Huh, it worked. Or at least Uene's giving him a chance. She's so considerate. And I mean that as a compliment. I guess if she sees that Zenwu recognizes his mistakes and is remorsefull, then that's good enough. Maybe she believes in him good enough to know, he will try harder from now on, and there's no point in pressing the matter.
I personally wish she'd be a tad more strict, because, well... You can't forgive people too easily or they stop caring about repercussions for their f**k-ups, but... like I said I think maybe she knows that Zenwu knows.
And... come on, look at this happy face. Look at it. That is some happy right there!
I can roll with that :)

btw. Munen, who's this green-haired guy on your avatar? :D

I was actually wondering if we shouldn't add a little thought bubble explaining that part of Uene's motivation is well wanting her mother off her back. He apologised so he is not totally full of shit and well mom will be happy if she thinks they're making progress. I don't know. Maybe some more exposition is necessary.

As to the avatar character his name is Dalan and he comes from <a href="">this picture</a>. He is a character from a different earlier story called 'Castling' set in the same world where OCaC is set. Joolita says he is my favourite and in 'Castling' it might be actually true, although I'm not sure I have like an all time favourite from all the stories. Dalan is a young poet and 'Castling' is a court drama set in a rococo like period in the region where Ruiso comes from. Dalan is from the era when everyone on that world had manga coloured hair. If we kept that Zenwu's hair would be indigo blue and Uene's dark purple ;P. <a href=" irection-ltr-color">Here</a> I wrote a little how we are totally lazy character creators :P

I wonder if it's really needed, I mean... She already thought that few pages ago, before leaving the tent, right? So that would have been a repetition?

There's this thing with those pages being published weekly. That might be a reason why I forget some details, and once new page is published, things don't seem as clear as they otherwise would be. I'm not implying that ohhh you should draw more or anything, I mean, you have to live your life outside this comic, and page per week already feels like a lot to keep up with on regular basis.
I rather want to say... It's not the narrative's fault at all. Maybe it's just the side effect of the schedule. It kinda forces to experience the comic as a set if individual scenes rather than one long and fluid one.
I'm sure that if read side to side, everything would be clear. That's how it was for me with first two chapters. This is one of the reasons why I'm rereading entire story since 3 chapters are completed now, so I could read the new pages...with proper speed, so to speak. I'm sure everything will feel clear once I do this.

And I'd like to add, that my comments are usually very spontanious. I think something - I write it. XD I wanna share it. But these are raw, half-impulsive, emotion-based reactions, so I might be the one being mistaken - please always take my comments with a grain of salt. And don't think, that if I'm mistaken, or someone else is, then that means you should water this down for us (I kinda see that tendency in your replies, I'm saying "I don't get smth" You're replying "aw, we should have done this better" nou, I actually prefer when the work of fiction challenges my brain cells xD)

@ Fangirl

You give a lot of feedback and you tell it how you see it which is valuable. We are always concerned about the pacing and how understandable the behaviour of the characters is, exactly because of the update schedule. And believe us if it was economically viable we would have more updates a week.

That's why I always feel we could have done more.
