    Love the fact that violence is used to solve every competition.

    I actual did the math on the number of combat rounds in a year when I saw the number.

    5256000/365 days = 14400
    14400/24 hours = 600
    600/60 minutes = 10
    10/10 rounds per minute = 1

    The balloon being held aloft by the Air elementals was a nice touch.

    Band competitions and beauty pageants will never be the same in my eyes.

    Goodbye, Judy. It was nice to meet you. Hello, Cathy.

    I like the implication given by the previous empire being named Justania. The empire of blood clearly has a blood theme and is Evil, so Justania would likely be about being Just and be ruled in a Good based fashion.

    Poor good guys.

    Whenever I see a gigantic strip filled with new character designs, the first thing that goes through my head is "That must have taken a while to draw"
    Thanks, Giant.

    It's not really a parody of anything in particular. It parodies a play called Rent and Seaseme Street but that's about it. Otherwise it just reinforces the idea that the EoB is evil. They way it does so earns some laughs though. (I especially liked the marching band bit as I'm in my own schools marching band and we just wrapped up a great season.)

    *Snicker*. Random. And funny.

    "Will eventually regain partial motor control of their hands ... " is this a band joke I'm not getting? I was in high school band but I'm missing it...

    I don't think its a band joke so much as a violence joke. The Platelet Band lost the competition, presumably, because the winners inflicted so much damage on their hands/nervous systems that the Platelets were left unable to play their instruments.

    Actually I like how every strip the tyranny becomes a tiny bit more blatantly obvious, yet Elan still manages to deny the alignment of his dad. Is it out of excitement that he finally has a dad, or just good old Elan stupidity?

    The last two panels was the cherry on the cream.
