The music itself is changing.


I think by not having any "MEAN WHILE"s LB is slowing down the pace of the story. If we just saw something else for a bit maybe we could come back a bit later to the fight, and we'd be a bit fresher to it.

But Garry slapped Shadow around like a rag doll in chapter 3? At least I think that was him.

I'm honestly enjoying this. I really do think the main reason people aren't happy is just because fights aren't well suited for a page a day format.

If you could just sit down and read this entire fight from start to finish, it would probably not seem to drag nearly as much.

To me it's still enjoyable because I honestly can't tell who is going to win, but the back and forths seem relatively reasonable.

I just read through nearly 2 thousand posts to get to the end of this thread, wasting 5 hours of precious sleep, and I must say: I think the fight kicks rear end. Read once a day, I can see it dragging on for too long, and if I had to guess, reading it all continuously would make the one-liners seem cluttered, but experiencing spaced out like it is in the thread really gives it a nice flow.

That said, I can understand wanting an intermission to see what the other characters are doing. I want to know how Tails' training with Ronald is going.

After Ronald, Tails only has Arthur, Pori, Frogger and Leap Frog to train with.

All of those are potentially hilarious.

I'm lost. If Demaro controls vines, how did he not realise there was one around his leg? I mean, presumably he put it there?

Garry is an earthbender and he's using that power to control the vines now. He just needed Demaro to plant them.

I'm still upset that plantbending is being used by a nonwaterbender but lol i must sound like such a avatar nerd right now.

For all the complaints about the fight, it hard to deny that it is quite visually interesting, especially compared to the normal story arc.

Demaro has such an emotional expression, while Garry is literally stone faced.

How do you guys read real comics if you can't take fight scenes? I guess in a real comic you can just flip pages till it looks like they aren't fighting anymore but I gotta say I don't get this mindset.

Page-a-day strips and regular comic books are two different mediums, and it's much easier to keep this sort of fight's momentum going for the 26-or-whatever pages when you can read it all in one go, as opposed to reading a bit and then having to wait a day. I don't mind it myself, I think it's been consistently entertaining even if it has ground the plot to a standstill, but I do get why some people might find it aggravating.

They were sometimes broken up by episodes with the supporting characters standing on the sidelines talking about how powerful Goku is.

And the actual DBZ comics, by comparison, are a brisk and entertaining read with fewer back-and-forth deos ex machina and virtually no "powering up" times.

I don't mind this fight, and especially enjoy Gary's taunts. While waiting for it to wrap up, I reread Tails Gets Trolled up to this point and I suggest you all do the same. I think Knuckles is my favorite character overall.

Haha yeah I really love how people are actually defending this, literally everyone started reading this because it was about Shadow flipping off internet trolls or Elmer Fudd raising the dead. If anyone is legitimately and unironically enjoying this I'm really sorry for them.

Ok, I forgot about that one and now I remember it was hilarious because the concept was so silly.

Didn't they redo the series a while back and cut out all the bullshit? If I'm remembering correctly, it cut the show down from 300+ episodes to something like 120.

JazzFlight, I just need to give you some belated love for the last song. That is easily my favorite one of the whole bunch. I've thought for a while now that your musical style in this project is well-suited for TGT. You're really good at taking lots of bizarre non-rhyming text and bending it into a meter that actually works somehow. And doing the whole drat Kermit story was like, the utter pinnacle of that. The simplicity of the chorus is a great contrast, too!
