feel that out of everyone you put the most passion into him and that’s cool! I love it when I can clearly see how much work a creator puts into their stuff. But I also feel like Leonhe is also a weakness of the comic as well? To clarify, I feel like soooo much of the story has been focused on Leonhe and his past up to this point that everyone else, and even Alrune, have become background characters. Most of anyone that get’s introduced as of late has some sort of relation to Leonhe, so that ends up steering the plot towards his path and the other members of the team don’t get to say much. And I’m not saying that it’s bad to focus on other characters either! It’s great that we get to focus on other people for a sec since it’s not always about the protagonist, and I can understand why you went the way you did since Leonhe is important to the main plot (as is Aerik, and if that stuff wasn’t explained things would’ve been weird). But as a reader I’m more looking forward to when we start focusing back on what’s happening with Alrune and what’s happening with his arm (which is what looks like is happening now, which is cool!)

Anywho, Leonhe aside I definitely feel like action is one of your strongest suits! Your colors are so lovely, and gosh, the way you draw fire is amazing (and wow it reminded me that there are 3 fire types on your team holy cow, that sounds like such a struggle with healing restrictions!).

Looking forward to seeing what happens next~

man oh man thank you so osososo much!!! it really means a lot :DD!!!!! <33 thank you so much for reading and taking the time to leave such a nice comment !!
im glad u like my kids!!!! and yea, i agree that leohne gets a little too much of the spotlight haha. he is my favorite, and this comic is Self Indulgence Central so i tend to focus on him just because i like him a lot. There is some story connection to why he is so prominent right now, and itll become clear a little later! i know i've been neglecting mae a lot too i feel very bad for her pbtbtb!!! the focus will defentally shift back to alrune and benji and mae really really soon, but there is some reasoning to why Leohne is so focused on right now that will become clear later!!
thank you so much!!!!! gosh thank you thaty means a lot especially because fire is the thing i have the hardest time drawing (which is tragic in a teram full of fire types..)
thank yoiu so ososososo much!!!!!!!! it means the world to me <33!!

fuxkin fuck fuc im so mad right now. i cant believe youve done this

for real tho, as much as I hate to say it, if leohne is actually dead I think it will signify an important tone shift in your comic. leohne had somewhat of a dichotomy between how his team saw him vs the fact tha they had saw him defeated/at a low point (gym 1 and with dryas? i think thats it?). He filled the leader role despite not fitting into it in the traditional sense. Nonetheless, Up until this point he has been the only real "adult" on the team, and without him, someone is going have to step up to the plate. (adult in " " because aerik.. uh he tries) Whether that be an already existing member or someone new will be interesting, although I'd love to see it be aerik, assuming he even wants to stay with these kids. Aerik seems to be the only one that finds alrune's uh, essence, for lack of better word, to be concerning. like in a sinister way.

ah so in other words you got me fuckin analyzing your comic so that says something

also while i was writing that up i was looking up some older pages and the after gym 1 leohne at one point tells alrune not to touch him and in the final panel of the update alrune is crying on his chest and why you gotta do that im really getting emotional over a comic

And that’s awesome! I have mad respect for someone who just wants to indulge in themselves, especially when a comic is such a big undertaking. Keep on doing you!

Also um- how dare you with the double cliffhanger???!

First Mae now Leonhe???!

I wanna say he’s okay since he literally said he’s okay and we didn’t get a “Leonhe Level X-XX”-tier death panel but that stab seemed pretty fatal I dunno. Man he’s been through too much to die to some punk :ohdear:

Knell has been on my gotta read list for a while and I'm soooooo so glad I took the time this weekend to check this run out... the STORY the CHARACTERS the ART the EVERYTHING is so fuckn beautiful and I'mon the edge of my seat to see what happens next. I really like that you dont shy away from more gruesome themes in your art, it has a real nice shock value to it and makes those super intense moments hit realhard. I'm super loving this comic and I can't wait to see more updates! c:
