Mine was something like:

Kokoro
Vedika
Cassidy
Zoe

Vedika needs more screen time and psychic stuff IMO, that Chekhovís gun hasnít gone off yet.

Agreed, feels like she's got huge potential. I wonder what other psychic girls in the setting have been like. Presumably they've been kind of ineffectual in combat up til now because the monsters are mindless. Vedika might be key to taking on a sapient creature like Goops

Cassidy was awful, but she didn't deserve what she got. I guess the silver lining is that she never had to find out HP was teaming up with Undine.

I was already feeling a little bad for Cassidy given her cancellation for being an rear end in a top hat teenager, but her getting iced really makes it hard to not put her up pretty high since she didn't get a chance at a redemption arc.

Cassidy was a jerk teen who was extremely well realized and had hands down the coolest power set weíve seen yet (Vedika has potential to cause some really cool mindscape shenanigans when someone touches her while linked). I hope she comes back in some form for that reason.

I don't buy that she's dead. Not sure what else the alternative is, but her ability was "kill one image, the other becomes the real one" and both were still images and got killed at the same time while fighting. No body left behind (that we've been shown yet, at least), and Goops was surprised by the outcome too. (Or was she more surprised to have lost an eye?)

Plus yeah, that was a kickass power and a lot of development to put into a character you kill off like one chapter later.

Yeah I'll genuinely be a bit sad if she's dead*, it'd mean we get introduced to the first character who's got actual unsympathetic personality traits without being irredeemable/an actual monster, and then the very next chapter they die screaming and alone while getting owned by the plot in every conceivable way.

*or 'just' dead, feels like the setting has room for in-between states

I'm good with it either way really. If she comes back, that's rad. IF she doesn't, I think it's a very effective and well told tragedy. She was an rear end in a top hat, but she didn't deserve this.

I assume that even if she's dead For Real (& i think she is) they'll still find out more about her to add to the tragedy and the characters will probably have a big talk about how things could have gone what they might have done etc

There will probably be a "redemption" for her as they come to understand her after its too late to have done anything.

Anyone who didn't see that panel coming (eventually, at least) really needs to teach me their secret to remaining so oblivious.

Also, to predict more of the blatantly obvious: Tessa's getting recruited by Goops and will be a villain character against Undine.

I was mostly convinced that Undine was looking at something behind Kokoro in the previous comic.

Had that been true, all sorts of things could have happened in today's comic that would have put the kiss off the table for awhile.

I can see that. Yeah, that'd have put off the inevitable for a bit, but it was obvious as hell that the kiss was coming eventually.

I like that it's happened now, when we're at most mid-way through the story (and probably a bit less) - obviously other recent events are gonna distract from it for a while, but it still leaves plenty of room to show the actual relationship instead of the genre trope of: confess feelings -> defeat big bad -> smooch -> the end

I'm curious what the mouseover text on her death page is about. "Take this promise to the end of you." I saw this thread yesterday and ended up binge-reading all fifteen chapters instead of sleeping, like a big dumb dope so I'm curious if I breezed over something or missed poo poo in previous page mouseover texts.

Captain Oblivious

Right in the Kokoro



To think out loud in a very tangential way that might make sense to maybe two people other than me:

Sometimes, Sleepless Domain gives me real Big O vibes. The isolated city, the "don't worry about it it's fine that's how it's always been" attitude of its residents, Tessa's eyes going all static-y when her perception is being hosed with reminds me a lot of Roger's episodic flashbacks/distortions in their aesthetic. Even purple hair girl's pale skin and affectless demeanor gives me Dorothea flashbacks. I dunno! I doubt Cagle is in any way ACTUALLY drawing on Big O but it's just a funny resemblance that sticks out to me sometimes.

Goops is Schwartzwald in this analogy or something
