I really like this page. The dynamics between the characters are really cool. :D And sorry for being late again, but we've just come back from a trip and we didn't have the opportunity to put the page together earlier.


If you want to see how the page was created please follow our tumblr.

OMG. I will jump off a cliff if it turns out to be the last page before the hiatus XD Plz Plz Plz just one more XD
Though the next one will propably end up on a cliffhanger too xD
wait...I didn't mean to sound punny.

Anyway I love it too, though Uene's behaviour is kinda shocking...not unexpected but shocking, the way she gave those gifts... Been there, done that, sometimes it feels worse than being slapped in the face, haha.

Edit: Also, Zenwu, you better not touch that arm.

@Fangirl:
Don't jump off a cliff just yet - there will be at least two pages before the hiatus begins. I can't promise they won't end on a cliffhanger though :D
Maybe Uene's behaviour is just a symptom of social awkwardness... or maybe not...

Don't jump off a cliff..."yet" you say? XD

By the way, I saw this bow's chord is taken off... If this a battle axe, I think it's shape should be different.

(sorry for the inconvienience, please remove all spaces...I couldn't post comment with links D:)

It all depends on how strong the bow is of course, but if bow has a shape like Zenwu's after it's string is taken off, it may be actually useless, since it's wood lost elasticity and deformed. Aka it wasn't maintaned well, the previous user didn't took the string off at all, until Uene did. (hmmm or maybe she gave him useless bow on a purpose ? xDD)
I'm not an expert of course, I just know the few basic facts, since I've used to be an archery entusiast... So now I'm trying to find if there any bows that look like Zenwu's without a string- for example a very short/round bow? But I can't really find any, pretty much every bow's shape is inverted without a string :O

btw, from my next comment I shall call myself Zenwuismybae, if you don't mind... because damn, he looks good every time he appears.

@Fangirl:
Your experience with archery is probably way broader than mine (i'm more of a weekend archer), and i see where i went wrong. I used my girlfriend's bow as a reference, and it's a modern take on mediaeval recurve bow. It really does look like that when unstrung, but to be honest she doesn't spend too much time on bow maintenance, so maybe it is kinda useless now. (to see more or less how the bow loks follow this link http://rzemioslo.bolik.pl/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/%C5%82uki.jpg - my gf's bow resembles the third bow from the bottom, only it's more indented at the centre).
Anyway, i did not plan for Uene to give Zenwu a useless bow. I'll try to modify its shape slightly on future pages, but i don't want the change to be too dramatic - also, i am too lazy to redraw the entire page, sorry U..U
And you're welcome to use any nickname you want - Munen says that Zenwu's primary purpose in the comic is to look good :D

...I've come up with even better nickname :D And it's not needlessly possesional XD

Anyway, no, I don't think I'm good at all. That's why I've used a word "entusiast". I commented on that shape, because this fact was smth that stuck very strongly with me, but in fact I was looking for an example like the one you've provided. I wanted to find out whether I'm mistaken about that C shape being a thing in every bow... And in your photo, not only the third from the bottom, but also the last one are kinda similar to what you've drawn, so this proves me wrong ;p

Nouuu, this page is amazing, and I'd never want you to redraw such superb expressions and lighting because of my nitpicky comment D:

I LOVE that he looks at the horse to confirm with it that he was just dismissed like that.

Ah yes, seeking comradery with one's faithful steed (or in this case a possible future faithful steed). Uene also confides in her horse. They put a lot of trust in the wisdom of their beasts ;)
