    Yeah, I have to second that. It's somewhere between "First post!" and "O RLY?" in terms of tedium to mention/link a trope.

    That was great. Glad to see some progress on that one. For some reason the side of evil always seems to destroy itself.

    Kubota, I've got good news and bad news.

    The good news is, you just made Magnificent Bastard.

    The bad news is, you're about to get your ass handed to you by a bard.

    I liked it fine.

    This plot really seems to be wrapping up. And Kubota?

    Not the smartest move ever.

    Oooh crap....That can't be good. At least the samurais are dead...

    But what is Kubota gonna say now?

    "Go with the Diago family and loose Therkla, or go to Therkla and loose the Diago family?"

    The couple doesn't looks like they're in any mortal peril (besides being bound and gagged, but Elan's still there) and the other samurai pplz are dead or running.

    It's like Kubota never cracked open a "Theatrical for Dummies" book.

    Man I hope Therkla dies, I really don't like her.
    I also hope that Elan Incredible Hulks Kubota because he is a crap villain by comparison to Xykon, Redcloak and Nale. (Bring back the real story, this ninjas on boats stuff is boring.)

    Yeah. He's even lesser of a villain than anything else. If anything, he's like the bandits the OotS had to face a while back.

    I like him as a transitional villain, though.
    But I agree that it's time to get back to the big ones.

    I asumme it's a 'stay here and deal with me or take her to get medical help thing'. Plus isn't one of the ninjas still alive?

    Interesting little toy, that needle-ring thing. That's pretty cool.

    It seems like for the "Hero's Choice", House Kato needs to be in a little more danger than they are right now.

    Ha, ha, poor guy. I was wondering when a poisoned ninja ring was going to appear in this comic. I thought, when Kubota had his hands behind his back, 'wait a sec. . . did they tie his hands off-camera? Ohh, poison ring, cool. . .' I also noticed at least one ninja got away, to be Kubota's new hench-ninja.
