The joyous reunion.
Is fire hot or cold?
Some XHTML Allowed
nobody... except ken
Man he is so seriously pissed.
"Oi"? What is he, British?
First time I see Ken REALLY angry.Not just his regular rage.
UH-OH I think ken's about to divide Nataku by zero
nataku's lack of mustache will be his undoing. All proper bad guys draw their power from the mustache.
and good guys get them from beards. also all this referencing mustaches made me think of this song: http://www.weebls-stuff.com/so...
okay......I think this just went from omg i'm going to kill you to I ken will Kick your baby
WAIT! I KNOW!! maru's gonna grab an RPG from hammerspace and say: "your argument is invalid, i has a rocket launcher"
dangit, someone already beat me to it with the Inigo Montoya joke.
Nataku Wataro versus Ken Daisuke!
Round 1... Fight!
Ken Daisuke " Let's do this! My unforgivable past!(bonus points if anyone actually got it XD)
I had to go back through the recent comics to notice that Nataku was missing his last finger on his left hand, then I noticed that in this comic (second panel) Nataku was drawn without the missing finger on his left hand (as in, he has all five) Was this a mistake or am I seeing it wrong?
It's not missing entirely, just the top two bones. You can see that in the panel you're referring to.
Not sure how this'll go down.
Nataku is pretty cocky and thats normally Ken's downfall in a fight. He underestimates his opponents in his attempt to keep up the badassery and ends up getting too beat up before he can go in at full force.
But I don't think Ken is going to be cocky this time. He's gonna go in with the most blind rage we've seen yet and if Nataku stays cocky, Ken might just have a chance of getting a strong hit in before Nataku has a chance to take the fight seriously.
Main problem is that while Ken might be able to negate Nataku's strength, its unlikely he can match him in skill, much like the two monks.
Presuming that they both need to survive this battle for the story, I'm not sure how Ken's going to pull out of this one since everyone else is tied up at the moment... Maybe Maru will grab the prince and hold him hostage or something while they're busy.
Pfft throwing threats mr.baboon? Hope his neck atoms get split by a large ass sword.
... I feel bad for 9-fingers right now.
Nataku of the niiine fingers and the Ken of dooom! <wife clobbers=""> </wife>
It started with a butcher in the Wataro clan...
" It's like someone flipped the switch from "on" to "even more on" "
I believe the technical term is... "It just went to 11!"
Ha! I've been waiting for this! Other than the comic being amazing I want to note how awesome it was going onto the main site and seeing that closeup of his FURY FILLED eyes as the comic preview. I knew right then and there that is was on!
Oh, yeah! It's on like Genghis Khan!
It rhymes. Don't question it.
KungFuKlobber's epic wit should never be questioned
ahem. i believe the phrase u are looking for is "its on like a prawn"
So I'm going to be the downer here and point out that his left hand has five fingers in panel 2, and that's the one that's supposed to be missing a pinky.
whooops! I'll have to fix that tonight.
Maybe the first frame in #433 too. I'm afraid I had to go looking for the nine-fingeredness.
And the Ronin said to the Man in Blue; "I will go up to the nine-fingered man, and I will say, 'My name is Kenta Daisuke. You killed my father. Prepare to die.'"
Dammit forgot "Hallo."
From the time you ripped me from my mother's armsI knew you'd meet death before it was too long.Although questions arose in my mind, would I be man enough?Against wrong, choose right and be standin' upFrom that first long and terrible nightTook only a second to know I had to make things rightYou killing my clan, got me kinda upsetyou won't be going home safe with my blade in your neck
Then to my knees, and I begged the kami please please please,Let me kill this wataro, that's all I needshatred, good Sake, and a big blade tooMom and dad today, I plan avenge you
Just the two of us, I'm gonna make sure that you dieJust the two of usJust the two of us, Your head is gonna fly up in the sky Just the two of us, you and I
nrrrrg.... now i need to come up with a parody....
Nice song ! What is the original one ?
"Just the two of us." by Will Smith lol
Lol, the original is by Bill Withers and it prolly older than Will Smith.
O RLY XD I didn't know that
thus the lol at the end.
"Oi" ... ? Is he an expatriate British workman turned warlord?
Oi is like sayng Hey in Japanese, it's just prononced like that.
I know both cultures have this phoneme, but seeing it there with that spelling just ... it registered as British first. Hilarious confusion ensued.
Oh, Nataku. I think you've pressed all of Ken's buttons at once.
Nice job breaking it, villain.
He hates the nickname 9-finger Nataku so much he's angling for a new one.
How does 0-head Nataku sound?
not as awesome as no-head-nataku
Please tell me I'm no the only one who went: "ohmygodohmygodohmygod...this is gonna be awesome"
i think anybody reading this comic regularly just went "SQUEEE!!!!"and started twitching with thoughts of how incredibly awesome the next few installments are going to be.
Don't worry you're not. So whats the bet? Either Ken pummels Nataku, or (and much more likely) he fights hard, gets beat and becomes more hate fuelled for their next encounter where he kills Nataku in a glorious bloody rage.
fifty bucks on option 2
thousand yen on one
ALEX! I love what you've been doing with the special coloring lately! The HATE panel is amazing. The shading on Nataku is also tops.
I always like your comments. While I just think "Page looks cool," you bring to my attention specifically what I should look for that makes it a cool-looking page.
Panel three, with the focus on the hateful eyes, makes me want to see this fight all the more.
Thanks! It is because Alex and I are in constant competition and complimenting him lulls him into a false sense of security.
I WILL CRUSH HIM.
Nooo! I fear and despise your excessively positive compliments!!
